Sagittarius (November 22nd to December 21st)
Have you ever given much thought to why you’re symbolized by a centaur shooting an arrow into the heavens? It’s a beautiful poetic image, of course, but there’s also something else happening that’s far more poignant for now too. The tip of the arrow belongs to the earth, like flint, but you can imagine the tip on fire. Sagittarius aims to shoot the fire of the earth back into the sky where it belongs and join the flames of the night we call stars. To the practical mind this sounds useless, even ridiculous. But you know the true power behind this imagery. Between last week’s solar eclipse and this week’s retrograde of your patron, Jupiter, it’s time to transform the dregs of the earth with your enthusiasm and your energy. So get ready to launch, because you have light you want to send soaring!
