What Sagittarius Man Likes about the Leo Woman

Her ambitious nature. The Leo woman is a go-getter and extrovert. She has a deep desire to achieve and make a name for herself. She’s a capable and savvy leader who stops at nothing to get what she wants. The adventurous Sagittarius is bold and ambitious himself, so he appreciates her fiery style.

Her pridefulness. Leo is represented by a lion and the Sun itself. The Leo woman is big, bright, and likes to take up a lot of space. She loves admiration and being appreciated for who she is. Her prideful nature can irritate some, but not the Sag man. He sees its benevolence and the lovable characteristics it bestows her with.

That she’s the life of the party. Leo’s fire sign nature, and Sun rulership give her a powerful persona that’s full of fun, flirty energy. She’s not shy about sharing it, either. Her favorite place is the stage, and she has a flair for dominating it. You’ll rarely see her as a backup dancer; no, she strives to be the main act. Sagittarius, also a boisterous fire sign, gets a kick out of this.

Her playfulness. As a fire sign, she possesses a very outward, childlike nature that wants to play and frolic in the Sun. She is often referred to as the Cosmic Child. Sagittarius is on board with this, as he has a playful and jubilant nature.

Her adventurousness. Her penchant for adventure might not match Sagittarius’s (no one does, really). But she does love a good escapade, so long as it brings her to places where things are happening. She loves any opportunity that gives her the chance to shine. While the Sag has different motivations for adventure, he loves anyone who is game for exploration, no matter their motives.

Her leadership skills. As a fire sign, she is a natural-born and talented leader. Leo doesn’t hesitate to strike out to try something and make things work. Sagittarius is also a fire sign and admires the leadership that Leo’s fixed-sign nature bestows her with. Neither is a cardinal sign, though, so they can jostle for the lead here and there.

Her creativity. Her Sun rulership gives Leo a dynamic, outward, and creative energy. She is here to express her uniqueness, and she wants it to be seen by all. You can see her sparkly, energetic, and charismatic energy expressed in her fashion choices. She loves wearing nice things and dresses to dazzle.

Her warmth and generosity. Leo has outward-flowing caring energy. She is a gift giver and loves to surprise those close to her with nice things. She’ll respond quickly and assist others when they need help (so long as she’s treated with respect). Sagittarius is also kindhearted, so he enjoys seeing her generous side come out.

That she likes to surprise him. Leo likes to surprise her partner with fun things. It might be a trip, a love letter, etc. Sagittarius likes this, not because he’s a romantic, but because he likes the novelty.

That she forgives easily. Leo, like all fire signs, can be quick to anger. She is sensitive and can get triggered by a partner quite easily. Luckily, though, she doesn’t hold on to grudges. She’s quick to forgive and move on. Sagittarius is precisely the same way.

What Sagittarius Man Dislikes about the Leo Woman

Her fixation on ego gratification. Leo can be very ego-driven. She needs to feel important and validated by the world around her. This drives her biggest fear: lack of recognition. She won’t broadcast it, but the people around her know that her proud and regal ego is quite sensitive and needs to be puffed up. It will wilt without praise, especially if there’s criticism.

Her fixation on being appreciated and loved by the people around her. Be it her friend group, her family, loved ones. She expects a lot of time, validation, and devotion from per partner. If she feels ignored, she can become provoked. Hopefully, she behaves in ways that make her deserve such affection. But either way, this can be a little annoying for Sag since he doesn’t place too high a value on affirming people’s egos. Fortunately, he can tolerate the egoic Leo better than most other signs. He might even find it funny.

When she’s controlling. Leo is a fixed sign, which gives her a more rigid nature. It can make her unbending, even intolerant. This proves a challenge for the independent, free-roaming Sagittarius. She could be triggered by his freedom-loving tendencies and try to reign him in, which would be a big no-no for Sag, who doesn’t like anyone trying to exert control over him. Note that Leo doesn’t control for control’s sake, as a Scorpio might. She controls because she wants you to see her, appreciate her, and know you are there for her.

When she gets pouty. Leo needs to feel like she’s #1. She’ll pout and even be a little childlike when she’s not getting the attention she feels that she deserves.

