The Moon is in pioneering, enterprising Aries all day.
While this influence can be a little impatient and lacking in staying power,
it's also very independent, open, and brave. We are more inclined to stand up
for ourselves if necessary. Some self-focus is healthy now as we need to
understand our needs. Later today, the Sun in Taurus and Saturn in Sagittarius
approach a quincunx, perfecting very early into tomorrow. This can indicate
temporary doubts. Lack of faith in what we are doing can temporarily hinder our
movements and initiatives. We might now see the need to adjust our plans based
on new responsibilities or a reality check.
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.
This is a year for really getting your act together, dear Sagittarius! You're
maturing and looking at the world a little more realistically. Fortunately,
others are seeing your growth as well, and very much admiring your competence.
This is a good year for working hard but also for opportunities to lead and
excel in your public or career life.
While you may be putting on a brave or at times even stoic front with Saturn
in your sign, Neptune continues to influence your personal life and deeper
feelings. In truth, you are becoming softer on the inside - more emotionally
sensitive and spiritually vulnerable. Saturn and Neptune clash in 2016, with the
last conflict occurring in September, and this dichotomy can present some
problems. There may be times when you want to reach out for help or support from
others, and may not know how to do so. Do what you can to find someone you trust
and explain any issue you're dealing with now. It can feel lonely at the top,
especially if you're projecting an image that doesn't represent what's going on
Your earnings and natural talents can play a large role in your identity and
general outlook this year. Fortunately, you have strong opportunities to build
up your resources in 2016 and beyond. Look to March and June in particular for
business opportunities and the chance to use your natural talents more fully in
the work you do. Now and in coming years, you have the opportunity to totally
transform your financial life. There is real power here!
There is a Mars retrograde this year, and for all signs there can be some
troubles acting confidently and pursuing goals and desires directly during this
period that runs from April 17th to June 29th. This retrograde begins in your
sign and then moves back into Scorpio, the sign behind yours, so it's a little
more personal than usual. Mars first enters Sagittarius on March 5th, and you
can become quite pumped up, ready to pursue your personal goals, and for some,
personal magnetism skyrockets as well. However, you may second-guess yourself
while Mars is retrograde in your sign from April 17th to May 27th. There will be
times when you're really spinning your wheels. Desires are complicated, and
there can be some anger and resentment to deal with. Use this time to really get
in touch with what motivates and drives you, and then put your plans into action
when Mars returns once again to your sign, this time direct, from August 2 to
It's very appropriate to push your career forward this year, and to put more
of yourself into your work. The extra effort will be rewarded. The Solar Eclipse
on the first of September is a real motivator - it's time to really go after
what you want.
Even so, when Jupiter moves into your social sector on September 9th, kicking
off a thirteen-month stay, you'll feel a little more relieved, less pressured,
and more connected with others. During this cycle, you're appreciated for how
well you get along with others more than how you're performing or what you're
accomplishing. This is a forward-moving, optimistic time, even if there will be
times when you're a little overscheduled in your social world.
Keep in mind that even though Jupiter moves out of your career and reputation
sector on September 9th, the Moon's North Node remains there all year and
beyond, so it's important to bring continued focus to getting the career that
truly suits you and for pushing your practical and professional interests
forward. Status and reputation can improve in 2016.
Love in general can be exciting and also up and down. While Mars is direct in
your sign, you are especially attractive (from March 5-April 16, and then from
August 2-September 27). This is especially prominent from March 24-26 and
September 16-19. While it isn't necessarily a year for strong focus on romance,
it can nevertheless be useful to avoid taking yourself too seriously in 2016 -
take some time for fun and games. Much of October and November, either Mercury
or Venus is out of bounds in your sign, suggesting it's a time for going all out
in your social life, love life, and with learning and communicating. Follow your
heart now. December forward is strong for finding a creative friend or partner
to assist you in moving your plans forward.
Until August 11th, 2015, your vibrant, optimistic ruler, Jupiter, continues
to transit in harmony with your sign. This helps you to minimize daily stresses
and concentrate on your happier goals. It boosts your faith.
Two themes that point to taking yourself and your life more seriously occur
from mid-August and then mid-September forward: Jupiter moves into your
professional and responsibility sector for a year-long stay (from August 2015 to
September 2016), and then Saturn re-enters your sign in September (until
December 2017). While this is an important time for bringing more order to your
life, there can be times, of course, when the people you love (and the people
you want to love) may feel a little alienated, left out, or downright
intimidated! Make a conscious effort to let others in. Try not to communicate
your stress or negativity if that's going to be others' first impressions.
In 2014 and 2015, eclipses likely stirred a feeling of unrest or dissatisfaction with your level of enjoyment
in life, and this inner discontent has demanded a few changes. Passion and
intensity in affairs of the heart can run rampant and enthusiasm overflows at
the time of the final eclipse in this set, on March 23, 2016.
Uranus continues to shake up romantic feelings and bring unpredictability to
your dating life and casual romantic relationships. At times this lack of rules
can be disruptive, and other times perhaps a little exciting. Work with this
energy by accepting that things need to change...
