Stars Crossed - How to Get Along with Sagittarius

The Stars Crossed series focuses on astrological compatibility. While it’s way more complicated than just your Sun sign, we’re starting off with the Sun because it is an important part of your astrology profile. After all, it’s your core personality. 

This month, we look at Sagittarius. Keep in mind this will be general info. As we progress in this series, we’ll look at many other details so you can get the complete picture of the Sagittarius in your life (or yourself).

What to know about Sagittarius:

Element: Fire
Quality: Mutable
Symbol: The Archer
Ruling Planet: Jupiter
Key Phrase: I see.
Traits: honest, adventurous, optimistic, loves freedom

The two things to keep in mind if you want to get along with Sagittarius folks are truth and freedom. Simple? Yes and no. Sagittarius is notoriously blunt and independent, which can feel like a harsh brush-off to sensitive types. But if you learn to roll with this vibe, you’ll see that these fiery Archers make excellent companions.

Sagittarius is mutable, which means change is vital for their happiness. They hate being pinned down. You must give them room to breathe, roam, think, and explore. If you can stay busy while they’re off seeing the world, you won’t have time to worry about what they’re up to. Because they’re honest, they’ll let you know what they’re doing. See how this works?

Because of their tendency to flit around the globe, these restless souls need to wait before settling down. If they partner up too early, they might resent it later. When that happens, a good ole midlife crisis solves the problem. While some Sagittarius folks are capable of commitment, they fare better if they have life experience under their belt first. However, if they have a partner with a nomadic spirit (looking at you, Gemini), they have no trouble hanging in for the long run.

Sagittarius tends to be happy-go-lucky, which is an attractive quality. They’re fun to be around. Spend time with these optimists, and you’ll feel better in a flash. If you’re a cynic, their peppy demeanor might be annoying. Even so, it’s hard not to like Archers.

They’re a Fire sign, so they have a million passions and plenty of energy. It’s challenging to keep up with them! Physical activity makes their hearts swoon, so you’ll want to be active, too. Sports, exercise, or running multiple errands – get ready to move your body!

While Sagittarius is known for honesty, at times, their delivery can be brutal. You’ll need to have a thick skin because that truth can sting. Most of them are not good liars. When they try to fib, it shows on their faces immediately. However, I’ve met a few who were accomplished at the art of deception. While they didn’t get away with it for long, they were convincing. The reason why: they’re sincere, so you assume they’re telling the truth. That ability to convey trust means they can fool some of the people some of the time.

Romancing a Sagittarius: It’s best to be straightforward if you want to charm a Sagittarius. Don’t play games. They hate that. Instead, let them know you like them immediately. Chase them a bit. They’ll adore being pursued. Because they’re a Fire sign, they’ll want to take the lead eventually. For dates, you want to consider new experiences instead of the usual dinner and a movie. (Avoid Netflix and chill…they want to be out and about). Tickets to cool concerts, road trips to interesting destinations, long hikes, or horseback riding win their restless hearts. Conversation is important for Archers, too. If you’re up on current events and love philosophy, you’ll have plenty to chat about. They’re also outrageous flirts. If you’re the jealous type, that might get on your last nerve.

Sagittarius parents: Open communication, fun, adventure, and trust make Sagittarius wonderful parents. These free spirits allow their youngsters to be themselves. They never try to mold them into mini-mes. However, they tend to be a bit freewheeling when it comes to discipline. They want to be friends with their kids, so they’ll be a bit more easygoing than some of the other signs of the zodiac. In some cases, they can be neglectful. Their desire for freedom at all costs can lead to irresponsibility. Keep in mind these are only extreme cases. For the most part, they are playful, honest, and willing to give their children a lot of space to just be kids.

Sagittarius children:  Sagittarius children have tons of energy right out of the womb. As soon as they can walk, they’re ready to run! In other words: these live wires will keep you on your toes. If you want to make them happy, regular physical activity is a must. Get outdoors, hit the playground, and let them burn off that energy! They are curious about the world, so books about philosophy and social justice will interest them. If you can travel, you’ll spark a lifelong love of exploring. Sagittarius kids demand total honesty. If they sense you’re twisting the truth, they’ll call you on it. They’re skilled debaters, so choose your battles wisely. Give them as much freedom as you can, but make sure they respect your rules, too. Compromise will be necessary if you want peace and peace of mind.

Sagittarius bosses: A Sagittarius boss wants a positive working environment for their employees, so they’ll do what they can to make that happen. Fairness, honesty, and generosity – if you work for an Archer, you’ll get a square deal. They’re natural leaders and know how to inspire people. Because they are passionate about their work, they’ll expect you to be, too. If you’re not a good team player, you won’t last long. Keep in mind they are independent, which means they’ll expect you to work without supervision. If you need a lot of direction, you might want to look for employment elsewhere.

Sagittarius employees: Sagittarius are trustworthy types, so they make excellent employees. They tend to be extroverted, which means you’ll want to avoid sticking them in the back. Instead, put them out front where they can be part of the action. Better yet: give them a travel allowance and the ability to work remotely. They’ll love that! Because many Archers hate being tied down, they choose freelance work. An independent contractor gig means they’re free to do other things once the contract comes to an end.

Sagittarius friends: If fun, truth, and adventure appeal to you, you’ll love having a Sagittarius pal. They are always up for something. A last-minute road trip, spontaneous dance party, or visit to a casino – you can count on your Sagittarius friend to drop everything and go! They’ll never lie to you. But if you ask if the pants make your butt look big, don’t expect a soft touch. At times, they can be flaky. It sucks when they blow you off for something else that seems more exciting, but soon enough, they’ll be back with lots of tales about their latest madcap adventure and tickets to a rave. It’s hard to stay mad at them.

I hope you enjoy this peek into fun-loving Sagittarius folks. Next up: Capricorn Suns.
