Shortly into the day, the Venus-Jupiter trine perfects,
promoting cooperation, expanded feelings, and our more indulgent side.
The Moon is in Pisces all day, and we are inclined to daydream and
perhaps stray from our regular routine a little. We are more spiritually
aware and sensitive, and a little less inclined to concern ourselves
with practical details. The
Sun is quincunx Jupiter today, and the desire to experience something new, or
for more freedom to explore, can amount to restlessness if we don't know what it
is we want. This is a time of adjustments, and perhaps of letting go of old
habits, so that we can free ourselves up for different experiences.
Finances, security, and communications are in focus this month, dear Sagittarius. In the first two weeks of February, you may be shown appreciation for your natural talents, and you have a strong sense for using them resourcefully and to your advantage.
Much of the month, there is a stronger desire than usual to communicate your ideas. Siblings, relatives, and neighbors tend to play a stronger role in your life. People readily go along with your plans and ideas, and you communicate with more charm and intelligence.
Nevertheless, Mars continues to transit your privacy sector all month, and there is a retiring quality to your personality as it does. With your ruler, Jupiter, retrograde, the need for some introspection is reiterated. This is a time for stepping back from your goals just a little in order to gain a new perspective. You might identify a pursuit that is better off put to rest.
The 2-3 is excellent for identifying your priorities and making important, practical changes. Consider reorganizing your finances now, as solid strategies can be formed. You have a strong sense for what needs to go in order to simplify your life in key ways. You have a good eye for detail and a real desire to cut out waste.
The 8-9 is perhaps the most opportune period of an already good month. There can be nice feelings about your career/reputation and optimism about your future. You'll feel stronger if you feel there is meaning in what you do, and this is likely now. You are less likely to dwell, and more interested in living in the present, looking forward to what's coming next. Ideas are fresh and insights can come that involve your life path, career path, resources, work, or money. Others tend to warm up to you and treat you especially well. There is a New Moon on the 8th that adds to this feeling of turning over a new leaf. Innovative ideas can take seed now.
A Mars-Jupiter connection on the 13th is also very supportive. This boosts your courage and encourages you to take action on a personal or professional matter. Support can come from behind the scenes or from unexpected sources. Your own personal charisma is strong.
The Sun's move into your home and family sector on the 19th introduces a new theme in which some of your attention shifts to domestic improvements. This theme will flesh out more fully in March, but for now, you're dreaming up ways to make your home life more inviting.
With your ruler retrograde and opposing Chiron, peaking on the 22-23, some self-doubt and insecurities can emerge. This is a time for addressing any feelings of guilty or unworthiness that may be holding you back from realizing the full potential of Jupiter's positive influence on your career and ability to lead or take charge. Donít let anyone, not even your own inner voice, take the wind from your sails. The Full Moon on the 22nd further awakens a desire to perform, do your best, and answer your calling.
The 24-26 and then the 29th are very strong for appreciation of your ideas and input. You're showing your more responsible side, but also demonstrating your unique take on life. This is a good time for presenting a project, publishing a think piece, enrolling in a course, and reaching out to others. You are communicating with authority.
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...
