Confined spaces are a disaster for these wandering souls, so they’ll simply flail about until they can get out.

The Sagittarius girl can always be counted on for a good time. She is fun! She is also energetic and will try just about anything. Consider her to be the original explorer. People love her and love being around her. She certainly enjoys the company but it can lead to a bit of a problem at times: She certainly has the gift for gab! Unfortunately, she has the tendency to blurt out whatever is on her mind without thinking first. However, she will be very honest since she is a truth seeker. Quite deep, she will be sincere and passionate about something that interests her. When she does find something that interests her, she’ll go after it. She won’t have much time left to worry about her looks. In the social whirl, she’s a great friend who happily shares her clothes with the gals and can chat for hours. School will be on her own terms, meaning she’s likely to excel at the one subject that interest her most — perhaps letting her other subjects fall by the wayside. When it comes to higher learning, a semester abroad, or even the whole four years, would be heaven on earth for her!
Ready to roam the world, a Sagittarian young man has adventuring in his blood. A trek in the Himalayas would be just the beginning for this fellow.

One of his most refreshing qualities is that he’s open to all cultures in both his friendships and romantic relationships. He’s also a popular guy as he’s funny, demonstrative and very generous. His life is a non-stop adventure as he chases after his wildest pursuits. Sports provide one outlet for his adventuresome energy. He is definitely an extreme sports fan who is ready to try anything at least once in his life.
Sagittarius and Independence: Independence is Sagittarius’ principle; they crave adventure and excitement and welcome change with open arms. Sagittarius is the sign of the philosopher and the explorer, they will go as far as road will go and explore every corner thoroughly in their ever eternal search for wisdom. Freedom is so important to Sagittarius that they will actually make decisions based on the amount of freedom that is given by the choice they have made, as a result, sometimes a good opportunity is turned down because of it’s high commitment need, but this is their choice so it is a good choice for them.

