If Sagittarius is your Sun sign

The centaur that depicts your zodiac symbol represents the partial animal nature in you, and also your spiritual and philosophical craving for the all important truths of life. You are thought of as brave, enterprising and foresighted individuals. But still, you have an uncivilized taint to your personality and somehow tend to get into fights and arguments.
Your adventurous character is backed by a great inner enthusiasm and optimism which shows in your interactions and work. You tend to be a little irresponsible in your dealings and interactions and don’t apply your farsightedness to the repercussions of your own behavior. You have an impeccable honesty and this only instills in you a feeling that you are not answerable to anyone, and need not be afraid of anyone; this tends to make you a little outspoken too.

You have a huge self-respect that works in a inward sense and makes you quite independent and straight-forward. You also have a generous and nature-loving side to yourself that is not quite noticed. Your idealistic nature makes you very frank and fearless, but it also makes you tactless, unsophisticated and inconsistent in your work. Also, your impatience and boastful aggression help the situation. Perhaps a little more patience and sensibility will help you in your professional and domestic spheres.

Qualities that make you lucky are fearlessness, self-governing, sharpness, and gutsy. Qualities that hinder your success are aggressiveness, full of yourself, over-confidence, and contradictory.

Sagittarius Personality

The first thing one would observe about a Sagittarius is his/her amazing frankness and practicality. Generally people who call themselves practical tend to be polite in the more diplomatic sense, but for these guys, the practicality seems to stem from the frankness. Actually, if you cut open a Sagittarius (I mean psychologically), you’d find that what drives them most is their broad outlook, and their quick, positive grasping power of almost any kind of problem. But mind you, the one inclined to get the whole larger picture is liable to miss out on the minor details. They always thirst for challenges in life, and most of the time are restlessly looking for one. Another thing that makes them restless is the endless pursuit of something better. One moment, they might be completely happy with what they’ve got for themselves and the very next moment, they wish they could have had better.

Sagittarians are very caring and lively towards their loved ones, and have a great tendency of understanding their mistakes and learning from them. One very important thing the partner needs to understand here is that they love their freedom too much. Here the word freedom is used in a very different sense. The freedom does not refer to individuality or not wanting to change one’s way of life, it refers to the way in which a person wishes to express his/her love for his/her partner. And another aspect of this need for freedom is fear of closed spaces, in the psychological sense. Excessive possessiveness may take it’s toll on the Sagittarius.

Children of this sign happen to be a little prankish and need to be tamed. Otherwise, they are very brilliant and take their studies very seriously. The only thing is that at an early age, there should be a balance of studies and outdoor activities for proper development of the individual. The parents have the responsibility of ensuring this.

Sagittarius in Friendship

As a friend, the Sagittarian’s greatest gift is his/her liveliness. Sagittarius are very enthusiastic and diligent, and for this reason, they can very easily encourage their friends to keep trying and making the most out of their opportunities. They love to see their friends fighting with all the spirit and verve, and derive strength from their strength. That’s why they say enthusiasm is a very infectious thing.

But if you are in the Sagittarian’s position, the enthusiasm will sometimes come in your way of trying to listen to your friends.The thing is sometimes, you just don’t need to lift up their spirits or anything, you just need to lend them an ear. You, out of all, will find that hard to understand, and learn only with time. Instead of listening, you give your friends ideas and tell them what they already know, and they think you are playing ‘Mr. Fix It’. Of course it’s hard for them to appreciate it all the time! Another problem that arises from this facet of yours is your inability to share your problems with others. Burying them will seem to help for some time, as you maintain your ‘giver of light and hope’ kind of image; but at some point, you just need to let go of your ego and lighten up, spit it out.

Another thing about the Sagittarius is that he/she loves challenges and cannot stand the sight of a talent being wasted. So, they need friends who are hustling and bustling and busy all the time; people who take their lives easy, and do things half-heartedly are not for them. They hate half-hearted! But as you may see, given a friend group, there will always be the ‘laid back Jim’. Besides, it’s not always about the friends living up to your expectations – it’s about you measuring up and adjusting to your circle of friends that you picked with your own hands. So, Sagittarius need to learn to keep boredom and restlessness out of their demeanor – these things will only bring frustration to the them and their peers, and lead to no constructive activity.

Sagittarius in Love

It is very characteristic of Sagittarius to fall in love, or fall in something of the kind, and then feel that may be it’s just a temporary thing, a phase. What’s happening here is that you are naturally in love with your physical and emotional independence, to a degree that you can’t imagine. So, when those feelings crop up inside you for someone, there is some part of you that always tells you not to risk that freedom of yours if it’s not worth it. So you keep telling yourself that this one is not the one. You stop yourself from pressing on, and the other person gets the feeling that you are not so into him/her. Being too much into someone too fast is not too good either, but your at the other extreme. So you need to do the balancing act. And experience teaches you how. You teach yourself that the only way to find out if someone is the one, is to try even at the risk of a heartbreak!

