Sun in Sagittarius

(The Sun is in Sagittarius from November 23 to December 21, depending on the year).  

Restless, cheerful, and friendly, Sun in Sagittarius people are generally on the go. They have a love of freedom, and a disdain for routine. Generally quite easygoing, Sagittarians make friends with people from all walks of life. They love to laugh and tease, and get along well with both sexes. 

Sagittarians have an often blind faith in people, and in the world. Their optimism is infectious, although it can get them into trouble from time to time. These are curious people who love to learn. Their idealistic nature is hard to miss.

Although generally easygoing, Sagittarius is a fire sign. This gives natives a generally quick temper. Fortunately, they're usually as quick to forget what got them angry in the first place.

The need for escape is generally strong, and some Solar Sagittarians come across as a little irresponsible. They're generally easy to forgive, however. After all, their direct, honest approach in life is admirable.

Sun in Sagittarius: Sagittarius is the last and most impersonal of the Fire signs. The idealism of Sagittarius is less personal than either Aries or Leo. Sagittarians are more involved in causes, politics; in formulating the law; and they have ideas about religion and / or philosophy. They too come from a home that is strongly influenced by the father. But often, Sagittarians are angry at the father. It seems he is quite fond of them when they are little but later forsakes them for some other interest as they grow older. The Sagittarian types are looking for approval and respect from the father, while at the same time they want to be independent from him. For some reason known only to Sagittarians, they think Daddy is a successful person; and like all the Fire signs, they feel that it is impossible to measure up to his greatness.

Most Sagittarians grow up in an atmosphere of enough food and shelter, but they seem to feel left out in the emotional department. They seem to radiate self-confidence and enthusiasm, but inside they often question their personal values. Again, here is the Fire sign dilemma - ideals can be so lofty that the Fire sign person can't possibly live up to them.

Sagittarians pursue ideals and ideas in an independent way. They are interested in all aspects of the concept of freedom. The political quest for freedom often involves the concept of revolution. However, when it comes down to the actual fighting, Sagittarians don't want to be involved - it's cold and uncomfortable on the battlefield, and suddenly philosophy seems to be the direction in which to travel! This type can be the great fireside revolutionary. Sagittarians who become interested in politics often have the same problems Leos have. As they become more involved in the political arena, they find that it's not as idealistic as it seemed at first. They don't care for the political compromises that take place - or graft, or dealings that are less than idealistic.

No idealist likes to be in situations that are not 'fair'. 'The world isn't fair; there ought to be a law', say the Fire signs. After a number of hurts over the years - hurts caused by the unfairness of life - one begins to notice that Mother Nature is not fair either! She does not support 'fairness' in the life structure of the universe. It's the Fire sign people who work to develop a sense of fairness and justice, for the universe does not make moral judgments. Westerners regard certain Eastern practices with abhorrence because they seem so unfair, so inhuman. But our ideals will not allow us to see that life is a constant stream of transformation and change. Life is a force much like that of symbolic water, for it keeps on 'a-keepin' on'. Perhaps some insight can be gained as to why Fire signs don't understand Water signs and vice versa if the difference in the symbols of the two is taken into consideration.

In the area of the Sagittarian's relationships, the father has a great deal of influence. He is a person who loves companionship and camaraderie. He likes typically male things ­sports events, the hunt, the 'man-and-his-dog' stuff in life. The child is influenced by this, and the effect manifests differently in the male and the female as they each mature. And because Sagittarians are so involved with ethics and justice and the theory of what is going on in the universe, they often find personal relationships difficult.

Sun in Sagittarius: Honesty expresses itself in other ways as well: Sagittarians pride themselves on being honest in situations where honesty becomes rather tactless. In the process of being brutally honest, they may shatter someone else's self-image, or cast aspersions on another individual. Then they wonder why people withdraw. It has been said that Sagittarians have foot-in-mouth disease because they say things that hurt or shock other people. You ask 'How does my hair look?' and Sag says 'Gee, it looks nice today, implying that you haven't been looking well lately! This tactlessness doesn't go over big in business either. Sagittarians learn as they grow older that some questions in life don't need to be answered - they learn how to listen. Learning to listen is one of the qualities of a judge ­justice and truth and fairness are qualities that can be used in a positive Jupiterian way. And in order to judge fairly, one must listen to the whole story.

Sun in Sagittarius: The Sagittarian personality usually is good-humored, needs freedom and liberty to roam around, and does not respond well to the imposition of orders from others. Your temperament will be cheerful, optimistic and generous, being a consistent and reliable friend. You prefer to live as free as possible, and may need employment which offers considerable work variety and independence, so that you can organize your own endeavors while ensuring that the job is also completed. You may be attracted towards medicine, law and religion, and have skills to become an effective teacher, but you may need to avoid any authoritarian or patronizing attitudes. You will be quite ambitious and usually quick to take advantage of opportunities; your attitude may be too optimistic at times, becoming overly enthusiastic about plans before you have had time to consider them fully.

