On November 21st, at 9:33 pm, the Sun wades out of the murky waters of Scorpio and steps into the body heat of a crowded house party, hosted by Sagittarius. If Scorpio season had you ~deep in your feels~, Sagittarius season is here to lighten things up. Depicted by the Archer and ruled by Jupiter, Sagittarius is all about freedom, expansion, growth, knowledge, and best of all, FUN. Chances are, the Sag people in your life (or maybe even you) have been known to be the life of the party, cracking jokes, and dropping truth bombs on everyone they know. Sagittarius teaches us that there is so much out there in this world, and to fully live, we must fully enjoy it. Sagittarius also reminds us that sometimes we must throw caution to the wind and remember that the Cosmos has our back. Speaking of, this Sagittarius season is also painted by Eclipse season! The New Moon on December 4th, which is also a Solar Eclipse, reminds us that sometimes the most abundance comes from that which is unexpected. Closing out Sagittarius season, we have a Full Moon in Gemini, which highlights the dichotomy of what we know and what we believe. Impacting everyone just a little bit differently, this Full Moon is a time for releasing and letting go of certain elements of your life that are no longer propelling you towards your self-expansion and self-knowing.
Throughout the Sagittarius season, we also have a few planetary shifts. On November 24th, Mercury, the planet of communication, moves into Sagittarius. While this is not a comfortable place for Mercury to be, it can be a great time to journal and be long-winded about all of the thoughts swirling in your brain. Joining the Sagittarius party on December 13th, Mars steps out of it’s home sign Scorpio, and into the loud, boisterous Sag. Mars in Sagittarius can feel like unbridled energy, full of expansiveness and wonder, so be sure to direct your energy in ways that are fun, creative, and contribute to your personal growth. Shortly after Mars enters the party, Mercury decides it’s time to bounce, stepping into the serious and determined Capricorn, co-present with Venus. During this Sagittarius season, Venus also turns Retrograde. Given it’s proximity to the end of Sagittarius season, and Retrograde through most of Capricorn season, we’ll dive into that next month!
For more information on how this month’s astro-weather will play out for you, read on! (Hint: read for both your Sun sign AND Rising sign!)
Dear Aries, this Sagittarius season is all about embracing your expansiveness! Where can you grow? What can you dive into? How can you open your mind to new ideas and philosophies?

Pay attention to what comes up for you around this time and be sure to stay away from any manifesting or magic, as Eclipses tend to expose the unexpected.

Sit with what it is your higher self needs during this season, and allow yourself to release what no longer serves you.
This time of year can be a little challenging for you, Taurus, as the sun lights up the area of your life concerned with darker matters, such as other people’s resources and deep, personal transformation.

So while it may be a bit more melancholic for you, there is an element of optimism and expansiveness that comes from learning to rely on others and support your ongoing transformation.
