Shifting To Sagittarius

The Sun moves into Sagittarius today, followed on Thursday by Sadge ruler Jupiter. They join Venus, who’s been there since last week, and for the next couple of days, the Moon is also in this sign. Not forgetting Pluto of course, who has been travelling this road since 1995.

It's a big change compared to the kind of energy so prevalent in recent weeks, thanks to all those planets in Scorpio, but it's similar to those recent weeks in the sheer amount of planets due to congregate in one sign. Such a planetary build-up can only intensify the flavour of the sign involved, which in turn is recognisable in the theme of current situations - as always it's a case of 'As above, so below'.

So how to recognise the Sagittarius vibe? Here's some great quotes from famous Sadgey's who capture the essence...

William Blake
"If the sun and moon should ever doubt, they'd immediatley go out"

"You never know what is enough unless you know what is more than enough"

Mark Twain
"Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities. Truth isn’t"

"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great"

Keith Richards
"There's an excellent book I've quite often read called "Hashish", by a couple of French guys. Very interesting. It's an education in chemistry & folklore. I've done the Bible & the Koran a few times. Sometimes just for the prose, sometimes for the information. The Kamasutra I've been through a few times, come to think of it. (laughing) I've done the chandelier, and the revolving table with melon. I've done it all mate."

"It's great to be here. It's great to be anywhere"

Sagittarius is the sign that says a big YES to life, and because it's associated with beliefs, faith, philosophy, the meaning of life and the wisdom of experience, there's no better time to use affirmations to ensure we're saying yes to what we'd most like to experience.

According to Jeanie Marshall in this article about writing affirmations,
"Affirmations are powerful. Thoughts, spoken words, and written statements are acts of creation. It is important that our words be in alignment with our desires. In order to live the life we want, we must affirm what we want, not what we do not want."

Interesting, this shift from such heavy Scorpio into optimistic Sag. I'm kind of excited and hopeful although I enjoyed the non stop Sturm and Drang of the past month very much, but I could use some space to breathe.

On affirmations---a wonderful way to retrain the brain's negativity. I wonder why it is such a difficult concept for many to grasp? For myself it's because I want an instant and visible response to my affirmation! Like praying, I wait for a god to respond with a visible sign of benevolent love.... It also brought to mind the idea of the pain that you know is better than unknown pain---another thing that stops us from changing but the opposite of the Sag energy.
