Sagittarius man - November 23-December 21
He will age but never grow old, he will flirt with many but never break a heart, he will laugh with you but never at you…he is the quintessential Sagittarian man. Easy to talk to and easy to be with, he takes mere social small talk to a new level of stimulating conversation. Not only is he blessed with eloquence but he is also knowledgeable enough to converse on a range of topics. With a Sagittarius guy for company, there would never be a dreary moment to crib about.
His penchant for knowledge and eagerness to know more is touched with a child-like innocence, although this is no indication that he lacks worldly wisdom. He is street smart, and his easy-going nature belies an intellectual mind and a rare spiritual consciousness too.
The Sagittarian guy has patience but just enough patience to get along smoothly in life. You can’t make undue demands on his time and generosity as that might make him lose his patience. The best way to get friendly with him is to share his sense of humour. And that’s not all, as there is a lot more to this Sagittarian male persona...
How can you identify a Sagittarius man in a crowd?
Sagittarius men are seen and known to be more assertive than aggressive. There might be some 15 odd per cent of Sagittarius men who would have an aggressive body language. The majority come across as extremely composed, patient, sure about what they want and where they wish to get…without showing the least amount of apprehension or urgency.
You can usually identify a Sagittarius man through his speech. He is usually very knowledgeable and when he speaks you will notice certain authoritativeness on the subject of his conversation. He is great at playing with words and is usually very charming with women. He is equally animated during conversations with his male friends. This is one guy who likes to use logic in everything. Although practical, he is also extremely adventurous and not one to dread trying untested waters.
In his commitments as well as words he is extremely straightforward and blunt yet he possesses a unique quality of being a diplomat too.
What are the key features of his personality?
The Sagittarius male is much like his female counterpart in various aspects. He is adventurous by nature, often boisterous in his manner, loves the outdoors, gets easily frustrated by the mundane, is quick to fall in love and is passionate in expressing the same.
For a Sagittarius man two and two make four. Life’s as simple as that and he will be quite direct about it too. He doesn’t waste time mincing words, although he is pretty good with them. While expressing his opinions he is forthright and sometimes even blunt. But let me assure you his sharp tongue makes no difference to his popularity. His bluntness is very well balanced with charm and diplomacy.
This attribute makes him an ace at maintaining relationships. He dislikes unpleasantness of any kind with his acquaintances and is therefore apt to patch up any dispute he may have with them. He always prefers being on good terms with everybody. Because of this quality Sagittarius men tend to be friendly and at ease with ex-girlfriends and ex-wives too.
How should one deal effectively with a Sagittarius man?
A Sagittarius male finds it difficult to deal with people who are either not at par with his intellectual level or on the same mental page. So far I have made him sound intense (which he is) but at the same time he is also extremely humourous and witty. More often displaying a dry sense of humour, he finds it easy to get along with people who possess the same.
Being detailed, he has a knack for asking questions (and I mean a lot of questions) that are relevant to the situation at hand and isn’t satisfied till he gets the right answers. His follow-ups are equally prompt for questions that are left unanswered. So to effectively deal with a Sagittarius man you must have carried out your homework with due diligence.
Is there something more to his persona?
A Sagittarian male has the gift of the gab. With his persuasive skills, he is very good at convincing others. That’s what makes him excel at marketing and sales. Want to sell snow to Eskimos? He’s the man for you!
People say Sagittarians have a strong luck factor working for them. But the truth is if you believe in your ideas and dreams and back it up with sincerity, hard work and self- confidence you can achieve most things in life. The self-confidence quotient of saying and believing in ‘I can’ gets you to places…and that’s the secret Sagittarian mantra.
A Sagittarius male is quite independent in his thinking and I have observed that his thoughts are laced with creativity. And this is no ordinary creativeness…there’s something unique in his thinking process, so much so that you will find him arriving at conclusions different from most men.
And it is this unique thought process that makes him lead a life away from home. He needs space for himself and may find the sentimental atmosphere at home a bit stifling. But that is not to say he is bereft of emotions…he values his relationships but also recognises the potency of his own needs.
How is he on the following aspects?
Appearance: When it comes to clothing and accessories, he believes in style and fashion. He might not admit it but he is conscious about his looks…literally from head(hair) to toe. Just like his fire sign counterparts, he appreciates everything that comes with a luxury tag and regal air. He is usually metrosexual and belongs to that category of men who subscribe to men’s magazines in order to keep up with trends, fashions and what not. He has deep-pocket, sunken eyes and sports a mature look on his face from quite an early age.
