Everyone loves a Fire Sign, and when it comes to the Jupiter ruled Mutable Fire Sign, Sagittarius, you are no exception. In fact, you may be the most joyful and optimistic fire sign of them all, and that’s saying something! Your positive attitude is contagious, and you sprinkle that positivity on everything, everywhere you go. It’s very attractive to others and you have a wide social circle as a result, and being ruled by Jupiter, these qualities often land you some seriously lucky strikes in life. As a Mutable Sign, you embrace change and like to have a different day every day. You also need freedom in your world, and your relationships and work choices reflect that. You would rather pass up a good opportunity for freedom, just because you don’t like being weighed down. But, like the Archer that you are, when you shoot, you score, every time.

About Sagittarius

Sagittarius is, without a doubt, the most adventurous sign of the Zodiac. It‟s nothing for you to roam far away from home and family, with a suitcase or backpack as your chief companion, in search of adventure. The idea of going to the ends of the Earth to find one‟s true path is a tale based on the Sagittarian way of thinking (and you probably know that this is a story that‟s been told for countless ages). For you, even the most personal spiritual quest is a journey, and one that may take you places very different from that of your birth, so that you can discover something that can only be truly known through your experience, within you.

Not all Sagittarians are particularly enamored with the mystical experience. If the cab driver says they are only driving to support themselves while doing off-Broadway, but are headed for bigger things, check out the birthday on their certificate. This is a typical Sagittarian true story. Next time you see them they may be starring in a feature film. I have known several Sagittarians who worked their way through prestigious colleges and universities doing things some folks make a career of, and having fun all the way, because it‟s an adventure. CEO‟s of multinational business, high profile attorneys in huge law firms, professors at prestigious universities, Nobel Prize winners all number an unusually high percentage of Sagittarians in their ranks. It‟s not surprising, though, because quitting or giving up is generally not considered to be a part of the Sagittarian vocabulary.

Travel is always a big thing for people of your sign. I usually joke with my Sagittarian friends that when they show up anywhere and are greeted by friends or family (you usually have plenty of either, or both) that the first thing they hear is “how long before your plane leaves?” It‟s true though, once you Sagittarians are on the move, you never slow down again if you can help it.

One thing about Sagittarians that amazes individuals of other signs is how you manage to get your foot in your mouth so often. It‟s not that you think of the wrong thing to say, it‟s the way it‟s put that often shocks, or even hurts, others. When I teach classes about the signs, I always talk about the Sagittarian who runs into a friend they haven‟t seen in a long time in a restaurant, and blurts out loudly enough for everyone to hear, “Good gosh, last time I saw you, you must have been what, 50 pounds heavier?” or tells the waiter “We need to split the desert - my companion doesn‟t need the calories.” You‟re a Sagittarian. You know what we‟re talking about here - whenever you have to ask, “what did I say?” just put yourself in the position of the person to whom you just gave “friendly advice” in public. Only a few know that there is no malicious intent or cruelty behind what you say, and those few have probably developed thick skins during the time they‟ve enjoyed your scathing humor, whether intentional or not. Long time friends know to be careful. Your sweeping hand gestures can easily knock over every drink on the table. I knew a woman once who was so happy that her Sagittarian boyfriend was taking her out dancing. Not really joking, I warned her to wear steel-toed boots. She actually I was being really funny until the next day when she complained about her scuffed shoes and swollen toe, and told me the story about how he tripped over himself and fell, causing her to almost die of embarrassment. Don‟t try to be delicate, Sagittarius. That‟s a Libra thing.

Most Sagittarians are not averse to taking chances, risks, or even gambling. The whole idea of beating the odds is what appeals to you. You‟re not one to be backed into a corner, threatened, or pushed around either. Anyone who tries, learns quickly what Jupiter‟s thunderbolts are like, either from a volley of words that leaves them feeling like they‟re facing judgment day, or other reprimands that can only be guessed at by the lingering sensations they experience while raising themselves from the pavement. However, it is rare to find anyone as true to their word and themselves as you. Your honest heart and sense of adventure will open doors for you and make anything you want to achieve possible.

Lucky Streak

You seem to draw luck your way, but this is because of your positive attitude and your sunny disposition and because you are ruled by optimistic and lucky Jupiter. That always attracts good things. You weather the hardships and expect that tomorrow will always be brighter. Your curious personality and appetite for life brings to you many opportunities. Just be mindful that you look before you leap, thought, because if anyone can act on impulse, it’s you. The upside of this is that, should you find yourself in an uncomfortable situation, you’ll always find a way to change it. Life is ever-evolving and never static for the energetic and opportunistic Sagittarius. And that’s exactly how you like it, because that is when you feel your luckiest. Keep the optimistic confidence of Jupiter in your corner every day, and the lucky strikes will keep on striking.


Because you are interested in so many things, you can talk about nearly any subject. You’ve got plenty of ideas and are quick to share them with others. In business, this makes you great at public relations. Your career needs to be something that continually piques your interest, though, or you’ll get bored and rock the boat. Your best accomplishments are likely to be achieved when you’re working under pressure. At the same time however, you are also Jupiter ruled which makes the big wide world your oyster when it comes to work. Travel related work, or work that is different every day will feed that expansive mind of yours. You also are most happy when you are making a difference and helping others, so work in charity or non profits, or in the world making a difference is where you will be most successful.

