I am not a huge astrological follower however, the odd times that I do tend to read my horoscopes they always seem to be right on (or maybe I just believe it to be that way). So, I decided to do further research on my zodiac sign to see what the Sagittarius is all about.
Traditional Sagittarius Traits: Optimistic and freedom-loving, Jovial and good-humored, Honest and straightforward, Intellectual and philosophical.
On the dark side.... Blindly optismistic and careless, Irresponsible and superficial, Tactless and restless.
I found this article on the web, written by Susan Miller and it seems to hit the Sagittarius woman right on. It was a good read and I thought I would share...
The Sagittarius Woman
by Susan Miller
The Sagittarius woman is vivacious, funny, self assured, and sophisticated. She probably had an opportunity to travel as a child, and will need to continue to do so throughout her life. She's a woman who needs challenge and intellectual stimulation in all parts of her life.
Sag women are often highly successful at what they set out to do simply because they are so positive they will succeed. Since the sign also rules international communication, they are either known worldwide or deal with matters of global importance. This is not an overly-sensitive sign, and when criticized, they listen carefully to the feedback. She should be careful not to hurt her mate's feelings by being too direct in her comments; Sag often has no idea of how her words effect others. Her man should also be sure to allow her a sense of freedom which is highly important to the Sag woman.
To keep her intellectually stimulated will be a lifelong struggle. This is no dumb bunny, and you may have to struggle to keep up with her. She gets bored easily, so be forewarned!
How To Handle Her
Her sign rules the centaur, half man, half horse, pointing high, toward the sky, which symbolizes her quest to reach the lofty goals she's set. She could be "high maintenance" in that you will have to endure all the highs and lows of her existence, for her motto is nothing ventured, nothing gained. Alas, some things just aren't going too work out, but unlike Cancer, who will try to second-guess themselves, Sag's optimism will buoy her up. She will be on to Plan B in no time. Sometimes this could be exhausting for you, so keep the vitamins handy. Places To Go, Things To Buy Her
If you'd like to get her a fragrance, choose one of the fresh new uni-sex fragrance, for she won't wear anything too conventionally flowery or sweet. She is apt to be a runner or do some equally strenuous sport--can you imagine a marathon runner fussing with Arpege? Not quite.
Her likes her look sporty, preferring pants to skirts and sportswear to anything more formal. Sag generally likes comfortable shoes, the heels not too high (this part in inaccurate, I love my 4" stilettos). It must have been a Sag who started the trend of wearing her sneakers on the way to work. Often Sag women were tomboys as a kid, and as a woman she manages to keep her enviable figure because of all the exercise she gets. Give her clothing which is body revealing, such as a mini skirt and matching top in lycra or spandex. She is one woman who can carry it off in style! Or treat her to ten weeks with a personal trainer and she'll be yours for life.
The Sag woman has no patience with frilly nightgowns but prefers either something plain and natural. What would she most likely wear to bed? A cool, thin, tight white cotton tank top which outlines her breasts, worn with tiny cotton string panties--or nothing at all. She likes men's wear, so you might catch her putting on your button-down shirt with not much else on but a smile. She will do more for your shirt than you could ever imagine.
She will be impressed if you treat your body like a temple too, so try to work out often (I love my men with big muscular arms). Then, you can lounge around in tight bicycle shorts to heat things up. Look at her innocently and say you took a part time job as a messenger and need to wear them for practicality and comfort. (She'd got a good sense of humor.) Since this woman would love a strenuous workout, plan an active, feather-flying pillow fight or try chasing her around the yard. Feeling randy? Toss her into a snow drift. The aim here is to get her pulse rate up then convince her she won't need her morning run with you around.
When it comes to the Sagittarius personality, his/her friendliness may earn a reputation of being overly flirtatious. In fact he/she is generally known as one big flirt, but despite the hankering for a platonic partner with which to roam around and have as much fun as possible, the Sagittarius does also have a more serious side. So, just what is in store on the Sagittarius compatibility horizon and who is this mischievous man or woman most likely to settle down with?
Sagittarius and Aries compatibility Both active and spontaneous types that love to socialize and enjoy the finer things of life makes these two a good match as Aries fun loving but strong nature will nullify any temper tantrums. This is certainly successful and recommended union that will last so long as they make good in the bedroom which will spill over into all other areas!
Sagittarius and Taurus compatibility Two very different personalities with sex being the only real chemistry between these two means they are not destined for a successful union at all!
Sagittarius and Gemini compatibility Opposites in this case definitely attract, but Gemini will criticize Sagittarius in bed, although in all other areas both signs are easy going and undemanding with each other. A union with these two is likely to fizzle as quickly as it starts, but if not there will be lots of effort needed from both of them! Worth the effort? Maybe!
Sagittarius and Cancer compatibility The wanderer meets the home maker. Cancer lives for the future while Sagittarius only for today. Cancer will be jealous of this sign's free spirit, while Sagittarius is likely to be bored by Cancer's dependency. Sexually, Sagittarius is very active, and as a rule Cancer is easily satisfied. Again, this is not a great union.
Sagittarius and Leo compatibility A perfect or ideal match! Both share a love of freedom and adventure, are very outgoing, social and thoroughly enjoy sex. Sagittarius excites and motivates Leo who in turn encourages faithfulness in the flirtatious Sagittarius. A successful marriage is on the cards!
Sagittarius and Virgo compatibility Perhaps these two could manage a week together, but no longer! These two simply don't understand each other and will drive one another crazy! Virgo needs long term while Sagittarius must to be free to roam. Sexually, they are also poles apart with totally different appetites which mean that Sagittarius will feel the need to roam which will be the cause of lots of fights to say the least! Not a good one!
Sagittarius and Libra compatibility Both will be fond of adventure and appeal to each other's intellect and intrigue will attract these two. Sagittarius however likes to roam where Libra prefers stability as well as staying put! If they can overcome this one main issue, a short-term or long-term union is indeed possible.
Sagittarius and Scorpio compatibility Jealous, dominant, secretive and home lover describes Scorpio although Sagittarius will have a suitcase ready because Scorpio's intensity is too difficult to bare! Strong sexual attraction as in a one night's passionate love affair is a definite maybe, but marriage? Definitely NOT!
Sagittarius and Sagittarius compatibility Highly unpredictable although remarkable! They may not last but will have an amazing sex life but cannot possibly last long-term as the worst possible traits in each other will be maximized! They will however remain very good friends.
Sagittarius and Capricorn compatibility Capricorn is cautious and conservative, whereas Sagittarius is carefree and forever roaming which will cause plenty of frustration. Sexually, it's just so-so! Chances are this will be n unsuccessful union or marriage.
Sagittarius and Aquarius compatibility Good combination with an especially innovative sex life as well as intellectually stimulating to one another. They are unpredictable, active, and cheerful, as well as adore being the center of everyone's attention. A flourishing relationship is likely because they can both allow each other the space for freedom that they both require from time to time.
Sagittarius and Pisces compatibility It's all passion and fireworks in the bedroom but that's where it ends! Pisces is too sensitive and emotional for the energetic, optimistic roving Sagittarius. A relationship between these two is almost impossible unless there is a cusp or other placements within the chart making them more compatible. If not, stay away from each other romantically!
