Astrology: Sun Signs Sagittarius
|Gifts and Lessons||The symbol for Sagittarius is the centaur - the half-man,
half-half. Some centaurs were wild and rough, while others overcame their animal nature
and became refined and wise. The centaur Chiron taught the Greek heroes their skills and

The keyphrase for Sagittarius is "I seek". All Sagittarians strive to rise higher, for some it is social climbing and for others the seeking of knowledge and enlightenment.
Like Gemini, Virgo and Pisces, Sagittarians are (or can be) highly adaptable and fit into situations which might challenge others. They are restless and want to be in action, whether mental or physical, seeking the higher things in life. They are ones who synthesise and draw conclusions and generalities from their experience.

Sagittarians value their independence, and seek to inspire others with their knowledge and optimism. Although some appear arrogant and tactless (because they are direct), they are often reasonable and listen to what others have to say. They are a happy lot who encourage and teach others the higher levels of knowledge. Sagittarians are generous and wise, philosophical and honest., They enthusiastically share the knowledge they have. They are original in their thinking and behaviour and curious about the universal nature of life and existence. They are frank and rather transparent (like Aries and Leo) but as they are honest, this isn't too important. They have few secrets.
Sagittarians are impartial. In this they are not cold or detached, but can passionately understand what motivates and drives others.
