Sagittarius decan 2 is ruled by the Moon and Mars (Aries Triplicty). The Sun undulates through the constellations of the Kneeling Man, the Serpent Bearer, the Bird Of Paradise, the Octan and the Southern Triangle from December 3 to 12. This decan seems to be about hidden knowledge and the importance of using it with integrity. It is vital for these subjects to keep in contact with nature and to respect natural law, because it seems if they do not they will suffer grave consequences. Nature seems to take a very dim few of these folk abusing the great power that they so obviously have.

Sagittarius decan 2 have come to this planet with a mission to remind us of the gnosis we have buried in our subconscious. They serve to tempt us with the forbidden fruit of the tree of knowledge. This could result in wonderful revelations or it could equally send us mad. It’s easy to see why this decan is one of the most feared of the zodiac. It has shades of Eris written all over it. One bite from her golden apple and you could start a Trojan war. Too many greedy bites and you could have a Kundalini awakening that you couldn’t handle because you were inadequately grounded.

The 13th Fairy & Gnosis

Those who have become entertainers in this decan have that extra magical allure that, added to their talent, makes them super-famous. Check out the list of ascendants! Some of them had so much power over the public that the dark side took them away from us before their time. Princess Diana was a good example of this. Souls that pick this decan to work with pick a very difficult, but ultimately the most rewarding, path. Sagittarius decan 2 probably agreed to work for the greater good, as guardians of humanity and enlighteners. But they also knew that there would be danger of being condemned, vilified and even killed for their attempts to bring occult knowledge into the public domain.

There are also astrologers in the list of celebrities who probably work with remembered knowledge from other lifetimes, again this knowledge make have been kept under wraps until the world was ready to receive and understand it. Tropical Sagittarius is known for its love of higher education and pioneering spirit. None of the stars of the archer lie here at all now. But interestingly this zone embraces the dates for what would be Ophuichus if we were to have thirteen signs…. (Continued in eBook)

The tarot card associated with this decan is the 9 of Wands.“you are committed to a cause and prepared to do anything for it. You are going to take this all the way and nothing or no one is going stop you.  You are determined to be the last man standing, the lone soldier, and know that you have the stamina it requires to resist and overcome all opposition.  Stoic and enduring, your strength and beliefs are admirable indeed.” This card describes the feeling of being willing to stand alone and be exiled if the cause is a rightious one. It shows the positive side of Sagittarius decan 2 in that it would rather be ethical and honest, than popular.” ~ teachmetarot

Sagittarius Decan 2 ~ Planets & Angles

Ascendant Sagittarius 2

Ras Algethi 16º ~ “presages both the good and bad sides of Saturn. When rising it can mean a wise and clever man, but can also indicate an individual trained in various tricks, a liar who deceives with different kinds of plots. ” [1] (Heliacal rising star) “To believe in the natural order, to be one who looks for the simple solutions to social issues; one who can bring harmony into their family. To look to nature for life’s solutions.” [2]

9 of WandsThe ascendant gives the purest expression of the decan’s energy, since no planets will colour its expression. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences above will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others. With Sagittarius decan 2 the ‘exiled’ effect will be most notable in love relationships. These folk seem to choose partners that force them to choose between their love life and their duty as a parent or child. The marriage they make may cause them to be exilled from their family or from their country of birth. However the exiled scenario with the partner will only be the most dramatic manifestation of this position. Instead sometimes Ascendant Sagittarius 2 prefers to stay single because their choice of partner would be too taboo or contraversial for the public.

Usually Ascendant Sagittarius 2 will be quite pleased to take on the role of someone who questions how the world is run and wants to make a difference. The more evolved souls will use their natural wisdom to educate the masses to the evils and injustices that they come across in their lives. Leonardo Di Vinci is a great example of the profound genius and inventiveness that consumed his soul, so much so that he never had time for a partner. Sometimes these folk deliberately choose a partner with a tainted reputation to stick two fingers up to the world or their prim parents. The most cunningly clever among these folk, will be deadly on a grand scale. Sagittarius can do great environmental work, but only if they keep themselves grounded and in touch with nature. If their idealism looses touch with 3D reality then the consequences can be dire. It is therefore safer for Sagittarius 2 to channel their ‘out there’ schemes into the arts rather than politics.

Sun Sagittarius 2

Ras Algethi 16º “ Seeking the natural order of life; looking for a balance in diet and life habits. A person sensitive to the environment, a lover of the natural world. The need to restore balance to a situation, laws or the economy.” [2]
Sabik 18º “Sincere, honorable, scientific, religious and philosophical interests, unorthodox or heretical, moral courage.” [7]

Here be heretics! It is quite difficult for these folk to find fame and fortune because, most average people just don’t ‘get’ them. They are seen as being the most eccentric of all the Sagittarians and can lose the plot totally if they don’t keep their connection to the natural world strong. It is vital for Sun Sagittarius 2 to eat good quality food, exercise and get plenty or fresh air and sunlight. If they consume too much plastic and EMFs they very easily fall into a deep depression. Losing their spiritual connection to nature is absolutely fatal for them. This is not an easy position for the Sun in a world that is constantly conspiring against these natural druids and the wisdom they hold. So what you might get here is a very genuine unmaterialisic soul, or conversely, a hyper-plastic person who doesn’t appear to even have a soul!

These folk can be moral crusaders and have great courage of their convictions. But in order for them to achieve anything at all they need to have a clear target. The most successful Sun Sagittarius 2’s will have a mission in life or will usually have a great passion for one topic. These are not multi-taskers and are quite binkered in their vision. Austin Coppock calls this decan ‘The Bridle’ which is very descriptive of the energy of this decan. The horse of this centaur really needs steering down a specific avenue, because it is quite hopeless if left just to wander about aimlessly. I believe that is why the list of famous native is actually quite small compared to other sections. These folk can so easily fall down rabbit holes or loose their way. Usually Sun Sagittarius 2’s failure is due to letting others confuse them so much, that they lose connection to their own, superior and very wise guidance system.

  1. While I often wonder if there is any need to compensate for sidereal or tropical considerations while reading the very profound articles published on Darkstar Astrology, I was blown away by the detailed information in this article. Writing now from a foreign country, here these past 12 years, away from my family and most importantly, my son, who I miss terribly. The choices I’ve made were the result of a bitter divorce where distance was the safer route. I’m 13* Sag Asc. I’m still curious, however, how to compensate for the difference in sidereal and tropical considerations when analyzing fixed star placements. Thank you for your hard work and keen insight.

    • Thanks, Sherryl, well I’m hoping this method does reconcile the two without losing from either system. Traditional astrology has always considered the fixed stars within the tropical system. For some reason, the use of fixed stars fell out of favour during the 1960s and 70’s.
