The season of the Archer is officially here. From November 22nd to December 20th, the sun moves through the buoyant, happy-go-lucky, optimistic sign of Sagittarius. For the next 30 days, we get the opportunity to enjoy the joys of life courtesy of the Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius. Now that we are coming out of the darkness of Scorpio season, Sagittarius lightens us tremendously. This is an excellent time to take stock of what makes us feel happy and content within ourselves and what brings us gratitude and joy. Embrace the willingness to see other perspectives that broaden our minds, and seek out new people, places, and situations to give us a more expansive view of life.
When The Sun Shines on Jupiter
When the sun moves into the sign of Sagittarius, Jupiter rules the day with all of its abundance and luck. If you’re still reeling from the effects of last month’s solar and lunar, now we have the energy of Sagittarius to help loosen up and embrace joy.
Living A Life of Abundance
One of the reasons Sagittarius is considered the most abundant sign of the zodiac is not just due to its rulership by Jupiter but also because of its expansive properties. Sagittarius expects things to work out in the end. This optimism ensures that they don’t carry any baggage because after all we got rid of all that during Scorpio season. Now we feel lighter, free, and ready to seek new horizons that give us a broader view and experience of life.
When you live from a place of gratitude and optimism, you attract the same. Sagittarius knows this innately, and many of us would do well to adopt this positive perspective over the next 30 days and beyond! Now, this doesn’t mean being purposefully delusional. Instead, this is a focus on expecting the best and knowing that you can take the actions to get what you desire. Remember, Sagittarius is a fire sign that is always on the move. Action combined with optimism and faith is sure to lead to prosperity.
Seeking New Horizons
Sagittarius season is also an excellent time to seek out new horizons. Sagittarius/Jupiter energy is all about traveling and seeking the “higher mind” through advanced education and the study of philosophy and religion. For those that enjoy traveling, long-distance travel that offers the experience of far-off lands where we can learn about new cultures and customs is a great way to broaden our perspectives.
We can also travel with our minds by seeking our higher education and studying foreign concepts. Sagittarius, Jupiter, and the ninth house govern the mastery of a specific subject. This is where we go to choose a field as opposed to Gemini, Mercury, and third house energy which covers grade school education and learning. Harnessing Sagittarius energy through expanding the mind can show up as seeking a degree or studying the teachings of popular philosophers which then help us consider the meaning of life.
Sagittarius energy could also introduce us to wise individuals, teachers, gurus, and mentors that could have a profound impact on our lives.
Keeping The Faith
One of the greatest traits about Sagittarius is its ability to keep the faith. If we want to get the best out of life, keeping hope alive is important. It’s one of the reasons why Sagittarius is one of the most optimistic forward-looking signs in the zodiac. Over the next 30 days, we have the ability to genuinely know that everything will work out for the best now and in the future.
For some of us, faith comes from the inner understanding that all is well all the time. Even when there is rain, the sun will shine again. Because Sagittarius innately knows that abundance and success are guaranteed, they are willing to take the risk of venturing into new horizons. At some point, we will all land on our feet. This is the mutable, optimistic energy of Sagittarius.
For others, it could be a leaning towards establishing faith by connecting to particular religions or philosophical principles. Sagittarius and the ninth house also govern the established religions such as Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, etc. This is an excellent time to consider the religion or faith-based beliefs that we have and consider how they contribute to our overall perspectives on life.
Even if religion isn’t your thing, Sagittarius and the ninth house also rule philosophies. Considering the human condition and growth of ourselves as individuals and in relation to all of humanity is likely during Sagittarius season. Deep conversations about our personal and collective experiences are likely to expand our minds and give us a different perspective that could really change our lives. Expect interactions to be filled with wisdom that grounds our faith.
Reviewing Belief Systems
Sagittarius season will also have us deep in our thoughts about our belief systems. Why do I hold certain beliefs? Do our belief systems reflect who we truly are or are they ingrained perspectives and beliefs that come from our past histories and even our family of origins?
When we seek out new frontiers and horizons, we get an opportunity to learn about things beyond what we know. For Sagittarius, the goal in life is not to know everything. The goal in life is to expand the mind by going beyond what is familiar. When we subject ourselves to others, we have an opportunity to encounter those who offer us views and perspectives that could influence existing belief systems. Since Sagittarius is a mutable sign, these new influences can make us want to adapt our belief systems.
Hopefully, over the next 30 days, we will all have an opportunity to interact with others who offer some insights and perspectives that we would never have thought of which could ultimately affect our belief systems in a positive manner.
Time For Expansion & Gratitude
It’s time to get out of the ruts and take the risk of trying something new courtesy of Sagittarius season. If taking big risks like traveling abroad or changing your mind about a particular perspective seems hard to do, start off small. Do anything that helps you question what you think you already know. Seek out what is beyond what your circle of knowledge.
Try a cuisine from a different culture. Consider taking a college course or enrolling in undergraduate or graduate studies. Explore faith-based practices such as religion and philosophies knowing that a commitment is not required to anything one faith now or even in the future. We can gain wisdom from everything and everyone and still be free to do as we please.
Ultimately, Sagittarius season is all about expansion, optimism, faith, and gratitude. When we hold the energy of gratitude we are in a better position to receive more abundance in our lives. Embrace optimism, joy, and abundance, and see the glass half full or even overflowing in order to welcome all the luck and happiness that Sagittarius season has to offer.
