The Sagittarius Personality: The Archer (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

The Sagittarius in the cubicle next to you is likely planning their next adventure. It is in the Sagittarius’ nature to do this while exploring the meaning of their lives. Members of this zodiac are optimistic, fun-loving, and candid. They relish the newness of novel experiences and can carry an engaging conversation like few others.

What Are the Best Career Paths a Sagittarius?

The Sagittarius has qualities that can help and hinder in the workplace. Professional strengths of this sign include optimism, generosity, creativity, and open-mindedness. These positive traits lend themselves to a career path in Sales, Marketing, Arts and Humanities, or Public Service.

Sagittarians can excel in these career paths, but must also remain aware of shortcomings that can weaken professional goals and relationships. For example, Sagittarians have strong opinions and often share them with little tact. In professional settings, this brutal honesty may not translate well and can cause others to believe that the Sag does not work well with others. They can also be impatient, and overly focused on being right. These traits can hinder the Sagittarius’ ability to create and maintain strong work ties, communicate effectively, and demonstrate the professional maturity necessary to take on leadership roles, and so they must be mindful, and lean against these tendencies.

What Is a Sagittarius Like in the Workplace?

No matter the occupation, you can count on a Sagittarius to liven up any work environment. This is especially true if the Sagittarian is in a work environment that complements their personality, such as a field-based role or remote work opportunity. Sagittarians enjoy these kinds of work environments because they thrive on flexibility. This zodiac sign is perhaps the most adventurous, rebuffing anything (or anyone) that threatens to hold them back from exploring numerous paths.

Sagittarians may find it challenging to conform to mundane work environments, be tactful during difficult conversations with colleagues or clients, and completing work that the Sag does not believe to be meaningful. However, The Sagittarius cna combated these tendencies by taking on volunteer work that fulfills unmet needs, communicating clearly with the manager to ensure they are aware of how the Sagittarius is best engaged at work, or seeking out ways to incorporate more fitting responsibilities into the job description (i.e., signing up to help a different department with a special creative project).

If given enough flexibility and freedom, the Sagittarius is likely to make great strides in the workplace. Their sturdy optimism helps to keep even the most challenging projects on track and their outgoing yet reasonable nature makes them great candidates for leadership roles.
