On November 21/22, the Sun moves out of watery Scorpio into the fire sign of Sagittarius.
During Scorpio season we are called by the Universe to dive into our shadows and make peace with some of our darker and deeper emotions. During Scorpio Season, we may feel ourselves turning inward, and retreating from the world around us.
As the Sun shifts into Sagittarius Season however, we are able to return to the light once more. That hard, but very necessary journey of moving through the shadows slowly comes to an end, and we can find ourselves seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
As we emerge from this phase, we may feel renewed, excited, and curious about what is to come. Under the Sagittarius Sun, life feels expansive, and we feel drawn to learn, explore, and make the most of wherever we have landed.
Sagittarius Season is our point in the year to learn, to grow, to teach, and to find our inspiration. It carries an energy that helps us to find adventure, to find lightness, and to make the most of the rest of the year.
How do you want to spend the rest of the year? When you look back on 2021, how do you want to feel about it?
We can’t change the past, we can’t go back in time, but as we reach the end of 2021, we are reminded that we still have the chance to fill it with things that ignite our soul.
Sagittarius is represented by the Centaur aiming its arrow high into the starry sky. If we look at where his arrow is pointed, we find the star Antares, which is known as the heart of the Scorpion.
The heart of the Scorpion is a deep and magical place. It is where we are reminded of what really matters, what really counts, and what fills our hearts.
These are all things we can pursue or explore when the Sun is in Sagittarius.
Make it a point this season to fill your days with things that excite your spirit and ignite the fiery flame of your heart.
In 2021, Sagittarius Season brings the final Eclipse for the year, Venus Retrograde, and more! See the key dates below-
Sagittarius Season Astrology
November 21/22- Sagittarius Season Begins
The Sun enters into Sagittarius on November 21/22 (depending on your timezone.) As the Sun shifts from watery Scorpio into fiery Sagittarius, we may feel more expressive, adventurous, and curious. We may seek new information or a new understanding, or find ourselves wanting to share our story with others. Sagittarius is the sign of the teacher and the student, so perhaps we will find ourselves taking on these roles during the season.
November 23/24- Moon Wobble
The Moon Wobble occurs at that pivotal point between Eclipses. This is a time where we may feel a little “wobbly” or off-balance in some way. We may find ourselves questioning ways of the past, or dealing with our past. Moon Wobbles can bring sudden change or pivotal events. It is best to let the dust settle for a few days, especially if you are feeling indecisive. Moon Wobbles are also power times for manifestation work. They are also linked to strong weather patterns and can bring big releases in energy for Mother Earth.
November 28- Sun Conjunct Mercury
Mercury aligns with the Sun, indicating a new cycle of Mercury energy has begun. In astrology, this is referred to as a superior conjunction. Mercury’s energy is renewed and we may feel our own mental processes renewed in turn. We may be thinking clearly, seeing things in a new light, or finding inspiring ways to look at things.
November 29/30- Vesta Conjunct the Sun
The Goddess Asteroid, Vesta aligns with the Sun activating its energy. Vesta is the Goddess of Hearth and Fire. Her astrological symbol is that of a flame, representing our own inner flame of independence. She also represents sexual liberation and ignites our freedom to express our sexuality. Vesta’s energy is very connected to both Virgo and Scorpio. As her energy is strong at this time, we can use it to embrace our own sexuality, find our independence, and connect to our own sense of personal knowing. Let your inner flame shine bright!
November 30- Venus Sextile Neptune
November has carried energies that have supported heart healings, heart activations, and heart awakenings. The month ends with a beautiful and harmonious alignment between Venus, the planet of love, and Neptune, the planet of higher, spiritual, unconditional love. This is gentle energy to use to soothe your heart, practice self-care, and to cherish your loved ones.
December 1- Neptune Direct
Neptune stations direct after being retrograde since June 25. We have some strong forward moving energy in the cosmic skies at the moment! We will perhaps feel this momentum building as the weeks continue. Neptune stationing direct may bring intuitive insights, creative bursts, and may even lift the veil on something that has been feeling cloudy in our lives. You can read more on this here.
December 3- New Moon Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius
The main event of Sagittarius Season is this dazzling Solar Eclipse! This is also the last Eclipse in the Gemini-Sagittarius cycle that we have been working with since June 2020, so this Eclipse is likely to bring the rewards of our hard work. Eclipses are accelerators and help us to take a leap into a new state of consciousness, but under the energy of this Eclipse we will now find ourselves standing on solid ground.
December 11- Venus Conjunct Pluto
Venus and Pluto will remain together in our cosmic skies for a longer period than normal due to the upcoming Venus Retrograde. This combination of energy can stir power struggles in our relationships or when it comes to money. If you are feeling held back or stifled by someone or something, this energy may also come to a head, beckoning you to take action. This energy can also help to transform relationships in our lives, allowing us to step into a new power. While the energy peaks on this day, this is something we can tune and connect with all through December.
December 18- Gemini Full Moon + Sun on Galactic Center
What a beautiful Full Moon to end the year! This Full Moon falls exactly opposite the Galactic Center, bringing a strong energetic force to this Full Moon. The Galactic Center energies will bring expansion, helping us to feel in and connect with the incredible galaxies that live within us and all around us. We may even feel more connected to our starseed origns, or find it easier to connect with Galactic beings. Jupiter is beautifully aligned to this Full Moon, offering expansive, abundant energies. We may find ourselves thinking differently or seeing things from a new perspective. New information and insights may be revealed under this Full Moon, but it is important to follow our intuition.
December 19- Venus Retrograde
Venus enters retrograde in Capricorn where it will remain until January 29, 2022. Venus Retrograde is a time where matters of the heart can rise to the surface. Think of it as a transition point that we have to move through in order to peel back a deeper layer of our heart center. It can also shine a spotlight on our relationships and challenge us to take action from a place aligned with a greater and higher love. If a relationship has served its time, Venus Retrograde often brings matters to a head. Money matters can also be stirred under this energy, triggering our self-worth and the value we place on certain things in our lives. Whatever transpires over the course of this retrograde, keep in mind that it often takes until Venus goes direct again for us to really understand the higher lessons.
December 20- Day Before the Solstice
The day before the December Solstice, it is believed that the energy grid of the planet comes into harmonious alignment. This alignment of the energy grid increases the healing potential of nature and of our own bodies. We can tap into this healing power by spending time in nature, partaking in meditative practices, working with crystals or plant/herbal medicine, or by simply setting an intention. You can also try a Solstice Ritual.
