Congratulations to us all for making it through Scorpio season! It’s been a tough energy to navigate and realistically, even Scorpio’s are happy to have the season come to a close.
This past year has been a very intense Scorpio energy kind of year. We have had Jupiter the planet of expansion in Scorpio since October of 2017, now nicely settled into its home of comfort in Sagittarius for the next year. Venus was retrograde in Scorpio since the beginning of October for this year, unveiling all kinds of deep intense emotions surrounding love, values and relationships, and over the course of this past year there’s been at least one planet sitting in the energy of Scorpio causing deep, probing quests into ourselves, others we surround ourselves with, and of course all of the partnerships we find ourself partaking in. Venus is now direct and in Libra, which gives us a much lighter energy to work with. Even with Mercury being in retrograde in Sagittarius, it’s not going to slow down the eagerness to have more fun and lift the spirits after one hell of a journey through the dark, intense energy of Scorpio season.
Sagittarius is a fire sign that is so optimistic and cheerful that there’s essentially no way to sit in the depths of emotion in Scorpio any longer. When the sun moves into Sagittarius the mood is light, cheery, and ready to explore new areas of the world. This happy-go-lucky sign is far more flexible, creative and expressive than the other fire signs, and far more light-hearted than the stubborn, emotional sign of Scorpio.
If you look at Scorpio season as the unearthing time, the time where our deepest and darkest truths, feelings and desires were forced to the surface, than Sagittarius season is the light at the end of what has been a very dark tunnel. Sagittarius is known as the philosopher, wanting to learn all there is to know about the world and topics of interest. It’s a inquisitive energy, curious about what we should do with the information we received during Scorpio season and how to implement it in our lives to make us better, especially as we look towards the future and what life has in store for us.
Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter who is at its most comfortable and of course most powerful when it’s in its ruling house of comfort. Jupiter makes Sagittarius’s thirst for knowledge, exploration and travel even greater as Jupiter is all about expansion and growth. Be forewarned though, because we are in a Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius, we may not be receiving new information correctly as we aren’t super clear on how we usually process information. Travel plans usually get disrupted in a Mercury Retrograde leading to obstacles, delays and down right shitty circumstances that may pose a few problems with Sagittarius urging you to travel. Take caution and be aware that there’s a huge potential for plans made at this time to backfire in your face totally. Having “Plan B” in mind may offer you a quick and easy solution if your plans go awry.
The Sun moving into Sagittarius will infuse us with an upbeat energy and make you feel a bit more open-minded than usual. Because Mercury Retrograde is also in Sag at the moment, you can expect a bit more bluntness and in-your-face attitude than normal. Again, keep in mind that our communication skills aren’t what they usual are. Think of having a blurry layer of chaos blanketing all your conversations making it damn near impossible to be understood the way you intend. There is a tendency for all of us to overstep on other peoples boundaries as they can push your boundaries as well. You may notice that you get cut off in conversation having others speak over you, and of course the frustration levels are higher and trigger points are more sensitive to prompt a fiery reaction. Watch your words as there is a higher potential to come across harsher than you would like, leading to hurt feeling and defensive communications among your family, friends and co-workers. To understand the energy while in retrograde, definitely check out Mercury Retrograde in Sag if you haven’t already.
Regardless of the potential for miscommunications to happen, Sagittarius season will be the light-hearted energy we need coming out of Scorpio season. It will be a time when you are finally feeling a bit more stable, and even more cheerful than usual. It’s not just the holiday season adding to your playfulness and bubbly energy, Sagittarius season will infuse you with enough optimism to take you straight through to 2019. Take advantage of this energy and really push yourself to live a little. Explore areas of yourself within that you long to absorb more knowledge on, push yourself to travel outside of your comfort zone, and encourage yourself to think about all you’ve learned this year and how you can use it to create a better future.
Of course if you need assistance navigating these shifts and changes in energies, please book a session online and I’d be happy to help!
Many blessings to you during these times!
