Like a speeding arrow from your Archer's quiver, you enter the game of love, your only thought to conquer the man you've fallen for and to beat the competition. All the fire signs, of which you are the third, tend to make a battle-ground of their love life - ardour first, everything else, including conscience and certainly wisdom, second. Where you differ from your fire sign sisters is that you are a sprinter in the love stakes, not a marathon runner, in fact you can be quite capricious and difficult to pin down. Yes, you fall madly in love but you can fall out again with surprising speed. Men are attracted to your vivaciousness, your humour, your get up and go, and your enterprise - if anyone has a solution, you do, if anyone needs help, you're there for them. You appear endlessly optimistic and confident on the surface, but you do get hurt, and rather often. Why?
Well, deep down you are terrified of commitment: you are a free spirit, and even though you need love and support just like anyone else, you are equally fearful of being trapped in the tedium of marriage, your horizons shrinking as the years go by. You are eternally young, always looking for the next 'big thing', the next adventure: you do not take easily to the responsibilities and ties of marriage, even though your biological clock ticks as loudly as every other child-bearing woman's. You are non-judgemental and very liberal in your views about fidelity and marriage: after the initial sting of betrayal, you will forgive and forget; likewise, if some other woman isn't looking after her man, you'll have no compunction in taking him away. A little more consideration about where your actions will take you and how they may affect someone else would go a considerable way to speeding your course to happy-ever-afterness. Nevertheless, you have one of the biggest hearts in the zodiac, and someone usually finds it and keeps it.
They seek him here, they seek him there... Yes, I'm afraid the Sagittarian man is hard to catch - not hard to interest, not difficult to enchant, just near impossible to get to the altar. He is terrific fun, quite the lad, but absolutely not into long-term commitment, in fact he's the zodiac's leading commitment-phobe. If you want him, you're going to have to play the game of running as fast as you can in the opposite direction, refusing all invitations to move in with him, never leaving as much as a toothbrush in his bathroom. Mr Sagittarius loves women who ooze feeling and mystery yet he's also drawn to females who wield power and influence. What drives him away are weeping and wailing, despair and need.
The other Mutable signs top your list of the men most likely to floor and adore you - Pisces, Virgo, Gemini and another Sagittarian. Mr Pisces can barely be resisted: he is the most endearing chap - romantic and idiosyncratic, he keeps you fascinated, and sexually enthralled. In the long run, however, his chronic undependability and his victim mentality can bring the relationship to its knees. Mr Virgo is also a magnet for you. You love this man's mind, his reserve and his unflappable manner - he is not impressed by your dramas, which initially stabilizes the relationship but ultimately stalls it. The Gemini man is your best long-term bet: you both suffer from the commitment jitters but there is just enough sexual tension and enough mutual admiration to keep the relationship going. And much the same could be said for another Sagittarian - two peas in a pod, sometimes in perfect symbiosis on life's path, and sometimes headed in totally opposite directions. Aquarius and Libra are two other serious contenders in the love stakes - easy-going, fair and non-judgemental.

In December of 2014 Saturn will arrive in your sign for the first time in 29 years, so the coming twelve months are all about preparation. There is a parallel between 2014 and the autumn season when nature goes underground: it’s a time to stock up resources and cut down on the non-essentials of life. Now, this may not sound much fun, but if you’d like Saturn’s rewards as opposed to his life-lessons, you’ll want to follow the advice. 2014 is a good year on the whole. You’ll travel, make strong new connections with foreign organizations and people from different cultures. Children are going to be a big focus for many Sagittarians, whether you’re a new parent or grandparent or attending an offspring’s wedding. April’s powerful but unpredictable influences could rock your boat, but any unexpected developments can be absorbed and will ultimately prove to be beneficial in the long term. Final tip: don’t take the easy option.
Eclipses are fateful things: they bring about developments that change our course, and almost always the catalyst to that life-change is a person. Aside from someone proving instrumental in sending you in a new direction career-wise, a powerful romantic attraction could develop that will have repercussions on your life as a whole. Should you begin a new love relationship in 2014, don’t expect it to follow a predictable course. Keep your heart open but do not press for commitment. The element of the unexpected could translate as a partner who has been keeping a secret or there could be some other curved ball – even an unplanned pregnancy – that will put your relationship on a cliff edge. While some Sagittarians will be deeply in love, others may suddenly become disillusioned with their romantic lot; you may feel that your partner provides more disappointment than desire! Late June through July and mid-November – mid-December are two periods when love can be found, lost or cemented.
You’re a doer, Sag, so if and when a job causes you problems, you don’t suffer in silence but start exploring other options. And this is usually a good strategy. However, with Neptune stationed at the base of your horoscope, 2014 is not a year to jump ship unless you are sure what you will be getting into. Promises could prove worthless and the reality very different from expectations. Work through your difficulties; build bridges; do not burn them. You are a natural entrepreneur, a great marketer, and if anyone can come up with an ingenious solution, it’s you. Bringing these qualities together is the secret of success this year, provided you keep expectations low money-wise. If you have a great product investors will be generous. Take a salary cut if it will help secure the job you love; be confident but prepared for the worse-case-scenario, and under no circumstances blow money you may need for a rainy day. That rainy day is coming in 2015!

If you ask me where his musical genius is to be found, I'd have to say it is a mystery: like all great gifts, musicality lies outside the confines of a horoscope.
