When Leo and Sagittarius Fall in Love

Fire meets fire in this crazy match. Leo and Sagittarius will be a force to be reckoned with. Leo brings all the energy, magnetism, and dramatics into the relationship. Sagittarius brings in a wild energy that makes everything spontaneous. Together they will be share a spark over humor, good times, and craziness.

Unlike an Aries and Leo match that's a battle of egos, Leo and Sagittarius is more about going out into the world and experiencing it. Sagittarius is less concerned with its ego; it has a weaker flame. The fire sign is born in late fall, making it the coldest fire sign.

Sagittarius types are tricksters, thinkers, and thespians. Leo as a fire sign born in the middle of summer has an impressive and insane ego that both draws people to his inner circle and away from it. This relationship will have the king-like royal leader of Leo with the scholarly-like insanity of the Sagittarius centaur.

The Leo is always ready to pounce, and the Sagittarius is always ready to shoot the arrow. The lion flirts up front and personal. He is confrontational. Sagittarius, on the other hand, likes to flirt from a distance. They may start messaging you randomly, or giving you stares from across the room.

A Relationship with Flattery, Compliments, and Wit

Leo Wants Compliments, Sagittarius Gives Compliments

Leo wants to be adored beyond all reason. Meanwhile, Sagittarius wants to charm the pants off anything and everything. Sagittarius is practically an air sign with its wordiness.

Leo thrives off compliments, and storms into a rage off insults. Sagittarius is clever and whimsical, thinking on the fly, and knows exactly what to say to charm people.

Leo Wants a Strong Commitment, Sagittarius Is Non-Committal

Sagittarius may confuse Leo. The centaur is known for running into romances without any inclination to commit to them. Sagittarius wants to be free and generally approaches love casually and without bounds. Sagittarius tactics don't lead to a commitment all that quickly. Sagittarius is actually known as one of the more single or bachelor signs of the zodiac.

Leo, on the other hand, is looking over the planet for a companion to the rule the world with them. They need their king or queen to run a fiefdom.

Leo is a warrior, a king, and a champion of the people. They like to be adored by one special person who belongs to them and who they belong to. The Leo wants someone wants to be nourished by delicious meals, pampered, brought gifts. He wants to be on display. He wants to feel essential to your life.

If Sagittarius tries to act casual while Leo tries to act serious this could spell disaster. Leo will get frustrated and annoyed as to why the Sagittarius is holding back, and the Sagittarius will find the Leo is too demanding and overbearing. The Leo may try some of Sagittarius' games and do a few things here and there to lure, attract, trap, and ensnare the Sagittarius. Leo too knows how to use flattery.

Leo Has a Sizable Ego

Leo has the tenacity to think it is the greatest lover in the universe, and he will do whatever it takes to have you begging for more of his love. Leo does not want to be toyed with. He will not stick around if someone doesn't commit because their ego is too big, they're too impatient with lukewarm lovers, and they can't sit still. They need passion. They need commitment. They need structure.

Learning How to Impress Leo

If Sagittarius wants to woe a Leo, all she needs to do is flatter him consistently. You must give compliments and give them hugs and kisses. The more sugar the better. They'll tell you when it's cloying.

A Leo doesn't care as much about looks as some may think. Honestly, they get kind of tired of pretty people, and capturing someone who is pretty isn't really that hard for a Leo. They don't like vapid pretty people. Leo will lose his mind for someone who has a strong sense of character, people who are original and quirky, and those with wit.

Leo wants to be with someone who charges into life, who has ambition, and who is willing to yell at the clouds. Leo finds this person highly amusing and attractive. Beauty isn't everything to them, that would be a trait of a Taurus.

Leo and Sagittarius are the kind of couple that exercises and does things together.

Sagittarius finds more commitment in an adventure then a day-to-day ho-hum romance. Sagittarius likes the festive, the shiny, the musical theater of it all. This sign is born during the holiday season, so they expect a certain grandeur to life from the big turkey feast, Christmas lights, Hanukkah menorahs, bright colors, tacky sweaters, kisses under the mistletoe, strange stories to warm the heart, and hot cocoa to warm the stomach.

Sagittarius needs sparkle and dazzle. Leo can offer wonder and awe. The best way to do it: take Sagittarius on a wild journey they'll always remember.

Fire dominates the house of will. Fire signs don't want to sit and think and plot. They want to go. The want to be with people, they want to chase after demons, they want to slay evil, they want to party like its 1999, and they want to celebrate the strange. A fire sign is not a good match for someone who just wants to sit all day and stare at the wall or a computer or TV. A fire sign needs the opportunity to run out and embrace spontaneity.

Relationships where two people share the same element tend to last for the long haul. Two fire signs together can be explosive, but there is also mutual understanding and similar outlooks on life. It's easier to build a life together when you're headed in the same direction.

Leo and Sagittarius fall in love because they enjoy similar things and because they make each other laugh. They're a jovial couple, who can also get pretty passionate and strange.

Tips and Tricks for this Relationship

1. Spend more time having fun than getting mad or in a funk. It should feel natural to make each other laugh, get silly, or do something weird.

2. Sagittarius needs to sometimes calm down and take things more seriously and not get so lost in their thought stream that when they speak it unfortunately sounds like incessant babbling. Leo loves you, but their attention span isn't eternal.

3. Leo needs to let the Sagittarius lead too.

4. A Sagittarius will do well to pursue introverted activities alongside the relationship: go paint, play music, write, and make some pottery. Sagittarius would do well to teach Leo how to build their own inner space and build from there and not always thrive on a crowd.

5. Make sure to take care of things around the house and finances. With so much focus on will-power and creativity some necessary boring things in life will go to the wayside. Learn to find a love for cleaning, for accounting, for taxes, and for mowing the lawn. Don't let everything run wild. Be brave to take care of things.

6. Be cognizant of people around you, don't get so lost in your own little world that you're oblivious to how you come off to other people outside your circle.

7. Your fights are going to come down to neither of you are great managers. You're both leaders who go out into the world and inspire change, but you don't like to stick around to manage things you create, you keep running to inspire more. It will leave you bankrupt if you don't add proper managing skills into your life. (You need people who can help you make long term decisions and take care of some of the day-to-day tasks for you.)

8. Keep the positive sun energy going. Humor and good feels is your glue. Don't get into nagging.

9. Take note of what's happening. Chart the progress of your relationship. No one will do it for you.

10. Get out of your city every once and awhile and travel. This will help open up your minds and get you talking.

Remember the Lessons of Fire

Fire is a powerful element. Fire has helped humans survive, and it has also led to our destruction.

Fire needs balance to create warmth and light. We need the light to lead us in the direction we chose. We need the warmth to survive. Don't let your fire build so big that you feel angry and out of control. Don't let your fire dwindle down until you feel invisible and insecure.

Decision-making takes balance, experience, and research. A Sagittarius as a later sign of the zodiac is gifted with an extra amount of wisdom. This sign has a pertinacity for research to help carry our species into future generations.

Leo has the bonkers power to push and inspire people and bring social justice. The sign can unite people and bring peace.

Leo's energy can also be destructive. The fire sign's energy can push ambitious people into bad things, like industries that cause carbon crushing cycles. . . and now the planet is ablaze.

Together Leo and Sagittarius can work to create a happy medium that cools the Leo into something more refined and mature, and raises Sagittarius to burn a little more to take on the world with creativity and freshness.
