Overview for this Month: Sagittarius (All)

May 2016

The month ahead is a strong one for making important adjustments, getting your daily routines and self-care problems into order, and doing editing or revision in your work, dear Sagittarius. You have plenty of support for these activities, thankfully. Attempting to push ahead new initiatives is not advised for now.

This is a time for handling details that may have been missed in the past, reorganizing, clearing up clutter, and attempting to bring more or better structure to your daily life. The New Moon on the 6th motivates you to take charge of your health, self-care initiatives, and work, although much of the month is strong for these things, particularly the first half. If you've been holding on too tightly to a difficult work situation or job, then the matter may come to a head.

With Jupiter's direct motion from the 9th, you are easing back into a power period for work, recognition, and promotion that lasts until September. Professional and reputation matters gain more clarity. Although it can take a bit of time to get back on track, you are likely to see gradual improvements in these areas. Motivation to pursue a particular course or path, and possibly a business venture, increases in the coming months. Because Jupiter is your ruler, as it begins its slow but sure movement in direct motion, your own confidence and faith build. You become clearer about what you want and by extension, the signals you give off to others are more effective. As well, Jupiter forms some happy aspects this month. You are solving problems or rising above them when it comes to practical matters. You are especially open to new insights and understanding, and you might also lend a sensitive ear to other people's problems. You could feel especially reinforced and uplifted when you discover someone who truly understands your perspective. A sense of inner joy and peace can be with you, which quietly yet effectively boosts your personal magnetism. Stronger conviction is with you as you discover more meaning in what you are doing. You can make significant headway in business or other projects already in progress.

A tricky period of the month occurs on the 21-22 when the Full Moon aligns with retrograde Mars in your sign. There can be difficulties keeping your cool, and you may be feeling blocked. You can discover strong feelings and desires now that urge you to make changes. Avoid pushing matters, but pay attention to the emotional slush that emerges.

Your ruler also makes a difficult aspect with Saturn in the last week of May. This has come up before, but now forms for the last time for some time. If you've been taking on too much, you'll feel it now. Even exciting projects, if overdone, can become overwhelming and burdensome if they're overdone. Some of you could be wrestling with problems being seen and heard the way you want on a personal level - you could feel that people are looking to you for what you are able to do for them rather than concerning themselves with your personal needs. Personal responsibilities or self-restrictions can be challenging, affecting your growth in the outside world or career. A business or pursuit may need adjustments and some restructuring in order to better meet the demands of reality. Look for ways to simplify your life and draw some boundaries if you feel others are overstepping them.

On May 27th, retrograde Mars leaves your sign and enters Scorpio, where it will transit for the final month of its retrograde. Once direct, Mars will work its way back through Scorpio until early August, when it re-enters your sign. Now and until June 29th, you'll be reassessing your approach to your spiritual and emotional worlds and how you go about satisfying these needs. While some obsession with private matters or concerns about the past may need attention, this is a time for better understanding your more complicated, buried drives and desires.

May 2016

 

SaggitariusOverview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until May 20th:

The Sun puts a spotlight on your solar sixth house. This is a busy period that finds you tending to many different details of your daily existence--your work, various projects, organization around the home and office, your daily routines, and health matters. Your ego may be especially tied up in the work you do, so that you are proud and more creative than usual in your job. You may be in the position to take charge in your work, or to take charge of your health and diet. Sometimes this cycle relates to increased activities involving pets. You seek to perfect your skills or methods now, and you focus on the parts that make up the whole now in order to improve your daily life. As a result, you can be more critical than usual, but this process is necessary for you to sort out what works for you and what doesn't.

From May 20th forward:

The Sun illuminates your seventh house. At this time of year, you have a greater need than usual to be with a partner. Bouncing ideas off someone helps you to better understand yourself. A partner provides a mirror for your own self-discovery. Now is the time to realize your own potential through a significant other. During this cycle, you focus on balancing your personal interests and objectives with your social life, or with those of a partner. The emphasis is on "us" rather than "me". You need the energies, companionship, and support of other people, and they may also seek out your support and companionship. It's important to include others rather than to go solo for the time being. However, bending too much to the will of another is not advised either. Social interactions of a personal, one-on-one kind are emphasized. Circumstances are such that your diplomacy skills are required. Your popularity is increasing, and is reinforced by your own ability to cooperate and harmonize. Your ego and pride are tied up in how you relate to others now. This may be an especially busy time for people who consult or work with clients one-on-one.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until May 24th: Venus continues to move through your solar sixth house now. This is a time when beautifying and/or bringing harmony to your working environment is a priority to you. You might find more opportunities to socialize with co-workers, perhaps even meeting a new friend through your work or health routines. You are likely to bring more tact and diplomacy to your relations with the people you work with now. You may not be as productive as usual during this period, as the focus is more on social relationships and pleasure than on getting the job done. Improving health and vitality through pleasurable activities such as massage might be in focus now.

