The last sign before the beginning of a new year ends as a period of preparation for the year to come. This is a time of celebration, self-reflection and contemplation of what lies ahead.
As Sagittarius’s cycle ends with the Winter Solstice. It is marked with the shortest day of the year. The sun sits at its lowest in altitude and is the turning point from which the sunlight will grow stronger and brighter in the days to come.
“Brighter days to come” personifies the optimistic quality of Sagittarius’s outlook on life. As a true visionary it seeks the truth, looking for the next horizons of awareness to better understand the meaning of life. It is the “universal voice” of inspiration and faith that sees the bigger picture and our interconnectedness. Its mission is to Unify.
The early stage of development for Sagittarius is met with a vision that is somewhat limited. Self-centered experiences and undisciplined impulses will dominate its indiscriminate mind. This impracticality without structure leaves emotional desire as its driving force with no real direction.
As maturation progresses an awakened view is unveiled to Sagittarius. A clearing now appears. Self-discipline delivers an understanding of how to direct life energy. This refinement generates an expansive vision that brings forth a directed focus in which purpose and the reason for being is experienced. The bigger picture is now seen and temperance of emotional desire subsides in support of this greater vision.
As a result of this spiritual identification of itself, Sagittarius now knows it must serve humanity. It sees the path and pioneers life as the Teacher, Healer and Lover of Mankind. Symbolized by the Centaur with its Bow and Arrow, “The One-Pointed Disciple” acts as a guidepost for others to seek their own path of enlightenment for the greater good of all.
Expanding our awareness to see beyond the physical earth plane is how Sagittarius supports the evolution of Humanity. It inspires and aspires us to grow Spiritually, awakening the “Soul-Centered” existence within. And it is through this “awakening” the discovery of interconnectedness is found and the mission of Unity can be reached.
