Sagittarius and Pisces is one of the harder zodiac pairings to make work. The very low scores represent the initial compatibility of this match, however you are both flexible enough to make this work, and if you succeed the scores would be much higher.
If you can both adapt to the others style this is a relationship which will improve steadily over time, and eventually rival any other match. The low scores then represent a high initial challenge, and not a long term pessimistic view.
These scores show the averages for data collected from my clients over the past 20 years. It's important to note however that individual relationships vary enormously. This is a summarized picture, a real compatibility reading is needed to judge a real relationship. It's also worth noting that Soulmates can be found in any sun sign match, even those which are statistically likely to have low compatibility.
This article is in two halves, the first is written from the viewpoint of the Sagittarius man or Sagittarius woman, and the second is written from the viewpoint of the Pisces man or Pisces woman.
It's likely you will find this partner very physically attractive, sexually appealing, and perhaps a little mysterious.
You both tend to be very philosophical people, though you're likely to have very different viewpoints of most subjects. This can make for some fascinating early conversations.
You're both very flexible and adaptable, and you both like a reasonable amount of personal space in a relationship. This match in itself gives the relationship a fairly solid foundation of mutual tolerance.
Your personalities however are very different, and this will probably be apparent within minutes if not hours.
You're very self confident - direct, bold and spontaneous. By comparison your partner is very reserved and humble..
When it comes to conversation you're bold, blunt and sometimes more interested in speaking the truth than sparing someone's feelings or ego, whereas your Pisces is a lot more inclined to say what's kind or friendly. They may come to find you harsh or even hurtful at times due to this.
You both can be impractical, though in different ways. You're a doer while your partner is a dreamer. You'll sometimes jump without looking, whereas your Pisces will dream about jumping.
In all areas you're very outgoing, spontaneous and adventurous, whereas your Pisces is much more conservative and cautious.
It's likely you'll come to admire your partners self sacrificing and caring attitude, just as your Pisces will come to admire your self confidence and zest for life.
So far these differences make for an interesting relationship where you each bring different strengths to the team.
The longer term challenges in this relationship revolve around emotional differences. Pisces likes a high level of emotional connection, and may find you distant or lacking in this area, perhaps feeling that you don't take their feelings seriously.
Meanwhile, you're likely to feel that your partner is too sensitive, sometimes confusing and often depressing. Pisces can be fairly self-pitying, especially when they aren't secure in a relationship, and your outgoing and sometimes flirtatious personality wont help to make them secure. This is a partner who sometimes lacks self confidence, so complimenting them often is important.
In short, you may find this partner very emotionally needy at times, while they may come to see you as selfish or reckless.
The reality is that you're just too different to see eye to eye without making a conscious effort to understand each other and compromise.
As in other areas your partner will view this as you not taking their feelings seriously, and this difference will frustrate both of you unless you each make an effort to adapt and compromise.
It's important to note however that we're looking only at sun signs here. There are many other planets which can have an equal or greater effect on someone's personality. Makes sense, as ultimately everyone is of course unique. Generalizing too far based just on sun signs can therefore be misleading.
To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results.
This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information: everything from how they view you, how to turn them on, how to avoid arguments with them etc. If you would like to explore this further please see the compatibility readings page.
What makes this relationship particularly challenging is that on the surface you will like and admire each others strengths a lot, and there's likely to be some solid physical attraction.
You're both very adaptable people, so it looks like everything should work. Your personalities however are very different, and will sometimes bring out the worst in each other.
One of the roots of the problems with a Pisces Sagittarius match is your partners fanatical need to be honest and direct, combined with your sensitivity and need for an emotional connection.
You're a dreamer while this partner is a doer, and you may come to see them as uncaring or even hurtful. This is a by-product of their directness and not intended to be offensive.
Your Sagittarius is a partner who likes excitement and challenge. They like to grab life with both hands and shake it, enjoying acting on impulse, and crossing bridges as they come to them. In comparison you're very conservative, and tend to worry about the future a lot more. You may come to view this partner as reckless, while wondering how they can remain so carefree and unaffected!
Similarly this is a partner who likes socializing, often in preference to quality one on one time. You may again find this hurtful at times, and it's likely you'll feel the relationship lacks the level of intimacy you might prefer. As in other areas compromise is the key, though it can be difficult (especially for your partner) to always meet you in the middle on such fundamental issues.
Your partner is likely to be very wary of making a commitment, and this added to the above factors wont give you the level of security you like from a partner. Meanwhile, your emotions are likely to confuse and confound your Sagittarius.
Overall it's likely that this is a partner who will make you feel neglected and jealous fairly early in the relationship, and that will get worse and not better over time unless an effort is made to understand each other and compromise.
Sagittarius is a caring sign, but typically in a hands on manner, more than an emotional one - so just "trying harder" often wont help and lead only to frustration - unless they know exactly how and where to try.
While the physical side is probably great, your Sagittarius is a partner who basically takes sex fairly lightly, and doesn't have the need for such a large emotional component. Again, understanding each others needs can go a long way to compromising successfully.
So is this article conclusive? No! This article is based only on sun sign interaction. In order to provide a lot of people with information it's a convenient and fast way to generalize, but it's far from conclusive at this broad level.
