In astrology, Sagittarius refers to those born 23 November through 22 December, and is the ninth sign of the Zodiac. Those who believe in astrology consider it a Mutable Fire sign which is said to adapt to new situations and environments with energetic flexibility. Sagittarians are often either world travelers or they tend to think in a global way. Some astrologers note that they sometimes procrastinate as a means of escape from their duties and responsibilities.

This sign is said to be ruled by Jupiter, the planet associated with good luck, wealth, knowledge, and giving. But, on the flip side, astrologers warn that Jupiter can be related to overindulgence, selfishness, and deception. The astrological symbol for Sagittarius is the Archer. The Archer is a centaur, which is half man and half horse. Astrologers usually agree that when Sagittarians aim their arrows, they often get what they want.

However, Sagittarius is said to be so freedom-loving as to sometimes be directionless or lawless. Many astrologers see it as the bachelor sign. When Sagittarians are in a relationship, they are usually thought to be very devoted as long as they do not have an impulsive streak. They are thought to be very blunt at times and lacking in the tact that Libra is known for.


Those born under this sign are often said to be optimistic and intelligent. Astrologers often connect this personality with higher learning, publishing, and sports. Most astrologers say that this is a very sociable sign.

The color associated with Sagittarius is said to be purple; and it is thought to rule the thighs and hips. The metal for this sign is tin. Keywords for the this personality are free spirited, sincere, independent, and direct.

The other Fire signs, Leo and Aries, are said to be the most compatible with Sagittarius. A similar energy is said to connect these signs. Libra, Capricorn, and Aquarius personalities may also be compatible.

Gemini, Cancer, Virgo may be the least compatible signs unless there are other compatible aspects in charts. Sagittarians may find Geminis too nervous, Cancers too clingy, and Virgos too critical. Another Sagittarian may not be compatible for the long run, especially if both people in the relationship tend to be very independent. Taurus and Pisces could have neutral compatibility with Sagittarius. Famous Sagittarians include Mark Twain, Tina Turner, Anna Nicole Smith, Ben Stiller, and Lucy Liu.

@momothree: Daniel Wayne Smith died when he went to visit his mom and new baby sister in Nassau, Bahamas, on September 10, 2006. Daniel was an extremely shy person, often not wanting to appear on his mother’s television show. He also wanted to be a film producer and had worked on a project with his mother.

Daniel arrived at the hospital late on Saturday September 9, 2007 and stayed with his mother in her hospital room. Anna had tried to wake her son on the morning of September 10, 2006. He was unresponsive, so she called the nurse. After 22 minutes of CPR, he was pronounced dead.

Daniel’s cause of death was a mixture of methadone, an analgesic, Zoloft and Lexapro. At his funeral, Anna had them open the casket and tried to get in it with him. Daniel was laid to rest at New Providence, Bahamas, on October 19, 2006.

@cmsmith10: Anna Nicole Smith was found unresponsive in a hotel room at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, FL, on February 8, 2007. Anna Nicole Smith had become a star when she married J. Howard Marshall a Texas oil tycoon. When Marshall died on August 8, 1995, she was in a lengthy court battle with Marshall’s son over his will.

Smith was considered a “wild child” for many years, but had seemed to settle down in 2006 when she became pregnant. She had always doted on her son Daniel Wayne Smith and was happy to be having another child.

She gave birth to a daughter Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern on September 7, 2007. While Daniel was visiting his sister in the hospital, he passed away. This made Smith extremely depressed and she wanted to be with Daniel.

Her death was a deadly mixture of chloral hydrate, benzodiazepines, Klonopin, Ativan, Serax, Valium, Benadryl and Topamax.
