Personality Traits of Scorpio

Scorpio is a very determined sign. In fact, they will hold a grudge for as long as they have to. They are very obsessive, possessive, and tend to get jealous at times. If someone upsets them, they won’t forget it–they hold lifelong grudges. If they choose to keep you in their life, there will always be a part of them that resents you for putting them through some pain in the past.

Scorpio has a tendency to flirt with everyone who walks into the room, but they aren’t going to settle down until they find someone special. In the meantime, they are going to act secretive and mysterious. They won’t reveal too much about their personal lives. They won’t allow anyone to get too close to them. They will keep their guard up because they are secretly terrified of getting heartbroken. If you want to stay on the good side of a Scorpio, you can’t even think about betraying them. Their trust in you will go right out the window the second you screw up.

The Scorpio man will be just as strong and determined as he is energetic and passionate. When it comes to love and romance, he would rather be in a committed relationship than go on a bunch of dates. He will also be quick to notice if you’re trying to play games with him, so just don’t even bother. The Scorpio woman is just as passionate. She is confident, flirtatious, and sometimes demanding. However, she won’t give her heart away to just anyone. She also doesn’t like to be played (or play others), and won’t be down for a chase.

Scorpio: 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 Scorpio, you are sometimes a bit of a mystery when it comes to your feelings. It’s not that you’re emotionless, but that it’s in your nature to be secretive about those emotions. You also tend to go through mood swings! You can be highly possessive and jealous when it comes to love, and if your partner upsets you, you just might hold a grudge against them.

If your Venus sign is in Scorpio, you can be quite intense when it comes to love or sexual endeavors. You are slowly seductive and also very cautious–you need to observe a potential partner or a situation before diving in headfirst. You’re highly intuitive, so this works for you.

If your rising sign is in Scorpio, people often see different sides to you: cool and flirty, and also mysterious, moody, and closed off. However, once people get to know you, they will see that you are fiercely loyal and fun. There’s a light inside you people just can’t stray away from.

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. They are symbolized by 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. They love being around other people. As fire signs usually are, 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. A Sagittarius has a huge ego that can easily be bruised, too. They are overly confident — sometimes verging on narcissistic — they believe they are always right. Sagittarius cannot stand it when someone dares to speak up against them. Since they don’t have a filter, they are capable of saying some truly hurtful things in order to win an argument. 

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.

Scorpio and Sagittarius Compatibility: Friendship

Scorpio and Sagittarius are quite compatible as friends, both having the same approach to life. This water and fire combination might be rocky at first but will get better as it develops over time. Sometimes Scorpio will be a bit too stubborn for Sagittarius’ liking, and Sagittarius might be a little too argumentative for Scorpio’s liking. When or if fighting happens, they will need to compromise: Scorpio will need to tone down their emotions and loosen up and Sagittarius will need to learn respect and understanding.

Despite Scorpio and Sagittarius’ major personality differences, they have a connection when it comes to intellectual conversations. They also share a mutual passion for the search for truth in life. In fact, they are always up for an adventure. They will want to explore the world, in search of new things, ideas, and people. In fact, you could say that Scorpio and Sagittarius are partners in crime. However, they still might react to their adventures differently: Scorpio will have an intense desire to establish an emotional connection with the places they visit and the people they meet, while Sagittarius will just want variety and to create and maintain a surface level, physical connection.

Scorpio and Sagittarius Compatibility: Sex and Love

At first, Scorpio and Sagittarius will feel an instant attraction to one another. With their elements–fire and water–things will get intense quickly. They will find that they are quite confident with each other, especially with sexual acts. Scorpio and Sagittarius love a good adventure, and both will be in search of some excitement and trying new things in the bedroom. However, their physical connection won’t keep the intimacy aspect relationship strong forever–it simply won’t be enough. Scorpio and Sagittarius will need to talk about their feelings, which is something both signs just won’t do. Communication might lack in the relationship, despite them both being good at communicating. As for trust? Well, that’s impossible with these two.

While Sagittarius will be enchanted by the mystery and charm of Scorpio, they will get quickly frustrated with their refusal to adapt to certain situations. Scorpio will enjoy Sagittarius’ optimism and enthusiasm for life, but won’t like that they avoid commitment in relationships. With these drastic differences, they will simply just end up hurting one another. If they want this relationship to work, they need to have better communication. They also should try to develop a mutual understanding for one another.

Scorpio and Sagittarius: Relationship Compatibility

Scorpio man + Sagittarius woman:

Scorpio and Sagittarius will be very attracted to one another at first, like hot, steamy water. However, the flaws in this Sagittarius Scorpio relationship all come down to trust. If Sagittarius wants to win the trust of their Scorpio partner, they will need to tap into their emotions more. If Scorpio wants to win the heart o their Sagittarius partner, they will need to learn how to be less clingy and try to tap into their partners’ easy-going nature.

Scorpio woman + Sagittarius man: 

Like any relationship, there will be some ups and downs. The only way Sagittarius and Scorpio can find peace with one another is by compromise and communication. However, Sagittarius’ communication skills are weak and Scorpio is very stubborn. This will be a relationship that is intense and full of misunderstandings. These two should not rely on sex to keep the relationship going. Just talk about your feelings.

Scorpio man + Sagittarius man

This Scorpio and Sagittarius match will start off strong and can continue to be strong as long as they work at it and compromise when they need to. Scorpio is the type to create problems even if there are none, so Sagittarius will not only need to learn how to respond to this properly but also will need to not break away when things get tough. Scorpio will also need to be patient with their free-flowing partner and talk about what’s bothering them.

Sagittarius woman + Scorpio woman

Sagittarius wins the heart of Scorpio by being honest and without a hidden agenda and Scorpio wins the heart of Sagittarius by being their partner in crime on adventures. The downside of this Scorpio and Sagittarius relationship is that the scorpion can be a bit smothering, while the archer is the type to break away from a relationship when they’re either bored or just feeling too much love from someone. If they want this to work, they will need to communicate and not rely on sex to fix their problems.
