They are free spirits in search of knowledge who cannot stand routine or being tied down.

Sagittarius women are very confident. They are so sure of themselves and what they believe in. The Sagittarian woman is the type to tell it like it is, too. She has a tendency to say very hurtful things in an argument in order to win. She will also be very confident that she will win.

Sagittarius Woman Bad Traits

Although the Sagittarius woman will be very flirty and charming, it’s not always genuine. She wants to be admired and appreciated by everyone, constantly wanting attention from others. Narcissism is one of her worst qualities. She always wants her ego to be fed somehow, in some way. Like most fire signs, she wants everyone to be paying attention to her and to be praising her. 

The Sagittarius woman is also very blunt. She truly has no filter and will say anything, at any time, no matter who it might hurt. Sagittarius women tend to be reckless and careless in that way in more ways than you would expect. Emotionally, she won’t really care about others’ feelings and won’t fully commit to friendships and relationships. Financially, she will handle her money poorly simply because she doesn’t like any kind of long-term investment. Sagittarians can be very flimsy with their money.

Sagittarius Woman Good Traits

Sagittarius women are very energetic and adventurous beings. She is wild and curious about life and the world. Being ruled by the planet Jupiter, she deeply values knowledge, truth, learning, and philosophical ideas. She wants to form connections and learn new things from other people, constantly getting fresh perspectives on life. Optimistic and energetic, she is the type to want to live life to its fullest. There is exciting energy to the Sagittarius sign that influences others to want to have just as much fun as she’s having.

Sagittarius women are pretty good at conversation, always wanting to know about and discuss different opinions, ideas, and world views. She will love to give advice to others, though will be very honest about how she feels. She can be a bit harsh! She’ll constantly want to talk to her friends, family, and partners and will expect them to want to talk to her constantly too. She will enjoy having deep conversations about philosophical topics or anything related to life and the mysteries of the world.

Sagittarius Woman in Love

A Sagittarius woman in love is very confident. Or rather, cocky. She isn’t afraid of rejection and will definitely be the kind of woman to make the first move. She’s not the type to pine for someone from afar — she thinks that makes her look weak. Instead, she will approach the person she’s interested in and try to get to know them. However, just because the Sagittarian woman might be flirting with you doesn’t necessarily mean she is interested in a serious romantic relationship. In fact, she could flee from any potential commitment. She is the type of woman to lead people on and only keep them around for an ego boost.

The Sagittarius woman likes to be independent in every aspect of her life, especially in relationships. So if she’s flirting with you, it might not be too genuine. When she falls in love, you’ll know. As a fire sign, she is very passionate and bold, especially if she’s settled down in relationships! She won’t respond well to clingy behavior — she’ll need to spend time alone. She’ll need her personal space and will want her partner to understand and respect that. If she feels like her partner is taking away her freedom, she’ll probably close off her heart and walk away.

Sagittarius Woman in Sex

The Sagittarius woman could be the type to have more than one lover at one time. She’s not the kind of woman to settle down in relationships unless it’s stimulating and exciting. Or, she just jumps around to different partners because she’s bored and wants something new and fun. Not only are Sagittarius women the type to attract anyone and everyone, but she likes the chase and being able to explore and play around with new people. She will appreciate an intense, fleeting affair and all its excitement and challenges.

However, when the Sagittarius woman is in a relationship, she will be very passionate in bed. She will be a generous lover who genuinely wants her partner to have a pleasurable experience. Don’t expect her to cuddle and talk about her feelings afterward, though. Sex with a Sagittarius woman will be fun and exciting. She’ll love sex and trying new things in the bedroom, especially if it’s passionate and wild. There is magnetic energy to this Sag, with her confident attitude and fun-loving characteristics. She is the kind of woman to take the lead in the bedroom if she has to. She is very confident in herself and what she’s capable of, including sex.

