Whether this astrological sign belongs to you or not, this information will help you understand this fiery Sag sign a little better.
1. Sagittarius Is a Forward Thinker
Sagittarius doesn’t waste a single moment thinking about the past. Their approach to life is all about the future, how they’ll get there, and what fascinating people and places they’ll encounter along the way. Jupiter, the planet of abundance and goodwill, rules this sign. This means that Sag has an insatiable hunger for knowledge and growth.
This also makes the Sagittarius zodiac sign open-minded and accepting of those around them. They’ll listen attentively to everyone’s perspective, and gather that information to form their own. Sag will then have no problem speaking up if their opinion is different, or if they notice something has been mis-stated (more on this in #2!). All of this makes the Sagittarius astrological sign a dynamic, versatile individual in whatever path in life they wander down.
As mentioned previously, Sags seek out adventure and love seeking a new path over following the established trail. They are not just the life of the party; they are the ones at the party that everyone gravitates toward. Natural flirts, a Sagittarius welcomes this attention! In fact, despite Geminis being considered the most talkative of the zodiac signs, Sag takes a close second for this title. Blessed with the gift of meaningful gab, you definitely want to chat with a Sag for deep and fascinating conversation.

Trustworthy Sagittarius always has your best interest in mind, and they are confident enough to lay down the truth, even if it’s unpleasant. You want this levelheaded voice of truth near you at all times, especially if you’re in en emotional rut. And while this dedication to honesty is admirable, be warned that Sag won’t hold back to spare your feelings. If there’s a truth to be told, regardless of how much it hurts, you’re going to get it straight up from a Sagittarius. Due to this, Sags are often accused of lacking tact.

In a long-term partner, Sag seeks someone who will excite and energize them. They must be up for spontaneous adventures, and willing to give them the space they need to let their spirit roam free.

Ruled by the planet Jupiter, Sag is all about the finer things in life. Jupiter governs excess and abundance, and it is said that anything Jupiter touches will expand.
