When it comes to moon signs, they are some of the most important factors in any natal chart. They can give you insight into your inner persona, to what guides you on a deeper, emotional level, and can even help you form more long-lasting relationships with people you are truly compatible with. But the moon has so much more in store for us than just that.
As it makes its journey across the sky, stopping only for a few days at a time in each sign, it also impacts all of us. No matter whether you already know the placement of all the factors in your natal chart, or you’re just getting started on the journey of deeper self-awareness, Birthdate Co. is here to help.
In this article, we dive deep into what the Sagittarius Moon can mean for you, and how you can work with it to become your best self.
What Traits Are Associated With People Who Have a Sagittarius Moon?
If the moon was located in Sagittarius when you were born, congrats! We’re willing to bet that you’re someone who loves adventure and is always looking out for the next, fun thing. People probably love to be around you, and for good reason.
Just like any other moon sign, the Sagittarius moon is associated with some specific traits and characteristics. While you may not identify with all of them, most of them will likely resonate with you on some level.
The biggest trait that defines most people born with a Sagittarius moon is their perpetual love for life. These people view everything in life as an opportunity and a new beginning. That also leads to being naturally more open when it comes to everything that gets thrown at them in life, and they are less likely to miss out on all that life has to offer. Here are some more traits that are specifically associated with people lucky enough to have a Sagittarius moon.
For better or for worse, people with their moon in Sagittarius tend to be bright, happy people. Some even argue that they are the happiest of everyone in the zodiac.
They don’t let anyone or anything hold them back, and they refuse to dwell on the negative side of life. They’re constantly on a search for ways to better themselves and, as long as they have a sense of freedom, they’ll smile their way through life (and make everyone else around them smile, too).
This sense of happiness isn’t just something that they show on the outside, it’s also something that they deeply feel on the inside.
The energy never runs low when you’re a Sagittarius moon. This doesn’t just refer to physical energy either, but emotional energy as well.
These people have an endless amount of enthusiasm and energy for discovering the world around them. In fact, you’ll very rarely see them sitting still because it has a tendency to make them feel antsy and even anxious.
The passion that comes along with that energy is also contagious. The lucky Sagittarius moon can transition something that they’re truly passionate about into something they can make into a lifelong career.
As we touched on earlier, the Sagittarius moon is also full of boundless optimism. When you’re around them, it’s nearly impossible to not let it rub off on you, too! While they can see the negative side of things, they don’t let that stop them from trying to reach their goals.
They’re also more than happy to have people join them on any of their adventures, as long as they don’t drag them down or hold them back.
Sagittarius Moon Is a Fire Sign
Just like having your sun in Sagittarius, having your moon in Sagittarius puts you solidly in the fire sign category. If the idea of the elements in the zodiac is confusing to you, let’s clear it up.
Each of the 12 zodiac signs falls into one of four elements: Earth, Air, Fire, or Water. That means each of the elements contains three signs, and those signs all have their own set of common characteristics.
When it comes to fire signs, we’re talking about Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. If you know much about the zodiac, you can already see what these signs have in common. Fire signs are often very passionate about life.
They can also be extremely competitive and tend to react to things without thinking. However, with all that “fire” also comes a spark of creativity, and inspiration that tends to come naturally to each of them.
Sagittarius Moon Is a “Mutable” Fire Sign
Inside of each element is three different subcategories to describe them—cardinal, fixed, and mutable. This is known as a sign’s modality. Where the sign falls in its element is how this is assigned, with cardinal being at the beginning of the season associated with the sign (Sagittarius is winter), fixed smack dab in the middle, and mutable at the end.
Because of their position in the season, mutable signs are seen as the most flexible. However, they can also be moody and fairly unpredictable.
Often, this is because they take their cues from the people around them or the environment that they find themselves in. A little mindfulness can go a long way toward learning to ground yourself and living more in your own skin.
How this impacts the Sagittarius moon is that they tend to be very socially flexible. Their outgoing nature is amplified by their ability to seamlessly blend into any group of people. As long as you hold strong to who you are, and what your core beliefs are, this is a huge advantage.
What Happens When the Moon Is in Sagittarius?
Whether or not you are a Sagittarius moon sign, when the moon makes its transit through Sagittarius it has a tendency to impact the way that you act and feel about life.
As we’ve learned, the moon has multiple phases. It also transits quickly across the sky, stopping for only a few days in each of the twelve zodiac signs. When it stops in Sagittarius, the usual Sagittarius traits are projected onto everyone.
How this is expressed is unique, and depends a lot on the normal characteristics of that sign. A Virgo, known for their practicality, and a Libra, known for their airy social nature, will experience the moon in Sagittarius in a different way.
When the moon is in Sagittarius, a good question to ask yourself is “why not?” It’s a great time to step outside of your normal comfort zone and take a chance. However, don’t be afraid to approach these situations with levity.
After all, life isn’t all that serious, and a Sagittarius moon is more than happy to remind you of that. The only thing you have to lose is what’s holding you back.
If you’re not used to that kind of energy, start small. Not every decision needs to be huge and life-changing. Even little changes, like changing your hair color or trying out a new outfit, can give you the confidence to make even bigger changes.
How To Honor a Sagittarius Moon
No matter what your astrological sign is, everyone loves candles. This is especially true for those who are considered to be fire signs, like Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.
Honoring how unique and special each of us is, and helping people to learn how to embrace their differences and learn to love exactly who they are, is part of why we designed our Birthdate Candle and The Birthdate Book (for those who want to get more in-depth).
We have designed 365 of them, each catered to a single day in the year. Not only are they created with a fragrance that was designed custom to represent the inner spirit of people who were born on that day, but they also come with a full personality description too!
And we don’t just stop at astrology. We also incorporate elements of the tarot and numerology, and each candle has a burning time of around 80 hours.
Light your candle, and commit to getting out of your comfort zone at least once this month. Life is too short to put things off for one minute longer. Honor the Sagittarius moon by putting just a little bit more optimism out in the universe, and watch how much it can change you. In fact, having dreams that you’re not trying to achieve can actually be bad for you!
When the moon is in Sagittarius, it’s a time for you to open up your mind and attempt things that you may have been too afraid to try before. If you have a Sagittarius moon, you’re probably already well aware of the tendency to see things optimistically and approach things with boundless enthusiasm and excitement. Stick with Birthdate Co. We’ll give you all the tools you need to understand yourself, and everyone around you, better than ever before.
