Taurus and Sagittarius: Better as Friends?


Your boyfriend has just broken up with you and needs some time with your two closest girlfriends, so you decide to host a girl’s night with the two people you trust the most: Taurus and Sagittarius. There’s just a slight problem. You’ve known Taurus since elementary school and Sagittarius since college, and you love them both, dearly–and they love you back… but if there’s one thing you’ve learned in your adult life, not everyone you’re friends with is going to be friends with each other. It’s not like these two hate each other. You always manage to have fun when you’re with them; granted, you’re typically either in a larger group, or you’re hanging out one on one.

Tonight’s a bit different. To keep things interesting, you decide that the three of you will play some games. Taurus arrives and, per usual, brings their favorite beer, the snack they’ve been eating since the days of your sleepovers in fourth grade, and their favorite card game. They’re eager for a quiet night in. You made a mistake not telling them Sagittarius was on the way, but before you can even warn them, the door bursts open, and Sagittarius dances in–except they’re not alone. They’ve brought three of your other friends, including a new guy they met last week. Not only that, but they’ve also dyed their hair and brought what they insist are their new favorite games–choices that change everything about your hang out.

You’re happy for the distraction, and you don’t really care because you’re used to this with Sagittarius, and you love them regardless… but Taurus, on the other hand? They look at you, roll their eyes, and because they love you, put up with Sagittarius anyway.

Taurus Zodiac Symbol


Taurus, by the time you reach adulthood, you’re pretty much set in your ways. And for you, that adulthood probably started as soon as you graduated college, if not before then.

You’ve always been mature for your age, but you crave routine and schedule. You’re probably the only person in your college who actually made it to that Monday 9 AM class.

By the time you graduate college, you’re ready for the 9-5 other people dread. And even if you don’t opt for the corporate route in life, you crave stability and will establish that in some way or another.

You detest change, and once you find something you like, it’s rare for you to change it: whether that’s your profession, your friends, or your opinions. Of all the signs, you know who you are and you will make an effort to keep the things in your life that reassure that stability.

Sagittarius Zodiac Symbol


As a mutable sign, you’re born to explore, and you crave the freedom to grow above all else. Sagittarius, you’re ruled by Jupiter, the planet of luck, fortune, and success–and that pretty much sums you up Sag. For someone who is as wild and sporadic as you are, life just always seems to work out.

You’re convinced it’s because taking chances will always result in new opportunities, and since your interests are always changing, you have the unique ability of finding success in anything that allows you to spice things up in life.

Your symbol, the archer, represents your flexible nature. You can adapt to any situation you’re thrown into, and like an archer’s aim, you’re capable of always hitting the target when you head in the right direction.

The only problem you occasionally face? Your interests and hobbies change so quickly, you don’t always know which direction is the right one. Either way, it always ends up working out.

Taurus and Sagittarius in Friendship

Thank God for alcohol. You can’t help but think that as you watch Taurus and Sagittarius attempt to decide which game to play. Time for another glass of wine. Taurus has brought one game–a good one, but predictable.

Sagittarius, meanwhile, has brought six games, all of which they’ve never played before and are convinced will make the night great. They just can’t decide which one to pick. Taurus’ patience only lasts so long. After giving up attempting to convince Sagittarius to play the game they brought, they grab all six of theirs, open up boxes, and attempt to figure out which is the easiest to learn the quickest.

They’ll never be best friends with Sagittarius, but at least Taurus understands if they don’t pick a game soon, Sag’s short-lived attention span will have already jumped to something they’ve deemed more interesting. Just as you finish pouring your wine, Sag jumps up and declares it’s time for a dance party. Poor Taurus hasn’t even finished reading the instructions for the first game. On second thought–you grab the whole bottle and join Taurus on the couch.

Friend Date - Calendar

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

Taurus and Sag, this is where your differences truly shine. Taurus, you probably reached a more stable place in your life way earlier than Sag. Not only do you have the career, the house, and the friend group, but you have your favorite restaurants with your preferred corner booth, the dog park you prefer (even if it is across town, there are always fewer people), and you even have Joe, the mechanic who always gives you the best deals when your BMW acts up.

In other words: you’re established–and predictable. If something works, why change it? The same goes for how you prefer to spend your time. And for this reason, it’s very unlikely that unless you end up accidentally spending a game night with Sagittarius, you two will never cross paths.

