Sagittarius and Pisces
– Friendship Compatibility Profile :
When Sagittarius and Pisces form a friendship, it is often a case of dream fulfillment. Sagittarius is an intellectual and philosophical Sign, easily shifting from one pursuit to the next. Pisces is quieter, more involved in the shiftings of their own mindscape. In many ways, they are contrasts, and on the surface they may seem unlikely friends. When they care for one another, though, they are each able to satisfy the philosophical needs of the other and have a happy rapport.
Sagittarius is outgoing and versatile, and in a friendship with Pisces often becomes the protector of their more gentle partner. Pisces, in turn, gives Sagittarius quiet understanding and a place to rest, away from Sagittarius’ exhausting pursuits. Pisces is a sign that, like Water, fills whatever container it is poured into; Pisces tends to focus much energy on understanding and sympathizing with their friends. They are often more patient with Sagittarius’ wanderings than are other signs. Sagittarius’ active exploration of personal knowledge combines with Pisces’ gentle compassion for other people to endow both partners with self-awareness. It’s a self-awareness that rarely passes into self-absorption — a trait that a Sagittarius on their own might manifest — and one that isn’t overly accommodating — like Pisces alone might become.
Sagittarius and Pisces are both ruled by the Planet Jupiter. Pisces is also ruled by Neptune. Jupiter brings exploration and outreach to both signs. Pisces is concerned with this ideal in the abstract; they find themselves trying to save the world (perhaps in the form of recycling or environmentalism). Sagittarius, on the other hand, prefers to expand personal knowledge through academics, books or study. Neptune is about big pictures, ideas and illusions; it’s also involved with disillusion and fantasy. Sagittarius can help Pisces bring fantasies into reality. Jupiter works through Pisces by putting a softer face on Sagittarius’ occasional hotheaded outbursts.
Sagittarius is a Fire Sign, and Pisces is a Water Sign. These two elements can be a great combination if they work together, using innate understanding of situations and people to get things done. Pisces can help Sagittarius focus and learn to be gentle, while Sagittarius teaches Pisces to go out into the world and learn what there is to know. These friends enjoy traveling together. Pisces can be emotionally draining for the Archer at times, too much Water dampening Sagittarius’ Fiery spirit. Conversely, too much Fire can boil the Water and leave Pisces emotionally unstable. Sagittarius and Pisces must use their perceptive skills to enhance the friendship.
Sagittarius and Pisces are both Mutable Signs. Neither friend feels a need to conquer the relationship. They enjoy working hard as equals and seeing their ideas come to fruition. Pisces gains great happiness from helping others. Sagittarius and Pisces enjoy dreaming up ideas. No one is preoccupied with end results; for this pair, the fun is in the journey! A lack of conflict over roles helps Sagittarius and Pisces work on the same projects with great success.
The best aspect of the Sagittarius-Pisces friendship is that each can benefit from each other’s wisdom and at the same time work well together. Pisces shows Sagittarius how to empathize and care; Sagittarius teaches Pisces how to make dreams happen! The ability to each provide what the other needs makes theirs a truly reciprocal friendship.
