The Sun leaves the sign of Scorpio and enters Sagittarius this weekend. When the Sun moves into the next sign, the change in energetics is noticeable. Scorpio is a water sign (emotions) and Sagittarius is a fire sign (action). Elementally, the transformation of our emotions over the past thirty days now flows into transformation of what we do in life and where we spend our energy.
Sagittarius is characterized by its love of the quest -- the search, and its love of the conquest -- the solution. At the lowest octave, Sagittarius energy is never satisfied and must prove. At the highest octave, Sagittarius energy sees that the true quest is the inner quest and that what is truly sought is not found in the external.
One of my favorite things about the archetypal energy of Sagittarius is that it "rules" (in astrology, everything is "ruled by" or "under the domain of" a specific planet; I recommend The Rulership Book by Rex Bills for reference, although astrology is an art as much as it is a math/science, so personal experience is equally valid), the hero's journey. The hero's journey is our journey.
Given that we have already been on a heavy-duty hero's journey of sorts since the New Moon (with the mission of "parting two dark curtains that closed the entrance to a sacred pathway"), the Sun's entry into Sagittarius will take the journey to the next level. The terrain changes. We've followed the trail along water so far this month; now we follow the trail that has been blazed by fire.
What's igniting for you?
To discover it, things become very mental for us now. Mercury (which rules our thought processes) is still very close to the Sun, so the Sun's entry into the lofty mental realm of Sagittarius amplifies our cognitive abilities. Mental giants, we are. Thus, the skill to practice this weekend is that of the "mentalist" because we create reality based on what we think, and what we think about is based on what we believe.
That's the overall picture for the weekend, but here are a few other things:
Venus (which is being amplified with solar activity) moves to the middle of Libra this weekend with the associated energies of "circular paths" and "after a storm, a boat landing stands in need of reconstruction." The "boat landing" energy was strongly reinforced by Mercury's retrograde a couple of months ago. Situations or habits or patterns of behavior from the past may recur within relationships. People, places, and things from the past return. Feelings of loss can be keen. The mentalist energy of the weekend helps us to understand these situations in a new way or see them in a different light. We can do things a different way.
The potential for hijinks and tricks remains higher on Saturday with the Sun disseminating the energy of "children in Halloween costumes indulging in various pranks," where Mercury was on Friday.
On Sunday, the Sun moves to the familiar "retired army veterans gather to reawaken old memories," which was the Sabian symbol of the Sagittarius New Moon last year. This energy brings reunion and union of like-minded people. But it can take us too far into the past, where we can get lost. At the core, the energy sparks or ignites things that need to come to life or come back to life. Of course, we note the potential (especially given the combination of the trickery and service to a cause) for a repeat of terror attacks.
One final thing, the energy that Mercury is activating this weekend ("the ocean covered with whitecaps" and "two men playing chess") is energy that is "behind the scenes." You never really know what you are getting when the "ocean covered with whitecaps" degree is activated because so much is hidden beneath the surface. It is harder to get to the truth. The Sun will activate this energy on Monday, so if the Sabian symbols call you to understand them, watch how Mercury plays out this degree over the weekend with the theme of what's hidden and then watch how the Sun does it Monday.
This weekend, we focus on the belief of Second Renaissance that is unfolding, understanding that it is happening at the same time that sanity seems to have been lost. Energy goes where attention flows, right? Let's practice being mental giants.
