The sign of Sagittarius corresponds to the Hebrew month of Kislev. It is the central column of the fire signs, ruled by Jupiter. The letter Samech created the sign of Sagittarius.

Sagittarius in Hebrew is called Keshet, or rainbow. Keshet is represented by the centaur, the mythological half-man, half-horse figure who hunts with a bow and arrow. The figure represents the struggle within the heart between good and evil.

The letter Gimel created Jupiter, which controls expansion. Jupiter represents the desire to learn, to know, and the fields of science, biology, education, art and music. Sagittarians are born optimists; for them everything is always okay and always arranged in the best way possible. Sagittarians feel they can solve all problems and will do all things required of them.

Sagittarians are prone to over-optimism, exaggeration, mockery, gambling and light-headedness. They are natural philosophers, teachers, lovers, communicators, and friends. They like to travel, they love their freedom and space, and they are interested in world exploration, as well as the study of human behavior, culture and religion. They share their knowledge with whoever seeks it. They love life and can be quite mischievous children.

Because Sagittarius is the central column (air element) of the fire signs, it has the additional influence of air. Air fuels the fire and enables it to grow and expand, this is why Sagittarius can be a channel for any job in communication that combines knowledge with humanity.

Sagittarians are adventurous people who make excellent drivers (even race car drivers!) and pilots. They love sports and challenge their destiny by taking unnecessary risks. Everything they do is on a large scale, with the help of Jupiter, which expands the Sagittarian's mind in business, social, and romantic endeavors.
