A Mythical Creature – The Centaur…

We know that the adventurous, free-spirited Sagittarius is represented by the Archer, half-man, half-horse he can be spotted galloping around myths and legends! So how did the association start and what does it mean about stellar Saggys character? Boundless energy? Perhaps!



sagittarius-the-archer-fashionThe Mythology of Sagittarius the Archer…

Chiron the centaur was half man, half horse and guided Jason and the Argonauts. In Greek mythology, centaurs were adventurous, brave, and wise; they were also given to brawling and uncivilized behavior.

The Sagittarian nature could be said to be somewhat un-civilised, a human soul still evolving from animal incarnation. Saggy is intrinsically linked to spiritual wanderings and aspirations.

Sagittarius is shown as an arrow shooting from a bow in the zodiac glyph. This is the Archers arrow ready to fly straight to the sky with an optimistic desire to go high. It shows the energy of seeking a higher purpose, adventure and abundance.
