People belonging to the zodiac sign Sagittarius are known for their optimism and love for freedom. If you find them inscrutable and hard to understand, go through this piece of information on their traits and characteristics.
Sagittarians are considered rare gems among all zodiac signs, as they usually get along with people of all other signs, both in terms of friendship and romance. Their jovial nature, wit and intellect, naturally attracts people to them.
This is the ninth sign of the zodiac, symbolized by an archer or the centaur (half man and half horse). The zodiac date range of Sagittarius falls between 23rd November to 21st December. The sign is ruled by the planet Jupiter. It is a fire sign; and is more compatible with zodiac signs like Aries, Leo, Libra and Aquarius. It is a masculine and extrovert sign.
Sagittarians are attractive, versatile and energetic. Being, idealistic and ambitious, it is not unusual to see them fighting against injustice. They are always open to new ideas, new places (sometimes even new people!), and hence, love traveling and exploration. They have a sense of morality and are rarely found to tread on the path of iniquity. Most of them are even found to be overly religious and god-fearing.
A typical individual, born under this sign, is very daring, and loves adventures. He loves his freedom and independence, so much that he can never be overly attached to family or even his partner (this can completely avoid the in-laws problem after marriage). Another Sagittarian virtue is that they never interfere in other people’s affairs as they appreciate other people’s freedom as much as their own.
Sagittarius men and women are very outspoken, and literally have an inability to keep their thoughts to themselves. On one side, they will compliment you generously and genuinely; but, on the other hand, they will speak the bitter truth, that can hurt you. But, the archer will be bewildered by your reaction and even wonder what annoys you on hearing the truth. Therefore, they are often tagged as being tactless.
Although Sagittarians can be rude and sarcastic at times, they never deliberately mean to hurt or insult anyone. Remember, beneath their cool and casual exterior, is a childish and a lovely heart that is free from cruelty and deception.
On the less brighter side, they are very impatient and restless, and do not like to keep themselves tied to a relationship or a demanding career. Although, most of the career choices suit them, their qualities like dominance, boastfulness and direct speech can jeopardize their career and relationships. Sagittarians are good with money and finances, but, often fall on the extravagant side.
Secondly, ordering them to do anything usually falls on deaf ears and they will never ever do it. Although they have a far-sighted and intuitive nature, Sagittarians can lose it all, thanks to their procrastination.
A typical Archer likes fun, adventure, intellectual stimulation, a healthy argument (on any subject under the Sun), gourmet food, interesting company, optimistic people, and being constantly on the move/traveling, etc.
When talking about their physical characteristics, note that these individuals are usually muscular and quite thick set. They are tall and have a pleasing disposition. Eyes of Sagittarius individuals are specifically peculiar as they are bright, lively and alert. Natives of this sign are generally jovial, exuberant and energetic. Overall, their personality is quite charismatic.
Being caged or curbed of freedom, being with clingy and over-sentimental people, playing too safe, monotony/routine, being doubted of their honesty, suspicious individuals, pushy and bossy individuals, etc., are their dislikes or pet peeves.
The Sagittarius Woman
You may think that the Sagittarius woman lacks feminine charms. But, think again, for she is very friendly, outspoken, bright, and pleasant. She lives under no illusions, and is very optimistic and enthusiastic about life. If you are close to her, you will see her emotional side and will always want to care for her.
But, she is very outspoken and will refuse to lie for the sake of it. She will never falsely compliment her partner or falsely say what he wants to hear. Her outspoken nature can sometimes cause problems in her relationship. But, if you let her be as she is and encourage her to pursue her dreams, she will be extremely loyal to you to the point of trusting you blindly.
The Sagittarius Man
Typical male representatives of this sign are very practical and broadly optimistic. They always have an eye for the big picture, rather than getting into the finer and minute details. They have big dreams and goals that may or may not turn into reality every time. But, they seldom get disheartened, and have a rare ability to start again with the same vigor and enthusiasm. Sagittarians are also blessed with luck that never seems to run out.
On the other hand, boredom makes them very miserable. Due to this attitude, these individuals tend to change careers or even partners when the excitement is over. You should never doubt a Sagittarius male’s integrity or be prepared to fact his temper. (Remember, both, Sagittarian men and women have a nasty temper, albeit it does not last long). Another significant trait of this man is that he would rather be found dead than caught being a hypocrite.
A Sagittarius in Love
These individuals have the ability to look beyond the external appearance and appreciate a person for his nature, more than his looks. This virtue applies in terms of friendship as well as love affairs. This may be the reason for them having a lot of friends and very few enemies.
Sadly, Sagittarians are often mistaken as being flirts because of their friendliness. They always look for equal partners who are bright, intelligent and as energetic and enthusiastic as they are. If a Sagittarian says the three golden words to you, do not doubt his genuineness as he will say it only if he really means it.
Sagittarius sign is highly compatible with Aries, Leo, Libra and Aquarius.
Sagittarians are very passionate and full of fun. Basically adventurous by nature, they like to explore and try new things in a relationship and even love making. This can even have a negative connotation in case of some Sagittarians, and they can get bored very soon and turn promiscuous. They are also capable of getting over lost love or failed marriages as quickly as they are of getting over broken dreams.
Sagittarius sign is moderately compatible with Gemini, Virgo, and Sagittarius itself.
Although the word ‘marriage’ can make them nervous, natives of this zodiac sign can be interesting partners once they get married. The flirtatious Sagittarius man, who was no less than Casanova in his youth, can turn into a mature and ideal partner, and a father content with family life.
On the other hand, women may either find a tough time dealing with an outspoken and extremely frank Sagittarius husband; or they can even be attracted to his virtues of honesty and truthfulness. More often than not, this man is found to have a casual attitude, and will hate being tied down to the domestic responsibilities that come along with marriage. But, he will never hesitate to give love, affection and even generous gifts to his wife and kids.
Sagittarius sign is least compatible with Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces.
Similarly, the Sagittarius woman will be an interesting partner, a friendly mother and a charming hostess, only if you let her have her independence and do not boss her. She will hardly make a good match to a dominant and chauvinist man who wants his wife to be timid, shy and old-fashioned. With her kids, a Sagittarius mother will be more of a friend than the mother, who will inculcate in her kids values of independence and freedom that are very dear to her heart.
Sagittarius in the Workplace
In the workplace, these individuals are particularly liked for their charming disposition. They are enthusiastic, optimistic and brimming with new ideas. Their risk-taking and open-minded nature proves useful for new ventures in business. On the flip side, there may also be a case that due to their liberal attitude, they are never taken seriously. It is often perceived that they depend heavily on luck and risks, and sometimes, little importance is given to hard work and security. But, although being tactless and direct, they are admired for their charm, and fair and optimistic nature.
Andrew Carnegie, Ben Stiller, Brad Pitt, Bruce Lee, Britney Spears, Dale Carnegie, John Milton, Jane Austen, Jimi Hendrix, Karl Benz, Steven Spielberg, Tyra Banks, Winston Churchill, etc., are some of the famous Sagittarians.
As love for freedom is one of the basic and inborn Sagittarius traits, do not ever think of keeping them tied down by using your charms or sentimentality, as it can only make them go away. When given a free rein, a Sagittarian can be your best buddy, talkative and helpful friend, and the most romantic partner you can ever have!
