Whether you’ve got a crush on a Sagittarius or you’re already in a relationship with one, you’re in for a wild time.
Thankfully, the magic of astrology can help you better understand the rollercoaster this star sign will take you on – as well as how to relax and enjoy the ride.
Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the zodiac, a mutable sign (born at the end of a season), a Fire sign (ruled by the bolshy element of fire), and governed by Jupiter (lucky, wild, abundant).
Sagittarius’s astrological symbol is the archer. This reflects the fact that it’s all about the thrill of the chase, the hunt, for these people and they love an adventure or challenge way more than the settling down part of things.
Sagittarians are loving, friendly, smart, freedom-seeking, truthful and wise. They cannot bear to be limited or constrained in any way, including verbally: they say whatever is on their mind, and often what everyone else is thinking anyway, as if they were made for reality TV.
Those born under the sign are drawn to the open road, the uncharted path, the philosophical stance, the possibility of danger, the thrills and adventure of not making plans and just seeing where the day takes you.

Sagittarius personality traits
Sagittarians are lovable and adorable, hence how they get away with their unfiltered mouth.
They are immediately friendly, warm and interested in other people and enjoy conversing about anything and everything. They are worldly and smart, they enjoy learning about different cultures and theories. They are deep thinkers (despite their clown-y exterior, they are famously clumsy) and enjoy philosophical debates.
Ruled by Jupiter, the planet of abundance, good fortune and expansion, they have a knack of getting lucky. Sagittarians are lucky people, always landing on their feet no matter what crazy shenanigans they’ve gotten into – they know so many people that luck is never far away. They are like the zodiac’s Tigger. Bouncy.
A mutable sign, they are adaptable, flexible and willing to go with the flow and come off pretty laidback. They get around to doing things when it suits them, and run on their own clock. They are hard to pin down because they live spontaneously, experience total FOMO 24/7, and can’t bear rules.
Sagittarius’ achilles heel in love is the FOMO thing. They are naturally passionate, sexy and warm so they attract a lot of attention and it can be hard to resist the charms of others, even when they’re in love themselves already. They can be devils for flirting when they really shouldn’t.
What do Sagittarius’ like?
- Meeting new people
- Praise and applause
- Theme parks
- Trekking without a map/guide
- Exploring new cultures
- Going out and staying out
- Wild nights
- Being with friends
- Pets, horses, dogs… all animals actually (they have an affinity with animals, they’re very animalistic themselves in a way)
- Going with the flow
- Easy and comfortable clothes and surroundings
- Casual days
- Being outdoors
- Driving on the open road,
- Learning new things
- Getting things off their chest.
Deal breakers for a Sagittarius
Restriction is a total no for the Sagittarius soul.
They cannot, and will not, abide being told what to do, who with, where and when. They don’t need a mother/boss/lawmaker, they want a partner in crime who is willing to have a go at anything, anytime.
If this isn’t you (and it’s not that many of us!) then you will come a cropper.
Sagittarius love language
Sagittarians are ruled by Fire so they certainly act passionately, seek PDAs, love sex, want to be intimate and connected with the object of their affection, and enjoy flirting and making conquests.
You might feel totally swept off your feet (until something new and shiny catches their eye and they’re off… but you sort of have to let them).
They will say outrageous things to you too, and then apologise and you’ll forgive because they are genuinely sad to see you’re sad.
They make you laugh. You miss their big, buzzing presence when they’re not around.
Sagittarius’ compatible signs for love, sex, and romance
Other Fire signs – so fellow Sagittarians, as well as Aries and Leo. This crowd are all super hot potatoes, passionate and lively, full of va va voom.
Their opposite sign (the sign they’re magnetised by in love) is Gemini. This pair are both total wildcats so this relationship can end up anyplace really; A&E, jail, Vegas… who knows.
What you can expect from a relationship with a Sagittarius
You can expect the unexpected! A lively, fun, passionate and youthful partner who’s always up for a good time, is interested in you and your thoughts and life, and wants to share new experiences with you.
The downsides are that you might not see them for a few days on the trot when they’re absorbed in something new, and you might need to be the one who organises the admin and bills as they are rubbish at all that.
If you can work out a fair routine, though, then you’re guaranteed an optimistic, loving, funny and smart life partner who ensures you enjoy every day (mostly).