They do not expect favors in return, their kindness is selfless. They do not interfere with other people’s plans and they are never possessive or jealous. They treat others the way they want to be treated and life based on a ‘live and let live’ policy, this makes them so agreeable. Sagittarius are excellent conversationalists with a good sense of humor, sometimes their humor is the raw truth, but these people speak their mind and don’t hold anything back. What they say is what they mean, Sagittarius do not like mind games, it holds them back trying to figure out what is meant, they like straightforwardness and expect it in return. Sagittarius are known for saying the ‘painful truth’, but on the other hand, people know that they can trust what they say because they always say what is real. A Sagittarius never hides anything. Sagittarius are very likeable people. The only people that might not get along with them are people that live by a daily agenda with a highly structured, organized life. They are likely to always be running late and miss a date, but this is only because they are so forward thinking that they forget about the present. Tolerance is required, Sagittarius does not do these things on purpose, this is just who they are. If you understand this and accept this, having a Sagittarius in your life will make the sun shine a lot brighter.
Sagittarius and Business: Sagittarius are born entertainers and conversationalists. They have no shortage of ideas due to their adventurous lifestyle and exciting life experiences. They make excellent storyteller, comedians, writers, philosophers and actors to name a few, basically Sagittarius are suited to anything as long as it does not tie them down with too much commitment. They like to make the world a better place and a career that will do that is well suited for Sagittarius, they do not however like the fine details and mundane day to day routine this bores them so they tend to procrastinate and let someone else deal with the details. They perform very well in business matters but they are at their best when it is crunch time. If now is the time for all or nothing and there is a great deal at stake, they can get anything done. Crisis brings out the best in Sagittarius; they perform their best under pressure.
Sagittarius and Temperament: Sagittarius are not emotional moody people, in fact they can be downright emotionally detached but they do get irritable when they are bored. Sagittarius is optimistic and positive, even deep inside because they believe that no matter what has happened, something good is always around the corner and the sun will always shine again.
Sagittarius Deep Inside: Sagittarius is a well-adjusted person with no emotional problems holding them back. They just want to explore the world and not fret about e
motions and feelings. Others may be hurt by their lack of commitment but they don’t care, that’s not why they are on this planet, they are here to gain wisdom, learn and explore. Sagittarius has problems finishing some projects they started if it takes too long, they want immediate results and will move on to the next project if it takes too long. This is not because of laziness, Sagittarius are far from lazy but this motivation to move on is due to their hatred of boredom. Boredom is their fear and instead of facing it, they will up and leave in search of something more stimulating. Sagittarius are not emotional people but they are easily hurt by a careless selfish action, their will be blue but turn it around pretty quickly with their naturally sunny disposition. They don’t dwell on hurt because it is a waste of their energy.
Sagittarius in a Nutshell: Sagittarius seems to be guided by luck, good things happen to Sagittarius and this is usually because of their optimistic outlook and positive disposition which attracts good fortune. Despite hardships, Sagittarius is always optimistic that good things will happen tomorrow and the future carries good luck. Sagittarius have a vibrant, expansive personality that is free like a bird, Sagittarius cannot be contained. They are full of curiosity and they always look forward to the future, never dwelling on the past. Sagittarius are detached from emotions because emotions hold a person back, they do not like to talk about their feelings, they simply experience them and move on. Sagittarius can be reckless and irresponsible because they will jump at a suggestion of something new before they weigh the advantages and disadvantages.
Sagittarius Health: Sagittarius, the Archer, is the third sign of the Fire triplicity and the ninth sign of the tropical zodiac. This freedom-loving sign is ruled by Jupiter, Lord of Fortune and Expansion. The key phrase for Sagittarius is “I see”. The symbols for Sagittarius are the hunter (archer) and the centaur, a mythical half-man, half-horse. These signify the search for truth and knowledge, as well as the constant pursuit of adventure and new ideas. Intellectual curiosity covers a wide range of subjects, but Sagittarius does get bored and restless when surrounded by dull people or circumstances.
Sagittarians would rather learn on their own, through travel and experience, than endure structured classroom environments and routine work assignments. However, having broadened their knowledge and gained experience in the world on their own, they could become excellent teachers or administrators in the very educational system they once found so restricting.
Frank Sagittarius does not hesitate to give an honest opinion, which can seem tactless at times – although it is rarely the intention to be cruel. Sagittarian people have a ready wit and appreciate the humor in even the grimmest of situations.
Sagittarius Rules the Hips
Each sign has internal, external and structural ruler ships. Externally, Sagittarius rules the region around the hips, gluteal muscles, thighs and has considerable influence over the muscles in general. Internally, it has ruler ship of the sciatic nerve, iliac arteries and veins and considerable influence on the liver, lungs and motor nerves. Structurally, it rules the four coccygeal vertebrae, sacral bones and femur.
The diseases of Sagittarius particularly involve the hips and thighs. Injury to these areas is common, especially if horse-riding is involved. The pain of sciatica has long been associated with this sign.
The expansive, pleasure loving influence of Jupiter inclines to the excessive consumption of rich food and drink, sometimes leading to arthritic pains in the hips. Since Sagittarius is a fire sign, the tendency to feverish complaints is also marked.
What it’s Like to Date a Sagittarius Woman: She has a great attitude and always seems to be on the go. Sagittarius woman is for the man with lots of energy and creativity. She likes unconventionality and change, so whisk her away last second to somewhere unplanned and uncharted and she will remember you forever. In order for her to stay, you have to keep her happy. If she gets unhappy or bored, she won’t bother to fix any problems; she will just walk out and never look back. Fortunately, it is not that difficult to keep her happy.
Be her friend, she does not take love to seriously anyway, if you are her companion, love will blossom after that. Let her have her freedom, flirt with her and take the relationship slowly, do not rush her. Be truthful, genuine, positive and adventurous and never play mind games. The lucky man will not only have a wonderful fun relationship but an adventurous companion as well.
What it’s Like to Date a Sagittarius Man: This man may be difficult to pin down. He loves the trill of the chase so he may be off trying to get other women at the same time you are trying to get him. He is sincere when we says he likes you but he means it to other women when he tells other women the same thing. He is not showy or romantic, and he tends to attract women who like the thrill of the chase themselves, which is not too bad of a gamble. In order to win him over, be modest about love, do not engage him in emotional commitment like conversations about being together in the future. Sagittarius is for the woman who does not want commitment or is afraid of being tied down in a relationship. This man is perfect for the adventurous, fearless female.
How to Attract Sagittarius: Talk to them, ask them questions about themselves, share stories, make them laugh, but do not pry into intimate details about their life. Keep your emotional distance and they will be attracted to you. Easy. Suggest an outdoor date, something wild and wacky like floating on a boat down the river then having a picnic by the riverside, and anything. They love activities. These are the easiest people to get a date with but don’t think that this is written in stone, they are the biggest commitment phoebe of all zodiac signs. Enjoy the time you’ve spent with Sagittarius and be prepared to move on or at least share them with others because they will be doing the same. All in good fun.
You & Your Sagittarius

… Give your Sagittarius the emotional and physical freedom that they need.

