On Thursday, November 21, 2013, at approximately 10:48PM, EST, the Sun entered Sagittarius.
Sagittarius is the Sign of Freedom, Gregariousness and Enthusiasm. People born under this Sun-Sign usually exude these characteristics.
Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the Planet of Mysticism, Expansion and Prosperity (for more on Jupiter, SEE my post “Powers of the Planets: Part V: Jupiter”).
Generally speaking, if your Sun-Sign is Sagittarius, this is what Astrologers refer to as your “High Solar Cycle.” I often describe this in more layperson terms that the Universe Is giving you a major boost of Energy to make your dreams and desires come to pass, more quickly and more powerfully. Also, given that in Magickal Traditions, Thursday is the Day of Jupiter, as a Sun-Sign Sagittarius, your “Power Day” is usually on a Thursday.
If you want to make a great and powerful change in your life, you may wish to do so on a Thursday. Of course, there may be other days of the week when your Energy is especially high, so you may wish to use the Energies of both days. For example, let us say that you are a Sun-Sign Sagittarius and you usually experience a heightened level of Energy on a Tuesday. For example, you may have an opportunity to begin a project on a Tuesday and complete it on a Thursday.
If your Sun-Sign is in another Fire Sign, such as Aries or Leo, and particularly if your Sub-Sign is Sagittarius (April 11 through April 19; and August 2 through August 12), then you may experience a burst of enthusiasm, or a more amped-up boost of positive Energy. You may also find that your Creativity is heightened.
If your Sun-Sign is Gemini, the Polar Opposite of Sagittarius, you are in what Astrologers refer to as the “Low Solar Cycle.” This is the time for you Geminis to get more rest and relaxation. Perhaps going to bed an hour or so earlier than you normally do, and you may need to temper your Creativity with other mundane concerns and tasks. For example, make sure bills are paid first, before you engage in ten hours of novel-writing.
If your Sun-Sign is in another Air Sign, specifically Libra or Aquarius (and particularly, those whose Sub-Sign is Gemini, such as Librans born between October 14 and October 22; and Aquarians born between January 30 and February 8), this may be a time when you feel a distinct Energy drain. If you need to get more rest, make sure you do. If you have some personal time or sick days, you may wish to use them sooner than later.
If you have a Planet in Sagittarius, you may see a boost in that Planet’s Energy in your life. For example, if your Moon-Sign is Sagittarius, you may feel yourself opening up to Higher Consciousness more easily and perhaps more unconsciously than you normally do. If you have Mars in Sagittarius, you may feel incredibly drawn to explore a mountain or travel to another country (or conquer one) during this Solar Transit.
Currently, the Sun is in Sagittarius. The Moon entered Capricorn at approximately 1:49AM, EST today, Wednesday, December 4, 2013. Also, Mercury is currently Transiting Direct in Scorpio, but shall enter Sagittarius tonight, at approximately 9:42PM, EST.
Now, with every Sun-Sign there are their Light sides and Shadow sides. My experience of Sagittarius (and Pisces, especially since for millennia, it was ruled by Jupiter, until Neptune was officially discovered in 1846), is that many of them have an addictive personality. I have met many Sun-Sign Sagittarians and Sun-Sign Pisceans that are either recovering addicts or running (non-recovery) addicts.
I recall having a date with a guy that needed to be canceled because he was drinking with clients. For the record, he canceled, it, but I digress.
Now, perhaps it is because my mother is an alcoholic (and yes, she is a Sagittarius; specifically a December Sagittarius) that I see no reason why a business person needs to drink a lot to entertain or be of professional service to clients.
Not only that, excessive alcohol consumption diminishes alertness, motor control, etc.
Also, I have met many Sagittarians and Pisceans that either have bi-polar disorder, or some other form of mental illness or dis-ease. Yes, there are other Sun-Signs that have these conditions, but I do not believe it is a coincidence that I meet more Fire Signs and Water Signs, especially Sagittarius and Pisces that have these conditions.
So, if your Sun-Sign is either Sagittarius or Pisces, I cannot over-recommend you be Mindful of what you consume, be it drugs, alcohol, foods, beverages, etc.
And, if you need to get help, please do yourselves and everyone that you love and adore a HUGE favor and get the help you need.
And, it is no coincidence how many people tend to drink more alcohol between November 21 and December 20, while the Sun is usually in Sagittarius.
This is a good example of how a Transiting Sun-Sign (or any other Transiting Planet, for that matter) affects us. Your Sun-Sign does not need to be in Sagittarius to experience the effects (empowering or disempowering, positive or negative, Light or Shadow) of that particular Astrological Transit.
And for the record, let us say that you are either a Sun-Sign Sagittarius or a Sun-Sign Pisces and you have no addictions to either alcohol or drugs.
First, according to Dictionary.com, the word addiction is defined as “the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming, as narcotics, to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma.”
In my life, I have met people who are addicted to pain, physical and/or emotional. Addicted to causing pain, physical and/or emotional. People that are addicted to having all kinds of hardships, physical, emotional, mental, financial, etc.
Are you one of those people, regardless of your Sun-Sign? If so, are you helping yourself?
Do you know people like this? If so, are you helping them?
So many people believe that they have to tolerate someone who is unkind, cruel, thoughtless, inconsiderate, and let me state for the record, NO! You are NOT obligated to tolerate someone who is unkind, cruel, thoughtless, inconsiderate.
You are NOT a doormat for anyone or anything.
The people who are like that are probably not reading my blog, but if they are, then I Re-Mind them that they can only get away with that kind of abusive behavior for only so long before the people who are in their lives want nothing more to do with them.
As for me, I AM a professional Lightworker, not a professional and licensed Psychotherapist. These blog posts are expressions of my own experiences and Intuited Messages about these Sun-Signs.
And it bears re-stating that for all my “Zodiakos” posts, I usually consult Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guides, (published by Llewellyn Worldwide, Woodbury, Minnesota) and/or The Only Astrology Book You’ll Ever Need, by Joanna Martine Woolfolk (the Copyright of the “Twenty-First Century Edition is 2012, Taylor Trade Publishing, an Imprint of Rowman and Littlefield, Boulder, Colorado).
Thank you, one and all, for honoring who I AM and what I do.
