Leo Woman and Sagittarius Man Compatibility

Famous Leo-Sagittarius Couples:

Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, Christine Taylor and Ben Stiller

This is a really fun combination where the ball is always in play.  One gets to play the Pied Piper and the other one follows merrily along.  The only downside is that Sag is not likely to be romantic enough for Leo.  The Sagittarius man will want to make Ms. Leo woman his pal or traveling companion, as it were, sometimes forgetting to open doors, kiss her hand, and help with the groceries.  This relationship can fall into a yang-yang energy which will work for a friendship, but never for a romance — at least not “romance” in the eyes of the lady lion.

How to Attract a Leo Woman as a Sagittarius Man:

You might have to tone down your friendly approach a little bit.  Leo is the queen and does not appreciate familiarity from strangers.  Not that you have to bow in her presence, but you will need to follow some protocol to gain access to her inner circle.  Your sense of humor is generally an asset, but not if you use it to tease or make fun of her.  Leos take themselves quite seriously, and although they are willing to be honest with themselves, it’s a stress for them to see humor in their own ways.  Be bright and positive.  Focus frankly on what you can do for her and keep her entertained in clownish ways, but take HER seriously.

How to Attract a Sagittarius Man as a Leo Woman:

Don’t expect a Sag man to worship you the way most men do.  He’s willing to pay his respect by giving you any attention at all times, but he is not slavish in nature.  He is looking for a companion.  Be as positive and as upbeat as you can about everything.  One sign of a downer and the Sagittarius man is out the door.  If you’re looking for help with your problems, you’re knocking on the wrong door.  The Sagittarius man likes to travel light and will want someone whose life is in good working order or at least someone who is willing to sweep most of their stuff under the rug.  You’ll have to focus on outer events rather than “the relationship,” and you will have to give him a lot of freedom.

Degree of Romance:

Romance is not particularly a feature here, which is probably not going to please the Leo woman at all.  She does not appreciate being treated like one of the boys.

Degree of Passion:

Passion is directed toward love of life, spontaneity and adventure.  Together this couple may have passion for travel, foreign languages, culture, religion, etc. but it will hardly be for one another.

Degree of Friendship:

Sagittarians usually feel like they can be friends with everybody, but this is not the way the regal Leo woman feels.  If he becomes too familiar too quickly, she will frost over, draw back, and ultimately end the relationship.  He will never understand what went wrong.  Leo’s idea of friendship is helping someone with their problems if they’re in the mood, or “stooping to conquer.”  The legendary arrogance of Sagittarius may also become an issue.  Both signs can be windbags.  Sagittarius is the know-it-all, and Leo loves to deliver long lectures to loyal subjects.  In its own way, Sagittarius is a more royal sign even than Leo, and Leo hates to be one-upped.  All this gets in the way of friendship.

Degree of Marriage:

There isn’t much to bind these two together in marriage, although they could live together comfortably and have a lot of fun.  If they do marry, one of them is going to have to get serious.

Progression of Relationship:

Sagittarius is very casual about everything.  Leo can have formal expectations.  The Sagittarius man will infuriate the Leo woman by calling at the last moment.  He really doesn’t mean any disrespect; it’s just that spontaneity is his religion.  If the Leo woman is very secure with herself, she may be able to hop on his bandwagon, but not without a few glitches and sputters.


Sex between these two tends to be an extraverted, athletic event.  It can be extremely liberated which is thrilling in its rarity.  Both signs love to doff their inhibitions and may dare or egg each other on as to the degree of freedom they wish to express.  This pair doesn’t mind doing it in the woods, on the roof, or in a parking lot — just for the thrill of it all.  It’s always good, healthy fun.  They’re relieved to find each other because the other signs can make it all so complicated.

When It’s Over:

It’s likely Sagittarius will end the relationship … if necessary.  Having become rankled at Leo’s dominating, control issues, Sagittarius will leave — as friendly as ever — much to the irritation of Leo, who would like to think it meant more.  He will feel like they can stay friends for life, but they were never friends to begin with, so she will keep a chip on her shoulder for that very reason.

