At the exact minute of your birth, the astrological sign that is rising on the eastern horizon is designated the Ascendant or Rising Sign. The Ascendant is how you dawn on the world, how you present yourself to others. If someone were to guess your astrological sun sign, they would guess it based on what you show the world, which is your rising sign. Its the characteristics and personality traits that you put forth for all to see. Its the stained glass window that you project outward for the rest of your chart to flow through.
Those with Aries on the rising are typically driven, ground-breaking, impulsive, quarrelsome, self-centred, short-tempered, dominant, wilful, self-sufficient, watchful, good with your hands, and boastful, with a large amount of physical energy that must be expelled somehow. Your impulsiveness may lead to seemingly careless behaviour even if you have good intentions. Strongly independent, you rebel against anyone telling you what you should do. It would be beneficial for you to develop a more diplomatic way of communicating in addition to a bit of caution, as you may jump before thinking ahead and get yourself into sticky situations. Try to release your energy in a more positive way. Unfortunately, often when you are presented with a problem, you use force to try to mould it into the desired result, thinking that will-power alone will fix things. You must learn that brute force will not gain you the results you are hoping for, instead you will limit yourself, making matters worse and bulldozing over peoples feelings. You enjoy competitions of all sorts and can be a bit aggressive at times. Doing the same thing day in and day out bores you to bits but you must find a way to persevere in these circumstances as they are a necessary part of life. There is a tendency to dive into one thing only to leave it unfinished and start something fresh; complete the things you have begun rather than letting novelty temp you away from the hard work you have already put in. Your lesson may be to develop a more patient outlook. Aries is ruled by Mars and therefore its placement in your chart will be significant.
If the planets symbolize the forces and energies that happen in different situations, then the aspects between the planets symbolize how these energies work together and integrate with each other. There are challenging and easy aspects between the planets and it is up to the individual to choose how they are going to utilize the aspect energies for a positive outcome. The aspects between planets are said to speak to each other. Depending on which planets are aspecting each other and the rest of the natal chart, will determine which planet is dominate and which is not in the aspect between them. But ultimately it is up to the individual to decide how they are going to use the aspects of planets in their chart with their free will, in a meaningful and productive way.
You are more interested in your needs and well-being than you are with that of other peoples. You readily compete with others and are considered a fighter in spirit. Developing some diplomacy would do you well; learn to work as a team. You can be confrontational and aggressive, starting arguments over the littlest of matters. Easily giving into your urges, you have difficulty with self-restraint. Many times you believe that in order to get what you desire you need to win a battle of sorts. You are always looking out for your own best interest and pushing yourself to the top of the line which can create hostility in others. You insist that you are correct even when you are not, do not foster forgiveness towards others, and have trouble apologising. Energetic and driven, be mindful not to release this in destructive ways by squandering it via meaningless endeavours or being at the whim of your sensual desires. You can be rash, careless, and lacking in patience; try to think things through before rushing full force into things. You dislike being held back in any way and will not abide by others trying to control you in any fashion which causes trouble with authority figures, affecting your advancement in your career. You are highly accident-prone and temperamental, volatile even. Pay attention to how much energy you are exerting as you typically go go go until you drop; find a way to release your energy steadily. Extreme internal tensions and an inability to handle them can cause you to erupt when things do not go as you wanted, especially at those you feel most comfortable with. You can be spontaneous though careless, leading you into trouble, especially financially.
The only thing limiting you from achieving great heights is yourself. Find a way to direct that amazing energy of yours in a beneficial way and success is yours! Though of course the path to glory will insist that you develop discipline, patience, diligence, perseverance, and a strong will. It may be necessary for you to come to terms with your spiritual needs versus what you think you need, as this is causing inner conflict for you. Let go of the lower, earthly ways of thinking and be open to wisdom and spiritual growth. You may find that these tensions cease to exist, allowing you to go forward in a more positive manner. You are brave and confident, now all you need is a bit of self-discipline to pull it all together.
Mentally you are systematic, methodical, focused, resourceful, and able to dive into the deepest of waters. You may not come to your conclusions quickly, but they are fully thought out once you do finally get to them. You prefer to study on your own where you can fully concentrate and go at your own pace. You definitely have your viewpoints, though you are unlikely to share them with others until you have turned every stone and thought through every angle of a situation. Naturally sceptical and careful, you are also prone to negative thinking and can become depressed more easily than others. Generally, you try to conserve your efforts as best you can. You are not usually open to new ideas unless they have been proven through methodical means and therefore tend to disbelieve most of the concepts you come across. You would do well in careers that require sorting through and gathering data in a systematic manner, as you possess excellent organisational skills. In social situations you tend to keep to yourself and are quiet, observant, and stern faced, preferring to stay out of the meaningless chit-chat that most would engage in. For you, if it does not produce something you can use or hold on to, it is not worth investing yourself in. Your communication style is confident and respectable. You are naturally organised and would do well in managerial positions. You keep your feet on the ground and know what you want, however showing your emotions does not come easily to you. Make sure you keep an eye on your teeth as they are susceptible to enamel issues.
