Sagittarians (November 22 – December 21) have a positive outlook on life, are full of energy, versatility, adventure and eagerness to experience the new and different. They enjoy traveling and exploration; they are ambitious and optimistic, even in the face of disappointment. Ruled by Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion, these folks believe in growth and knowledge.
You do not have to have this as your Sun sign to carry the qualities of this energy. If you have an Ascendant in this sign, or heavy placements in your birth chart, this can show up in your life as well. If you have your North Node in this sign, try and bring the positive energy of this sign into your life. Having the South node here means that you need to lean away from the more negative qualities of this energy. Some of those qualities may show up in your personality.
The energy of Sagittarius
Sagittarius is the Archer, and every now and then, one of those arrows is totally off target. They are creatures of the extreme—either that arrow will hit perfectly, dead center, or it will rebound off the target directly back into the archer’s face.
In relationships, Sagittarians are reliable and will almost never betray their partners. They are generous and forgiving, although they are prone to temper and outbursts. This loyalty does not necessarily mean monogamy. This freedom loving sign does not commit easily.
Professionally, they make excellent teachers and philosophers. Before the invention of the automobile, they were said to be excellent with horses. This would make some sense, as the symbol for Sagittarius is a centaur, half man and half horse.
Sagittarius generally leans one of two ways. One, they are intellectual, thinking big, well read, opinionated, and willing to debate for hours on end—though often having a problem admitting when they’re wrong. Or two, they thrive on athletic competition. If you want to spot the Sagittarius in the backyard football game, look for the muddiest member of the winning team.
Sagittarius thinks big. He does’t have time or patience for details, and that’s where his weakness lies—because such things as social graces and tact can fall into those “little details” sections. Likewise, a job that demands attention to detail, like assembly line work, would leave an Archer breaking his bow in impatience and frustration.
The Archers are messy and scruffy. Ironing shirts and combing hair can easily become one of those little details, too. Don’t expect a neat and orderly house when there’s a Sagittarius living there.
They can be super honest, even to a fault. Their direct, straight talk manor can shock, offend or ruffle those who are more sensitive. They can speak without considering others feelings, because to them, the truth is the truth. This can lead them to be preachy. Some may lean into a little exaggeration. Jupiter expands everything its linked to, so some of these sharp shooters can create Jupiter size tails for the sake of the story.
Like the Centaur that the constellation Sagittarius represents, Archers love to travel. Even better is traveling in something as rough and ragged as they are, four wheel drive and covered in mud.
Archers do well in entertainment. They want to be liked, due to that deep insecurity, and they want an audience, because of their high level of pride.
