We can be very interested in producing, analyzing, fixing
problems, and sorting things out today with a Virgo Moon all day and Mercury and
Mars approaching a conjunction. Taking care of business is a major theme now. We
crave organization and practicality, and we want to get things accomplished.
Keeping busy and making headway satisfies us more than usual, and it will be
especially important to channel excess mental energy constructively, or we may
feel nervous, impatient, and irritable without a good channel for expressing
Work, health, and partnerships are the top themes of May for you, dear
Sagittarius. But while physical health and wellness have been in strong
focus and will continue to be in the first three weeks of May, the Full
Moon on the 3rd can bring an epiphany about your emotional health. It's
a strong time for recognizing what to let go of in order to move forward
in a better frame of mind. Concentrate on what you need to do for YOU in
the long term. However, be extra careful that you don't speak too soon
about a sensitive topic. Try not to go over the top. The potential for
misunderstandings this month runs high, not only because of a Mercury
retrograde in your partnership sector from the 18th forward, but also
due to some tricky aspects involving Saturn in your sign and elusive
Neptune in your personal sector. How to minimize problems through this?
You will frequently feel the need to draw boundaries. Watch that you
don't naturally take on the role of the heavy in the face of others'
immaturity or unreliability, or possibly even enthusiasm. You may feel
pressured by others now, and this isn't good, but when you lay down the
law, be firm but gentle as well. When it comes to family, boundaries are
necessary too, but you could have a harder time making these clear. If
possible, hold off on major contract signing and decision making until
later in June. June is expected to be ripe with possibilities, particularly
creative, educational, and romantic ones for you. The adjustments you make now
will go a long way towards improving your prospects in June even further. In
particular, money matters need some sorting out. For some of you, it's about
self-esteem and talents. While working on these things is favored at any time,
you'll find conditions more supportive on the 5-6 and 24th.
Increased personal responsibilities are likely this year, dear Sagittarius,
but also joy in meeting goals and others' discovery of your talents. 2015 is a
strong year for practical focus and determination, and getting finances sorted
and on track. There's also good energy for your romantic and social life, even
if it has its ups and downs.
Saturn moved into your sign late in 2014, and will do so more permanently from mid-September
forward (until 2017). This move affects all Sagittarians energetically on some
level, but more directly those born November 22-December 3 and those with a
Sagittarius Ascendant of 0 to 11 degrees. This is a time for really sorting out
your life and getting it into order. You'll need to deal with problem areas
where you may have slacked. There may be times when you feel others don't truly
"see" your personal struggles and leave you to your own resources. Neglected or unfinished areas need attention now,
and while it's not especially glamorous, tending to these matters will keep you
honest and contribute to long-term success. In fact, the best way to mentally
deal with some of the frustrations of this position is to focus on setting
things right and reminding yourself that the work you do now will benefit you
for years to come. This is not the time to be short-sighted. Saturn can be like
having a personal trainer, perhaps uninvited, but reminding you to shape up.
While it's mostly about getting your affairs into order, this can also be a time
to firm up physically. Excesses become glaring. Moderation is the lesson now. Jupiter helps to lighten your load, mostly in the form of a positive
attitude, with its transit of your sector of spirit until mid-August. Take
advantage of any opportunity to learn, grow, and improve during this fortunate
transit. Look for the silver lining, absorb your lessons, and move forward.
There can be fortunate connections to others, either romantic or creative, or
both. Some of you could get published. Students may do especially well. You may
be connecting with good, helpful mentors and teachers or strong programs. April
to June is an especially strong period for these things.
While Saturn in your sign generally means operating under a low profile,
Jupiter's movement into your career and reputation zone in mid-August will bring
you recognition. Especially from October forward, you're carrying yourself with
more dignity, maturity, and competence, attracting respect and positive
attention. You take more pride in your performance. Advancement in achieving an important goal can occur now.
There can be positive relationships with parents and bosses. People tend to
encourage you to reach your highest potential. Finances may be overhauled. A
stronger sense of timing improves both money and business affairs. March's Solar
Eclipse may stimulate a new direction with family, housing, and accommodations.
However, this is the first in a set of eclipses that bring new energy to your
life direction and family/home life, extending until February 2017. A move or
change in career goals may be in the works, and this is the first push towards
making changes. There may be draining family or home life events and shifts from
November forward to deal with. Uncertainty here can force you to mature quickly,
possibly as you take on more personal responsibilities.
You're encouraged to share more of yourself with others and to join with
friends and teams this year, even if you are feeling a little solitary from time
to time. There are rewards and benefits for keeping in touch. In fact,
friendships and networking efforts can be very supportive, offering a breather
from some of the more serious focus and responsibilities. In many ways, you are
in the position to lead in 2015, and there can be some loneliness as the result
of this. You might seek out people who are not as personally involved -
acquaintances, groups, casual friends - for encouragement and pleasant
diversion. Your passions are especially stimulated February 20th to mid-March,
when your personal magnetism is powerful and you're motivated to pursue your
desires. April's Lunar Eclipse can bring surprises in the world of romance or
social life, an announcement, or epiphany related to love and friendship. A
partner may be acting out or acting out of character April-June. Special
attention to a partnership is required now. From September forward, pay special
attention to long-term goals. Draw upon the power of September's eclipse to
start fresh on this level, and to give it your all. Nurture your ambition, enjoy
a feeling of accomplishment, and don't neglect your home life in the process.
This year brings new responsibilities and a strong need for more structure in
your life, but also all the tools necessary to feel on top of it all.
You begin the year with Jupiter moving through your intimacy sector, and this
influence that lasts until mid-July is a strong one for deepening a
relationship, sharing yourself with someone, and for sexual opportunities. It's
a time of learning about a partner, about yourself, and about the myriad ways of
expressing your affection.
New this year is a series of eclipses occurring in your romance and
friendship sectors. It's the lunar eclipses that are affecting romance this
year, and in 2015, solar eclipses will also be in play. Something is stirring
within you--a feeling of unrest or dissatisfaction with your level of enjoyment
in life--and this inner discontent demands a few changes. Passion and intensity
in affairs of the heart can run rampant and enthusiasm overflows.
There can be some challenges in romance while Mars is retrograde from March
1-May 19, and these might involve friendships. It can be very hard to know what
it is you want, and what it is others want from you, during this period.
Mercury rules your partnership sector, and while this sector is free of outer
planet influences in 2014, Mercury's travels through your chart through the year
can point to short-term influences on your one-to-one relationships. While
Mercury is retrograde, there can be some backing up or re-considering connected
with partnership, and these periods occur from February 6-28, June 7-July 1, and October 4-25. The more significant of these periods
is June 17-July 1 when Mercury is retrograde in your partnership sector--a
double whammy of sorts. For all periods, however, it's a good time for slowing
down, reviewing your situation, and gaining a new perspective on problem areas...cont'd
