Leo and Sagittarius: Relationship Fire or Ice?


In astrology, all signs are represented by planets, and each planet is separated by thirty degrees. Although there are many ways to evaluate how signs connect and correlate, an easy tell is the location and position of each planet, also called an ‘aspect.’

A ‘trine’ is one of the major aspects of the Zodiac and refers to signs that are one hundred and degrees apart or have three planets (or signs) in between them, as is the case with you two, Leo and Sagittarius.

Leos, born between July 23rd and August 22nd, and Sagittarius’, born between November 22nd and December 21st, are part of the fiery trine–the term used to describe fire signs who share this aspect. (The third sign that is connected to this trine is Aries).

Although trines often indicate harmony between two signs, as is often the case when it comes to your friendship, they’re also symbolic of luck. This will come in handy when we’re talking about romantic love between you two, Leo and Sag.

Not only will you feel lucky to be with this person–but you’ll both feel lucky by how much you’re able to get away with in your arguments and yet still make it work. So, let’s uncover what makes you two tick.

Leo Zodiac Symbol


Your symbol, Leo, is the lion, an appropriate representation since the anime Leo is Latin for lion.

You’re ruled by the sun, the brightest star in the solar system, which also makes sense for you, Leo, since you pretty much consider yourself the star of the Zodiac.

You flourish in front of a crowd, and love being the center of attention. Like the summer months you’re born in (July and August) you radiate warmth, Leo, and light a flame wherever you go.

You’re ambitious, loyal, and fierce, and because you’re the fifth sign in the Zodiac, you rule the fifth house of romance and self-expression, an adept description of your flirtatious nature, Leo.

Everyone knows that wherever you go, they’ll always be entertained.

Sagittarius Zodiac Symbol


A good way to look at you, Sagittarius, is to consider the time you were born. Between the end of November and the end of December is often a magical time.

It may start to snow depending on where you live, and you’ll be making plans with your family for the upcoming holidays.

Work is pushed to the back burner, and connections to the people you love is prioritized. There’s a zest for life in the air, an upbeat, uplifted energy that can be represented by your personality, Sag.

You’re a dreamer, a wanderlust, and if you happen to be creative and a Swifty, take pleasure in knowing that Taylor is Sagittarius. Even if you’re not a fan of hers–put on Shake It Off and tell me you don’t want to dance to that song–you’re probably a naturally creative person.

As a mutable sign you are adaptable, but because of your fire, you’re not a follower. If anything, while other people are sticking to the path, some in the lead, some in the back, you’re the one wandering off into the bushes, climbing trees, and making friends with wildlife.

Life is magical, and don’t you know it.

Leo and Sagittarius in Friendship

In the words of Tom Petty, ‘life is a highway’ when you two cross paths. And when you two are together, you’ll carve whatever path you see fit. You’re both fire signs, meaning you’re not just determined to go against the grain, but you’ll double down when someone suggests you go left, and you actually would prefer to go right.

Leo, as a fixed sign, you’re a little more set in your ways than mutable and adaptable Sag, but this will turn out to be a positive for you two. Leo will offer Sagittarius the structure they normally lack, and Sagittarius will encourage Leo to go with the flow.

Individually, you each make a statement wherever you go, but when you venture out together, you’ll make an imprint other people won’t be able to forget and will, in fact, be left wondering: how do I become friends with those two?

Friend Date - Calendar

Friend Date: Mani/Pedi or Streaking on the Beach at Midnight?

There’s a passion in your friendship and a spark of energy that will make everything you do together an adventure, filled with engaging conversations and interesting detours, ensuring there will never be a dull moment when you get together.

You may find your mutual fire a bit too hot for some of your friends, and because you two are natural extroverts, your energy, especially when combined, can overwhelm some and lift others up.

Leo, although you crave being around other people and being the center of attention, sometimes you can even get exhausted from your own energy.

This is where Sagittarius will balance you out, their adaptable nature encouraging you to step outside your comfort zone and show you that it’s okay to be alone and spend some time with yourself.

It’s a valuable lesson, one you’ll appreciate. Sag, Leo will bring out your extroverted tendencies but will also teach you that some structure is a good thing and that being reckless just for the thrill of the moment isn’t always the best idea.

Friend-Fection Icon

Friend-Fection: Keep It on the Dl or Text ‘Love Ya Biatch?’

Sagittarius, your symbol is the Archer, which indicates your nature to aim for what you want and shoot for it no matter what’s in your way. Even if you miss your target, you’ll be happy you gave it a shot either way.

For this reason, you often learn best by trial and error, something that’s been an interesting challenge for you when it comes to your honesty in your friendships.

