Ruled by Jupiter (Sagittarius) and Uranus (Aquarius), both are seers and creators, with have a knack for being at the head of the curve. They share a love of experimenting, and are spontaneous -- oh, the places you'll go!

On first dates, there's a light, friendly atmosphere. Both are friend signs of the Zodiac, and this can be the basis for an enduring affair.

Sagittarius in Love is restless, freedom-loving and adventurous.

Aquarius in Love is solitary and an extrovert, and full of shocks and surprises.

There's so much to learn about and experience, and their life gets off to an adventurous start. A shared love of travel, exotic cuisines, and cutting edge culture keeps them on the go. Both get swept up in ideas and visions, and there's always more out there to ponder and discuss.

They're free to venture out of bounds in conversation, because neither will judge. The sparks for this romance often begin in the mind, and from the mental rapport they create.

While Aquarius can be cool and glamorous, the Archer gets fired up and is more physical. Sadge gets Aquarius moving, and helps them be in the moment of pure, uncomplicated fun. Both are experimental in the bedroom, where things never fall into routine.

Sagittarius brings athletic endurance, and Aquarius introduces surprises to the mix.

Of the two, Aquarius is more likely to have a conceptual approach to sex, with ideas for games or scenarios.

Sagittarius brings an uninhibited sense of play, a gymnastic ability, and the willingness to try anything once. They may even invite other lovers in to join them, or look at open relationship kinds of arrangements.

With an open door, both feel more at home, even if they never intend to roam.

Freestyle Love

In relationship, their evolving natures keeps it loose and fresh. There's plenty of space, which both need, but can also feel too casual for the long haul. Each has a built-in loyalty to their own personal evolution, along with an extroverted personality. This can cause them to stray outside the relationship, in search of new experiences.

They'll need to put their innovative minds to the notion of commitment, and come up with a model that works for them. There may be something unusual about their relationship, like being bicoastal, bisexual or open, that makes it seem progressive.

As a couple, they're social and throw great parties. They meld together two networks of people, enlarging their own sphere ever wider. Their compassion and sense of justice might lead them to fight for movements or causes. To be sure, they're up on the latest trends, often on a global scale. Their home decor could be an eclectic, but colorful collection of souvenirs from their travels.

Both have eyes fixed on the horizon, and generally share an optimistic outlook. Aquarius is a fixed sign, with more sustained mental focus, which can rub off on Sagittarius in a positive way.

The quick-changing, bright Sagittarius gets great feedback from the Waterbearer about bringing their great ideas to form. Aquarius tends to see connections that others don't, and which will widen the Sadge's horizons even further.

If they break up, there's a chance of remaining friends. And if they stay together, it'll no doubt be one exciting, soul-enriching journey.

Sagittarius and Aquarius Love Story

Lost Lovers

"I'm an aquarius woman who's experienced a Sagittarius and I'll say that it was a one of my best and worst relationships. The good thing is, I've learned so much of myself from being with him. The way he could read me was just amazing! He knew things about me that I didn't even know of. But, we've had many spats, too many to count actually. He was very into the "open relationship" types and it scared me, and I was right, he was not as faithful as I wanted him to be. It took my a few months to finally move on, but his love will always be in my heart. It's a relationship that I don't regret but wish I could have changed."
