This cusp does not like authority and can often rebel against it. Yet, when they themselves are in positions of authority, they are often able to wield power skillfully. They are however best as entrepreneurs and self-employed environments. They do need a degree of freedom to function effectively. They can be prone to wildness and do not like being just like other people. They may not even bother to prepare themselves for a more conventional life. Those forced by difficult experiences to take stock of themselves when young, may gain a rare sense of direction and purpose. Follow your dreams and vision of life without losing touch with others. Be honest and pure in your motives.

Try to forgive others and yourself more and be a bit less possessive.

They have a high capacity for generosity and tend to follow their instincts. They can however at times be impulsive or even rash. Sagittarius 1's can find excitement in arias that others find mundane or commonplace. They are not really fond of school or formal education and tend to be self-taught and free spirits. They could feel cramped and confined in classroom, especially under rigid rules. They tend to believe in life itself as the great teacher and may develop the credo that living well is the highest creative activity of all. Leisure time can take a great deal of their energy and can be exciting and rewarding to them. Outings or outdoors sports with family or friends may prove to be the main focus of their life.

+-10- 19 Sagittarius The Originator Late Fall Fire Mutable Jupiter The Archer Intuition

This is normally simply for the reason that they rarely consider doing something in any way but their own and not to be seen as rebelliousness. They can fall in the trap of being incapable of being anything but themselves and can make things difficult for others without having an intention to do so. Sagittarius 2 can be very difficult to live or work with and tend to expect that others will understand their often intricate thought processes and highly unconventional behavior. They have an ability to make other people itchy as they are generally averse to compromise or a softening of their stance. Without compromise they can experience lots of conflict or even rejection in personal relationships and in their careers. All depending if they have the tenacity to hang in spite of difficulties. The key is to seek out mates and occupations that suit their unusual nature. They are not greatly interested in getting ahead and can simply give up on worldly goals even early in life, not caring about recognition. However, if earmarked for success by fate they are often propelled forward by events whether they like it or not. It could happen that a Sagittarian 2 who finally gives up achieve success just after giving up.

Get out a bit more and try not to be too different but follow some others examples a bit.
If you make a little effort, people will be able to understand you and let others into your o so private life a bit. Keep things fresh and Resist turning off to life.

Sagittarius 3

+-18- 27 Sagittarius The Titan Late Fall Fire Mutable Jupiter The Archer Intuition

Sagittarius 3 people tend to be high-minded, expansive personalities, thinking big and follow the large line. However they do not often neglect details. Many are craftsman or and technically proficient. They often put their abilities in the service of a higher cause. Often not of a large frame, yet able to convey a weighty presence that can be intimidating or reassuring and hard to ignore. Many born in this period think and do move mountains and need top be aware that they don't bulldozing their way through life. Though their force is hard to stand up to, there are stronger signs that will give great resistance to them and stop them dead in their tracts. This can unsettle them a bit. Not overly verbal individuals, but rather preferring to let their deeds speak for themselves. They are better able to express themselves through writing than speech. Controlling their tempers should be high on their list for when they fly into a rage, their wrath can indeed be frightening. They can however also fall into silence and bottle emotions up. They can manifest a curious lack of self-confidence and generally only respect or take seriously arguments which come from a position of strength. Sometimes taking a hard line with them is what is needed. Not ones for seeking to court favors through devious or underhanded means, their form of persuasion are highly direct. Learning to be a bit more diplomatic can often help them go around rather than through obstacles.

Do not forget the little things in life that can give enjoyment. Simple pleasures of life are worth some time. Try to be more understanding of others and their needs. Concentrate more of your energies on personal growth. Try and blend in a bit more and avoid ruffling feathers so much.

Often demonstrating a talent for sensing the future state of things and in shaping them, Very determined and often great initiators of projects, able to get things moving efficiently in a remarkably short space of time. Patience however is not something they are known for, especially to those who fail to appreciate or endorse their plans. Prepared to move ahead alone with full force if not cooperation is found. Their fiery, impulsive Sagittarians personality can clash with the slower and calculating earthiness of Capricorn. They are often deep, weighty individuals who recognize the power of silence. But need to be careful not to alienate their loved ones.

Be a bit less intensive. Understanding yourself better will allow you to be less at the mercy of your moods, and can improve social relationships. Do not close yourself off to much but allow your warm and loving side to full come out, keep your heart open.
