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.
