Famous Virgo-Sagittarius Couples:
Dave Stewart and Annie Lennox; Jimmy Connors and Chris Evert
There are two kinds of bachelors in this world: neat and sloppy. When they meet as a couple it is bound to produce friction. Virgo will be fascinated at first as he runs a merry chase to keep up with Sagittarius, but when she leaves her underwear strewn across the bathroom and scrapes his bumper on the way out of the driveway for the second time, the romance dims. This is hilarious to the bystander but to the Virgo it can be excruciating as his neat little world gets tromped across with hiking boots. Essentially this is friendship energy, not romance, and friends don’t have to live with one another.
How to Attract a Virgo Man as a Sagittarius Woman:
You’ll have to shrink yourself down to get into his world for awhile. Did he boil up his 2-minute egg just right this morning? (Ask him how he does it without an egg timer.) Is it exactly time to get the dog groomed? Isn’t it great he could get a new pair of heels put on his favorite shoes? (Five years is not long enough for a good relationship with a pair of shoes.) Naturally this will be difficult to maintain so it’s best to continue your full plate of other activities and “friendships” while he parses his way to the verb in the sentence.
How to Attract a Sagittarius Woman as a Virgo Man:
It’s easy to attract a Sagittarius, but hard to keep them. You will attract your Sagittarius to you by your gregariousness, your ease with chit chat, and your seemingly casual approach to relationships. She might even be roped in by your “shy” act because it brings out the exhibitionist in her. The quandary becomes how to stay interesting enough to keep her from jumping the fence permanently. The secret is to use your famous integrity to show her that you don’t ever need her and would never tie her down.
Degree of Romance:
These two signs are bachelor signs for monks or contemplatives. The energy is best suited toward exploring the world together from a philosophical or religious perspective. Both people are very interested in the world around them, open to a large number of other people as friends, and in constant need of mental stimulation. This orientation precludes even the desire to make one person special above all others. I think St. Francis Assisi who said “brother sun, sister moon” was in a Virgo Sagittarius relationship with his sister.
Degree of Passion:
Virgo may be able to borrow some of Sagittarius’ passion for life, but notice the passion is for life, not for you, which will suit you just fine since you like to stay cool as a cucumber. For someone with your refinement, passion is an excess and therefore wasteful. You are more comfortable supplying the appropriate degree of pressure and energy in any given situation, and you are wise enough to know that passion does not lead to stable growth between two people. You can be counted on to maintain the relationship by the daily acts of devotion for which you are so famous. They will be utterly lost on your Sagittarian partner, but you know what you are doing.
Degree of Friendship:
This is a fantastic combination for friendship. Each of you loves to talk as long as it doesn’t involve feelings, so you may have found the raconteur in each other. There is such pleasure in this type of friendship that the sun may come up on many a conversation that threads a beautiful tapestry of understanding.
Degree of Marriage:
Neither sign is particularly inclined to marriage and doesn’t bring it out in the other. It would have to be some external catalyst or some emphasis somewhere else in the chart to produce a marriage with this combination of sun signs. As a friendship with privileges, however, it would go on and on and on. Neither sign recognizes the need for closure.
Progression of Relationship:
Fits and starts. The clown in Sagittarius comes out when being pursued by a Virgo. There will be laughter, pratt falls, false starts, missed opportunities, and other occasions for hilarity. Each of your brings out the sense of humor in the other. So it will be messy but a lot of fun.
Neither sign is particularly noted for interesting sex of the conventional sort. The attraction is more likely to be based on fascination with each other and the world around you. My phrase to honor you together would be traveling companions.
When It’s Over:
Each of you will avoid this kind of closure, as well, preferring to leave things open ended by nature. It is not likely that you will accrue many possessions and the emotional depth that promotes vindictiveness is absent. The best ending would be these four words: hail fellow well met.
