What the Sagittarius Man Likes about Virgo Woman

Her earthy beauty and grace. Virgo is a feminine-natured earth sign. She has natural, womanly grace and is soft and alluring. Sagittarius is highly masculine himself, so the polarity is strong here.

Her determination. When Virgo sets her mind on something, she sees it through. She’s analytical, goal-oriented, and a bit of a perfectionist. She zeroes in on all aspects of a project, all the nitty-gritty detail, ensuring that all possible variables are accounted for. Sagittarius admires these qualities, as he may lack focus and follow-through.

Her adaptiveness. Virgo is a mutable sign, which makes her incredibly flexible in the face of changing circumstances. Sagittarius is also mutable, so he’s versatile himself and admires it in others.

Her practicality and keen insight. Sagittarius could most likely use a little more practicality in his life. He is an ideas guy with fantastic, grand ideas, but he can flounder, making his visions reality. He’s fortunate, then, to meet Virgo, who is skilled at bringing systematic order to the people around her. She helps him approach his projects more practically and appropriately. She’s great at business, too.

Her emotional strength. As an earth sign, the Virgo woman is strong and steady. Her stable and steadfast nature means she can handle most anything thrown her way. Sagittarius, who is not prone to large emotional fluctuations, appreciates an emotionally stable partner.

Her intelligence and mental acuity. Sag is mentally sharp and needs someone who can keep up with his mind. Virgo, who is ruled by Mercury, easily matches his mental prowess. Her mind can process and keep up with vast amounts of information. She loves to communicate and structure her thoughts through dialogue, just as he does.

What the Sagittarius Man Dislikes about Virgo Woman

How intensely structured she is. Virgo loves order and hates when things are chaotic. She puts a lot of effort into structuring her life to avoid any disorder from creeping in. Sagittarius thrives on variety and spontaneity and likes a little chaos in his routine. He’s so easily bored that it keeps things interesting to him. While perfect for her, Virgo’s routine might drive him up the wall.

That she can be a worrier. Virgo is the biggest worry-wort of the zodiac, and Sagittarius is often the least. He understands that she likes to be cautious, but he hates when she rains on his fun parade with her cautious reserves or gets herself up over hypochondriac fears.

Her critical nature. Virgo can be hard on herself and has high standards for her partner. With Sagittarius, she may grow critical if he slacks at all with goals and responsibilities. Easy going Sag won’t like any critical or angst-provoking energies.

When she becomes cold and withdrawn. Fire sign Sag likes to be expressive, passionate, and act on his emotions as soon as they arise. Virgo doesn’t open up quickly, especially in the early stages of a relationship. And she may withdraw deep into herself when hurt. His open and direct nature may clash with her here.

When she’s high strung. Virgo gets wound up sometimes and can have a hard time letting loose. When stressed, her anxiety shows up as high-strung, very critical, and insecure behavior. Sag is far more laid back and may have difficulty interfacing with her stress modes.

Her attempts to dictate his life. Ever critical, you can bet that Virgo will zero in on any shortcomings that Sagittarius has. Although well-intentioned (she wants to help him), she can end up trying to push things on him that he doesn’t like. Sagittarius is mutable and doesn’t mind compromising to work with her, but he doesn’t like his life being dictated to him.

Her tendency towards introversion. Virgo, as an earth sign, favors spending time at home with lots of calm downtimes, while fiery Sag loves to be out on the town and rarely spends time at home. He probably wishes she’d accompany him on more social outings.

What Virgo Woman Likes about the Sagittarius Man

His open-minded tolerance. While a low-functioning Sagittarius can be intolerant of others, the majority of Sags are widely accepting of those around them. This reflects their relaxed, curious, live and let live ideology. He might not agree with someone, his own beliefs are strong after all, but he’s unlikely to hold anything against them for believing differently.

His conversational prowess. Sagittarius has a sharp mind and enjoys all kinds of people. He loves to talk, so his conversational skills grow well as he ages. Virgo is also cerebral and enjoys talking endlessly with him, loving his confident disseminations on philosophy and beliefs.

His free-spiritedness. Virgo can be relatively restrained. She appreciates this side of herself, as it proves helpful in her skillful navigation of the world, but she’s also aware of its limitations. She is inspired to see the carefree (and successful) Sagittarius making his way in the world. At times, he may be a little clumsy, but he doesn’t seem racked with her familiar insecurities.

His lack of concern over others’ opinions. The Virgo woman is quite sensitive to criticism and may shy away from potential exposure to it. The Sagittarius man is far more nonchalant about others’ thoughts and does what he wants regardless. He’s a dreamer, after all, and can’t be bothered by someone trying to tear down his big dreams. Virgo finds his confidence-inspiring.

His penchant for business. Virgo and Sagittarius are both highly suited for business success. Although they have different approaches (he focuses primarily on big-picture projects, while she’s a master of the minutiae), they can both find extreme success.

