Today we’re visiting the zodiac sign of Sagittarius, designated to those born between November 22nd and December 21st. We’ll take it up to the 18th as usual, revisiting Sagittarian-Capricorn cusp next month. Sagittarius characteristics are widely varied – from shadowy and secretive Scorpio-like tendencies to outgoing, enthusiastic adventurousness.
Those born between November 19th and 24th were born on the cusp of Scorpio and Sagittarius, where the two signs converge. Thus these people can display characteristics of both. Deep dark Scorpio mixes with outwardly focused, sociable Sagittarius. If nothing else, this group are originals with their quirky views and tendency towards extremes.
Watery Scorpio blends with Sagittarian fire to create a steamy personality. A personality which is often embodied by its owner’s readiness to laugh. Laughter is lifeblood to this cusper. Friends and family are often the victims of Scorpio-Sagittarius fun-poking. Problems arise because they can’t always take mockery as easily as they give it, and withdraw in a bit of a sulk.
Friends are important to Scorpio-Sagittarius. So important that they draw them in ever closer so that they become as family. These are the people they feel comfortable relaxing with as well as doing business.
Charm, courageousness, outrageousness and loyalty are key characteristics of this segment of the population. Loved by many, their foibles are easily forgiven and forgotten. Romantically, they find it difficult to settle, especially when in early adulthood. Freedom is of paramount importance and they find it hard to reconcile it with marriage or a long-term commitment. Scorpio-Sagittarius will very likely find their true love later in life.
Sagittarius 1 covers the week November 25th to December 2nd. The great theme of this week is independence. Always seeking new horizons, fearless of new places and people, this group enjoys pushing their own boundaries. Nothing is out of reach. Conversely, home and the people therein, are the anchors that pull them back time after time.
Underneath their appearance of ‘nothing can touch me’, there lies a sensitive soul. They are very keen to see fairness done, and honor is high on their list of positive traits. They will put aside their own feelings and safety in order to leap to the aid of someone less fortunate.
Personal relationships are characterized by a mixture of willingness to cooperate and a fierce determination to maintain their access to freedom. This can cause conflict unless their partners are able to accommodate Sagittarius’s capacity to exert their will over the relationship. On the up-side, Sagittarius 1 is generous and giving to their partner and closest friends.
This group is very close to their parents, seeing the bond as one of soulmates sharing a journey. Any upsets in a family relationship, sends Sagittarius 1 into agonies of rejection, hurt and loss.
People born between December 3rd and 10th display temperaments closest to the fiery Sagittarian characteristics which their friends know and usually love. Assertive, bold, ready for adventure, this group loves to express their idiosyncrasies and eccentricities. They care more about self-expression than what others think about them. This trait becomes more pronounced the older they get.
While strangers view them as a little ‘peculiar’, Sagittarius 2s let judgment roll right off them, correctly seeing it as the problem of the other person, not themselves. They have ways of doing things that are unconventional and inventive. For these reasons, they are drawn to unusual careers which allow them to explore all the possibilities. Occasionally, they need to partake in teamwork in order to curb their extreme ‘mad professor’ tendencies.
People who are drawn to Sagittarius 2s tend to be a little bit ‘different’ themselves. Anyone who favors conventionality would not do well in this partnership. Bonds take a long time to develop between Sagittarius 2 and their erstwhile partners but when they are fully formed, the relationship is a strong one as long as they avoid emotional fixation.
The week December 11th to 18th produces people who are ever-willing to expand their horizons. Always looking outward and forward, these individuals are mature, strategic, realistic and excellent planners. This is the person who can see the bigger picture; their goals are expansive and pettiness is unthinkable. While they are always reaching for something greater, their pragmatism keeps them firmly rooted.
Sagittarius 3 personalities are unavoidable in any gathering. They garner attention by their sheer confidence. Almost anyone involved in business or a work environment must be prepared to be subordinate to Sagittarius 3. Despite their outward-looking persona, they can suffer from deep gloominess. When in this mood, they are impossible to shift, opinion-wise. They can take stubbornness to its limit. People close to them will come to understand that this phase is essential to Sagittarius 3’s well-being. It may appear negative to an observer, but actually isn’t.
Sagittarius 3s love challenges, but not necessarily competition. It is almost impossible to compete with them on normal terms in any case, as they are so fixated on the goal that no other outcome, apart from reaching it is possible.
One way to attract a Sagittarius 3 is to enchant them. They love magical things, whether it be spiritual experiences or a romantic liaison. Long-term partners may find their own ambitions take second place, so need to set some ground rules early on so that Sagittarius 3 doesn’t entirely rule their life.
Prone to feeling rejection
