The irony of a photo challenge during Sagittarius season doesn’t escape me. As if we needed one MORE thing on our proverbial plates! However, here is just such a photo challenge, created with the astronerdery-inclined in mind! In honor of Jupiter entering Sagittarius just in time for Sagittarius season, why not do MORE during the busy holiday season that is upon us? #gluttony
The list I have created focuses primarily on Sagittarian happenings in our cosmosphere, with a few other important astro-weather notes sprinkled in to add a little spice. In the list below, I have separated the 30 days into 3 sets of 10, as the decans are separated (if you don’t know what that means, don’t worry- it doesn’t affect the rest of the info much; it’s just an added layer for those in the know who like to go the extra-nerdy mile!).
I expound upon all of the photo prompts below, giving you some ideas of what you might post for each prompt, which means they can also serve as your Astro-weather forecast for the season! If you like having these mini-morsels of daily astro-weather, then stay tuned for upcoming offerings of mine! You’re gonna love them. <3 Sign up for my newsletter HERE to catch the astro-weather news and to stay in touch!
I have provided a shorthand version of this list at the end of the post, for your convenience. To play along, head over to INSTAGRAM and follow me @beautifulastrology and use/follow the hashtag #supersagittarius2018. The game is happening on Instagram, but because I aim for inclusion, I’ll share a few images on Facebook for those of you who are not ‘grammers. ‘Cause, hey- we don’t all ‘gram. Amiright?*
And, here's the best part!
When you follow me on Instagram AND use the hashtag #supersagittarius2018, you will be entered to win a FREE READING! I will choose one post from each decan (basically, that's every 10 days of Sag' season), so that means you have THREE different phases during which you could win! Maybe you'll win all three!
I'll choose whichever post was my favorite from that round. :)
All you have to do to be entered to win a free reading is:
1) Follow me on Instagram
2) post your pics on Instagram, explaining how they relate to the prompt, and
3) use the hashtag #supersagittarius2018!
Read on to get more info about each of the photo challenge prompts...
And, now- without further ado… *drum roll*
#SUPERSAGITTARIUS2018 Photo ‘Challenge’ Prompts for SAG’ Season 2018!!!
The SUN in the 1st DECAN of SAGITTARIUS (ruled by Jupiter/Mercury= BIG IDEAS!!)
Nov 22: Full Moon Feast -
HAPPY THANKSGIVING IN THE US! Even if you’re not in the US, why not indulge in a Full Moon Feast as the Sun enters Sagittarius? Sag’ it up with all your friends! You’ll be glad you did. (Or, maybe you won’t, but it should be pretty fun while it lasts…) SHOW US YOUR FEAST!
Nov 23: Leftover Restlessness -
The Moon is still in Gemini, so you may be itching to just get out of the house. Go ahead! But make sure to eat some delicious leftovers, first. So easy! I wanna see your leftover creations!
Nov 24: Escape to the Movies -
Neptune stations direct, today. Celebrate the grand illusions of life by going to the movies! Post a pic of your tix, your movie-going comrades, or a catch of the big screen! Whatchyou watchin’?!
Nov 25: “BAKE!” -
The Sun conjoins Jupiter on this St. Catherine’s day, making it a great day to bake something big and amazing (and maybe foreign) to generously share with everybody!!! Can’t wait to see what you make! Ready? Set… “BAKE!” (And post!!)
Nov 26: Them’s fightin’ words! -
Mercury squares Mars today. There may be some dynamic, passionate communication at hand. Hopefully, everything smooths over easily, though it may take some serious work. If you can work it all out in a play-fight, show us that- that sounds fun. <3
Nov 27: REALLY? TELL ME MORE! -
Mercury conjoins the Sun and then moves along to conjoin Jupiter. There is a big, bright light on all of the ideas pouring out of the mouths today! Listen, listen and/or have your say! Tell us which way you choose and how it works out for you. Show off your gab (or your gab-reception or gab-blocking skills! ha!).
Nov 28: Pure Sagittarius -
If you believe certain astro-calendars, there are no major aspects today. So, just bask in the Sag’-i-ness of it all. Show us your writing/reading/thinking/traveling/animal-loving ways.
