(Part of Joely’s 101 Ways to Love Your Characters)


November 23rd-December 21st

*“I see.”

**”More Than You Ever Wanted To Know About Anything”

***“It takes all the running you can do,to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!”– Lewis Carroll


Fire, like a bank of glowing embers. Be wary, it’s been known to spark.


Masculine. Think Indiana Jones, or the Mr. Kiefer Sutherland (reow). And for a Lady Sage I. Tarius: Lucy Liu


Mutable. They are usually laid-back and go-with-the-flow, unless of course, they’re not.


The archer, usually depicted as a centaur. And Centaurs have an awfully delightful reputation for kidnapping virgins. …What? Scorpios aren’t the only pervs of the Zodiac.

Ruling Planet

Jupiter, larger than life god of excessive self indulgence.

Governing Anatomy

Back. Sore from being such a pain in the ass all of the time.

Preferred Allies

Aries, Leo, Libra and Aquarius

Polar Opposite- Suggested love interest?


Best Adversaries

Cancer, Capricorn, Scorpio and Taurus

Chief Need/Want


Fatal Flaw

Blunt honesty

Positive Traits

Optimistic, jovial, honest, intellectual and philosophical.

Negative Traits

Naive, irresponsible, superficial, and tactless.



(Jax and co are from another WIP-The Obeah Woman. I’ve run a muck with Bahamian dialect here, so it might be a little hard to follow. I apologize if it is and am willing to explain anything. This is my work, please do not take it as your own. Rights reserved and all that good stuff.)

I took another bite of my conch salad and turned so that I could eye him from my peripheral vision without actually having to stare, wincing as the sour juice slid down my throat. “Mudda sick,” I hissed, my eyes watering as I turned to Joe. “You trying to kill customers them with pepper ey? Shoot, you lucky I ain’t no tourist. You know Americans and them can’t take no pepper.”

Joe sucked his teeth as he chopped more green peppers and tomatoes. “Look here ey, Jax.” He stopped cutting and took his knife off the chopping block, pointing it in my direction. I resisted the urge to roll my eyes. “I know you ain’t come here again complaining about the way I is cook? Least if you was a damn tourist I wouldn’t have to deal with your ass coming here and complaining every Friday afternoon.”

I smiled, enjoying the teasing. Joe might be big but he was all mouth for the most part. He was biggity on his best days and damn right unbearable on his worst. I liked him. “I thought the customer was always right?” I gathered another spoonful of conch, tomatoes, onions and lime juice.

Joe huffed and lowered his cutlass. “Not when they is live here they ain’t.” He put the cutlass down then and began to gather the vegetable pieces together. “Acting like you don’t like pepper. You could of gone down to the bridge if you didn’t want no damn pepper.”

I laughed, almost choking when I noticed the man I was watching had moved.

Son of a bitch!

I shifted as discreetly as I could, surveying the square, my eyes shifting from face to face until it landed back on the poor ugly bastard.


In practice

I only just discovered Jacquelyn was a Sagittarius but oh, how well it fits.

I only know one Sagittarius to speak of, but she’s not at all tactless or irresponsible, but may be a little too obsessed with having a ton of children when she gets older. *g*

Any Questions? Comments? Want to put me in my place? Notice any Sagittarean traits in your own Characters?  Have at people, floors all yours.


* Motto of the Sagittarius

** Taken from Born on a Rotten Day by Hazel Dixon-Cooper

** Wish I could take credit for this, but Linda Goodman’s excellent book on Sun Signs was the first to associated Alice in Wonderland quotes with the Zodiac. I picked the ones I liked the most of her selection.

    My best friend is a Sag. And he is every bit a sag, acts like one down to the very last nitpick. I was in love with him for over three years, even though we drove each other nuts. It definitely wouldn’t have worked. ^^

    Lyra- Funny how it’s the ones that confuse the hell out of us that we tend to be attracted to. The boy I mentioned in Aquarius-well, I guess we will call him Mr. Aquarius-was very much an enigma to me, hence the attraction. Also never would have worked. 😉

    Haha. It’s kind of dissappointing when you figure it out but, isn’t it? Of course it also doesn’t help when my best friend bats for both teams if you know what I mean.

    Seriously, I have a curse. I know how to pick guys. Like 90% of the guys I fall for are gay. I personally have nothing against gays, but this really doesn’t help my cause. Lol. 1% have girlfriends, and the other 9% just don’t know I exist.
