Your Completely Queer Guide To Horoscope Hookups

sagitarius_300x300SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21) Sagittarius wants to seize life by the throat in the best possible way, and it makes you the kind of person that people always want to be around, since you tend to be the source of the fun. You’re an adventurer in and out of the bedroom, always looking for the next big thrill in life and love. You’re outgoing and a social butterfly, while simultaneously interested in spiritual and philosophical pursuits. It’s no wonder so many ladies have a tendency to think of you as a queer dreamboat and the “total package.” You roam in lots of groups and probably have a wide array of lovers from lots of different backgrounds. Hey, variety is the spice of the Sagittarian life!

Best Lesbros Forever – Taurus, Gemini, Virgo

SAGITTARIUS and ARIES This is the real deal. This is love that springs from friendship and a deep mutual respect for each other. Sagittarius loves excitement and adventure, Aries loves to provide the fun. They both love their independence and freedom, and they’ll get it. They’re both blunt and don’t like to tiptoe around issues, so decision-making is a piece of cake where they constantly find common ground. They make each other happier than they’ve ever been before. Did I mention that the sex is crazy good? Because it’s crazy good. When they’re not being incredibly passionate, they’re also best friends who offer support in everything they do. These two bring out the absolute best in each other, and love is a guarantee.

SAGITTARIUS and TAURUS Great friends, but not so great at relationships. Sagittarius brings the fun and adventure, and Taurus is the loyal companion who follows their lesbro through thick and thin. Sagittarius is on the blunt side of things, and Taurus often jumps in to save Sagittarius from certain death in the dyke bar. If they want to take it to the next level, they’ll find themselves stumbling with two very different sets of needs: Sagittarius wants freedom, and Taurus wants security. Love’s a struggle, if they see it there at all, but as two queers on the town, they’re a barrel of friggin’ monkeys.

SAGITTARIUS and GEMINI Gemini is all about that freedom, but no worries, because so is Sagittarius. Their shared love for adventure and creative change makes them the perfect partners for all kinds of romps, and they’re totally down for exploring new things in mind, spirit, and body. They’re so similar that it’s impossible they wouldn’t be friends, and if romance doesn’t work out, they’re sure to be the bestest friends any adventurer could possibly want. Whether it’s leaping through a mosh pit at a Tegan and Sara concert or shouting to each other about exciting new queer theory, their minds were made for each other.

SAGITTARIUS and CANCER What seems like a good idea in the heat of the moment doesn’t look as good in the morning. Didn’t Bright Eyes write a song about that? Well, Cancer will be listening to a lot of Bright Eyes after Sagittarius takes a romp through their life. Sagittarius wants adventure, and freedom to seek the next thrill, and Cancer wants comfort, security, and someone to love them in all the right nurturing ways. Tread carefully, kids, because these two could not be more different in their approaches to life, and unless those differences are mapped out, it’s going to be a rough go.

SAGITTARIUS and LEO Leo has probably had a crush on Sagittarius for a while, because everyone has a crush on Sagittarius! Luckily, Sagittarius can’t resist a queer who makes big entrances, and Leo’s more than happy to align themselves with another life of the party. These kids are wild. Fire on fire means the passion is off the hook, and when it comes to social lives, these two are fun magnets. Everyone already gravitates to people-loving Leos and Sags, and together they are completely irresistible. It pays to follow them around at Pride, because they are going to have a super good time no matter where they go. When they’re not living life to the fullest, they’re bringing out the best in each other, with Sag grounding Leo and Leo teaching Sag some manners. This is a powerful match that means happiness for everyone around them.

SAGITTARIUS and VIRGO While a relationship might not be the best idea for these two, they’re best friends first. Both are fantastic at balancing the other, with Virgo’s practicality a plus for Sagittarius, and Sagittarius’ need for freedom is not a problem for Virgo, who just wants to give the other person what’s best for them. Sagittarius isn’t fond of Virgo’s perfectionist side, and might feel pressure when Virgo tries to put Sag’s crazy life in order. Virgo thinks Sag is too high energy and needs a life plan. If they can overlook these critiques of the other, they actually balance each other super well on the wingwoman front, and as friends, they’re a loyal pair. As lovers, there might be too many obstacles for this to go anywhere but south…and not the sexy ‘going south’.

