The Story Behind Sagittarius

New improved version of this post coming soon! Read the new series here.

Sagittarius is all about the adventure of life, with the journey being more important than the destination. Full of ideas and possibilities, they are intuitive, restless and changeable. Sagittarians need a quest or vision to chase after and be inspired by, as they get bored easily. They tend to be lucky and impulsive but don’t cope well with limits and boundaries. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter.

Sagittarius Myths

Zeus, the ‘light of heaven’ represents the never ending quest of spirit as the god of lightning and enlightenment. He is bound to the material world of form through his tempestuous marriage to Hera, from which he is always trying to escape into affairs with other women, both mortal and immortal. He is the symbol of promiscuous creativity and fertility.

Chiron is a centaur – half man, half horse. He lives in the forests of Thrace and is known for his wisdom as a teacher and philosopher. A tragic figure in some ways, he was wounded by a poisoned arrow, and being immortal, couldn’t die. But the wound never healed, so Chiron became known as the wounded healer.

  1. As I am A Sagittarian and feel for the journey I really enjoyed this post! But last week the destination was more important than the journey. Home to the UK after a 24 hour ferry journey from Santander in rough seas. But there were whales!
