Pisces and Sagittarius: Friendship, Sex, and Love Compatibility

What kind of love match are Pisces and Sagittarius? Can this intense fire sign and emotional water sign settle their differences, compromise, and make a relationship work? Or is this pairing something to be avoided at all costs?

Pisces and Sagittarius Compatibility


The Pisces Zodiac

Pisces are believed to be ruled by two planets of our Solar System: Neptune and Jupiter. Neptune is the god of the sea and the ruler of deep emotions, and Jupiter is the planet of intuition and philosophy. Pisces are symbolized by two fish swimming in unison, which could represent both the two ruling planets and for them being a water sign. The fish can be based on the Greek mythological story of a fish who saved the god and goddess of love, Aphrodite and Eros, from a sea monster.

As a water sign, Pisces is empathetic, compassionate, and very much in tune with their emotions. They tend to lead with the heart over their head. As a mutable sign, Pisces will adjust their feelings to fit the needs of whomever they’re surrounded by. They won’t be inconsiderate of others’ feelings.

Personality Traits of Pisces

Pisces is very intuitive, empathetic, and dreamy. They will put others’ needs before their own and this can be, at times, to a fault. However, their generosity and selflessness do not go unlooked or unloved. They are very friendly and if their lover needs a shoulder to cry on, they will be there to comfort them…and probably cry too.

A Pisces man lives to please others. He puts others’ needs and happiness before his own because he wants to be helpful and save the day in any way he can. He tends to bottle up his emotions and battle them internally. A Pisces woman is very kind and compassionate and can even be perceived as naive or vulnerable because she’s so trusting of others. However, if you break her trust, she will hold a grudge against you.

Pisces: Moon, Rising, and Venus Signs

In astrology, every person has a sign in the moon, rising, and Venus placements of their zodiac chart. Your moon represents your inner self, your rising is how people see you when they first meet you, and Venus represents love and beauty. 

If your moon sign is in Pisces, you are very empathetic and sensitive. This can be admirable at times, but harsh for your heart too. You are quite vulnerable to the harsh realities of life, just because you’re so trusting and generous.

If your Venus sign is in Pisces, you are very charming, romantic, and playful. You are selfless and will sacrifice things for your loved ones. It doesn’t matter if the timing is inconvenient or if you have to sacrifice your own happiness in the process, you will be reliable, consistent, and compassionate.

If your rising sign is in Pisces, you tend to get overwhelmed in social situations or being around stronger personalities. You like finding solitude and getting lost in your own daydreams. You go through life striving for creative outlets, like music, visual arts, dance, or writing.

The Sagittarius Zodiac

Every astrological sign has a planetary ruler, and Sagittarius’ is Jupiter. Jupiter is the planet of luck, fortune, truth, and philosophy. Jupiter is also the biggest planet in the Solar system, symbolizing heroic action and doing things head-on, no matter the challenges. Sagittarius is one of the zodiac signs that can be a bit too much at times, but also wholeheartedly believe in their big dreams. The Sagittarius’ symbol is a bow and arrow, or, an archer. They are very active zodiac signs, but this can sometimes show up as restlessness.

As a fire sign, Sagittarius’ has an honest and intense personality. They have an enthusiasm for life and this zodiac sign will do anything to achieve their goals, no matter how big they might be. Sagittarius is a mutable sign, which means they are adaptable and flexible, but also careless and inconsistent. Sagittarius love being around other people. They are extroverted, fun, free-spirited, and somewhat unpredictable.

Personality Traits of Sagittarius

With the fire energy, Sagittarius is intense, energetic, and extroverted. They are adventurous, rebellious (especially under authority), and want life to be unpredictable rather than planned. They are overly confident and very honest, too. It’s never a dull moment with this archer!

A Sagittarius man is courageous, cocky, and even flirty. He will always want attention and for people to feed his ego. The kind of man who enjoys his freedom and who is likely to settle down in a relationship. A Sagittarius woman is wild and independent. She will speak her mind no matter if her words could hurt someone else–and she probably won’t care, either. It won’t be easy for her to fall in love, but when she does, she wants something exciting and spontaneous.

Sagittarius: Moon, Rising, and Venus Signs

In astrology, every person has a sign in the moon, rising, and Venus placements of their zodiac chart. Your moon represents your inner self, your rising is how people see you when they first meet you, and Venus represents love and beauty. 

If your moon sign is in Sagittarius, you are always willing to try to learn new things. You trust yourself over others, and this often comes across as cocky and cold. You’re very optimistic and over-confident in your opinions and ideas. You also care deeply about your loved ones, even if you don’t always express your feelings openly.

