A Brief Background On Sagittarius

Sagittarius is the ninth astrological sign on the Chinese Calendar. The astrological sign is associated with the constellation Sagittarius that spans the 240 to the 270th degrees of the zodiac. Under the tropical zodiac, the sun transits this sign between late November and late December. The Greeks associated the constellation with Chiron, a centaur that was mentored by Achilles, the hero of the Trojan War.

In astrology, Sagittarius is part of the Fire Trigon alongside Aries and Leo. The symbol of the zodiac sign is a centaur armed with arrows which were based on the Greeks.

It can also symbolize a victorious life because no matter you face numerous problems and challenges in life, you will still come out of those problems victorious and stronger because of your will.

Usual Designs Of A Sagittarius Tattoo

Sagittarius Tattoo designs often depict a centaur but there are a lot of interpretations out there. Some prefer their Sagittarius to be a male centaur running while drawing a bow and others prefer their Sagittarius to be a woman preparing to aim their bow and arrow. More intricate designs often show their Sagittarius tattoo design as a Greek centaur warrior in full armor while drawing a bow and arrow.

Other designs for the Sagittarius are much simpler than the Greek centaur warrior approach. A simpler design would be a simple bow and arrow in an aiming position while others would just have the constellation of Sagittarius be inked on their bodies with the lines connecting the stars composing the constellation to have a more abstract approach.
