Libra and Sagittarius:  Can This Relationship Succeed?


Venus and Jupiter, are two planets that are 416 million miles away, and yet in the zodiac, does distance define compatibility?

Libra, you’re ruled by Venus, and Sagittarius, you’re one of two signs ruled by Jupiter, so let’s explore what that means in terms of how it affects your personalities, friendship, and relationships. Venus, the planet of love, means that you, Libra, appreciate the finer things in life, including good friends. One-on-one relationships are everything to you, and when you develop a connection with someone, for better or worse, you latch on and don’t let go.

Jupiter represents luck and fortune and is considered one of the most beneficial planets in the zodiac. It also rules fire signs like you, Sag, which makes you perhaps one of the luckiest signs in the zodiac, especially with developing relationships with others. Jupiter is also the biggest planet in the solar system, symbolizing your big-hearted nature, Sagittarius, something that can be off-putting to some and admirable to others–especially the ones like Libra, who sense a match when they see it.

Libra Zodiac Symbol


Libra, you’re a dreamer through and through. It’s one of the consequences of being an air sign; you’re not entirely grounded in reality, and you have no problem with that.

Creativity is intricately linked to your nature. Even if you don’t have artistic or musical abilities, you will recognize something of value when you see or hear it.

For you, life is supposed to look good and feel great, and you seek harmony and peace in every relationship you have.

Balance is imperative in your companionship, and you’re a natural mediator; however, like your symbol, the scales, although you seek balance, sometimes things can become off-centered if you put too much focus on one side over the other.

When this happens, your mental health suffers, and as a result, your relationships may too, but because you detest confrontation, it’s more likely that you’ll sweep things under the rug and hope for everything to reset on its own.

This is easier with some signs over others, and although you’re a people pleaser by nature, you’ll naturally gravitate to the friends who don’t expect you to stretch yourself just to please them.

Sagittarius Zodiac Symbol


You can be a bit much for some people, Sagittarius, but it’s only because your big personality is reflective of your big heart. You care deeply about your friends and are always searching for a connection with the people in your life.

You’re a mutable fire sign, which means you’re adaptable to different situations, but always with a burst of fiery energy, a heat that warms some and sets others on fire.

You’re never ashamed of who you are though; you value your identity and know that you only have one life, and you intend to make the best of it.

You’re an active person, and if you’re not involved in sports, then you’re involved in your community or constantly outside doing things at the end of your workday.

You like to be involved so much that you don’t mind your hands getting dirty, but from an outside perspective, this can make you appear restless as you’re constantly searching for new experiences.

Your symbol is the archer, and like a bow and arrow, you’re stationary one moment before you find your next target and fly through the air, ready to make the connection that will inspire your next moments. Your limitless enthusiasm is secondary only to your desire for change and freedom.

Libra and Sagittarius in Friendship

When you two meet, like the distance between your planets, you will recognize the breadth of your differences and feel like you have little in common. But it’s exactly your differences that will bring you together. Sagittarius, your desire for freedom is often bogged down by the friends in your life who crave stability, but Libra is that unique spirit who has built a steady foundation and yet enjoys searching for the possibilities the unknown offers.

Libra, as a cardinal sign who likes to initiate things, you will probably be the person who recognizes the potential of a friend in Sagittarius–and your gut is on point. You desire a friend who will take your ideas and formulate them into a fun, new experience, and Sagittarius–often appearing detached in their pursuit of change–will see your ideas and sweep them into reality, creating a tether that will tie you together without suffocating your individualism.

This will be an energetic friendship that will pulsate with change and yet always thrive from trust.

Friend Date: Mani/Pedi or Streaking on the Beach at Midnight?

Libra, you’re full of ideas but often don’t pursue them, especially if you surround yourself with people who are stuck to their routines. Although you always come up with new things to do, you have a tendency to allow others to make the final choice.

It’s a relief in some ways to take the pressure off you, but it’s debilitating when you end up sacrificing your own interests just to make someone else happy. Sagittarius will be the friend who despises routine, who will take your fresh idea and formulate it into an adventure. You will jump in head first, Libra, excited to experience new things and be eager to shake things up a bit.

