Sun in Sagittarius: A Focus on the Larger World

Sun: Sagittarius

The symbol for Sagittarius is the archer, a person who wields a bow and arrow, making it easy to reach a distant target. Although many old star-catalogues depict a human pointing at a target, the most common star maps show Sagittarius as a Centaur, part man and part horse. 

In mythology, Centaurs were known to be loud and boisterous, and we often see situations in everyday life where people are doing almost anything to be seen or heard when the Sun shines from Sagittarius. It’s also a time when international affairs become far more important than things happening locally.

The month of Sagittarius is generally favorable for travel. It also favors devotional practices, yoga, meditation, or any other practice you engage in to attain spiritual goals or for self-improvement.

Your Sun in Sagittarius Horoscope


Sun in Sagittarius for an Aries (Aries dates: March 20 - April 19)

During the transit of the Sun through Sagittarius, Aries, it’s light will shine on your Solar ninth house, the house of journeys, and the place of higher knowledge. Often the journey may be a trip to somewhere you’ve never been, even if its close by. This jaunt is for the purpose of gaining greater experience in life. Because of the Square to Neptune, which falls in your Solar 12th, this could mean learning about hidden things or secrets. It could also mean exploring esoteric or fantasy literature. If you resolve to focus on learning something new, this can be a fabulous period, Aries.

Sun in Sagittarius for a Taurus (Taurus dates: April 20 - May 20)

The Sun will be transiting your Solar eighth house of financial obligations, unearned wealth and expenses. This could be a good sign for your financial situation, Taurus, if you are working to resolve debts, consolidate your payments or shrink them. Unearned wealth is a term used to mean money that comes from a source other than your regular income, such as returns on investments, insurance payouts, money that comes from winning contests or games, trust funds and legacies.

Sun in Sagittarius for a Gemini (Gemini dates: May 21 - June 20)

While the Sun is in the sign Sagittarius, it will be transiting your Solar seventh house of one-on-one relationships, contracts and negotiations. For you Gemini, these things fall into focus now. Expect your closest partner in life or business to be somewhat demanding of your time and energy. You should try to avoid signing contracts during December, Gemini, because the blinding light of the Sun may hide small print or other details that could cause some future trouble.

Sun in Sagittarius for a Cancer (Cancer dates: June 21 - July 21)

The Sun in your Solar sixth house will focus your attention on wellness, pets and co-workers or employees. Cancer people love entertaining and entertainment, but be very careful about casual enjoyment during this transit. You may be more physically sensitive than usual to certain things like food or medicine. Neptune’s position in your Solar ninth house could cause you to neglect your meditation or spiritual practice. This is not a time to abandon the old and adopt new teachings. Trying to speed up your personal development may result in misunderstandings and troublesome situations. Be generous to people who do favors for you or work for you.

Sun in Sagittarius for a Leo (Leo dates: July 22 - August 22)

Sagittarius is your Solar fifth house of fun and enjoyment, and with the Sun shining its light there, it is likely to put you in party mode. But Neptune’s position in your Solar eighth house is not helpful. You to spend more on gifts and entertainment than you thought you would. It can also cause you to make costly financial errors in the spirit of just having fun. If you’re not careful, Neptune will gladly teach you the meaning of having too much fun. It’s a great time to enjoy different forms of entertainment, though. Grab friends and enjoy some cinema or plan a day trip –the more adventurous or mysterious the better. Take some time to give thanks for your good fortune.

Sun in Sagittarius for a Virgo (Virgo dates: August 23 - September 22)

For you, Virgo, the Sun will be transiting your Solar fourth house while it moves through Sagittarius. Your focus now will be on the place where you live during this transit of the Sun. Usually it will mean a time when cleaning, repairs, redecorating and the like are either done or planned for. This year the transit of the Sun is influenced by Neptune in your Solar seventh house. Maybe you’ll think about creating a more exotic atmosphere by bringing in objects from a non-local culture. Maybe something regarding roommates or people who live with you will come up, Virgo. You might even change residence, or at plan to do so in the very near future.

Sun in Sagittarius for a Libra (Libra dates: September 23 - October 22)

Sagittarius is your third Solar house of communication, routine travel and your local area. With this transit, you may find that people communicating with you, especially for business purposes, are more blunt or rude than usual. Thanks to Neptune’s position in the Solar sixth house, Libra, this kind of interaction might be due to a misunderstanding caused by technical issues, so do your best to be as straightforward as possible with everyone. Neptune may also cause trouble with your commute or local errands. Rather than get upset, Libra, focus on what you can change, because if these issues result from gas or water pipeline problems, you probably can’t fix them on your own.

Sun in Sagittarius for a Scorpio (Scorpio dates: October 23 - November 21)

During the next month while the Sun is transiting through Sagittarius, it will be in your second Solar house of money and assets. This house concerns income, so check your books and receipts to find out if anything is happening that you haven’t anticipated. Neptune is in the fifth house, Scorpio, so you need to be concerned about your spending, especially on fun and personal enjoyment. Don’t let your emotions get involved in the process of buying lavish gifts, because it is easy to overdo it now. If you have been having financial problems, light will be shed on them and the cause will be exposed; do your best to attack the problem head-on.

Sun in Sagittarius for a Sagittarius (Sagittarius dates: November 22 - December 20)

You’re going to have a birthday during this transit of the Sun through your sign. This means you have an opportunity for a clear outlook on your year ahead. You might concentrate on things that need to be done at home, thanks to Neptune sitting in your fourth house. With the Sun being in your Solar first house, you’ll shine brightly during this time, but you might want to tone down that Centaur side of your nature, because the raucous and blunt aspects of Sagittarius might surface and cause difficulties for you. This not a time to joke around; it’s a time for promoting yourself and your agenda for the coming year.

Sun in Sagittarius for a Capricorn (Capricorn dates: December 21 - January 19)

The Sun’s transit through Sagittarius, your Solar 12th house of Secrets, Capricorn, can lift the rug the dirt was swept under if you let it. This is neither a time for revealing your private feelings or plans to others, nor is it a time to let others entrust you with theirs. The Sun shedding its light in this part of your chart is very good, however, for the private study of unusual or esoteric subjects, and Neptune in your Solar third house will help you with this. Look into those deeper or more technical subjects you’ve been interested in, Capricorn, but don’t rush out and spend a fortune on books and videos – you might not find what you really need.

Sun in Sagittarius for an Aquarius (Aquarius dates: January 20 - February 17)

The Sun, while in Sagittarius, will be transiting your Solar 11th house of friends, group activities and allies. Neptune is sitting in your Solar second house of money, so it’s entirely possible that friends or associates could confuse your financial situation. And because of the position of the Sun, Aquarius, allies could do something that would improve your income. So, be open but suspicious, and do your research carefully before making any financial decisions involving others. This astrological scenario also favors group activities, Aquarius, but it would probably be best to avoid buying into any financial projects now.

Sun in Sagittarius for a Pisces (Pisces dates: February 18 - March 19)

With the Sun transiting Sagittarius, your Solar 10th house of career and reputation, you’ll need to be rather careful, especially around bosses, elders and other authority figures. That’s because Neptune, which has been in your sign for a while (and will be there for several more years) can cause others to misunderstand you. This is a good time for presenting plans you need financial support for, but make sure you have all your facts and details straight and organize them properly. If you use this energy for humor and artistic flourish, you will certainly do well. This transit is very favorable for those in the creative or performing arts.
