The Sun enters the sign of The Archer on 22nd November and the mythic nature of the journey of the Sun through the heavens shifts from the passage through the darkness of the underworld to the pursuit of light and meaning. From the depths of the hidden and intense inner landscape of the Scorpion to the heavenly heights of Sagittarius, the sign of mutable fire encourages us to take a leap of faith out of the darkness into the world beyond form and feeling. Fire is naturally drawn to the celestial realm of archetypal and symbolic forms and to the dimension that speaks to our spiritual natures. This is the sign of the questing and journeying soul who moves ever onward in search of meaning and truth, delighted by the exotic and unfamiliar, encouraged by the attraction of the unknown and eternally optimistic of finding that which provides spiritual and meaningful sustenance. At this time of year, we are drawn on through the darkness of the long cold nights as we raise our gaze and are guided by the myriad stars bejewelling the high vault of heaven. We are attracted and enchanted too, by the animated sparks and bright writhing flames of the hearth fires and bonfires, enlivened by their elemental salamanders, as we embrace the warm orange light and watch the shapes and colours shift and change and follow the images arising in the fire. Here we travel in mind as well as body as we seek and adventure towards the renewal of light.
