It’s possible these two will meet at a work-related conference or through common friends. Their first dates will probably be in fancy places that serve the best wines and food. Leo lovers are known for being proud, fun and expansive whilst Capricorns are demanding and very interested in climbing the social ladder.

As far as self-confidence goes, they both have it. Capricorns are somewhat reserved and see their potential partners from a distance. They analyze everything before they take action. Leos are playful and they love the Goat’s dry sense of humor.

When Leo and Capricorn fall in love …

The Leo-Capricorn couple will definitely be good looking and stylish. They will be attracted to one another from the very first moment they will meet.

It’s good they won’t fight for the same place in the spotlight. The Leo will be at the center of everyone’s attention and will love it, while their Capricorn lover will keep the darkest corner.

Because they are both ambitious and they want to achieve their goals, they will succeed at many things in life when they’ll be together. If they’ll both work towards the same target, then hold tight, because they’ll be a force.

The Leo will be the head of communications, and the Capricorn will supervise the quality aspect. Attracted to one another sexually as well, these two will make love like in the movies. They should be thankful for what they’re having together, but they should also work for their relationship.

Neither of them is able to understand infidelity. The Capricorn is too committed, and the Leo takes too much pride in his or her relationship. While the Capricorn will do anything to make their relation work, the Leo will be monogamous just to show the Cap how faithful he or she is.

They both have an energy that prepares them for future challenges no matter the situation. It’s enough to have one another, and they will succeed at everything they will be doing.

The Capricorn is very career-oriented, people in this sign are usually the managers or the CEOs of big companies.

Leo is just like the lion in the jungle, which means the king. He or she will take risks and perform activities meant to give them a confidence boost. These are a few of the reasons why these two will enjoy spending their existence together.

The Capricorn will keep things grounded and realistic, while the Leo will teach the Goat how the seize the moment. They are both very intelligent, practical, stubborn and bossy.

Perhaps the Capricorn is a little bit more all this than the Leo. While they have so many things in common, they will still be curious about each other. Capricorns love to watch Leos dressing up in colorful outfits and having witty conversations.

They will be extremely satisfied when their Leo will try to express his or her authority in front of others. It’s true the Capricorn may sometimes be annoyed that the Leo spends money recklessly, but that’s life.

Capricorns are more financially stable and they tend to save for the future. Their strong connection will help them forget all about what makes them different. The Capricorn is shy, calculated and tender, and the Leo is expansive, dramatic and passionate.

The Leo and Capricorn relationship

The Capricorn Leo relationship would get a 4 or a 5 on a scale from 1 to 10. They may find it difficult to understand the perspective from which the other sees the world. Also, these two would need to compromise a lot if they want to make it as a couple.

The beginning of their relationship will be critical for them. They are both slow to begin things and the Capricorn is known not to trust people so easily. Showing each other who they actually are and setting up the boundaries will help them start on the right foot.

The very first few dates are crucial for the Leo Capricorn relationship. These are actually the moments in which the partners will decide if they should continue pursuing one another or not. If they have concluded it is time to have something together, they should immediately step back and offer each other some space.

The Capricorn has to put up with the fact that the Leo will never be methodical, organized or too practical. Besides, he or she must allow the Lion to lead because these natives don’t like it when someone else tries to control things.

And Capricorns are pretty controlling themselves. Cautious, conservative and pragmatic, the Capricorn will confuse the romantic and cheerful Leo. The Leo shouldn’t expect their partner to express love because the Capricorn is too reserved for that.

The Leo will also have to slow down on making scenes and throwing tantrums. No one will be able to dominate the Capricorn, and the Leo will be annoyed by this as Leos are domineering and always in charge. Leos need to boast and advertise themselves all the time, attention seekers, they will try and compete for the Capricorn’s heart, and the Goat won’t even understand what’s going on.

For him or her, things have to be laid back and the partners of a couple should have independence to make a great career over the years. They need support, but not in a clingy way. Knowing someone is there for them would be enough.

Leo and Capricorn marriage compatibility

From an astrological point of view, the Capricorn-Leo couple is a match as long as they play to each other’s strengths. Earth signs like the Capricorn want to build a home and have a stable relationship. The Fire signs like the Leo are more adventurous and they want to explore.