SAGITTARIUS and LIBRA When their eyes meet for the first time, the attraction is instant. These two have an innate bond that cannot be beat, and they will probably act on it as soon as possible. Libra loves worldly Sagittarius’ adventurous lifestyle, and Sagittarius loves nothing more than listening to Libra rave about their favorite art and music. These two will be ravishing each other as soon as is humanly possible. There’s tons of energy here, sexual and otherwise, and it’s the kind of thing that can make their connection easy and fun for both. Neither likes stagnancy or the feeling that anything in their life has become dull, and the hot stuff between them is going to keep everyone on their toes. This immediate intimacy could translate itself to a friendship or a relationship with little issue, and it’s up to the pair to decide if they’re better suited for hanging out or making out.

SAGITTARIUS and SCORPIO Scorpio loves a challenge, Sagittarius loves an adventure. What could possibly go wrong? Well, a lot. Scorpio wants power and control, feels possessive of their partners, and doesn’t do well with too much instability, as it brings out their own unpredictable nature. Sagittarius just wants to run free, and once they’ve figured out Scorpio, they’re on to new things, something Scorpio will not take well to at all. While it’s a hot ticket for a hookup with the power plays that will inevitably surface, it might be a challenge to keep it going in a balanced relationship, especially if that relationship is monogamous.

SAGITTARIUS and SAGITTARIUS These two were practically made for each other, and it makes sense, since fate had them born under the same sun. With just the right balance between independence and bonding, a pair of Sags knows when to give each other space and when to cuddle up in the wake of their adventure-seeking. Their deep conversations and easy-going nature mean they’ve struck up the perfection balance, and they’re pretty much adorable in public or private. Everyone wants to be around them because these social magnets have doubled in appeal, and the happiness they radiate is pretty contagious.

SAGITTARIUS and CAPRICORN Opposites are attracting pretty hard in this pairing. Sagittarius is everything Capricorn doesn’t understand in a person, and they might see them as a distraction from their best-laid plans. But Sag knows an attractive queer when they see ’em and they want to get in there and rile Capricorn up a little. Is it the recipe for a longterm relationship? Probably not, unless Sagittarius can turn down their freewheelin’ instincts and learn to work a little, and if Capricorn can see Sagittarius’ different perspective as something to be appreciated rather than ignored. In the meantime, Sagittarius is all sexy can I and Capricorn is actually closing out of iCal for once.

SAGITTARIUS and AQUARIUS Sagittarius is swoonin’ hard for Aquarius’ creative flair, and Aquarius loves a heartthrob who likes to wax poetic about philosophy, especially post-coital. There’s a ton of chemistry here because Sag’s fire is fueled by Aquarius’ air, and there’s no limit to the sexy stuff they can accomplish when their genius gets together. They’re both loyal and loving, but they believe in the freedom to do as they please, an independence they’ll allow for each other given they’re back by bedtime. This is actually a great set-up for something non-monogamous because both have pretty liberal needs for space and aren’t prone to feeling possessive of their partners.

SAGITTARIUS and PISCES Dreamy Pisces and philosophical Sagittarius may end up in their headspace a lot, but it’s pretty sexy up there. They’re content to have brunch in bed and think about deep fantastical thoughts together, or meet up at a museum and make out under some Greek art. Pisces is more than okay with Sagittarius’ somewhat aloof side, and Sagittarius keeps coming back for more of Pisces’ alluring depths. Since Sagittarius isn’t one to sit in their feelings, Pisces’ extrasensitivity may be just what the archer ordered when it comes to addressing their usually ignored needs. They’re big on traveling and seeking out new and interesting things, which means this is the couple whose suitcase you should be stowing away in stat.

