Sagittarius is undoubtedly one of the most positive of the star signs. You were born under the ninth sign, which is ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter’s traditional name was Jove, hence your jovial attitude.
You’re extremely confident in whatever you do. Being one of the luckiest signs, fortune seems to favor you, whether you plan things or not. That’s also the reason you don’t mind taking the odd risk or two. You feel as if you can’t possibly lose. This almost cocky attitude is something that attracts people to you.
You’re also very enthusiastic, and this is contagious — people can’t help but feel the same way in your presence.
Because people like you so much, they want to help you achieve your goals. But sometimes your life objectives are colossal — those arrows seem to shoot much further than the eye can see. Your philosophy is to bite off more than you can chew and then chew as fast as you can.
People around you will sometimes feel that you’re overly ambitious, and that your aims are pie in the sky. This is not likely to change you: you’d always rather aim high and take on the adventure of life than get to the end of the road regretting that you didn’t have a good go at making your dreams come true.
One of your primary lessons in life will be related to this. You will need to learn that there are limits to what you’re capable of, and how to recognize them. Making sure your goals are actually practical enough to be achieved is another side of this one.
You have a great sense of timing, and know just when to make your move. This is because Sagittarius also governs knowledge, wisdom and spirituality. You know you can trust your gut feeling, so call on it when you need it.
Personal growth and understanding is a key aspect of your personality. You hate the idea of waltzing blindly through life without understanding — or finding — its meaning. This seems like a bit of a contradiction, because you’re quite a party animal too, but you do have this deeper side to your character.
So you’re constantly looking for meaning in your life, trying to figure out what makes the world tick, and planning and dreaming about how you can extract the maximum benefit from your time here. This is vitally important to you, so you’ll go to great lengths to find what you’re searching for.
Your totem, the Centaur, which is half man and half beast, describes you and the way you live your life perfectly. The Centaur has a bow and arrow and is aiming at the sky. This is you to a T. High ambitions.
Because you are so positive, you see the possibilities as endless. You never take no for an answer, and you always see the cup as half full, not half empty. Adventure is your second name, and you will have a strong desire to travel and seek out new experiences. Visiting different countries and exploring diverse cultures will add to your all-round happiness. This curiosity also comes with a dose of restlessness, though.
You have a genuine interest in getting to the truth and be part of whatever environment you’re in, but you are easily bored if the mental stimulation is missing. This is especially true when we put ‘Sagittarius’ in the same sentence as ‘relationship’.
Lots of people don’t get where you’re coming from. You’re serious about relationships, but you need a ton of stimulation and variety to keep love alive. You love to flirt and show off, but you need to be careful with this — if you’re in a relationship it will cause problems.
You love freedom, and this applies to relationships, your family situation and your work: you hate anyone tying you down. It’s as if you’re Peter Pan and want to stay forever young and free. You’ll need to balance this passion for independence with some responsibility and commitment sooner or later.
You’re a gambler in life, with money as well as with relationships, but you always seem to land on your feet. Even when you lose, which you do from time to time, your light-hearted and optimistic nature means you believe you’ll get it together again soon, without any trouble. And strangely, that’s usually true.
Your independent and free nature, though it’s one of your biggest assets, could cause you some difficulties. You are likely to expect everyone you come into contact to give you the freedom you want. People around you have to learn that this is an absolutely basic requirement for you.
At work, if you’re not allowed to make choices about how you do your work, you won’t work at your best. You rely very much on yourself, and if your employers give you a free hand, you’ll do great work — people will see this side of your personality at its best.
We said earlier that Jupiter is psychic, and that you have keen foresight. That sixth sense is behind many of the decisions you make, and the more you trust that higher power, the more rewarding your life will be. Your decisions will usually be correct.
Overall, you see life as a challenge, but also as a grand adventure in which you must play your part fearlessly. Nothing much will hold you back, and even when the odd adversity arises you’ll see it as part of your learning curve and accept it with a smile.
THREE CLASSES OF SAGITTARIUS
November 23 – December 2
Born between the 23rd November and 2nd December you are a true Sagittarian and will exhibit the traits mentioned here in full. Always optimistic and ready for an adventure, life will be full of pleasure and unexpected good fortune.
