People born under the Sagittarius sign (November 22 – December 21) are spontaneous individuals that can find adventure and fun wherever they may go.
If you’ve ever been in a friendship or relationship with a Sagittarius, then you’ve most likely already noticed that they are witty and seem to avoid drama at all cost.
However, there is a lot more to know about this zodiac sign, and we’ve chosen 9 of the most common personality traits to give you an idea of what makes a Sagittarius unique.
1. Sagittarius Can Be Bluntly Honest
The archer is a straight shooter and expects those that they let into their lives to be truthful with them in return. They value honesty above all else and are deeply hurt when they feel they’ve been lied to. If they do catch you lying to them, it may be impossible ever entirely to regain their trust.
They can be blunt at times and aren’t a fan of sugar coating problems to make them seem like less of an issue. Their friends often love this trait because they know they’re going to get an honest, unbiased opinion from them.
2. Sagittarius Is Empathetic and Intuitive
One of the most intuitive signs, they can quickly read the intentions of most people they come into contact with.
If they get bad vibes about something or someone, they trust that gut feeling and try to stay away. Although being so empathetic can also be exhausting for them because they can be easily overwhelmed if there is too much negativity. When a Sagittarius hits that point, it’s best to take a breather and head someplace quiet for a while.
3. Sagittarius NEVER Abandons Those They Love
This sign is extremely loyal to their loved ones and will always be there for them when needed. It doesn’t matter if it’s 4 a.m. and you woke them up because you’re too tipsy to drive and need a ride home. They may gripe a little about not having time for coffee, but they would never leave you stranded.
They consider this loyalty part of the unspoken bond of friendship and hope you would do the same for them.
4. When Emotionally Hurt, Sagittarius Will Go Into Hiding
Sagittarius men and women are profoundly emotional but have trouble showing this side to everyone. They hate crying in front of people, and when they are hurt, they tend to disappear for a while. Concealing their feelings and taking time to heal themselves in private is how they cope with problems.
Although they might be shy about showing their painful feelings to others, they still want someone to care about them and check up on them if they do disappear.
5. Sagittarius Is Curious and Loves To Create New Things
Creativity and curiosity are common traits for Sagittarius to have. They love to learn new things and are naturally inquisitive. Finding new information about their favorite subjects is fascinating for a Sagittarius. Many people who are born under this sign go on to become amazing writers, musicians, artists, and dancers. They seem drawn to anything artistic that gives them a chance to create and express themselves.
6. Sagittarius Is An Optimistic Dreamer
Sagittarius is an enthusiastic sign which always sees the glass as half full. They face their problems head-on and see no use in dwelling on them after they’re in the past. They often have grandiose dreams and work hard to achieve them. They never give up on them even if they have to put them on hold for a bit while they chase another dream. If you care about a Sagittarius, it’s essential for them to know that you support their goals.
7. Sagittarius Is Independent And Loves Freedom
This sign doesn’t deal well with control freaks, and they hate having rules set for them by people who aren’t in charge of them. If you’re the controlling type, your relationship probably won’t last long with a Sagittarius because they love having the freedom just to be their genuine self. If you try to set too many rules, they will immediately distance themselves.
8. Sagittarius Is A Risk Taker
It’s impossible to hit the jackpot if you aren’t willing to take a few risks. In this regard, they seem to be born on the lucky side of the stars. ‘Go big or go home’ is one of their mottos and it most often pays off for them. Some people may view them as being reckless, but it’s this attitude that often brings about discoveries and ideas that were just waiting to happen.
9. A Sagittarius Is Cautious When It Comes To Their Heart
Sagittarius may take risks in other areas of their lives, but when it comes to love, they can be almost overly cautious. They take their time, really getting to know someone before they fully commit and give their heart to them. They believe in love at first sight, but if someone comes on too fast and too strongly, they will most likely make a bee-line in the other direction. They don’t take matters of the heart lightly, so if a Sagittarius has fallen in love with you, it’s the kind of love that will last a lifetime.
Sagittarius is one of the most loyal and caring signs to be friends with. If you’ve ever been close to a Sagittarius have you noticed these personality traits? Or, if you are a Sagittarius do you recognize any of these characteristics in yourself? We’d love to hear your thoughts!
