SagittariusNovember 22 - December 21
Fly Sagittarius! Your season continues to light up the dark with harmonious connections between Mars, the Moon and Saturn. The moon is currently in Aquarius, reminding us to think outside the box, and get creative about improving our lives. Sag, the Sun is still shining bright in your sign – making it the perfect time to let yourself be inspired. Your season is all about broadening horizons, adventuring and exploring as much as possible. Honor these impulses, because in so many ways they make you who you are. Celebrating your solar return doesn’t have to arise in the traditional ways, if there’s something that you want to do – go make it happen!

Sagittarius, Mercury retrograde has challenged you to re-assess whether your societal role is satisfying. When Mercury stations direct in service-oriented Virgo on October 2nd, your mind will thaw for a 10-day shadow period during which it’s important to get honest about what’s happening. Sagittarius, are you submitting to a role simply because it’s a good opportunity or does it truly bring meaning to your life? As Mercury enters Libra on October 10th, activating your sector of friendships and future goals, consider opening your mind to other people’s points of view regarding your life’s direction. Sagittarius, if you’re sitting on the fence about what’s right for you, remember that you can get by “with a little help from your friends”, as The Beatles sang it.
After a 6-month retrograde, Pluto in Capricorn stations direct on October 8th in your sector of money and self-esteem. Pluto retrograde may have highlighted the unhealthy ways you evaluate your worth; thus, prompting an unearthing of your income and value systems. Sagittarius, capitalism may make us believe that it all comes down to how much we earn and possess, but as the planet of Transformation resumes direct motion, consider: What do you truly value and what sustains your exuberant energy?
The lunar cycle peaks with the Full Moon in brave Aries on October 9th, which harmonizes with your fiery enthusiasm and provides an opportunity to revere how amazing you are, Sagittarius. As this Full Moon conjoins Chiron, the Wounded Healer, and your ruling planet, Jupiter, take time to celebrate the brave actions you’ve taken for expressing yourself creatively and channelling your zest for life in healthy ways since April 2022. On the other hand, check in with yourself: Has overindulgence left you feeling burnout? Are you demanding people’s appreciation to fill a void of insecurity? If so, the opposing Sun and Mercury in Libra may demand balance and nervous system attunement to come back to centre, Sagittarius.
On October 23rd, Saturn, the planet of Reality, stations direct in your sector of communication and learning. How have your mental and communication faculties been challenged over the past 5-months, Sagittarius? What did you learn about boundaries and patience? With Saturn retrograde, you may have harnessed your inner authority for responsibly dealing with siblings or people in your local community. Whatever it may be, Sagittarius, have faith in the wisdom gained from these experiences for the broader context of your life.
October 23rd continues to be a cosmically charged day as both Venus and the Sun enter perceptive Scorpio, providing an opportunity to regroup and enhance the light of awareness in your sector of spirituality and healing. It’s Scorpio season until November 22nd, Sagittarius! While you may yearn for external knowledge and expansive experiences, Scorpio season is ripe for reflection, introspection and regeneration. How is it possible to connect to the meaning of life if you are constantly seeking outside of yourself, Sagittarius?
The New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse on October 25th provides a powerful portal to renew and heal your soul. Sagittarius, you may experience unexpected ego deaths, which thrust the essence of your existence into awareness. Rituals, mindfulness, meditation, dreamwork, ancestral healing, reiki, hypnosis, therapy or any activity that allows you to remember the whispers of your soul can be deeply restorative and cathartic, especially over the next four weeks.
When Mercury enters Scorpio on October 29th through November 17th, you’ll be positioned with probing alertness for learning about your emotional patterns and unconscious landscape. As Tara Brach stated, “Each time you meet an old emotional pattern with presence, your awakening to truth can deepen.” Remember, Sagittarius, your humour is an asset when it comes to dissolving ego attachments, so allow laughter to be your medicine as you let go of the old in preparation for your annual rebirth occurring next month.
The month concludes with Mars stationing retrograde on October 30th for its first of three retrogrades in Gemini, your opposing sign. With Mars retrograde, consider reevaluating how you assert yourself and go after what you want, especially in relationships and one-to-partnerships. Sagittarius, while it’s in your nature to optimistically project yourself into the world, are you communicating your intentions with your loved one(s) and business partners, and considering their intentions in return? Sagittarius, pay attention to any difficulties with compromise and cooperation during Mars retrograde – this awareness will serve you well once Mars goes direct on January 12th, 2022.

What They Avoid: 9-5 jobs, following the established norms, being politically correct
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.
