Sagittarius Man and Scorpio Woman Compatibility

Famous Scorpio-Sagittarius Couples:

Kate Capshaw and Steven Spielberg, Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis, Marlo Thomas and Phil Donahue.

When two strong truth-seeking, truth-telling, receptive and upright people come together to live a righteous life, one can only imagine the kind of conversation these two people have when they are alone together.  A Sagittarius man with a Scorpio woman is like combining a psychiatrist and a philosopher together in one person.  Scorpio snoops out all the secrets, and Sagittarius reveals insight and profundities.  Should they put their considerable talents together in marriage, they are bound to accomplish great things because of the intelligence and good instincts they discover together.  The Scorpio woman uses eros to work her magic while the Sagittarius male uses logos to do the same.  Where logos and eros combine, there is light, and life, and truth.  Ask St. John.  There is a true profundity to their connection.  Likely they have never met anyone like each other.  There are few things they can’t discuss in depth and the scope of their talents will likely leave you saying, “Jack of All Trades and Master of All.”

How to Attract a Scorpio Woman as a Sagittarius Man:

See if you can walk up to her without tripping over your own feet.  If you do, go ahead and laugh out loud.  She’ll love your honesty.  Most Scorpios believe in “love at first sight.”  If she looks in your eyes and holds your gaze, you know it’s the real thing.  From then on, it’s a matter of treating her with dignity and reserve.  Don’t be too palsy too soon.  Unlike you, she enjoys playing the gender roles in courtship and would enjoy being treated like a lady, not a pal.  She may want to have sex with you right away — being an all or nothing at all type person — but we suggest for your own sake that you wait for the rest of the relationship to ripen.  We have our reasons for saying this.

How to Attract a Sagittarius Man as a Scorpio Woman:

Try not to turn him to stone with what you think is a casual glance.  Mask some of your passion to surprise him later.  We know that you know what you want the minute you see it.  We know that you are very discriminating.  We know that when you sleep with a guy on the first date and tell him, “I usually don’t do this,” you mean it, but he doesn’t, and he won’t, so don’t risk it.  Follow the Rules.

Degree of Romance:

This relationship gets on higher ground than romance very quickly.  A few flowers at the beginning will do fine; then move on to more sincere expressions of affection and respect.  Do things that indicate your awesome level of awareness and your good nature as a human being instead of the trappings of sentimental romance.

Degree of Passion:

Scorpio is one sign that can really get the passion out of Sagittarius.  Sagittarius is a fire sign, but usually the fire is directed at an ideal rather than at an individual.   The erotic nature of the Scorpio woman allows him to focus for once on another human being and to draw close to the fire as it were.  The passion is likely to last the length of the relationship if you take your time before sleeping together in the beginning (about 3 months).

Degree of Friendship:

These two can be serious friends.  Together they are trustworthy and honestly available for one another to an exceptional degree.  They really honor the space of relating to one another and treasure the climate of integrity they nurture together.  They are unique in the zodiac in being able to talk about the mundane and the elated in life with equal enthusiasm and experience.  Friends like this are hard to find.

Degree of Marriage:

These two make a fantastic marriage due to the desire and ability of each of them to really know another human being.  Sagittarius is able to open Scorpio up to an unusual degree while Scorpio has the ability to merge and deepen the relationship.  They are likely to win and keep each other’s trust for a lifetime.  Neither one is a game player.  Sagittarius quickly passes all of Scorpio’s nasty little tests, so that area is laid to rest as well.

Progression of Relationship:

They are likely to get involved more quickly than they want to, in spite of a normal reserve and dignity.  This is probably because they will talk their heads off with one another about a whole range of subjects they aren’t usually able to discuss with anyone else.  They may find themselves becoming indispensable to one another as sounding boards and feedback loops.  They particularly like the fact that each one holds the other to high ground.  The level of morality and ethics and integrity is really stellar.


One is transported to the realm of the gods and goddesses contemplating what sex must be like between these two.  There is the capability of merging body, soul, and spirit, which uplifts both parties and makes two far better than one.  There is an aspect of expansion and “travel” involved in their sexuality.  Each one is able to go farther in experiencing the higerh realms through the alchemical merging of their consciousnesses so that sex becomes a mysterious initiation into a sacred rite de passage. Everything that they do together sexually is highly symbolic of resurrection and regeneration.

