Want a really rad, real-life example of a Sagittarius character? Meet my new neighbor. Neighbors fall under the “3rd house” category in astrology and my Mercury there means that i have always been blessed with good neighbors. I don’t even need the proverbial high fences. Why they are nearly always Sagittarius is a mystery to me.
But my new, latest Sagittarius neighbor tops the lot. Tall, imposing, and a redhead, she has dogs named after politicians and a penchant for disco. If my dog barks in the back garden, she throws over a treat to shut him up. Zero angst. She thinks it is funny. But then again, everything is funny.
She is actively and ebulliently immersed in the university education of her adult sons. Ms. Sagittarius will “read up on” the subjects being studied and then initiate outspoken debates based on her findings. She successfully runs a variety of businesses – it’s all “on the side” but there are a lot of sides.
Saggo Character Indicators: Dress-Ups, Lecture Ranting, And A Sporting Equipment Collection
My new Sagg neighbor will drop everything if there is the prospect of a party involving costumes. Halloween the other day saw her dressed up as a giant butterfly with – this is the genius touch – the chrysalis still trailing behind as a sort of veil. Annoyed that not enough little children came to her house for trick or treat, she took to the streets with a sack of lollies and accosted surprised kids with her offerings.
Her rediscovery of a “fondue machine” in the garage (she is the only person on the street with an actual garage and it is full of sporting equipment and gadgets she “might need”) manifested very quickly as an Elizabeth Taylor in the Seventies sort of event, complete with lurex threaded kaftan.
Her garden is all cactus because “you can’t kill them” and she is the living embodiment of the Sagg mantra: “never complain, never explain.”
NOTE: this is not my Saggo neighbor in the image – it is a Saggo – to me – vibe.
