Jupiter is the planet of influence on the Sagittarian male, and it corresponds to philosophy, culture, and royalty as well as the god Jupiter from the Roman pantheon who is the King of the Gods (analogous to Zeus in the Greek pantheon). The planet’s influence is associated with the word expansion. At this point, it should be noted that some astrologers consider Jupiter as a transpersonal planet so it is an astral body that has little to no influence on the individual personality and more of an influence on society, in general.
Nevertheless, in viewing the characteristics and behavioral attributes of the Sagittarius male, it’s obvious the energies resonating with the planet of influence still align with the nature of the Sagittarius man. This is true even when considering negative aspects of the planet’s influence.
This planet’s energies resonate with joy, adventure, exploration, personal freedom, and growth in all sectors of one’s life. With Jupiter being associated with the king of the gods, it also causes the planet to resonate with the desire for monetary wealth, status, and power. The planet resonates with luck, political power, education, prosperity, abundance, fertility, and fame. Negatively, this planet can resonate with overindulgence and irresponsibility or even living a life of excess.
Sagittarius Man In Love & In Bed
(Venus in Sagittarius)
The Sagittarius man is an adventurous soul so you can expect a lot of adventure in the bedroom. Sagittarian men want to keep it varied and a little bit spicy. You may find your mixing of the location a bit from time to time is just the right thing to keep the sparks flying. If you’re a little conservative when it comes to sex, he may not be the ideal match for Sagittarius who has no trouble trying new things. But, if you got the inner strength and the fortitude to hang on for the wild ride so to speak, you will not be disappointed. Indeed, the Sagittarius man will leave you something to talk about outside of the bedroom with your friends.
When it comes to Sagittarius men, sex is just part and parcel of the entire relationship. He will revere you as his partner for both your physical and intellectual aspects and love your whole-heartedly. However, he’s all about personal space so he may need some time alone. On the same token, he’ll give you as his partner equal personal space so you can have downtime as well. If you go to partner up with a Sagittarius and you become insecure, clingy or possessiveness, it is not something he will tolerate.
The Sagittarius man’s desire for freedom sometimes makes him slow to commit, but when he commits he does so with all seriousness. Mildly fickle where love is concerned, it’s not surprising if you find a Sagittarius guy on his second marriage. As a marriage partner, the Sagittarian is kind, open, giving, and passionate. He has no problem on demonstrating affection even if you’re out in public. One obstacle he must overcome in intimate relationships is being able to empathize with a partner and see things from their perspective.
Sagittarius Man Traits, Personality, Characteristics
The Sagittarius male is a person who focuses on expansion – whether that must do with money, his circle of friends, his knowledge, or his consciousness. As mentioned previously, the planetary influence of this Sun Sign also aligns with the idea of expansion, growth, development, evolution, progress, advancement, increase, improvement, and maturation. The Sagittarius male is one who is constantly evolving, improving, progressing, growing, and yes, maturing. While he might seem like your average perpetual Peter Pan, underneath he is slowly developing a sense of intense responsibility and commitment. He will spend his entire life looking to expand his opportunities, to grow, and to increase his ability to influence or have an impact on his personal reality and, on a larger scale, the world.
Sagittarius males have amazing minds and are well known for their clever wit, near genius, and the constant desire to learn more. He will often have an intense and rich understanding of spirituality, the metaphysical world, and he also enjoys philosophical understandings and studies. Bear in mind that the traditional classroom environment might seem like an absolute drag to the Sagittarius male who might be bogged down and hindered by the pace of the classes he attends. Instead, you will find he learns so much more on his own time.
Your Sagittarius man will appreciate a chance to travel, see what is out there in the world, and to engage with members of different cultures. Travels allow him to cultivate an education through unique experiences so you will find he can hardly get enough of travel once he starts. One thing is for certain: You’ll come to notice quickly he is a very generous man, and this can sometimes be a negative as people may attempt to take advantage of him. Even worse is that the Sagittarian man might feel wealthy enough to be charitable even when he isn’t and he has the propensity to go overboard with his generosity. To the Sagittarian male, being generous is, in and of itself, its own reward, and the act of giving to others makes him feel good about himself in the process.
Hearth & Home
All those born under the Sagittarius zodiac sign have a penchant for travel, so don’t be surprised if they dress up the interior of their home with a theme related to worldly travel. For instance, if your Sagittarian man has ever had a chance to visit Egypt he might have Egyptian statues and replicas of works of art from the ancient culture in the various rooms of his home. He might also mix and match décor from different cultures but will present it in such a way that the home’s atmosphere doesn’t become chaotic or confusing. Don’t be at all surprised if you find at least one giant wall map of the world among the intricate works of art he cherishes the most.
