Happy Birthday Sagittarius the Archer!
November 22~December 21
Key Phrase for Sagittarius is "I SEEK"
“Faster than a speeding bullet, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, able to bend steel in his bare hands! Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s SAGITTARIUS!” Well, he might as well be! Have you ever known a Sagittarian who didn’t fly? “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” is their credo and where you find Sagittarius.
Sagittarians are often known as the bachelors of the zodiac (along with Libra~!) and make no doubt about it…these guys are smooth and charming. In fact, you might say charm is their middle name, their first name…and their last name too…only thing is by the time you get to figuring out exactly what their last name is, they are GONE. Poof! Jupiter wants to scale mountains, run marathons, and fully develop every bit of potential. Sometimes this means going beyond the limits which is why many Jupiter-born folks believe they're “off limits” or untouchable. Often an urge to align with a greater vision; they possess a unique method of rationalizing and justifying. Sometimes known to have foot-in-mouth-disease; Meaning...Open wide and stick foot in as far as it can go! If you want the truth, nothing but the truth so help you G -d, ask a Sagittarian. They'll blurt it out willingly, with an impish smile, then "perhaps" an apology, if you’re that fortunate. Honesty is an admirable quality and they may be brutally upfront, always knowing exactly where you stand when in their company.
“My stupid mouth, has got me in trouble,
I said too much again,
To a date over dinner yesterday,
And I could see she was offended
She said “well anyway….”
Just dying for a subject change.
Oh, another social casualty
Score one more for me
How could I forget?
Mama said, “think before speaking”
No filter in my head
Oh, what’s a boy to do…..”
~John Mayer~Room for Squares~My Stupid Mouth
Jupiter, Sag’s ruling planet, has a cycle of approximately 12 years. The planet Jupiter is our largest planet and is known to have quite a few Moons! In fact, we aren’t even sure how many Moons (women) Jupiter has because new ones are surfacing and being discovered all the time. That Jupiter was discovered to have so many more moons shouldn’t surprise us because it is the planet of “abundance”. He was also known as a womanizer in mythology. Juno, Jupiter’s wife, was acutely aware his many Moons,
According to Ariel Guttman and Kenneth Johnson’s Mythic Astrology, correlations between Chiron, Jupiter and Sagittarius are apparent. It was known that Jupiter spent most of his time pursuing his many love interests. The question of faithfulness always surfaces when discussing the sign of Sagittarius because Sagittarians are always searching or wanting the next adventure, particularly if it is outdoors. They are usually committed to their current partner and that isn’t usually the issue. “But how LONG they can sustain themselves in that commitment is another question. “Til Death do us part” is not a credo that Sagittarians hold dear (unless the chart contains strong Juno or Cancer symbolism)..and when pushed against the wall to say those words they usually tremble”.
Sagittarius’ polar opposite (9th house~higher educations, beliefs, philosophies, legal matters, publishing and teaching) is the mutable, air sign Gemini (3rd house~thoughts, communication, perception, siblings, early education including teachers, short distance travel and automobiles). The integration and forming of philosophies and beliefs are some areas of life for Sagittarius, also contingent upon other areas of the birth chart. When under stress each sign operates through the most negative characteristics of their polar opposite, the sign 180 degrees opposite itself. In this case, when under stress, Sagittarius may appear just like mutable, airy Gemini, ruled by Mercury and becomes scattered, fickle, and non-committal.
During Jupiter transits or if Jupiter is significantly placed in the natal, you may experience benefit, fortune, or excess. For instance, my Jupiter in Libra is located in the 11th house of friends, associations, counseling, and hopes and wishes. This is an area of my life where I feel most “fortunate” since I’ve always had the most wonderful friends and have been fortunate in the ability to utilize Astrology in guiding others. In the sign of Libra, equality in a partnership is a priority.
