Sagittarians live large.

Flirtatious fire signs, Sagittarians are high-energy thrill-seekers ruled by Jupiter — the planet of luck and expansion. Ruling-planet Jupiter instills a yearning for mental expansion and an insatiable appetite for adventure — both of which lead Sags to pack their bags any chance they get.

Sagittarians never doubt that the odds are in their favor, possessing an alarming, though admirable, sense of optimism towards even the bleakest of circumstances. They thrive in philosophical discussions, always earnest to understand any new, opposing or taboo point-of-view.

Symbolized by the archer, Sagittarians are driven by their desire to discover the new, the interesting and the worthwhile experiences in life. Whatever or wherever those might be.

A strong case of wanderlust prompts Sagittarians to spend much of their time living out of their suitcase, but even so — there’s no place like home, is there? The ideal design for a Sagittarius space is one that highlights their world travels and the many souvenirs accrued along the way.

Large, floor-to-ceiling windows with sweeping views prevent Sagittarians from feeling caged-in or antsy.

Airy white, blue or grey walls will work double time, making the space feel larger while showcasing the vibrant, velvet throws, textured rugs and one-of-a-kind artifacts dispersed within their home.

For wine, Sagittarians should opt for a light, dry white that pairs with just about anything. They are always experimenting with new flavors, after all. Our pick to pour? Riesling.

How to Set Up a Cheese Plate

Once all condiments, pairings and cheeses have been removed from their packaging and properly prepared for presentation, arrange them all together on an elevated vessel above the crackers, bread and condiments. This will allow the variety of cheeses to stand out as a culinary feature and provide easy access for guests. Serving Tips: Set out a separate knife for each type of cheese. Label each cheese with suggested accompaniments. Keep more pungent cheeses on a separate plate so they don't overpower the other cheeses. Take cheeses out of the refrigerator at least one hour before serving; they'll be more flavorful and easier to slice.
