The Archer symbolizes the sign Sagittarius. Your sign's element is Fire. The planet Jupiter rules Sagittarius. You have a lot of nervous energy and are very optimistic. Sagittarius will overlook details so that the overall picture can be considered. Sagittarius is warm and friendly. You like to talk a great deal making it difficult for others to get a word in edgewise. Sagittarius loves to travel. You are adaptable, tolerant, philosophical, knowledgeable, honest and outspoken. Like Gemini, this is a dual sign and a love of change and variety is felt. Sagittarius is constructive, clear-sighted, generous, cheerful, loyal and independent.

The Centaur-Archer is associated with Chiron, the wise centaur of Greek mythology, and some say with Artemis, the Lady of Wild Beasts and goddess of the hunt. Half-man and half-horse, the centaur points a bow and arrow straight up to the heavens, symbolic of aiming for a direction, goal or target. Sagittarians usually have more than one objective or destination that they are aiming for and prefer to follow their own course unhampered by any type of restrictions. You're a dual sign with your feet on the ground and your head angled toward the heavens. Your earthly animal side is drawn to the open road, where you relish speeding on a quest for adventure and knowledge. Luckily, you're blessed with foresight that verges on the prophetic. That protects you -- to an extent -- from misadventure.

Your keyword is SELF-PROJECTION. Whether you're running a race, arguing a case or teaching, you live for self-expression and desire diverse outlets to exert your spirited energy. You are enthusiastic, gregarious, generous and cheerful. But watch out: Your lightheartedness and penchant for exaggeration can be misleading. When you project your thoughts and knowledge in earnest, your listeners learn. It's the spirit of the human upper half of the centaur that yearns to know all the answers and to find the truth that will set us free. And it's in your altruistic nature to share what you've learned with others. Experience and embarrassment will temper your tendency to be recklessly outspoken and tactless.

Expressing what's in your heart is your first priority, and whether you're targeting a love relationship or becoming more involved with the development of a creative venture, your passion can be contagious - and very attractive! Staying active keeps your energy at a peak, although it's easy to concentrate more on building strength and too little on flexibility. Techniques like Reiki and acupuncture may be highly effective.
Possible negative aspects of the sign Sagittarius: You can be rebellious, hasty, hypocritical, too outspoken, lustful and intolerant. You can lack concentration.
