Sagittarians and Their Season
Sagittarians are in their element during their season and get an extra boost from all the merriment and festivities. Of course, each year is a bit different depending on what else is happening in the sky, but nonetheless, it's time for Sagittarians to celebrate their birthdays. It can seem to them as if the whole world is throwing a month-long party for them, and a Sagittarian is not one to pass up a party.
Each Year all Sagittarians have what's called a Solar Return. A solar return chart can be drawn up for the date, time, and location of when the Sun the sky returns to its exact birth degree. This chart can be interpreted much like a natal chart. A solar return chart only lasts from one birthday to the next, but it can give clues as to what the next year will bring and how an individual can deal with the ups and downs of their life during the year.
Sagittarius' Season and Other Signs
The other fire signs, Aries and Leo, and the Air signs, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius, can be just as jolly as Sagittarius and find Sagittarius' season stimulating, fun and exciting. However, the earth signs, Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn, and water signs, Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio, might not be up to the season's fast-paced social energy. Still, everyone has Sagittarius in the birth charts, and when the Sun is in Sagittarius, those areas of your life will light up.
Sagittarius' Season Is a Gateway
Like all the mutable signs, the sign of Sagittarius is a transitional sign. It's the gateway to winter in the northern hemisphere and the transition for autumn to winter. It's the gateway to summer in the southern hemisphere and the transition from spring to summer. Enjoy the merriment of Sagittarius' season because next up on the zodiac's seasonal agenda is Capricorn's season, which is much more serious.
