The sign Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter. Physically it is related to the pelvis, hips and thighs. It is said to have a masculine nature, and is therefore more active in its energy expression. As a Fire sign it is connected with the identity - specifically with the search to find a deeper meaning in human existence. It is therefore connected with religious and philosophical urges. As a Mutable sign, planets placed here express there energy in a flexible and changeable manner, with a certain restlessness or inconstancy.
Sagittarius in characterized by a love of truth and righteousness, and an unfortunate tendency to express it rather too directly, even when not asked. There is a love of open horizons and travel and a need to expand on an inner intellectual level. There is a pronounced urge to rise above the animal nature towards the divine, and an impatience with the trivial issues in life. A dislike of superficiality may result in intolerance for the ordinary niceties between people.
