Sagittarius Sagittarius's Curious Honest

Sagittarius (Nov 23rd-Dec 21st) is the ninth sign of the zodiac and its sign is the archer. Sagittarians are lucky by nature, so they usually display a cheerful and optimistic disposition. Their inherent curiosity keeps them more interested in what will happen tomorrow rather than focuses on the mistakes of today. A state of constant change is a delight for them. Sagittarians are extremely independent, truly free spirits and yet, they are the nicest of all the zodiac signs. Sagittarians are kind, openhearted souls who do not expect anything in return when helping a friend. There are no hidden secrets to a Sagittarius - what you see is what you get. Creative, clever, straightforward, congenial - all these traits describe Sagittarius.

Curious

Sagittarians are usually up for any adventure and love travelling to exotic destinations. That is because they are so curious about the world around them. Like Gemini's, they want to know about everything, but whereas a Gemini might learn a little about something and drop it, the Sagittarius can remain interested until the end. A Sagittarius's restlessness and disdain for the mundane however, may be damaging to relationships.

In addition to being curious, Sagittarians are also the great philosophers of the zodiac. Broad-minded and inquisitive, part of Sagittarius's inquisitiveness includes pondering the great questions of all time such as the meaning of life and religious issues. Their clear thinking means they have no problem seeing the "big picture."

A Great Friend

Sagittarians are very social people. They give off a charm that draws people to them. The friendliest of all signs, Sagittarians are kind to all and always doing favours for which they expect nothing in return. They are not jealous or possessive because they would not want anyone else to be jealous or possessive of them. They also do not tell you how to live your life or what you should do - they do not stick their nose in your business, only help when it is needed.

Sagittarians make great entertainers because of their creativeness and outgoing personalities. They have a great sense of humour and, like their opposite sign, Gemini, are great conversationalists and magnificent storytellers.

Weaknesses

Sagittarians can often be seen as too talkative and pushy because of their extrovert ways. Sometimes their frankness is seen as being too blunt or impatient. Because of their desire for change, Sagittarians may have a hard time committing to a relationship for very long. A Sagittarian's carefree nature may also lead them to be careless.

Parts of the Body Ruled By Sagittarius

The liver, hips, and thighs - Sagittarians have a sensitive liver and may be susceptible to alcohol abuse and hepatitis. However, their love of the outdoors helps them keep healthy.

Well, I think loads of these traits suit me down to the ground. However I can never speak my mind because I’m always trying to keep everyone happy! So it’s not all perfect , other than that ....spot on! All sag’s are quite similar in some respects .
Kaylz - 15-Apr-18 @ 2:26 AM
Some of it ain't true. I'm not a talkative guy, actually I'm the quiet, shy type. I'm also not impatient and frank. I do love the outdoors though.
Drew - 5-Jan-18 @ 4:33 PM
That's true, I never like to stay in one place, I constantly wanna get out of the house.

I agree with the description. I feel that one can rise up from the hard times and become a better person. Always try to improve yourself emotionally, physically and spiritually so that you can live your life to the full :-)
Angie - 3-Oct-17 @ 5:01 PM
The only thing I'm not is talkative. Actually the exact opposite. At the same time I'm not shy though. I wonder why that is.
Deme - 25-Jul-17 @ 2:30 AM
I share many of these traits and I like to think that i do my best with them. I hope that they're as universal as I'd like them to be.Cheers.

i am sagi i know we can be two things either we become leader and lead. or become nothings bcoz following people or any person is not in our blood. either we will be king or we leave independent life.
dragon - 19-Jul-17 @ 10:17 AM
why some people being sagi act different from other sagi? i am sagi by sun sign and asscendant. but i act more like cap and virgo . my moon sign is libra.
jai - 19-Jul-17 @ 10:11 AM
Sorry to say..not all people of this sign good to get along..infect I have a family member,i'm not gonna say who it is,but damn it...it's so hard to live with that person..not only that person is arrogant and thinks that no one is better than that said person but also so childish that he/she fights for merely trivial things .. seriously,and so theatrical and dramatic and often wants get praise.severly alcoholic and lying is a hobby.The whole family members are getting sick of it which includes me...well you can get the picture.*(plz understand I'm only describing our particular family member,these does not include others,I request to othe people of this sign plz don't get offended,its just that I'm really really sick of this particular persons attitude towards others.)

