The 9th sign is Dhanu (Sagittarius). Parashara describes Dhanu as follows:

     “It rises with its head and is lorded by Guru. It is a Sattvic rashi and is tawny in hue. It has strength in the night and is fiery. A royal rashi, Dhanu is biped in the first half. Its second half is quadruped. It has an even build and bears an arch. It resides in the east, relates to land and is splendid.”

Guru (Jupiter) is the ruler and Dhanu is dual, fiery and male. Guru is the Graha for knowledge and expansion. In a male and fiery sign, these qualities turn ambitious and enterprising.

The dual quality is found in it’s symbol: a creature that is half horse, half archer. Guru is connected to the element of space, and the bow and arrow symbolizes the sign’s affinity with crossing spaces, and reaching out into new territories.

People with a prominent Dhanu are opportunistic and full of life. They are generally optimistic and cheerful, and actively pursuing their interests. They are interested in knowledge that can help them progress, and are good at expressing themselves
