Introducing Sagittarius – “I See”
November 22 – December 21
Sagittarius is the 9th sign of the Zodiac and its symbol (or glyph) represents the Archer and the Centaur, a longing for direction and development of the soul.
In Western Astrology, Sagittarius is considered a “masculine”, positive and extrovert sign along with the other five odd-numbered signs of the Zodiac: Aries, Leo, Libra, Gemini and Aquarius.
Sagittarius lies amidst the Milky Way in the brightest part of the night sky and marks the way to the center of our Galaxy.
The Story of Sagittarius the Archer
The Constellation of Sagittarius
There are a couple of conflicting stories about the origin of the constellation of Sagittarius. The most recognized myth says that Sagittarius represents the ancient centaur called Chiron.
Most centaurs (half-man, half-horse) were known to be very unlikeable creatures, often drinking and partying too much and portraying the characteristics of rudeness, thoughtlessness and even promiscuity.
Chiron, on the other hand, was polite, compassionate and intelligent. It is said that he tutored Hercules and became good friends with him. During an altercation with other centaurs, Hercules accidentally shot Chiron with an arrow. After the accident, he was in so much pain that he volunteered to give up his immortality. Upon his death, he was honored with a placement among the stars.
The Ruling Planet of Sagittarius
Sagittarius is ruled by the Planet Jupiter. In mythology, Jupiter is known as the King of the Gods.
Those ruled by Jupiter tend to be enthusiastic, impulsive, independent, lucky and expansive. Jupiter is said to lead Sagittarians to their higher purpose and the discovery of truth.

Sagittarius is a Fire Sign
The Zodiac is divided into four Elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water, which represent the four basic modes of being. Signs that share an Element are generally regarded to be harmonious with each other.
The Element of Sagittarius is “Fire” which it shares with Aries and Leo. These three starsigns are said to be compatible.
The Element of Fire symbolizes energy and a passion for life, but can also manifest itself in restlessness and impatience.

The Qualities of Sagittarius
Sagittarius’ Quality is Mutable
The signs of the Zodiac are also divided into Qualities: Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable. Signs that share a Quality are normally hostile to each other.
The Quality refers to an individual’s basic temperament. They will have unique and prevailing identifying characteristics that remain the same throughout their life. Each of the four Qualities sees their world differently and their reactions to stimuli are different so that any resulting action will be different as well.
The Quality of Sagittarius is “Mutable”
Mutable signs stand for transition and change. Sagittarians tend to transition through the pursuit of higher knowledge, including meeting new people, experiencing new places and learning new things.
Sagittarius (Fire) shares the Mutable Quality with Virgo (Earth), Gemini (Air) and Pisces (Water).
The Positive Side of Sagittarius
What’s to love about Sagittarius?
Sagittarians are forever optimistic! They always see things with a “glass half full” viewpoint. They are known for their enthusiastic spirits.
They are fun-loving and have a great sense of humor. They enjoy meeting new people and make friends easily. Sagittarians love new adventures and learning new things. They tend to be intellectual and well spoken.
If you want the truth about something, ask a Sagittarius! They are honestly straightforward and will tell it like it is.
The Negative Qualities of Sagittarius
What’s not to like about Sagittarius?
Sagittarians can be restless and impulsive. Sometimes they can be irresponsible when it comes to mundane daily responsibilites.
They are honest and outspoken, sometimes to a fault, and can often come across as tactless and crass.
Sagittarius is a Fire sign, causing them to be impatient and quick to temper. Their independence and desire for freedom can make it difficult to form deeply emotional bonds with others.
Sagittarius loves to learn new things and share that knowledge with others, so they can be amazing teachers. However, their restless spirits often make them poor candidates for this very stationary job.
A better career option for a Sagittarius is to find work where they can be their own boss. They do not perform well under pressure or higher authority. They don’t like to be told what to do or how to do it, so being able to make their own rules is important. Sagittarians value their freedom to do what they want when they want to do it, so having a career where they can make their own schedule is crucial to their success.
Great career choices for Sagittarius include: travel and tourism, freelance writing, retail or restaurant management, entrepreneur, virtual teacher or professor, tutor, athlete or athletic coach.
Sagittarius’ Medical Weaknesses
Each sign of the Zodiac has tendencies to specific health problems and weaknesses.
Sagittarius tends to be weak in the hip, thigh and gluteus regions. It is common for Sagittarians to have back and hip problems, especially sciatica and rheumatism.
Because they tend to be athletic and active in physical sports, Sagittarians often suffer from injuries related to these activities. These injuries may cause problems later in life and contribute to problems with arthritis and back pain.
Those born under the sign of Sagittarius may also be prone to poor hair, skin and nails due to an apparent deficit of silicon in their system. This can be remedied by drinking plenty of water, eating a diet high in Omega-3s (fish, nuts and seeds) or by taking a collagen supplement.
