Compatibility of Star Signs Leo & Sagittarius

by Robyn Lynne Schechter

Astrology may play a role in determining how a relationship between two people, born under two different signs, will fare by evaluating the interplay between the dominant traits of those signs. The outlook for a Leo and Sagittarius is positive, as, to a great extent, the two thrive on shared traits.


Leos are born between July 23 and August 22. Known for being natural-born leaders, Leos possess dynamic personalities, are adventurous, ambitious and curious and often enjoy being in the spotlight. Primarily extroverted, Leos are generous with loved ones and value loyalty in personal relationships. The traits that allow Leos to be successful in their endeavors come at a cost, as Leos can be self-absorbed, stubborn, controlling, arrogant and condescending.


Born between November 23 and December 21, Sagittarians are big-picture thinkers with optimistic attitudes. Like Leos, Sagittarians have an appetite for adventure, especially travelling, and are open to news ways of thinking and being. Sagittarians value their freedom and independence. These traits can present problems, as Sagittarians can be hopeless idealists, inconsiderate of the needs of others and afflicted by the need always to be entertained.

Love Compatability

A relationship between a Leo and a Sagittarius is certain to be passionate and exciting. They find common ground in their enjoyment of social activities and adventure seeking and their go-getter attitudes. In many ways, Leo and Sagittarius are an ideal love match because they share personality traits that not only bring them together in activity, but that they admire seeing in another person. The Sagittarius' need to be a free spirit can conflict with Leo's controlling demeanor, resulting in Leo feeling insecure in the relationship while Sagittarius attempts to maintain independence. As long as Leo and Sagittarius communicate, fueled by Sagittarius' open-minded nature and Leo's loyalty, these negative traits can be minimized.

Creative Compatibility

In addition to being able to have lots of fun with one another and enjoying overall compatibility, the Leo-Sagittarius relationship can yield successful creative projects. One example of a working, creative Leo-Sagittarius relationship is Mick Jagger (Leo) and Keith Richards (Sagittarius) of the Rolling Stones. The duo has benefited from the interplay of Jagger's natural charisma and Richards' understanding of the big picture, with each playing a role in making the Rolling Stones one of the most important and successful bands in the history of rock and roll.
