Sagittarius the Hero
True Sagittarius: Dec 18-Jan 18
Illustration By Hiroko Sakai
From our experience, Sagittarians are the ones who make it with sheer guts and sacrifice. A lot of famous and driven people turn out to be this sign. They can never stop because they are never satisfied with themselves. They won't be fulfilled until they are given the respect they crave. And that has to come from the rest of the world. They have to get us to believe them. If we can believe, they can believe.
The runner, the jumper, the true believer—hot tempered Sagittarians are aiming at us, to teach, woo, inspire, challenge, to triumph over our ignorance--whatever it takes to get their voice heard. Sooner or later, they are bound to injure our feelings. Don't blame the Sagittarius; they're just doing their duty to the higher calling, and they will try anything to be relevant. The struggle for a Sagittarius is never over, they are tireless workers and fighters for their version of the truth—even if it hurts, and even if it isn't true.
The Sexy Sagittarius
"I always liked those moments of epiphany, when you have the next destination."
–Brad Pitt, sidereal Sagittarius, born Dec 18, 1963. Incidentally, Angelina Jolie, his partner, is a sexy sidereal Taurus female, whose down-to-Earth sexiness and home-body aesthetic make this a good love match.
Sagittarius are Jupiter’s PR people, and they’re on a mission to enrich and expand our universe. They think big. Born leaders, the Sagittarius is our hero, and is an admitted hero-worshiper, whom they need to look up to and to aspire to. Inspiration and optimism are the name of the game, what Sagittarius lives for, and for which it will gladly die. The life of a Sagittarius is the proliferation of his beliefs (or fears). In the former case, he or she is a beacon of hope; in the latter, a cruel despot.
The Sagittarius Tyrant
“Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.”
—Josef Stalin, sidereal Sagittarius, Dec. 21, 1879. Stalin murdered and tortured millions of his own citizens, singlehandedly crushing everything the original Russian Bolshevik revolution had accomplished, using the vernacular of the revolution. He "waved the red flag to destroy it."
Sagittarians are fiery people, they are burning up in a furious rate, whether like a hot coal, or a white-blue flame. If their fuel is bad, they get a weak fire, leaving acidic residues that leak out through the sweat glands, injuring the tissue. Pernicious bacteria will then enter and cause infections and acne. Eventually, these bad eating habits will saturate the entire body with toxic sludge, and this can result in a serious accumulation of triglycerides and other plaque in the veins, and heart disease.
Sagittarius will meet a early death, or suffer infirmities if they persist in a diet they select with the tastebuds of a child. With a good, high-roughage diet, your fats can be ignited into hot-blooded energy. The adult Sagittarius will have to face this core issue of necessary nutrition. It won't go away!
The Sagittarius Stallion
“I don't know how tall I am or how much I weigh. Because I don't want anybody to know my identity. I'm like a superhero. Call me Basketball Man.”
—LeBron James, sidereal Sagittarius, born Dec. 30, 1984, is popularly known as King James, and is the youngest player to set so many records in the NBA. His mother has said of him: “He doesn’t want it for the money or for the fame like everybody thinks. He wants to play [in the NBA] because that’s his dream.”
The thighs; the Gluteus Maximus, the largest muscles in the body; your two galloping horses. Your sign is born to run, play! If you’ve ever ridden a horse, you know! Hypoglycemia is the ruin of a good pair of legs. Sagittarians have to make sure that their glucose levels are stable, and their sources of carbohydrates are clean burning and long lasting. Both males and females should not allow their ankles to swell with water retention.
Sagittarius Factoid: They can be painfully BLUNT in conversation.
The Soulful Sagittarius
“You can hate me. You can go out there and say anything you want about me, But you will love me later because I told you the truth.”
