Sagittarius Symbol and Astrology Sign Glyph

The Sagittarius symbol, or glyph is designed to depict the Centaur or Archer. This is the Sagittarius horoscope symbol and the character that represents this zodiac sign.

Each zodiac sign has a special symbol, or glyph, that’s associated with the mythology behind it. For example, Libra is ruled by balance and harmony, so its glyph resembles the Scales of Justice. Sagittarius is symbolized by the mythical Centaur—the Archer—so its glyph resembles an arrow pointed skyward. Almost all of the 12 zodiac signs are depicted by an animal, with the exception of Gemini, Virgo and Libra. The Sagittarius symbol also has a unique meaning.
