For a Sagittarius, adventure is the spice of life. Everyone needs some adventure in their life once in a while. Some might go so far as to say that adventure is essential to your happiness.
And I'm not talking about climbing bungee jumping, skydiving or taking a trip to the Bermuda Triangle.
Those are exciting things however most of us don't have the stomach or the cash for THAT kind of excitement on a regular basis. So how does the average person incorporate a little adventure into their life from time to time?
The first thing you need to do is change your idea of what adventure is -- and what better time then now while the Sun begins its transit through the fearless sign of Sagittarius. Once you can see through this frame of mind, adventure and excitement can be had every day because adventure is a deeply personal thing. It can be as small as exploring a new part of town or trying a new restaurant. Sagittarius loathes monotony so anything that will shake things up can have a stellar impact on your health and happiness during this time. Because Sagittarians are known for their adventurous spirits, they may be the first to volunteer to help in a crisis situation, or they may be the only one out of their friend circle to move away from home.
While Scorpio season had us uncovering all of our darkest secrets and revealing our deepest fears, Sagittarius season wants you to obliterate those fears and do so with great enthusiasm! Don't wait for the perfect time to take an adventure, because the perfect time will never come (we're looking at you Virgo!). Do a little less planning than you're comfortable doing. Pack your suitcase as normal, then force yourself to repack using a suitcase half the size. Go on a drive with no destination in mind and no GPS. If you let yourself go and have some fun, you may actually find that your fears have been preventing you from enjoying new activities! Often, these fears will bind us to our old, familiar ways, keeping us from discovering new activities and hobbies we may enjoy. What qualifies as an adventure is entirely up to you -- your perspectives, desires, experiences, and so on. One woman's adventure may be another's routine. Don't worry about how others may define it; if it feels like an adventure to you, it is one.
Aries: Organize a Charity Event
Hone in on those natural leadership skills and let your personality shine this season by organizing a charity event! Aries have an incredible imagination so it won't be hard for you to think of creative ways to raise money while having a good time. Donation drive? Silent Auction? Ticketed events to live performance art with all proceeds going towards your charity of choice? The possibilities are endless. Plus, helping others will help you recognize your own value and importance in this world that is full of people in need. Choosing a cause you are passionate about will motivate you to follow through with your plans Not only will it give you a chance to throw an awesome party (it's not an adventure if you're not having fun, right) but it will give you a chance to give back to your community.
Taurus: Try the Chef's Special
This will be an easy adventure for you, Taurus, but one that can be equally as satisfying as the rest of the suggestions in this list. Try eating at a new restaurant or a cuisine you haven't tasted before. At the restaurant, ask for the chef's favorite and a suggested wine pairing. Trying something new will help Taurus to shake up their stubborn ways and put things into perspective. Taking a chance on something new will show them there's so more to life than the routine they've designed for themselves.
Gemini: Aerial Silks
Aerial silks are one long piece of fabric attached in the middle to the ceiling that creates two long tails, reflecting your dual Gemini nature. In these classes you will learn to climb, invert in the air, and hang upside down. As you increase strength and comfort-level, you will learn sequences, drops, slides, and flips that allow you to descend the fabric with style and grace. This physical, yet artistic activity will stimulate both sides of Gemini's mind, and could even spark an interest that could turn into a lifetime hobby!
Cancer: Dance Class
Getting you out of the house can prove to be an adventure on its own, but once you find the right activity to excite your passions, the adventure becomes all the more merrier, and what better way to get those little crab legs moving than with a dance class! And don't even think of shying away from this one. If I had a nickel for every flyer I've seen advertising a free Zumba class I'd be filthy stinking rich. As a water sign, you are highly emotional and romantic. Choose a style of dance that reflects what you're feeling and dreaming of at this moment. Flamenco, salsa, ballroom dancing... there are so many styles to choose from to help you break out of your shell. If you're REALLY feeling adventurous, test your skills after class at your favorite dance spot and show off your new moves!
