Essential Oils for Your Astrological Sign: Sagittarius
Leaving behind the intense and emotionally exhausting season of Scorpio, the sun moves into Sagittarius, a time for optimism, cheerfulness, and adventure. Sagittarius season is a fast-paced time that is all about trying new things and enjoying ourselves. We can use this refreshing upbeat energy to push ourselves to take risks and have fun.
Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the zodiac and is a mutable fire sign ruled by Jupiter. The mutability of the sign gives them a need for freedom and independence while also making them highly intelligent. Being a fire sign, Sagittarius is characterized by impulsiveness and impatience. Sagittarius is symbolized by an archer and centaur which are known to be intelligent and highly regarded but also hotheaded and impractical. Being ruled by Jupiter gives Sagittarians the ability to manifest the things they want in life. Their positive thinking and a strong sense of self-worth help them to materialize their goals and desires because they feel as though they are worthy of them. Sagittarians are adventurous and love their freedom, also thanks to the influence from Jupiter. They want to truly experience the world around them and live through action, encouraging others to do the same. They enjoy traveling and exploring new places and love to immerse themselves in the local culture of the places they visit. Any activity or adventure with an element of risk is especially enticing to them. Sagittarians gain more pleasure from experiences gained despite the risks or obstacles along the way. Because of their confidence and impulsiveness, those with a Sagittarius placement can sometimes rush into new things too quickly and commit themselves to too many obligations at once. This can often lead them to be stressed and overwhelmed from spreading their energy and time too thin. Charming and intelligent, Sagittarians are great friends and always fun to talk with. They are often natural comedians and the life of any party that they may attend, drawing a crowd to hear their stories. Sagittarius is known for creating great communicators but they can sometimes let the excitement get the best of them and speak before thinking. They are not usually ones to intentionally deceive, but will sometimes stretch the truth or exaggerate details to support their idea or embellish a story.
Those with a Sagittarius placement live life to the fullest and love collecting new experiences and entertaining new people. They may sometimes get caught up in this fast and free lifestyle and need help coming back down to earth. Essential oils have long been used to help us complement or balance out different aspects of our mind and spirit and can be used in aromatherapy and topical applications for those purposes.
