Santa Claus is the best-known member of the Sagittarius sign.
Jesus was not a Capricorn. Pisces makes more sense. Just think of the symbology; loaves, fishes, redemption and turning water to wine. He was often barefoot or in sandals. He had a broad acquaintance and enjoyed a cryptic romance. Think also Father issues and martyrdom.
The olden day Christians just changed his birthday to bump off the far more popular Pagan celebration of Saturnalia. Or to over-shadow the Solstice deities; Mithras, Apollo, Vesta, Ishtar, Astarte and a host of others.
All the overlaying plus modern consumerist shills (buy more stuff or the whole economy goes to hell news stories) can be confusing. But Santa, at least, is straightforward.
Santa Claus Has All The Signature Sagittarius Sign Traits
He is undeniably a creature of the Sagittarius sign. Proof? The signature Sagittarius traits are that they’re candid and beyond your judgment. They’re not good with fences or formality. People criticize them for being feckless or rootless, but they’re free-souls.
Check out these ways in which Santa adheres to the Sagittarius archetype:
- An early adopter of the Four Hour Work Week
– Santa lives and works on his terms.
- The classic Sagittarius enjoys remote and wild places, away from cities and the rigorous demands of formality.
– Santa lives at the North Pole, in a hut whose location is secret.
- Santa was working as an influencer
– (for the beverage known as Coke) well before that became mainstream.
- The unusual mode of transport
– Like many Sagittarius nomads, Santa shuns mainstream travel methods. In his case, it’s an airborne sleigh. It’s classic, but also able to outrun planes, drones, and missiles.
- Prefers larger animals for pets
– Santa keeps reindeer!
Santa Is Apparently Partnered But Nobody Ever Sees The Partner
– Santa’s whole identity is that he is laden down with gifts, always.
- Sagittarius people like to talk in broad, breezy abstractions
– Santa’s assessments of people’s behavior is a basic “good” or “bad”.
- Socially Eccentric
– Santa will only come into houses via the chimney and even then only three days after the Solstice, once a year.
– Any host/hostess who has tried to pin down a Sagittarius – or ANY Mutable sign – to an event, will sigh with recognition at their disdain for convivial normality.
- A Bon Vivant
– Like the ruler of Sagittarius, Jupiter, of whom Santa is a kind of vulgarised version, he likes to project jollity and that he is a person of lusty appetites.
- Would rather snack on ‘left-out’ tipples and party food
– rather than slow down to eat a ‘real meal.’
- Enjoys costumes more than “normal” clothes
– Santa is not into streetwear; he likes the red, fake (I hope it’s not Polar Bear) fur-trimmed pantsuit with shiny black boots and he sticks to it.
- Has a hearty laugh
– Say what you want about Sagittarius people and their various quirks, they have Qi boosting laughs.
- Is apparently partnered but nobody ever sees the partner
– Instead, there are elves. They’re part “good friends” of Santa the Sagittarius – part minion/social secretary/diplomat.
