There are three fires in the horoscope signs: the cardinal Aries, the fixed Leo, and the mutable Sagittarius. It should come as no surprise that the fire signs are the spiciest of the star signs, known for their courage, passion, intensity, competitive nature, and their drive for inspiration. Much like fire needs oxygen to fuel itself, the fire signs need inspiration and motivation to keep their fire burning bright. Without this inspiration, fire signs can grow listless, down, and in desperate need for something to keep them pushing forward.
Aries is the cardinal fire sign, and this means they’re usually the born leaders of the pack. Aries is also the starting sign of the star signs, meaning they’re the leaders of leaders in terms of the horoscope. The Aries can tend to act before thinking or speaking, to act on impulse, and to be the most competitive of the signs. This often makes them exciting and exhilarating partners to those they’re most compatible with, as they have a real “take charge” sort of attitude. When Aries sees something they want, they can’t help but go after it.
Leo is the fixed fire sign, which means they’re confident and self-aware in their fire nature. The Leo star sign knows where their weaknesses are, and they know how to balance these weaknesses perfectly with their strengths. Leos want to evolve, they want to develop, and they want to use their knowledge and their lessons to improve and progress through life. However, because Leo puts so much work into themselves, they want to be recognized for their achievements as well. This proud star sign is one that makes for a developed and proud partner.
The mutable Sagittarius is the most flexible and easy-going of the fire signs. Their fire is largely reserved for learning, growing, and developing through all of the many lessons to be learned in life. They want to take all of the little lessons they gain from their travels and experiences and use them to make sense of the bigger picture. Anywhere they can find new lessons is where the Sagittarius star sign wants to be and they’re not known to back down from a challenge. The perfect partner for Sagittarius is the person who wants to go on these adventures with them, explore the world, and learn from everything they can. Through experience is where Sagittarius finds true fulfilment.
Fire Sign Compatibility
Whether you’re an explosive and take-charge Aries, a proud Leo, or an adventurous Sagittarius there are certain sun signs you’re most compatible with. The most compatible for each of the fire signs of the horoscope are:
Aries – Aries naturally gets along very well with the other two fire signs, Leo and Sagittarius. The other fire signs are great at matching with Aries energy while also keeping their argumentative and competitive sides in check. All with highly magnetic energies, the fire signs seem naturally attracted to one another.
Another notable potential partner for Aries is Gemini. Another natural debater, Gemini and Aries will have compelling and intellectually stimulating conversations as they share ideas and sometimes compete for the title of “who knows best”. Gemini and Aries can share passion in a balanced and complimentary way.
Aquarius is another excellent match for Aries. A mutable air sign, Aquarius brings calm to Aries fire and really compliments their creative side. Where Aries is bursting with energy, Aquarius can help them to harness that energy and put it toward something bursting with uniqueness and expression. Aquarius also really appreciates Aries’ ability to come up with new and exciting ideas, striking passion in both signs.
Leo – The Leo star sign loves adoration, they want to give it and they want to receive it in return. The fire signs of Aries and Sagittarius share a natural attraction to Leo, with Sagittarius encouraging spontaneity in Leo and Aries hyping up their passionate and courageous side.
Gemini and Leo can be expected to have explosive, creative, and passionate conversations with a real intellectual connection that touches on a deeper level. If a Leo wants someone they can spend hours upon hours just having stimulating conversation with, there are few signs more compatible than Gemini.
Libra is another natural match with Leo. Libra, like Gemini, is a natural conversationalist with a love for new ideas and figuring out the deeper meanings in life. Leo and Libra also share a love for all things beautiful, refined, and proud, so they’ll love hyping each other up in their artistic or expressionist choices. Like Leo, Libra wishes to love and be loved, so in relationships these two star signs enjoy a loving harmony filled with mutual appreciation and respect.
Sagittarius – Sagittarius is always on the hunt for the next thrill, which makes them natural matches for the fellow fire signs Aries and Leo. Passion, drive, and courage excites the Sagittarius as they bring their own notable spontaneous energies into the relationship.
Aquarius is an easy-going and adventurous sign that provides Sagittarius with the freedom they need to thrive. Sagittarius can’t and won’t be contained, and they need a partner like Aquarius for lasting harmony and happiness. Aquarius delights in watching Sagittarius explore and discover, providing them inspiration and encouragement along the way.
Another sign that suits Sagittarius particularly well is Libra. Like Aquarius, this air sign loves embracing Sagittarius’ need for freedom and they understand what it takes to balance the fire personality. While Aquarius will keep Sagittarius inspired with new philosophical ideas, Libra embraces their natural spontaneous nature. Always seeking something new and exciting, Libra appreciates the Sagittarius ability to be on the ready to dream up a new adventure.
When it comes to compatibility, fire signs are typically best suited to the passion of other fire signs or the inspiration and freedom provided by the horoscope’s air signs. With passion, drive, ambition, and adventure, a fire sign is sure to be an exciting partner no matter your star sign.
