SUN IN SAGITTARIUS + UPCOMING ECLIPSES
I think almost everyone is happy to see the Sun transiting in Sagittarius after a year of feeling like things haven’t been moving very fast. We are definitely gaining some momentum as the year comes to a close. Sagittarius is the visionary of the zodiac, and is able to say YES to what hasn’t happened yet. It’s often a sign associated with potentiality, and the opportunities that come from the ability to take risks. Chance resides here. You don’t know if you don’t try, and Sagittarius is willing to try.
Before the adoption of the word luck at the end of the Middle Ages, Old English expressed the notion of “good fortune” with the word speed. There’s something to be said for Sagittarius ability to jump on opportunities when they presents themselves. Sure, there’s elements of proper timing, but more extensively there is something about the readiness to seize luck in mid-flight, and be willing to change your trajectory at the last minute to create an opening. This talent for turning on a dime is not given to all the signs. This is why we associate Sagittarius with the Mutable modality. To a certain extent we create our luck with our ability to take a gamble, to have faith, to trust that it’s going to work out and to lay cynicism aside but also to ACT on a conviction. Throwing yourself into the unfamiliar while staying motivated even when you don’t know how things are going to turn out can be very very scary for some but it’s something Sagittarius usually excel at.
This year however, Sagittarius season is coloured by the Nodes of the Moon currently transiting in Gemini and Sagittarius, which basically means the eclipses will be occurring on this axis until December 2021. The North Node/Rahu or the Head of the Dragon is transiting in Gemini while the South Node/Ketu or the Tail of the Dragon is transiting in Sagittarius. The South Node is bringing its smoky influence to the archer and confusing its aims. Where do we shoot our arrows if the horizon is unclear? Where does luck resides while we cross this collective threshold into the Air period?
The Lunar Eclipse in Gemini on November 30th will most likely bring a lot of information noise. The overdose of anxiety-inducing news and data could be a very real thing as we spin on the Wheel of Fortune. The over-saturation of details, facts, and figures could render decision making difficult. The second eclipse coming will be a total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius on December 14th, and could challenge beliefs and what we assumed to be true in our personalized echo chambers.
