Sagittarius 101

Learn the basics of the sign Sagittarius


Sagittarius is the free-spirited, bohemian gypsy of the zodiac. Don't try to contain this firey, mutable sign—it doesn’t like to be contained and will always want to be off on a new adventure. Sagittarius has places to see and explore, and there is always something else to try, another thing to explore, another relationship to have. Once Sag reaches a goal it can be off chasing another and can find it hard to stick to just one career path. Discovering new ideas in spirituality, philosophy and religion make Sag a wise teacher.
