Friendships between Sagittarius and Aquarius tend to be comfortable, and emotionally intimate, even if they do not spend that much time together. Sat just one sign apart from one another on the astrological wheel, these two zodiac signs share a way of thinking, even if they are very different in terms of what motivates them and inspires them.
The compatibility between the Sagittarius and Aquarius sun signs is based on mutual respect and trust. Both have highly independent horoscopes, so they do not feel like they need one another. But they certainly appreciate one another as friends.

Sagittarius and Aquarius Compatible as Friends?
Sagittarius and Aquarius are highly compatible as friends, but they tend to enjoy a loose friendship. They tend to have different interests and very separate lives, but they think in similar ways, so they enjoy sharing their challenges with one another, and often develop a deep bond.
Both are highly independent and confident, so theirs is not a friendship based on need. Rather, it stems from mutual respect and admiration, as well as genuine affection.
Sagittarius and Aquarius don’t often find themselves on the same page when it comes to interests. This is because Sagittarius always tends to be moving from one thing to the next, looking for whatever is new, exciting, and trendy, though they like to be ahead of the trends.
Aquarius, on the other hand, follows their nose when it comes to what interests them, and when they find a passion, it is for life. They like to go deep and know everything about their interests. They are also not concerned with what everything else is doing.
Add to this the fact that Sagittarius likes whatever is new and different, while Aquarius craves simplicity, and they don’t often have a lot of mutual interests.
Sagittarius and Aquarius are both signs that probably shouldn’t count on day-to-day, but also have a vision of themselves as loyal at heart. Because of this, they would never abandon a friend in a genuine crisis.
But both Sagittarius and Aquarius are independent and loners. They kind of see it as “me against the world”. They don’t really feel like they owe anyone anything, and they won’t really go out of their way to help someone else.
But this works well for Sagittarius and Aquarius, as neither are looking for that kind of friend. In fact, neither are comfortable with the idea of a friend that is too generous, as they don’t like to feel like they are in debt.
But these two will recognize that while they might not be volunteering to help one another move, in one another they have a friend who would never turn their back on them, no matter how difficult things become.
Fun & Excitement
Both Sagittarius and Aquarius believe that life is meant to be enjoyed, but their idea of what that means can be very different. Sagittarius is usually drawn towards traditional ideas of adventure, which means physical activities, travel, and risk. Aquarius is not opposed to any of these things, they do not chase it in the same way as Sagittarius.
Aquarius knows what they like. Whether that is knitting, comic books, martial arts, or base jumping, they are happy doing it. They don’t need the same level of thrill, or the same attention from others that Sagittarius enjoys. Both signs are loners, but Sagittarius does like to show off.
But this does not mean that the two don’t get along when it comes to spending time together. They both respect that the other has their own passions and their own way, and can pass time together while giving the other space to breathe.
They can also balance one another, with Aquarius encouraging Sagittarius to think about why something attracts them, and Sagittarius encouraging Aquarius to break their tunnel vision.
Likelihood to Last
When Sagittarius and Aquarius get together, they are likely to be friends for life, but not close friends for life.
Both are the type to be very occupied with their own lives, and therefore primarily spend time with the people who they have things to “do” with. It is often “doing” that brings Sagittarius and Aquarius together.
But while Aquarius is steadfast, Sagittarius is always on the move and changing, so whatever brought them together may well not last. When this happens, they will inevitably find themselves spending less time together.
This doesn’t diminish their connection, both are comfortable with the idea of friends that they care about deeply, but don’t see that often. It can just mean that they appreciate one another more when they do have the opportunity to get together.
Sagittarius and Aquarius can find themselves developing a deep bond. While they often don’t seem like they have that much in common on the surface, their attitudes are often aligned. They are both loners, and also extremely confident. They both believe in growing and learning and don’t think that they need to be perfect all the time.
These shared ways of thinking mean that even though they come to a subject from different angles, they are very much on the same page. This gives them a level of comfort that allows them to form a deep and genuine bond.
Sagittarius and Aquarius Potential to be More Than Just Friends
Sagittarius and Aquarius will often find themselves attracted to one another. They appreciate the other’s confidence, and the way that they know what they want in life. While they often don’t want the same things, they tend to respect people that know their own minds.
While Sagittarius is a commitment-phobe, and it can be easy for them to form a bond with Aquarius, who also is in no hurry to “put a label” on relationships and has the confidence to wait and see where things go.
This allows Sagittarius to give of themselves without feeling pressure, which makes it easier for them to feel comfortable enough to commit.
Both will also be accepting of one another’s independent natures, and won’t feel threatened by spending time apart or having different friends. The result is a very healthy relationship.
Things can be more challenging for these two in the long term because both are very firm in their ideas and struggle to compromise. This means that if they are not on the same page when it comes to some of life’s more important decisions, it can be incredibly challenging for them to find a way forward.
Both need to work on their ability to compromise and be flexible in order to make a relationship that is important to them work.
