The Sagittarius Employee - Personality and Characteristics

Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the Zodiac calendar and includes those born between November 22nd and December 21st. Fun-loving and open-hearted, Sagittarius men and women also come with idealistic and brilliant minds – all reasons which make it great to have them on your team.

A strong streak of optimism

Sagittarians are nothing if not optimistic. You can trust them to see the brighter side of things, no matter how gloomy or hopeless external circumstances appear to be. So when on a rainy Monday morning, no other employee has a pleasant smile for you, your Sagittarius will breeze into the office bidding a cheerful hello to everyone and cracking goofy jokes, all of which are bound to lift up the gloom. Best of all this positivity of a Sagittarius is hugely infectious and with the Archer around, you can be sure almost all your other workers will be motivated to action. So while this innate optimism might not materially contribute towards inking that lucrative contract, it definitely helps to create a lighter, happier and thus more productive environment at the workplace.

Highly energetic

A Sagittarian is a bundle of crackling energy, hardly surprising considering that the ruling element of the sign is fire. Like another fire sign the Aries, the Sagittarius worker will love being in the thick of action and with lots happening around him/her. So you would do well to place your Sagittarius in appointments which require an active bouncing of ideas as well as the gusto to put them in action. Unlike the cautious approach of a Taurus or the slow methodical processing of a Virgo, a Sagittarius employee when presented with a task will come up with a flutter of ideas, galvanize everyone around him/her with cheerful optimism and make sure the job is on its way to getting done. In fact Sagittarians have incredible stamina and can keep hopping from one activity to another when other stout-hearted guys can carry on no longer.

However a potential problem with their brisk, energetic natures is that Sagittarians tend to get quickly bored. In fact one of the worst ways you can occupy a Sagittarius worker is to put him/her in charge of the book-keeping or confine them to the drudgery of a desk job. Rather ensure that your Sagittarius has enough activities to keep their energetic minds occupied or they can get lose interest quite soon and can become moody and irritable.

Idealistic bent of mind

Despite sharing the love of action and their buzzing energy, what differentiates a Sagittarius from an Aries is the former’s strong idealistic nature. Issues like justice, fair-play and truth usually matter a great deal to Sagittarians which is why you will rarely see an employee of this zodiac lying and cheating their way towards wrangling a business deal no matter how profitable the deal or how fat their own commission. They would not only disdain such petty actions in their own professional lives but when they come across it in others, would be quite likely to point out and protest such low dealing. Because of their innate idealism, Sagittarians are usually found in humanistic professions like teaching, charity, journalism, publishing, health and hospitality. Their expansive hearts and positive outlook are ideal for touching a chord with the less fortunate and those that have been denied their dues. It is this combination of energy and idealism which is one of the most attractive aspects of the Sagittarius personality and ensures that they make their mark in whatever profession they choose even if it not always a materially successful one.

Brilliant intellect

Despite their bent for idealism, a Sagittarius is not all about good intentions and no substance. Their buzzing energy and innate optimism is strongly backed by a brilliant mind which is capable of looking far beyond the superficial and deep into the things that matter most. The Sagittarius intellect is unlike the Scorpio which can find intriguing ways to solve seemingly intractable problems or even the Aries bent for shooting up fiery, creative ideas. Rather the Sagittarius can see into people and situations with empathy and come up with solutions that conform to the spirit of justice, humanity and progress. Hardly strange when you consider the fact that the symbol of this zodiac is the Centaur – half-man and half-horse. In ancient Roman mythology, Centaurs were intellectuals and teachers which perhaps explains the Sagittarian concern with the really big issues of life. Their minds have far-thinking ability aptly symbolized by the Archer who looks ahead and takes his aim.

Frank and open-hearted

Yet another characteristic that distinguishes the Sagittarius from a fellow Fire sign such as the Scorpio is the former’s frank and open nature. Like the Scorpio, a Sagittarian cannot bear duplicity and hypocrisy in their fellow beings; since the Archer is honest about him/herself, he/she also expects the same kind of transparency from others. However unlike the Scorpion, the Archer is quite bad at concealing his/her dislike of people who lie and dissemble for their personal gain or just as a matter of habit. If you have a Sagittarian in your ranks, you will by now have got quite used to an employee who doesn’t hesitate in calling spade a spade and will blurt out the truth, no matter how discomfiting the fact or who it points against.

In fact one consequence of a Sagittarian’s frank and open nature is their tendency to be rather outspoken at times. Many a Sagittarian employee has perhaps lost out on that raise or promotion because of one unfortunate incident when they said the wrong thing at the wrong time. So despite all that is good and noble in your Sagittarian, beware of placing him/her at the reception or at public relations since most of them lack the tact and diplomacy of a Libra.

In the final analysis, you can rarely find a worker who is more upbeat, energetic, intelligent and open-hearted than a
Sagittarius. Not only is this is a person who has his/her heart in the right place, curiously enough, they seem to attract a lot of positive luck wherever they may happen to wander and sometimes bumble through. Little wonder since Jupiter the King of Gods is the ruling planet of this sign who perhaps makes sure that their zodiac child is crowned with all good and bright in human nature.
