If a Scorpio and a Sagittarius want to make a love match, they should be warned to slow down, take their time getting to know one another on a deep, significant level or else they run the risk of getting way ahead of themselves.

Sagittarius is the spontaneous partner, heading in the direction their whim leads them, while Scorpio’s motives are more subdued, less easy to read.

Even if they run into misunderstandings or misinterpretations of each other’s motivations, crisis can be averted.

If these love mates agree that their relationship is significant, their devotion and affection will see them through.

If Scorpio can control their emotions, these two are in for satisfaction and excitement.

Both Scorpio and Sagittarius see each day as an adventure (or in Scorpio’s case, a compelling mystery) and as an endless opportunity to explore, to probe, to learn. While Sagittarius may get fed up with Scorpio’s stubbornness and inflexibility, Scorpio could be thinking their Sagittarius mate is just a little too hotheaded.

They’ll enjoy learning together, and travel could be very beneficial for this pair. Pluto and Mars rule Scorpio, and Mars and Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter.

Mars is the God of War, opening the door for Scorpio’s determined, courageous character.

Mars, when combined with Pluto, represents rebirth and renewal.

Jupiter focuses on philosophy, higher learning, expansion, optimism, luck and travel.
