My liking for parties, George.”
“My fatal gift of humour, dearest.”
The average Sagittarius man is not as marriage-oriented in his youth as he might be, or as the Libra girl would like him to be. She thinks in terms of togetherness in the total sense; so, naturally, if she’s in love with him, she images rings and vows. There’s nothing wrong with that; in fact, a marriage between them would likely be successful and stimulating.
But if this man doesn’t work the wanderlust and curiosity out of his system before he weds, he may satisfy those powerful Jupiter urges after he weds. Which is preferable? Now I’ve done it. I’ve given the Libra girl a choice. It will take her a time to sort it all out and make a decision, and we can’t just wait around while she’s carefully considering all sides of the question, so best to continue with our examination of her relationship with a Sagittarius male. She’ll catch up with us later.
Not all, but many male Archers are reluctant to leap into legal liaisons the first moment they’re sure it’s love. It isn’t that this man is against marriage, but he just managed to break loose from his family’s smothering hold on his mental, emotional and physical activity, and he needs some time to bask in his freedom, before losing it again. After he’s satisfied himself that the world is definitely round, tried on two or three jobs or careers for size, read up a little on Tibetan mysticism, traded in a dozen or so cars, mastered the art of hang-gliding in the Rockies, tried out some cross-country skiing, adopted a score or so of homeless animals, made an attempt to run for political office – and checked out every third girl he sees (at a distance, Libra – stay optimistic!) to confirm his opinion that his own Libra lady is as supremely smooth and superior as he first thought she was – he’ll be ready to settle down to a discussion of a long-term commitment.
It seems wiser and safer to allow the Archer to shoot a batch of his arrows into the air first, then have the assurance when he returns that most of his curiosity and some of his longings have been fulfilled, and that he’s now anxious to start out on his quest all over again, this time with his woman by his side. On the other hand, if she lets him go free, and he roams too far, he may forget to return, get lost somewhere out there in his beckoning dreams – whereas, if she’d been firmer from the start, he might still be holding her in his arms, while they listen to the silvery sound of rain on the roof – or holding her hand, as they stroll toward the stables to take a moonlight ride on their horses, smelling the sweet hay feeling the cool night air on their cheeks. I just don’t know.
What do you think, Libra? (She’s back with us now, and should have decided. No, she hasn’t. I can tell by the frown wrinkling her lovely Libra forehead. Well, we won’t rush her.) Naturally, there are exceptions, but whether or not to marry is one of the major problems facing this particular 3-11 Sun Sign Pattern man and woman who are in love. Libra unconsciously feels frustrated unless she’s sharing life’s ups and downs, joys and sorrows, hopes and hassles – with another person. A Libra woman alone is like a pair of Scales with one tray missing, so you can see how it makes her feel useless. You can’t weigh anything into perfect harmony and balance when half your equipment is missing – and the man she loves is the other half of this woman’s equilibrium equipment as a total human being. (Unless she’s one of those intensely dedicated Libran career women, with a compatible business partner, in which case she’ll be content for a reasonable length of time – but not forever – without a mate.)
A Sagittarius male doesn’t actually fight togetherness, because he isn’t fond of being alone either. He’s much happier with a friend beside him as he clowns and bounces and seeks his way along today’s trail, leading into tomorrow’s highways. If the friend is also beautiful, dimpled, sweet and huggable, that’s even better. If she should also be bright enough to match wits with him and exchange philosophies (which this girl surely is, and then some), he has no objection if she grabs her camera, field glasses, pup tent, sleeping bag, canteen and flashlight, and tags along with him. It’s only when she starts leading the conversation into dead-end streets like buying property or taking a steady job that he strains at the leash. When he’s older, he’ll mow his lawn and pay his taxes like any other man, but meanwhile, there are sirens out there, singing to his heart a song more seductive than her Chanel, her charm, her delectable dimples, and sadly .. yes, even more alluring than her soft embrace. Jupiter rules retirement in astrology, and this often causes Jupiter-ruled men to decide to retire first, and work later. They get it backwards.
The Libra girl has stopped frowning. She’s smiling now, with that expression of sweet bliss you always see on the composed features of a Libran who’s reached a firm and final decision. She’s rejected both choices, and settled for one in the middle, to make it come out more nearly even. She won’t try to hold him, nor will she allow him to go tramping around the town, the state or the world, mailing her cards and letters. She will go with him. Good girl! See? I told you she’d catch up with us.
It’s an excellent idea for the Libra woman who loves an Archer to go along with him, rather than to try to force him into her mold. However soft, gentle and velvety her manner, he’ll sense the danger of being smothered and becomerestless. She should realize from the beginning that she’ll never completely control this Centaur-Clown creature with the sparkling eyes brimming over with dreams. He was born into the vibration of a masculine Sun Sign, also ruled by the masculine planet, Jupiter, and although Libra is a masculine sign, Libra’s ruler, Venus, is all feminine. In some ways, this may seem to give her an advantage, because she can think like a man, yet appeal to him in irresistible female ways. It’s a powerful combination, but it will never force a double masculine macho vibe such as the Archer’s to submit to petticoat persuasion – or if it should, he’ll be genuinely miserable within, try as he may to hide it. And the purpose of love is happiness, not misery.
