The Sagittarian Christmas Agenda

Model in village with reindeerYou know how i hate shopping and malls and fat people (hello- Santa?)  and having to show up to shit that’s not part of my personal journey and like, how Xmas is not even respectful to Pagans or Jews or people like me who like to buy presents, get Godly or drunk when they FEEL like it — not one day of the year and well, anyway…i love travel and i decided that the only part about Christmas that i really like is the flying sleigh and the reindeer! Yah! So here i am in Lapland and i have rented this awesomely hot cottage for the Yuletide…

Christmas means uprooting for 3 weeks to be around family to feel it’s ok to be us in a hard to explain way, always been close to my 6 siblings, we fight & have fun. After months & months in the desert the cool, good food, civilization is most welcome. Because you know you have to come back to the slog. I get off on the decorations, the sadder the tree the more beautiful :).

Am buying a small piece of forest land near a lake this Christmas….has been a Saggo dream of mine since childhood.

Christmas means you have to behave like a performing monkey. which I hate. However I do believe that there is some merit in upholding rituals.
A hot sandy beach and an esky full of beers bekons though.

being sag rising, that seems like a dream solstice to me! The woods, warm fire, no where to go and crusty bread with reindeer butter.

Fuq yeah! I loath Xmas! Mystic I totally relate to the post. What bothers me the most (apart from family obligations) is that people consume to the extreme while thousands of people are homeless. I think it is a total sham – all about ‘what’s for me’ rather than community.
My perfect festive season would involve camping on the beach and learning to surf or hiking nz south island or parties in Berlin or San Fran ….or tropical fruits! 🙂

My hubby is without any of his family at chrissie. And every year we have a massive blue. Expectations are too huge and emotions run high. But I do love to wear tinsel in my hair.

I read this after wrapping up a skype session with my Sag-Moon mother & nearly spit my tea out at the screen. The topic of the convo? Her brothers & sisters trying to rein her in this Christmas with random name-drawing of who each family member will buy a gift for — she’ll give gifts to everyone if she wants! She’s already called home to threaten not to attend Christmas dinner, sending her Kataka mother into a dramatic slump. Her current status: a Canadian living sporadically in a Danish village (shite loads of amber, not far from the ocean) with… Read more »

Can that pic be me this Christmas?!? 😀 Lived my Sag ascendant wholeheartedly last Christmas (was definitely part of my personal journey). Decided spontaneously what I wanted to do and ended up having an amazing time with peeps I haven’t seen in forever. It was all just so breezy. Would LOVE to go to an island this year but I know I have to get a move on due to Merc retro if I want this to happen.

I know a sagg who can’t laugh at himself. He scurried away like a cockroach at the gym this morning when he saw me. I let him know that I know about the lies he told me. His mouth just went to jelly and then he raged. Some low saggs are liars and cowards. It’s not a good look.

I ditto on all that, and would like to add how bad and horrible christmas is for people who are doing it tough in life for many reasons: poverty, lonliness, family disputes, loss of loved ones etc. I always worry about them and think how christmas can really magnify their pain and hope that somewhere they received a kind gesture that really made them smile.
See not a scruge a realist.

you are so right. this year its weird. sister husband family celebrating their mother still being here post recent severe stroke, brother’s wife’s family has father just hanging in there, meanwhile our own mother wont leave the house & tries to hide the fact she can barely walk. so the decision to fly interstate to split time between the 3 homes is not the most enticing idea for a ‘holiday’. plus it costs a fortune for transit & presents then no one can cook – so its buy food & cook for all – guzzling plonk as we go. may… Read more »

Agree that children working in factories making dinky gifts that we buy due to retailers greed etc has nothing to do with kindness or spirituality!! But on another level classical culture has always celebrated rituals to usher in a new cycle. Rituals of 1. fasting, sacrifice and scapegoating 2. dead rising, rules broken, death of the king, break in the cycle 3. feasting, celebrating, marrying. Christmas through to Lent is an echo of an ancient rhythm to life and I think it is important to our subconscious to acknowledge those concepts – if not those proposed by the retailers.. Of… Read more »

agree Mystic – the enforced celebrations feels false. As your rightly note, it’s not the same day yet it is marketed as a generic celebration with enforced expenditure, business shut downs etc. Yes its fun for kids. yes its fun for family reunions. but still it seems like a lot of money & resources are unnecessarily wasted. a time of excess! similarly, New Yeat shits me – one night a year every one is EXPECTED to have a great time. I have forced celebration. fun shoulr be spontatnious or tailored to the particular event / person / milestone. Given a… Read more »

I love Christmas, it’s the best thing that has come out of consumer culture. You don’t have to be christian either, one of my Jewish friends collects Christmas decorations because they are so purty.

I was just about to ponder the question: Who lurves the chrissy thing?

I was going for Leo and Cancer (grown ups not kids though).

Me no really, love that there is more stuff going on and it seems to be the only time of the year that every one can finally get together friend wise I mean. But Chrissy day family stuff, guilt trips if you ‘d rather not…. Blaaa

I work in a shop. Maybe Doctor Who will come rescue me from a life of drudgery ala Rose – would totally time travel with him anywhere, anytime!
PS. I like the twinkly lights and my Star Trek ships. Visit with fam is usually short.

Maybe they were a collection of ethnically diverse Sag guys looking for an excuse to avoid forced seasonal family/religious gatherings and did a different trip each year. Only this one is recorded.
My Sag is rising – and running things…

I do love the Three Wise Men though. especially the fact that they read it in the stars -or whose astute local (palace?) astrologer got the predictions right and who were apparently up for a bit of a road trip ie. had their own transport, suitable gift, for royal baby their wits about them (not returning to Herod -derrr Herod! as if). Who would they have been?

did my sagittarian xmas last year, and was frolicking in the nz springs and caves with a bunch of other anarchists… best thing was that I actually got to miss the family and the consumerist greed, whereas for years i had been in constant conflict during the yuletide time. Often trying to discuss the MEANING of xmas with family members whose eyes glazed over and ears folded in, ignoring my attempts to change the status quo. I even went to church one year to authenticate the experience, but that didnt even help. I realise now, that aside from all the… Read more »

Kim Falconer would adore that article. Feel exact same way at Myst re Christmas. But New Year is a different story & love how many there are during the year! ‘Different Courses for different Horses ” Wiil purchase bamboo balinese oils lamps for garden as token. My alcho Leo ‘sis’ may be coming to stay for a 5 day limit. Limit, as she starts with sav blanc for lunch & bubbles, preferably French,if she can con me into it. Talks at me for 2 hours at a time along with many many Malborough Reds. It’s like being held captive! What… Read more »

Just bought my Saggo art teacher friend a cheap secondhand mtn bike for her bday so we can go cruising round town, urban adventuring together. Can think of only a gemini friend who would appreciate the same.

The sagge friend is so dismissive of xmas business she’s considering spending the day earning good money working in a lettuce farm refridgerator packing bags of lettuce.

This sounds like an excellent idea on a sweltering Dec day …. chilled as well as far away from drunk &/or sentimentality-oozing rellys :-))
