Nov 22 – Dec 21
(the archer) is a constellation of the zodiac, commonly depicted
as a centaur drawing a bow.
The constellation is easily recognizable through an asterism
called the Teapot. The Milky Way is at its densest as it passes
through Sagittarius, as this is where the galactic centre
lies. Consequently, Sagittarius
contains many star clusters and nebulae. The complex radio
source Sagittarius A associated with the galactic centre is
also here. Astronomers believe that Sagittarius A may contain
a supermassive black hole.
In Greek mythology, Sagittarius was the centaur Chiron, aiming
his bow at the Scorpion.
The astrological sign Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
is associated with the constellation. In some cosmologies,
Sagittarius is associated with the classical element Fire,
and thus called a Fire Sign (with Aries and Leo). Its polar
opposite is Gemini. Sagittarius is a Mutable Fire sign, and
is concerned with exploring, and with all forms of growth that
can help to adjust, and complete (mutable) a sense of identity
(fire). Sagittarius is the ninth stage in the evolutionary
process of the zodiac, and it is the point were we seek to
understand our place in the universe. Planets in Sagittarius
are motivated to express personal freedom within the confines
of human and universal law, and to be honest and seek the truth
at all cost.
for Sagittarius are "I UNDERSTAND."
