If you’re born between November 23rd and December the 21st then you’re a Sagittarius! This winter star sign is the ninth astrological sign of the zodiac and is ruled by the biggest planet in our solar system, Jupiter.
Those born under the sun in Sagittarius are said to focus their energy on growing, learning, and developing as a person whilst always searching for new surroundings to explore.
However, there’s a lot more to being a Sagittarius than just a fearless adventurer. In this blog, discover all you need to know about the Sagittarius zodiac star sign.
The Basics Behind the Sagittarius Zodiac Sign
Here are some quick facts about this fiery star sign to get you started:
Symbol: The Archer
According to Greek Mythology, Sagittarius is a half-human and half-horse centaur named Chiron, who bridges the gap between heaven and earth. Chiron is depicted wielding a bow and arrow and according to mythology, he taught archery to Achilles, a hero of the Greek Trojan war.
Alongside Leo and Aries, Sagittarius belongs to the Fire Trigon due to its location under the tropical zodiac. Fire signs are known for being enthusiastic, vibrant, and energetic.
Ruling Planet: Jupiter
Jupiter is said to be the planet of good fortunes, optimism, abundance, expansion, and the ruler of the heavens.
Turquoise is probably one of the most celebrated December birthstones. The vibrant blue-green gem is said to boost a person’s fortune and help to make communication a lot smoother.
Flowers and Trees
This versatile star sign promotes abundance, something regularly found in nature. Sagittarians are associated with several flowers and trees, including; Mulberry, Oak, Birch, Narcissus, Holly and Dandelions.
Spirit Animal: Horse
With the zodiac symbol consisting of a centaur, it’s hardly surprising that the wild horse is the spirit animal of this star sign – its fast-moving and free-spirited nature closely match that of a Sagittarius.
What are the Personality Traits of a Sagittarius?
Forever the explorer, a Sagittarius is not known for playing it safe. They don’t appreciate being shackled and held back by people who try to prevent their growth and constant movement.
Being a driven and aspirational star sign, they don’t believe in playing it safe to achieve their dreams, although this can sometimes lead to the excellent results, it can often mean projects and tasks are abandoned whilst a new interest takes its place.
Career and Money
Sagittarians are said to be realists, always choosing their solid principles rather than leading with their emotions. It’s not uncommon for those born under this star sign to move around a lot – especially in their career path – most likely due to their unapologetic approach to igniting change in their life.
Money can be a source of weakness for a Sagittarius, as overspending can easily become a way of life. Occasionally, they may take risks with their finances, which can result in disappointment down the line.
Love and Relationships
Sagittarians have an incredible thirst for knowledge and are attracted to those with an intellectual edge. However, when it comes to love, a Sagittarius is not known for commitment. Instead, they prefer the idea of love without the pressure of being tied down, something which can cause friction if they're too constrained by a partner. It’s said that Sagittarius star signs are most compatible with Geminis and Aries.
Life's an Adventure with Sagittarius
Overall, a Sagittarius is a compassionate and kind soul that prefers to take risks and be an explorer due to the urge to be spontaneous in life and not shackled by people, finances or work.
