Aim high, adventurous Archer! Sagittarius is symbolized by the Centaur (half man, half horse), aiming his arrow high toward the heavens on the hunt for big ideas and experiences.
Ruled by giant Jupiter, planet of growth and opportunity, fiery Sagittarius is full of energy and a desire to explore. Positive and optimistic, Sagittarius loves becoming enlightened to new ideas through people, travel and philosophy. Others gravitate to Sagittarius for their happy-go-lucky attitude and outgoing personality, and the only way to bring Sag down is to limit their freedom in any way.

What we love about Sagittarius
Sagittarius is the life of the party! There's never a dull moment with Sag -- their friendly, outgoing attitude and interesting philosophical conversations keep others happily engaged.
Why Sagittarius drives us nuts
Carefree Sagittarius can be reckless in both action and words, and may hurt others inadvertently with blunt honesty or thoughtless acts.
Slow down! Sagittarius speeds through life with an aggressive eagerness for new things, but they would be wise to slow down and stick with something for a few minutes.
