Find out if Virgo and Sagittarius are compatible from internationally-known astrologer Joanna Martine Woolfolk in this Howcast video.
Virgo and Sagittarius instantly form a kind of fun friendship. The fun part is really Sagittarius who looks for fun in life. Sagittarius is a free spirit. It is the sign of the adventurer, the one who wants to get out and experience and not be tied down. Sagittarius is a fire sign, so it has a lot of energy, a kind of dynamic passion, but the passions of a Sagittarius are not deep seated, they don’t smolder. The passions, more or less, are like fireworks. They go off like fire, instead of like smoke. Virgo is an earth sign. An earth seeks stability. In astrology an earth stands for an ordered and structured existence, looking for structure so that the person can be safe and can control its environment. Immediately these two can form a kind of fun friendship because they find in each other something interesting. Virgo is a thinker, and so is Sagittarius, they both are interested in ideas. The difficulty is that Sagittarius has a way of making reserved Virgo feel less than, or feel in some way that he or she isn’t living up to the Sagittarian idea of a free spirit. Virgo doesn’t want to be a free spirit, it wants to live a life of accomplishment and of something important, to do something. When the Virgo leaves this earth, the Virgo wants to know, oh, I made a difference to the world. Sagittarius does not like being tied down, Virgo does like being in a structure. And, so very quickly, that becomes a source of discord. Sagittarius also has a way of making Virgo feel criticized, and even though Sagittarius doesn’t criticize, Virgo is the one who is critical, very often people who criticize themselves are very wounded by criticism, they can dish it out, but cannot take it. So, in many, many ways, this relationship, which could stay a friendship, except that sex rears its head and then they get sexually involved, and then all is lost because it becomes very emotional, and at the same time, each of them feels that the other is not giving the other what he or she needs. So, I would say, lovely first friendship, lovely first affair, and then better to part ways, because long term, there are so many difficulties.
