    Off hand, without the beenfit of your chart (other aspects), I would say Sagittarius, if you can accept that they won't always be there just for you. Sagittarians are more fun-loving and more interested in expanding their minds. They love travel and will have a lot of people in their lives, unless there are competing aspects in their charts. Aries, on other hand, is the child of the zodiac. Great at getting things started but tending to lack the ability to follow-through. I think of Aries people as great catalysts but not great partners in life. A bit too selfish to see things from other people's perspectives unless they are highly evolved or very mature. It really does come down to you and what you are looking for. As a person whose North Node is in Leo, I do better with Sagittarians. I find them inspiring, less combative, openminded, honest, and a lot more trustworthy. They bring out the best in me as I journey on the path of my Leo North Node.

    I am a Leo Rising and I would definitely say Sagittarius. I know two married relationships with a Leo Female Sagittarius Male. The Sagittarius Man is good for the Leo Woman because they are a lot of FUN, adventurous and they don't need a lot of attention like the Aries Male. Leo Woman need a lot of attention sometimes and you would be probably competing with the Aries Male on every level where as the Sagittarius Male would let you shine and be YOU!The Aries/Leo pairing works best when it is an Aries Woman and a Leo Man.
