The Archer and The Archer
This series on AstroCompatibility will cover all of the potential matchups in the Zodiac. We will continue this series thinking about and commenting on Sagittarius and Sagittarius (Centaurs). You can get an EBOOK with all 12 matchups for each sun sign described, including Sagittarius at Christofer's new website: http://www.astrologygetalong.com.
Sagittarius - Sagittarius
Sagittarius is a Fire Sign and Mutable. The Centaur, (Archer) (Horse) is one of the more distinctive signs in the zodiac. Now we contemplate that two of them meet, find each other attractive, and begin to explore each other’s identities as being candidates for partner, associate, mate, and lover. The Centaur (half man half horse) is a great image for Sagittarian characteristics. They are characterized by various images: shooting their arrows, making outlandish statements, being not only painfully honest, but sometimes humorously honest. They are valiant like knights, seeking fairness and justice. A bit like Don Quixote, the Sagittarius is motivated to take on “impossible dreams”, as the tale declares. If there were not one party in the zodiac like this, it would have to be invented. Who is going to be the one to lead the way when a charge is needed? The Sagittarian fills the bill. And, it cannot be a defiant or angry sign, it must be a kindly sign, one with good intentions abounding. That is why when the Archer’s characteristics are described, you hear about “unintentionality”. The Sagittarian works from its own center. It’s own core. That core is a vibrant heart that is trying to make good things happen. Individual charts studied would reveal the heart of each and their more internal programming.
Now if these two are thrown together, they can do to each other that which they do to others. It makes sense, especially since the Archers are so ebullient and unrestrained. So, what if two Archers end up with a bunch of arrows sticking in them? If all of their honesty ends up rattling the bones of their partner, then there is an automatic lesson being learned by both of them. “Perhaps we need to learn to bridle ourselves. Perhaps we need to understand that our unmitigated joyfulness, which often becomes laughter in the face of pain, needs to be altered and changed.” It is in this thought that the beauty of this match might be told. The need for enlightenment with Sagittarius comes with the Archer calming down and seeing how the opened mind will bring enlightenment to both of them. Then, perhaps the Don Quixote becomes not a knight of futility, but one of grand realizations.
A positive view of this coupling is one in which the joyful Archer is matched and harnessed together, not with smothering restraint, but with the freedom of consciousness guiding their partnership. These two will tend to be blessings socially and spread their beneficent natures outward.
The wildness of the horses really makes romance a happy and vigorous act of caring for one another and holding back excesses, which could be considered the Archer’s errors. When the excesses are held back, wholesomeness is generated.
Since the basic Centaur is happy and possessed of strong loving intentions, they must be considered as boisterous in conflict, and free in their ways of self-expression. If the two of these understand that they should not bit the backs of their fellow Centaur, and hold back the arrows of self-defense, then they should be smooth sailing.
Life in the end is repetitive and mundane, and so is Romance itself. This factor asks the question: "Can we be bored together over the long term?" When you see a horse galloping across the field, and then stopping to enjoy the field’s grasses, you don’t think of boredom. Note that they are hardly ever off their feet. That is true of the Sagittarian.
Keep Up The Interest Graph:
The archer will shoot new arrows in any direction to keep people lively and alert. Interest amongst these two will probably not be a problem, unless they decide to argue bitterly over who gets the say.
Seven Year Itchiness:
There are some signs that by their nature are more stable in their love interests and family concerns as time goes on. Others are not. The "7 year itch" could look definitely be a predictable tendency if they are not soundly based in each other’s hearts.
ASTROCOMPATIBILITY POSSIBILITY RATING: 75% Positive Long Term - 90% Short Term. A romping good time is what they would have upon first encounter. Then they would start taking notes and comparing characteristics. Could be very long term, unless fundamental differences arise.
