Sagittarius rules the hips, thighs, liver, and sciatic nerve.
Regarded as the luckiest sign in the zodiac, Sagittarians always appear to land on their feet. Engaged in an eternal quest for meaning, Chrysoprase helps prevent burnout while achieving this goal. It can also help to broaden one’s perspective and light up the path ahead. Its philanthropic urges are in tune with Sagittarius’s leader, beneficent Jupiter. Green Aventurine—a stone of the heart—helps Sagittarius to expand under Jupiter’s tutelage while avoiding excess. Mint Green Fluorite promotes relaxation, serenity, and peace required for meditation. It focuses inner vision and shuts off the questioning mind, creating a space for Sagittarians to simply be.
The Moon of Long Nights (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
This period is one of sharing and communications. This is the time to share the experiences of the year with friends and family and in doing so, to examine your own life and discover in yourself new opportunities for growth. The influence is one of introspection.
Sagittarius is a fire element—active, self-assertive, creative, energetic, and just a wee tad on the impatient order. They impart spirit and energy.
Fire signs are passionate and loving, confident and innovative. Fire shapes inspiration. This is the impetuous element of spirit and creative life. The spontaneous Fire element is active and outgoing. It is innovative and initiatory. Fire signs get things moving. They act immediately with verve and confidence. A passionate element, this is the world of inspiration and creativity.
A Mutable Sign
Sagittarius goes at a great gallop! They are energetic, ambitious, generous, freedom-loving, and a seeker of challenge. They are open to new ideas and exploration.
Given freedom, Sagittarians in any relationship are warm, affectionate, and interesting companions, but they’re most compatible with Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.
John F. Kennedy Jr. (Nov 25), Bette Midler (Dec 1), and Brad Pitt (Dec 18).
Do you have any Sagittarians in your life?

At last! My sign 🙂 Thank you for this interesting series. It has been fun to read and reflect upon.
Winsomebella – I’m glad you’ve enjoyed this series. Thank you for letting me know 🙂
This would describe my Mother and nearly all her relatives…but other than she liked to explore all the new products that interested her….she does not sound like this descriptions at all… She could not fantasize, but she could think about things and loved the “rules of living” A great 1st grade teacher, because of her control. And certainly not generous, that is what she disliked most about me and my Father.
I have an Uncle that definitely fits this description, but the other 6 relatives are more like my mum. And their power color is Navy Blue.
Patricia – I like how you described your mother’s love for the “rules of living.” I know many people who derive enjoyment from those as well 🙂 Not a judgment as in “good” or “bad” — simply an observation 🙂
I have a couple of friends with this sign, and your post is really spot on with this one.
You have to love that ice-cream, that would go down well at the moment, a bit hot here, summer of course. 🙂
Magsx2 – It’s always fun when someone says that you’re “spot on” — thank you. Yes, I “took one for the team” and bought that (delicious!) mint chocolate chip ice cream cone. Tough job — but SOMEone had to do it 🙂
And let me say that you were waaaaaaaay spot on with your “how to peel garlic” video clip on your blog. I can’t begin to tell you the number of people that I shared that with (plus touted it on Digg and Reddit). Len (my husband) is a phenomenal cook and he’s thrilled with that easy-to-execute tip!
Oh yes, my son! “Sagittarius goes at a great gallop! They are energetic, ambitious, generous, freedom-loving, and a seeker of challenge. They are open to new ideas and exploration.” These words describe him perfectly! And the compatibility with Libras explains the deep connection he had with my mom when he was a child and teen. Thank you for the insight, Laurie.
Barbara – I’m glad that this post resonated with you regarding your son. By the way, have you been on a blogging hiatus? I haven’t received any email notification of new blogs from your neck of the woods.
Oh dear, here we go again! Will have to ask Nate to look into the email subscriptions again – I’m sorry this problem seems to keep cropping up! 😦
This describes one of my friends to a T! Thank you for a lovely series, Laurie. People will probably discover this astrological series on Speaking from the Heart for a long time.
Kathy – I’m tickled pink that you’ve enjoyed this series. People have been finding the “Numerologically Speaking” posts and hitting them hard. I suspect that you’re right…folks will find “Zodiacally Speaking” and hit them as well.
The first Sagittarian I know….ME 🙂 Some of this sounds like me, but not all of it. Of course, some of our natural traits can be stifled from our earlier young life.
Ann – You’re right, there’s so many ingredients that go into making up the aspects of who we are: life path number, zodiac sign, birth order, not to mention the biggest ingredient of all — life experience 🙂
🙂 yup… in this time of my life, having obtained a little wisdom and already made changes in my life, I am working to really find my true self and BE who I really am 🙂
Ann – Clearly, you’re on the right path 🙂
Laurie, I have enjoyed this series of profiles just like many of your other readers. I’m drawing a blank on the Archer. Though I will take Brad Pitt if he is free.
Sandi – I’m glad you’ve enjoyed this series (good old Brad isn’t too hard on the eyes, is he?)….
Laurie, I sure hope I am on the right path. I wish I could see it a little more clearly 🙂
Oh well, the new year is almost here and I am excitedly looking forward to all the blessings God has in store for me 🙂
Ann – I have every confidence that 2012 will be an AMAZING year for you. I’ve decided to start each day by letting the Universe know that I am open to receiving a miracle.
Thanks for your confidence Laurie. I like your idea for starting each day “I am open to receiving a miracle.” 🙂 Even though a couple big changes for my life have not come to fruition YET 🙂 I know that when they do, it will be the perfect timing AND in ways much better than I can imagine 🙂
Each day I wake, my health is good, I can see/hear/speak and I keep smiling is just part of the blessings of every day.
Ann – Yes, always much better than we can even begin to imagine 🙂
I married a Sag once. (notice past tense) My mom was also a Sag although not the one you described so I think she had a lot of planets in other signs on her chart. She had the presence of a saint to the rest of the world. Living with her was an exercise in depression prevention. Caused me to become an “entertainer” to cheer her up all the time. My sarcastic bent comes from dad who wasn’t a big fan of mom’s. Quite the upbringing. I raised myself I think. 🙂
Have a super duper New Year!
SuZen – It does, indeed, sound like you raised yourself. And what a FINE job you did!
Sometimes different surprises God sends us that we would never have even dreamed of, and even if we would have we could not imagine them happening to us.

Thank you for the link 🙂
Hi Laurie! I’m a textbook Sag–have always been. Driven, impatient, loyal, but always on the go! Thanks for the description. Do you have seminars in the U.S.? If so, where? Also, for the numerology reports, what info do you need and how is it paid? Thanks, D

This is the most accurate and “spot on” Zodiac info I have ever seen! Great job! It fits my boyfriend and I both perfectly. And we are most compatible with each other. So happy!!
CalijamesandCanadaCavan – I’m so glad this post resonated with you, thank you for letting me know 😀
