Sun in Sagittarius
Today the Sun went into Sagittarius. Whew! Now that we're out of Scorpio - and after that most beautiful Taurus/Scorpio Full Moon the other night - we're done obsessing, releasing and transforming (hopefully!). Now we get to attune ourselves to the higher laws of our planet and cosmos. Sun in Sagittarius is much more fun, as you'll know if you have any Sag friends. So lift up you Spirit to the skies! I always love the early evening skies at this time of year. It is usually a beautiful sapphire blue and of course, with the approach of the holidays at Winter Solstice, even though the days are getting shorter and the darkness is growing, there is a peaceful feeling in the air.
For those of you who have planets in the early degrees of the mutual signs - Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces - you will want to shine some light on those aspects of your psyche. For example, I have my Mercury at 4* Gemini, which will be receiving a square from the Sag Sun in a few days. As the square builds to exact, I might feel pressured to write more about my beliefs or at least talk about my truth.
Sagittarius is the sign where we unite our animal nature with Spirit - the horse man or centaur. While many centaurs were quite wild (as they are, for the most part, in Harry Potter's world) the centaur Chiron was a great healer, astrologer, and respected oracle, who taught many culture heroes: Asclepius (great healer and doctor), Ajax (warrior), Hercules (hero), Aeneas (Trojan founder of Rome), Actaeon (the hunter who Artemis changed into a stag), Theseus (who killed the Minotaur), Achilles (warrior), and Jason (who led the Argonauts to find the Golden Fleece).
So let the energy of Sagittarius and the wise centaur help you become a culture hero or heroine as well.
