Fire Meets Wind

Aquarius and Sagittarius are the last wind and fire signs of the zodiac—Sagittarius is the 9th house, and Aquarius is the 11th. Wind signs and fire signs find a certain amount of innate comfort in each other. They push each other in the right direction and inspire one another.

Sagittarius and Aquarius also get along partly because they are both in the latter half of the zodiac. Whereas the first few signs in the zodiac have a lot of bravado, aggression, and impatience, the second half of the zodiac is softer and more chill . . . and often a little more eccentric as well.

Aquarius and Sagittarius Compatibility

These signs are both freedom seekers; they are open to reality and sharply intelligent. What is nice about Sagittarius is it has natural leader qualities from being a fire sign. Aquarius will appreciate that energy, as it helps bring out Aquarius' rebellious, quirky nature. Sagittarius has a yang-like quality where Aquarius is its yin.

Aquarius will enjoy trying to unmask Sagittarius, who can wear different faces in front of others and in private. They are both charismatic personalities, and both will appreciate that they have a wide circle of friends.

Their Energies Align Harmoniously

These signs can pick up things with each other in a split second. They feed off one another in a positive way—Sagittarius stays chill and doesn't disrupt Aquarius. Sagittarius keeps a good, healthy tempo for Aquarius, who has an incredibly soulful, musical way that needs equal parts freedom and devotion. Aquarius will be a great protector for Sagittarius—a sign that is often taken advantage of (this is partly why Sagittarius tends to wear a mask).

Sagittarius' temperament is similar to Aquarius'. They both want to have fun, they both want to think, and they both are looking for a higher reality. There's a lot of flexibility and malleability. They are sensitive to each other and know how to brighten each other with tiny details.

They Balance Devotion and Independence

Sagittarius has the focus Aquarius wants—Aquarius is looking for a devoted, loyal, and respectful partner. Aquarius doesn't want someone who clings to them, who doesn't allow them to have freedom or accuses and judges them.

This is a natural connection. Sagittarius allows Aquarius to be what it wants to be. Neither has to push and pull on the other to make things happen. They want to be healthy, balanced, and stay open-minded.

They Deeply Appreciate Each Other's Company

Sagittarius likes and is very flattered by being Aquarius' shoulder to cry on, think on, and make out with. Sagittarius knows how to raise an eyebrow and flirt in a way that invites Aquarius in a comfortable, yet desirable manner.

It's a match that honestly is going to work well for both. They understand each other in a way that other signs might not; Aquarius brings in the fullness of ideas, and Sagittarius helps ignite it with its wild-card.

Tips for Making This Match Work

Be Vulnerable With Each Other

I encourage these two to be more vulnerable. We hide our real emotions when we are afraid of what people will see or how they might abuse us. Sagittarius will find that Aquarius will be gentle with them, and they don't have anything to fear. Sagittarius needs to remove its mask and allow its emotions to surface. Letting your guard down will help the relationship, as Aquarius requires its partner to be authentic. It craves the removal of that mask and will reward it with trust and devotion.

Embrace Each Other's Weird Sides

Aquarius needs to be comfortable being as weird as possible—this helps with vulnerability. Aquarius is constantly absorbing emotions as the water-bearer—and being weird helps release it. A held-back Aquarius is playing with fire. It needs to express itself. Sagittarius has great focus as the archer; it is the philosophical centaur. Among all the bright stars, Sagittarius has a strong desire to find someone truly intelligent and intellectually stimulating.

Dote on Each Other

Sagittarius likes to be flattered, and having the Aquarius around as a beautiful, intelligent, and unique soul is a major compliment. Aquarius will do well to dote on Sagittarius from time to time (and vice versa!). Just remember to help them be humble and not inflate their ego beyond reason.

Aquarius would be well pampered by the Sagittarius, who really wants the best for themself and their partner.

How to Maintain a Sagittarius-Aquarius Relationship

Centaurs are known as the astronomers and astrologers. Sagittarius wants to be seen as skillful, not amateur. This is why they pride themselves so much on education and finesse. They want to be seen as refined. They believe in having nice things or at least having refined tastes. They feel this is a way to show love. Sagittarius really can get starstruck by the Aquarius and its wide range of capabilities.

Sagittarius is looking for a good hunt. It doesn't want to settle for anything less. If they believe it is worthwhile, Sagittarius will put a lot of energy into pursuing Aquarius. After all, the archer finds the hunt exciting. And as Sagittarius' prey, Aquarius can expect to be showered with love and devotion.

Sagittarius encourages us to go for greatness. Its lesson on love is greatness, not a puny, deformed version of love. Aquarius is a highly spiritual sign. It wants to roam, to explore wild ideas, so being in a relationship built on understanding and acceptance is critical. Luckily, Sagittarius can handle this, and Aquarius will appreciate having so much room to explore.

How to Get on the Same Page as Your Partner

These two are so open-minded that commitment might not be the first word to pop in their brains. They need to explore each other and be conscious of the idea for a while before rushing into complete commitment. They want to see you can be loyal before putting a title or ring on it. They want to give you that option . . . and test it out.

