This year, the kickoff of Sagittarius season should feel like a warm hug as the weather gets colder and as we shake off the complexities and turbulence of Mercury’s last retrograde of the year and we move out of emotional and transformative Scorpio season. Scorpio was able to expose us to ourselves and hopefully resembled a shedding of the snake skin for many of us, while Mercury in retrograde put a strong emphasis on us being extra mindful of our communication and our thought processes. With all of that coming to an end, we can celebrate the final weeks of 2019 with the energetic and compassionate energy that Sagittarius will bring throughout the holiday season.
On November 22nd, the sun will enter Sagittarius. Sagittarius is ruled by the planet Jupiter, which signifies luck and expansion, and is best described as dynamic, philosophical, jovial, and warm hearted. With Mercury stationing direct a mere two days prior, we will be in the shadow period for a little while, which can still manifest into minor communication issues and such, but it will be a breath of fresh air as we enter an entirely new season.
On November 26th, we will have a new moon in Sagittarius as well. New moons are a time for a fresh start- a time for us to look deeply within and set intentions that we would like to see manifest in the coming weeks before the full moon. The new moon in Sagittarius gives us the opportunity to be optimistic in what we would like to receive. It’s asking us the tough questions that we owe to ourselves to answer – “is the path we are on serving our highest selves?,” “what can we do to steer our ship in the direction that is most beneficial for our growth?,” and “is what we are desiring aligned with our true goals and purpose?” The last full moon of the year will come on December 11th in equally dynamic Gemini. This will present us with the perfect time & energy to tie up any projects or goals for the year, as well as give us that final burst of motivation to see our new moon intentions come to fruition.
Jupiter will be moving out of its home placement of Sagittarius on December 2nd and into the disciplined and practical sign of Capricorn, and will remain there until the end of 2020. Jupiter gives us the benefit of expanding anything it touches, therefore this upcoming year will allow us the space to pursue our deepest truest desires with a sense of strategy and clarity. It will give us that extra burst of motivation to really get the ball rolling on anything we may have come to realize in 2019. On December 9th, we will also see Mercury enter Sagittarius, giving us the ability to speak our truth with a sense of lightness and optimism. At the end of this season on the 19th, we will also see Venus enter airy Aquarius, allowing us to feel a sense of healthy personal independence in our relationships.
Although all of this is happening during a time of being surrounded by loved ones and celebrating the holidays and the year that has passed, it will actually be a great time for us to really focus on our deepest selves and how we can elevate our lives.The optimism that we will be feeling will allow us a fresh sense of freedom to be honest with ourselves about how we want to move forward into this exciting new year. Sagittarius will show us our deepest and truest desires for ourselves and prepare us for how we can execute it when Capricorn season arrives at the end of December. But until then, enjoy the season of joy and light heartedness while we are met with the opportunities to be with loved ones, or even just the opportunity to love a little extra on ourselves. It’s been a very productive year and we deserve the last few weeks to celebrate in our light.
