A look at Taika Waititi and Rita Ora’s zodiac signs

Waititi was born on August 16, 1975, while Ora’s date of birth is November 26, 1990. 

Therefore the filmmaker is a Leo on the zodiac, while the singer is Sagittarius. 

Bustle describes a Leo and Sagittarius pairing as a “match made in heaven” and a couple “everyone loves being around.”

Thought Catalog adds Leo and Sagittarius signs share the “same energy and passion for life” as well as a similar personality type. 

They first crossed paths four years ago

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, Waititi shared an insight on Instagram into the night he and Ora first met. 

In a post to his 3.1 million followers, he shared a throwback photo of them together on the night as he revealed they met four years ago. 

In the caption, he added they went on to be “mates” before deciding to “complicate things” last year by taking their relationship to the next stage. 

Ora has also reflected on how she and Waititi first met. She told The Independent they crossed paths in Australia. In an interview with the publication in December 2021, she said: “I didn’t expect to find love in Australia, nor was I looking for it.”

As per The Cut, the couple have been an item for more than a year, making it official in March 2021 before facing engagement speculation just months later.
