Wanna Rebel? Sagittarius Season Is the Perfect Time!
Throughout November and December, your calendar will undoubtedly be packed with festivities galore from work holiday parties to family gatherings and reunions with friends. This social season, brimming with delicious, comfort food and sparkly, celebratory drinks, owes some of its joyful vibes to Sagittarius season. From November 22 to December 21, the sun will be in the mutable fire sign, ruled by Jupiter, the planet of luck and abundance.
Sag is also the ruler of the ninth house, associated with adventure, higher learning, and philosophy. This goes hand-in-hand with the Sag’s free-spirited vibe and endless drive to explore, understand different cultures, and get out of any kind of comfort zone—and into the world.

For that reason, it’s no surprise that Sagittarius season will inspire you to break out of a rut you may be in and immerse yourself in joyful, illuminating experiences—especially the kind that will make you feel even more comfortable in your own unique skin. The fiery, adventurous spirit of this time of year also inspires us to have fun, be creative, and strike out on your own in an empowered, dynamic way.
Here, what each sign can do to push their own boundaries and walk their own path, in the spirit of Sag season. (Be sure to read your rising sign, too!)
Aries (March 21–April 19)
As a natural-born go-getter, Sag season was made for you, as the sun will be moving through your ninth house of adventure. Now’s the time to plan that long-distance trip you’ve been fantasizing about for eons, or think big about the ways higher education might allow you to advance your career. The key to success will be forging whichever path feels right to you in your gut.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Of course you enjoy cuddle time with your S.O. or friend with benefits, but while the sun moves through your eighth house of sexual intimacy, you might feel like getting even closer by experimenting in bed. Switching up your usual routine can be challenging, but identifying your desires and voicing them now can make for an especially hot, heavy, and eye-opening experience.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
As a spontaneity-loving air sign, you’re nothing without your freedom, but while the sun is moving through your seventh house of partnership, you’ll do well to challenge any underlying fear of intimacy and solidify a commitment to a mate or colleague. Yes, you and he or she can totally can set your own boundaries in a way that makes your heart race and feels uplifting and empowering as opposed to oppressive.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Your focus may be on revising your daily schedule in a way that bolsters your mind-body balance, thanks to the sun’s journey through your sixth house of health and routine. Though you may default to the status quo, being bold and assertive (think working from home or building in time for mid-day yoga) now can not only deliver concrete results but also have you feeling more centered.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Stepping up your game as a lover is a challenge you’re always up for, and while the sun is in Sag and your fifth house of romance, push yourself to be a bit more open-minded. You’ll do well to avoid that set idea of what date night or a romp between the sheets with a partner should look like. Instead, spontaneity, taking a creative, light-hearted approach, and focusing on fun are all themes that could make this season full of sexy magic for you.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Spending time with loved ones is a given this season, especially with the sun traveling through your fourth house of home life. It’s easy for you to get hung up on the specifics of any gathering—be it the Thanksgiving dinner menu or the itinerary for wine night with old friends. A little planning can be helpful, but this is also a chance to work on going with the flow. You’ll find jovial moments and vibrant conversations develop on their own.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
This time of year is especially gratifying to you as a social butterfly, but there’s a twist: The sun’s move through your third house of communication during Sag season may inspire you to be a bit more direct than usual. If you’ve been holding off on having a tough conversation with a loved one or sharing your aspirations with a higher-up, bite the bullet. It’s not just OK to put yourself first and express your needs. It’s necessary for that balance you perpetually seek.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
You are all about getting all your ducks in a row and making well-calculated decisions when it comes to money, but while the sun’s journey takes it through your second house of income, you might do well to be bold and take a risk or two. Pitch that project you’ve had your heart set on, or take that meeting that could lead to a new side hustle. Leaping without sufficient investigation may feel a bit bizarre, but if anyone’s intuition is on-point, it’s yours.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
You may be feeling even more ready to take on the world than usual while the sun moves through your first house of self. Don’t hesitate to go after your wildest dreams now, but because you’re the master of boundary-pushing (or TBH, sometimes lacking boundaries altogether!), it wouldn’t hurt to focus your energies on a specific, realistic goal. Though you’re most comfortable with the big picture vision, breaking it down into a step-by-step action plan means you’ll definitely get the results you have your heart set on.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
You’re always thinking in terms of facts, logic, and concrete, pragmatic goals that you know you can achieve slowly and steadily, but while the sun moves through your twelfth house of spirituality, try to boost your comfort level with the unknown. Whether you’re meditating, journaling, experimenting with Reiki, aromatherapy, or crystals, experimenting with mind-body routines that allow you to better identify your mental and emotional needs now could have you feeling even more focused and confident.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Spending time with friends and coworkers on team projects is your forte, as a social, humanitarian air sign, but you’re still a fixed sign that likes your social time to look a certain way. During Sag season, while the sun moves through your eleventh house of networking, consider working or bonding with others in a whole new way (like meeting with friends to volunteer at a soup kitchen or doing a brainstorm with colleagues on a hike). You’ll broaden your horizons and bolster your connections.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Bringing your creative vision to the table comes naturally to you as an artistic water sign, but while the sun lights up your tenth house of career this Sag season, you’ll want to experiment with taking a less attached, more playful approach to pitching. The fact is that not every smart idea you share will land, but it’s not personal. The more quickly you can get back on the horse and put your beautiful mind to use, the more likely higher-ups will jump on-board with one or several of your brilliant ideas, and you’ll get the recognition you deserve!
