Sagittarius Zodiac Sun Sign

November 22 - December 21

Sun in Sagittarius

Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the Western zodiac. Sagittarius is a fiery and mutable sign, known to bring memorably fun times to everyone they meet. Optimism and a spirit of adventure are gifts of the Sagittarius zodiac sign. Those born under Sagittarius are known as being one-part philosopher and one-part class clown, getting friends to laugh as often as they inspire deep conversation. They highly value their freedom and will bolt at the first sign of anyone trying to dull their spark. Sagittarius has a need to travel and experience all that the world has to offer them.

People born between November 22 and December 21 are represented by the centaur, an ancient symbol that combines both wisdom and wild abandon. The Sagittarius astrological sign falls under the element of Fire and is ruled by Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system. The phrase "go big or go home" must have been created by a Sagittarius. They don't do subtle and aren't satisfied with doing anything halfway. As a mutable sign, they're known for being highly changeable and adaptable people who can handle life's curveballs with aplomb. The flip side is that they are very restless and have a hard time with routine.

Ready to dig deeper into what lights a Sagittarius' fire? In true Sagittarius fashion, let's explore the rich layers of energies, symbols, planetary influences, personality, quirks, and compatibility of this adventurous, fiery energy whose fun personality has a magnetizing power of its own!

Sagittarius Symbolism and Meaning

Sagittarius is represented by a centaur archer. The Sagittarius symbol meaning is fitting, as centaurs can be seen to represent the merging of wildness and civilization. Sagittarius loves to wax philosophical, but they are also outgoing, social butterflies who hate restrictions. Also, like the archer that represents their sign, Sagittarius often has their eye on a faraway object, and they like to aim high. Missing their mark can also cause them to procrastinate. If it isn't going to be amazing, why bother? Sagittarius has a reputation for being impractical and something of a dreamer. But a motivated Sagittarius who deals with their shortcomings can often accomplish amazing things. Many of those born under the sign of the archer are visionaries, creating legacies that continue to inspire those who come after them. An optimistic sign, Sagittarius expects the best and manifests the expectation, no matter how high the archer points his arrow.

"A Sagittarius hardly holds grudges. If you ask one about it, he or she will tell you it's old news. They've already moved on." #SagittariusQuotes

Sagittarius Season, Element and Mode

Sagittarius Season is influenced by its Element, Fire, and its Mode, which is Mutable. If you are a Sagittarius, you'll experience these forces acting directly upon your personality, and if you're not a Sagittarius, you'll benefit from the energy of Sagittarius Season supporting you in your endeavors.

Sagittarius Season

To understand the gifts of Sagittarius Season, reflect for a moment on how the cold and dark month leading up to Winer Solstice is waiting for the moment the sun will be 'reborn'. This is the light at the end of the tunnel we are waiting for. We know that after this point things will not get any darker. Sagittarius season reminds us that the light we are seeking is not so far away, and that optimism in its return is not foolish. It's time to have a little faith, start making plans for its return, and give ourselves permission to dream big dreams to chase after when the darkness finally leaves.

Everyone can benefit from the energy of Sagittarius Season, by checking in with yourself to see what really sets you on fire. What gives you tingles whenever you think about it? What dreams keep you going when you'd rather just stay in bed? Take the time to acknowledge them and write them down. Create a vision board for what you hope to attract to help you with your goals. In Sagittarius Season, you have the vision of the archer to help you hit your mark.

Sagittarius Element

We take in the spark of creation from the element of Fire into our body and are inspired---to think new thoughts, create new things. Like its element, Sagittarius knows how to grow a spark to a flame. They love entertaining new flickers of ideas and possibilities and seeing where it takes them. Everything we see around us, large and small, started out as just an idea in someone's head. Fire invites us to boldly embrace our dreams. Sagittarius knows that the sky is the limit when it comes to dreams. They are delighted when they find others who are willing to join them on their journey of pure imagination. However, as you may have already guessed, Sagittarius is not the most grounded of signs. A touch of reality has the potential to rain all over this Fire Sign's parade.

Sagittarius Mode

Sagittarius Mode is Mutable, meaning that the Sun enters Sagittarius at the end of the fall season. Mutable signs are changeable, adaptable, and flexible which helps them better navigate the ups and downs of life. Combined with the quick flicker of their fiery element, Sagittarius are among the most adaptable and the most restless of all the signs. They handle change beautifully but sometimes have difficulty keeping focused on one thing. A wise Sagittarius will be aware of this propensity, honoring their amazing visions for the future, but making sure to take time for a reality check every now and then.

