The sun moves into idealistic, freedom-loving Sagittarius season today, November 22. Ruled by expansive, optimistic Jupiter, fire-sign Sagittarius loves to roam, to go on world travels—whether that means literally getting on an airplane or watching a movie that takes them to another world. Archetypes associated with Sagittarius include the Philosopher and the Traveler. Freedom of body, mind, and spirit could be a slogan for Sagittarius.
Sagittarius wants to get out and explore, sharing their optimism and generosity with everyone they meet. They are keen to explore the Truth, to dig into philosophy and religion—to explore the meaning of life.
One of the symbols of Sagittarius is the arrow. Because Sagittarius can be so free and expansive, it can be helpful to have a focus. Now, Sag isn’t keen to be controlled. But channeling that idealistic spirit can be a helpful way to give shape to goals and dreams that otherwise might get lost in impatience or over-indulgence or lost to a lack of discernment (Sag wants everyone to come to the party).
As Sagittarius season begins, ask yourself, “Where am I aiming my arrow?”
Not only does the sun move into Sagittarius on November 22, but Mercury and Venus are also tagging along, traveling closely together through Sagittarius. This could be a good time for expanding your mind, for issues concerning freedom of speech and keeping an open mind. You may also want to enjoy traveling with someone you love or spending money on Sagittarius-related things, like long-distance trips, camping equipment, or broadening your mind with some higher education.
On November 23, we have a New Moon in Sagittarius, which means that both the sun and the moon will be hanging out together in Sagittarius. This is the perfect time to set your intentions, particularly with a focus on Sagittarian themes of freedom, travel, and exploration.
Currently retrograde in the dreamy sign of Pisces, Jupiter, ruler of Sagittarius (and traditional ruler of Pisces) will shift course and begin moving direct again on November 23. Maybe you have felt stuck when it comes to moving forward on some plans. Or maybe you have gained some clarity on some hopes and dreams. Whatever the case, now you can begin to see your way forward again as Jupiter expands forward through the fog of Pisces.