You don’t hide how you feel, and you won’t hesitate to cut straight through the BS and call someone out. Some Zodiac signs won’t like you for this, but not Leo. If you say something positive about them, Leo will light up, wanting to hear more.

But if what you have to say is negative, Leo will take it to heart, and instead of being angry, they’ll see it as a challenge to get you to like them, and although it’s partially because Leo enjoys validation, it’s also because they see something special in you Sag, a whimsical go with the flow nature they want to absorb.

Your conversations will be honest, refreshing and will create a healthy foundation that will only improve your friendship in the long run.

Dating Advice Icon

Dating Advice: Send His Name or Send His Social?

If dating is a stage, then Leo, you don’t just stand in the spotlight; you get a standing ovation, a bouquet of roses, and all the Tony awards one could imagine. You’re naturally enigmatic and first dates are often smitten by you and your confidence.

As a result, you usually have a fair share of people to pick from, and although you’ll open up to your friends about going on dates, you only truly get into details about the ones you really start to like.

And when you get to that point, you’re in trouble. Your hardened exterior begins to break, and your insecurities will come out; this is when you truly need to confide in your friends.

And Sagittarius will be the first you will tell, not just because they probably already know every aspect of your life, but because they’re not as into dating as you are and prefer to live vicariously through you, and because of that, their advice will be exactly what you, Leo, need to here.

Sagittarius, you’ll tell Leo about your dates, but not because you’re interested in a relationship but because you enjoy the random things you experience when you meet new people.

Like Leo, only when you have feelings do you open up about who you’re with. But unlike Leo, you won’t fall as quickly. It’s not that you have a guard up. It’s more that you like the freedom you have in your life, and it would take a special someone to open that door.

And that’s when you start to wonder if that person might very well be Leo.

Leo and Sagittarius in Love

It’s very likely that you two started as friends, especially if you have even a mild attraction to one another. And if that’s the case, it’s probably likely that you skipped a few steps and went straight to the bedroom before going on your first date.

That same energy and passion that makes your friendship so effortless will light a romantic relationship between the two of you on fire.

Just be careful, friends; you’re both fire signs, after all. When things get heated, you don’t always know how to turn off the gas, and if you’re not careful, you could make things explode.

From an outside perspective, you two might look a little crazy. Public fights or at least snappy comments aren’t unlikely around you two. You hate to love as much as you love to hate, but deep down, there is an undeniable connection that will always drive you back together.

First Date Icon

The First Date: Roses or KFC?

Although you, Leo, are used to making the first move when you’re newly dating someone, you’ll be surprised to find that with Sagittarius, you’re more than happy to step outside your comfort zone.

You crave attention, Leo, but attention from strangers pales compared to the funneled love from someone you care about, and you are pretty picky when it comes to settling down.

Your first date will definitely be fueled by conversation, and you two will have endless things to talk about.

Sagittarius will bring up the topics, and Leo will fuel them with an energy that keeps you two engaged throughout the night.

You’ll both end up wanting to do something out of the house, in nature, and being active. Life is interesting, and together, you’ll search for experiences to make it just that.

Love Language Icon

Love Language Do’s and Don’ts: A Dealbreaker?

Growth is the definition of your relationship, not just in the experiences you share in the world as partners but in the bond you define with one another.

Quality time is of utmost importance to both of you, as you, Sagittarius, want to see the world with your partner by your side, and you, Leo, crave the company and focus of the one you love.

While Leo, you will tend to lean toward gift-giving more than Sagittarius, your Sag partner will be more than happy to surprise you with roses and a home-cooked meal.

You can both struggle with words of affirmation, as Sagittarius’ bluntness can often pop Leo’s ego bubble, and Leo’s selfish tendencies will mean they will talk more about what they need instead of considering their partner’s needs.

But if you balance out your mutual love of both quality time and physical touch while learning how to talk about the things you need and listen to the other person, then you two will be just fine.

Sexy Time Icon

Sexy Time: Slow and Steady or Chompin’ at the Bit?

This won’t be a problem for you two. Spiciness will be the name of the game, and it’s likely you two are thriving in a friend-with-benefits relationship before you end up actually taking the jump and committing.

While intimacy is important for Leo, they’ll enjoy this time more if they feel genuinely connected and bonded to the person they’re sharing themselves with.

If they’ve reached that place with Sagittarius, then nothing will stop the two of you from thriving in this department. And Sagittarius, your excitement for new and interesting experiences will keep this connection alive and electric.

The Verdict?

As friends, you two will do more than flourish, you’ll light a fire that will make the world glow wherever you go.

This same passion will make it likely that a sexual relationship is inevitable if you share any attraction, but eventually, Leo, seeking connection, will need a commitment out of spontaneous Sagittarius. As long as Sag can continue experiencing the freedom they crave, your relationship will thrive just as strongly as your friendship.
