Sagittarius Zodiac Sign Explained

Horoscope for Sagittarius

If you were born between November 22nd and December 21st, you are a Sagittarius. If you were born within three days of a sign change you may belong to a cusp of two zodiac signs (Scorpio – Sagittarius or Sagittarius – Capricorn Cusp).

This is the third sign of autumn and a Fire sign just like Aries and Leo. Governed by Jupiter, the Sagittarius zodiac sign receives the influence of excess, ambition and fulfilment from this planet. It is a mutable or double sign, represented by a centaur holding a bow with an arrow pointing up towards the sky.

The Sagittarius zodiac sign is represented by the myth of Chiron. This centaur once taught medicine and the arts. He was also immortal and endowed with great wisdom. According to mythology, Hercules wounded the centaur with an arrow. It was an immortal wound, just like Chiron, son of Cronus. The pain of this wound prompted him to ask Zeus to let him die. Zeus, who accepted his request, turned him into a constellation.

Sagittarius Astrology: Characteristics

Sagittarius is a sign that represents an evolution in the higher sphere. These concerns, among others, spiritual and intellectual growth, and a superior mind. They are great thinkers, skilled experts in philosophy, religion, theology or esotericism.

On the one hand, they embody human beings, which they consider to be an animal more evolved than others. And on the other hand, they embody the animal in its most primitive representation. This duality is seen through the mythological animal that represents it: the centaur, half-man, half-horse.

For a Sagittarius, the half-man part might be dominant. In this case, they will have a rather reconciliatory character and will seek to bring people together rather than divide them. They will set noble goals for themselves and make sure to better themselves. When the half-horse part is dominant, the Sagittarius will be carried away in actions and material desires that are purely primitive: party, sex, etc. Du to the excesses of Jupiter’s influence, they tend to live beyond their means.

Fortunately, Sagittarius natives will always find the means – sooner or later – to stand between the two and find the right balance. Under the influence of Jupiter, the planet of expansion and evolution, Sagittarius are lucky people. They also constantly need space to evolve, like a stallion that needs to travel the world free.

Royal blue and violet are the colors that best fit Sagittarius zodiac sign. If it was a body part, it would be the thighs, the buttocks, and also the liver. Sagittarius symbol is Archer. Taylor Swift, Brad Pitt and Scarlet Johansson are some famous celebrities under the sign of Sagittarius.

Sagittarius Zodiac Sign: Friends and Family

Sagittarius is someone well appreciated. In friendship, their vitality, good humor and enthusiasm do not go unnoticed. They can make friends from all walks of life. However, they are very attached to their independence and freedom, so Sagittarius prefer to avoid any hard commitment. They do not hesitate to put some distance when things become too sentimental for their own tastes.

Apart from their particular attachment to freedom, Sagittarius are very sociable people, provided they are motivated and have something to gain from it. Accordingly, their main centers of interest are adventure, travel, big projects, etc. Their relationships are more or less superficial, for they avoid any kind of ties that could limit their thirst for freedom.

The best friends of Sagittarius are Libra and Aquarius. Libra is a sign that also craves discoveries and great projects. As for Aquarius, they can adapt to any situation. They are in perfect harmony with Sagittarius, and they surely won’t run out of topics to discuss.

Sagittarius also bring enthusiasm and good humor to their family. They like to move and are full of energy. As a brother or sister, a Sagittarius often solicits their loved ones to have fun, laugh and fool around. Sagittarius are very attached to their family, brothers and sisters. Even when everybody has flown from the family nest, they still want to maintain the relationship they had as children.

Sagittarius is among those who think that it is never the right time to start a family. They often marry very late and as a parent, they are often afraid of their responsibilities. When they overcome this innate fear, however, they are affectionate and not really authoritarian parents.

They try to pass on to their children their love of freedom and openness.  It is not surprising that in the house of Sagittarius parents there are always many people.