When she’s deceptive. Leo isn’t a big liar, as she, like him, prefers the truth. It’s just that Sagittarius has a shallow threshold for lying. Leo won’t lie often, but it’s to save face and protect her ego when she does. Leo is, after all, a sign that hates looking bad, so she will manipulate things to avoid it from happening. This is not how Sagittarius behaves, and it doesn’t sit well with him.

When she wants him to be more romantic. Sagittarius isn’t the most romantic lover. He’s more of a treat-you-like-a-best-friend kind of lover. Leo is quite the romantic, though, and a demonstrative one at that. She will leave little notes around, hearts, etc. He will appreciate this, but it’s not so much his style. And he might have a hard time reciprocating in a way that makes her feel cared for and validated.

When she gets lazy. The regal Lio doesn’t like to do menial, simple tasks like sweeping or taking out the trash. She feels that it’s beneath her. Or perhaps she’s just being a bit lazy about it. Either way, this is a tough challenge for their Sagittarius partner to cope with, as he’s equally avoidant of mundane tasks.

When she’s possessive. Leo loves to show off her Sag man in the early stages of the relationship. But as her feelings grow, she might start to become territorial. Sagittarius wants to make her feel good about this but will struggle if he feels like her claim to him oppresses him.

That she puts him on a pedestal. Leo tends to place her partner on an unachievable pedestal. And when she discovers that her partner doesn’t justify such high expectations, she grows irritated. Sagittarius is annoyed by this whole process, as he didn’t want her to place him up there to begin with.


What Leo Woman Likes about the Sagittarius Man

That he’s honest, open, and sincere. She’ll be happy when, on the first introduction, he tells her right then and there how attractive he thinks she is. She, too, is upfront about her feelings, so they hit it off right away.

That he’s playful and innocent. Sagittarius has the endearing energy of a child. He’s playful, curious, explorative, and always looking to learn, grow and expand. Leo also has youthful energy, and when she’s with him, she feels like she can gleefully indulge in it.

That he’s not concerned with what others think of him. Sagittarius is who he is, and he’s okay with that. He doesn’t feel the need to prove himself to anyone. His persona is “I know what I’m worth, so take it or leave it.” It works, and he is admired for inspiring others and spreading wisdom and humor to the world. Leo admires this (and envies it a bit), as she is much more attached to how others like and praise her.

That he doesn’t hold grudges. This is a trait that both of these signs have, and it works out well for them as a couple. As fire signs, they can both be quite hot-headed at times, but they can cool off just as quickly and allow tensions to blow over. It might be a little harder for her to let go of a fight, as she is a fixed sign. But he is more than happy to be the first to initiate reconciliation.

His intellect and mental acuity. Sagittarius is a witty, clever, and intelligent guy. Leo herself is no slouch with mental acuity, as she has a bright mind. So she fully appreciates the Sag guy’s mental prowess.

His charm and charisma. Both of these signs are incredibly outgoing and know how to work a crowd. Sagittarius has a way with words and a compelling nature that draws people to him. Leo does, too, so she appreciates having someone by her side that can keep up with her.

That he gives her lots of freedom. No one likes to feel crowded or oppressed by a partner, or any person for that matter. Sagittarius gives his Leo partner the space she needs, as he’s doesn’t have needy or clingy tendencies.

What Leo Woman Dislikes about the Sagittarius Man

That he dodges issues. Leo prefers to address problems right away. And when he avoids discussing a straightforward issue, she’ll want to pull him aside and call him out on it. She can get very annoyed by his carefree attitude around essential matters. If there’s an issue forming and she wants to be all over it before it gets bigger. This can happen a lot with domestic issues, like paying the bills, which he likes to avoid thinking about.

His flirtatious nature. That Sag’s renowned flirty nature can easily provoke Leo’s jealous side. It’s funny that it’s what draws her to him at first. But as their relationship develops, she grows to despise it.

That he doesn’t idolize her. Sagittarius prefers to see all people, including his partner, as equals. Leo likes to feel like royalty and enjoys being put on a pedestal by others, especially by her partner. Since he doesn’t do this, she might struggle without this type of adoration that she craves.

