CHARACTERISTICS TO BE CORRECTED
If the ascendant or the planet in the Ascendant is afflicted, even though you are mostly good, yet your behaviour occasionally will be inconsiderate. You may lack tact. None else can praise you better than what you can do. Exaggeration and continuous speech without truth are also shown. You will make promises but you will not keep them up. Do not insult or hurt others by giving your opinion even though you may be correct. Be a moderate. Do not develop hatred towards your parents and brothers.
FINANCE AND FORTUNE
Being a fiery sign, you do not like others ordering you; nor will you prefer to sit tight in one place and work. Your desire is to have frequent changes. You fare well when you are given a free hand. As Jupiter rules this sign, you will be a teacher, public speaker, bank employee, or one attached to any religious institution. Politics will prove to be lucky if Jupiter is not afflicted.
FRIENDS AND BENEFACTORS
It is not at all difficult for you to make friendship with any one. In your experience you will understand that you may have some silly quarrels with a stranger on an impulse and you will develop permanent friendship with him. It is similar to a passenger who has taken his seat in the II class in the train and fights with a person, who tries to get in. The person will take his seat just opposite to him. The train will steam off. It will run for some minutes. Then gradually they begin to talk and before they reach the destination, the become very friendly and each takes the address of the other. Later they become good friends. Similarly Sagittarians and Gemini--people will make friendship. 11th house shows friends and benefactors. 6th house indicates enmity and open quarrel. To Gemini-borns Mars is lord of 6 and 11. To Sagittarius-borns, Venus is the lord of the 6th and 11th houses. Hence such results will be given by them, especially during their sub periods.
ROMANCE AND MARRIAGE
If you are a male, your wife should be wise and tactful. Because, your temper will generally flare up quickly and she can understand that it lasts only for a short time. So if she understands you properly and conducts herself tactfully, then the married life will be pleasant. Further the male will be interested in games, sports, Society clubs, etc. Hence he will spend his time mostly in other activities and it will appear as though his family life is not important to him. As he is a person of integrity and morals, with maturity coming late in his life, it is his wife who is to be broadminded, adjusting and accommodative.
