Astrology for Lovers

Text by Liz Greene, Copyright © Astrodienst AG 2018
Libra with Sagittarius

The two of you are both seekers after a higher reality, and you may share spiritual or aesthetic pursuits which help to build a deep and enduring bond. Airy Libra is idealistic about love and civilised in expressing it, and this enhances Sagittarius' imaginative pursuit of life's adventures. Fiery Sagittarius is perpetually ... read more

You are a Libra

Your ruling planet is Venus, the mythic goddess of love and beauty. Because of this, lots of people think Libra should be the easiest sign to understand. All you need is love, right? Wrong. Libra is an air sign. And air is concerned with ideals and principles above all else. Ah, love. Of course you think a lot about love. But the ... read more

The Sagittarius partner

Sagittarians can exhibit a certain reluctance when it comes to things like marital vows. Since this sign's great love is for future possibilities, they'll quite naturally balk when they're asked to give up all those possibilities for one reality for the rest of their life. "'Til death do us part" is a phrase which resonates ... read more

The Sagittarius man

This elusive and fascinating creature can often be spotted by his tendency to gesticulate wildly and tell very funny stories. One of the nicest things about the Sagittarius man is his sense of dramatic irony. He'll often do his travelling and his wandering on a mental rather than a physical level. This is the philosopher of the zodiac, absorbing all forms of knowledge like tasty meals. But the Sagittarius man isn't really an intellectual in the academic sense. He's far too intuitive, and more interested in spotting connections than in dissecting information. And his thinking is speculative rather than pedantic, whether it's focused on philosophy, literature, the arts or the stock market. The life of the mind is much more important to him than what he eats for dinner. In fact, he'll often forget to eat.

The Sagittarius man often attracts a partner who sees this endearing absent-mindedness and sets about trying to take care of him. What he doesn't need, repeat, doesn't need, is to be taken care of. Of course he'll tell you he does. He'd live in a pigsty without you, and his clothes would be rumpled and his bills not paid on time. But if you do these things for him, he'll grow to resent it. If you've been lured into the caretaker role, stop playing it at once.

You can't parent him until he grows up. His definition of growing up is different from yours. Most people believe maturity is about taking responsibility in the tangible world. For Sagittarians, maturity is seeing, realising, understanding.

Not that you're to blame for trying. The Centaur is an exciting and dynamic man, whether intellectually or in action, and his fleetness of foot and untamed vision make him terribly appealing, especially to partners who long for a little excitement and inspiration in their lives.

There's no doubt that Sagittarius' adventurous soul is guaranteed not to bore you (unless he's going on about his current philosophical, spiritual or political hobby-horse). But if you can create some adventure and excitement in your own life, you'll enjoy him and his vision much more. Also, you're demonstrating that you're a travelling companion who can have adventures yourself, and not someone who's joined to him at the hip. One of Sagittarius' basic approaches to life is to laugh at it. The world is, after all, a rather silly place. But you have to have a sense of humour yourself, or otherwise you won't understand what he's laughing at, especially when he laughs at you. The Sagittarius man can be a terrible tease, and he's not averse to taking a sly poke at anyone who's too serious or pompous. He doesn't like hypocrisy, and he can be hair-raisingly blunt when it comes to telling you what he thinks of you. He's big-hearted and kind, but not blessed with an overabundance of tact.

Fortunately, this sometimes hurtful side of his nature is balanced by the fact that he can laugh at himself too. His biggest problem in relationship is crossing that dreadful bridge between romantic fantasy and earth-plane reality. For many Centaurs, it's just too big a chasm, and they never succeed in getting to the other side. They often leave a trail of broken love affairs behind them and are still pursuing the dream even when they're clearly long past being able to fully live it. Most Sagittarian men, however, do make peace with earth-plane reality sooner or later, albeit reluctantly.

Beneath the apparently ironic or skittish approach some Sagittarian men display toward commitment, you'll often find a frightened child who's afraid his romantic ideals will be smashed. Don't mistake that "See you some time" approach for a cold heart. The Sagittarian man has a heart of gold, when he's really in love. It's just that his dreams bruise easily. Eventually he learns to humanise his expectations of life and love, and trust and friendship are the guideposts that can help him on his way. He can offer those in abundance himself, and he deserves them in exchange.
