Being a Sag myself, I of course chose to begin with my zodiac sign. Like most people, I do not place too much emphasis on horoscope readings and compatibility of zodiac signs mainly to save face. It is generally believed that astrology is a load of crack pot aimed at the more gullible members of society and those who still believe that Santa exists after age fifteen. But like everybody else, I am secretly fascinated by the spot on descriptions of personalities that fall under the twelve zodiac signs. So I may not agree with the predictions, but some traits the astrologers came up with are so eerily accurate that I can’t help but wonder how they deduced those traits just by studying the heavens and their relation to a person’s month of birth.
Some people confuse astrology with astronomy. Astronomy is the science that studies celestial phenomena physically. All objects in the sky are studied in terms of their constitution, position, history, etc. Astronomy, of course, is a science and no one disputes its validity. Astrology goes a step beyond astronomy by making correlations of celestial phenomena with events on earth, and these correlations are not of a nature that can be easily explained by traditional scientific concepts.
Without further ado, the Sagittarius:
The Sagittarius typecast is that they are often extroverted and crazy party goers. They like to have fun above everything else and are not very big on commitment. Not all Sagittarius are the same, though. Some Sags can be the opposite of what they are known for so, naturally, they can also be introverted and shy. That can make things a bit more complicated if you want a shot with a specific Sag and are trying to figure out how to act around them by consulting the stars. If people can only be defined by their zodiacs the world would be a better place. Heh. Of course we can always try to do something about it. The easiest explanation is the day or week the person is born. So let’s look at each of those.
A bit of info first, Sagittarius people are those born from November 22 to December 21. There is the thing called a cusp, though. This is the first and last few days of the zodiac that they share with the other 2 zodiacs before and after them. So in this case, Scorpio (before Sag) and Capricorn (after Sag). People born anytime during November 19 to 24 are a Scorpio – Sagittarius cusp so they characteristics of both signs and those born on December 19 to 25 are Sagittarius – Capricorn cusp. Moving on:
The first week (November 19-24) is the week of Revolution. This is sort of the turn around time. It is when things are developing into something else. Again, people born on these dates share some Scorpio and some Sagittarius characteristics. The strengths or most outstanding characteristics of people born on these dates are their loyalty (so yes, Sagittarius people can commit too!), gutsy (their love for taking risks) and the way they are usually ecstatic and full of energy. These are the more quiet type of Sagittarius.
The second week pertains to the week of Independence. These are people born on November 25 – December 2. They are the more responsible type of Sagittarius. Honor is a big thing for them and they are the type that tries everything to prove themselves. They take care of themselves and do not depend on anyone to look after them and although Sagittarius are usually seen as selfish, they can be intuitive too and sensitive to others feelings. They are very much capable of taking care of their loved ones.
Week three is the week of the Originator. These are the talented and creative type of Sagittarius. They can come off as unusual but that is the ingenious that is in them. They posses a passion for arts and every beautiful things around them and can come up with great ideas no matter if it’s for work or just something they want to do for fun. This week is from December 3 to 10.
The week of the Titan is the fourth week so think big! The most common characteristics of people born on December 11 to 18 is their confident nature. They know confidence can make them get better results in things they do. They have ambitions and they try to reach for it. At the same time they try not to forget people that have helped them along they way. They also have a big heart and try to help other people who are trying to reach their own goals.
The last week which is also a cusp is the cusp of Prophecy. From December 19 to 25 (I happen to fall here 😉 ) These people can be quiet like the Scorpio – Sag cusp but they are more of observers and psychics. They are very intuitive and try to understand things but people find it hard to do the same to them. They are inscrutable and are somewhat mysterious.
The Weak Points Of A Sagittarius
The Centaur. The mighty Archer. Two symbols that represent the Sagittarius zodiac. Both signifies strength, power and wisdom. This zodiac is suitable for alpha males; people who are born leaders or posses high ranking positions. Socially, the Sagittarius carries him/herself well. They are what you call the life of the party.
People like to be around them. Clever and witty, they also normally excel in their chosen field or at least perform very well at the things they do. The level of their confidence takes them a long way. They have varied interests that takes them around the world. On the front, a Sagittarius seem to be perfect. The ideal person everyone is looking for. But there are a few weak points that one needs to know before they decide if they want to be with an Archer.
It’s not always going to be parties and good times. There will be a few bumps in the road before one can finally say you think you may love happily ever after and whether they are big or small depends on the person who’s dealing with it.
The Sag is a traveler. He/she is active and has varied interests. This is considered a good attribute but in the long run may be a problem. The SAGITTARIUS TEND TO BE RESTLESS. They like going from one place to another because their feet just itch to go out and explore. It’s unlikely for them to stay put at one place for a long time. They don’t like staying home much because Sagittarius get bored easily. If they live in the city they will constantly go out to meet people to have fun with. In the outskirts they may just decide to go back packing one day and see how far up the trail on the hill goes. A person with a Sagittarius should not expect to have him stay indoors for too long. Go on vacation maybe twice a year or make sure regular night outs are on the calendar to keep them entertained.