So if you want a long-term relationship, keep at it. Don't force it—let it come up naturally. Don't be afraid to speak about your desires, but make sure to be courteous. Even if you decide to just be friends, there is great value in this. Stay connected and look for how you can create a long-lasting, healthy connection.

If you want to see sparks, spend time together one-on-one, try exploring your emotions through creativity, try new things together, and throw in some candlelit dinners. Make your romance conscious and active. Flirt, serenade, smile, wink, and don't be afraid to put yourself out there.

6 Ways to Show Your Partner You Care

  1. Making spending time together a priority.
  2. Discuss anything and everything you feel is important.
  3. Have long conversations over coffee or tea.
  4. Focus on music, poetry, and creative expression to get your abstract brains going.
  5. Treat your partner as you want to be treated.
  6. Spend time complimenting and doting on each other.

What a Sagittarius Wants:

This sign wants to date someone awesome—a worthy partner with whom they can grow and learn throughout life. Sagittarius wants someone they can show their real side to, someone they can pamper, someone who has their crap together, someone who they have pride in, someone with a sense of humor, someone who will pamper them, someone romantic and endearing, someone who feels like home. They also want compassion, wit, good conversation, aesthetics, pleasure, variety, fun, mystery, and warmth.

What an Aquarius Wants:

This sign wants to date someone who accepts them—a loyal partner who will be free of judgment. Aquarius wants someone who is deeply interested in them; an open-minded partner to play their games, someone who is authentic, someone who can make them feel comfortable (yet also like adventure is just around the corner). Aquarius wants someone who inspires them, holds them, pursues them, communicates well, initiates—someone who is consistent and inquisitive, spontaneous yet secure. They also want devotion, variety, honesty, unwavering love, acceptance, dreams, truth, and integrity.

      I am a Sagittarius woman deeply in love with an aquarius man. I have never felt this before so deep in my soul. He is the only thing that gets me going. I spend hours wanting him. He's all there is in the world to me. There is no one else. Adventures are our thing. We understand that about each other. Sexy and amazing.

      I (Aquarius) was just curious to see mine snd my partners (Sagittarius) compatibility so I looked it up and found this article. . So I can tell you I am very “I know what I want when I want “ and plan every single detail where as my Sagittarius partner goes with the flow and doesn’t plan anything so I think that make us a good match as well if I were to add anything to this article:)

      I’m an Aquarius woman that’s getting to know a Sagittarius man. I caught his eyes and he’s already moving forward with me such as having feelings, him liking me, wanting to meet my parents, being intimate within 2 weeks of us talking. He’s not cocky nor competitive, he’s a sweetheart and a joker. He has told me he won’t leave me because he feels I’m worth it to him. He has doubts and is worried I’d leave him but I won’t, I admire a man that’s dedicated to his woman.

      I’m a Sagittarius ♐️ who fell in love with an Aquarius but I’d have to say I’m the talker the one who learns on life he’s the more analytical thinker and definitely a listener and socially awkward until he gets to know people I’m observant on body language and tones and vibes so if I get a good vibe I’m comfortable

      I'm a sag girl and i really like this aquarius boy. We've been great friends for a few months, and recently I found out that he likes me too. Both of us (him in particular) are terrible at expressing emotions, but we've been flirting in this very tentative, best friendy sort of way. We hang out together all the time and are really close. A few weeks ago he started completely ignoring me, no explanation given, but when my friend . noticed and asked him about it he came right back. Aquarians are detached like that- I'm not sure he even noticed that we had stopped hanging out. Anyway, i haven't seen him recently but will soon.

      I am an Aquarius. I am in love with a Saggitarius I have known my entire life. It has always been a crush, but the last time he visited he had a gf of 3 months back home and we really connected more than ever while he was here, thats when i fell for him. He was awesome with my 2 year old daughter too. We didnt do anything, though we both wanted to, because he is faithful, which i admired even more. He said he wish we werent so far apart and he has had a thing for me too. when he left i was devastated and it felt like my heart had shattered. Now he is back with his girlfriend for past 2 weeks and we havent spoken, but i cant stop thinking about him. He made me believe in soul mates. I feel the urge to wait for him still. Idk if i should say or do anything else. He knows how i feel. She is a Leo if that matters but he said he didnt know if he could trust her. She was promiscuous before they became exclusive.

      I'm an Aquarius deeply attracted to a Scorpio (mutual ...although we have been on and off for over 1 year). A Sagittarius has come into my life more recently. I'm just so confused. They feel so different. .One so Stormy and captivating...the other so breezy and natural.

      That being said I have a Virgo ex with whom I shared 3 years of my life and it felt like lightning. He has remained in my life though I am sure I no longer share any feelings. Occasionally, I remember this.

      I just need guidance. I need to understand all this.

      I can’t say enough how true this. This paragraph is spot on facts of a Sagittarius-Aquarius relationship. I’m a Sagittarius and my first love is an Aquarius. I am so drawn to him and to everything that he does. He doesn’t talk or express his emotions but I love it. He’s so smart and beyond intelligent and just so spiritual. He amazes me with what he thinks about and we believe we are each other’s soul mate. Thank you for this.
