Conscious: Adventurous and enthusiastic. Positive and optimistic. Humorous and high-minded.
Unconscious: Sagittarius lives by a no-filter approach to life – and that often can come at the price of other people’s feelings.
Loves: Travel. Culture. Food. Books. Political debates and discussions. Being right.
Hates: Feeling tied down or caged in. Focusing on tiny details. Humorless people or situations.
Whether it’s an impromptu weekend getaway or deciding to get hitched on a whim in Vegas, Sagittarius craves freedom and adventure. They want to explore. They want to live. They want to take in all that life has to experience. The details, the planning, the worry, that’s for other signs. For Sagittarius, it’s all about the journey and exploration.
We know that one of the keywords when it comes to Sagittarius is “big” – and that’s exactly how to describe their laughter. Big belly laughs. Whether it’s an inside joke, a light roast, or an over-the-top tall tale, Sagittarius wants to have a good time. Part of that good time is making sure everyone is laughing and in on the joke.
Sagittarius always takes the long view – and that gives them much-needed and admirable perspective on things. They know that time moves quickly, life is short, and that what goes up, must come down. It’s what makes them fundamentally believe that tough times do not last and if they keep going, they will get through it. A Sagittarius will always bet on themselves – and win.
It is likely that when dealing with a Sagittarius you will never have to ask them what they’re thinking. As bold and boisterous people, they will have no qualms about telling you in no uncertain times what is on their minds. The phrase “no filter” was likely generated from someone who had just been stunned by being on the receiving end of a Sagittarius’s very direct opinion that could likely have been delivered with a bit more sensitivity.
Ruled by Jupiter, everything about Sagittarius is big. Their voices are loud, their opinions are bold, and their beliefs, while high-minded, can err on the side of rigid and dogmatic. With Sagittarius you often are dealing with a larger-than-life persona who is very set in their ways of thinking, doing, and believing. And you can’t convince them otherwise.
When taken too far, the same adventurous spirit that defines Sagittarius can lead them towards extremes. They are naturally inclined towards defiance, and if they are not deliberately breaking the rules, they are certainly bending them to their will. Sagittarius is the kind of person who will take the risk and ask questions later. They believe it’s better to seek forgiveness than ask for permission. Though asking for forgiveness can also be quite difficult for them as well. For them, there’s no reward without the risk.
Sagittarius lives for the moment – and needs a partner who can keep up with the restless nature and adventurous spirit. Commitment can be a tricky issue for Sagittarius, but not impossible or even unlikely. Ensuring that their needs as an individual are not subsumed by a joint identity as a couple will go a long way in reassuring them that you’re not trying to change them. They want to be loved, unequivocally, for who they are.
If you’re out with a Sagittarius, they will be the ones rallying you for another round or to stay for a bit longer. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to have the same exact opinions as they do. You are merely required to have the same outlook and energy as they do when it comes to passionately defending your point of view. For them, discussion and debate are half the fun of going out. Having someone who just agrees with them all the time will likely be boring – and with friends, they prioritize fun first.
If you want someone to plan the long-term vision of your company and a general roadmap of the goals to get there, you want a Sagittarius on your team. If you’re looking for someone who is going to plan out every minute detail, they will not necessarily be your go-to. In the workplace, Sagittarius will not tolerate being micromanaged as they need freedom to experiment, try new things, and even make mistakes, as they believe that growth comes from experience.
