Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, a planet that is symbolically associated with characteristics such as temperance and relaxation. He is connected to the fire element, which represents an active energy and often expresses itself spontaneously. The variable fire sign is ruled by expansive planets, and its symbolic center is associated with the principles of exploration and development. Sagittarius is associated with the seasonal transition from autumnal humidity to the dryness of winter.
This change is also a characteristic quality of the Sagittarius – the instinct for constant change. This also relates to his passion for travel and philosophy. This compels him to maintain social contacts, meet new people, and explore other cultures. People born under the zodiacal sign Sagittarius have a positive outlook on life and therefore have a lot of energy to make their ambitious goals a reality. Their natural idealistic values help them to compartmentalize any suffering or disappointment. Sagittarius is known as honest, generous, and genuine contemporaries. He combines loyalty and independence perfectly. He is fiery, sincere, and straightforward in love, but a little on the conventional side when it comes to his sexual nature. If he experiences heartbreak, he is often unable to acknowledge his own failures. A Sagittarius is troubled by his light temper, as he often tends to get het up over little things. His impatience means that he often stumbles on projects and lose track.
Sagittarius will get along especially well with the zodiacal signs Libra, Aquarius, Aries and Leo.
Libra brings balance to the constantly active Sagittarius. At the same time, he prevents boredom from arising, which can be particularly interesting for a Libra. While Libra may calm the pace of Sagittarius, the Sagittarius helps the Libra out of its indecisiveness. Both star signs therefore complement one another excellently.
The level-headed Aquarius keeps the relationship with a Sagittarius in balance. They share a love of adventure and a need for freedom. They live out their fantasies and hold stimulating discussions. Both signs of the Zodiac are characterized by loyalty and open-mindedness.
Sagittarius shares a zest for life and activeness with Aries. Shared activities out in the open can bolster a relationship between these two star signs. Their explosive characters may sometimes clash, but this will only affect the mood for a short while.
For Leo and Sagittarius, “difficulty” is an foreign concept. Together, they face any life situation with courage and strength of will. Both love their freedom and respect this quality in one another. A relationship between these two signs of the Zodiac is full of passion.
Sagittarius is often depicted with a human upper body and the lower body of a horse. According to mythology, this constellation shows the inventor of the bow and arrow, Chiron. As the first archer, he taught many heroes and sons of gods in his time. His immortality became a disadvantage when he was seriously injured by a poisoned arrow. In order to end his painful suffering, he pled with Zeus for death. Then, he was memorialized as a constellation in the sky.
As the southernmost zodiacal sign, Sagittarius is between Scorpio and Capricorn. It is situated in one of the areas of the Milky Way that is most densely populated with stars. In the tropical zodiac, the sun transits this constellation from November 23rd to December 21st, and according to sidereal zodiac astrology, this happens between December 17th and January 20th.
