As we move out of Scorpio’s transformative and intense season, we get ready to welcome the energy of the Sagittarius into our lives. Kicking off on October 23rd, the Sagittarius season is all about passion, expansion, and adventure. This is the season when the signs are likely to step outside of their comfort zone, try new things, and experience life in a whole new way.
As we enter their season, the Sagittarius energy is beaming around us for all Zodiac signs and is likely to affect us in a number of different ways. So, to give you a better idea of what you can expect to feel for the next several weeks, today, we’re going to talk about the Sagittarius season. We’re going to cover Sagittarius’s personality traits, ruling element, planetary influence, and some of the key energies that the other Zodiac members can expect to feel while we linger in their sign. Let’s get started.
Sagittarius Personality Overview
Starting with their personality, the Sagittarius sign is most known for its ambitious personality, always looking for a new adventure. They are natural explorers and love to seek new things in everything they do. Whether that be new travel experiences, new hobbies, or new connections, Sagittarius’s extroverted and outgoing energy fuels them to truly live for the moment and make the most out of life more than any other sign.
Outside of their general outgoing personality, Sagittarius loves to express themselves through new experiences in other ways. They love to try their hand at art, expand their knowledge, and always want to make new friends. With love and fire in their hearts, these signs make excellent friends and lovers and are very open about who they are with everyone they meet. They are also incredibly captivating and often considered to be the life of the party, as they are naturals at lighting up any room they enter.
While Sagittarius can typically get along with anyone, they don’t do well with restrictions. In fact, these fire signs need the freedom to thrive and grow and may shy away from people and situations that limit their ability to express themselves and do things their way. They can also be quite unpredictable and need people around them who are okay with that. Otherwise, Sagittarius will have a hard time sticking around.
On the other hand, like all signs, Sagittarius can also struggle sometimes as well and is often known for being incredibly blunt. While this isn’t always a bad thing, this can oftentimes come off as cocky and arrogant to people around them and can stir up disagreements and misunderstandings. Sagittarius has a hard time filtering the words they speak, and as such, their tongue can often get them into trouble. They also can struggle with promising things but may not always come through with them, often making them appear a bit flakey to those around them. Therefore, Sagittarius would do well to think things through before they speak, in all definitions of the word, to avoid as many issues with those around them as possible.
When it comes to their planetary ruler, Sagittarius is ruled by the planet Jupiter. Known as the planet of expansion and abundance, this energy is believed to point to Sagittarius’s need to expand in everything they do. At their heart, this sign is incredibly versatile and is always willing to try something new, no matter what it is. As such, this influence could be what helps to ignite a strong sense of adventure within the heart of the Sagittarius and may be one of the influences that encourages them to be so outgoing in all that they do.
Aside from this, Jupiter’s energy may also influence the Sag to seek more knowledge and growth in other ways. While Jupiter is often deemed the planet of expansion, it is also believed to be the planet of wisdom as well, and this energy could encourage the Sag to not only do more and experience more but also find ways to expand their mind with knowledge and the finer teachings of life. This can encourage the Sag to really think big in all that they do and help them have plenty of fun, but also find a balance with knowledge and learning.
Next, aside from its planetary ruler, Sagittarius is also deeply influenced by its elemental sign: fire. Known as the element of motivation, fire likely influences the deep sense of passion toward new things within Sagittarius. In general, fire signs are known to be incredibly powerful individuals that aspire for great things, which can clearly be seen in the sign of Sagittarius. Not only that but fire signs are also known to be incredibly strong-willed. When they want something, nothing can get in their way. They also will not tolerate disrespect and have no issue walking away from a toxic situation. However, they can also be impulsive and sometimes struggle with a temper. Or, in the case of the Sagittarius, they may come off a bit too blunt.
Although, despite a little roughness around the edges at times, you’ll never meet another more passionate and enthusiastic element about their life. And this elemental influence, overall, can be greatly seen in the many things that make the Sagittarius who they are and can make them an exciting and inspirational treasure of a friend or lover to have in your life.
Next, aside from their ruling planet and elemental sign, each Zodiac sign also has a symbol that they are represented by that pays homage to their overall Zodiac persona. For the Sagittarius, this symbol is represented by the archer. However, some also believe Sagittarius’s symbol to be the centaur. As such, we will cover a brief overview of both.
