23 November – 21 December
The ninth sign of the zodiac, Sagittarius is the sign of the horse man. It brings a combination of physical strength and energy, with powerful intellect. Here is the second ‘dual’ sign of the zodiac. Versatility will be present, and mind and body should act as one. Rest and relaxation come through both. Jupiter, the ruling planet, encourages both mind and body, along with the need for challenge, and Sagittarians must be aware of this.
Here is the third and last of the fire element signs, and the third of the mutable quality. The fire burns strong and bright, with lively enthusiasm and an infectious emotional level. It gives the individual the ability to grasp overall situations very quickly. Optimism abounds. The Sagittarian Centaur is an Archer with a need for room in which to breathe and for a diversity of interests. Sagittarians must always be aware that intellectual and physical stagnation will lead to restlessnes which is their real enemy. While the Sagittarian polar sign, Gemini, is intellectually oriented, there is an accent on the higher mind, which help develop philosophical traits and quells the tendency to take risks.

I will add here at the end. I Lewis Kirk, author of this blog, am a Sagittarius. And to quote from a sentence above; “The Sagittarian Centaur is an Archer with a need for room in which to breathe and for a diversity of interests.” A diversity of interests.. If this isn’t FragmentsOfragments summed up in one sentence, I can think of no better words!
