the Sagittarian's attempt to free itself from man's animal nature. The
centaur is thought to symbolize the development of the human soul.
It symbolizes the animal natures and desires of man, as well as
its spiritual aspirations. In
Greek mythology, centaurs were adventurous, brave, and wise; they
were also given to brawling and uncivilized behavior.

bow. This glyph symbolizes the desire for direction, a higher
purpose, and abundance.

friendly, Sun in Sagittarius people are generally on the go.

generally quick temper. Fortunately, they're usually as
quick to forget what got them angry in the first place.
The need for escape is
generally strong, and some Solar Sagittarians come across as
a little irresponsible. They're generally easy to forgive,
however. After all, their direct, honest approach in life is

Moon in Sagittarius
More than anything, Lunar Sagittarians have a need for
personal freedom and space. They are extraordinarily happy
and easygoing folk, as long as they don't feel caged in or
Lunar Sagittarians have a
simultaneous need for activity. Meeting new people, going
out in the world, and travel are all important to their
sense of well-being. They love open spaces, and, in their
homes, a roomy and bright environment.
There's a bit of a teacher
in Moon in Sagittarius, and definitely a helpful spirit.
They easily forget appointments and the like, and some are
even considered irresponsible. However, it is hard to stay
angry at a Lunar Sagittarian! They are so cheerful and
upbeat, and their optimism is catchy.
Many people with this
position are outdoorsy types. At the very least, they have a
great love for friendly competition.
When the going gets tough,
these people run away. They don't like to be caught up in
routine for too long, and they simply need to escape.
There's a blind faith in
Lunar Sagittarians that is admirable. They simply believe
that everything will work out. Not much for making detailed
plans, people with Moon in Sagittarius prefer to wing it.
They're very adaptable and generally on the go.

Freedom of thought is what
Mercury in Sagittarius strives for -- at least in theory.
These people communicate in an optimistic, forward-looking
manner. Their ideas are generally very big, but it's
probably wise to use tact when you see all the little holes
in their arguments. Remember, they mean well. These people
Not always thrilled about
focusing on details, Mercury in Sagittarius people prefer to
expand their mental horizons through thinking and reading
about larger subjects, like philosophy. Their thirst for
knowledge can be insatiable, but they have little patience
with dry academics or cold, hard facts. Theirs is a restless
intellect. They learn best when they are given the freedom
to think for themselves, when they are truly interested in
the topic at hand, and when the things they're learning are
Even though their
definition of justice might bewilder some, Mercury in
Sagittarius defends justice and freedom religiously. They
generally have a whole slew of principles they follow, or at
least defend in conversation, and they'll gladly discuss
them all with you.
Their optimism is both
their strength and their weakness. After a conversation with
these people, you'll probably feel stimulated and
invigorated. They make life a little better for their
positive, optimistic outlook. But sometimes that optimism
can be a little blind to reality.
Organization, too, is not a
forte of Mercury in Sagittarius. Who has the time for
organizing anyway? When the clutter around them gets too
unbearable, they're given to trashing or piling things
instead of putting them in their rightful places. They do
appreciate lots of room, or at least the illusion of space,
when they're working, studying, or thinking. So, their
office might look alright at first glance. Open up a drawer
or a closet, however, and you might find it's bursting its
Conversations with Mercury
in Sagittarius are always interesting. You can't help but
admire their enthusiasm. At their worst, they take to
preaching instead of conversing. This may not be
intentional, and can get Mercury in Sagittarius into all
kinds of trouble nonetheless. A good debate is hard for
people with this position to pass up. Mercury in Sagittarius
natives think they are very open-minded--and they are in
spots--but they can come across as quite moralistic at times
too. They'll be the first to spot bias or prejudice in
everyone else's communication, but they can be a little
blind to their own. They're not always the best listeners,
either, and not adept at picking up the subtleties in your
Bluntness of speech is a
trademark of Mercury in Sagittarius. These people get
impatient with indirectness and beating around the bush. It
baffles them. It may even piss them off for a while. A
sure-fire way to get under their skin is to play mind games
with them. They may not always pick up on the game-playing
at first, but when they do, they won't be amused.
When they're not fired up
about some issue or another, these people are fun-loving.
They love to laugh, and it's usually pretty easy to get them

