The Body or the Mind? Both: The Moon in Sagittarius

Today the moon is in Sagittarius. The very best of this energy can help us find adventure, meaning, and hope. The worst of it can lead us to think we’re right and spout our opinions off as gospel. It’s a slippery slope.

What will help? Trying to keep an open mind. Getting to a happy Sagittarius place requires balancing the three archetypes: The Gypsy, the scholar and the philosopher. Sagittarius energy needs to explore, to learn and then to teach. That cycle keeps the energy flowing. If you were born with planets in Sagittarius, learning to honor all three archetypes is part of your daily homework. If you weren’t, transits like this bring you that challenge for a period of time.

While the Cancer sun gives us an agenda of safety, the Sagittarius moon calls us to freedom. Try to get outside sometime today. Take some space from your relationships and duties. You’ll have more to give others if you fill your own cup. Stretch yourself in some way. And move! The centaur energy asks us to honor both body and mind. Spread a message of meaning, truth or hope if you feel so inclined, but listen, too. Someone else’s wisdom might be what helps you expand today.
