Sagittarius Sun Sign Compatibility Matches
Matches with Sagittarius
The following are sun sign comparisons for Sagittarius the Archer. These interpretations are written with romantic relationships in mind.
Enthusiasm, a sense of adventure, and high spirited play infuse your relationship. You both feel you can be yourselves fully with one another: you don’t have to tone down any of your exuberance and energy, the way you might with someone else. In fact, you inspire and vitalize one another’s strength. ARIES sometimes clashes or competes with other strong individuals, but SAGITTARIUS is tolerant, not threatened, and doesn’t take the bait. Also, you both need personal freedom and space, and even if you spend all of your time together, you are unlikely to feel smothered in this relationship. A happy twosome!
While SAGITTARIUS thrives on variety, travel, socializing, and exploring, TAURUS is often content to plug away at the same thing day after day, until it nearly drives SAGITTARIUS crazy! In some ways, you are the “odd couple” with opposite traits. Although it is nice to think that your opposite natures can complement each other, the truth is that you may also need to do many things separately in order to be happy with each other, because SAGITTARIUS is likely to become bored by TAURUS’s routine and TAURUS is likely to feel very distracted and unsettled from SAGITTARIUS’s wide-ranging interests. If you can appreciate and understand each other, you can help add balance to your lives.
Both of you are curious individuals, rather restless and on-the-go. You can expect your lives together to be very active, with lots of changes, probably frequent moves, adjustments, surprises, and new challenges. These changes will bring lots of ups and downs, but overall both of you will be greatly enriched by these diverse activities and interests.
SAGITTARIUS is more philosophical and has grander plans than GEMINI, who takes each step as it comes and find more pleasure in the little things in life. SAGITTARIUS enjoys being on a crusade or mission for some philosophical reason or for personal gain, while GEMINI finds SAGITTARIUS’s dreams and schemes entertaining and interesting. You often see things from a different perspective, but usually you can benefit from each other’s viewpoint and you are adaptable and flexible enough to listen to each other and benefit from each other.
Personal freedom is important to both of you and you are likely to find it in this relationship. Even if you are always together you do not cling to, or smother, each other. On the whole you are very compatible.
Your natures are so different that you are bound to clash at times. Very often when SAGITTARIUS feels the urge to travel, explore, expand, and follow a new star, CANCER feels just the opposite: the urge to be close to family, to establish roots, to have children and provide for them, to be near close friends. SAGITTARIUS’s desire for freedom and exploration is often at cross purposes with CANCER’s need for security.
SAGITTARIUS tends to also be philosophical and detached about personal matters while CANCER takes a much more personal, subjective, compassionate, and emotional approach to life. Although in theory your differences can complement each other, and sometimes they do, there are times when you will have to be very creative and imaginative to find ways to meet everyone’s needs.
Warmth, enthusiasm, vitality, and joy are kindled when the two of you are together, and there is great magnetism between you. SAGITTARIUS draws LEO out, evoking the more light-hearted, fun-loving side of LEO. SAGITTARIUS also keeps LEO from getting stuck in a rut, introducing new ideas and experiences that LEO enjoys. This is a mutually beneficial relationship which promises lots of good times and a very active life together.
SAGITTARIUS’s frequent indifference or obliviousness to others’ personal feelings can result in blunt comments that wound LEO’s easily hurt pride. LEO is also more loyal than SAGITTARIUS is, who tends to wander (in actuality and fantasy) more than LEO does.
While VIRGO tends to focus on the trees, SAGITTARIUS is interested in the forest. Very often VIRGO points out problems with specific details of any situation, while SAGITTARIUS would rather discuss the overall, general outlook rather than the practical details. These different approaches can balance each other. They are also likely to conflict with each other at times, especially when SAGITTARIUS feels that the details will take care of themselves and VIRGO should simply have more faith in the process. VIRGO can be guilty of spending so much time criticizing the details that the overall goal of an otherwise excellent plan is missed. SAGITTARIUS, on the other hand, may need VIRGO’s detailed analysis but not be willing to admit it.
Positively, you can work together with SAGITTARIUS providing a great deal of vision and enterprise, and VIRGO providing a great deal of practical advice, expertise, and skill. However, it is inevitable that SAGITTARIUS will feel annoyed with VIRGO’s pettiness and criticism at times, and VIRGO will feel frustrated by SAGITTARIUS’s sloppiness of thought or behavior. Much humor, tolerance, and awareness of your legitimate differences will be needed to work these problems through.
Both of you are outgoing, friendly people. You enjoy socializing and you enjoy each other’s company immensely. Very often SAGITTARIUS provides extra “zing” to the relationship with lots of grandiose ideas, dreams, visions, and restless wanderlust. LIBRA helps provide a more balanced, sensible perspective while usually being sympathetic to SAGITTARIUS as well. However, sometimes your joint activities may fail to be fruitful. LIBRA is often prone to go along with people even when there are lots of doubts. SAGITTARIUS may enthusiastically talk LIBRA into ventures that LIBRA should have the sense to question rather than meekly accept. Overall, though, this is likely to be a most enjoyable relationship.
