What the Sagittarius Man Likes about Aquarius Woman

That she’s easy to talk to. The boyish, enthusiastic, philosophizing Sagittarius loves to talk. He’s in for a treat, then, because communication flows freely when he chats up the Air sign Aquarius. She’s an open-minded, mentally stimulated kind of gal who will not only listen attentively to every word he says but also build up his knowledge even further.

That she gives him ample space to roam free. What Sagittarius wants most from life is the freedom to explore the world and sample anything and everything that this life has to offer. The Aquarius woman also loves space and freedom to be herself, so she has no problem understanding his needs.

That she breathes new energy into his life. Aquarius is ruled by the innovative planet Uranus. Uranus gives her futuristic ideas via sudden bolts of insight. Combined with her air element nature, she is a mental powerhouse and a wellspring of unconventional ideas and concepts. Sagittarius is inspired by her mind and she helps stimulate his own original ideas.

That she’s a stabilizing force. Aquarius is a fixed sign, which makes her stable and dependable. Plus she’s far more freedom-loving than the other fixed signs, so she makes the relationship sturdy and balanced without constraining Sag.

That she’s never dull or boring. Aquarius is always on the go just like he is. Her mind a step ahead of life around her. Both have overactive minds and hate to sit still, so they’re at ease in each other’s presence.

That she’s honest like he is. Aquarius prizes truth and honesty just like Sag does. Deception doesn’t vibe well with either of them; they see no point to it.

That she doesn’t put pressure on him to commit. Sag fears to lose his freedom and is highly cautious concerning commitment. Aquarius is a fixed sign, so she likes reliability in partnership, but she’s also adaptable, freedom-loving herself, and open to alternative forms of relationship. She will feel comfortable working with him no matter what stage he’s at with the relationship.

What the Sagittarius Man Dislikes about Aquarius Woman

That she can be stubborn. Aquarius is open-minded and original, but she’s still a fixed sign, which makes her predisposed to bouts of stubbornness. She may be objective and dispassionate with societal ideals, but when it comes to her own nature and habits, she’s much more obstinate in the face of criticism. She won’t always listen to his advice, even if on the surface she appears to.

When she lacks passion. As an Air sign, the Aquarius woman can be a bit of a floaty and detached lover. This mostly works great for Sag, as he’s a Mutable sign and also quite changeable and distracted. But he’s also a Fire sign that is full of passion and energy. He will lament the occasions which his Airy Aquarian girl is distracted, absent-minded, or in any way unable to match his fiery side.

That she can be dismissive of his belief systems. Aquarius is an independent, scientific observer. Her approach to spirituality is likely to be more cold and detached than the Sagittarian man’s. Spirituality, and potentially, religiosity is important for him, so any potential disdain from her could bother him.

That she can be especially serious-minded at times. Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, but her old ruler is Saturn. So even though she’s eccentric and adaptable, she still has some of Saturn’s cold and serious energy to her. Now, she’s nowhere near as chilly or grave as a Capricorn, but she has her moments. She probably won’t overwhelm Sag with her serious side, but the always playful, rarely serious Sag, can bristle at heavy or restrictive energy, no matter how little of it there is (even if it’s good for him).

That she makes him wait. Aquarian women are patient in courtship. She will observe, test, and ponder the merits of dating the Sagittarius man before she makes a choice. Sagittarius prefers to leap into things and ask questions later. He doesn’t require friendship first as she does. Nor does he feel the need to pass her tests. But he does like a challenge, so this might work out well for him, even if it pains him at first.

When she gets absent-minded and forgetful. The Aquarian woman can be a bit of a space cadet. Her mind is so erratic and multifaceted due to Uranus’s influence that things don’t always stick.


What the Aquarius Woman Likes about Sagittarius Man

That he’s free-spirited. Sagittarius is a kindred spirit of Aquarius in many ways, but especially when it comes to enjoying space, freedom and displaying uniqueness. She likes his authentic, quirky expression and the fact that he’s always marching to the beat of his own drum.

That he keeps up with her mind. Aquarius likes people who are interesting, intelligent and can march lockstep with her mind. She gets that with the Sagittarius mind. She enjoys his meanderings on philosophy, travel, and different cultures.

