Everyone knows Sagittarius to be curious and open-minded, always looking over the next horizon. They seek and they search and they are always ready with a new question about what it all means. This can be both enlivening and frustrating, but it is also necessary. The real danger emerges when the seeking stops.
Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter seeks to expand everything, including our mental walls and boundaries. It is Mercury that is in its detriment in Sagittarius. Sagittarius’s job is not to know. It is to seek to know. It is to keep asking questions and keep exploring to find the answers.
The greatest danger for any Sagittarius is dogma. It is the assumption that they already know the answer. That they have done the work, led the search, and returned home with the true key to life, the universe, and everything. When a Sagittarius ceases to search, the spark is lost. The fire dims, the wisdom fades, and they become some of the most tedious people in the world. Think of a zealot shouting on the street corner. How many answers to you think he really has?
Sagittarius rules the legs for a reason. Their job is to keep traveling. Keep walking, keep putting one foot in front of the other in the constant search for answers. Keep asking, keep learning, keep going and going. That is Sagittarius’s sacred duty. They go to the edges of the earth to find the treasures there, then come to report back to the rest of us. And once they’ve done that, it’s off to next great horizon.
Everyone has Jupiter and Sagittarius somewhere in their chart. And it’s this place that we all have to be content with not knowing, but instead always seeking. And for anyone with Sagittarius prominent in their chart, take this advice: Keep searched. Keep expanding. The joy of the question will also be greater than then joy any answer can bring.
So you have Sagittarius? What are you seeking?