  1. Millie Don't PlayOctober 12, 2015 at 10:18 am

    Margo, your story sounds awful. :(( What was your mother’s sign, by the way? I’m a Leo and I’ve been seeing a fantastic Sag for a long time. I know already that he’s a womanizer, but he puts so much effort into “us”. He thinks he’s sneaky. But. I’m always four steps ahead.

    It breaks my heart thinking he could ever be unfaithful to me. He is a massive flirt. I’m sort of 70/20 on the whole cheating thing, because I’m the best he’s ever had CLEARLY – and ever will have. And oh boy…the tempers… I know it’s wrong to nag your Sag, but I’m a once in a lifetime thing. I will not make the mistake of bearing children before he decides to sow some filthy a** oats some place else. Us Leos, we are very loyal and we have such high intellect. So, I don’t know for a vast majority of Leos, how they handle things… but if that cheating crap goes down, I better not “see it”.

    Leos can cut people off just like that. You can be on cloud 9 and in two minutes, we will shatter your world if cheating’s confirmed. When we give our hearts, we give our all. I don’t want my Sag boyfriend’s unit any place near me if it’s been in someone else 12 hours ago. That would get him punched in the face – and depending on how much of a sadist he may be… That may turn him on, or he’ll realize he got into some real stuff.

    Leo women don’t play around. When we give… We “really” give. What I am spewing are not threats. We are known for our sunny posteriors. I guess what I’m saying is… I don’t want to feel like I’m on top of the world and then it turns out the man of my dreams is wooing 10 “average” harpies the same way with that silk tongue. God forbid.

    I guess I’ll wait until we get married. I love him to bits and bits and pieces.

  2. my biological father is sagittarius,he wooed my young naive mother to marry him, her family didn’t approve of him,and told her they wouldn’t support her decision. they lived together for 11 years had 2 kids,and then he started cheating on her,she couldn’t believe it at first,and he didn’t have the humanity to come clean about it,and things got so messy.and their split was absolute hell for us.we moved to another country near my mother’s family.and my father again showed up,his new relationship wasn’t working the way he wanted,and he wanted his family back .my mother wasn’t having that.told him to go.he harassed her,kidnapped us twice,spread rumors about her.fought with my grandpa and uncles.and then gave up.and for 8 years he didn’t even come to visit us(me and my sister)and when he did i couldn’t compromise myself to meet him.it actually broke my heart,hurt like hell.but i made the decision i will not regret.and my first boyfriend was sagittarius,he was a dear old friend to me from high school,i always thought of him as someone i can trust,when we began dating,i put all my effort in the relationship,just to find out he has been cheating with some girl (i thought)was our friend,the girl is scorpio,and he would always tell me how overly emotional,skanky and cheap and immature she is.i haven’t talked to him ever since,deleted his number,blocked his facebook,…and totally cut all contacts with him,and yet years later he calls me whenever he is on some weird certain moods,with different numbers and i never talk to him,i just can’t.
    i’m leo,and this two man i can think that did the most unforgivable things to me.and both are sagittarius. my leo friend also married a sagittarius guy and he did the same thing to her.so if you are planning a future with these men you should be ready for the betrayal that will come with it,if you can take it then go for it.i know that i can never let myself to feel that down and worthless.

  3. I love this page. My sag hubby and I have been married for 4 years. We are pregnant with what most likley will be a gemini. The fights are devestating. Sex is fantastic. We are pretty close but we can do our own thing if I’m not having a queeny moment. I’ve never ever felt like my husband wasn’t romantic and as for a sag/ leo rating mine gets a 10 out of 10. I have a dream life.

  4. I’ve been dating a Sag for one year now and it has been the best relationship of my adult life! He’s not selfish in bed it’s the total opposite, we get along like the best of friends and he still opens doors for me everywhere we go. He listens and is very kind, understanding, and patient. Some things said in this article are true to some degree but a persons background, the way they were raised etc all have a part in shaping ones personality. At the end of the day we are all individuals regardless of our sign so as these are interesting to read I wouldn’t base a relationship on it.

  5. I’m a 34 year old female Leo and I have been with my sag man since 1997. I personally think we are a perfect match. We met in 1991 and he had a girl and I had a guy but we became so close that we ended up being best friends before we got together. He is not selfish in bed AT ALL. And I think it’s great that we can be ourselves together and that we have such a great friendship because I think that is what relationships are all about. Trusting the other person and truly having a great friendship. We married in sep. Of 2009 and I wouldn’t trade my sag man for anything in the world. I think leos and sags are a great fit together.

