Element and Quality of Sagittarius
Sagittarius is a mutable Fire sign – energized by the element of Fire to inspire and approach life with an enthusiastic fervor, but with an adaptability of the mutable signs. Ruled by Jupiter and sharing that planet's optimism and desire to find meaning in life, Sagittarius cares less for being in charge than to live a life of meaning, to experience a grand adventure. Like other mutable signs, Sagittarius meets life with a flexibility of spirit, but like other Fire signs there is a tendency for the ego to take center stage. Sagittarius is famously oriented towards the search for Truth and loves travel which helps to expand one's point of view and awareness of meaning in life.
