Sagittarius, symbolized by the Archer — half man, half horse — is arguably the most positive and optimistic sign of the zodiac. When you think of a Sag, the bow and arrow pointed towards the sky comes to mind, and that’s an adequate way of describing a Sagittarius: always reaching for greater heights, always seeking to expand their horizons and reach for beyond. Sagittarius is the philosopher, the forward-thinker, the idealist and the philosopher of the zodiac. Sagittarius will make you view life from a different vantage point, and this is one of their strongest traits.
Professionally, Sagittarius’ were born to teach and to learn. Even if they don’t pursue higher education, they will be self-taught. Their desire to absorb knowledge is contagious, which is why they often make excellent educators, gurus, mentors, advisors, and counselors. Sagittarius is multi-talented and easily inspired, and this can be a great combination but it can also lead to them starting many projects that they don’t always complete. Sag tends to have a short attention span, so they’re constantly in search of stimulation, adventure and action. They thrive when they can exert themselves in a physical way, making them great athletes and travelers.
As friends, Sagittarius is able to seek out what’s unique and interesting in anyone they meet. This makes them very popular and cultured, because they make friends with people from all sorts of backgrounds and cultures. Sagittarius has high ideals and will spend hours debating people and trying to get them to see things from their perspective. But Sag is definitely an open-minded sign, and they’ll listen to the various opinions while remaining true to their own. Sag is extraverted for the most part, and can have quite the wild social life. They can’t be tamed.
As lovers, Sag tends to press the pause button before letting their emotions be shown in an intimate relationship. Sag may feel more comfortable as friends or hook-up buddies at first, but this may be a self-protective way of not letting people see what makes them tick. Sag tends to keep things light-hearted for the longest amount of time possible. When they do fall in love, it’s as if they never saw it coming, and all of a sudden they’re head over heels in love. Sag has an aura about them that makes them seem non-attached, and this can cause their partner or love interests to worry about whether they’re in it for the long haul. The truth is that you never truly know. You have to wait and see. Either way, a relationship with a Sag is one that you remember.
