Sagittarius Personality: A Place Where Adventure Lives and Rebellion Resides
Sagittarius are the type of people who will call you out of the blue to go on a spontaneous road trip, they will pick up stray kittens and nurse them back to health, and when they hug you, it will always be deep, warm, and sincere. These kind and brave souls burn bright, and their unapologetic nature is just what this world needs.
Recently, the death of Sinead O'Connor shocked the world. Her blazing Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21) light has gone out, and many feel they have lost an artist who illuminated their lives. Her music connected with people, and she was brave, outspoken, kind, and unafraid to experiment; O'Connor was a true archer through and through.
She was one of the many Sagittarius who brought and are bringing their passion, fire, and courage to the world. These rabble-rousers and adventurers with a heart of gold remain in our hearts.
Let's learn more about the fiery Sagittarius personality.

Adventurers & Explorers
Sagittarius are restless creatures urged to explore, create and take in everything this massive, beautiful life offers. Their appetite is unquenchable. You may find them traveling the world, learning to dive, or engaging in a creative pursuit.
These independent and freedom-loving archers do not like to be locked down. So if you are developing feelings for this sign, you better ensure that you are not the settling down type, as they will run a mile away. Sagittarius can be a commitment-phobe. But, if their partner leaves them to explore and be independent, they will have a caring, compassionate, passionate, and exciting lover.
While their positive demeanor assumes otherwise, these Sags also like to explore the intellectual realm. They are philosophers and enjoy discovering the meaning of life just as much as they enjoy exploring it physically.

Their adaptable nature means they will always be open to new experiences and able to learn without pretense or judgment.
Kind, Compassionate, and Emotionally Intelligent
If you have a Sagittarius friend, they will be there for you no matter what. Their ability to make anyone laugh will alleviate some of the pain you may be going through, and you will feel their genuine compassion toward you.
They are emotionally intelligent, know how to help others without being told, and do their best to ensure their friends and family are contented.

Sagittarius' massive hearts also extend toward animals. Their compassion for the animal world means some are vegetarians or vegans. These archers will likely try to volunteer at the animal shelter. They can't help but collect stray cats...much to their possible partner's constant frustration.
Outspoken and Not Afraid to Tell the Truth
One area where Sagittarius may lack emotional intelligence is their blunt use of the truth. They have zero intention of hurting anyone, but since they value honesty so highly, this blinds them to the hurt it may cause. They view their sometimes tactless nature as a form of compassion. As the astrologer Linda Goodman expressed :
"What is on the archer's mind and heart is almost instantly on his lips. He's as frank and earnest as a six-year-old. You can take that old advice, 'If you want the truth, go to a child,' and switch it to 'If you want the truth, go to a Sagiittarian.'"

Their frankness often extends to causes they are passionate about. These sun signs are not afraid to speak truth to power and stand up for what is right even if others may fear it. They may earn a reputation as a rebel.
Their natural bravery, or sometimes recklessness, is why they can take these leaps. However, they should sometimes take a step back and consider the consequences of their tendency to throw caution to the wind without a second thought.

Sociable and Popular
Sagittarius' upbeat, contagious, warm, and dynamic personality draws people in. They also have a knack for making people laugh and will leave everyone in stitches by the end of a party or event.
They are adaptable and know how to connect with anyone. People can feel that this sun sign genuinely cares. So, beyond the ball of sunshine that they are, there is the added benefit of warmth that exudes from them that is palpable to anyone.

We can all learn something from this star sign. From learning to see the beauty in the world and exploring it, actively caring about those around us, learning the value of the truth, and building up the courage to speak it no matter what. As O'Connor said, "I'm proud to be a troublemaker."
