When Virgo and Sagittarius come together for love or any kind of relationship, it’s intellectually stimulating! These conversationalists find common ground over holistic health and philosophical thinking. A Virgo-Sagittarius relationship will need to make room for compromise, since you both could travel for extended periods of time.
Virgo and Sagittarius: Your compatibility clicks and clashes
Where you click:
It’s a sexy meeting of the minds when analytical Virgo pairs up with philosophical Sagittarius. The two of you can pontificate for hours about everything from world politics to your childhood issues with your fathers. Conversation is an aphrodisiac for both signs, and after another “great talk,” sultry Sagittarius quickly lures Virgo into the bedroom. You may be best off as friends-with-benefits, a status your signs can amicably uphold for years. If you do marry, there will be many compromises to make, which may even include separate residences and long-distance dating for periods of time. Natural health and global activism are common ground. Bond through meaningful adventures like running charity marathons, digging wells in Africa with cleanwater.org, and ringing in the New Year with Costa Rican yoga retreats.
Where you clash:
This match is an intellectually stimulating experience that can cool off quickly. Once between the sheets, your different styles begin to emerge. Sensual, serious Virgo is a giver in bed and may spend hours pleasuring hedonistic Sagittarius. When it’s time to return the favor, Sagittarius is already snoozing with a Cheshire Cat grin on their face. Traditional Virgo likes to take it slow; future-forward Sagittarius is forever on the go. Virgo may never feel secure in this combo while Sagittarius will feel anchored by Virgo’s need for routine, order and stability.
Virgo is earth and Sagittarius is fire
Handle with care! This astrology love match of wildly different elements can thrive as long as you play to your strengths. Grounded earth signs seek stability and want to put down roots. By contrast, adventurous fire signs long to explore, grow and spread into new terrain. A battle can erupt as one of you strives for freedom while the other craves consistency. The fire sign will feel caged in by the white picket fence fantasy, while the earth sign can never relax with constant change and surprises. But if you learn to appreciate your differences, then you can offer what the other one is missing. The worldly fire sign will have a predictable home base to return to, lovingly tended to by the earth sign partner. In exchange, the earth sign will avoid getting stuck in a stagnant rut because the fire sign will encourage growth and adaptation.
Together, you can be lifelong learners who never run out of topics to talk about.
Earth signs are sensual and practical, and impulsive fire signs can benefit from their grounded approach. In this relationship, the fire sign can learn to slow down and savor the moment, rather than rushing off to the next big thing. And the fire sign can help the earth sign take more chances in life. Think in terms of nature: dirt can smother a fire, and fire can scorch the earth. But in order to build a fire and maximize its creative powers, there must be a steady ground beneath the flames.
There are four elements in astrology: fire, earth, air and water. Each one plays an important role in the greater whole of humankind. A love match with someone from of a different astrological element can be challenging, but also a beautiful opportunity to evolve. After all, differences push you both to grow and step outside of your own experience.
Virgo and Sagittarius are both mutable signs
In astrology, the “qualities” or “triplicities” reveal the role you play in a relationship or collaboration. Are you a starter, a doer or a finisher? Do you like to take charge and have a plan, or do you prefer to go with the flow? In the case of two mutable signs, it’s non-stop variety and spontaneity. This can make life a grand adventure—one week you’re in Bali, the next you’re in Berlin—but you can also get totally ungrounded as a duo. Who’s gonna create the structure in this relationship? (Zero hands raised.) Making a decision (or even committing!) can also be difficult, since neither of you likes to be locked into anything permanent. This is the couple that’s together for decades, but never “gets around” to marrying. The idea of freedom actually serves as a binding agent between the two of you. (Case study: the mutable match of Sagittarius Brad Pitt and Gemini Angelina Jolie was a global-citizen love story until they relented to tradition and tied the knot.) Sure it’s a bit of a paradox, but that’s the way your signs like it. Mutable signs specialize in communication and discovery. Together, you can be lifelong learners who never run out of topics to talk about. On a bad day, you can be argumentative, flaky and overbooked—your own separate lives may be stuffed to the gills with too many projects, plans and friends, making it hard to find enough quality time together. Be careful not to scatter your energy and spread yourselves too thin in this love match.
Virgo is yin and Sagittarius is yang
In astrology, every sign has a “polarity”: you’re either yin (feminine) or yang (masculine). In your sign match, Virgo is a receptive yin sign and Libra is an assertive yang sign. When you play to your strengths, you balance each other out, each on contributing a different but complementary skill set. When things are off, you can become polarized. The yin sign can be too passive (or passive-aggressive) and sacrificing, while the yang sign may act domineering, aggressive and selfish. To rebalance, the yin sign needs to work on being more open, direct and confident, while the yang sign should cultivate more patience, tolerance and sensitivity.
Virgo and Sagittarius are square (three signs apart)
In astrology love matches, we also measure compatibility by the aspect, or distance, between the two signs. Your signs are square, or three signs apart. Mommy and daddy issues, anyone? The square aspect is a harsh, 90-degree angle between two signs that creates a push-pull dynamic. It’s the relationship that helps you work through issues with a difficult parent, usually by reactivating old, painful wounds. There can be power struggles and clashing agendas. Don’t expect to kick back and put your feet up in this match. The dynamic tension will keep you active and keyed up. Of course, that could be exactly what you want. The opportunity of the “square” aspect is to teach you how to compromise with an equally strong-willed partner. When you strike that delicate balance, you can make an undeniable “power couple”—a true force to be reckoned with.
