The documentation for environment variables used by sage it is mentioned that the default location of DOT_SAGE is $HOME/.sage/ but that this location can be changed.

Before running SageMath, define the environment variable DOT_SAGE by typing the following command in a terminal:

export DOT_SAGE=/full_path/.sage

where /full_path must be substituted by the actual path to the directory where the file .sage is located.

Ahh, so sage reads environment variables set by my shell?
