“I am generous and free.”
Sagittarius is the most adventurous and exploratory Sun Sign in the #Zodiac. Sagittarius is also considered to be the happiest of all signs. Sagittarius is a curious sign with the high energy required to wander around and explore its curiosities. They value both mental and physical freedom. Not only do they love to travel the world but they also love to explore their own mind in philosophical ways. Due to their free nature, they resent confinement and small details. Those born from this Sun Sign are enthusiastic and optimistic extroverts. They are idealists who don't like the concept of "no". They love taking risks, making them the ideal pioneer.
What to Know about Sagittarius
Sagittarius is a Fire Sign, along with Aries and Leo. Fire is a masculine element that combines the Zodiac qualities of hot and dry. The fiery nature of Sagittarius keeps their energy and curiosity burning throughout their lives. Sagittarius is also one of the most generous signs in the Zodiac, sharing their light with everyone they encounter. The totem of Sagittarius is the Centaur. Sagittarius translates to "the archer" in Latin. Sagittarius is derived from the story of Chiron, the half-man half-horse who offered up his immortality to replace Prometheus and free him from his punishment for giving fire to mankind. Zeus acknowledged Chiron's kindness and honored him in the night sky. To this day, Sagittarius is known for its generosity.
Sagittarius' ruling planet is Jupiter, which is the largest planet in our solar system. Jupiter encourages prosperity and progress, pushing a Sagittarius to achieve their goals. Due to its size, many look up to the energy that radiates from Jupiter. Jupiter widens a Sagittarius' horizons, allowing them to explore until their heart is content.
Dian Wijaya, Keeper of Sagittarius
“You taught me that the things we are told to aim for shouldn't always be our target. Well, I aim to be like you, dad. Every single day.”
Dian Wijaya is the 25-year-old Keeper of Sagittarius in my YA Fantasy, SON OF THE SUN. Dian is from Indonesia and has bright red eyes. He is the oldest of the new generation of Zodiac Keepers, only being surpassed by the 45-year-old Jabari who is from the previous generation. He is a gifted archer and tracker, making it easy for him to hunt. Dian is haunted by his family's past and he is determined to uncover the secrets that have been kept from him. His father disappeared when he was a child, causing his mother to slip into insanity and be taken away to an institution. He is now being followed by a mystical tiger that shows him inexplicable visions.
