In 2023, Sagittarius Season begins on 22 November and ends on 21 December. Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius will remain in the Fixed Earth sign Taurus for the duration of Sagittarius Season. The Full Moon in Gemini is on 27 November, and the New Moon in Sagittarius is on 12 December.
So today, I thought we’d begin by looking at the Sagittarius energy Tarot cards. Then we’ll look at the Sagittarius Season Tarotscopes for all 12 Zodiac signs with a theme to contemplate for your Sun/Rising sign during this season. We are working with the Thoth Tarot for the Tarotscopes, and the illustrations for the Saggie energy cards are from the Rider Waite Smith Tarot.

Sagittarius Energy in the Tarot
So which are the Sagittarius energy cards in the Tarot? The Major Arcana card corresponding with Sagittarius is Temperance. In the Minor Arcana, we have the King of Wands and the 8-10 of Wands.
The Temperance card in the traditional Waite Smith Tarot deck embodies the essence and energy of Sagittarius through its symbolism. The card depicts an angelic figure standing with one foot on land and the other in water, symbolising the balance between the spiritual and the physical realms.
The Angel of Temperance pours water from one cup to another, representing the harmonious blending and integration of opposing elements. This mirrors the Sagittarian energy of seeking higher truth and wisdom, as Sagittarius is known for its philosophical and spiritual pursuits. There is also an element of magic and showmanship to the action of pouring the water diagonally rather than vertically.
The triangle on the angel’s robe symbolises the Element of Fire and signifies the connection between the divine and human realms, reflecting Sagittarius’ quest for truth and higher knowledge. Additionally, the wings of the angel symbolise freedom, expansion, and the ability to soar to new heights, which aligns with Sagittarius’ adventurous and optimistic nature.
The combination of Fire and Water in the Temperance card represents the union of opposing forces and the ability to find common ground and harmony. Fire represents the passionate and enthusiastic nature of Sagittarius individuals and indeed of Sagittarius Season, aka ‘the Festive Season.’
The King of Wands
The King of Wands in the Tarot is the court card that best embodies the energetic essence of Sagittarius. With his confident and enthusiastic demeanour, he represents the adventurous spirit, optimism, and leadership qualities associated with this Fire sign. Like Sagittarius, the King of Wands is driven by a strong sense of purpose and possesses a visionary mindset, always seeking new horizons to explore and conquer.
His ability to inspire and motivate others reflects the Sagittarian ability to uplift and bring out the best in those around them. This card encourages embracing spontaneity, taking bold actions, and embracing the fiery passion that lies within, reminding us to trust our instincts and fearlessly pursue our goals.
The 8 of Wands (Mercury in Sagittarius)
The 8 of Wands in the Tarot corresponds with Sagittarius energy by capturing its essence of movement, expansion, and forward momentum. This Mercury in Sagittarius energy card represents swift progress, quick action, important communication and the unfolding of opportunities.
Just as Sagittarius is known for its dynamic and adventurous nature, the 8 of Wands signifies a period of rapid growth and the manifestation of goals. It encourages us to focus our efforts, take bold steps, and trust in the journey ahead, for reaching our goals.
The 9 of Wands (Moon in Sagittarius)
The 9 of Wands in the Tarot aligns with the energetic essence of Sagittarius by reflecting its resilient and adventurous nature. This card symbolises the perseverance and determination that Sagittarius possesses. Just as the figure in the card stands tall, despite facing multiple challenges and obstacles, Sagittarius overcomes setbacks and keeps moving forward towards their goals.
This Moon in Sagittarius energy card reminds us to tap into our inner strength, embrace courage, and stay committed to our convictions, as we navigate through life’s journeys and pursue our passions with unwavering enthusiasm.
The 10 of Wands (Saturn in Sagittarius)
The 10 of Wands in the Tarot aligns with the energetic essence of Sagittarius, particularly during the festive season, by reflecting the burden of stress and overwhelm that can accompany this time of year. Corresponding with Saturn in Sagittarius, this card represents the responsibilities, obligations, and expectations that may weigh heavily on individuals during the holiday season.
