How To Get Along - Sagittarius and Aquarius
The Archer and The Water Bearer
This series on AstroCompatibility will cover all of the potential matchups in the Zodiac. We will continue this series thinking about and commenting on Sagittarius and Aquarius.
Sagittarius - Aquarius
Aquarius is Air and Fixed. Sagittarius is Fire and Mutable. Duality is the Centaur’s main feature: half horse, half man. This holds them in good stead in the rough and tumble world. They are doubters, and they are believers. This contradiction goes with their duality, and it also gives them a kind of armor to take into the daily fray. Aquarius is armed with its sense of itself and its grand visions. Since they have met each other, they are attracted. They both find each other appealing. How these two personalities of Air and Fire blend and work their relationship will determine its strength in the long term.
Aquarius, with its airy nature, spending time being captured by its own intuitions, does not have the same view of itself that other more “mortal” signs do. I know an Aquarian who always talks about how he has transcended his ego. I tell him that that is his ego talking. He laughs and does not take offense and goes on. There is something to be said there: Their feelings cannot be “hurt” in the same way as most. They can be offended, a lot. But hurts don’t descend as deeply into them. They are more pain free than others. I say this because Sagittarius, with its boisterous kind of bigger than everyone else style punishes those around them with their whimsical observations that put others in states of consternation and offense and frustration. Aquarius can stand to be around the Archer and not be affected by the moods that being with the Archer sometimes creates.
Together they bring some commonalities. As they walk into a room together, they are the team that cares. Humanistic and generous, both of these signs can agree to engage in activities that many other couples (partnerships, duos, lovers, mates) would not do. They love other people in general. Parties are sacred things where souls get together. Church, picnics, sporting events and fraternal organizations are all places where the two of these could be found together. Shaking hands, trading business cards, talking about the newest, the “not yet” and the “used to be”, both of these really do constitute a team. These two can make a pretty startling and impressive image together.
Positive Postulate: Positively they would be thought of as a high profile pair. They both like being “high profile”, so this is great. The Water Bearer would feel a little more like it was a part of the scene with Sagittarius. Sagittarius would feel an elevation. Being with an “all ideas, all the time” kind of intellect, the Archer could like the luster it gives them. Not that the Sagittarian is not smart, but often they can come off like they are a little scatter brained, whereas Aquarius comes off as a little eccentric. Maybe a small distinction, but one that the Archer would probably like.
Romance Recommendation: Sagittarius and Aquarius are a romantic partnership that would be considered both heart based and head driven. The always expressive Archer is a high energy life loving partner. The Water Bearer's look at romance is decidedly unique and the two would want to share values and priorities in this regard.
Conflict Quotient: Aquarius can find conflict especially with those who do not understand them. They can be viewed as being controversial and disputatious, when they are just being themselves. Sagittarius would know this and leave room for the individual to express its freedom. Sagittarius however, could, in its own special fashion cause offense, also just be using their familiar style. Aquarius could take umbrage, even get outraged, but the two, after a time would get used to each other’s difficult manner and abide it, as they grew.
Peace Parlay: Life in the end is repetitive and mundane, and so is Romance itself. This factor asks the question: "Can we be bored together over the long term?". Sagittarius with its being able to bound out of bed, no matter what they did the night before, would probably have moments or days of exhaustion. Aquarius could be aware of this and take a mental break and join with their buddy, partner, lover, in a quiet and serene repast that could provide healing.
Keep Up The Interest Graph: Drawn down from some Uranian dream, the Aquarian could come up with some new way of understanding the now, and lend some new idea that thrills their partner. Sagittarius, responding with the upbeat curiosity that is always with them, could also produce new ideas and accept others’ fanciful impulses.
Seven Year Itchiness: There are some signs that by their nature are more stable in their love interests and family concerns as time goes on. Others are not. Because these two both live on the edge of new possibility almost all the time, temptations would be out there on a continual basis. However, the way that they would treasure their unique company would hopefully prevent the 7 year, or any other year, problem. Tending to each of the minds and hearts of these two would be their major priority.
ASTROCOMPATIBILITY POSSIBILITY RATING: 65% Positive Long Term - 60% Short Term. A chance meeting of these two would lead to a shockingly good time. Then after the short term, they would want to see the value in each other and also the opposing qualities from which each could benefit.
"Duality" can be Inherently Confusing, But Still Avantageous

turlyheart, I am sorry I do not understand your comment.

how can we do it if all dis sign did not fasilitate in any aquarians body?
Sage on August 14, 2010:
I also think the conflict may come with Sagittarians impulsive and ofetn emotional responses to offense whereaa the Aquarian avoids excess displays of emotion.
With my Aquarian friend I get irritated when he is impassive, even indifferent to what I say.Sometimes my fiery nature can be too much for him and I think this is where I realize that we are on two differing elements.
