Sagittarius and Family
One might assume the fiercely independent and freedom loving Sagittarius would find it difficult to submit to a family way of life, but this is not necessarily the case. Sure, the Sagittarius homemaker may at times struggle with the daily commitment and succumb to occasional moody outbursts, but if allowed some leeway and forgiveness, Sagittarius can be devoted and loyal to their partner and children. It won't necessarily be easy going though as their outbursts can be totally unexpected - seemingly without provocation. More than likely your Sagittarius family member has been finding the environment stifling and they've just reached their boiling point. To keep your Sagittarius happy will require compromises from the rest of the family. But it doesn't have to be that you need to let your Sagittarius run free - it can greatly help to simply mix in some adventurous, challenging outdoor or physical activities into the family routine.
A likely difficulty to be had with a Sagittarius spouse is their propensity to position their careers foremost before family. This can be very challenging for the partner of a Sagittarius who does not also posses a career-first character. This Sagittarius trait of putting work first equally applies for if they have children. Sagittarius can suddenly cancel planned family functions, resolutely deciding that a work related matter is more important and cannot wait. It can be very traumatizing to children to not have their parent attend functions important to them, failing to comprehend why they seemingly take a backseat to the career of their Sagittarian parent. Spouses will understandingly be unimpressed and disappointed in their Sagittarius partner, evidently leading to family discord.
Conversely though, Sagittarius can be very indulgent toward their children, affording them considerable leeway in their behavior. The children will have no issue with this lack of parenting, ignorant to the fact that it's not healthy to their upbringing. This will place pressure on the other parent to be the disciplinarian, needed to ensure their children learn the boundaries and can one day handle life on their own.
So life with a Sagittarius in the family can be taxing, and does require some compromises to cater for their needed freedom and independence. But it needn't be all that bad. In fact, it can be quite rewarding and fun-filled if you can participate in some of the same activities they like. You don't need to tag along to every one of their adventures, or like everything they like. In fact, that would be too overbearing for the Sagittarius. But a trait of a Sagittarius is that they do wish for their partners and children to equally enjoy life's adventures, and you'll surely have a wow of a time participating in some of the adventures your Sagittarius like to embark upon. Consider it quality family time! » Back to About Sagittarius Menu

About Sagittarius Money:
Sagittarius and Money
For Sagittarius, money is simply a means (albeit an important means) of supporting their appetite for jetting around the world and expanding their horizons. Thus, Sagittarius are truly blessed when it comes to money. Equipped with an enthusiastic, confident and intense work ethic, along with some luck afforded by their planetary ruler Juniper (known for bestowing good fortune), Sagittarius are seemingly able to manage their finances, even in light of their propensity to spend lots of money quickly.
Making money is important to a Sagittarian so that they can support their exuberance in experiencing all that life has to offer. They are capable of expending extraordinary energy in earning the money they deem necessary to fund their personal pursuits. And Sagittarius are equally capable at spending a fair some of money with little hesitation. But regardless of how much money they spend, the ever optimistic Sagittarius will remain confident that they can easily replenish their finances with a bit of hard work and determination.
The reason that Sagittarius seemingly make money easily can be attributed in part to their ability of identifying and striking upon lucrative ventures, and their willingness to take calculable risks. This relative ease in which Sagittarius can recoup upon their indulgent spending is further encouragement to their sense of freedom. Being generous people, when holding onto ample funds Sagittarius are often willing to lend or share their money with others.
Sagittarius folk like to work hard and play hard. They fully comprehend that the fruits of their labor will help them to afford the adventurous lifestyle they seek. Those Sagittarius that are not committed to family will likely maintain a healthy work-life balance, efficiently completing work tasks so they can pursue their own physical and mental interests. However, those Sagittarius with families are susceptible to placing a too high priority on their work over family.
The Sagittarius work ethic is to "get-it-done", being an employee that you can always count upon. But don't try to micromanage or look over your Sagittarius employee's shoulder, as not only will it annoy them, but what you see may concern you. Sagittarius employees require flexibility to do the the things that keep them knowledgeable and interested, thus procrastinating on the seemingly mundane tasks. They work well under pressure, and it's this trait that allows them to reliably but proficiently complete set tasks on time, likely fueled by the adrenaline in meeting the deadline.
As fellow colleagues, don't expect Sagittarius to be everyone's best friend. Whilst they are fun and friendly people to know, they like to maintain some distance between work and their "meaningful" life. Sagittarius make for equitable bosses, with a focus on getting the work done and ensuring a work-life balance for all. They will avoid office politics and workplace dramas.
Professions well suited to those born of the Sagittarius star sign are photographers, travel agents, sales agents, ambassadors, actors, editors, researchers and professors. » Back to About Sagittarius Menu
