Sagittarius, The Archer

An outgoing Fire sign, Sagittarius is sophisticated and intellectual--at least until they find the keys to the minibar. Sagittarius people are gluttons with giant mouths that they use not only for eating and drinking (which they do a lot of), but also for judging others, preaching, and showing off.

November 22 - December 21

With a big mouth and big dreams, Sagittarius enthusiastically gallops towards the future, racking credit card debt all along her merry way. Half human and half beast, centaur Sagittarius always has a justified and philosophical reason for her sometimes-brutish behavior and her always—blunt way of communicating.

An outgoing Fire sign, Sagittarius is sophisticated and intellectual—at least until they find the keys to the minibar. Sagittarius people are gluttons with giant mouths that they use not only for eating and drinking (which they do a lot of), but also for judging others, preaching, and showing off. They can also be incredibly cheesy, and they basically have no shame. Tyra Banks is basically the perfect example of a Sagittarius: Her T.V. show, America's Next Top Model, serves as a platform for her to display her many talents while judging other people.

Sagittarius rules foreign places, higher learning, publishing, and philosophy. Communication and exploration are strong themes relating to Sag, one of the Mutable signs (Mutable signs end a season, in this case fall). Sagittarian people usually feel more at home on an airplane than anywhere else.

The tarot card associated with Sagittarius, ironically, is Temperance—without moderation, Sagittarius would never be able to get up for work in time. The deeper meaning of the Temperance card relates to the blending of opposites, which is Sag's function in the zodiac wheel. Sagittarius takes the information collected by the first Mutable sign, Gemini, after it's been analyzed and fact-checked by meticulous Virgo, the second Mutable sign. It then unifies the concepts, allowing them to become part of a greater whole.

Sagittarius rules the hips, because really, what the hell else could a sign that's half-horse represent? Jupiter, the planet of growth and expansion, is the ruler of Sagittarius: they both are philosophical and larger-than-life energies. Sagittarius is a generous energy, and the concepts of Thanksgiving and abundance are clear in Sagittarius's jovial nature.