Sagittarius Ruling Planet

Jupiter, the supreme god of the Roman pantheon, is the ruler of Sagittarius. Jupiter's energy is masculine, expansive, philosophical, and lucky. Jupiter, massive in size and energy, influences Sagittarius to think big. With Jupiter as the ruling planet, Sagittarius has a leg up in finding the right circumstances to test out their big visions. They often attract people to support their big ideas because of their infectious enthusiasm for them. Like Sagittarius's ruling planet, these individuals have a strong philosophical streak. Sagittarius can be compared to an awe-stuck child constantly asking "Why?" Jupiter's energy gives them a fair measure of confidence and swagger over their mental skills. It isn't unwarranted, but Sagittarius needs to watch that they don't come across as too intense sometimes.

Sagittarius Ruling House

The Ninth House of the zodiac is associated with a desire for knowing---knowing what it's like to travel to different places, knowing what the answers are to life's big questions, knowing what comes next. It is the House associated with the philosopher, teacher, and publisher, and also the educational system, judicial system, international commerce, and travel. This gives to Sagittarius an almost voracious need to chase down all the answers. With the Sun in the Ninth House of Sagittarius, your beliefs (or lack of them) make up a core part of your identity, whether it's as a true believer in a specific faith or as a staunch materialist. You love immersing yourself in the philosophical corners of your chosen spiritual system, and often (sometimes to the chagrin of your loved ones) aren't all that quiet about it.

"Nothing about a Sagittarius-born is boring. They know how to get the party started." #SagittariusQuotes

Sagittarius Traits and Characteristics

All of the astrological factors come together to define the pattern of Sagittarius traits and characteristics that make up their personality. While Sagittarius characteristics may be expressed in nuanced ways based on common social patterns of gender, the basic construct can be universally applied to understand Sagittarius men and Sagittarius women alike.

Sagittarius Personality

Sagittarius traits include being fun-loving, spontaneous, and sagacious. They're highly intelligent and need constant mental stimulation. Sagittarius is unrestrained in all their passions. They are anything but boring, always having a wild idea or two ready to take out for a test drive.

Known for their sense of humor, they're often the center of attention, regaling a crowd with a story of adventure that has everyone laughing. Bring up their favorite topic and they are likely to talk your ear off about it. But Sagittarius is more than just a wild child. They love the after-party scenes too, where people stay up talking late into the night, discussing the meaning of the universe. Sagittarius welcomes a bit of robust debate, but they can be hard to dissuade from a point of view they've given their whole heart to.

What Sagittarius fears are being forced into a corner, getting caught in a rut, and being controlled. With a Sagittarius zodiac sign as your Sun Sign, you tend to act dramatically and decisively against anything you think threatens your freedom. You will not be forced into anything, a job, a religion, a relationship, unless you darn well want to. Foolish is the person who gives Sagittarius an ultimatum. Sagittarius may have a knee-jerk reaction when confronted with something that demands a measure of responsibility but is always able to figure it out.

Sagittarius a sign on a quest for adventure, especially if it involves breaking new ground, making new discoveries, and seeking the truth. Sometimes, Sagittarius isn't quite sure what they're seeking, only that their restlessness keeps driving them forward, always in a hurry. They never dwell on consequences. With Sagittarius, there's no fear of the unknown, and there's no looking back. They're adaptable, resilient, and able to accomplish whatever they've set their mind to.

Sagittarians are known for being friendly and honest. They give without expectation of return. They'll tell you exactly what they are thinking and although they tend to be blunt, they're also insightful and there's always truth in their observations. They're fast thinkers, and always have ideas, resources, and wisdom to share. When angered their words can be hurtful. Fortunately, this happy go lucky sign is slow to anger and quick to let bygones be bygones.

If there's a Sagittarius in your life, you know they can appear extroverted, wildly enthusiastic, and perhaps a little spacey. Recognize that they need their freedom to feel fully alive. Sagittarius is happiest when they are given time and space to dream. Force them to settle before they're ready and they'll be off before you can blink. Allow them to choose where they land and watch them thrive. They can and will make a commitment to their dreams and someone who supports them.

