Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the zodiac relating to dharma (virtue), higher understanding, and truth. Its symbol is the archer pointing his arrow towards the heavens. The archer’s keyword is “I seek to understand”. This sign rules philosophy, higher education, self-study, and spiritual knowledge. Jupiter, the benefic planet of expanded awareness and the search for the purpose of life, rules Sagittarius.
The sign Sagittarius relates to our freedom-loving nature. We like the challenge of wide-open spaces, and breaking free of restraints. Sagittarius is a male, yang, fire sign, implying high energy and the outgoing, active personality of a seeker. It is a mutable sign, reflecting openness, breadth of vision, and the joy of discovery.
Of all the signs, Sagittarius is the most associated with seeking group involvement. Although it implies a love of belonging to a group, the energy of Sagittarius rarely seeks a leadership role that would impinge upon its freedom. Of all the signs, Sagittarius indicates the strongest commitment to involvement in a group or a cause. This sign’s energy functions well in the fellowship of a band or theater company, or seeking to further the truth in environmental, humanitarian, and philanthropic groups.
There is a danger that the energy of Sagittarius becomes overly diversified in the search for knowledge and expansion. Such a broad spectrum of interests and causes makes it difficult to focus on one thing. Although Sagittarius reflects the desire to reach for higher knowledge, a path must be chosen, at some point, into which all the energy of this sign is directed.
Sagittarius is associated with the higher brain, the flow of energy through the body associated with circulation, blood and the thighs.
