Virgo and Sagittarius: Can These Astrology Signs Work?


Virgo and Sagittarius, you guys are like two stories, both written in the same book. There’s a connection between you two, an understanding that makes outsiders understand why you share the same space.

However, there’s a reason you don’t fill the exact same page. As friends, some aspects of your personalities will click effortlessly, each word like a rhyme, but as lovers? Well, it’s likely where one of your stories starts, the other ends.

Although you can flip through the pages in an attempt to understand what went wrong, you may never find it because, well, there are just some people who, while friendly enough, just aren’t meant to find love.

Let’s flip open the cover and your story, Virgo and Sagittarius, and figure out how things unfold when it comes to friendship and love.

Virgo Zodiac Symbol


Virgo, you’re ruled by the planet Mars, which represents communication and wisdom. Expressing yourself is incredibly important to you, and you rely on your ability to talk out loud, either to friends and family to understand your feelings.

If you’re like me–single, living alone, and full of friends who sometimes don’t want to hear my every single thought, I rely on journaling to get my thoughts out.

I wish I could say I read back what I write, but that’s far from the case. My journals are purely a tool to funnel my obsessive thoughts out of my brain and onto paper as if the act alone softens the intensity of my thoughts.

It usually works, but if the issues I hold are with a specific person, while journaling will allow me to organize my thoughts, I will still need to talk about things in order to move on.

As a mutable sign, Virgo is adaptable, and although you enjoy being organized and having routines in your life, you also embrace change.

Spontaneity makes life interesting, and if you’re anything like me, you probably gravitate toward friends who prefer to make plans a day or two in advance instead of plans one month out.

Because while you enjoy connecting with people, you have introverted tendencies, and you don’t know exactly how you’re going to feel the moment the day comes.

You may need to reset and recharge before interacting with people, and you’re more likely to have an idea of how you feel the closer to the day of your plans.

Still, you are a people pleaser, and boundaries are difficult for you. If you’re not careful, you may sacrifice your own happiness to please those around you.

Sagittarius Zodiac Symbol


You’re ruled by Jupiter, Sagittarius, the planet of luck and fortune. Things just always work out for you. And even if they don’t, you don’t worry about it.

You have a positive mindset and always see the best in things, not because you’re delusional but because you understand that perspective is powerful, and having the right mindset will be beneficial in the long run of life.

And if there’s one thing you can’t outrun, well, then it’s life, isn’t it?

You’re a fire sign, which makes you direct and honest, but as a mutable sign, you’re also flexible and adaptable, meaning you’re open-minded to new experiences while being blunt about whether you enjoy them.

You won’t sacrifice your desires for other people’s, and not everyone appreciates this, but you don’t really care if you’re perceived as unreliable or lofty.

You don’t do well with authority and the same goes for bossy friends.

No, thank you very much. Routines and predictability are your kryptonite, and you will gravitate towards adventures and friends like you who are more open to going with the flow than getting angry if you don’t meet their expectations.

Virgo and Sagittarius in Friendship

It’s your mutual mutability that sets up a positive, fun friendship between you two. Neither of you leans toward routines and schedules and much prefer the spontaneity and plans of the moment.

Sagittarius’s fire sign makes them more direct than the groundedness of Virgo’s earth sign, and it can create issues if you two don’t learn how to communicate.

Virgo tends to consider all options with both their head and heart, while Sagittarius will dive straight in, ready to experience what they want if their heart tells them it’s a good idea–or if someone else says it’s a bad idea (you rebel, you).

Friend Date - Calendar

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

Sag, while you may not be the first person to initiate plans with your friends, you will have no problem saying no if you don’t like what everyone else is doing. It’s the fire in you, the honesty and bluntness, that intimidates Virgo while simultaneously inspiring them.

Virgo, always the people pleaser, has a tendency to go with groupthink, especially early in life, before they’ve had enough experiences to show them why this isn’t always a good thing.

Sagittarius will inspire independence in them, and it’s likely these two will go off on their own and share their own experiences.

However, Virgo’s practicality will eventually find Sagittarius’s carefree nature overwhelming and, at some point, will need a break.