You may need a clearer sense of direction and life purpose, which directs you towards suitable work, but once found should enable you to strive one-pointedly to achieve your goals. You can be a conscientious worker, especially to ensure an income which is sufficient to indulge your need to spend on your particular interests. You may prefer earning a living by working for large organizations, feeling financially safe and secure within them, and they also offer potential progress towards positions of responsibility. Although you love freedom, security is also important, allowing relaxation so that you can enjoy your freedom. Wealth and possessions also attract, as you greatly enjoy spending and luxury possessions.

There is an innate sense of fair play and justice; and your manner is open and frank, possibly too direct, blunt and abrupt at times for some; but your comments and observations are usually quite accurate. You tend to make mental intuitive leaps, bypassing rationality and logic steps; but sometimes you are too quick jumping to conclusions about things, and then resist changing your viewpoint - even when it is incorrect. You may have an inventive mind, perhaps quite original in content through verbal or literary expression, and this will often closely reflect your moral values and beliefs. You can be an entertaining talker; and although you may not be too knowledgeable about all themes, your mind has an ability to piece together information fragments so that you sound quite informed.

Home and family evoke sentimental reactions, and you can have an image of self-sacrifice for their benefit, although you want appreciation for your actions. You can express fixed and assertive opinions at home; and while you attempt to create a free, liberal atmosphere, this can lead to some conflicts, especially if your ideals or presentation of personal views tend to become a little extreme. You need mental stimulation and a variety of social company, and this can create a restless pattern of physical and mental activity. Your partner needs to understand your need for freedom, sharing your diverse interests and not attempting to limit or restrain you.

You may not always be fully honest with yourself, especially due to tendencies for emotional self-deception; self-enquiry may reveal two sides to your nature, one bright and amiable, the other broody and insecure. You can be an abstract thinker, idealist not realist, inclined towards stubborn, dogmatic and fixed ideas; in later years your interest can veer to philosophy and religious concerns. You have an 'interest in death', and often have intuitive feelings or prophetic insights which you note but may avoid trying to explain or understand, preferring to ignore them. The alternative approach is to pursue and explore your inner psychology and man's spiritual heritage to gain a deeper understanding.

Sun in Sagittarius: Sun in Sagittarius individuals feel they have the right to be free; to be the intellectual authority; to be acknowledged and appreciated as noble and deserving.

If your attention focuses on wanting others to acknowledge your intellectual superiority continually, your intellect may inadvertently become pompous and self-serving. When this occurs, your communication might become directed only toward proving your moral righteousness. Indulging in the Sagittarian need to be recognized for a broad mental perspective may bring a focus on one area of perception. Then you might demand to be at centre stage, whether you deserve it or not, 'spouting off' ideas in that area. Thus, you may unknowingly alienate others by insisting that they agree with you. As a consequence, the base you could effectively expand on is lost when you refuse to add their factual input into your calculations.

When others do not agree with your conclusions, your vitality diminishes, and you may lose contact with the Sagittarius ideals and sense of humanity. If you need others to acknowledge you as noble and deserving, you may inflate your words of action. This may distract you from putting energy into accomplishing the action itself.

When you focus on inspiring others, you can effectively listen for the areas in which they are asking questions. This enables you to share relevant insights that can be appreciated by the other person. You have the ability to use your intellect to help other people by demonstrating your capacity to see their lives from a broader, more optimistic viewpoint. When you share those beliefs that enhance other people's levels of self-trust, you can effectively expand their faith in themselves. This automatically brings about acknowledgement and appreciation of your intellect.

The awareness of yourself as part of a larger brotherhood can enable you to express your perceptions spontaneously in a loving way. This enhances the situation for everyone and increases your vitality and well-being. Consequently, you experience pride and a sense of responsibility as your reward when you use enthusiasm to recognize the significance of others and to bring out their importance.

Sun in Sagittarius: People who have their Suns in Sagittarius are generally jovial, friendly, fun-loving souls who know how to have a good time and never take life too seriously. Optimistic and future-oriented, you don't let problems or disappointments get you down for long. You quickly put failures behind you and immediately start planning your next great adventure or million-dollar scheme. Never satisfied with just getting by, you want to do things on a grand scale; to make it bit and live life to the fullest.

Your glibness, self-confidence and positive attitude make you the quintessential salesperson, and you could sell running shoes to a cheetah. However, you lack the organization and perseverance to see projects through to completion, and are much better at starting things than completing them. You tend to overestimate yourself, and often promise more than you can deliver. Consequently, you might earn yourself a reputation for being unreliable. You rarely get anyplace or finish anything on time, and are usually over budget. Somehow, though, things work out in the end - Lady Luck seems to smile on you - and despite your irresponsibility and rather cavalier attitude, it's hard to stay mad at you for long.

