How Sagittarius People Interpret Life

Even if you aren't a Super Sagittarius please read the end of this little thought provoker. It could be worthwhile to a Sagittarius friend (hint, hint!).
How You Approach Life and How You Appear To Other
You appear gentle and soft, and you act rather reserved with
others until you know them well and feel it is safe to be open
with them. You have a strong need for emotional security and a
sense of belonging, and are deeply attached to the past: your
heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places,
etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is known and
safe can be very painful and difficult for you. You tend to
cling and hold on to people, memories, possessions of personal
or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is
very important to you.
You approach life emotionally and subjectively and are
sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents
of feeling in and around you. Instinctive and nonrational, you
are often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for your
actions. Something FEELS right, or it doesn't.
Your emotions and personal loyalties tend to color your
thoughts and opinions. You view life from a very personal
perspective and often cannot mentally detach yourself from your
own personal bias and prejudices. You are apt to be concerned
primarily with how something affects you and those dear and
close to you, rather than with the principle or the broader
social implications. For instance, you may be very patriotic and
feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really
knowing much about the other nations' policies or point of view.
Put simply: if it is good for me and mine, it is good. If it is
not good for me and mine, it is no good.
You are tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of
those you care about, and have a very strong nurturing, motherly
nature (regardless of your gender). You empathize with others
and intuitively sense the feelings and needs of other people.
Compassionate and sympathetic, you are easily moved by others'
pain, and you are often the one others seek out when they need
comfort, reassurance, or help.
Your moods fluctuate and change frequently and you are
sometimes open, sometimes withdrawn emotionally. You communicate
nonverbally and appreciate a person who can pick up subtle cues
and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
You never forget either kindness or unkindness shown to
You are a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves
to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to take
the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. You are an
independent soul, freedom-loving, and often very restless. You
need a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel,
movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine which
offers much in the way of security but little in the way of
space and freedom is odious to you.
To you, life is a journey, an adventure, endlessly
interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult
for you to decide where to focus your attention and efforts. You
probably traveled around and experimented with many different
paths before you settled on a particular career. Or you may go
from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital
interest is gone, you are very quick to move on. Commitment,
discipline, focus, and concentration are not your strong points.
You can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens
and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, you have big dreams, aspirations, and
hopes for the future and are usually pursuing some distant goal.
You have a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures
don't crush your spirit. You always bounce back from
disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. You
have a sporting, playful attitude toward life and are
philosophical about your mistakes. You have the ability to sense
future trends, to see the big picture, and you like to theorize
and speculate. However, attending to all of the details and
practical requirements of implementing your theories is
bothersome to you.
You express yourself in a very open, direct, and
straightforward manner and are often blunt and tactless as well.
Because you do not take yourself too seriously, you may not
realize how deeply your candid statements can wound more
sensitive souls. In fact, though you may not realize it, your
insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others'
feelings is probably one of your worst faults.
You do enjoy friendship, but you need freedom
also and do not do well with a possessive, clinging, or
emotionally demanding partner. You are quite generous yourself,
and heartily dislike pettiness in others. Someone who shares
your ideals, your sense of fun, and your zest for life would be
the right companion for you.
Sagittarius people are generally caring for others. The sad thing is; who is there to care for the carer?
Please take that into consideration.
