Sagittarius and Aquarius: Your compatibility clicks and clashes

Where you click:
A bohemian rhapsody that may only last for a few seasons. You’re gregarious, inventive party people who are also guided by a higher purpose. Sagittarius is the philosopher, Aquarius the humanitarian, and you both prize freedom more than life itself. This makes it inexplicably easy to be around each other…and ease is what you both want from life. Like a modern-day version of 1960s beatniks, you’ll tour the country in a tricked out Airstream trailer (upgraded to run on vegetable fuel), adding friend after friend to your Facebook pages from every town you stop in. You’re insta-BFFs, and the sidesplitting humor stirred up by you two jokesters is worthy of a Comedy Central special.

Where you clash:
Although there’s a strong idealistic chemistry that flows between you, translating that to the physical realm can be somewhat awkward. Kissing cousins ARE legal in some states, but is that honestly a sexy proposition? Think carefully before you go there. Adding benefits to this friendship can destroy the connection in many cases. Talk through your long-range fantasies first. Although impatient Sag pushes for a commitment, Aquarius tends to want more structure from a life partnership. Plus, neither one of you wants to sacrifice your dreams—a shared goal is essential if this is to work over time. Should you decide to raise goats on an organic farm, or start a motivational speaking company together, go ahead and hop into the sack, because bliss is yours for the taking!

Love and compatibility by element

Sagittarius is fire and Aquarius is air

Let the good times roll! Fire and air signs have a lot of similarities—both are adventurous, expressive and full of grand schemes and plans. In this astrology love match there should be no shortage of fun dates and plans. You’re both game to try anything once! Beyond being lovers, you are also simpatico friends who “get” each other in many ways. In fact, this relationship may develop organically from a platonic bond that develops first. In some cases, it may cool down to a more buddy or sibling vibe after the honeymoon period ends, as both fire and air signs are excited by novelty and grow bored when things become too familiar. This may not be the most sensual match in the bedroom, but the lively conversations, hilarious jokes and spontaneous adventures you share can keep you satisfied in other ways.

In this astrology love match there should be no shortage of fun dates and plans. You’re both game to try anything once!

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. The key difference between your elements is that air signs tend to be more cool, detached and cerebral, while fire signs are more impulsive, emotional and expressive. In essence, air signs are more “head” while fire signs are more “heart.” When a disagreement erupts, the air sign will want to discuss it objectively, which can seem cold and uncaring to the worked-up and reactive fire sign partner, who may talk in circles or get defensive, frustrating the solution-oriented air sign. At times, the fire sign may feel exhausting—too much energy! And when the air sign gets stuck in analysis paralysis, the fire sign will lose patience. (“Just do something already!” says fire.) In nature, air can feed a fire, helping it spread—just as an air sign partner fans the flames of the fire sign’s passion. Fire heats up the chilly air, and fire signs help air signs warm up and take chances. But another fire-air scenario is blowing out a match—one gust of wind from the wrong direction and the flame goes out. divider-graylove and compatibility by quality or triplicity

Sagittarius is mutable and Aquarius is fixed

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 this love match, it can be hard to get in sync. Can we make a plan around here? Fixed signs crave stability and mutable signs love change. Compromise is key so you don’t drive each other crazy! The fixed sign in this relationship likes to make a decision or plan and stick with it. By contrast, the ever-changing mutable sign is always changing things—adding one more guest, jamming one more coffee date into their day, starting another project before they finish the 50 they already have going. When a mutable-fixed duo plays to their strength, the fixed sign can create a solid structure that upholds the mutable sign’s creative plans. Adaptable mutable signs help the fixed sign to be less rigid—to loosen up and go with the flow. For long-term success, the mutable mate will have to work harder at keeping their word, showing up on time and being consistent. Some plans are simply non-negotiable! In exchange the fixed sign will have to give an inch and be willing to try new things.



divider-graylove and compatibility by polarity

Sagittarius and Aquarius are both yang, or masculine, signs

In astrology, every sign has a “polarity”: you’re either yin (feminine) or yang (masculine). You are both yang signs: aggressive, action-oriented and driven. In this astrology love match, you can motivate each other…or you can find yourself in a power struggle. Two yang signs must be careful not to bulldoze or tread on each other’s turf. Sharing the power and taking turns having the upper hand will be the key to your happiness.

divider-graylove and compatibility: your aspects

Sagittarius and Aquarius are sextile (two signs apart)

In astrology love matches, we also measure compatibility by the aspect, or distance, between the two signs. Your signs are sextile, or two signs apart. It’s easy and breezy to date a person who lives two zodiac signs away. Your signs are always of a compatible “element” (for example, they’re a Water sign and you’re an Earth sign, which are both of the “feminine” quality). You’ll often have similar values and attitudes about politics, raising a family, which movies to rent. Friendship and communication are the hallmarks of this aspect. Being best friends is easy. Keeping the sexy spark alive? A little challenging. You’ll need to structure “date nights” or set up scenarios that get you out of buddy mode.
