Upside: visionaries with creative souls; open minded; champions of the underdog; humanitarians; want to see the best in others; playful.

Downside: delusional and in denial; addiction; restlessness and escape; overconfidence and paralyzing insecurity.

Mutable Fire (Sagittarius) and Mutable Water (Pisces)


Sagittarius and Pisces together are a dream team. The Archer is a sunny extrovert, who is a top candidate to become Pisces' only sunshine. There's something guileless about Sagittarius that is refreshing for Pisces, who often slips in and out of personas. With Sadge, what you see is what you get. And that can be inspiring to Pisces, who as the sign of the Fishes, tends to flounder, and not know who they are from one day to the next!

Pisces is an enigma wrapped in a riddle -- sometimes outgoing, sometimes ingoing, like the tide. The socially confident Sagittarius is a bridge then for making friends and covering ground out in the world of culture, the arts and with colleagues.

In return, mystical Pisces shows Sadge how to see a place, as if for the first time, as a cure for their restless wandering. Pisces sees through the eyes of the soul, and the Archer can't help but be awed by the Neptunian (Pisces' other ruler) depth of perception. This widens their world, and gives the relationship a revelatory feel, as one compliments the other.

The Love Boat

Sadge is the wanderer, with places to go and people to see. Pisces is also keen on taking voyages, whether its to cross an ocean for real, or wading through inner wetlands. Both signs like to collect snapshots, scenes and memorable anecdotes from their travels.

Both are likely to be seekers in some way. They share a traditional ruler -- Jupiter, the planet of optimism and making out the luminaria-lit path.  As artists, educators or lawyers -- no matter the profession -- the real life's work is looking for signs, serendipity, that golden thread of inspiration that is always there, but always changing too. Sagittarius has steady aim, and in career goals, is that guiding hand for Pisces that helps them thrive.

Sagittarius finds overarching meaning, the big picture, and is often a natural as a teacher or journalist. Pisces wades through layers of impressions, like an impressionist painter. They are jovial (a word that comes from Jupiter) companions, out for traveling, luck and sense of life as an adventure.

The Archer and The Fishes are idealistic, and tend to put ideals above material concerns. This might alarm their parents, who want to see them settle into lucrative, stable work. But lucky Jupiter brings surprise plot twists, rewards for following their bliss. In staying close to what inspires, and what's truly important, they support each other on a path of progress.

Fire and Water

They meet love with a sincere attitude, open to being shown new worlds through the experience. The Archer flirts directly, and that can feel startling to Pisces. Sadge is a fire sign, known for its shocking candor. What's deeply under wraps in Pisces, can be intuited and flashed around in public, when the Archer is not tuned in.

Pisces is a water sign, and in some cases, can lose its juicy moistness, in the presence of too much fire. A remedy is for Sadge to become aware of the Pisces' sensitivity. And Pisces can discern when to retreat for me-time, to refill the well.

Different Rhythms

The nature of Sagittarius is more physically "in motion" than Pisces, and this difference in rhythm creates strain. When the Archer wants to go, Pisces is radiating from one spot, experiencing the subtle levels all around. Sadge is more physical in general, and is more oriented toward experiential learning.

Both are mutable (changeable) signs, greeting life as a shifter of shape.  Pisces needs time to integrate what is experienced, and often finds a pathway through the imagination. If Pisces feels rushed, this puts them on edge. And if Sadge feels held back, that's also a stressor. A lost and emotionally reaching Pisces, when it slows the Archer down, makes the latter want to look for the exits.

Trippy Travels

A lifelong challenge for Pisces is to put its ineffable spirit into some kind of form -- more than most signs, Pisces struggles for self-identity. When confidence is nurtured, this love match helps Pisces develop a personal philosophy, and sense of momentum toward definable goals. On the flipside, Sadge grows wise to the magic of staying still, with all senses buzzing, as another way of moving into awareness.

When the best of these signs meet, they're a pair that brings enchantment to a weary world. They're endlessly curious about people, and friendships are important. Many memorable occasions are set in motion, sometimes spontaneously. Sagittarius and Pisces open each other to new ways of seeing. They crave varied experience, travels and are sexually adventurous, too. A well-matched pair, whether for a season or a lifetime.

A Sagittarius and Pisces Love Story

Our love

I was in a relationship with a Pisces for 3 years. First and foremost the sex was amazing but the conversations were seldom due to the fact that I (sag) talked more than I listen to my Pisces. Although when I did let my Pisces talk, she didn't have much to say because she often held back on talking to me about how she felt; that frustrated me. I would also speak from anger and my Pisces would never forget anything harsh that I said which caused us a lot of problems. We spent everyday and night together but sometimes I would spend time with my friends and that would hurt the Pisces but on the other hand we did give each other space. I was also very jealous and the Pisces got offended by that. Anyways we ended up breaking up.
