Were you born on December 3rd? 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. Let's dive into the basics of your horoscope below.

Sagittarius Overview

Sagittarius, known as "धनुस् (dhanus)" in Sanskrit, is symbolized by the bow. Each sign of the zodiac is characterized by certain basic traits. Here's an overview of the Sagittarius sign:

  • Sign of the Archer: Sagittarians are fortunate and righteous individuals, although their luck and good qualities can sometimes lead them to look down on others.
  • Ruled by Jupiter: Jupiter, the planet of wisdom, spirituality, wealth, and learning, governs Sagittarius. Jupiterians 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 3rd, then 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. However, the following general traits are likely to be found 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, have sufficient wealth, and are well-respected by your peers.
  • You are independent: With a strong personality, you don't like being overly dependent on others. Confidence is your strength, and once you make a decision, you stick to it. You are never afraid to speak your mind and stand up for what you believe in. You're also capable of defending yourself physically if necessary.
  • You are drawn to the medicinal and healing arts: Passionate about helping others, you have the potential for a fruitful career in medicine or a related field. Caring, kind, and sensitive, you excel as a friend, parent, and life partner.
  • You are physically fit: Enjoying physical activity, you prioritize keeping your body healthy through regular exercise. With above-average strength and endurance, you have the potential to excel in sports.
  • You are spiritually-inclined: Raised in a religious family, your spiritual life holds great importance. Living a virtuous and noble life is your aim. For you, religion is a path meant for personal growth and serving humanity.

Sagittarius Careers

Sagittarians possess strong personalities and thrive in leadership roles. They are ideal individuals to spearhead new projects or explore uncharted territories. They often hold others to high expectations and can also excel in creative professions.

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

Careers to avoid: Being ethically-minded, Sagittarians may find industries involving deception or exploitation unsuitable. 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. By practicing mantra meditation, we can experience relief from suffering and negativity.

Sagittarians can particularly benefit from meditating with the following mantra:

ॐ वामनाय​ नमः Om vamanaya namaha

The Vedic wisdom texts offer various mantras customized for each individual's unique circumstances. However, a universal mantra beneficial for people born in any zodiac sign is the following maha-mantra, or "super mantra":