Sagittarius with Other Signs

Zodiac signs compatibility


Sagittarius and Aries

Both Fire signs, Sagittarius and Aries, however, are not as compatible. This union will breed a more or less superficial relationship, without any real commitment from either sign. A Sagittarius might be patient, but the tendency of Aries to test the boundaries of someone else’s patience will end up getting on Sagittarius’s nerves. They have, however, some common points to exploit: the thirst for adventure and escape through numerous trips and projects.

Sagittarius and Taurus

Between Sagittarius and Taurus nothing goes right. Sagittarius will find the Taurus quite boring, for the latter will certainly not follow them in their adventures. The Taurus, very attached to the material side of things, will try to keep their feet on the ground. The Sagittarius, in return, will be willing to bet what they own because in their mind there is no way they might not win. It will be a very difficult relationship for these two signs. If there is love at first sight and the two get together, their relationship will last until the next time Sagittarius decides to change on a whim.

Gemini and Sagittarius

Gemini, Air sign, and Sagittarius, Fire sign, here is a combination that could work very well. Gemini is a dreamer and hates immobility. They dream about discovering the world, just like Sagittarius. The latter will then be able to make Gemini’s dreams come true on many levels of life and vice versa. They are in perfect harmony and their relationship is built to last.

Sagittarius and Cancer

The relationship that a Sagittarius and a Cancer can have could work very well. Cancer is always looking for a new journey and new crossroads to experience, and this is what will draw Sagittarius to them. The problem is that there most likely won’t be any real passion between the two. The relationship may work at the beginning, but over time, the void they will try to fill will only get wider..

Sagittarius and Leo

Sagittarius and Leo are two Fire signs that one might think incompatible (especially with the character of Leo). However, they will join forces and create a common goal for themselves.

They can build great things together and succeed in their couple life. It is an excellent combination in the zodiac.

Sagittarius and Virgo

The compatibility between Sagittarius and Virgo is rather good. Both have a fundamental respect for the other’s freedom. It will mostly be a relationship of compromise and understanding. The harmony within the Sagittarius / Virgo duo will be constant and permanent. Neither sign likes conflicts, let alone provoke them. These two signs of the zodiac get along quite well.

Sagittarius and Libra

Between Sagittarius and Libra, it is more a relationship based on the intellectual than the physical. They will like to work together to achieve their goals and fulfill their ambitions. Between them, friendship is stronger than love. Both will cruelly lack passion and sensuality. If they manage to spice up their love life a little, they will have a more than fulfilling relationship.

Sagittarius and Scorpio

The Scorpio with his problematic tendency to dominate the other will be satisfied with Sagittarius who won’t let themselves be so easily played. Sagittarius is the Scorpion’s ideal opponent (or partner). The thirst for freedom of a Sagittarius might not please a Scorpio, of a jealous and possessive nature. However, once they accept this characteristic of the Sagittarius, their relationship will stand the test of time.

Sagittarius and Sagittarius

Two generous beings, Sagittarius people understand one other. They are patient and if they want to build a lasting relationship, they might well succeed. With Jupiter dominant, excesses should not be ruled out, however, and they should take care to avoid excessive control. Sagittarius natives like to have permanent control over their partner. If they are both Sagittarius, the relationship could be problematic. However, if they really love each other, it can be overcome.

Between the two of them, they will go very far and build an excellent team. They will be able to make their relationship last and achieve their life goals in spite of various obstacles.

Sagittarius and Aquarius

The need for freedom of the Sagittarius will be very well sated with Aquarius, an Air sign. The latter being a true chameleon, able to adapt to any situation, Sagittarius will feel fulfilled. Their relationship will be notable for their sense of sharing. They are both very sociable and will most certainly be surrounded by many friends. It is a relationship that is made to last, for everyone knows how to accept the personality of the other without compromise.

Sagittarius and Pisces

Always deep and enigmatic, Pisces will also catch Sagittarius in their nets. Pisces natives will have no difficulty in seducing Sagittarius people with theirs dreams and the flood of feelings and sensitivity they offer. The uncertainty of the Pisces, however, will tend to frighten Sagittarius. If they succeed in overcoming this conflict, they can flourish together and make their relationship last.
