Sagittarius Season runs between November 23rd and December 21st, a month of shopping, parties and excitement. Despite the chill in the air, we still hold celebrations at this time of year, heading out for evenings of revelry. This is a spirited time of excess, as we delight in bejewelled trees and bodies, and raise our glasses in merriment. Twinkling lights are strung against inky night skies. Similarly, those born under this sign usually sparkle – brimming with optimism, ready for joviality and fun, flashing a dazzling smile and the mischievous twinkle in their eyes…
They’re free-spirited and humorous
Hailey Bieber embodies the exuberance of Sagittarius, taking life in her stride, buoyant, smiling and unfettered. Naturally cheerful, these people look for the positives in any situation and are known to be playful and live free, the true stand-ups of the zodiac. Chrissy Teigen, Margaret Cho, Tyra Banks and the late Anna Nicole Smith demonstrate this vibrancy of character, with some of the most over-the-top fashion designers born under this bold, overt sign. Note the signature styles of Gianni Versace, John Galliano, and Thierry Mugler, opulent and colourful, oozing a joie-de-vivre.
Look to them for truths
Like their fire sign sisters Aries, Sagittarius brings honesty to the conversation, known in particular for their frankness, and ability to ‘tell it like it is’, shooting from the hip. They are truth-seekers, restless in their quest for higher meaning. Once they’ve found principles that resonate, they advocate their knowledge and preach the good word. Usually, they have a hot take thanks to their lived experiences; with a sincerity that’s far from dull, they can even come off as evangelical having found their specialism. This is the most visionary of astrological signs!
They are natural entertainers
Sagittarius is a torch bearer who lights the way for others to find meaning and has a knack for omitting wonder and even magic through the creative arts. From Walt Disney, Steven Spielberg, Bruce Lee and Brad Pitt in film, to legends of the music industry, Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, Jay-Z and Taylor Swift. There is a slew of Sagittarius pop stars that co-incidentally got their start with Disney, including Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Miley Cyrus and Vanessa Hudgens, and more who have come up thanks to their raw talent, like Billie Eilish, Nicki Minaj, and Rita Ora.
World-wide and worldly wise
Ruled by lucky Jupiter, Sagittarius tend to land on their feet and therefore tend to take risks and fly a little close to the wind. Gas giant Jupiter happens to be the biggest planet in our Solar System and sees Sagittarius synonymous with abundance, expansion and growth. As they explore, spread their wings and broaden their horizons. They usually find it easy to pick up another perspective or outlook on life, amassing an education (not necessarily in a traditional sense) that spans across culture, philosophy, and theology, making them natural globe-trotters and perpetual students of the University of Life.
Wild and wise
Represented by a Centaur with bow and arrows flung far and wide, Sagittarius is wild and warm, unbridled in their enthusiasm, adventurous and cavalier. They gallop (rather than walk), strong in their stride, half-horse. Yet they also maintain the wisdom of their human-nature. They are the only astrological sign who can merge animal instincts and good sense. Open and outgoing, their eyes look to the rainbows with gold at their end, and they’ll always help you see the silver lining.
