Sagittarius Key Planet: Jupiter
The key planet of a Sagittarius is Jupiter, the 5th planet from the Sun, which happens to be the biggest planet in the solar system. It symbolises heroic action. Jupiter is the king of everything that is huge, better and voluminous. However, sometimes too much can be too bad, and it can have an adverse effect. It can encourage the Sagittarius natives to blow up their money on unnecessary things. You can rectify this flaw by availing the personalised Natal Chart based service Wealth Ask a Question.

As their key planet, Jupiter encourages them to live life as it comes, flow with the tide, and to have faith in something which is greater than themselves.
