SAGITTARIUS Zodiac Sign: Dates, Meaning and Personal Traits
Sagittarius - the Archer

"Sagittarius energy is here to help us explore the universe, with one wild and limit-surpassing worldview after another, with its truly free spirit on your side, be prepared to expand your horizons in every way. Nothing is impossible for a Sagittarius, and there is no settling for a 'no' or a 'stop trying.'"

Sagittarius Horoscope: Dates and Meaning

If you were born between November 22 and December 21, you may know you’re a Sagittarius. You may even know that you’re such a Sagittarius. But when you dig deep, what even is a Sagittarius? To help answer that big question, we’ve put together our own zodiac sign cheat sheet to guide you through the basics. Because if anyone needs to know you, it’s you.

Your element:

Fire. Fire signs are about energy, action and motivation. They are often quick to get inspired and make highly effective leaders. Their love runs hot, so wallflowers and cold fishes need not apply (sorry, Pisces, didn’t mean to call you out).

Your quality:

Mutable. This means you tend to be flexible and use your passion and intellect to create connections between people and ideas that normally would not interact. You are the great cosmic networker.

Your ruling planet:

Jupiter. This planet is known as the “great benefic,” and he expands all he touches. Wherever Jupiter travels in your chart, he brings good luck.

Your symbol:

The centaur. Half horse, half archer, your cosmic avatar represents optimism and ambition on a global scale.

Your one-word mantra:

“Sugar.” Sagittarians are wise and honest, but they must pair their insights with tact to be truly effective in all of their relationships. (See all the other signs’ one-word mantras.)

Mixed Zodiac Signs

Now, If you were born on November 22nd or 23rd at a time when your sun is at the very end of Scorpio, you probably have a mixture of Scorpio and Sagittarius in your character. It’s a Scorpio inclined to be more of a Sagittarius. If your sun is at the very start (cusp) of Sagittarius, though, you’re definitely a Sagittarius – and a firm one at that.

If your sun is at the very end of Sagittarius, you may show personality traits of both Sagittarius and Capricorn, but If you were born at the very start of Capricorn, no matter how early in it, you’re most definitely a Capricorn. That’s because each sign is the most powerful at its beginning, its cusp.

Decans Make a Difference

The strongest is not equal to the most typical, though. A Zodiac sign is its most typical at the part of it (decan) corresponding to its quality: cardinal, fixed or mutable.

Each Zodiac sign belongs to one of the four elements fire, earth, air, and water. It’s also one of the three qualities. So, four elements and three qualities make twelve possible combinations – the twelve signs of the Zodiac.

Sagittarius is the mutable fire sign. That means its most typical part is the last one – the ten degrees making its third decan, 21°-30° Sagittarius. That corresponds approximately to the dates December 11-December 21. If your birth date is within this range, you’re likely to be a very typical Sagittarius.

If you were born in late November, the 22nd-30th, you’re still a Sagittarius, but with character traits comparable to those of Aries (the cardinal fire sign). If you were born on December 1-10. you have some tendencies similar to those of Leo (the fixed fire sign).

Sagittarius Horoscope: Personal Traits

Curious and energetic, Sagittarius are the travelers of the zodiac. Their open mind and philosophical view motivate them to wander around the world in search of the meaning of life. Sagittarius is an extrovert, always optimistic, full of enthusiasm, and ready for changes. This is a Sun sign of individuals who are often preoccupied with mental work, but when they find grounding, they show their ability to transform visions and thoughts into concrete actions and circumstances.

Just like Aries and Leo, Sagittarius is a Fire sign, in search of ways to creatively color the world in their colors. Clear about their intentions and honest by moral imperative, its representatives are often honest to the point of absurd, with no regard for tact and emotions of other people whatsoever. It is important for them to learn how to express their opinions in a tolerant and socially acceptable way.

SAGITTARIUS Zodiac Sign: Dates, Meaning and Personal Traits

Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the largest planet of the Solar system and the greatest beneficent giant in Astrology. Their enthusiasm has no boundaries, and these people possess a great sense of humor accompanied by intense curiosity. In need of absolute freedom, their adventurous spirit takes them from one end of the world to the other, exploring different cultures and philosophies.

Sagittarius – the Misunderstood Healer Guided by the centaurs and the story of Chiron, Sagittarius is the sign of teaching and healing, always ready to accommodate a friend and help others heal. This is a benefactor who is rarely fully accepted by common people, always in search for great distances where they might find a home. Pain is often hidden behind their smile, and they would gladly give everything they have to other people only to live their lives free from it. Blessed by many incredible things, there always seems to be something missing to make their life complete.

Sagittarius's secret traits:

Their unpretentiousness can sometimes mean they get away with not showering more often than people know. They are secretly good at saving money, even though they seem like free spirits without a care for material possessions. Actually, that might be the key to their frugality. And while they can seem a little air-headed and naive when it comes to practical matters, they’re usually whip-smart.

Strengths: Generous, idealistic, great sense of humor

Weaknesses: Promises more than can deliver, very impatient, will say anything no matter how undiplomatic

Sagittarius likes: Freedom, travel, philosophy, being outdoors

Sagittarius dislikes: Clingy people, being constrained, off-the-wall theories, details

Sagittarius as a friend:

Sagittarius are always down to do something cultural or intellectual, even if it is weird or avant-garde or requires you to travel to the other side of town. They always tell the truth—sometimes without a coat of sugar—but are incredibly open-minded and nonjudgmental. Also, they’ll help a friend burn down an ex’s house.

Sagittarius as a parent:

The centaur tends to place emphasis on education and probably enjoys the process of going back to school through their children. They tend not to be hierarchical and can relate to their kids on their own terms. Sagittarians also love sports (or activities that can function like sports, like debate or chess) and can be found at every game cheering them on. Their sense of humor is ruthless, and all of their kids will grow up with the skills to endure a good roast.

Sagittarius as a partner:

Sagittarians love to woo through shared humor, so they need someone who can keep up with them. They are witty and three steps ahead of most people. But while they are confident and charming, they are no egomaniacs, and they love seeing their partners thrive and succeed. Commitment can make them feel claustrophobic, but as long as they have plenty of space to be themselves, they can be incredibly loyal, passionate lovers.

Sagittarius Horoscope: What make the Archer different?

Sagittarians can be too aspirational. They want to believe so intensely that they can transcend the limitations of reality that it’s hard for them to accept the simple joys in life that lie before them. They’re so focused on achieving their goals that they don’t stop to appreciate the small victories along the way. Their high standards make them seem dismissive and arrogant.

Sagittarians want to know everything. They can become lost in their endless quest for knowledge. Their curiosity can sometimes lead them to question the foundations of their beliefs. Questioning things is their way of forming a coherent worldview. It’s also a way of finding new ways to experience the world.

They have an insatiable hunger for knowledge but are perpetually restless, so they have a hard time finishing books or even sticking with a singular discipline.

Sagittarians don’t believe in playing it safe. They are always looking for the next great breakthrough, and almost never look back. This tendency to abandon things before they even get started often leaves them feeling like they never quite get anything done. They can get so wrapped up in a million different projects that they fail to follow through on any of them.