… Be enthusiastic, energetic and ever ready for adventure.
… Enjoy all sides of the relationship — Sagittarius can be your playmate, your inspiration and your best friend.
… Subject your Sag to the darker, more negative side of your personality. The Archer needs to see the positive side of life, even if it means ignoring your depression.
… Tell Sag that you’re right and they’re wrong. They like to feel that they have the best answer to any question or situation.
… Try to keep your Sagittarius in a small, confined area, no matter how plush it is. They will feel cramped or caged and will need to escape.
… Turn a blind eye to the Sagittarian fondness for betting. Some Sagittarians can’t restrain themselves when it comes to the tables, the sports book or gambling in general.
… Be impatient with the relationship — if you expect declarations or demonstrations of eternal love, your patience may be tested. Sagittarians are independent, and will likely not fall in love quickly or demonstrate it too effusively.
The Sagittarian in Love:
Sagittarians love any new form of sexual expression that challenges and excites them. Both tolerant and eager to please, their honesty can sometimes prove too much for those who prefer a more mysterious, or veiled approach to love.
Sagittarians are best involved with a steadier, stronger personality, who can understand their need for independence, yet still be there after an occasional flair of temper. Their frank and open motives are often misunderstood, threatening to more subdued signs.
Although they hate to be tied down, they are willing to experiment with all manner of relationship styles. As long as their partner is able to keep up with their wide-ranging interests and is prepared to come up with new experiments in lovemaking (and certainly does not mind them doing the same), their relationship will be exciting and reasonably long lasting. Mutual honesty is the key to success for the Sagittarian.
Your kisses are surprising, spontaneous affairs that leave the kissed wanting more.
Sagittarians need honesty like air and water. They love researching philosophies and are intelligent enough to discuss them. They’re independent souls who seek a love-mate who is individual, and independent. One who shares life values of exploring the greater mysteries of life?

Sagittarius -Taurus: Mind and heart connection is encouraging.
Sagittarius -Gemini: Creative accomplishments are brilliant and many.
Sagittarius -Cancer: Evolvement by learning to love unconditionally.
Sagittarius -Leo: A dynamic pair – loads of presence!
Sagittarius -Virgo: This union can be extremely supportive to each other.
Sagittarius -Libra: Love and work are balanced evenly.
Sagittarius -Scorpio: Both having positive attitudes – build togetherness.
Sagittarius -Sagittarius: Two lucky signs entwined – they’re in heaven!
Sagittarius -Capricorn: Cap and Sag are both focused on their quest for life.
Sagittarius-Aquarius: A love of independence unites this pair.
Sagittarius -Pisces: There’s an intuitive and mystical connection.
Sagittarius Erogenous Zone: The thighs are very sensitive, tickle the inner thigh or nibble lightly on the skin. Incorporate thigh stroking into foreplay and you will have ignited their fire.
Sex with Sagittarius: Sagittarius likes to explore, same with their sexual encounters. They are the people most likely to have outdoor sex, or risque sex encounters. They are champions of one-night-stands because it feels good and you don’t have to worry about the other person being clingy afterwards! With Sagittarius, anything goes, squeamish and conservative need not apply!
Your sexuality is lively, lusty and adventurous. You love to break new ground, in sexual encounters as in everything else and you are quite willing to go for what you want. Ruled by Jupiter, the grand leader of the gods, you are expansive and all-encompassing in your tastes and interests. You are uninhibited, ready to make love on impulse and not impressed with delaying tactics, or feeble, wimpy attempts to win your favor. The most important issue for you is truth and honesty. You hate intolerance in all its forms (how’s that for logic…?) and you are as open about your desires and sexual needs as you are about everything else. Guilt and shame are foreign to your sexual persona and you do not have much patience with more convoluted souls in these matters. Lusty Sagittarius lays the cards on the table (and that might be a good place to get started…!).
Most people find you disarmingly friendly and you appreciate openness in return. Sex for you is fun and can be a doorway into higher awareness. You are anything but conservative in sexual matters and you are a sucker for the new and exotic, especially things redolent of adventure and far-away places.
Admirers should take note that making plans for travel at the drop of a hat, or intimate accounts of personal experiences in foreign parts will get your juices running. This should be followed immediately by passionate sex before the urge ebbs away…

