The Glyph (written symbol) for Sagittarius is the archer’s arrow pointing upward away from earthly troubles, signifying the Sagittarians eternal optimism and high ideals.
Sagittarius is the ninth house of the zodiac and is ruled by Jupiter. Given their positive, fire sign, Sagittarians tend to have luck on their side. Opportunities seem to arise magically when needed. Freedom is important for the Sagittarian, as they refuse to be hemmed in. They love travel and have a great desire for adventure. The Sagittarian soul thrives on sports and outdoor activities for fulfillment. Sagittarians are not moody by nature, but can quickly become bored if life becomes too mundane. While Sagittarians are admired for their honesty, their words can also be blunt and cutting. Sagittarians need constant reassurance that they are “okay” even though they know deep inside that they really are okay. Anxiety is no stranger to the archer, perhaps perpetuated by his or her analytical mind.
One of Sagittarians most endearing traits is their sense of humor. They are quick witted and great conversationalists, but can be a bit long winded at times. Sagittarians are generous and always willing to help a friend in need.
Sagittarians make reliable and trustworthy friends and lovers. They are faithful spouses, but tend to move on quickly if a relationship isn’t working. The Sagittarian man is very capable of cooking, cleaning and caring for the children. However, initially it may be a bit challenging to get a Sagittarian to commit, but once they do, they will be by your side as long as you respect their need for freedom.
Physically the archer’s hips, thighs and lower back are their vulnerable areas. They often have dark, thick hair. They tend to be tall, with long legs and a shorter trunk. Most wear glasses, usually for astigmatism. Sagittarians tend to have small hands in proportion to their overall stature.
Sagittarians are intellectually capable of succeeding in many careers, including politics, law, public relations, administration and teaching. Writing and publishing are also excellent choices for the archer. Many Sagittarians are involved in psychiatry, probably due to their questioning mind.
