Represented by The Centaur, a fierce archer who is half man and half horse, Sagittarius is a straight shooter who isn’t afraid to speak his mind. He gallops towards anything life throws at him with courage and excitement.

This can be perceived as aggressive or impatient to those who prefer a more laid-back approach to life, but Sagittarius knows that extreme action gets extreme outcomes. 

Ruled by Jupiter, the planet of abundance, Sagittarius wants a limitless kind of lifestyle.

He honors his ruling planet by refusing to adhere to restrictions on his freedom. He lives for freedom and openness, and will likely run for the hills if he senses you're trying to box him in or hold him down. His innate optimism brings him luck and fortune that allows him to live a relatively carefree life at times.  

Brad Pitt, Bruce Lee, Jamie Foxx, and Jay-Z are just some of the daring, famous faces born under this sign.

The Sagittarius man in your life may not have shown all of these colors ye,t but there are certain aspects of life that bring out different characteristics in every Sagittarius. 

Sagittarius Man in Love

Sagittarius men have a magnetic attractiveness that has people falling at their feet.

Not ones to sacrifice their independence, this archer loves the hunt more than he loves catching a love interest. Often, he’ll spend more time obsessing over the ones that got away rather than someone who is still invested. 

That said, Sagittarius has a lot of love to give, and is always willing to be open and loving with someone so long as the relationship offers plenty of adventure, independence, and escape.

If you’re dating a Sagittarius man, make sure he's honest with his intentions before you catch feelings in what he only intended to be a meaningless fling.

Sagittarius Man Best and Worst Love Matches

Due to their unique approach to love, Sagittarius make great partners for fellow Sagittarius. He's upfront and can forget about arguments just as quickly as they arise.

Another compatible Sagittarius match is the Air sign, Aquarius. Both equally independent and free-spirited, these signs know when to give each other space and when to bond over deep conversations.

Virgo struggles to keep up with Sagittarius, however, preferring a more organized, linear life than what an adventurous Sagittarius can offer.

Sagittarius Man and Family

Fatherhood doesn’t always come naturally to this independent trailblazer.

Loving to fend for himself and thrive in the great outdoors, domestic duties feel like an oppressive weight on Sagittarius. He loves to travel and see the world, so home is sometimes little more than a pit stop to store his belongings and fuel him for his next adventure.

If he does eventually decide to settle down, Sagittarius will be the kind of dad who’s always taking his kids on crazy camping trips and spontaneous hikes. He loves to live amongst nature, so though the hustle and bustle of the city can excite him in his younger years, he’s likely to want to settle in the countryside as life slows down.

Sagittarius Man and Career

A desk job in a compact gray cubicle simply won’t cut it for impatient, ambitious Sagittarius. His natural enthusiasm means he will devote himself wholeheartedly to his career, but only if it serves him.

Sagittarius needs to feel that his work is fulfilling. He needs his passion and intellect to be valued. If he feels his creativity or drive is being stifled, he’ll likely look for an alternative career. 

Outdoorsy Sagittarius loves to work on the go in sports or get creative as a nature photographer. He loves to work with animals, particularly horses, as his symbolism suggests.

As a courageous man, he also thrives on the chance to make a change so would excel as an investigator, a journalist, or lawyer.

Sagittarius Man and Spirituality

Despising dishonesty and betrayal, Sagittarius has a strong moral compass that often finds its roots in their spiritual beliefs.

Often searching for what is “right,” Sagittarius may study a variety of religions and spiritual faiths in order to find something that best aligns with his values. Inquisitive and searching, Sagittarius is willing to meditate, fast, praise, and pray to connect with spiritual guides.

But rule-breaker Sagittarius is unlikely to devote their whole life to any one organized religion, instead drawing from various spiritual systems. 

Sagittarius Man and Conflict

Generally, these cheerful exuberant men aren’t likely to deeply offend anyone, but since we all have our bad days, even Sagittarius can make enemies at times.

Honest and outspoken, this Fire sign can be tactless at times. Speaking his mind without thinking, the Sagittarius man will tell you exactly how it is without caring about how it makes you feel. If you don’t have a thick skin, you might find it difficult to take his brutal honesty. 

Since his mind is always in flight, Sagittarius might forget to consider how you feel at times. He can be impulsive and always wants to do things his way.

His extreme need for independence can come across as self-centered if he’s refusing to bend to your needs even a little. Worst of all, sometimes these little frustrations can create big reactions in Sagittarius.

Hot-headed and short-tempered, he’s likely to fly off the handle quickly with no warning. That said, he will calm down just as quickly and is always willing to listen to home truths so he can correct his behavior.
