Sagittarius: The Sign of The Bold Soul

Okay, your turn Sagittarius!

THE-EDUCATION-OF-ACHILLES-James-Barry-1772Sagittarius is in the 9th house of the zodiac. Tucked in between Capricorn and Scorpio, Sagittarius is symbolized by the archer Chiron. In Greek mythology, Chiron was a half man half centaur who practiced medicine, archery, healing and hunting. Interesting mix isn’t it? 

The Sagittarius sign is also represented by an image of a bow and arrow. These energies are direct, quick and sometimes sharp.

Sagittarius’s are known for that double side of them – where they are the life of the party, humorous and the center of attention, but only if they feel comfortable.

If they feel awkward, out of place or uncomfortable in anyway, a Sagittarius can shift into exactly the opposite of wanting attention. As many people are becoming increasingly sensitive to energies, many Sagittarius’s can easily pull back from these intense social situations.

When this happens for a Sagittarius, those bold qualities can take a hiatus while you recharge your energy. Be sure to take time for yourself and rest after your adventures!