Sag, you look at Taurus’ life and attempt not to vomit. How suffocating! You don’t even know what you’re having for breakfast tomorrow, and this one over here has their next ten years planned out to a tee. You literally live for change, and for that reason, when it comes to hanging out with your friends, you never know what you’re going to end up doing–even if they think they’ve already made plans.

Your interests, thoughts, perspectives, and opinions can switch at the drop of a hat, so of course, the same goes for how you prefer to spend your time. Life is too interesting, and the world too big to do the same thing every single day. The more different, the better.

Friend-Fection: Keep It on the Dl or Text ‘Love Ya Biatch?’

In the same way Taurus craves stability, and Sagittarius yearns for change, your approaches to communication are just as different. Taurus, you value your relationships, and for that reason, you process everything you think before you speak it out loud, especially when talking about the more personal things in your friendships, something you don’t do often–and would definitely not do with Sagittarius.

But even when it comes to expressing your thoughts and opinions on life, you will take your time to express yourself. It took you a while to develop these perspectives, and now you’re rooted in them and want to make sure you express them exactly as you see them.

Sagittarius, you’ll be witnessing Taurus’ slow unfolding of their thoughts, and your heart will pound out of your chest, especially if you’re waiting for them to talk before you do. You express your thoughts when you think about them, and if Taurus takes another hour to say five words, you’re definitely going to lose your train of thought. You speak your mind about everything, and the friends who love you know that the only thing predictable about what comes out of your mouth is how unpredictable it will be.

Dating Advice Icon

Dating Advice: Send His Name or Send His Social?

Sagittarius, when it comes to first dates, you’ll text your best friend twenty minutes into the date before you’ve even ordered apps and tell them everything you’re feeling. This goes for the good and the bad, but when it’s good, oh man, your friends need to beware. You’re incredibly nonjudgmental Sag, especially to your own experiences, and for that reason, you don’t censor your thoughts or your feelings. You flip head over heels, front flip, back flip–all the flips and all the rose-colored glasses. Love is something to be talked about, and you don’t care what people get annoyed by that.

Taurus, you watch Sagittarius float off into the sky, newly in love, and then two weeks later, witness them crash land back on earth, and all the while, you’re not surprised. And you don’t get it. You keep things to yourself and refuse to fall for someone until you know who they are.

Taurus and Sagittarius in Love

Just, no. Don’t do it. And if you do, oh, I pity your friends.

First Date Icon

The First Date: Roses or KFC?

You two are so drastically different when it comes to interests that it will be a miracle if you can agree on a location for a first date. If Taurus can convince Sag to go to a quiet dinner, then don’t be surprised if Sagittarius doesn’t make it to the last course. And if you, Taurus, end up leaving your comfort zone to go on an adventure with Sag, keep in mind you may be miserable the entire time. You’re polite, Taurus, so you won’t argue–until Sagittarius changes their mind on things to do for the fifth time in a row.

Love Language Icon

Love Language Do’s and Don’ts: A Dealbreaker?

It probably won’t get here, but if it does, I’ll give you the spark notes. Taurus, you prefer acts of service and quality time–but what you really crave in a partner is someone whose needs are predictable, so even if they don’t match yours, you understand how to work on your communication styles to accommodate them. Sagittarius is the last person who will give this to you. Their love language preferences change like their wardrobe–seven times a day.

Sexy Time Icon

Sexy Time: Slow and Steady or Chompin’ at the Bit?

This might be the only place where you guys can find a bit of a connection, and even then it won’t last long. Taurus, the stability that you crave in your normal life doesn’t always extend to the bedroom. Your sensuality overtakes you there, and you’re open to experimenting and finding new ways to express yourself. Sagittarius can help bring this out of you. And you, Taurus, could offer Sagittarius the reassurance and pleasure Sagittarius equally craves.

The best situation between you two would be a friend-with-benefits situation, but you Taurus are searching for loyalty too hard for that to happen, while you Sagittarius are more likely to get involved with someone who you fall head over heels for immediately, and for that to happen you need to feel a shared connection outside of intimacy, and that won’t happen with Taurus.

The Verdict?

Taurus, for someone who parks in the same parking space when they go grocery shopping at the same time on the same day of the week, you will find Sagittarius’s consistency in their chaos boring.
