Sagittarius - The Love Lamp
The detached, indifferent, and typically humorous expression of Sagittarius acts as a deceptive subterfuge to what tends to cover a tender, amorous and committed heart. The Mutable/Fire Sagittarian individual sees life as an adventure; and similar to their love life, like to keep sentiment free from heavy emotional undertones. It is sufficient for these individuals to express affection in playfulness, spontaneous affection and regardless of internal commitment, a fierce guardianship over their freedom and independence will be a terminal presence. Life is a bowl of cherries to Sagittarius, and they like to keep their romance sparkling with the same idealism; optimism, faith, good music, good wine, adventure and never enough emotion to greywash the portrait. Love is casual, fun and blithe here, and seen as an addition of one’s journey and play rather than an entity to fill an internal emptiness or void.
When we peel beyond the layers of Sagittarian knowledge and novelty, often we find vicious insecurities, and a deeper shame and embarrassment surrounding intimacy and bearing heart. Despite a carefree and free spirited attitude, Sagittarians tend to take on a world of responsibility in relationships, and often take the blame for conflict or fallout. With a Fire heart, these individuals are fierce protectors of their loved ones and possess a universe of ready sympathy, thoughtfulness and romantic idealism. The mysterious half human half horse maintains his enigma through love, and can be frustratingly hard to read for those on the receiving end. All too often, the Sagittarian individual is swept up in their own physical and spiritual exploration through mental imagery; and this often leaves the impression of detachment or even avoidance in relationships. Although the Sagittarius is an extrovert at heart, these individuals believe in giving their partners plenty of breathing space; and require the same in return.
As a Mutable sign, Sagittarius maintain an airy and light approach to relationships that remains charming through adaptability and combined favor and luck through benefic Jupiter. These individuals tend to navigate life through an internal intuitive compass, and often have profound insights about the inner needs of their partners and accuracy in foretelling the future of relationships. Life to Sagittarius is a big, mysterious, curiosity enriching adventure, and their love life and relationships continue the theme. All too often the lure of overseas love, romance abroad, marriage to a foreigner propel these individuals to follow journey by heart, and many see romance as another form of faraway adventure. These individuals are more at comfort with a giggle, a kiss on the cheek and a night on the town rather than the materialism of traditional romance novels. Love to Sagittarius is the held out hand beckoning for new adventure, the roll over to morning laughter, days on end staring into new scenery, and the infection of optimism, spirit, faith and wander.
