Sagittarius: Nov. 22 - Dec. 21

A Sagittarius Relationship

If you're in a Sagittarius relationship, you are building a relationship with someone who is clever, idealistic and completely free of malicious intentions. At the same time, you might find yourself learning to practice forgiveness on a regular basis.

Sagittarians are known for blurting out the wrong thing to say at the wrong time in the wrong circumstances.

Their gaffes take some getting used to, but once you know them, it's easy to forgive these blunders, because they are some of the most cheerful and entertaining people around, and friendship is natural and easy for them.

Generous and gregarious

You'll rarely meet a Sagittarian skinflint; they tend to be generous souls who easily open their hearts to others.

Many Sagittarians add to their own families through adoption, or take care of aging relatives and pets (and in laws or whoever). They love being social and are terrific entertainers; many will surprise you with that quality of theirs until you get to know them.

They might become distracted from their important goals easily, and often have a problem with mislaying things, which may seem contradictory, because anyone who knows a Sagittarian is fascinated by their prodigious memories.

Sagittarius relationships; the down side

Even though some of them are likely to keep their risk-positive natures under control, Sagittarians can be prone to gambling, speculation and even sports in which they put themselves at risk.

Sagittarians make excellent financial analysts and managers for other people, but are not so good at taking care of their own. Unless they have a professional interest in this area, they can be carried away by the desire to beat the odds, and tend to believe in luck more than any other sign.

Even the most conscientious of them will alter their route home on occasion to pick up a lottery ticket. It's a good idea, if you have a Sagittarius friend, to learn a little about how to help them keep their tempers in check.

They also have a tendency to overdo it as far as food and drink are concerned, but this is something that friends tend to help with, because they are careful not to overdo it when they need to entertain.

Sagittarius relationships; the bright side

Most Jupiter people have a strong spiritual (not necessarily in the conventional sense) streak, and if your Sagittarian doesn't, you can be sure that they adhere to very high ideals in philosophy or law, which they tend to know very well.

They are driven, and hold themselves to very high standards; they will often expect others to live up to them as well.

Although they tend to be a little clumsy, when they are focused on entertaining guests or being entertained by friends, they have a way of pulling themselves together, because those are the times that they are in their element.

They may seem a little naive, but are also very courageous, and refuse to let anything stop them in the pursuit of their goals.

If you're fond of the allure of faraway places, or the art of travel itself, you couldn't find a better friend than a Sagittarian; they'll travel thousands of miles to come for a visit if they can, or gladly accept you as a partner with whom they can visit the exotic and mysterious locales they dream of.

Full of fun and adventure, Sagittarians make great friends, if you can get past their innocent, clumsy and blunt faux-pas.