Your quick wit and ready humor make you a much-loved companion, and you lift the spirits of everyone around you. You tie together the mundane and the cosmic in unexpected ways, and help us laugh at ourselves and the world around us. You have a vivid imagination, and may seek to enhance the monotony of daily life with fantasy. However, you sometimes try to avoid reality through escapism, and may be unwilling to assume responsibilities such as earning a living, paying your bills, committing to a relationship or taking care of your children.

A Sagittarian partner may use the home and the family in the same way that a racing driver uses a pit-stop, calling in for food, fuel, a change of clothes, a new cheque book, and then off again. It also seems to take a Sagittarian quite a while to work out whether he actually wants a relationship or not. When he decides that he does want one, he then has to work out which of the many candidates for his attention will actually claim him. Sagittarians vary quite a bit in their attitudes. Some are relaters who want nothing better than to be in the middle of a happy family unit, while others are really better off alone, travelling lightly across the world, floating backwards and forwards between their parents, friends, assorted loves, sometimes spouses and pets. These free-spirited folks need to be able to take off on a fishing boat for a few days at a time, to spend the evening drinking and gambling with friends, or to crash out on a beach somewhere. My daughter's Sagittarian friends send her cheerful, optimistic, jokey letters and postcards from all over the world. Many of those who do settle down with a partner choose one from some far-off, exotic location where the family background and lifestyle is very different. Many Sagittarians seem to spend their lives on the brink of travelling to their spiritual home, which is located, as far as I can ascertain, somewhere in the middle of Australia!

The more settled types of Sagittarian are easy-going, pleasant and helpful. These subjects may not be strong personalities, but they are very loving and extremely kind. Sagittarians hate to see an injustice, and will try to intervene in family quarrels in order to put things right. However, they can be too ineffectual to do much to change things. These people need a strong and reliable partner who has a lively brain and a mind of his / her own. Sagittarians won't make many demands upon a partner, and will not grumble too much if left at home while the other half travels or pursues a career. So long as there is give and take and trust in the relationship, these subjects can survive most things. Sagittarians can't always deal confidently and efficiently with severe problems, but they do their best to help, and they won't walk away just because the going gets tough. If they love someone, these generous people will give the partner everything they own and they will work hard to make the home a happy and comfortable place in which to live. However, if a Sagittarian finds himself in an increasingly difficult situation, he may be so powerless to change things that his only means of coping with it is to escape. One wonderful story which was told to me by a friend typifies the behavior of this sign. Apparently my friend's mother had not had a pleasant marriage and, therefore, when the time came for the youngest child to start working, she arranged to go abroad and work as a contract nurse. The family came home to find a note on the kitchen table which announced 'Dinner in oven. Gone to Bermuda. Back in three years.'

Sagittarians can be very eccentric. Their values are spiritual rather than material, and they don't stop to worry about what the neighbors might think. I have known more than one Sagittarian who, when asked out to dinner, takes her own food and even her own saucepan and spoon! These people can be very disconcerting to those who are not used to their kind of behavior. They follow a peculiar kind of logic, and try to go through life without putting other people to any kind of trouble. They can be too outspoken for many people's taste because they don't hide their feelings. However, their honest and direct approach ensures that they are never two-faced.

Sagittarius is a Fire sign, which means that these subjects are quite strongly sexed. They are also adventurous and experimental in all areas of life, and this carries over into their sex lives as well. Sagittarians are not afraid of sexual adventures, and they love to try anything new. They hate to think that they may miss out on anything, and they are prevented from feeling foolish or getting hurt by their ability to put everything down to experience. Sagittarians may be unfaithful when young, although this is not done in order to punish or humiliate their partners: it simply reflects the fact that they don't take material or bodily matters very seriously. The thing which counts most for them is friendship along with the experience of love and sex. Later on, some of these footloose people settle down and make quite reasonable partners. By then they will have experimented enough sexually to know what works best for them, and the whole business gets relegated to the background of their lives while they get on with other experiences which they find more interesting.

Even later in life, they can do without sex altogether, taking up something like archaeology, religion or growing rare orchids instead. One thing which is worth pointing out is their sense of amazed loss and their genuine grief when someone else makes use of them and subsequently moves on, leaving them behind.

Sagittarians can take or leave wider relationships. These subjects are friendly and good-natured, and would far prefer to get on well with in-laws, aunties and a new partner's children than live in an atmosphere of rancor. However, if it doesn't work, the Sagittarian doesn't blame himself; he simply writes this off as one of those things and steers clear of awkward relatives. Sagittarians are very broad-minded and absolutely non-racist, so relatives who are mixed in color, race or religion are viewed as a blessing rather than a curse. The only ones they really can't stand are those who are stupid or gratuitously unpleasant.