  6. I am a leo woman and I was in a relationship with a sag male. He was a very selfish lover, he was not romantic at all. He was so blunt that sometimes it came off as being rude. I had to find every forgiving bone in me to make it work as long as it did. I broke up with him and I am currently dating another sag male who is totally opposite. He is not a selfish lover, he is so romantic and thoughtful and I love the way he expresses his feelings for me not only through actions but with words. He showers me with compliments and admiration. I wouldn’t trade him for anything.

  7. I’m a Leo woman and I was with a Sagittarius man for almost 6 years. We both have of our ascendants in Aquarius. I strongly believe he was one of my soul mates in this lifetime because of the immediate attraction we both felt when we first met, the love that we shared, the ups and downs that we went through and everything we both learned throughout and after our relationship ended. The good times we had were great but when times got bad they were bad. We shared a lot of the same interests. We could talk every day from anywhere between 1 hour to 5 hours. He was my first in everything. Sex got better as we got older since we started when we were young. I would say he’s the best sex I’ve ever had until recently, my boyfriend is a Libra and so far he’s starting to surpass my ex  which is a good thing because I thought I wasn’t going to be able to experience sex as good or even better with another man. We did travel a lot, went out to a lot of places, he supported me as well as I him. I didn’t like that he put his friends first and even though he says he didn’t, actions always speak louder than words and this relationship defined that for me crystal clear. I didn’t like that he was always doing illegal things and getting into trouble with the law. As we got older, I noticed that he matured but I was still more mature than he was and slowly but surely we started growing apart and going into different directions in life. He knows I loved him dearly more than he’ll ever know and I know he loved me but throughout all the years that we were together, I always had suspicions that he would cheat on me, from getting private phone calls from girls telling me they had sex with him, from finding an empty condom wrapper, text messages, and the final time I let it happen a girl answered his phone when I was calling him. In the end he came clean and confessed he had cheated on me numerous times and when I say numerous, I mean NUMEROUS! I would ask him why he did it and he says he was young and pretty much doesn’t have a clear cut answer which is not surprising. I ended our relationship a year ago and he started a relationship right away with the last girl he cheated on me with which she also happens to be a Leo. Now she’s pregnant while he sits in jail waiting on trial for a vop and new charges. He tells me that he still loves me but I don’t love him anymore and he knows it. I did forgive him for everything and that’s how I’m able to speak to him to this day. Forgiveness is very powerful because it set me free! In the end I don’t regret anything that happened between us because I know it happened for many reasons. I have learned a lot about myself, love, and relationships. I am attracted to Sagittarius men, but would like to try with an Aries or Leo. For now I’m with my Libra guy and I’m happy!:)Hopefully it can be a lasting relationship and I know it will definitely be better than this one because so far it is…

  8. Im a sag woman, to be honest sagittarius is just the best and the only match for Leo. Tell me who do you think can tolerate the leo or sag, come on all marriages and relationships experience ups and downs, all these happens and helps to mould us, what you and I can make out of these ups and downs are what make us matured and compatible. Sorry guys I LUV LEONS WITH ALL MY HEART

  9. You know, the amazing thing about the Sagittarius man is exactly that he’s an arrogant ‘know-it-all’ and something ‘even more royal than Leo’. He’s a wonderful breath of fresh air compared to all those men who are intimidated by you. And girls – let him plan all your trips and don’t interfere – and be sure to travel with him as much as you can. You won’t regret it. Male or female, Sagittarius are the best travelling companion one can ever wish for. They’re amazing.

  10. i am a sag man and have been comletely in love with a leo woman.. we’ve been “bestfriends” for 6 years or so.. in the last year i finally told her exactly how i felt for her. (although im sure she already knew). but she keeps dateing these guys who treat her like crap.. how do i change this?