Nov 29: Writing in our Journals -
The moon squares Mercury and then Jupiter. It feels like a great time to write instead of talk… Show off your current journal/paper/pen love(s) and/or your fave journaling location.
Nov 30: Day of Diviniation -
Venus opposes Uranus today. Could be dramatic. I recommend gaining insight by doing some divination. Some ideas: horary, tarot, runes, bibliomancy, or augury! Show us what you pick!
Dec 1: The Advent of Truth -
Wow: Mercury enters Scorpio for some truth-telling mojo. The Moon sextiles Mercury and then Jupiter for some straight-talking and big feels! Show us your face on this day of Clarity — or if you have confusion going on- go with that! Whatever is true for your right now. It's so nice to see you in your truth! <3
The SUN in the 2nd DECAN of SAGITTARIUS (ruled by the Moon/Mars=ACT ON FEELINGS!)
Dec 2: Mars upon Thars -
Venus moves back into Scorpio today, ruled by Mars, who is squared by the Sun. Mars is ‘up’ today, vicariously, then… So, we’ve all got a little Mars upon Thars. What might this look like? Idk- spicy food? pickin’ fights? crying? tender acts of compassion? Show us so we know!
Dec 3: Second Gate of Inanna -
The Moon and Venus get together today, perhaps you’ll see them? If you do catch a glimpse, you can show us how it looks from where you are. It really is lovely. If not, consider how you might be able to ‘see in the dark’ and share something about that. (It’s a metaphor, people, but if you’re one of those literal types, well… do your thang!) Whatever you do - show us! We wanna see!
Dec 4: Forcing blooms -
Apparently, Dec. 4th is St. Barbara’s day and is traditionally a good day to bring in some fruit tree branches to ‘force’ to bloom by putting them in a vase of water in your warm winter home. Try it! Let’s see your branch bouquets!
Dec 5: Dream Report -
The Moon conjoins Mercury for some good thinking/talking time, while the Sun squares Neptune, bringing forth tensions in our dreams/ideals. It might be a great time to process any dreams or visions you have with someone who can hold space for such a thing. Show us your chatting partner, your dream journal, your cozy bed, or a drawing of your dream/s! Can’t wait to witness the most special, secret part of your inner world!
Dec 6: Generous Intentions -
For Saint Nicholas’ Day, we have a New Moon in Sagittarius, the Moon conjoining Jupiter, and Mercury stationing direct! *whew!* Saint Nicholas and Jupiter both are related to the Santa Claus archetype and this New Moon in their sign is a great time to set intentions for manifesting their jubilant generosity in the world. Show us your New Moon altar, your favorite Santa/St. Nick figurine, an act of kindness in progress, or something representing your own Generosity Intentions. I am particularly excited to see what everyone shares today! Serotonin release galore! Because, anytime you give, receive, or even witness a kindness, it makes each one involved feel good. That’s a win-win-win-win as far as I’m concerned. Get out there and give it!
Dec 7: Turning bad luck into good -
Well, there may be some kind of disillusionment today with Mars conjoining Neptune in Pisces. It could be a day for compassionate action (remember those intentions you made yesterday)? And, the moon is still in lucky Sagittarius, which should offer some luck-support. Do you have any tricks for turning bad luck into good? Or lucky talismans? Show them off (if they don’t mind)!
Dec 8: Don’t go crazy. ORGANIZE! -
The Moon trines Uranus and then conjoins Saturn. Channel that flowing zazz right into orderly productivity! Whether it’s your sock drawer or large-scale activism. GET IT IN ORDER! And show us what it all looks like!
Dec 9: Deep Dinner Conversations -
Moon conjunct Pluto this evening. Whether you dine early or late (or… if you’re on the other side of the world from me -here in Portland, OR- perhaps this will be your brekky convo!?), you are bound to find some depth in the matter. Hopefully, you don’t cry on your plate, but come to know yourself more deeply. Show us your meal or whatever you were doing when you got to this place… *ahem* …within reason. ;)
Dec 10: Mail Day! -
Moon sextiles Mercury making it a great day to let the messenger assist you in sending your kind words or trinkets in the mail! Show us what you’re mailing, where you’re mailing it, how cute your stamps are, or how freaking long the line at the post office is (<but, I hope it isn’t)!
