Sagittarius Characteristics and Profile

Sagittarians have a certain viewpoint in life, are full of liveliness, flexibility, exciting activity and eagerness to encounter the new and different. They take pleasure in traveling and exploration; they are determined and positive, even in the mug of displeasure... Their powerfully unrealistic natures can as well undergo many disappointments without being affected. They are praiseworthy, truthful, honest, straightforward, bighearted and sincere, with a fervor for fairness. They are more often than not on the side of the small fry in the social order they will clash for any reason they believe to be just, and are ready to be unruly. They weigh up faithfulness with self-sufficiency.

Sagittarians are frequently unexceptional and are often spiritual, with a strapping sense of principles; even if they are likely to exaggerate the ethical codes they pursue and devote with beliefs about God to a certain extent than God Himself. This means that, with a denial, they look upon inflexible, unloving, prejudiced devotion to ritual and conventional codes as more valuable than the truths they represent or exemplify. They occasionally pay lip service to religions and political parties in which they have a stop to believe since the obvious forms gratify them, still they may not be uncertain to exchange loyalty in politics or adjust their system of faith if they see the individual benefit to themselves in doing so.

Sagittarius is the Archer and a lot of war conquerors were born in this sign. There are also lots of artists and entertainers born below this sign, such as Beethoven, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Georges Seurat. Winston Churchill, baseball legend Ty Cobb and publishing tycoon William Randolph Hearst were all born under the sign of Sagittarius.

Within relationships, Sagittarians are consistent and will roughly not at all give up their partners. They are kind and forbearing, even though they are prone to anger and outbursts. Efficiently, they make outstanding teachers and philosophers. Earlier than the development of the vehicle, they were supposed to be superb with horses. This would make some sense, as the sign for Sagittarius is a centaur, half man and half horse.

Element: Fire

Fire signs are naturally warm. A fire gives light and heat, but it doesn't get depleted as others feed on its warmth. One candle can bring light to a room and it won't burn any faster if ten people read from its light than if there was only one. Fire doesn't plan its next move; it isn't logical. It simply is in the moment and will burn what fuel is available without judgment or forethought. For this reason, fire signs can successfully rely on their intuition and survival instincts.

The fire of Sagittarius is warming, not hot -- but that's because it's far away. It's like a light in the distance that reminds us why we are heading in that direction or the stars that have been used for navigation. This is the fire of inspiration whose heat can motivate the mind to reach out into the wilderness.

Ninth House: Travel

If the Third House is the House of Quick Trips, then the opposite Ninth House could be called the House of Long Distance Journeys. It's about foreign travel, higher education -- for that's travel in the mind and the potential adventure that the future holds.

Key Planet: Jupiter

Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system and as such symbolizes an expansive action. He is the king of bigger, better and more. But, of course, too much of a good thing isn't necessarily good, and Jupiter can encourage us to overspend or overindulge. Jupiter acts as a magnifying lens and can make a little opportunity to look larger than life. As the key planet of Sagittarius, Jupiter encourages us to take those opportunities, to live life as an adventure and to believe in something greater than ourselves.

Your Biggest Strength: Your undying optimistic attitude.
Your Potential Weakness: Glossing over problems or avoiding difficult situations.

Friendship Compatibility

You're the quintessential free spirit, and people admire the firm grip you maintain on your independence. In turn, you cherish friends who respect your freedom and add excitement to your life, such as vivacious Leo and fearless Aries. Virgo offers the structure you need to channel your energy into something productive. If you're looking for a confidante or a "BFF," it is essential to have someone in your life who not only understands your need for a long leash but who also is busy enough to maintain an active life away from yours. Gemini is ideal for you, and so is Pisces or Virgo.

Sagittarius Relationships

Sagittarius Women

Daring and fun-loving, Sagittarian women exude an outdoorsy, "Let's go!" attitude. This motivates men to chase them -- sometimes even around the globe. Ruled by optimistic Jupiter, you're always ready with a laugh or a funny story. Because you're constantly changing and evolving, your guy never knows what you're going to do next. Like Sagittarians Marisa Tomei and Bette Midler, you know your own mind and have spirited opinions, which makes for stimulating debates that'll get his juices pumping.

Your sexiest self comes out in nature; take your guy horseback riding or to the archery range as a prelude to intimacy. Because you love to be on the move, a train trip or boat ride can also amp up the action. Best of all, explore a foreign country together or study a subject that stimulates your higher mind -- you'll be up hours discussing the exciting new things you've discovered. With you, the future is always bright -- and that's the biggest turn-on of all!

Sagittarius Men

This guy has the call of the wild in his soul, and that far-off look in his eye is part of his attraction. Think of Sagittarian Brad Pitt in 'Legends of the Fall' or 'Seven Years in Tibet,' and you'll understand the Archer's outdoorsy appeal. "Don't fence me in" is his motto. Like his animal, the horse, he responds well to gentle caresses and soothing words. Yet some may find him too hard to pin down.

The Archer is well read and well traveled, and he's a born teacher, too. He's also strong and appealingly muscular. Ruled by optimistic Jupiter, he tends to look on the bright side of things and can pull you out of a funk in no time flat. His natural wit and storytelling abilities are thrilling. He's not what you'd call predictable, but this can make him irresistible. If you share his adventures but are also independent enough to let him be free, this man will adore you. Let him go off on his cross-country motorcycle rides or fishing expeditions, and he'll be more than happy to come home to you.

Compatibility Between the Sheets

Fun loving, adventurous and risk-taking, Sagittarius is always up for just about anything. Aquarius' inventive nature keeps just one step ahead of the sign of the Archer, creating day time dalliances and evening encounters that no one else could even come close to dreaming up. Sagittarius loves feeling slightly off-kilter and is electrified by Aquarius' unusual approach to love and sex. Between the two of them, this pair can just about create lightning when they really get going.