"Even when they settle down, Sagittarius men and women like to keep a small corner of their life just for themselves." #SagittariusQuotes

Sagittarius Man

The Sagittarius man personality is fun and often larger than life. He can spin a good yarn or two about all his adventures. You may wonder if they are strictly true, but you won't be bored. He's a dreamer, no doubt, and can show you amazing sights if you come along with him. Just remember, Sagittarius may choose to slow down to focus his passion on the right dream---or the right person---but if he feels in any way that he is being coerced or corned, he's gone.

The Sagittarius man can be a beguiling player, whose honest confessions are among his go-to moves. Sagittarius does like to pursue potential partners, but his charisma often means he has more than one pursuer. He's just so much fun to be around. He doesn't deny himself enjoyable experiences, and often is very experienced in the arts of lovemaking. He is extremely respectful of his partner's boundaries because he hates it when people test his. He's a dynamic lover, unafraid to explore his sexuality fully. No, he doesn't settle down quickly (and he hates the word settle) but he will be happy to choose a partner in fun as ready to enjoy the world as much as he does.

The Sagittarius man is a very passionate Fire sign, so prefers a partner who brings an equal amount of intensity to the relationship. He would much rather that his partner has their own life and interests that he can hear more about rather than have them just suddenly adopt his. Or worse, feign interest in them. He respects an independent mind and enjoys spending time in their presence. You can read more about the rewards and challenges of Loving a Sagittarius Man in this article by Psychic Iris which further describes Sagittarius man characteristics.

Sagittarius Woman

With Jupiter as her ruling planet, the personality traits of the Sagittarius woman embody adventurousness and enthusiasm. The Sagittarius woman has a pioneering spirit and enjoys taking chances. Spontaneous, impulsive, and always in the thick of things, she likes to challenge stereotypes as often as she can. Just when you think you've got her figured out, she'll change course again.

The Sagittarius woman shares the wanderlust of her male counterpart, so she isn't often at home. Her household can look like a wild display of unfinished creative projects, or like something a tornado hit (probably both). She may be fond of saying things like life is too interesting to worry about having a photoshoot-ready home. She's ready to drop everything and head off to someplace new in a moment's notice and is great at traveling light. She usually has a strong Bohemian vibe to her and likes comparisons to having a gypsy soul.

Get to know her first as a friend and fellow adventurer. Surprise her with spontaneous outings, travel plans, and gifts. Accept that the need for space comes with the territory. Don't start talking about commitment before she's ready; if she's not, bringing up marriage or children is sure to be a passion-killer. The Sagittarius woman is exceedingly independent but can commit to someone who appreciates her carefree spirit and can keep up with her.

Sagittarius Strengths

Logical and perceptive, this intellectual sign is a born leader, a risk-taker, and a wise problem solver. Sagittarius strengths are as dynamic, fun, and passionate individuals who love inviting others to be part of their free-spirited circle and inspiring them to think more creatively. They're fascinated by religion, social issues, sex and sexuality, and philosophy, and love discussing these subjects. Indeed, they are knowledgeable about a wide range of topics, from current events to sports to different cultures and cuisines, but never at a superficial level, for Sagittarius always strive for a deeper understanding, finding the purity of truth and wisdom. They earnestly seek purpose and meaning. They are the dreamers and visionaries who make the future possible. Without people like Sagittarius, we wouldn't have the technological innovations that make our lives easier or the art that makes it enjoyable.

Sagittarius also loves taking a mentoring role. They are excited to have a hand in nurturing the spark of creativity and innovation in others. Their philosophical inclinations and life experiences can make an actualized Sagittarius quite wise. In their more serious moods, they are wonderful listeners who ask insightful questions and give great advice. Though not an especially emotional sign they do possess natural emotional intelligence. Those born under the influence of the Sagittarius zodiac are a mixture of wisdom and whimsy, enriching the world with their presence.

Sagittarius Weaknesses

Sagittarius's blithe spirit can have its drawbacks too, often resulting in flakiness, irresponsibility, and callousness. Sagittarius is easily distracted by the big picture, losing sight of the details. They can change their minds so often they come across as unreliable or fickle. In their defense, everything they said was true when they said it, but circumstances change. They can be oblivious to their surroundings and impatient when others hold back their feelings. Depending on how emotionally aware they are, they may be hypersensitive to anything that feels like its cramping their style. They can pull a disappearing act with no explanations given if they feel they are being too restricted or held back in any way.

