The Astrological Sun Sign
When reading the Sagittarius Personality Profile below, keep in mind that it is a
generalization of the various influences at work during the time The Sun was passing through that Sign.
When the positions of the heavenly bodies at the time of birth are known, their influence can be further defined
to add greater insight into the positive and negative effects they can produce.
In order to get this information, we recommend a Natal Chart be developed specifically for an individual. Real
accuracy is only obtained by charting the exact positions of the heavenly bodies, at the precise month, day,
time, and city, an individual was born.
This information provides an enlightening "specific" Personal Profile, which can be studied, referred to, and
acted upon, throughout the individuals life.

This sign governs the thighs of the Grand Man, or Microcosm. It is a masculine, diurnal, eastern, double-bodied,
speaking, choleric, dual, fortunate sign of the Zodiac, the negative pole of the Fire Triplicity, governing the
thighs, hips, and the motor nerve system. The higher attributes are love and introspection.
The Sun enters the sign Sagittarius on or about November
22nd, and departs from it on or about December 21st of each year. The Sun, just entering the sign, should be given
six days before coming into full touch and action with the influence of the sign. Therefore a person born between
the dates of the 22nd and 28th of November would not receive the full central results of the sign's individuality,
as he would be born when The Sun was on the edge of the sign. This is known as "The
Cusp." Its nature and impulses partake of the sign The Sun has just passed through and out from, and the native
will also partake of the attributes of the sign of the Zodiac in which The Moon is located at the time of birth.
The People born under this sign usually aim well and hit the mark in all matters. Because of this characteristic
they are prophetic, and can tell the outcome of almost any enterprise from its inception. They rarely make
mistakes when they follow their own inspirations, but are sure to be led astray if they rely upon the advice of
Sagittarius people are born busy, and keep busy under all circumstances. They are distinguished for minding
their own business and keeping their own secrets. They do not trouble their neighbors' affairs, but are exceedingly
active in their own. They always want to finish one thing before they begin another, and are as remarkable for
their carefulness in detail as are the Aries people for
carelessness or inability.
These people are enterprising, progressive, and far-seeing, always courageous in an emergency, but frequently
timid and afraid when there is no need for action or quick thought. An emergency is an inspiration. They are neat
and orderly, and very careful in money matters, saving, but not penurious. It is seldom that you find a Sagittarius
man or Sagittarius woman without money. Their talents are varied, and they can earn a dollar while others are
deploring the need of one.
Sagittarius women are fine housekeepers, excellent wives, and usually judicious mothers. They have a great love
for children and animals. This is also a musical sign, and an occult sign, as those under its influence naturally
turn to the spiritual side of life and make the most useful teachers.
These people see things entirely different from the rest of humanity. Belonging to the realm of prophecy, they
are also naturally clairvoyant and clairaudient. They hear words and see visions that the world knows not of. Their
minds reach out far beyond the present, and so it comes to pass that a Sagittarius person is often accused of
fabrication. These people always mean to tell the truth.
All Sagittarius people are of one thought and one idea at a time. More than one thing on their minds at the same
time distresses them. They are very decided in everything they do. They frequently jump at conclusions before
properly weighing, by calm reason, the full consequences and difficulties, but being very hopeful, they often
overcome very great obstacles.
They are quick to foresee events and are apt to speak out their own conclusions feeling sure they are
right. Often they make enemies, for people do not usually wish to be told the truth in plain words. Almost all
of these people are very blunt and outspoken for what they feel is true, but right and truth wrong no man. There is
a power about them that makes their words strike home, even though those addressed are unwilling to admit their
correctness. When these words are entirely free from anger and resentment, they compel attention and often
reformation. However, the impetuosity of those born under this sign is very apt to dim or spoil the effect of
Sagittarius people can often be misunderstood. They see so clearly, think so quickly, and because of this
natural intuition are so sure of being correct. As a result, they frequently strike squarely against the
opinions and prejudices of those about them. This leads to discussion, unrest, and perhaps serious quarrels.
They cannot bear to see suffering. The first impulse is to relieve it, and they spare neither time, money, nor
strength in this work. This labor is always one of the heart, but strange to say, it is often repaid with
ingratitude. Their generosity and goodness are constantly taken advantage of. This can be the cause of great
sorrow, bitterness, and wounds so deep as to almost paralyze all effort and desire to be of use.