  1. SPOT ON, BANG TIDY & SERIOUSLY GENIUS.. Loving your work :o) Feels like this was written with humour, empathy and the perfect balance between providing enough relevant info to be useful without going OTT..
    I’m a Gemini and am enjoying probably the most gorgeous relationship of my life so far with a Taurean lady. On paper it should be a train wreck, but in fact it’s just beautiful. Am just enjoying every day as it comes and not questioning or analysing it. I love astrology and think there’s a lot of helpful insight to be gained from it, equally I’m so happy to be in a relationship that’s an exception to the mystic rule book..

  2. Ha — it’s always been kind of hard to put stock in horoscopes when I’m a leo, and while I can be egotistical, I’m also the shy, socially awkward, anxious type. I still think they’re fun, though.

    • aha, yea same, sometimes i always wonder if im even a leo or if the astrology chart is wrong, because most times when you look up, “intresting facts about leos”, one of them will always say that a leo is super confident, I mean yes I can be very confident and out going, but not necessarily with, love, friends, and other things.But ya know, im a teen and ive never dated a girl before, but i already know i like women, because ya know, ya just know.But uh, yea, i found this pretty helpful. Also i just like commenting yeeeee

    • And the Virgo thing is also wrong. Virgos love to fall for me. Every. Last. One. Critical thinkers who explore the world and learn together, maybe write, draw, and dance a bit, that’s what Aries and Virgos do.

  3. Anassa Kata!! Greetings from Israel. I just joined autostraddle. I am known as OldLadyKlainer on tumblr. I graduated from BMC in ’75
    with a major in Hist.of Religion. I have 3 grown children: my ‘baby’
    is a combat soldier in the IDF and a TaeKwonDo champion. My older daughter lives in NYC and is LGBT. She goes to college. I am a Sagittarius who may be a ‘late in life’ LGBT woman (like Meredith
    Baxter). I am a retired chef and English teacher; currently I do clothing alterations at home. I crochet, knit, quilt, cook and read
    ferociously. I look forward to reading your columns in the future.
    So nice to meet you. mamahufflepuff

  4. I’ve always loved astrology so this was fun to read :p I’m a Capricorn and my girlfriend is a Gemini and we’re more similar to each other than to anyone else. Been dating almost a year and have yet to really argue. I totally agree with my description, but I guess she’s a rare seed with hers because I think she should really be a Taurus xD Super fun article :3

  5. OHMYGOD you guys. Try looking at these with you & your partner’s Venus signs. Taken in combination with your sun signs, you may find that the parts you disagree with are right on the money with the Venus signs.

    I’m a Sagittarius sun and Scorpio Venus. My girlfriends are Capricorn/Capricorn and Aquarius/Pisces. My newest interest is a Taurus/Gemini, and while I would never make a relationship decision based exclusively on someone’s astrological indications, there’s nothing wrong with noticing patterns. My best friends, my lovers that were great, and the ones that weren’t, and the people I can’t stand – mostly fit the pattern (with a few outliers).

  6. yeah. i’m used to Cancer assessments being deadddd wrong for me. sucks because i’m super into astrology/metaphysical stuff!

    i’m basically the exact opposite of needy and/or emotional in relationships. i’ve almost exclusively been in friends-with-benefits situations (with one possible exception, and that ended BECAUSE i wasn’t aware that we were “official” until they brought it up casually & i bolted), and i don’t have plans to change that in future.

    the potential of commitment by either me or the other party freaks me out, i don’t like monogamy, i never get emotionally invested or have butterflies / general mushy feelings, & i’m all-around aromantic… how far from Cancer can you get?!

    but i still like to cuddle!

    the Aquarius description isn’t far off, which is interesting since that’s my moon sign. maybe that’s my dominant personality since Cancers are ruled by the moon! see, i want it to work!

