Were You Born November 22 – December 21? You Are a Sagittarius
The Zodiac Sign of Sagittarius
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, with an open, warm and friendly personality.
