People born under the sign of Sagittarius, the Archer, are inquisitive by nature.  That’s inquisitive with a capital ‘I.’ They seek answers to the great mysteries of life and are fiercely independent.  Sagittarians are born students and wanderers who fascinate us with their natural optimism and philosophical nature.  No party or gathering is complete without them because they charge the atmosphere with their exuberance.   Stand back and watch a Sagittarius shoot a metaphorical arrow and no matter how difficult the terrain, they will follow its path to wherever it falls.  

The Zodiac’s ninth house is home to Sagittarius. This is the place that guides our social lives, our education, as well as our penchants for philosophy and travel.  Sagittarians thrive on change, embracing new experiences with boundless enthusiasm.  They are students of life who become restless if they stay in one place, or situation too long,  They are constantly looking down the road for the next adventure. For them, experience is not only the best teacher, it’s their life’s blood as well.  

The Archer likes to avoid commitment – even with the small

things in life like choosing a bath mat or furniture.  Commitment, however mundane, equals strings for a Sagittarius and being tied to one place or situation hinders the footloose lifestyle they prefer.  Are they capable of lasting relationships?  You bet they are. However, they are a fire sign in the mutable modality (adaptive, changeable) and other fire signs who are equally adventurous are their best partners – Gemini, Libra and Aquarius.  Think, Doctor Who traveling through the universe with his best companion ever.  If this image makes you envious then you are the perfect mate for Sagittarius.

The workaday Sag is a born achiever.  Remember, life is an adventure for them and they take any opportunity to explore it with skill and optimism.  They make excellent lawyers, communications specialists, marketing consultants, sales professionals and photographers (no surprise – they love to capture a moment for later reflection). They excel at presentations like none other.  They are not so great at teaching because they expect the same level of excitement, adaptability and curiosity from their students as they, themselves experience when embracing a new subject.  They are honest to the point of bluntness and can be impatient with those who don’t catch on quickly.  Rule of thumb: If you can’t think on your feet, or adapt quickly to a game change, don’t work closely with a Sagittarius.  If however, if you are innovative, far-sighted and love the excitement of the moment, sit yourself down with your new best friend, lover, or co-worker.  If you're lucky, all of the aforementioned.

The universe awaits for Sagittarius, with all its
'timey-whimey' adventures!
Sagittarians are deep thinking adventurers.  They are among the early adopters in our culture – not for the sake of newness itself, but because the new must be explored.  We need adventurers in our lives and in our society.  They show us possibilities and inspire us to dream.  Think of Sagittarius as you seek out new opportunities in your own life and embrace the change.
