In astrology, Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter—the gigantic planet that governs luck, abundance, and expansion. Boasting the motto “go big or go home,” Jupiter is basically the patron saint of being extra…and Sagittarius is delighted to oblige. Whether racing up Mount Kilimanjaro, enrolling in (yet another) virtual workshop, or cracking jokes at a local open mic night, Sagittarius is all about confidence and limitless positivity—I mean, what’s the worst that could happen? All these years later, the best acronym to describe Sagittarius’s signature philosophy is still YOLO.

It’s easy to get swept up in the wild, whirlwind frenzy that defines this sign’s experience—but it’s important to remember that Sagittarius’s spirit is like a tornado: It’s a powerful force that serves a decent amount of chaos. You see, Sagittarians aren’t the best at linking “actions” with “consequences.” Generally speaking, these archers would prefer to throw spaghetti at the wall than spend hours performing due diligence and contemplating strategy. When it comes to partnership, it’s important to remember that Sagittarius will pursue its passion with all their might…until they lose interest. It’s not that this sign wants to break hearts, it’s just that they don’t realize that a shotgun wedding at Las Vegas’s Elvis Chapel is actually the same type of marriage that means lifelong commitment. I mean, how could those possibly be the same things?!

It’s not that Sagittarius doesn’t want partnership: This fiery archer would love to team up with a copilot! But at the beginning of a romance, it may be hard to tell the difference between true love and a star-crossed booty call—after all, Sagittarius begins every connection with passionate infatuation. So the best way to tell what Sagittarius is seeking is to ask. Unlike other signs who may use this dialogue as a sort of impromptu lie detector test (hi, Scorpio, I’m looking at you), Sagittarius is extremely straightforward and deeply appreciates the honest candor. They’ll be sure to tell you exactly what’s on their mind (even if it hurts your feelings).


So, you married your Sagittarius crush in an unexpected haze. Mazel tov! Now what? Well, it’s important to remember that Sagittarius—the last fire sign of the zodiac—has the energy of a wildfire: blazing, expansive, and occasionally dangerous. Sagittarius is fiercely independent, and when coupled…well, that doesn’t really change. Although you may begin accompanying your Sagittarius partner on their adventures, Sagittarius will still need to have solo experiences. This isn’t because the fiery archer wants to exclude you—it’s actually because they want to tell you about their journey after the fact.

Sagittarius has the extraordinary ability to transform even the most mundane pursuit (say, a quick trip to the corner store) into a full-blown adventure. For this sign, virtually everything has the ability to become an epic, and since Sagittarius is a natural storyteller, they delight at the opportunity to entertain their beloved through riveting narratives. This is, of course, part of what makes Sagittarius such an effortless comedian—it’s no wonder that Ben Stiller, Sarah Silverman, Richard Pryor, and Chrissy Teigen were all born under this zodiac sign. At the end of the day, Sagittarius’s dynamic witticism pairs perfectly with their taste for adventure: When they have a story to tell, you’re definitely going to want to listen!

Another thing to keep in mind is that as a mutable sign, Sagittarius is extremely adaptable. This archer’s lifestyle is almost nomadic: They’re always down to explore a new philosophy, switch perspectives, or travel to uncharted places. If you ever need to infuse some new energy into your dynamic, don’t be afraid to introduce a little exploration! After all, in ancient mythology, Sagittarius was depicted as a centaur, so there’s nothing this fire sign loves more than saddling up for an adventure.


Have you ever been stranded in the Mojave Desert with a twisted ankle and a limited supply of water? Lost at sea in a rowboat with only a handkerchief and a pack of chewing gum? Escaped an avalanche by using a garbage lid as a sled? Well, Sagittarius has—and when you link up with this adrenaline junkie, you will too!

Life with a Sagittarius is like sitting in the passenger seat of Indiana Jones’s wrangler: exciting, bumpy, and unpredictable. Yes, “danger” is Sagittarius’s middle name, so don’t be surprised if your wildfire lover finds ways to raise the stakes in your partnership, making the bond itself a bit risky. That’s right, Sagittarius cannot seem to get enough of outdoor sex!

Because Sagittarius is so enthralled by their own pursuits, it’s not always easy to get this archer’s attention. Sagittarius is actually turned on by people who take initiative, so don’t be afraid to be loud, stomp your feet, or even blow a whistle to let them know you’re interested. Whatever you do, just don’t try to tell them what to do: There’s nothing this fire sign despises more than feeling stifled. Of course, there’s a fine line between “confinement” and “boundaries”—the latter isn’t necessarily a bad thing. When linking up with a Sagittarius, my recommendation is to openly discuss your wants and needs from the beginning and establish some ground rules (for instance, no matter where Sagittarius is on the map, they should always plan to send you a “goodnight” text) so that there are no questions down the line.


So you think you can handle off-roading with a Sagittarius? Fellow fire signs—Aries and Leo—are definitely down. Aries admires Sagittarius’s dynamic spontaneity, while Leo is smitten by Sagittarius’s unparalleled sense of humor. However, there may be some issues when Sagittarius links with Virgo and Pisces. Pragmatic Virgo is unsure of Sagittarius’s reckless behavior, and empathetic Pisces sees Sagittarius’s physical distance as an emotional detachment. When partnered, these signs must be sure to communicate (and honor) each other’s differences!
