Dr. Shanker Adawal
He is not only intelligent but intellectual. His mind interests itself in deeper profundities than does that of the Gemini person. His tendency to constant movement urges him to take many journeys. He, like the arrow, must be free to find a mark. He wants to go far to explore, both physically and mentally. He loves all sport and games, and especially if in the greater freedom of the out-of-doors. In the earlier days of astrology, he was always connected with the horse. The Archer is often depicted as having the body of a horse. Undoubtedly he is often the “horse man” type or the man who loves to ride freely across wide spaces of country.
In love he is difficult to understand. The Fire side of him is ardent and enthusiastic, but he is Mutable, and can change, and above all he wants to be free. He often puts off marriage till a late date. A wise partner will let him have “plenty of rein.”
Overstress or misuse of these traits will mean an over-jovial, over-expansive type who becomes boisterous, slangy, sporty, and whose insistence on freedom means that he must be a law unto himself. The hell-for-leather type becomes too careless, too extravagant, and too extreme. Joking can become “horse-play.”
Inhibition of his natural traits will be caused by Subjection to a life too sedentary or too narrow in activity and outlook. He will react by fits of temper or sulkiness.
As a child the Sagittarian will be alert, clever, good at games, lucky in most ways. Like a young colt, he must be taught to be controlled or he will get out of hand. Like all the Fire signs, he should be given the means of letting off his spirits and exuberance especially in out-of-doors activities.
Usually tall, athletic looking. The Jupiter ruler-ship shows in a dignity of carriage, though the behaviour is often casual. There is often a high, dome-shaped forehead. The less developed and the young frequently adopt a free carelessness of dress. The tie flies out, the collar is soft and the corners are untidy. A lock of hair will drop over the face and be continuously flung back. With training, the true dignity of Jupiter arrives in middle age. The nervousness can result in restless manner and much talkativeness.
Nervous and respiratory complaints. Accidents. Psychological upsets. Mental overstrain. Liver troubles.
Way of living
The Sagittarian is at his best in any sphere where his natural urges can be expressed. He is therefore better when both body and mind have equal freedom for development. The natural fields for his mind are the profundities of the law, religion and philosophy. He is sufficiently versatile to study more than one of these, without neglecting the constant exercise without which he cannot feel healthy. If under-exercised, his liver suffers. Like Gemini, he is apt to have too many interests and to be very enthusiastic over each in turn.
Like his usual occupation, these should be both mental and physical. Games, spo0rt, walking, hiking, riding should be combined with going to lectures on the topic of interest, of the time and with study of a serious nature. Any form of travel is a relief and a pleasure.
