Sagittarius Season: November 22nd to December 20th
Symbol: The Archer
Planetary Ruler: Jupiter
Welcome back to Sagittarius season. It is a time of year marked by busy holiday get-togethers and reflections on what we have and sometimes what we are missing. Whether this season brings you joy or apprehension, remember to lead with kindness and compassion for yourself and others. Bring that Sagittarian optimism out and send out invites to people who need connection.
This is also a great time of year to go out and do all the things, whether that means the stereotypical Sagittarius standing on a mountain vibe or just getting out of your house and socializing. Harness that restlessness into some fun!
But remember not to go overboard shopping for presents or partying this season. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, which likes to go big or go home. Find the right balance for you.

Important Dates during Sagittarius Season
November 27th Full Moon in Gemini
This moon brings opportunities to break down walls that have been in your way. Get clear on what you need in your life and make a plan to create it. Sometimes, we need some friction to get us in motion, which is this full moon’s energy.
Dec 12th New Moon in Sagittarius
This new moon in Sagittarius brings the regenerative powers of fire. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, you have the chance to shed your pain and become a new version of yourself. One that is wiser and ready for whatever is next.
Dec 13th Mercury Retrograde begins (ends January 1st)
Mercury retrograde begins less than 24 hours after the new moon in Sagittarius. This retrograde starts in Capricorn and ends in Sagittarius. At the beginning, we contemplate the “how?” and by the end, we consider the “why?”. How will we get the answers we need, but more importantly, are they even the right questions? That’s for you to decide.
Once Mercury slides back into Sagittarius, during Capricorn season, remember to keep the tone of your communication in check. Sagittarius can have a biting “tell it like it is” quality at times that can get you in trouble.
Don’t forget the standard good hygiene for Mercury retrogrades. Slow down and pay attention. Mercury is the planet that rules communication, travel, and our mind and how we process. You may encounter technical glitches or feel mentally bogged down during these periods. Double-check your messages before sending, allow extra trip time, and grant yourself additional mental space.
