Sagittarius and Aquarius Compatibility


The Sagittarius Zodiac

Every zodiac 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 a 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 them!

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. 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.

The Aquarius Zodiac 

Aquarius has two ruling planets: Uranus and Saturn. Uranus is the only planet that spins on its side, which fits because this zodiac sign is known to be very individualistic and original. Saturn is the planet that governs our ambition, knowledge, and limits of reality, and Aquarius is known to be intelligent and ambitious and often appearing “out of this world.” 

The Aquarius symbol, and its constellation of two parallel lines, is a water bearer, representing the flow of energy, thinking, and creativity. With their fixed quality, Aquarius is an intelligent, persistent, and a natural-born leader. With an air element, an Aquarian is a free-spirit unlike any other. They are a breath of fresh air!

They come across as strange sometimes, but they just don’t care what people think about them! 

An Aquarius man is social but independent. He’s intelligent and his mind is often occupied with new ideas, so he might appear aloof and distant. He’s good at communicating and not one to rush into relationships but will let you know when he’s ready to be in one. An Aquarius woman is free-spirited and independent. She is appreciative of individuality and someone who stands out from the crowd! She’s practical and intelligent, and not so great with emotions. If you get too clingy, she might run away!

Aquarius: Moon, Rising, and Venus Signs

If your Venus sign is in Aquarius, you’re free-spirited and don’t like to settle down in a relationship. You want a lover who can challenge you intellectually and who is also your friend. When it comes to emotions, well, you’re more of a thinker than a feeler.

So, while Aquarius likes to work to the conclusion of projects, Sagittarius will shift frequently. As long as they communicate (which they both have no problem doing), they will remain strong.

While Sagittarius appreciates adventure and enjoys casual or romantic sex, Aquarius will need a unique love connection in order to feel something with sex. They like to have fun and try new things, and when it comes to intimacy, they’ll both be willing to communicate about their needs.

Zodiac Compatibility With Sagittarius or Aquarius

Zodiac Compatibility: Sagittarius 

If you’re a Sagittarius, you’ll find that you get along with an air sign, like Gemini or Libra. Gemini and Sagittarius will understand each other more than any other signs. They trust each other immensely and whether they can make a relationship work, they’ll still make great friends. With Libra, there isn’t enough trust to make sure something lasts. However, there an intense emotional intimacy, and they will feel comfortable and secure enough with each other in the bedroom.

If you’re a Sagittarius, expect that a sexual or love relationship with an earth sign, like Virgo, will be really lousy. In the bedroom, Virgo and Sagittarius might feel like sex is unbearable, and they’ll feel almost trapped. The flirty archer will have trouble connecting with the stable virgin. They will have a hard time building trust and an emotional connection with each other. Their drastically different personalities will make them impatient for a change.

Zodiac Compatibility: Aquarius

If you’re an Aquarius, you’ll for sure connect with certain signs more than others, specifically those with the fire element, like Aries or Leo. There is exciting energy between Aquarius and Aries. Despite both signs lacking emotional tenderness, they are still good at communicating and are still trusting of one another. There is a mutual admiration between Leo and Aquarius. Leo is exactly what Aquarius needs in love and Aquarius is exactly what Leo needs, in terms of flexibility and change of pace when necessary.

If you’re an Aquarius, you’ll find that it’s not a love match with water signs, like a Pisces, for example. Pisces is very emotional and possessive and will only want to have sex with the love of their life, while a free-spirited Aquarian won’t be interested in that in the slightest. With impersonal and detached Aquarius and romantic and needy Pisces, it will be very difficult for them to find common ground and understand each other’s drastically different personalities.