You are different in many ways: very often, SAGITTARIUS feels lighthearted and enthusiastic about some idea, project, plan or dream, and feels that SCORPIO is too myopic and stubborn to appreciate optimistic plans. Also, SAGITTARIUS loves festivities and socializing while SCORPIO often feels uncomfortable with large groups of people, and prefers a deeper, more intimate involvement with just a few people rather than carousing with a large group. SCORPIO is capable of tremendous concentrated and persistent effort whereas SAGITTARIUS prefers to do a little bit of everything: traveling and developing a wide sphere of interests and activities, rather than being limited to a few activities.
Also, SCORPIO’s feelings usually run much deeper than SAGITTARIUS’s feelings, so SAGITTARIUS frequently fails to appreciate the depth of feeling that SCORPIO experiences. SCORPIO becomes very attached, emotionally, to a love partner and doesn’t easily share SAGITTARIUS’s attention and affection with anyone else. SAGITTARIUS, on the other hand, is something of a flirt and may innocently arouse intense jealousy in SCORPIO. SAGITTARIUS can be weighted down by SCORPIO’s suspiciousness, demands for loyalty and wholehearted involvement. Worse, SAGITTARIUS may simply ignore SCORPIO’s needs and not realize how strongly SCORPIO feels.
SAGITTARIUS has a much greater need for freedom. The two of you are so different that it will take a lot of compassion and understanding for you to be together for any length of time.
There is great camaraderie between you. A love of traveling and a restless wanderlust are traits that you have in common. Both of you are optimists and you love to shoot for the stars. Minor details annoy you and pettiness is abhorrent to you. You have a youthful enthusiasm, and have a spirited, progressive outlook on life. With so much in common, you are able to have a wonderful time together. Neither one of you takes life too seriously, so you can count on having a lively relationship with lots of variety, new adventure, and play. Both of you are also rather philosophical and if you develop different philosophical or religious viewpoints, you may find it difficult to feel really close to each other! Also, both of you are often blunt and lacking in subtlety and often oblivious or indifferent to others’ personal feelings, but fortunately neither of you is insulted very easily. Overall, you are very well-matched in terms of temperaments and interests. You will be good pals if nothing else, and friendship is something you both prize as much as romance.
Work versus play, or Optimism and faith versus Realism and doubt are likely to be issues in this relationship, with SAGITTARIUS being the playful, optimistic one, and CAPRICORN being the realist. Many times SAGITTARIUS will be in the mood for socializing, traveling, or engaging in some form of entertainment, while CAPRICORN feels that there are responsibilities that should be taken care of first. At such times CAPRICORN feels that SAGITTARIUS is too irresponsible, inconsiderate, and immature, while SAGITTARIUS feels that CAPRICORN is boring and dull.
SAGITTARIUS is also prone to fits of optimism and is inclined to gamble and speculate, whereas CAPRICORN prefers a well thought out, clear, practical plan. Also, CAPRICORN is inclined to be serious toward relationships and wants a secure, committed relationship, while SAGITTARIUS wants more space and freedom.
If your dissimilarities are not too extreme, you can complement each other rather than frustrate each other, with SAGITTARIUS providing the energy and vision, and CAPRICORN providing the steady hand and practical applications.
Outgoing and progressive, both of you enjoy busy life styles that keep you on the go. Both of you enjoy meeting new people, traveling, and keeping up with current events; even in later life both of you will stay abreast of current trends in fashion, music, arts, literature, science, and politics. SAGITTARIUS tends to be a bit more philosophical than AQUARIUS, and likes to have a sense of mission and purpose, and is sometimes prone to grandiose visions and exaggerated hopes. Neither of you is particularly sentimental and your relationship may be very friendly but somewhat detached; fortunately this is not likely to be viewed as a problem by either of you. You both are independent; with this partner you can have the space and freedom you need. Overall, your temperaments and interests are a bit different but blend well and this should be an enjoyable, interesting relationship.
Both of you have a strong imagination and must have a Dream to live for – the daily round of mundane existence would be too dull without it for either of you. Idealistic and romantic at heart, you sympathize with one another’s hopes and dreams and what other people might call impractical fantasies. Both of you are essentially generous souls, you dislike pettiness, and you also dislike limitations (such as budgets, diets, schedules, etc.).
There are many differences between you, though. PISCES is receptive and somewhat passive compared to SAGITTARIUS, who has a lot of restless energy and more of a need to be physically active. Since SAGITTARIUS’s energy level is usually higher than PISCES’s is, SAGITTARIUS can become impatient with PISCES’s more relaxed pace.
SAGITTARIUS is very straightforward, while PISCES is more subtle and often evasive. Also, PISCES is very sensitive and would never make some of the blunt statements that SAGITTARIUS makes. SAGITTARIUS frequently wounds PISCES this way, quite unintentionally.
