The first decan in the house of Sagittarius is Lyra, the Harp or lyre which means "Praise for the Conqueror" and is shown as a harp combined with an eagle or an eagle rising with a harp.
Vega is a very bright star in this constellation. It glitters like a gem and means "He shall be exalted."
God himself named this star so that He should be exalted.

Ara is the second decan and is illustrated as an altar. Ara means "Consuming Fire Prepared for His Enemies." It is seen as an altar or a burning pyre upside down pouring out fire into the lower regions of Tatarus, or outer darkness.
This depicts that God, having conquered Satan, has prepared that place for Satan and his fallen angels- that place of consuming fire. This picture unfolds in PS 21:8&9
8 Your hand will find all Your enemies;
Your right hand will find those who hate You.
9 You shall make them as a fiery oven in the time of Your anger;
The Lord shall swallow them up in His wrath,
And the fire shall devour them.
We are also told in II Thessalonians chapter 1 that Christ shall come with flaming fire taking vengeance on those that believe not and obey not. He shall come with His mighty angels to be glorified, which reminds us to take up the harp and the lyre and to sing the praises of Christ.

The final decan in the house of Sagittarius is Draco the dragon. It is seen as a huge winding serpent fierce, but firmly under the crushing foot of Hercules. In Greek, Drakon means "Trodden Down". Her we see the dragon as the one who is trodden down on.
The brightest star in this figure is called Thuban and is located in the second coil from the serpent's tail. Thuban means "The Subtle".
In the serpent's head is the star Rastaban "The Head of the Serpent". This is the second brightest of this constellation.
The last star is Eltanin "The Long Serpent".
So here we can see the dragon cast down, crushed, trodden on, and overcome by Christ.
Sagittarius is the final chapter in the first of three books in the zodiac. As you will see it along with the other two books will end with the victory of Christ and the destruction of Satan.
Father whether we look into Thy Word or lift our eye unto the glittering heavens, we see the same story of the glory and grace of Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Conquering King. In Thy name Amen!
