Why Sagittarius and Aquarius Fall in Love (and Stay in Love)
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.