Another Sagittarius weakness is to become so passionate about a thing or project that they lose all sense of objectivity. They may assume because they've had such a breadth of life experiences that they are the final word on a given topic. One area where they are very susceptible to this pitfall is spirituality. Their passion can become full-blown zealotry to promote their particular brand or belief or non-belief. If a Sagittarius can maintain a reasonable perspective on their wisdom and hold their egos in check, they can avoid wild-eyed rambling that has others running in the other direction when they approach.

If you're a Sagittarius, you may have a difficult time taking advice. You may be so used to running late, feeling agitated, getting distracted and improvising on your feet that you lose your own center. You may struggle to keep promises because circumstances change, and you feel you shouldn't be held to something which is no longer valid. If you don't learn to slow down, it's easier for you to see what others are doing wrong and criticize than to recognize that you've lost your way. Growth comes from developing the discipline to pause and look inward, instead of trying to correct other people's way of thinking or running off to your next adventure.

"Sagittarius may grow up, grow old. But they are always a wild child on the inside." #SagittariusQuotes

Sagittarius in a Relationship

We all need a friend who will talk us out of our bad ideas. Sagittarius isn't one of them---especially if the idea promises to be a lot of fun and won't hurt anyone too much (they hope) in the end. Anything that has the promise of being a good time is going to lure a Sagittarius in like a moth to a flame. They live by the idea that life is too short to be taken seriously. But when things do turn serious, Sagittarius has a surprising amount of depth and wisdom they are happy to share with their (often large and international) circle of friends.

As a lover, Sagittarius is a passionate and uninhibited lover, hoping to find a match with the same level of worldly exposure, high moral values, intellectual capacity, open-mindedness, and independence as their own. Like Aquarius, Sagittarius is keenly interested in social good and human rights, so meeting a match who can engage at that level is a total turn-on. Expect a long courtship as Sagittarius is renowned for getting married late in life. Marriage is a big commitment that this sign does not take lightly.

In some ways, it's not so much that they fear commitment. Sagittarius is someone capable of putting their heart and soul into a dream. They just will not settle for anything less than the right person, along with high energy, heart palpitating, fireworks inducing magic. Love assets for the Sagittarius Sun Sign are passion, intensity, and imagination. The love challenges for those born under the Sagittarius zodiac sign are being unrealistic, flighty, and irresponsible.

Dating a Sagittarius

Sagittarius are born flirts. Playfully intellectual, they tease with wit and subtlety. There's always a hidden prospect of excitement, adventure, and sex that is subtext to dancing, touching, and passionate conversation.

In dating, Sagittarius has fun both in the chasing and being chased. They can get addicted to the rush of a fledgling relationship, where everything is a mystery they're still working out. Sagittarius can fall into a pattern of casual hookups or serial monogamy where they bop from partner to partner until they find The One who makes their mind work, their toes curl, and above all, is never boring. You almost must get in the mindset that you'll be courting Sagittarius throughout the whole life of the relationship. But they will return the intensity and effort you put into it. Don't expect a Sagittarius to make a commitment quickly. Though things will get physical fast, they will want to take the time to have long talks and memorable outings to make sure that you can keep up with their free spirit without trying to tame them.

Sagittarius favorite dates tend to be energetic and fun-filled. They like things that appear to their inner kid, like roller skating, challenging their dates in an arcade, or a trip to an amusement park. If the date goes well, they'll love to spend some downtime afterward, talking about everything and nothing in particular.

Sagittarius Expectations in Relationship

For those born under the Sagittarius Sun Sign, love is a thrill ride alongside the person they love best. They love falling in love. What they don't love is partners who demand too much of them, ask them to compromise their dreams, or issue ultimatums. All of those are the quickest way to make Sagittarius lose interest. Once a Sagittarius has decided that you are really able to give them the love that they need without making them feel tied down, they will happily stay. After all, a party is no fun with one guest, and Sagittarius approaches life as the biggest and greatest party of all.

In their inimitable style, Sagittarius puts all their cards on the table -- their likes, dislikes, expectations, and so on. They expect honesty and directness in return. Sagittarius hates being lied to and shows their anger through sarcasm versus emotional outburst. They expect their partner to tell them what they are feeling but be aware they don't keep secrets well. If you share a secret, no matter how vulnerable it makes you feel, don't assume that your Sagittarius won't include it in relaying their next tale with family or friends. They don't do it to be hurtful but suddenly it's out, and they may think you're over-reacting or trying to control them when you get upset. Better to be clear about your expectations for privacy when sharing with a Sagittarius.

