Leo and Sagittarius are the type of zodiac signs that will meet in the middle of a dance floor, challenge each other to a dance-off, and wake up in bed together the next morning. They’re two of the most friendly, fun-loving, and outgoing signs in the zodiac. Together, they make a couple that everyone loves being around. Despite them being happy and optimistic, there’s a lot of depth to this pair as well. Leo and Sagittarius’ compatibility shows why this fiery duo is a match made in heaven.

“It's always a bright spot as an astrologer to do a reading for someone who’s dating an astrologically compatible person, and my eyes light up whenever I come across a Leo and a Sagittarius together,” astrologer Allison Chamberlain Jones tells Bustle. “These two signs are essentially the best possible match for one another.”

Both signs are “yang” in polarity, meaning their energies are much more active or “masculine.” They’re also fire signs, which represent vitality, creative expression, and life force. Although each fire sign has their own set of distinctive traits, Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius tend to be warm, optimistic, outgoing, active, confident, and charismatic. When two signs of the same element first meet, they tend to get along really well from the start and it’s easy for them to understand each other.

In the case of Leo and Sagittarius, this is a relationship that’s inspirational, supportive, and exciting. As astrologer Rachel Lang tells Bustle, they just know how to motivate one another. They make great friends, and even greater partners. “Two fire signs together are a force,” Lang says. “There’s a natural flow with them that makes this an easy relationship and one that’s compatible.”

Leo & Sagittarius’ Sexual Compatibility

Leo and Sagittarius’ chemistry can be felt from the start. Sagittarius will be attracted to Leo’s wild and playful energy, while Leo will love how funny and down for a good time Sagittarius is. These two can spend the entire night getting into all kinds of trouble together. As a bonus, these two share a deep connection, which makes their intimate life that much better.

In bed, the adventurous archer is up for anything, anytime, anywhere. The sun-ruled lion, on the other hand, is more of a romantic so having a good ambiance is important for them. Being with someone who puts effort into making them feel special is a huge turn-on for Leo. Sagittarius will happily indulge them from time to time.

“With the fire element at the helm, both Leo and Sagittarius are up for adventure and that's not excluded from the bedroom,” Jones says. “Both Leo and Sagittarius are willing to try new things and discover innovative ways to play.”

Leo & Sagittarius’ Emotional Compatibility

The lion and the archer make a good match emotionally, too. Both signs never get too emotional, and when they do, they get over it fairly quickly. According to Lang, Leo tends to feel things more intensely than the more happy-go-lucky Sagittarius, so they balance each other nicely. Sagittarius is always willing to listen to their partner, and can help them to see the bright side of a situation. While some of the more sensitive signs of the zodiac wouldn’t find this helpful, Leo and Sagittarius both appreciate each other’s ability to see the glass as half full.

As Jones says, “The world is literally their oyster.” These two will be constantly dreaming and visualizing their future together. They inspire each other, and support each other’s dreams, no matter how big or out there they may be.

“Together they are truly a power couple and will likely have many sets of eyes on them,” Jones says. “Their relationship will serve as inspiration for others.”

Leo & Sagittarius Dating Compatibility

Leo and Sagittarius’ compatibility for dating is high. As Stina Garbis, professional astrologer and psychic, tells Bustle, these two fire signs get along famously. They’re always laughing together, they don’t take life too seriously, and they love exploring new things.

“Sagittarius is the fun extension of Leo,” Garbis says. “Where Leo likes to play, Sagittarius plays a little harder. When they date there are fireworks, they love to have a great time and every day is an adventure.” Life just feels good when they’re together.

Of course, all couples have their share of ups and downs. For Leo and Sagittarius, one of the biggest challenges they may have to overcome is a sense of competition. Who can burn brighter? “Leo loves the spotlight but Sagittarius doesn’t want to be pushed aside either,” Garbis says. “They may crawl all over each other to get the attention from each other that they want.”

As a fixed sign, Leo tends to be more focused than mutable sign Sagittarius and may grow tired of trying to keep their partner on task. At the same time, Sagittarius may find Leo to be a bit boring and self-absorbed at times. “If they grow tired of each other, their relationship can end as fast as it begins,” Garbis says. “But most of the time these two just have so much fun that it would be hard to tear them apart.”

Leo & Sagittarius Friendship Compatibility

Leo and Sagittarius are compatible in many different ways, so naturally, these two make excellent friends. “In this dynamic, Leo inspires, supports, and encourages while Sagittarius enlightens and shines a little brighter,” Daniela Karpenos, astrologer and founder of The Cosmic Latte, tells Bustle. “Together, the two embark on a journey and life becomes an adventure.”

There’s a lot of warmth, joy, and excitement in their friendship. They’re also very supportive of each other, and will encourage the other to push further and reach new heights. According to Karpenos, they’re truly better together. “Leos can be bougie, but, with Sagittarians, they’re able to embrace their playful and adventurous side,” she says. “In turn, Leo shows Sag how to embrace their inner child.”

Sagittarius is also very philosophical, while Leos love to soul-search. Because of this, these two can have very interesting conversations about life that nobody else can get but them.

Leo & Sagittarius Communication

Two fire signs in a relationship could lead to some explosive arguments, but Leo and Sagittarius tend to do pretty well when it comes to communicating their feelings and concerns. According to Karpenos, their success can be attributed to their modalities. “Leo is a fixed fire sign, while Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign,” she says. “You can't get a fixed sign to do anything they don't want to do (or admit they're wrong), but mutable signs have a soft touch.”

They may bicker and go back and forth on an issue. But once Leo feels like they’ve said everything they need to say and Sagittarius has nothing to say back, they’ll forgive, forget, and move on.

“Sagittarius are able to read the room and fit the vibe,” Karpenos says. “They're flexible, dynamic, shape-shifting, making them perfect for stubborn, unmoving Leo. Rather than add to the friction, they can show Leos how to roll with the punches that life can throw.”

Potential Problems In A Leo & Sagittarius Relationship

When two fire signs get together, you can expect a lot of heat. Fire signs tend to have big tempers and won’t back down from a fight. Because of that, little arguments or moments of frustration can quickly become explosive and uncomfortable.

Fortunately, Leo and Sagittarius aren’t mean, don’t hold onto grudges, and tend get over things quickly. According to Jones, “These two signs won't let things fester, preferring to repair any ruptures as fast as possible. Neither wants any rain on their ordinarily optimistic parade.”

Commitment is also going to be a key issue in this relationship as Sagittarius is a free-spirited sign, and Leo needs assurance. According to Lang, Leo needs to know where the relationship is going and whether or not there’s a future. If Leo’s insecurities get the best of them, it could push Sagittarius away. But if Leo takes it day by day, Sagittarius will find themselves feeling more and more comfortable with the idea of a long-term commitment.

Are Leo & Sagittarius A Good Match?

Despite some minor challenges, Leo and Sagittarius truly are a zodiac match made in heaven. They understand each other, they get along really well, and they have a lot of fun together. As Jones says, “There's no rock they won't look under on their quest for adventure and their ambitions and love for each other literally know no bounds.”
