Depending on your zodiac sign, there will be some facts (and some myths) regarding your personality. Well, it’s time to confirm and deny the common myths about the Sagittarius zodiac sign once and for all.

People say many things about the Sagittarius personality that vary depending on who you ask. Some say that Sagittarians are “flakey,” and others will fondly say they are merely “full of wanderlust.” Some will say this zodiac sign is “so impolite,” while others will value their honesty and their “say anything” nature. 

Astrology has become increasingly popular, so it's natural to want to learn more about your zodiac sign and what others are saying about it. So, to help you better understand each sign, here are three myths and facts about the Sagittarius traits that make even non-believers wonder if astrology is real.

Fact 1. Sagittarians have great social skills.

Sagittarius has an above-average sense of humor and tends to be quite extroverted. Both of these things make them the most likely to be the “life of the party.” Sagittarius has mastered party socializing by being witty, funny, and moving around a lot so everyone gets a chance to take in all of their charisma.

Their intense curiosity and philosophical outlook on life make them incredibly interesting to talk to, and their optimistic and generous nature make everyone unable to dislike them.

Fact 2. This zodiac sign is restless.

Sagittarians don’t like to be constrained. Quite the opposite actually! They tend to value things like travel, being outside (preferably, in a different location than they’ve been before), and moving onto the next big experience in their life.

Sagittarius’ curious and energetic nature tend to mean that if this sign is in one place for too long, they are bound to become restless rather quickly. High energy means that staying still for too long is borderline tortuous. Their curious nature tends to make them always want to seek new information and experiences.

Fact 3. Sagittarius values their freedom.

Sagittarius’ don’t like to be held down. This tends to make anything that is too constraining really hard for them. They are more likely to rent instead of buy, move in with a partner instead of getting married, or save money for travel instead of for the future.

Issues with commitment are common with Sagittarius as anything that takes commitment will make them feel as if it has the potential to limit their freedom. Well, they have a point.

Now that you know the true nature of the Sagittarius personality, there are still a few myths to debunk.

Myth 1. Sagittarius can’t commit and will cheat on you.

Sagittarius strives for freedom and has a tendency to be overzealous about life. These things tend to mean that Sagittarius is likely to fall in love fast; however, they don’t commit fast, so this myth can be a problem in communication.

They are also unlikely to want to stay in one place for too long. But this doesn't mean they are doomed to cheat on their significant others and/or be unable to commit if they are the type of person that values monogamy.

If Sagittarius is invested in the relationship and the two are willing to allow Sagittarius enough room within the relationship to not feel like their freedom is being infringed upon, this sign is just as likely to commit and not cheat as the next person.

Myth 2. This sign is incredibly rude.

Sagittarius’ tend to be a bit on the blunt side, but this doesn’t mean they’re rude. On the contrary, Sagittarius tends to be very generous and honest (both of which are not rude at all).  

Generally, people often misconstrue Sagittarius’ tendency to promise more than they can deliver, and their tendency to dismiss clingy people to be rude (or at least outside of social norms). But since when is standing up for what you want and trying to give your all “rude”?

Myth 3. Sagittarians aren’t reliable.

Sagittarius’ tendency to promise more than they can deliver, and their nature of always changing things, can make them come across as unreliable. However, Sagittarius is very generous and can be just as devoted to a relationship as anyone else.
