A lot of people think that the opposite nature of these two zodiac signs, Scorpio, being a water sign and a Sagittarius being the fire sign helps in keeping up the attraction between them alive. It is true to some extent, but it comes at a high cost and is tough to maintain. Scorpio is the ultimate passionate creature and Sagittarius is the epitome of romance. This is definitely an excellent combination but it is not as easy as it sounds. This is because; the basic perspective of relationships is very different for both these signs.
The Sagittarius is all about challenges and will get into a relationship just for its thrill, whereas the Scorpio is the one who takes life seriously. The optimist inside the Sagittarius will let it take up anything in life, without so much of as a hesitation. In fact it is this very attitude that attracts a Sagittarius to a Scorpio. The former likes the “if looks could kill’ style of the latter. It is very tough to earn the trust of a Scorpio, as they do not believe easily. Sagittarius on the other hand is pretty easy to pick up. The Sagittarius loves to be like a free-bird, without any restrictions and the Scorpio likes to be bound by rules.
The happy-go-lucky attitude of a Sagittarius is strong enough to take the Scorpio in its stride and build up the love for adventure for the latter. Scorpios are passionate about their life and it shows in their love-making. They share a lot of physical intimacy with their partners, and this is inadvertently welcome with the Sagittarius as it is as adventurous in its love as it is in life. These opposite qualities are often the prime reason for the intense attraction between these two zodiac signs.