There is a chance that you may develop cruel behaviour patterns. You will often worry about things that are unlikely to come to pass or things in which you have no control over. Rather than worrying over these things, you should concentrate on making plans. You do not trust whatever you are unfamiliar with or havent had a chance to fully think through in a slow, reasonable manner. Try to be more open-minded to what others are saying so as to counter your naturally pessimistic attitude. Conveying your thoughts is challenging for you and people are often confused by what you are expressing, though you are just as perplexed by their communication. Your approach to things tends to be very traditional and you prefer sticking to the tried-and-true instead of venturing out into something different and unexplored. However, it would be beneficial for you to give fresh ideas a chance every once in a while. At times you can convince yourself that your less-than-wholesome methods are correct because you believe so strongly in something that you are blind to the process and only see the end result. You can be a bit of an extremist when engrossed in your projects; every detail must be perfect. Cut yourself, and others, some slack sometimes as not every tiny fragment of each endeavour needs to be fussed over. You are susceptible to problems with your nerves due to your tendency to work yourself too hard. Do your best to limit stressors and take time to relax.
You may express yourself in an eloquent and clever manner, but you tend to keep to shallow waters, never venturing into the deeper emotions that some may be fond of. You are also not likely to stick with anything for very long, have trouble remembering things, and do not have a stable pattern of thought. You are indecisive, anxious, and prone to overthinking. Your high-strung nature can rub people the wrong way at times. You enjoy talking about people when they are not around and can spin a story to better suit your needs at the moment. You are interested in where others have been, how they feel, what they think, and why. You listen to them and people naturally divulge their private thoughts to you when they may not be so open with someone else. Previous experiences are particularly fascinating to you. Historical events in both your life and the lives of others are important to you and you readily share and listen to these tales. Archaeological or genealogical topics draw you in, as well as anything pertaining to myths. You feel almost as though you are reliving these experiences yourself.
You must find equilibrium between your mental state and your emotional state as you tend to swing wildly from one to the other. Your thinking is sharp but unfortunately so is your tongue, and this creates hurt where there did not need to be any. Try to think before you speak and form your words in a more diplomatic fashion. Use both your logical thinking with your sensitive emotions. Your nervousness and inner tension can create frustration for you internally that you often take out on others. You crave genuine care and understanding.
You are generally positive and full of hope. Acquiring knowledge throughout your life is very valuable to you. You have a good head on your shoulders and are skilled at long-term thinking and strategy. Travelling is particularly beneficial for you as it will open your mind and teach you how to understand yourself, others, and the world more thoroughly. Usually prone to seeing things on a grand scale, you may tend to overlook details, preferring to pass those tasks onto others who are more interested in them. You are likely to be good at public speaking and people tend to believe in and support you as they intuitively feel that you are an honourable person who will do them no harm. Genuine and ethical, you would never purposefully betray or mislead others. However, you are prone to embellish or amplify your tales slightly in order to make a good impression on others. You are full of good humour and find social interactions with others easy and enjoyable. Philosophical or religious theories are likely to be on your mind throughout your life. You have no trouble swiftly learning whatever you are interested in. You have an amazing way of viewing every aspect of a situation without bias and finding a solution that suits all parties involved. Very accepting of others quirks and shortcomings, you are never vengeful or resentful as you believe life is better lived without harbouring negative emotions. You readily take part in debates because they allow you an opportunity to express your opinions and learn new perspectives. You would do well in a field that either entails public speaking or is related to finding justice in some way. Business and selling to the public can also be good avenues for you to explore in your career. This placement bestows luck upon your undertakings and you are likely to be successful due to your optimism and ability to endure through whatever difficulties come your way; your never-ending hope keeps you afloat.
You are faithful and dedicated in your relationships. Peoples emotions are treated with care, as you would never toy with their feelings. Loyalty is very important to you. You prefer to be secure and are usually confident in your abilities; insecure feelings do not seem to be an issue for you at all. However, you can hold back a bit when expressing your love for another because you wish to be certain that the person is trustworthy. You are modest, and while you enjoy beautiful and lavish surroundings, you do not require them for your happiness. Who someone is on the inside is more valuable to you than what they look like. You want a deep, meaningful relationship and shallow partnerships hold no interest for you. Innately, you comprehend that true love takes time to unfold and becomes stronger the longer you are involved with someone. Friendship is taken seriously as well and you are a loyal, steady friend. One of your best traits is that you are emotionally stable. You are naturally responsible with those you care for and can be very dutiful to them. Self-restraint is not a problem for you and no one would ever consider you a wild child by any means. However, people value the amazing abilities you bring to the table. Inside of you is a very strong individual capable of persevering through even the toughest of challenges.