As children, Sagittarians cause their parents very little trouble. They are out of the house almost as soon as they can walk, visiting friends or relatives, or getting involved with school activities. They escape most of their parents' wrath simply by not being there; and many Sagittarian children have what amounts to a second family somewhere else in the neighborhood. Sagittarius children are not particularly clever or remarkable, but they may do well if they are allowed to look after animals. Quite a number of Sagittarian children show an early talent for entertaining others or for sports. They have very enquiring minds and will want to travel away from home as soon as they can.

As parents, Sagittarian subjects are kind, loving and interesting; they will do all they can to teach their children, and they will not leave questions unanswered. There is a danger that their children may have to take on the role of parents at a rather early stage in life, especially if there are severe difficulties to be coped with. Many Sagittarian parents can't cope with the reality of life with children and, therefore, do best if they can afford to send them off to school as weekly boarders or share the chore of bringing them up with other relatives.

Sun in Sagittarius: Challenge is important in a fulfilling Sagittarian life. When an achievement is accomplished, Sagittarius soon begins work on the next one. The compulsion to set new targets and meet them is so strong that it can become all-engrossing, with present activities being skimped because the eye is always on future plans. Sagittarian enthusiasm, optimism and zest for life are second to none, but must be controlled. The worst fault, restlessness, can be a severe problem, for Sagittarians don't always see projects through to the end.

Natural excitement and enthusiasm can feed the innate Sagittarian tendency to take risks, which can become real foolhardiness, especially when young. Developing their inherent intellectual powers will enable these people to avoid unnecessary risks. They should also cultivate a more philosophical outlook. If their natural exuberance isn't controlled, it will become boisterous. Their enjoyment of life and sense of humor are charming but can sometimes get out of hand - they should remember that practical jokes are rarely funny for their victims.

One of the dual signs of the zodiac, Sagittarius gives versatility, which may contribute to the Sagittarian tendency to move too quickly from one task to another, or to be involved in too many things at once. Greater satisfaction will come from steadily working through one project towards the next, which, after all, they can ensure is as different as possible.

This sign confers breadth of vision and the ability to assimilate quickly what may be a complex situation. However, these people are not usually good at coping with detail, which bores them. In ignoring the minutiae, they can run into difficulties, so they should always read the small print.

No true Sagittarian can cope with claustrophobic conditions (they must have a room with a view, for instance), particularly within personal relationships. A possessive, suspicious or jealous partner will not last long: their independent spirits won't tolerate any restrictions on personal freedom.

Sex is greeted with customary Sagittarian enthusiasm and exuberance; when they are very young, a possible partner's sexual attractions can be irresistible. With experience they will look for other qualities: someone whose intelligence at least matches their own, and with whom they can be friends as well as lovers.

Enthusiasm is a wonderful element in any child, but in young Sagittarians it can be so generous that it needs to be channeled and not frittered away. Similarly, boisterousness may need to be calmed. The parents should discover as early as possible in the child's life where his or her true interests lie. There is tremendous potential here, but it must be properly led (without the child's knowledge). Achievement will feed enthusiasm, whether in class, on the sports field or during out-of-school hours. Sagittarian children find it difficult to obey school rules, but aren't blind to reason; and any sensible restrictions will be accepted. Their reading and language skills should be encouraged from an early age.

As parents, Sagittarians are admirable: they respond in a lively way to their children, encourage their interests, and help them build up good libraries. However, it is vital that a Sagittarian mother doesn't sacrifice her own interests entirely to those of her family but tries to set time aside for herself. No matter how much she loves her children, their limited conversation is not always sufficiently engrossing; restlessness is certain if she has no means of escape. Ideally, new projects should be started as soon after the birth of a child as possible.

In career, once again, challenge is essential; and boring, repetitive work must be avoided if at all possible. Environment is also important: small, stuffy offices or crowded workshops are equally intolerable. Acquiring money is not in itself very important; Sagittarians usually manage to find it when necessary. Hard-earned cash is more likely to be spent on study, books and travel than on impressive material possessions. A spirit of adventure (not always physical) is important; work which takes these people out of their own environment is good for them. Taking short cuts to success can lead them into serious errors, usually because they haven't attended to enough detail.

Sun in Sagittarius and Moon in Taurus: The combination of your Sun and Moon signs produces a rather warm, genial, and romantic individual. You are very idealistic. Almost to the extent that your ideology absorbs practical purposes. You are aspiring rather than ambitious, and you generally look for idealistic rather than realistic satisfactions in life. You never seem to be particularly concerned about everyday matters, such a making a living, working under the assumption that your needs will somehow be provided for, and usually they are. You really have too much faith in people. Most of time people do respond to you as you had hoped and expected they would. When they don’t, however, you really let it get under your skin and bog you down. You have so many dreams and illusions, but you really let it get you down when people are ugly or unkind, and the harsh realities of your environment start to close in on you. You can’t seem to handle criticism or put downs well. Your highly romantic nature is ardent, impulsive, loyal and devoted.

