￼ GEMINI WOMAN + SAGITTARIUS MAN
This is a match made in heaven and its opposite. The dual, if not dualistic, Gemini catches Sag’s third eye. He is electrified by her double-barreled persona, equal parts innocence and manipulation. Finally, he feels, here’s a woman with an edge to rival his own. The Centaur, himself, half beast half shaman, is just the enlightened animal Gemini has been looking for, all her life. He lives life in extremes and is uniquely qualified not only to deal with, but to appreciate, Gemini’s infamous personality shifts, prepared to run the gamut with her. She is doubly whatever she’s feeling at varying times, and he revels in her over-the-top moods. Given Sag’s immediate acceptance—other men may run for the hills—she is ironically less inclined to act out in (self-) destructive ways. Sag draws on the archetype of Dionysus, the so-called god of disorder, while Gemini takes a page from the goddess of discord, Eris. Whereas she can wreak havoc for most people, men in particular, she only seems to make this guy giggle with her antics. She is at once the most feminine, and certainly one of the more beautiful, females in the zodiac, and yet she’s a die-hard man’s woman who feels threatened by other, generally more emotionally stable girls. Fortunately, Sag finds stability to be a big snore.
Not a Svengali per se, Sagittarius man rather tends to inspire a woman to make herself over in his image, which sees most signs getting lost in the Centaur’s technicolor world. Gemini, however, is already a mirror image of the Sag, in so many ways. She is one wild child who can be at turns bacchanalian and ascetic, just as he is. They are, each of them, concerned with appearances and aging. As a result they might swing from one extreme diet or exercise or cosmetic procedure to the next in an effort to keep time at bay. Everything they do, they do big. As a couple they suck the very air out of any room they enter, determined to capture as much attention and admiration as they might. They take a shock-and-awe approach to life, often startling friends and family with seemingly crazy decision making, which these characters inspire in the other. These signs rule each other’s cosmic 7th house, directly opposite the 1st house of self, on the cosmic wheel. The 7th is, thus, the house of the non-self, or other. From the first moment these two lock eyes, they feel the other sees not the person standing before them but rather the potentially fully realized self into which they each yearn to evolve. There is no dynamic of holding each other back, here, something Sagittarius especially appreciates. Free to be you and me, this couple ironically morphs into perfect counterparts, both physically and intellectually. They may together espouse some funky belief systems or become devotees to this guru or that. Often, they can overly encourage each other to become so-called enlightened beings, fueling each other’s knack for self-delusion. But these god-complexed glamourpusses are hellbent on noncomformity, if only to upset others’ applecarts.
This is one of the more anything-goes sexual bonds. Here, Gemini is determined to shatter any good-girl image she might have maintained with other men. And what turns the Sagittarius on can be anyone’s guess, though he always has some extreme, fetishistic fantasy to fullfill. He, especially, enjoys stretching his lover’s limits, and while Gemini firmly imposes her own, she will slowly, over time, enjoy being taken to erotic places she’s never gone before. Sagittarius is patience incarnate. Indeed, sex for him is not characterized as isolated sessions, but rather it is an ongoing thing, picking up where he last left off with a lover. He is typically a dominant figure for whom training a mate in submission is a loving and gentle lifelong practice. He revels in freeing the sexual expression of the Gemini, especially if it takes the form of begging him to satisfy and overpower her. Phone sex and other verbal play is a big part of it for the Centaur, who employs his erotic imagination more than any other guy on the astrological wheel. Using toys on this woman is also a Sag proclivity, again, over time, introducing increasingly large or otherwise affecting gadgets, upping the ante of Gemini’s tolerance for pain as well as pleasure. She tends to be bisexual to some degree, and Sagittarius will seek to capitalize on that fact; no matter how deeply in love with the Twins he might be, Sag is the most zealous and least jealous of men. He might entertain another man in the mix as well, if it fits his agenda for overstimulating this lady. Sag is notoriously confident in his masculinity; as such, even the straightest Centaur may’ve given same-sex a whirl, simply because he can, without compulsion or confusion. Getting it on with other couples particularly tops Sag’s sexual to-do list. Gemini may get into it, so long as she garners all the attention, inspiring envy from other females whom she will allow to please her, while not so readily reciprocating. Withholding is a form of Geminian manipulation, providing the perfect foil for Sag, who is forever trying to open the Twins to new experiences. But her real or feigned reticence provides the sexual tension on which Sag thrives. She knows that she must continue to provide him with a challenge in the bedroom. Meanwhile, she will mainly advance an agenda for some straightforward screwing that doesn’t require props or a supporting cast. He tends to be an athletic lover, with decent staying power, and what he may lack in equipment size he thus makes up for in motion. He might learn some finesse, particularly when it comes to handling Gemini’s sensitive rack. She will teach him the nuances of the oral arts as well—he’s more a gobbler than a gourmand. And he’ll learn to love the subtle style with which Gemini performs on him as well. Sag is a major exhibitionist and he will play with himself to entertain the Gemini, who will find it more comic than erotic a show.

