There will always be the allure of faraway lands for people with a Sagittarius Ascendant. Traveling, movement, and exploring new cultures and experiences are invigorating for them. The world fascinates their optimistic outlook, and needs to be active. They want to broaden their horizons.

Sagittarius Ascendants are looking for the meaning of life, what holds the world together, and what informs the people they meet. Somewhere out there, they hope they will get the answers. They have a feel for finding common ground and the connecting elements between people. 


Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the biggest planet in our solar system. In Greek mythology, Jupiter is Zeus, the most powerful of all the gods . Having Zeus by your side, as an Ascendant is lucky!
