Oh, Sagittarius. Freedom, exploration, wild horses! New horizons and sunny skies! Sagittarius is much-loved sign. Except for when it comes to relationships. “They can’t be tamed!” people say. “They can’t commit, they always leave, they can say they love you right before they move to another continent.”
I get it! They truly are wild, and some of them do have a knack for seeming single even when they’ve been married for forty years. They’ll probably never be a solid, stay-at-home cuddle buddy, and they’ll never be tame. But anyone who expects that from them is missing the point.
Sagittarian love is free and wild. It is sweet and pure and simple, no strings attached. It sweeps you off your feet and takes you to lands you’ve never dreamed of. Imagine laying in a grassy meadow on a perfect spring day, feeling the breeze in your hair as the sun warms your skin. Imagine talking about your dreams and philosophy and the meaning of life, then holding hands and running into the sunset, laughing the whole way. Imagine being adored for exactly who you are. Imagine someone who doesn’t want to fix you because to them there’s nothing broken.
Yes, Sagittarius demands freedom. But they give you the same thing in return. You are free to be who you are and explore your mind and the world without limitation. You’re free to change and grow and accumulate life experiences and become more beautiful and perfect with each new lesson learned. All they ask is to have to be given the same thing.
And that doesn’t mean they can’t commit! For Sagittarius, love and commitment can BE freedom. The ability to go and explore and know you always have a home to return to. Think of a young child on the playground. They will run wild, touching everything, laughing and having a blast. And every once in a while, they stop what they’re doing, look around, and go running back to their parent as fast as their legs will take them. They’ll smile sweetly and jump into their arms, reveling in the comfort of knowing their person is still there. And then it’s off to the next adventure.
Adventures are more fun when there’s a home to go back to. Even great explorers need a base camp.
My oldest friend is heavily Sagittarian. She is the freest spirit I’ve ever met. I never know what part of the world she’s in, or what new trouble she’s gotten herself into. We’ll go for months with no contact. Then suddenly, she’ll show up at my door, and it will be like she never left. The deep affection between us is a fire that never goes out. And we’ve maintained this for years because I never ask her to stay in one place. She roams, she grows, and she comes back. Always.
Look, if you want someone to cuddle on the couch, eat takeout, and watch old movies with every night, go for Taurus or Cancer. But if you want to run and explore the next great horizon, Sadge has you covered. They’ll show up with wide eyes, and open heart, and stories that will leave you rolling on the floor. They’ll love you forever, exactly as you are. And when they return from their roaming, they’ll come back wiser, stronger, and with eyes only for you.