mitch - 13-Jun-17 @ 2:12 AM
Just curious as to which how accurate our horoscopes actually are As opposed to the affects of placebo and involuntary emulation after exposure to pre conceived ideology or traits of said specific zodiac
Theo - 4-May-17 @ 8:43 PM
As much as iI hate to admit it this imformarion is right on pount. I started out justl ike a sag from what I hear as a baby got a little shy as a teen until I had a few drinks .But by the time I hit college up until now people already no. oh and i am cosedered a leader by most.
Lon - 17-Apr-17 @ 10:22 AM
Hey! I am a sag! I am exactly like that! I swear to God this could not be more Relatable! I have been misunderstood to be blunt and too honest... But it's just me being... Me! Don't EVER tell a sag how to live their life... Or to chill. They Will BLOW UP AND HURT YOU. We sags know how to hurt you. And trust me... When we do. It's gonna hurt c:
Happy - 26-Feb-17 @ 6:51 PM

At the heart of this constellation is a supermassive black hole that tears apart and absorbs anything that ventures too close.Could be relevant.
Just Sayin' - 21-Nov-16 @ 5:38 PM
Im not much of the outdoors guy but, most of these traits are true.
Prof. Cas$ - 29-Sep-16 @ 4:16 PM
NASA has just altered the dates. First time they've been altered in 2000 yrs or so. I am no longer a miserable Capricorn but a fun loving Sagittarius. Bring it on.Having said that I guess the stars are applicable to your actual date of birth so in reality I'm still a fekin Capricorn :-(
Ray - 20-Sep-16 @ 12:47 PM
I am a Sag and I was blamed for speaking harshly. But after few months those who blamed came back to me and said, "Oh. I should have listened to you". Sag's are instinct based creatures. Sometimes our instinct can tell even the future. Many called me asarrogant and yet they just could not digest the fact that I love animals very much and I am a vegan. And one more fact about Sag, Sags can be easily fooled and a Sag person can forgive and forget anything but If you betray (A Traitor) a Sag, You can never ever gain Sag's trust again. Sag's are usually very good to other people but if they are in a bad mood, please run away, Because we Sags know exactly how to hurt you.

Ok Just What I needed to See...!!! Now I see why I end up with conversations with total strangers,any age, All Genders. I have always love my neighbor as I also love myself.My Character proved it.
DJ - 19-Jun-16 @ 11:58 AM
I think it's really funny, because this is how I would describe myself. I'm not the nicest person ever to exist though. :)
Bella - 29-Mar-16 @ 5:29 AM
I am a sag and I get really jealous when it comes to attention. I like being right in the middle of anyone's thoughts. I'm a little nosy but I think of it as helping.
Jolie - 27-Mar-16 @ 8:33 PM
This is really true! im a sag and I can say that my friends know how to get on my bad side! But I don't really maintain relationships a lot if you don't include that I've been friends with someone for 5 whole years! :P But really I go with chestnut about the thing that you stop liking someone after a while.. Hehits really funny I like someone for a while and stop liking them after my friend starts liking them or they just seem different . Its true that I don't think of taking something else if I give someone something its just not what I learned or my nature.
Jazz - 13-Mar-16 @ 10:49 PM
I think the part about jealous needs to be rewritten. As a Sag, I get jealous very easily. Not in a possessive "Back off my man!" type of way but more of a "Why are you laughing at her jokes? Am I not funny enough for you? I'm the funniest person you know! Come back and pay attention to me!". Like Marie said, I think we Sags treat affection like a competition. We want to be number one in our loved one's lives (usually because we treat them as number one) and we feel like we're not getting the proper attention and devotion, we're prone to jealousy.
sousaphone93 - 18-Jan-16 @ 4:55 AM
Also, I think Sag men(my refrences) are very childish & often inconsiderate. Sorry to say, but that's my experience with them.
Marie - 17-Jan-16 @ 6:36 AM
Oh that jealousy part is so not entirely true. And it's about the attention they're jealous, not of the person you give the attention to. Also Sags are very competitive. They don't see this as a bad thing, they see it as healthy competition and they'll compete in conversation with their parter, daughter, anyone in the inner circle. All good & well until they lose the battle or they feel like someone has stepped on their pride by proving to know more about the subject or so. So although all the above may be true, this is a 100% sure thing they can add. Also are Sags going to be alone forever I wonder? Because it seems like they just can't express love. If've sometimes see them end up with someone who's equally doing their own thing, more like roommates, two ships sailing past eachother with an (very) ocasional kiss. Anyways speaking as a daughter of a Sag and (unfortunately) an ex-girlfriend of a Sag guy.