Venus in Sagittarius
When Venus in Sagittarius
people are in love, they need to feel they can grow and
expand their horizons through their relationship. They want
to learn new things, and experience everything together.
These are idealistic lovers who want you to appreciate their
beliefs, visions, and ideals. They can be a confusing mix of
the lighthearted and serious. They are roamers and
seekers, and don't commit in their relationships as easily
Venus in Sagittarius men
and women turn others on with their big smiles and laughs,
their jokes, their grand schemes, their dreams, and their
friendly, flirtatious behavior. They pride themselves on their
open minds, but you may notice they can be judgmental too.
They are threatened by inhibitions on the part of their
lover, dullness, and emotional overkill. They are restless,
and won't put up with lovers who dwell on any one thing.
When the going gets tough in their relationship, they have
an overwhelming need to run away. Usually this only means
getting out and experiencing something new before they come
back, but sometimes it can be for good. They are attracted
to people in love with life. You don't need to be refined,
polished, or graceful to win their favor.
Pleasing Venus in
Sagittarius involves allowing them lots of room in the
relationship to grow. Avoid getting stuck in a rut, and
understand their need to move on. Learn to laugh, but take
their rants and raves seriously. Avoid criticizing their
beliefs, join them in debates, and philosophize along with
them. When they feel the need for more experience, join
them! Learn to look past their clumsiness with you and your
feelings, and avoid cornering them or forcing them to

Mars in Sagittarius
When Mars in Sagittarius people get angry, they feel like running.
They have to do something--not about it, but something else
altogether. They don't have a lot of patience to wait things out.
This is where the restless and adventurous nature of Sagittarius
comes in. People with this position of Mars should seriously
consider physical activity as the best means of anger management,
if they don't already (naturally) do so.
People with Mars in Sagittarius
generally have a number of projects going at once. They are not
known for their follow-through, however! They start up new
projects, however, with admirable gusto. Their vision and optimism
can get in the way of completing what they start--they want to do so
much, and they trash things too easily when a new idea takes hold.
Most of the time, Mars in
Sagittarius is playful and fun-loving. They love friendly debates,
although they can go to extremes. Some take it personally when you
don't agree with them--why wouldn't you agree, after all? Well,
for one, you might (especially if you have planets in Virgo or
Gemini) find plenty of holes in their arguments. The thing is,
more often than not, they haven't thought things through, yet
they're very passionate about what they believe in. Mars in
Sagittarius loves to "wing it".
Mars in Sagittarius people see
themselves as warm-blooded folk. They are, but they
sometimes run roughshod over others' feelings during their more
passionate debates. They can be blunt with people, although if
they have a more tactful Mercury placement, this quality will be
subdued. Their direct, blunt approach is most obvious in bed.
They're passionate lovers, and are turned on by open-mindedness
and good humor. But, they are not usually patient when sex gets
too intricate or serious.
Mars in Sagittarius can be a
little hard to understand. Sometimes they seem to be the most
easy-going of people--they love a good joke and a good time. Other
times they are on fire--intense and impassioned about something or
other. They abhor anything that fences them in. They need to feel
like they have space. They're the ones who will run away when
things get too serious or dull. They'll likely be back soon--it's
just that they need to feel free for a while or they go batty.
When these people argue, they can
too easily pick up a moralistic stance that drives everyone around
them crazy. More likely than not, however, they jump off their
high horse sooner than later, and get back to having fun.
Mars in Sagittarius is used to
getting their way and persuading others to believe what they
believe in. Every now and again, they face the few that don't
quite buy their grand theories, or, worse yet, poke holes in their
plans. This is when these normally fun-loving people get
frustrated. In fact, they take it personally when others don't
agree with their philosophies. (See also the

Some Famous People with Mars
in Sagittarius: Dick Clark (Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Mars in
Sagittarius), Ellen DeGeneres, Steffi Graf, Avril Lavigne, Rihanna, Meg Ryan, Christian Slater, Mark Twain (Sun, Venus,
and Mars in Sagittarius), Rene Zellweger.
The world is filled with adventure, new things to experience, and,
most of all, hope, with this Ascendant. There is an unmistakable
faith and enthusiasm with Sagittarius rising people. Grand schemes, big
promises, and a willingness to explore and experiment are themes,
although follow-through is not a strong characteristic of
These individuals are somewhat
restless and often active people. They always seem to be looking
for something that is just out of grasp -- and many do this
their entire lives. They can be quite direct at times, yet they
are likable enough to forgive for their faux-pas. Most have a lot
to say and offer. Their insights and opinions are usually
interesting and exciting, although sometimes lacking in details.
Sagittarius rising people have
opinions about everything, and they just love telling others
exactly what they are. Not all people with this position are
outgoing folk, but they all have a way of moving about that at
least exudes a certain level of confidence. Some might even call
them naive or overly optimistic. Even the quiet ones don't shrink
from life and from experience.
One of the most obvious and
endearing traits of Sagittarius rising is their willingness to
keep up a sense of humor. Even when they're feeling low, they
manage to find humor in life and have fun with whatever they do
have. The placement of Sagittarius' ruling planet, Jupiter, will
give more clues to how they go about expressing themselves.
Jupiter in Capricorn, for example, might give a more sarcastic
approach, but underneath there lies an unmistakable hope and
spirit for living. More on
Famous people with this
position include Catherine Zeta-Jones, Anjelica Huston, Brigitte
Bardot, Elvis Presley, and Nicolas Cage.