Sagittarius also expects their partner to be faithful, even though they themselves are among the most flirtatious signs of the zodiac. Their proud nature will keep them from acknowledging their jealousy, but they cannot handle their partner cheating on them. They'll expect friends to take sides -- their side specifically. Infidelity is perhaps the one thing a Sagittarius can never forgive nor forget.

When matched with a faithful and compatible partner, Sagittarius is a very attentive partner who will fight to protect the relationship.

Sagittarius and Sex

Sagittarius is an uninhibited lover who loves exploring the sexual connection between them and their partner. They don't have much use for any concept of shame when there is so much delight to be had. Curious about certain things? Sagittarius is very happy to investigate them alongside you, judgment free. They are quite fond of spontaneous quickies to keep sparks flying between them and their lover.

In lovemaking, Sagittarius likes to seduce, initiate and be in control. With such strong physical and mental energy, sex is not about emotional union and release. While they are intuitive lovers, they expect a partner to be confident and express their needs openly.

Best Compatibility with Sagittarius

Fiery and free-spirited, the most compatible signs with Sagittarius are other Fire Signs -- specifically Aries and Leo, and Air Signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius, who help their fiery spark grow to its full potential. The least compatible signs with Sagittarius are Earth and Water Signs -- Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. One fatal attraction is Sagittarius and the Earth sign Capricorn. Personality differences create sexual tension, but once consummated, they're simply too opposite to make it work.

Keep in mind that compatibility is driven by more than your Sun Sign and its associated Element and Mode. Knowing where the Ascendant, Moon, and Venus appear in your chart and that of your partner or person of interest can help you understand zodiac combability at a deeper level as these positions can mitigate or overcome incompatibility at the Sun Sign level.

Sagittarius Sagittarius

Sagittarius and Sagittarius

One Sagittarius can support another in a way that's unrivaled by any other pairing. Who else understands the need for a passionate and fulfilling love that doesn't infringe on their freedom? Who else is free enough to not just come along on their adventures but to introduce new ones they hadn't thought of before? The trouble comes in one of two ways. Firstly, if they hold competing philosophical stances, they are going to have to find a way to agree to disagree. Secondly, someone must remember to pay the rent, wash the dishes, and deal with all that boring stuff. They'll need to learn to compromise here too and not shirk their responsibilities.

Sagittarius Aries

Sagittarius and Aries

There is a lot of heat between these two fire signs. The passion level is off the charts. They also seem to just 'get' each other. Aries is there for all of Sagittarius's wild exploration. And Sagittarius loves Aries' spontaneity. But Aries can get impatient with Sagittarius when they are in a wiser-than-thou mood and resent their lecturing. And Sagittarius isn't thrilled if Aries's passion takes on any sort of possessive aspect. Sagittarius must be willing to let their sermons go ungiven when Aries says enough. And Aries has to realize that big displays of possessiveness will only drive Sagittarius further away.

Sagittarius Leo

Sagittarius and Leo

This duo has optimism to spare. Sagittarius is enchanted by sunny Leo's ebullient energy. And Leo loves Sagittarius' devil may care approach to life. No one can tell either of these two how they should live! The lovemaking between them is passionate and unforgettable. Sometimes Leo may find themselves exasperated by Sagittarius's scruffier tendencies. And Sagittarius can be easily put off if Leo plays the demanding diva too often. But these two also have terrific senses of humor, and if they can find a way to gently laugh off each other's foibles without giving offense, they can go the distance as a couple.

Sagittarius Gemini

Sagittarius and Gemini

Both Sagittarius and Gemini share a passion for being exposed to new things. Gemini loves the things they learn when they are out on an adventure together. Sagittarius admires Gemini's independent and intellectual spirit. Communication flows really well between the two, helping them strengthen their relationship. But because they both take pride in their agile brains, there's a chance for friction if they start getting territorial about their spheres of knowledge. Gemini can feel belittled when Sagittarius decides to start their preaching. And Sagittarius can feel unfairly attacked when Gemini retaliates and becomes cutting with their words. They need to remember the respect they have for one another and that there is no point to being adversaries. For example. Sagittarius can help Gemini make sense of all the facts that the Air Sign digs up and shares, and Gemini can coax Sagittarius from the intellectual ivory tower with the promise of a new adventure.

