Sagittarius About Your Sign...
Sagittarians have a positive outlook on life, are full of enterprise, energy, versatility,
adventurousness and eagerness to extend experience beyond the physically familiar.
They enjoy travelling and exploration, the more so because their minds are constantly
open to new dimensions of thought. They are basically ambitious and optimistic,
and continue to be so even when their hopes are dashed. Their strongly idealistic
natures can also suffer many disappointments without being affected. They are honorable,
honest, trustworthy, truthful, generous and sincere, with a passion for justice.
They are usually on the side of the underdog in society they will fight for any
cause they believe to be just, and are prepared to be rebellious. They balance loyalty
Sagittarians are usually modest and are often religious, with a strong sense of
morality, though they tend to overemphasize the ethical codes they follow and worship
beliefs about God rather than God Himself. This means that, negatively, they regard
rigid, unloving, intolerant adherence to ritual and conventional codes as more important
than the truths they symbolize or embody. They sometimes pay lip service to religions
and political parties in which they have ceased to believe because the outward forms
satisfy them, yet they may not hesitate to switch allegiance in politics or change
their system of belief if they see personal advantage to themselves in doing so.
They have both profound and widely ranging minds, equipped with foresight and good
judgement, and they can be witty conversationalists. They love to initiate new projects
(they make excellent researchers) and have an urge to understand conceptions that
are new to them. they think rapidly, are intuitive and often original, but are better
at adapting than inventing and are at their best when working with colleagues of
other types of character that compliment their own. They are strong-willed and good
at organizing, a combination that gives them the ability to bring any project they
undertake to a successful conclusion. Their generosity can be balanced by their
extreme care at handling their resources.
Sagittarians are ardent, sincere and straightforward in love, normally conventional
and in control of their sexual natures. Yet if thwarted, they may easily allow their
failure to embitter their whole lives or they may revenge themselves upon the opposite
sex by becoming cynically promiscuous. They are more apt then the average to make
an uncongenial alliance. If their marriages are successful, they will be faithful
spouses and indulgent parents; but their innate restlessness will inspire them to
use even the most satisfying ménage as a base from which to set out on their travels.
They need to fell free and are often faced with the choice of allowing their careers
to take over their lives at the expense of the love of their spouse and family.
Sagittarian women are the counterparts of their men; even if they have no career
to rival their love, they find it difficult to express affection and may run the
risk of being thought frigid.
In other personal relationships they are reliable, seldom betraying any trust given
to them. They can, however, be impulsively angry and both male and female Sagittarians
know how to be outspoken and exactly what expressions will hurt their adversaries
most. On the other hand they are magnanimous in forgiving offenses and are responsible
when looking after the elderly in the family.
Their gifts fit Sagittarians for a number of widely differing professions. They
are natural teachers and philosophers with a talent for expounding the moral principles
and laws which seem to explain the universe. This gift enables them to be successful
churchmen on the one hand and scientists on the other. The law and politics also
suit them, as does public service, social administration, public relations and advertising.
Travel and exploration naturally appeal to such restless souls and, if their opportunities
are limited, they may find something of travel and change of scene in the armed
forces or through working as a travelling salesman. Others may make fine musicians
and, in the days before automobiles, they were said to be successful at horse trading
and all activities, including sporting ones, concerning horses. This has been translated
in modern terms into an interest in cars and aircraft - and again with emphasis
on the sporting side racing, rallying etc. They are said to make good sports coaches,
but their tastes in this direction may lead them into imprudent gambling, though
the gambling instinct may be sublimated by carrying it out professionally as a bookmaker.
The vices to which Sagittarians are prone are anger they tend to flare up over trifles;
impatience - they want to rush every new project through immediately and demand
too much of colleagues who cannot work at the pace they require; and scorn of the
inadequacies of others while expecting fulsome recognition of their own efforts.
They may in one sense deserve recognition, because in completing a major project
they will sacrifice their health and family relationships; in their family's eyes
they may merit condemnation.
They can be exacting, domineering and inconsiderate in the work place; and boastful,
vulgar and extravagant in their private lives. Their restlessness, if excessive,
can jeopardize more than their own stability. some Sagittarians risk becoming playboys,
wasting their lives away in frivolous pursuits. Others can develop a moralizing,
religious fanaticism or else turn into hypocrites, their inner prudishness disguised
by an outward appearance of joviality. Another side of the religiosity which is
a danger in Sagittarians is superstition.

danger to the modern Sagittarian, and he is also liable to accidents with fire and
