Sagittarians are always on a quest for knowledge. The last fire sign of the zodiac, Sagittarius launches its many pursuits like blazing arrows, chasing after geographical, intellectual, and spiritual adventures. Fuelled by wanderlust, these archers can be found traversing all corners of the world on thrill-seeking expeditions. Sagittarius is a mutable sign, meaning it is associated with adaptability and flexibility. This perfectly reflects the archers’ deep-rooted desire for change. Sagittarians are born to explore, and it is critical that these archers have the freedom to roam.
It’s no surprise that Jupiter, the planet of abundance, spirituality, and growth, governs Sagittarius. With so many journeys under their belt, Sagittarians are excellent storytellers and can light up any room with their exhilarating tales and infectious laughter. Effortlessly magnetic, they easily attract friends and lovers with their senses of humour. They’re the comedians of the zodiac and infuse all of their conversations with wit and “no bullshit” bluntness. While their bon mots are unmatched, Sags must remember to keep their sharp tongues in check. Though they know a lot, they don’t know everything — and if they’re not careful, they can come off as pretentious or arrogant.
[November 21st- December 22nd]
Optimistic and big dreamers!
I wouldn’t say I’m the most optimistic as I have a fair few down moments where I can get really in my head, but I’m definitely a dreamer.. it’s my name, after all!
Candid and honest.
So so on these two. I don’t think I’m any more or less honest than other people, but I can be candid at times. I like transparency and so that’s been something I’ve worked at implementing lately, especially online. I think it’s good to have the reality check.
Witty with a wicked sense of humour.
Oh my gosh, this is so me. I get told often that I should be a comedian. Humour comes easily to me.. always has really. Even when I’ve gone through dark times, I never lost that. I personally really love this about me.
Independent and hates being told how to live.
I have seen this a lot in me lately. I’m perfectly fine with being given advice and lessons and that kind of thing, but when it crosses over and starts to feel controlling or condescending, I can get defensive and cross!
Restless and impatient.
Honestly, I don’t think so. This is probably the first trait that I don’t fit with at all.
Can read you like a book.
Yes and no. I do definitely find myself more perceptive though. I can pick up the way others are feeling and are sensitive to small changes. I think this is part of what makes me a great listener and someone to be around when you need a chat or some comfort.
Won’t tolerate BS.
Yes! As I’m getting older, I have less tolerance for mucking around and just general crap. If that’s what you’re here for, I’m out..
Can’t stand selfish people or sore losers.
Selfish people get on my nerves big time. I hate it in general when people make big deals of small things like sharing a little food or are stingy. Sore losers are annoying too. I guess it all comes down to character though.
Hard to fool- always 10 steps ahead!
Yes and no. I know I’m smart and can be hard to fool at times, but not always. Some things just go over my head!
Freedom seeking and hard to pin down.
I am quite freedom seeking. I hate being kept on a tight leash. I just want to be able to roam, explore and be really authentic. Hard to pin down.. yes and no. With the right things, I love commitment. In relationships, definitely.
Can be ruthless when seeking justice.
If I feel I’ve been wronged, I will stand up for myself and speak out. I’ve never been the sort to quieten down and let things pass. This doesn’t mean I’m hot headed though.
Aren’t afraid to take risks.
YES! I personally love taking risks.. even bigger ones, at times. In the future, I could possibly be a bit more careful with this side of me as I sometimes take risks that aren’t worth it. I’m definitely not afraid. They make life more interesting, but it’s always good to be careful. Just keep that balance, you know?
Creative and extremely curious.
Creative pursuits have been my thing for the longest time. It brings me so much joy to express myself through words, art, storytelling, movement, visuals.. all of it, really. It’s my non guilty pleasure.
Deep, philosophical thinkers.
This pretty much epitomises me. I’ve never been one for small talk or meaningless chit chat. I find deep, meaningful conversations to be thoughtful, refreshing and energising. I love being given the opportunity to consider things others might not. I’m a fan of the big existential questions. Some find these to be depressing, torturous or pointless but I like making sense of things and just really considering them.
Spontaneous and fun to be around!
I’d say so. Give me good company and the right setting and a really bright, fun, quirky side of me will come out! It’s always there but does need nurturing. Some places are safer than others!
Loves to prove people wrong.
Kind of, but not really. Unless someone has been fighting me on something I know I’m right about, I don’t think I’ll really get anything out of it.
Avoids petty drama and focuses on what’s important.
Yes! This side of me has a shown a lot this year. I very rarely cause fights or like to react unless absolutely necessary. I just generally won’t add fuel to fire or participate in conflict, but I will always stand up for myself. I just keep it in perspective, really. I value my relationships and peace of mind too much to let them be threatened by reckless negativity.
Careful about who they commit to.
While I’m not nearly as careful with my heart as I should be, I love fully, deeply and honestly. Even though I’ve experienced heartbreak in the past, I’ve stayed open and ready to receive something better.
Good at concealing their emotions.
I’m not very good at this as I don’t like to bottle up how I feel or suppress emotions.
Favours letting go of grudges.
In general, yes, but I feel like some grudges, if you can’t seem to let go of them, serve as an ongoing warning against particular people or circumstances whom you might have problems or a falling out with. I try my best to let go of anger or unhelpful emotions, but I wouldn’t want to forget either. When you’ve been shown a truth about something, It’s important to remember that.
Always there for loved ones.
Yes! If I care about you in any capacity, you can count on me being there as a friendly face, listening ear and helping hand. Cheesy as that sounds, I give love where and when it is given to me.
Adventurous and loves to experience new things.
Oh, for sure! I love excitement and spice in life. Trying new things and expanding my comfort zone is one of my favourite ways to introduce more of this into my life.
I’m honestly fairly surprised by how accurate these traits are for me. Before I really looked into this, I knew I could relate to a few things, but I didn’t see myself finding them all to be fitting. Overall, this was a lot of fun to put together.. I learnt a few things about myself, hehe!
