Place and Character
The Gambler of the Zodiac, Sagittarius is ruled by JUPITER, and its symbol is the ARCHER. Its natural place is the NINTH HOUSE, the house of Travel and Philosophy. Expansive Sagittarius is a FIRE sign, goal-oriented and optimistic. Blunt Sag is always willing to help, particularly if also promoting its own advancement.
They are idealistic, optimistic, freedom-loving, casual, friendly, buoyant, gregarious, enthusiastic, philosophical, studious, farseeing, direct, outspoken, honest, loyal, restless and loves travel.
Sagittarians may plunge into a love affair whole-heartly, but do not commit themselves to easily. They enjoy the chase of a new romance and often prefer casual relationships to something more permanent which denies them freedom.
Colours: Warm brown autumnal tints and brilliant blue. Dark blue is the colour of Jupiter, ruler of Sagittarius.
Stones: Carbuncle, topaz and hyacinth.
Trees: Lime, mulberry and oak.
Sagittarians is a sign of the extremes. Some Sagittitarians see money as their only road to freedom, and so they take big risks: others see it as beneath them, and spend without responsibility. The quest is often for adventure, not cash.
