1. Spontaneous

Sagittarius loves (actually, needs) to try new things and have new experiences. To be able to do this, they are incredibly spontaneous. If you are looking for someone to take a last-minute road trip with you, Sagittarius may be the one to call. Boredom isn’t something that Sagittarius is comfortable with, so they are usually ready to jump at any opportunity to get out of routine or shake up their life.

2. Easy-Going

Because of its mutable modality, Sagittarius is a very laid-back sign. This sign actually appreciates change and doesn’t resist it. This helps give Sagittarius its easy-going personality. Mutable signs are social chameleons who can get along with nearly everyone because they are able to adjust so easily. They “go with the flow” and adapt to whomever they are spending time with.

3. Warm

Fire signs, like Sagittarius, radiate warmth and life to those around them. Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius, doubles down on this good-natured warmth making it a consistently pleasant sign to spend time with. This sign has the ability to make whomever they are with feel revitalized and great about themselves.

4. Optimistic

Sagittarius wears rose-colored glasses. It assumes the best about others and also about life. For Sagittarius, there is no reason to worry as it thinks that everything will naturally work out for the best. This is another trait that is a benefit of Jupiter’s influence. If you need someone to reassure you that everything is going to be ok, Sagittarius is the sign you are looking for.

5. Independent

This is a sign that would never be described as “needy” or “clingy.” On the contrary, Sagittarius values its personal freedom to explore and come and go as it pleases. Sagittarius is a self-reliant sign that will look within, not rely on others, to grow and meet its needs.

6. Enthusiastic

The combination of the fire element and Jupiter’s influence makes for a sign that is incredibly zealous and exuberant about life. For Sagittarius, experiencing all that life has to offer is paramount and it is a sign that is excited about all of the possibilities that lay before it. Its enthusiasm is contagious and it has the potential to lift the spirits of and excite those that it spends time with.

7. Funny

A healthy and balanced Sagittarius will never take itself or life too seriously. Sagittarius comes equipped with a great sense of humor. Making the people around them smile is a great quality that Sagittarius has to offer. Being playful may not seem like that important of a trait, but being able to lighten the mood and lift spirits is a gift that can enhance the lives of others.

8. Adventurous

Sagittarius wants to explore what the world has to offer and an adventurous spirit allows it to seek out the new experiences it requires. This sign is associated with traveling the globe or traversing the world of ideas and philosophies through learning. Sagittarius isn’t content to sit and wonder what is on the other side of that mountain or what it may feel like to try something different, it wants to go find out for itself.

9. Risk Taking

This trait goes hand-in-hand with seeking adventure and is a quality that is inspired by the fire element. Being able to take risks isn’t something everyone is comfortable with, but it comes naturally to Sagittarius. It is a sign that may jump headfirst into a situation and is happy to throw caution to the wind. It is optimistic, after all, that everything will work out for the best!

10. Resilient

When seeking adventure and taking risks, there are naturally going to be times when one falls on their face or things don’t turn out as planned. Luckily for Sagittarius, it is a pretty unshakable sign. Failing for Sagittarius isn’t generally a license to run back to safety and lick its wounds. Instead, this sign is capable of picking itself up and trying again, largely unfazed.

11. Unshakable Faith

Jupiter is a planet of faith and it lends Sagittarius an unwavering sense of trust that there is a larger purpose for everything and everyone. Sagittarius is continuously searching for the meaning of life. To do this, it has to believe in something. Finding this “something” is what beckons Sagittarius to seek new experiences and what it will search for its entire life.

12. Lucky

One other quality that Jupiter offers to Sagittarius is good fortune. If Sagittarius is working toward fulfilling its soul’s purpose of staying open-minded and seeking more meaning in life, Jupiter seems to tip the scales in Sagittarius’ favor and this sign always seems to land on its feet.

13. Idealistic

Because of the importance that faith plays in the life of Sagittarius, its morals and incredibly important. This is a sign that will act within the guidelines of its principles and values, even to its own detriment. Sagittarius is idealistic and wants its behavior to match its ideals.

14. Open-Minded

A healthy Sagittarius is interested in the ideas of those who see the world differently than they do. It is a sign that is curious about other cultures, philosophies, and religions, not turned off by them. The more Sagittarius travels, the more its mind can expand its inclusive nature.

15. Confident

The fire element offers all three of its signs a healthy dose of confidence, and Sagittarius is no exception. It not only has faith in the world and humanity, but it has faith in itself. This confidence can inspire others to follow Sagittarius, and it can also influence others to have more confidence in themselves, as well.
