I recently read an article on MSN about the qualities of a Sagittarius and must say that I am flattered and a lot of it really did hit home. Here are some highlights (I underlined everything that feels like "me"):
Inquisitive and energetic, the Sagittarian is the traveler of the zodiac. Their philosophical, broad-minded approach to life motivates them to wander far and wide in the search for the meaning of life. Extroverted, optimistic and enthusiastic, it can be almost impossible to keep the Sagittarian down. They love change. In fact, change is essential for this sign to feel their best
Friends and Family
Whether it's stimulating conversation, or a hike through the mountains, you can expect this sign to be surrounded by friends. They're a ton of fun, and downright wacky at times. They love to laugh and to get everyone around them going. Sagittarians make friends from around the globe, enjoying the various takes on life and culture. They're generous and are not ones to hold a grudge. Anyone who can sit a spell and talk about the deeper things in life will suit a Sagittarian just fine. They make friends easily and remain steadfast through the years. When it comes to family, the Sagittarian is dedicated and willing to do just about anything. Freedom and independence are extremely important for this outgoing sign. Providing these traits aren't infringed upon, all relationships go well.
Career and Money
"Visualization" is the keyword for the Sagittarian. When this sign sees something as possible in their minds, they will go to great lengths to rally enough people to make it happen. Straightforward, they don't usually mince words about what they want, and they seem to know exactly what needs to be said in a given situation. They make excellent salespeople, and it's even better when this involves travel. When the Sagittarian gets a sense of the big picture, they'll work night and day to reach a goal.
A variety of tasks and a dynamic atmosphere favor the Sagittarian. Careers such as travel agent, photographer, explorer, artist, realtors, ambassador, and import/export trader all suit this free spirited personality.
Fun-loving Sagittarians enjoy making - and spending - money. Considered the luckiest of the zodiac, they don't worry too much about where the next buck is coming from. Sagittarians are risk takers and highly optimistic, trusting in the universe to provide what is needed. Money management tasks will bore the Sagittarian to tears, so getting a bookkeeper or accountant is the best plan in order to stay on top of what's coming and going
Love and Sex
This fiery sign is playful and loves to have fun with their lovers. Passionate, expressive, and willing to try just about anything, partners who are equally outgoing are best suited to the Sagittarian. There's a fine line between sex and love for this sign. Their love of change and variety can bring a lot of different faces to the bedroom. But when it comes to love, that's an entirely different thing. Once taken, the Sagittarian is loyal, true-blue, and devoted. Mates for this sign need to be intellectual, sensitive, and expressive for the best results. As the key phrase for this sign is "I understand," having a good sense of how their partner thinks is quite important.
