As the Sun emerges from the turbulent waters of Scorpio, we step into the fires of Sagittarius. Like the Egyptian Sun-god Ra, who battles demons as his solar boat traverses the Underworld and who emerges triumphant every morning at sunrise, a new day is dawning for us.
The lessons that haunted us in Scorpio must now be forged in the fires of Sagittarius into arrows that lead us to our future. New knowledge needs new perspectives. The knowledge Scorpio bestows on us reaches deep; if we’ve plumbed our own depths and acknowledged our real, secret feelings, we’ve begun to see a new truth about our lives. What have you learned about yourself in the past month? How many people have you alienated by your projections? How many people have you decided to trust? Have you been humbled by the truth about yourself?
If we can’t see ourselves clearly, the good and the bad, we’ve missed the Scorpio lesson. Sagittarius is the flight of the phoenix that arises from the ashes of death in Scorpio. Soaring so high, it sees life from a higher, objective viewpoint. Renewed, our feeling life is inspired by Sagittarius’ fire to send our passion out into the world in a strong, focused way. Sagittarius is considered the sign of the seeker and the philosopher as well as of Cosmic Law.
Sagittarius focuses us on the important questions in life: Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I going? It also gives us a sense of wonder and joy as we contemplate some force greater than ourselves that calls to us. Sagittarius is the sign of the quest, the quest for life’s meaning. That search for truth—cosmic truth — needs something from each of us.
We seem to be born with an urge to understand Life and our place in it. To seek the answers to life’s riddles, we need faith and a deep belief in our own values and principles. We have to aim our arrows and let fly. Belief is what powers them.