Dec 11: Party! -
Moon square Venus and sextile Jupiter. The moon brings light from Venus to Jupiter, who are both benefics. Venus is a personal planet who likes to socialize and Jupiter is a social planet who likes expansion, particularly when it is in Sagittarius! Show us your gatherings (or at least your invitations)!
The SUN in the 3rd DECAN of SAGITTARIUS (ruled by Saturn/Sun= SHINE BRIGHTLY!)
Dec 12: Checking that list TWICE! -
Mercury into Sagittarius today! Expansion of thinking, writing, even publishing. And shopping? Whatever expansive exchange you are up to today- show us that! :)
Dec 13: Blackest Night for Banishing -
Moon squares Mercury then Jupiter. Get rid of the spirits you don’t want around. It’s tradition! Also: meteor showers tonight, if you happen to be up late. Show us your blackest night!
Dec 14: Sugar Plum Fairy & Nutcracker -
Moon conjunct Neptune, Moon conjunct Mars. These moon transits remind me of the dreamy Sugar Plum Fairy and the martian Nutcracker. Hopefully, the moon brings you these kinds of friends today. Show us your Sugar Plum Fairy and/or Nutcracker- however they come to you!
Dec 15: Visions of Sugar Plums -
Moon trine Mercury. When the Moon and Mercury are talking, our ideas are flowing. Perhaps you are writing the next famous poem? Or simply enjoying little details, such as sugar plums (whatever those are). Show us your sweet treats or dreams of what’s to come!
Dec 16: Beautiful Ugly? -
Venus sextile Saturn (beautiful), Mars sextile Pluto (ugly?). Formal infringement? There is something about beauty and precision that later moves to intense action. I’m honestly not getting a clear idea of what this will be like. I guess we’ll know when we get there. Whatever it is, show us in a pic! I wonder what our collective theme will be? Let’s see!
Dec 17: Saturnalia, Baby -
Moon conjunct Uranus. Time to go wild. That’s what Saturnalia is for. Perfect! Show us your wild side!!!
Dec 18: It’s STILL Saturnalia! -
Nothing new of note, but it’s STILL Saturnalia! You *must* have more wild in you, yes? Now's your time to shine! Show it off, y'all!
Dec 19: Saturnalia lasts a while, you know… -
Srsly. It does! It's like a whole week of 'in-between' revelry! Get your crazies out, y'all! Now's your chance! More wild! More wild! Are you drowning in presents or cookies or food? Or… maybe you’re getting tired from all of the fun!? Show us the madness: piles of gifts under the tree? Or show us how you recover from it all: hot cocoa by the fire? Or show us both if you like! Or even your *extra* wild and crazy side? It's up to you!
Dec 20: LAST HURRAH! -
Woah: Moon into Gemini. Sun trine Uranus. Moon opposite Mercury. Moon opposite Jupiter! So, it often seems that when planets get to the 29th degree of a sign, they kind of show off with a ‘last hurrah’ before they depart. The Sun’s last full day is today and not only does it jive with electrifying, surprising Uranus, but it has a lot of lunar support as the Moon moves back into restless Gemini and dynamically opposes both Mercury AND Jupiter!! Hmmm… Maybe you’re having second thoughts about some of the gifts you bought and want to return them? Or… maybe it’s just pure madness as we all ‘race to the finish line’, that for many is Christmas in several more days. For some, though, today really is the last hurrah! Tomorrow is Solstice! You may fall in one camp or both, and whichever it is: show us the madness! :) We’ll all be mad together. <3
Dec 21: Smudging Night/Winter Solstice - (Saturnalia ends in 2 days…)
Mercury conjunct Jupiter. Sun into Capricorn tonight. Winter Solstice! Smudging nights. Mercury conjoins Jupiter for some ‘big talkin’ and the Sun moves out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn, signaling the end of the madness that is the holiday season and entering the aftermath, full of new year’s resolutions, belt-tightening, and the sloughing of so much holiday decor and detritus. Welcome to the other side. Last chance to share in this challenge! Show us your best Christmas or Solstice decor and remember that tonight is a great night for smudging.
And, speaking of New Year’s Resolutions, stick with me if you want an Astrologically-informed way to figure out what those can look like that doesn’t necessarily fit with the conventional approch. Sign up for my newsletter, HERE, to stay informed!
