November 22 – December 21, 2023 (ET)
A Ray of Optimism
Like a lantern in an underground cavern, Sagittarius brings light and levity to the complex emotional entanglements of Scorpio. A wizard at finding meaning, Sagittarius uses wisdom and wit to illuminate the darkness. During this Sagittarius season, take responsibility for carrying a ray of optimism for the purpose of uplifting others.
As a mutable fire sign, Sagittarius can be thought of as a spark that escapes the bonfire and spreads its conflagration to a new locale. Part preacher part prankster, it moves from place to place to expand perspectives through story or humor. While Sagittarius can easily slide into self-righteous opinion, its uppermost aspiration is to provide uplifting insight. Take this to heart and make it your mission to liberate humor and provoke full-blown contagious laughter. As well as simply having fun, your efforts help others release stress which improves their health. Seek out comedy, play games, and connect with others through the ridiculous.
Sagittarius Season Overall & Horoscopes
As mentioned, Sagittarius season encourages you to access your sense of humor and help others lighten their load. However, the season begins with a stress test, as both the Sun and Mars immediately square Saturn. Despite wanting to join the party, something heavy holds you back. With so many extremely difficult realities pulling on us, this is not surprising. Acknowledge hard feelings while also recognizing the positive. Burn off extra energy and put comic relief on the agenda over the next few days, which includes Thanksgiving in the U.S.
The Gemini Full Moon on November 27 suggests an opportunity to exchange ideas with others, though don’t expect intellectual clarity. Instead appreciate the softer edges and engage with others through art and small acts of compassion. At the end of November and into the first week of December, you may experience a recurrence of some relationship or financial issue from earlier in the autumn. Some closure might be possible. Enjoy any feelings of stability and positivity that arise.
The Sagittarius New Moon and Mercury retrograde on December 12 – 13 invite you to contemplate what perspective shift you want to make. The last week of Sagittarius season plays out like a disjointed game of hopscotch, where you must leap but can’t quite see the landing. Forward movement feels like a combination of smooth strides and graceless lurches. Something or someone unexpected arrives at the season’s end. Keep compassion close to help you stay grounded. Read below using your Rising (and/or Sun) sign to assess where you naturally bring optimism to the forefront and how you can lean into it.
