If you’re looking for a free-spirited partner who will push you out of your comfort zone and take you on wild adventures you will never forget, look no further.
When it comes to the larger-than-life Sagittarius, it’s not hard to fall in love with them as soon as you meet them. With their strong opinions, spontaneous nature, and charismatic energy, they’re sure to bring a lot of spark and excitement to any relationship.
But, as with every other sign in the zodiac, Sagittarius’ have their flaws which, when paired with the wrong sign, can spell heartbreak and disaster. In this article, we delve into the soul of the winged Archer, and analyse their compatibility status with the fellow eleven signs.
Sagittarius personality traits
Sagittarius’ are born between 22nd November and 21st December, and are a mutable fire sign, ruled by the giant gas planet Jupiter. Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, makes Sagittarius a lucky sign, always landing on their feet no matter how risky the jump.
They are full of energy, laughter, and confidence, with a magnetic quality that draws people to them, and often makes them the centre of attention. Their lack of a ‘social filter’ can sometimes make others perceive them as rude or confrontational, but a Sagittarius is a spontaneous soul who always speaks their mind, especially in situations where others won’t.
This same unbridled quality also makes them an exciting opponent in an intellectual debate. Sagittarius’ are of the Ninth House of Adventure and Learning, a house concerned with intellect and philosophical thought, as well as the need for new experiences and risk-taking. In conversation, they are stimulated most by high-minded conversations about topics such as politics, religion, culture, and ethics - they can only tolerate so much small talk.
They love to feel free, in the truest sense of the word, and push back against constraints, rules, and schedules, instead letting their impulses move them through the world.
However, on the reverse side of this quality, Sagittarius’ are notorious for the seeming inability to commit to relationships, for fear of being tied down and having to compromise for a partner's needs. This being said, with the right match, Sagittarius can be incredibly loving, affectionate, and loyal - long-term.
So, which of the eleven signs are the best zodiac signs for a Sagittarius?
Aries and Sagittarius - Most Compatible
A pairing between an Aries and Sagittarius is a match made in the heavens. Aries, born between 21st March and 19th April, is a fellow fire sign full of passion, motivation, and ambition.
Just like the Ram who represents their sign, the straightforward, confident, and direct Aries leads with their head, diving head-first into unforeseen situations and complex topics of conversation. This is perfect for cerebral, unfiltered Sagittarius, who also revels in discussing tough questions, and shares a similar logical approach to emotional matters.
Both are proactive, driven signs, but may encounter problems if their motivations draw them in separate directions. However, with both signs naturally inclined to speak their minds openly, any hurdle can be overcome.
Leo and Sagittarius - Completely Compatible
If there’s one thing that’s immediately noticeable about a Leo, it’s that they shine. Together, a Sagittarius and Leo can build a creative, passionate, adventurous world, and light it up with their joyful, youthful energy.
Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac, a fixed fire sign, and a natural, symbiotic match for the mutable fire sign Sagittarius. They’re known for their innate creativity, and colourful, vibrant way of moving through life, attributes which are sure to capture the admiration of the curious Sagittarius. Although Sag’s are known for being a little flighty when it comes to commitment, the creative Leo can build a solid relationship that is fixed but always feels new, fresh and exciting.
Together this pairing can live and love brightly, adding to each other’s light, and taking on the world together.
Gemini and Sagittarius - Potentially Compatible
A pairing between a Gemini and Sagittarius has the potential to be divine, depending on their other chart placement. When the right individuals of these signs come together, they complement each other perfectly in a harmonious balance, they can form a full, bright, otherworldly relationship.
Both love to seek out new experiences, absorb knowledge, and explore new ideas. Plus, they’re opposing signs in the zodiac, meaning they both exude wonderful qualities that the other lacks. As the saying goes, ‘opposites attract’, however, when they meet in the middle, it’s either fireworks or utter chaos. Gemini and Sagittarius hold that same 50/50 potential - approach with caution!
The least compatible signs with Sagittarius
It’s important to know that our analysis is based on the general traits of the main sun signs of each zodiac.
To truly understand how compatible one individual will be with another, you will need to calculate the unique planetary positions of each person’s natal/birth chart. Reading natal charts is a complex and ancient practice that takes years to master, but, if you want the full scope of a potential soulmate, consulting an expert astrologer is your best bet.
Libra and Sagittarius Compatibility
When it comes to a Libra and Sag, they’re both sociable, adventurous and concerned with truth, and high-minded conversation. Libra is two signs apart from Sagittarius, and ruled by the gas giant Venus, the planet of beauty and sensuality, making for an easy-going connection.
They’re a great pairing in a platonic sense, with Sagittarius opting to be the life of the party, rather than the party planner, like Libra. But a Sag’s unfiltered, sometimes confrontational, way of communication might be enough to turn off the conflict-averse Libra.
