Aries and Sagittarius have an instant rapport. There's a chance of love at first sight for these two fire signs.

Both like to be constantly challenged, and this means a lot of crazy dates together. They bring together that game truth or dare, with risk and bold candor being driving forces.

There could be travel adventures, creative collaboration and many nights on the town. It's a high-energy combo, and that includes the antics in the bedroom.

Aries admires the free-spirited Sagittarius, and this keeps the Ram happily in pursuit. Sagittarius handles the Aries bluster playfully and shoots back their zingers. Sagittarius in love is a sparring and traveling partner.

Both are direct, which keeps it fresh, but can lead to trading barbs, lots of arguments. If Aries has to be right, the philosophical (and sometimes dogmatic) Archer feels backed into a mental corner. Sagittarius likes free conversation and has trouble with Aries need to 'win' debates.

Aries comes across as full of themselves, but the Archer is not intimidated and gives back as good as they get. Aries in love tests a potential partner, and continuously provokes reactions.

The sparring can be electric since both Aries and Sagittarius are as direct as they come. The pair of them is natural creative collaborators.

Both have sharp intellects and can inspire each other to greater heights. They're two signs that could talk into the night, and get physical with their conversation, like Italians, gesturing and acting out their ideas.

Friend to All or One

Further, into a relationship, Aries may want to keep Sagittarius to themselves and be jealous of the many friends of the Archer. Both are flirty, but even in a committed bond, there's a part of the Archer that remains unattainable, and this can be unsettling to the conquering Aries nature.

Sagittarius may not be able to give Aries the attention and allegiance they need. A possessive Aries makes the Sagittarius feel like a captive when all they want to do is roam free. This works with a foundation of respect and trust, where freedom exists, but there's an understanding of commitment.

It helps when Aries and Sagittarius have a shared purpose, like a creative collaboration, an example is raising children, of course. They like to go beyond known limits and will be unhappy in a relationship that gets bogged down in routine.

  • Upside: Fast friends; adventurous and active; strong sex drives; explorers who seek challenge; affectionate; friendly; big social circle.
  • Downside: Quick to move on; Aries instinct to be dominant clashes with Sagittarius' love of freedom; hot tempers; burn out; wandering eyes.
  • Quality and Element: Cardinal Fire (Aries) and Mutable Fire (Sagittarius)

Aries and Sagittarius Love Story

Reader (Aries Woman) writes: "I've noticed that in my adventures with Sag men, I am the pawn that they chase after. I'm not sure if it's just the thrill of the chase, but they do flock to me. I have an instant attraction to Sag men. They have this spark, this amazing personality that just allows me to let loose and be free in my character. We have the same sense of humor, and we find joy in the same things. The most current relationship with a Sag man is amazing. It's like someone turned on a light and it won't go off. My mind won't escape thoughts of him. But, he is equally obsessed. I feel our attraction was instantaneous for both of us. Sagittarius men are the best for Aries women. We can dominate them in bed, and they take it like champs. They also equally put out some dominance. If you keep in mind you're both freaks in bed you won't feel jealousy or feel the need to look outside the relationship. Try threesomes. They help everyone."
