Sun in Sagittarius

The Expression of Sagittarius

Sagittarius focuses on expansion, optimism and the sense of adventure. This leads to interests in expansive directions such as philosophy, religion, higher education and travel. There is often a focus on society, ethics and culture.

Sagittarius rules the thighs, the largest muscles in the body. It is a fire sign ruled by the largest planet, Jupiter. It is associated with exploration, higher learning, religions, faith, social structures, humor and nature.

Sagittarius and Mercury Retrograde

The classic way that sun in Sagittarius sets themselves up for the Mercury Retrograde Cycle is to ignore the details and to avoid checking or asking others for their input because there is a sense of 'knowing' what they are doing.

When that 'knowing' comes from intuition or an inner sense of one's truth, it can lead to the next positive expansion. But just as easily, if it does not come from this place, but instead comes from judgment based on a false premise, then it can lead to difficulties.

Often the hint for sun in Sagittarius that their sense of knowing is incorrect occurs when the choice is made to ignore checking the facts. It occurs in much the same way as when someone who is trying to lose weight decides to take a break in checking their weight for a few days. More often than not, the very avoidance is a hint that in fact their weight is going up. In a similar fashion, when Sagittarius avoids checking the facts, because they think they are right, then they need to re-examine their stance, because it is then that they are at risk of setting themselves up.
