"Centaur at the Village Blacksmith's Shop" by Arnold Bocklin
"Why not seize the pleasure at once?"
--Jane Austen, author and Sagittarius
Many modern Pagans prefer to pick names based on astrological signs. Yes, I know I just finished doing a series of posts very similar to this on the old blog, but this time I'm not limiting myself to thirteen names. Llewellyn's Complete Book of Names by K. M. Sheard is an excellent resource for finding names to go with specific astrological signs, so if you want even more options than the ones I list here go find that book.
Today, the sun enters Sagittarius. Sagittarius usually runs from November 22 to December 23 depending on the year. The symbol of Sagittarians is the centaur. In Greek mythology centaurs often give into their animalistic impulses, but they are also wise, adventurous, and brave. These are qualities that Sagittarians embody. Sagittarians are generally easygoing people that have no problems making friends wherever they go. They love to learn and have a great sense of idealism. However, Sagittarius is a fire sign, so they can have a nasty temper. Their blind faith in the goodness of the world can get them into trouble, and their need for adventure can make them seem irresponsible.
