When the Sun joins Mars in Sagittarius on Friday, many of us will heave a collective sigh of relief to be leaving the angst and intensity of Scorpio behind for another cycle.
Don’t get me wrong, I am quite comfortable with Scorpio, but there is something about this particular shift in energy that says it is time to lighten up and enjoy life a little more. It could have something to do with my first-house Venus in Sagittarius, who always sparkles this time of year. Or maybe it’s because one of my favorite U.S. holidays is coming up here, Thanksgiving, which happens to be the Sagittarius holiday (Christmas falls under the aegis of Capricorn). The first Thanksgiving was celebrated by a mix of peoples from the Old World and the New coming together to share food, friendship, and an all-around good time, in true Sagittarius fashion.
Pat and I have Sagittarius Rising in our composite chart, and I’ve noticed that many of our readers have the Sun or Ascendant in the sign of the Archer. We’d love to know how you experience your Sagittarius side. Anyone else with planets and chart angles in Sag, please chime in!
