A Leo woman asks:
Is it possible to have a relationship with someone with a heavy Aquarian emphasis in his chart or is it a lost cause? I have no planets in Aquarius at all but I seem to be attracted to them for reasons that I can’t fathom. Maybe it’s that Jupiter/Uranus conjunction in Libra? I don’t know. Is it bc I’m a Leo Sun? I don’t know but either way, that’s my question.
Zodiac opposites attract for a good reason. Each axis contains two complementary signs that really can’t function without the other.
|Aries – Libra||Me – You|
|Taurus – Scorpio||My Money – Our Money|
|Gemini – Sagittarius||Facts – Theories|
|Cancer – Capricorn||Home – Work|
|Leo – Aquarius||Performer – Audience (or Individual – Group)|
|Virgo – Pisces||Organized Ritual – Mystical Letting Go|
Leo needs a detached viewer to objectively critique her performance. Who else but Aquarius can do that? (I said critique, not criticize, Virgo!)
Your attraction is due to your Leo Sun, not your Uranus-Jupiter conjunction in Libra. This conjunction can last nearly a year — it’s not specific to Leos — and concerns your need to experience expansion, meaning, revolution and independence in relationships.
In your chart, Saturn — the ruler of your 7th House of Partnership (with Capricorn on the cusp) — is in your 11th House of Friends and Groups. The 11th House has a natural affinity with Aquarius. This area of your life is bound with your partnership needs; for example, you might find a future husband in a humanitarian group with which you are involved. And who is more likely to spend time in these endeavors than Aquarians? Hence, this is another factor in your chart that may explain your attraction to the sign of the Water Bearer.
Is someone with a heavy Aquarian emphasis a lost cause? Not necessarily — you just need to give him lots of independence and not expect much in the way of emotional availability.
