Fire Signs of the Zodiac: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius

fire signs

There are different groups of Zodiac signs that share similar characteristics. One of those groups is based on the elements: fire, earth, air, and water. Fire signs have bright, explosive personalities and live a life full of zest.

They’re passionate and can sometimes grow hotheaded. Let’s take a look at the individual fire signs, common traits they share, and what other elements their signs are compatible with.

The 3 Fire Signs

The only way to know your sun sign for certain is by using a birth chart calculator. Because of leap years, the start and end dates of each sign change slightly from year to year. By using the natal chart calendar, you can see what the dates were exactly during your birth year. You can determine your sun, moon, and ascendant signs.

Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are the three fire signs of the Zodiac.

If your sun sign is a fire sign, you have a vibrant personality. You’re strong willed, and you don’t let anyone get in your way. You feel comfortable in leadership positions and enjoy the attention that comes with success.


An Aries is the most well-known of the fire signs. They possess the quintessential leadership traits and passion of a fire sign. They live bravely and always choose the exciting option.

They have a constant need for adventure and need a way to express their passion and creativity. In order to keep themselves entertained, they will try new things and will often take risks.

While they may get stereotyped as the hotheaded, irrational, explosive sign, they actually are quite optimistic. They believe the world can always be better, and they only fall into that angry persona when others won’t make efforts to create that better world.


A Leo has the heart of a lion and a thirst for adventure. They will boldly go forward and try new things, leading others to that adventure. They have a lot of raw talent, and with hard work, they can truly do incredible things. They are willing to put in the work to make a project succeed.

They don’t just lead from the top; they’re down there doing the work along with their team, which makes them a true leader. They are passionate and work hard to get the job done, so they commonly get elected to leadership positions.


Of the fire signs, a Sagittarius is the most friendly. They make excellent partners, coworkers, and friends. Once they find their person or people, they’re loyal to the very end. They’re kind to everyone they come in contact with, and speak with a sophistication that sets them apart as excellent conversationalists.

They are honest, because they believe telling the truth leads to stronger relationships down the line. While they do make great friends, they have the trademark independence of a fire sign.

They are confident in their own decisions and have no problem spending time on their own and relying on themselves. While they may not be the traditional type of leader that searches out positions of leadership, they are the stewards of their own lives and lead themselves in quiet ways.

Compatibility with the 3 Fire Signs

The fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius) all have such vibrant personalities, but that passion can turn explosive. Ever heard of a flame that burned too bright? A romantic relationship between two fire signs could burn so hot that it can’t possibly last.

However, if they learn to temper their passion, they could have a love that keeps them both warm. They’ll both have a sense of adventure, so if they stay level headed and don’t descend into squabbles, they can be good adventure partners.

  • Compatibility with Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn): Earth signs are grounded while Aries are confident. These traits can lead to a unique type of stubbornness, so if an earth sign and a fire sign disagree, things could get explosive. Neither of them will willingly budge.
  • Compatibility with Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius): Air signs have their head in the clouds and are willing to try new things. This willingness to shake things up will help them get along with a fire sign. The fire sign will decide what adventure to go on and the air sign has no problem throwing caution to the wind and going along on the adventure.
  • Compatibility with Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces): Water signs are very “go with the flow,” so they’ll likely be willing to go along with a fire sign’s crazy plans. However, water signs commonly have a calming clarity in their mindset that may not coexist well with a fire sign’s explosive personality.

Fire Signs: The Sign of the Bold

As one of the fire signs of the zodiac, you find joy when you light a fire in someone else’s soul. Your spirit burns so brightly, and you think that everyone else should feel the passion that you do. Of the astrological signs, fire signs are the boldest. The fire element is what sets them apart as the world shakers and changers.