His playfulness. Sagittarius’s energy is youthful, innocent, and full of curiosity. He’s always having fun and looking for the next thing that can bring excitement to his life. He carries a lightness and trust in his heart, which essentially ensures that he’ll find what he’s looking for. Virgo sees this, and it inspires her to let down her guard, even if just for a minute.

What Virgo Woman Dislikes about the Sagittarius Man

His compulsiveness. Sagittarius prefers to act on a whim without really going over all of the details. He does this for small decisions as well as big ones. The Virgo woman is quite the opposite, as she is highly systematic and organized. She makes sure to assess and establish a plan before taking any action. So his brashness might not sit well with her.

When he’s not detail-oriented. Sagittarius is always looking at the big picture in life, and because of this, he often misses out on the small details. He can be a bit sloppy and usually leaves a string of failures and missed opportunities behind him. This doesn’t bother him so much, as he always has some new opportunity brewing. But it does irritate the ever-organized Virgo. She can become angered by his chaotic, all-over-the-place standards.

His blind faith. Sagittarius is idealistic and has faith in the inherent goodness of people. He is benevolent and expects others to be just as he is. Virgo is much more cynical of situations and people. Her cynicism has served her well in life, and she may wish that Sag was a bit more discerning at times, too.

His carelessness with money. Most Sagittarians have a laissez faire attitude around money. They can make money quite easily and are usually generous and liberal in their use of it. This is fine for him, as he always believes more will come (Jupiter rulership). Virgo is quite different and frequently stingy with her money. As an Earth Sign, she is resource-minded and cautious about maintaining good bookkeeping. She can be critical of Sagittarius’s spend-thrift ways, especially if he’s prone to gambling with his funds or being financially irresponsible in other ways.

His reluctance around commitment. Sagittarius fears being tied down or tamed. He wants to roam the world freely. This doesn’t mean he doesn’t want to have a life partner (he is an idealist, and deep down, he wants a soulmate). So even if the Virgo woman is right for him, he can be very slow about showing any commital feelings. It takes the Virgo woman showing him over and over that she won’t constrain him or keep him on a tight leash before he softens to the idea.

When he doesn’t take things seriously. Sagittarius is a goofball and an eternal child. He wants to have fun and explore endlessly. This is rare and charming, and Virgo is attracted to this energy. Even though this side of him is inherently seductive, she’s a serious woman and wants her partner to mirror this at least some of the time. Sagittarius is often only serious when he’s mad, so Virgo might end up getting her wish, but she might regret his sour mood.

When he gets angry & explosive. Sagittarius is a fire sign, and fire signs can be quick to anger and become quite volatile in arguments. Virgo doesn’t take well to explosive bouts, especially if she feels they are rash and grandiose. She can become aggressively critical in response, which only increases tensions.

How easily he gets distracted. Virgo likes to focus and work hard on her goals. Like Sag, she is a mutable sign, but she is more of a completionist. She’ll likely grow annoyed if Sag continually loses focus on his projects or goals, especially if he’s acting frivolous or out socializing to excess rather than taking care of practical duties.

Sagittarius Man & Virgo Woman: Sexual Chemistry

The sexual chemistry between Sagittarius and Virgo begins in the mind. They’re both chatty and intellectual, which translates naturally into the bedroom.

Virgo woman requires an excellent mental connection before making a sexual one. Sex is mind over emotion in the early stages for these two. She will be slow to open up, and she might be pretty vanilla at first. She needs to develop trust first before she can truly open up sexually. However, underneath this caution is a highly sexual (and probably quite kinky) woman.

Sagittarius is not phased by her reluctance and has no problem relaxing her mind and playfully easing her into things. Before too long, his generosity and tenderness open her up.

When they relax into lovemaking, they learn a lot from each other.

Sagittarius teaches his Virgo how to let loose be more expressive during sex. Sag is a goofball, and his fiery passion manifests in a strong desire to enjoy sex and have fun.

Virgo teaches him how to go deeper and patiently unfold more levels of intimacy. She will likely want to slow the pace down at some point, and he’s okay with that (Sag is adventurous and will try anything.) She’s earthy, soft, and much more sensual than he is.

Virgo is a giver and loves to please her partner, which Sag could potentially take advantage of. Issues may arise if the Sag man tends to be a selfish lover. So they should watch out to avoid an imbalance and lack of equality in the bedroom.

Overall, sexual compatibility can work well so long as their energies are harmonized. They’re both loving, affectionate, and have high libidos. They’re both comfortable trying new things as mutable signs, which keeps them engaged and interested.


Sagittarius Man & Virgo Woman: Relationship Score

Score: 4/10

The initial attraction between Sag and Virgo can be strange, as they think and behave differently due to being square each other on the zodiac wheel. They must spend time learning each other’s unique rhythms. It’s a relationship that tends to work the best if they start as friends first before diving in romantically.

