Horoscoptically, Toksóte:s (Toξóτηs) = Sagittārius = The Archer (earh,
arrow; Lat arcus 'bow').
Probably, we don't automatically associate archery with poison; it's
probably banned by the Geneva Convention. More than likely, poisoned arrows
were the norm in the past; otherwise it's just poking holes in a target,
not coop-de-grass.
