As we continue to prepare and enjoy the holiday season while also drawing a close to Sagittarius season, many of us are embarking on travel to celebrate with family and friends. If you know Sagittarius, they thoroughly enjoy exploring new horizons which are often done through travel. Let’s get on the road again with Sagittarius and discover more about this sign’s passion for exploration through physical and mental travel.
Sagittarius and New Horizons
Due to its Jupiter rulership, the sign of Sagittarius is ever expansive. They’re always seeking new horizons and experiences that will expand their consciousness. In ways, they are similar but different from their opposite sign Gemini. While Gemini enjoys being the community messenger and communicator, Sagittarius seeks to gain information and experiences beyond its locale. Represented by the arrow, Sagittarius has its sights set someplace far off. And just like the arrow, although it is aimed towards a destination, no one really knows where the arrow will land.Read More »
Why Sagittarius Desires Travel
For Sagittarius, travel is the spice of life. These are individuals that would make excellent flight attendants or any profession that requires significant travel. This is the sign that experiences great joy in exploring beyond what is known to them.
There is this desire to meet people of different cultures and to expand their consciousness by experiencing what is different to them. While Scorpio seeks experiences that are more intimate to itself, Sagittarius is seeking the experience that pushes it beyond its original, native environment. Travel is one of the best ways to expand one’s mind because it is through experiencing other cultures that Sagittarius is able to learn more about the world and themselves.
Seeking the “Exotic”
In general, Sagittarius seeks that which is exotic to itself. What is considered “exotic” varies based on the particular Sagittarian’s own cultural experience. This can lead Sagittarius to seek out people, places, things that are totally different from them. This is especially the case with partnerships and friends. Why is this the case?
Because Sagittarius is intrigued by anything that represents something beyond what they are. True to the nature of Sagittarius’ ruler Jupiter, Sagittarius wants to go beyond who they are and learn more about other people, places, and things that will ultimately influence their own perspectives on life. Sagittarius also seeks these different perspectives through philosophy and religion. This is the one sign that may find themselves traveling to a far-off place to study a religion very different from what they were raised.
There is this overarching belief that travel helps to make people more well-rounded. This belief comes from the idea that by traveling people are able to see beyond their own lived experiences and become more aware of the lived experiences of others different from themselves. It is through seeking the exotic through traveling that Sagittarius is able to embrace the energy of its ruler Jupiter which is that of continued expansion.
Traveling Through the Higher Mind
It’s important to note that travel doesn’t always have to be a physical concept. Travel can also take place mentally which is why Sagittarius also rules philosophy and religion. Philosophy and religion offer the opportunity to explore different concepts that we can apply to our own lives. It is through considering the various beliefs of others that we are offered the opportunity to consider whether or not our own perspectives could be changed or enhanced.
Similarly, religion also falls under the Sagittarius rulership. Religions are a set of belief systems that people follow which govern how they choose to navigate their lives. Exploring different religions requires the willingness to adopt particular beliefs and incorporate the ideals of that religion into one’s life.
Sagittarius views the exploration of philosophy and religion as an opportunity to take information and make higher use of it. This can be compared to Gemini and its use of information in a mundane manner. While Gemini focuses on collecting facts and sharing this information with others, Sagittarius’ focus on information is about forming a belief system that will govern how they navigate life.
So, travel is not only physical for Sagittarius but also mental through the expansion of their perception and mind via the willingness to consider perspectives other than their own and incorporate those perspectives into their lived experience.
On the Road Again
With Sagittarius, there’s always this feeling that there’s more ahead. There’s more to learn. There’s more growing to do. They’re more people to meet and explore. In many ways, the traveling that Sagittarius relishes gives them an opportunity to create a life that is a continual journey. While others may see their life journey’s as a final destination, Sagittarius takes the more open-ended approach to life which requires them to aim their arrow without knowing where the arrow will land.
For Sagittarius, it’s not about the destination but the process of learning that comes through their expansive, exploratory experiences. The combination of being a fire sign and mutable makes Sagittarius passionate and adaptable when expanding their consciousness through experience.
Once Sagittarius feels that they have learned as much about a person, place, thing, and/or concept as they think they can, they are on the road again seeking to continually expand beyond what they have already learned. It is for this reason that Sagittarius will always have itchy feet or at least an itchy mind courtesy of their ruling planet Jupiter’s desire to keep growing and expanding beyond what already is.
