When Sagittarius and Pisces come together for love or any kind of relationship, it’s fantasy-fueled with dream-come-true potential! These two indecisive signs can struggle to commit, but also have a tendency to depend too heavily on each other which can lead to frustration. A Sagittarius-Pisces relationship is creative, cerebral and romantic, since you both understand each other’s philosophical and high-minded ways.
Sagittarius and Pisces: Your compatibility clicks and clashes
Where you click:
Slip on the rose-colored glasses. When the idealistic Archer meets the dreamy Fish, you quickly replace reality with fantasy. Midnight bike rides, costume parties, spontaneous road trips…you’re both ready for an adventure at a moment’s notice. This is a “tune in, turn on, drop out” kinda combo, which is fine if you’re independently wealthy or enjoying a vacation fling together. In the real world, the two of you may struggle to stay afloat or ever build a solid foundation to house your blazing attraction. If one of you is willing to plant a foot on solid ground, this can be a dream-come-true romance for both of you. Creative Pisces becomes an inspiring muse for Sagittarius, teaching the Archer to slow down and develop ideas with deeper meaning. Entrepreneurial Sag encourages Pisces to put a price tag on your talented offerings instead of playing the sacrificial martyr role at work.
Where you clash:
Getting to “I do” can be an exercise in frustration as you both swing between co-dependence and commitment-phobia like a high-speed pendulum. It’s likely you’ll just elope to Vegas one day or find yourselves in a common law marriage after ten years of cohabitation and the kids you had “accidentally” while you were getting it on in the DJ booth at a club in Buenos Aires, Barcelona, or Bali.
Sagittarius is fire and Pisces is water
Too close for comfort? As an astrology love match, fire and water signs can have wildly different needs. To succeed as a couple, compromise is essential. Water signs are soothing and nurturing, prone to fluctuating moods. They deeply crave security and comfort. By contrast, Fire signs can be aggressive, independent and often seek discomfort in the name of adventure. While water signs are nostalgic and tend to live in the rosy-hued (or overly maligned) past, fire signs are pioneers who get most excited about sculpting a future of their own creation.
To succeed as a couple, compromise is essential.
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. So, how can the traditionalist water sign and the risk-taking fire sign happily coexist? The fire sign will have to enter the water sign’s world of family visits, downtime at home, returning to the same vacation spots and hanging with a small crew of lifelong friends…even if that feels limiting or stagnant. In return, the water sign will have to embrace adventure, travel, meeting new people (and being social when they do!), risk and changing up their comfortable routines from time to time. Parents can be a big sticking point, as the water sign partner is often dutifully close to theirs while the fire sign may have left home at 18 and never looked back. In nature, water can put out a fire, which can either control a raging wildfire (good) or douse a vibrant flame (not so good). Fire can warm up cold water, but it can also make it boiling and steaming mad! Too much fire can even cause water to evaporate, just as an overly dominant fire sign can cause the less aggressive water sign to “disappear” in the relationship.
Sagittarius and Pisces 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 un-grounded 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.
Sagittarius is yang and Pisces is yin
In astrology, every sign has a “polarity”: you’re either yin (feminine) or yang (masculine). In your sign match, Pisces is a receptive yin sign and Sagittarius 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.
Sagittarius and Pisces 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.
