Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity:

There can be an unusually warm loving bond between you, though your temperaments are quite different. LEO is very proud and wants recognition, appreciation, respect, and love from a partner.

LEO has difficulty accepting and expressing needs, sadness, or weakness, and is uncomfortable when CANCER expresses doubts, insecurities, weaknesses, or moodiness. LEO is the more dominant of the two of you and is likely to take the lead in your relationship — which is fine with CANCER, who has no need to be on top. You are both proud, vibrant, warm, but rather self-centered individuals.

You both want to be the center of attention, and you may not want to share the starring role with your partner. Although it may not be obvious to others, both of you are very self-conscious individuals, and you are very concerned with your own personal creativity, personal recognition, and personal performance. Both of you are best suited to work that is very personal and creative — being one inconspicuous part of a large corporation is not for you.

Your relationship is likely to be either extraordinarily happy and fulfilling or else disastrous — with no middle ground. You tend to either adore each other or despise each other.

You are both very loyal, but you must respect and believe in your partner. If you ever feel that your partner lacks integrity or honesty, or is competing with you, or does not appreciate or understand your creative work and motivations, then the love and admiration that you have for each other turns sour quickly. You two are very different!

This can be a very warm and mutually fulfilling relationship. You both need and love romantic gestures, the giving and receiving of gifts, etc. Personal appearances and attractiveness is important to both of you as well, and you both are somewhat vain. Of the two of you, LEO is the stronger individual, and the balance of power in your relationship may be somewhat lopsided. However, LIBRA has a highly developed sense of fairness and equality, and will protest sooner or later if LEO begins to expect obeisance all of the time.

Both of you are very proud, stubborn, strong-willed individuals and you are attracted to the strength of character that you sense in each other. There is a feeling of conquest between you that may serve to intensify the excitement of your attraction to each other.

However, your strong wills may also prove to be a problem in a long-term relationship. You face the possibility that your combined inflexibility will make it difficult for the two of you to reach mutually satisfying decisions and both of you tend to stubbornly resist compromising when your preferences are different.

A battle of wills is likely to ensue!

Another potential problem is jealousy or lop-sided bonding. Warmth, enthusiasm, vitality, and joy are kindled when the two of you are together, and there is great magnetism between you. This is a mutually beneficial relationship which promises lots of good times and a very active life together. In your personal style and tastes, also, this difference is very apparent: CAPRICORN prefers the classics, simple elegance, and either a very conservative, traditional style or an austere less-is-more, keep-it-simple style.

LEO has a generous, lavish hand and loves rich color, warmth, and brilliance that borders on gaudiness. Sometimes, this translates into emotional terms also. One thing you do have in common: you both take your commitments to heart, and you prize fidelity and loyalty. There are significant differences between you though.
