[ad]In the comments section of Sagittarius woman only needs Cancer man when she’s lonely, many Sagittarians lambasted the poor Cancer guy with Pisces rising for lying to his Sag ex-girlfriend.
“You see we do always tell the truth (as we see it) for better or worse and we do appreciate the truth in the same way.”
“Sadge women CANNOT be lied to…no matter what.”
“Sagittarius people cannot tolerate a liar.”
Perhaps the truth as Sagittarius sees it is not the same as The Truth. This sign’s ruling planet is Jupiter, the Expander and Exaggerator. When a fact doesn’t support Sagittarius’ worldview, philosophy or theory of everything, the Centaur may just choose to ignore it. After all, the Big Picture is more important than every little detail. And Sag may give some supporting pieces of information slightly more emphasis than others to make her point. She wouldn’t call this “lying,” just “putting things in perspective.”
Is stretching the truth less ethically questionable than outright lying? Sagittarius may not see it as a problem. But then again, Sag may not even be aware that she is leaving key points out of her version of the truth. Nor may she recognize when she is over-emphasizing a minor tidbit that makes her look better. And if she does know what she is doing … well, surely there is a good reason for it.
Sagittarius governs higher education and universities, and there are numerous cases of professors or researchers who fudge the data to help get their scholarly articles into the most prestigious journals. In her arrogance and self-aggrandizement, Sag may prune a few trees to make the forest look better.