When It’s Over:

It’s not likely to end but if it should end, it will be rather cataclysmic.  Scorpio will take control, which means she will be cruel to be kind, while Sagittarius may not love again.  Try to keep the love alive; it’s worth it, you two.

  1. Im a scorpio female and i have all the character traits that my zodiac says about it. My first boyfriend was a sagittarian. He was even my first love and kiss. Unfortunately, we broke up. Until now, I still hope that we would be together again believing that what was posted above about our compatibility might be true.

  2. I’m a Scorpio female with ALL of the true tendencies that come with being born under this sign, the emotions, the intensity, the “love at first sight” issue, the nurturing personality, “need my space,” the jealousy, suspicion – the whole nine yards! And I’ve met the most amazing Sag who has lit the fire under my feet. He’s a gentleman personified, attentive, soulful, very spiritual and drama free. We’ve known one another since the beginning of August and talk by phone/chat online every day. We’re meeting for our first date on 10/25, we’re taking “baby steps” and going with the flow. I must say that the chemistry is already being felt. I just want to thank you so much for this positive analysis because I felt we were doomed before we started reading from other compatibility sites. This gives me hope because it feels so right. Will keep you posted.

  3. This is quite weird. I LOVE what you have said about scorps and sags.
    The wierd thing is that my mom is a scorpio and my dad is a sag. They have the WORST relationship ever. Arguing everyday and even after my mom gives him her all, he still finds something to be negative about. I’m not lying, every single day they have an argument. Like, he loves to argue. He even argues when she says she doesn’t feel like arguing anymore! >:(

    On the other hand, I’m a female scorpio and i have a male sag friend. I was sooo scared to talk to him when i first saw him and liked him (before i even knew he was a sag), but he made me feel comfortable. I’d always try to hide from him because he knew i liked him, and he already had a girlfriend. But he wouldn’t let me hide. Anyway, by the third day of our new friendship we were already having these awesome conversations about everything.
    When i found out he was a sag, i kind of got scared off because i always read that scorpios and sags weren’t compatible and of course, i looked at how AWFUL my parents relationship was going!
    But me and my sag are wonderful. He’s nothing like my dad! He’s positive about everything and doesn’t like when i say i hate something. And he doesn’t like when i don’t tell him what i’m thinking. lol But thats it. It’s weird because i’m really trying to stay umemotional about us, but he’s really into me.

  4. does this also apply to a scorpio sun/scorpio rising/venus sag (me), with a sag sun/sag rising/venus scorpio (him)? or just with sun signs only?

  5. I am considering to talk to a sag guy who my friend told me is staring me down!! I am a scorpion lady who knows what she wants and I am not sure how to look at him without turning him into stone. Any suggestions from the sag guys? What does a scorp girl need to do in order to get a sag guy to approach her…..thanks! Much Love Nancy <3

  6. Im scorpio woman dating a sagittarius man and this description could not be any more true..yes we hjave our ups and downs but no matter the situation we always seem to end up in each others arms when the day is thru so i would definitely recommend this compatible match

  7. @sunshower YEs, this can be a really powerful combination. Good luck!

  8. this is the first sensible site I’ve ever seen that said a lot of positive things about this pair. I’ve been in correspondence with this sadge guy for more than 2 months now and I can say that nancy was very accurate with the feeling that each of us get when we talk. i was in confusion until i read this and realized what we are.
    thanks much, nancy! =)

  9. @Michelle I need the date, time and birth and the charge is $350

  10. Hi Nancy, what info. do you need for a personal reading? I am a Scrop woman who just had her Sag man break up with her (well kind of….) It was 4 months ago, but we still talk everyday, have a rather odd living arrangement, (or I think my Scorp pride would have made me hit the road by now!) Glad I didn’t…I think…. He attempted to start a relationship with an Aries woman and was shot down cold. Now he seems interested in investing his spare..haha..time with me. Not sure if it’s because of real emotions or nothing better is on the line right now. Always hard to tell… I a personal reading would give some insight as to wether or not we are afflicted beyond repair or if there is enough harmonious components to expend the energy to heal, forgive and attempt to move forward. At this point I am hurt beyond words that he put so much effort, so quickly into another woman, with more vigor than he ever did with me I might add… Still, at 42 I feel I have finally found my soulmate….

  11. @bjorneeffsteen Let’s do a one on one soon! I mention it because it’s the Scorp page.

