Adapted Libra and Sagittarius
Similarity Libra-Sagittarius: Excitation strength
S+Associating Excitation strength for Libra: the conciliator. Summer’s “daytime” is over. “Nighttime” takes over: One withdraws from oneself in order to make oneself present to the other, in order to get in touch as equals with the outside world. One exchanges, communicates, one seeks dialogue with an environment henceforth considered as a partner. One forms partnerships, one socializes, one cuts corners and disregards or transcends differences so as to link things together.
S+Associating Excitation strength for Sagittarius: the missioner. The associating Excitation strength reaches its climax: one establishes connections, associations or correlations between fields that seem the farthest apart, the most heterogeneous. Sensitivity to general interactions. Wide-ranging cooperations, universal understanding. Disappearance of the individual in his social or natural environment: one just becomes a link of a vast chain. Open, active and generous sociability; readiness to get out of one’s way so that the universal should prevail over the particular.
Similarity Libra-Sagittarius: Inhibition quickness
Q−Inhibition quickness for Libra: the sidestepper. Defence reactions are quick, smooth, timely: fear is mastered. One slips between obstacles, one avoids brutal confrontations, one learns to use the social codes that divert animal aggressivity: politeness, courtesy, diplomacy, subtleties of public speaking. The mind performs quickly fine distinctions, meticulous analyses. With the Sense of opposites: arbitrations, nuances, search for balance.
Q−Inhibition quickness for Sagittarius: the sophisticated. A consummate art of sidestepping, well-knit avoidance tactics, sophisticated people skills: one handles with ease, skill and style the pawns of socioculture, one can opportunely mediate and withdraw, one can advocate a total opening while allowing some selection mechanisms; one can expand indefinitely the field of possible cooperations on an abstract level — but not with just anyone on a practical level, hence an enlightened elitism.
Difference Libra-Sagittarius: Sense of opposites versus Sense of syntheses
SOSense of opposites for Libra: the arbiter. Opposites are associated: black-and-white choices are no longer an option. One compares antagonist elements, analyses their connections and interactions, weighs the pros and cons, strives to make non-exclusive choices. The element that was not chosen is necessary complementary, is a partner to be respected. Hence a relative indecision: the perception of antagonisms and the sensitivity to divergences is associated to a refusal of any segregation. Moderate decisions, balanced choices are factors for twinges, for dilemmas that enhance thinking: the dread of misalliance or the desire not to make mistakes subserve a careful consideration.
SSSense of syntheses for Sagittarius: the unifier. One is in search of an endlessly open macro-synthesis, with all its elements interdependently and flexibly connected to each other. Everything holds together, from microcosm to macrocosm, from top to down, from left to right, from the Earth to the Sky: universalism, cosmopolitanism, encyclopaedism. It’s not even “it takes all sorts to make a world”, it’s “the world is made of a whole”. One is determined to stick to the big picture that absolutely rises above the usual dualities, rivalries, splits, distinctions and antagonisms. Liking for mixings, miscegenations and hybridizations; need to unite the whole personality into a harmonious and dynamic synthesis.

Similarity Libra-Sagittarius: Inhibition weakness
w−Blocking Inhibition weakness for Libra: the beyond-control. One refuses any limit, any constraint, any authority, any safeguard, any border: thoughtless universalism, headlong rush into all dangers, “dysfunction of all senses” (Rimbaud). Absolute freedom - therefore excluding any discipline - leads to licentiousness, to debauchery. The content free from any container becomes shapeless, invertebrate. Rejection of restrictive norms and binding commitments. One doesn’t defend, build or safeguards anything.
w−Blocking Inhibition weakness for Sagittarius: the foolhardy. The blocking Inhibition weakness is at a peak: radical rebelliousness, lack of foresight, impatience, presumption, rashness. Being ready to all excesses, all immoderations; taking the most absurd or the riskiest bets. Trying to reach the unreachable star, running away towards the absolute, the infinity, the unlimited. The instinct of self-preservation is reduced to zero. One doesn’t accept any restriction, any normative framework, ceaselessly escaping from a fake prison so as to go towards an illusory freedom.
Similarity Libra-Sagittarius: Unadapted Excitation slowness
sl+Unadapted Excitation slowness for Libra: the fanciful. The need for control, mastery, organization runs in a void, onto nonexistent or inappropriate objects. Persisting imaginary actions: paranoia, illusions of subjective power, obstinate building of castles in the air, vain tilting at windmills. One perseverates into glorified non-commitments, one gives in to romantic bewitchments or to impressions of metaphysical omnipotence, etc.
sl+Unadapted Excitation slowness for Sagittarius: the megalomaniac. The need to organize and master applies to anything gigantic, immense, extraordinary, colossal. Imagination is carried away into mythomania, the delusion of being controlled, the search for greatness or for mythical heroism. Unquenchable quest for an insane power. Energizing identification to exceptional beings, or empty solemnity that impresses in order to hide the void of a spineless personality; vain hallucinated ambitions against a backdrop of ineffectualness to set oneself a realistic action framework.
Difference Libra-Sagittarius: Egalitarian phase versus Ultraparadoxical phase
EPEgalitarian phase for Libra: the leveler. Associativity evens out: one refuses to choose, one wants to be on good terms with everyone, one flirts with one’s enemies, one associates indiscriminately with all environments without picking sides. Possible non-violence turns into inconsistency. Whatever the circumstances are, one plays it open-minded: compromises. Corners are systematically cut. At worst, one plays the game well with the same contempt or the same indifference towards allies or adversaries. The heart of hearts and the social environment are evened out: one is worth what one’s environment or time is worth; one spends one’s time being fashionable in disregard of any authenticity.
UPUltraparadoxical phase for Sagittarius: the tower of Babel. One wants to integrate and make cooperate the most irreducibly antagonist sides, the most radically alien viewpoints. Great mishmash, ridonkulous associations. What’s normally inhibiting becomes stimulating: attraction for danger, Russian roulette, silly gambles, exhausting one’s supplies with relish. Social hyper-conditioning while aiming at originality: the parlor revolutionary, the self-righteous nonconformist, actions that are inconsistent with the displayed ethics. Excessively playing down one’s enemies: ending up playing their game by dint of telling oneself that one can set the cats among the pigeons provided that everyone cooperates with civility.
