SAGITTARIUS (22 November – 21 December)

The name Sagittarius is Latin for Archer. Sagittarius is the largest constellation in the Southern Hemisphere and the 15th largest constellation overall. The constellation has many bright stars and is very visible with the naked eye. The Archer is always on the hunt for the Scorpion with his arrow eternally aimed at Antares, the heart of the constellation of Scorpio. As is the case with all of the Zodiac constellations, Sagittarius was recorded in the 2nd century by the Greek astronomer Ptolemy.

The sign of Sagittarius is the Archer-Centaur, half man half horse. In the physical realm the up pointing arrow glyph represents the moving mobility of the loins, thighs and upper legs. The arrow head represents the sharp focus with which a Sagittarian can project or channel his or her energy. It further indicates the access that a Sagittarian has to principles of higher mind which makes them naturally suited to philosophical, theological, legal or counselling kinds of work. The typical Sagittarian seeks out a practical philosophy that can be applied at every day level that engenders social growth and harmony.

The upturned arrow is also symbolic of Sagittarians’ desire to reach ever higher and strive ever farther always looking for something new and exciting to add new dimensions to their life. The sharp point of the glyph also represents the outspoken nature of the Sagittarian to the point where there words can be cutting sharp and at the same time blunt and impactful.  It is their absolute zeal for truth that makes them say exactly what they are thinking with no holds barred.

The cross bar at the bottom of the arrow stem represents the struggle and diligent work and commitment that is required of them to liberate themselves from their lower nature and temptations of their base desires and excessive appetites. It is the same fiery intensity which drives them to pursue human and social understanding that often leads to their lustful exploration of their sensual nature.
