Do you have an overly active friend who just can’t get enough of adventures? Do they like to learn and teach others?Are they Sagittarius? Read on to learn more about them and how you could make their birthday celebration even more exciting.
There is something of the child in all Sagittarius, and there is something of the philosopher or scientist as well. Anyone born between November 22nd to December 21st is referred as Saggitarius in traditional astrology and is the ninth zodiac sign.
Sagittarius wants to explore, carry out quests and broaden life’s perspective, especially by studying and teaching. These people are optimists and they don’t like to dwell on the negative: “There is no time like the present” is their motto. They want to live each day to the fullest.
Sagittarius men may have a “hippie” or “bohemian” style about them. This may include wearing loose fitting clothes that are colorful, flowing garments that are comfortable for running around all day long.
A prominent characteristic of people born under this sign is that they don’t like to be told what to do; they like to do it their way. This is not a sign that can be bossed around; it needs freedom of action and freedom of thought. The ability to make up one’s mind quickly and come to conclusions with confidence makes these people excellent business persons. They make their own decisions about what projects they want to take on and how they will pursue them. It’s hard for them to sit still: They like constant activity and movement, whether it be physical or mental.
Sagittarius has a sunny outlook on life, but this doesn’t mean that life is always easy for these people; far from it! In order for them to find happiness they must learn how to separate fact from fiction, reality from imagination.

These Sagittarius people have their own unique style. You will have to study them closely before you can get an idea of what they are like. They are adventurous to the core and love to be different from others. Maybe that’s the reason they go for neutral shades with a touch of an accent colour like, red or orange. It is difficult to find any common pattern in the way they dress, but trust me they will look good in everything they wear. They are not into following trends, but always try new things.

In the sky
It is thought that the Sagittarius constellation is of Sumerian origin which predates the Greek tales. The Greek have adopted Sagittarius into the night sky and there are a few myths associated with the constellation, using their centaur representatives.
It is speculated that the Sagittarius is not a half-man half-horse creature but a two legged being with the tail of a satyr who rode the horse and shot with a bow and arrow. Further assumed, this figure was Crotus, son of Eupheme. Crotus was said to have invented archery and often went hunting on horseback. He lived on Mount Helicon among the Muses, who enjoyed his company. They sang for him, and he applauded them loudly. The Muses requested that Zeus place him among the stars, where he is seen demonstrating the art of archery. In the sky he was given the hind legs of a horse because he was a keen horseman.
The brightest star in Sagittarius constellation is Kaus Australis, which means “southern bow”. The constellation’s other major stars are Kaus Media (meaning “middle bow”) and Kaus Borealis (meaning “northern bow”). Sagittarius is one of the biggest constellations, stretching 90 degrees across the sky from east to west.