Because one wants consistency and the other wants freedom, these two will undoubtedly fight. The Leo will feel trapped when someone will want to tie him or her down, the Earth sign will never relax if things keep being surprising.

But as long and the Capricorn and the Leo learn to deal with what makes them different, they can resist the test of time as a couple and form a happy and fulfilled marriage.

They both value people with a plan although the Leo is not the one to make too good plans, as people in this sign usually go with the flow and don’t need to know too much about things in advance.

The Capricorn will think of everything in detail and the Leo will respect this in their partner. The calm and centered Capricorn will never understand why the Leo has to be so loud and expansive. The latter want people who smile all the time in their life, once they’ll notice their Capricorn is not all laughter, they might even break up.

Sexual compatibility

The Capricorn needs to be seduced for a very long time in order for him or her to detach from career and day-to-day problems. Capricorns become sensual and passionate as soon as you have managed to put down their exterior walls.

But patience is absolutely necessary for this to happen whilst, their partners, the Leos are very fiery between the sheets. Sexually demanding and with a high libido, Lions like to dominate and to experiment in bed.

When together between the sheets, the Leo and the Capricorn will get completely lost in one another, but the Goat may find the Lion too demanding. It’s also probable the Leo will get bored with the traditional sex their partner enjoys having.

The downsides of this union

It’s essential that the Leo-Capricorn couple don’t disrespect each other. This danger exists as they both are authoritative and judgmental. The materialism of the Leo and the workaholic tendencies of the Capricorn can also disturb the balance in their relationship.

Astrology says clearly that these two signs are not at all in sync. Financial problems between them will be something normal. Capricorns need to know how much money they have, while Leos spend everything on expensive clothes and presents for others.

They are both hard workers, but the Leo seems to not understand the value of money. As a couple, they should never allow the Leo take care of their finances, they would only put themselves in debt.

Besides all this, the Capricorn and the Leo also see fun differently. The Capricorn can’t resist to include responsibilities in his or her fun activities, while the Leo wouldn’t even think of such thing. Leos need to go on adventures, meet new people and be at the center of attention in order to have fun.

What to remember about Leo and Capricorn

Each one of these two has the personality the other tends to hate in people. The royal Leo is extravagant, while the Cap is too serious. If they have a chance at being together for a long time, we will find out together.

Capricorns believe relationships are hard work. These people are reserved, serious and a little bit too boring for the flamboyant Leo, who is too extroverted, making their mature partner take as much distance as possible.

At a first glance, anyone would say this relationship wouldn’t work, but these two are extremely devoted and astrology can’t really impede true love from happening. But what’s funny is that what makes these two so similar is also what brings them together.

And what makes them the same is their wish to control. Capricorns like to give orders and to be the bosses. They won’t accept the Lion to rule them. Leos are as well the ones that need to lead. After all, they are the kings of the jungle, so they won’t listen to the Cap’s advice, no matter what situation they may be in.

A relationship between two bosses can easily be compromised. The connection between a Leo and a Capricorn may be faulty from the beginning. It’s loud with quiet, spontaneous with organized.

But if they would accept each other and look closer at what they’re having together, they would realize they in fact complement one another.

Capricorns tend to focus too much on their careers and their goals, and Leos can bring some brightness into their life. Too much work and no play can make Caps too pessimistic and moody. Someone like a Leo can bring a smile to their face.

Being next to Leos may be just what Capricorns need in order to be happy and more fun. And when they are happy, success comes much easier.

In return, the Capricorn will make the Leo stronger and more focused so he or she can be in the center of attention. Problems may appear when the Leo’s ego will clash with the Cap’s stubbornness.

Usually, Capricorns believe that everything they are doing is perfect and that they don’t need to change anything in the way they view the world.

Leos hate to be criticized and they think they are always right. Both these people need to overcome what makes them weak if they want love.

Because they are Fire signs, Leos can bother Capricorns with their hot temper. Earth signs, Goats can cut some of the enthusiasm in Leos. If the relationship is to work, they would need to change these attitudes.
