Sagittarius Love Match
When the ruler of a particular sign is a big, imposing planet, as is the case with Sagittarius, it is obvious that they are positioned for big things. Since Jupiter, the largest of all the planets, is the planetary ruler of Sagittarius the most conspicuous quality that they will possess is “bigness”. It may sound silly but it truth this characteristic can be profoundly manifested in lots of aspects of your Sagittarian lover. Big Hearts, Big Heads, Big Games, Big Contradictions, these are all parts of the expansive nature of all the Sagittarians in our life. They dream in Technicolor and play on super sized jungle gym, and though they are sometimes unaware of the respect and loyalty that they command, we all know it and we can see it throughout our relationships with them.
You know why you feel for that Sagittarian in the first place. His/her head was being split open with new ideas and the size of their heart opened up wide and welcomed you into their world. There were no reservations about letting you in, and for the first time in a long time you felt like you belonged. There were no plastic coverings over the couches, so to speak, and nothing was hidden. That is one of the gifts of your Sagittarian lover, they are not secretive nor are they possessive. But they are extreme, so make sure that you take that into account when trying to handle them.
Sagittarius’ life lies between two primary bed rocks: Athleticism and intellectualism. The first means that rock climbing, going for hikes and generally engaging the more physical aspects of life may be the driving force behind your Sagittarius’ vision of the world, the second means that that long talks over wine, about philosophy and religion direct the interest of this more cerebral Sagittarius.
If you have a Sagittarius in your life it may be important to note which of the bed rocks your friend/lover stands more securely on. If they are of the intellectual persuasion their logical (Jupiter) nature will make them a formidable foe to argue against. Their arguments are usually well informed and beautifully constructed. Let them talk and if you disagree, wait till you see holes in their argument since a logical flaw will be most likely to induce reevaluation of their point of view. With the sportsman out there, just avoid physical competition. If they lose whatever game is being played they will hate it because they are perhaps a bit too competitive. They are usually the dirtiest, and most beat up at the end of whatever they are doing. Encourage, as their friend/lover, less result oriented physical endeavors.
Sagittarians are insecure and can be frustrated easily with details, social conventions and the general niceties of day-to-day existence. This means that your lover may tend to hide behind a penchant for debate, concealing their fears and lack of grace behind a fa ade of verbal warfare. This can be tempered by good life experience that teaches them to be proud of who they are, or the natural loudness and intensity of personality can ostracize them from more conventional social scenes.
Long lasting relationships can be difficult because it is hard for them to settle down and stay interested. Your Sagittarian lover may not return phone calls and often breaks dates. His/her impetuosity often leads to a inability to satisfy the more domestic needs of other people, and despite lots of opportunity for physical intimacy, relationships of a more permanent variety may have to wait until middle age, when the “great mellowing” occurs.
Best Match for Sagittarius
As a star sign ruled by the element of Fire, your safest bet, Sagittarius, is probably one of the other two Fire signs, i.e. ARIES or LEO. The favorable 120° – or 4 signs – spacing between Zodiac signs in the same element makes for an especially harmonious relationship and a level of compatibility well above the norm.
Both Aries and Leo are good compatibility matches for Sagittarius since they share Sagittarius’s passion, enthusiasm and gloriously upbeat outlook on life. However, Aries probably just beats Leo as the better compatibility choice for Sagittarius. Because Aries values its own freedom so highly, it finds it relatively easier to handle Sagittarius’s strongly independent streak.
Really excellent too, in terms of their ability to harmonize with fiery Sagittarius, while at the same time helping it to look at things more objectively, are the logical Air signs LIBRA and AQUARIUS, spaced by 60° – or next but one – from Sagittarius. Many believe this kind of Fire-Air combination is actually the ideal – and surely it’s no coincidence that a high proportion of successful compatibility matches are between people with birthdays two Zodiac signs apart.
So what about another SAGITTARIUS as a good compatibility match? On the plus side, you’ll definitely know what makes them tick, since they embody so many aspects of yourself. Especially with a Sagittarius of the opposite sex, the chances are you’ll be strongly attracted to their best Sagittarian qualities – like their positivity, honesty and incredible sense of humor. But because we don’t tend to like our bad points when we see them reflected in somebody else, there will also be things about Sagittarius people that you’ll positively hate – most likely their restlessness and blunt outspokenness! If so, better take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror!
Worst Match for Sagittarius
The truth is, Sagittarius, your ideal compatibility match will rarely simply be a clone of yourself (how boring would that be!). But neither, for that matter, should their star sign be too astrologically antagonistic to your own.
For this reason, you should be cautious – in the absence of redeeming features – about folk born under the star sign of VIRGO. Because Virgo is at a challenging 90° angle (or 3 sign spacing) from Sagittarius, the differences between you may be so vast, the chances are these people will be too incompatible with you – and just too much hard work!
Of all the star signs, Virgo probably qualifies as the worst possible compatibility match for Sagittarius. Due to its extreme diligence and conscientiousness, Virgos may find it harder than just about anyone else to cope with Sagittarius’s happy-go-lucky, maverick lifestyle.
There may also be lesser compatibility challenges with the signs spaced at 150° (or 5 signs) from Sagittarius, i.e. TAURUS and CANCER. Traditionally considered to be ‘awkward’, and involving signs in conflicting elements, these 150° relationships probably won’t be your first choice, but then neither should they be your last. So don’t make the mistake of writing them off as unsuitable – in some cases a love match could work out fine!
Why Opposites Attract
Rather than someone who conflicts with you, Sagittarius, what you’re really looking for, from a star sign compatibility point of view, is the kind of person who is able to balance or complement you in some way. For this reason, the sign diametrically opposite your own, i.e. GEMINI, can be a great compatibility match for you, Sagittarius. Opposite star signs are often magnetically attracted to each other, their strong yin-yang polarity giving them the potential to complete each other like two halves of a perfect whole.
