Characteristics of the Sagittarius sign
Sagittarius is the ultimate empiricist. He will always choose principles over feelings and will often question his identity. He moves from one job to another, from one philosophy to another, from one belief to another. They are explorers of the human condition and they are not afraid of change. Sagittarians feel like the world is their playground. They like to explore the unknown. They want to understand how the world works.
In a boundless quest to discover the totality of the universe inside themselves, the Sagittarius zodiac signs are freed from any particular attachment. They are reckless in pursuit of what they want, and often end up doing and experiencing things that defy conceptions of the possible.
Sagittarius is an explorer. He is both the intrepid adventurer and the jaded critic. He understands that knowledge comes in two forms: superficial, disposable knowledge that comes from outside sources, and knowledge that comes from within. Sagittarius knows that external knowledge can be easily acquired while internal knowledge is exponentially deeper and more powerful. It seeks to penetrate the depths of the universe inside the human spirit. He’s not doing this to prove he has all the answers, but rather because he knows the journey is the destination.
What are the qualities of the Sagittarius sign?
Sagittarius energy is often big and bold. It is a sign that is always searching, searching, searching.
We can begin to understand the nuances of Sagittarius by looking at its ruling planet, Jupiter, the expansive and benevolent force of the cosmos. Jupiter likes to see the bigger picture, always seeking cosmic wisdom, intuition, law and order.
Jupiter therefore gives Sagittarius its affinity for adventure and novelty. Sagittarius is also associated with the ninth house in astrology – the realm of higher education, foreign travel, spirituality and wisdom.
Curious and energetic, Sagittarians are the travelers of the zodiac. Their open mind and their philosophical vision encourage them to travel the world in search of the meaning of life. Sagittarius is an extrovert, always optimistic, full of enthusiasm and ready for change. It is a sun sign of individuals who are often preoccupied with mental work, but when they find an anchor, they show their ability to transform visions and thoughts into concrete actions and circumstances.
Just like Aries and Leo, Sagittarius is a Fire sign, looking for ways to creatively color the world in their colors.
Their enthusiasm knows no bounds and these people possess a great sense of humor accompanied by an intense curiosity. Needing absolute freedom, their spirit of adventure takes them from one end of the world to the other, discovering different cultures and philosophies.
What are the flaws of the Sagittarius sign?
Sagittarians can be too ambitious. They want to believe so intensely that they can transcend the limits of reality that it is difficult for them to accept the simple joys of life that come their way. They are so focused on achieving their goals that they don’t stop to appreciate the small wins along the way. Their high demands make them appear dismissive and arrogant.
Sagittarius wants to know everything. He can get lost in his endless quest for knowledge. Their curiosity can sometimes lead them to question the foundations of their beliefs. Questioning things is their way of forming a coherent view of the world. It’s also a way to find new ways to experience the world.
They have an insatiable thirst for knowledge, but are perpetually restless, making it difficult for them to finish books or even stick to a single discipline.
Sagittarians don’t believe in security. They are always on the hunt for the next big breakthrough, and almost never look back. This tendency to give up on things before they’ve even started them often makes them feel like they can never get anything done. They can be so engrossed in a million different projects that they fail to complete any of them.