Once in a relationship, we again see Sagittarius vigorous and enthusiastic side. That’s right – you are too sexed up not to get bored in relationships. This can happen in a variety of situations – say if the partner is not imaginative sexually, or if there is little else to the relationship other than the sexual act. In both cases, you will enjoy yourself for as long as the initial spark lasts, and after that start to feel unfulfilled and restless. At this point, you will give in much more easily than others to the boredom, and end the relationship.

There is also the disturbing trait of duality in relationships exhibited by Sagittarius. To the world, this can be seen in the form of two simultaneous relationships. Of course, if at all you do it, you will do it just to reassure yourself of your independence from any one person. You would want to tell yourself that you don’t need anyone emotionally. But that is not a very healthy line of thought. Moreover, the companions will see it as an act of betrayal.

Sagittarius in Marriage

First things first – Sagittarius cannot go along with someone who is not as busy and lively as they are, even if the other person is not as busy, he/she definitely needs to share some strong interest with Sagittarius. Otherwise, it will be very difficult for Sagittarius to keep inventing new things to keep the partnership alive. So, their need for change and excitement is prominent here too. But look at the positive side – at least their marriage will not stagnate as it happens with many couples in due course. All you need to do is to respond to your needs – how you do that is left to your imagination.

Now we come to the other aspect of your attitude to marriage – your claustrophobia. You love your freedom and cannot stand being emotionally closed off. So in spite of your strong ties with your spouse, you will want to go out with friends of both sex, and keep relations with your workmates intact. Now one emotion you hate more than any other is that of suspicion. You are never suspicious of your partner, and also hate it when your partner is suspicious of you. You see where this is going? You do not show restrain in the way you interact with people, and then you despise your spouse if he/she is suspicious, when it is entirely natural for him/her to feel so. Herein lies the root of some of the most bitter fights between married couples.

Sagittarians make great parents, especially when the kids are grown up and thirst for challenges. But at the early stages, when the demands are too high, the Sagittarius needs to take a break and do something totally different that can make life a little less boring and monotonous. The ties and bonds related mothering or fathering a child can really frustrate a person of this sun-sign, so there is a need to weather this phase out with one’s imagination and enthusiasm.

Sagittarius Career and Money Profile

When it comes to career issues, the Sagittarius set of needs is very generic – constant change, constant challenge and the freedom to express one’s ingenuity. In addition, they are also known for having a great variety of talent and potential. So like all other sun-signs, you will find people of this sun-sign in many walks of life. This last need for freedom of expression is particularly strong in them. They hardly have a problem with tense situations and deadlines, but they definitely need a free hand in carrying out their duties in a manner of their choosing. If this doesn’t happen, if they find their bosses sticking their noses into what they consider to be none of their business, and especially if they consider their bosses imbeciles with power, they will find it very hard to reach the pinnacles of their capability.

The characteristic liveliness of Sagittarius can be expressed in two different ways – in terms of physical vigor and enthusiasm or in terms of intellectual and imaginative stretch. Sometimes the two can be seen in the same person, if only in different points in his life. He might start out as a physically capable person putting in a lot of energy in meeting up to challenges, and the learning with experience to become a strategic player who tackles the intellectual side of problems. This brings us to another aspect – the wonderful thirst to learn throughout one’s life. Sagittarians seem to be full of it – they have this eternal student inside them on whom not even a single lesson of life goes waste. They look at their job and career as a continuous flurry of opportunities to learn and perfect themselves, rather than breaks for greater achievement or accumulation of wealth. For them, it’s a process. And for this very reason, they are not just ready for challenges but they actually turn everything into challenge.

Here, the Sagittarius can be seen as someone who is versatile and at the same time restless. As a result, they want change, but sometimes the change might just be for the sake of it. In such situations, they need to ask themselves if the change is actually warranted, and if they are changing things just to add to their versatility, then have they got a good enough grip on the job that they are presently in to add anything to their versatility?

    Sagdes are usually not that jealous, but if he is feeling insecure about any aspect of his life, they can definitely act out. As a Sadge lady dating other Sadge guys, I find asking them to show me a favorite hobby of theirs helps to restore some peace as Sadges like to share their knowledge on anything and everything, and will help to build his confidence. If it is an outdoor hobby, even better. I find that if I can get them outside, they tend to mellow out and open up. He may bring up the issues himself if he’s feeling comfortable enough.

    My mother is Sagittarius, she’s had a tough life, but her personality is so powerful and has kept her strong to this day. I believe being a Sagittarius is ideal for a multi-business owner. It takes a tough person to take on challenges as she does. As for my father and her, I see no issues, but hot-headed arguments. She can be stubborn, but that’s how she raised all five of us so well. All she does is care for her loved ones, I cannot express that enough. No matter how much trouble my siblings and I cause, she will be forgiving. Although, she is blunt and doesn’t realize the severity of her words, she means well most the time. Sagittarius is a fire sign and I, Scorpio, am water. When we work together to resolve issues it is truly wonderful, but when we argue it is horrendous. We have learned out differences, but especially learned our similarities. I don’t see what’s so bad about Sagittarius except for the hot-headedness and blunt opinions.
    You have no idea how much “sag” is bothering me. It makes me cringe so hard. Sag – Saggy Vag. Sagittarius is not that long of a word, dear lord.

