Sagittarian Spending Spree: Why We REALLY Go Over-the-Top During the Holidays

Hold fast to your credit card because at this moment, Sagittarius -- the sign of excess -- is ruling the skies.

Many retail stores made an unprecedented move this year: opening not just early in the morning on the day after Thanksgiving, but opening on the holiday itself. This new and growing trend underscores the depth of our addiction to shopping. They’re calling it "Brown Thursday", followed by "Black Friday" and then, of course, "Cyber Monday."

Because the holidays fall smack in the middle of Sagittarius season, it’s more over-the-top than ever, leading all the way up to Christmas morning. Superfluous is Sagittarius’ middle name. That’s why budgets are so often blown between November 21 and December 21.

If you don’t want to max out your credit, you might do better shopping once the Sun has shifted into Capricorn (after the Winter Solstice on December 21). Even though it’s technically last-minute, shopping during this time can be a lot better for your bank account -- at least on the energetic level.

Sagittarius can create a perplexing the-more-I-get-the-more-I-want situation. When you’re at the toy store and you see the video game your kid (or niece or nephew) simply must have, it’s easy to grab that and throw two more unnecessary items in your cart. Why? Because you’re more susceptible to signs that say, “Two for one!” or “Limited time offer!” or “Only five left in the store!”

Sagittarius is the sign that makes us "want to believe" like Fox Mulder on The X-Files, which is excellent for mind expansion. But when it comes to holiday marketing plans and sales pitches, don’t believe the hype. You needn’t fall prey to snake oil just because you don’t know when to say no.

During Sagittarius season, it’s more important than ever to apply a little practicality to any out-of control-appetites. That way, you’ll avoid retail regret in January, when all those bills come due. Happy (hold-onto-your-wallet) holidays!
