The Moon in Sagittarius' impulse towards freedom is intense, and they need emotional, physical, mental and spiritual space. As a Jupiter ruled sign, they always need to keep their options open in life, and usually hate to feel trapped. The Moon in this position must feel free to come and go as they please. One of their most fundamental needs is to feel unrestricted to experience life to its fullest.
Everyday existence needs to contain plenty of exciting new adventures and opportunities. However, those with the Moon in Sagittarius can restlessly move from one activity to the next, always searching for something more. This tendency often leads to a scattering of energies and not finishing what has been started. Sagittarius is the sign of travel, both in the physical and mental realm, and those with the Moon placed in this zodiacal area of the chart need lots of activity in physical endeavours or in the intellectual realm.
Many Sagittarians are fond of the outdoors, animals and travelling to new places. If they can’t travel the urge is usually satisfied through reading and watching T.V about faraway lands. The Moon in Sagittarius is eager to expand its understanding of the world, through travelling, seeking knowledge, and broadening their perspective. They have a large and generous heart, and need to believe in the bounty of existence. The Moon here is also concerned more with abstract ideals, intellectualizing and philosophizing rather than focusing on their current situation.
Sagittarius is prone to throwing off the weight of responsibility, and obligation, and these natives enjoy learning and spreading knowledge; they are natural students, and are attracted to reading, writing, publishing, advertising, entertainment and publicity. Those with the Moon here make excellent guides and teachers, and working in education, anything involving passing on information. There is a need for a distinct belief system, and it may not be conventional or traditional.
Freedom is important to Sagittarius for very special reasons. It is not an ideologically based claim. Sagittarius doesn’t go around with a Bill of rights in hand as Aquarius might, saying, “Freedom is an inalienable human right!” Nor is it fear of emotional involvement, as some people might think. Sagittarius does not back off from intense emotion. But it may back off from commitment which closes the door to new possibilities…It is almost as if the heavens are strewn with magical glyphs, and life is like a treasure hunt. One tries to work out what a particular experience means, and what it is supposed to be teaching, and how one can grow from it. Once that experience has wrung dry, and then one finds the next clue in the next experience. Hopefully, one day it will all be revealed, which, of course, it never is. The design just gets larger and larger. Barriers and Boundaries: The Horoscope and the Defences of the Personality
Sagittarius is a frank sign, and expresses itself honestly and with humour. Those with the Moon in this fiery zodiacal area will probably be socially extroverted, enjoying intellectual company, and they are very generous towards friends. However, they are one of the signs that becomes the most bored if they have to spend everyday in the same company.
The Moon in Sagittarius will often feel lucky, fortunate and blessed, but they need to be careful that they don’t promise more than they can deliver. Lyn Birkbeck calls those with the Moon in this in position as having the soul of a gypsy. As a fire sign they are very passionate, enthusiastic, and like to feel alive and active. Truth is an integral part of their lives, and they find comfort through higher knowledge and knowing they have are an essential part of a larger plan.
