If you were born between November 22 and December 21, you may know you’re a Sagittarius. You may even know that you’re such a Sagittarius. But when you dig deep, what even is a Sagittarius? Represented by the centaur, the half-horse-half-archer, your cosmic avatar represents optimism and ambition on a global scale.
To help answer that big question, we’ve put together our own zodiac sign cheat sheet to guide you through the basics. Because if anyone needs to know you, it’s you.
Sagittarius’ sun sign is Sagittarius, but you knew that already. As a fire sign, Sagittarius is all about energy, action and motivation.

Because this sign’s modality is mutable, you tend to be flexible and use your passion and intellect to create connections between people and ideas that normally would not interact. You are the cosmic networker. Ruled by Jupiter, known as the “greater benefic,” he expands all he touches. Wherever Jupiter travels in your chart, he brings expansion, abundance and relief.
