The Zodiac Dresser: Sporty Sagittarius

Welcome to my last post of 2014, an installment of my Zodiac Dresser series in which I explore astrology through outfits. Today's post is inspired by Sagittarius, symbolized by the Centaur, a mythical half-archer-half-horse lending this sign a deep sense of physicality and sportiness. I've taken an abstract, "vibes based" approach to inspiration for this outfit and focused on Sagittarius's masculine, sporty and casual qualities.

The final fire sign in the zodiac, I compare Sagittarius to embers, warm but not intense like the youthful explosiveness of Aries or Leo. There's a casualness and independence to Sagittarian energy that's cool and breezy while simultaneously friendly, jovial and generous. Sagittarius has the enthusiastic spiritedness of fire combined with the wisdom and cheer of ruling planet Jupiter.

This sign is associated with the color royal purple; in Roman myth, Jupiter was ruler of the heavens and god of abundance and fortune. Accordingly, this sign is often considered to both be lucky as well as bring good luck. 
and now the backside...

lucky ruler of the stars,
wise archer, half beast.
Are any of you born under the sign Sagittarius?
