Ask Andie: He’s a Leo, I’m an Aries–Do We Make a Good Couple?

Every week, astrologer Andromeda Davis finds answers to your most important questions. Love, money, success-it’s all written in the stars!

Dear Andie:

I recently started dating this great guy. He’s funny and charming, and he always makes me laugh. Plus things are really great in the bedroom–no complaints there! But I’m worried that our Zodiac signs might not be compatible. For one thing, he dresses way better than I do! I’ve never dated a Leo before, so I’m not sure what to expect.

Thanks for your help! Women Are From Venus

Dear Venus:

Pairing two fire signs–especially Aries and Leo–is a tricky proposition. You’re both hot-headed and passionate, which is why I’m not surprised your sexual chemistry is so great. But when it comes to building a relationship based on trust and shared interests, you’re going to have a harder time.

Fire signs (that’s Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius) often have major ups and downs in their relationships. They have big, dramatic fights–but most of the time, it’s just a way to blow off steam. Since you’re both Fire signs, expect your conflicts to be explosive. In a way, though, it’s better to let Aries and Leo battle each other, rather than pairing you off with a more sensitive Water sign. As long as you both work on calming techniques to curb your tempers, you’ll be able to enjoy your occasional fights–and the makeup sex afterward.

Another challenge you may face is finding things to do together. Aries tends to be more outdoorsy and active, while Leos are often more interested in partying, shopping, and socializing. That’s not to say the two of you have nothing in common, but an Aries/Leo pairing will never be one of those couples that does everything together.

Finally, be aware that both of you will want to be in charge. You’ll have to actively work on compromise and patience if you’re going to enjoy a happy relationship. Remember, it’s okay if nobody is in charge!

Love and Light, Andie
