At first glance, Virgo and Sagittarius might seem like they’re opposites, but they’ve got a lot in common, which makes them pretty compatible. With the right amount of mutual support, a Virgo man and Sagittarius woman complement each other well, creating a close relationship that moves forward and accomplishes goals.

The Basics

Sagittarius is the adventurer, learner, comedian, and athlete who prefers flexibility when it comes to daily schedules. “Independent” is a term you hear a lot when someone describes a Sagittarius, and this is especially true for women who have this sun sign.

No matter what other influences Ms. Sag has in her chart, she’ll display basic archer characteristics in one form or another. She may be a perpetual student, taking night courses even while working full-time, or she could be the member of your friend group who is always coming up with wackadoodle punchlines. And even if she doesn’t openly exhibit any of these tendencies, look at the books she reads or the movies she watches. Chances are that, even if she’s somehow a total homebody, she’ll have plenty of international films and travel guides lurking around.

Virgo, on the other hand, is the detailed planner, communicator, health nut, and mediator (to an extent). If you want a budget or if you want a plan of action, this is the sign to contact. A Virgo man might not be as businesslike as a Capricorn, but he’ll spot the problems in a plan and create a task list that will iron out even the smallest issues.

A Virgo can have a lot of fun, but this is the man with a plan who will do his best to carry out each step. He’s not an autocrat and he can handle some flexibility. But he’s the one who will find the most efficient way to renovate a house to minimize the amount of post-renovation cleaning needed. He’s the one who will map out the sightseeing route that will maximize the number of places you can see. And if that Virgo actually prefers to leave schedules open and not sweat the small stuff (which is highly unlikely, but run with this for a moment), you’ll likely find him reading up on the latest health news.

One Really Awesome Shared Quality

Despite the planning and the maximizing and the detailing, Virgo is actually a mutable sign – and so is Sagittarius. Mutable signs are the ones who can deal with changes in plans and let things unfold. Mutable-sign people can still be thrown off track if something doesn’t work out, but overall, those changes aren’t that frustrating for them because they can usually think up an alternative.

Complementing Characteristics

A nice perk that occurs when a Virgo man and Sagittarius woman partner up is that the good characteristics of one can have a beneficial effect on the not-so-good characteristics of the other.

For example, Virgo is very good with monetary concerns, keeping emergency savings on hand and setting up a stable financial future. Sagittarius can also be quite good with money, of course, but her impulsive nature can add some instability if she hasn’t learned to control that aspect. Virgo can help Sagittarius tone down or avoid that instability. And Sagittarius can use her eye for public relations and sense of humor to polish up Virgo’s plans and presentations, which may be on the dry side.

Most importantly, Virgo can create a plan that helps Sag move forward more effectively, and Sag can give Virgo a vital nudge if he gets mired in the details and freezes. For instance, if these two try to remodel a home, Sag might not have the most organized plan at first, but Virgo can quickly decipher which tasks need to be done at the beginning and which should be done later.

But Virgo may also find that there is always one more thing that needs to be done first, creating a paralyzing loop in which any step seems like it will ruin the plan. Sag can break that loop quickly, finding the easiest things to do and getting them done, thus giving Virgo the breathing room he needs to see his plans in a new light.

Where They Really Shine

With messenger and communicator Mercury ruling Virgo and publisher/broadcaster/philosopher Jupiter ruling Sagittarius, these two can talk. They are honest with each other and try to tell it like it is. (Sag does have a foot-in-mouth tendency but, luckily, Virgo is known for being even-keeled and his desire for detail helps straighten out any misunderstandings quickly.)

Where They Need Work

The big issue for a Virgo man and Sagittarius woman is the frustration that the two can feel regarding planning and impulse. Both are mutable, but if other chart factors make that Virgo very exact or that Sagittarius a super-free spirit, that’s a big gulf to bridge. Virgo needs to understand Sagittarius’ need for flexibility, and Sagittarius needs to respect Virgo’s need for more consistency. Too many changes or repeated staunch unwillingness to reconsider a route won’t be the best for these two.

What These Relationships Might Be Like

Virgo men and Sagittarius women who are business partners should do well. Both can set mutual goals and find ways to balance Sag’s preferred fast pace with Virgo’s preferred slower pace. Sagittarius can take on the more public face of the pair or, if Sag is an introvert, she can still get the company’s media presentations ready and looking good. Virgo can take over the nitty-gritty planning, providing the practical backbone of the partnership.

If the two are friends, they’d make excellent workout partners, with Sagittarius’ enthusiasm for athletics and Virgo’s love of health blending very nicely. These two could also start a blog, maybe about nutrition; both would be straightforward writers who would pour over studies to find the real results. When these two plan to see each other, though, it might be a good idea to plan the meeting time ahead and decide on what to do once both are actually together.

And if the two are lovers? Honesty and trust will be big with these two, which is great. But a Sagittarius woman may end up wanting to be a bit more adventurous than her Virgo man in bed. Virgo may also be a bit smothering, paying too much attention to his Sagittarius partner, who can be notoriously suspicious of commitment. Respect Virgo’s limits, Sag, and Virgo, respect Sag’s need for personal space.

After All Is Said and Done

The full charts of these two are going to be very helpful. Extra Virgo aspects or a Virgo ascendant, moon, or planet placement in the Sag chart will help Sag better understand why Virgo does what he does, and vice versa. Virgo charts with heavy Sagittarius influence will be better able to go along with Sag’s need for speed. The two may want to get an astrology reading, though they shouldn’t worry if their charts aren’t full of corresponding factors. With care, these two have a good chance of making it.
