Sagittarius in Love

Like a speeding arrow from your Archer's quiver, you enter the game of love, your only thought to conquer the man you've fallen for and to beat the competition. All the fire signs, of which you are the third, tend to make a battle-ground of their love life - ardour first, everything else, including conscience and certainly wisdom, second. Where you differ from your fire sign sisters is that you are a sprinter in the love stakes, not a marathon runner, in fact you can be quite capricious and difficult to pin down. Yes, you fall madly in love but you can fall out again with surprising speed. Men are attracted to your vivaciousness, your humour, your get up and go, and your enterprise - if anyone has a solution, you do, if anyone needs help, you're there for them. You appear endlessly optimistic and confident on the surface, but you do get hurt, and rather often. Why?

Well, deep down you are terrified of commitment: you are a free spirit, and even though you need love and support just like anyone else, you are equally fearful of being trapped in the tedium of marriage, your horizons shrinking as the years go by. You are eternally young, always looking for the next 'big thing', the next adventure: you do not take easily to the responsibilities and ties of marriage, even though your biological clock ticks as loudly as every other child-bearing woman's. You are non-judgemental and very liberal in your views about fidelity and marriage: after the initial sting of betrayal, you will forgive and forget; likewise, if some other woman isn't looking after her man, you'll have no compunction in taking him away. A little more consideration about where your actions will take you and how they may affect someone else would go a considerable way to speeding your course to happy-ever-afterness. Nevertheless, you have one of the biggest hearts in the zodiac, and someone usually finds it and keeps it.


The Sagittarian Man

They seek him here, they seek him there... Yes, I'm afraid the Sagittarian man is hard to catch - not hard to interest, not difficult to enchant, just near impossible to get to the altar. He is terrific fun, quite the lad, but absolutely not into long-term commitment, in fact he's the zodiac's leading commitment-phobe. If you want him, you're going to have to play the game of running as fast as you can in the opposite direction, refusing all invitations to move in with him, never leaving as much as a toothbrush in his bathroom. Mr Sagittarius loves women who ooze feeling and mystery yet he's also drawn to females who wield power and influence. What drives him away are weeping and wailing, despair and need.


Who's For You

The other Mutable signs top your list of the men most likely to floor and adore you - Pisces, Virgo, Gemini and another Sagittarian. Mr Pisces can barely be resisted: he is the most endearing chap - romantic and idiosyncratic, he keeps you fascinated, and sexually enthralled. In the long run, however, his chronic undependability and his victim mentality can bring the relationship to its knees. Mr Virgo is also a magnet for you. You love this man's mind, his reserve and his unflappable manner - he is not impressed by your dramas, which initially stabilizes the relationship but ultimately stalls it. The Gemini man is your best long-term bet: you both suffer from the commitment jitters but there is just enough sexual tension and enough mutual admiration to keep the relationship going. And much the same could be said for another Sagittarian - two peas in a pod, sometimes in perfect symbiosis on life's path, and sometimes headed in totally opposite directions. Aquarius and Libra are two other serious contenders in the love stakes - easy-going, fair and non-judgemental.

Life Love Money The Year Ahead for Sagittarius

When midnight chimes on New Year’s Eve you can raise your glass to a 2017 of gradual improvements - gradual being the operative word. Saturn is on the final lap of its transit through your sign so some of the blockages and disappointments of the past two years will be replaced with progress and achievement. Patience is still required, though, and more than once you face the difficult task of knowing when to give up and when to continue your efforts. Trust your instincts. Collaborations and friendships are areas of growth, and although money should not be thrown around, this is a premium year for starting entrepreneurial enterprises. The full moon of the 9th June, the Jupiter-Uranus opposition of 3rd March and 28th September represent the power points of the year - liberation and opportunity being your buzz words.

The great plus about a Saturn transit is that it helps you “settle down”. Your fear of commitment is muted and your independence less essential. So there will be more Sagittarians than ever setting the date in 2017. However, in the process of acquiring Saturnian gravitas you seem to have crushed the fun out of your love life, and may have found more fault with partners than is strictly justified. Whether you are single and seeking or in a long-term union, finding the joy in shared interests and activities and bringing joy into your partner’s life is the route to your own happiness, and essential to a relationship’s prosperity. Early June, late July and December are important periods for love and what happens at these times should prove to you whether you have found what you are looking for or the quest must go on.

A live-for-today philosophy is not really suited to these times. You have to keep an eye on the future when it will be super-important to have reserves in terms of money and resources. In 2017 you should be thinking how to maximise your talents whether you acquire extra skills, invest in your own vision or top up earnings with a second job. You need good insurance and safety nets. People are already taking you more seriously and considering you for top positions, and if not, you need to push more. Property matters continue to have a Neptunian theme to them, so if you’re not planning to live near water or build a swimming pool you must have water-tight agreements when buying or selling or investing in property.