When his blunt, frank words hurt her ego. Sagittarius doesn’t believe in being selective in his words or having to tiptoe around people’s egos. He believes strongly in the truth and telling it like it is. He feels he does everyone around him a favor by candidly pointing out their shortcomings. This does not bode well for the sensitive Leo ego. His verbal barbs will inevitably fall on her, and there will be hell to pay.

That he roams around a lot. Sagittarius naturally leads a very social life while also juggling multiple projects. He is a busy man. Sagittarius is a passionate lover, but he can neglect to spend time with his partner. This is tough for Leo, who wants his focus to be squarely on her. She’s expressive and ardent in love, and she expects the same in return.

When he doesn’t give her enough attention. These signs have different concepts of attention needs. Sagittarius needs less attention in a relationship. In comparison, Leo needs abundant, focused attention on the regular. She puts a lot of energy into supporting her partner and values reciprocity. She will grow angered if she doesn’t see her affections returned.

When he’s unstable and flighty. Sagittarius can be a bit of a dreamer and get lost in his head. His fixed sign nature can also make him a bit scattered. He easily pursues too many projects and spreads himself thin. Leo, being a fixed sign, is more solid and consistent. So she struggles with his vacillating nature.

His commitment-phobic tendencies. The freedom-loving Sagittarius is the most aloof sign when it comes to commitment. Leo, as a fixed sign, is naturally loyal and committed. As the relationship builds, Leo naturally feels more commitment-oriented with her Sag. This could freak out Sagittarius, who fears getting tied down or hurting the other person later if he were to decide not to reciprocate.

When he acts condescending, Sagittarius prides himself on his intellect and loves to teach and give advice. This is a great trait, but sometimes he can go too far and come across as condescending or superior. This brings out a standoffish side of Leo and can lead to arguments.

Sagittarius Man & Leo Woman Sexual Compatibility

Score: 9/10

Sex between these two can be like an Olympic event. They both have a strong sex drive and are untamed and desirous without abandon. He brings creative lovemaking ideas, and she’s an adventurous lover herself. They mix it up freely, and both love a challenge. The best thing about their sex life is the sensual passion they share. They are playful and physical throughout the day, but things get kicked up to a whole new level between the sheets. Leo brings the inner fire for the act of sex, while Sagittarius fires up the expansive element. He loves different positions and having sex in various locations.

Because they are trine signs, their sexual relationship might come as a surprise for both of them. The energy is so harmonious that they will feel liberated to be exactly who they are in bed. The overwhelming passion they each possess finally gets an outlet. This leads to frequent and exciting sex.

While sex between trine flows easily, it’s not always the most refreshing. Sometimes friction and tension help sex be exciting. But since they are fire signs, their energy should always excite the other. They can enjoy sexual energy that is unmatched by almost any other pair.

Their sex life provides them with a perfect way to connect and let loose, one that they can (and will) indulge in regularly.

Sagittarius Man & Leo Woman Relationship Score

Score: 9/10

Since these signs are trine, this relationship gets a comfortably high score. Trine energy promotes harmony, luck, and ease and is very favorable for relationships. The Sagittarius and Leo simply get each other, and their energies flow together effortlessly.

Both signs are fire dominant, and they each bring their brand of explosive and fun-loving energy to the relationship. They share mutual optimism, generosity, enthusiasm, and overall carefree spiritedness. Fire energy is outward and expansive, leading them out into the world together. They both like to party hard and utilize their energy to the fullest.

Upon first meeting, the chemistry is instantaneous and explosive. Their love is compulsive and goes from 0 to 100 right away. Sex happens quickly and naturally, potentially on the first date/encounter.

Sag & Leo Keys to Success

Laying down freedom needs. Anyone who partners with Sagittarius should sit down with him and develop a clear vision of what freedom and independence look like to him within their relationship. What type of relationship is he looking for? How busy is he? How much independent time is he expecting?

This is especially important for a Leo partner, as she needs a little extra coddling than he’s used to. She’ll likely be cool with him being independent, but she might want more attention from him than he realizes. This is the time to get on the same page with him.

