What's Your Sign: Sagittarius

(Previously, Scorpio)

The constellation Sagittarius represents Chiron, an archer and a centaur. Hercules, in pursuit of other centaurs, accidentally hit Chiron with an arrow. Chiron was in immense pain from the poison of the arrow, but he was immortal and could not die. One version of the story is that Zeus put Chiron in the stars to put him out of his misery.

Herc had a bad habit of stabbing, shooting and crushing his erstwhile allies. I don't think I would have hung with him very often.
