Irritation might be one of major themes in this relationship. Sun in Sag’s expansive energy will make Moon in Virgo feel insecure and out of control. Moon in Virgo’s focus on what’s wrong will strike Sagittarius as unbearably picky. However, these two can learn a lot from each other about the compromise between crazy optimism and intensive worrying.
Sun in Sagittarius sees the big picture, which makes him a naturally enthusiastic, forward-looking partner. He’ll be interested in all kinds of adventures (mental and physical) with his lover, but he’ll also insist on the freedom to have his own adventures. Sun in Sagittarius is can be an anti-depressant for any relationship, but his partner will have to be tolerant of his tendency to overdo everything (including his promises).
Moon in Virgo needs something defined to sink her teeth into. She feels most secure when she’s helping her lover, which makes her the queen of practical nurturing. At her best, Moon in Virgo can be a domestic goddess on steroids. The downside to this is if she can’t find something to work on, she’ll dig until she uncovers a flaw. Her Shadow side can emerge as she fixates on her partner’s issues, or worries that the relationship will fall apart at any moment.
Whenever Sun in Sag floats upwards and outwards, Virgo will be the anchor that drags him down to earth. Sagittarius will chafe under her restrictions, and Virgo’s anxiety will be amplified by his refusal to focus on the details. Not an easy match, but if there are other binding contacts between them, these two can actually help each other. Moon in Virgo will be Sag’s reality check (and she’ll hold him accountable). Sun in Sag will help Virgo lighten up, especially when she becomes trapped in the need to nitpick or obsess.
