Careless in his youth, given to driving fast cars with little regard for safety, over-pleased with the sense of excitement, it provides him, the Sagittarian at least learns more from his mistakes than any other signs. Although his delight in personal freedom never leaves him, he will evantually be able to make full use of formidable intelectual potential, studying serious, perhaps philosophical subjects.
His early years will be somewhat unconventianal: he will turn up at a dinner party with a sweater when everyone else was formally dressed, and he will be given the impression of being more interested in sports and outdoor activities than in the intelectual exercise which he really needs.
He will particularly enjoy exploring subjects unknown to him - languages are a Sagittarian field - storing his knowledge and later putting his knowledge to good use. He will set his sights on an objective which seem beyond him; as it comes within reach, he will rise his sights still higher and be anxious to start on a new project almost before he completed the old one.
The Sagittarian always need to feel free: he cannot stand the slightest feeling of claustrophobia, either phsical or emotional. The symbolism which give the Sagittarian symbol a free-raging, pointed arrow and often a body of a horse, is significant. He will often be devoted to riding, as well as to other sports which involve movement through open country. His exploration through the unknown may well be both physical and intellectual, and is certainly true of him 'to travel hopefully is better than to arrive'. His life must always contain some element of challange.
The Sagittarian is versatile and like the Geminian, needs to have more than one task on hand at a time. It is not unusual for him to hold down two jobs. As he needs great deal of intelectual exercise, so he needs an above average amount of phsysical exercise. If he feels tired, it usually means he is bored, and a change of occupation will be restorative. Ever effort should be made to keep this restlesness under control, as otherwise it will cause consiradable unhappiness to the subject and his marriage partner.
