It is said that luck favors Sagittarius, but I don’t necessarily believe this to be true. At least as far as the typical definition of “luck” goes: “success or failure apparently brought by chance rather than through one’s own actions.” I can’t think of a single Sagittarius in my life with a good head on their shoulders who isn’t a hard worker. They are also some of the most successful people I know, but their success wasn’t granted from a lucky fairy godmother or other supernatural being. Their success comes from their passion and natural drive to do the things they love and to do them well. It seems Sagittarius doesn’t need to put in any extra effort to succeed because they learn and improve quickly. It’s that definition of luck, the one of natural gifts granted to a person, that I want to talk about today.
Whether or not we are aware, we all possess some kind of gift. Some of us are lucky to know exactly what that is and might have known from an early age. Some of us are just putting the pieces together and seeing what we can offer to the world. And some of us still haven’t realized the gifts that we posses. Some gifts are easier than others to come into. Playing piano from an early age might seem to be easier than making scientific discoveries, but both are just as important. When one realizes their gift and shares it with the world, they can feel a sense of purpose and fulfillment that might otherwise be difficult to obtain.
It’s important to remember that our gifts are ours to give out only if we want to, too. And they absolutely do not need to be monetizable. Your gift could be doing amazing nail art when you give yourself a manicure at home, your personal prayer practice, or making fresh pasta for your family. We have the sovereignty to grant consent as to when and where we share our gifts with anyone else. Our gifts are the things that fulfill and energize us, and they are not for others to determine or capitalize on.
On this Sagittarius Full Moon, take some time to explore your gifts. Ask yourself the following questions:
- What are the activities that energize me? When do I feel fulfilled?
- Why do these activities energize and fulfill me? What needs of mine to they meet?
- Are there ways I can expand these activities to do them more frequently or incorporate them in other areas of my life?
- Are there similar activities I can explore to meet my needs but try something new?
- Am I called to share these things with others? Why? Would it make it more fulfilling and energizing?
