Sagittarius: Sign of Exploration and Knowledge.

sagittario221.jpgAbout the 20th of November the days become shorter and the light starts to visibly fade, anticipating the mystery of Christmas. The Sun sails along the Zodiac through its ninth sign, the sign of Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter, the greatest of the gods on Olympus. Jupiter was called 'the Greater Benefic' by the ancients as he conferred nobility of spirit and a spirit of justice. Sagittarius is a 'mutable' sign, in that it comes at the end of autumn and is very close to the beginning of winter, therefore taking some of its characteristics from both seasons.
