(Just a note: not ALL the classic social role models ("archetypes") will fit the sign's characteristics--but these are good examples of people who outwardly express the qualities of the sign.)
Sagittarius (November 23 - December 22)
"I Am What I Think is Truth"
Sagittarius brings to the zodiac and the world the love of truth, higher values, the knowledge and application of wisdom, and the capacity to spread thoughts to expand and enlighten. A Sagittarian will gladly tell you what they think (unlike a Scorpio), as they are sure that only true ideas are worthy. However, it may be difficult to argue any other point with them, as they are so certain that their idealism is right! Sagittarius brings emphasis to philosophy, education as a higher institute of learning, law and the judicial system, and religious concepts. They are by nature great debaters, challenging viewpoints to give merit to their opinions and ideas, which they find naturally useful and important to the spiritual evolution of humanity. They are optimistic individuals, with insight and intuitive awareness. Sometimes this optimism finds itself in less practical expression, such as fanatical adherence to philosophical or religious zeal, or in gambling or games of chance and speculation.
Sagittarius is the sign of the centaur-archer, with a drawn bow, representing the arrow of truth. Sagittarius will always speak their mind, and often can be blunt about what they think. They are inclined to jump to conclusions, but they are adept at gathering information and constructing theories. Sagittarius has the rulership of the planet Jupiter, lending the sign the expansion and benevolence associated with the principle of Jehovah, or the presence of God. The need to educate and emphasize teaching is a foundation of Sagittarian life. Scholars taught the advanced sciences of medicine, healing skills and astronomy; the higher "mentor/tutor" role falls into the realm of Sagittarius. The finer military and martial arts also have Sagittarian influence.
Sagittarians can be found in athletic events, or enjoying the love of hunting, fishing, and wilderness traveling or camping. Sagittarius also brings the love of long distance places, foreign countries, their cultures and languages. A person with Sagittarius prominent in their chart will be offered the chance to change their residence many times, or at least be able to experience meeting people from other lands.
Sagittarius rules the thighs and liver, and Sagittarians often enjoy the sport of running and golf, for the physical challenge to be on the move, as well as the outdoor exposure to nature. They are also fond of equestrian events, and can be excellent handlers of horses. Their need for over-indulgence can cause them to enjoy too much rich food and suffer from weight gain.
