Sun in Sagittarius
Fiery Sagittarius is the sign of the Righteous Warrior. This native finds their purpose in passionate dedication to a cause. These individuals are independent, expansive, and enthusiastic. They love travel and exploring other cultures – what better way to understand their own! When comfortable in their skin, these individuals are warm and inviting, like a roaring fire on a cold winter night.
In Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Sagittarius is allied with the lion-headed goddess Sekhmet. In traditional myth, Sekhmet was the much-feared goddess of the desert, bringer of drought, famine, and pestilence. This archetypal energy is the yang feminine, an agent of change who destroys so something new can be created. Her keywords are Fierce Compassion. In Sekhmet we find the fierceness of the mother lion who loves her cubs wholeheartedly and protects them from all threats. Those with Sagittarius strong in their charts will fight passionately for something or someone they love.
Everything has its shadow. The unseen side of Sagittarius expresses as polarization around the question of truth. Who determines what is right and true? When Sagittarius is unable to consider the truth of another, it is easy to descend into zealotry. “I am right and you are wrong; therefore, you are my enemy.” Sagittarius rules philosophical ideals, including religion, and many wars have been fought over the belief that one side holds the truth while the other is wrong. Care must be taken that the vibrant passion that comes naturally to the Sagittarian individual does not override the ability to perceive a bigger truth.
The Sun will be in the emanation of Sagittarius/Sekhmet from November 22 to December 21, 2022.