Ambition: If you ever come across a Sagittarius man who is not ambitious, let me know.Sagittarius men come with an in-built mechanism to succeed. And they have ample ambition to drive them ahead. Moreover, their instinct to have the very best of everything is coupled with their desire to excel at everything.
Very often a Sagittarius man is led into ambitious plans due to his passion and he can be quite intuitive at that too. For example his passion for good food can get so overbearing that he will be propelled into starting a restaurant. Interestingly, 30 per cent of the Sagittarius men that I have met across the world either run/own a restaurant or plan to open one. They also love to travel and have a knack of collecting the finer things of life during their journeys…which are amply manifested in their homes and offices.
How is he when in love?
There’s one word to describe a Sagittarius man in love…crazy. He is a true romantic and won’t fall short of doing the craziest of things to prove his love or to simply live the romance of his dreams. He is both eager and restless to experience love.
As said earlier, Sagittarius men generally have attractive personalities and women are naturally drawn to them. Most of them buckle under the pressure of such feminine attention and become flirts. A teenage Sagittarian will learn love by trial and error and therefore is likely to have a long list of girlfriends. But as he matures and understands the concept of love, he grows more comfortable in a relationship. He would then seek and strive for emotional stability.
If your love interest is a Sagittarian, then lady you have a hard time ahead of you. You will have to make yourself visible amongst the crowd of blondes and brunettes surrounding him. But let me assure you if you have the right kind of feminine charm and intelligence, he will seek you out…for this man wants a complete package for himself. His woman has to be not just a ‘woman’ but one with an intellect to reckon with.
Once you are dating him or even married to him, remember the ground rule—give him space. This guy likes freedom and adores people who give him that. But that doesn’t mean he is totally independent. When the heartstrings start tugging he’ll come running into your arms.
How to gauge the compatibility level with a man who is not ready to commit himself? Will judging compatibility with him lead to a fruitful relationship? These questions are largely situational and generally depend on individual requirements. But based on the typical Sagittarian man’s personality traits, one can to a great extent determine what kind of women from the different zodiac signs can get along well with him.
Sagittarian man and…
Aries woman: 9/10. Excellent match! Both are impulsive and adventure-loving. He will keep the love fires glowing with his romanticism and good humour, while she will impress him constantly with her spontaneity. But she will of course have to rein her tongue to make this relationship work.
Taurus woman: 6/10. This relationship can work only if both are able to set to each other’s tune. The Sagittarian man will love her homeliness but won’t be able to take her emotional neediness. The Taurus woman will love his adventure spirit but might take his flirtatious nature too well.
Gemini woman: 7/10. While they both have same intellectual wavelength, they are too disparate emotionally. With love they can iron out the differences: he would have to be a bit more demonstrative of his love, while she should curb her friendliness with other men.
Cancer woman: 4/10. The Sagittarian man’s blunt tongue might shock the Cancerian’s sensitivity. If they don’t make compromises, he would find the relationship too binding while she would be hurt by his flirtatious ways.
Leo woman: 7/10. Great chemistry and a happy match! Both are fun loving and adventurous and are likely to hit off well in the long run. Of course, the Leo woman will have to be less demanding of his attention.
Virgo woman: 4/10. Not a very happy venture! The Virgo woman is homely and serious while the Sagittarian is adventurous and loves to be out in the open. Lot of hard work and compromises will be required to make this relationship work.
Libra woman: 8/10. If they are able to overcome the initial hiccups, this can be a fulfilling relationship. It would take a lot of convincing for both of them to commit as both are hesitant and the Libran is especially indecisive. But there on it would be a ball!
Scorpio woman: 4/10. The Scorpion is too intense to take the Sagittarian fun loving nature in her stride. While she has passion enough to ignite the fires of romance, he has good humour to make this relationship not fall into monotony. But both will have to work doubly hard to make this combination work in the long run.
Sagittarius woman: 9/10: Since she shares a lot with her male counterpart, both the archers will make a wonderful pair. Adventurous, fun loving and optimistic, they are likely to have a rocking time together. However, either the male or the female archer must have sense enough to hold their relationship above frivolity and fun.
Capricorn woman: 7/10: These two can hit off rather well. But how they would fare in the long run is a matter of adjustments and getting attuned to each other’s personality traits. As far as their natures go, the woman is quite intense while the male tends to get frivolous and flirtatious at times.
Aquarius woman: 9/10: A match well made! Both have qualities that the other appreciates. There will be not dearth of stimulating conversation in this relationship. Both are also capable of understanding each other beautifully.
Pisces woman: 4/10: It is a rare thing for a Sagittarian male to get off on a good start with the Piscean woman. And if they do, they are likely to fall apart in the long run. There is too much of gap between his realism and her dreaminess.