  16. Vaporz June 17th, 2012

    @Mary. Mary we have difficulties working alone. We need others to work with. Find yourself people you can work with. It can be very difficult. If you have business idea’s find someone to help you make them work. You have all the idea’s now find somebody to put them to there full potential.

  17. Vaporz June 17th, 2012

       So that’s why I can’t work for others. I always get an imbicile boss. Can’t work under stupid people. If you have this problem as a saggi try using your intelligence and work for yourself. We can be good at it.

  18. cincere September 27th, 2011

    “inability to share your problems with others.”
    That sounds so like me! I don’t want them to feel worried about me so i take the step to deal my own issues.

  22. SteelyBlue27 May 27th, 2011

    WOW…I have to add this (Kellie)after reading your comment undoubtedly should be a writer!!

  23. SteelyBlue27 May 27th, 2011

    aside from that wonderful interpretation from ( kellie )
    out of all of the interpretations of personality traits of sag or the other signs including this one..((Linda Goodman))Is the very best here is an example of some of her interps:
    She may confuse you, but that’s nothing to what she does | to herself. Many a Sagittarius girl mistakes friendship for | love and love for friendship. If you’re one of those old-| fashioned men who prefer evasiveness and timidity in your i women, you’d better look for another Bingo partner. This young lady has bright, frank ways with men, and she’s not going to play any silly games of “Guess how I feel” or “Guess what I think!” How she feels and what she thinks are identical with how she acts and what she says. Her outspoken bluntness naturally causes misunderstand­ings, and a good share of fiery battles, let alone hurt feel­ings, but it doesn’t crush her spirit. Jupiter pride comes to the surface and rescues her in a crisis, allowing her to pass off her heartache as the biggest joke of the season. Inside, she may be weeping, but she’ll employ such clever wit in answering the questions of friends about the break that they’ll decide the whole affair was a harmless flirtation on her part. Little will they guess how she soaks her pillow every night, wondering what she could possibly have said that fractured everything. It might have been when she told him not to stop by her apartment the time he called from the lobby around midnight-because she was “busy talking with a man who had a few problems.” Actually, the man was her brother-in-law, but with the peculiar Sagit­tarius twist of leaving out the core of the story, she neg­lected to mention that. Why should she have to explain herself? (All Sagittarians show a raging, righteous anger when their integrity is doubted.) <—FANTASTIC

  24. SteelyBlue27 May 27th, 2011 with you (maru-chan)on the qualities/characteristics.I would love help out the writer of this analogy would hate for them to not add more of the good things.
    Were not always going to say the kind of things you want to hear. Most of the time, we’ll curl your sideburns with our remarkable, flat statements and embarrassing ques­tions. But now and then we’ll say something so special and splendid it will make you feel like singing
    You may need a sample. Scene: Coffee shop. You’ve just gotten up the courage to tell her you love her, but before you can say it, she looks at you with wide-open, guileless blue eyes-or forthright, steady brown ones- and asks you curiously, “How do you feel about being so short? Does it make you neurotic or anything?” While you’re gulping, trying manfully to recover, she’ll add, “You shouldn’t care about it. Lots of men were short. Like Napoleon. And Fiorello LaGuardia.” That’s almost adding insult to injury, but before you get a chance to walk out, thinking no woman ever deserved such ungallant treatment more, shell muse dreamily, “I hate men who look like bean poles. You’re perfect. I noticed when we were walking over here tonight-we measure just right together.”
    Sit back down. You’re staying. For a long time. A friendly, frank Sagittarius girl has just wound herself around your heart with her own, peculiar brand of charm. I could go on.

    I <3 Saggi They Really Are So SWEET And I Feel So Safe When Im In The Arms Of My Saggi Frenn. I Just Feel Like I Can Be Myself And Open Up A Little To Him And If You Are Virgo Like Me Then You Know That's A BIG Deal When You Feel Comfty Opening Your Self And Feelings Up To Somone Especially One Of The Oppsite Sex.

  26. Mary April 5th, 2011

    I am sagaittarian as mentioned above there is a constant change in my career which is very tiring. I want and crave to be very rich indeed but I do not know what and how will my future be. I am very ambicous and crave to possess a house of my own and well settled in life.
    Please let me know will all my dreams come true.



  27. kellieborriello February 23rd, 2011

    A Sag’s intuition is based on the “knowing” inside our hearts. That is where the truth lies. We have the courage to believe in it, even if we stand alone. That’s the freedom loving essence of a Sag. It’s easy for us to see the struggles of another, because we feel it. It is difficult to witness pain and suffering of others. But sometimes we must, because the sufferage is essential for their growth. Sensitivity to the vulnerabilities of others and unconditional love for ourselves and others, is what enables Sag’s to be the true healers of the world.

    • MarcMedic September 21st, 2017

      I am pretty sure I’m in love with you Kellie, so let ‘the healing’ begin! I AM the Sagi’ in your description!
