Sagittarius icon

Sagittarius is the half-human half-horse archer with his arrow aimed directly at the physical or mental object of his attention. In myth, this creature was the ­centaur Cheiron who, sired by Zeus, the king of heaven, became the tutor of Jason, Achilles and Aeneas.

The archer is also celebrated as a great physician, intellect and psychic. Within the realm of both physical and mental power, the archer is second to none. Take the ­mental power of Gemini and combine it with the lusty ­passions of Scorpio and you have Sagittarius. Versatile? Very! He or she can hold several jobs, manage ­a number of projects, take vigorous exercise, and still retain a curious, almost scientific approach to life.

While the archer is in constant search of something, that thing need not be a corporeal item. ­Sagittarians are always looking for the reason why, the motivation, the driving action and the intellectual force behind an act. Above all, this sign seeks personal freedom. Without it the archer cannot foresee, act, understand, or create. This sign moves through life as if on a quest, wild and untamed in youth, wise and giving in age. Sagittarians occupy a unique position in the zodiac, able to both feel and understand the pulse of the most powerful currents of life.

Romance? The archer’s arrow hits others like Cupid’s dart.  Read more details about Sagittarius in our “East Meets West” book series.

Is Your Birthday September 24 — October 23?

If  you were born September 24 — October 23, you are a Libra!Horse-Libra Fine Art Print

Balanced Libra

The most balanced personality, the power of unearthly charm and easygoing stick-to-it-iveness, combined with a deep need to please others, that must describe Libra! Refined, meticulous and thoughtful, yet able to chart a steady course and reach their goals, the Libran is soft, ­likable, yet ­curiously sturdy and resilient.

Indecisive Libra

Maddeningly, he or she can also be indecisive, unable to face confrontation, and so dependent on love as to lose themselves and to be controlled or used by unscrupulous mates and ­children. Above all else, this sign needs trustworthy, symbiotic ­relationships, ones in which order and harmony ­prevail.

Sagittarius Rules the year’s end

Were You Born November 22 – December 21? You Are a Sagittarius

The Zodiac Sign of Sagittarius— November 22 – December 21

Sagittarius rules over that period when the year is ending and the New Year is about to be born. Those born under this sign often show the gift of prophecy, if they can settle down for a second from their independent, free and adventurous spirit.

Sagittarius’ embodiment is the centaur, half horse, and half man. Centaurs are often drunken creatures who are always up to mischief and no good. The exception was Cheiron, a boy-colt, raised by Apollo and Diana, who instructed him in civilized occupations, those of medicine, music, archery, gymnastics and other useful arts and sciences. They were pleased with his efforts and hard work and rewarded him with their own gift of prophecy. Growing into horse-manhood he was recognized for his wisdom, grace, and agility and was well known among the gods as a great instructor of their children. While hunting one day, he was mistakenly shot with a poisoned arrow by his good friend Hercules, the hero whose success had earned him immortality and a place among the gods. Cheiron, like all centaurs, was immortal, and Zeus was plagued by the fear that the poisoned wound would torment his beautiful protégé for the rest of eternity. Zeus decided to reward him for his services to the gods and made him the constellation Sagittarius, the Archer, ruler of the ninth house of the Western zodiac.

Sagittarius is enthusiastic and optimistic …
