December 17 zodiac sign horoscope

Personality traits of persons born on December 17

The powerful influence of Sagittarius coupled with its governance of Jupiter, the ruling planet, determines the characteristic traits of individuals born on this date. On top of that the actual date on which these people are born, which by numerological meaning is ruled by Saturn, also plays a symbolic role.

Though the union of both astrological and numerological interpretations brings a general view of a person’s traits, their uniqueness is individually specified by other planetary positions that may have an equal or even more powerful influence on someone’s personality and experiences.

Combining both the sun sign and the ruling planet of December 17 is what specifies this person’s personality in its uniqueness from other Sagittarius individuals.

Saturn is the planet of authority, discipline, structure, and form. Therefore its influence on these already competent, optimistic, and passionate people shows in their heightened sense of morality, determination, focus, and the hard-working attitude to life they have.

They are positive and free-spirited, have a creative talent, love nature, and can be fully realistic.

December 17 people’s mind is equipped with far-sight, open-mindedness, and good judgment. They know how to use their common sense well and are often concerned with the bigger picture in life from a philosophical point of view.

Humor is another attribute that these people have, which makes them very charming and easy-going to be around.

Straightforward and bold, December 17 individuals know how to follow their instincts unapologetically and can be unsubtle in their ways.

If this happens in an upsetting situation or when there is a misfortune, these people need to pay attention not to become overly stubborn, blunt, or critical.

Their determined ways can be very progressive and reaching far is easy for them, yet when they aim too high on many things and are left disappointed when things don’t work out it can be momentarily very difficult for them to manage their emotions.

Being perceived as dogmatic or self-righteous is another downfall of their passionate nature that sometimes causes them to set their aims so focused that they become fanatic and inconsiderate of others.

Yet a positive remark worth mentioning is that Saturn enhances their sense of self-responsibility and lessens the tendency for these people to always seek the pleasurable things in life and not put a limit to their desires which can lead to undoing.

Sagittarius people most likely approach their love life in a devoted and passionate manner.

Being faced with their own vulnerabilities is not a problem for them, as long as it is presented as an opportunity for growth.
