It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. — Aristotle
Fire: Beginnings of things. I like to think about it as spirituality, but a certain kind of spirituality. Something one takes an active part in. Fire signs are progressive in their thoughts. Fire signs stand firm on their opinions, but at the same time, are willing to learn more about subjects, especially Sagittarius. Fire signs are about growth; they are fast movers and usually creative in their own way; they have to express themselves somehow, through exercise or the arts. Without an outlet, the fiery individual will start lashing out - “burning” people, if you will.
Another theme, contributing to the theme of making difficult decisions is Venus and Mercury in Sagittarius. My best friend once told me that Sagittarius is about finding light in the dark. This is true. If you live in the northern hemisphere, the days are gradually getting shorter and shorter, and it’s hard to find light. This concept illustrates the dark undertones of Sagittarius. It’s not all optimism. There is a spiritual theme to Sagittarius, and Sagittarius is another sign very much about morality.
I find Sagittarius to be a knowledge-seeking sign. They are philosophers by nature. These are the people who like to educate, whether through a teaching profession or otherwise. There is an air of youth to the Sagittarius, and even if they are old souls, something about them is very young. I think it’s their senses of humor that keep them going. Having some Sagittarius, we have to make light of an issue somehow and humor is the way to do that. When things get complex, it’s not something that gets talked about. I see Sagittarius people are notorious secret-keepers simply due to the fact that when you talk to them, you never suspect anything is going on because they never discuss it.
Every Sagittarius I know has faced a hardship somehow. I don’t know what it is, but unfortunately Sagittarians tend to suffer from a variety of things having to do with the mind. I have seen this range from eating disorders to OCD to anxiety to depression, but it always seems to be something. In spite of this, many Sagittarians are strong-willed. A friend told me that the theme of Sagittarius is finding light in the dark. Indeed, there is some symbolism going on. Sagittarius occurs in the late fall, when the days start to get dark (in the Western hemisphere anyhow). This is the time when light starts to get scarce during the day. Sagittarius embodies a spirit made to overcome these things. Sagittarians are fighters (shit, even Christina Aguilera, a Sagittarius wrote a song about being a fighter).
And then there is the independence part of Sagittarius. Popular astrology wasn’t wrong about it, but again, it’s the WAY they say it. Saggies aren’t the LEAVE ME ALONE types of people. It’s simply this: they like to have their own space when the time calls for it. Sagittarians appear to have commitment issues because they have a no-bullshit tolerance and so when they get into a relationship and someone starts bullshit, they don’t stand for it (and this is why I love Sagittarians). This is a sign of respect. If you are to be in a friendship or romantic relationship with a Sagittarius, know that respect is key and they only pay respect when they are paid respect.

The more corrupt the state, the more laws.
And now bills were passed, not only for national objects but for individual cases, and laws were most numerous when the commonwealth was most corrupt.” —
