Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign, that’s ruled by Jupiter. They’re known for being free spirits with high energy and goofy personalities, which can light up any room and cause people to gravitate toward their warm, gregarious attitude. But who is Sagittarius compatible with in life and love?

Well, to figure out who they’ll vibe with best (and least), it’s important to know a few things about this zodiac sign first: “Sagittarius is a trustworthy, intelligent, aggressive, powerful, and caring sign, but they also hold grudges, talk without thinking, and can be judgmental, rebellious, and egoistic,” says Emily Newman, astrologer, psychic reader and spiritual healer at The Best of Psychic Readers. Sagittarius is naturally drawn to signs who will have a more spontaneous, care-free attitude towards life and want to seize as many opportunities as possible. They’ll do best with people who desire time to themselves and give Sagittarius independence to do their own thing, in addition to spending true quality time together as a couple. Which brings us to the question….

Who is Sagittarius compatible with?

1. Sagittarius with Aries

Aries is a cardinal fire sign, meaning they’re an initiator, and their big, bold personality and upbeat, adventurous, and open-mindedness resonate well with Sagittarius. “They value freedom and have a great aim to discover new things, and both are action-oriented, quickly energized, and enthusiastic about living life,” Newman says.

A healthy relationship requires both parties to have shared interests and Aries and Sagittarius overlap in many characteristics. But they may differ when it comes to speed, so they want their relationship to progress at different paces. “Aries is quite impulsive and takes shortcuts, whereas Sagittarius would prefer to collect data; however, both are complementary to each other,” Newman says.

2. Sagittarius with Leo

Leo, a fixed fire sign, can be set in their ways, but the two have comparable characteristics, so that tends to not be an issue. They both need excitement and novelty, so the relationship is never boring. “One of the key elements that make Leo the ideal companion for Sagittarius is their shared perspective on making life and love interesting and joyful,” Newman says.

“On the other hand, Sagittarius must take their feelings toward Leo seriously,” she says, as their non-commitment tendencies won’t work well with Leo as a partner. Yet, they’re happy to both support each other and to grow.

3. Sagittarius with Libra

Libra is a cardinal air sign that’s highly social, which is great because both Sag and Libra love to be around people and have a large community. They also have many things in common, so their lifestyles, hobbies, and life goals match well.

“Plus they’re each other's biggest cheerleaders and enjoy seeing the other achieve great things,” Newman says. Libra must take the initiative in this partnership, but they’re able to do so with ease.

Who is Sagittarius least compatible with?

1. Sagittarius with Taurus

Taurus is a fixed earth sign that’s known to be sensual and stubborn. Bulls like to stay at home and enjoy the comforts within a close circle of people and with their partner, whereas Sagittarius prefers to travel and meet new people, basically, to be out of the house as much as possible.

“[Neither] figure out how to make lifestyle decisions together,” Newman says. “Sagittarius is adventurous, unexpected, and impulsive, whereas Taurus is slow, calm, and stable,” she adds. Plus, in their relationship, they both have trust issues—Taurus thinks Sagittarius is fast and loose, and Sagittarius thinks Taurus is too reserved and conservative.

2. Sagittarius with Cancer

Cancer is a mutable fire sign that loves staying in its shell (err home). It has a hard time understanding Sag’s ever-changing character. “They dislike Sagittarius's gregarious and adventurous character and instead value family most, and so they frequently expect their spouse to spend time with them,” Newman says.

And when Sag is out and about, Cancer believes Sagittarius has no feelings for them, and unfortunately, despite feelings present, Sagittarius believes Cancer is not ideal for them, long-term, either, as they want someone to share their world with.

3. Sagittarius with Virgo

Virgo is a mutable earth sign, and both it and Sag have an aversion toward marriage and settling down. This can create resistance from both ends that makes the relationship stagnant and slow-moving. “Sagittarius is frustrated by Virgo's need for perfection, while Virgo believes Sagittarius is negligent because of their careless nature and with their management of things,” Newman says.

Both may be fairly romantic, but there will be acknowledgment of flaws that can hurt their day-to-day as a couple. “Sagittarius dislikes Virgo's analytical behavior, whereas Virgo dislikes Sagittarius's easy-goingness, thus it’s one of the hardest relationships for Sagittarius to manage,” Newman explains.
