The Sagittarius Zodiac sign is what we’re digging into today and it’s going to be epic…
Any true Harry Potter fan will tell you that one the series unsung heroes is Hagrid the Giant. Not only did he introduce Harry to the wizarding world (and put his extended family back in their close-minded place), he protected him and his friends during all their wild adventures.
While Hagrid was always there for his wizard friends, he lead his own adventure filled life — from keeping to school grounds to teaching students to interact with large wild creatures, he stayed constantly busy. Characters of all kinds depended on him for his fine tuned skills, quick thinking, and wise advice.
So, not surprisingly, Hagrid (and anyone else born November 22nd – December 21st) is a fiercely independent and loyal Sagittarius.

All in all, those with the Sagittarius Zodiac sign have a fantastic positive energy!
They are typically:
- Logical thinkers
- Risk takers
- Good natured
- Brutally honest
- Go with the “flow”
- Good sense of humor/funny
They seize life by its reins and rarely let an adventure pass them by. However, they’re natural realists and like to think with their head — not their heart. If something seems too reckless or illogical they’ll be the first to head back home.
Some say the Sagittarius is the luckiest of all the signs. Even with their realist attitude, they’re likely to wager all they have in hopes of a big payout or benefit!
This tendency often shows up in their career paths as they’re likely to find jobs with less stability than their parents (or landlords) would like.
Once their mind is made up however, even a speech laced with sound logic can’t change it… and they’ll let you know that… The Sagittarius is not one to hold their tongue to preserve feelings.
They’re no stranger to a friendly debate at a party (or Thanksgiving dinner)!
Their independent streak is the trademark of a Sagittarius. No matter what they’re doing, you can bet they didn’t check around to see if other people agreed with it or had an opinion about it. They do their own thinking and calculate their own risks.
Because of their ability to sniff out new opportunities, Sagittarius Zodiac sign people are natural-born trailblazers and leaders. People quickly come to expect them to be upfront, honest, and passionate about whatever they’re doing.
If there’s one person who doesn’t suffer from lack of confidence, it’s a Sagittarius dude.
He’s the one that struts into a networking meeting, tailored suit on point, and chats up the VP without a second thought.
However, his initial attitude may be misleading. While Sagittarius men are naturally confident, after they have entered a situation or relationship, they usually dial their intensity back and observe. They don’t like to be in the spotlight all the time, only when it really counts.
Some people call this sign the luckiest of them all, and the male characteristics really showcase that aspect.
Sagittarius guys are the friend that’s always “falling” into opportunities that other people have been working toward their whole lives.
Maybe the bartender they chat up happens to be related to the CEO of a major company and gets them a gig. Or the person they stand in line behind at the grocery store becomes their long-time girlfriend. Whatever they’re up to, you can bet they’re making the most of it.
Sagittarius Men in Relationships
In relationships a Sagittarius guy doesn’t need much time to call it love… but they need a lot more time to really mean it.
It’s not that they’re dishonest, they just get caught up in the idea of things as opposed to the real deals.
After some relationship milestones (like the first fight), a Sagittarius man will start to gain true feelings and chase after the relationship.,,
Oh… and the Sag’s brutal honesty doesn’t disappoint here. If he’s “not feeling” a fling he’ll call it off without a second thought.
However if he’s really invested in a relationship, he’ll likely fight for it in true fire sign fashion!
Human connection is the mac to a Sagittarius woman’s cheese. One of the things she craves most in this world is the stellar communication that a strong connection brings.
This means she will likely choose a career that has her working front and center with people. While she’s a fast and creative worker, she can be unreliable and flighty… But, once a Sagittarius woman sets her eyes (and heart) on something, she doesn’t look back, even if that means leaving a job hanging.
Overall, her goal in life is to make people happy… because happy people lead to great connections! While she’s not afraid to say what’s on her mind, she doesn’t seek out conflict or start trouble just because.
Sagittarius Women in Relationships
In relationships a Sagittarius gal is hard to tame but easy to please.
She’s likely to drag her partner off on new adventures and let them do the same to her!
Her brutal honesty can bruise some people’s feelings, but also ensure that she’s trustworthy. She’ll tell the truth even if it hurts.
The Sagittarius Zodiac sign falls hard and fast into love and can sometimes enter things with a lead foot. If she feels that things are going well and they’re having great conversations, she’ll likely skip typical milestones and pave an atypical path!
Sagittarius Zodiac Sign History
The history of astrology signs isn’t always super juicy to talk about, but it can give some really cool insights into WHY a sign is how it is.
The Sagittarius is a mutable sign, meaning it’s pretty flexible or subject to change. This is a MAJOR factor in the Sagittarius Zodiac sign. For example…
Sagittarius born are ambitious and set big goals, but they don’t plan every step of the way. They’re open to each opportunity and flexible with how they get where they want to go. They go with the flow and expect everything to work out in the end.
All in all, a mutable sign is constantly seeking to change, which make sense especially for Sagittarius. Coming just after Scorpio, the Sagittarius sign represents the change from autumn to winter.
