It is to enable those experiences to be intelligible and generally recognized within the total framework of an ideal world." —Bruce Lee, born November 27, 1940

Insights to a Sagittarian Relationship

Sagittarians are ardent, sincere and straightforward in relationships. They are generally conventional and in control of their sexual natures.

They prefer a solid home base, but as a place to return to when they have completed a particular travel venture. They have a compelling need to feel free, and sometimes make this choice at the expense of a 9 to 5 career, or even a family.

In friendship they are reliable, and can be counted on. However, they have a quick temper and a biting tongue, often speaking before giving forethought to the full effect of their words. Their rage may pass quickly, but the stinging of their comments often remains.

The Lore of Sagittarius in Mythology

Centaurs belong primarily to Greek mythology. Within one form, they combine a savage and untamed animal nature with an ancient wisdom of human culture. The wisest, and in some references, oldest of the centaurs was Chiron. Tamer, perhaps, than his kindred, Chiron was taken in and educated by the gods. Rather than selfishly retain this knowledge, Chiron tutored the great heroes of Greece. Among his charges were no less than Achilles, Acteon, Jason and Hercules.

In a tragic irony, Chiron was wounded with a poisoned arrow by his student and friend, Hercules. Being immortal, the centaur's agony was unbearable. Chiron forsook his immortality, and gave the mantle to Prometheus. Zeus set Chiron's image in the night sky to honor the memory of this noble teacher. To this day we recognize his form as the constellation of Sagittarius.

Castor and Pollux were the sons of Jupiter and Leda, and brothers of Helen of Troy. Castor was the manager of horses; Pollux, a famous soldier. Chiron trained them, and they sailed with the Argonauts in search of the Golden Fleece. The brothers are associated with the sign of Gemini, which is the complementary opposite of Sagittarius in the zodiac.

"Humor is the great thing, the saving thing. The minute it crops up, all our hardnesses yield, all our irritations and resentments flit away and a sunny spirit takes their place."
