As a romantic match, a Leo woman and a Capricorn man can often be a tumultuous mixture. However, for those with the drive to make the relationship work, the match can be a compatible one.
The Leo Woman
The representation of Leo as the Lion is one of the most accurate representations in the entire Zodiac. The Leo woman is full of pomp and personality. Negatively speaking, she can also have too high a sense of her own value and a slightly inflated head.
In relationships, the Leo woman is full of passion and romance. If the day calls for a love poem, she can provide it--but will also expect the same from her partner! As a natural born leader, she likes to have the upper hand in relationships. She is also the type to send her partner a thank-you note and gift to return their kindness.
Leo women know that they are in high demand. As an outgoing person, they appreciate being the center of attention and expect to always be there. She likes someone who will put her on a pedestal and try to woo her attentions. Flattery will get you everywhere with the Leo woman. Appearances are also important to her, from clothes to romantic gestures.
When in love, she is kind and passionate. However, she may become miffed if her kindness is not acknowledged. The Leo woman does not like to be forgotten.
The Capricorn Man
Capricorn men move slowly in relationships. They tend to take lengthy time periods to figure out where they really are. This is partly because of their deep sense of loyalty. They first want to figure out where they are and how they feel, the perks of the person they're with and where the relationship can go. Early on, the Capricorn man will know if this relationship is marriage material or if it will just be fling in his life.
Capricorn understands the balance between work and play. As a result, he appreciates those who can also do both. A career driven woman who can throw that on the back burner for a night of love is always a great match. He is slow to open up and trust women but when he does, he does so fully. Those who have earned a Capricorn male's trust need feel special because their Capricorn male certainly thinks they are.
Capricorn does give thought to presentation and image. Since he does not feel entirely comfortable in large social situations, the Capricorn male leans to his partner to set the status quo of the night and will feel foolish if his partner is presenting the wrong image.
The Match Between a Leo Woman and a Capricorn Man
On the surface, the match between a Leo woman and a Capricorn man is quite poor. While Leo is outgoing and social, Capricorn is reserved and shy. While Leo loves compliments and to be pampered, Capricorn places less emphasis on those particular traits. While they both may be passionate, they are often passionate about different things and Leo's benevolence isn't in Capricorn's nature.
However, there are also several overlaps to the match. Leo is romantic and flirtatious, something that can amuse Capricorn's unique humor. They both have a drive to present a certain type of image outwardly. The two are both strong and can form a powerful union when they balance each other out. They may also admire the other's sense of individuality.
Sparks can fly when the two are on the same page, but voices may rise if a Capricorn man finds a Leo woman's image to be a facade. Capricorn likes things to feel real and may feel tricked if Leo is not who he thinks. As a result, it may take longer than usual for Capricorn to trust his female Leo. During that time period, the Leo woman may find the attentions of the other men banging down her door more interesting. While Leo finds love in compliments, Capricorn finds love in comfort.
While it may be a difficult match to maintain, the match between a Leo woman and a Capricorn man is possible if both partners are willing to be real and work at it.