That he’s fun and easy-going. He makes it easy for them to laugh together and have a ton of fun at parties. In fact, Sagittarius can make it easy to have fun anywhere, under any circumstances. She’ll never grow bored with him. She also appreciates that he makes it easy for her to relax into courtship. This can be especially helpful early on for the Aquarian woman, as she sometimes finds herself a little unsure of how to transition from friendship energy to romantic energy in the early stages.

He gives her the space that she needs.  Aquarius needs to go off on her own and savor some alone time more often than most signs. She is so different from most people that time spent alone really helps her to settle into her energy unobstructed. She has great synergy with Sagittarius, as he loves his alone time too and has no problem with her solitary needs.

That he’s flexible. Sagittarius’s Mutable sign nature makes him adaptable and very go with the flow. She likes this about him, in part because it makes him easier to get along with, but also because his fluidity and adaptable nature give him a more unique, personable style that’s fun to be around. And she loves anybody who’s unique.

That he instigates new, fun experiences for them. All Fixed signs, including Aquarius, can fall into stable routes and stay in them even after they’ve run their course. Being with Mutable Sagittarius, she gets the motivation to shake things up a bit. He will introduce all kinds of new experiences into her life, which will fill her with fresh energy, so long as she doesn’t grow irritated and resistant to the changes he instigates.

What the Aquarius Woman Dislikes about Sagittarius Man

When he resists being serious. Sagittarius is all fun and games, and Aquarius is too, but relationships can only stay afloat so long as the practical duties of life are met. While his insistence on fun and adventure above all else is endearing early on, over time Aquarius may grow irritated by his flippant and childlike behavior. For example, his easy come easy go, don’t tie me down relationship style might wear thin on the Aquarius woman who is trying to deepen the relationship and bond.

When he gets hotheaded. Sagittarius a Fire sign, which can make him explosive when he gets angry. Any fits of anger he has probably won’t last, and both of these signs are quick to forgive. But his tantrums might still rub the cool, detached Aquarian woman the wrong way.

Score: 9/10

The Sagittarian and Aquarian sexual natures combine well. Their compatibility between the sheets will likely be strong and supply an important “glue” that keeps these wandering signs satisfied in their overall relationship.

The initial attraction is strong and easy. They will both be pleasantly surprised. Lovemaking will be passionate, straightforward, experimental, and light-hearted. Aquarius is detached most of the time, but she has some latent passion in her, and the fiery Sag will undoubtedly get her embers burning.

There’s no rigidity felt between them. Sex will be free, and they’ll both be happy to experiment and try new things together. There’s a lot of comfort here, and communication flows freely.

They’re both libidinous, but sex isn’t a crazy strong need for them. Sexual interactions are likely to be plentiful because of how much fun they have, but neither will grow upset without a constant supply. They’ve got so much going on, individually and together, that they can put sex on the backburner for a while without issue.

Depth of intimacy can be their biggest obstacle. They might struggle to kindle enough fire for their intimacy to burn on because they are both pretty detached and laid back. Sagittarius, being a fire sign, has plenty of energy to express, but he loses focus easily and allows his attention to wander. Aquarius, as an air sign, can sometimes lose connection to her earthy, sexual side. It’s possible that their sexual and emotional bond fluctuates day by day, week by week, which can make it hard for them to be fully satisfied by the relationship.

Score: 9/10

This relationship has outstanding potential so long as the spark between them is maintained.

The Sag man and Aquarius woman should have no problem connecting on a deep level because of how much in common they share. It’s not unusual for these two to meet and know they are “the ones” for each other. And that says a lot for such independent signs, who are typically a bit aloof in love.

Just because they have a great connection, this doesn’t mean that they’re going to have a cookie-cutter relationship. Both are likely to be okay with unconventional, quirky relationships – so long as there’s ample freedom allowed. Neither is bound by traditional cultural values around the matrimonial union. So it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them experiment with long-distance, poly, or open relationships.

Experiencing culture and travel should be a boon for them. They’ll both have a wide group of friends and will travel and socialize freely together. A backpacking trip in foreign lands could be an ideal bonding experience.

Their shared mental acuity and communication skills bode well. They freely share their expansive, visionary ideas together. Any mutual interests will blossom.

Overall, this should be a romantic, loving relationship that’s free of guilt or shame. They will feel free together, and as long as they can remain focused on the relationship and keep the fire kindled, their future together looks bright.