  12. bjorneffsteenAugust 17, 2010 at 8:48 pm

    Nancy, you mention you’re “scorp rising”–is that because you place more relative importance on the ascendant sign, or because this is the Scorp page? Some day I plan to do a personal one w/ you–but I’m still educating myself. I’m fascinated that I’m really, really, monogamous, and I’m a Sagittarius. I guess it’s becuase I’m 12/20 (cusp of Cap) plus a taurus rising and moon in Cap. I’m beginning to think I’m not much of a Sagittarian at all because of this! At least w/ the flaky/promiscuity part of the Sadge, but the rest seems to apply. Thanks for such an awesome site.

  13. @Brian Thanks for he thumbs up, Brian. It’s a GREAT match. Go for it!

  14. Hi, Thank you Nancy! I do but I don’t get it, why seemingly most other astrologers/astrology sites/astrology books are hung up on giving doom and gloom reports on the zodiacal match ups! You gave the best report by far that I’ve heard on Sag and Sco! I’m a sag male who recently met a Sco female who I feel a strong interest in and identify with everything you said in your post!

  15. I’m a scorpio woman who unfortunately had the more negative sagittarian experience. I think we moved too quickly. We had been friends for almost a decade and then we dated for about six months and decided we were perfect for each other and got married. He was very in love with his independence, which triggered my scorp paranoia/jealousy. We ended badly. We have a Virgo child, but they never see one another, because My ex-sag never comes around.
    Good luck to you other Scorps,. When it was good, it was amazing, but I advise you to move slowly.
    Great Blog Nancy. Thanks!

  16. Here’s my sad story: I met a Scorpio girl in 1990 and everything was pretty much as described by Nancy. First thing I’ve seen on the net like it. We dated, cohabited, and finally married after 6 years. She was my 2nd wife, and we were always like soul-mates though it was touch-and-go several times. I got mixed up in an affair which complicated things (I had always been faithful up to this point) and after 20 years, I was going to move out. She committed suicide. I’m severely heartbroken about her, though my relationship with another Sag is bliss and probably should have been my first choice (Jr. High crush). Still crying every day after a year and a half. It’s a crazy life. How about all of that, Nancy? Thanks for your insight.

  17. miss-bellJuly 30, 2010 at 6:43 am

    Iwas really glad to see a positive outlook on this match for a change I’m a scorp and my honeys a sag. Like everyone says things with him just clicked from day one. I am a little curious of your thoughts though I’m fully aware that a styfling enviornment isn’t good for anyone no matter the sign but what type of reaction do you think this could have for a sag male being that their so freedom oriented any thoughts would be helpful thanks 🙂

  18. Miss_YanzaJuly 9, 2010 at 7:50 am

    Im a scorpion girl and i dated a sag guy. It was a hurtful relationship for me. Maybe it was because we had sex the first time we met(stupid i knw). The sex was great but after 3weeks of great sex i realised that all he wanted was sex,fun and good times with no strings attached. I wanted it to be serious,but it was obvious to me that he didn’t. I ended it before i suffered any longer,it took me around 5-6 months before i fully got over it. Anyways i am staying far away from sag males forever. But your still awesome Nancy. Much love,oh and i haven’t had sex with any other guy since him last year. I want to wait for the right guy with good intentions.

  19. I’m a Scorpio girl and I loved this take on a Scorp and Sag relationship! I met my boyfriend 4 years ago at a movie theater we worked at and I swear after the first time we had a conversation we were instant friends! the friendship happened so fast that I didn’t even realize I was falling for him romantically until I started getting the feeling from him that he was interested in being more than friends. but it’s so true about moving fast because it only took 8 months after we officially started dating that we moved in together. this is the best love that I’ve ever felt and feel completely confident that together we can weather any storm and our love will stand the test of time.

  20. Im A Scorpio women and i met a Sag 2 years ago, it seemed like when i first saw him it clicked. And the first night we had so much fun, we became friends, and i felt so comfortable around him, but it also felt like there was this thing in my mind egging me to go with him. I dated other guys when we’re friends each time a break-up or a death he was there. And i remember the 1 year mark of being friends, i knew we had a thing , way more than friendship! And now we’re going together, and i feel like he knows so much about me that no one else does, he gets me like right away. It feels amazing when hes around, but at the same time, it feels like things are going so fast. This is the first article i read that actually said positive things about this match, and i had an awesome time reading it. Thank You, i even showed it to Him! :)!