Sun in Sagittarius and Moon in Gemini: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign produces a personality that is by no means shy, timid or backward. You will step to the front when the call for leadership is made. You are a very adventurous person, both physically and mentally, never satisfied to stand still in either sense. Because you are naturally lucky in a financial way, you are never really very concerned about security. You know how to sell yourself and achieve a good deal of popular prestige. You are apt to see a lot of life before you eventually decide to settle down. Variety, travel, changes, mental stimulation, and a wide range of personalities around you are all needed to busy your extremely restless nature. Stability is your challenge; staying with a project, a cause, or even a person sometimes, can be a really hard task for you. Concentrating your efforts in one focused direction can be your weakness. Nonetheless, your broad range of interests and your enthusiasm will allow you to continue to be effective in working on a lot of things and making continuous progress on all of them. Pettiness is something you have difficulty understanding and of which are never guilty. Everything you do is above board and rendered in a grand fashion. You rarely exercise caution or care, never one to shy away from taking a risk, so long as there is a reasonable change things will work out. You want to get to the top and you very well may, guided by a mixture of idealism, faith in yourself, and cool, practical good sense. Yours is a high spirit and a good grasp of reality.

Sun in Sagittarius and Moon in Cancer: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign yields a personality that is idealistic and very much the romanticist. You are a dreamer and a visionary. This versatile and sensitive combination blends the sincerity, optimism, enthusiasm and expressiveness of Sagittarius with the emotional depth, feeling and intuitive insight of Cancer. A desire to learn, with practical ability, suggests a flexible, versatile or adaptable expression of talent. An intuitive foresight guides you and may keep you out of trouble in everyday affairs. An emotional awareness enables you to understand people, and know what it is they want. In business, you can actually sense the public trend or interests. An optimistic and enthusiastic nature vitalizes your feelings and emotions, and stimulates your actions. Because of your emotional nature you are prone to extremes. Control your excitement and enthusiasm. Don’t let emotions distort reason as they are apt to do. You can be somewhat impulsive in expression of your feelings or sympathies, and consequently, your choice of friends is sometimes based on how you feel rather what you know about an individual. You do better when you are more careful and chose friends from those who have proved to be reliable, honest and intelligent. Because of the nature of your Sun and Moon polarity, it is likely that emotional extremes or a tendency toward sensationalism can be a problem for you. You may often attempt to reach too high or strive for too much recognition. You succeed most easily when you combine your intuitive skills and develop a habit of steady concentration.

Sun in Sagittarius and Moon in Leo: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign produces a very warm-hearted, honest, and open personality. The pairing blends the personal dash, optimism, enthusiasm and directness of Sagittarius, with the warmth, generosity, pride, and authoritativeness of Leo. You have a love of mankind and a code that combines good judgment with a very tolerant attitude. This combination is very dedicated; dedicated to honor, prestige, and achieving stature in the world. And to attain you goals, you are not one to take shortcuts; not one to lie, to cheat, or to do anything underhanded in order to gain an advantage. Honor is all important and your word is an unbreakable bond. The fiery combination of these two signs doesn’t need any unfair advantages to succeed because there is more than enough energy and enthusiasm to get where you want to be. You’ll keep pursuing your goals long after others have thrown in the towel. When you go after something, you go after it tooth and nail. Any obstacle you face is considered only a temporary problem and little gets you down for long. This is a very positive combination, quite indicative of happiness and success. If you can avoid scattering your energies, you can move mountains. You are naturally inclined toward public service, either in law, education, or government. The prestige of the position being more important than the salary. This is a high-minded combination, full of ideas and ideals. You may have problems dealing with the small people of the world that refuse to grow and progress. You are intellectually philosophic, broad-minded, and highly creative. Your creativity is in the ability to form an image in your mind and then bring to reality that clear picture you envisioned. You take life seriously, with a keen sense of the importance of making the most of it. Unless something is really messed up in your chart, you are truly a super person.

Sun in Sagittarius and Moon in Virgo: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign produces a good deal of intellectual power, and with it, the ability to bring generalizations down to details and specific plans. This position blends the personal dash, optimism, enthusiasm and directness of manner of Sagittarius, with the intelligence, analytical insight and discrimination of Virgo. Consequently, this combination produces a lot of achievers and outstanding people. You have an excellent mind, capable of handling broad concepts and minute details with equal ability. Your well-developed mental powers permit you to move from broad concepts down to technical details assuring versatility and adaptability in business or in a profession. Realism tinged with a critical analysis, romanticism without being too impractical, these are your gifts. You see clearly without the help of rose-colored glasses, and you relate what you see and know with honesty and and a well-defined authority. No one has to guess where you stand on any issue. Thinkers that dwell on issues that are philosophically practical are always in demand. You can be pushy, but not to the extent that you offend. Rather, your manner can be described as diplomatic and charming, but still there is the authority of a director or tutor. It’s sometimes necessary to guard against a tendency to be somewhat impulsive. You are at your best when you don’t rush things or allow yourself to be pressured.