He’ll be attracted by her fine mind, and touched by her optimism, so like his own. She looks for the same silver linings as he, behind every cloud. Since she tends to live in a world of her imagination, troubles are never quite real to her. Even those that do manage to penetrate her dreamy consciousness with the sharp stab of reality are normally not allowed by Libra to remain there for long. Her clever mind and talent for logical deduction will usually find a way to solve any problem – or to deliberately discard it, before it grows into a major crisis.
She’s amazingly capable of turning her back on ugliness, once she’s decided there’s no way it can be beautified. Sometimes, a Libra woman will solicit admiration, even when she’s aware that it’s flattery, and to some degree, insincere.
She can talk herself into believing anything, true or false, if it makes her feel cherished – one reason why Libra girls marry early and mistakenly. Still, there are those lovely times when her very optimism turns a negative into a real positive, through the sheer steadiness of her faith. It doesn’t happen every time, but enough times to convince her it’s worth trying, because there’s always the chance that maybe tomorrow She is, however, sensitive to hurt, and to sharp words. With all her ability to paint rainbows over grey clouds, and despite her natural Libra longing for peace and harmony at any cost, if he pierces her soft heart with too many stinging arrows, she’ll weigh him in the cold light of Libra logic, and find his love too lopsided for her. She admires his cleverness and quick wit, but she won’t be his pincushion or his dart board.
A Libra woman respects honesty and idealism, because these are qualities she possesses herself. She enjoys parties and people, social gatherings, art and music, as much as she enjoys reading, learning, debate and all forms of mental challenge. The Sagittarius man is molded in just the right shape to fit her needs and desires. The perfect woman for him must be generous, outgoing and gregarious, be his mental equal and his heart’s twin. She must believe, as he does, that tomorrow will be a better day, and think it’s exciting to do things on the spur-ofthe-moment. He needs a woman who never nags him, who believes in his dreams, understands the word “freedom,” and who will be kind to his animal friends. A Libra woman is molded in just the right shape for the Archer. She’s probably molded in the right shape otherwise too. Being such close relatives of Venus di Milo, most Libra girls inherit her appealing curves, feminine mystique and classic beauty, which is even more effective sculpted in the flesh than it is in
He’s quick to sense every unspoken mental, emotional or sensual desire in her, almost before she knows it herself. He’s also quick to resent the appeal of his Libra lady to every male within the radius of hor completely irresistible Venus smile. They admire her mind, along with her other attributes, and since she so enjoys admiration, she won’t discourage them the way he’ll expect her to and will finally demand that she does. She’s not as fiery as he, and will probably be more tolerant of the way other women are excited by his contagious enthusiasm. But with both of them so attractive, and exuding such a love of life and people, romantic jealousy can’t be ruled out as a danger in their relationship. Since Air and Fire mix well in sexual compatibility, she can arouse waves of passion in him with the extremes of simply a gentle glance – or a stimulating intellectual debate. The first inspires him to the kind of tender (but also burning)
need Romeo felt when he climbed Juliet’s balcony. The second causes the same burning need, without the tenderness, because the awareness of a male that a woman is his intellectual equal never fails to stimulate him with the uncontrollable need to answer it as the deep and feral mating challenge it really is on a subconscious level.
There’s something serene and soothing about her that calms his restless spirit, just as there is something in his physical nearness that excites her imagination – and this causes the sexual union between them to be a happy kind of sharing. There may be times when she seems indefinably elusive to him, as though her body lies within his embrace, but a part of her is elsewhere, and this will trouble him. It shouldn’t because it’s the nature of air to be elusive, and this is what enchanted him about her in the beginning. The occasional fierceness or demanding aspect of his lovemaking may disturb her more tranquil aura at times, but it shouldn’t. It’s just another reflection of his enthusiastic, honest and direct emotions that caused her to tremble with the longing for submission when she first knew she loved him. It’s the strangest thing, how a man or woman will fall in love with each other for a particular reason, then later fail to recognize some prismed facet of that special quality in the person.
People in love can fall out of love as quickly as they fell into love, when they have only their sexual chemistry to interest each other. There’s not much chance of that with Libra and Sagittarius. They’ll always have plenty to talk about. She sees the small boy behind his bravado, and would like to spend her whole life educating him. Every Libra woman has a schoolteacher hidden somewhere inside her. He’s so curious about everything, understanding how a woman feels and what causes her emotions intrigues him. He has a thousand questions, to which she has at least two thousand answers. He’ll teach her a lot too, with his quick grasp of what’s really important. “What will I do?” she worries. “I don’t know whether we belong together or not. My heart is optimistic about our future, but my mind is pessimistic.”
“You can’t decide our future by what your intellect tells you alone.” (His eyes are saying more intimate things.) “The intellect alone is an unsuitable in strument for accurately measuring an extraordinary emotion like love. The mind is clever, but the heart is wiser. Trust your feelings.” He takes her in his arms, holds her very close, then kisses her nose lightly. “Listen to the rain on the roof, like that first night we were together. What do your feelings tell you right this minute, darling?” (He’s quick.)
