Anyone who knows a Leo knows that they’re full of passion and fire…
…And that they can have bags of confidence and big hearts.
With the right match, they feel like they can take on the world yet the wrong match will result in some pretty fiery collisions.
So, which sign is the best sign for a Leo? Here’s an epic guide to understanding Leo’s ideal sign.
Why Leo and Sagittarius are a match made in heaven
Let’s get straight to it.
Leo, ruler of the sun, loves a fiery counterpart.
These people, born between July 23 and August 22, need to be with someone who matches their energy.
Enter Sagittarius, the ninth astrological sign for people born between November 21 and December 21.
Sagittarius, is another fire sign that’s known for bringing the heat.
Hands down, Sagittarius and Leo are the best match going… And no one else comes close!
These two are an astrologers’ dream match.
“The spectacle that a Leo and Sagittarius couple can put up in their own, as well as other’s lives, can be likened to fireworks.”
Now, these fireworks aren’t just your bog-standard display; they’re dramatic and extravagant.
These are fireworks that don’t have an end date!
But why is it that these two have such chemistry and intensity?
Well, both signs meet each other where they want to be met and they’re like mirrors to one another.
In other words, they don’t have to adapt who they are or dull themselves down to work for the other person and they’re super similar!
First things first, they have high levels of enthusiasm for life and they’re high-energy types.
These two both want to travel and see the world, and to experience all of the riches that life has to offer.
I can tell you from experience that these two signs are an ideal match.
You see, I’m a Leo while my boyfriend is a Sagittarius.
Truth is, I’ve never had a relationship like this.
It’s not only our attraction to each other that’s on fire, but our conversations are so stimulating and fulfilling.
He ticks all of the boxes.
Although we have different interests and perspectives, we love to hear each other out and to share our opinions.
Things can get a little heated when we don’t see eye-to-eye, but we ultimately love to chat through how we see things.
It’s as though we always have something to teach one another.
So, astrologically speaking, why is it that these two are such a good match?
“Leo is one of the most energetic signs in the zodiac with fire as its element which further gives them the passion and zeal that they carry over to their relationships. Sagittarius, on the other hand, is the epitome of a free spirit whose element is also fire.”
In my experience, these energies manifest as wanting to book spontaneous, impromptu trips to places and wanting to learn about the world.
I can tell you that it’s amazing being with someone who is just as adventurous and open-minded as me…
…I never thought I’d find it, but I was just dating the wrong signs!
Do things ever go wrong with Sagittarius and Leo?
Fire and fire equals… A whole lot of heat.
Now, it’s really not a bad thing in many areas but when it comes to arguing things can get pretty… heated.
“With both signs’ elements being fire, they might experience the occasional impatience and intolerance of each other’s grandeur.”
In my experience, I know this to be true.
In the course of our year-long relationship, there have been many moments when we’ve been impatient and intolerant of one another.
You see, my boyfriend and I can both end up seeing red pretty quickly and shouting until we’ve exhausted ourselves because we’ve been passionate about our opinions.
It’s part of who we are!
In the early days of our relationship, I thought we weren’t compatible because of how we argued.
We would shout and shout until someone gave in.
I thought we were just a batch match and that this shouldn’t be how a relationship is.
The fire was just too… hot!
However, I’ve come to learn that the fire isn’t going anywhere so it comes down to communicating effectively.
Truth is, I don’t want the fire to go anywhere.
Instead, we’ve come to realize that communication is the most important component to a successful relationship.
Regardless of your signs and your compatibility on paper, if two people can’t learn to communicate effectively with one another then it’s not going to work out.
Learning to communicate effectively takes time and a commitment.
For one, we spent many evenings sitting down and sharing our perspectives, and explaining how we see things.
We also stopped assuming things, such as how the other person thinks or what they need.
I was particularly guilty of this!
We even took the time to write down how it is we see things so we could get super clear.
Now, there’s no right or wrong way when it comes to learning to communicate effectively with your partner.
The most important thing is to make the commitment to one another that you will take the time to learn how to better understand each other.
How similar are Sagittarius and Leo?
I have so many people tell me that my boyfriend and I are practically the same person.
Now, as I’ve explained: we have totally different interests and hobbies…
…But they’re about who we are at our core and what our energies are like.
You see, we both have so much passion for the world around us and we’re often the ones who lead conversations in a group of people.
We like to be engaged with others; we thrive from talking and doing…
In other words, we both constantly put ourselves out there and are called ‘extroverts’ by many people.
“Leo and Sagittarius love to be in each other’s company because there are not too many people who can bear their high energies all the time. They are also outgoing and charismatic which further allows them to lift the mood in almost any environment.”
As a Leo with a Sagittarius, I can tell you that it’s so nice to feel like I’m not ‘too much’ for someone.
Truth is, we should all be cherished for the intensity that we are…
…We shouldn’t have to feel as though we need to adapt ourselves to suit someone else.
Simply put, we should be able to show up exactly as we are without having to dim our light.
Now, if you’re with the right sign, it’s far more likely that you’ll feel as though you don’t have to change who you are.
What’s more, my boyfriend brings out the best in me…
…This should be the goal of a relationship!
I’ve found that I’ve been expressing my fun and silly side in ways it’s never been explored before.
Since being with him, I’ve found myself dancing, singing and being more playful than I ever have been.
Here’s the things:
We allow each other to be our truest selves and it’s liberating!
What are Leo and Sagittarius like in the bedroom?
Remember the fireworks I spoke about earlier…
…You can only begin to imagine what happens when these two get down to business under the sheets!
The fireworks definitely do not dim.
In fact, Leo and Sagittarius won’t believe how amazing the connection is between them physically.
These two are pure fire and passion, and their sex life is the perfect place to explore these energies.
Personally, I’ve never experienced anything close to the sex life I have with my boyfriend.
The best bit?
Our physical passion hasn’t dwindled over time… It’s just gotten better and better over time as we’ve learned what the other person loves.
If anything, the sparks between us have just continued to grow.
It goes against everything says about the honeymoon phase, but it’s so true!
What’s more, because we’re two adventurous signs, we’re always exploring new things and keeping it interesting!
“As two fire signs, one of them fixed and one of them mutable, Leo and Sagittarius share a warm love for each other. When they start dating, their sexual relationship might come as a surprise for both of them, for they will feel liberated to be exactly who they are with each other. The best thing they could do is use the trine between their Suns and build-up each other’s self-esteem, especially if they have been in demanding or disrespectful relationships prior to theirs.
“The best thing about their sex life is the passion they share. Leo is there to bring inner fire for the act of sex, and Sagittarius to fire up the expansion, the places, positions and horizons. They will both enjoy each other in a fiery way and respect each other’s bodies, minds and entire personalities. If they stumble upon one another and love is born, their sex life could represent a perfect connection for both of them.”
