Sagittarius Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Mutable Fire. Your ruling planet is Jupiter.

You are headed for a big crossing of some kind, Sagittarius, but you won't know what it is until you get there. Your thought process only takes you further to the inside and then disappears, leaving blind faith to get you through. A certain instability of your footing creates also an opportunity, although things are a bit dicey, because you don't really have to know where you are going in order to successively put one foot ahead of the other. Your month is like those fortune-telling eight balls where the answers swim in darkness until you turn them over. After the 23rd the outcome will appear.

As the month begins, you are fully committed to the exploration of the yeasty inner realms behind and beyond your conscious mind. This is where you'll find the material that your dreams are made of, and waking visions and other fantasies also, everything that is not the stuff of concrete reality but is not less real for all of that. It may be difficult to deal with ordinary subject matter as you daydream, but you are not spending your time unwisely, since the foundation of all your deeply held desires is the largest part of you in spite of appearances. You might become impatient with delays and find yourself full of self-reflective silence, but there is a net gain in terms of emotional integration. The Full Moon of Sunday, November 5th takes you out of your silence to share you life with others, but in some ways only drives you further into it. You are seeing one culmination of what you started in the last days of the previous month, and feeling a shift in terms of the grounding of your ultimate intention. The changes that you are involved in represent in the final analysis, and over a long period of time a thorough transformation of your identity. They are concerned with perspective shifts on how you see your world and the part you play it, a part that you are re-writing for yourself in the course of this month's journey inward. The Last Quarter Moon, taking place the following weekend, on Sunday, November 12th, represents a time when the ideals and goals that you have formulated must meet the demands of the concrete world, and conform perhaps unwillingly to a narrowing of perspective. You must take what you can, make the most of it and forge ahead anyway. Your progress is necessarily slow at this time in any case with Mercury through your sector of inner life. Mercury has been dropping in its retrograde motion and on the 17th, as it finally stops in its tracks and turns to direct motion, things begin to pick up. A fresh start definitely comes into fruition with the New Moon that takes place on Monday the 20th. The Sun and Jupiter enter your sign a few days later. After that, every day brings progress.
