When the two of you are together, others might well be excused for thinking they have stumbled into the last act of an opera or a Shakespearean play. When fiery Sagittarius and watery Scorpio meet, steam is an inevitable by-product. Both of you love drama and want to experience the maximum of life's intensity.
And both of you are romantics ... read more
You aim the arrows of your intuitive vision at some distant future goal, and most of your time is spent chasing after one arrow or another. The big question is whether or not you've aimed true. The next question is whether you can find the arrow at all. What really interests you is the excitement of the vision and the fascination of the journey. The goal is, after all, insignificant.
For you, life is an adventure, a quest, and the real sport of living is to make the journey as interesting, varied and informative as possible. Arrival is not the point. You can be dignified and majestic, when the play calls for that role. But since you're a consummate actor, you can play just about any part required to get you to the next stage of the journey.
Ideals drive you, and the possibility of something new and exciting just around the corner - the undiscovered treasure, the unexplored mystery, the unobtainable goal, the lover that got away. You're afraid you might miss something if you allow yourself to get too stuck in the present.
Extraverted Sagittarians can always be found where a new club has opened, a new restaurant, a new film, an exciting workshop or group of some kind. Introverted Sagittarians can always be found pursuing a new philosophy, a new alternative treatment, a new political vision, a new creative project. It's as if you somehow sense these things before anyone else hears about them. And you've got a remarkable ability to make the right contacts at just the right moment. This isn't luck, although others might think so; it's your remarkable eye for the sudden opportunity, your intuitive "nose" that can spot a potential or a possibility thirty kilometres away.
Boredom is your great enemy, and you do get very easily bored. It merely takes doing something twice in the same way to push the more restless type of Centaur out after the next arrow. After all, you've done that one. Why do it again? Never mind all those Capricorns and Virgos telling you about the rewards of disciplined effort. For you, it's the exhilaration of the chase, not the kind of prize you can put in the bank vault. And if you do get that sort of prize, you'll no doubt spend it within five minutes anyway.
Limits drive you crazy. Ultimatums are guaranteed to provoke armed resistance. Your restless mind is always seeking unexplored horizons. Frustration can bring out a pretty explosive temper, but once the air is cleared, you don't brood about it afterward. But you sometimes fail to understand why others get hurt by those blunt, hair- raisingly honest remarks. For all your generosity and wisdom, you can be startlingly insensitive, and also pretty gullible if someone flatters you in the right way. This doesn't make you a great candidate for the steady, enmeshed sort of relationship some people crave.
Your heart is true, but you need a partner who can give you genuine friendship and lots of breathing space. Given that kind of freedom, you probably won't abuse it. You can take grand dramatic scenes in a relationship - after all, you generate enough of them yourself - but you can't bear pathos and whining. And the world of safe, unchanging domestic security isn't your idea of fun.
So what is this great quest that drives your spirit? It's a craving to understand life, a longing to comprehend where we are all going, and why. You're looking for the big meaning in things, pursuing the clues to a great puzzle which is never completed because the pieces keep multiplying. That's a huge life task. Fortunately you have both a strong sense of irony and an acute degree of insight. No Sagittarian lacks that wonderful ability to make connections between the ridiculous and the sublime.
Enough has been written about Scorpio's famous passion to make further descriptions redundant. These descriptions aren't strictly accurate either. Scorpios do indeed possess passion in abundance. But the passion may not necessarily be expressed in the obvious way. Sexuality, for Scorpio, is a gateway, a means of reaching a different order of experience. ... read more
Let's strip away the glamour and the smokescreens and see what's underneath. The emotional needs of the Scorpio man are utterly human: affection, acceptance, reassurance, intimacy, love, companionship. In large quantities. Scorpio men cannot bear coldness or falseness in a partner. That mask of detachment is a mask. Remember that. No Scorpio man will ... read more
