The Sun moved into the sign of Sagittarius, the Archer, on November 22nd and will remain there until December 21st. Sagittarius is a mutable (dual-natured) and masculine energy sign ruled by the element of Fire. If we look at its symbols, we can begin to better understand those born this time of year.
The constellation Sagittarius is a centaur – half man, half horse. Sagittarians are often said to have a logical, philosophical side, along with a more earthy, fun-loving streak, which represents mankind’s struggle between his heavenly and animalistic natures. Its glyph (astrological symbol) is an arrow pointing upward, which is appropriate for a sign whose nature is to constantly learn and question everything!
If you’ve ever known a Sagittarian, you’ll have known someone who is adventurous and seeks to explore every part of their life. Unlike some of the other Sun signs, these people may want knowledge for its own sake, or to satisfy personal curiosity.
Sagittarius lives in the ninth house of Philosophy, Adventure, and Long-Distance Travel. In astrological myth, this Mutable Fire sign is described as a gregarious, honest, fun-lover who was born with a philosophical outlook and a yen to wander ~ Lady Ocalat
They may be happiest when traveling. However, since they can be so busy seeking the meaning of life, the universe, and everything, it’s important for them to remember the little details. Having a more grounded Earth sign partner is sure to help!
A good image for the Sagittarius might be the wandering wise man. This is a person who can keep their mind open, and is willing to learn new ways, but who is always able to stand fast in a belief system and logically argue a point. This is also appropriate because Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, who was not only king of the Olympian gods, but also served as a divine judge. A good judge is impartial, fair, and wise – just like the healthy Sagittarius.
Consider on our calendar where we find the Sun in Sagittarius. We have come through the harvest time and weeks of first frosts. Sagittarius follows Scorpio, symbolizing both death and rebirth. We are also not yet into the lean part of the new year with Capricorn, the shrewd investor. This is a time of inner light, with holidays in many traditions. There is ample time to reflect on the events of the past year, and personal enrichment.
The time of Sagittarius may also be a perfect time to travel, or to share in a different cultural tradition from your own. It is also an auspiciously lucky time of year, and Sagittarians are said to be lucky people. But, as with the centaur, it’s always a good idea to keep one’s feet on the ground while pointing one’s arms skyward.
Sagittarius is esoterically regarded as a sign of balance and of no extremes; there is no great fall and no exaltation. This fact indicates that the disciple has to walk an even way between the pairs of opposites, uninfluenced by either the “power of exaltation or the potency of that which falls.” Neither the valley nor the heights produces any demonstrable effect.” ~ Alice A. Bailey
If you know a Sagittarius and want to become friends with them, a good way to start is to engage in first-class conversation. Much like the Gemini, these people enjoy discussions, although with Sagittarius it is likely to be more deep and far-reaching. You might also consider a gift of something purple, the color traditionally associated with the sign. Think royal, like Jupiter!
Whether we were born under the sign of Sagittarius or know a friend or loved one who was, this sign has much to teach us. Its spirit phrase is “I understand.” Take this time to better understand yourself.
