Sagittarius Season: What is your vision?

Hi, Everyone,

The Sun entered the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius on November 22, 2023 at 9:03 am EDT, where it will transit through December 21, 2023. Sagittarius is a fire sign, which is ruled by the planet Jupiter. Jupiter is the Grand Benefic of the Zodiac, and it represents abundance, good fortune, hope, travel, wisdom, and higher learning. Sagittarius is a sign of freedom and broad horizons.

This lends some hope after a particularly heavy Scorpio season driven by Mars tailgating the Sun in Scorpio; Mars travels with the Sun in the month of November. When it leaves Scorpio, it leaves its dignity and where is particularly strong; but, painful emotions do not drive actions, as has been the case in the past few weeks.

The Sun forms a challenging square to Saturn in Pisces, which becomes exact on November 23, 2023 at 4:47 am EST. Saturn represents and restrictions. Saturn is a mutable fire sign, which is a sign of freedom and truth, and it can feel like your freedom is being challenged or that you are not able to tap into optimism as much as you normally can. Use this energy to focus on what small habits or actions you can take to tap into the hope, as it is there for you! Saturn in Pisces tests our faith and dreams, and it requites an ability to suspend disbelief that your dreams are inaccessible in tentative times.

Mars, the planet of action, passion, aggression, and drive, exits the sign of Scorpio and also enters the mutable sign of Sagittarius, on November 24, 2023 at 5:15 am EST. Mars tours in Sagittarius through January 4, 2023. Mars in Sagittarius is a time to manifest, promote, publish, teach, take a workshop or a class, and travel! Take action to magnetize your vision. Mars clashes with Saturn, on November 25, 2023 at 11:57 am EST, and there could be some frustrating delays with travel or a sense of being held back in some way. It is an excellent energy for focusing on a demanding project that requires a lot of diligence.

For most of the weekend, the moon is in a lovely place in the fixed earth sign of Taurus, where it is exalted. There is a buildup to the Full Moon in Gemini, which occurs on November 27, 2023 at 4:16 am EST at 4 degrees and 51 minutes of the mutable air sign of Gemini.

I cast the Full moon chart to Washington DC, and it has Scorpio rising at the very first degree, and both Mars and Pluto rule the chart. Mars is now in Sagittarius and clashing with Saturn, which holds it back from adventure.

Mars is still on top of the Sun; Saturn is the at the bottom of the chart an in a sign that lacks security but in a sector that craves it. Saturn forms a a challenging T Square, which involves Mars and the Sun in Sagittarius, who are fighting for freedom, joy, and truth; moon in Gemini, which needs to talk.

They are all struggling with Saturn, which tries to curb their enthusiasm. Try to think of it as bringing an attempt at structure, in which so many planets are currently mutable and floating around that in a way that could feel very scattered and unfocused.

The positive part of the Saturn square is that it could wake you up to the fact that you need to take more micro steps in order to your goals accomplished and get you in motion. Venus, the planet of love, value, and money, is at 21 degrees and 2 minutes of the Cardinal air sign of Libra, which is exactly the degree where the Solar Eclipse occurred on October 14, 2023. Focus on love and beauty. Focus on what gives you happiness, and how you can bring kindness to others.

This is an excellent time to try to harness your imagination and meditate to release the fears that keep you from achieving your dreams. Burn some palo santo, sage, or incense. Write your fear on a piece of paper and carefully burn it in a safe place and let those fears burn up in Sagittarius time. Since Mars is close, be extra careful. Saturn is the reality planet, and it is challenging your dreams and visions. Yet, Neptune, which is the modern ruler of Pisces, is currently transiting at the late degrees of Pisces, where it is in its rulership. Neptune in Pisces creates the dream.

Neptune forms a close hit to Mercury, planet of thoughts and perspective, in the Full Moon chart. Full Moons are a time of completion, and they can also uncover information — particularly in the chatty sign of Gemini. A Full Moon sheds a light on a situation.

Mercury squaring Neptune helps you to tap into that dream in a big way. Please remember this lesson that Saturn in Pisces needs you to get this next few years. It may not be tenth Grade Literature, but “suspension of disbelief,” will be key to get you through the Saturn in Pisces/Pluto in Aquarius era. Keep dreaming, expect the unexpected, and go ask Alice when she’s ten feet tall.