From May 24th forward:

Venus graces your solar seventh house during this period. This is a time for extra attention to a partner or significant other, as well as from that person! You are more inclined to flatter and charm others during this cycle. One-to-one relating appeals to you more than group activities or more casual connections. Smoothing out your close personal relationships is what makes you happy during this cycle. If single, you are more willing than normal to enter into a committed relationship. In general, you are adaptable when it comes to your affections--very willing to compromise, negotiate, and make peace.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from April 28th to May 22nd:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with bosses or in your career in general, as well as communications with a close partner, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. An argument over joint finances can also get you into hot water. Hold back. Because Virgo and Gemini are on the angles of your chart, you may be especially sensitive to all of the common Mercury Retrograde issues.

Occurring in your solar sixth house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to work, health matters, and daily routines. Be as non-judgmental as you can with co-workers and/or employees. Re-thinking the suitability of your job is possible now, but you should avoid jumping to any premature decisions. Work-related mess-ups can frustrate you, or you might need to redo work that you thought was complete. However, you might find that the refinements you make now will be very valuable later. Double- check your work before submitting it. It's a fine time for researching health and nutrition programs, as well as job skills and opportunities, but perhaps not the best time for beginning all-new programs. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with co-workers and health professionals; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Mars is retrograde from April 17-June 29

All Mars retrograde cycles affect you in the areas of creativity, children, recreation, entertainment, hobbies, and romance because Mars rules these areas of your solar chart. This can play out in a variety of ways, such as problems with a lover or child's enthusiasm, for example, or a creative project encountering some setbacks, or possibly an event or circumstance that prevents you from enjoying hobbies or leisurely activities for the time being. This may be a period of review of a love affair.

From April 17th to May 27th:

Occurring in your solar first house now, this Mars retrograde cycle is very up close and personal! The ways that your survival instincts have served you to date may not seem to be as effective, or you might be feeling cautious and withdrawn overall now. You might find that you are second-guessing yourself, and this is a natural process as you reassess how you have been going about meeting life and reacting/acting. It's a good time for refining these things. Your personal initiatives and confidence are affected. Perhaps you are not as confident about your personal effectiveness and more cautious about sharing yourself with others. Personal initiatives might need to be put on the back burner, or you could show less enthusiasm for them. You could be a little tired and more accident-prone, so be sure to rest up. You are also examining the way anger has helped or impaired your life, and coming up with new ways to manage it. In the process, you can experience some real frustrations. The end result, ideally, is a much-improved you. It's time to rethink, revise, and reorganize your plans. Backtracking is a good idea now. How you assert yourself and how you go about going after what you want out of life are up for review now. Watch for unacknowledged or buried desires driving your behavior.

From May 27th to June 29th:

Occurring in your solar twelfth house this time, your spirituality, private life, gut instincts, and intuition are affected. Perhaps you are not as confident about your hunches. Private affairs and solitary work might need to be put on the back burner, or you could show less enthusiasm for them. Trusting your gut instincts may become an issue. Vague fears and anxieties need to be dealt with. Obsession with private matters or concerns about the past could be part of the picture. Your desire nature can be rather complicated now, and it can be difficult to find direct routes to satisfaction. Old resentments, hurts, and angers can resurface. There can be lowered vitality, likely due to emotional frustrations and exasperation. It's time to rethink, revise, and reorganize your plans. Backtracking is a good idea now. This is a time for learning about how your mental health impacts your life.

Overview Horoscope:

The month ahead is a strong one for making important adjustments, getting your daily routines and self-care problems into order, and doing editing or revision in your work, dear Sagittarius.

May 2016

 

SaggitariusOverview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

All month: The Sun illuminates your solar sixth house. During this cycle, you take more pride in the work you do and in your health routines than any other time of the year. You are sorting through the experiences of the last several months, separating the worthwhile from the worthless. This is a good time to build your skills, to get organized, and to attend to your health and wellbeing. It's a great time to make improvements to your regular routines. Your self-esteem and your ego are tied up in the work you do and in the services you give. Details are more important to you now. It's time to bring order to your life by focusing on the little things that make up the whole. This cycle presents an opportunity to get rid of what doesn't work in your life, while also discovering what does. You could seek distinction and strive towards perfection in your work. Efficiency should be your goal now. Your physical health, as well as the relationship between your body and your mind, are in focus.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until May 8th:

Venus continues to transit your solar fifth house. Your popularity is on an upward trend during this cycle as others find you especially attractive and friendly. You may have the desire to dress well and in good taste. There is strength in your feelings of love and the power of attraction, which may open the door to new romantic relationships. Yet, you are not aggressive in your approach to love. Instead, you attract more if you allow yourself to be pursued during this cycle. Conditions are highlighted in connection with young people, and quite possibly a female child--a stronger bond could be formed during this period. You are feeling inspired creatively and romantically and you express your loving feelings quite openly now. Creative self-expression of any kind is favored at this time. You will also thoroughly enjoy artistic, musical, or cultural events and activities, especially in the company of a loved one. At this time, you instinctively know how to place yourself in the best light in order to make a good impression on others. Any love affair begun now will be characterized by good cheer, having fun, and a fair share of emotional drama!