  21. ok, i am not one of those who wud post comment..private, means private (being a scorpion girl )..but too moved by your insight, nancy..i am involved with a sag for 4 years now..a very special bond, better than what i could have ever dreamed all those who visit this page my best wishes and i really think there is a unique relationship compatibilty between these signs..thanks Nancy

  22. i like the friendship part cuz my true best friend is a sag. boy i feel so comfrotable talking to him i can tell him most of everything uère the first site telling me that our friendship is awesome an d i do beleive that its already awesome 1 year past knowing him and i think it wa like thousands of years no1 could ever imagine how much i love my sag friend really he is my life..and the 2 o f us just feel calm while talking to each other…..luv u my friend..<3<3

  23. Really good stuff, full-blown Sag here and I’m reaaaally interested in a beautiful Scorpio girl. After a somewhat tumultuous relationship with a Pisces I’m quite fascinated with astrology as it pertains to relationship compatibility.

    The thing about a Sag guy being DRAWN to this sign is freaking me out as typically I could care less one way or another what the opposite sex’s opinion is of me– gorgeous or not. This time however, I care quite a bit. I’m taking every piece of advice to heart given here, thanks.

  24. Bjorn EffsteenMay 25, 2010 at 2:32 am

    This one surprises me. I’m a Sagittarius man, and I’ve never dated a Scorpio. In fact, every woman who ever acknowledged herself as a Scorpio thus far (most examples have been the workplace) to me seemed totally annoying, neurotic if not outright NUTS. But going forward I will attempt to keep an open mind. Today I discovered this site/blog. I like it.

  25. Rubbish darling Nancy. For a sagittarius male, Scorpio female is the worst nightmare. Sagi guy flirts and scorp woman is vindictive. They never get along right from the beginning are victims of lies and slander against each other. Nobody said the scorpio woman is dignified. Sneaky yes, dignified no.
    Sagi guy.

  26. @LCM I wish you all the happiness in the world.

  27. Great article, you seem very wise.
    What sign are you?

  28. Wow! I am very impressed Nancy. You hit the nail right on the head. I was wondering if I was losing my mind, feeling the passion overflowing into my spiritual realms when I met this Sag. I am also a Scorpio, tried and true. I have never experienced such a great connection with anyone else in my life. It’s totally cosmic and blows my mind. Thank you for validating the extasy I feel with him. Who knew two people could really be such soul mates. When I first looked in his eyes, I knew beyond a doubt, but then when he kissed me, he sealed our fate.

  29. @kilee Yes! Move on!

  30. I’m seeing r I don’t knw a sag man..he is currently converting to religion..I’m going silently mad..everthing is perfect btwn us and he wont submit to it! I’m giving up…long story.. thanks the scorpio girl

  31. I wouldn’t know who to turn to when i was obsessed with this sagittarius guy because nobody can describe this feeling into words. He’s all i need! So true, so fun & easy going, not wearing fake plastic mask to attract a girl. I admire our differences. I even gave him a love letter. Yeahhh, wth. He didn’t reply though but i know he likes me though cause of our past sms. I wished we could have worked out, but my love for him remained sealed. “When there’s gain there’s always pain” – a quote for sag man and scorpio woman

  32. @mandy
    He would probably say the same thing!!

  33. so glad to read your blog..! I think that the sag guy I know is always there to help and support when you need it. I’m married and helplessly in love with a single sag man. not so sure where this friendship will lead to or we would dare to take the risk, but I found him as the most compatible partner to talk to, affectionate, tender, respectful and supportive. I found an equal partner to talk about work, life, music, travel and many more..

  34. sc0rpiongirlMarch 22, 2010 at 3:53 pm

    Oh, I should mention that I divorced the Sag after trying to make it work for 3 yrs. And I don’t think I would like to try another Sag :P.

  35. sc0rpiongirlMarch 22, 2010 at 3:51 pm

    I am a Scorp married to a Sag for about 3 yrs. It was NOT at all like what you said…from personality and intimacy or almost every perspective we were NOT compatible. I am a typical Scorpion girl, he’s totally flat and negative most of the time, although he is a good man and loyal, cares about the family but he never give me the type of attention, passion and love that a Scorp craves for. I tried and it didn’t work. He liked to joke about things that I care and think serious about, which only hurt and enrage me. Recently a Sag man pursued me and it would seem pretty much the similar style. I don’t think Scorpio is compatible with Sag at all although I know rising sign and moon sign would make it somehow different – which is why I think someone else who posted earlier said they have a wonderful relationship.

