The Sun in Sagittarius nature is one of expansion, and their eyes are often optimistically fixed on a future goal. They’re global citizens, here to sample many tastes and cultures, which can keep them constantly on the move. A bored “Sadge” is a rare sight, since they’ll break free of any relationship or situation that starts to squash their legendary enthusiasm.
The Sagittarius often has a bright, cheerful demeanor that can be disarming. It’s an uncomplicated style that invites you to drop your defenses, too, and just “be.” This makes for a fun friend that knows all the best ethnic restaurants and can stay out ‘til the cows come home.
They’re known for spontaneous philosophical ramblings and don’t seem to get bogged down in emotional complexities. Those that love them may wish for more depth, more feeling, and there are times when they are shockingly blunt. It’s unnerving to be the target of a direct hit, but it is easily forgiven if accepted as just another fiery arrow of Sagittarian truth.
The same mind that shows tactlessness can be a beacon of light in confusing times. Leave it to a Sagittarius to step into a messy tangle and sum up the situation with blinding clarity. They’ll be willing to say the truth when all others hide in confusion. This makes them invaluable friends that can guide you back to the clear path when you need honesty rather than enablers.
There’s a notable physicality to the Sun in Sagittarius that gets them involved in vigorous athletics and bold travel-adventures. They bring this flexibility to the bedroom and this lusty, anything-goes attitude can cause them to take a walk on the wild side. The ideal partner for the “Sadge” is above all a friend, and a partner in life’s great adventure who understands the needs of a true free spirit.