Dating a Sagittarius Woman

At the beginning of a relationship with a Sagittarius woman, she will appreciate the chase. She is self-sufficient and capable of getting the things she wants the most in life, even a potential partner. Sagittarians like her don’t match well with people who are sensitive or don’t understand the kind of personality she has. She’s a very blunt person, in both her actions and words. Sag is also a very casual woman who is overly confident in her flirting abilities. She likes attention just as much as she likes her space and will want a partner — if she wants one at all — to understand that.

Her favorite thing about her relationships is the physical aspect of it all. She’s not really a romantic in the bedroom. She wants a partner in the bedroom who understands that she’s more of a physical lover rather than an emotional one. She wants someone who looks at love as if it were an adventure. Her dream date is doing something adventurous or mentally stimulating, like hiking, playing a sport, or doing a trivia night at a bar. She wants someone who will appreciate her independence and be as independent as she is, too.

Trust With a Sagittarius Woman

Since the Sagittarius woman is a mutable sign, she is very free-flowing. Independence is her thing. With that, she’s not the most reliable person. She’s so inconsistent and always looking for something fresh and fun to occupy her time. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean she’s not trustworthy. When it comes to honesty in a relationship, friendship, or with her family, she is faithful to her actions and words. However, not with any emotional affection.

Sagittarian women assume everything is going to turn out okay and tend to ignore any problems that arise until it is too late. Unfortunately, since they aren’t great at planning ahead, sometimes they can come across as careless and unreliable. They aren’t the best person to run to in an emergency.

Understanding a Sagittarius Woman

To understand the Sagittarius woman is to understand the characteristics that make her who she is, especially her courage and independence. Fire signs, like Sagittarius, aren’t really in tune with the emotional aspect of life. It’s not in the personality of this zodiac sign to want to settle down in a relationship. She’s more of a go-getter. She’d rather go above and beyond to follow her dreams, no matter what, rather than settle down in a relationship and with a family.

This zodiac sign will love to explore new places, especially if she can do it alone. She will want to be independent and maintaining her own personal space. She will also confidently jump from one idea, place, or person to the next. Sagittarius is a seeker of truth (is that why she is so honest?) and knowledge. She is very open to anything that can fulfill her thirst for knowledge, truth, and traveling. She will want her friends and partners to understand these qualities she has. Anyone who tries to tie her down or push her around will immediately end up on her bad side.

Sagittarius Woman Likes and Dislikes

The Sagittarius woman likes adventure. She wants a partner and friend who wants to go into nature on hikes or camping trips or to a beautiful city somewhere across the world. It’s that sense of freedom–and even a sense of danger–that she craves and loves. Sagittarius women also like to entertain. Karaoke, open mic comedy sessions — this zodiac will love to be the center of attention. The spotlight is her friend. She is a pretty optimistic woman with an enthusiasm for life. She believes life is too short to be unhappy and will enjoy being a source of entertainment for others.

The Sagittarius woman does not like to sit still. She is always on the move or wanting to be on the move, going somewhere and doing something. That irritability comes from the nature of her mutable quality, and she can be a bit inconsistent and reckless with that behavior. She also does not like to be pushed around or insulted. With the fire energy, these sun signs are prone to having a bad temper, especially if someone is rude to her or pushes her around. She doesn’t like being told what to do or having to take on responsibilities.

Sagittarius Woman Behavior

Sagittarius women tend to have an intense and dedicated personality. This zodiac sign is very competitive and will do anything to achieve success. If a Sagittarius wants to have more money flowing in or wants to have a successful career, they will do whatever they need to do to attract that. If they want to go on a date with a certain person, they will approach them and ask them out, with all the confidence in the world. With Jupiter ruling and luck on the side of these sun signs, they tend to be pretty successful in their endeavors in life. Sagittarius women are not the type to sit back and relax and wait for things to come to them — they go out and gets it.

Sagittarius women make for pretty good friends. However, they are not necessarily reliable friends. They are the type to want to have fun and enjoy life and not be tied down with responsibilities, commitments, or anything that keeps them from feeling free. Sagittarius women are very honest and blunt and will love to give advice and her brutal opinions, even if no one asks for it.
