Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the bluntest of them all?

The honesty honour award goes to the archers of the zodiac – their sharp words can pierce just as much as their pointed arrows. Blessed with good luck and fortune by their ruling planet, Jupiter, Sagittarians are a dependable, loyal and lively bunch.

Spreading optimism and enthusiasm comes naturally to Sagittarians and they often radiate warmth and hope into any situation. However, being over-optimistic can be detrimental to a Sagittarian’s mental health. Trying to always see the bright side of life can be exhausting and sweeping issues under the ‘life is perfect’ rug can later resurface as even bigger issues. 

Freedom-loving and spontaneous, Sagittarians are very charming and most people are drawn to their zest-for-life nature. Being a fire sign, Sagittarians are passionate people and luck is often on their side when it comes to getting what they desire. Sagittarians are also known to be manipulators, and by using their charm and well thought-out words, can often manipulate people and situations to suit their own wants and needs. 

Subtle? What does that word even mean to a Sagittarius? Their honesty is both a blessing and a curse. If you want the honest truth of a situation, Sagittarians are the best sign to chat to. If you’re after empathy and compassion, it’s best to confide in another sign. Whilst their honesty and opinions are welcomed by most, sometimes they have a knack for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time in the worst possible way – causing misunderstandings and coming across as heartless and superficial.


Spotting a Sagittarius

How to spot the Sagittarius woman:

Sagittarius women are open-minded free spirits who are always up for new adventures. She will be the chatty one with the interesting conversations and friendly demeanour. Not one to shy away from meeting new people, she will be the first one to say hello to any new faces in the room. Fashion trends don’t mean a thing to the Sagittarian woman. She prefers practical comfort over sporting the latest style seen on the catwalk. That’s not to say she won’t dress up for an occasion – she will often scrub up incredibly well for parties and events.

How to spot the Sagittarius man:

A driven optimist and avid learner, the Sagittarius man is a highly intellectual individual who enjoys learning new things and adding to his database of knowledge. He knows all the right words to say and his charm works like magic on people. He will usually be the one in the room who has a ton of interesting travel stories to tell and a lot of ‘did you know?’ facts. When it comes to dressing style, the Sagittarius man likes to keep things laidback and casual. Since he loves travelling and adventure, practical clothing is his number one go-to apparel.
