You are naturally observant and introspective, paying close attention to your inner qualities which allow you to perceive the essence of people, situations, and objects. You have the ability to understand things through your intuition, which is based upon an openness to the other. This allows you to see things in a dualistic way, with a predominance of the object over the subject (youself). As a result, you often have a strong sense of the group and are willing to sacrifice your own ego in order to follow social obligations. You can sometimes be perceived by others as unreliable or untrustworthy, due to your opportunism or disloyalty. However, these are superficial characteristics. The real reason for your behavior is psychological and resides in the fact that you are ready to do anything to maintain the harmony of the group. However, you sometimes lack self-assertion, and this makes you contradictory and unreliable when you face certain superficial decisions. Moreover, you have a chameleon-like ability to blend in with situations and prevailing moods. You are thus quite successful in social settings, but you may find yourself longing for something more solitary at times. Your mind is amazingly flexible and is able to arrange harmonious and productive encounters between people and ideas. All of your emotional health is invested in a desire to participate, to mingle, and to exchange. Although you are consciously aware of this ardent desire to be sociable, unconsciously you blame yourself for failing to achieve your ideal goal, which always seems to elude you. This is why you sometimes have phases of discouragement, followed by renewed zeal in your work efforts or group participation. Because you are always seeking the perfect group, the ideal form of cooperation, you sometimes despair of ever attaining it. You have a natural tendency to find common ground for people, to reconcile differing opinions and viewpoints, and you are partial to any arrangement which promotes cooperation or fellowship. Because you are not aggressive by nature, you know how to make peace. You are a skillful diplomat and go-between. As a corollary to your openness to society, you are closely related to your environment. The society in which you move contributes in large part to the formation of your character and attitude. Through social contacts and friendships, you have elaborated a personal code of ethics which reconciles societal norms and the values your family, friends, and relations have passed on to you. It is important for you to find a way to make all these components harmonize, or you will feel a bit lost and
As Sagittarius the Centaur-Archer rises in the sky, you, like the half-animal, half-human Centaur, have a dual, ambivalent nature. You can happily submit to society and convention for a time, only to emerge committed to rugged individualism, or vice-versa. Your inner attachment to an ideal of liberty and emancipation does not prevent you from adopting a sociable, pleasant attitude at social events. This dichotomy in your personality grants you such useful social skills as adaptability and poise, but inside, you face a quest for your true identity and consciousness. Your primary psychological task is to maintain the harmony reigning between the two entities dwelling within you. You must not limit yourself to being either one or the other. You will achieve true psychic and existential stability by personifying a blend of these two behavioral tendencies. When you are comfortable with your individuality, you can radiate optimism and energy; flexible and elastic, you will delight in any change or unpredictability, without losing sight of your long-term purposes. Eminently social, you will express your true nature by becoming deeply involved with groups and taking on duties and responsibilities as a member. You will enjoy your ability to infuse them with your idealistic enthusiasm and visions for the future. Your special gifts for dealing with energy make you apt to occupy a position of great social responsibility.
Amanda Ellis yearns for a purpose in life, even faraway or abstract.

Deeply social and liberal-minded, you have a great sense of diplomacy and a gift for reconciling differing viewpoints. Friendly and willing to be of service, you are unable to refuse an appeal for help, and your courtesy can tend toward a certain sentimentalism. As a result, you commit yourself to too many people at the same time, and may sometimes feel spread too thin.
As an artist or student of art, you have a profound sense of beauty (harmony, rhythm, composition, associations and juxtapositions, etc.). You like your independence, but will nevertheless bow to custom and usage in good grace. Your sense of fairness and justice is keen, and you spontaneously take up the cause of the defenseless.
Born in the seven to ten days after the full moon rose, Amanda Ellis is of the “last quarter” lunar type. As a result, her personality is fairly independent and self-sufficient. Her ideas are original and often bold, but, to her dismay, do not often garner a majority of followers. Her sense of humor is her best communications tool, but she often switches to a more severe tone which breaks her charm over her audience, and her methods do not always please the masses. Her lack of flexibility hinders her strategies and projects, and she would gain by developing her sense of diplomacy and tact. Although she is not unduly attached to success, because she is so used to being ahead of her time, her failures take a psychological toll on her. Because each setback wears her down a little more, she should try to avoid further disappointments by conforming to contemporary reality a little more closely.
