Sagittarius Personality Traits

Sagittarians are dedicated to determining the Truth with a capital T. It is impossible for you to lie, and you disparage those who do. You want to know what lies behind and beyond manifestation. This leads you on a quest to discover the true meaning of life. The study of philosophy often appeals to this journey, and you travel physically or intellectually down the path of Knowledge.

Freedom is extremely important to you, and you will not stay in a relationship, job, or rut that doesn’t allow you to go your own way. Your innate need to explore all of the options available will send you down many paths and diverse directions. Often, your belief that the grass is greener on the other side brings you to the realization that it’s just the same old hay. But you had to see it for yourself.

Your fiery energy needs to be expressed, and you enjoy getting outside for walks, bike travels, or horseback rides. You are likely the best-traveled person among your friends as you love visiting new places to see the possibilities.

You may need to learn tactfulness as your insight can cut to the chase in seeing true situations. When wishing to give another much-needed advice, it is best to sandwich it between compliments. “Yes, I absolutely love chili. Perhaps next time, you could use a little less salt. But thank you so much for thinking of me!”

Education is often important to you, and you can be found among college professors and grammar school principals. Your thirst for knowledge is limitless, and books can be found everywhere in your home. Following your intuition will bring you success, and you will be happy to share the rewards with your many friends.