While having lovely and worldly art is important to your Sagittarius man, so is having plenty of open air to breathe and move around. He cares not too much for crowded spaces, so you’ll find his open is often wide open with large windows and streamlined sections of open space and the home may even have extra high ceilings for additional space and airiness. To lend to the openness of the home, small knickknacks and other items are kept dust-free and to a bare minimum – clean, tasteful, and exotic is the sense you get when you walk into his abode! The open areas of the home give him a sense of free movement which is oh so important to the free-spirited, don’t-you-dare-crowd-me Sagittarian male!
Health & Well-Being
The parts of the body ruled by this sun sign include the liver, pelvis, hips, and thighs. Occasionally, the Sagittarius man might be prone to visual difficulties, like cataract development and issues with the neck are also common. Sagittarius males might develop Diabetes, high cholesterol or they may have trouble with weight management: This is likely due to all the travel they do and eating fast foods on the go or all those richly high-calorie dinners while out on the road. Some also develop issues with drinking as is indicative of liver problems in some instances. In relation to skeletal issues, the Sagittarius man may develop spinal conditions, trouble with the hips, rheumatism, or sciatica.
Career & Finance
Your Sagittarius man will bring his desire for adventure straight into his career path and it is there he seems to simply magnetized money and draw it to him with whatever undertaking he decides to do. A true visionary who is highly intelligent and imaginative, he has no problem finding or retaining work. Once in a position, when there is room for growth, he climbs the ranks quickly. He easily begins making enough money to live a comfortable and quite secure life. And a posh life he craves and will accept nothing short of that.
To be remembered, to receive public acclaim and prestige, to become famous, and, most of all, the money that comes with all the latter is what your man really wants. If these things are approached for the wrong reasons, without wholesome intent or a desire to serve the greater good of society (remember the Rulership of Jupiter here) then expansion in the career sector may be little to none. If the career is approached with a desire to serve others and not just to stroke his own ego, then the Sagittarius male may very well achieve all his dreams and a whole lot easier than he might initially believe.
On the job the Sagittarian male is dedicated to the work at hand and he makes the business heads quite happy. He is an excellent co-worker since he finds it easy to work with teams, and he attempts to be helpful whenever possible. If the work is challenging they will put far more effort into the work as he loves nothing more than a good challenge. If the job involves travel he’ll likely find great passion in his work. Eventually, he will strive to expand in the industry he works in, as the need to expand and evolve is natural to the Sagittarian male.
How to Attract a Sagittarius Man
Sagittarius men are highly visual creatures so make sure you look your best. Break out the cosmetics, hit the salon for a fresh haircut, and draw him in with your smile. Then, be brave and walk right up to him and ask him out. There’s a terrific chance he’ll say yes because he’s laid back and easy-going. Anytime is the right time to ask: A free moment at work, or during five-minute chat off hours, just be quick about asking because Sagittarius men don’t stay free for long, despite their love for freedom.
Want to engage him in conversation Bring up the topic of travel and you’ll be able to talk for hours. Even if he hasn’t traveled in a while, you can bet he’s been dreaming about doing so. Or ask him about his last read and he’ll be sure to tell you all about the latest book his conquered. Talk about philosophical subjects and demonstrate your intelligence and wit as you do: This will have him viewing you in a positive light.
If you want to know where to go on a first date, consider, once again, the thing he loves doing most. He likes travel so he’s likely to enjoy different cuisines and exotic foods. He likes good conversation and he’s pretty social, so going to a party or to a local bar for a few drinks might be ideal. His love of reading might have you both in the local bookstore in the aisle where they sell books on philosophy and sitting down with a hot cup of coffee as you discuss all the things your Sagittarius man finds intriguing!
Dating a Sagittarius Man
Sagittarius appreciates the opportunity to travel and does so as often as possible. It’s not unlike a Sagittarius male to take an impromptu trip for a weekend just to get away from it all and to experience the freedom that travel and no boundaries offer. Sagittarius is prone to engage in some risky pastimes too, seeing they like the feel of adrenaline in their blood – racing, bungee jumping, parachute jumping … anything that gets that blood pumping but good is a practice you’ll find Sagittarius men appreciate. This type of male has an appreciation for animals as well, and may volunteer his spare time at a shelter.
Sagittarius people are honest and sometimes to a fault. They, therefore, do not appreciate deception of any kind whatsoever. Stagnation or boredom: Either way, the Sagittarius male will be practically crawling out of his skin if there isn’t movement or action going on in his life. There is little sitting still for the Sagittarius guy who probably paces back and forth in the huge open spaces he also craves; it’s as if sitting for a long period is the same thing as being restricted so he feels as if his freedom is compromised.
