Sagittarius is the half human half horse centaur of mythology. Sagittarius is represented by the symbol of a bow and arrow and is also referred to as the Archer. Sagittarius is the skilled healer whose higher intelligence forms a bridge between Earth and Heaven.

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.

The EASTmeetsWEST Astrological Personality Portrait – Combined Signs

The EASTmeetsWEST Personality Portraits are meant to enhance the full potential of our lives by first revealing our basic natures, and then addressing shared compatibilities and traits.