Sagittarians have a positive outlook on life, are full of enterprise, energy, versatility, adventurousness and eagerness to extend experience beyond the physically familiar. They enjoy traveling and exploration, the more so because their minds are constantly open to new dimensions of thought. They are basically ambitious and optimistic, and continue to be so even when their hopes are dashed. Their strongly idealistic natures can also suffer many disappointments without being affected. They are honorable, honest, trustworthy, truthful, generous and sincere, with a passion for justice. They are usually on the side of the underdog in society they will fight for any cause they believe to be just, and are prepared to be rebellious. They balance loyalty with independence.
Sagittarians are usually modest and are often religious, with a strong sense of morality, though they tend to overemphasize the ethical codes they follow and worship beliefs about God rather than God Himself. This means that, negatively, they regard rigid, unloving, intolerant adherence to ritual and conventional codes as more important than the truths they symbolize or embody. They sometimes pay lip service to religions and political parties in which they have ceased to believe because the outward forms satisfy them, yet they may not hesitate to switch allegiance in politics or change their system of belief if they see personal advantage to themselves in doing so.
They have both profound and widely ranging minds, equipped with foresight and good judgment, and they can be witty conversationalists. They love to initiate new projects (they make excellent researchers) and have an urge to understand conceptions that are new to them. they think rapidly, are intuitive and often original, but are better at adapting than inventing and are at their best when working with colleagues of other types of character that compliment their own. They are strong-willed and good at organizing, a combination that gives them the ability to bring any project they undertake to a s successful conclusion. Their generosity can be balanced by their extreme care at handling their resources.
Sagittarians are ardent, sincere and straightforward in love, normally conventional and in control of their sexual natures. Yet if thwarted, they may easily allow their failure to embitter their whole lives or they may revenge themselves upon the opposite sex by becoming cynically promiscuous. They are more apt then the average to make an uncongenial alliance. If their marriages are successful, they will be faithful spouses and indulgent parents; but their innate restlessness will inspire them to use even the most satisfying manage as a base from which to set out on their travels. They need to fell free and are often faced with the choice of allowing their careers to take over their lives at the expense of the love of their spouse and family.
Sagittarian women are the counterparts of their men; even if they have no career to rival their love, they find it difficult to express affection and may run the risk of being thought frigid. In other personal relationships they are reliable, seldom betraying any trust given to them. They can, however, be impulsively angry and both male and female Sagittarians know how to be outspoken and exactly what expressions will hurt their adversaries most. On the other hand they are magnanimous in forgiving offenses and are responsible when looking after the elderly in the family. Their gifts fit Sagittarians for a number of widely differing professions. They are natural teachers and philosophers with a talent for expounding the moral principles and laws which seem to explain the universe. This gift enables them to be successful churchmen on the one hand and scientists on the other. The law and politics also suit them, as does public service, social administration, public relations and advertising. Travel and exploration naturally appeal to such restless souls and, if their opportunities are limited, they may find something of travel and change of scene in the armed forces or through working as a traveling salesman. Others may make fine musicians and, in the days before automobiles, they were said to be successful at horse trading and all activities, including sporting ones, concerning horses. This has been translated in modern terms into an interest in cars and aircraft – and again with emphasis on the sporting side racing, rallying etc. They are said to make good sports coaches, but their tastes in this direction may lead them into imprudent gambling, though the gambling instinct may be sublimated by carrying it out professionally as a bookmaker.
The vices to which Sagittarians are prone are anger they tend to flare up over trifles; impatience – they want to rush every new project through immediately and demand too much of colleagues who cannot work at the pace they require; and scorn of the inadequacies of others while expecting fulsome recognition of their own efforts. They may in one sense deserve recognition, because in completing a major project they will sacrifice their health and family relationships; in their family’s eyes they may merit condemnation. They can be exacting, domineering and inconsiderate in the work place; and boastful, vulgar and extravagant in their private lives. Their restlessness, if excessive, can jeopardize more than their own stability. some Sagittarians risk becoming playboys, wasting their lives away in frivolous pursuits. Others can develop a moralizing, religious fanaticism or else turn into hypocrites, their inner prudishness disguised by an outward appearance of joviality. Another side of the religiosity which is a danger in Sagittarians is superstition. Sagittarius governs the hips, thighs and sacral area; subjects suffer from ailments of the hips and thighs and are liable to sciatica and rheumatism. An alleged deficiency of silicon in their physiques can give them poor skin, nails and hair. As they are often sportsmen indulging in dangerous pursuits, they are prone to accidents which arise from these the ancient astrologers mention falls from horses and hurts from them and other four-footed beasts. The taking of risks in other sports is a danger to the modern Sagittarian, and he is also liable to accidents with fire and heat.

The Archer, as the constellation is called, commemorates one of the more heroic figures of the zodiac. This mythical figure is Chiron, the kindest and gentlest of the Centaurs. Centaurs were half man, half horse. Although many of them were stupid and violent, Chiron was known for his wisdom, his caring nature and his ability to teach. He was immortal; his father was Kronos and his mother was a daughter of the sea god Oceanus. Chiron tutored the young Greek heroes Achilles and Jason, among others. He was renowned among the Greeks, although he lived by himself in a cave in the countryside.
Heracles shot him with an arrow by accident. The hero had been trying to wipe out the other vicious centaurs which were plaguing the countryside. He had no intention of shooting Chiron, and was extremely remorseful. Although Chiron used his medical skills on the wound, it was incurable. Heracles’ arrows were tipped with the deadly venom of the Lernean Hydra, which killed any victim it touched. But the centaur was an immortal, which changed the situation. Chiron was in terrible agony, but he could not die, although he wanted to. Prometheus the Titan saw his plight and managed to help him. It is not clear what exchange Prometheus and Chiron made, but the Titan made Chiron mortal, and enabled him to leave the Earth and go up to the heavens.
