Sagittarius, November 23 - December 21 is the ninth sign of the
zodiac. It's symbolized by a centaur, a mythical creature, which is
half man, half horse, famed as a wild hunter, and usually depicted
holding a bow and arrow. This sign is associated with seeking
knowledge, new challenges, and with a love of travel. Sagittarius
is an enthusiastic fire sign and also a restless mutable sign.
Sagittarius is the sign of the philosopher. People with planets in
Sagittarius are seekers and explorers. Known to be generous and
expansive, big ideas and grand visions fill them with enthusiasm.

careless about detail.
