The Lion and the Goat

Neither Kelly or I are big believers in Astrology. I mean each person tends to find the thing that suits them in the words and ignores the things that don't suit them. Maybe this isn't any different. But I thought it was charming to say the least when Kelly brought something similar to my attention earlier today.

"When Leo and Capricorn join together in a love match, they form a mutually supportive union. Capricorn is more conservative, hard working and traditional in outlook. Leo is a firm believer in hard work, but tends to get things done through their charm and social skills. However, both are extremely devoted, especially to teach other. Although they may seem to be an unlikely couple on the surface, their love will grow as they discover similarities.

Both partners enjoy comfort and pampering and love working toward their goals. Leo and Capricorn both relish the spotlight and material possessions. Leo can be outrageous, while Capricorn is more classical, of a more simple nature. Because both Signs are so determined, with a bit of careful attention they will sympathize with one another. Both partners will soon realize that they have much to learn from one another; Leo can show Capricorn a good time and Capricorn can prove to Leo the value of hard work and traditional values.

Leo is ruled by the Sun and Capricorn is ruled by the Planet Saturn. The Sun is about ego and self, and it radiates warmth and light. Leo indeed radiates this kind of energy and enthusiasm. Saturn is about responsibility and hard work. These two can learn from one another’s diversity. The Sun represents life, and Saturn represents tenacity; as long as they pay attention to one another, their combination is a good one, leading to many completed projects.

Leo is a Fire Sign and Capricorn is an Earth Sign. Leo wants creative freedom, while Capricorn desires professional security. This combination creates a balanced romantic relationship. They will enjoy their time together and save time to pursue personal interests as well. As long as they continually reassure one another of their significance, conflicts are not usually harmful to the relationship.

Leo is a Fixed Sign and Capricorn is a Cardinal Sign. Both can be stubborn, opinionated and ambitious. Both partners tend to persevere when working toward their goals. The Goat prefers life to be steady and ordered. Leo loves wild times and embraces the unexpected. Once they agree that the match is a good one, they will never forget its value and will devote themselves to maintaining the relationship.

What’s the best aspect of the Leo-Capricorn relationship? It’s their devotion to handling the task in front of them. Both Signs have strong personalities, and though they may at times seem an unlikely pair, this is a case of opposites attracting. This duo has a good time with one another, and this facet of the relationship keeps them wanting more."

Similarly when I look at the signs for Kat and I find the things that I believe to be good and positive and "well maybe..." on the things not so matchy-matchy.

Sagittarius and Leo

When Leo and Sagittarius join together in a love match, the result is often fireworks! Both Signs are extremely dynamic and enjoy life to the fullest. This couple is full of life and fun to be around, with each person encouraging the other to aim high! Sagittarius’s philosophical tendency warrants a distraction to Leo’s obsession with the larger-than-life. The two will have genuine admiration and respect for one another. Both are warm, charismatic and charming; people enjoy being in the energy this couple radiates.

Both Signs can be impatient but endearing, and Leo may be annoyed by Sagittarius’s flirting, but there’s never a dull moment in their relationship. Sagittarius sees the world as a textbook they must study from, while Leo acts as the gracious host. Both are extremely social, but it is vitally important to Leo that they feel that they are in control of the conversation. Leo is the Lion, the leader, while Sagittarius is the Archer, slowly taking the time to survey their target and feel the nuances of difference in their approach. Both Signs are usually respected by others, and it’s important that each remembers to treat the other with the utmost respect as well.

Leo is ruled by the Sun and Sagittarius is ruled by the Planet Jupiter. Both are masculine energy archetypes, and together they make a good combination — they understand one another because they are so similar. The Sun is about Self and Jupiter is about expansion and excess, together providing a personal and outward focus on themselves and the world, although sometimes they can overexert themselves. They’re highly compatible with lots of energy, and can be a wonderful couple in any setting or situation.

Both Leo and Sagittarius are Fire Signs. This tends to be a very heated and passionate relationship. They both have boundless energy, and can seem the only ones able to keep up with one another’s intensity. Although Sagittarius may become exhausted by Leo’s expansive ego, their differences of opinion won’t last long — Sagittarius has moved on to the next project and Leo’s optimism and need for a fan club overcome a petty argument.

Leo is a Fixed Sign and Sagittarius is a Mutable Sign. Sagittarius provides Leo with the deeper understanding they may be lacking, while Leo can fine-tune Sagittarius’s charm and social graces. Sagittarius may be irritated by Leo’s bossiness, shallow vanity and tendency to sulk. However, they are both loyal and devoted to one another, and the rewards of their union outweigh the minor setbacks.

What’s the best aspect of the Leo-Sagittarius relationship? It’s the willingness to work as a team and the mutual admiration they exhibit when dedicated to seeing things through. This duo complements one another with a combined attention to personal and world affairs. They both know their place in the relationship. Their comparable high energy and fiery passion makes them a versatile love match.

I think it's a fun exercise to focus on those good things about a relationship with someone. Or choose those positive things you can in life and sort of self-program toward them. I could certainly do with some focus on being more social and more vibrant. But I like that Kelly brought this idea to me. It inflates my ego a little that she thought of me, even if it's in some magical way she doesn't necessarily by into. I'm a dreamer, and sometimes a little magic and imagination is a good thing.
