Monkeys are well known for their curiosity, cleverness and ingenuity and these characteristics were noted by ancient astrologists. In Chinese astrology the Monkey is thought to represent a smart, innovative and fun personality. People born in their year are believed to acquire some of these bright and cheerful traits into their personalities. Sagittarians from Western astrology are usually easygoing and inquisitive. So, the Sagittarian Monkey individual is usually friendly, refined, intelligent and inventive. They often also gain a little of the Monkey's entertaining character and sense of humor.
A Sagittarian Monkey has a cheery disposition that is filled with fortitude and positivity. They are usually intellectual and have a love of books and learning, as this stimulates their inquiring minds. The Sagittarian Monkey likes to use his or her inventiveness in almost everything they do. They have a wonderful imagination, and while they are normally quite down-to-earth people, they can be highly creative. These personalities are fairly sociable, and love to have meaningful conversations. They enjoy the company of others, but they also appreciate time alone sometimes for quiet reflection.
The Sagittarian Monkey is not lazy, but they are very good at taking shortcuts if it is sensible to do so. Their thinking is quick, but not impulsive or irresponsible, and they possess great problem-solving skills. These particular traits and their great sense of humor are all useful and help the Sagittarian Monkey to get through daily challenges without much stress. The realistic and reliable Sagittarius influence adds some composure to the Monkey's lively imaginative mind. This gives these individuals their well-balanced personas, and it often assists them in achieving success in all areas of life. It helps them enormously in getting the most out of friendships and their work and personal relationships.
Settling down with a soulmate may take the Sagittarian Monkey some time, as they are a little bit shy. They do not like to rush into personal relationships, as they prefer to let things happen at a natural pace. Sagittarian Monkeys do not really believe in love at first sight, as they tend to think that feelings grow and develop over time. These people are not very romantic in their outlook, but they are extremely loving and devoted once attached. This is the only part of their life where they will not consider taking the quick route. Conditions of compatibility will have to be perfect before they will even contemplate entering into long-term partnerships.
The innovative personality of the Sagittarian Monkey rarely gets stressed, but it has a tendency to another weakness. This is the proneness to suffer from mood fluctuations occasionally. These dips in their usual positive state of mind will often occur when a Sagittarian Monkey has not eaten for a while or they are over-tired. It can materialize as shortness of temper, or feeling sorry for themselves. As they get older and learn to regulate their eating and sleeping patterns, they may inhibit this character weakness from causing any problems.
