17 Sag Celebs

The sign is represented by the Archer — shooting arrows across the starry sky — for a reason. Here are some of our fav famous Sagittarius celebrities and how they embody all that Sag is known for. These fiery Archers certainly know how to make the world their own.
1. Tina Turner (November 26)
Tina Turner is a singer who commanded the stage like no woman before her. She first hit the charts in the 1960s, but her music continues to live on with iconic hits like “What’s Love Got to Do With It?” and “River Deep, Mountain High” — songs that earned her the title of “Queen of Rock ‘n Roll.” Turner isn’t just remarkable for her art and music, though. Her resilience and adaptability helped her escape an abusive relationship with Ike Turner, and she reinvented herself through a successful solo career. She once held a Guinness World Record for the largest paying audience for a solo performer, and she won 12 Grammy Awards in her lifetime.
2. Scarlett Johansson (November 22)
Scarlett Johansson has been an actress to admire and love since she played Grace MacLean in 1998’s The Horse Whisperer. She’s recognizable for her iconic role as Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and appeared in famous films like Lost in Translation and Marriage Story. Johansson is proof that when a Sagittarius sets their eye on the horizon, good things are sure to happen. Another way in which Johansson embodies the Sagittarius qualities is in her public persona. She has often been faced with sexist questions and comments in interviews, including inquiries about her diet for films and whether she wore underwear under her costume for Black Widow. In response, she has called out ridiculous queries (“since when did people start asking each other in interviews about their underwear?”), standing up for herself and for all women in Hollywood.
3. Taylor Swift (December 13)
Taylor Swift is an incredibly prolific artist who has transitioned between a wide range of musical genres, from country to folk to pop. Over the course of her successful career, she has topped the charts for more than a decade. Her lyrics are deeply poetic, giving voice and light to universal experiences we all feel throughout our lives. Sagittarius signs are all about living in the moment, and many of Swift’s recent lyrics have reflected big city love affairs and finding freedom in life and in romance.
4. Janelle Monae (December 1)
Janelle Monae is a musician and non-binary icon who is also making a name for themselves on the big screen.

5. Lucy Liu (December 2)
Spy fans know Lucy Liu from her iconic role in Charlie’s Angels, after which she went on to star in the action-centric Kill Bill series. She got her start in the legal comedy-drama Ally McBeal, which ran from 1997 to 2002. Liu is known for doing her own stunts, just one of the many skills she has to offer — and another reason she embodies the fearless Sagittarius sign.
6. Tyra Banks (December 4)
Tyra Banks is one of the most iconic supermodels of the modern day and has brought many new generations into the fray through her work as the host of America’s Next Top Model. A true Sagittarius, she is a model, producer, actress, and writer.

They won’t let anything get them down!
8. Julianne Moore (December 3)
Julianne Moore is an actress known for films like Crazy, Stupid Love and Children of Men, as well as her gorgeous red hair. In 2014, she starred in Still Alice, a film about the process of Alzheimer’s Disease, and she studied the progress and effect of the disease extensively to do the story service. Off-screen, she leads a peaceful and normal life for a celebrity, but her ability to transcend genre and lived experience is no surprise for a Sag woman.
9. Judi Dench (December 9)
Judi Dench is an acclaimed British actress known for James Bond and the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which came out in 2011, and which paints a beautiful portrait of love after 50. Dench is considered one of the best actresses in England and around the world, and has starred in cross-genre stage productions, films, and television shows since her debut in 1957. Her ability to genre hop and her quiet wit and elegance makes her a true Sagittarius. She was once quoted as saying, “I need to learn every day” — which is a trademark Sag mindset.
10. Bette Midler (December 1)
Bette Midler is an actress who can always make us feel, whether we’re crying at the remarkable story of friendship in 1988’s Beaches or laughing at her depiction of a Salem witch. And, of course, she has a voice for the ages that can be recognized anywhere, all remarkable talents true to the Sagittarius sign. On the penultimate episode of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson in May 1992, Midler bid goodbye to a remarkable legacy through renditions of Carson’s favorite songs. Only a bold Sagittarius could evoke such emotions with every performance.
