The Sun is about to begin its journey through the sign of Sagittarius, the ninth sign of the zodiac. The symbol of Sagittarius is the Centaur, half man and half horse. It is the stage where the soul and human consciousness strive to overcome animalistic impulses, transforming them into more noble qualities. The bow and arrow is another symbol for Sagittarius, who is also a warrior. As with the warrior Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita, the recognition of duty and Dharma takes place under the sign of Sagittarius and the ninth house. Under the influence of Sagittarius, one may feel driven towards a specific purpose, dissatisfied with material achievements, inspired to travel or pursue religious/spiritual paths, and feel restless.
Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign ruled by Jupiter. Ascendant in Sagittarius indicates one who is naturally athletic or physically robust and strong, especially in the hips, thighs, and legs. Sagittarians also tend to do a lot of activities, love to travel, and/or often change what they do/are wanderers. Sun in Sagittarius indicates one whose soul is delving into self-discovery, as the understanding of the individual consciousness and universal consciousness begin to merge into One. As a mutable sign, spiritual transformation and change occur differently and on different levels for each individual. Moon in Sagittarius indicates one who may have difficulty making choices, as their feelings about things can shift easily. Sagittarian Moons also are people of ideas, lots of ideas, but can have difficulty bringing them to fruition. Depending on the placement of the ruler and aspects in one’s birth chart, as the ninth sign of the zodiac ruled by Jupiter, Sagittarius is usually a very auspicious sign.
