Sagittarius - Virgo Love Compatibility



What are the chances of success of a Sagittarius-Virgo love match? How compatible are Sagittarius and Virgo emotionally and sexually – and what are their relationship strengths and challenges?

Well, traditionally this combination is considered to be quite difficult! When two people are born under conflicting elements – here Fire and Earth – it can be hard for them to fully understand where one another are coming from and their level of love compatibility is likely to be quite poor.

Tensions can arise due to their contrasting ways of going about things – normally quite carefully and precisely when someone has the sun in Virgo, whereas Sagittarius tends to take a more carefree and happy-go-lucky approach. To the easygoing Sagittarian, Virgo may appear to be a small-minded fuss-pot, whereas conscientious Virgo may find the Archer's inattention to detail a huge pain in the ass.

There are some noticeable differences in the things that are important to them in life – in the case of Virgo, work, service and the satisfaction of doing a job really well – in the case of Sagittarius, adventure, excitement and the liberty to do exactly as it pleases. In a long-term relationship this can often give the sense of being pulled in totally contrasting directions.

Because Earth and Fire have a natural tendency to extinguish each other, to be able to function successfully together, compromise is needed on both sides. If Virgo can come to respect Sagittarius's enthusiasm and vision – while accepting that it will never be able to tame the Archer's maverick spirit – and in turn Sagittarius learns to value Virgo’s practicality and strong work ethic – potentially they could make a good team.

Emotionally, Sagittarius and Virgo couldn’t really be much more different!

Sagittarius is a born optimist, always ready to take a gamble in life, while Virgo is more of a cautious realist, who will never commit until it’s checked out the smallprint. Virgo is a compulsive worrier with a strong perfectionist streak who never feels truly satisfied with any of its efforts or achievements. Sagittarius’s standards are much looser, and in Virgo’s eyes far too sloppy and careless at times.

Highly analytical Virgo simply can’t help pointing out the happy-go-lucky Fire sign’s many errors, mistakes and failings – and although jovial Sagittarius may initially laugh off its picky partner’s relentless fault-finding, when enough is enough, it will retaliate with a fearsomely blunt tongue-lashing.

Sagittarius-Virgo arguments can be cruelly outspoken, but never unfair and certainly never untruthful. They’re also soon over and done with: both being mutable signs, Sagittarius and Virgo are ready to move on quite quickly, and since neither is particularly sensitive, they don’t bear an ongoing grudge.


Sexually, Sagittarius and Virgo aren't among the best matched star signs. Dependable Virgo may complain that the freedom-loving Archer is too unpredictable, too irresponsible and too unwilling to commit, while to hot-blooded Sagittarius, Virgo can seem too analytical, clinical and cold-hearted.

For things to work well between these two on a romantic/sexual level, Sagittarius has to overcome its wanderlust tendencies, while Virgo needs to warm up a bit and be rather less uptight and prissy.


There are some serious question marks over the ability of a Sagittarius-Virgo couple to co-exist harmoniously in a live-in relationship.

Will the play-it-safe Earth sign end up stifling the fiery Sagittarian’s passion for adventure? Are Sagittarius’s big dreams and ideas far too grandiose and impractical for feet-on-the-ground Virgo? Will conscientious Virgo be left to do all the work, pay all the bills and carry all the responsibilities, while its Sagittarian partner enjoys a footloose and care-free existence?

Only if both people have a live-and-let-live outlook and are very tolerant of the other, is a Sagittarius-Virgo relationship likely to prove successful in the long run.
