The centaur is the symbol for this sign. In mythology, the centaur was half man and half horse, given to pursuing pleasure. Those born under this sign will love traveling, discovering new things, meeting new people, and learning new things. Because they are eager to experience new things, they are fun to be around. They are usually highly intelligent and enjoy the company of other intelligent people. Sagittarians are about the bigger picture and details often bog them down and bore them.

Their Fire sign is gentle, mystical and creative. Imagine stained glass with its brilliant, colorful light shining through the glass. Your jewelry will reflect this image with colors of lilac, mauve, purple, amethyst, violet, vermillion and midnight blue.
