Sagittarius November 22 - December 21

Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the zodiac and its sign is the archer. Sagittariuses are lucky by nature, so they usually display a cheerful and optimistic disposition. Their inherent curiosity keeps them more interested in what will happen tomorrow rather than focuses on the mistakes of today. A state of constant change is a delight for them. Sagitarriuses are extremely independent, truly free spirits and yet, they are the nicest of all the zodiac signs. Sagitarriuses are kind, openhearted souls who do not expect anything in return when helping a friend. There are no hidden secrets to a Sagittarius - what you see is what you get. Creative, clever, straightforward, congenial - all these traits describe Sagittarius. People born under the zodiac sign of Sagittarius are very frank and innocent, almost like a child. They try their best to compliment you but are usually at a loss of words. They try to cheer you up, but often end up saying the wrong things. However, they do not do this deliberately and are often considered insensitive for this. Infact, they have earnest and sincere feelings for you. Sagittarians like to keep themselves busy instead of sitting idle. They love attention and are quite religious.


Sagittariuses are usually up for any adventure and love traveling to exotic destinations. That is because they are so curious about the world around them. Like Gemini's, they want to know about everything, but whereas a Gemini might learn a little about something and drop it, the Sagittarius can remain interested until the end. A Sagittarius's restlessness and distain for the mundane however, may be damaging to relationships.

In addition to being curious, Sagittariuses are also the great philosophers of the zodiac. Broad-minded and inquisitive, part of Sagittarius's inquisitiveness includes pondering the great questions of all time such as the meaning of life and religious issues. Their clear thinking means they have no problem seeing the "big picture."

Your Sun Zodiac sign may not best describe your sagittarius characteristics and general qualities which you bring to life. For many people, their Ascendant or its planetary ruler is the more obvious characteristic, or sometimes the Moon sign. Your Sun sign, rather, says more about the direction you should be moving in, so as to make the contribution to humanity you were born to make, and thus achieve a degree of personal fulfilment.

Sagittarius characteristics are witness to the importance of deriving meaning from experience. From experience, that is, not from books, though reading the thoughts and searches for meaning of others can help in the quest. Consider the symbol or glyph for Sagittarius - a centaur. The rear half is that of a horse and the front half that of a human. The horse symbolises animal instinct - it isn't the rear half for nothing! The human symbolises the search for that which lies beyond animal instinct. The two are always together - meaning, philosophy, religion, are divorced from instinct at their peril. Then you get the philosophers and preachers who exhibit great powers of mind but cannot touch the heart.

Sagittarius follows Scorpio in the zodiac, and if there are significant planets in Scorpio in your chart, or if Scorpio is your Rising sign, or if Pluto (the co-ruler of Scorpio) is strongly placed, then you will know all about the necessity to live fully at the level of experience.

A Great Friend

Sagittariuses are very social people. They give off a charm that draws people to them. The friendliest of all signs, Sagittariuses are kind to all and always doing favors for which they expect nothing in return. They are not jealous or possessive because they would not want anyone else to be jealous or possessive of them. They also do not tell you how to live your life or what you should do - they do not stick their nose in your business, only help when it is needed.

Sagittariuses make great entertainers because of their creativeness and outgoing personalities. They have a great sense of humor and, like their opposite sign, Gemini, are great conversationalists and magnificent storytellers.

LIKES                                                   DISLIKES

  • Travelling                                           Off the wall theories
  • getting to the heart of the matter                      Being tied down domestically
  • Freedom                                         Being constrained
  • Laws and meanings                        cooling your heels
  • the general 'feel' of things                    bothered with details


Sagittariuses can often be seen as too talkative and pushy because of their extroverted ways. Sometimes their frankness is seen as being too blunt or impatient. Because of their desire for change, Sagittariuses may have a hard time committing to a relationship for very long. A Sagittarius's carefree nature may also lead them to be careless.
