Sagittarius (Nov. 21-Dec.21) Wander. Under Mutable Fire Sagittarius, we want to expand our horizons, travel in the mind, body or spirit, to commune with strangers and with the natural world.
The mood is restless, cheerful, friendly, and outspoken.

you are worthy, dear sagittarius, not because of the work you do, or the people you help, or your potent intuition. you are worthy simply because you are.
saturn and pluto join in your second house of value, resources and worth on january 12. the pressure of these two may crush any external sources of worth that keep you slurping the illusion that you ned something outside of yourself to be whole.
these two may also bring some stark money realities to your surface.

How can you cultivate a practice of choosing joy in the face of uncertainty and challenge?
shake off anything threatening to dull your shine, and move firm and deliberate toward yourself.
By year's end, saturn and jupiter move into aquarius, your third house of communication and the mind. open yourself to new thoughts and new words to describe the shifts in your foundations.

2020 eclipses in Sagittarius trigger new honesty, and this honesty encourages us to restructure the systems of power while Saturn and Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. By the end of 2020, Jupiter and Saturn enter Aquarius and empower us to integrate an authentically collaborative philosophy.
Sometimes it can be hard for you to forgive yourself, so you don't look under all the rocks. Go for it! Let go of some preconceptions about yourself and about what you do or don't have to offer the world—find a new, empowering authority.
From this integral place, heed the call to help your community get honest about, and improve on, their relationships to financial and ecological resources.
Curiosity, honesty, exploration, playfulness. We grow more curious about what's unfamiliar.
You can speak truth, talk to anybody, anytime, and say what needs to be said. Like a wild animal, you hate to feel confined and need to know your escape route, but are disarmingly inclusive and aware of your global citizenry.
Develop tact and focus.
Those born under a Sagittarius Moon are cheerfully and shockingly outspoken, can speak truth to power and see humor in dark corners.
They have a natural feel for animals, children and people from other cultures: they're global citizens. Don't fence them in; they are naturally loyal but need to feel the door is open.
Our temper lightens; we grow resilient, frank, restless, and need a change of scene. Our minds roam the natural world, to faraway places and vast philosophies.
While we're impatient with details close to home, we open our hearts to children and wild animals. Dance, hike, explore the night away.
Sagittarius's brings the end of Fall season and welcomes us into the darkness of winter. We leave the still deep waters of Scorpio to explore the wide open spaces of our inner self and prepare to launch ourselves out into the world.

The final preparations for winter are being made. We gather food, kindling and winterize the garden for the cold months. Many animals are either growing their coats thick or starting hibernation.
We bring our fires inside and bask in their warmth. Sweet scents fill our homes as we cook and nourish our bodies.
The nights grow dark and cold, we spend less time outside. The darkness of winter prepares us for the burst of growth that occurs, still far away yet always coming closer.
Sagittarius rules the late evening. Libra and Scorpio lets us put the sun to bed, Sagittarius shows us the vast beauty of true night.
We prepare for our own fasting and hibernation as nature does the same. Bedtime rituals flourish here. We tell stories and relax our mind into unknown worlds, mysterious places and grand adventures of myth .
Often we step outside during this time and wonder at the many worlds above our heads.
The reality of place in this universe is revealed during this time, we can see the reaches of the universe yet still only touch them with our imagination.
These body parts enable us to travel and move. Sagittarius also known as the hunter, survives mainly due in part to the effectiveness of our motion.
The focus here is on our lower body, which can be represented as well in the sign of the centaur, a horse body of pure power lies beneath us!
Being a fire sign, once we activate these muscles and body parts, we can literally feel the "burn" of motion when exercising.
These planets yearn to roam and explore. These traits often have a deep sense of adventure and excitement. A planet in Sagittarius is shaped by philosophy and experience.
Planets in Sagittarius need to be reminded of logic and reason, or they can be clumsy and take unnecessary risks.
Overall, these planets love to express themselves and explore the wide world.

“The Houses (twelve pie shaped sections) of our personal birth chart attend to all areas of our life. Each house represents a basic facet of human experience from birth to death.”
The placement of each house in your natal chart is dependent on your rising sign. A person with an Aries rising has what is called a “natural chart”. A rising sign is the sign ascending on the eastern horizon on the time of your birth, it can be calculated using a rising sign calculator here!
As we further our education, we can tap into higher levels of inspiration, unfold in wisdom and develop our social conscience.

Wise and benevolent Jupiter is two and a half times more massive than all the other planets in our solar system. This gas giant even produces its own heat and is circles by a microcosm of moons.
Jupiter is our quest for truth, living the belief systems that we hold and walking the path of what those beliefs say about us.
It involves an ever expanding desire to educate the Self through knowledge toward higher law, the adventure and opportunity of being on that road—sometimes literally entailing travel and foreign or international culture, language and/or customs.
