Housekeeping is not a field in which a female lion would like to shine.
Mops and dusty rags do not combine with tiaras and the brilliance of coronation. Do not forget that in Leo lies the very essence of regality. Endless washing and cooking also do not harmonize with the astrological rule that all Lions and Lionesses are born free. Feeling instinctively, most Lionesses (more than two-thirds) choose a career for themselves. And since we are talking about statistics, I will add that in the review of the membership of female feminist groups, the number of Lionesses is at the top of the list (with Aries slightly behind). All this is beautiful, and I have nothing against the girls of the sign of Leo, who decided to compete with all these predators of the commercial jungle. Why should I throw a stone at them when I make a career and actively resent legalized domestic slavery? Who wants to stand and watch all day how does alfalfa grow in cans on a kitchen window? After all, what obstacle, what challenge can a smart Leo girl find here?
No, I do not mind or criticize, I only allow myself a friendly astrological warning. A career is a great choice, unless the Leo girl falls in love with a man of the same sign. Then some difficulties may arise.
She recognizes him immediately, without even having a clue about his birthday, by a delightful mane, well-groomed and shiny. He will be for her a brave and gentle defender, convinced of his exceptionalism, even if everyone around thinks differently. They will soon recognize this anyway. They will be better off. And to her too. He has a dazzling smile and dazzling white teeth, but a relaxed pose hides his wild temper and strong will. He is truly generous, warm, but terribly proud and extremely sensitive to resentment.
Now back to her career. If, when they meet for the first time, it turns out that she earns more than him, he will laugh at this, completely confident that his income will soon not only equal her, but will exceed him. A lion deeply and romantically in love with a beautiful, graceful, sensual and seductive Lioness will not allow such trifles as money to interfere with the conquest and subjugation of his chosen one. No way. A barely perceptible smell and vague smoke rings from the incense of love will plunge any real Leo man into a trance. And there are no real men the sign of Leo. But, unfortunately, this trifle – money – can become something more in their relationship when the first exciting, crazy flame of passion turns into cozy coals of calm intimate tenderness (sometimes, of course, again ignited, but burning with a more even fire of devotion,
Money will remain for them a “trifle” if he actually earns more than her and has made a dizzying career. But if this is not so, money will very quickly turn into an important problem, and with the slightest encouragement from any of them, into a huge, then into a gigantic problem, until it finally turns into a monster that has stood between them and threatening to destroy their love.
I will tell you frankly: if she has more money (or anything else) than he needs, a heroic sacrifice is required to save the relationship. Guess from whom? That’s right. From her. Listen, you’re interested in astrology, right? A female lion can control the men of all other solar signs, but in this pair the lion dominates the lioness. This happens in nature, and fighting it is useless. And do not go into deception. Any dishonesty, no matter how laudable the intentions, can never save the lion’s relationship. She will only kill love and respect for each other.
The heroic sacrifice that I spoke of is that the Lioness should, having placed their happiness above all else, begin to ask him for help in her work or career, and then convince him that she could never achieve such success without his leadership ( which will be the undoubted truth), so that the money that she earns should be divided equally between them, and all that sort of thing – right up to the decision to quit work if it seriously hinders their relationship. If she really loves him (and she will love him, especially if he or she has the Moon in the sign of Fire or Air), then she will prefer to hold on to his large, warm and reliable hand, strolling in the park, rather than longing alone, wondering, where now her Leo, whom she loves so much, licks her wounds or, rather, what kind of sympathetic siren pours balm on them.
If they quarreled (and both rage with resentment), then they are striving with all their might to prove to the offender that they started a new romance. But in nine out of ten cases, both only threaten infidelity in order to teach a lesson to each other. These are the Lions. It is difficult for them to find another King (or Queen), they do not want to deal with slaves, but are too proud to confess to their beloved in their loneliness.
Not all, but many of these quarrels between these men and women arise from blows to his male ego, often because of jealousy, instigated by rivalry in the career and (or) making money, achievements and the like. Yet the main reason is his pride. Leo must win. There is no other way. Otherwise, the Leo man is offended by the whole world, falls into pathetic despondency, begins to grumble, and what woman can be happy with a gloomy grumble? Certainly not a Lioness. Lions were born free, and Leo, who found himself in a cage of grief, because he lost control of his beloved woman and therefore lost his pride and self-confidence – a truly miserable sight.
They can achieve complete harmony in several cases: if they work together and have common interests, if he is completely satisfied with his own profession, if she sincerely agrees to stay at home and create comfort in him, so that he would be pleased to return there. There are probably other options, but you really want to find them.
If two Leos manage to come to an agreement, their nights will be full of tender, warm, all-consuming love. They know how to combine affection and sex, they know how to give and receive sexual satisfaction without sacrificing the magic of romance. Physical union, the ultimate goal of a true unity of love, for Leo and Lioness can become a deep pleasure and a constant renewal of mutual dedication to each other. He will approach sex with nobility and passion at the same time, but she will find the moment when her instinctive wisdom tells you exactly the role that you need to play, allowing your man to defeat himself, willingly obeying him.
However, if they have not abandoned the thought of competition, ecstasy can look a lot like agony. A lion, whom he believes is not properly respected and whose pride is hurt, can even become impotent for a while. Male impotence begins as a disease of emotions, but it can turn into a serious physical illness, coloring the whole world with dull gray despair. Then he will put on a mask of icy sarcasm and cold indifference to hide his humiliation, breaking the heart of his lady. Likewise, a Lioness, who is not sufficiently revered and admired a little, whose pride is wounded, can become frigid for some time. And female frigidity begins as a disease of emotions, but it can turn into a serious physical illness, and then the Lioness will also wear a mask, but another: arrogant stubbornness, boredom or acute mockery to hide his humiliation (breaking his heart now). Well, isn’t that a mockery of people born under the sign that governs the heart itself? The only way out of such selfish grief is the realization that false pride, like any other, kills love, enslaving the truth that would make love free that it leaves, not hopes for a revival of feelings, but only the weightless ashes of old dreams. Worth it pride? Of course not. Then why are these two so desperately clinging to her? Let them answer for themselves. Alone … Honestly looking into each other’s eyes and reading the truth in them. I admit that complete frankness can be humiliating, especially for Leo, but when you realize that you will have a long life alone, the right choice will be obvious. Sometimes a pretty simple truth
A fierce quarrel between the usually loving and affectionate Leo and Lioness can erupt from anything: from a lack of compliments, from harsh words of accusation of real or made-up infidelity, which causes the most painful torment of jealousy and mistrust, from this eternal conflict between her career and his need for superiority . Perhaps he will teach her a couple of lessons as chief. And if Leo once teaches a woman a lesson, she will not forget him. Remember the “Taming of the Shrew.” But “all is well that ends well,” both on the stage and outside of it.