Sagittarius Libra

Sagittarius and Libra

Libra admires the way Sagittarius doesn't need anyone else's approval and Sagittarius loves the way Libra gracefully makes themselves at home in any crowd. These two are the champions of conversations that can go until all hours of the night. Intellectually, they are a match for each other, both loving to indulge in a good debate. The funny thing is both of them have the potential to take a friendly exchange of ideas too seriously, either hurting their partner or ending up hurt over things that were said. Libra needs to learn that the devil doesn't always need an advocate and that Sagittarius will be far happier if Libra speaks up when they are hurt so they can deal with it together. Sagittarius needs to learn that they don't need to 'win' every debate and that they stand a lot to lose when they become too dogmatic. They need to be accepting of their differences and get a higher level of tolerance for them.

Sagittarius Aquarius

Sagittarius and Aquarius

When Sagittarius and Aquarius first meet, they sometimes feel like they've known each other forever, in the best possible way. They are both at home in the world of intellect and see themselves as citizens of the world. Extroverts by nature, they love seeking out new things to explore and new people to meet. They're also likely to describe themselves as rebels and see the other as a kindred spirit in the fight against conformity. Sagittarius grows fonds of Aquarius' quirkiness and Aquarius respects Sagittarius' untamable spirit. But knowing about their mutual dislike of feeling tied down can actually have them distrusting each other! They need to overcome their discomfort of anything that smacks too much of the c-word (commitment) and realize that checking in with the way the other is feeling (and checking in on their own feelings) isn't some sort of trap. It's a way for two mutually independent spirits to respect each other and hopefully grow together.

Getting an astrology reading is the best way to predict zodiac compatibility.

The Sagittarius Parent

As optimistic and energetic parents, Sagittarius moms and dads take a fair amount of pride in teaching their children to approach the world with the same enthusiasm and intellectual curiosity that they have. They often take a more hands-off approach to parenting; being opposed to people trying to tell them what to do makes them reluctant to push what they see as arbitrary rules on their children. But they need to remember that children usually need some sort of structure in order to feel secure growing up.

The Sagittarius Mother

Positive qualities of a Sagittarius mother are creativity, encouragement, and communication. Challenges for the Sagittarius mother are lack of structure, forgetfulness, and impracticality. A Sagittarius mom likes being her kid's best friend and joining in on fun times. She fully supports her child in all their creative endeavors and gives them lots of room to explore. However, she runs the risk of treating her child as a 'little adult' and not remembering that they sometimes need more direct guidance as opposed to learning on their own.

The Sagittarius Father

Positive qualities of the Sagittarius father include flexibility, out of the box thinking, and acceptance of individuality. Challenges for the Sagittarius father are lack of orderliness, permissiveness, and inability to manage priorities. He is very resistant to imposing rules on his children just because he's the dad and would much rather they understand the reasoning behind things than follow blindly. He needs to remember that sometimes children don't do well with logic as a first attempt. Explanations are a wonderful and commendable thing, but especially when they are little, simple clear rules are just fine too.

"Sagittarius won't mind getting in trouble if it's worth the ride." #SagittariusQuotes

Sagittarius Career

Sagittarius does well with jobs allowing them to be inventive or set their own structure. They like positions that expose them to the cutting edge of technology or are at the forefront of new discovery. They don't need to be in charge as much as they need a measure of freedom to do things their own way. Freelance work suits them well. Creative fields also suit their temperaments, if they can muster up enough discipline to keep on task. Sagittarius also enjoys it when their job gives them an opportunity to travel. An on-the-go lifestyle suits them extremely well, especially if there is not much repetitiveness or lack of mental stimulation.

Great teachers are often born with the Sun in Sagittarius. They're the inspiring professors of philosophy, political science, or theology who encourage students to ask questions and question everything. They help students develop their latent talents and expand their critical thinking and creativity. With an unquenchable curiosity and love of learning, a Sagittarius is apt to pursue advanced degrees and return later in life for more. They make great librarians, at home in the stacks of world civilizations, geography, and philosophy.

Sagittarius can sometimes find a home as a member of the clergy. Those with a disposition towards religion enjoy taking on the philosophical aspects of their faith and they especially love passing on what they've learned through sermons. Sagittariuses usually make quite dynamic and inspiring religious figures, helping others find a deeper level of faith.

