both the Sun and Venus in hard aspect to Saturn today, we could face challenges
to self-expression. We may feel a little discouraged on a social level if we
don't receive the feedback we crave. Gaining what we want is challenging under this
influence, possibly due to negative expectations or a tendency to need more than what
is possible. Difficulties socializing can occur if we are a little more
sensitive to rejection than usual. There may be a lesson or reality check when
it comes to matters of the heart, or with finances. The Moon is in Virgo and
void all day, so while it's a good time for head down following of the rules and
making important edits, it's not the best time for new beginnings.
While there is continuing focus on your social life this month, dear Sagittarius, career, responsibilities, and life plan goals are in strong focus, although they do have a social element to them. Very creative dynamic energy is with you, particularly after the 9th, for manifesting your goals or for furthering your career goals. Money matters are likely improving the more energy you put in the work you do, as you're enjoying it more than usual. This trend will be with you for many months going forward, but right now, motivation is powerful. Your ruler, Jupiter, is in excellent shape this month, connecting beautifully with Venus, goddess of love, energetic and courageous Mars, powerful and resourceful Pluto, and inventive Uranus. This is a time for really shining and getting noticed for your performance. You may have the chance to use your most natural talents and skills in practical ways. There is courage for trying new things and even for starting something from scratch through redesign or renovation. Seek out connections with people who can further your career or personal interests. Through others' faith in you, or wisdom, you are encouraged to reach your potential. Projects or even finances might be turned around. The pace may be hectic, but you're generally enjoying it. If there have been problems with friends, you have the chance to make serious improvements, first with Mercury's direct motion from the 9th, and then with the power of the New Moon on the 12th, which can help to wipe the slate clean with someone you care about, if necessary. Love relationships can certainly improve this month, particularly after the 9th.
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.
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...
