Venus in Sagittarius, Mars in Scorpio Compatibility

SagittariusVenus in Sagittarius loves to explore new horizons and Mars in Scorpio needs to explore the depths. They can go far together, but their very different energies could pull them apart.

Venus in Sagittarius is always on the lookout for a new adventure. She relates to her partner through exploration. With someone intriguing enough to keep her interest she can be the ideal partner in crime. Constantly ready to try something new, Ms. Sag dives into love with uninhibited confidence. She can be a generous—if unconventional—partner, but needs room to move.  If her lover tries to limit her freedom, Venus in Sagittarius will run for the door and head off alone on her next great adventure.

ScorpioMars in Scorpio is always on the lookout for intensity. Sex is his motivator, but it’s not just about the physical act. Mr. Scorpio wants to lose himself in the moment with a passion that borders on obliteration. Sex is serious business for Mars in Scorpio, and he does not choose his partners lightly. His attractions are instinctive, and once connected with someone he can have trouble letting go. Jealousy, possessiveness, manipulation … these are a few of the things his partner will have to live with. However, he can be intensely loyal, putting up with almost anything for a lover that he is attracted to.

These two will generate a ton of heat with each other (initially). Neither have any problems letting go, so the chemistry will sizzle. But rather quickly, Venus in Sag will find Mr. Scorpio way too heavy. She’ll want to play-fight while he’ll want to maintain unblinking eye contact for half an hour as he searches her soul. If she tries to go out with friends, Mars in Scorpio will be convinced that she’s cheating on him.

Venus in Sagittarius will probably be the one to call time on this relationship. She’ll chalk it up as another learning experience while Mars in Scorpio isolates himself so he can heal or figure out the best way to stalk her. The difficulty comes from Sag’s need for freedom versus Scorpio’s need for control. They can burn white-hot together, but there will need to be many modifying influences in their respective charts.
