If the last few weeks have been an emotional rollercoaster for you, allow Sagittarius season to smooth things over with a more optimistic approach to managing your moods. Sagittarius season 2023 officially kicks off on Nov. 22, and with it, the archer’s signature lust for life. Expect pleasure and curiosity to take center stage for the next few weeks as Sagittarius season heartens your wanderlust and enables you to seek knowledge in everything you do.
Welcome to Sagittarius Season!
Arriving on Nov. 22 and lasting until Dec. 21, the sun will be percolating in Sagittarius. Sagittarius is a fire sign that’s fixated on all things fun and exciting—but ultimately, that which fuels our souls. Fire signs are full of life and eager to achieve what their hearts set out to do, and Sagittarius season is no different. It’s actually the time when we expand and grow, both spiritually and mentally. That said, this season requires you to open your mind to the different perspectives and experiences of others as a way to grow into your own.
In astrology, Sagittarius is represented by the archer. That could explain why they’re keen on aiming for high goals and reaching far places—especially when it comes to travel. They’re ruled by Jupiter, the planet of luck, abundance, and expansion. For that reason, Sagittarius is always yearning for more knowledge and understanding that will help move the needle forward when it comes to their growth. Jupiter also explains their ability to look on the bright side and why they can sustain optimism when it comes to their big dreams and goals.
Because they’re a mutable sign, Sagittarians are quick on their feet and can easily adapt to new and foreign places. Between their ruling planet and belonging to the mutable bunch, Sagittarius signs are also extremely independent (OK, they’re borderline noncommittal).
Although you can most definitely plan for lighthearted fun for the next few weeks, Sagittarius season also comes with its own set of cosmic surprises. To prepare, read on for the seasonal forecast for Sagittarius season 2023.
We’re straddling the line between seasons, with autumn not yet a distant memory while winter is slowly inching towards us. More of a reason to brave our end-of-year reflection and future goals with a sense of hopefulness. That’s especially the case with Mars joining the sun in Sagittarius on Nov. 24, boosting our energy to accomplish everything on our end-of-year checklist (there’s still enough time to start that book club, BTW!). Take advantage of your elevated confidence by finally taking the final push toward that solo trip you’ve been wanting to take.
The full moon in Gemini arrives on Nov. 27. This lunation fills our planners with social invitations and invites us to pick up a new skill. Ideas are flowing, so take the big and albeit, off-kilter ideas you may have under this moon seriously. Plus, you’ll want to stay extra passionate about the ideas and skills you conjure up right now when Venus enters Scorpio on Dec. 4. The next few weeks will be extra steamy especially when it comes to love and romance, so don’t be afraid to get intimate with your partner or, if you’re single, the idea of a commitment.
After a five-months-long retrograde, Neptune finally returns direct in Pisces on Dec. 6. This is likely felt on a larger scale, like our collective progressions when it comes to ideas and dreams. In other words, we could see a cultural shift from being technical such as the developments in AI, to a more emotional approach in society, like a mainstream discourse on how it impacts us as a community. But it’s also a reminder for us to examine our personal boundaries and reflect on who in our lives is abiding by them and those who are not so welcoming of them. The next step? Letting them go.
That’s where the new moon in Sagittarius comes in when it arrives on Dec. 12. Typically, new moons are about welcoming in new beginnings, planning, and goal-setting. But because the new moon arrives on the same day as Mercury retrograde in Capcricorn, this isn’t exactly a friendly time to start anew, but rather reflect and release. Think about your long-term goals and the relationships that are closest to you now—are they serving your best interest?
Mercury retrograde in Capricorn, arriving on Dec. 12, is a time when our careers, reputation, and practicality take center stage. Pitfalls and miscommunication are par for the course, but especially when it comes to work and our public persona. That said, double check the fine print and proofread your emails (and tweets!) before sending them out.
