Sagittarius Sun-sign: November 23 -December 21

Challenge, and a need to feel free to express themselves in their own individual way, are the two most important requisites for those who have this sign emphasized in their birth-charts. They cannot function satisfactorily without either. 

Put a lively Sagittarian in a situation where he or she has work that is repetitive, or makes no demands on them, and they will crumble. But many, of course, have to cope with such dreary circumstances, and then it is important that they should work out ways to divert their attention from what is basically an unrewarding set-up. Usually Sagittarius is resilient enough to find interesting alternatives, and it is vital that they do so, otherwise the psychological suffering they will have to endure will be nearly intolerable.

Sagittarius Makes Its Presence Felt Through a High Level of Enthusiasm

Sagittarius is a Fire sign, and this element makes its presence felt through a high level of enthusiasm for life and individual interests. To this it is possible to add that Sagittarians are keen to enjoy all aspects of life in a very positive way, and as they do so they will also inspire others to get as much out of life and their abilities as they do themselves. But challenge must be there; if it is not, then Sagittarians must create it by presenting ideas to those who matter, and by showing others precisely what they are made of.

It is also a good thing for those of this sign to express their versatility in a controlled way by doing many different things, but making quite sure that one project is completed before another is started, so that when a year's work is assessed there will be a feeling that a great deal has been achieved in a variety of fields.

A lot is said about sport and the Sagittarian. I tend to think this is overstressed, having found no greater number of sportspeople born under this sign than any other. They do most certainly need exercise, and often enjoy it more than many Zodiac types, and it is true that a young Sagittarian will be "coltish"; hopefully, however, as time passes they will develop fine, somewhat philosophically orientated qualities which will be a source of inspiration to others. Restlessness is a major fault, but can be overcome once the individual has sorted out his or her real objectives, and decided that the grass is not always greener on the other side of the hedge.

There is plenty of scope where careers are concerned. The intellectual Sagittarian will enjoy publishing or may work well in the fields of higher education, and working abroad often appeals, since many of this sign have a fine flair for languages. The veterinary profession can also be rewarding. Tradition suggests that the Law and the Church are quintessentially Sagittarian.

Sagittarians and Emotions

Claustrophobic conditions of any kind cannot be tolerated by this Zodiac group, especially when it comes to emotional relationships, chiefly because of their need for freedom of expression. Obviously, if they want a meaningful relationship to last, they have to compromise to a certain extent, but it is important that they are not constrained by a partner who is jealous, or does not fully understand the way they function.

Rather less importantly, Sagittarians hate a room with no view it makes them feel closed in. Their sense of fun is infectious and their positive, extrovert enthusiasm second to none. This is the sign of the hunter, but that does not mean that they enjoy the pursuit of wild animals; interestingly they do enjoy hunting for bargains in junk shops.

Sagittarians make exhilarating partners in spite of their need for freedom, and will always encourage their lovers to develop their individual interests. They need an energetic, lively sex life and will get very bored indeed with a partner who has no sense of fun or who is too pessimistic in outlook. 

Sagittarian Physical Challenges

If they keep busy and active they are usually very healthy, but the hips and thighs the Sagittarian body-areas are vulnerable, and it is here that most Sagittarians (Sun- and Rising-sign types) put on weight very easily. The liver is also Sagittarian ruled, hence slight "liverishness" and hangovers can be a problem.

Sagittarians and the Family

Sagittarians also make extremely lively and somewhat demanding parents no bad thing, as they will certainly get a great deal out of their children because of their ability to encourage them in just the right way. Children of this sign must be given a lot of positive encouragement, but may need controlling in a gentle but firm way so that their exuberance does not become too overwhelmingly boisterous.
