Sagittarius is the Centaur of the zodiac and you are born November 23rd through December 21st.  This is an approximation because of the irregular rotation of the earth and therefore not every year will Sagittarius begin exactly on the 23rd or even end on the 21st.

When I think of Sagittarians what comes to mind is a person with a positive outlook on life, full of energy, athletic ability, adventurousness and a love of traveling and exploration. In fact Sagittarius has a lust for travel and the further away and more exotic, the better!

You are basically optimistic, and continue to be so even when your hopes are dashed. You are the sign of honesty, integrity, and independence with a passion for justice and the rights of others.  Consequently so many of you are involved with legal affairs and political activism.

The key phrase associated with Sagittarius is “I perceive,” referring to your intuitive abilities and your vision for a better world and your longing to search the planet for greener pastures and the inner search for meaning in life.

Sagittarius has always been known as the lucky sign of the zodiac, whether in gambling or just everyday life. Your luck probably stems from your optimism and belief in the future that creates your lucky nature.
