Am I an actual Sagittarian?

Every sun sign has their own characteristics; both in a good way and a bad way. But I think it is solely the decision one takes at the right moment along with some luck makes them successful and a better person. I am not telling how I am. But I will explain how a true Sagittarian would be and their way of life.

Characteristics/ Features of Sagittarius:
Sagittarius tends to aim their arrows of thought upward, being the incurable optimists of the zodiac. Sagittarius often looks at the sunny side of life and the silver lining to any dark cloud. The Sagittarius is part horse, there is a connection between Sagittarius and horses, be it a love of riding or an emphasis on the most powerful part of a horse: its legs and thighs. In fact, many of Sagittarians love outdoor hiking and long distance running. Consider the symbol for Sagittarius - a centaur; the rear half is horse, the upper half is a man. The horse symbolizes animal instinct - it isn't the rear half for nothing! The human symbolizes the search for that which lies beyond animal instinct. The two are always together - meaning, philosophy, religion, are divorced from instinct at their peril.

The Sagittarian motto is "It is better to know how to learn than to know." We seek knowledge and wisdom, never tiring of the quest for what is yet to come. Others enjoy being with us when we are in our outgoing and joyful mood, but we can become more sullen if we feel our wings have been clipped. Even in a restrictive situation, however, we will not lose hope--and it is this inspirational perspective that leads us to our greatest success. Sagittarius characteristics are witness to the importance of deriving meaning from experience. From experience, that is, not from books, though reading the thoughts and searches for meaning of others can help in the quest.

Ninth House: Travel
If the Third House is the House of Quick Trips, then the opposite Ninth House could be called the House of Long Distance Journeys. It's about foreign travel, higher education -- for that's travel in the mind and the potential adventure that the future holds.

Key Planet: Jupiter
Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system and as such symbolizes an expansive action. He is the king of bigger, better and more. But, of course, too much of a good thing isn't necessarily good, and Jupiter can encourage us to overspend or overindulge. Jupiter acts like a magnifying lens and can make a little opportunity look larger than life. As the key planet of Sagittarius, Jupiter encourages us to take those opportunities, to live life as an adventure and to believe in something greater than ourselves.

All pure Sagittarian have enormous potential, but by no means have all of them fulfilled the promise they display in early life. This is because one of the characteristics of the sign is a happy-go-lucky attitude, a carelessness about the consequences of actions, which sometimes results in the pure Sagittarian throwing away success when it is in his grasp. If, for example, you meet a brilliant young student who suddenly stops doing any work a few months before finals, there is a strong probability that he/she is a pure Sagittarian. The sudden and unexpected failure of a Sagittarian in some enterprise or activity in which he/she seemed destined to succeed is not always conclusive. Sagittarius is a lucky sign and destiny usually seems to afford pure Sagittarian more than one opportunity of achieving success; for them the old saying about 'as one door closes another opens' usually proves to be true.

With the Sagittarian carelessness goes a freedom-loving personality and an open and generous-hearted attitude towards life. Curiously enough, this seems to repel some people; even the most agreeable Sagittarian finds that some people try to pick quarrels with him or her. The natural talents of the Sagittarian combined with their tendency to throw chances away, result in pure Sagittarian usually achieving both great success and popularity or ending their lives as rather pathetic 'might-have-beens.

Sagittarian are always versatile and it is quite common for them to change from one career to another that, on the face of it, calls for quite different qualities. But both careers will have in common freedom from dull routine work and will give the Sagittarian a chance to use his/ her versatility and intelligence. Challenge is important to the Sagittarian, and a job which does not offer problems will never be totally satisfactory to him/her, however well paid it may be.

Element: Fire
Fire is the element of the Sagittarius. Fire signs are naturally warm and gives light and heat, but it doesn't get depleted as others feed on its warmth. One candle can bring light to a room and it won't burn any faster if ten people read from its light than if there was only one. Fire doesn't plan its next move; it isn't logical. It simply is in the moment and will burn what fuel is available without judgment or forethought. For this reason fire signs can successfully rely on their intuition and survival instincts.

The fire of Sagittarius is warming, not hot -- but that's because it's far away. It's like a light in the distance that reminds us why we are heading in that direction or the stars that have been used for navigation. This is the fire of inspiration whose heat can motivate the mind to reach out into the wilderness.

I am sure many of you would not really bother to read what have been exactly written. But I would request all of you to comment on the part and bits you have read from my blog. I am also sure that you will find many similarities with the characteristics I have mentioned above to my nature. Please Comment...