  11. I am a leo Woman with numerous fire signs in me. I’mmarried to a sagittarius and I gotta say, its horrible! All he does is push push push every button I have in every bad way. It is the longest relationship I’ve been in all his pushing is at a mentally abusive state. He is controlling and lacks trust he treats me like a child. I’m thinking its time to end this for the sake of sanity

  12. i am a leo girl and im in a saggitarius relationship too and my guy is soo amazingly sweet , his so understandable and my mum and dad are divorced and he fully cheers and supports me with my condition i never knew we would be we started out as friends little did we know we would end up in such a wonderful relationship we always and he makes me laugh all the time im feeling down in the dumps wow !! this is my first relationship which was soo unexpectedly the best thing that had happened to me so i guess those leo girls or guys want a partner go for sagittarius u will love it trust meur hehe

  13. Lost in RenoFebruary 6, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    I agree, I am a Sag guy crushing hard on a Leo lady who is 7 yr’s younger… we met off a dating site, and on our first meeting were together 6 hours just talking… I don’t get to see her but every other week, but OMG this is crazy… it is like she was sent to me from heaven…

  14. Hw can it b 5/10..??
    all of the sites that ive seen say its an almost perfect match..
    m a Leo girl crushing hard on a Sag guy…
    is its not Sag…then who is the perfect match for Leo??

  15. I am a Leo woman and love my sag man. Goin on five years strong. Yes he is spontaneous and unpredictable buy that’s what I love. We’ve had our ups and downs but that’s any relationship. You have to communicate and have understanding to make any relationship work. Love my sag man and wouldn’t trade him for nothing.

  16. Yes I forgot to mention. I am a Leo woman.

  17. I have had 4 affairs. All have been sagi guys. I couldn’t help being instantly attracted to them. But it brings tears to my eyes to think of how each of the relationship ended. Will never allow myself to fall for a sagi man ever again. I hope God helps me with my resolve.

  18. I met a Sag man about 2 mths ago he is 10yrs my senior. And he is definetly a wanderer, he like to travel, he is moody, and is very straight forward. I love it as a Leo woman it’s a turn on. He treats me very well, the friendship, and intimacy are awesome. I am anxious to see where the next 2 mths take us. I am Happy and in Awe.

  19. My Sag relationship happened immediately because of our chemistry. We were engaged after a month of knowing each other. Currently, we are living on different parts of the country, and only seeing each other once per month, which doesn’t really work for me, but we’re supposed to be moving in together in Dec so I can handle it a bit longer.

    He opens my car door, and is chivelrous, but does feel a little too comfortable in my presence, but everybody has always said that about me, that I make them feel so comfortable…at least he’s being real up front.

    I do feel like he’s a little selfish in bed…but I’m a give give giver and of course he’s going to take. Don’t know how much longer I will want to give without feeling like I’m getting…

    I have a Sag friend who has been my friend for years, and we’ve always talked about geting together but our friendship keeps me feelings like thats all we are…and all we ever will be.

    I def have a travel companion in my Sag fiance. I’m looking forward to the journey!!

  20. I am in a marriage with a Sag. I can only confirm that this here is so so true.

  21. im afraid about this zodiac sign copatibility. I am a leo woman and i just met a sag guy about a month ago. we kinda flow in terms of chemistry which is one of my aspirations in relationship but im afraid of the future. With all of these charts. he actually called off our date at a dying minute.
    where is this gonna end? Is this gonna end well? will this work out? im begginning to be sceptical aboutthe relationship. in a fix.

  22. I’m really starting to believe your astrology. The first guy that I ever THOUGHT i was interested in was a Sag. Boy, when I got to know him my mind changed completely. He’s such a roamer, only looking for fun in life and doesn’t seem to take things all that seriously. I was just kind of turned off by his ability to be so comfortable around me, like I was a friend. He didn’t try to impress me at all WHICH IS GOOD but I didn’t like what I was getting. The next guy I fell for was a cancer. Let’s just say that was a completely different story but had to end too.

  23. Oh! Let me just add that I have a gemini rising and sagittarius desendant (dont quite understand what that part means) but I can be direct and tell the truth just as much as a sagittarius, which at times they don’t like. But we just do not get along.