You are self-sufficient, unconventional, open-minded, unusual, and a bit of a rebel. This placement boosts your ego though may also create selfish behaviour and inability to discipline yourself. Your disposition can change quickly from one thing to another and you may feel as though you are an outsider. There is a difficulty in sticking to one project until completion, as you move rapidly between one task to another, unable to focus your energy. Unreliable at best, others feel as though they cannot trust you to keep your word. You tend to act on impulses, trying to channel your inner tension and nervousness. You may be accident-prone due to your careless actions and lack of patience. Changes in your life happen often and suddenly; the unpredictability tries to teach you spiritual wisdom. You may be interested in technology or mystical and astrological subjects, though are unable to stand by them for very long. Independence to live your life the way you please is of utmost importance to you and you strongly desire to venture out into new experiences and random adventures. There is something inside of you that urges you to challenge convention by behaving in eccentric, sometimes shocking ways. You strive to alter whatever you come across, regardless of whether or not you actually have a superior plan. Others find you strange and you may feel as though you are an alien living among a different species. However, this does not seem to faze you, rather it inspires you further. You can be selfish and must learn to consider other peoples needs and feelings. Try to pay attention to, and truly absorb, what other people are saying before you come to conclusions. Your mind is very active and you need constant new stimulation otherwise you lose interest quickly; challenges are always welcome as they keep your brain busy. Your intellect is well developed though you may wish to work on your emotional intelligence. In your mind, you are correct and others just arent. Develop a way to monitor your urges, rather than acting thoughtlessly.
You are giving, caring, charitable, and would readily share whatever assets you might have. For the people you care for, you would quickly extend both yourself and the material items in your possession, however you will usually only do so if it isnt too much trouble for you. A luxurious, stylish, relaxing environment is essential to you and you refuse to do any manual labour. Your charismatic, pleasant, polite demeanour is perfect for hosting company. Good karma from a past life assures you luck with your finances and acquiring assets. There is an inclination towards indulging yourself extravagantly and behaving in a lazy manner; try to curb these habits. At times, life fulfils your needs and desires with so little effort on your part that you may not value what you are given. With regards to your health, you are susceptible to putting on weight due to your liking of tasty food and drink. You are a tender-hearted, out-going, friendly type who avoids conflict and enjoys exploring beautiful, distance lands. It would be most beneficial for you to learn to appreciate what you have and to stick things out even when they are difficult sometimes.
You have a talent for creating beautiful forms and designs, as your spatial ability is superb in regards to what would be considered aesthetically pleasing to yourself and others. You excel in all different types of art and design and would do well choosing a career in these fields. Another option for you would be in creative writing; you are able to use words to paint a picture. Your vocals are likely to be quite appealing to others, almost as if you can hypnotise others simply by speaking or singing to them. Diplomacy comes naturally to you and you are able to articulate yourself in a peaceful manner even in the most trying of circumstances. If you are unable to create art, you may do well in selling it instead. You instinctively pick out what goes well together materialistically or creatively. People find your charming, polite, and often humorous demeanour easy to get along with and this likeability will greatly aid you in any endeavour you are involved with that requires you to work with others. There is a tendency towards thinking your feelings rather than feeling them, and this rationalisation makes it difficult for you to openly convey your emotions to others. Whether or not you work in the creative field, you will certainly value art and creativity in general. It is in your nature to resolve disagreements in a harmonious fashion and soothe any emotional upsets.
You believe in yourself and in your skills to achieve the things you set out for, feeling that you are capable of withstanding any challenge you should encounter in your life. You are ready and able to overcome whatever you need to in order to survive, even if this means changing your own tendencies to do so. A strong will coupled with great discipline promise that you will rise to great heights. You have an excellent ability to persevere against all odds and can be quite resourceful as well. These skills are put to good use when you make the necessary alterations to the outdated systems in your path. You will fight for justice, whether for yourself or when you see others being treated unfairly. You are a leader with a superb capacity for managerial duties. Others turn to you when they need guidance and you put them on the correct path. Very dedicated, you go after your objectives with complete focus, intensely moving forward in an almost obsessive fashion. Those who skirt away from their troubles tend to rub you the wrong way as you are inclined to see them as weak and find it difficult to give much weight to their views, concerns, or to them as a person. You firmly believe that your fate is what you make it and hold others to the same standard. Very perceptive, your intuition quickly picks up on the truth of a situation. You are aware of the destruction that pessimism can cause and therefore passionately and diligently work to unravel these thoughts, applying the same conviction and purpose that you would with everything you do. Those around you intuit your strength and capabilities, treating you as though you have already reached the top.
You have an ability to enlighten yourself through spirituality, whether this ability is conscious or subconscious. Philosophy and acquiring knowledge are important to you and you tend towards idealism. However, you are often accepting of others views, despite them differing from your own. You have keen intuition and a sensitive, creative mind that may lead to mystical abilities.
