This is a good time for seeing what needs improving
in our lives, as well as for doing editing, tidying, and reorganizing or
recycling work. We are able to get to the bottom of things now with the Sun and
Pluto forming a trine. Our abilities to concentrate and focus help us achieve
what we set out to do. Endurance, the power to achieve, an opportunity to draw
upon our past and to capitalize on resources, and strategy are all themes of
this influence. Leadership skills are in focus and strong. We are more able to
connect with others in terms of shared goals and interests. The focus now is on
eliminating negative or superficial elements in our lives. Even so, with Venus
heading towards a station, exact tomorrow, there may be some problems seeing
things clearly, making important decision making not advisable. The Moon is in
Gemini all day, and the Last Quarter Moon occurs this morning. After basking in
the awareness symbolized by the full light of the Moon at the time of last
week's Full Moon, we disperse our knowledge and come to a point when we need to
sort out what works for us--and what doesn't--in preparation for next week's New
Moon, when something new is born once again. This is not the best time to start
a major project, as the decreasing light of the Moon symbolizes a descent into
unconsciousness. It's time to begin finishing up the details of that which was
conceived at the last New Moon.
There are many strong influences occurring in your chart that point to
increased commitment to realizing success, more determination, increased
ambition, and the need for more structure and order in your life, dear
Sagittarius. This theme is with you for at least the coming year, and it's only
just beginning to take flight, helped along with the Solar Eclipse on the 13th.
Jupiter is approaching a powerful aspect with Pluto, and while it's only exact
next month, you're getting a hint of it now. Ambition to build your resources
and employ your talents is building. You are feeling a more powerful desire to
advance. Whatever your particular definition of success, you are beginning to
hunger for it. Saturn returns to your sign on the 17th, this time for the long
haul (until the end of 2017), and this influence is all about order and
structure. It's also a transit that's designed to build your credibility and
confidence, even if it doesn't always feel like it along the way. What you're
moving towards is a more realistic understanding of your capabilities and
limits. Helping you along but also reminding you of your ambitions and ability
to achieve them is Jupiter, your ruler, at the top of your solar chart. The
cosmos wants you to be more responsible, and you're sure to learn that there are
many benefits from choosing this path. With so many signs of increased ambition,
it may seem like nothing is stopping you now, but a Jupiter-Neptune opposition
in the middle of the month can bring about a test or a brief slowdown. You may
be wrestling with your own insecurities or a lack of solid support, possibly
from family. Some of you may be feeling that you don't have a solid anchor.This
is something that you can and will overcome, and you'll be better off for it.
Even with all of this attention to game plans, career, and responsibilities,
your personal life is also moving forward. Venus turns direct and together with
Mars for most of the month, harmonizes with your sign and electric Uranus in
your romance and creativity sector. This can serve to open your eyes to new and
exciting people, but it's also a good time to stoke the fires of a current
romance with activities that take you away from the regular routine. There can
be excitement, motivation, and possibly even love connected to schooling,
travel, or online activities. The last week of the month can be a bit of a
rollercoaster ride both professionally and personally. The Lunar Eclipse opens
your eyes to your feelings for someone or a current creative project.
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