If your Venus sign is in Sagittarius, you are a big flirt. You’re also quite cautious about settling down in a relationship, even though you’re jealous of those who are in committed relationships. To you, love should be exciting and adventurous rather than committed and “claustrophobic.” 

If your rising sign is in Sagittarius, you are the life of the party! You love meeting new people because the more friends you have, the more they can feed your ego. People see how free-spirited and optimistic you are and it can either come across as endearing or overwhelming.

Pisces and Sagittarius Compatibility: Friendship

Sagittarius and Pisces are two mutable signs of the zodiac, which could mean that they make great friends, despite the difference(s) in who they are at their core. Both Sagittarius and Pisces have an intellectual, philosophical mind, but they like to explore things differently: Sagittarius wants to be free to move from one challenge to another, while Pisces likes to explore their fantasies just a little while longer. Pisces looks towards the future while Sagittarius just looks at the big picture that’s right in front of them.

They will enjoy spending time together, especially traveling, doing some sort of physical activity, or diving into philosophy subjects. They share a need for a change of scenery (that’s the mutable quality!), and they will get along great in that aspect. However, communication — especially about how they feel — will lack. Sagittarius is a very direct sign, but are not direct with their feelings. Their sometimes harsh words could potentially hurt the sensitive Pisces.

Pisces and Sagittarius Compatibility: Sex and Love

Although Sagittarius and Pisces are two mutable signs of the zodiac, these two could not be more opposite personalities. While Pisces is sensitive and tender, Sagittarius is the type to not be concerned about how others feel. If Sagittarius and Pisces ever develop the physical side of their relationship, it will be quite fun. With Pisces’ sensuality and Sagittarius’ intense passion, they will find that they’re actually a great match in the bedroom. It’s in their nature to be interested in changing things up (positions, scenery), so sex will definitely be exciting.

There will be ups and downs with the communication in the relationship. Although they are on the same page intellectually and will have a mutable enjoyment for certain activities, they will have a really hard time talking about their feelings. Well, Sagittarius will at least — it’s like pulling teeth. Pisces might shy away from Sagittarius because Sagittarius doesn’t have the ability to talk about how they feel at all, ever.

In this relationship, trust and understanding of each other’s worlds are almost nonexistent. The reality is, unless these two are able to work through their fundamental behaviors, this pair might not really have a good chance of lasting.

Zodiac Compatibility With Pisces or Sagittarius

Zodiac Compatibility: Pisces

These water signs need to be in a relationship with someone who can share their enthusiasm for creativity, intellectual discussions, and sensuality. They want a partner who understands how they look at the world, with kindness and compassion, and who will be sensitive to their, well, sensitivity. They want someone who will be on the same level, emotionally or spiritually, or at least just be understanding of their dream-like, idealistic personality.

Zodiac Compatibility: Sagittarius

These fire signs want a partner who will understand their lack of commitment in relationships but their loyalty to a person nonetheless. They want a partner who can match their appreciation for fun and freedom. They match well with someone who appreciates and is on the same wavelength of wanting variety, experimentation (especially in the bedroom), and spontaneity.

Despite their overall differences, this Pisces and Sagittarius pair could balance each other out. Pisces is patient with and compassionate towards Sag’s dynamic form. They can also teach them how to be more gentle and soft. Sagittarius, on the other hand, is a great protector for Pisces and can teach them how to be more bold and outgoing. However, he’s looking for something long-term, and she’s looking for something casual and this might be the downfall of their relationship.

Pisces woman + Sagittarius man 

Compromise is the key to making any relationship last. Although Sagittarius and Pisces are adaptable, their different personalities could bring out the worst in each other. When it comes to the future of the relationship, he will want excitement and to be free, while she might have her head in the clouds and will look at the relationship through rose-colored glasses. If they can focus on their partners’ better qualities, then they just might make it work.

Sagittarius woman + Pisces woman 

In this kind of Pisces Sagittarius relationship, they will share a passion for making life beautiful, and this could definitely benefit them. Sagittarius will protect Pisces and Pisces will help Sagittarius become more in touch with their sensitive side and this will evidently make them gentle, stable lovers. However, there will be plenty of flaws: doubt, distrust, and inability to talk about their emotions. Trust and faith will be something they have to work on.

Sagittarius man + Pisces man 

A companionship can form very quickly in this Pisces Sagittarius pair, but it can wither just as quickly, too, especially if they cannot settle their differences. Sagittarius will enjoy their freedom a little too much and because of this, Pisces might retreat and not be as engaged in the relationship for fear of getting hurt. Unless they can talk about what’s bothering them and how they can fix their problems, this won’t really last.
