Virgo and Sagittarius Compatibility

Virgo and Sagittarius Compatibility

Traditionally this combination is considered to be quite difficult! When two people are born under conflicting elements – here Earth and Fire – 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 takes a rather more carefree and happy-go-lucky approach.To the easygoing Sagittarian, Virgo may appear to be a small-minded fusspot, 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 different 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.

Virgo & Sagittarius Sexual & Intimacy Compatibility

Just like all mutable sign combinations, these partners could have a lot of fun. Even though Virgo can be quite demanding and critical, especially from the point of view of Sagittarius, their sex life can be satisfying for both. The good thing about their connection lies in a fact that these signs are ruled by planets that also rule their opposing signs. This means that they will feel attraction and a need to begin a sexual relationship in the first place.

The main problem here is in the difference in their elements. Virgo is an Earth sign, and as such, doesn’t often take too many risks. Sagittarius is a Fire sign, and they will passionately force things until they reach their goal. This doesn’t work well in their sexual contact, for Virgo might feel pushed into things they don’t want to do, and Sagittarius might be turned off by the practical and static nature of Virgo. The most important thing these partners should remember is that they both need room to be who they are. With two such giving people, sex life comes down to who will satisfy whom best, as soon as they deal with unrealistic expectations.


Sexually, Virgo and Sagittarius 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.


The styles of thinking of these two Star Signs really couldn’t be less alike! Virgo has a very cautious mental outlook and likes to think issues through in great detail before making judgments or taking decisions. Sagittarius is more likely to trust to luck than reason, and can be rather sloppy-minded about checking the small print before committing to an important agreement.

Communication between this couple can also be rather awkward and mutually irritating. Sagittarius is frequently too bluntly and crudely outspoken for Virgo’s refined sensitivities, while Virgo’s constant nit-picking tends to drive the devil-may-care Archer crazy!