You have a great deal of ambition and drive to succeed, but you often doubt yourself. You lack confidence in your abilities and are unsure whether others are going to respond to you positively. You have no faith in yourself to overcome lifes obstacles which is why you often work yourself to the bone trying to demonstrate that you are worthy. You are highly insecure and are scared that you will fail. Often you cling to the things you have because you feel that somehow they will be gone tomorrow. It is hard for you to bond with others as you tend to keep your emotions bottled up. Instead, you attempt to purchase peoples love and loyalty. However, that is not possible; you need to acquire this with a genuine connection. How can people see the wonderful things within you if you cannot see them yourself? Your insecurities are so pronounced that when you are close to someone, you require them to consistently reassure you that they care for you, leaving the relationship strained in the end. Perhaps re-think your idea of what it means to be emotionally secure. Deep down you believe that you need to be someone else so that people will accept you or care for you. Many times you feel as though you are the odd one out in a group situation and will act cold and reserved, when the truth is that it is actually very important to you that you are involved equally. Due to your sensitivity, you are likely to wall up and refuse to let anyone in instead of facing the possible hurts and vulnerability that may surface by opening up to someone deeply.
Being cautious and keeping yourself closed off emotionally makes it a challenge to form a bond with someone. Taking time for yourself to reflect and work on personal growth can help you become stronger emotionally as well as allow you to feel more secure, however you need to defeat the tendency to view isolation as rejection and the lonely feeling that comes along with that perspective. You are prone to feeling anxious, irritated, and depressed at times. It seems as though somehow life always throws a wrench in the works when you are trying to achieve something. You may feel like the universe is working in opposition to your best efforts and that you alone must do the heavy lifting for humanity. You are not living this life by yourself, there are others around willing to help you and care for you if only you would let them in. In a past life, you expressed your feelings in an open and loving manner and were cast off because of it. Now you are scared to try again, instinctively believing that somehow you will be disregarded and hurt once more. Your perspective on how to become emotionally secure is incorrect; it is not about others and what they do or dont do, but about how you see things. Despite your cool, reserved demeanour, inwardly you are very caring and crave to love and be loved. Of course there is a chance that your feelings may be harmed, but that is part of life and each painful experience can help you grow if you allow it to.
This placement stands out amongst the others as it has a particularly strong influence. At your best, you gain wisdom by going through something yourself, as even when you do something wrong the information you have gained will carry you. During the most emotionally difficult times in your life, you find a way to rise back up; nothing can keep you down for long and you persevere through your challenges. You are greatly aided by the mental drive this placement bestows.
There is a possibility with this placement to benefit humanity by using your imagination and ingenuity. Frequent fluctuations and transformations are likely to be part of your life and aid you in improving yourself and the lives of others. Intuitively you are aware that these fluctuations are good for you and are therefore welcoming of them. You find yourself striving to better the world, and you are able to do this peacefully and lawfully, without causing strife or disharmony.
You are imaginative with an amazing sensitivity and keen intuition. You prefer to behave in a caring, tender manner and enjoy a bit of romance. You empathise with others, listening to their troubles while never judging them. Your idealistic views can inspire others through artistic ventures, which you find deeply emotionally satisfying. Large bodies of water soothe your spirit and you are naturally drawn towards them. You may find that photographing the sea is fulfilling for you. You can be very selfless when aiding other people. Your emotions may become unbalanced if you are unable to channel your energy creatively. Metaphysical or mystical subjects fascinate you and you may be talented in these fields. There are tendencies towards escapism from the harsh realities of life and you will spend a lot of time dreaming up a better situation for yourself and basking in this dream-world. However, be mindful that you do not end up abandoning the real world and your obligations to it; the only way to conquer you obstacles is to face them. Your kindness and sensitivity can be susceptible to a sad tale, giving others opportunity to use this to their benefit; be careful who you trust. Learn to restrain your intense feelings and keep your feet on the ground.
You are not the assertive type and may have trouble standing up for yourself when necessary. It is important that you find a way to fight for the things you believe in. Always go with what your gut instincts are telling you as you are highly intuitive. Keep away from mystical endeavours that can cause more harm than good, such as calling forth dark spirits, hypnosis, and fortune-telling. You are very spiritual but not always realistic. It is difficult for you to say no when you are tempted by something, so it would be best if you kept yourself out of these circumstances completely. You tend to absorb the energy that you are surrounded with and therefore need be conscious to avoid negative situations or people; stay in a warm, encouraging environment so as to keep your optimism up. Sometimes you feel the need to seclude yourself from the world and over-indulge. When you start to care for someone, you may be prone to viewing them in rose-coloured glasses and putting them up on a pedestal. When they eventually disappoint you, you can feel as though your entire world is crashing down.
