Zodiac: Sagittarius, The Ninth House

Sagittarius Zodiac Sign

Sagittarius is the ninth astrological sign, making it the ninth house of the zodiac. The period of Sagittarius’ reign falls between November 23rd and December 21st but this date can vary depending on your source. Sagittarius is symbolised by the almighty Archer and falls under the element of fire, making those born under the sign incredibly fearless and ready to take risks. It is ruled by the planet Jupiter and as the ninth house of the zodiac, it represents our need to travel.

Those born under Sagittarius are incredibly adventurous and are often oozing with explorer vibes - if there’s one thing that a Sagittarius hates, it’s being in the same place for too long. Sagittarius signs are very energetic and curious about life, and because they have a need for travel unlike any other sign. They value freedom and like to experience things first hand. They don’t like to be held back from their dreams and desires, they have a determination to follow them - if a Sagittarius wants to do something, they will do it.

Sagittarius are represented by the archer for a reason, they shoot for the stars. They are head strong and know what they want, and are prepared to do whatever it takes to succeed. They are articulate when it comes to planning and are able to turn any idea into a plan of action with the click of their fingers.  And you can be sure that they’ll follow that plan through to every little detail.

Sagittarius signs are in love with the idea of expansion. They live to learn and grow. They don’t believe in barriers, especially barriers that may stop them achieving the growth that they seek. Sagittarius is larger than life. They are philosophical on every level and are known for seeking truth in everything they come across. They like to expand their knowledge, and even better when an adventurous is thrown into the mix. They are loud and proud, and will stop at nothing. With a Sagittarius, you may end up finding your very own truth. 

On the downside, because of their fast-paced energy and head strong ways, Sagittarius can often become impulsive and reckless. This is down to the Fire sign in them. They are so sure of what they want that they can often jump in head first before checking what’s below. When things go wrong, they can get a little frustrated and then the fire sign in them can come out.  They can also let their mouth run away with them at times. Think before you speak, is definitely a motto that a Sagittarius overlooks from time to time. 



Sagittarius is ruled by the element of fire and this is very obvious in their character. They’re incredibly energetic and are always looking for their next adventure. They have fiery passion running through their veins. As the third fire sign - after Aries and Leo- they are able to channel both Aries’ leadership and Leo’s creativity into a blaze of action and inspiration. 

As the ninth house in astrology, Sagittarius represents travelling on a grand scale, foreign countries, adventures, learning new languages and expanding the mind through experience. This house also represents religion and philosophy through higher learning and your ability to grasp certain concepts.

As we are all aware some signs are more compatible together than others. Every sign represents a different type of personality, and sometimes those personalities clash. Sagittarius are more compatible with it her fire signs Aries and Leo, and air signs Libra and Aquarius. They are least compatible with earth signs Taurus and Capricorn.
