Sagittarius, The Archer
Uncover hidden superstitions meanings
Ninth sign of the Zodiac, Nov. 23rd to Dec. 21st. Ruled by the planet Jupiter; correct metal, Tin.
Those born under Sagittarius were supposed to be enterprising, independent, and proud, just, courteous, sensitive, honest, keen sportsmen, fond of animals and of out-of-door life. The Sagittarius gems are the Topaz and Pearl. The Topaz was used by the ancients as a charm against pestilence, burns, chest complaints, and dangers while traveling.
It was called the “Stone of Strength” by the Romans, and worn to keep away gout, lunsey and sudden death. In the Middle Ages to dispel enchantment, calm anger, cure asthma, and bring joy and contentment. The grass tends to be greener somewhere else pretty much always for them so sometimes they can get caught up in a cycle of not really diving too deep, much like their opposites, the Gemini. The difference is that the Sagittarian can be deeply connected and deeply happy in any given moment, despite the fact that the moment might be short lived. They invest themselves entirely in what makes them excited and inspired and then the fire burns out and something else catches their eye, usually something sparkly and off they go in a wild gallop. The Sagittarian is the nicest friend in the whole Zodiac. They will always be there for you if you need them, and they are kind as well as openhearted. They tend to be free of all kind of preconceived notions or judgments which allows them to love unconditionally, unlike many of the other signs who might have to hold onto a condition or two as part of their nature.In essence, the Sagittarian loves you for who you are presenting yourself to be in that moment, and the moment that that changes, they will leave.
This is hard for many because losing a Sagittarian influence in ones life is never easy; they tend to leave a big hole. But it is in the nature of the Sagittarian to give into their Wanderlust and to be free to experience whatever life has to offer them. Sagittarians are high energy conversationalists; they are intriguing as well as polite. They can write and publish communications which are highly esteemed because of their worldly knowledge. When it comes to gambling, they will put everything on the throw of the dice just to see what happens. Therefore some see them as reckless and sometimes wasteful or even hurtful and shallow.
But it doesn’t matter to you what others think, Sagittarius, you do what you know is right and you keep on going. That is what others love and hate about you all at the same time. Ruled by the element of Fire, and the Planet Jupiter, your expansiveness knows no bounds. You are elegant and sophisticated as well as down to Earth. The Keyword associated with the Sagittarian is ‘I see,’ illustrating their ability to see what is around them and the perspective of the entire world which the Sagittarian decides to see. The part of the body ruled by Sagittarius is the liver, the hips and the thighs.
