Were you born on December 2nd? If so, then according to Western astrology, your zodiac sign is Sagittarius, the sign of the Archer. This means that when you were born, the Sun was in the stars that make up the constellation known as Sagittarius. Learn the basics of your horoscope below.

Sagittarius Overview

Sagittarius is known as धनुस् (dhanus) in Sanskrit, which means "bow." Each sign of the zodiac is characterized by certain basic traits. Let's take a look at the general makeup of the Sagittarius sign:

  • Sign of the Archer: Sagittarians are fortunate and righteous individuals. However, their luck and good qualities can sometimes lead them to look down on others.
  • Ruled by Jupiter: Jupiter is the planet of wisdom, spirituality, wealth, and learning. Those born under Sagittarius are religious and warm-hearted.
  • A fire sign: Those with a Sagittarius moon are temperamental, passionate, and energetic.
  • A dual sign: Persons born under this sign are adaptable and multi-talented.
  • A masculine sign: This makes the native aggressive, bold, and thick-skinned.
  • Sagittarius's preferred gemstone is yellow sapphire: Sagittarians can also benefit from yellow topaz and citrine as well.

Traits of the Sun in Sagittarius

In Western Astrology, a person's sign is determined by the position of the Sun. If you were born on December 2nd, you're considered a Sagittarius according to most people in the Western world. The influence of the Sun in a birth chart will change depending on various factors, but here are some general traits you're likely to find in a native whose Sun is in Sagittarius:

  • You are fortunate: Sagittarius is one of the signs ruled by Jupiter, the planet of prosperity and good fortune. You lead a comfortable life and are well-respected by your peers.
  • You are independent: You have a strong personality and don't like being overly dependent on others. You are confident and willing to speak your mind and stand up for what you believe in.
  • You are drawn to the medicinal and healing arts: You have a passion for helping others, which can lead to a fruitful career in medicine or a related field.
  • You are physically fit: You enjoy physical activity and strive to keep your body healthy through regular exercise. Your above-average strength and endurance make you excel in sports.
  • You are spiritually-inclined: Your spiritual life is important to you, and you strive to live a virtuous and noble life. Religion is more than mere dogma and ritual to you; it is a path for bettering oneself and serving others.

Sagittarius Careers

Sagittarians have strong personalities and do well in leadership roles. They are ideal persons to spearhead new projects or explore new fields. They can also succeed in creative professions.

Recommended careers: Sagittarius natives make talented authors, artists, scholars, administrators, CEOs, entrepreneurs, investors, consultants, and professional speakers.

Careers to avoid: Sagittarians are ethically-minded and wouldn't do well in industries that involve deception or exploitation. For example, adult entertainment, casinos, large-scale animal agriculture, logging, mining, or tobacco.

Sagittarius Mantras

A mantra is a short phrase that uplifts and cleanses our mind, heart, and consciousness. Most suffering takes place within the mind, and mantra meditation can bring relief from negativity. Here are two mantras that can benefit Sagittarians:

  • ॐ वामनाय​ नमः Om vamanaya namaha
