What symbol is Sagittarius?
The word Sagittarius is Latin for “archer.” And this is expressed in the Sagitarrius symbol: an archer’s arrow. ♐
Sagittarius is also sometimes represented as a centaur—a character from Greek mythology that has the upper body of a man and the lower half of a horse.
In sticking with the theme of the hunt, the centaur also has a bow and arrow.
The names on this list include those that speak to the thrill of the hunt, a spirit of adventure, and the love of horses that is such an important part of this zodiac sign.
