Mythology of the constellation Sagittarius



The Archer, as the constellation is called, commemorates one of the more heroic figures of the zodiac. This mythical figure is Chiron, the kindest and gentlest of the Centaurs. Centaurs were half man, half horse. Although many of them were stupid and violent.


Chiron was known for his wisdom, his caring nature and his ability to teach. He was immortal; his father was Kronos and his mother was a daughter of the sea god Oceanus. Chiron tutored the young Greek heroes Achilles and Jason, among others. He was renowned among the Greeks, although he lived by himself in a cave in the countryside.

Mythology of the constellation Sagittarius


Heracles shot him with an arrow by accident. The hero had been trying to wipe out the other vicious centaurs who were plaguing the countryside. He had no intention of shooting Chiron, and was extremely remorseful. Although Chiron used his medical skills on the wound, it was incurable. Heracles' arrows were tipped with the deadly venom of the Lernean Hydra, which killed any victim it touched.


But the centaur was an immortal, which changed the situation. Chiron was in terrible agony, but he could not die, although he wanted to. Prometheus the Titan saw his plight and managed to help him. It is not clear what exchange Prometheus and Chiron made, but the Titan made Chiron mortal, and enabled him to leave the Earth and go up to the heavens.




Sagiitarius personality







The centaur is the symbol for this sign. In mythology, the centaur was half man and half horse, given to pursing pleasure. The centaur is shown with a bow, which he shoots. Wherever the arrow lands, the centaur follows, retrieves the arrow and shoots again. Those born under this sign will love travelling, discovering new things, meeting new people, and learning new things.


Sagittarians crave the freedom of the open road, both metaphorically and physically. They are most unhappy when they are tied to a normal routine and can become restless in situations where there is not enough variety involved. Because they travel so much and are eager to experience new things, those of this sign are fun to be around and often have large numbers of friends. They question everything and think that everyone should do the same.


Independence is Sagittarius' principle, they crave adventure and excitement and welcome change with open arms. Sagittarius is the sign of the philosopher and the explorer, they will go as far as road will go and explore every corner thoroughly in their ever eternal search for wisdom. Freedom is so important to Sagittarius that they will actually make decisions based on the amount of freedom that is given by the choice they have made, as a result, sometimes a good opportunity is turned down because of it's high commitment need, but this is their choice so it is a good choice for them.


Upside: Sagittarians are highly intelligent and love to be around intelligent people. They enjoy learning new things, traveling to new places, and experiencing unique adventures. Creativity is at the core of who they are and Sagittarians are often creating and recreating their living situations, work situations, and human relationships. Sagittarians are spiritually inclined and are among the types that would travel to the Himalayas to commune with the monks, or take the book, Eat, Pray, Love and go to each spot mentioned in its pages to seek their own enlightenment.


Downside: Confining a Sagittarian and not allowing for ample space to roam will make this sign rude, and uncooperative. Sagittarians often come up with unrealistic, big plans, but lack the ability to follow through with them. This isn’t because they aren’t capable, but rather they can become sidetracked chasing another avenue of adventure or thought. Sagittarians are about the bigger picture and details often bog them down and bore them.
