It is Sagittarius Season, a time of integrating the lessons of the Archer. Let’s go straight to the mouths of some famous fiery centaurs to best get at the kernels of this excitable wisdom.
Jupiter is Zeus, the sky-god. The sky gives a sense of no limits, endless expansion. Hendrix’s guitar has the same effect. Just look at the gleam in his eye, a total give-away for the zest of this mutable Fire sign.
A Sagittarian understands that seeking is what needs to happen. Things don’t just fall on your lap. You have to engage in the journey.
The Archer understands that indeed, it IS more about the AIM. It is the aim of a goal that generates enthusiasm and spirit. If we keep the aim in sight, we keep the spirit kindled, the faith alive, and the enthusiasm ignited.
Zest is absolute nourishment for a Sagittarian. It permits them to fly high with their ideas and imagination. The contagious fire can then spread and catch on with others, creating inspiration and wonder for the masses.
Sagittarius teaches us that hope is a gentle yet very potent thing. If we can keep a dose of it in our hearts, we are well on our way to kindling the robust fire of Sagittarian strength,
It was Jim Morrison’s idea to name the band the Doors based on Aldous Huxley’s book “The Doors of Perception”, which was derived from the William Blake line: “If the door of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is: infinite”. Sagittarius is a door, an opportunity, a gateway to a broader perspective.
A Sagittarian understands that attitude is everything. It’s not what happens in life it’s our attitude towards these events that matters. Attitude is altitude. Sinatra’s songs often inspire a sense of brazen confidence, “if I can make it there I’ll make it anywhere”… “regrets I’ve had a few, but then again too few to mention.” Sagittarius reminds you to always believe in yourself.
Sagittarius is a day-time dreamer. It dreams and then it points it’s arrow towards this broad and far-reaching ideal. Jupiter co-rules both Sagittarius and Pisces, both of which are associated with dreaming. Pisces is underwater, therefore the dreams are more rooted in the dark subconscious. Sagittarius is the sky, therefore the dreams are more conscious. Spielberg stays true to his Sagittarian center with day-time dreaming.
Sagittarius teaches us to be true to our values, and protect them to foster a true and personalized sense of “rightness”. Having a strong sense of morality is medicine for Sagittarius. Jon Stewart has made a living through the sharing of perspectives to attempt to arrive at new understandings.
Sagittarius has an inner fiery promise of purpose buried within. This sign seeks meaning, and it will travel far to find it.
Happy Sagittarius Season. May the spark be lit, then encouraged to grow, where it can guide you and become delightfully contagious in spirit. Let the sky-horse carry you away to places you know you’d like to be. These places are within reach. Dare to dream in the daylight. Encourage you zest and be mindful of your values. What a wonderful time of year.
