Sagittarius is rumored to be the “lucky” sign of the zodiac and it’s true that people with a lot of Sagittarius in their chart (or people who have Sagittarius’ ruler, Jupiter, placed strongly) tend to get their way an awful lot in life. Today I thought I’d write about why this is, and how anyone who doesn’t think of themselves as typically lucky can become so. As you’ll see, luck is not a gift of God, it’s a way of being that results from specific habits—habits which can be understood and practiced until they become natural.
What do I mean by a lucky person? Someone who . . .
- easily attracts good things, people and experiences
- just seems to have things go their way, sometimes without really trying
- has a lot of friends and resources
- is well-liked and well-received
- is often in a good mood, cheerful and upbeat
- . . . and who takes all this in stride, as if this is just how life is.
In the life of a “lucky” person, Jupiter, known to astrologers as the “greater benefic,” is at work. Jupiter is the astrological cornucopia of goodness and knowing how to work with its energies can open up endless possibilities.
If you examine the phenomenon of “luck” closely and you look at the habits and behaviors of Sagittarians, you’ll quickly see that it’s no coincidence that Sagittarians are lucky. It’s actually by design. There are things Sagittarians do that attract good things into their lives, and these are things you can do, on purpose. What are those things?
Sagittarians are gregarious. They are very social creatures and they spread themselves out over large groups of people, mixing with many different kinds of people and forming connections within and between communities. In their social interactions, Sagittarians are tolerant. They not only tolerate the differences between people (both individual and cultural), but they actually enjoy those differences. They are pleasantly stimulated by talking with someone from a different background or perspective. They don’t respond by feeling threatened, afraid or invaded. Instead they are interested and curious. Therefore, they have a way of inviting others to open up and express themselves. Jupiter-touched people are socially welcoming.
Sagittarians know that opportunities must be spotted and pounced on. They are alert to possibilities and ready to follow up when something arises. They know that opportunities do not arrive ready-made and that a seemingly imperfect opportunity may be turned into a perfect one with the right kind of cultivation. When presented with lemons, what they actually see is lemonade-in-the-making, and that vision of possibility is what they respond to. They respond with gladness and praise, which makes the lemons want to become lemonade, speeding the process.
Sagittarians see themselves as part of something greater. This makes them helpful and cooperative. They have no ego invested in not asking for help. They are willing to ask because they know that they have something to give back. Sagittarians are aware of their good traits and have self-confidence. Since they know they have something to contribute, they are comfortable taking. This, to them, is all just part of the grand design: sometimes you give, sometimes you take. They are comfortable with both sides of the transaction. This makes them generous. They enjoy giving. They like the way it spreads resources around. They like having a positive impact on your life.
Take a minute to think about how you live out these ways of being and how they positively impact your life, and the lives of others. Read on for more Sagittarian “lucky” habits.
