Why Sagittarius and Aquarius Fall in Love

Andrea loves to write about the zodiac and research astrological love compatibility. She's been an online writer for over five years.

Fire Meets Wind

What are these two signs? Sagittarius and Aquarius get along partly for being in the latter part of the zodiac.

Wind signs and fire signs have a certain amount of innate comfort in each other. They push each in the right direction and inspire one another. The latter part of the zodiac becomes more soft, often weirder, and more chill. Your first few signs in the zodiac have a lot of bravado, aggression, and need for the ball to get moving. They can be impatient, but mighty.

As for Aquarius and Sagittarius, these are the last wind and fire signs of the zodiac. Sagittarius signs are the 9th house, and Aquarius is the 11th.

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

Aquarius will enjoy trying to unmask Sagittarius who can put on a different face in front of others and in private. They both are charismatic personalities. Both will appreciate that they have a wide circle of friends. They can pick up things with each other in a split second. They feed off each in a positive way, Sagittarius doesn't disrupt Aquarius but stays chill. Sagittarius keeps a good, healthy tempo for Aquarius who has an incredibly soulful, musical way that needs to just run all over the place. Aquarius will be a great protector for Sagittarius who it knows people will use—this is partly why Sagittarius starts to wear a mask.

Natural Connection

This is a natural connection. Sagittarius allows Aquarius to be what it wants to be. Neither have to push and pull on each other to make things happen. They want to be healthy, balanced, and they stay open-minded. Sagittarius has the focus Aquarius wants—Aquarius is looking for a devoted, loyal, and also respectful partner. Aquarius doesn't want someone who clings to them, who doesn't allow them to have freedom or accuses and judges them. Sagittarius likes and is very flattered by being Aquarius' shoulder to cry on, think on, and make-out on. 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 others might not, Aquarius brings in the fullness of ideas, and Sagittarius helps ignite it with its wild-card.

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

Tips for Making This Match Work

I encourage these two to be more vulnerable. Sagittarius needs to remove its mask and allow its emotions to escape. Aquarius requires its partner to be authentic, so it will gladly remove the mask for you. We hide our real emotions when we are afraid of what people will see or that they'll abuse us. Sagittarius will find that Aquarius will be gentle with them, and they don't have anything to fear. Letting your guard down will help the relationship.

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. Sagittarius has a strong desire to catch something intelligent among all the bright stars.

Centaurs are known as the astronomers and astrologers. They are study-aholics—they love education. The opportunity of an Aquarius to a Sagittarius is like a steak to a hungry wolf. Sagittarius will be excited by the very hunt and will keep at it if they believe it is worthwhile. They don't want to scare Aquarius and know that is child's play. Sagittarius wants to be seen as skillful, not amateur. This is why they consume so much education, finesse, and pride. 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. Aquarius wouldn't just be a nice thing—Aquarius would be well pampered by the Sagittarius who really wants the best of company. It really can get star struck by the Aquarius and its wide range of capabilities. I think, inevitably, these two have a lot going for each other as a romantic match.

How to Maintain a Sagittarius and Aquarius Relationship

Sagittarius by its nature is looking for a good hunt. It doesn't want to settle for anything less. Sagittarius encourages us to go for greatness. Its lesson on love is greatness, not a puny, deformed version of love. 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. Aquarius is a highly spiritual sign. It wants to roam, explore ideas out of control—and Sagittarius can handle this. I think what's nice for Aquarius is there is so much room to explore; there is a lot of understanding and acceptance.

How do you get on the same page in order to maintain a relationship?

These two are so open minded that commitment might not be the first word to pop in their brain. They need to explore each other and be conscious of the idea for a while before rushing off 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. 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, and make sure to be courteous. Even if you decide to be only 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 candlelight dinners. Make your romance conscious and active. Flirt, serenade, smile, wink, and don't be afraid to put yourself out there. You'll be okay one way or the other.

  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, creative expression to get your abstract brains going.
  5. Treat your partner as you want to be treated.
  6. Spend time complimenting each other.
  7. Tell all the friends you have to go home so the two of you can be together.

What a Sagittarius Wants:

To date someone awesome, a worthy partner, to grow and learn throughout life, someone they can show their real side to, someone they can pamper, someone who has their crap together, someone who they have pride in, a good conversationalist, 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, aesthetics, pleasure, variety, fun, mystery, and warmth.

What an Aquarius Wants:

To date someone who accepts them, a loyal partner, a place free of judgment, someone deeply interested in them, an open-minded partner to play their games, someone who is authentic, someone who can make them feel comfortable, adventure around the corner, inspires them, holds them, pursues them, communicates well, consistency, initiates, inquisitive, spontaneous yet secure. They also want: devotion, nutrition, variety, honesty, unwavering love, acceptance, dreams, truth, and integrity.

      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.
