Books for Sagittarius Season

By Kat La Mantia | November 27 2023 | AdultsGeneralAllGiftBlog

From the scorpion to the archer, the year turns to Sagittarius from November 23 – December 21. Well represented by the image of a centaur wielding a bow and arrow, Sagittarius is a straight shooter with an eye always towards the future who values freedom and exploration above all else. Sagittarians are goal-setters. They love to set targets for both projects and personal growth, and they find immense satisfaction in meeting them. Their enthusiasm for progress can sometimes lead Sagittarius towards extreme multitasking and spreading themselves too thin. An optimistic and versatile sign, Sagittarius may find it hard to reign in their passions and end up overcommitting to too many projects. Learning that the best results come from seeing a task through to the end before moving on to the next is an important lesson for Sagittarius.

Sagittarians possess fiercely independent spirits, which can make them slow to settle down into long-term relationships. However, if Sagittarius finds a great personality match, they’ll be more than happy to start planning their future together. Sagittarians should be careful not to get too lost in future planning and viewing relationship success in terms of milestones. Staying grounded in the present is crucial for building a strong partnership. While Sagittarians can be difficult to pin down into a romantic relationship, they make for great, encouraging friends. Count on a Sagittarius to drag you out of the house when you’re feeling blue or to answer your call when you want to try out a new restaurant.

Like other fire signs, Sagittarius’s passionate and dynamic nature means they’re driven by the pursuit of self-expression. Whether it’s in art, work, or home life, Sagittarius won’t be satisfied by simply fitting into a mold created by someone else. They want to make their own stamp on the world and create a life that is wholly theirs. While this mindset may be intimidating for some, adventurous Sagittarius loves a challenge. Sagittarius craves meaning in their work and hobbies and finds stagnancy abhorrent. Sagittarians may be prone to job-hopping or frequent cross-country moves to keep things different and interesting. Embracing change can be a helpful quality, but Sagittarius should be careful not to seek change for its own sake.

Sagittarius will enjoy books that teach them something new, or travel writing that makes them feel like a world explorer. They love the challenge of experimental fiction and are eager to get lost in richly developed fantasy worlds. Habit trackers and guided journals are perfect for a goal-setting Sagittarius, and they’ll gladly read anything about self-made changemakers. Our picks for Sagittarius this month feature celebrities who share the sign–Taylor Swift and Tina Turner–books that honor fire as their zodiac element, books that encourage staying ground in the present, and books that celebrate the power of self-expression and determination.

House of Leaves
The Remastered, Full-Color Edition
978-0-375-42052-8
THE MIND-BENDING CULT CLASSIC ABOUT A HOUSE THAT’S LARGER ON THE INSIDE THAN ON THE OUTSIDE • A masterpiece of horror and an astonishingly immersive, maze-like reading experience that redefines the boundaries of a novel.''Simultaneously reads like a thriller and like a strange, dreamlike excursion into the subconscious." —Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times  "Thrillingly alive, sublimely creepy, distressingly scary, breathtakingly intelligent—it renders most other fiction meaningless." —Bret Easton Ellis, bestselling author of American Psycho “This demonically brilliant book is impossible to ignore.” —Jonathan Lethem, award-winning author of Motherless Brooklyn Years ago, when House of Leaves was first being passed around, it was nothing more than a badly bundled heap of paper, parts of which would occasionally surface on the Internet. No one could have anticipated the small but devoted following this terrifying story would soon command. Starting with an odd assortment of marginalized youth—musicians, tattoo artists, programmers, strippers, environmentalists, and adrenaline junkies—the book eventually made its way into the hands of older generations, who not only found themselves in those strangely arranged pages but also discovered a way back into the lives of their estranged children.Now made available in book form, complete with the original colored words, vertical footnotes, and second and third appendices, the story remains unchanged. Similarly, the cultural fascination with House of Leaves remains as fervent and as imaginative as ever. The novel has gone on to inspire doctorate-level courses and masters theses, cultural phenomena like the online urban legend of “the backrooms,” and incredible works of art in entirely unrealted mediums from music to video games. Neither Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Will Navidson nor his companion Karen Green was prepared to face the consequences of the impossibility of their new home, until the day their two little children wandered off and their voices eerily began to return another story—of creature darkness, of an ever-growing abyss behind a closet door, and of that unholy growl which soon enough would tear through their walls and consume all their dreams.
