Get to Know Sagittarius


Sagittarians (Sags) are born between the 23rd of November and the 21st of December. I thought it would be fun to get to know what makes Sagittarians tick. Here’s what I found out:

Sagittarius is the sign of the Centaur (half horse/half man) & archer. Often seen majestically holding a drawn bow at a target – this is the mindset of most Sags. They absolutely thrive when they have a clear vision, are unfettered, and focused on both intellectual and physical challenges. Achieving challenges gives them purpose, focus, and a sense of accomplishment more so than any other sign of the zodiac. seeing their hard efforts bear fruit is much more personally rewarding to a Sagittarian than collecting material possessions or achieving a certain status among their peers.Sags love to spend their money and time on studying their interests, books, and travel.

Sags are also known for their restlessness. They bore easily and often overlook important details. Sags are notorious for leaving projects unfinished in favor of the next things that catches their fancy. Sags also have a reputation for carelessness, risk-taking, and irresponsible behavior.

Sags are natural athletes and are known for having a great sense of humor. That, combined with their zeal for meeting challenges can lead to physical injuries, daredevil antics, or taking practical jokes too far. The best way for Sags to balance their zeal is to rely on and develop further their ample intellectual and philosophical interests. When they operate within thoughtful parameters and force themselves to focus on details their achievement  is almost unstoppable.

Sagittarius is one of the dual signs of the Zodiac, and thus a Sagittarian is able to move into and out of various environments, challenges, and relations adeptly. Sags are independent spirits who need literal and figurative to room to move. This can make relationships difficult for them. Partners must not be suspicious, clingy, or jealous.

Sagittarian versatility, combined with their natural excitement and enthusiasm can result in Sags taking on too many projects at once. Developing personal interests on which to focus their energy calms their boisterousness and grounds them in the present; allowing them to focus on one achievement at a time.

Sags love nothing more than to see others benefitting from their influence. So in that regard publishing, teaching, practicing law, or coaching make satisfying career choices for Sags. Known for having hearty appetites for food and drink, Sags must learn moderation and keep active later in life to avoid health problems and keep weight off their hips and thighs.

Sagittarius is a FIRE sign:

The fire aspect of Sagittarius imparts a courageous nature and a keenness and enthusiasm in life; but just like fires can, the object of their passions can quickly change direction. Fire signs are also known for their bright creativity and forceful nature that should be tended carefully to keep it manageable..

Sagittarius has a  MUTABLE OR CHANGEABLE quality:

Mutable signs are inherently flexible, adaptable, and thrive on change. Mutable signs bring people and ideas together.