It is possible that you will feel the need to escape through substance abuse or lying to create a better situation for yourself. At times you cannot tell the difference between what is true and what is not. Conflict is difficult for you and when something unpleasant must be confronted, you will often escape to one of your daydreams as a way to avoid it. Too easily will you believe what others have told you without a healthy amount of scepticism. Once someone has appealed to your emotions, they can pretty much tell you anything they wish and you would not doubt them. Try to be aware of this shortcoming and reserve your judgement after you have had some time to think things through rationally. If your feelings have been wounded, it is possible that you will create a false story to get out of the circumstance rather than deal with it directly. Because you are so sensitive, it is difficult for you to decipher when someone is genuinely being honest with you; people can fool you easily. Even the smallest of slights can deeply affect you. When you are feeling hurt in this way, your first reaction may be to remove yourself from others completely, even if this is only in your own mind. Your active imagination can interpret a situation differently than it truly is and when you eventually find the truth of the matter, you can sink into despair. A theme of dishonesty or trickery is likely with this placement, whether it comes from other people or from within yourself.
You achieve your aspirations by being dedicated, diligent, forward-thinking, persevering, structured, and on occasion through coincidental good fortune; you tend to get lucky in attaining your goals. People feel they can trust you to be counted on as you are a dependable sort. What you promise, you make sure to deliver. This constancy draws others to you. Whatever you require to accomplish your endeavours seems to come to you somehow, even if it is in the last moments. You are able to achieve equilibrium between what is possible and what is actual. You are able to work well on a team; however you usually feel more at ease when working on your own. You are patient in your work efforts and persist regardless the duration, as you know the effort will be rewarded in the end.
You have faith in who you are and what you are doing. Confident and driven, you have a tremendous amount of self-discipline and will do whatever it takes to succeed. You are aware of what it is that you wish to accomplish and the best way to go about it. Often the one leading a group, others rely on you to pave the path. You are opinionated and direct in communicating your viewpoints, always ready to fight for the things you value. When you see a way to improve something, you work hard towards reconstruction. You have the will-power, the perseverance, and the dedication to achieve whatever you set your mind to. At times, you may become so focused on your work that you continue forward even when you are completely exhausted; tunnel-vision is likely when you have taken on a project. This tendency is detrimental to your physical health and you must find a way to pace yourself and make time for relaxation. You have a strong character though you keep this low-key as you choose to keep out of the limelight. Preferring to be in the decision maker, you are often the one taking the lead in social situations and dislike anyone else trying to govern your life. However, it would do you well to develop tolerance for the way others do things and learn to be part of the team rather than acting director.
Mystery appeals to you and you enjoy delving into the depths to discover all things hidden. You insist on knowing the ins and outs of whatever situation you find yourself in, always asking why. There is a preoccupation around death as well, which is lifes ultimate mystery. If you channel your energies correctly, you may have an ability to heal others. Investigation comes naturally to you and you access individuals and circumstances effectively and correctly; not much gets passed your keen observation. Shallow interactions are of no interest to you and you prefer deeper, more meaningful ways to use your time. Verbal conflict and confrontation are not enjoyable to you though you will engage in them when you feel they are required. You are well able to keep yourself from projecting angry feelings outwardly, though when you happen to allow them to seep out, your emotions will burst forward intensely and others may need to stay out of your way until you cool down.
Those born in your generation have the ability to be of aid to humanity as a whole. Let your intuition guide you in assisting others.
The Planets in astrology symbolize what is being addressed. They behave as actors in a production. What is happening on stage? The signs in astrology are the way that the actors behave on stage. They ask the question how? How is the planet motivated? How are they living their life, in their highest good or in their shadow? The signs describe in detail how the actor might react, behave or conduct themselves.
Sagittarians are sociable, adaptable, positive, trustworthy, truthful, and prone to idealism (learn about compatibility with Sagittarius here). On the other hand they are also capable of being blunt, egotistical, smug, argumentative, obsessive, narrow-minded authoritarian show-offs who skirt their responsibilities. Working with details is not their forte and they prefer something which allows them to use their excellent forward thinking skills and fearlessness towards risk.
Sagittarians can convey their strong opinions forcefully and in a tactless manner at times, speaking their minds often without thinking things through first. This tendency is usually caused by their need to obtain the truth and gain knowledge. Sagittarians can come across a bit abrasive while they believe they are only stating the truth. It would do them well to develop more diplomatic tactics rather than bulldozing other peoples views or feelings in order to make their points. Luckily, most people are intuitively aware that the Sagittarius has good intentions at heart and only wishes to enlighten them.
Nature, in all aspects, appeals to the Sagittarius as they enjoy spending time outside. They have large amounts of energy that needs to be released and playing sports is a good way for them to do this. They are likely to enjoy sports even when they are not the ones playing in them and may need to watch out for a tendency to spend their savings frivolously on spontaneous bets. Traveling or walking may also be a favourite pastime due to their need for freedom and they relish time spent with animals, especially the larger variety.
