Taurus + Sagittarius

Earth + Fire = Lava

Essentially, Taurus, you and the Sagittarian are very different people. You’re concerned with what you can touch and feel. The world of real things, things that are tangible, is what you deal in.

Sagittarians seem to base their life on a philosophy of freedom, independence and spontaneity. On a very fundamental level, this doesn’t fit in with who you are. Sagittarius is not likely to give you the assurance and comfort you need — their lifestyle is not as reliant on habit and structure as yours.

Socially, you may find that their brash and direct manner grates on your nerves. And from the other side, Sagittarius could find you a little stuck in your ways and a little immovable in your opinions.

Sagittarians tend to change rapidly and adapt easily, which will be hard work for you to keep up with, let alone copy. This constant adjustment is going to be a crucial factor in whether or not you can make this relationship work. There are lots of pluses on the sexual side, though, because you’re both ruled by Venus and Jupiter. When you strip away the layers of Sagittarian bravado, you will find their deeper and more compassionate side. This is what you will really connect with. But you will need to be patient to get to it — it will take time, but your relationship will get stronger from then on.

If you’re looking for mateship with Sagittarius, your ideal combination would be with those born between 2 December and 11 December. These people are influenced by Aries and Mars as well as by their ruling planet, Jupiter. You are likely to share some wild and exciting times together.

But Mars also makes them hot, fiery and driven. Their impulsiveness and passion can be overwhelming. Also, they are spendthrifts, so you won’t see eye to eye where money is concerned.

Those born between 12 December and 21 December also offer you fun and friendship. You’ll enjoy their company very much, and you’ll be an attractive couple. Social engagements and nightlife will be a key element of your partnership. These Sagittarians will also protect and nurture you in a way that makes you feel appreciated.

Be careful with those born between 23 November and 1 December — they are not lucky for you. They can be very free and easy with money, which is a bad fit with your more conservative mindset.

If you are in a relationship with them, make sure you talk about finances and set your boundaries clearly. Don’t lend each other money unless you have thought through the consequences for your relationship. There’s nothing worse than money becoming a wedge between loving partners.
