The Sun makes its annual move into Sagittarius today and the sky will have more fire in it than it has had in months, and combined with the planets in air signs, we have the potential for plenty of “hot air.”
The transition from Scorpio to Sagittarius for me is the difference between living in the twelfth house and the first, so this is a pretty big change for me too and probably the reason Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I’m always thankful for the feeling of having escaping into light and warmth once again! Don’t get me wrong, I like Scorpio and am comfortable with the depth and intensity of this often misunderstood sign. It’s just a case of Libra wanting to balance that with some fizzy fire energy once more.
Over on Real Astrologers, I dug out a post on Jupiter written a couple of years ago, polished it up some and published it again in honor of Jupiter’s rulership of Sagittarius. It explains some of my mixed feelings about the big guy likely due to a natal Jupiter-Saturn square.
Along with ElsaElsa, I feel the need to point out just because we may feel more like partying than we have in awhile, it won’t make the serious issues go away – like Saturn squaring Pluto. Jupiter is headed for another conjunction with Neptune in late December and we need to remember to keep one foot on the ground. Do your computer backups, check to make sure all your bills are paid, pay strict attention to your budget before heading out to do Christmas shopping and generally tether that camel! As someone with no earth in my natal chart, I have had to learn to do things by the book rather than instinct. Those hard earned lessons tend to stick with one . .
Here’s wishing everyone a happy Sagittarius season! Have fun!