    BTW, I enjoy reading your blog although some of the articles I found disagreeing with. 😛 Thank you for sharing.

    From my experiences, I found that as a Scorp girl, the most exciting, compatible and match-mad-in-heaven relationship I have is with Cancer (from past relationship and current ones out of different ones I experienced) – either intellectually, physically and spiritually.

  36. Just want to drop some lines about your blog, thank God someone write something good about Scopr-Sagitt! I am so glad to find it, the other webs just said it is an impossible thing to handle, but finally I see a tiny light more close to how my relationship with my Sagit boyfriend looks like…
    Somehow I am still very scorpious..but have hope and I know it is going to work! What about this thing of Sags loving the beauty? What does Elizabeth means with “I have had to accept that he admires beauty and he has had to learn to appreciate it outside of my awareness”?
    Well, leave a Sag breath and will eat from your hands…read once..
    Thanks again, and sure I will recommend this site!

  37. its good to read this. because it settles all my doubts.

    i have been obsessed with a sag for years thinking that we would be good for each other. but recently he’s become involved with a scorpio woman. i was doubtful at first but this article helped me to realize that he has found his soul mate.

    it sucks but its bittersweet because no matter how much i would have loved for things to have worked out between us, all i want is for him to be happy.

  38. Yes, this is one of the great pairs in the zodiac.

  39. I am a Scorpio woman married to a Sag man for 3 1/2 years. We dated for 4 years before moving in together and then marrying after living together for 6 months. The minute I locked eyes with him I knew that he was my life partner. Everything that you stated above defines our relationship. I love him deeply and he loves me equally. Sex is better than I ever dreamed it could be and we seem to be able to lift each other in ways that seem to never be for a man and woman. It is the best relationship that I have ever been involved in. I have had to accept that he admires beauty and he has had to learn to appreciate it outside of my awareness, which works for me. He makes me the center of his universe anytime that we are with others and I feel like a million bucks even when I know I don’t. We have an honesty that one would never understand between a man and woman. His friends do not understand him and his new ways. I saw it in him the first time we went to dinner.

  40. Thanks, Lauren, and best of luck with your Scorp.

  41. I wanted to say that I really enjoyed your article. I just started dating a male sag and it was the most amazing two dates i’ve ever had. I was afraid of my feelings but this really put things into perspective. Take it slow and be happy with what is. 🙂

    thank you again. I have recommended you to tons of people already 🙂

  42. Scorp RIsing

  43. Nancy what is your astrological sign ?

  44. Polly, Your comment needs to be developped. Its not constructive.
    maybe You have been unlucky.
    But a scorp female in love can be everything but can not be mean with the one she loves.

  45. U r soooo right about sag and scorp I have never felt this way about anyone in my life not even my husband. And he is a Virgo I feel so bad because even though I don’t speak to the sag I still feel connected to him y is this so someone help me answer this I feel like he is my soulmate….

  46. Um, yeah, I can step over someone’s feelings at times, sometimes people are easy going, humurous, and generous and sometimes they’re scorpio females. And you feel the malice.

  47. Thanks for spreading the word “Scorp”!!

  48. Thanks for the positive feedback and for stopping by the site. Please tell a friend!

  49. sahiba grewalOctober 15, 2009 at 5:29 pm

    this is soo true… im a scorpio woman afraid of falling in love with a sagittarius man. Thinhs can go so fast, n its so hard to take it slow n just being friends, especialy after the fact i like him sooooo much, n that evrytym i leet him go, he comes runing after me!!! n i sstil want to kn ow him sooo much more butr im afraid of losing him. Anyhow, thanks for the awsum perspectiv as others normaly say its hard o work outn i think its the best thing. lol.

  50. Nancy u simply rock !
    not many astrologers say the same thing than you. Usually its written that Sag is too attached to his freedom and that scorpio wants to keep him at home. very superficial descricption. i am a scorpio woman and have dated a sag, and im absolutly ok with ur description
    ive told many friends about ur blog
    and pple always love it like i did

    “try to keep the love alive, it’s worth you too ! “
