4th installment.... Sagittarius

//Astrologogical background:---------------------------------------

Sagittarius is the ninth astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Sagittarius. In western astrology, the sign is no longer aligned with the constellation as a result of the precession of the equinoxes. Sagittarius is classed as a positive or masculine, extrovert sign; its element is fire and its quality is mutable. Sagittarius is ruled by the planet Jupiter.

Individuals born when the sun was in this sign are considered Sagittarius individuals. Under the tropical zodiac, the sun is in Sagittarius roughly from November 22 to December 21. Under the sidereal zodiac, it is currently there roughly from December 16 to January 14.

//Associated traits and qualities:----------------------------------

Astrologers broadly agree that the following are characteristics associated with Sagittarius:

-witty conversationalist -freedom loving / free-spirited
-idealistic / believing -moral -intelligent / intellectual
-positive / optimistic -honest / sincere
-reliable -enterprising / ambitious -energetic
-versatile -adventurous -independent -generous
-temperamental -impatient.

Sagittarius is ruled by the planet Jupiter, not only one of the most important gods in Roman mythology (ruler of the heavens), but also the planet that signifies good fortune in astrology.

As the ninth sign in the zodiac, Sagittarius is associated with the astrological 9th house, which is associated with natural Sagittarius matters - foreign travel and foreign countries and cultures, religion, the law and higher education, all things which seek to expand one's experience, freedom, journeys.


Sagittarius is widely thought to be compatible with same element signs, Aries and Leo.

There are many variables that determine compatibility in astrology, such as birth dates, birth months, birth years, position of a sign within the sun, the moon, the stars, etc. The signs listed as compatible with Sagittarius do not reflect an individual profile or individual reading as interpreted within astrology, but rather reflect a general guideline and reference to compatibility as dictated by variables such as qualities and elements within the Zodiac. Professional astrologers rarely boil compatibility down to just the sun-sign. The branch in astrology dealing with interpersonal compatibilities is called Synastry.


In mythology Sagittarius is often associated with either a Satyr or a Centaur (in the case of the latter, often the centaur Chiron, who taught and tutored various heroes in Greek myth). In Greek mythology, centaurs were adventurous, brave, and wise, but they were also given to brawling and uncivilized behavior. Sagittarius is also associated with the Greek god Zeus and sometimes the Greek goddess Tyche, as well as the Norse god Thor.
