Sagittarius meaning in astrology“No pessimist ever discovered
the secret of the stars
or sailed an uncharted land,
or opened a new doorway for the human spirit.”
—Helen Keller

The symbol for Sagittarius is a centaur archer shooting an arrow. The arrow reveals an enthusiastic quest for knowledge and high ideals. The archer is half man and half horse portraying independence, a love of freedom and an adventuresome spirit.

In this idealistic sign there is a desire for truth, ethics and good moral values. People with a strong Sagittarius influence often have an interest in law, and we can also find counsellors and advisers in this sign.

In this dynamic fire sign, Jupiter likes to share his knowledge with others. This is often a sign for teachers and it is an influential one for philosophers, historians and priests.

People with planets in Sagittarius can be straightforward and direct, and may need to think about moderation and tact in order not to appear too blunt in their interactions with others.
