The Sun entered Sagittarius Nov 22nd.After a transformative time in Scorpio where we´ve probably gotten in contact with our more hidden parts we can now begin focusing our energy outwards. The energy is lighter and expansive. These are also times of intensive celebration, socialization and preparation- for Christmas in some parts of the world.
The signs of the zodiac is actually exactly like a calendar that follows the natural cycles of life on earth and the ever changing cycle of light and darkness.
We can clearly see that the suns progression through the 12 signs mirrors what is happening on earth and how we arrange things. The Suns travel through the signs is also a procedure where we are students, of life.
During Scorpio (23/10- 22/11) times we took a journey inwards, probably met some monsters and dusty creatures that we haven´t given any attention to in a while, but maybe also found some treasures of gold that we had forgotten about – treasures of the inside that are easily forgotten in a world that most of the time focuses the energy outwards.
Hopefully we´ve also let go of some old fears now.
With a higher consciousness we can now spread our newfound light. After survival of transformation often optimism and enthusiasm follows. Two words that are descriptive of Sagittarius. Now when we´ve survived we can afford to have faith in the future, canalizing energy in to beliefs and expansion of consciousness. We want to show the world what we´ve learned through our travel inwards in Scorpio! Sagittarius people are often found in occupations that are connected to higher learning, philosophy and beliefs, all kind of teachers and also preachers.
Also the travel industry is connected to Sag, everything that involves expansion of mind and physical movement and expansion.
So why this shift from transformation in Scorpio to expansion of consciousness? Well, what are we people without our beliefs and faith in the future…life would be meaningless without anything “higher” to believe in. Now days many people live in secularized societies but still people light candles, and goes to church in the big holidays of December. Maybe not to pray, but to at least be reminded that there might be something bigger that surrounds us. This can give us hope in the darkness, both the physical darkness of the season and the spiritual darkness that unfortunately also exists in the world today. Sagittarius teaches us that hope is essential for survival.
Sagittarius sign is known as the centaur, a half man half horse creature, this represents that the sign has succeeded on integrating the earthly and the divine, the mortal and the immortal. This is where the higher consciousness rises. With the bow it aims for the ultimate truth. For Sag life is a journey searching for the truth, and probably Sag also says that it´s the journey of finding truth that is the whole point…and fun :) not so much to hit the target.
