What Dates Is Sagittarius?

If your birthday falls between 23 November – 21 December, your Zodiac sign is Sagittarius.


What Type of Person is a Sagittarius?

Spotting a typical Sagittarius isn’t too difficult at all – that guy at the party who enthrals everyone with wild stories of his trek to the Amazon before telling the host her wine isn’t up to scratch then knocking the buffet table over? Chances are he’s a Sagittarius.

The woman who’s been out running, checked out the local beach, logged onto her online university course, and explained Existentialism to her kids BEFORE breakfast – she’s probably a Sagittarius too!

Once you know what you’re looking for, Sagittarius is hard to miss!

Loud, gregarious, outspoken, and prone to messiness – Sagittarius is a sign full of wild, unbridled energy that can be either captivating or frustrating to others. If there’s one thing Sagittarius just can’t do, it’s turn down the heat.

Always running on hot, they will be louder, funnier and more prone to putting their foot firmly in their own mouths than other sign.

Sagittarius is fascinated by their place and purpose in the Universe.

Their unending thirst for knowledge about spirituality and philosophy means they are often a fountain of knowledge about such subjects and they want, no they NEED, to share that knowledge with you at every opportunity. Sagittarius is the consummate teacher, but take everything they teach you with a pinch of salt.

Sagittarius has a massive drive to explain everything, but they are prone to exaggeration and embellishment. This isn’t because they’re trying to deceive you though. Rather, they use more than a little poetic license just to get their point across.

‘Do as I say, not as I do’ is a saying that sums up the typical Sagittarius. Whilst they know what the right thing is to do, they don’t always do it. They’ll tell you all about how to live your life whilst blatantly breaking their own rules.

Sagittarius loves adventure and they are usually looking for their next big thing, be that at work or in their personal life. They simply can’t bear to be bored and will go to great lengths to make sure their lives are filled with activity.

Mentally and physically athletic, they’re enough to leave most of us behind, breathlessly just trying to keep up.

But don’t think you have to try too hard. Sagittarius doesn’t really mind if you’re along for the ride or not, as long as they’re having fun.

Sagittarians always see the glass as half full, they’re blisteringly optimistic and naturally see the good in most situations.

They’ll take any negative circumstances and see them as a learning opportunity, then re-frame the situation into the context of the learning it provides.

This sunny outlook makes for some cheerful characters – but can also lead to them not really appreciating the emotional content in their lives.

This can make them seem superficial and even in denial of the true facts of life. Sagittarius just doesn’t take most things too seriously and they can seem flippant to those of us that do.

Sagittarians are masters of burning bridges and they do so quickly and easily. This can mean they appear to change careers and partners easily, leaving behind a mess that others have to sort out!

Mess is a word you’ll often hear associated with this sign – they are messy people by nature!

Knowledge and learning fire a Sagittarius up more than anything.

They are prone to becoming the perpetual student, especially in topics concerning spirituality or philosophy as they have a huge appetite for learning. In fact, If someone you know is a walking encyclopedia – they may well be a Sagittarius!


They may have a huge library of books on their favorite topics and they’ll love to tell you all about their theories on life, the Universe, and everything else for that matter.

Some of their views on these issues may be a little ‘out there’. They’re often fundamentalists and hold a preference for one particular way of life or religion over another.

Don’t get them going — because you’re going to end up in an argument!

Another telling trait is their ability to say the wrong thing at the wrong time. They tend to speak before really thinking things through. But if they offend you, they really didn’t mean to – just take that offended feeling and use it as a learning experience!

In fact, Sagittarius will be surprised to hear that they’ve hurt someone’s feelings.

They simply speak from the heart, with innocence and sometimes a little naivety.

I Seek, I See. Sagittarius is the gypsy, the student, the philosopher, and the Shaman.

The ninth sign of the zodiac boasts an ever-expanding mind; Sagittarius is always on a spiritual and/or emotional quest that often includes physical travel and adventure.

In short, Sagittarius is the eternal student.

And with such expansion comes a lighthearted optimism of which every other sign in the zodiac could benefit from.

Sagittarius stresses the need to live, to laugh, to have fun, and to learn because, ultimately, nothing matters.

This laissez-faire attitude however, may have consequences for Sagittarius if he/she doesn’t pay attention.

It is important for this sign, then, to learn moderation, emotional honesty, and how to keep an open mind — not everyone lives by Sagittarius’ rules.

Who is Sagittarius Compatible With?

Sagittarius is a fire sign so they burn hot and simply exude energy.

They love adventure, travel, sports, and anything that stimulates them and thrills their buoyant spirit.

They love to be around other people who are high on energy, optimistic, and exciting.

The fire signs: Aries, Leo and other Sagittarians make great romantic partners or friends for Sagittarius.

They need almost constant stimulation and someone who is loud and outgoing sparks their interest and feeds their internal fire.

They also love to be around air signs, such as Libra, Aquarius and Gemini. If you mix air with fire, the fire burns stronger and this is what thrills Sagittarius about such people.

One thing that turns Sagittarius off instantly is being restricted or constrained in some way.

Tell a Sagittarius they can’t do something, can’t eat this, can’t drink that, can’t go here, or talk to this person or other and they’ll tell you they’re going to do it anyway.

They’ll also probably add that there’s nothing you can do about it. To be honest, there is very little you can do about it – Sagittarius needs to be free. They can’t be tied down and they don’t like to feel controlled.

If you love to laugh, Sagittarius has got humor in abundance.

Give them center stage, sit back and let them entertain you, but don’t expect them to take anything too seriously.

