Love Match - Leo and Sagittarius

Situation Comedy

By

Upside: spirited lovers; ecstatic play in the bedroom; spontaneous; can take the heat; very expressive; honest; fiery libido. Downside: different tempos (quality); loyalty vs. loyal to life; straying; reckless with passions.

Fixed Fire and Mutable Fire

Leo and Sagittarius are hugely animated and charismatic signs. Both have instincts that life is an adventure to be celebrated. Dating involves play and possibly travel, creative collaboration or partying (and loving) to dawn.

Sagittarius draws Leo outdoors and soon both are glowing with fresh fire in the cheeks. Falling in love makes them feel even more alive. The athletic Sadge stirs the lion out of laziness, and into the game of pleasure.

Quality Time

Yes, they're both fire signs, but a big difference here is in quality (fixed-Leo and mutable-Sagittarius). Leo is here to love with their whole heart, and comes alive with eyes riveted on their radiance. Sagittarius is just as ardent, but has an in-motion nature that keeps them tantalizingly out-of-reach.

Look to other factors in the birth chart for harmonies. Working with this difference in quality, Leo shows Sagittarius how to put sustained effort into one area, and bring it to fruition. Sagittarius keeps the Lion inspired, and exploring the new and exotically far away.

The One? Or One of Many?

Trouble begins if Leo suspect that the Archer is an equal opportunity lover. It suits Leo's proud nature to be a whole lotta woman or man -- enough to satisfy every need or desire. A Sagittarius that's restless to experiment makes Leo see red. It's important to know what the other is really looking for, and general love philosophy. This will depend a lot on where each is, in the game of life.

If triggered, Leo's jealousy is a bad fit with the Sagittarian's pursuit of varied experience in love. Their fires burn differently -- Leo is ignited by concentrated attention, and Sadge's sparks cover a lot of ground, in an ever-widening fire zone.

In a relationship, both are social, but Sadge travels further afield. Sadge needs to keep moving, and feel free to follow life's lead. If Leo feels lonely and unappreciated by the busy Archer, trouble ensues.

Sadge's need for freedom conflicts with the Leo's desire to be swept up in an absorbing romance. Sadge can be a loving partner, but can't demonstrate the total devotion in the way Leo wants.

A player Sadge with the prideful Leo is a recipe for disaster. It works when a commitment is in place that both value, and the bond is kept fresh through shared experiences. When Leo trusts that Sadge will return, the bond deepens through the many comings and goings. Kids, holidays, animals, friends, parties -- the Leo-Sadge household is vibrantly colorful. As long as they keep laughing, and work through their differences, this pair has a good run.
