Sagittarius is connected with religious and philosophical urges and spiritual development.


As a Mutable sign, planets placed here express there energy in a flexible and changeable manner, with a certain restlessness or inconstancy.

Sagittarius in characterized by a love of truth and righteousness, and an unfortunate tendency to express it rather too directly, even when not asked. (Read: They can often “dish it out, but can’t take it”).

There is a love of open horizons, freedom, travel and a need to expand on an inner intellectual level. There is a pronounced urge to rise above the animal nature towards the divine, and an impatience with the trivial issues in life. A dislike of superficiality may result in intolerance for the ordinary courtesies between people.