Sagittarians are deep-thinking individuals who enjoy pondering the meaning of life and various philosophies. Despite whatever odds they may be facing, Sagittarians will bounce back to their positive selves quickly; they have a strong belief in the universe and that things will somehow work out as they are meant to. They strive to comprehend their existence and grow in wisdom. This need to develop themselves can manifest as the Sagittarian trying to do too much too quickly and possibly burning out instead. It would be best for them to learn to pace themselves and take time to relax before starting new assignments.
Sagittarians would benefit from developing a way to focus on their endeavours until they are complete as it is common for them to become bored and restless once the initial enthusiasm wears off. In the beginning, they are full of energy and excitement which spurs them forward, but the menial tasks drain them.
The health of a Sagittarius is usually good, though they may have issues with extravagant cuisine or beverages, and too much of them!
Sagittarians are regarded as out-going, are always ready to lend a helping hand, and though they can be very blunt in their communication, their jokes can be rather understated at times. They can keep a conversation going and may at times argue with others just to argue. This does not keep them from gathering acquaintances wherever they go. Sagittarians are likely interested in philanthropy in some way and will convey these interests practically. They are quick to come to the aid of others and they are loyal, truthful, and wont try to pull a fast one on someone; they are usually very honourable.
Sagittarians strongly need to have their own space and freedom to do what they please. They can easily feel caged in either emotionally or physically and this keeps them from completely committing to anything or anyone. Marriage may be a difficult pill for them to swallow, and though they can be very idealistic and starry-eyed about love, they must have a partner that is more of an intellectual and communicates openly with them. They may be a bit flirtatious at times as they have a naturally charming persona and they expect their partner to be secure enough to handle this; possessive or jealous displays only cause them to distance from their partner. However, it must be noted that a Sagittarius will likely enjoy the hunt more than the obtained victory as they often lose interest once the challenge is gone.
For their career, Sagittarians do not enjoy routine and may switch jobs frequently, dabbling a little bit here and a little bit there until they find something stimulating enough to hold their interest. Travelling is always welcome to them and they would do well in a position where they were not tied down to one location. Working with people face-to-face is also ideal and they would make excellent salespeople, promoters, businesspeople, and the like.
Though they may not be detail-oriented, they have a skill for making plans and they are great at remembering things. The main task is to find what can actually hold their interest; often they will be stimulated by doing something new and different and any sort of game-play can be very enjoyable to them as well.
You convey your feelings in a considerate and supportive way. You are caring, compassionate, sympathetic, tender, creative, and unobtrusive, with a fascinating way of perceiving how others are feeling or may respond to circumstances. You have a large amount of empathy, feeling the pain others are experiencing. Those who are suffering instinctively seek you out as they are aware on some level that you will not judge them for their woes. Often times, people are unable to imagine that you are suffering just as greatly as they are themselves; regardless of your personal feelings you will always do your best to aid those in need. Deep down you believe that the suffering you have experienced happened for a reason, even if the sole motive was to teach you a lesson. Your kind-heart may be misused by others which forces you to retreat from the world to replenish your inner balance. Your spirit craves music and there is a pull towards it. Music becomes a major part of your life or expression, as you discover that only through music are you able to find a home for the often indefinable emotional chaos present within you. You have an idealistic view of love; be mindful that the romantic in you falls in love with the person you are seeing rather an idea you have constructed in your mind. Your daydreams and emotions can be quite real to you and you can become completely engrossed in them, perhaps too much. Your moods may fluctuate wildly, leaving those close to you baffled, unknowing what to do. Challenging projects do not deter you and you are likely to enjoy working for people who are not as affluent as yourself. You absorb the energy around you whether you want to or not and this drains you; you do best when you can work on your own, away from the stressful energies of others. There is likely to be some sort of creative or artistic talent, though you may need to discipline your mind before your fantasies run away with you.
You are able to see possibilities in a fantastic way; grand schemes for the future, fuelled by enthusiasm for idealistic endeavours. Always looking forward, you are more concerned with possibilities than the tried and true; abstract ideas are your forte. You seek knowledge and are particularly fascinated with spirituality and political or religious topics. It may be challenging for you to complete your projects as you can be impractical and dislike attending to the mundane matters that are a necessary part of all developments; your focus tends to dwindle once you lose interest. Mentally you require a lot of independence to go your own way, though you often think along conventional paths. You are likely to take risks and gamble at opportunities. People do not need to guess what you are thinking or where they stand with you, as you are apt to tell them exactly whats on your mind in no uncertain terms. Youre a straight shooter; for you, the fastest way to get from point A to point B is a straight line. Be mindful of speaking too quickly without thinking things through first, as this can cause you, and those you care for, undue stress. Developing a more diplomatic way of expressing yourself can be very beneficial to you as you can be tactless at times. You are likely to excel in business or any field where you are promoting due to your natural ability to influence others. You are sharp, spontaneous, and adaptable. It is likely that you will be involved in more than one assignment, job, or school course at one time. Standing still is not for you as you would much rather travel the world and experience as much as you can, learning and improving yourself continuously.
