|Hahahaha, my expectations? This dynamic between the two signs aren't often discussed here (probably a reason :p) so as a change of pace I thought I'd ask opinions. This is not to aid some persoanl vestment |
Thanks for the thoughts though, I've not heard of many Cap/Leo pairings or friends. Small dose kinda thing maybe?
|The couple of Leos I've known came across as rather emotionally needy. This, in and of itself, I think would make this pairing a difficult one (not withstanding other placements, of course). I do have a Leo friend who leans on me for a lot for emotional support when he has issues with women (especially), work and life in general. But, I'm not usually very gentle - I think he calls me because he knows I'll be forthright with him. Or maybe he just likes the abuse, if he's at fault I won't hesitate to verbally smack him upside the head (or physically if I'm meeting him out).|
|^^^ that's a complete misinterpretation of what I said/described!|
|my boyfriend has a Leo moon and I have a Capricorn moon and most of the time we work well together....although our suns are very compatible [I'm Aquarius, he's Libra], we've been together about three and a half years...moved in together a year ago and the Leo/Cap differences have definitely reared their ugly head, especially in the finances, and it does get VERY ugly when it does get ugly, and my thoughts become really dark at those times when it comes to the future of our relationship, but he's the only guy who's gotten me to stay in a relationship for longer than three months, and we've both invested a lot into it, and most of the time he definitely does brighten my life, makes me laugh, goes out of his way to show affection - especially when we were fighting, he was trying very hard to show his love for me [and even though i was still pissed off, I did notice the energy he put into trying to smooth things over (not sure how much was Leo, how much was Libra, in the end it really doesn't matter)]....but I think with other compatible planets, it really can work, there is nobody else who can make me laugh and who can brighten up my life like he does. since we've been together, my issues with depression have been mostly kept under control, and I know most people who would've seen the 'real' me by now would've been running as fast as possible probably, hahahaha......then again, I don't know who would've stuck around after having to hear his immature whining.....and with the finances, when it got down to it and I told him straight up that he could not live with me anymore if he didn't get a job, he found a job within two days of fighting. so, I know both of us are serious about making this work!|

I was surprised there weren't more of these responses
|Long time Leo lurker. I am a Leo female who dated a Cap male for 7 years. Broke up with him midway had 1.5 year break, got back together and got engaged, but I broke off the engagement. We met freshman year of college, were friends but only started dating after we both graduated. The problem with that relationship is that we were both un-evolved. Additionally, he is very much a mama's boy. When we started planning our life together he had to inform his mother of everything, would throw me under the bus, and she had a say in everything. I began to feel as if we were not 'building' anything... not forging our own path, so I broke it off. We were both 30 and I felt very uncomfortable with having to discuss everything with his mother.|
I am now dating another Cap, lol. Who I also met freshman year in college. Back then we had developed an emotional bond, and there def. were feelings but he never asked me to be his gf, so I moved on with someone else. Stayed in touch, even hung out after we both graduated. Well he contacted me out of the blue last year and went IN on me, lol Telling me that I dumped him, and he was walking around with feelings for me but I dumped him and he was so hurt. This was news to me, and I told him so. I told him that he never spoke about his feelings, and never asked me to be his girl, so how was I supposed to know? He said I should have just 'known' that is the way we were heading, lololol.
I saw him for the first time earlier this year, and the fist thing he said was that I was the love of his life, lol. We've since then started a relationship, and he is VERY evolved, as am I. It works, lol. Don't kid yourself Leo ladies, Cap males are slow. But there is a difference between slowness and INERTIA. I let him take the lead, we are going at his pace, but I am loving it. We are slowly peeling back the layers and it is the sweetest thing. Thus far we have had two major arguments, the first was my fault... he could have walked away but didn't. The second was his fault I could have walked away, but didn't.
His basic nature is very similar to my ex, but he is 100 times more evolved. Thus I am able to leverage what I learned from my ex, and it is lovely.
Leo ladies, I know we love attention, but let them come to you. If you haven't heard from him in a few days, don't ask 'why haven't you called, where were you' the first time he does. My Cap rarely goes a day without contacting me, the most is a day and a h
|** A day and a half**.|
Cap males are not very touchy feely at first, and may take a very long time to get there (my ex), but trust it will come. He won't tell you he loves you everyday, he just expects you to know. Know that if he is putting his time and effort, he cares.
If he says he's busy, he is. It's very easy to figure out a pattern with men... just be patient. My Cap hasn't let me down thus far. I will trust him until he gives me a reason not to.
He says he loves that I am a hard worker, is always sunny and bright, always happy, and always can put him in a good mood.
I can write a book about Leo Cap relations, so I won't bore you, PM me if needed. All I can say, is that I glad my Cap and I re-kindled things when I am in my 30's, have had chance to evolve as a person, and learn from my ex Cap.
|One last thing. Caps HATE games, furthermore, they see right through them. If I'm available I text back, pick up the phone, etc. There's a difference between being available and being needy. 99% of the time I let him initiate contact and even if I have been DYING to talk to him I never project that on him. Bottom line, have your own life, your own activities. Just know that if they are into you they will be slow but steady.|
We're both very busy so I hardly every find myself sitting around waiting for that phone call or text. Still, I have learned that with ANY man, you should never guilt trip him, make him feel that you've been sitting by the phone, or that you are at all co-dependent.
Caps in particular love their space and expect that if they are giving you time and effort, they expect that you trust them, and not nag with: where were you, why didn't you call, you have another girl, you don't love me, etc.
If you're looking for a man to sweep you off your feet and go from zero to sixty in six months, a Cap is not for you.
|You two sound very happy |
What's more is you've managed to peg the isms. There is experience behind the lines, you aren't just writing in traditional format. When you two didn't walk away from each other...that's important because you see, it adds so much strength and character to the relationship. Then the storm blows out and you are left with something even better than before
I hear a lot of things I do in there Not all Caps are the same but the only note I'll add is some do need a little push, pull, etc. Never too often and you are correct. There IS a pattern. May I be so bold as to inquire your chart? I am ridiculously curious.

it's a different situation [is it okay for me to talk about me and my bf in this thread since i'm referring to our moons and not our suns? cos like....just, yknow, i know it's a different situation with our moons being Leo and Cap and not our suns, but since we started living together, I do feel like our moons are now much more part of our relationship because we dont have our own places to run off to if we need to!] but my boyfriend definitely brought out passion in me that I had always repressed......the passion that a Leo can show is definitely out of this world, it's an amazing thing to experience
