The Sagittarius period is a period of transition from autumn to winter, often gray and cold, with very short days (it is also considered a Mobile Sign as it marks the period preceding the winter solstice). The Sun is lower and lower and seems to sink below the horizon and die. Sagittarius is represented by a centaur (half man and half horse) who stretches his bow, and its symbol is an arrow pointing upwards, indicating the overcoming of material conditions: an ascent which is also a reaction to hardness and the rigors of winter. The Sagittarius native is influenced by this momentum towards the future and the ascent towards the highest ideals, and thus presents himself as a positive person. As a Fire Sign, Sagittarius is the bearer of warmth, energy and creativity; moreover it is ruled by Jupiter, the Planet of luck, justice and moral sense, which confers nobility of soul and extroversion on the native. Exuberant and full of life, he loves adventure and travel. He is thirsty for knowledge and always wants to be informed about the latest news. Lover of animals and nature, she is independent and loves freedom. Impulsive and stubborn, he is sometimes a rebel. Cheerful and optimistic, he is a great companion, engaging and communicative, unless he is in a company he does not like, in which case he will become gloomy and silent. He is sincere and tolerant, and loves confidentiality. Very confident in others, he risks being deceived and over time losing the vital impulse he had in his youth. Gifted with imagination and intuition, he has many ideas and projects, but he doesn’t always manage to complete them. Sometimes he is a little restless. He is ambitious and tries to make his way, to be successful. He has great skills at work, and is also appreciated as a boss, for his sense of justice and loyalty and his broad-mindedness. Love to be praised; sometimes it’s a bit presumptuous. However, he can be the bearer of great philosophical and religious ideals, and be a guide for humanity; in time he can become a true sage. In love he can be sweet and understanding. It is a bit contradictory: he is traditionalist but he loves adventure.
The Sagittarius man
The Sagittarius man is an enthusiast, he loves life in all its aspects. Intelligent and keen observer, he is open-minded and has no prejudices. He has a sense of humor, is jovial and outgoing. He is passionate and sensual, and compared to other Fire Signs he is also capable of deep feelings. Eager to experience, the Sagittarius man is always looking for new love adventures. He is vain and self-centered, and if he is negatively influenced he risks being overbearing and opportunistic. He loves to spend and tends to buy lightly. He needs a balanced partner who knows how to temper his impulsiveness. As a father he is generous, knows how to raise his children with affection and understanding, and tries to teach them a philosophy of life and the principles of justice and loyalty. It will also instill in them the desire for knowledge and a love of travel. He is gifted for work and for directing the work of others, due to his resourcefulness and his sense of justice. Many born in this Sign have a strong religious sense or are inclined to philosophy and the humanities.
The Sagittarius woman
The Sagittarius woman has a complex personality, with many facets. Energetic and dynamic, sometimes rebellious, she loves adventure and always having new experiences. Sensitive and capable of deep feelings, she is capable of loving and of care and devotion. Dream about a romance worthy of a novel. She is attracted to particular and complicated men, who must also be kind and well-mannered, generous and not mean. Endowed with a restless nature, she loves freedom and can’t stand routine. For this reason, even in love it can be a bit fickle. Sometimes she can hurt her partner or other people for her excessive sincerity, which can lead her to say things that are not very pleasant with candor: they are the typical arrows of the Sagittarius! At work she is very determined and able to perform difficult tasks, and also to coordinate and command. He does not particularly like home life, but he does want a spacious and comfortable home. As a mother, she will be kind and loving, and will teach her children the value of freedom and independence.
The first decade
Those born in the first decade of the Sign have Jupiter as their personal Planet, the Planet of luck and nobility of character, whose influence is therefore doubled. The sincerity and expansiveness of the character already typical of Sagittarius are reinforced, as well as the tendency to trust others, especially in youth (so be careful not to overdo it!). Magnanimity, the ability to understand others and generosity are other characteristics exalted by Jupiter. Intellectual skills in general and a sense of justice are also outstanding. As a Planet of power and money, Jupiter then helps to achieve success and wealth.
The second decade
Those born in the second decade of the Sign have Mars as their personal Planet. The red planet, symbol of strength and combativeness, combines well with Jupiter, the ruler planet of Sagittarius, a symbol of luck and nobility of character. Mars adds vitality, courage and enthusiasm, but also impulsiveness and love for adventure, to the extroversion and generosity already typical of the Sign and its governor. Independence and intellectual gifts in general are also exalted. This results in excellent chances of success and achievement in life.
The third decade
Those born in the third decade of the Sign have the Sun as their personal Planet, the Luminary placed at the center of the Solar System, the source of life and the basis of personality determination. It is undoubtedly a positive influence, which brings love for change and for the novelties of reform, a spirit of initiative and the ability to lead others. It also helps Sagittarius natives to be less impulsive, to assume their responsibilities and to work hard to achieve the goals they have set for themselves. The Sun governs the process that leads us to know ourselves and to be ourselves, so those who want to improve their character will have a valid help.
