Earlier in your life you learned a lot. You took in the knowledge of those that taught you. You read books, soaked in belief systems from philosophies, whether of old, or new. And you made your own belief systems, and conclusions, based on the knowledge that you obtained, and were given. You were opinionated and had a strong conviction in the systems that you made for yourself.
South Node in Sagittarians are smart. There is no doubt about that. They base their opinions on facts, theories, systems, and information, rather than feelings. Not only that, earlier in their life, or in past lives, they might have traveled far and wide, experiencing places and situations that shaped their perceptions, and world views. And from earlier in your life, or past lives, all these conclusions, knowledge, and experiences, helped shaped your opinions and theories. You had opinions and theories on everything, whether it was mathematics, writing, what you believed truly happened in history, your political beliefs, or just how everyone should eat the same candy as you for lunch.
Truth was the centerpiece in your life. ‘Please tell the truth’ was your philosophy. You liked telling the truth, or at least what you believed to be true. You also preferred that others told the truth, or truths, too. But there’s a problem with this philosophy, and system, that you’ve built for yourself. Which truths are the most accurate, best, and which truth is closest to reality? For example, someone could believe that the moon is made of cheese. Are they lying to me, or everybody else? No, of course they aren’t. It is because they genuinely believe it, and they don’t have any intention of lying, or deceiving, anyone. But does that mean that their truth is necessarily universal? No. Is it the most agreed upon or the most valid? No. Sagittarius South Nodes must realize that their experiences, truths, philosophies, and opinions are not the only ones. That if they desire to become a whole person, they must learn to listen, and observe, other people and their truths.
This may sting South Node in Sagittarians, because they were so sure of their own points of views. This lifetime is a lifetime of being more open to others’ views, political beliefs, philosophies, opinions, and beliefs in general.
Talk that walk!
Earlier in your life, or in past lives, you were honest to the point of being blunt. Sometimes you even chased away, or offended, your possible allies, or supporters. You didn’t lie, but your presentation, and delivery, was a bit too strong, blunt, fiery, or strong, for other people. Try not to become too impassioned, or shrill, with your performance. People want to listen to your views, but don’t push them away with your overly passionate, and in-their-face, energy. You must learn to manage your energy if you want to win anyone over.
In this life, you must learn to communicate better. Learn to enunciate your words instead of warbling them all together in a jumble. Make sure your intonations are correct. And please, don’t yell. Trying not to get into people’s faces and pushing them to agree with you, is important in getting your point across. All these things will help you along the way to winning over many supporters.
Communication isn’t just words, sentences, talking, and sounds. It’s your energy, your vibration, the way you stand, the way you walk, a wink of the eye, your tone of voice, etc, etc. Making the mistake of thinking that communication is just words will lead you, and your views, towards a state of being unpopular.
From Vagabond to regular life
You’ve spent so many past lives traveling, and garnering up experiences, that in this life the universe might force you to stay in one place. Pick a city, neighborhood, or state that you like, and stay in it for a long time. Live your city, don’t just skim and scan the surface of it. Go into detail, or details. You have a knack for missing the details in life, because you’re so used to looking at the bigger system. Missing a detail in this life will make your arguments, and presentations about your experiences, seem vague, and bias. Details will show that you are attentive, that you are a bit more objective (depending on how you use your details), and that you can discern between things.
In this lifetime, or later in your life, you must learn to merge with your environment, instead of just having a quick look at it. Merge with your neighborhood, your city, and your surroundings. You have a tendency towards thinking you know a place just because you had a quick whiff of a smell, an abrupt glance, or just had a trip to a place for a few days.
There is nothing wrong with your Sagittarian, or Gemini, mutability. But it should be used for going into details, ‘feeling a place out’ over time, and going deeper into information. Sagittarius South Nodes may learn that life is more complicated, once you learn more about the trees in the forest, than if you just study the forest. There are many angles to a situation once you look deeper at the information. Perspectives and truths may rely more on the many angles that a person can look at.
The truth may be more complicated, and met with more perspectives, than you thought in the past. You shouldn’t compromise your beliefs, or points of views, Sagittarius South Nodes, but you could do well with keeping an open mind with as little bigotry as possible.
