November 22 – December 21
Adventuresome, pioneering, philosophical, outgoing, optimistic, risk-taking, honest, and direct. Travel is paramount. Goes for advanced degrees.
As the zodiac’s adventurer, Sagittarius is no stay-at-home shrinking violet. Your sign was born to travel, especially internationally, for the Sagittarius mind is very active and craves new experiences. Practically nothing gives you as much pleasure as the prospect of flying to a foreign country to see and learn about a new culture.
Honesty is very important to Sagittarius, and it follows that you can be disarmingly blunt, but others forgive you for that because it’s clear that you never mean to harm. Besides, there is always a bit of truth in what you say. Your cheerful enthusiasm more than compensates for your frankness—indeed, it makes you, dear fire-sign Sagittarius, a people-magnet at any gathering. Sagittarius is often drawn to partners who have ethnic or religious backgrounds dissimilar to her own. Open and accepting of others is one of your most lovable traits.
Fire – Creative, adventuresome, and interested in all concepts and ideas, you love to debate philosophical and political concepts all night until the golden rays of dawn.
Jupiter, the planet of gifts and luck, optimism and justice.
Royal or midnight blue, turquoise, lapis lazuli, deep rich purple, as well as striped, plaid, and chevron patterns.
Carnations, sweet William, and wild pink.
Tanzanite and turquoise.
Sagittarius is the world traveler, which often shows in your decorating style. Your priority is that your home be comfortable, and since you like to entertain friends in a casual way, you need furniture to be positioned so that conversation can flow easily.
You also aim for a unique look to your décor that reflects your travels, so you will often choose pieces you’ve acquired from the countries you’ve visited to use in your home setting. These artistic items remind you, dear Sagittarius, of happy moments. Your taste reflects your knowledge of other cultures and is eclectic—a specially woven Peruvian blanket, African masks, a bust of a Greek philosopher for your glass desk, various pieces of art, and photographs from your trips might be used judiciously to decorate your home. A warm, Mexican theme might work especially well and appeal to your happy, optimistic outlook.
Sagittarius embodies the Greek ideal of mind-body-spirit, so a gym or workout room would be ideal for you. You are naturally athletic. If you live in a warm climate, such as Los Angeles, Palm Springs, or Arizona, you might have a pool.
Libra may like circles in their prints, but Sagittarius prefers squares and rectangles. Sagittarius also loves plaids, stripes, and chevrons, as well as deep jewel colors, particularly purple or deep turquoise, for the turquoise is associated with your sign.
You will likely gravitate to a simple, pared down style—white china with a beautiful rim. If you were to have a pattern, it is more likely to show up on your charger plate. Your glassware should be paired down too, with beautiful clean modern lines that can be used for both formal and informal gatherings. You will add pattern and interest in the napkins and mats used under the china that you can swap and change as the spirit moves you. You need candles and candlesticks too, but unlike other signs, you would choose pared down designs here too, allowing their metal to echo the metal rim on your beautiful china.

Intellectual and philosophical by nature, as a Sagittarius, you love to read up on a wide variety of topics and debate ideas and concepts. You will tackle any subject, including religion, politics, and even the meaning of life—subjects that most of the other signs would shy away from debating. Sagittarius is a deeply philosophical sign, always ready to tackle the deep questions of life: “Why was I born?” “What could my biggest contribution to others be in my life?” One night, pose a question to your mate-to-be, and be sure that it represents a deep mystery to you. Put a pot of coffee on—you are about to have a fascinating discussion that could easily last until dawn.
The centaur, half man-half horse, that symbolize your sign is seen aiming his arrow high, and indeed, there is no goal too high for you to tackle. By debating with friends, you refine where you stand on a variety of political and philosophical issues. Like the stallion part of the symbol, you are a physically strong and athletic sign. The human side of the centaur points to Sagittarius’ fine intellect. Indeed, as the symbol attests, Sagittarius epitomizes the Greek ideal of strong mind, body, and spirit.
The hips. Sagittarius is an athletic sign and usually has beautiful legs, hips, and thighs. When you wear a simple pair of jeans and a crisp white blouse, you turn heads. You might want to wear a form fitting sheath gown for your wedding to take advantage of your enviable shape.
As a world traveler, you love the exotic flavors you’ve sampled abroad. You wonder why anyone would consume the same foods day after day. You feel there’s a big world out there, and you’re ready to explore it using all your senses. Unusual dishes attract your interest. For your wedding you may incorporate foods and traditions of other cultures you’ve encountered on your travels.
Choose a place neither you nor your partner have visited before—a foreign location that requires a passport. Go to Egypt to see the Pyramids. See India, New Zealand, or go on an African Safari. If you want to enjoy an equestrian sport, go to a dude ranch in Scottsdale, Arizona, or visit Wyoming’s Grand Teton Mountains and see the cowboys herding the cattle. Your sign rules big sky, wide panoramas, and large animals, like horses.
