Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the Zodiac, and the third of the fire signs. You thrive on action and initiative, and like to be out there getting things done. Your ruling planet is Jupiter, the jolly giant of the solar system, and like him, you think big! You do everything on a grand scale, and have enormous generosity of spirit and optimism. Most Sagittarians are athletic, and move their bodies with confidence, both sexes are competitive, but there is a friendly honesty about them which is disarming. Your colour is purple, and your gem stone the turquoise, and health wise Sagittarius rules the hips and thighs so problems here are common. In fact general muscular strains are likely as many of you play competitive sports. You can be quite highly strung too, and probably have problems with or hate your teeth!
Your symbol is the archer or centaur, the only symbol of the Zodiac which isn’t real, which fits in well with your belief that anything is possible. The centaur aims his arrows high into the sky, just like you aim for the stars with your courageous plans. He was also a free-spirited traveller and adventurer, galloping into new worlds, confident and unafraid. Ring any bells?! Sagittarians have great enthusiasm for life, you crave new experiences and anything which broadens your mind, such as philosophy, ethics and religion. Many of you are very spiritual. You love to travel and explore the world, and you need freedom to experience life as an adventure. You will also champion other people’s rights to liberty, you can’t abide injustice, and for this reason you may take an interest in legal affairs.
You have an open, honest approach to life, deception and underhandedness are simply not words you recognise. Sincere and humane, your warmth and cheeriness brightens a room, and you have a friendly, sociable approach which makes you popular. Broad minded too, you probably have friends from many backgrounds. You love to help people and offer advice, and many of you are sporty, thriving on competition and camaraderie. You also like to be out in the open air and a love of horses and dogs is common.
However, it is well known that Sagittarians can be lacking in the tact department, at this very minute Sagittarians everywhere are putting their feet in their mouths at an alarming rate. This is simply your desire to be honest, you are genuinely trying to help and if you find you have hurt someone you are mortified. Because of this you tend to be forgiven for most of your faux pas! You also encounter problems when your implicit faith in your beliefs results in excessive advice giving. You can be something of a moral judge, but preaching to others while having difficulty living up to these ideals yourself can make you seem hypocritical. People can also see you as pompous or patronising, and you can be obstinate and argumentative if you feel your intelligence is being undermined.
Your total blind faith and enthusiasm for your next big idea can make you a touch over confident and impulsive too, sometimes overlooking smaller or practical details. When taken to extremes this energy can lead to an undisciplined lack of restraint,some of you are loud and brash with a careless disregard for convention. Many Sagittarians are always on the move, pre-occupied with their own interests and refusing to be held accountable for anything. This is the sign of the true commitment-phobe! You can be a touch naïve at times too, and need to take care that your trusting openness is not abused by those less honourable. Is that good advice?!
