Sagittarius are usually described as optimistic, friendly, outgoing, fun, adventurous, positive, funny, open minded, sociable, non-judgmental, calm people. And although many of this MAY be true. A lot of times they are not and they are prone to be some of the rudest, shittiest, moodiest, stubborn, emotional, sensitive, anti-social people. This is the dark side that some may be fortunate enough to see. (Fortunate enough as many are not luckily enough to encounter a Sag in their day to day life so will never get close enough to see the happy go lucky signs as Debby downers.)
Also a lot of their “positive” signs can be negative dark sides when used in certain situations, which ill come to explain.
Sagittarius are mutable fire signs. Making them the most empathetic and sympathetic of the fire signs. Their mutable nature allows them to be flexible and easily adapt to situations without holding onto the past like fixed signs. They are capable of moving on and going with the flow of whatever life brings. This is why they’re future planners and think long term, rather than right here. How is this a dark side? Their future thinking puts them in positions where they do not appreciate what’s in front of them, people in relationships/friendships with them can sometimes go unappreciated & feel unnoticed because Sag is too busy dreaming about their future. They can end up leaving partners or feeling unfulfilled because rather than appreciating here and now, they’re imagining what their future can be like & sometimes their present partner/situation isn’t in their vision. They can be unrealistic in their vision which can lead to lots of future broken promises, disappointments, lack of commitment & lack of being able to follow through. Once they realise this in the future, they end up coming back, which is usually too late for most people.
Their future thinking and positive optimistic dreamy nature puts them in positions where they have visions of themselves doing something that requires a lot of work & effort. Sagittarius are unable of knowing their limit. The sky is the limit for a Sagittarius. This can lead Sagittarius to either overwork themselves & work beyond their capabilities. They take on too much and can be unable to follow through at times. It’s a problem for people around them and themselves because then they start to doubt themselves & feel useless or inadequate.
Sagittarius have a weird mix of being private yet very open. They pride themselves on honesty, which others would consider BLUNT and sharp tongued. The thing with Sagittarius honesty is usually it is not asked for. People want the truth, but the sugar coated one. Sagittarius gives unfiltered opinions out left, right and centre whether requested or not. This can offend many people and make them feel disrespected. The funny thing about their view on honesty is the hypocrisy that comes along with Sagittarius. 1) They usually can’t handle honesty themselves. 2) They aren’t the most honest people in certain aspects.
1. Sagittarius are actually sensitive. They have a strong Mars influence because of their fire sign nature. They are passionate and emotional, leading them to be easily triggered and react to certain situations impulsively and based on emotion, rather than logic. Highlighting that it is basically impossible to do what a Sagittarius does to you, tell you the raw truth. Although they see it as an admirable trait, they are incapable of receiving it w dignity. They can either react through pretending it didn’t bother them and later on deeply thinking about that comment and feeling miserable and sorry for themselves. Or in a typical fiery nature, they can react through a verbal match between them and whoever hurt them. Not all are easily offended. Some genuinely don’t care, but that is not as often as they make out.
2. Sagittarius are known to tell a few exaggerated or imaginary stories to either spice up their lives, provoke reaction, get them out of something or get someone on their side of a situation. Sagittarius can’t be trusted with details. Anything they can not remember they will try to fill in the blanks. Even if they can remember it, if the situation isn’t as interesting as it was, they will fill in the blanks with something way more mouth watering. They love some tea, even if it is fake. Sagittarius care about fact checking but will prefer the hottest tea over the truest.
Sagittarius temper is something that not everyone gets to see as Sagittarius try their hardest to hide “anger” from people. This is something they fear others seeing as they are embarrassed by that emotion. It looks weak, it makes them feel the other person has won, it makes them feel not in control and that’s something Sagittarius want – control. However when a Sagittarius is angered, they can be unresponsive, impulsive, emotional, confrontational, stubborn and VERY VERBAL. If a Sagittarius is not the physical attack type, they will cuss you out. Harsh words will be thrown at you, in person, online, anywhere they can let their anger out they will do. They will tell their friends, family, lover, anyone! Their aim is to get it off their chest and get as many people to agree and see what a piece of shit the person is that angered them. But it’s over as soon as it started. They are so quick to forgive and forget people can see them as erratic and unpredictable. It also can be selfish because they say and do so much hurtful stuff, it makes it impossible for the other person to just move on from it.
Sagittarius is not as active/sporty/energetic as people make out. If you have lived with or been friends with a Sagittarius, you’ll know how unreliable and lazy they can be. Usually the type to laze around, quit their job, not bother looking for a job, not wanting to attend social outings and school. They hate plans and but hate spontaneity. It makes it hard to live with Sagittarius because they can be lazy with housework and genera day to day things, leaving them till last minute or doing it when they want. Telling them what to do is the worst as it’ll turn into an argument or a stubborn “now I’m defo not gonna do it” situation. In money, it’s annoying as most hate the jobs they’re in unless it’s a hobby they turned into a career & they are not the best with money, so if they have lots of responsibilities, they can kind of be unable to commit or be broke due to their optimistic (I’ll get money somehow) nature which is usually unrealistic and impossible. Stop spending sis. Watch them coins.
Sagittarius love the idea of love, being in love forever (future thinking) with a partner. But can never settle long term. At first things start fiery and passionate. The longer and perfect it is, the more bored Sagittarius gets. They want freedom and no restriction. (If the relationship has that, they’re fine) but jealous partners (although sexy to them), can sometimes be a turn off. This can make them hard to commit or stay in a relationship. Just as you start to love them and let them in. Sagittarius can disappear as fast as they came into your life. Sagittarius hate being suspected of things and wrongly accused, but it can be hard as they are not always honest and can sometimes be very sly. They’re good with words of assurance but actions of assurance is a department they’re slacking in. To end it on a good note, when in love, they are NOT cheats & will likely never even entertain someone. Their attention, passion, and emotion is all for you. They can’t multitask for shit. Let it come naturally. Don’t force a Sagittarius to behave because if they do, they’re an unhappy Sagittarius because it was your choice not theirs.
There are so many more dark sides I wanted to cover but we’d be here forever and I was scared of being bias being a sexy sag and giving them too much talk time.
So the final one I’ll give is their ego. Sagittarius have a big ego. Very confident, very vain, constantly speak about how great they are and whatnot. A Sagittarius favourite topic is themselves. However when a Sagittarius is insecure, they don’t know how to handle it because it is not in their nature. They become bitter, angry, mean people. They mix their honesty and bluntness, with resentment, insecurity and anger and project it onto others. They want others to feel the way they feel. They can sometimes be mean on purpose in order to feel better about themselves. They overcompensate through complimenting things they don’t like about themselves just so other people can think they love themselves or compliment it too. It can come across as miserable & bitter. It’s not a good look at all Sagittarius.
