The Sun entered the sign of Sagittarius on Sunday, November 22nd at 10:26 a.m. EST. Sagittarius is a fire sign that is considered to be masculine and mutable (adaptable) in nature. It is ruled by the planet Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system. Perhaps this is why both are considered to have expansive energies.
The myth of Sagittarius is about the centaur Cheiron who raised Jason, Achilles and Aeneas. He was famous for being a prophet, doctor and scholar. He was a talented archer.
Above all else, Sagittarians need to feel free. In youth, he or she may be given to driving fast cars, disregarding safety for the sense of excitement it provides. Even in later years, the Sagittarian cannot abide either physical or emotional claustrophobia. They need to feel free in all ways.
Their intellect will lead them to seriously study subjects unknown to them with a fervor that is much like an arrow – aimed straight at the objective. As that objective comes within sight, the Sagittarian will aim even higher, sometimes starting on a new project before the old one is totally completed.
The challenge of a problem is a delight for a Sagittarian, for it invokes the sense of exploration and they love to explore! Old problems may best be dealt with along new lines, approaching it from several angles and sometimes unusual ones at that.
Sagittarius is not a worrier, but sometimes can create danger for themselves with blind optimism.
In a relationship, Sagittarians need both good physical and intellectual interaction. Still, he/she needs to feel free so jealousy or possessiveness will quickly sour the relationship.
Where careers are concerned, they make good teachers, librarians, lecturers, philosophers, explorers, priests, publishers, writers, and more. It’s not uncommon for a Sagittarian to hold down two jobs. Staying in a grindingly dull job, such as factory work, will not last long for a Sagittarian. They identify with their intellect and need a level of stimulation in this area with their work. Physical exercise can create a means of escape from dull conditions.
Positive traits of a Sagittarius include being: Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, adaptable; being sincere and frank, being dependable and scrupulous; having good judgment; being freedom-loving.
So there you are. These are the basics of Sagittarian energies and qualities of those born under its sign. So, for almost another four weeks these energies will be available to expand on any area of your life you care to utilize them for. Enjoy!
