The Archer and The Ram
This series on AstroCompatibility will cover all of the potential matchups in the Zodiac. We will continue this series thinking about and commenting on Aries and Sagittarius.
Aries – Sagittarius
Sagittarius is a Fire Sign. Aries is a Fire Sign. Aries is Cardinal. Sagittarius is Mutable. This makes these signs similar, and the differences tend to be complementary. Sagittarius, being mutable, adds creative flair and adaptability to the Arian fiery cardinality. This means that the “horse” “archer” can make Aries fire even more workable. Sagittarius can “fix” on the run, the motivating energy of Aries. This is definitely a fascinating profile. As with the Aries – Leo combination, it is difficult envisioning who is going to sit in the “Shotgun” side, next to the driver of the car.
The Idea of an Aries and a Sagitarius makes one envision a very fun couple with energy sparking all over the place. While it makes a marvelous picture, seriously, it does make one ask – “When they are tired or at rest, what will they be like?” Focusing on Sagittarian mutability, you see a highly adaptable high energy person. It’s not that Aries couldn’t keep up, but you have to ask whether the Aries by its very nature would want a more settling sign, like Taurus or Cancer. Sagittarius too might benefit from more stolid solidarity, but if love is exploding and taking flight, who is anyone to say it could be better? If they fell head over heels, one must humbly sit back and see what develops!
Since Aries and Sagittarius share “fireyness”, it is not difficult to imagine a positive vision for this couple. I mean, they would both like the same things in the same way, but the question does remain who would be the quiet thoughtful one? Positively speaking, one would tend to see extroversion, sociability, affableness and gregarious handshaking and backslapping. Regardless of how the genders work, it looks like a dramatic match up. Sun shine combined with the last bursting energy of Fall, before Winter sets in. Without hesitation, its dramatic.
Aries and Sagittarius would be romantic in the truest sense of that word. Sagittarius could adjust for Aries, and Aries could supply enough crackling flame to blend with the Archer’s arrows flying skyward. Tempers could flair just because both are not afraid to speak up. Sagittarius could cause offense, because that’s what they kind of do, as a way of expressing themselves. If Aries took offense too often, there could be ramifications in the bedroom. There is no one here to tend to hurt feelings. But then there is little here to evidence that anyone would be overly sensitive either. But if feelings became an issue, it would be hard to imagine a cute or fanciful ending, to what could be a noisy affair.
If Aries presents a grievance, the Archer could leap the fense, fire off the arrows, deflect blame, distract by diffusing and confusing issues. This is just the way they function. They could fail to see the importance of the fight. They might be the last to see that a certain issue could be the end of the relationship. These two are going to compete over increasing the volume, but not run to quick and easy reconcilation. Neither is a “kiss and makeup” kind, unless they really loved the kissing part. It’s not that they can not apologize, its just that they will not run to a pacifying position, just to end the conflict. The Archer’s sense of Justice could work in both directions. If they think the side of Justice is with them, they could be stubborn. If they see that Justice is on the other side, they could move toward reconciliation. However, both will want to have the conflict ended, because its counter productive to daily fun and activity, to be grinding away at negative emotions.
Life in the end is repetitive and mundane, and so is Romance itself. This factor asks the question: “Can we be bored together over the long term?” Leo and Sagittarius will fundamentally be opposed to being bored. If they do get bored, it will probably need a super makeover of the relationship, or their life style. An older Sagittarius can stay youthful and have an upward and onward look, even when they are melancholy. Since Sagittarius is concerned with Justice and Fairness, that could mean continuing happiness for the Aries. However, if Aries is too selfish and headstrong, the horse, rising up on its hind legs, could demand a fairer peace and a plan for lessening boredom.
Keep Up The Interest Graph:
Sagittarius has a lifelong mission of keeping the horizon new and the terrain beneath their feet green and fresh and untrod upon. The archer will make a new path and leave the travelled road for any good reason, and without a reason. Sagittarius would show the Ram a different cliff to jump from. Aries might be even more bold and more daring, so they could constantly challenge one another in terms of “keeping up the interest”. Trips, new plans, charity projects or trips to Cancun, could all be a part of the agenda. The danger is that in all the interest stimulation, they might lose track of each other, as time goes on.
Seven Year Itchiness:
There are some signs that by their nature are more stable in their love interests and family concerns as time goes on. Others are not. The “7 year itch” could look like a bridge to cross with flags waving at the crossing guard. A definite warning for both signs here. Just pure energy and a sense of adventure could lead them into territory that they were not aware they were even walking into. The 7 year itch happens, not from deliberation, but because of distracting inadvertence powered by a vague longing for new satisfaction. Based on that description, both signs should put themselves on notice.
ASTROCOMPATIBILITY POSSIBILITY RATING: 75% Positive Long Term – 90% Short Term. It is difficult imagining how, after initial interest and personality matching, that this would not get a rocket start. This would be all fireworks and romance in the beginning. If as time passes, the relationship gets stabilized and confirmed, it could be very hopeful for the super long term. However, always there would be the “flashing red” that infidelity could cause a break. Hearts and minds could groove into old age. But there must always be this warning: The Archer shoots and the Ram can leap.