He’s likely to walk away from any extra responsibility if he doesn’t really have to take it on; for example, if he owns a small business, he’s likely to have managers run it for him, and an accountant to handle all the funds management instead of dealing with things hands-on. His willingness to delegate authority is because he doesn’t want his free time consumed by responsibilities.
Best Match for the Sagittarius Man
Friends and Family
A Sagittarius man is one with a great attitude and a calm demeanor. He tends to have a bright attitude and enters a marriage optimistic. He will demand fidelity and a partner willing to help raise a family. When a Sagittarius man is introduced to fatherhood it’s something he takes a little time to adjust to but eventually embraces the responsibility wholeheartedly and with zeal.
The Sagittarius father stresses independence and controlled restraint in his children. He spends quality time with them in this way he passes on his knowledge through modeling and enjoyable, memorable interactions. When children are school aged, he will encourage them to participate in their studies and to diligently apply themselves to obtaining their education. If your Sagittarius man is active and into sports, he will encourage the same in his children.
Sagittarius boys are always on the go. They are both independent and rather restless and able to explore all the world offers. The minute he can walk or even crawl you’ll find this boy moving all about. Indeed, the parents must chase the child to keep up with them, and this seems to be a theme of his life for a romantic partner will also be on the chase! He is joyous and sociable social, and able to get along with siblings nicely. He makes friends with ease as well.
Sagittarius is often most compatible with Aquarius, Libra, Leo, and Aries. Libra has a well-balanced attitude; this goes well with the Sagittarius man’s happy-go-lucky attitude. Aquarius might look like an unconventional match for Sagittarius but Aquarius’ forward thinking matches Sagittarius’ optimism and needs for free movement and personal space. Leo and Sagittarius is a great mix as each partner can give the other the attention and doting they require. Aries is all about action and Sagittarius is about movement, freedom, and space, thus, this mix is an excellent match since their needs align nicely.
The least compatible signs with Sagittarius are generally considered to be, Capricorn, Virgo, and Pisces. Capricorn and Sagittarius are just worlds apart and make for a troubled couple if they can’t find common ground, which is usually emotions, and these too can be volatile. Lasting friendship can be found, but lasting love between this pairing is a bit rare. The same goes for Virgo and Sagittarius whereas Virgo is an Earth sign and Sagittarius a fire sign, mixing the two brings together Virgo’s earthy, fix nature and Sagittarius’ need for freedom and movement; eventually, the Sagittarius male is likely to find the relationship way to confining. Pisces and Sagittarius go together well at first, at least while things are good, but the first sign something is wrong in the relationship and it fizzles out real fast.
Astrology & Zodiac Gifts
Want to give him a gift he will love? Consider any of the top-selling books on the market or even something on philosophy. He loves his freedom too, so if you’ve been together for a while, why not give him some tickets to take his best buddy on a getaway where he can enjoy a weekend of golf or fishing? Travel is one of his favorite things to do as well, so you’ll be killing two birds with one stone so to speak as you allow him personal freedom and send him on a trip!
Facts, Mythology, & Metaphysics
The centaur from Greek myth corresponds to the sun sign of Sagittarius. The sign is represented by a very specific centaur, Chiron, who is depicted a bit differently than other Greek centaurs. Chiron is sometimes portrayed as having the front legs of a man, whereas other centaurs are more animal than human since they feature four horse legs. Chiron, or the Archer, is an instructor, guide, mentor, and teacher of the young, and is in stories where he teaches young Achilles how to play the lyre.
Sagittarius corresponds to the Temperance and The Wheel of Fortune Cards in the Tarot. The temperance card aligns with the idea of being moderate, compromising, and remaining balanced while one stands on a middle ground: This is something your Sagittarius man can benefit from doing regularly. The Wheel of Fortune relates to this Sun Sign through the idea of movement, change, and being caught up in novel things or trying to keep pace with life.
In Numerology, Sagittarius aligns with the Number 3, which resonates with expansion, growth, energy, and freedom-seeking. Finally, the corresponding Chakra is the Solar Plexus or Manipura. The Solar Plexus Chakra aligns with the amiability of one’s personality, self-discipline, personal will, and one’s self-esteem. By nature, Sagittarians are extremely confident folks. However, if the Solar Plexus Chakra is blocked or damaged the Sagittarius Zodiac Sign can be extremely UNconfident. The word to notice here is ‘etremely’ – Sagittarius people do almost everything to extreme.
