Sagittarius Icon


We can identify Sagittarius constellation between Scorpio’s (West) and Capricorn’s (East). This constellation is quite famous because of the galactic centre included in it, and it’s easily recognizable thanks to its asterism called “The Teapot”, made by its principal stars.

Sagittarius constellation traits and mythology


As you surely know, Sagittarius is represented by a half man and half horse archer. The mythology of this sign is a bit controversial: we know for sure that it has Sumerian origins and it has been resumed later by Greeks, but the versions of this myth are double. Some argue that Sagittarius is related to the myth of the Unicorn, that represents beauty and embodies passion. Some others instead, argue that it is related to Chiron, goodwill and wise creature, respected by mortals and Gods, which entrusted him the education of their children.

According to this version, Sagittarius constellation has been made by Jupiter after the untimely demise of Chiron by means of a poisoned arrow. But this version is not entirely exact because Chiron has its own constellation, actually. Also, these two centaurs are very different: Chiron was the inventor of medicine, famous for its wisdom and knowledge; Sagittarius is a skilled hunter.
As I said before, Sagittarius was yet known between ancient Sumerian and was associated with the War God Ninurta. The Greeks upset this myth: Eratosthenes described the Sagittarius as a satyr, an ancient hybrid with human chest and cloven hoofs, related to Krotos, Pan and Euphemia’s son.

Krotos was the inventor of the arch and he grew on the mount Helicon with the Muses, benefitting from their company and assisting to the wonderful manifestation of their arts. To express his admiration for his 9 step sisters, Krotus thought up the applause. The Muses were so grateful that begged Zeus to put him into the sky, transforming him into the constellation he suited. And so it was that Zeus decided to give him a horse body since he was a skilled rider, and arch and arrow to celebrate its greatness as an archer.

They’re still very independent, seductive and provocative people, and these traits may bring them to “take a trip” outside the couple. Outer looks mean a lot to them. They don’t have enough patience or inclination to look below the surface to see the actual substance.
Being very smart and mental, they tend to speak a lot and quickly, and they don’t always read too much what they say to people, even if they may hurt them.
