Each of the 12 Signs of the Zodiac represents specific energy patterns, or modes of expression. They act as modifiers of the elements with which they are associated, be it a Planet or a House. Sagittarius is an expansion quest to discover truth and the interconnectedness of all things.
INFLUENCE OF THE PLANET
Those born under Sagittarius and Pisces are the Jupiter type. You tend to be heavily built, have a high forehead with prominent eyes, slanting at the corners. You are quite pompous in your middle age and often not very ambitious, yet you manage to acquire comfortable riches during the course of your active career. Being just, honest, generous, self indulgent, sociable and talkative - these are your other hallmarks.
Each zodiac sign extends across 30 degree of the Zodiac. These can be further subdivided into three decans of 10 degree each. Therefore, though all those born under a particular sign are classified under the same sign, the decans yield further insight into your total personality.
You belong to the First Decan of Sagittarius (November 23 - December 2).
Your ruler is Jupiter. You are honest and frank, with a jovial temperament and good sense of humor. You are also both generous and compassionate. You make a lot of money easily, but spend it just as fast. Your quest for domestic serenity and for romanticism may sometimes be doomed to disappointment.
On one hand, a Sagittarian is a born flirt and on the other hand, a snob - a disastrous combination! As a lover, you are warm, open, charming and glamorous. What you lack is staying power. New faces and fresh pictures always beckon you, so though you may be a good lover, you are not always a faithful one, and one whom it is almost impossible to tie down. This creates problems in your love life. You are very sporty, but an excellent provider. But yours is fundamentally not a sign of domesticity, in the sense of needing a home and hearth above everything else. A divorce or separation may hurt you, but it wouldn't prevent you from another attempt at matrimony. You will care and provide for your mate, but will give him or her freedom and independence and expect the same in return. Sagittarians can sometimes also be quite crude and hot-tempered. While you respect your partner as a human being, you are nevertheless capable of some very wounding sarcasm, which he or she will have to learn to overlook in order to survive with you.
Sex plays an important role in the life of every man and woman. It lies at the root of life, and we can never learn to revere life until we know how to understand sex. Indian astrological science attributes certain sexual characteristics to persons according to the sign under which they have been born.
You are generous in love, as in everything else and you make your partner happy in every way. You are experimental, sporty, cheery and completely direct.
AS A FRIEND
You are sincere, helpful and generous in the extreme - a good friend to have around. Your likes and dislikes are intense, sometimes leading to blinding predilections or prejudices. Your intuition is strong and makes you offer your friends good advice and guidance. Even if friends exploit you, you harbor no resentment or ill-will.
COMPATIBILITY WITH OTHER SIGNS
The following section tells you about your compatibility with other zodiac signs in friendship, business, family or love relationships. The basic foundation will remain unchanged, though mutual aspects between planets will modify the relationship to a certain extent in a positive or a negative way.
Ideal Association (5-9 Sun Sign Pattern): Aries and Leo
Not always, but surprisingly often, the extraordinary magnetism of 5-9 Sun sign attraction leads to easy sympathy, mental stimulation, emotional affinity, romantic fulfillment. There will be a strong sympathy between you and misunderstandings will not be severe or lasting. The chances for harmony are excellent, and a happy relationship on a permanent basis is more effortlessly achieved than with any other sign - be it friendship, business, family or love relationships. Hostile placement of planets between the two horoscopes will cause some personality clashes and tensions - causing the compatibility to rock from time to time - although the basic empathy and understanding will always remain. If the planets are in harmonious aspect, your relationships with these people will be most extraordinarily happy, smooth and sympathetic.
Ideal Association with some Problems (7-7 Sun Sign Pattern): Gemini
Not always, but frequently, you either get physically attracted to or secretly admire and respect each other - in case of opposite sex. The individual possesses the qualities of character and personality traits you yourself lack. The urge to imitate will be strong. However, in case of same sex, you may become strongly competitive and feel uneasy or envious. Mutual aspects between other planets somewhat modify the relationship positively or negatively.
Compassionate Association (2-12 Sun Sign Pattern): Capricorn
In your association with this individual, one of you will feel that he or she has many lessons to learn from the other. The one who has lessons to teach will feel an inexplicable compassion for the weaknesses and mistakes of the other person, strangely understanding the other's markedly different motives and behavior.
Favorable Association (3-11 Sun Sign Pattern): Libra and Aquarius
You will feel a strong tie of friendship, whatever the association you share with these individuals. Mutual trust and ease of communication mark the relationship. In spite of strong differences, you connect closely with each other. A sense of responsibility and some sort of inescapable duty will bring you together. You will constantly stimulate each other into changing habits and existing situations. Any quarrels will usually be quickly resolved, forgiven and forgotten. Even when the association seems to be a closed chapter, it reappears months or years later, to be resumed once more.
Beneficial Association (6-8 Sun Sign Pattern): Taurus and Cancer
There will be some problem in communication. Yet you will be powerfully drawn into each other. Irresistible sexual attraction in case of a love relationship. In case of friendship, business or family ties, attraction through some shared interest. Urge for mutual help. Service given will always be repaid. In some way, a great benefit will come from one to the other through the relationship, and the one who serves will usually remain loyal.
Reflective Association (1-1 Sun Sign Pattern): Sagittarius
You will each be tempted to magnify your own virtues and failings. All the positive character traits will be intensified - as will the negative traits. A constant effort should be made to encourage in one another the positive qualities of the zodiac sign you both share and to discourage the negative ones.
Unfavorable Association (4-10 Sun Sign Pattern): Virgo and Pisces
Not always, but surprisingly often, you will feel a noticeable tension or conflict of personality in the presence of these individuals. One of you may grow restless because of the strict disciplinary attempts of the other. For various reasons, there will always be some mental and emotional restriction.
