There are many Sagittarius Archetypes to “Open the Lotus” on such as the Super Hero, Special Forces, The Professor, Philosopher, the Pastor, the Running back or Wide Receiver and Slave Catcher, Judge, the Archangel Zadkiel, The General, or the Emperor/Empress.
Outside of the Mythologies and Great Stories of Sagittarius in culture, the sign represents in the horoscope your personal life journeys, experiences and philosophies including religion. Sagittarius in the Horoscope represents the area of life where you are luckiest, prosper, have abundance and experience joy. Sagittarius opposite is Gemini the sign of communication, the conscious mind, relatives, and immediate community, Sagittarius expands on everything that Gemini is, where it is Mass Communication vs. Personal Communication, it is Higher learning vs. Early Education, and it is the expanded consciousness or God Consciousness vs. Personal Consciousness or Human Consciousness. As the 5th Place of Ego of the Sign of Ego Leo, it represents the Super Ego that part of humanity that is interconnected with the all, and thus God Consciousness, and being the 5th Place of the Hero or Leo it to is the Super Hero.
Being the sign of potential experience Sagittarius is the world beyond what you know… Sagittarius is accumulated knowledge (Aquarius in the 3rd), Sagittarius points beyond the border to the larger world and hence its symbol the Arrow pointed Skywards.
Sagittarius is as a very spiritual sign, especially since it is ruled by Jupiter which is also the Co ruler and Ancient ruler of Pisces. Pisces is a mutable sign like Sagittarius and like Sag it too is an indication of dissolving borders, as Sag is expanding beyond borders. It is the mutable affinity and Jupiter’s relationship to them which allows them to share in the idea of “beyond what is known”
As well the center of our Milky Way galaxy is in Sagittarius and the Sun and Earth align with this point approximately Dec. 17-20 each year. (The Whole 13th Sign Mythology) We as human beings tend to project our potential for Higher Self skywards.
This point leads to why Sagittarius is the archetype for the Higher Consciousness, Higher Mind, Higher Self, Super Ego or God Consciousness, which can manifest in our life in. How the Theme of the Higher Consciousness, Mind, Self will be described by planets in and ruling Sagittarius and its associated house, the 9th Place or the House, Sign that Jupiter, Sag’s Ruler, is in (Down to the Last Planet of that Dispositorship)… Sagittarius and the 9th are where the God concept and the Self concept merge into one, and Jupiter’s location is how that synchronization is expressed in life.
Such manifestation, and expression is the Higher Self, the god- self, the highest potential of who a person is, as opposed to the ego (Leo) and Id (Aries).
What is the Higher Consciousness, the Super Ego, or Higher Self? It is that version of self that is the true Divine Self, our creative monad, or the 5th House of our 5th House. The Higher Self is the part of your consciousness that is in direct contact with the One or the Creator, and thus it acts as your Super Ego. The Higher Self is accessed through growth processes, it is the highest potential for goodness and therefore, your Enlightened Self (Hence Sag / Higher Consciousness is the 11th Place of Enlightenment for Humanity or the Collective Consciousness / Aquarius)
I find it ironic that the sign of Divine Consciousness, Sagittarius is represented in the myths of the King of the Gods, such as Zeus, Indra and etc, and associated with Higher Learning and Institutions of Higher Learning such as College, those things which expand the mind. Then again I can see how because Leo and Sagittarius are signs of Common Affinity for Leo have the 9th Sign in the 5th Place of Love and Sagittarius has Leo the sign of Love in the 9th Place.
Now normally in most astrological blogs or written pieces about a sign it is typical to go into the Signs expression in the Houses, and Planets in that sign and so forth, however I wanted to simply touch on the part of Sagittarius dealing mostly with the Higher Consciousness, Mind and Self, however another favorite application of Sagittarius for me is COMEDY.
Sagittarius is the sign of Comedy, Laughter, and Enjoyment and thus holds providence over Comedians.
Where Sagittarius is in the Horoscope reveals what you find most humorous and where you have Jupiter will describe the outlet for your particular brand of humor.
They say Laughter (Sagittarius) Makes the Heart Grow Fonder (Leo in the 9th Place of Sagittarius)
As well that what makes you laugh can also make you Cry (Jupiter Exalted in Cancer)
Note that planets in the 9th or in Sagittarius or Aspecting Jupiter can show a Comedian their own Cosmic Comedy Skit, and as well the best way to BROADCAST, PUBLISH and reach beyond their normal scopes.
So let’s get ready for SAGITTARIUS Time, a transit in life that can potentially bring out the Higher self in you, and if nothing else expand your experience in life, with fortune and prosperity, and keep it
