An Overview of the Sagittarius Zodiac

DatesNovember 22 – December 21
ElementMutable Fire
Ruling HouseNinth
Ruling PlanetJupiter
SymbolThe Archer (or the Centaur)

Sagittarians value freedom above most else, always ready to accept and explore what Jupiter provides. This can be information, experiences, or people. Life is full of information that a Sag wants to know, but only when it’s helpful in their search for answering the real question: the meaning of life.

Though the Archer is identified as mutable, it doesn’t mean a follower. In this case, mutable represents independence or a lack of leadership. Sags go their own way in search for answers. They freely and undoubtedly move from one place to the next with zero qualms about what they’re leaving behind.

You can expect someone born under the Archer to be extroverted and dynamic. They are joyous people who love to explore, travel, and learn. Though impatience isn’t below them, especially when face-to-face with information they truly desire.

Characteristics of a Sagittarian

Sag Personality Traits

Sags are joyous people; they love looking at the bright side and benevolence of life and the world. It’s no surprise that their joy comes with enthusiasm towards almost everything they interact with: people, places, ideas, etc.

Those born under the Sagittarius Zodiac sign are natural explorers and wanderers. They can pick up and go anywhere at a moment’s notice and love the excitement adventure brings. Because it’s not adventure for the sake of adventure, it’s adventure for sake of learning. There’s always something new to understand about the world that leads them towards their goal of understanding the meaning of life.

The Archer is a mutable fire sign, but mutable equals independence. Sagittarians don’t follow and they don’t want followers. They go their own road with motivation and drive that stems from the possibility of understanding life, not from another person’s push.

Strengths for Sagittarians

Optimism rules for a Sagittarian, they always seem the bright possibility of the road ahead, even if it’s shrouded in darkness. They easily feel happy and enthusiastic which is almost contagious. Even though they don’t want followers, it’s hard for others not to when they see such joy in a single person. Sags won’t turn these people away though; they enjoy the company because they know they’ll move on to the next place soon enough.

With optimism comes confidence for those ruled by the Archer. They are loners who push themselves forward, confident with every step that they’re on the right path. Their attitude reflects how miniscule they are in the grand scheme of the universe. Everything works out exactly how it should.

A Sagittarian is least likely to be materialistic, valuing knowledge much more than physical things. They don’t want anything to hold them in place because they enjoy the freedom that comes with the one life we all get.

Weaknesses for the Sagittarius

Sagittarius is a Zodiac sign of passion and loyalty. When it comes to being challenged, Sags will offer their opinions strongly—sometimes too strongly. You may think a Sag is firm in some belief. But in reality, they are quick to change their minds once they receive new supporting information. This leads to a flip-flop nature that’s filled with conviction at every stage. It can be difficult to trust a Sag for this reason.

Commitment is not in the cards of Sagittarians. This applies to both relationships and plans. They quickly change their minds about someone or some event at the drop of a hat and aren’t afraid to leave people hanging in the wake of their decision. They live too much in the moment to follow something as set-in-stone as marriage or dinner plans.

Many Sags become disappointed in their own lives. They’ve built up such high expectations for reality that nothing can remotely live up to them. The deplore the limitations of life but don’t know how to move forward.

Compatibility for Sagittarius

Water Signs Are Completely Incompatible

Water and fire are opposites. Though every element has an opposite, there is nothing more harmful that snuffing out a fire with water. Sags don’t want to be emotionally weighed down by a water sign’s inward intellect. They much prefer wandering the earth in search of the truth, wherever it may be.

Fire, Air, and Earth Make Great Matches for a Sag

Fire and fire are always a great match, as their impulses and actions are always supported by one another. Not that the Sagittarius needs affirmation, but it certainly doesn’t help. Other fire signs also thrive on their own, so a relationship between fire and a Sagittarian only makes sense. They can go their own way and meet back up when it’s convenient with no hard feelings in between.

Air is complementary for the Archer, feeding its flames and encouraging exploration and growth. While air signs are not as outgoing or explorative, they are certainly along for the ride and out of the way for a Sag.

Earth is an interesting, yet positive, combination for Sagittarians. They bring stability and practicality which is usually what a Sagittarian needs in their search for the truth.

The Sagittarian Mantra

As Sags are seekers, their mantra can only be “I see”. They are always on a path of enlightenment and discovery, searching for truth and its support. As wanderers and adventurers, they literally do see the world and experience it to the fullest degree.