The Sagittarius Zodiac Symbol
The Sagittarius symbol is a little more popular than some other signs — partly because of its significance, and partly because Hunger Games hero Katniss Everdeen made archery cool again.
However the full sign includes not only the bow and arrow, but a centaur. This is said to stem from the Myth of Chiron. Chiron is said to be the ONLY centaur (half man, half animal) who never gave into his animalistic tendencies.
Among being an awesome hunter, he was an astrologer, teacher, and healer! His story quickly ended when he was shot with a poisonous arrow and put in unbearable pain. Unable to take it, he gave his immortality away and passed it on to Prometheus.
Because of the Chiron’s story and his ability to never give into animalistic instincts, a recurring Sagittarius theme is the desire to become more human.
This involves learning, teaching, healing and traveling, which could be why Sagittariuses are always on the hunt for new adventure!
Those with the Sagittarius Zodiac sign also hunt for truth! They’ll hunt that junk down until it’s found and have NO problem problem alerting others to it — even if it’s uncomfortable or not what they want to hear.
Best Sagittarius Love Matches
Heck YES! Now we’re getting to the juicy stuff!
Sagittarius and Aries
Sag and Aries is a strong match that’s rooted in intellect. It’s also FULL of sincerity (you know, the whole honesty thing?). An Aries thrives on being able to express themselves, and a Sagittarius provides a safe place for them to do that — no matter what.
Because both signs place such a high value on honesty, this match has no room for games or relationship drama.
If something arises both partners tend to address and it and move on before other couples would even notice it. Problems could pop up if the Sagittarius makes a joke out of something the Aries thinks is serious (it’s in their nature — they joke about everything!), but usually don’t last long.
In addition, both signs hold their convictions very close, so if they happen to disagree on something there will likely be a few heated dinner conversations about it. However, they’ll usually end up respecting each other’s opinions and trying to see their side of things.
Another plus for this pair is that both signs crave adventure and enjoy doing both something and nothing together… Boredom usually takes a backseat in this passionate match!

Gemini and Sagittarius
A Sagittarius and Gemini couple are easy to spot — just look for two people who look like they’re having the time of their life… when they’re just out getting coffee.
Basically, no matter where this pair goes, you can bet they’re having fun. This match brings out the natural childlike behaviors in each sign and allows them to enjoy even the simplist of things together. They’re the upbeat, happy couple that everyone wants to be around and be like.
When they do fight (and they do), it’s usually short lived and lightened up by a joke. Ironically, the Sagittarius is the serious one in this relationship, and can get a little frustrated by their Gemini’s lack of responsibility. Neither sign is extremely emotional however, so if things get tough, it’s likely that they’ll have to really work to keep things moving forward.
Sagittarius Compatibility – Not so Great Love Matches
Cancer and Sagittarius
The brutal honesty of a Sagittarius is appreciated by a lot of partners… but usually not a Cancer.
Their natural sensitivity makes a Sagittarius a bull in their fragile china shop of emotions. The way these Zodiac signs approach life are completely different — and not in the opposites attract good way.
Cancers evaluate things methodically and slowly, while a Sagittarius rushes forward hoping for the best. It’s likely each partner will find themselves in a frustrating (to say the least) situation if they have to accomplish any sort of project together. However the different perspectives can broaden each signs horizons and lead them to new self discoveries.
Virgo and Sagittarius
While both of these signs are mutable (i.e. are able to change), this match usually hosts deep rooted trust problems.
Sagittarius men and women thrive on communication — it’s their lifeline — but Virgo’s don’t place the same value on it.
Because of that, there will likely be an unsaid or underlying problem that doesn’t get addressed. And, because communication is an issue… there goes the neighborhood!
However, if these guys can nail down their expectations and work on their communication it’s possible for this pair to develop a strong relationship.
Best Careers for the Sagittarius Zodiac Sign
Because a Sagittarius is always on the hunt for change and something new, their career needs to keep up with them.
You would be hard pressed to find a Sagittarius that’s held the same job in the same company for more than a few years — they’re always on the move and always looking for bigger and better opportunities.
While they set lofty goals, they easily change them if something better comes along.
They’re flexible and willing to adapt in a lot of ways, but not if it requires them to stay still for too long. Because of their naturally flighty nature, they can seem unreliable to employers…. BUT, their creative thinking and diplomatic tendencies makes them great leaders and managers!
A Sagittarius is likely to find a fun-filled career as a:
- Travel agent
- Sales rep
- Pharmacy rep
- Freelance consultant
- Graphic Designer
Overall, any job that allows them to keep moving around, changing, and advancing will keep a Sagittarius interested!
Money and Sagittarius
Let’s just call it like it is: When it comes to money, the Sagittarius Zodiac sign keeps a pretty loose grip!
They believe that what they need will eventually find them — and they’re usually right! Considered the luckiest sign in the Zodiac, they don’t tend to lack for much. Sag’s enjoy spending and saving and generally have a great relationships with money.
Caveat: Sagittarius can be prone to gambling as betting it all doesn’t seem to scare them as much as it should. They have the tendency to only see good outcomes of a situation and can end up in some financial trouble because of that.
