As the Latin adage maintains, fortune favors the bold and for one sign in particular, bold is the only way to be.
In fairness, several signs exhibit risk heavy, caution to the wind behavior; Aries folk will try anything once and love the thrill that comes from fast cars and cheap games of chance, Scorpios take calculated risks to prove their superiority and increase their holdings both emotional and financial, Cancers, Virgos and Libras play fast and loose when it comes to love and Aquarians get experimental in the name of progress seeking and agenda pushing.
The word risk itself comes from the Italian riscare meaning to “run into danger,” and lord knows Sagittarians, arrow aiming optimists that they are can’t help but gallup full tilt into anything that promises intrigue; dark alleys, dubious strangers, stolen cars, secret hideouts and public order crimes.
Free wheeling, free thinking, and free nipping, archers are ever on the lookout for their next grand adventure, great mistake and risk to take.

Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign and consequently, natives like to play with it; putting their hands close to the proverbial stove and the drugs they found on the dance floor up their noses.
Ruled by Jupiter, the planet of luck and levity, the risky behavior of Sagittarians is related to their thrill-seeking impulse and abject refusal to turn down a dare.
The mark of this planet and this sign is more; it imbues natives with the belief that it will all work out, they will always come out on top and should things break bad, the good times, sunshine and hilarity of hindsight are waiting on the other side of risk.
In essence, it’s easier to roll the dice when you have luck riding shotgun in your El Camino, telling you to push the pedal, text the ex and close your eyes.
The road goes on forever and the party never ends with this ilk
Sagittarius rules the ninth house of education and expansion and as such archers view all outcomes, be they favorable or failures as a valuable learning experience.
In this way and with this attitude a Sagittarius never truly loses even when they don’t manage to win.
Examples of risk taking archers who have gambled artistically, politically, chemically and other wise include Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Keith Richards, Ozzy Osbourne, Tina Turner, Frank Zappa, Jane Fonda, Nikki Sixx, Billy Idol and Miley Cyrus.
Moving through the world with big d–k energy and a gambler’s signature swagger.
