Key Characteristics

Dominant  Signs, Planetsand Houses are calculated by a number of factors present in one's Natal Chart.

Sagittarius Dominant individuals are full of life and possess a zest for new experiences and ideas. They have an almost infectious enthusiasm and an insatiable curiosity. An urge to grow and broaden mentally inspires them to ask questions and then speculate upon those answers constantly.

They visualize conceptions in their wholeness rather than in their parts. They bypass observable facts for their own notions as they think things out from a given premise to a natural conclusion. They are essentially intellectuals with an active intuition; mental journeys allow them to get away from themselves and their environment so that they can broaden their horizons.

Sagittarius abhors confinement, deception, and routine. They detest talk that skirts the point, formal etiquette, and closed-in areas or places of restraint and confinement. Their patience is tried with the natural growth of plans and projects.

Their restlessness can lead them to become bored easily and constantly seek new experiences and knowledge. They are at their best when called upon to make lightning-quick decisions, to use physical and mental activity, and to engage in the zeal of an argument. They prefer effectiveness rather than elegance. They like to consider both their life and their work as a game to be won. They need recreation, because at times, their intensity tends to burn up their vitality.

They are often humorous and jovial, making them great company.

They are forthright and honest, but sometimes they may be too blunt and say things for shock-value, unintentionally hurting others' feelings with their frankness.

Their love for freedom and independence often leads them to prefer a life of exploration and adventure, over a life of restriction and routine.

In relationships, Sagittarius dominants need a partner who gives them space and encourages their autonomy. They dislike clinginess or expectations of constant togetherness. Sagittarians want the freedom to explore interests separately from their partner at times.

With their blunt honesty and dislike of emotional intensity, Sagittarians may struggle understanding a partner's sensitivities. They need to work on empathy and considering their partner's feelings.

While committing is challenging, Sagittarians are lively, fun-loving partners once they do. They enjoy trying new activities together and having adventurous dates. An element of surprise and variety keeps things exciting.

In their career, Sagittarius Dominants excel in professions that allow them to utilize their quest for knowledge and love for exploration. While corporate desk jobs tend to be torture for the free-spirited Sagittarian Dominant, they are well-suited for roles in academia, research, counseling, travel, engineering, or any field that allows them to explore new ideas and cultures.

Sagittarius is often linked to the hips, thighs, and liver. They may be prone to issues related to these areas, such as hip joint problems, muscle imbalances, injuries, or liver-related imbalances. Sagittarians are known for their restless and active energy, and they have a natural inclination for physical activity and sports. However, they should be mindful of overexertion and the need for proper rest and recovery.

Potential Challenges

Typically, Sagittarians' main challenges lie in finishing what they start and dealing with routine. Their wandering minds need focus and discipline. Sagittarians also need to develop empathy, tact, and emotional maturity. Bluntness and insensitivity can jeopardize relationships.
