December 20 Zodiac Birthday Signs – Receptive and charming, you are a gracious and enchanting Sagittarian with an engaging personality. Cooperative and helpful in group endeavors, you offer emotional support and encouragement to those you befriend. As an idealist with strong humanitarian inclinations, you may be drawn to devote yourself to a cause or a vocation.

As an impressionable romantic, you can have deep feelings that may be a source of inspiration.

Compassionate and charitable, you enjoy mixing with different people, as you seek harmonious relationships. When you discover something inspiring that you can really enjoy, you are willing to dedicate yourself and work extremely hard.

Your Secret Self
Highly sociable, you need people and can be generous, kind, and magnanimous. Seeking compatible and sympathetic relationships with others, you can be an excellent friend or companion. Being proud and dramatic, you do not always reveal your extreme sensitivity, as you like to be in control; if you become hurt, you may have to avoid playing the martyr or feeling sorry for yourself. This same sensitivity, however, can also make you highly intuitive, and if it is developed, it can give you access to higher or more profound levels of existence.
A permanent youthful quality combines well with your sense of loving to keep you in touch with your joyful inner child. This playful quality may be expressed through art, music, writing, and drama, or it may enable you to delight and entertain others. With your wonderful imagination, dynamic emotions, and natural compassion, you have the ability to lift people’s spirits and really enjoy life.

Love & Relationships
Your need for emotional stimulation shows your powerful feelings.

Since you are willing to make sacrifices for those you love and cherish, you need to take your time to find a suitable partner. Youthful and enthusiastic, you like to be spontaneous, but by becoming strongly attached to partners you run the risk of getting overly serious. This may sometimes prove to be a costly and unnecessary heartache.
