Retired Army Veterans Gather To Reawaken Old Memories; Perpetuation
The mantra of the Sagittarius archetype is “I seek” and this is the process of taking the beliefs formed on the personal and internal level and integrating them with systems and the Higher order. It is an external search for meaning and context, a reconciliation of the internal self with one’s tradition and societal position. It’s opposite sign, Gemini, is about operating within duality- the practical use of spiritual energy in daily life- and Sagittarius is about ideals.
In this symbol we see men who have fought under the banner of freedom and justice coming together to reminisce and socialize. Their gathering represents the perpetuation of the struggle for power, which is a basic human drive and occurs on every level. Scorpio was about facing the shadow and bringing order to the self and Sagittarius seeks to bring this order to his external environment.