A CAREFREE ATTITUDE can be cute but the Sag tends to overdo it. That characteristic can easily turn to being IRRESPONSIBLE AND RECKLESS. A developed Sagittarius knows when to take things seriously but the inexperienced ones just don’t know when to stop. Good thing they are mutable so they can be steered to the right direction. One must make sure they’re up to guiding a these devil-may-care bunch if they want to get to their destination.
One of the biggest Sagittarius trait that may cause them problems is their FLIRTATIOUS NATURE. They are very aggressive (whether male or female) in bars and would approach the first person that would catch their attention and they won’t stop there. A Sag is a visual person and their eyes will roam around. They don’t have a problem dating 2 (or more) people at the same time and that can get messy.
THE SAG LACKS COMMITMENT. A person with the Sag should make sure things are clear and in black and white. They are highly intellectual people but relationships and commitments are not their forte. However, when they do commit it leads to a relationship full of loyalty, passion, love and affection.
High Qualities of a Sagittarius
People born under the Sagittarius zodiac are seen as happy-go-lucky, nonchalant and, a lot of times (although they usually don’t mean to be), callous. But for every one of these adjectives that people throw at the Archer, there is a positive trait that weighs ten times more that can make the seemingly negative traits fade. Here are some of them:
1) Independent. Being independent can mean a lot of things and the Archer takes it all. Whether financially, intellectually or emotionally, a Sagittarius prides himself to be independent. They are very good at handling their finances so they always have something to take out of their pockets in case of emergencies. It may not be easy for them to pick a career that bring them success because a Sag needs something that doesn’t restrict him to a certain type of conduct but they do their best no matter what is thrown their way and at the same time they don’t stop looking for that job that would give them the fulfillment they need. Emotionally, they are usually in control. No, they’re not cold and calculating. As a matter of fact, the Sag can be the most affectionate sign there is if they want to be or if they think you deserve that affection. They are emotionally stable and do not resort to drama to get what they want. Sags love having fun too much to give in to drama. They’d rather take their time to think of a way to solve things in a quiet way. They try to solve their own problems too and try not to drag everyone in it.
2) Optimistic. This is a part of their happy-go-lucky character as well as their intellectual part. Whereas a pessimistic person will see so many road blocks, the Sag can think of a hundred and one ways of how and why things can work out. Unlike others who just say, things are going to be okay, the Archer actually thinks of ways to get to the goal.
3) Confident. Not the overly confident type, the Sag just have enough confidence that lets them slide through the day with ease. No matter what obstacle they face, they are confident they can get through it with a bit of logical thinking. Their confidence is also part of their charisma and appeal. They don’t believe you have to be gorgeous (although of course that helps, A LOT) to gain attention. You just have to think you’re gorgeous and that’s how Sags are. It may sound conceited as you read this but probably the thing that doesn’t make them so overbearing is the fact that they know how to use all their good qualities together.
4) Generous. The Archer is generous in more ways than one. They will offer support to friends and loved ones whether it be monetary or a sound advice. They will share their roof if they need to not in exchange of anything but just because they hate to see anyone they care for in a pickle.
Common Sagittarius Personalities that Get Misinterpreted
The Rule Breaker. The Sagittarius likes taking chances and pushing boundaries. They like to know their limitations so they can find out how far they can go. If you look at it in their way, pushing boundaries just means perseverance. A Sag would go a long way to make sure they finish something they started. They are not afraid to try unusual procedures if it would bring good results. This often leads to them being misinterpreted as rule breakers. They would try anything out if it means it’s something new and most especially, out of the usual. For them, if it’s fun and brings new experiences then it can’t be that bad. It just depends on who’s looking at it.
The Heart Breaker. A Sagittarius loves being around people but most of all they like getting to know people. They would figure you out like a puzzle to know what tickles you pink. Sags are somewhat people pleasers in that regard. They are very accommodating and they would give you what you want and need without realizing they are leading you on. They are also hopeless romantics. Forever out there looking for “the one”, they aren’t afraid of getting hurt or taking chances because deep inside, they know that “someone” is out there waiting for them and they won’t miss an opportunity if it means they will finally meet. If they feel like the person they are dating is not the one, they will be honest and say so so they can move on to find their soul mate. For them, the truth should be said even if it hurts. On another note, Sags are huge flirts too. Sometimes they don’t realize it but they are. They are very playful and sociable and they would have a conversation with anyone who is up to it.
The Know-It-All. The philosophical nature of Sags can also lead to them being misinterpreted. Sagittarius people are inquisitive and forever looking for answers. They don’t stop when you give them a good-enough answer. It has to be the absolute truth. Although they are fun-loving people they can rant too like when they don’t understand why people do things a certain way, for example. This is mostly why they are pegged as a bunch of know-it-all. They will talk about things that they don’t understand and suggest something that, for them, makes more sense.
The Sagittarius people have strong personalities so they can come off as extreme. The best thing to do is look inside them and know what their intentions are. Most of the time, they think and act in ways they think will benefit not just them but the people around them too.
So there you have it, a little more insight into the Sagittarius people. All of these in one person is a great deal to top so don’t be too quick to judge the Sag.
