|Who loves the dim, religious light?
Who always keeps a star in sight??
An optimist, both gay and bright???
It is the Sagittarius!!!
At the heart of Sagittarian
lore stands the centaur Chiron, the figure of philosopher and teacher
within Greek mythology. As a centaur,
Chiron personifies the very soul of Sagittarius.
Here is a symbol of half man,
half horse, portraying the conflict between the philosophical mind and
the carnal instinct of human nature. The glyph represents an arrow slung
in a bow, aiming at the stars. This symbol corresponds with the Sagittarian
ideals of cosmic progress and abundance. The ruler of Sagittarius is
are positive people. They have a bright outlook on life, are
enterprising, full of energy and vitality. Versatile, adventurous and
eager to expand their range beyond the comfortable and familiar. They
enjoy travel and exploring, and their minds are continually searching
for new experiences. They are ambitious, optimistic folk, and nothing
seems to get them down.
idealists, and this seems to keep them going even when there
are disappointments which smash their plans. They have a tendency to
get over zealous when they are interested in something. They are believers,
and what they believe in, they are willing to fight for. They are both
loyal and independent at the same time. They manage to balance both
are usually modest and often spiritual, with strong values. They
like rituals. They are profound thinkers, and are gifted with foresight
and good judgment. They are avid learners, love to initiate new projects
and make great researchers.
quickly with keen minds. They have an expectant attitude and
a penchant for new experiences, which may account for the fact that
Sagittarians are noted for their longevity. They are often intuitive
and original thinkers. Better at adapting than inventing, they work
well in collaboration with others. A strong-will and good organization
ability combined with their other talents usually bring any project
they undertake to a successful conclusion.
They are generous by nature, but
are quite resourceful in caring for and balancing their resources. Sagittarians
are ardent, sincere and straightforward in relationships. They are generally
conventional and in control of their sexual natures.In friendship they
are reliable, and can be counted on.
Because of their independent nature,
maintaining a close personal relationship is difficult. They prefer
a solid home base, but as a place to return to when they have completed
a particular travel venture. They have a compelling need to feel free,
and sometimes make this choice at the expense of even a family.
Main positive traits:
Honest, open-minded, straight forward, ethical, charitable, generous,
good sense of humor.
Sagittarians have a quick temper
and a biting tongue, often speaking before giving forethought to the
full effect of their words. Their rage may pass quickly, but the stinging
of their comments often remains. They are quick to jump on inadequacies
of others while expecting full recognition of their own efforts. they
can be exacting, and inconsiderate in their work life, while boastful
and extravagant in their private lives.
There is also a side of the Sagittarian
that is quite superstitious. Sagittarians can also be very restless
people wanting to know everything that is going on around them and wanting
to go everywhere. They become bored when they are surrounded by people
or situations they are not interested in. They have a tendency to be
unconcerned or seem unaware of the thoughts and feelings of others.
Main negative traits:
exaggerating, blunt, impatient, pushy, tactless, talks too much.
Sagittarians are versatile people
and can be found in a number of professions. They
are by nature teachers and philosophers. Nothing is better play to
a Sagittarian than expounding on the moral principles, laws
and ideas that explain the universe. Through these
traits they serve well as theologians or scientists.
They are also suited to the law,
politics, public service or social administration. Being natural communicators,
they do well in public relations or advertising. Many Sagittarians will
be found in jobs that allow them to exercise their natural desire to
see the world.

Advise for the Sagittarians
The Sagittarius love of sports
often leads to an indulgence in dangerous pursuits. Many centaurs
are prone to accidents due to a tendency of taking too many risks.
They are more inclined to suffer from rheumatism and in their latter
years by sufferings of the nervous system.
Origins in Mythology
Centaurs belong primarily to
Greek mythology. They combine a savage and untamed animal nature with
an ancient wisdom of human culture. The wisest, and in some references,
oldest of the centaurs was Chiron. Rather than selfishly retain this
knowledge, Chiron tutored the great heroes of Greece. Among his charges
were non less than Achilles, Acteon, Jason and Hercules.
In a tragic irony, Chiron was
wounded with a poisoned arrow by his student and friend, Hercules. Being
immortal, the centaur's agony was unbearable. Chiron forsook his immortality,
and gave the mantle to Prometheus. Zeus set Chiron's image in the night
sky to honor the memory of this noble teacher. To this day we recognize
his form as the constellation of Sagittarius.
