Expanding your horizons

by Serenity Chappell

The 9th Zodiac sign

Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the Zodiac. It follows Scorpio in the Zodiacal line-up. As a rule, the range of Sagittarius covers the time from November 22nd until December 21st. It is a time of expansion, growth, and intellectual development.

It is associated with higher education, the study of foreign ideas and concepts, the codification of philosophy into ethics, principles, legislation, and religious dogma. Sagittarius is involved with writing, publishing, lecturing, and "preaching."

The sign of the centaur

The Zodiacal symbol for Sagittarius is the Centaur. Sagittarius is the Mutable Fire sign. Fire signs are charismatic, courageous, managerial, and confident. Mutable signs are associated with flexibility, adaptability, and invention.

They deal with life's problems by making compromises, adjusting to their new situation, and being able to modify themselves and their responses to fit the change in circumstances. Sagittarius natives combine these qualities into characters that are intellectual, eclectic, and able to incorporate new knowledge and "foreign ideas" into more workable and inclusive social opinions.

The Mutable Fire Sign

The other Mutable signs are Virgo, Gemini, and Pisces. The natural style these signs take in their approach to life can bring challenges to their relationships with Sagittarius. The other Fire signs are Aries and Leo. Common values and similar preferences in habits and ambitions help these signs find an easier, more natural compatibility with Sagittarius.

Traditionally, Sagittarius is compatible with Aries and Leo, other Sagittarians, Libra and Aquarius. Libra and Aquarius bring supportive and complementary qualities that can enhance their relationship with Sagittarius.

Partners & others

On the other hand, a match between Sagittarius and Virgo or Sagittarius and Pisces carries special challenges ... and a relationship between Sagittarius and Gemini will require well-defined "territories" for each partner ... and a constant willingness to compromise on many issues, for these two signs often hold to different values. As you can see, Gemini / Sagittarius relationships can be kind of a mixed blessing.

Physically, Sagittarius rules the hips. The ruling planet of Sagittarius is Jupiter. Sagittarius is associated with the color hunter green. The starstone (not the birthstone) assigned to Sagittarius is the topaz.
