SagittariusNovember 22 - December 21
The days after a full moon are most ideal for rest, reflection, and regeneration. This full moon’s effects are going to be more potently felt by all the signs, due to a planetary square that was formed to Uranus, the Planet of Revolution, in the sign of Taurus. There’s a collective push and pull between tradition and innovation. This weekend Sag, you’ll be focused on your physical, spiritual, and psychological health. Check in with yourself and see if your daily, weekly, and monthly routines are prioritizing your wellbeing. If you’ve taken on too much this month, you still have time to press pause and change courses. With several planets retrograde, including your ruler, Jupiter, the less you do, the higher you’ll soar. Spend time this weekend re-evaluating your priorities. Prioritize yourself and your needs first.
Key Themes: career, public reputation, service, sincere interactions, boundaries

Sagittarius, symbolized by the Archer — half human, half horse — is arguably the most positive and optimistic sign of the zodiac. When you think of a Sag, the bow and arrow pointed towards the sky comes to mind, and that’s an adequate way of describing a Sagittarius: always reaching for greater heights, seeking to expand their horizons and reach for beyond. Sagittarius is the philosopher, the forward-thinker, the idealist and the philosopher of the zodiac. Sagittarius will lead to you viewing life, and yourself, from a different vantage point, and this is one of their strongest traits.
Professionally, Sagittarius’ were born to teach and to learn. Even if they don’t pursue higher education, they’ll be self-taught. Their desire to absorb knowledge is contagious, which is why they often make excellent educators, gurus, mentors, advisors, and counselors. Sagittarius is multi-talented and easily inspired. This can be a great combination, but it can also lead to them starting many projects that they don’t always complete. Sag tends to have a short attention span, so they’re constantly in search of stimulation, adventure and action. They thrive when they can exert themselves in a physical way. They may be drawn to spending time outdoors, dancing, sports, and acting.
As a friend, Sagittarius is able to seek out what’s unique and interesting in anyone they meet. This makes them popular and influential, because they make friends with people from all sorts of backgrounds and cultures. Sagittarius has high ideals and could spend hours debating people and trying to get them to see things from their perspective. While they have a stubborn streak, Sag is definitely an open-minded sign, and they’ll listen to the various opinions while remaining true to their own. Sag is extraverted for the most part, and can have quite the wild social life. They can’t be tamed, and they definitely can’t be controlled.
As lovers, Sag tends to press the pause button before letting their emotions be shown in an intimate relationship. Sag may feel more comfortable as friends or hook-up buddies at first, but this may be a self-protective way of not letting people see what makes them tick. Sag tends to keep things light-hearted for the longest amount of time possible. When they do fall in love, it’s as if they never saw it coming, and all of a sudden they’re head over heels in love. Some Sagges may appear to be commitment-phobic, and this can cause their partner(s) or love interests to worry about whether they’re in it for the long haul. The truth is that you never truly know. You have to wait and see. Sag lives in the present moment, and trusts what their instincts are telling them to do. If you love a Sag, celebrate their freedom.