  7. So I thought “this is a fun article” and I pop over to the Scorpio page and start reading through and everything hits the mark except for one really clashing part… the bit where I’m meant to be introverted.

    And then I see the apparent reaction between Scorpio and Leo and I’m thinking, “this Leo sounds more like me”.

    So I go over to the Leo page and read the first bit and everything agrees with me… but then it doesn’t mention some of the things that really clicked on the Scorpio page. The only way I can figure it is that personality-wise I must be some kind of mad combination of the two. It is true that I need my personal space but I also crave so much my very active social life and have past experience of being absolutely miserable without it.

    The horoscope here indicates the combination of personality types as a tempestuous ‘one to avoid’ between two people. Somehow combined within one person, I can only give a sardonic recognition giggle and come to the same conclusion. Lol.

    My gorgeous Pisces girlfriend of 2-years-and-counting however indeed seems a perfect fit for either, and is absolutely a perfect fit for me! :) <3

  8. Just the other day I was lamenting that all the astrology sites catered to heterosexuals, whereas I’m a dorky homo who realizes how silly it is to look at her horoscope for relationship advice but does it anyway. Thanks for not making me stoop so low as to take advice aimed at straight men.

  9. OK so as a Scorpio sun and rising I believe that I totally relate to my sign in every aspect, but I do not fit with the zodiac match ups. I am generally attracted to Aries, Aquarius and Leo and not at all Gemini, Virgo or cancer. So I checked out my moon and I’m a cancer of which I don’t think I relate to at all . Anyway awesome post , thuroughly enjoyed reading through !

  10. Ok, I totally agree with this on a surface level. Strictly going by sun signs. And yet, as a scorpio who is in a serious long term relationship with a leo, and totally head over heals in love with her I might add, I have to remind the masses that there’s more to astrology than sun signs. Your whole chart should be taken into consideration. My partner and I have more in common under the surface than our sun signs would have you believe. Thus, I would caution anyone who takes astrology to heart to dig deeper into a person’s chart rather than writing them off because of first glances at their birthdate. To be fair both times I’ve dated an Aries it was a total train wreck. The trains collided, exploded into flames, and then they re-materialized and did it a few more times just to emphasize how wrong I was in thinking that could have ever worked.

  11. Hi I am Harper,a Libra and 18 in a wonderful relationship with my 19 year old Aries friend Anrina. This post is true in some cases but honestly, both of us love being with each other and all. She is bossy and rude sometimes (ok, most of the times) and I am always arguing.We met when I was 13 in school. She is amazing and the “opposites attract mantra” still works. There’s rarely any frustrated tears and all. Infact she’s right beside me now laughing…

  12. I wonder if instead of using sun signs it makes more sense to focus on Venus, cause that’s the planet of love and sex? I find that my Venus in Scorpio is so more important in my own chart regrading relationships, whereas my Sun (ego) in Libra is more applicable to my work and other projects.

  13. I’m dating a Capricorn and I’m a Gemini. So far, it has been a communication challenge because us Gems are more mental, so we seek that stimulation and communication is key. My Cap seems to appreciate life at this point in life so we enjoy each others presence as Gems like to be child-like at times. We’ve had a disagreement so far which me being a Gem, I pushed away automatically. She was able to calm me and help me look through the situation. Gems need that because we will push away if we don’t feel loved or appreciated enough. She stays on me as far as task, and I stay on her as far as goals and making sure she holds up to what she says she will do.

  14. I’m a Pisces woman dating a Gemini woman and we’ve had a very magnetic relationship in the beginning had some ups and downs since then and we’ve managed to smooth out all of the rough spots simply by communicating with each other. I don’t smother her with too much affection and she’s not too detached to where I don’t feel the love like most Pisces-Gemini relationships. We also put in a lot of effort and compromise into making our relationship work which is most important aspect aside from communication. Any sun sign combo can work with these two things.

  15. Taurus here!

    Been with my Scorpio girlfriend for almost five years now and we’ve never been happier or more in love!
    What you said about our pairing is pretty damn spot on, too!

