Sagittarius is his Sun and Mercury sign (Mercury in Sagittarius - Postcards from an Optimistic Mind) Sagittarius is also ‘The Joker in the pack', the one that manages to scrape humour from the most unlikely of sources and apparently Niemeyer did indeed have a mischievious and wicked sense of humour. As well as having a fondness for practical jokes his earthy humour, full of surprises, goofiness, pranks and high jinks is exaggerated by the conjunction of Venus to Uranus and driven on by surprises.
Using Niemeyers own Jupitarian words once again 'it’s a fantastic Universe which humiliates us' and with his life and work he added to the worlds marvels and beauty for us all to enjoy.