Fortunately, Sagittarius won’t care. They do just fine on their own.

Friend-Fection Icon

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

Virgo, you won’t hold back in your honesty about your feelings, and Sagittarius will respect this about you and understand it.

Sag, you’ve faced issues with friends who’ve found your bluntness abrasive, and you’ll appreciate Virgo’s openness with confiding in their feelings.

However, Virgo, concerned with hurting your feelings, may take a while to get to the point, and although you’ll be willing to listen, Sagittarius, you’re also impatient.

If they don’t cut to the chase, your attention may have already drifted to something more interesting.

Dating Advice Icon

Dating Advice: Send His Name or Send His Social?

Sagittarius, you’re a-okay being single. It’s not that you hate relationships; you just need to date someone who is spontaneous like you.

If you end up with someone you prefer routines and doing the same thing every day, you will get bored quickly and will probably build up more than a little resentment towards this person.

You’re impulsive and need to be with someone who is okay with you suggesting an idea one day and pulling a one-eighty the next.

Fortunately for you, you’ll be able to identify this pretty quickly on your dates, and you’ll have no problem expressing your feelings to both them and your friends.

Virgo, on the other hand, is a secret romantic, wanting love but not wanting to admit it.

Your independence is important to you, after all. Still, your attempt at staying silent won’t last long.

You’re a talker with your friends, and you’ll tell them everything about your prospective partner, including any feelings of excitement you may have.

Sagittarius will enjoy listening to your adventures and will encourage you to date more.

Virgo and Sagittarius in Love

While your friendship has the potential to advance into strong territories, given the right opportunity, love between you two may fall flat if you attempt to fit a round peg into a square hole.

Sagittarius, your fiery nature means you go after the things and the people you want.

Virgo, you’ll struggle with the battle of your head and heart, your logic forcing you to question the validity of your initial crush.

Sagittarius, you’re a bit too impulsive for Virgo’s groundedness, and although you two may attempt to make love work, it’s likely that you, Virgo, will zig what Sagittarius zags.

And this, my friends, is why you two will never fully be on the same page.

First Date Icon

The First Date: Roses or KFC?

The first date will be a fun one between you two. You’re both mutable signs after all, open to new experiences and adventures.

Sagittarius will probably take the lead in planning, but Virgo will enjoy it because Sag’s honesty will be intriguing, the depth of your conversation enticing.

It will be less about what you do together and more about developing a level of comfort in getting to know one another. A second date is sure to follow.

Love Language Icon

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

Trust will be a battle in this relationship.

Sagittarius, you’re too impulsive for Virgo’s grounded nature. While these differences are what make your friendship fun and interesting, they will be the wedge that will eventually divide your relationship.

Virgo, you crave stability more than Sagittarius does, and you will most likely crave quality time and conversation, while Sagittarius would prefer getting out into the world and experiencing new things.

Early on in your relationship, your individualism and independence mean this won’t be an issue, but eventually, it will weigh on you both.

Sagittarius, you’ll want a partner in crime by your side as you explore the world, and Virgo, while you’re happy to go out and experience new things with your Sagittarius partner, you need to return home from time to time to recharge.

You’ll find that while you’re willing to sacrifice your needs for Sagittarius, they’ll be less likely to sit on the couch and watch a movie with you when they’re itching to get outside.

Sexy Time Icon

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

You may struggle to establish a connection in the bedroom, and your initial interactions may be awkward at best.

Neither of you likes taking the initiative when it comes to sex, but you also don’t like being told what to do.

For that reason, it may take some time to get to this stage in your relationship, and when you ultimately do, you’ll find that you have different values about physical intimacy.

Virgo, you’re much more interested in comfort and connection with your partner, while you Sagittarius are inclined to try something new every single time.

One of your stories will finish, and the other, well, will be left hanging on the page.

The Verdict?

Your friendship can be fun, engaging, and spontaneous, and although Sagittarius is likely to be out in the world more than Virgo, when your paths do cross, it will be an enjoyable time.

As lovers, however? Not so much. You’ll never quite click things into place, and although there won’t be any intense negativity, you two will find you’re just too different to make it work.
