Sagittarius Decan 2 ~ Dec 3 to 12 (10º-20º)

Sagittarius decan 2

Sagittarius decan 2 is ruled by the Moon. 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.

The 13th Fairy & Gnosis

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. Bite from her golden apple and you could start a Trojan war. Another possibility is you could have a Kundalini awakening that you can’t handle because you were inadequately grounded.

  1. Thank you again Marina for the work you do & all the knowledge you share on this site.

    Recently you have posted about the Nodes & how they are interacting with planets. For instance Mars trines the North Node on 24 December. How do we relate a sign’s degree in our North Node?

    Similar to how the Sun, Ascendant, Moon read & flavor the essence of self? Or does the degree only speak or a persons Higher Self/ Evolution / Destiny one is meant to fulfill?

    Example:My North Node is at 19:26 Sag in my 7th. Since Mars is trining the N.Node on 24 December would that mean an energetic pursuit of my High Self? Or the Higher Self calls one onto the path of destiny with a forceful voice?

  2. Hi Marina.

    I was wondering if I should consider myself Sag Decan 2. My ascendant is 16 Sag. I also have a question about orbs. In a natal chart a conjunction would have an orb of 8. Does this same 8* orb apply for a transiting planet conjuncting a natal point on my chart. On the 1st of December the Transiting Sun was on 8* Sag. Would this be considered a conjunction at 8* because my natal Sun is at 16 Sag? Or, should I halve it, let’s say use a 4* orb instead? I have some major aspects coming up and I want to make the most of it: Transiting Sun conjunct Natal Sun, Transiting Mercury conjunct Natal Sun. Any thoughts?

    • For transiting planets the orbs come right down to 1º. (for me that is, some use a wider orb) The faster planets are triggers for the slower moving ones. I also use precession correction which you can set your solar fire to use, if you have it, otherwise you have to do that manually. It roughly means for someone aged 40 that they will experience transits 30′ later that in the ephemeris states, which doesn’t really affect transits from the personal planets as they are so fast, but can make the difference of months with Pluto.
