On Nov. 22, the sun moved into Sagittarius, marking the beginning of an adventurous and ambitious archer season for us all. For four weeks, we'll be under the curious and open-minded spell of the archer. While the holidays linger behind and wait ahead of us in this in-between time, we'll want to lean into our vacation days and scatter into the holiday excitement, but the influence of Sagittarius might have other plans for us. To combat the push and pull that we can all expect to experience, I've put together a list of mediations for Sagittarius season. Because, if you take the time to center yourself and focus your desires, you can reach your target with ease.
Bustle talked to astrologer Linda Furiate about what we have to look forward to in Sag season as a whole, and she assures that it's not going to be all ambition and no time off — actually, we'll all be just as inspired to get ahead as we will to seek out good times. "Sagittarius season is actually meant to be fun and exciting. This is the time of year that we may feel inspired to explore beyond the boundaries of our everyday world," Furiate says, giving us hope that we won't be driven only in the work place, we will be driven to have exciting extracurricular experiences too. That said, Furiate also warns "while the Sun is in the sign of Sagittarius it may be our desire to be over zealous and to fill our lives with boundless knowledge and experiences that will keep the flames of life burning. All of this may lead to mental or physical exhaustion."
One thing we can count on the Sagittarius influence for is an enhanced ability to aim and achieve, but without some self discipline and mediation, it's likely we'll aim too broad and attempt to achieve too wide. According to Eva Giorgi, a healer and spiritualist, "setting your sights and hitting your mark" is of upmost importance this Sag season. It's easy to get distracted from the hubbub oh holiday cheer and madness, but you'll want to be as organized and specific as possible as you head into Capricorn season, so mediation is a total necessity and can be the difference between getting ahead this winter, and getting overwhelmed and disoriented. Here's how to stay focused while hitting all of your marks this Sag season:
