I have a slight infatuation with the apocalypse. Shows, video games, you name it; I love learning about how people will handle themselves when the ‘you know what’ hits the fan. That’s not to say I’m a doomsday prepper by any means–far from it. I’m probably the least prepared for this type of scenario. So why am I talking about this here, of all places? Well, besides trying to convince you to watch “The Last of Us” (probably the best zombie show out there), I’ve been wondering about something as I’ve been writing these blog posts. Of the twelve astrological signs, who would survive the end of the world?
Well, after years of understanding how a zombie apocalypse might unfold, I’ve had to come to terms with the fact that I wouldn’t be able to do this alone. And out of all of my friends, I know exactly where I would go. One day, after a few drinks and a conversation about zombies, I asked my Aquarius friend where he would put the safe room in his house. Without hesitation, he admitted that his entire house is a safe room. And I realized he wasn’t joking. And it makes sense!
Like a true Aquarius, he is analytical, gravitates to routines, and is the odd one in the boat who would flee to the back roads and find hidden tunnels while everyone else is taking to the highway. I’m one hundred percent convinced out of all the people in the zodiac, the Aquarius will be the one to not just survive but thrive.
And as I started considering all of this, it hit me. Even if you have the smarts, the tools, and the means to survive in this scenario, eventually, loneliness will get the best of you. I had to ask myself–who would be best to ride out the apocalypse with the Aquarius? Well, mainly, I asked myself this when my Aquarius said, in true form, said: ‘yeah, everyone will probably flock to my house when the zombies come, but what do you have to offer me in order to stay?’ As a Virgo, I realized I’m probably on the out. But there is one sign who has the traits, the independence, and the skill to ride out with Aquarius until the next ice age freezes all the zombies. Enter the Sagittarius.
Great Balls of Fire! That’s you, Sagittarius: independent, passionate, and a fiery spitball of energy that won’t back down when cornered into a room. You’re naturally optimistic, but you’ll be blunt and abrasive when someone disrespects you or someone you love. As a mutable sign, you’re constantly seeking change, your adaptability allowing you to go with the flow when the tide of change rolls in.
And when that happens, you’ll be the first to grab your board and ride that wave. In fact, you do best in chaos, craving the unpredictability of what’s hiding around the corners. A typical 9-5 would bore you senseless. (Seeing the reference here to surviving the zombies yet?) Your ruling planet Jupiter represents timing and luck–another reason you might wake up three days after the apocalypse and find you somehow slept through the worst of it.
Most people call you lucky, but you believe it’s more about confidence and going after what you want. And as a fire sign, you don’t hold back when it comes to pursuing your dreams.
YOLO is your middle name. You won’t say no to an adventure, especially if you advance your knowledge in the process. Knowledge is just as important to you as fun and pleasure. When people call you dramatic, you roll your eyes because you pride yourself in your enthusiasm for life. You’re the person who gets the mail, like you’re walking a catwalk. Might as well add some flair to everything you do, if not just for your own personal entertainment.
Like Aquarius, you crave freedom in all forms, and you’re very picky about the people you surround yourself with, not because you’re a pessimist, afraid they might hurt you, but because life is too interesting to be bogged down by uninteresting people–or in the case of the zombies: those who will hold you back.
Aquarius, you’re a free-spirited individual who sees the world from a different angle than everyone else. While the rest of the world is moving forward and backward, you sweep in from the side, landing on two feet as everyone else stumbles.
- You’re a fixed sign, which makes you pragmatic and prone to routine, the stabilizer of the zodiac, who becomes a creature of habit to excel in the ways you see fit.
- You’re also an air sign, someone who excels in communication and wastes no time between the birth of the thought and the manifestation of the action.
Your ruling planet is Uranus, which represents innovation and technology. This planet, like you, is forward-thinking, progressive, yet rebellious, and all about freedom–which is essentially the core of your personality, Aquarius. You detest authority and will crave independence at all costs.
To you, there is nothing worse than following the status quo.
Breaking tradition is a hobby of yours, and you have no problem admitting that out loud.
As an air sign, you can’t be tied down, and you will do whatever it takes to keep your freedom, be it in your relationships, your jobs, or even escaping the quarantine zone in a zombie apocalypse because you just know that you can survive better alone.
Sagittarius and Aquarius in Friendship
Fire and air: the best combination of elements in the Zodiac.
The air of Aquarius is the oxygen that will flair your flames, Sagittarius–and you’ve never quite met anyone like them. And if there’s one thing about you, Sag, you seek the new. New jobs. New places. New people. The more interesting, the better!
Aquarius, you’re used to people finding you odd. You just beat to a different drum, and you don’t really care what anyone thinks. When you meet Sag, however, it will feel like a merging of kindred spirits. Someone who doesn’t find you weird but is instead intrigued by you and eager to hop on your train.
This friendship will become a wild adventure of late-night conversations, spontaneous trips, and Irish goodbyes, where you leave behind your more boring, static friends for the pleasure of something new.
Friend Date: Mani/Pedi or Streaking on the Beach at Midnight?
Aquarius, you’re one of the few fixed signs who doesn’t find comfort in the same static routine. If anything, the only thing predictable about you is your unpredictability. Your routine is more about spontaneity–especially with hanging out with your friends. The call of adventure is around every corner, and as you pursue these new experiences, you’ll find someone hopping in for the ride.
That’s you, Sagittarius, the explorer of the Zodiac, ready for what’s next. Aquarius, you’re more logical than Sagittarius in your decisions, but you’re not going to say no when Sagittarius suggests taking the road less traveled. If Aquarius is the doer, then Sag is the fire giving them gas to move forward. It’s a symbiotic friendship, one where surprises are waiting around every corner.
Friend-Fection: Keep It on the Dl or Text ‘Love Ya Biatch?’
You two are almost too similar for your own good. Sagittarius, you’re blunt and honest about the way you feel, and Aquarius will appreciate this about you, mainly how effortlessly you will express yourself and then change the subject. Aquarius, you don’t like to sit and analyze every minor aspect of your friendship. You much prefer directness, and you’ll value this about your Sagittarius friend.
The only struggle you two will face will be your mutual privacy and independence. It’s likely that your mutual independence will take you on very different adventures in life, and you both will need the effort to come back together and reconnect. But when you do, it will feel like nothing has changed–and that’s when you’ll attempt to make plans for your next trip together.
I say ‘attempt’ because neither of you are great at planning. It’s more likely you’ll run into each other after a year apart and then three days later finding yourself backpacking around Greece together. Or to go along with the zombies–one of you will stumble into the other’s hideout, and then you’ll decide to team up.
Dating Advice: Send His Name or Send His Social?
Both of you are very similar in your approaches to dating. If it adds to your life–great! If it weighs you down–gooooodbye! You’re both too independent to waste your time with someone you have no interest in, or worse, someone who will smother your free spirit.
Sagittarius, it’s likely you’ll go on more dates than Aquarius, mainly because you’re the more social of the two, and you crave the spontaneity of meeting new people. Still, you two probably won’t brag about new partners until it’s official, and even then, you’ll keep the vulnerability feelings to yourself.
Sagittarius and Aquarius in Love
When two signs first come together, it’s likely they will lean toward conversation or action. Either their communication is endless, or their adventures are full. The introverts of the zodiac prefer learning everything there is to know about their new partner, while the extroverts want to share new experiences with them. You two, Sag and Aquarius are a unique blend of both.
Together, you’ll seek spontaneous adventure: bungee jumping, road trips, concerts–but the conversation will never end. Everything you do together is another opportunity to learn more about your partner, but this won’t stop either of you from delving into those deep, personal talks about your thoughts, lives, and dreams. This is one of those rare bondings in astrology where a relationship is actually better than your friendship. It’s truly one of the best matchups in the zodiac.
The First Date: Roses or KFC?
Sagittarius, while you seek knowledge and expansion, Aquarius is interested in originality and intellect. This combination will lead to a first date thick with conversations. You two will probably stay up all night talking about everything from life’s meaning to aliens’ existence.
Nothing will be off-limits in your conversation, and the adventures you’ll find yourselves on will only increase this connection. Sagittarius’ spontaneity will intrigue you Aquarius, while your analytical action-oriented mindset will give Sagittarius new angles to approach topics and experiences they’d given up considering.
Love Language Do’s and Don’ts: A Dealbreaker?
This is where your similarities flourish. You both could not care less about love languages. Neither of you even know what you want for breakfast tomorrow; how could you possibly know the type of love you’ll need from your partner? And because you both detest repetition, you’ll get a kick out of the surprises your partner will plan for your next date night. Communication is top-notch because neither of you like perseverating on issues.
You’ll say how you feel, forget and forgive, and jump in the car for your next adventure. As long as your mutual desire for independence is respected inside the commitment of your relationship, neither of you will have any problem expressing loyalty to your partner. This is one of the healthiest matchups in the Zodiac.
Sexy Time: Slow and Steady or Chompin’ at the Bit?
You both understand that sex is a fun adventure, one that doesn’t need to include feelings to offer enjoyment. Yet, when emotions are involved, well, this will just get even more intense. Sag, you’ll eagerly try new things with your partner, hungrily expressing your affection in a way that allows you to change up intimacy, so it never gets boring. You’ll love this Aquarius, as you’re also open to new experiences and hate routines.
Neither of you are shy about expressing what you like, and this open communication will set the foundation for an exciting physical bond. It’s very likely that before you enter a relationship, you both started as friends with benefits–your physical connection strong, your friendship great, and your desire for freedom equal.
Your mutual desire for fun, freedom, and new experiences will make your friendship strong and your love even stronger–and guarantee that, together, you’ll not only survive the apocalypse but make a whole new world.