Just as the figure in the card carries a heavy load of wands, Sagittarius individuals often find themselves juggling various commitments, social engagements, and cultural traditions. The 10 of Wands reminds us to set healthy boundaries, delegate tasks, and prioritise self-care to navigate the demands of the festive season with grace and relative ease.

Aries, you can expect a powerful surge of enhanced powers manifestation as symbolised by The Magus (The Magician). This season offers you the opportunity to tap into your innate abilities and create the life you desire.
However, the challenge lies in maintaining balance and fairness, as represented by Justice. It’s crucial to make decisions with integrity and consider the consequences of your actions, especially their impact on other people in your life.
The Knight of Disks (King of Pentacles) advises you to take practical and grounded steps towards your goals, focusing on stability and financial abundance. It will be important to pay attention to the details as you begin putting your plans into action. However, don’t allow perfectionist tendencies to trip you up.
Compassion will be a theme for you, Taurus, this Sagittarius Season. You can experience a harmonious balance in your relationships and tap into your intuition to make wise decisions. It is a time for you to seek emotional fulfilment and create a nurturing environment in your personal and professional life.
However, the challenge for Taurus during this season is presented by the presence of the 7 of Cups. This card signifies potential confusion, strong attachments and illusions that may cloud your judgment and hinder your ability to make clear choices.
To overcome these challenges, the action advice for Taurus is represented by the 5 of Disks/Pentacles. You must reach out for assistance without letting pride get in the way. By taking decisive action, seeking help when needed, and focusing on practical solutions, you will find stability and abundance this Sagittarius season. Remember, there is strength in vulnerability.
Gemini, the energy of victory and recognition aligns with your sign this Sagittarius Season, symbolised by the 6 of Wands. This period brings forth opportunities for you to shine and be acknowledged for your talents and achievements.
However, the challenge represented by the Ace of Cups encourages you to explore and connect with your feelings, and also to embrace humility and vulnerability. Keep your heart open! This may sound like a dichotomy but the Queen of Swords advises you to approach all choices and situations you face this month with rational thinking.
Use your innate Gemini prowess to make intelligent decisions and communicate effectively. It’s all about finding the balance between your intellect and emotions to achieve even more success in the weeks ahead.
Dear Cancer, this Sagittarius Season, flexibility, adaptability and making decisions on the fly may become your superpowers. Do not allow negative thoughts or worries, represented by the 10 of Swords, to defeat you. You’ve got this!
The action advice of the 9 of Wands urges you to tap into your resilience and inner strength, allowing you to overcome any temporary glitches and persevere. By embracing their determination and courage, you will find the stability and courage needed to navigate this season successfully.
What we see here is the possibility of making some serious progress if you do not allow self-doubts and negativity to hold you back. Yes, your stress levels may go up during the festive season but focus on what you aim to achieve rather than on the past or trying to control everything. Start working on those positive affirmations today!
During Sagittarius Season, you can expect an opportunity to sow the seeds of increased abundance symbolised by the Ace of Disks/Pentacles, Leo. This is a time for you to tap into your creative potential, embrace new opportunities, and manifest prosperity in all aspects of your life.
However, the challenge represented by The Devil could indicate a need to overcome any unhealthy attachments or negative patterns that may hinder the seeds of abundance that you plant from taking root.
The action advice comes from The Universe/World card, inspiring you to embrace transformation, celebrate what you have achieved so far, tie up loose ends (quit bad habits), and seek a broader perspective on your goals. By freeing yourself from limitations and embracing the abundance that awaits, you can truly shine during Sagittarius season.
Virgo, you may experience a powerful surge of energy and potential during this Sagittarius Season. The theme for this season is represented by the 2 of Wands, encouraging you to embrace your inner pioneer and explore new horizons of possibility.
The challenge lies in embodying the qualities of the Gemini King of Swords (Knight in the Thoth system). This card urges you to approach decisions by weighing up both sides of the argument carefully and not charging ahead until you have weighed up the pros and cons.
The action advice comes from The Magician/Magus, calling upon you to tap into their innate abilities, harness their creative power, and manifest their desires with confidence and intentional action. Overall, these cards point to assuming more of a leadership role in the weeks ahead.
