So, you’re interested in a Sagittarius. They are everything that you could possibly want in a partner. They’re funny. Engaging. Optimistic and forward-looking. A wonder to be around. The only problem is that you’ve heard through the grapevine that Sagittarians aren’t always the most committed people. You’ve heard that they tend to avoid commitment as much as possible, so you’re somewhat hesitant to make the first move. Are Sagittarius hard to pin down? Yes, in some ways this is true. But, it’s important to remember that there are plenty of Sagittarians who are in long-term, committed relationships. So, what gives? Is Sagittarius the eternal bachelor and bachelorette, or do they simply have special requirements in order to finally settle down in a relationship? Continue to read on to find out more about the love nature of Sagittarius.
Is Sagittarius Non-Committal?
Just as there are the zodiac signs that are considered to be the solid, stable partners such as the earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn or the more fixed signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius, there are also those zodiac signs that are considered a bit flaky. Whether this is because they’re more likely to flirt, have a roaming eye, or are simply a bit emotionally distant, they’re just some zodiac signs that have been labeled as less relationship-oriented. In some cases, Sagittarius often gets this label due to its fiery, mutable nature.Read More »
Now, do these traits make Sagittarius non-committal necessarily? No. Sagittarius will settle down. They just need a certain type of person for them to consider commitment.
The Wild Horse Roams Free
One of the Sagittarius archetypes is the wild horse. If you’ve ever seen a wild horse in its element, it’s really a sight to see. Wild horses possess this unbridled rawness as they gallop about with no limitations. Sagittarians possess this unbridled, free energy that doesn’t really want to be tamed. Typically speaking, Sagittarius wants to be able to explore various horizons without feeling tethered down. For those seeking a more secure, predictable relationship, the Sagittarian who wants to explore varied horizons may give off the impression of being noncommittal and unavailable. For some of this sign, this is the case. However, for other Sagittarians, it’s not that they don’t want to settle down and have a partner, they just don’t want to give up their freedom and ability to travel and experience life on their own terms.
Variety & Freedom in Relationship
For those seeking to be in a relationship with a Sagittarius, it is important to accept that this is a sign that truly values its freedom. This means that trying to force a commitment onto Sagittarius is not likely to work. Instead, Sagittarius is the type of sign that needs a partner that has their own life. Sagittarius values relationships where there is interdependency as opposed to codependency. Sagittarius has a passionate nature that is also adaptable because of their mutability. They enjoy partners who can keep them on their toes and engaged. This isn’t the type of sign that wants to settle down and get into a predictable rut.
The more variety, freedom, and intrigue that an individual has to offer Sagittarius in a partnership, the more likely Sagittarius is to willingly engage with an individual on a long-term basis. Partners that can help expand their perspectives through traveling, deep conversations, and simply offering varied perspectives are more likely to be considered serious contenders for partnership.
Also, Sagittarius commits when they are ready. Trying to make a Sagittarius settle down before they’re ready won’t go well. At some point, they’ll get bored, annoyed, or just simply feel unhappy, and this will likely result in the Sagittarius embracing the energy of the wild horse archetype and bolting away to greener, freer pastures. In general, Sagittarius isn’t a sign that enjoys being miserable. After all, they are ruled by the benevolent, jovial energy of Jupiter.
So, if you find that you’re interested in a Sagittarius, your best bet is just to keep it light, easy, and stay in touch. Being genuine with Sagittarius goes a long way. If they ultimately decide that someone is a great contender for a long-term relationship, this sign is not shy about being blunt and forward about their intentions and desires.
Astrologically, Love Nature is Complex
When discussing the love nature of Sagittarius or any other sign for that matter, it is important to remember that the sun sign is not the only element that determines the love nature in astrology. It is also important to look at the moon and Venus signs to determine what a person needs to feel secure (moon) and what they desire in love and relationships, which is represented by Venus.
For example, while the general characteristics of Sagittarius paint this sign as more carefree and lighthearted in relationships, a Sagittarius sun with Venus in Capricorn will possess a light-hearted demeanor, but their desire romantically as represented by Venus will take on the characteristics of Capricorn. Venus in Capricorn is serious about their relationships and desires a concrete, grounded relationship. Likewise, a Sagittarius sun with a moon in Scorpio will possess the general traits of Sagittarius, but emotionally, as represented by the moon, will require an intimate, deep connection with their partners due to the influence of Scorpio.
So, it is important to consider the other planetary placements in a person’s natal chart in order to determine the overall love nature of Sagittarius and other zodiac sun signs.