  16. Good read. Compatibility differs when it comes to friendship, sex and relationship. Over the years, I’ve compiled my own empirical truths on who gives the best bang for the buck, who one can hang around with and who should be your life partner. Some are spot on in your analysis here but if one is truly honest and have had lived expansively, one will agree that to each his own and that everyone is very different. Upbringing and life experiences matters a lot and can change one’s horoscopic stereotypes externally. However, truth be told, every sign retains ONE of their true CORE essence internally. It’s up to you or your partner to discover which one defines either one.

    I’m a Piscean with Sagi rising and brought up in a very challenging warrior lifestyle. I’m supposed to get along well with Cancerians and Scorpions but I pretty much loathe them for all the right and wrong reasons. I’m way too aggressive and honest frank for them to find comfort and solace and I never back down or lose from a fight I’m cornered into. I’ve told my closest friends and family-I never fight 99.9% of the time, but if I’m forced to, I won’t fight, I will make sure I KILL you! That is why I genuinely fear my own darkness :) Some may recoil at this revelation but the root is that if that loser is unlucky to unleash my pandora’s box of pent up abuse over my lifetime, he/she earned it-no regrets! Otherwise, boringly, I’m compassionate, protective, extremely old fashioned loyal, but will not tolerate nor sympathises with hypocrites, traitors and deliberate losers. Sex wise, I consistently find a few tried and tested signs that can seriously quench my hunger for immense satisfying pleasures; and some, I would never ever touch with a mile long pole even if they looked like a Greek god-dess! Good attitude is key. Sexiness with mutual respect is seductive and addictive. Surprisingly, when I shared some of these observations, many concurred, which could mean some signs are universally sh*t, and some are must grab! LOL.

    Using horoscopes to filter hookups-frens-partners may limit the sampling size, but I rather be sane, grounded, harmonious and alive than dragging closeted mental case residuals and debris along. Yes indeed there are exceptions to the rule in anything but sadly, way too far and in between for me to take the chance again and again. Trust your own instincts when connecting with someone new or those who have yet to earn your trust. Observe, take notes, remember common patterns and always ask for their star signs. They may find you “strange or creepy” but turn it around and entice them into submitting by disclosing that you know which signs are always a great lay and which are jerks. Trust me, they will be enamoured to know for themselves. Everyone’s a narcissist deep down. It’s then up to u to dispense wisdom while you choose how to sample them, ala carte.
    The library’s open. Good Reading y’all !!

  17. Pisces & Taurus – when there are other balanced Astro makeups in the charts…WOW is it such an out of this world match.

    Holy crap sensual excellence!!! Less talk more action. So good.
    Very few times do “arguments” happen and then they do, there is always a realization that we’re going somewhere and elevating the relationship to a new level.
    But DANG is the physical part good. So good.
    Spiritual and physical bliss. When it’s right it is very right. A Taurus with some water in their chart is a good choice.

  18. I feel so seen.
    In reference to believing, rejecting, or just thinking astrology is fun, has it occurred to anyone else that astrology and tarot are kind of a language of trauma and trauma recovery? Both can kind of be a religion for folks cast out by a bigoted church. They can both provide a grounded sense of what to see as a pattern in yourself if development of one was disrupted by childhood trauma or if disassociation makes it hard to love all of your parts. Both offer insight- a salve to the tired minds of folks inclined to overthink everything. Compatibility ‘scopes can make it feel more predictable and thus safe to try again at a relationship for someone who has experienced a traumatizing relationship.
    And like guess who is most likely to experience hate violence, sexual assault, bullying, poverty? And that’s without breaking it down by sex or gender identity or race or immigration status or age or where you live.
    Like, I have could list out so many examples to support my thought and then network the shit out of supportive treatment options, non-profits, city council hopefuls, legislative protections until I die if I just date a Virgo or ask them and an Aquarius to help me run for office lol
