Sagittarius As the color of spirituality and awareness, lush purple pushes Sagittarius’ philosophical mind toward enlightenment and openness. Also a color of abundance, purple encourages Sagittarius’ natural luck and positive nature, and drives it to continuously broaden its horizons.
Sagittarius in mythology, and more. The constellations Sagittarius and Centaurus are both supposed to represent a centaur – a creature with the upper torso of a man and the body and legs of a horse. Historically, centaurs might have really been cowboys, using horses to round up cattle in ancient Greece.
According to Greek myth, the centaurs were the offspring of Ixion and the cloud nymph Nephele. Apparently, Sagittarius’ drawn-out bow and arrow originated from the Mesopotamian archer god, and this constellation might not have always represented the centaur Chiron.
It’s said that the Greeks associated Sagittarius with Crotus the satyr – another type of part man, part horse and part goat monstrosity. Quite possibly, the Romans first identified the constellation Sagittarius with Chiron, the wise and kindly centaur.
Here’s something that distinguishes Sagittarius the Archer from the other 13 constellations of the zodiac. The sun shines in front of this constellation on the December 21 solstice.
Also, the ecliptic – the sun’s yearly pathway in front of the backdrop stars – intersects the galactic equator in Sagittarius. Although the sun crosses the galactic equator twice a year every year, much ado was made about the alignment of the December solstice sun with the galactic equator in 2012. Actually, if we are to accept the galactic coordinates as defined by the IAU in 1959, the solstice points were in alignment with the galactic equator in 1998. By 2012, the time had long passed.
