The ninth sign of the Zodiac, Sagittarius is most often described as the dynamic and adventurous "character".
With a fiery intelligence, good humor and quick wit, Sagittarians love to be surrounded by friends and family who they can regale with amusing anecdotes and funny stories. Their laughter is infectious.
Born under the lucky planet of Jupiter, their deep and abiding directive is adventure which, if overdone, sometimes results in misfortune through accidents, or from impulsiveness or impatience with those around them.
Sometimes quick to anger, they are known for a notoriously biting sarcasm and sharp tongue, a chief Sagittarian failing.
However, their general open-heartedness and sunny outlook usually see them through social faux pas or even physical mishaps. Among the most vital of the astrological signs, Sagittarians usually enjoy robust health and long lives.
