If your birthday falls between November 23rd and December 21st, you are a Sagittarius. You are a fire sign, and your ruling planet is Jupiter. Being born in the ninth house of the zodiac predisposes you to interests in travel and philosophy. Does this sound like you?
The zodiac has a long, interesting and somewhat obscure history. The twelve signs that were developed in the Western world were remarkably similar to those developed in ancient India. The Chinese, who have a different sign from year to year, rather than month to month, still employed the number twelve in their scheme.
I regard the zodiac as equal parts astronomy, psychology and art. Enjoy it for the guidance it offers, its beautiful imagery and intriguing symbols, or just appreciate how the ancients could have discovered the constellations and mapped their movements, all without telescopes or even Bic pens!
