Those born with the Moon in Sagittarius express their feelings in a spontaneous and energetic way. With this placement, there is a need to be free to expand boundaries, for too much restriction in relationships, generates intense frustration, boredom, and volatility. An interesting road taken on life’s great journey is preferable to a safe but uneventful life. Sagittarius is a frank sign and expresses itself honestly and with humor. Those with the Moon in this fiery zodiacal area will probably be socially extroverted, enjoying intellectual company; they are very generous towards friends. However, they are one of the signs that become the most bored if they have to spend every day in the same company. The 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 and to experience life to its fullest. Everyday existence needs to contain plenty of exciting new adventures and opportunities.
According to Nicki Rowe:
She was a gypsy, as soon as you unravelled the many layers to her wild spirit she was on her next quest to discover her magic. She was relentless like that, the woman didn’t need nobody but an open road, a pen and a couple of sunsets. You know a wild spirit just by looking at them, they carry a vibe that doesn’t appear often but when it does my god you won’t forget them. They are always passing through lives, never staying put, but always remembered long after they have left. She’s a gypsy girl living in a material world. Unattached to most things but in love with life itself.
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. This Moon, therefore, needs a lot of activity in physical endeavors or in the intellectual sphere. Many of them are fond of the outdoors, animals, and traveling to new places. If they can’t travel the urge is usually satisfied through dreaming about faraway lands. With Sagittarian Moons, purpose and passion is what will guide them to their best selves. With this Moon placement, there is a need for a distinct belief system, and it may not be conventional or traditional. Eager to expand their understanding of the world, these individuals through traveling or seeking knowledge, broaden their perspective. Lunar Sagittarians also have large, wide-open, generous hearts, need to believe in the bounty of existence, and enjoy learning. Spreading knowledge comes naturally; they are natural students and are attracted to reading, writing, publishing, advertising, entertainment, and publicity. Many of them make excellent guides and teachers, work in education, and involve themselves in the passing on of information.
The Moon in Sagittarius here is concerned with abstract ideals, intellectualizing and philosophizing rather than focusing on their current situation. Sagittarius is, however, prone to throwing off the weight of responsibility, and obligation:
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
The Moon in Sagittarius will often feel lucky, fortunate and blessed. Lyn Birkbeck calls those with the Moon in this in position as having the souls of gypsies. When they feel miserable they escape, and in order to feel in complete harmony with themselves would live in a little tent in the outdoors. Those with an emphasis in Sagittarius have a wilder side and an unexplainable spark of life; they belong to nobody but themselves yet give a piece of who they are to everyone they meet. Being born under one of the fire signs, they are very passionate, enthusiastic, and like to feel alive and active. The truth is an integral part of their lives, and they find comfort through higher knowledge, and knowing they have an essential part of a larger plan.
You are basically a positive person, and you maintain that positivity most easily in a changing environment; no matter what darkness falls across your path, you will magically find a new direction to take, and will come up smelling of roses. As you believe in Providence, so she looks after you. Equally refreshing is your natural inclination to be spontaneous and outspoken – you clear the air, and the way, whatever confusion or despondency reigns. However, cheerful and optimistic as you are in company, unless you discover where such feelings are coming from, you can sometimes feel hollow and empty when on your own. At root, you have an almost mystical sense of life’s ‘story’ – that it is all going somewhere, and coming from somewhere. It is this innate and primitive faith that allows you to see the light at the end of the tunnel, when others are stumbling and crestfallen. This sense also gives you the desire to embrace more and more of life’s meanings and experiences. The Watkins Astrology Handbook
