The Zodiac Sign Sagittarius Personality

Updated on August 15, 2013

November 23 – December 22

Sagittarius the Archer

The Astrological symbol for a person born with the Sun in the constellation Sagittarius is the Archer.  This could help understand the Sagittarian's need for adventure, travel, and to conquer new experiences.

The Basic Sagittarius Personality

The Archer is extroverted, adventurous and a risk taker. On the positive side, they are a lot of fun to be around. They are usually the first to try something new, and never pass up an opportunity to travel. They are the zodiac animal lovers. The ruling planet for the Archer is Jupiter, the planet of luck and good fortune. Therefore, Sagittarius usually has a pretty good life (unless, of course, other aspects get in the way). They are always lovable. They are free spirits. They are always optimistic, and love to learn. The downside, because the Archer loves risk taking it could cause injury, heartache, or gambling issues if not careful and responsible. However, with good fortune on their side, Sagittarius’ usually comes out on top.

Sagittarius in Love

Sagittarius is a hard one to get to commit. The Archer is usually too busy chasing his or her next adventure to settle down. However, once he or she finds the love and understanding person that fits into his or her life, they don’t let go. They are aware it is hard to handle to their kind, so they appreciate and love the one who does.

Sagittarius at Work

When it gets down to business the Archer is hard working and interested in making money. That is so he or she can have the funds for adventures in travel, shows, zoo keeping, and gambling at their leisure, as well as sharing the wealth. This is one of the most generous signs in the zodiac. Like most of the sun signs, as long as they are happy at work, they are happy period. Being content at work means more fun after work. It’s a win, win situation.

Sagittarius in the Sky

Glancing at the sky at night may show you the constellations of Sagittarius, placed between the constellations of Scorpius and Capricorn.  This, of course, depends on your location and the time of year.

Not all Sagittarians are the Same

Each of us is an individual. We have individual passions, tastes, pet peeves, emotions, and ways of handling stress. We each love differently and have different interests. For all of you born under the sign of Sagittarius, you have certain personality traits that are usually common. However, remembering the individuality I just explained, there may be other qualities that are more powerful than your sun sign.

Not only does each of us have a sun sign, but we also have a rising sign (ascendant – the sign on the eastern horizon of the earth at the moment you were born. We each have a moon sign as well. In addition, there are powerful outer and inner planets that make up or natal chart (map of the sky at your birth). There are twelve houses that represent a different part of our lives. There are 8 planets (9 if you count Pluto) and their movement to take into consideration, and there are aspects between these planets, in these houses that make up your personality.

In order for you to really discover the details of your personality, priorities, love habits, emotions, and relationships, you need to know the exact date, time and place of your birth to create a natal chart.

      This fits me better than your Sagittarius Woman post. Maybe I'm just not the typical girly type.

      Loved the hub. I am a sag also. Think that is why I love horses. have loved them forever. I had a horse, whose name was Champ. He was with me for so long. I had a seizure once, when I was riding. Of course I fell off. The stables called 911, and since they were only a few miles from the barn the paramedics were there in a few minutes. What was strange though, is that during the seizure, my horse stood over me. He flattened his ears. That is a threat from a horse. My seizures take a about 5 minutes. The EMT's didn't know what to do. After my seizure stopped, Champ sniffed me then walked away. Then the EMTs could help me. Hope that wasn't to strange. But I am a Sag who loves a horse.

      Thank you for commenting, yoginijoy! I'm glad you enjoyed the hub. The 9th house simply means that your sign is the 9th sign in the zodiac. It starts with Aries as the 1st and ends with Pisces as the 12th.

      Totally on the money! This sounds like me through and through! I don't understand the house part though--What does the 9 mean for a Sag? Voting up and interesting.
