Positive Traits [change]
Negative Characteristics [change]
The Sagittarius has some very good characteristics, but with some very bad ones too. This is because they have two personalities, because the Centaur (Sagittarius' symbol), is half horse half person.
The Sagittarius's two personalities:
- the animal (horse): (aggressive, rebellious, sexual, free-roaming, etc.),
- and the person: (clever, philosophical, open-minded, honest etc.),
are always fighting each other. This everyday fight inside a Sagittarius' personality is seen in Sagittarius' sign, as an arrow lifting a heavy cross.