If he’s having a hard time giving her the time she needs, she might consider going out of her way to develop a hobby or interest that allows her to pull back and be less demanding on his time when he needs to feel independent.

Sag may need to cool down his bluntness. Sagittarius can offend those around him at the drop of a hat, and he probably won’t even realize he did it. There’s an innocence about his lack of tact in conversation, and he’s such a charmer, but it doesn’t change that he offends so easily with his words.

He can learn to finesse his words a bit better and give lighter recommendations for his sensitive Leo with work. It benefits both when he does, as he can help bring Leo back to earth when her ego gets inflated, so long as he does it gently and with tact.

She might have to relax some of her jealous and possessive tendencies. Sag is an ego-boosting catch for the Leo. He’s free-spirited and wild, so she feels powerful and important when she catches him. She must remember, though, that no one truly “catches” a Sag, at least in terms of possessing him completely.

If she tries to limit him or horde his energy for her use only, she will get burned. A little bit of possessiveness and dependency is endearing to some partners, but not the Sag.

They might need to tone down the fire at times. These two act on passion and impulse as much as they can. It’s a lot of fun the majority of the time, but the fire between them can burn too hot at other times, and they can set ablaze their more sensitive emotional energies if they aren’t careful. Conflicts between these two can be pretty aggressive. They must remember that they each have sensitivities that require some cool moments, too. There’s a time to slow down, have a night in, and be calm. If they don’t do this, they might end up turning to someone else who can provide them with some peaceful energy from time to time.

They have to understand when the time has come to slow down, stay at home, talk about nothing at all, and just be quiet. If they don’t, they will probably turn to someone who can give them this kind of peace from time to time.

They should work to keep things fresh. Trine energy is fantastic for harmony. They simply feel each other and love each other’s style. The trouble is that trine energy could be too easy for one of the partners (I’m looking at you, mutable Sag). If there isn’t enough excitement and too much harmony, emotions could fade.

It is mainly Leo that should be aware of this, as her fixed nature is the more likely to settle into the situation. She needs to remain aware that the variable nature of her mutable sign Sagittarius requires excitement and newness to stay engaged. If she senses his interest in her needs more developing, she might consider taking some trips together or anything else to get the emotions and passion flowing again.

Overall, this is an engaging, optimistic, laid-back kind of relationship that is positive, theatrical, and a bit whimsical. Playful extravagance exudes from this couple. Both want to leave a mark on the world, and together they can both achieve their worldly desires.

  1. I’ve been dating a sag man for just over a year. I’m the beginning it was full of love. Non stop texting, wanting to see each other. I’m a Leo so I need attention all the time. I think this is too much for him he does tell me he’s in love with me and he wants to be with me however he plays the hot and cold game. He used to want me to stay the night with him and his son are staying at my house now he doesn’t wanna do that anymore. After reading this I see that maybe he needs more space. I stop texting them like I used to I stop going to his house like I used to. And now he comes over to say hi to me. Sex is amazing. We still do that often. I want to win him back I just don’t know how to. I love to have fun and I have a pretty busy life. The thing is that he lives across the street from me. He has broke up with me once I told him no. We stay together it just seems very rocky. I did ask him two days ago if he was happy I didn’t let him break up with me and he said yes. I also asked him why he’s with me and he said because I make him happy. His actions don’t match his words now and they used to. I think I’m gonna read this over again. The Leo part is dead on.

    1. dear Sebby,
      I am a leo girl and i am also dating a sag man to. It really important to be mysterious and not a gum. They want a independent woman who is strong and show him that you can get any man you want. When they see and realize that they will stay with you. Be straight to the point and say what you think they appreciate that. It’s hard to let them go but believe me how often you do this they will get back. Sag mans are over thinkers they will think about you and text you but don’t be to easy for him. If your’e to easy they will get bored really quick. So step up your game!!! You are having your own busy life!! even if you see him look at your phone idk just don’t give him attention. They will miss you and reach you

  2. The sag man and Leo woman description is exactly what’s happening to me and my my wife, I’m glad I was able to read about this…
