Daily Horoscope for Sagittarius
Sagittarius the archer
November 23rd To December 21st
The horoscope Sagittarius sign is the Ninth Sign of the zodiac and is symbolized by the Archer, a creature called a centaur which is half man and half horse.
The centaurs were renowned for their wisdom but when they drank they got really mean. Chiron was the oldest and the wisest centaur of all. He was taken in and educated by the gods. After learning all he could, Chiron decided to share his knowledge and tutored the great heroes of Greece. Among his students were Achilles, Acteon, Jason and Hercules.
In a tragic accident, Chiron was wounded with a poisoned arrow by his student and friend, Hercules. Because he was immortal, his wounds only caused him great agony. Chiron gave up his immortality to Prometheus.
To honor Chiron, Zeus set Chiron’s image in the night sky. This is the constellation Sagittarius. The Archer’s arrow is known as the arrow of truth. In mythology Sagittarius was the son of Saturn and Plyilyra who changed himself into a horse to escape his jealous wife Rhea.
Sagittarius is ruled by the Ninth House, which is the House of Religion, Foreign Travel, Higher Education and Philosophy. Along with Pisces, they are also ruled by the Twelfth House, which is the House of Secrets, Sorrows, and Self Destruction. They are the third of the Fire Signs and being one of the Mutable Signs, they are adaptable, balanced and are creative. Jupiter is their ruling planet and it is the planet of optimism, good luck, the higher mind, growth expansion, generosity, honesty, an enthusiasm for new experiences and their freedom and independence to enjoy all of these things. This sign represents wisdom, philosophy and traveling to far off and exotic places.

Sagittarius Birthstone / December Birthstone
A Sagittarius Sun often make great friends in a social setting, and are often quite funny and well liked. Optimism is common with people of these placements. With a high degree of independence, these folks do not like to be tied down. They would far rather have the freedom to explore the world, or at least the world around them, and learn all they can. Each relationship is a learning experience, as is each situation they meet in life, as long as they do not let their own sense of dogma to cloud their opinions.
With this placement, it is important to know that the Sagittarian Sun, especially when Mercury is in Sagittarius as well, often does not use tact in his or her communications. While they can often be relied upon to tell the truth, the truth is not candy coated with savoir-faire. In fact, the Sagittarian can be down right rude, albeit accidental in nature. Another important point is that some with the Sun in Sagittarius can become full of zeal when it comes to their spiritual beliefs. With a hard placement for the Sun in Sagittarius, these folks can be so involved with their personal truth, it can blind them from accepting that other people may have a different faith from theirs. While they want the freedom to believe whatever they choose, if shortsighted they will not extend this freedom to conflicting opinions.
