#3: Honest Doesn’t Need to Mean Harsh
Sagittarians love novelty in all things, including their relationships. This means you may often cycle through relationships, friendships, even just your standard movie-night buddies. Being around new people can introduce you to new ideas and exciting hobbies, but don’t forget to keep up your established relationships. Good friends are hard to come by, and eventually, there will come a time when you want to spend time with someone who you’ve known for more than a handful of weeks. However, when you get back in touch with old friends, you may find they’ve been tired of being cast aside for someone newer and shinier. Don’t let this happen to you! Learn to balance meeting new people with keeping up old friendships. Even something as small as a regular text can help these friends feel valued so that they’ll be there for you when you need it.
Honesty is always the best policy to Sagittarians, but these truth drops can sometimes feel brutal to more sensitive signs like Cancer or Pisces. You don’t ever need to lie (you probably couldn’t even if you wanted to), but remember that you don’t always need to say everything you think. Don’t like a friend’s new haircut? Just compliment their outfit instead. Sagittarians are also a very compassionate sign, so channel that kindness when you feel the need to give some honesty that you think might not go down well.
What Does This Mean for People Who Want a Connection With a Sagittarius?
If you’re hoping to date a Sagittarius, befriend one, or just communicate at work or school with Sagittarians, follow the tips below to keep everyone happy.
#1: Don’t Take It Personally
It can sting when the Sagittarius in your life doesn’t respond to texts or cancels plans because they found something they’d rather be doing, but remember, it’s not a reflection on you. Sags just have a relentless need to keep doing new things and expanding their boundaries, and this can cause them to lose sight of how their actions affect others. If you’re feeling hurt or taken for granted, absolutely speak up (see tip 3), but don’t start to doubt yourself or your ability to be a good friend or partner if Sagittarius pal doesn’t want to spend all their time with you. It’s really just how Sagittarians roll.
#2: Expand Your Boundaries
One of the best things about being around a Sagittarius is that they’ll open your eyes to a hundred new things you never would have learned or experienced on your own. If you’re a more cautious sign who prefers a standard routine of watching Netflix on your couch, all this novelty can be overwhelming. While you might feel tempted to retreat back into your comfort zone, resist the urge. You don’t need to go along with everything your Sag friend suggests (you’d likely exhaust yourself) , but agree to one or two things to start that sound fun and only somewhat scary. Your Sagittarius friend will love you for it, and you will probably end up having a great time!
#3: Be Honest About Your Needs
Sagittarians can get caught up in their own heads, but direct honesty is always a great way to bring them back down to earth and force them to consider their actions. Even if it isn’t always obvious, Sags really care about making others happy, and if you tell them something they’ve done is hurtful or frustrating, 9 times out of 10 they’ll make the changes they need to in order to make things right. So tell them how you feel!
