SagittariusNovember 22 - December 21
This weekend’s Quarter Moon in Taurus encourages us to take a look at the new moon intentions we set a week ago and refine them. There could also be some initial challenges popping up, and we’re being asked to practice patience in the face of delays or mix-ups. Sag, this wknd you may be in the mood to create greater structure in your life and have more stability in your routine. This is easier said than done though, because Jupiter, your planetary ruler, is in the sign of Aries, telling you to live in the moment and be more spontaneous. Balance isn’t necessarily your strong suit, but finding a way to ground yourself amidst your ascension is vital to your sustainable success.

Can you believe we’re at the last month of the year Sagittarius?
We’re still in your season for most of it, making it one of your most beautiful months of the year. December invites you to step into your own power, freedom and authentic embodiment in new and beautiful ways. You’re continuously on a journey of growing and learning Sag, and this time will be no different. The universe is reminding you to be gentle with yourself, to let go of expectations and any harsh standards you’re carrying. This can be your gift for yourself through this next Solar return.
The month begins with the planet of dreams and spirit (Neptune) going direct in its home sign, Pisces (December 3rd). This magical shift will feel like the beauty and love is back in focus, or higher resolution. It will be a powerful time to connect with other like minds, and to see what new forces of potential collaborative manifestation are at play. It’ll feel equal parts spiritual and beautiful, so it could be a nice time to begin (strengthen or return to) a deeply connective community – for example Yoga, Capoeira or Qi Gong classes.
On December 7th the Gemini Full Moon further highlights this idea, as it activates your sector of relationships. Here, there’s a reminder to seek out and surround yourself with humans who are just as powerful as you. Or even better, the ones who inspire you to grow. These are the beings who do not feel like victims to the universe, and rather choose to live life in an active and embodied way. The ones who seek to grow, learn and have fun along the way. There’s that idea that you’ll be the average of the five people you spend the most time with Sagittarius, so take a good look at whether (or not) that averages out to something reflective of your highest self.
Jupiter enters Aries on December 20th, meaning the planet of luck and expansion is lighting a fire beneath our individual journeys. Jupiter is your ruler Sag, so this is going to feel wonderful. If you’ve been experiencing some lethargy, stuckness or uncertainty, you’ll likely start receiving inspiration right around now.
On December 21st we move out of your season and into Capricorn. This energy activates your sector of natural beauty and physical health. This means the next four weeks will be a time to connect to the earth, and nurture yourself through simple tools.
Good food, lots of water and sunlight. It’s amazing how calming the nervous system can open us up to new ideas, focus, energy and clarity. Capricorn season invites you to lean into exactly this – and what better foundation to launch into the new and glorious year of 2023.

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.
