On November 23rd, the Sun went from Scorpio into Sagittarius and it’s time for everyone to get their thinking caps on, broaden their minds and expand their horizons!
Sagittarius is the great explorer of the zodiac. Of the three Fire signs, it is the one whose fire has a tendency to direct its energies externally, spreading its flames across the wider world, continuously expanding, growing and flourishing.
When the Sun enters Sagittarius, it’s time for adventure. The energies of this Fire sign impact us all, and the best thing we can do is to harness the opportunities it offers!
During the month when the Sun is in Sagittarius, we can enjoy some light relief from the heavy and often chaotic energies of Scorpio. This is a time when we realize we can achieve that goal, we can reach those heights, we can do whatever we set our mind to! Sagittarius brings us bright optimism, energy, and a powerful “can-do” attitude. When opportunity knocks, we answer the door with nerve and excitement!

Sun in Sagittarius 4-Card Tarot Spread
Question: How can I work with the Sagittarius energies this month?
- Card 1: What new project shall I explore?
- Card 2: What are the positives of this project?
- Card 3: What are the negatives of this project?
- Card 4: What I look set to gain from this project
Below is an example spread so you can get a better idea of how it works:
Card 1: The Sun
The Sun is an interesting card in the position for what I shall explore and I intuitively interpreted it as travel. As Sagittarius is a sign where travel is highly recommended due to the opportunities of exploring new lands and places, this would make sense. Traveling somewhere, whether it’s somewhere else in your state or country, or somewhere across the globe, is recommended by the cards to help me expand my horizons.
Card 2: The Hermit
Another interesting card to get and a Major! The Hermit indicates there may be some serious soul-searching going on during this project; that it may even be a spiritual journey. Some kind of dawning realization may hit, as the Hermit represents going away for a while and coming back feeling enlightened. For this reason, I would think this trip would be a solitary one.
Card 3: King of Wands
The King of Wands is a card of dynamism and energy. It can also represent a person who displays characteristics of the King of Wands.
However, in the ‘negatives’ position, I would intuit this card as ‘ego’. The King of Wands is indeed an energetic and vibrant character, but he is also a card of powerful ego. As the second card is one that represents the journey of the soul, I would take this to mean my ego may stand in the way – one way or another – of me being open to this spiritual journey. In the negatives, the King of Wands shows up as a warning and encourages me to use the energies of Sagittarius to be open-minded to this journey.
Card 4: Ace of Cups
The Ace of Cups is a card of emotional purity and love in its highest form. As the card represents what I seek to gain, this indicates I will in some way experience emotional release. Perhaps some emotional healing and being able to move on from something. As the journey appears to be a spiritual one, the Ace of Cups may help me realize something on an emotional level that could be wonderful for my soul.
So, there you have a reading to help you harness the energy of Sagittarius! Remember, expansion and exploration come in many forms – you may travel, you may read a new book, you may try a new hobby. Whatever it is, let the Tarot card meanings assist you during this time and, above all, enjoy!
