Most Leo people are attracted to the other two fire signs: Aries (March 21- April 19) and Sagittarius (November 22- December 21).

In love, Leo is in a constant search for an active and visionary partner to expand their horizon but who can also understand their desires. The best sign to offer them this kind of energy is Aquarius (January 20- February 18). On the other hand, Leo people seem to be least compatible with Cancer (June 21- July 22) because they seem to have different views on way too many things in life.

Those born on the ninth day of the month are attracted to people who are energetic and ambitious like them but also understanding and tolerant of their behavior. These lovers need above all, a partner that is supportive of all their endeavors and whom will never be selfish and inconsiderate and set them back from their goals.
