Nothing else could explain their Star-Trekish natures and behaviour.
In beginning an attempt to entangle them all, we'll concentrate first on what Libra and Sag have in common, such as - they both like to talk. Yes, talking, very definitely.
In Libra and Sagittarius, mental agility and verbal dexterity are blended in equal parts. The mental agility is always there, even in the more rare, quiet and untalkative Librans and Archers. Instead of expressing their thoughts aloud, they just scribble their philosophies on memo pads, in books, plays or diaries, and keep right on thinking, thinking. As for the more numerous talkative folk of both Sun Signs, they approach their verbal discourses somewhat differently.
It's like this. Both Libra and Sagittarius are capable of being absolutely charming conversationalists, holding groups of people spellbound for hours. Utterly delightful, they are. But they can both also cause your temper to boil, or send you into frantic frustration when they flip over to their reverse communicative patterns. In this area, Libra prefers to drive you into a nervous breakdown by arguing over every word you speak, back and forth, taking both sides of an issue, and leaving you hanging somewhere in the middle. Worse, they invariably win, one way or another - either through their cool, airy logic, or with the wind-up smile they save till the end, which is so dazzling, you totally forget what it was they said to make you angry - and you smile back. They are deadly debaters for this reason.
The way Sag drives you bananas is slightly different. The Archers, when they're exhibiting their negative conversational traits, do their number on you with tactless, yet honest, observations. In the middle of a discussion of earthquakes in California, or the fluctuating price of gold in Colorado, they'll ask you, pint-blank, why you wear a rug or at what age did your hair begin to fall out. This sort of thing could suddenly short-circuit the chitchat, The reason they ask the second one is because Archers themselves tend to lose their own hair early - not all of them, of course, but an uncommonly large percentage of them - and they are consumed with curiosity about the subject. Paba. Take Paba. Para Amino Benzoic Acid. Get it at the Health Food Store, and take 200 of 600 milligrams per day, along with 600 to 1,000 units per day of d-alpha tocopherol (not mixed tocopherols) Vitamin E. You Archers may soon have hair as luxuriant as a Leo's proud mane, and it's also more than slightly possible that the grey hairs, as they fall out naturally, will grow back in their normal colour. Now do be still, won't you? And stop asking so many questions.
When a typical Libra and Sag get together, there's seldom a still or a silent moment. They'll talk away the hours with zest and vigor, exchanging pure enjoyment of all the mental activity. Libra requires mental stimulation, being a mental Air Sign. Sag requires any sort of stimulation at all, being a Fire Sign. Libra's Air fans Archer's Fire, and the flames dance merrily. However, if the Archer presses candor too far, the Libra Scales will topple out of balance, and the Air of the Libra person can whip itself into a regular tornado of anger. Since Libra is a Cardinal Sign, Sag a Mutable Sign, Libra will almost always take the lead in the association. Sagittarians seldom resent this, because they much prefer to communicate and wander around, bearing messages of hope (however blunt) and tidings of good cheer, rather than to be stuck with the boring and restrictive responsibilities of leadership, whether it's being in charge of a business, a home or a relationship. When you're bogged down in al that dull and dreary duty, you never get a chance to throw snowballs, ride horseback, rescue dogs and cats from the pound, inspire people with high ideals or travel around the world searching for truth, scooping up excitement along the way. As philosophical as they are, Sagittarians must have fun and changes of scenery. Even Sagittarian nuns and priests are not stuffy sorts. They prefer their missions to be varied and challenging.
That's another of the predictable things about Archers, of all the assorted types mentioned in the beginning of this chapter. They have a thing
