The Sagittarius woman is fun, fearless and full of life! Read on to learn more about these beguiling beauties.
The Sagittarius Woman: General Characteristics
To fully understand a Sagittarius woman, one needs to understand the role of Sagittarius in the zodiac. It's no accident that Sagittarius comes after the penetrating and probing personality of Scorpio and before the contracting nature of Capricorn. Ruled by Jupiter, the key world that describes Sagittarius is "expansion". This is important because everything a Sagittarius woman does carries that overture and seems larger than life. Here are some general characteristics.
Enthusiastic and Happy
Those with the sun sign Sagittarius often appear enthusiastic and happy; that's because they usually are. Unless otherwise afflicted in the chart, these friendly ladies tend to be happy to meet, greet and interact with others on a social level. They are also usually full of "get up and go" energy; this makes them a true joy to be around and the center of any party! For the most part, no scheme is too grand, and no plan is too large for these intelligent ladies to tackle.
It's also a good thing that these ladies are so joyous because it helps to take some of the sting off of their very honest, often blunt, reactions to the world around them! These women will gladly tell you if a dress is too tight, if you should take that job or if you're mate is running around on you. Just one word to the wise, though. If you are overly sensitive and don't really want to know the truth, don't ask lady Sagittarius for her opinion! Save your feelings and turn to another, more tactful sign instead!
A Need for Adventure
There is also an ever present need for adventure and a certain degree of wanderlust to these ladies. Feeling hemmed in or stifled, whether through a situation or a relationship, is not the ideal situation for these women.
In fact, feeling closed in can have a debilitating effect on your personality and the side effects may show up in the physical body as well (as various ailments, particularly in the legs and thighs). If flying off to distant locals is not an option, these women should do their best to stay physically active, and that will help tremendously.
Sagittarius and Relationships
Marriage and committed relationships are a giant step for the Sagittarius woman, and many women of this sign try to wait as long as possible before tying the knot. This is true even if the Sag in question is deeply in love with her betrothed, but it's actually a good thing because it allows her to find out her true identity. Knowing who she is and which values to subscribe to is a very important process for Sagittarius.
Sagittarius rules the ninth house of the zodiac; the house of higher learning and culture. Often, Sagittarians will find themselves attracted to people from different backgrounds or ethnicities. Instead of seeing these differences as a negative, Sagittarius truly sees it as a positive; they are not called the "global citizen" for nothing!
Even if eventual partners are of a similar background, they will have to exhibit high morals and have personal integrity; characteristics that Sagittarius truly values. They are attracted to partners that have sophisticated tastes and religious tolerance. If these partners are not ethnically tolerate, it can leave a sinking feeling in lady Sag's stomach.
Best Matches for Sagittarius
Sagittarian women do best with those that are fire signs (Aries, Leo and fellow Sagittarius) and air signs (Aquarius, Gemini and Libra). This is not to say that they cannot be paired with any other sign, but based strictly on the Sun signs, fire and air are the best matches. However, this is not a hard and fast rule, and the individual charts of both people need to be taken into account in order to determine whether or not it will be a successful romantic pairing.