Dear Libra, that feeling of being stuck in a rut is about to shift radically for you. But not before you feel in limbo, unable to move forward, for a while. The Universe is intentionally putting you on hold so that you can become still and gain a new perspective on what is happening in your life.
Do not fight this. Surrender to the void and settle into the silence. Then you will see clearly that you are free to choose to simply leave the old behind and begin your next new adventure as per The Fool.
The main challenge for you this Sagittarius Season is to have the courage to sacrifice whatever you like to occupy your time with in favour of deep rest and meditation. Turn off all gadgets and behold the miracle of your innate infinite intelligence and creativity coming back online. Your only regret will be that you didn’t do it sooner.
It’s all about the money for you this Saggie Season, dear Scorpio. For some of you, this will mean making decisions about how to handle paying off loans, paying bills on time and managing what is left over after that. But for at least one or two of you, it may mean handling larger sums of money and investing them wisely for the future.
Either way, it is important to have a long-term view of how you deal with finances this month. Fair distribution is important, especially in terms of making sure that younger generations are provided for. Hence, don’t fall for the temptation to blow a lot of money on seasonal gifts.
There could also be a temptation to use your financial resources only on yourself with the 9 of Disks/Pentacles as the challenge. Remember that generosity and gratitude are what open the floodgates of abundance.
Happy Birthday, Sagittarius! This is your Season and you are worthy of a celebration, for sure. But first, we must acknowledge that this year has not been easy. And that is probably true for many of the people in your life too. While this may make you less inclined to celebrate than usual, a big celebration may turn out to be just the ticket to help everyone heal and move on from the heartaches of this year.
So get your party planning committee together and make sure that everyone gets to see or hear something new, something that encourages them and gives them hope. Because, dear Sag, encouragement is one of your superpowers. And the more you lavish it on others, the happier you become yourself!
One of the best birthday presents you can give yourself is a trip somewhere new, or at least somewhere you haven’t been for a while. You need new scenery around you, stat! It doesn’t have to be some far-flung place either. It’s changing things up that matters.
During the Sagittarius season, you can expect a surge of creative and passionate energy, dear Capricorn. The Ace of Wands presents an opportunity to embrace new beginnings and take bold actions in pursuit of your goals. However, the challenge lies in navigating the inner landscape of the Page of Swords, which is very much about asking all the right questions of yourself. If you’ve been slacking on your journal writing/morning pages, now is a good time to pick that habit back up.
Because the action advice coming from the Queen of Cups means that you can tap into your emotional intelligence and intuition. This is how you will know how to direct the surge of creative energy in the weeks ahead, whether this is about a new career project or a new/rekindled relationship.
For some of you, at least, this Saggie Season will bring some new friendships that have the potential to energise and inspire you.
Aquarius, you can expect a significant period of self-reflection and evaluation this Sagittarius Season. Judgement/The Aeon emphasises the need to make important, potentially life-changing, decisions and draw a line under the past in at least one area of your life.
However, the challenge lies in balancing collaboration and individuality, as represented by the 3 of Pentacles/Disks. It is essential to find harmony between working with others and maintaining your unique perspective.
The 2 of Wands offers action advice that encourages you to take bold, decisive action. Once you have made your mind up, there will be precious little time to dawdle. A complete career change could be on the menu, maybe as a self-employed person.
If you’ve been wondering what’s been stifling your creativity lately, Pisces, Saggie Season is about to open your eyes. You forgot how to allow yourself to dream, fantasise and daydream. All three are so very important to your Pisces soul/psyche. The whole ‘all work and no play’ scenario is not only depriving you of creative juju; it’s lowering your overall energy levels and joie de vivre.
So, over the next few weeks, once you allow yourself to get into the spirit of the festive season, allow your big-eyed inner child to come out and play. Sure, there will still be chores to do but that’s not what you’re here for so they shouldn’t be your primary concern.
Remember who you are so that you can bring the world what it needs. Dream on and dream big, like the Princess/Page of Cups!
