Mythology

 


Sagittarius is located on the Milky Way. It is one of the twelve constellations to make the Zodiac, the most distinctive aspect of Sagittarius is the group of stars within it, which look like a teapot, complete with spout and handle. Sagittarius is often thought to represent a centaur, half man, half horse, and is usually considered to be Chiron, identified with the constellation of Centaurus. However, Sagittarius holds a drawn bow, not in character with Chiron who was known for his kindness and wisdom. Some say that Chiron was created to guide Jason and the Argonauts as they sailed on the Argo.
