SAGITTARIUS: SPIRITUAL SEEKER OF TRUTH
The Month Ahead
As the Sun moves into Sagittarius Tuesday it squares Mars in Virgo and is inconjunct retrograde Jupiter in Taurus. Our optimistic and expansive personal energy, will and vitality will need to be tempered by taking action in realistic, practical and down-to-earth ways.
The Sun in Sagittarius disposits to Jupiter in Taurus, which forms a Grand Earth Trine with Mars in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn. We can benefit by directing our visionary enthusiasm and wisdom to rebuilding political and monetary structures that are of service and provide wealth and security for all.
It is fitting that we celebrate Thanksgiving when the Sun is in Sagittarius. This is a time to be generous with others, and to express gratitude for all our good fortune and blessings. Jovial Sagittarius loves getting together with friends and family to enjoy good food and drink.
While Sagittarius lends its fiery warmth, good cheer and love of fun to our winter holiday celebrations, it sometimes believes there can never be too much of a good thing! It can become over-indulgent and extravagant. Rein in excessive and irresponsible attitudes and behaviors during the holidays. Give thanks for all you have and are able to share with others. Stay connected to your deeper truths and what is genuinely meaningful in your life.
MERCURY RETROGRADE IN SAGGITTARIUS
The evening before Thanksgiving the planet Mercury will station retrograde at 20 degrees Sagittarius, broadly conjunct Venus and the transiting North Node. It will continue its retrograde motion until December 13th when it stations direct at 4 degrees Sagittarius.
This retrograde period will be a good time to go within and examine attitudes and beliefs that color your perception of life. How optimistic are you? Do you trust in grace and believe in serendipity? Review how you share your truths and vision of life with others. Check tendencies to be overly expansive, preachy, or attached to being “right” before you expound on your philosophy.
We will be wiser and better prepared to move back into the world when Mercury stations direct on December 13th if we have taken the time to review, reflect, and resolve any problems in these areas. Then we can move forward into the new year sharing our ideas, knowledge and philosophy from a higher vantage point. As Mercury crosses over the transiting North Node once again later in December we will be blessed with a truer vision of life that is more deeply connected to spirit.
SOLAR ECLIPSE NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS
A New Moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon conjoin overhead from our perspective on Earth. This represents the fusion of our outer consciousness and awareness, symbolized by the Sun, with our inner emotional and unconscious self, symbolized by the Moon. This is a fertile time for new beginnings, for sowing the seeds of your new projects and endeavors.
The next New Moon will occur on Thanksgiving, Thursday November 24th at 10:10 p.m. (PST). This New Moon will be at 2 degrees Sagittarius, trining Uranus in Aries, squaring Mars in Virgo, and semi-sextile Pluto in Capricorn. This is an opportunity for us to create a new expansive vision for ourselves that is connected to grace and benevolence and frees us to be our individuated selves. We will be challenged to act in practical ways that serve others as well as ourselves, while continuing to see old structures that seemingly provided stability and security erode away.
The area of your astrological chart where 2 degrees Sagittarius falls represents the area of your life where you can consciously create new beginnings to explore truth and gain a higher perspective of life. Set aside time to reflect on how you can create new beginnings in the areas of higher education, travel, religion, and philosophy. How can you expand your vision of life and learn how to believe? How can you best connect to your inner truth? Where can you experience grace and serendipity in your life?
You may wish to set some new goals or create some Sagittarius affirmations on this Thanksgiving New Moon. Examples are: “I use my enthusiasm and love of learning to expand my understanding and wisdom.” “I connect with my spiritual truth, have faith in Grace, and trust in serendipity.” “I respect the spiritual path and Truth of others as I travel my own path.” “I expand and broaden my vision of the world as I journey through life.”
You will begin to see evidence of the seeds you sow on this New Moon as they come to fruition on the following Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Gemini on December 10th. This Full Moon will reward you with new ways you can communicate your inner Truth and share your philosophy to uplift others.
“Truth is not defined by political power, nor by religious conviction . . . Truth is not determined by human desire, nor by human decree. Truth is the harmonization of the human mind and heart with what is.”
– Rev. Terrance A. Sweeney, Ph.D.
“When we know and are aware of the planetary movements and conditions, and integrate them into our lifestyles, we can then be in alignment with the energies that they bring to support us.”
– Karen Bishop in
