"Believe it can be done. When you believe something can be done, really believe, your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing a solution paves the way to solution. "
--Dr. David Schwartz

    The Sagittarius woman doesn't really like housework, as she would rather be busy outside. She probably was a "tomboy" growing up and wanted to be out with Dad seeing what he was doing. She's as smart at any of the guys, and a great athlete, if she wants to put out the effort. But, with Jupiter ruling Sagittarius and always "expanding" being fat can be a real issue for her. The Sag woman has a "blunt" mouth and if you ask for her opinion, she will just tell you the plain truth. "Out of the horse's mouth" applies to her, so you had best be able to hear the truth. She is very critical and sarcastic like Scorpio, or wanting to get revenge, as she is too "up front" with putting how she feels out on the table. You know where you stand with her.
    She does love to spend money, and she buys lots of gifts, but she works hard and can always make more than she spends.