Just be careful, Libra, that you don’t fall into the same pattern of sacrificing your desires for your friend because even though you enjoy new experiences, you also crave a balance of stability. Don’t worry though, you will have no issue expressing this to Sagittarius. With this friend, there will be no need to sacrifice yourself to please them.

Sagittarius is more than happy to explore the world on their own and, as a mutable sign, is not only flexible in the activities they do but in their understanding of your need to reset and recharge. This will be an exciting friendship with no pressure when you each want to do your own thing.

Conversation is effortless between you two. You two will talk until the sun comes up if no one stops you. Disagreements are unlikely, but if they happen, Libra will struggle to express their dissatisfaction. Sagittarius will pick up on it, however, and their directness will encourage Libra to open up and talk about things instead of sweeping everything under the rug.

Libra, you’re diplomatic by nature, so once you know you have a safe space to talk, you’ll work through your feelings, and Sagittarius, if there’s one thing you’re not, it’s judgemental. You embrace loyalty in your friendships and will have no problem discussing things if it improves Libra’s sense of balance and allows you two to move forward onto your next adventure.

Any potential issues will arise because you, Libra, will struggle to express yourself, and you, Sagittarius, will be too focused on your next adventure to tend to recognize something is off with your friend.

Dating Advice: Send His Name or Send His Social?

You two are similar in the speed at which you can connect with strangers, although you tend to go about it in different ways. Libra, you’ll date because you’re searching for love, while you, Sagittarius, are more likely to date because you’re ready for someone to share your adventures with.

Regardless, you’re both extroverted and embrace connecting with people and find it easy to do so. As a result, you two have a tendency to fall fast and hard, and you may both ignore red flags when they arise. As friends, you’ll definitely discuss your new beaus with each other, and you may be able to recognize any issues the other will ignore.

Sagittarius will point out if you’re sacrificing your needs for your new partner, Libra. Libra will encourage you, Sagittarius, to not jump ship just because your new partner is a little more grounded than your free spirit.

Libra and Sagittarius in Love

Your friendship sounds pretty great, right? Well, love between you two will be even better. This is one of those rare situations where you two work better as lovers than friends, specifically when it comes to communication. Any potential issues in your friendship may fall back to Libra’s inability to express dissatisfaction or Sagittarius being a little too self-centered on their new beau or next adventure.

But when you two have taken things to the next level, you’ll realize that what you have is too great to risk. Libra, you’ll force yourself to step outside your comfort zone to confront Sag on any issues you may have, but it’s unlikely you’ll even have to because, as Sagittarius’ lover, you’ll now be the center of their universe, and they’ll give you the attention you need and deserve.

Not only will they enjoy where you go, but they’ll suggest their own ideas and somehow be able to keep up with your ever-changing interests in your conversation.

Libra, Sagittarius is a breath of fresh air for you. Sagittarius is passionate, while Libra is emotional, and the connection will create a night neither of you will be quick to forget.

Your boldness, Sag will inspire Libra, and Libra, your harmonious nature will add peace to Sagittarius’s sometimes chaotic ever-changing interests in life.

Libra, some signs have become jealous of the ease with which you talk to strangers, but not Sagittarius. If anything, your Sag partner is right beside you, initiating and engaging in the conversation.

Communication is seamless between you two, and when you two are together, you will learn an interesting thing about love languages: what you need will vary depending on who you’re with.

You both may have needed words of reassurance from your previous partners, but you won’t require it in this partnership. Quality time will be the rub here. Sagittarius will need adventure and want you along for the ride, Libra.

But sometimes, Libra, you crave the silence of staying at home and want to just cuddle with Sagittarius on the couch. While Sagittarius detests routine, they will understand this need of yours, Libra, and will respect it since they know that you, Libra, will always join them when you desire a partner on your adventures.

There’s a balance in your relationship, and it’s what you need to feel secure, Libra, which allows you to give Sagittarius the freedom they need to sometimes do their own thing.