Love & Relationships

If there is any complaint to be had of Sagittarius, it’s that your Mutable nature keeps you from tying yourself down to any one person or relationship for too long. Oh sure you can be committed, but long term relationships won’t work for you unless the other person can offer you something different, new, and exciting, every single day. That’s a big ask of anyone. So you are better served in love by keeping these intentions up front at all times in love. You’re always looking for the next experience, the next activity. You’re naturally optimistic, and you rarely let your emotions get in the way of your success in love. That could be problematic given that emotions are necessary in relationships. The upside is that you aren’t too emotional, so you don’t hold grudges for long, and you don’t understand people that do. At the same time, you let grudges in love go under the bridge, because for you, life is too short to be anything but happy.

Element - Fire Sign

The fire signs are always masculine, or positive. If you were born an Aries, a Leo, or a Sagittarius, then you were born a Fire Sign. Of course, not all fire signs are going to behave the same. Even two different Leo’s can be very different from each other, because of the way that the rest of their planets fall. Remember, the Sun sign is only one part of astrology! There’s so much more to discover.

See if you recognize yourself in these points.

  • You’re gregarious and usually enjoy the company of others.
  • Your personality can light up a room and make a gathering come to life.
  • You’re confident in your abilities to get things done.
  • You’re good at motivating others.
  • You’re goal oriented.
  • You may be prone to outbursts of temper.
  • You like things to revolve around you.
  • You want to have your own way.
  • You can act impulsively.
  • You may be prone to pessimism.
  • You are creative in some way.
  • You are able to take the initiative.
  • You can be very self­sufficient.
  • You inspire others.

The Quadruplicities

Even though all fire signs are going to be very similar, there’s a lot of difference between them. This is because of the triplicities, or the qualities of those signs. Just like there are four elements­­ Fire, Earth, Air, Water­­there are three triplicities. These are Cardinal, Mutable, and Fixed.

The Mutable quadruplicity is softer than that of the Cardinal quadruplicity. This quality is adaptable. It’s the ‘go along with the crowd’ energy of the zodiac. Perhaps you recognize yourself here?

  • You go along with the crowd.
  • You aren’t particularly interested in leadership.
  • You enjoy discussing new ideas.
  • You aren’t particularly assertive or dominant.
  • You’re willing to follow others.
  • You’re able to work as part of a team.
  • You’re content to be in the middle of things.
  • You’re cautious about taking risks.
  • You’re responsible and trustworthy.

Fire Element - Sagittarius

If you were born a Sagittarius, then you’re going to be known for being optimistic, honest, and maybe a bit tactless. You’re not trying to hurt anyone’s feelings, you just seem to have a knack of always sticking your foot in your mouth. As if that weren’t enough, because you’re really trying to be friendly and understanding, it will be hard for you to comprehend just why you upset someone. Remembering that you meant well­­ maybe even explaining this to others ­­will help you to keep calm and cheerful about the situation. You may have to accept that you’re just not the diplomat that you think you are.

You do have a wicked sense of humor though, with a sharp wit, and a unique approach to things. You require your friends and loved ones to be honest and open, and you abhor people who try to take advantage of you. There’s a lot of nervous energy here, and a lot of compassion. You’re bold, and it’s not out of your reach to make real changes to the world ­­or at least to your world ­­through your optimism and your humanitarian approach to life.

You’re unlikely to be able to keep your thoughts to yourself, and you’d do well to try to remember that some of the things in the back of your mind should just stay there. You speak your truth without sugar coating, and people can read you like a book because you’re not very good at hiding your emotions or your opinions.You’re talkative and extroverted, but you may have to watch your temper if people try to take advantage of you or back you into a corner. Because of your openness and your innocence, it’s hard for others to stay cross with you for long. Just don’t take their forgiveness for granted; it may not always be there. You’re not one to run with the crowd. Yours is the expansive mindset, the need for an audience, the urge to travel and learn. You can be quite philosophical, and while you enjoy learning and growing, you’re not one for a lot of responsibilities. Too many obligations can make you rebellious and petulant. Mood swings are not uncommon. You’re very free­spirited, and while you fall in love easily and often, you might have trouble with commitment. You need a partner who can make you feel like you’re keeping your independence, someone who captivates you enough that you want to stay, rather than feel you have to stay.

You’ll need to watch your communication a bit, because you can be a bit of a gossip, and you’re prone to sarcasm­­ which not everyone is going to understand. You’re honest, sometimes brutally so, and it’s hard for you to tell a lie unless you’re spinning a wonderful tale to entertain people. You’re generous, you feel genuine compassion for those less fortunate than you, and you’ll always champion and try to help the underdog. Your mind is keen with a sharp memory ­­but you’re likely to forget things that disinterest you in a heartbeat. All in all you’re fun to be with, and you really can help others to reach their goals and their ambitions.

Here are how some of your main personality traits are expressed.

  • You do your best to be cheerful at all times.
  • You’re good ­hearted.
  • You always mean well.
  • You have an interesting sense of humor.
  • You like to keep busy.
  • You love animals and hate to see them hurt.
  • You’re confident.
  • You’re very open ­minded.
  • You’re honest, sometimes to a fault.

  • You’re very generous.

  • Sagittarius children will lose respect if you lie to them.
  • Sagittarius children are clumsy.
  • Sagittarius children need a lot of patience.
  • Sagittarius children aren’t good with money.
  • Sagittarius children are restless and lose interest in things easily.

The key to Sagittarius’s success is to learn how to blend honesty with tact and to blend their dreams and goals with something that is attainable. As with most things in life, qualities that may seem undesirable at first (like bluntness) can be turned to a real advantage if they’re simply understood more, and applied to the right place. It’s taking the time to understand this that may be the problem, because Sagittarians don’t have a lot of tenacity.