Keys to success

Getting on the same page. It’s important for them to establish what their relationship is. Are they friends? Partners? Friends with benefits? Is the relationship open? Committed? It’s not a bad thing to keep a relationship open, light and ambiguous early on. But ambiguity is something that comes a little too easily to both of these signs, which can lead to confusion and misunderstandings. So they’d benefit more by working to define the relationship, rather than wondering if they are together or single.

Provide ample freedoms, but don’t drift apart. This relationship can fizzle out if they spend too much time together or apart. But unlike most relationships in the zodiac, the biggest danger is in allowing too much distance. They’re both so laid back and busy in their own worlds that they might not notice that they’ve drifted apart.

They may need to work on developing and maintaining intimacy. Sag man and Aqua woman are easy friends. They go with the flow so well together. But it’s typically light between them, and the relationship can lack emotional depth and bonding. It’s not uncommon for them to be hot and cold, on and off. This inconsistency can make intimacy go down the drain and leave an emotional void in the relationship.

Avoiding mental friction. While communication and understanding is likely to be high in this relationship, they should watch out for any tendencies to try to outdo the other intellectually. This is especially important if they harbor many different values and beliefs. If their rational natures get in the way of their emotional bonding, the mental friction can burn them out on each other. They might need to slow down and consider the emotional ramifications of their communicative habits.

Building trust. You’d think these two would have an easy time with trust since they are so similar concerning their freedom needs. But sometimes, there is an opposite effect, and they can become too conscious of the other’s tendency to flirt and potentially towards infidelity. If there is a defined goal for the relationship to be committed, they should communicate clearly and often about their faithfulness.

  1. As an Aquarius female, my experience with Sag guys has been awful in one case because he turned out to be a grifter. But it was good initially. Currently it’s only been a short period, but I find we get along easily. He’s blunt and I couldn’t care less. And I usually shut down on rude people in a flash and don’t look back. We both have advanced degrees and it’s easy to communicate. As an artist I have many interests and he likes to roam around on his cycle. What you’ve written fits us. Thanks.

  2. I’ve met a sag man and I’m an Aquarius female. When you say fiery, you’re not kidding, he rocks my world. It’s early in the relationship but I worry he won’t stay faithful, but it’s definitely fun!

  3. Yes my Sag man and me Aquarius are always trying to define our relationship and he doesnt want traditional one but a unique one. He’s not as serious about it as me and I get tired of his not so serious playful nonsense. We are friends more than anything else and I was okay with that but ready for more. We always find interesting things to talk about. Weve been known to run hot and cold. I think air and fire elements go well together. We each have our own lives and interests outside each other and very independent and not clingy. We compliment each other.

  4. I’ve recently started dating a Sag man (I’m Aquarius female), and it the connection was almost electric from the start. After one date, we decided to be exclusive (the connection is that strong!), and so far it’s been a whirlwind! I’ve never been with a man who didn’t try to put me in a “box” and it’s very liberating! I feel like I have found my “person,” and although neither of us have any desire to remarry, I’m hoping this is my last relationship!

  5. I’m a Sagittarius man I dated a Aquarius woman things were great in the beginning we dated did things together and went our separate ways.Then we moved in together and got engaged a month later and everything fell apart we stopped dating things stopped communicating stoped doing fun things together and I started to see I envaded her space and her freedom and she got cold. We rushed things instead of taking the time to talk about things. Ultimately I moved out and things have been very difficult I have this feeling in my stomach like I’m getting kicked in it everyday.. we we’re so connected and boom we weren’t it’s a really crappy feeling.

  6. I recently reconnected with a sag man that was trying his best to get to know me since 2018 but I wasn’t interested like that so I never allowed us to actually meet each other just messaging on fb is how we communicated. Recently I’ve been looking for more in my social/love life and doubled back on him just for him to be the total opposite in 2023. He says he is still interested in me and wants to try to get to know me, but he still hasn’t met up with me and I don’t want to ask..again. 1st i suggested we meet and he agreed but “something came up” the day of us supposedly meeting. I’ve been thrown off since lol and he hasn’t tried to meet up again. He said he was single, but I’m starting to not believe that we only really talk in the daytime while we are both at work. he has 2 grown kids, I have 1 grown son so that’s not the issue. he casually mentioned grandchildren he is involved with but that’s about it. I finally wanted to give this man a chance and now has flaky and dry smh. I wish he was eager and ready like he was back when he was trying to get at me.
