In Greek mythology, Sagittarius was depicted as a centaur, a half human half horse creature with the torso of a man and the body of a horse. The centaur is portrayed as aiming an arrow toward the heart of the constellation Scorpio and the red supergiant star Antares. In Babylonian mythology, Sagittarius was associated with the centaur-like god Nergal. Nergal had two heads… one human and one panther. It also had wings, and the stinger of a scorpion positioned above a horse’s tail.
The Explorer – in search for a connection to the universe… for absolute Truth. A perceptual awareness of what we are connected to becomes the basis of philosophical thought and metaphysical speculation. The sixth sense… intuition connecting to the power of visions. The cosmic joke and the vision of the absurd.
Sagittarius Shadow Self
The tendency to make generalisations, then fixing on those as the truth. The need to convince and convert others to the same point of view in order to generate emotional security. Not understanding that one’s truth is only a portion of the truth… not the total vision. Obnoxious, opinionated, restless, over-idealistic and blunt.
Sagittarius is the 15th largest constellation in the sky and is situated on the Milky Way. The constellation contains the galactic centre and a number of famous deep sky objects, including the Bubble, Lagoon and Trifid Nebulae.
Sagittarius Brightest Star
The brightest star in the constellation is Kaus Australis (Southern Bow), a giant blue binary star marking the base of the archer’s bow and situated approximately 143 light years from Earth. It is the 36th brightest star in the sky and shines at a luminosity 375 times that of our Sun. This star gives strength to the limbs and swiftness of movement as well as an indefatigable spirit. by astrologer © Crystal Gaze
