Welcome to Sagittarius time! The Sun leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius on Saturday, November 22, at 3:39 a.m. CST (9:39 a.m. GMT). It will remain there until December 21 (or December 22, depending on your time zone).
No matter what your sign, you have Sagittarius somewhere in your astrological birth chart, so you’re affected by this change. Also, by “following the Sun”—that is, by paying attention to where the Sun is each month and aligning yourself with the current sign’s energies—you automatically put yourself in perfect harmony with the season, the stars, and your inner self.
Double Dose of Sagittarius: Moon Meets Sun Nov. 22
As the zodiac’s most optimistic sign, thanks to its big and jolly ruler, Jupiter, Sagittarius typically loves what’s big and showy and meaningful. This year, all those traits come into play right at the start of this sign: not only does the Sun barge in to fiery Sagittarius tomorrow, but the Moon rolls into the sign of the Archer on November 22 as well. In fact, the Moon will line up exactly with the Sun at 6:33 a.m. CST (12:33 p.m. GMT), giving us a new Moon in Sagittarius and a powerful double dose of this sign’s energies. That makes this weekend an excellent time to set new intentions related to all things Sagittarian.
Get Ready for Fun and Adventure
With so much Sagittarius energy available, we’re all likely to feel the call to adventure and a desire to be on the go and out having fun. With the winter holidays on the horizon, this is a good time to enjoy friends, parties, and new experiences. It’s also a great time to feel your inner optimism grow and your spirit of generosity expand.
By next month, though, you may feel your energies start to slow down. Sagittarius’s ruler, Jupiter, will go retrograde on December 8 (meaning it will appear to be moving backwards in the sky, as seen from Earth). This suggests our best course is to enjoy outward activities early in the month of Sagittarius (so finish your shopping early!) so we’re ready to slow down a bit after the first week of December.
Go Within to Seek Higher Meaning
As of December 8, set aside time to be at home so you can be alone with your thoughts. Despite the rush of the upcoming holidays, take time for prayer and meditation. Sagittarius is the great philosopher of the zodiac, inviting us to contemplate the meaning of life, our place in the world, and the wisdom we have gained over the past year.