With their eyes always on the next target, the archer always aims for their next goal with calculating eyes for how to hit a true bullseye. With careful precision and planning, the archer can knock out their targets in a heartbeat and move on to the next very quickly. Much like the Sagittarius, this likely points to their enate ability to strive towards their goals with an unmatchable passion that keeps driving them. And, much like the arrow in the hands of the archer, the Sagittarius can aim incredibly high with their goals and go far in achieving them. Although, this ability to aim high for a goal or target may not just be directed towards their goals but towards their ability to seek new things in general. This could be seeking higher knowledge, a bigger goal, or higher wisdom.
On the other hand, many also believe the Sagiattirus’s symbol is that of a centaur, which can also point to several unique traits of this fire sign as well. For example, this can show the difference in personality within the Sagittarius that, in its own way, finds a balance between its stride and its wisdom. As such, the horse portion of the Sagittarius may point to their ability to stride relentlessly towards their goals. This can point to their strong will, fierce ability to never give up, and ability to go great distances when they truly want something. As for the human half that holds the bow, this may point to their ability to channel careful thinking toward their future goals. And, amidst their stride, they find wisdom and a more analytical approach that helps them to look towards the bigger picture. This balance can help to give the Sagittarius the best of both worlds and make them truly stand out from other fire signs which are often so mesmerized by their drive that they don’t really stop to think about the meaning behind the big picture.
Whichever you believe is the true symbol of the Sag, it’s clear to see that both symbols can easily be seen within the uniqueness of this sign and can point out the different areas of this fire sign’s personality deep within that we may not always get a chance to see.
How does Sagittarius season affect other signs?
Lastly, now that we’ve gone over some of the key traits and correspondences of those born under the Sagittarius sign, we also wanted to talk about how this fire sign affects the rest of the Zodiac members while we move through their sign. With that said, this season, the signs may feel more passionate and goal-oriented than usual. This could have the signs waking up with more optimism each day and could encourage them to make a better stride towards their dreams than before. Whether that be in the form of encouraging you to plan out your goals, let your mind wander towards the possibilities, or take action, don’t be surprised if you begin to see yourself, your life, and the things you want in a new inspired light, and find the kick in the butt you needed to truly take a chance on them.
Outside of this, some of the signs may also feel a little more outgoing in other areas of their lives. This could point to the signs of being more open-minded about things in their life and could have them seeking new opportunities around them. These could be goals, but they could also be new opportunities to learn and expand their mind or meet new people. Whatever it is, don’t be surprised if you feel a little more outgoing in trying new things or expanding your skills and interests this season. This could even have you reconnecting with friends more and channeling more on an extroverted side as you move forward.
Something other signs may find themselves experiencing this month is a more casual and laidback tone toward life. While the Sagittarius is a passionate sign with a drive that’s hard to beat, at their core, they’re all about experiencing life to the fullest and just enjoying themselves. While this can mean expanding themselves and trying new things, it can also be learning to slow down and enjoy more of the little things as well. As such, you may have a different attitude toward things this season. Your priorities may change, you may find new ways to manage stress, and simply just live your life a little more fully by your own definition, which is sure to be very rewarding for you.
On the other hand, signs may feel a little more fiery than usual, likely affecting every sign differently. This could mean you’re a little more sassy, argumentative, defensive, or even blunt than usual and you will need to be careful to keep yourself in check. Sometimes when you’re in this mindset, it can be hard to see that you’re in the wrong, so just be careful to analyze your behavior, how it makes you feel, and how it’s affecting those around you. It’s good to be strong in your beliefs and set boundaries where you need to, but just make sure you aren’t getting too caught up in your head to the point that your strong will is becoming arrogant. Remember to ground and reflect this season to help keep yourself in check.
Overall, the Sagittarius season is likely to be an eye-opening season full of new opportunities, a new vision, and a new attitude toward your future. While you may get a boost toward your goals, you may simultaneously find yourself slowing down to appreciate the smaller things around you. Either way, this seems to be a great season to get in touch with yourself and prioritize whatever makes you happiest so that you can learn to truly live your life to the fullest.
Happy Sagittarius season!
