Jovial and good-humored
Honest and straightforward
Intellectual and philosophical
On the dark side....
Blindly optimistic and careless
Irresponsible and superficial
Tactless and restless
Those above are some of the characteristics of your typical Sagittarius. I don't dispute them, in fact I very much agree with them. I was born on the 28th of November and I am an Archered Man. I am an eternal optimist, trying to find the good in every situation and making the best with what I have, any gripes of pessimism are quickly dispelled. I am a lover of freedom, I like having my own space, making my own choices and feeling like the world is my oyster. I think some of my distrust of authority figures stems from having my freedom and spirit reigned in, bosses, managers, family and teachers have all at some point or another, tried to calm me down, talk me down or tried to put me on the straight and narrow.
I am rarely in a bad mood. I may get reflective, looking back on things in hindsight or retrospect, processing any feelings or complicated thoughts because I rarely do it at the exact moment something goes down, only afterwards do I take the time for some quiet reflection and either give myself closure or force myself to come to some kind of decision. But generally during every day, uncomplicated life, I am as jovial and good humored as the come.
I don’t lie about the big stuff, sure I might fake a sick day to get out of work or lie to a friend to get out of a social engagement. But this itself is rare enough. I talked about this last night with a friend, over an awkward situation involving two of our other friends, how I wished I was there with them, so I could force a situation where they had to talk about what was troubling them. ‘You might be accused of meddling’ he said to which I quipped ‘It would not be the first time’. But that brings me to some of the darker elements of my fire sign. It has not been unheard of for me be called out for lacking tact or sensitivity. Sometimes it’s something I can’t help. It is very hard to offend or upset me and I forget that it is not always the same way for others.
I cannot argue that I am often irresponsible, on more than one occasion I have got myself into trouble, put myself in danger, or just been completely reckless. This blog is just a catalogue of all the crazy shit I have done. However, I wouldn't agree with being superficial. I always look for the meaning of things, enjoy speaking with people who have a bit more depth. I wouldn't call myself shallow at all. I am most definitely restless, always have been, I can leave a job, move house or change country at the drop of a hat. I generally crave adventure, that is why I socialize so much and enjoy doing exciting things. It probably attributes in large part to my lack of focus. But I want to aim high, what’s the point in being good at something you hate.
A sagittarius message in life is very simple: Don't follow anybody an always think for yourself.
