Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You’re a horse in so much as you always have hair in your eyes, but it ends there. You’re much less fiery Centaur than you are wimpy mouse, and mouse you are, Sagittarius. Hiding in the dark, happily munching on your cracker, all alone.

Leo

Leo July 23 - August 22) Why bother arguing here? You're a Lion, you own it, you know it, and we all agree. There is no other animal for you unless it's a mini Lion, or a cartoon Lion, or Lion figurine. It doesn't matter. You roar, we cringe and back off, no matter...

Virgo

Virgo (August 23 - September 22) You're a pig, and we mean that with total respect. Virgin, schmirgin! Who the heck thought that one up? You're no virgin, that's for sure, nor are you pure and innocent. However, you are smart and you do love a good roll in the filth,...

Libra

Libra (September 23 - October 22) The scales. Huh? No Libra in the history of the world has ever been even-keeled or well-balanced. You're a cockroach: you survive it all, and mostly by walking on top of people. Libra Libra (♎︎) is the seventh astrological sign in the...

Scorpio

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21) Yeah, being associated with a Scorpion sounds cool and threatening, but are you even slightly cool and threatening in real life? Nah, you're more bark than bite, which makes you a dog. All that Scorpio toughness makes you a...

Cancer

Cancer (June 21 - July 22) Being associated with a crab is just such a downer. A crab? Come on, anything has to be more potent than a crab. You're much more of a whale than a crustacean, any day. Wise, stealthy, somewhat slow but powerful, with a mean mating call....

Gemini

Gemini (May 21 - June 20) That whole "twins" thing is cool when it's there to describe your two-sided nature, but if we had to pinpoint your spirit animal, it would have to be a minnow, or, maybe a sardine. You're the anchovy of the zodiac: little, stinky, and...

Taurus

Taurus (April 20 - May 20) You're a bull, so they say, but the reality is, you're a dog. You are affectionate, playful, goofy, and stubborn as heck. You've got loyalty down to a science, and you love a good bowl of chow. Taurus Taurus (♉︎) (Latin for bull; from the...

Aries

Aries (March 21 - April 19) They call you a ram and that may be all well and good, but you Aries types, you know you're just big ol' wildcats. You're smart, cunning, lazy, and, on occasion, you love to knock stuff off a table. When you walk into a room, people become...

Pisces

Pisces (February 19 - March 10) If there's one animal that could represent the piece of work that you are, Pisces, it would have to be a squirrel. You're fastidious, quick, and selfish. You hoard until there's nothing left, and you glut yourself until you pop. You are...

Sagittarius

Sagittarius (♐︎) (Greek: Τοξότης Toxotes, Latin: Sagittarius) is the ninth astrological sign, which is associated with the constellation Sagittarius and spans 240–270th degrees of the zodiac. Under the tropical zodiac, the sun transits this sign between approximately November 23 and December 21.

Sagittarius, the half human and half horse, is the centaur of mythology, the learned healer whose higher intelligence forms a bridge between Earth and Heaven. Also known as the Archer, Sagittarius is represented by the symbol of a bow and arrow.

Sagittarius Myth

Sagittarius or Chiron, son of the Titan Cronos was one of the many centaurs in Greek mythology. … One main reason was that Chiron was born half man and half horse, whereas the other centaurs were born of the sun and rain clouds. One day Chiron was accidentally shot with a poisoned arrow by Hercules.

The zodiac sign of Sagittarius refers to a constellation that comes from the culture of the Sumerians, later adopted by the Greeks and then by the Romans, who created a bit of confusion around its mythological origins. According to some cuneiform inscriptions, the Sumerian god of war, Nergal, was represented as a hunter and an archer.

For the Romans, the Archer was Chiron, the wise centaur, teacher of Jason, Achilles and other famous heroes, but the identification of Sagittarius with Chiron is inaccurate as he was originally associated with the Centaur stars. However, already during the Alexandrian and then Roman periods, some authors confused Chiron with Sagittarius. The constellation of Sagittarius was created to guide Jason and the Argonauts to the Golden Fleece.

The muses asked Zeus to put him in heaven, and so there he was placed, in the act of demonstrating his marksmanship

In fact, the character who originally represented him in Greek mythology was the legendary Crotonic, son of the goat-god Pan and Eufeme, the nurse of the Muses. As the son of a hybrid goat, he was probably a satyr (a human creature with ears, tail and hooves of a goat) and a centaur. Crotus–a satyr who lived on Mount Helicon–was the inventor of the bow and arrow and often went hunting on horseback. The muses asked Zeus to put him in heaven, and so there he was placed, in the act of demonstrating his archery abilities.
