These two signs are very compatible. Both are open-minded, sociable, experimental, freedom loving, rebellious, and not particularly sensitive. Forthright Sagittarius is less likely to hurt Aquarius’s feelings than those of many other signs because Aquarians are not quick to take offense. Also, both signs tend to be independent, so neither is likely to be clingy. They are also typically forward-thinking, visionary, intellectual, and somewhat eccentric, so this can be an intellectually stimulating and mind-expanding match. However, in romance, it may not be exceptionally passionate unless other elements in their natal zodiacs add some sparks.
The intellectual rapport is great with this pairing, and conversations should be endlessly fascinating. Both signs tend to be comfortable with change and inclined to seek new experiences, and they share a common restlessness that can lead them to go off adventuring together. They will introduce each other to new things and broaden one another’s horizons, which helps to hold their mutual interest. However, neither is particularly sentimental, so the relationship may lack emotional depth and be more a meeting of the minds or a cheerful friendship with benefits than a passionate romance unless these individuals have their ascendants or moons in water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces).
Sagittarius and Aquarius understand one another’s needs for space and independence, so neither gets upset if the other pursues interests outside the relationship. If this casual attitude is taken to the extreme, these two may drift apart even if they get along well because their emotional connection is shallow and their outside interests pull them in new directions. Neither is particularly domestic either, as both tend to place a much higher value on experiences than material belongings and home bases, so it’s easy for them to drift from one place to another without too much fuss (and to get into financial troubles along the way).
If these two do settle down within a romantic relationship, they are likely to be good friends as well as lovers, and to keep one another’s interest alive. This tends to be a quirky, idealistic, fun match. However, this pair can get into difficulties because both individuals are impractical sensation seekers and rebels by nature, so neither partner puts any restraint on the other. These two will need to keep a close eye on their finances and the other mundane details of life to avoid problems later on.
Note: There is more to astrological compatibility than sun signs alone. Other elements in a person’s natal zodiac also play a role. Ascendants (rising signs), moon signs, and other planetary placements and aspects also shape personality and affect compatibility. For example, a Capricorn with Leo rising will be more extroverted than a typical Capricorn, and a Taurus with Aries rising or the moon in Sagittarius will be more compatible with Sagittarius than a typical Taurus.
