If you were born between November 22 and December 21, you may know you’re a Sagittarius. You may even know that you’are such a Sagittarius. But when you dig deep, what even is a Sagittarius?
Sagittarians are optimistic, lovers of freedom, hilarious, fair-minded, honest and intellectual. They are spontaneous and fun, usually with a lot of friends, and are perhaps the best conversationalists in the zodiac. They tend to inspire the people around them to live their best lives, like a cross between Oprah and Santa Claus. Did we mention they are very, very funny?
Best careers: Because they tend to be so intellectual, talkative, and encouraging, Sagittariansmake excellent teachers or professors, broadcast journalists, coaches, artists, writers, or hosts.
As a friend, Sagittarians are always down to do something cultural or intellectual, even if it is weird or avant-garde or requires you to travel to the other side of town. They always tell the truth—sometimes without a coat of sugar—but are incredibly open-minded and nonjudgmental. Also, they’ll help a friend burn down an ex’s house.
As a parent, the centaur tends to place emphasis on education and probably enjoys the process of going back to school through their children. They tend not to be hierarchical and can relate to their kids on their own terms. Sagittarians also love sports (or activities that can function like sports, like debate or chess) and can be found at every game cheering them on. Their sense of humor is ruthless, and all of their kids will grow up with the skills to endure a good roast. Secret traits – They are secretly good at saving money, even though they seem like free spirits without a care for material possessions. Actually, that might be the key to their frugality. And while they can seem a little air-headed and naive when it comes to practical matters, they’re truly “street-smart”.
Independent and strong-willed, Sagittarius personalities are all about going off the beaten path. Sagittarius isn’t afraid to step away from the pack, and is a natural born leader who goes after what he or she wants, regardless of what other people think. Sagittarius is a born adventurer, and loves solo travel and exploration. Sagittarius also loves exploring the inner workings of their minds, and love stretching their horizons through a good book or movie.
Sagittarius is open-hearted, generous, and big-spirited, but Sagittarius is always truthful. Because of this, they may hurt others’ feelings, or may be called out for not having tact or empathy. The latter is not true. With their keen imagination, Sagittarius is adept at putting themselves in another person’s shoes—that’s why so many Sagittarius are successful actors—but they do not feel the need to beat around the bush or lie. You can trust a Sagittarius to tell you what they really think. You can also trust a Sagittarius, period. Unlike other signs, they won’t spill any secrets.
In relationships, Sags will be honest and true to themselves, and that may mean that they will move on from a relationship. If it’s not working, it’s not working, and a Sagittarius won’t stay for the sake of another person’s feelings. A Sagittarius will always be honest and in check with their emotions, and a Sagittarius will not engage in emotional blackmail.
Sagittarius is a steadfast friend and a creative thinker; a great person to have on a work team, as they have infectious energy and enthusiasm. They aren’t looking for constant feedback, and can take a project and run with it. A Sag can also be an adept entrepreneur or CEO. A Sagittarius is smart, capable, and a true trailblazer.
Sagittarius Greatest Gifts
Sagittarius is adept at blazing their own paths, and can always go it alone. Sagittarius doesn’t need a roadmap, and can easily conceptualize ideas and opportunities that others may not easily “see.” Sagittarius doesn’t need permission or approval, and has a strong sense of self that allows them to always feel sure-footed, even where others may be unsure or insecure.
Sagittarius Greatest Challenges
Sagittarius is so good at doing things independently, but sometimes it can be faster, smarter, and more fun to do things as part of a group.
Sagittarius Secret Weapon
Their independence. Sags don’t need other people’s approval, opinions, or advice. A Sag loves hanging out with herself, and feels like doing things solo can only help her connect more to her deepest self. Sagittarius uses solo time as a much-needed reboot. While an hour stuck in traffic during a car commute could be untenable to anyone else, to a Sag it’s a form of self care.
