Sagittarius and Scorpio compatibility is a hot and steamy mixture of a fire and a water sign, but very different outlooks on life make it tricky for this couple to forge a lifelong relationship together. The Adventurer and the Sorcerer want fundamentally different things from life, but if true love prevails then a compromise might be found.
Scorpio and Sagittarius are both strong personalities, but they are drawn to one another by an intrigue they can’t quite figure out. It seems that Scorpio is attracted to the fire and charisma of the Adventurer, and Sagittarius is turned on by the mystique and the quiet, brooding nature of the Sorcerer. If truth be told, both signs sense some danger in the other one, and both are willing to try their luck. Sagittarius and Scorpio compatibility is a little like a test of wills or a battle of emotional depth over enthusiasm; of vitality over power. Across the zodiac, love compatibility often flares originally when both signs sense a challenge, and so is the case here.
What both signs bring to the table is a huge amount of passion. Sagittarius has a passion for life itself, and a fiery, open, energetic nature. Scorpio has a deep, sexual, seductive passion which blends with Sagittarius to produce great chemistry and an irresistible attraction between these two. However, both partners have volatile natures and an initial sexual intensity isn’t going to be enough to sustain this partnership over the longer term. For Sagittarius and Scorpio compatibility to last, there has to be a deeper level of understanding between the two partners.
The relationship runs into trouble when Scorpio possessiveness tries to get freedom loving Sagittarius to make some kind of commitment. The more the Sorcerer tries to expert power over the elusive Adventurer, the more the couple struggle – but Scorpio does not give in, and will not get the message to back off. This is a shame, because if Scorpio learnt to let go a little and gave Sagittarius some measure of independence, the Adventurer would probably stay fairly close of his or her own accord, fascinated by the enigma which Scorpio so expertly portrays. Sagittarius and Scorpio compatibility can be made to work, when both partners realise where they’re going wrong, but stubborn Scorpio is much less open to change than Sagittarius is.
While gregarious Sagittarius would like to be out and about, making new friends and socialising, insular Scorpio would much rather be at home, turning on the Sorcerer’s power and controlling and directing the couple’s life. Clearly, this is an issue which has to be resolved. Yet when this couple argue, the situation becomes even more complicated. Scorpio won’t reveal their true emotions easily, whereas Sagittarius lays their soul bare in true what-you-see-is-what-you-get fashion. The open and honest Adventurer will eventually tire of Scorpio’s hidden depths precisely because those depths remain hidden. Patience is not a Sagittarian strong point and the Adventurer may well decide to move on to a more straightforward partner.
Where both partners are tying hard to resolve their problems, however, there is light at the end of the tunnel. The danger that these two sensed in one another – that Scorpio might swallow Sagittarius’ fire in their emotional depths, or that Sagittarian restlessness would boil away at Scorpio’s jealousy – can pass if communication can be improved. It helps if Sagittarius learns to give Scorpio time and space to come up with a response – seeking on the spot, face to face answers doesn’t work with the Sorcerer. Sagittarius and Scorpio compatibility can be salvaged with a little mutual understanding and an agreement to work with one another instead of against each other.
