Libra and Sagittarius compatibility thrives because both signs are seeking similar things from life. Libra, the Idealist of the zodiac, is always seeking perfection just over the horizon, while Sagittarius, the archetypal Adventurer, is seeking the next great thrill or learning experience, also just over the horizon. Why not journey to that next horizon together? And they do.
This is a playful, good natured relationship rooted in a strong basic friendship. These two signs like one another, it’s as simple as that. Libra feels stimulated by Sagittarius’ desire to explore and is willing to allow the Adventurer the freedom they so crave. Sagittarius is enchanted by Libra’s vivacious love of life, and in return is willing to provide Libra with more commitment than the wandering Adventurer will offer almost any other sign. The Idealist could be the one to tame the Adventurer in the end, and Libra will do so not by demanding that Sagittarius stay by his or her side, but by simply asking. As the well known saying goes: if you love someone, let them go. If they come back, they’re yours. If they don’t, they never were. Sagittarius will always go back to Libra, and therein lies the magic of Libra and Sagittarius compatibility.
Libra and Sagittarius are both quite intellectual signs. Libra loves to learn and Sagittarius brings wit and insight to the meeting of minds too. As the cardinal sign in the mix, Libra will take the lead in the relationship, contrary to what you might think; mutable, flexible Sagittarius will be happy to go along with Libra’s plans so long as his or her freedom is maintained. In this way, Libra feels in control of what’s going on and is not scared off by Sagittarius’ exuberant approach to sex – and to flirting. Libra is no stranger to flirting either, after all; Libra and Sagittarius compatibility is notable for the fact that both signs can flirt for their national teams and yet neither feels threatened by the other’s behaviour.
Further insight into Libra and Sagittarius compatibility can be found when we look the ruling planets of the two partners. Libra is ruled by romantic Venus, seeking a pure expression of love. Sagittarius is ruled by bountiful, optimistic, big hearted Jupiter, seeking both joy and justice. Both signs are very fair minded, and open minded too, and each will always give the other a fair hearing. As a fire sign, Sagittarius does have a temper, but shows it less to gentle Libra than to almost any other sign, won over as the Adventurer is by Libra’s calm and logical demeanour.
Of course, there may be bumps along the road to that next horizon both signs are seeking. Libra is a gentle and sensitive sign, and can be hurt by Sagittarian bluntness and lack of tact. Sagittarius, ever restless, can become impatient with Libra, who takes forever to make up his or her mind. However, thanks in large part to those ruling planets of Venus and Jupiter this relationship has a freshness and a zest about it which helps to overcome any difficulties. For signs like Sagittarius and Libra, two apart in the zodiac, romantic compatibility is easier than for many other couples. There’s a sense of happiness between these two, and a can-do approach to life. Both partners are willing to compromise and can be very resourceful in finding ways to help their relationship blossom. For Libra and Sagittarius, compatibility with one another increases the more time they spend together, as they gradually “get” one another even more.
For these two upbeat signs, then, love can indeed be an adventure – an idealistic adventure when both partners are fully committed, thereby satisfying both of their archetypes. Libra and Sagittarius compatibility is not thwarted by difficult times or stress, because both partners have what it takes to help one another through problems. This couple might never settle down in the true sense of the phrase, constantly seeking as they are, but they are almost certain to stay happy and in love as they journey onwards together, always eager to see what life will bring them next.
