The Sun has entered the fiery sign of Sagittarius the Archer, ruled by Jupiter. Unlike emotional, internally focused Scorpio, Sagittarius tends toward self-expression and expansion. The motto, as it were, for this sign is “I seek, therefore I am.”
Given to magnanimity and generosity, people born under this sign may, on one hand, wax philosophically about the greater good and other collective issues. Meanwhile, their other hand, out of view, may seek to expand knowledge of a more sensual nature. Being children of Jove, Sagittarians may be apt to overdoing it, wanting more of all they have. Give them food and they may eat gluttonously. Give them power, they become authoritarian. Give them a taste of universal love and, behold, a martyr is born. Although in need of external forces to curb their appetites, they aren’t as personal as the other fire signs. Their desire for freedom of both body and mind confirms for them a life of exploration beyond the confines of home and the known.
For comparison, famous Sagittarius personalities include Pope Francis, Churchill, Stalin, Beethoven, Sinatra, Disney, Hendrix, and Swift (Taylor, not Jonathan).
