Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the Zodiac. It comes in the third month of the fall season. Why does this, a fire sign, appear at the time of the year when it growing cold, when winter is almost upon us? Well, even in cold weather, one must keep warm. How do we do it? We build fires, we pile on the clothing for insulation, we turn up the thermostat, we stay indoors as much as possible-find some cozy nook to hibernate in if we are a bear-in which case we will have to put on considerable fat as fuel to sustain us through the winter, or we keep busy, generating heat through activity. We go hunting - by the way that was is this Full Moon's energy A Hunter's Moon. Bambi if you stayed in the bush, you survived ;), ice skating, skiing, have snowball fights, or we travel to warmer climate; we migrate. Like the birds, we go on a distant journey, only we hop on a plane or board a train.
Many Sagittarian traits have grown out of the need to keep warm and cozy in the short days and long nights when fall turns into winter.

November is a month to remember filled with birthday celebrations and wishes! I have a few friends who are Earth signs. This group of merry makers help keep my feet planted on the ground. By my side you will find a few Water signs, but they can be a little too emotional for my liking. Friends I am sorry to say, but you know who are :-) And then there is me and my fellow Fire signs. We can be more than some people can handle. When we enter together, we can light up any room, and when we leave the spark of magic can go out.
"Happy birthday to all my firecrackers!"
The planet Jupiter and the Zodiac sign, Sagittarius (the Archer) rules birthdays between November 21st and December 20th.
Riding an early morning ride,
With graceful figure set astride,
Swimming the Channel (well, not quite!)
Dancing with zest half through the night,
Playing at tennis, swift and strong,
Sculling a boat through sleepy water,
You'll find November's agile daughter.
An active maiden she will prove,
And one who's always on the move,
For, when her sports don't keep her busy,
She'll do something, till you're dizzy!
She crowds up each and every day,
And that's not all. For, between whiles,
She's helping lame dogs over stiles,
And teaching, to each limping rover,
Just how a stile should be got over!
A fairy godma, wise and gay,
The best of helpers, any day,
If she can help folk on her way!
A wee bit bossy. Be how true,
How kind, how quick to dare to do.
Dear Miss November, here's to you!
Additional traits optimistic, though easily discouraged temporarily; rather finicky and fault finding; very affectionate; impulsive.
Her life: She is often marries twice and likes to keep her work-or unpaid public work-after marriage. She is opposes to divorce or separation so she doesn't enter commitment lightly. She is what she is a free spirit!
The December Man (born between November 21st and December 20th) are destined to prosperity. You need not fear poverty or hard drudgery if you marry one of them. The good things in life will be yours-if not actual wealth, at least you will have sufficient travel and entertain and to indulge in social pleasures that appeal strongly to him (money isn't everything - money helps pay the bills - you can't buy or rent TRUE LOVE ).
This is perhaps the finest and most beneficial of all planetary influences. Though it lacks the inspiration of the Sun (ego), it is more than makes up for it in a practical way. People swayed by this influence are friendly and generous, appreciative of others and there for cooperative.
Sincerity and sympathy go into Jupiterian nature. Hence they are honest, charitable, impelled by high ideals. They have open minds and are always ready to take up a worthwhile cause. This automatically makes them popular, and their very frankness often makes them wonder why they are so well liked. Such are the positive aspects of Jupiter.
Wasteful ways can be a negative aspect of the Jupiterian nature. Recognition of this can lead to simple yet vital ways of correcting the fault.
Jupiter controls the sign of Sagittarius, giving wisdom and integrity to each, provided of course that wasteful ways are avoided. In all cases, the Jupiterian influence is regarded as highly favorable.

November 22 - December 1. Planet Mercury -
Mercury is the God of roads and highways, earth pathways, messengers, and scouts to carry and receive information.
"You may keep my cows, give me your lyre (musical instrument like a harp. Anciently used as an accomplishment to poetry. An expression of individual emotions of the poet)."
During this time frame - Keep an eye on your intellectual property.
Keen quiet thinking and careful preparation of plans characterized this period. Being on the cusp, with the influence of Mars still present, such planning will result in action.
December 2nd to December 11th the Moon - planet of illusions
and Mars action.
Seldom produces conflict in the individual nature. People thrive on new scenes and varied interests. Luck seems to favor them, but they take too many things for granted and too apt to avoid important issues. At this time of the cycle try to not to offer up to the world fluff. Quality over quantity. Gentle persuasion works best, but take on a fighting spirit if needed.
December 12 -December 21 The Sun in Saturn The planet of Self combined with the planet of no excuses.
This is the self sufficient period, but by no means self-centered. All the high qualities of Jupiter are intensified by the Sun's strong influence, often to the point of inspiration. Science, research and experimental work are furthered by the scholarly presence of Saturn (the task master), which here can be utilized to its best. Dangers are overworked, and no time for play. Find the time to spend with family and friends and cuddle up together!
Become one with fire's flames and feel alive!
Light & Love!
