According to the more accurate Sidereal system, those born between December 16 and January 14 are Sagittarian.
Under the outdated Tropical system, those born between November 22 and December 21 are Sagittarian.
(Note: the Sidereal system is more accurate, because it takes into account an astronomical phenomenon called the precession of the equinoxes)
As the mutable fire sign, governed by an expansive planet, the symbolic focus of the sign is connected to the principle of exploration and evolution. Correspondingly, Sagittarians are reputed to be drawn towards travel and philosophy, and to enjoy social contacts, meeting new people, and exploring other cultures. They are said to be broad-visioned, tolerant in their views, mainly concerned with the 'big picture' but with little patience for the details.
Famous people with the Sagittarius sign include:
Jimi Hendrix, Billy the Kid, Ludwig van Beethoven, Tycho Brahe, Winston Churchill, Noel Coward, Walt Disney, Little Richard, Bruce Lee, C. S. Lewis, Mary Queen of Scots, Harpo Marx, John Milton, Nostradamus, Josef Stalin, and Mark Twain.
They are most compatible with the other fire signs, Aries and Leo.
Those born under the sign of Sagittarius display a "larger than life" character as one which values honesty yet has an inclination towards exaggeration, and a lack of subtlety by which they are known for their bluntness yet often unaware of their ability to cause anguish in others.
