Sagittarius is the positive sign of Jupiter, mutable fire, the hips of the Cosmic Person, a horse, centaur or archer. As sign 9, it indicates grace, beneficence, completion and full harmony (3 x 3), the manifestation of the will in action.

Sagittarius individuals project the positive side of Jupiter. They have a positive attitude in life, an expansive spirit, and a moral, religious or philosophical disposition. They have a strong sense of principle, law and justice. They are usually warm and friendly, dramatic and seek to develop their principles in life. They make themselves noticed and can easily become active or involved with the expansion of the social forces to which they open up. On the other hand, they can be too conventional, law-abiding and moralistic, caught in some dogmatic idea.

Sagittarians may become lawyers, religious leaders or successful businessmen. They like to be generous, but they also like to stay within the conventions of the society, group or organisation with which they are involved. They possess critical minds and strong opinions but are prone to become self-righteous. Their minds may be too discriminating and fault finding and they may be unable to see their own limitations.

Sagittarians are often athletic, though not always competitive, they like the outdoors, enjoy the wilderness, and are lovers of nature. They have a sense of play or even partying, which may become self-indulgence or group indulgence. They find it hard to settle down. They are lucky in life and things often come easy for them. The world often responds quickly and favourably to them. They can inherit much from father or family. They are a helpful presence in any enterprise, as they bring much enthusiasm and make good and devoted friends. Yet, however successful they may be in the material world, Sagittarians usually retain some sense of higher aspiration and are attracted to religion or the spiritual life.
