You and your star!
“Choose not alone a proper mate. But a proper time to marry.”
“Seeing his days are determined, the number of his months are with thee, thou has appointed his bounds that he cannot pass.”—JOB, CHAP. XIV, V. 5.
The zodiacal influence for the month of December in general. Its effect on the character, disposition, finance and health of persons born in this period of the year.
The Zodiacal Sign of Sagittarius commences on November 21ˢᵗ, but for seven days, being overlapped by the "cusp" of the previous sign, it does not come into its strength until on or about November 28ᵗʰ. From this date onwards it is in full power until December 20ᵗʰ, it is then for seven days gradually losing its force on account of becoming overlapped by the incoming Sign of Capricorn.
This Sign of Sagittarius is represented in symbolism either by the figure of an archer or by a half-horse half-man, the man part shooting an arrow from a bow.
People born in this part of the year, namely from November 21ˢᵗ to December 20ᵗʰ, and in the “cusp” to December 27ᵗʰ, have the characteristics of their symbol, the Archer. They fly direct to the target in all they undertake. They are inclined to be decisive and outspoken in their words and in consequence often make bitter and unforgiving enemies.
They concentrate all their attention on whatever they are doing at the moment, and see no other way but theirs until their effort is spent.
Their minds are so quick in thought that they will often be found breaking in on the conversation of others and show their impatience with slow or ponderous speakers.
Brutally truthful, they unmask any attempt to deceive others, even when such action is against their own interests.
They never stop in whatever their task may be until they wear themselves out or “die in harness."
They have great enterprise in business or anything they undertake, but they never feel themselves confined to any one line of work.
For this reason they change rapidly in their views. As politicians they will make many changes in their policies in the course of their career; as clergymen they are likely to alter their views cm religion; if scientists they often abandon their profession for some branch of industry, and so on.
They are inclined to go to extremes in all things, make sudden decisions for which they may have regrets, but they will be too proud to acknowledge their errors.
Love of power is their dominating quality.
If, however, they realize that they cannot attain what they have set their heart on, they are likely to stop in the middle of their career, throw their ambition overboard and start something entirely different, or do nothing more for the rest of their lives.
The men and women of this Sign generally marry on the impulse of the moment and regret it later. They are, however, too proud to acknowledge their mistakes and often pass for models of marital happiness.
They are staunch upholders of "law and order" and are regular attendants at places of worship, more from the standpoint that their example is of benefit to others, than because they are themselves religious. Persons born in this part of the year generally enjoy great popularity; they often become “public idols” and have fame and position thrust upon them.
The women of this Sign are as a rule the nobler of the two sexes; they do all they can to make their husbands or their children successful and are willing to sacrifice themselves to that end. They have an intense love of their home and even when unhappily married, they try to make the best of a bad bargain.
They have a high sense of honour and duty, but are very independent in their outlook on life.
Persons born in this part of the year are inclined to suffer acutely from “nerves.” As they advance in years they are liable to severe attacks of sciatica and, if born towards the latter part of the month, they are liable to have some form of paralysis of the legs. They are also likely to have trouble with the sinus cavities of the face, also mastoids.
This part of the year, from November 21ˢᵗ to December 20ᵗʰ-27ᵗʰ, is governed by Jupiter (Positive) which brings to the front all the ambitious desires of the individual born in this Sign.
The Jupiterian influence brought to bear upon the nature by the position of the Sun in Sagittarius at their birth renders the disposition somewhat dualistic.
They can be sensitive, impressionable and reticent, and the next moment confident, impulsive and daring. Above all, they are governed by an untiring mental activity, which never flags while there remains a mystery whose secret nature has not been investigated.
A champion of truth, peace and justice, they always find their true vocation in the service of those who suffer. Their sympathies are strongly with the afflicted and oppressed, and at some time in their life they usually distinguish themselves through some humanitarian or reform work for the good of others. They possess a keen sense of humour and dearly love an argument; in fact, they are pre-eminent among their friends for their exceptional skill in debate.
Fond of fresh air and all outdoor pastimes, they are in their element when exploring or tramping over wild rough mountainous country. In disposition they are frank, open and very generous; their manner is usually courteous, but when crossed they become rather brusque and defiant. They are highly intuitional, and show a predilection for occult and psychic matters; they are honourable to a fault, intensely truthful, resenting deception so much that they often unmask it even at the cost of their own interest.
If anything, they are rather too decisive and outspoken, so much so that they often collide with the opinions and prejudices of those about them. Constant advantage is usually taken of their generosity, people try to deceive them and obtain their sympathy with plausible tales of misrepresentation. They are fond of music and literature and possess much ability in these directions.
Religious leanings are indicated, but their views are heterodox and subject to change at any given moment; yet in apparently strange contradiction, they have a profound veneration for law and order.
The temperament is essentially optimistic and the keynote to their character is compassion and sympathy in all cases of suffering.
The Jupiterian influence on the lives of people born in this period of the year, promises that the only dangers which threaten their health arise from over activity of mind and body. They are inclined to have too many schemes and projects on hand to attend to all of them satisfactorily, and in consequence there is a continuous depletion of the life forces through unnecessary scattering of energy. They are also rather careless in the matter of over-heating and exposure to cold, and on this account they often suffer at some time in their lives with acute bronchitis, but the aspects are on the whole favourable in this respect and show speedy recoveries.
Illnesses will generally arise through surfeit and the condition of the blood and liver. They could escape liability to such things by a study of temperance in their mode of living. They should keep the blood pure, avoid drugs and live hygienically. They should give their mind more rest and practice the art of relaxation as much as possible.
Persons born in this period of the Zodiac have the greatest chance of making money from the work of their brains. They have much originality of ideas and should follow their own intuitions in everything they do.
They seldom do so well with partners and associates, but are much loved by employees, servants and those under their authority.
They often gain through legacies and gifts, but as a general rule they do not accumulate much wealth. If they do, for some mysterious reason it is usually taken away from them in their advanced years or at least considerably depleted.
MARRIAGES, UNIONS, PARTNERSHIP, ETC.
Those born in this part of the year will find their most harmonious relationships with persons born in their own Sign Sagittarius, Third House of the Fire Triplicity. July 21ˢᵗ to August 20ᵗʰ, the Sign of Leo, Second House of the Triplicity of Fire. March 21ˢᵗ to April 19ᵗʰ, the Sign of Aries, First House of the Triplicity of Fire, and in the seven days of the “cusp” at the beginning and ending of each of these periods.
They will also be much influenced by persons born in the month opposite their own, in this case from about May 21ˢᵗ to June 20-27ᵗʰ.
