This sign has the most syllables of any other sign in the zodiac. For this reason, some prefer to say "SAG". What is interesting about this is that Sagittarius is known for seeing the glass half full, the optimism is absolutely contagious with this sign. For the essence of Sagittarius is to believe, believe that the truth or the knowledge one seeks lies just over the horizon, just over the rainbow. With this vision, Sagittarius prompts us to explore, to follow one's inspiration, to navigate uncharted territory.
This can be likened to a child who is in anticipation of Christmas. Christmas has many myths and icons where one believes that a portly man wearing a red suit flys through the sky and comes down a chimney with just what you wished for. We all know the story. Children embrace this "make believe" story and it ignites a fire within. Conjuring up dreams and fantasies of just what Santa will bring.
What is your vision? When we come in contact with our vision, we come into contact with our soul's desires. Our soul has yearnings that want to be fulfilled during this lifetime. We know the ego has it's own plans and schemes, however, if we let down that facade and enter the imaginal realm, we can explore our ultimate wishes.
In order to access the soul, we are encouraged to relax and enter a calm environment. If that is available to you by lying down , listening to music, going outside- do whatever takes you into a space of openness. Listen to your breath and let your imagination guide you. Close your eyes and imagine yourself walking down a road, what does the road look like? What do you see, what do you smell, is anyone with you? Keep following the path, where are you going? Take yourself to the place of your ideal home, how does it appear, what does it look like? Who is there? What is inside and outside the home? How do you feel? What do you find yourself doing? What is going on in your life?
Take a few moments to jot down what you see and feel in this vision. Focus on what you truly want and make a vow to yourself to keep that near and dear to your heart as we embark on the New Year. Make a pact to honor your heart's desire and keep your vision with you.
With this New Moon at 26 degrees Sagittarius, we all have an opportunity to dream a little dream. To plant that seed of what we envision for ourselves. What would you put on your Santa wish list?
