Magical Image of the Third Face of Sagittarius in Picatrix
In the third face of Sagittarius ascends a man like in colour to gold, or an idle man playing with a staff; and the signification of this is in following our own wills, and obstinacy in them, and in activeness for evil things, contentions, and horrible matters.
