If your Latin is rusty (or pig), Sagittarum is the genitive plural form of the Latin word sagitta. Sagitta means arrow, so the English translation of sagittarum would be of the arrows or the arrows' (possessive). Sagitta is also the name of a small constellation that can be seen in late summer in the Northern Hemisphere (as well as in the image in the header of this blog).
