On November 22nd, our forward motion into the dark half of the year continued, as the Sun thrust itself into Sagittarius like the Kool-aid man and generated a hopeful spark of new possibilities.

After the intense energy of the previous month, it’s time for us to take a collective exhale out of the emotional turbulence of Scorpio, as we shift out of the 8th house depths and into the 9th house of higher purpose. With the transformative experiences of Eclipse Season in tote, we enter the house of expansion and apply philosophical meaning to our recent experiences. After all of the 8th house death and rebirths, the 9th house brings a restoration of sorts, tacking on our newly acquired wisdom like a feather in our cap, as we look to the horizon for the inspiration that will light the flame of this next chapter.

Where Scorpio Season had us in the emotional abyss of water, Sagittarius Season dries us off with a crackling fire, and entices us to let our passions burn through us as we act on them in real time. In mutable fire, we are an unpredictable wildcard, moving towards whatever feels natural in the moment, darting and zigzagging our direction just so we can feel the excitement of change. Where Scorpio Season influenced us to strategize before executing plans, Sagittarius Season puts two middle fingers up and pushes us to release the self-imposed constraints that tie us down and limit new experiences. As you move through this month, ask yourself: What can I incorporate into my life that will offer me a greater sense of freedom and pleasure in my day-to-day life?

While it’s no secret that the collective state of the world is facing global traumas, this Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius Season is the reminder that despite the hardships, we must turn our faces towards the Sun to feel its warmth regardless. As the sign that’s a recent graduate from the 8th house, it’s not as if Sagittarius doesn’t know pain, it’s that they’ve learned through their suffering how to find the greater meaning of it all. This month, the lucky Jupiter energy encourages you to set your sights on an area of life that you’ve been wishing to expand, so it’s a good time to roll the dice and take a bet on something that is meaningful to you. Jupiter pushes us to think big and dream big, so if you’ve been toying around with taking a risk, or starting something new, this is a good time to point your arrow at your aims and shoot your shot. The trick with this energy is not just believing in your dream, but also believing that you can make it happen. 

Sagittarius is the truth seeker, the philosopher and the spiritual rock and roller, who’s always on the lookout for a new adventure, a couple good laughs and a sense of freedom. In an energy that craves wide-open spaces, independence and sovereignty of thought, try to utilize this energy in a way that relights your fire, so that when Capricorn Season rolls around, you can take that rejuvenated, lust for life with you (cue an Iggy Pop sing). In the 9th house we are searching for avenues of personal expansion, in hopes that we can transcend past the familiarities that we grew up around. Whether that’s expanding on personal belief systems, traveling overseas, learning new subjects, or even un-doing dogmatic ways of thinking that were ingrained by our childhood environments. For many of us, this can be a time of enlarging our view of the world and making a conscious effort to break barriers of our own minds that have limited personal growth. 

This month, we thrive on blunt honesty; for better or for worse, we will stand on our soapboxes and call it as we see it, without the cushion of tactfulness. Reactions are big and so is our impulse to overdo, overindulge and overcommit.

Sagittarius Season reminds us that generosity and laughter is medicine for the soul, and that most things in life are not as serious as we make them out to be. When we can zoom out far enough from our own lives, we can conceptualize the bigger picture from a bird’s eye view perspective. Suddenly, we are reminded that many constraints in life are the influence of somebody else’s viewpoint and that we are free to seek our own truths. When you can become the renegade of your own life, that fire within you sustains a steady burn. 

 Happy Birthday Sagittarius!
