The sign of Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21):
Sagittarius, the ninth sign of the zodiac, is the home of the wanderers of the zodiac. It's not a mindless ramble for these folks, either. Sagittarians are truth-seekers, and the best way for them to do this is to hit the road, talk to others and get some answers. Knowledge is key for these folks, since it fuels their broad-minded approach to life. The Sagittarian-born are keenly interested in philosophy and religion, and they find that these disciplines aid their internal quest. At the end of the day, what Sagittarius wants most is to know the meaning of life and to accomplish this while feeling free and easy.
It's the Archer that represents Sagittarians, although in this case it's a Centaur (half man, half beast) that is flinging the arrows. Centaurs were the intellectuals of ancient Roman mythology, and Sagittarians are quick to consider themselves their modern-day counterparts. Those born under this sign are clear thinkers, and choose to look at the big picture most of the time. They also like it when others agree with their well-thought-out point of view. The alternative to this, for better or worse, is a Sagittarius who can become argumentative and blunt. That's not to say that these folks are stubborn – in keeping with the Mutable Quality assigned to them, Archers will listen to what others have to say. Indeed, Sagittarians are enthusiastic consumers of information, and enthusiastic in general, in order to get the answers they need. It's also a good idea to give Sagittarians lots of room to explore their world. Once these folks start to feel hemmed in, they'll become impatient and difficult.
Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter. In ancient Roman times, Jupiter was the King of the Gods, and most Sagittarians would say that the royal pedigree has been passed on to them. Sagittarians are generous and just - much like a noble leader. These folks are also expansive in their thoughts, as well as in their approach. Sagittarians are forever reaching for knowledge, understanding and answers. They are outspoken in their beliefs, at times to the point of exaggeration. This may be due to their unflinching optimism. They are also a lucky bunch, thanks to Jupiter's golden glow. They're quick to take a gamble on things, feeling both lucky and smart. While the process of exploration is what fuels Sagittarians (and translating that to others as a teacher and philosopher), they need to be aware of their tendency to procrastinate. Those born under this sign can be quite self-indulgent since things come so easily to them, thanks to their charming and sociable natures. Smart Archers, however, will catch themselves in time to continue their good work.