SAGITTARIUS MAN + SAGITTARIUS WOMAN
Probably the highest powered people in the zodiac; however, we see herein the real difference, and it can be vast, between the Sagittarian male and female characters. Ruled by planet Jupiter, named for the supreme male deity (Greek: Zeus), male Sag is a pastiche of associated myths and archetypes starting with that Olympian king and his reincarnated self, Dionysus-Bacchus (born from the Zeus thigh, the body part ruled by Sag) as well as Zeus’s savage-sage brothers, the Centaurs, and his trusted seer, Teiresias, whom Juno (Greek: Hera), Jupiter’s wife, blinded for siding against her in a marital spat. That lovely lady is the archetype of Sag woman, also quite blindingly radiant, the goddess-diva or Lady Godiva who likewise blinded the peeping Tom Rhymer. What’s up with all this sight stuff? Well, one Sag motto is “I see,” and the male Archer is often indeed a visionary who can tap into the ordered chaos of his own stream of consciousness, or that of the zeitgeist, god Jupiter’s signature lightning striking more than once for this man. And while Sag man is enjoying this or that flash, or flashback, going off in his head, Sag gal is about dazzling others. She can’t help it. Juno is the goddess of women and Sag is here to say she is one: See her sparkle, if not hear her roar.
So many of the first female authors ever to catch like wildfire, who wrote about women, their societal roles and marriage, another Juno provenance, were Sagittarians—from Austen to Alcott, Eliot to Dickinson, Cather to Didion—and of course Juno’s myths surround her marital battles with Jupiter. As they would: The soap-opera effect is a result of older agricultural goddess cults meeting patriarchal society with its male sky gods, which is why we get a male nature god in Dionysus-Bacchus and a female sky goddess in Juno, key rivals for Jupiter’s affection and the Sag characters in a nutshell. Sag man is something of a magnet for mayhem, perfectly calm himself, the picture of Dionysus on his dais, while all around him is certain chaos if not an outright bacchanal. As the god of wine, he causes shamanistic shifts in consciousness, that of which Sagittarians from Swift to Blake, Twain to Disney, Hendrix to Morrison, have no doubt had some knowledge. He is off in his own world, seeking to foster his chimeric fancies and expand his consciousness, if not his material empire, rather unconcerned about other’s opinions, including his spouse’s. We must pause to say that Sag-Sag combinations are probably the rarest of same-sign bonds. As the man least willing to be reined in—you can’t tame a Centaur—here meets the one woman most determined to stop a man dead in his tracks and have him appreciate her for all her splendor, which in no small part includes a personal power that must not only be reckoned with but reconciled to. She wants to be the vision a man gets so rapt by, not compete for attention with a man’s own machinations, whether artistic, sociological, political, or what have you. Here, Sag woman is a most reluctant power behind this man’s throne.
