Sun enters Sagittarius

by Eric Williams

The Sun moves into Sagittarius on Monday, November 22nd. Fasten your seat belts, the flight is departing. From the depths to the heights. The day the Sun enters Sagittarius it joins both Mercury and Mars which gives the Sun an extra boost. Jupiter is also moving into Aries on January 22nd, bringing in even more pioneering spirit to our endeavors, especially since it has been hanging around with that rebel Uranus.

The symbol for Sagittarius is the archer, leaning back, bow aimed, cocked, and ready to soar. All that is required is letting go of the arrow. Sagittarius has enthusiasm and spirit and brings in an energy quite optimistic and visionary. There is an absolute “can do” attitude with Sagittarius and it calls on us to expand our horizon. It is time to quit holding back, to aim our bows and charge forward.

Sagittarius is literally pointing to our need for bigger visions and expanded energy. It you look towards the constellation Sagittarius in the sky, and let your gaze keep on expanding outward you will find yourself looking right at the center of our Milky Way Galaxy, called the Galactic Center. Just last week scientists discovered two massive bubbles at this center. The bubbles span half the visible sky, have highly defined edges, and are emitting gamma rays energy. Gammy rays are the highest form of light in the universe. Scientists don’t understand the origin or nature of these bubbles, or the energy they are emitting. They have some possible theories, including that something is coming from the black hole at the center of our galaxy. For more on this amazing event go to www.

Suddenly that center in our galaxy seems really close. We’re in the midst of a paradigm shift where we are looking at things and pondering ideas that we’ve never considered before. Think big, really big. As Henry Thoreau said “Go boldly in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” This month of Sagittarius will be a great month to work on our visions, decide what our highest contributions can be, take our passions and give them form. We don’t want to hold back on setting forth our visions any longer, but instead¬† “Boldly go where no one has gone before.”
