Sagittarius season is officially here, and travel is highlighted! We can thank Sagittarius for seeking new horizons that offer new consciousness-expanding perspectives. Whether you’re looking to book that vacation to some far-off locale or maybe you are interested in just exploring nature in the New Way, Sagittarius is all about traveling both physically and mentally. While for some people travel is a luxury, for Sagittarius travel is not only a necessity but also a way of life.
Why Sagittarius Seeks New Horizons
Being ruled by Jupiter, Sagittarius is an expansive sign. They are the types that seek new experiences beyond what they are used to. The foreign and unknown appeals to Sagittarius. With the arrow as Sagittarius’ glyph, they are aiming at something beyond their own vision. Although Sagittarius doesn’t know where the arrow will land, they are excited and have faith in what is to come. Because Sagittarius is an expansive, mutable zodiac sign, they understand that to experience more than what they know, they have to be willing to seek out the unknown.
In astrology, travel is represented by Sagittarius as well as Jupiter and the ninth house. The ninth house covers any type of expansive experience. Sagittarius and night house energy rules long-distance travel of 500 miles and more. Whether this is traveling across a country or to foreign and distant lands, Sagittarius desires to meet those who are not native to their experience.
Sagittarius and the ninth house also represent traveling with the mind. Even if Sagittarius can’t get on a boat or plane to someplace new, they expand their consciousness by seeking information that they have never experienced. Contrary to the opposite sign Gemini, Sagittarius is seeking information that will allow them to expand their consciousness and create a “higher mind.” It is for this reason that the ninth house, Jupiter, and Sagittarius rule philosophy, religion, and higher education. These particular subjects give Sagittarius the opportunity to expand their perspective through learning and other perspectives.
In fact, some people may even decide to travel long distances to explore other cultural practices and religions. A great example of this is the person who decides that they want to delve into Buddhism, and they decide to travel to Tibet to become a monk and obtain first-hand experience.
Travel To Expand the Mind
Sagittarius realizes very early that they want to experience something more than what they come from. This is particularly true for Sagittarius individuals who may have experienced a home environment that was limiting in terms of exposure to different people, places, and environments. Once Sagittarius is of age, they often choose to move away from their hometowns. Perhaps they will go to college halfway across the country or even internationally.
Professionally, Sagittarius is likely to choose occupations that will allow them to travel as this gives them the freedom and flexibility to travel while earning an income. A perfect example of Sagittarius energy professionally is a flight attendant.
Far Off Places Are Ideal
In general, Sagittarius prefers to travel far away. By far away, this includes long-distance travel of at least 500 miles or more. While Gemini is the local traveler and messenger using cars and trains, Sagittarius is most likely to hop on a plane to get to their travel destinations.
An attraction to foreign lands appeals to Sagittarius’ sense of exploration and adventure. In order to experience something foreign, Sagittarius understands that they have to move beyond the rivers and lakes they are used to. The local is commonplace and known. Sagittarius wants to immerse itself in the unfamiliar and use its mutability to adapt.
In fact, of all zodiac signs, Sagittarius is the most likely to be an expatriate. Living abroad is quite appealing to Sagittarius energy. Sagittarius enjoys immersing themselves in different cultures in a manner where they must give up the customs and culture of their country of origin to be able to successfully adapt to a new environment. Sagittarius is definitely the person that participated in study abroad programs in high school or college.
Sagittarius will always make it a goal to travel. It’s not a luxury; it’s a need. It’s important to note that Sagittarius seeks travel for more than just the experience of vacationing. Sagittarius genuinely wants to experience cultures different than their own. While others may enjoy staying at a resort while traveling, Sagittarius wants to blend in with the locals to genuinely experience a culture at its most authentic as opposed to just vacationing for a change of scenery.
A Chance To Experience Beyond The Self
The reason Sagittarius needs to travel like plants need water is because it truly speaks to their expansive nature. Sagittarius doesn’t want to stay where they are, hunker down, and stay the same like Taurus. Sagittarius understands that in order to gain wisdom one must be willing to have an open mind. By seeking out experiences that challenge and expand what they know, Sagittarius becomes more than what they are. Remember, Sagittarius’ ruling planet is Jupiter. Staying in one place goes against true Sagittarius energy.
There is the belief that travel and higher education make people “well-rounded.” In some ways, it can…if the person is open to learning. Sagittarius knows that being open to the unfamiliar is what ultimately grants them the wisdom and understanding they desire. The ultimate goal of Sagittarius is to always place themselves in circumstances that give them the opportunity to go beyond the commonplace and regular. The exotic and foreign are pathways to Sagittarius’ expansion.
Ultimately, travel for Sagittarius is an opportunity to expand the sense of self by purposely choosing to interact with people, places, and things that are beyond their native understanding and experience.
