You are attentive to your special inner qualities which enable you to perceive the very essence of the people you meet, the situations you encounter, and the objects you see. You have the ability to understand through your intuition. This faculty is based upon an openness to the other, and thus a certain duality: a budding extroversion, and the predominance of the object over the subject (yourself) in your consciousness. As a result, you have a strong sense of the group and would sacrifice your own ego rather than commit something that is a sin in your eyes, neglecting your social obligations or failing to fulfill your duties to the people you are close to. You can sometimes be perceived by others as unreliable or untrustworthy, due to a sort of 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 (or simply satisfy the expectations of the other). 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 a success in social settings, and you thrive on friendships, partnerships, networks, and corporate liaisons. Your mind is amazingly flexible, arranging harmonious and productive encounters between people and ideas. All of your emotional health is invested in a desire to participate, to mingle, to exchange. Although you are consciously aware of an 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 opening 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
Due to the influence of the sign Sagittarius (the Centaur-Archer), you, like the half-animal, half-human Centaur, have a dual, ambivalent nature. It is natural for you to be simultaneously conventional and rebellious. 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.
