The Sun in Sagittarius

Pack your bags for Sagittarius season!

The sun in Sagittarius ignites our sense of adventure and wanderlust. While the first six signs of the zodiac are about self-exploration, understanding, and expression, when the sun enters Sagittarius, it signals a focus shift to the world around us. Sagittarius season brings a deep yearning to learn (especially about philosophy, religion, and other cultures) and explore. The world is your playground! It can be difficult to establish or maintain a routine during this time, but that's okay. Sometimes it can be good not to be pinned down. In Sagittarius season, relationships that hold on too tightly or don't involve mutual growth and learning are quickly dismissed.

Sun in Sagittarius Personality

"Born to run" perfectly characterizes Sagittarian culture. Freedom is the name of the game—of speech, of thought, to roam. For the zodiac's adventurer, true education is experiential. Unlike their sister sign, Gemini, they'll never be satisfied with simply reading about a place—they must visit it themselves, see the sights, and mingle with the people. They're an unsettled type, so one of these former vacation spots may become their future home after they inevitably bore of their current one.

Regardless of whether their travels pan out as expected, Centaurs are rarely disheartened. A certain open-mindedness aids them in their adventures (of which there will be many). According to the Sagittarius ethos, adventure can be found as far as the eye can see, so it's hardly a bother if their car breaks down or they lose their luggage in the process. After all, optimism sustains the Sagittarian spirit.

Positive Traits

Luck be a Sagittarius. Blessed by Jupiter, Sagittarians boast an uncanny ability to dodge or quickly rebound from misfortune. Their options are many, and they're willing to try every single one until they find something that works. Like their ruling planet, these folks are perpetually in search of the bigger and the better—and often find it, for a moment at least.

Much like their sister, Gemini, they have an insatiable thirst for knowledge, though they'd rather live it than read about it. From this knowledge, they try to form a fair and moral mode de vie.

Negative Traits

Equipped with tremendous experience and knowledge, Sagittarians tend to assume their way is the only one. Though they fancy themselves open minded, Archers can be very my-way-or-the-highway where their philosophies are concerned. This sign seems to support freedom of thought until it clashes with something they personally believe to be true.

Therefore, whilst attempting to express their truths, they may come across as moralizing or condescending. Though they're often called the teachers of the zodiac, they might be better described as pontificators at their worst. As a ceaseless explorer, the Centaur has been known to trot away when situations become too emotionally involved or "boring."


Brash and big-mouthed, Sagittarius suns can be a bit of a handful. Given that Jupiter is their ruling planet, these natives tend to overstep boundaries in their quest for knowledge. They mean well, but much like a child, they bore easily and tend towards selfishness.

As a result, these folks are not ones to depend upon for day-to-day problems. Those things are simply too small-sighted for the Archer whose bow is pointed high in the sky. They aspire to drink fully from the chalice of worldly experience. Though Sagittarius isn't necessarily religious, their faith in the boundlessness of the world is absolute.
