Were you born on December 17th? If so, then according to Western astrology, your zodiac sign is Sagittarius, the sign of the Archer. This means that when you were born, the Sun was in the stars that make up the constellation known as Sagittarius. Let's dive into the basics of your horoscope!

Sagittarius Overview

Sagittarius is known as धनुस् (dhanus) in Sanskrit, which means "bow." Each sign of the zodiac is characterized by certain basic traits. Here's what defines the Sagittarius sign:

  • Sign of the Archer: Sagittarians are fortunate and righteous individuals. However, their luck and good qualities can sometimes lead them to look down on others.
  • Ruled by Jupiter: Jupiter is the planet of wisdom, spirituality, wealth, and learning. Jupiterians are religious and warm-hearted.
  • A fire sign: Those with a Sagittarius moon are temperamental, passionate, and energetic.
  • A dual sign: Persons born under this sign are adaptable and multi-talented.
  • A masculine sign: This makes the native aggressive, bold, and thick-skinned.
  • Sagittarius’s preferred gemstone is yellow sapphire: Sagittarians can also benefit from yellow topaz and citrine as well.

Traits of the Sun in Sagittarius

In Western Astrology, a person's sign is determined by the position of the Sun. If you were born on December 17th, then you're considered a Sagittarius according to most people in the Western world.

The influence of the Sun in a birth chart will change depending on its position in relation to other planets and other factors. However, the following general traits are likely to be found in a native whose Sun is in Sagittarius:

  • You are fortunate: Sagittarius is one of the signs ruled by Jupiter, the planet of prosperity and good fortune. You lead a comfortable life, with sufficient wealth to provide for yourself and your family. You are well-respected by your peers.
  • You are independent: With a strong personality, you don't like being overly dependent on others. You are confident and decisive. You never shy away from speaking your mind and standing up for what you believe in. You are also capable of defending yourself, even if it means using physical force.
  • You are drawn to the medicinal and healing arts: You have a passion for helping others, which can lead to a fruitful career in medicine or a related field. Your caring nature and sensitivity make you an excellent friend, parent, and life partner.
  • You are physically fit: You enjoy physical activity and maintain a healthy body through regular exercise. Your above-average strength and endurance allow you to excel in sports.
  • You are spiritually-inclined: Raised in a religious family, your spiritual life holds great importance. You strive to live a virtuous and noble life. For you, religion is a path meant for self-improvement and serving others.

Sagittarius Careers

Sagittarians have strong personalities and excel in leadership roles. They are ideal individuals to spearhead new projects or explore new fields. Here are some recommended careers for Sagittarius natives:

  • Authors
  • Artists
  • Scholars
  • Administrators
  • CEOs
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Investors
  • Consultants
  • Professional speakers

On the other hand, Sagittarians are ethically-minded and may not do well in industries involving deception or exploitation, such as adult entertainment, casinos, large-scale animal agriculture, logging, mining, or tobacco.

Sagittarius Mantras

A mantra is a short phrase that uplifts and cleanses our mind, heart, and consciousness. By practicing mantra meditation, we can experience relief from suffering and negativity. Two mantras that can benefit Sagittarians are:

ॐ वामनाय नमः (Om vamanaya namaha)

The Vedas contain many mantras customized for each individual based on their unique circumstances. However, some mantras are universal. The following maha-mantra, or "super mantra," is beneficial for people born in any zodiac sign:

हरे कृष्ण हरे कृष्ण कृष्ण कृष्ण हरे हरे हरे राम हरे राम राम राम हरे हरे (Hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare Hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare)