  • There’s not much power struggle between them. Virgo is okay with Sagittarius taking the spotlight, and Sag is okay with Virgo taking care of much of the details.
  • They have a strong mental connection. It grounds their initial attraction and is vital for sustaining the relationship.
  • They always look at things from different perspectives (square energy), which keeps things exciting.
  • They’re both entrepreneurial and make great business partners.
  • They’re both adaptable (mutable energy). There are plenty of teaching moments in this relationship and lots of growth. Virgo will be pushed to grow and expand, which is good for her. And she’ll teach him to be more organized and take responsibility.
  • Sag helps Virgo learn to loosen her grip a bit. With him, she becomes more spontaneous, and lets go of fixating on unnecessary details.
  • Virgo brings order to Sagittarius’s grand visions and helps bring his dreams to life. And Sag’s expansive mind opens up potential in her that she hadn’t even imagined.

  • As mutable signs, it can be hard to maintain interest, so there’s a possibility for them to stray.
  • Different perspectives (square energy) can wear thin. Ex: Sag’s impulsivity vs. Virgo’s calculated approach, carefree vs. worrier, optimistic vs. skeptical, active vs. downtime.
  • Virgo’s acceptance of Sag’s outgoing and sometimes flirty nature. She can read into it too much and not trust him even when he’s trustworthy.
  • His reluctance to commit. Virgo is a dedicated partner, and it can irk her if he’s dodging commitment.
  • Sag can be bothered by her critical side because it feels like control or just rains on his parade. He’s cool with her planning her life out, but he doesn’t want her trying to micromanage him.
  • They can focus too much on goals and visions, which causes them to lose out on emotional connection and intimacy. They need to continue to go out on dates, re-establish intimacy, talk about their feelings, etc.
  • His careless attitude might upset her and drive her away, especially concerning big decisions, where he is aloof and always assumes the best, sometimes to a fault.

  1. So right so so true… I’m have a deep love for my Sagittarius ex partner however, we never seemed able to stay in a place of harmony for longer than a month at a time. This lasted for 8 years, such a waste. I saw him as my best friend and great lover but not a life long partner though I tried and tried. It’s still hard to be without him, I love him dearly from a distance still admire him so much.

    This article made perfect sense to me.

    1. Hi SAS,

      Would you be willing to explain a little or give me a few examples of what went wrong exactly, like the most common pitfalls you found in that relationship, if it is not too much for your to tell? I am embarking on what feels like a very promising relationship in the article’s exact scenario (I am a Sag and she is a Virgo). Its eerily accurate in some aspects.

      Thanks in advance for any insight!

      1. Hi Sas,
        I can relate with your comment. I am a Virgo woman madly inlove with my ex which is an Sagittarius. I love, respect, trust and admire him and I feel like I always will. As much as we had this soul connection, he just struggled to commit to the relationship, which made me lose confidence within myself and in the relationship. I tried so many times in the 5 years to make it work, at the end we decided that it’s not working. We are still best friends and a part of me hope he would want to work on this for a change… Let’s see.

  2. wow this is amazing and thank you for the information, I’m a virgo woman; in love. With a Sag! And to be honest it has been a year and cannot wait to make up even though our “not in a relationship with you but love you kinda” thing is driving me balls. Thank you your writing is engaging. All your articles. ♥️????????

  3. Anyone still here?
    Also sagittarius man loving a Virgo woman, also with our struggles, 4 years in going on 5th, but looking to grow old with her. Want more intimacy between us but it’s either me as I have a high sex drive or her that she’s got a low one,and wouldn’t want this to be the reason for our struggles.

    1. You say you want thongs to be more intimate, however theirs only the mention of sex. Intimacy to a Virgo women is
      – texting ‘hi ♥️’,
      – phoning and just saying ‘wabted to hear your voice’
      – touching without having sex although it may lead to that
      – Saying ‘lets go out’ even if for a walk

      It’s the time you give to the virgo – doesn’t have to be a lot but does have to be meaningful.

      So that the both of you feel special.

      Watch then and see who has a low sex drive 😀. Virgo’s do not

  4. This was so helpful, thank you 😊
    Now I understand better my lovely Sag! And now I know what I did last year was the best decision: after going out with him for six months, I was still a friend with benefits… So I decide not to see him anymore. For 2 months we didn’t talk or texted. But after that time, he called me and we are together again 😊 Now I’m he’s girlfriend!

  5. hi a Virgo dating a sag man…he is the best man ever..tho he has been insecure..we have bn dating for 2 yrs now… planning for a wedding in the next 6month…dating a sag man u shud b very patient with him…

  6. I have been trying to make a relationship with my sag. Man work for 5 years. He always comes back and we have made it through a lot. He’s been hurt by women a lot and I think is scared to commit. Any advice to help make this work better? He loves that I’m patient, and says I’m amazing. Any advice to make him step forward.
