There are numerous types of relationships to explore when considering compatibility between two signs. We grow up in a parent/child dynamic. Outside our family, we form friendships with other children and eventually other adults. We look for and find love. And, we go to work and have careers, interacting with employers and co-workers.

Each sign-to-sign interaction guides our behavior in every relationship. Read through this section to find out how each of the above dynamics works astrologically so you can experience the optimal way to communicate and get along with your sign and all the other signs.

Generally Speaking

The Scorpio-and-Sagittarius relationship should be challenging because they sit side-by-side and have discordant elements. However, Scorpio does rather well with the fire signs, which do a good job matching Scorpio’s intensity. Scorpio is the “I transform” sign of the Zodiac, and is intense, powerful, and a change agent. Sagittarius is the “I expand” sign of the Zodiac, and loves to explore, share, and adventure. A long-term relationship (outside parent/child) is possible, but not common.

Scorpio Parent/Sagittarius Child

The Scorpio parent and Sagittarius child relationship is probably one of the most interesting. The Scorpio parent likes to see their children figure out power lessons and how to have an impact on the world. The Sagittarius child wants to learn by exploring and taking risks. This combination can prove fruitful for both the parent and the child. Each will learn from the perspective of the other without being overwhelmed by their differences.

Sagittarius Parent/Scorpio Child

The Sagittarius parent and Scorpio child dynamic tends to be very much the same. The parent can be a guiding light regarding belief, wisdom, and mastery of knowledge. It will help the child find opportunities to transform and test themselves, trying out ideas presented by the Sagittarius parent. If the Scorpio child gets to go on adventures with the parent and build lasting memories, it can create a strong bond. Children want to find out where the power lies in all relationships and can prove to be too intense for other signs, but not a Sagittarius parent.


Scorpio and Sagittarius friends can turn out to be a fruitful interaction if they stay connected. This may not be the case unless they have good reason to remain friends. Sagittarius can come and go, while Scorpio can be intensely private. This makes a lasting friendship more challenging without some requirement to be together. A friendship would need some help from other elements in the charts; otherwise, these two could be like ships passing in the night. Each would have to see some lasting benefit from the friendship very early on to make it endure.


This romance, love, sex combination is very different than friendship, once love and sex get thrown into the mix! There can be a “friends with benefits” approach, especially from the Sagittarius side, but also from the Scorpio side. Or it can be a life-or-death love affair, considering one sign is ruled by Jupiter (Sagittarius) and the other is ruled by Pluto (Scorpio). Either way, if there’s a sexual attraction between these two individuals, then they can be passionate and intense with one another, and may even “fall into” a long-term relationship if no one better comes along.

Scorpio Employer/Sagittarius Employee

The Scorpio employer and the Sagittarius employee will work well so long as the Sagittarius employee is in a position that allows them to travel and use their expertise, reporting to the Scorpio boss when necessary. But do not be surprised if the Scorpio boss and Sagittarius have little to do with each other outside of the business unless they are conducting an affair. In a situation that forces them to be together, they can make the relationship work for the benefit of the company and get powerful results in the process.

Sagittarius Employer/Scorpio Employee

If the employer is a Sagittarius and the employee is Scorpio, the dynamic can work in a similar fashion, including the affair. The Sagittarius boss will not often worry too much about employees beyond, “is the job getting done or not.” The Scorpio employee can make himself or herself invaluable by working harder than anyone else and getting the work done, especially in difficult circumstances. Sagittarius sees the global picture. They appreciate having a worker who is unafraid of change and willing to do the dirty work to succeed.


This combination is problematic only in the sense that these individuals easily avoid one another, more out of habit or the nature of how they prefer to work. They might come across each other at the annual parties or in certain circumstances where the high-flying Sagittarius needs to be partnered with the intense Scorpio to get a task completed.