Leo: Go Thrifting
A Leo in a $5 dress? Yes, Diva! Known for their grandiose ways and dramatic nature, it's not often these signs consider sifting through the bottom of the barrel when it comes to clothing. Take a chance and hit up your local thrift or vintage clothing stores and challenge yourself to find an outfit you like with a small budget! Not only will this test your creativity, you might even end up finding your new favorite one-of-a-kind piece to last you through the season. Make a list of items you've been wanting to incorporate into your wardrobe and treat it like a scavenger hunt! And if it doesn't work out, at the very least you might be able to make a buck or two off some old clothes if you end up selling them.
Virgo: Wine & Paint
Pouring over to-do lists doesn't leave much time for creativity does it, Virgo? When's the last time you put down the sponge and had some fun getting messy? Treat yourself to a relaxing BYOB painting class! Nothing gets the creativity flowing like a smooth glass of pinot noir, plus visiting a studio means no mess for you to clean up afterwards. Painting can be quite therapeutic, as long as you are able to leave your perfectionist attitude at home. With a little relaxation and adventure, you could be opening up to a wonderful new skill or pastime.
Libra: Have a Yes! Day
Do away with your indecisiveness for just one day and say YES to everything! Keep in mind your personal boundaries and obviously don't engage in any ridiculous requests, but choose one day where you decide to say YES to everything and see where that adventure takes you! Make a post on social media letting your friends know that you are participating and ask for some suggestions on exciting, adventurous things to do! The more friends involved, the crazier it gets! You may end up helping a friend run some errands or you may end up on the opposite side of town at some creative event. All you have to do is say YES!
Scorpio: Visit a Psychic
Fascinated by all things occult, spooky, and taboo. Visiting a psychic is a fun and exciting way to have an adventure when you're short on time or on a budget. Speaking with a psychic will not only challenge your skeptical nature, but will allow you to address any fears of being vulnerable in front of others. Treat it like a miniature therapy session if you need to. Come prepared with a list of questions you are seeking answers to, or any issues you need guidance on.
Sagittarius are known for their scholarly interests and sage wisdom. In your quest for higher learning, surely you have come across some teachers and gurus whose philosophies resonated with your own. Choose a role model who inspires you and spend the day walking their shoes by thinking critically about the kinds of choices they would make and try to fulfill as many of those tasks as you can. Remember those WWJD bracelets? Try to keep something that will remind you to think before you act. You might find you are able to accomplish more, or things that seemed out of reach. Either way, aligning your actions with your aspirations will help free yourself from the confines of any "I can't" attitudes, because nothing is farther from the truth!
Capricorn: Scavenger Hunt
Call up your most adventurous friend and suggest a scavenger hunt swap for the two of you. Have fun sending your friend on cross-town adventures and see if they can find all your hidden treasures. Leave clues at each stop along the way with small rewards like your friend's favorite treat, a crystal, or something special that signifies your friendship. Going step by step and collecting your rewards will instill you with the sense of accomplishment that Capricorns so desperately crave. If setting up a scavenger hunt seems like too much work, try downloading a list online of things to photograph around your town or neighborhood. Buy yourself a disposable camera and see how many creative pictures you'll end up with by going through your list!
Aquarius: Get Inked!
For a truly unforgettable adventure, call up the bestie and demand they join you in getting best friend tattoos! Choose an object or something that symbolizes your friendship and find a design that fits your desired size and cost requirements. It doesn't have to be anything big or highly detailed. Simple, modern mini tattoos are just as fun and won't hurt nearly as much as a full back piece. Can't think of anything meaningful to draw up? Ask your closest friend for a suggestion. If you're looking for something equally as daring but less permanent, you can always go for a piercing!
Pisces: Bikrim Yoga
It's time to get this fish out of water and on to dry land... well, a dry yoga mat that is! Turn up the heat this winter and get into your "flow" by trying out a hot yoga class! Not only is this a great physical workout, but it will also help Pisces to get out of their own heads for an hour and let go of the thoughts constantly swimming around in their heads. As a highly empathic sign of the zodiac, it is vital that you surround yourself with positive energy and positive people. A yoga studio is the perfect place to find like-minded people in search of the same inner stillness that Pisces seek.
