Archer of the Earth

According to the Chinese zodiac, you are the “Earth.”

In Western astrology, you are a Sagittarius.

You are like a clear sky.

You believe that the most important thing in life is enjoyment.

However, this enjoyment has a slightly different meaning from pleasure.  The enjoyment you chase in your life is not just something passive that feels good or easy.  Your enjoyment is the process of exploring new, challenging, and exciting things.  You will spend your whole life chasing this kind of challenging enjoyment.

If you’ve been doing astrology for a while, then you already know that in Western astrology, you are classified as a Sagittarius (or to be more precise, your sun sign is Sagittarius). Sagittarius is characterized by a rash and fierce drive. They have the strength to charge straight towards their goal.

On the other hand, in the Oriental divination system (the Four Pillars of Destiny) you are represented by the Chinese character for “earth” (or more accurately, by the Chinese character for “己”). Imagine an explanseless field as far as the eye can see, a mild climate and farmers dutifully at work.  This idyllic image representing the wealth of crops produced by fertile soil also represents your mission in life to create and nurture.

Western astrology and the Four Pillars of Destiny are two different types of divination. However, they are the same in that they both determine your destiny from your birthday. The laws of the two worlds, East and West, each determine the fate that presides at the moment of your birth.

In other words, you, a human being with a complex destiny, are interpreted from the standpoint of both the East and the West. This does not mean that one of these interpretations is correct and the other incorrect. Rather, this means that both should be interpreted in a three-dimensional, complementary way.

Here we will analyze your Sagittarius characteristics and your nature as an earth sign. When interpreted together, you can be described as the “Archer of the Earth”.

Imagine an archer galloping through a vast land. The arrows he shoots hit the animals that live in the land.  You are a hunter, killing wild animals in the vast nature and making a living from it.  There is something devine, almost mythical about the way you powerfully ride your horse over the land.

The fate of the Archer of the Earth is like that of a hunter who roams freely around the earth killing his prey. He hunts both for a living and for enjoyment.  Archer of the Earth conquer the complexity of nature.  They chase and kill their prey, and use it as food for themselves and as their livelihood. Depending on how you look at it, life is like a series of thrilling, game-like activities.  Your destiny as an Archer of the Earth is to live a life full of this game-like fun.