Sun in Sagittarius and Moon in Libra: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign produces a purveyor of harmony and peace. Blended are the personal dash, optimism, enthusiasm and directness of manner of Sagittarius, and the tact, personal charm and friendliness of Libra. Both signs are independent, but in neither is the tendency toward perseverance very strong. Shortcomings in this regard are well compensated by the fact that you have a great deal of confidence in yourself and which you can effectively reflect in your dealings with others, and a very good understanding of people in general. Good will, a cheerful nature, and a sincere concern for friends and family are at the core of this combination. You excel at avoiding an argument, and when one does break out you take on the role of the mediator. You may even sacrifice winning your point to maintain the peace. You aren’t so open-minded that your brains fall out, but you are one of the most tolerant people you know. Much more intellectual than emotional, little seems to get under your skin and you slip through life pretty much a free spirit. While you have a strong sense of pride and won’t tolerate anything that degrades or people that try to make you feel inferior, you are not overly ambitious. Regardless of what you achieve in life, you will probably feel content. This is not to say that you stand still. In fact, you are probably in perpetual motion, but the motion is not headed in any special direction most of the time. Success can come in business simply because you have such sound reasoning abilities, accurate perceptions, strong powers of comparison and balanced judgment. You know how to eliminate extremes and excesses. Social life and friends are extremely important to you, both in a personal sense and because success and advancement are tied up somewhat with friends and contacts. The impression you can make is your most important asset.

Sun in Sagittarius and Moon in Scorpio: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign produces much self-reliance, and a life that develops very rapidly in the early years. You know what you want and you know how to achieve your ends; a true go-getter. Blended are the well-developed capacity for judgment and wisdom innate in Sagittarius, and the Scorpio’s knack for throwing everything into a project and fighting until the battle is won. Thus, it is easy to see why you can accomplish so much when you set your mind to it. Optimism and determination; a truly hard combination to defeat. Your nature is subtle and clever, as well, making you good at strategy in handling affairs in business or in the professions. The challenge of this position is handling people with tact and diplomacy, controlling temperament, and avoiding too direct or too blunt of an approach. You have to avoid conflict to really succeed. Your mind is quick and the ability to think on your feet is really superb, but all of this quickness is wasted if you are too impetuous. You have a lot of emotional energy, which when under the control and direction of your will and your mind, gives the force to achieve very high objectives in life. Actually, there is a good bit of sensitivity in your nature, and much of your aggressiveness is a defense that instinctively attacks. Your attacks are aimed right at the most vulnerable spot in what you say or do. You need to concentrate on listening to the opinions of others, and control your emotional reactions, allowing them to work for you.

Mentally and physically you are a hair-trigger and rapid-fire type. You’re quick to play your hunches, and these impulses are generally fairly sound. Your nervous energy is so high you require frequent periods of rest and relaxation to avoid mental fatigue. You accept a lot of responsibility because you don’t like to see things half done or poorly managed. You think in large terms, and people with pessimistic attitude turn you off. You can even get down on yourself if you don’t feel you’re living up to your potential. You see things in abstract ideals and you live by your stern judgments, expecting others to likewise conform to your standards. You are not necessarily devoid of emotions, but you’re a little short on human sensitivities. You have a dramatic way of stating your views, sometimes bordering on a sort of pomp and circumstance. As serious as you are, your actions are often more reactions, based on a solid core of common sense and your idealistic views. There is much indication of leadership in this placement, and when others don’t adhere to your lead, you are very quick to express your righteous indignation. There seems to be an impersonal detachment to your nature that relates on principle and ideals rather than specific situations and individual problems.

Sun in Sagittarius and Moon in Pisces: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign produces a nature with much scope and depth. Your love of mankind is genuine and deep-rooted, and you are always looking for a cause to which you can devote your time and effort. You respond to people in such an understanding and broad-minded way. Tolerance is so pronounced in your nature that it can sometimes be to your detriment; you can actually be understanding when you should be putting your foot down. Most of the time, however, you have such great powers of insight and of recognizing the truth. You live in a world of ideals and are not greatly interested in things on the material plane. You are not one to blow your own horn, in fact, it would almost seem you possess a true sense of humility of spirit. Emotionally, you are impressionable and romantic, and you can be imposed upon by individuals who play on your general sympathetic approach. You are forgiving, incapable of holding a grudge, and utterly free of meanness, spite, jealousy, or vengefulness. Perhaps you aren’t practical minded, but you do know your own worth and you can succeed in your own way at whatever you do. Success may depend upon overcoming restlessness and perhaps a tendency to worry too much. You underestimate your own abilities, to keep in the background of affairs or lack somewhat in self-confidence. You dislike petty details and boring routine, but at the same time you can gain most in developing concentration and in focusing your energies on definite objectives.