—Mary J. Blige, sidereal Sagittarius, born Jan. 11, 1971. The only female singer with real hiphop cred, Blige has extended her soulful appeal to all genres. She is a recipient of nine Grammy Awards and four American Music Awards, and has recorded eight multi-platinum albums. She is the only artist with Grammy Award wins in R&B, Rap, Gospel, and Pop. More Sagittarius Quotes
All pain is muscle pain. Sagittarians are like one big muscle. Muscle injury can take the wind out of a Sagittarius, even make them forsake their characteristic indomitable courage. Muscles need care and feeding like other organs. Muscle pain means that a muscle can’t do its work; you cannot rush the healing of your muscles. If time is your number one medicine to heal muscle injury, then, Vitamin E is your number two. (more info about this below)
Boundless energy, quick recovery. You are an inspiration. Sagittarius is an intoxicating mix of the sexual power of the beast and the worldly vision of the philosopher. No one can corral you except for yourself. Your life is one long search for personal and societal independence. Freedom or death!
The Myth of Chiron
A tiny, bright comet whizzes through space like a fractal freak of nature. Breaking away from the deep space cordon of the centaur asteroid belt, this icy rock spins on its wild path alone, not yet captured by any planet. Discovered in 1977 By Charles Kowal, it was named Chiron, after the centaur in Greek Mythology. MORE
Beware the hidden enemies: undigested foods (due to lack of beneficial bacteria in the stomach) and fats and sugars. Your swollen kidneys, rough skin; water retention, body odor are all signs of too much fatty meats, starchy pasta, unhealthy white flour, pernicious sugar and dairy, all of which rotten remains resonate through your every pore.
Your tastes may run to the bread, wine, cheese lifestyle of the sidereal Taurus Omar Khayyam, but the Sagittarius needs roughage. Like many animal-archetypes, your brain wants meat, your stomach needs whole grains, and greens. The greens that the prototype horse would graze, such as collard, kale, mustard, or turnip greens. Real greens contain the vitamin A and calcium you need for clear skin and a pleasing personality. To help digestion, Sag should make full use of fermented foods like miso, umeboshi salt plums, Kimchi, pickled daikon, or kombucha. Sagittarius ideas may from the future, but the diet ought to be from the past.
By the way, Popeye was barking up the wrong tree: spinach is too high in purines and will cause a build up of uric acid in the blood, so you should avoid it and other high-purine food. This category of rich foods really includes everything Sagittarius loves, sweets, fats and includes beer and wine, and other alcoholic beverages.
Full of bluster and confidence, Sagittarians are blindsided by their own health issues. They can’t heal themselves. A helter-skelter diet comes back to haunt Sagittarius. This can range from craving fatty foods (which cause bad complexion) or just over-eating in general. The Sagittarius is likely to lick his plate clean. One general solution to Sag emotional problems sometimes can be cured by running or horse back riding.
The Sagittarian Sparrow
"I want to make people cry even when they don't understand my words."
—Edith Piaf, beloved French songstress, born Dec. 19, 1915, may have personified her country's dichotomy, between the sublime and the degraded. She defiantly lived her life as if "death does not exist"—another quote of hers. The title of her signature song is Je Ne Regrette Rien (I regret nothing).
The healing helpers.
Vitamin and mineral supplements are ideal for Sagittarians, who always overtax themselves and need the extra nutrients and enzymes. A daily Megadose of 3 to 12 grams of Ascorbate (vitamin C) will liberate you from colds and flu. Cure your hot temper with Calcium/magnesium supplements. For bad sinuses: take 100,000 I.U. of vitamin A and 400 I.U. of D until the mucus pours out of you. For ALL muscle problems, or just to pump up your libido, take as much 100% natural Vitamin E as you can afford.
Avoid acetates and synthetic Vitamin E; look for “D-alpha-tocopheral” only! Unfortunately, the vitamin industry uses mostly cheap substitutes. (Recommended Vitamins)
Don’t believe the hype, especially your own! Hot fire needs fuel and oxygen. For Sagittarius this is a diet of whole grains and a supplement of anti-oxidants, such as Vitamin A, D and E. This is the material side of health. The mental side is to have Sagittarius replenish their strength. Getting physically run down can lead to depression, paranoia, alienation. Sagittarius can keep going even when they are physically in a wreck, with only half their faculties working, burning the candle at both ends. It may be that when Sagittarius admits to disease, they admit to defeat, and all hope is lost. However, facing reality can be a great experience of clarity for Sag. Your fears of losing hero status may come true, but remember: Time heals all wounds.