December 3 – December 12
If your birth date falls between 3rd December and 12th December fiery Mars and Aries as well as Sagittarius rule you. You are a spicier and more hot-tempered class of Sagittarian and are always on the go but can also get yourself into hot water with your impulsive nature. Physical by nature, sports will be an important component of keeping yourself stable and peaceful.
December 13 – 22
The third group of Sagittarians born between the 13th and 22nd December are co-ruled by the Sun and Leo. The majestic royal solar energies endow you with an incredibly strong sense of self and also the likelihood of tremendous success personally and financially. You will also develop a more spiritual attitude.
BORN ON A CUSP?
Sagittarius – Scorpio Cusp
Being born on the borderline of the star sign before you, or after you, means that you have some of the qualities from that sign. This can be a subtle effect on your personality and character and you may have heard people mention that they are not “typical” of their sign and it is likely he or she will be a cusp baby.
If you are born on the borderline of Sagittarius and Scorpio, i.e. between the 22nd and 27th November, this has the impact on your personality of making you rather intense. The influence of Scorpio on the Sagittarian cusp baby is that some of your rather laidback attitude is diminished and makes you a bit more forceful than your typical Sagittarian brothers and sisters.
Jupiter, your Sagittarian ruler, combined with Mars and Pluto makes you a person who thinks not just big, but HUGE. There is no challenge too big for you to handle and in fact you thrive on tension – filled moments where you can shine by proving that you can cope with the pressures and show how capable you really are.
You are a ‘big picture’ person Sagittarius and have an almost unshakeable belief in yourself and your capabilities. You are able to create the life you feel you deserve and have tenacity and willpower that will put others in the shade, even other Sagittarians.
As both Scorpio and Sagittarius have intuitive powers, this gives you an edge in understanding human nature and the ability to manipulate the circumstances to your own benefit. As well as this you have an incredible sense of timing that enables you to capitalise on opportunities as and when they present themselves. You waste no time in achieving whatever success is put in front of you.
The combination of Sagittarius and Scorpio in your nature can cause inner conflicts for you from time to time. This shows up when people cross swords with you as you have a difficult time working out whether you should really wreak vengeance on them, which would be the way Scorpio would handle it, or go down the Sagittarian path of justice, mercy and a peaceful resolution.
You need to understand that in life being quietly assertive is often the best bet. There is no necessity to take things to extreme, whether you are thinking with the Sagittarian or Scorpio intellect.
Teaching comes easy to you and this is in part from the Jovian sign under which you are born. You can lead others to a sense of self – understanding with your wealth of experience and often, much of your knowledge is gained from your personal experiences rather from the words of others in book form. You have a wealth of personal and often humorous anecdotes that also serves as knowledge to others.
Sagittarius – Capricorn Cusp
If you are born between 14th and 21st December you will have the Sagittarian/Capricorn influence. Unlike the previous Sagittarius/Scorpio blend of energies which makes for a rather intense and aggressive individual, you will be much more reticent and more conservative.
Individuals born on this cusp are likely to be a rather toned down version of the usually exuberant and enthusiastic ‘take the world by the tail’ type of Sagittarian. You will more than likely be cautious and prudent but at the same time you will love life but not make decisions quite as impulsively as the ‘typical’ Sagittarian.
You have a strong sense of security and like to hold your dollars more tightly, which is not a well – developed trait in most Sagittarians. They are more ‘easy come, easy go’ and think that tomorrow will take care of itself – somehow.
The ruling planets of Jupiter and Saturn, which rule Sagittarius and Capricorn respectively, are diametrically opposed forces in nature. This has the influence of making your personality move up and down from extreme highs to very flat lows. Your lesson in life will be to find the happy medium, and if this can be achieved you will experience life in a whole new way.
Although Sagittarians are trusting of others, with the impact of Capricorn on your temperament, you may hold back a little more until you get to know them better. Until you are comfortable with them you won’t reveal too much about yourself and will keep them at arm’s length.
Capricorn may make you overly concerned with money, thereby keeping the carefree side of Sagittarius at bay. This could cause conflicts by feeling guilty about not working hard enough or not having enough money as opposed to wanting to be free with your cash.
