Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Sagittarius is the 9th Sign of the Zodiac the third of the Fire Signs – after Aries and Leo, is of Mutable Quality and is ruled by Jupiter. The Centaur Archer is the Zodiac glyph and it symbolizes vision and focus. Sagittarius is concerned with questions of a higher order as with philosophy, religion, vision, metaphysics, higher truths, principles, laws both spiritual and mundane and ethics. Other themes include arts and culture, publishing, long distance travel, internationalism, higher education and universities, foreigners, foreign languages, adventure, athletics, risk taking, faith, luck, trust, expansion, joviality and humour. Sagittarius, like its ruling planet Jupiter which is bigger than all the planets combined, is interested in the big picture, with far reaching visions, actions and considerations, and with ‘seeing the forest beyond the trees’. Some of the issues to be overcome by persons strongly influenced by Sagittarius include exaggeration, hypocrisy, pride, over expansion, being judgmental, excessiveness, blunt speech, prejudice, and over-confidence. Sagittarius is about knowing and living ‘the’ truth according to larger visions and higher minded thinking which implies strong beliefs and convictions about how things are naturally and ought to be socially. Teachers, metaphysicians, philosophers, pilots and sea captains, travel agents, civil engineers, salesmen, writers and especially publishers and occupations having to do with distributing knowledge, printers, politicians, naturalists, surveyors, orators, scholars, astronomers, clerics and clergymen are common occupations. Some famous Sagittarius personalities that aptly depict the sign include:
- Jimmy Hendrix – Rock musician
- Noam Chomsky – Philosopher
- Steven Spielberg – Film producer & director

Oh, lucky yay! Here is an invitation to come out and play. The twist is that the game stands to include a competitive edge. So, what can you do to show up prepared? Probably the first measure is to be aware. This is hardly an occasion for slippers. More like boots with cleats.
Rising out of a sinking feeling has perhaps been a challenge these past few weeks. Despite sincere efforts to push through, it may feel like you are stuck, at least in terms of productivity. This should begin to change this week. But you will need plenty of play time too.
You are something of a mystic at your core. Yet you are also a skeptic too. Knowing what to believe and who is an ongoing question. This process leads you to contemplate and meditate but also to retreat and perhaps escape. As the riddle goes, if you stay in the sanctuary too long it becomes a swamp. Go for drier ground.
Although you are happy to continue to cozy in close to home, you are excited by the early scent of spring. Your mood is playful and punchy. You could probably use a boost of confidence, however, which may take a little longer to manifest.
