Symbolizing the centaur named Chiron, Sagittarius is the zodiac of the beast. It is a constellation that engulfs the Milky Way.
The story of Sagittarius goes on to say that he was accidentally shot by Hercules one day. This was at the time that Greeks worshipped half-horses and horses. Being a masterful archer, physician and a gentleman, above all, Sagittarius offered himself to replace Prometheus as the pain of the poison was insufferable and he was immortal. Seeing the goodness of Sagittarius, Jupiter made him a star up in the sky as a tribute to his bravery.

What is the history of Sagittarius Zodiac?
Although most of you have heard the story of Sagittarius as the Archer, the truth is different based on the civilization. He is a horse in some, human in other and centaur or archer in most. Let’s unravel the real story of Zodiac Sagittarius.
According to the Babylonians, Sagittarius was the God Nergal, depicted with wings, two heads, and strange body parts. He also has a scorpion tale instead of a horse tale, unlike his lower body. The Babylonians believed one of the two heads of Sagittarius was a panther and the other human. He is revered as the forefather of the civilization and chief ruler.
When we dive into the Greek and Roman legends, the story of this zodiac gets tangled more and more.
Greeks believed in a range of tales about Sagittarius. He was often linked with Zeus and Thor, both Gods. The mythology of the centaur comes from the Greek tales that the centaur Chiron, who was the most compassion of the centaurs, changed himself to escape from the possessive demands of his wife Rhea.
He was not like the other centaurs, who were mostly dumb or blindly violent. Chiron was the son of Saturn and Philyra, who was made half human and half horse. He was blessed with intelligence, perseverance, and wisdom such that he even taught Achilles. He knew so much that he was renowned as a doctor and musician too.
After escaping from his wife, Chiron lived alone in a cave teaching other centaurs the wise way of life. One day when Heracles was raiding and killing the centaurs rampaging the area, he accidentally shot Chiron. However, being immortal, Chiron didn’t die but wept in pain. When Prometheus saw the remorse of Hercules in the bellowing pain of Chiron he decided to help the centaur. He raised him from the wound into the sky as a constellation. To this day, you can see the arrow of Chiron aiming at the heart of Scorpion in the sky!
Where is Sagittarius in the Sky?
Seen almost only in the winter sky, Sagittarius is not the Hunter (Orion), but it is the half human half animal zodiac sign. It is not difficult to spot this constellation if you’re looking at the sky in the right season.
Sagittarius falls at 240 to 2700 lying specifically at 234.75 and 270 degrees in the skyward longitude. The sun goes around this constellation from November 23 to December 21 according to the popular zodiac and from November 23 to 27 in the sidereal zodiac sign.
What does Sagittarius Ruling Planet signify?
Every year, the planets that come in conjunction with Sagittarius changes. The ruling planet of Sagittarius is Jupiter, the biggest and the maddest planet in our Solar System. The beauty of Jupiter is seen in the Aurora as well as a red spot on the planet, confounding the scientists. To put things into perspective, Jupiter is about 300 times bigger than the earth and if it were just 70 times bigger, it would be a star by now. I am telling all this so that you can actually understand how much Jupiter affects the earth. It is also the third brightest after Venus and Moon.

