I had to post this piece as I just remembered this thread
This just strengthens my case on my textbook star sign! There is nothing in there I don't agree with, entirely- even the bad parts ! It's scary, I've always been the same too, ever since I was young.
The Sagittarius woman
Never assume that all explorers, mountain-climbers and world travellers are male Sagittarians. The true female Centaur is as restless, as hungry for experience, as eager to explore the fascinating carnival of life as her male counterpart. This woman needs personal freedom to an extraordinary degree, and she's not famous either for her readiness to commit herself or for her enthusiasm about domestic responsibilities. She may be happier spending a lifetime without either. She's as likely to have a child out of wedlock and happily raise it as a travelling companion as she is to ensconce herself behind secure walls.
Walls, for any Sagittarian are like the proverbial red flag for a bull. Any career which allows space, travel, freedom of movement and opportunities for new contacts pleases the Sagittarian woman. And the female Centaur who isn't career- orientated still needs these things. Failing everything else, she'll join an ashram or become a socialite, throwing the best parties and meeting the most exciting people. You'll often find the Sagittarius woman involved in a cause of some kind, because her astute vision and awareness of larger patterns in life give her a strong interest in and concern for human welfare and evolution.
Sagittarian women can be very opinionated. They're always thinking about something, chewing over it, reading about it, discussing it. Convictions are terribly important to this woman, although they may change regularly. This is a fluid, flexible sign. Sometimes you'll see the more spiritual side of the sign in evidence in the Sagittarian woman's predilection for religion, myth, depth psychology, or various assorted esoteric or occult subjects. There's a love of the unknown and the challenging, the magical and the unexplained.
She also has a strong sense of fun and humour. Tact may not be in abundant supply. Don't expect diplomatic flattery. More likely she'll deliver a verbal punch between the eyes, not because she's cruel, but because she has a tendency to speak before she thinks and doesn't register in time that you've collapsed on the floor. She's usually right, too, which can be infuriating. She may not be strong on logic, but her sharp intuition sees right through posturing and hypocrisy.
This romantic, high-spirited woman can be pretty skittish about being tied down. If she's been badly hurt when young, she may spend a lifetime pursuing a romantic dream, forever seeking the future and avoiding the present. More often, disillusionment will mature her and help her to accept the limitations of human reality.
Don't try to possess her. And don't tell her to do something. Ask. Nicely. The dramatic exit and the slammed door aren't just for effect. She probably already bought her flight tickets weeks before. Sagittarian women need to communicate, and they need to be listened to. If you're after the quiet, docile type, forget it. Many Sagittarian women are great talkers. Some go on too long and become bores. But more likely she'll be fascinating and inspiring. She's a conversational animal who needs an interested, communicative partner. Most important, she needs to be in love. Without a belief in love, her spirit will wilt.
The Sagittarius woman is in love with life itself. Life is to be lived, not nailed down, and although she's likely to take quite a few romantic knocks (not least because her independence and craving for freedom may drive away a few frightened partners), she never loses her faith in the future. This woman is an optimist, and a believer in life's fundamental goodness and meaning. Sagittarian faith is infectious. But unlike most infectious things, it isn't harmful. Quite the opposite: it enriches life.
I don't take it very seriously but the likeness is very uncanny!