You are delightful, appealing, pleasant, polite, well-mannered, thoughtful, composed, with an ability to keep things peaceful rather than clashing with others. However, this may lead you to having trouble standing up for yourself when you need to. Though Libras are usually harmonious, Venus in Libra can be quite merciless in romantic partnerships as they know exactly what to say to get what they want. You have a way of acquiring the things you need in your life almost out of thin air. Whatever is necessary to you, tends to find its way to you and people are particularly drawn towards you; make sure that you remember to value these things that gravitate to you. You feel a strong need for things to be peaceful in your life, so much so that you will sacrifice too much at times. Confrontation is difficult for you and you will often pretend nothing is the matter rather than continue with any sort of disharmony. As a marriage partner, some people enjoy a bit of tension but you prefer someone that will equate to you and easily mesh with your character. You like your partner to be gentle, sensitive, and refined. A rough and tumble sort just isnt your style, you need someone that knows how to act in polite company, someone diplomatic and polished. It is easy for you to relate to people and this creates a pull towards you. You are likely to be creative or artistic somehow, especially with your voice. Laziness is something you may have to keep an eye out for as you prefer to stay comfortable rather than putting in the hard work required at times. Indecision is also a typical issue for those with this placement. You often do not like to be alone for very long and seek out others to keep you company.
You hold a large amount of both mental and physical energy. Always on the go, buzzing from one place to another, engaged in your many interests, sometimes you are involved in more than one activity at the same moment! With your lively mentality and curiosity, you require a large amount of stimulation to keep you from getting bored. You seek out new data and love to learn about anything you can get your hands on. It is also of great fun to you to engage yourself in challenging, competitive conversations with others where you can show off your wit and intelligence. You may find yourself suffering from nervous tensions due to your overly active mind, and it would be beneficial for you to establish some sort of exercise routine to relieve the pressure. You are likely to be animated and expressive, often communicating using your hands. You probably enjoy working with the hands somehow and it is possible that you do not have a dominant hand preference. At times you can become so excited about an opportunity that you will venture forward without thinking things through; try to slow down long enough to obtain a clear picture of the situation before entering into it. You dislike standing still and may engage yourself in activities that are not necessarily wholesome or beneficial, just for the thrill of having something to do. Exploring distant lands and cultures is enjoyable to you as you can acquire knowledge from each new situation. There is a tendency towards being prone to accidents involving your arms or shoulders, particularly accidents involving excessive heat. Many times these misfortunes could have been prevented had you been more patient rather than rushing to get things done. It would be best for you to stick to shorter assignments as you work well for brief, intense amounts of time but encounter difficulty if you must sustain your energy and interest for extended periods. Often you will try to multitask, though end up taking on more than you can realistically complete. You dislike routine and require diversity in your projects and in your life in general. You are mentally quick and bright and are interested in playing games or somehow testing your mental agility. Mental competition with others tickles your fancy and you have more stamina for mental activities than you do for the physical sort. On your journey to success, you prefer to utilise your excellent social skills, intellect, quick-wit, astute observations, and ability to articulate yourself. You have a robust sense of humour that tends towards the dark side. Try to pace yourself as you may throw yourself into things with full concentration, only to find you cannot sustain the energy and are unable to continue; working a bit more slowly and steadily will allow you to better keep your word.
You are giving, warm-hearted, sympathetic, and self-sacrificing. With your excellent administrative capabilities, and your desire to be held accountable, you make a better leader than you do a follower. You tend to be enthusiastic and strong-willed. Things that are a benefit to humanity are of interest to you. However, at times you are able to be cold, indulgent, arrogant, flashy, and may have gambling problems. It would be best for you to be respected through your king and giving nature.
Mentally you are rather serious and intentional, with great ability to focus. You are an excellent coordinator and easily decipher complex situations while finding realistic resolutions to whatever difficultly is presented to you. Acquiring knowledge is something you thoroughly enjoy spending your time on. However, you must be mindful of a tendency towards pessimistic, overly sceptical, and gloomy thinking. Anxiety may become an issue for you and there seems to always be sensitivity with your lungs or trouble with oxygen in the system. Take care to keep the air circulating in your bedchamber. The influences of Saturn in this placement will stabilise the typical fickle behaviours of Gemini and allow you to be more mentally balanced. Saturn in Gemini can be very beneficial though you must try to stay positive about what may come to pass. To achieve success, it is necessary for you to cultivate a more systematic way of thinking and behaving.
The Planets in astrology symbolize what is being addressed. They behave as actors in a production. What is happening on stage? The Houses in astrology are the stage. They ask the question where? Where is the action? In the home, in health, in the career or in the marriage, to name a few. The Houses tell the story of where the action is happening, what type of people are involved and what sort of environment it is.