Sagittarius and Money

Sagittarius would like to think they are above such mundane considerations as money, though the world is happy to prove otherwise. Budgeting feels restrictive to their desire for freedom, and Jupiter bestows a tendency to try to push their luck. They really, really need to remember that properly managing money can afford them a certain measure of freedom and find a trusted friend to teach them how to get their finances in order.

Sagittarius also doesn't have the street-smarts or financial savvy of some of the other zodiac signs, and their good nature can lead them to cheerfully share and lose control of what could be considered their own intellectual property which has value.

Sagittarius likes items with a certain amount of individuality to them. They would rather have something old and unique than something everyone else has. Their household décor is usually cheerfully mismatched, and their fashion sense tends towards the quirky. They like giving gifts that make others smile or laugh and like to bring back mementos of their travels to friends and family.

Sagittarius Intuition

Sagittarius have an innate sense of intuition that is often augmented by their experiences getting to know different people. As a trusting and easy-going sign, they are typically quite good observers of human nature and often can predict how a person will act based on what they observe.

Sagittarius Health and Wellness

Sagittarius is associated with the liver, hips, and thighs, and health concerns often manifest there first. Hip pain and leg cramps are common Sagittarius complaints, as are high cholesterol and liver disease.

Because they are often on the go, burn out can be an issue; Sagittarius greatly benefits from a little low-key time. Sitting outside and stargazing with a friend can help them clear their heads as well as inspire soul-enriching conversation. Meeting up with friends at a coffee house can also restore a Sagittarius' depleted batteries. When they are feeling livelier, indulging their inner child is always a good way to going, perhaps by playing some video games, especially ones involving puzzles.

On weekends, Sagittarius likes to get out there and do things. Day tripping to a nearby city is a favorite Sagittarius activity. They also enjoy conventions centered around their hobbies, loving to discuss the nuances with other people as passionate about them as they are. Though naturally strong and athletic, Sagittarius isn't one for physical activity that feels repetitive or holds no other value than being 'good for you'. They do love dancing, rock climbing, and activities that have a thrill-seeking aspect to them, and need to honor their bodies, taking care not to push past their physical limits.

Sagittarius Chakra

Sagittarius resonates best to the sacral chakra, located just below the belly button. An open Sacral Chakra can inspire creative expression and confidence in your sexuality, while a blocked Sacral Chakra can lead to a loss of imagination and fearfulness.

Sagittarius Purpose, Inspiration, and Mantra

As a Mutable Fire sign, Sagittarius burns brightly in the face of change. This is why a Sagittarius' purpose in life is to ignite the fires of creative self-expression in others that they meet. Sagittarius wants to be the catalyst for ideas that change the way people think. Inspiration comes by being receptive to change.

Because the flip side of Sagittarius' nature is a tendency to abandon a situation prematurely, a mantra such as "I am open to receiving wisdom that can only be found in steadiness" would be a positive reminder to slow down and establish a foundation for their dreams.

Sagittarius in Your Chart

Moon in Sagittarius

Your Moon Sign describes your emotional energies, instinctual reactions, and what you need to feel emotionally complete. Since Sagittarius' ruling planet is Jupiter it can cause a lot of contradictions between the way you act and the way you truly feel. If your Moon is in Sagittarius, you may find that you often rely on humor to avoid dealing with sensitive topics. The business of emotions is an overwhelming one for you. You need to watch for tendencies to sabotage your progress by running away when things are just beginning to establish roots. Take heart, you still have the luck of this sign and the ability to land on your feet. Be humble enough to learn from your mistakes and you will find an amazing resource of wisdom to inspire you.

Rising in Sagittarius

Your Rising Sign, or Ascendant, describes how you appear to others, as well as how you go about getting what you want. If you're a Sagittarius Rising, you may appear to the world as terrifically funny, impulsive, and capricious. The steadier signs of the zodiac might have a hard time taking you seriously, expecting you will breeze through a situation and give little attention to the details they so love. But you will find that others are inspired by your humor and your brazenness. You may even have a few of those who raise an eyebrow at your antics come to you for advice.

Venus in Sagittarius

The position of Venus in your astrological chart describes how you relate to others romantically. The appeal of Venus in Sagittarius men and women is the energy you put into a love affair. You are often given to memorable, over the top gestures and manage to pull them off with style. Passion is second nature to you, and you are extremely comfortable with your sexuality. You have very high standards for potential lovers. But you are never jealous and celebrate your partner's growth, even in areas that don't involve you at all.
