There are numerous types of relationships to explore when considering compatibility between two signs. We grow up in a parent/child dynamic. Outside our family, we form friendships with other children and eventually other adults. We look for and find love. And, we go to work and have careers, interacting with employers and co-workers.
Each sign-to-sign interaction guides our behavior in every relationship. Read through this section to find out how each of the above dynamics works astrologically so you can experience the optimal way to communicate and get along with your sign and all the other signs.
Generally Speaking about Virgo and Sagittarius compatibility
The Virgo-and-Sagittarius relationship should be challenging because they square. However, since both signs are mutable the dissonance between the fire and earth energy is not as sharp as it could be. Virgo is the “I serve” sign of the Zodiac, and is diligent, methodical, and perfectionist.
Sagittarius is the “I expand” sign of the Zodiac, and loves to explore, share, and adventure. A long-term relationship (outside parent/child) is not likely, but not impossible. There is a teacher (Sagittarius) and student (Virgo) dynamic that can prove fruitful for both in the short term.
Virgo Parent/Sagittarius Child
The Virgo parent and Sagittarius child relationship is probably one of the most challenging because the teacher/student role is reversed in terms of the power dynamic. The Virgo parent likes to see learning develop at a methodical and detailed pace, while the Sagittarius child wants to learn by exploring and taking risks.
While it is helpful for the parent to be practical, in terms of keeping the child safe, life can be frustrating for the Sagittarius child, who wants to leap into exploration at every turn.
Sagittarius Parent/Virgo Child
The Sagittarius parent and Virgo child dynamic tends to be better because the teacher is the parent, and the student is the child. The Sagittarius parent can be a guiding light regarding belief, wisdom, and mastery of knowledge, which the Virgo child can readily learn, trying out ideas presented by the Sagittarius parent.
If the Virgo child gets to go on adventures with the parent and build lasting memories, it can be a strong family relationship. But if the Virgo child gets “left behind”, then real gaps in the emotional connection can occur, which will cause the Virgo child to look to other adults for parenting guidance.
Virgo and Sagittarius compatibility as Friends
Virgo and Sagittarius friends can turn out to be a fruitful interaction if they stay connected, which may not be the case where the relationship is not held in place in some way. A friendship would need some help from other elements in the charts; otherwise, these two could be like ships passing in the night.
Each would have to see some lasting benefit from the friendship very early on to make it endure.
Virgo and Sagittarius compatibility as Lovers
This romance, love, sex combination is very much like the friendship, only with sex involved! There can be a “friends with benefits” approach, especially from the Sagittarius side, but also from the Virgo side, but “practically speaking” instead of “romantically speaking”.
Either way, if these two individuals are sexually attracted to one another, then they can enjoy each other’s company and may even “fall into” a long-term relationship if no one better comes along.
Virgo Employer/Sagittarius Employee
The Virgo employer and the Sagittarius employee will work well so long as the Sagittarius employee is in a position that allows them to travel and use their expertise, reporting to the Virgo boss when necessary. But do not be surprised if the Virgo boss and Sagittarius have little to do with each other outside of the business.
Once again, in a situation that forces them to be together, they can make the relationship work for the benefit of the company.
Sagittarius Employer/Virgo Employee
If the employer is a Sagittarius and the employee is Virgo, the dynamic can work in a similar fashion. The Sagittarius boss will not often worry too much about employees beyond, “is the job getting done or not.”
The Virgo employee can make himself or herself “invisible”, but valuable by keeping his or her head down and getting the job done, repeatedly. Sagittarius sees the global picture and appreciates having a worker who can focus on the details.
Virgo Co-worker/Sagittarius Co-worker
This combination is problematic only in the sense that these individuals easily avoid one another, more out of habit or the nature of how they prefer to work. They might come across each other at the annual parties or in certain circumstances where the high-flying Sagittarius needs some support from the helpful Virgo.
