Your fellow Sagittarius Ludwig van Beethoven created sublime music under trying conditions. He was often in poor health, struggled financially, never found love, suffered from depression, and became deaf, yet somehow became one of the greatest composers in history.

If necessary, resort to what Beethoven often did to stimulate his creativity: Pour a bucket of ice water over your head. It might also help to know that Goethe described our hero as “completely untamed.” Do you think that quality had something to do with his high level of attainment?