Sun in Sagittarius Woman: The Sagittarius lady is an idealist; honesty and frankness are key words. She is loyal; her love is a very real thing and she doesn't want to make light of it. This is a noble lady; when she makes up her mind to do something, it gets done, despite often overwhelming odds. Her decisions are swift; sometimes impulsive actions cause her difficulty. If you want this lady, you must stress integrity. Respect comes first - then love grows, at least as far as she is concerned.

She must always have a goal in front of her; it could be an overseas journey, a book she is going to write or read, or any ambition; but the future must be there before her: she is not one to live on past memories or scrapbooks.

This woman is proud, refined; she is sensitive, often disturbed by comparatively minor matters. Don't attempt to pressure her: it is best to let her decide, to make up her own mind, to take the initiative. She is fiery in temperament; her outlook is universal, philosophical. At times she does go to extremes. But if you are able to win this lady, you will have attained a great deal. Her assets far outweigh her faults.

A Sagittarian woman is exciting, yet gives the impression of being shy. She presents a challenge. You want to know her, to have her express her true feelings. In other words, this woman is difficult to resist! One important hint is this: be honest - state your business, your intentions - don't attempt cover-ups, false promises, statements. Another hint is that this lady appreciates the outdoors and sports, and is drawn to men who are kind to animals.

She will bring out the best in you and will try to earn your respect. The Sagittarius woman is something special. Study these hints and apply yourself. She's worth the trouble!

Sun in Sagittarius Woman: The Sagittarian female comes into the universe with a strong dose of father influence. The influence of the masculine principle interferes with the development of her concept of her feminine self. Her mother's influence is very weak; and like her Aries and Leo sisters, the Sagittarian feels sympathy for her Mom.

She wants to be known for her mind; for her ability to be rational, to comprehend information in the same logical manner that a man is purported to. She is, however, a female; and lurking behind her sports events, her politics, and her career responsibilities, is that nagging fear that she may not be as feminine as she could be - or that men don't appreciate her femaleness. Her conscious mind doesn't think that she's worried, but her unconscious mind knows that she is biologically female. So an interesting battle takes place within her. She presents herself as an intellectual, with the body language of a sexpot.

The men she talks with don't really understand what is expected of them, and she sometimes causes unpleasant and unwanted sexual advances to be made upon her. She doesn't want to be known as a sexual type; she really wants a relationship built on intellectual sharing. She wants companionship as Daddy had, and as she once had with her Dad. As long as she rejects her femaleness - the biological energy present in her life structure - she is the victim of animus projection. In relationships she will always be a bit disappointed because no man can live up to her projection of the knight in shining armor. Because of her sexual projection, and the reaction of men to it, she can develop a dislike for men because she thinks that all they want from a woman is sex. But the situation can be cured when she understands her own needs. The masculine principle is strong in her, and can be used profitably for career development. The feminine body can easily be incorporated with the masculine principle, for we are all a combination of both. Investigations into what a 'woman' is, or what a woman can be, can be very helpful to her. We are all a combination of energies, and when this is understood we can then proceed through life without resentment of our biological gender, and interact with people with interest rather than defensiveness.

Sun in Sagittarius Woman: That old song "Don't Fence Me In" applies to you. You need room and lots of it. Expansion is your primary mode. You like to enjoy life, keep interested, and do what comes naturally. You like the out-of-doors and all that's in it. When you are out there, you feel at home with the limitless horizon and the eternal stars. The universe is a big place and you want to know all of it, or at least as much as possible. Your freedom is very important to you, so you respect the freedom needs of others. You feel that life is like a wonderful yellow brick road, taking us always to new and exciting adventures- and if some of them are scary, well, you learn that way too!

People always say that you are too independent for your own good. You wonder how anyone can ever be too independent. You make up your own mind, thank you very much, and you are absolutely straight about what you think, even if no one asks. You are blunt, it's true, but you mean no harm. You just speak the truth as you see it, and if you're wrong, you didn't mean anything personal. Friends know that you are very concerned with moral and ethical issues, matters of justice and fair play. You're a truth seeker. When you find your own right path, you stick to it. Your problem is that, because you can see the big picture, you often don't get down to the nitty-gritty, and that makes it hard for you to settle on any one thing.

Your ideal man is as freedom loving as you are, but more grounded. You don't mind if he does the laundry and cooks so long as he doesn't get in your way when you need to move. Basically, you're not particularly monogamous, but you're searching for the man who will make you feel he's THE ONE. You know there's a one out there- somewhere. And you guess you'll just keep riding until you find him. Then you'll ride off into the sunset together- like in the movies- and you'll share your big dreams with him because - at last - you can believe in someone.

Sun in Sagittarius Man: The Sagittarian male has a slightly different influence coming from the father image. He wants to be as successful as his father, but doesn't believe that he can ever be the man Daddy is, or the companion Daddy is. He has lofty ideals that he brings into his career ­ but Daddy was a casual man who didn't hurry or rush or take responsibility too seriously. Life just seemed to 'happen' to his father.

