Strengths & Weaknesses
Strengths – Sagittarius is an adventurer, both physically and mentally. People born in this Sun sign have a broad mind and they are able to change perspective with ease, until they find the right version of words spoken, events or reasons for anything they want to examine. Highly adjustable and with a deep understanding for different people, nations, countries, governments and in general – ways of life, they blend in perfectly with the natives, wherever they are. They need enough space, don’t want to be contained in their home, by their partner or in any other way. Movement will fill up their batteries, energize them and make them confident and strong. Independent, optimistic and sincere, this is a friend you want in your life, especially if you need someone to help you find hope or a purpose to anything that troubles you.
Weakness – The greatest weakness of Sagittarius is their inability to find focus. With such a broad vision, it is not easy to pay too much attention to details, be practical and narrow down their sentences to be understandable and unambiguous. As a consequence of their faith in the goodness of human kind, these individuals will often end up disappointed or challenged, and their faith has to be built up from a point of deep understanding, or they have a tendency to turn into inflexible, grumpy people who had high hopes, once.
Sagittarius in Relationships
A Sagittarius will be someone you want in your life at any given moment in case their fiery nature lets them rest and they build up patience and compassion for everyone around them. Depending on their upbringing, these individuals can be incredibly positive, literally bringing good to the world and lives of others, while passionately fighting for your shared beliefs. On the down side, they speak their mind often without too much consideration, and lack tact, tenderness and maturity. Their smile can keep you alive in a time of need, as much as it can annoy you at times of rest.
In romantic relationships, this is not a sign that brings promise of a lasting bond. Even though many Sagittarius representatives search for their soulmate, as if this one person is supposed to give meaning to their entire life, they will try out different relationships just to discover that practical love is not the same as their imaginary one. A bit naïve and giving, they will expect the best out of any contact, no matter their own emotions, circumstances or dedication. They need a partner who will fill their lives with adventure, or at least follow them in theirs, and there is probably nothing that can kill their spirit as much as a static routine, laundry done on weekends and reading newspaper each morning at the same time.
As parents, they will usually seem perfectly connected to their playful child. They will enjoy play, mostly because they don’t ever want to be grownups themselves, and be very flexible about activities of their children, their curfew and social life. The problem that might arise in lives of these parents hides in their unrealistic expectations, and their need to see the world through pink goggles. This can take away the stability of their entire family, make them distant and lost, or in the worst possible scenario – turn their children into “robots” who only want to fulfill their parent’s expectations.
As a child, Sagittarius is impossible not to love. Curious and wearing a smile, this is someone always prepared to learn, grow, and laugh in all of the inappropriate situations you can imagine. This little person will tell you all of the wrong things in the worst imaginable moments, but turn them into laughing, cute experiences for everyone in the room. They need a lot of space to build their personality, try out all sorts of things, and travel as much as they can. Once they find direction and their true calling, they will study hard, keep their focus, and make everyone around them less worried for their wellbeing and their childish character.
Love and Intimacy
This is a sign that comes right after Scorpio and seems to have all the experience you can imagine when it comes to sex. However, their intellectual nature and their brain often won’t shut down to make room for matters of the heart. This is the reason why many Sagittarius representatives have many insignificant relationships before they reach a point of actually falling in love with someone. A relationship with them is exciting and adventurous, always taking you into the unknown, but also unstable and filled with passionate outbursts that don’t allow fine intimacy. In order to build real closeness, they need someone to follow them in their chases, their convictions, and their beliefs, so they start discovering trust to finally turn down the fire and open up for their partner.
Once a Sagittarius feels where their direction should lead, they strive high and tend to achieve truly great things in their professional path. If they remain lost between activities they think they should like, or simply build an image of success, their lack of satisfaction will pull them until they leave everything behind and start over. This is not someone capable of sticking to a boring job, and it will be impossible to keep them in one place for too long, unless they have loads of new insights to discover and learn. In a team, this is someone who will give everything they’ve got for others to succeed, before they realize they were used, or simply not interested enough to reach for their own advancement.
Positive Sagittarius Traits
Generous as this is a sign of giving away, giving too much, and an open heart that can’t stop helping even when no one asked for help in the first place.
Optimistic for this is someone who will always stay aware that everything has a purpose, and see a tomorrow just around the corner.
Wise but only if they have learned a lot, for their experience is the school of life that nothing else can substitute, making them provoke their openness and widen their horizons day after day.
Negative Sagittarius Traits
Unrealistic as a sign that rules hope, faith and beliefs, this is not someone who will often see the world as it is, romanticizing it, unaware of the simplest basic truths such as wars, weaponry and thievery.
Inconsistent because their fiery mutable quality simply cannot rest, and makes it impossible for them to stay in one place for too long.
Tactless with a childish charm to it though. It is pointless to explain how a Sagittarius sometimes chooses their words, but it is obvious they didn’t measure them very carefully. Brutal honesty will make them seem even heroic, but they need to learn to speak about negative issues with care and sensibility for other people.
Understanding Your Sagittarius
To really understand your Sagittarius, you need to get the idea of superficiality out of your head. There is nothing superficial about this sign, for it is born out of Scorpio and represents what comes after an end of any kind, including death. This is a sign of blessings, religion and philosophy, that makes us question our purpose and our entire existence. However, it also represents a mental zone that has trouble connecting to the heart, and their fiery, open verbal approach, often hides their sensitivity. They need to be surrounded by people who are energetic and strict, but soft on the inside, for this is something they will relate to in the best possible way.