Life can be one long party with a Sagittarius partner, but watch out for their habit of overindulgence! Sagittarius loves to eat nice things, drink nice wines and sample all that life has to offer – just bear in mind that they can be prone to overdoing it!

If you like a quiet life, Sagittarius probably isn’t for you! If you’re going to be close to a Sagittarius, be prepared to travel at the drop of a hat.

In fact keep your suitcase packed under the bed and your passport ready. Chances are Sagittarius will wake up one morning and decide it’s time you went on your next adventure.

And don’t expect to blend in with the crowd either. Sagittarius loves to be center of attention and they won’t hesitate to shock people just to enjoy the effect! If you’re easily embarrassed, this could lead to some truly cringe-worthy situations!

What is the Personality of a Sagittarius Female?

The Sagittarius female is a a super generous mom energy, but don’t expect her to be at the beck and call of your family alone. Sagittarius mom will involve your whole neighbourhood in family activities.

The more the merrier pretty much sums her up. With her interest in spirituality, expect to celebrate festivals of more than one culture – in fact, expect to celebrate them all.

A good party is what everyone needs, after all. According to the Sagittarian woman, the best parties have the most guests, the most food and, of course, drinks flowing on tap!

The Sagittarian woman will cook a huge spread that incorporates food from every corner of the globe and will be an entertaining, if somewhat excitable, host. But don’t tell her to tone it down. She really doesn’t know how to, and she won’t thank you for pulling her up on it. In fact, both Sagittarian men and women can have hot tempers that flare up without warning.

Sagittarians of both sexes thrive in high powered and high pressured jobs – they make good judges or lawyers.

They also have a talent for sales. With their love of travel and adventure, a career as a travelling salesperson may well seem very attractive to them.

The Sagittarian woman in a relationship is honest and trustworthy.

She wants a partner who is her equal, both mentally and physically. If you want to impress a Sagittarian female, don’t buy her flowers.

Instead, explain the mysteries of life and love to her. Knowledge is her thing. If you can teach her about something that ignites her flames, she’ll fall for you.

But don’t expect her to drop everything and run into your arms immediately. She values love that blossoms from friendship and, to be honest, her life is already pretty full as it is!

Take a Sagittarian woman on a date to somewhere that sparks her deep interest in spirituality and travel.

Take her to the ocean on the night of the full moon, light her a fire and cook her an exotic meal. Sagitarrian woman loves good food, loves good company, and loves to talk. She’s a whirlwind of energy and she needs you to meet her on every level.

What is the Personality of a Sagittarius Male?

The Sagittarian male is less domestic than his female counterpart – though he’ll still throw the best parties in the neighbourhood. He’s a risk taker who thrives on excitement.

Sagittarius is half man, half horse, and he’s always ready to jump the fence and explore new pastures. In fact, exploring and adventure are what flick his switches to a firm ‘on’ position.

Commitment is not his best thing.

The Sagittarian male is addicted to learning. He might have a huge library, or spend a lot of time pursuing the knowledge that feeds his internal fires.

If you want to get in this man’s good books, ask him to explain his beliefs on the reason for life, or teach you about indigenous cultures in South America – chances are he’s investigated it!

His tales may seem almost too outrageous to be true but, if he’s using exaggeration and bending the truth, he’s only doing it to get his point across to you!

The Sagittarius man is a great dad who will take the kids hiking, teach them to swim, and explain – at every opportunity – the right way to live. But don’t expect him to live by his own teachings – he’ll do what he wants when he wants to do it. And don’t try to tell him not to! The worst thing you can try to do with a Sagittarius man is to tell him he can’t do something.

He’s going to do it anyway, so save your breath. Listen to his stories, encourage his need for adventure and let him go – he wants you at his side and he wants you to enjoy life just as much as he does.

Who is Sagittarius Not Compatible With?

Sagittarius needs excitement and thrives on adventure. If you have a Sagittarian in your life, embrace their need for fun and don’t take life too seriously – they won’t!

On the whole, Sagittarius won’t be easy for a Taurean to get along with. In fact, many earth signs may be just too grounded and practical for the typical Sagittarius.

Scorpio may be another problem relationship with this lively sign. Water and fire rarely mix – they’re just too different. That’s not to say that it can’t happen. Depending on the placement of other planets in their birth chart, Sagittarius may well find an affinity with a water sign, it’s just not that common.

Signs that aren’t obviously compatible can get along, it just takes more work from both parties. For Sagittarius to enjoy spending time with you, you need to remember that they need a lot of activity – both physical and mental.

Don’t expect Sagittarius to spend many nights sitting in front of the TV  – boredom is one of their absolute pet hates!

If you’ll find it difficult to cope with Sagittarius putting their foot in their own mouth and saying the wrong thing to people, it’s best to stay away!

Similarly, Sagittarius is notoriously clumsy so if you value your vintage china collection, this may also be a sign for you to avoid!

Love is your spiritual ambition.

So is travelling through the universe in the pursuit of the unattainable. This is why it’s hard to be in relationship with you: because you always know what we don’t have.

While you are the eternal optimist, you also know that  divine love is a slippery slope, and that we are inadequate beings who cannot find ourselves worthy. Please abandon all comparisons.

The grass isn’t greener!

You often know what we ‘should’ be doing in love but the human rarely follows “shoulds”. We all are a hot mess… Love us anyways! Allow yourself to turn your love affair into  divine beauty even with the flaws.

Can you imagine being happy right now as is? Sounds poetic –it is. Just try it.
