In our Northerly climate it seems as if we have been in winter for weeks now. Astrology does not have hard lines and there is gradual cross over periods. The concepts remain the same and can be applied just the same.
Sagittarius is ruled by the planet Jupiter, the element Fire and the mutable principle. This represents the fire of the heart with a clear mind. Sagittarians can have a curious, exploring mind seeking knowledge. They are optimistic, love freedom and have a vitality for living life.
This is a good time of year to explore a clear, creative mind initiating anything we would like to see come into actuality for the future. Through observation of nature, our experiences, and all kinds relationships we can find knowledge. From an open heart and clear mind, we can move this knowledge into wisdom. By moving our knowledge out of the mind and into the world in a practical way it becomes wisdom.
