Scorpio lives in a world of black and white and does not see the middle ground in most situations. Sagittarius on the other hand, is as free as a bird, always up to something new. Sagittarius is the adventurer, an optimist, an idealist, and a philosopher. Sagittarius is attracted to Scorpio’s passionate and extreme personality, and this may be a strong base for their initial friendship. However, over time, Sagittarius may find Scorpio to be too overbearing or intense for their light-hearted, go-with-the-flow nature.
Scorpio views Sagittarius as a bit of a weird mystery because they are so used to figuring everyone out upon the first few seconds of meeting them. As Scorpio gets to know Sagittarius more, Scorpio realizes that they are extremely radical, progressive, fun-loving, and spontaneous. Sagittarius is not always the most dependable person, however, because they do not feel like following time restraints or set schedules. However, Scorpio can always rely on Sagittarius to make them laugh when they are feeling down. Sagittarius tends to view the glass as half full, and they have a highly contagious sense of humor. Sagittarius helps Scorpio take things more lightly.
Sagittarius is often perplexed by Scorpio’s critical, discriminating, suspicious, and selective personality. Sagittarius is intrigued by how Scorpio is able to focus their attention on one project at a time, while Sagittarius is always distracted, searching for something or someone new. Scorpio is someone who takes loyalty very seriously, in both love and friendship. Scorpio does not have a huge amount of friends, but rather a few select close ones whom they share their life. Therefore, Scorpio may feel frustrated when they make Sagittarius a priority, and Sagittarius chooses to mingle with some of their many other friends. This can be very disheartening and disappointing for Scorpio, as Scorpio seems to always be the one giving more in the relationship. This may not actually be the case, but this is the impression Scorpio may receive from Sagittarius — as though they are the most emotionally invested. Sagittarius prefers to show their commitment to the relationship through spontaneous acts of kindness and by taking Scorpio on fun and spontaneous outings.
The key to overcoming this obstacle is to have open and respectful communication on this topic. Sagittarius will likely say that having freedom is their utmost priority, and even if it seems like they are off somewhere, Sagittarius will always come back to Scorpio if she trusts him. But Scorpio can sometimes be tired of waiting. The solution for Scorpio would be to learn the art of detachment and not attempt to always get Sagittarius to stick by their side, but to simply express their desire for Sagittarius’ presence and patiently observe their response.
The greatest threat to a successful partnership is if either of you fails to be truthful with one another, and/or if you impose on one another’s freedom. Sagittarius in particular dislikes clingy people, and Scorpio dislikes people who are too nosey. You must build trust between both of you, and learn to appreciate distance and time apart because it will make you appreciate the bond you have rather than become resentful. Despite your differences, you have so much to learn from each other if you’re willing to compromise & accept what makes you both so unique.
