Mythology and Symbology
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 Greco-Roman god Zeus/Jupiter and sometimes the goddess Tyche/Fortuna, as well as the Norse god Thor.[citation needed]

The astrological symbol for Sagittarius has a dual meaning. The first and most common is that of a bow and arrow. The second and less well-known is that of an arrow lifting up a cross-shaped burden: Representing the struggle the Sagittarius faces.

Astrologers broadly agree that the following are the characteristics of Sagittarius: [9] Freedom-loving, extroverted, straightforward, benevolent, ardent, idealistic, sincere, intellectual, knowledgeable, creative, philosophical, broad-minded, sexual, funny and free-spirited. The Sagittarius person is always happy with a good sense of humor, honest, open-minded, truth-seeking, just, fun-loving, athletic, adventurous, expansive, and optimistic. The Sagittarian is known to be blunt and exaggerate, or talk too much, sometimes a know-it-all and over-indulgent, tactless, aggressive, scattered, impatient, pushy, annoying, loud, restless, careless, vain, and rebellious.

As listed above, the Sagittarius has several good qualities, but with a few serious flaws. He/She is seen as having a duality similar to that of the Centaur or Satyr above. The Sagittarius's dual natures, that of the beast (aggressive, rebellious, sexual, free-roaming, etc.) and the higher nature (philosophical, open-minded, honest etc.) are said to be in constant conflict. The day to day struggle of the Sagittarius is represented in the astrological sign, which is interpreted by some to be an arrow lifting a heavy, cross-shaped burden.