From May 8th forward:

Venus graces your solar sixth house now. Establishing a happy and harmonious work environment through friendly relations with co-workers or tidying up your work area comes into focus now. Romantic and social activities may revolve around your working environment. You are generally well liked and respected socially on the job right now. Some laziness is possible now, as you tend to associate pleasure with work! Perhaps you are socializing more than usual on the job. You have good team spirit during this cycle, and you are more tactful and obliging with your co-workers. You are less inclined to fall in love for the sake of love itself during this cycle. Your tendency is to consider whether it is clever to do so! You're most successful doing tasks that involve cooperation and team harmony. You could find that your talents or skills are especially appreciated. Romantic and social activities may revolve around your working environment.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from April 28th to May 22nd:

From May 22nd forward - Mercury is direct:

Mercury transits your solar sixth house. This is a good placement for Mercury, as it is the natural ruler of the sixth house. It's an excellent period for sorting out the details of your daily existence. You are inclined to make to-do lists, pay bills and sort out clutter, and to do detail work on the job. Health matters are most certainly on your brain as well, and you could be thinking of scheduling check-ups or busy researching ways to improve your health. You may also show a keener interest in improving your basic skills. Your approach to work during this cycle is pleasant, happy, and logical for the most part, unless you allow worry or scattered energy to enter the picture. You are inclined to want to learn new work skills, or to improve your skills and output in terms of work. There is likely to be more activity, movement, contact, and communications with co-workers now. You tend to take more interest in organizing your working environment--and this is an excellent time to do so, as you are especially objective and intelligent when it comes to getting a handle on your daily affairs and all of the "little things" that contribute to a feeling of efficiency and competency. Menial tasks become more prominent. Watch, however, for tension or idle chit-chat interfering with your work output during this cycle.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until May 10th:

The Sun continues to put a spotlight on your solar fifth house. This is a time when pleasure-seeking and creative activities come into focus and grab much of your attention. You are particularly personally charming in a spontaneous, natural way during this solar cycle. This is the time of year when you are ready to perform and to express yourself creatively. This is a very playful cycle, when you are inspired creatively and emotionally. It's a good time for recreation, romance, connecting with children, and enjoying and performing the arts. Your ego is tied up in your children, romantic relationships, and creative output now, so that you can be especially proud of these people and things. You can also be over-sensitive about these matters if you feel you are not getting enough appreciation.

From May 10th forward:The Sun illuminates your solar sixth house. During this cycle, you take more pride in the work you do and in your health routines than any other time of the year.

Venus continues to transit your solar fifth house. Your popularity is on an upward trend during this cycle as others find you especially attractive and friendly.

You could find that your talents or skills are especially appreciated. Romantic and social activities may revolve around your working environment.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from April 28th to May 22nd:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with bosses or in your career in general, as well as communications with a close partner, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. An argument over joint finances can also get you into hot water. Hold back. Because Virgo and Gemini are on the angles of your chart, you may be especially sensitive to all of the common Mercury Retrograde issues.

Occurring in your solar fifth and sixth houses this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to romance, children, creativity, work, and daily routines. Be as non- judgmental as you can with co-workers, romantic partners, and your children. Re- thinking the suitability of your job and/or romantic relationships is possible now, but you should avoid jumping to any premature decisions. Work-related mess-ups can frustrate you. Double-check your work. There may be the need to revisit old issues with your children or lover, or there could be some communication problems with the same. Arguments with a lover may be blown out of proportion far too easily. Both you and your lover should avoid harping on the words used and try to get to the meaning behind the words instead. Or, a romance may not be moving forward in obvious ways. It might seem like stagnation, but it's actually a period of review and rest. Other possibilities include calls that are not returned, a lover is late for a date, or dates get cancelled. Speculation and gambling are not advised right now. Things will change once Mercury turns direct, so you might decide to try to keep status quo for the time being. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with co-workers, professors, lawyers, romantic partners, and children, or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

From May 22nd forward - Mercury is direct:

Mercury transits your solar fifth house. During this cycle, there is a powerful mental connection with your creative self-expression. You are proud of your ideas, and very good at expressing them to others smoothly now. Your thinking is more creative than usual. You tend to entertain others with your conversation; and your sense of humor (and of mischief!) is especially strong. Your thoughts turn to children, pleasures, or romance during this expressive cycle. You might enjoy researching speculative ventures now. You especially enjoy games that involve competing with others on a mental level. You have a stronger need than usual for intellectual stimulation. Therefore, your friends and romantic partner are best appreciated now if they are intellectual types. You're more willing to take risks on a mental level now, so take advantage of the increased spontaneity and creativity that comes with this position.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Mars is retrograde from April 17-June 29

All Mars retrograde cycles affect you in the areas of creativity, children, recreation, entertainment, hobbies, and romance because Mars rules these areas of your solar chart. This can play out in a variety of ways, such as problems with a lover or child's enthusiasm, for example, or a creative project encountering some setbacks, or possibly an event or circumstance that prevents you from enjoying hobbies or leisurely activities for the time being. This may be a period of review of a love affair.

Occurring in your solar twelfth house this time, your spirituality, private life, gut instincts, and intuition are affected. Perhaps you are not as confident about your hunches. Private affairs and solitary work might need to be put on the back burner, or you could show less enthusiasm for them. Trusting your gut instincts may become an issue. Vague fears and anxieties need to be dealt with. Obsession with private matters or concerns about the past could be part of the picture. Your desire nature can be rather complicated now, and it can be difficult to find direct routes to satisfaction. Old resentments, hurts, and angers can resurface. There can be lowered vitality, likely due to emotional frustrations and exasperation. It's time to rethink, revise, and reorganize your plans. Backtracking is a good idea now. This is a time for learning about how your mental health impacts your life.

Overview Horoscope:

The month ahead is a strong one for making important adjustments, getting your daily routines and self-care problems into order, and doing editing or revision in your work, dear Sagittarius. You have plenty of support for these activities, thankfully. Attempting to push ahead new initiatives is not advised for now.

This is a time for handling details that may have been missed in the past, reorganizing, clearing up clutter, and attempting to bring more or better structure to your daily life. The New Moon on the 6th motivates you to take charge of your health, self-care initiatives, and work, although much of the month is strong for these things, particularly the first half. If you've been holding on too tightly to a difficult work situation or job, then the matter may come to a head.

With Jupiter's direct motion from the 9th, you are easing back into a power period for work, recognition, and promotion that lasts until September. Professional and reputation matters gain more clarity. Although it can take a bit of time to get back on track, you are likely to see gradual improvements in these areas. Motivation to pursue a particular course or path, and possibly a business venture, increases in the coming months. Because Jupiter is your ruler, as it begins its slow but sure movement in direct motion, your own confidence and faith build. You become clearer about what you want and by extension, the signals you give off to others are more effective. As well, Jupiter forms some happy aspects this month. You are solving problems or rising above them when it comes to practical matters. You are especially open to new insights and understanding, and you might also lend a sensitive ear to other people's problems. You could feel especially reinforced and uplifted when you discover someone who truly understands your perspective. A sense of inner joy and peace can be with you, which quietly yet effectively boosts your personal magnetism. Stronger conviction is with you as you discover more meaning in what you are doing. You can make significant headway in business or other projects already in progress.

A tricky period of the month occurs on the 21-22 when the Full Moon aligns with retrograde Mars in your sign. There can be difficulties keeping your cool, and you may be feeling blocked. You can discover strong feelings and desires now that urge you to make changes. Avoid pushing matters, but pay attention to the emotional slush that emerges.

Your ruler also makes a difficult aspect with Saturn in the last week of May. This has come up before, but now forms for the last time for some time. If you've been taking on too much, you'll feel it now. Even exciting projects, if overdone, can become overwhelming and burdensome if they're overdone. Some of you could be wrestling with problems being seen and heard the way you want on a personal level - you could feel that people are looking to you for what you are able to do for them rather than concerning themselves with your personal needs. Personal responsibilities or self-restrictions can be challenging, affecting your growth in the outside world or career. A business or pursuit may need adjustments and some restructuring in order to better meet the demands of reality. Look for ways to simplify your life and draw some boundaries if you feel others are overstepping them.

On May 27th, retrograde Mars leaves your sign and enters Scorpio, where it will transit for the final month of its retrograde. Once direct, Mars will work its way back through Scorpio until early August, when it re-enters your sign. Now and until June 29th, you'll be reassessing your approach to your spiritual and emotional worlds and how you go about satisfying these needs. While some obsession with private matters or concerns about the past may need attention, this is a time for better understanding your more complicated, buried drives and desires.