You have a steady emotional nature that is not prone to being openly expressed with others. There is a strong focus on improving yourself and it would be wise for you to learn to share your assets without expecting anything in return, as this can help you to curb your selfish tendencies. You may be drawn to situations where others will use their own personal resources to come to your aid. Luckily, your financially situation is likely to be stable and you may inherit funds somehow. The metaphysical realm or supernatural topics are expected to be of interest to you.
This placement denotes a tendency to be involved in careers that encompass serving the underprivileged public, or working in the medical field or prison system. Your sensitive feelings must be minded as they can subconsciously become problematic for you. It is likely that you feel as though you have been wounded by others somehow and this may prove a challenge. Hidden adversaries may try to abuse your kindness; however, distress leads you to become more dutiful. The maternal figure in your life may have created a miserable existence for you. Aiding others is the surest path to spiritual enlightenment. You have an ability to help others by communicating your own difficult experiences to them. In your career, you prefer keeping out of the limelight and would rather work alone. Seclusion is likely. This sort of work environment allows you to feel safe and secure.

You tend to be open-minded and easy-going with your ideas. Always interested in learning, especially in regards to philosophy or religious studies, you might find yourself teaching others or being a lifelong student.

Friendly, outgoing, and full of charm; you thrive in social situations. Others generally enjoy your company and relationships in general tend to be pleasant and easy for you. You may need to be mindful that you are not being taken advantage of, as you may not stand up for yourself due to an aversion to any sort of conflict. You are probably drawn to someone who is financially successful and physically attractive. You want to be able to spend time together enjoying all of the luxury life has to offer. Make sure to keep your expectations of others realistic.
You truly value partnerships, although acquiring affection may be a little too important to you. Imbalance is something that you need to look out for, as you may expect too much from your partner and relationship. Try not to make a mountain out of a molehill.
You strive to find a romantic partner that will provide you with all of the luxuries life has to offer. You are looking to indulge and are seeking someone who will supply you with the opportunity. Marriage often raises your social status. Be mindful not to become too engrossed in sensualities as they may lead you to trouble. You despise conflict much preferring your partner to be less aggressive and more accommodating. If Venus is negatively aspected, you may need to be careful that your partners moral values are as honourable as they seem.
This placement bestows you with a significant amount of initiative to obtain monetary and personal goods. Your actions, though driven, are often impulsive and you can easily squander that which you have acquired. Although conserving your funds has never been your strong suit, developing a savings plan would be in your best interest, as your financial assets will tend to fluctuate frequently. Try to focus instead on your many other abilities.
You are a loyal and responsible worker, always willing to lend a helping hand to those who need it. Work is satisfying to you and you tend to motivate your co-workers to better collaborate with one another. Enjoying your occupation too much sometimes can make you a workaholic; try to pace yourself. This placement bestows you with good health, though you need to be mindful about indulging too frequently in drink or rich foods. Your circulatory system may be more susceptible to trouble and you must be mindful of your liver.
You have an amazing ability to concentrate on the deeper things in life. You tend towards more serious thinking and can be very patient when you want to get things done right. You keep your mind well organised and can excel in strategy or mathematical concepts, which you may participate in as a hobby. You do not mind engaging in projects that you would need to be involved with for a long period of time. There is a tendency towards a pessimistic attitude, in addition to feeling lonely and possibly even depressed. You may find yourself having issues communicating with your family and your immediate community and this may cause you to isolate yourself from them. Instead, try to think positively and focus on moving ahead. Be mindful of oxygen issues as your lungs may be sensitive; try to keep air in your sleeping quarters circulating well.
You may have a unique career or way of acquiring an income. What matters most to you in this area is the ability to pursue your creative and innovative ideas at will. Often your material possessions, including finances, are unstable. There is an erratic and unpredictable energy regarding resources, which fluctuates continuously; you can never be sure what sort of situation you will find yourself in financially. Fortunately, you are usually able to escape being dragged down by these obstacles.
The work environment you find yourself in can have a large impact on your health and well-being. You require work conditions to be free of conflict and generally enjoyable, as you are extremely sensitive to the energy around you. You can soak up negativity if it is present and this will impact your health a great deal, whether the ailments are real or imagined. Alternative medicine may prove more beneficial to you than conservative methods. Be careful about colleagues harbouring hidden intentions; they may not be as wholesome as they seem. It is likely that you will expend too much of yourself for your job; try not to become a victim.
Your interests tend to be uncommon. You are capable of expressing yourself originally and imaginatively. The ability to create is important to you and you would do well to find a creative endeavour to satisfy this craving rather than conveying it sexually, as you are apt to do. Your romantic life seems to denote a preoccupation with sex and there may be underlying tensions to do struggles for power. You may find it a challenge to understand your children, and vice versa.
