Mercury in Sagittarius
Freedom of thought is what Mercury in Sagittarius strives for -- at least in
theory. These people communicate in an optimistic, forward-looking manner.
Their ideas are generally very big, but it's probably wise to use tact
when you see all the little holes in their arguments. Remember, they mean
well. These people have vision.
always thrilled about focusing on details, Mercury in Sagittarius people
prefer to expand their mental horizons through thinking and reading about
larger subjects, like philosophy. Their thirst for knowledge can be
insatiable, but they have little patience with dry academics or cold, hard
facts. Theirs is a restless intellect. They learn best when they are given
the freedom to think for themselves, when they are truly interested in the
topic at hand, and when the things they're learning are fun.
though their definition of justice might bewilder some, Mercury in
Sagittarius defends justice and freedom religiously. They generally have a
whole slew of principles they follow, or at least defend in conversation, and
they'll gladly discuss them all with you.
optimism is both their strength and their weakness. After a conversation with
these people, you'll probably feel stimulated and invigorated. They make life
a little better for their positive, optimistic outlook. But sometimes that
optimism can be a little blind to reality.
too, is not a forte of Mercury in Sagittarius. Who has the time for
organizing anyway? When the clutter around them gets too unbearable, they're
given to trashing or piling things instead of putting them in their rightful
places. They do appreciate lots of room, or at least the illusion of
space, when they're working, studying, or thinking. So, their office might
look alright at first glance. Open up a drawer or a closet, however, and you
might find it's bursting its seams.
with Mercury in Sagittarius are always interesting. You can't help but admire
their enthusiasm. At their worst, they take to preaching instead of
conversing. This may not be intentional, and can get Mercury in Sagittarius
into all kinds of trouble nonetheless. A good debate is hard for people with
this position to pass up. Mercury in Sagittarius natives think they are very
open-minded--and they are in spots--but they can come across as quite
moralistic at times too. They'll be the first to spot bias or prejudice in
everyone else's communication, but they can be a little blind to their own.
They're not always the best listeners, either, and not adept at picking up
the subtleties in your conversation.
of speech is a trademark of Mercury in Sagittarius. These people get
impatient with indirectness and beating around the bush. It baffles them. It
may even piss them off for a while. A sure-fire way to get under their skin
is to play mind games with them. They may not always pick up on the
game-playing at first, but when they do, they won't be amused.
they're not fired up about some issue or another, these people are
fun-loving. They love to laugh, and it's usually pretty easy to get them

Venus in Sagittarius
When Venus in Sagittarius people are in love, they need to feel they can grow
and expand their horizons through their relationship. They want to learn new
things, and experience everything together. These are idealistic
lovers who want you to appreciate their beliefs, visions, and ideals. They
can be a confusing mix of the light-hearted and serious. They are roamers and
seekers, and don't commit in their relationships as easily as others.
in Sagittarius men and women turn others on with their big smiles and laughs,
their jokes, their grand schemes, their dreams, and their friendly,
flirtatious behavior. They pride themselves on their open minds, but you may
notice they can be judgmental too. They are threatened by inhibitions on the
part of their lover, dullness, and emotional overkill. They are restless, and
won't put up with lovers who dwell on any one thing. When the going gets
tough in their relationship, they have an overwhelming need to run away.
Usually this only means getting out and experiencing something new before
they come back, but sometimes it can be for good. They are attracted to
people in love with life. You don't need to be refined, polished, or graceful
to win their favour.

to grow. Avoid getting stuck in a rut, and understand their need to move on.

their beliefs, join them in debates, and philosophize along with them. When
they feel the need for more experience, join them! Learn to look past their
clumsiness with you and your feelings, and avoid cornering them or forcing
them to commit.

Mars in Sagittarius
When Mars in Sagittarius people get angry, they feel like running. They have
to do something--not about it, but something else altogether. They don't have
a lot of patience to wait things out. This is where the restless and
adventurous nature of Sagittarius comes in. People with this position of Mars
should seriously consider physical activity as the best means of anger
management, if they don't already (naturally) do so.
with Mars in Sagittarius generally have a number of projects going at once.
They are not known for their follow-through, however! They start up new
projects, however, with admirable gusto. Their vision and optimism can get in
the way of completing what they start--they want to do so much, and
they trash things too easily when a new idea takes hold.
the time, Mars in Sagittarius is playful and fun-loving. They love friendly
debates, although they can go to extremes. Some take it personally when you
don't agree with them--why wouldn't you agree, after all? Well, for one, you
might (especially if you have planets in Virgo or Gemini) find plenty of
holes in their arguments. The thing is, more often than not, they haven't
thought things through, yet they're very passionate about what they believe
in. Mars in Sagittarius loves to "wing it".
Sagittarius people see themselves as warm-blooded folk. They are, but
they sometimes run roughshod over others' feelings during their more
passionate debates. They can be blunt with people, although if they have a
more tactful Mercury placement, this quality will be subdued. Their direct,
blunt approach is most obvious in bed. They're passionate lovers, and are turned
on by open-mindedness and good humour. But, they are not usually patient when
sex gets too intricate or serious.
Sagittarius can be a little hard to understand. Sometimes they seem to be the
most easy-going of people--they love a good joke and a good time. Other times
they are on fire--intense and impassioned about something or other. They
abhor anything that fences them in. They need to feel like they have space.
They're the ones who will run away when things get too serious or dull. They'll
likely be back soon--it's just that they need to feel free for a while or
they go batty.
these people argue, they can too easily pick up a moralistic stance that
drives everyone around them crazy. More likely than not, however, they jump
off their high horse sooner than later, and get back to having fun.
Sagittarius is used to getting their way and persuading others to believe
what they believe in. Every now and again, they face the few that don't quite
buy their grand theories, or, worse yet, poke holes in their plans. This is
when these normally fun-loving people get frustrated. In fact, they take it
personally when others don't agree with their philosophies.

The world is filled with adventure, new things to experience, and, most of
all, hope, with this Ascendant. There is an unmistakable faith and enthusiasm
with Sagittarius rising people. Grand schemes, big promises, and a
willingness to explore and experiment are themes, although follow-through is
not a strong characteristic of Sagittarius.
individuals are somewhat restless and often active people. They always seem
to be looking for something that is just out of grasp -- and many do
this their entire lives. They can be quite direct at times, yet they are
likable enough to forgive for their faux-pas. Most have a lot to say and
offer. Their insights and opinions are usually interesting and exciting,
although sometimes lacking in details.
rising people have opinions about everything, and they just love telling
others exactly what they are. Not all people with this position are outgoing
folk, but they all have a way of moving about that at least exudes a certain
level of confidence. Some might even call them naive or overly optimistic.
Even the quiet ones don't shrink from life and from experience.
the most obvious and endearing traits of Sagittarius rising is their
willingness to keep up a sense of humor. Even when they're feeling low, they
manage to find humor in life and have fun with whatever they do have. The
placement of Sagittarius' ruling planet, Jupiter, will give more clues to how
they go about expressing themselves. Jupiter in Capricorn, for example, might
give a more sarcastic approach, but underneath there lies an unmistakable
hope and spirit for living.

Brigitte Bardot, Elvis Presley, and Nicolas Cage.