  24. I totally agree with this article. As I have read some of the comments and noticed a few people have had a great leo/sagittarius relationship, I beg to differ when it comes to mine. It seems to me all I meet are sagittarius men and I must that EVERY last relationship (this is over a 15 year period) with them didn’t go well. They were selfish in bed, rude, not very outgoing (when it came to me), constantly wanted a too open relationship, and when it all ended, wanted to be friends!!! WTH! Now they were fun and affectionate in the beginning but that’s behind closed doors. But the main issue was they wanted to see a bunch of different women, which does not work in my book! And no sooner than I get over one sagittarius man, here comes another one!! I am NEVER getting involved with another sagittarius!!! NEVER! Just like the end of the article, I always end of saying ” we weren’t friends to begin with!

  25. i believe sag n leo r a 8/10 at least 7…only bad thing is we get along so good its more like a friendship!? the passion is eh…

  26. Everyone must keep faith and a successful relationhip does not happen suddenly but flourish slowly…

  27. Nobody is perfect and I can say that astro sign are about 95% accurate and the 5% is left for human to work it out. I have seen plenty of Leo-Sag combo works and believe me it’s not magic, because if it’s meant to be, bingo it will last…I am not sure if any of you believe in Destiny and that marriage are made in heaven…I have seen it and I am currently in a committed relationship with a Sag. My father’s friend who is a CEO(Sag) in Calgary has been married with a LEO for 42 years and believe me there are plenty of couple that are leading successful lives and if it’s meant to be, it is unstoppable except death will do them apart my way..I thanks GOD for sending my Sag to me..Amen..

  28. I’m a Sagittarius and have been dating this girl for less than a month.. Leo girl is really funny and cool. horoscope is right but its how u balance it and bring it to the table. i like her and starting to fall for her too. 🙂

  29. I am a Leo gal who was dating a Sag. He started to seek other relationships but did not inform me he was no longer interested. He was very selfish in that he only strived to fufill his dreams without considering mine at all. I gave him plenty of space, had his own place. Was not an open person about his feelings. He was a selfish lover. I don’t understand why astrology say that these are the two great signs for each each other. I tried to attend to all his traits and was still unsucessful in making the relationship work. The above description was very accurate.

  30. Well I must say some of it resonates and other things do not. My husband is awesome and we’ve been married for almost 20 years and daughter almost 17. Maybe we are the exception. I’m used to being the exception 🙂 I feel alot of things true with zodiac info/astrology but nothing ever 100% because it is what you make of it/freedom of choice.

  31. I’m a Leo. The most harmonious, fun, and uncomplicated relationship i ever had was with a Sagittarius. I ended things because of age differences, and the fact that I was too young to truly settle down. We remained friends with no hard feelings. I’ve always wanted to run into another Sag and now I have. It’s great! We have an open, expressive connection. We both love to laugh, have fun, and like to travel. My Sag is very romantic in expression and he’s whisking me away for a little fun and romance……all planned, by the way. I think Leos and Sagittarians are supreme matches.

  32. i am about 2 months into a leo & sag relationship..
    i totally get what you are saying here but alot of other sites and a majority of astrology books says were perfect for each other..
    me & my sag are going great and yes it is only two months into the relo but we were seeing each other a while before that.

    his last relo was with another leo… and exactly what you are saying here is completely what his and her relo was like..

  33. I agree with this almost completely. You forgot to mention that Sags are selfish in bed, at least mine was. And I actually got rid of him! Go Leo Females!!!

  34. I think the article is true. I am a leo female who just got out of a relationship with a sagittarius over a month ago. He wasn’t romantic nor reliable. Our dates were spontaneous, which he didn’t think were a big deal. He didn’t want to be my friend after the break up, although I wanted to be his. Who cares I wish him the best with his new girl friend whose an Aqua.

  35. i am a Sagittarius man and i just recently got out of a relationship with a leo woman and the ending and much of the passage was 100% correct…crazy how this zodiac thing works

  36. I think this is quite true.
    I was in a relationship with a Sagittarius for over a year.
    I wish I saw this page before I got with him.
    It seems other sites & books say Sagittarius & Leo are 10/10 but your’s is actually accurate.
    It lacked romance and I hated his spotaneity sometimes.
    Well, at least I learned something.
    And overall, it was interesting.

  37. No,I haven’t changed the rating. Good luck in your new relationship.
