When Fire Signs Ignite

When you encounter a fully inspired fire sign, just like a fire, it’s hard to look away. They have a passion for life that is known to set hearts of any sign ablaze! It certainly helps that the fire signs are famous for their outgoing personalities.
Fire signs are known for adoring the limelight so it’s no wonder you’d find many of them are celebrities. Some celebrity fire signs include Elton John, Barack Obama, and Brad Pitt.
While the fire is brilliant on its own, it’s even more intense when they pair up. What happens when two of the fire signs form a friendship? Let’s look closer at Aries and Leo for the most exciting pair up of the signs.
The Traits of Leos and Aries
Aries and Leo are masculine energies. Aries is ruled by Mars (aggressive/ soldier energy) and Leo by the Sun (self). This is a dynamic full of passion, competition, and ego. When these two signs come together you can expect adventure and excitement.
The Aries is a natural leader, and the Leo being one to follow through, makes this possibly one of the strongest couplings of all signs. Because both signs are ego driven and up for a challenge, these two signs can carry a deep understanding and respect for one another. This is of course if the two signs can learn to let the other share the lead with one another.
Both signs enjoy being in the focus of attention as much as possible. To fully understand this dynamic you have to be familiar with a few of the positive and negative characteristics that make up a Leo and Aries.
Traits of the Leo
- Straight Forward
- Sometimes Violent and Possessive
Traits of the Aries
A Little Friendly Competition to Keep the Fire Blazing
While the Aries may be initially attracted to Leo’s charisma and the Leo attracted to the Aries’ lively spirit, this friendship will be maintained by their shared passion and energy for all challenges they take on. The friendly competition will be a source of playful interaction and fulfill each other’s need to be challenged. This competitive nature will also allow the pair to take turns taking charge which is very important in this friendship. As long as the competitive interactions stay playful there will be little to no friction. The trick here is keeping egos tamed so no one sign will constantly dominate the other. Leo will need to take care to keep his or her dominant behavior to a minimum. The arrogance of these two signs will surely surface in this pairing during a competitive engagement. Aries must be careful not to deflate Leo’s ego.
From Start to Finish
This pair is such a powerhouse because of their complementing strengths. While the Aries is known for his or her ability to take charge to initiate the task at hand, the Aries also tends to want to move on quickly to the next challenge before he or she has even completed their first task. The Leo, on the other hand, isn’t best at initiating but tends to follow through with tasks that were started. Aries can encourage Leo to start, and in turn, Leo encourages Aries to keep going. While this sounds harmonious, there’s one catch. Leo can be very impatient and may become frustrated with Aries for bouncing around from task to task. It’s important that the two signs find a way to work around this but it will not be easy as the Arian is stubborn to a fault. If there is anyone who can manage, it’s the Leo. Leos put their whole heart into relationships and will find a way to make it work.
The Romantic Leo and Passionate Aries
When something a little more than a friendship forms between these two masculine energies, a passionate and exciting relationship may spark. It will be hard for the Aries to keep his or her sense of adventure at bay while Leo is showing off his or her romantic side. This romantic coupling is not unlike those out of a romance novel. Because Leo is so loyal and devoted to relationships, the Aries will feel comfortable and free to explore this unknown territory of their new love interest. Aries, being a passionate sign, will shower Leo in love and affection which complements Leo’s ego very well. Both signs will do well building each other up with their similar positive outlook and their growing admiration for one another. Both signs share a similar love for the exciting parts of life and they will have a true understanding of one another. Leo will need to stay on his or her toes to keep the fleeting Aries from bouncing off to the next new thing. However, if the Aries isn’t careful his or her wondering mind could put off the loyal Leo, who gives his or her all and expects it in return.
The Strong Bond
Both signs ooze confidence and both unafraid to open up to others. Both being willing to communicate is a recipe for a strong connection between the two fire elements. Both Aries and Leo are up for excitement and have many of the same likes and dislikes. The bond and connection between these two signs will deepen and mature as their mutual respect and adoration for one another will continue to strengthen. As long as the two signs compromise with one another, they can enjoy the spotlight together while nurturing a great relationship along the way.
When the Fire’s Out of Control
We have all heard the saying “When things were good, they were great. When things were bad they were horrible.” This statement couldn’t be truer when talking about the Leo and Aries pairing. Passion can go from one extreme to the other and both signs are certainly passionate. When you have a Leo and an Aries at odds with one another, there may be yelling, screaming and possibly even physical fighting. The Leo is unfortunately known for a tendency to be violent at times. The two signs will probably compete for the lead at times. Neither sign is comfortable taking the sidelines on a regular basis and will be persistent in taking that lead. The stubborn Aries will be exceptionally hard to dominate which will cause a lot of inner conflict for the Leo. Being an ego-driven sign, the inability to fully dominate the Aries may be an additional blow to the Leo.
The Aries is more courageous and confrontational than Leo. As stated earlier, the Aries has a need to explore the new. In an aging relationship, these characteristics may turn off dedicated Leo. Leo may begin to feel as if he or she is putting more effort into the relationship than the Aries is putting in. The good news for this pair is that both signs are committed to one another and willing to put in the extra work if needed.
Aries should be careful not to deflate Leo’s ego as it’s very important to him or her. Take care in the way you confront Leo. Remember that Leo is devoted and loyal to you. Leo will put everything he or she has into this relationship. Even if that means allowing you to take the spotlight every once in a while. Be sure to do the same for your Leo. Leo will be romantic for the long haul. If you’re in a romantic relationship with Leo, be sure to tell him you appreciate and adore him. Boosting his ego will get you far.
Leos who allow their Aries to take the lead once in a while will find it creates a great balance in their relationship. It also keeps Aries interested in the spontaneity of dominant rotation. Keep in mind that Aries is passionate and confrontational. When Aries is heated over something, it can turn into a much bigger debate than you expected. Leo, remember to keep your cool. Even in the heat of passion, you will regret turning to violence.
To sum it all up, The Aries and Leo friendship is one filled with energy and excitement. The passion these two fire signs have for life can be a good thing as well as a bad thing depending on the situation. These two signs have the potential to be a great match whether it’s friendly or romantic. Loyal Leo and Passionate Aries are a combination of a wonderful fulfilling romance.