The Sagittarian child doesn't know how to follow through on activities, and doesn't think that one should work too hard since Daddy didn't. What he doesn't understand is that his father may have worked very hard to establish himself, but the Sagittarian kid didn't witness that period. So he doesn't work as hard as he can, and his lofty ideals and revolutionary ideas may never see fruition. He may wind up being supported by his wife, for life circumstances bring him into situations that cause those results.

As far as his concept of his maleness is concerned, he's learned the companionship attitudes that his father had, and he's coupled them with idealism. Fire sign men have such lofty ideals about love that it sometimes becomes difficult for them to have a love relationship on the physical plane since so much guilt is attached to the earthy aspects of sex. The Sagittarian male may be a bit shamefaced about his needs for sex and may, therefore, approach women with such tactlessness that he unconsciously makes sure he never 'scores'. He may love one woman and have sex with another. He may trade in a good emotional sexual relationship for good basic companionship. He may choose to relate to the fellows in the locker room, following all the sports events faithfully, rather than building a strong relationship with a female.

He comes from a father-dominated atmosphere - and this means Dads are important and Moms are not. So he may limit his relationships with women, feeling that they are cooks and domestics, and not companions. If most of his relationships are with men and he feels love in these friendships, he may wonder if he is really a 'man' because he knows that he's uncomfortable with the opposite sex.

Both Sagittarians will learn about honesty in their lifetime. They pride themselves on being idealists and on being honest as Daddy is. But often they are not honest with themselves. The female wants to be a masculine companion and avoid her feminine self. The male wants to be a companion to his mate but wonders about his masculine self. Both need to allow themselves to be emotional as well as intellectual. Learning how to give love is an important step for them.

Sun in Sagittarius Man: If you are the kind of lady who wants only to stay indoors, then you had better forget the Sagittarius man. He is open in his nature and he likes to be out in the open. He wants to share things with you: his likes and dislikes, his hobbies, interests, hopes, aspirations. This is a man who will make you know you are a woman. And he'll make you live up to it!

This man dislikes petty persons; he will help you to grow and will expect you to be a big person. If you do not succeed, his initial attraction may turn to revulsion. The best hint is to follow your true feelings, even your intuition. By being honest, even impulsive, you can win this man's sympathy and understanding.

Basically, this man is trustworthy. he may not always do things in the way you expected, but he gets them done. He keeps his promises. You can feel secure with him. During a time of emergency, he acts. He thinks quickly; he is fiery in temperament and has a knack for seeing the situation as a whole. Often, he does not take the time to explain his actions. These are the times when you must have faith in his judgment. It would be a mistake, for example, to nag, to question, to doubt, to undermine his motives.

Sagittarius men do not pull their punches; you can trap them but, if so, they will withdraw to such an extent that you will be left more alone than if you actually were alone. Sagittarius men want to learn: by reading, experimenting, questioning, travelling, writing, examining, probing. If the kind of life you want is a 'sit still and be quiet' kind, then the Sagittarius man could only make you unhappy, and vice versa.

You catch him with color, charm, wit; you intrigue him by asking fantastic questions. You make him lose interest by being too conventional in your outlook, ambitions, aspirations.

This man wants companionship; he wants to share his experiences, adventures. By all means, stick to your views, your individuality. He may appear to be a rebel - but the one quality he admires in a woman, above all else, is independence.

Sun in Sagittarius Man: You're an idea man and you like to keep on the move. You need your space, for you're always involved in a dozen different projects, mostly connected with your ideals. You like action and adventure, especially out-of-doors, and though life may trip you up or you may fall over your own feet, you're a "cockeyed optimist." If you can't travel physically, you do it in your mind, experiencing possibilities and learning as much as you can. You don't like downers and negativity, for you're a positive person and you believe we can better our world. You like to study different cultures and peoples. This helps you to understand and expand your mental horizons.

You're known for "foot-in-mouth" disease, for you don't hesitate to speak your mind, right or wrong. Everyone will always know where they stand with you. You're the man who will tell if someone has bad breath or is putting on a few pounds too many. Hey, you don't mind. That's just more of you to love! There's nothing personal in your comments and you don't have any hidden agendas. You get right to the point, but you can also laugh at yourself and the human condition. Laughter is the best medicine and fun is a necessity, not a luxury in your book.

High risk situations get your adrenaline going. Though you may seem like a good-time Charlie, ethics are important to you. You seek the right path for yourself and when you find it, you're true to it. You have a great zeal for what you believe in, including true love.

You're not naturally monogamous because you always feel the best is yet to come. Your ideal woman is an interesting and high-spirited soul with a sense of adventure, someone you can talk to. When you finally find her, you can stop roaming. You'll stay up all night discussing important matters, buddies seeking the truth by looking for the grand view... and having fun while doing it!