Cancer and Sagittarius Compatitbility
Five signs apart, Cancer and Sagittarius are not an obvious match, and, usually, not very compatible either. Both signs do like to engage in conversations about their beliefs and ethics, pondering spirituality and righting the world’s wrongs.
But Sagittarius’ style of communication may not always go down well with Cancer, the unfiltered, sometimes confrontational nature of a Sag completely at odds with the more sensitive Crab.
And it’s not just their communication styles that differ. The Crab needs loyalty, consistency, dependability, and overall stability in a relationship, that, sometimes, the free-spirited, fiercely independent Archer cannot provide.
Capricorn and Sagittarius Compatibility
Sitting in the tenth sign of the zodiac, Capricorns are the cardinal earth sign. Capricorns are calm, collected, and in control - at least that’s how they’d like the world to see them. Sags, on the other hand, are full of fire, and too adventurous to ever worry about control.
In a partnership, or friendship, Sagittarius could find that a Capricorn can teach them how to behave less impulsively and more responsibly. And the Sag can help the grounded Capricorn to live in the moment, and experience life’s many wonders.
Taurus and Sagittarius Compatibility
Another earth sign, but, this time, fixed rather than cardinal, Taurus’ are typically grounded and homely. This means that, when partnered with a Sag, the two have very little in common.
Taurus could teach Sagittarius how to be more pragmatic, and a Sag could teach Taurus how to live more adventurously - providing they can overcome their differences. But, unfortunately, when it comes to love and relationships, a Taurus and Sag may never get past their differences.
Virgo and Sagittarius Compatibility
Three signs apart from Sagittarius in the zodiac, is Virgo, an earth sign ruled by the planet of communication, Mercury. Setting up a relationship between these two signs could be a little tricky, as Sag has a habit of being incredibly direct and off-the-cuff in their communication, which could come across as preachy and arrogant to the thoughtful, careful Virgo.
Virgo and Gemini are ruled by the same planet, but, where Gemini is expressionistic in their communication, Virgo is more inward, preferring to process things thoroughly before they speak and act, which a Sagittarius may not understand, and read as quite uptight and rigid.
However, if the pair can find a balance between Sag’s spontaneity and Virgo’s practicality, they might just be able to balance each other and strengthen the other’s weaknesses.
Scorpio and Sagittarius Compatibility
When it comes to fire and water, here on Earth, the two elements do not mix. And that’s usually the case in the realm of the zodiac, too. Scorpios, ruled by Mars, are usually quite private, stubborn, and serious, which is quite the opposite of the sociable Sag.
The communication styles of these sun signs can both be considered intense, depending on which of the zodiac you ask, but in different ways. Sags are impulsive, whereas Scorpios might be a little more guarded, but both have the potential to be brutally frank - a recipe for butting heads.
That said, Scorpios do share Sagittarius’ love of exploring new places and experiences, so, perhaps not all is lost.
Aquarius and Sagittarius Compatibility
Aquarius’ are a fixed water sign, and the eleventh house of the zodiac. They have a strong sense of community, are concerned with collectivity and humanity, and are known for speaking out against injustice. This could be an ideal match for the philosophical Sag, who loves absorbing knowledge, delving into difficult topics, and always seeking truth.
They both love to lead unconventional lives, full of free-spirited adventure into other cultures and experiences. However, the only problem may be that Aquarius, have very strong opinions and, once they’ve made their mind up about something, they’re rarely swayed. This might pose difficulties for the pairing, as a Sag is usually open-minded, and could get frustrated by Aquarius’ stubbornness.
Pisces and Sagittarius Compatibility
Pisces, the very last of the 12 zodiac signs, is a mutable water sign, ruled by the planet of Neptune, the celestial body that governs all things creative and dreamy. The problems with this pairing arise from the clash of Pisces’ very sensitive, sometimes neurotic, nature, and Sag’s blunt and rational approach to love, friendships, and life itself.
Pisces is an incredibly empathetic and impressionable sign, which may come across to Sagittarius as dramatic and frustrating. Whereas the Archer’s cerebral, sometimes unsympathetic way of viewing emotional matters, can strike the sensitive Pisces as mean and unfeeling - two traits that the delicate Fish cannot stand.
Sagittarius and Sagittarius Compatibility
At this stage, we know a lot about Sag’s adventurous, wild, celebratory approach to life. Put two of them together, and you can guarantee a lot of fun, spontaneity, and high-minded conversations. But it’s their mutual flighty nature that could spell disaster for two Sags in love, and, if neither of them can provide a grounded voice of reason, their impulsivity has the potential to pull them in opposite directions.
Take a chance on love
Whether you’re an Aries galloping after the affections of a wild Sagittarius, or a shy Fish, admiring the larger-than-life Archer from afar, you’ll only know your true compatibility with your love interest when you understand both natal charts.
