Fire & Lore

Sagittarius claims the element of fire. Fire has long been associated with the characteristics of passion, energy, and assertiveness.

Though Sagittarius is undoubtedly one of the most energetic of all the signs, it should not be confused with aggression. The energy of the Sagittarian is fluid, happy, and progressive, not angry or destructive.

In Greek mythology, Sagittarius is represented by the centaur, Chiron, who is often depicted shooting a fiery arrow from a bow. A centaur is half man half horse and Chiron was an admired archer, musician, teacher, and physician.

Chiron was also known as the kindest and most gentle of all the centaurs, which is why Sagittarians have a reputation for being wonderful teachers, guides, and friends.

"Sagittarians crave wisdom. They want adventure. They often fly by the seat of their pants on a whim. A Sagittarian personality will always choose to do things their own way as opposed to following the crowd."

The Sagittarius Personality

Sagittarians are renowned for their need for freedom and independence. They are often in their own world and have an intense desire to explore the world around them. Sagittarians crave wisdom. A Sagittarian personality will always choose to do things their own way as opposed to following the crowd.

Sagittarians crave wisdom. They want adventure. They often fly by the seat of their pants on a whim. A Sagittarian personality will always choose to do things their own way as opposed to following the crowd.

The Sagittarian is an optimistic and enterprising person. They thrive on new ideas and dreams. They are usually well-liked and mostly agreeable by nature, although can be flaky at times. They don't have a tendency to get caught up in emotional drama and are prone to honesty rather than hidden agendas.

A Sagittarian has no time for long-winded arguments or time-consuming problems. They would rather shift their focus to something else.

Sagittarians are also motivated by the newness of things and often get bored easily. Impatience is one of their major weaknesses but for the most part, their sweet and gentle nature will prevail in most situations.

"In love and relationships, a Sagittarius will almost always prefer to let someone leave them to pursue their own path rather than trying to hold onto them."

In love and relationships, a Sagittarius will almost always prefer to let someone leave them to pursue their own path rather than trying to hold onto them. As a Sagittarius nestles within their own sense of freedom, they would never dream of taking that away from someone else.

A Sagittarian is often gifted with the love of knowledge and learning. They also make enthusiastic teachers. They are generous, kind, and positive about life, sometimes leaning a little too far on the hopeful, dreamy side rather than in reality.

A Sagittarian is often very good at board games or cards as they have a lucky disposition.

One of the downfalls to a Sagittarian personality is that they tend to be irresponsible at their worst and often reckless with money. Even though the Sagittarian is generous and giving with money, they are also prone to sudden impulse and often forge ahead without thinking things through first.

Planet, Stone & Colors

The birthstone of Sagittarius is Topaz. This gem is unique in the sense that it comes in a wide variety of colors, including brown, blue, orange, red, purple, and pink—among others. The stone can also reflect different colors in different directions.

The colors that are most compatible to Sagittarius are light blue and purple. These best reflect the optimistic, hopeful, and passionate personality of a Sagittarius.

Jupiter is the ruling planet of Sagittarius. This planet which is the 5th farthest from the sun is also the largest planet which fittingly pairs with the large appetite for life that the Sagittarian enjoys.

The planet Jupiter is often associated with luck and good fortune in the realm of astrology as well as being categorized as a masculine ruling energy.

Sagittarians are frequently described as naturally lucky people as well as having an energetic love of life which coincides with the traits of their ruling planet.

The Tarot Card of Sagittarius

The Tarot card of Sagittarius is The Card of Temperance. This card classicly depicts balance, patience, moderation, purpose, meaning, and contentment. The Sagittarian at their best embodies temperance in life and in relationships.

When the Temperance card is reversed in tarot card reading it brings a meaning of excess, lack of focus, impatience, and imbalance. This is symbolic of how the Sagittarian can behave when they are bored, irritated or have no goals or purpose in life.

The Sagittarian always needs a journey or a mission in order to keep them engaged and their energies flowing correctly. This way, the gentle, adventurous glow of the Sagittarian fire can keep burning brightly on a daily basis.

        Hi, Michelle,

        It is great to meet you and to read this hub. Especially the information about Sagittarians.

        I did enjoy your work and urge you to continue to publish such interesting hubs.

        I wanted to ask you a question and I have never found anyone with the answer:

        My birthday is November 27 and I was wondering if I were a "true" Sagittarian?

        And what harm would it do if I were off in my date?

        Please help!

        Thanks and write soon.

        I have a few Sagittarius friends and this was spot on! I have definitely noticed their adventurous personalities and their need to always be honest and tell the truth, in some situations where most other signs would not. They're always fun to be around and I could never imagine being bored because they're so upbeat and full of life. Nice hub!
