The Sun leaves watery Scorpio and moves into fire sign Sagittarius tomorrow morning, followed closely by the Moon. The two will conjoin for a New Moon at 7:32 a.m. EST, marking the beginning of a new cycle in the zodiac– one that typically brings a surge of energy and activity after the heavy Scorpio transits that have passed.
Sagittarius is pretty fun, generally. It’s a sign oriented toward the future and the next adventure, known for its optimistic and easygoing ways. But that, of course, is only part of the sign’s nature. Sagittarius encompasses all the great human developments– language, philosophy, religion, law. It describes an energy of aspiring to be greater, of advancing beyond our earthy roots in the animal kingdom– the very image of aspiring to be “like the gods.” It involves higher learning and expanding mental boundaries.
So, a bit more than just easygoing good times. But fun and exciting nonetheless! And we are in for quite a lot of this since Venus moved into Sagittarius last week, the Sun and Moon move into it tomorrow, and Mercury joins them next week. And then big guy Saturn begins its 3 year transit of Sagittarius on Christmas Eve (I will go into this more next month.)
There is a hopeful and eager quality to this sign, which should be a nice shift after the more skeptical Scorpio atmosphere we’ve been wading through. The mood is getting lighter and more festive, and laughter and positive vibes are easier to share. Like anything, there’s always a shadow side to Sagittarius, when taken to the extreme. There’s the danger of being too reckless or rash. Or being overly opinionated, to the point of preaching. It’s not a sign inclined to being careful, so try to keep that in mind.