Now, let’s talk about the spirituality of Jupiter on Sagittarius. Called the Ruler of Gods, Jupiter guards, protects and repairs. It has the most influence on the winter zodiac. It can help you achieve your biggest ambitions or even make you into the laziest person on the planet. That’s why you need gemstones to protect you while you’re connected with the Jupiter Energy.
Besides, it’s the oldest planet too and hence, you will unlock many secrets about the world when you’re a Sagittarius working with gemstones!
What does it mean to be a Sagittarius?
To be a Sagittarian means to be optimistic and powerful to go through the hurdles of life with a beaming smile. The constellation connecting Capricorn and Scorpio is a ruler zodiac for the kings. They are fiery yet committed to their ambitions without doubts. Being honest, Sagittarians are easily misinterpreted too.
Represented by the bow or archer, the ninth zodiac in the calendar is a complex zodiac that boasts sharpness in decisions and ambitious nature. The bow and arrow is a representation of the Archer who is known to connect the energies of the earth with heaven.
Although it might seem easy to interpret the bow and arrow of the zodiac Sagittarius is complex. It represents the warrior dormant inside each Sagittarian and the arrow of destiny that makes them touch heaven. It reveals the animaline remnants for everyone born under this zodiac.
What are Sagittarius Positive Personality Traits?
As every zodiac sign imparts a range of characteristics to the person born under it, many of us share general personality traits. While all the positive traits I mention below might not be true for all, if you’re a Sagittarian, you will identify with at least a handful, I promise.
To start with, everything about a Sagittarian is about their freedom and comfort. When you ask a Sagittarian to make a decision or choose one among two, they will be influenced by the option that gives maximum freedom. Sags are adventurous and rarely money-minded. That’s why you will often find Sagittarians who take quick decisions and remain spontaneous.
You will also find empathetic Sagittarians (rarely tho!) who are honest about their feeling and rarely every hides their feelings. They are straightforward, frank and head-strong. You can give them all the advice in the world, but they will always listen to themselves!
Although Sags are incredibly broad-minded they tend to be delusional too. When elaborated, they are enthusiastic and remain optimistic about new things they haven’t tried yet.
Another interesting strength of a Sagittarian is their love for nature and philosophy. Most Sags love to read, pain or are moved by the arts. Often, Sagittarius is defined as an intellectual zodiac than plain cool. They are creative and inspiring to the people around them.
You will find Sagittarians as the leaders who will spot the good in people and the silver lining in the worst of times. To sum it all, the positive traits of Sagittarians make them fun to hang out too!
What are Sagittarius Negative Personality Traits?
Now that we know how awesome Sagittarians are, it’s time to look at the negative traits. Being a Sagittarian myself, I would like to tell you not to get hurt. It hurts me to confess my own negatives, but like all Sags (and Dumbledore) I believe in the Greater Good. Let’s find out what exactly destroys us so that we can stop repeating it ever! It’s called a spiritual repair if you don’t know already.
The biggest threat to the success of a Sagittarian is the over commitment. Often, they tend to get excited quickly over little things and end up bargaining for more than they can handle. That’s the same reason why they are flaky and get bored easily too. If you’re a Sag, watch out for inconsistency in your life.
We are often too honest and incapable of lying that we forget how hurtful we actually are. That’s why Sagittarians are often described as careless and insensitive. We are also thick-skinned and often don’t care about others.
Sagittarians tend to prioritize themselves and can be selfish. We are impatient and forget to focus on the present as we are always hunting behind the future. The same is the reason a Sag can come off as a superficial person soaked in fantasy. It is hard to discipline or make a Sag obey because they get annoyed easily by authority.
Over-smart and over-confident, Sagittarians are also very gullible. A manipulative Scorpio can easily change their mind. Sags end up preferring shortcuts in life due to their impatience but easily find the time to apologize for their mistakes.
But, you need to understand that it’s easy to make a Sagittarian angry. That’s why, even though Sags have a lot of friends, they end up losing a great deal of them over petty things. Sagittarians are over-talkative just as they are uptight, possessive and controlling (unless someone changes their mind).
How do I understand the Element of Sagittarius Zodiac?

Which are the most Compatible Zodiac Signs for a Sagittarian?
Sagittarius and Aquarius is a unique bond of two people who can connect on a deeper level. Their sex life will be blasting, so as their agreement with each other. If you’re a Sagittarian looking for a partner who understands you Aquarius is your best match. Although, love between them wouldn’t be the cheesy kind, a mature kind.
The next best couple is Gemini with Sagittarian. Although compatibility is not great for a Sagittarius with a Gemini, their love life will be enviable. They will find things to laugh together with and move in a uniform understanding with each other.
Sagittarius and Capricorn are the visionaries. If you want someone whom you can dream with as a Sagittarius, Capricorn will fulfill your wishes. These two signs get into a dreamy relationship when they come together. It might be hard for them to find agreement, but once found both will be passionate and committed, equally.
I’ve seen many Pisces with Sagittarius, and have to say the uniformity between these couples has to do with their common ruling planet- Jupiter. Their sex life will be great, so as their communication. Although they will find it hard to agree with each other, every time both of them will have immense respect for each other.
Sagittarius and Aries is a perfect-amazing duo with the ideal mix of everything. If you’re dating an Aries, you will find yourself swinging towards the serious and mature way of life, easily. I met an Arian who changed my life. He taught me what to repair in my life and how to do it. All my addictions disappeared and I took my life back from the toxic ditch it was when I as a Sagittarian met the Arian. Now, we are married to a pretty lass and lad! It will be easy to find discipline and stick to it. You will even find that an Arian teaches you more about the world that you can agree on than oppose to.
Who shouldn’t date Sagittarius?
We know who you should date or befriend with as a Sagittarian, but whom should you stay away from? Let’s find out.
I once dated a Cancerian whom I fell head over heels in love with, as a Sagittarian. I used to wonder what could go wrong. But, within days of starting to see each other, the guy almost bankrupted me financially and emotionally. It was the most toxic relationship in my life. So, if you’re a Sagittarius, Cancer is not for you!
Taurus and Sagittarius is another example of the worst couple who will not only disagree but will also end up fighting each other. They will most probably have an abusive relationship because both are head-strong signs with least patience. Watch out!
Another prime example of two ultra-passionate people who shouldn’t fall in love is Scorpio and Sagittarius. As a Sagittarian, you will always want to contradict the Scorpio. You might have great sex, but the communication gap between you two will be vast. Stay away!
Sagittarius with a Sagittarius can work out if one Sagittarian is an empath, but if both have common traits, it’s best to avoid each other.
