Here are the three main characteristics of a Sagittarius:

Whether this sign belongs to you or not, this information will help you understand this fiery sign a little better.
 

1. Sagittarius Is A Forward Thinker

Sagittarius doesn’t waste a single moment thinking about the past. Her approach to life is all about the future, how she’ll get there, and what fascinating people and places she’ll encounter along the way. Jupiter, the planet of abundance and goodwill, rules her sign. This means she has an insatiable hunger for knowledge and growth.
 
This also makes them open-minded and accepting of those around them. She’ll listen attentively to everyone’s perspective, and gather that information to form her own. This makes Sagittarius a dynamic, versatile individual in whatever path in life they wander down.
 
 

2. Sagittarius Always Speaks Her Mind

Trustworthy Sagittarius always has your best interest in mind, and she’s confident enough to lay down the truth. You want her levelheaded voice of truth near you at all times, especially if you’re in en emotional rut.
 
She’s a natural conversationalist and entertainer, and will instinctively know exactly what to say and do to bring the wind back to your sails. Because of her genuine, friendly nature, many people find it easy to open up to Sagittarius.
 
Forever an optimist peering through rosy, heart-shaped frames, Sagittarius can easily spin something negative into a positive learning experience that you’ll look back on with gratitude.
 
When it comes to relationships, she’s not interested in playing games. Fleeting romances, though? Bring it on! Sagittarius loves the thrill of the chase. In a long-term partner, she seeks someone who will excite and energize her. They must be up for spontaneous adventures, and willing to give her the space she needs to let her spirit roam free.
 
 

3. Sagittarius Craves Adventure

Her constant longing to explore and learn about the world around her means Sagittarius always has her bags packed and ready to go. She embraces change and welcomes last-minute plans if it means taking her somewhere new and unexpected. And when it does, she won’t let anything or anyone stand in the way of her experiences.
 
She’s the type to teach herself Thai and then, before you know it, she’s geo-tagged at a lavish AirBnB infinity pool in Phuket on Instagram. And she’ll be soul-searching there for the next few months – that’s just how this wild child rolls.
