The Moon is in Pisces all day, and we are inclined to daydream and perhaps
stray from our regular routine a little. A First Quarter Moon occurs when the
Sun in Sagittarius forms a square with the Pisces Moon at 10:13 AM EST. There is
a crisis theme surrounding any quarter Moon phase, as we feel compelled
to take action. Shortly after, we are made aware of how our actions
affect those close to us, perhaps through trial and error. Whatever
project or initiative we began around the New Moon on December 2nd is
now off the ground, and it may face its first obstacles.
The ball is in your court this month, dear Sagittarius, and you're enjoying a surge of optimism, especially from the second week forward. The more positive energy you radiate, the more opportunities open up. The New Moon on the 2nd occurs in your sign, giving you an energetic boost to put personal plans into motion, as well as to take steps to put forth the best version of "you". After a period of some withdrawal, you are now more willing to experience life to its fullest. You attract the right people and the right resources, and encounters with others are consistently working to your advantage. Reasonable speculation may pay off around the 12th. Connecting intimately with another person boosts your sense of security. A partner may have an important revelation around the 17th, or you could see a relationship in a whole new light. You're likely to experience gradual but noticeable changes to your romantic and creative pursuits from mid-month. You begin to feel freer and more courageous about expressing yourself uniquely and spiritedly - creative blocks clear up, particularly when it comes to writing and speaking. Unpredictability in your romantic life continues to be a theme, but you're more willing to go along with it. Group and friend activity is dynamic this month. You might have more courage to make a new friend or to take the lead in a group or friendship setting. The main thing to watch for this month is finances, possessions, and resources in general. While there is an inclination to spend more, a retrograde of Venus in your finances sector from the 21st and through to the end of January points to a need for careful review. Take the time to re-think your sources of income and how you spend your cash during this period, and avoid making any major purchases until February. As well, there may be some delays on the work front to deal with. Otherwise, generally speaking, December is about being bold and brave, and for making no apologies for being yourself.
close relationships are in strong focus this year, Sagittarians in 2013 tend to
be a little more private and introspective than usual. You might meet somebody
who deepens your intimate life in wonderful ways, opening you up to new ways of
expressing yourself intimately; or those of you who are already attached might
deepen their relationship similarly. New depths (and heights) can be experienced
now and add to your inner glow. Love matters should be quite strong this year,
with significant partnerships a great focus. Partnerships fare better than more
casual love relationships, the latter being a bit of a wild card in your life
right now, as it was last year. Single Sagittarians can be meeting some exciting
and unusual people, but permanency is in question. People may come and go, or
your own tastes may vacillate. Money matters are significantly improved compared
to recent years. Even so, you may be downsizing with personal possessions and
going through restructuring, possibly putting some business projects to rest.
You can be very resourceful when it comes to recycling or using what you already
own in different ways. The sale of some possessions can figure strongly, or you
might find unique products to sell and market. Creative Sagittarians are
breaking out of ruts and exploring highly unique or alternative art forms. Many
of you are exploring new hobbies or different forms of recreation and
entertainment. Dreams may be troubling at times, as some of you could be
wrestling with guilt or lack of closure when it comes to matters of the past. It
will be of enormous benefit if you can settle these matters, because if they are
left to fester, they can undermine your progress. Financial support in the form
of loans or shared resources tends to be easier to come by in the second half of
the year, but it will be important to watch your borrowing habits. Many of you
are thinking about your dream home or idyllic domestic conditions, and your
chances of turning at least some of your dreams into a reality are strong,
particularly in July. There can be good publicity this year, and your ability to
meet others halfway (and often further) tends to open up social possibilities
and opportunities. You are generous by nature with your ruling planet expansive
Jupiter. With Jupiter moving through two sectors of your chart associated with
partners and close friends, you are directing much of this generosity to
significant others. Enjoy yourself as you do, but watch for overblown
expectations or promises that may be hard to keep at a later date.
Major players affecting your romance and partnership sectors this year are
your own ruler, Jupiter, and Uranus, dear Sagittarius.
With Uranus in your romance sector for many years, there will be times when
the more positive elements to the planet's influence are stronger, and other
periods when the more negative elements of Uranus' influence are experienced.
This has a lot to do with the aspects Uranus is making in any given year, and
also to do with your own working of the energies.
Uranus has the effect of speeding up our lives, endowing us with more courage
but also powerful impulses. There is a need for change and this can seem to come
from within, or can be felt to originate from without. You might feel that a
particular area of life has become too humdrum, too boring, or too routine, and
have a strong desire to effect change. If you are not in touch with this,
however, it can feel as if others are pushing changes on you.
Applying all of this energy to your romances, we know that this area of your
life is a bit of a wild card. In 2013, changes can be very abrupt, as Uranus is
forming some difficult aspects. There is some need to release you from the past,
and this can seem extreme at times. You may be more attracted to people who
personify Uranus in certain ways: they may be free-spirited, individualistic,
and possibly even eccentric on a romantic level. Or, you could attract these
types of people into your experience. Communication can be a major key when it
comes to making romantic connections, and many of you could be experimenting
with online dating. There can be new forms of recreation and entertainment that
interest you this year. Love interests may come and go in sudden ways, seemingly
out of the blue. You can be very impulsive when it comes to starting or ending
Committed partnerships tend to play out better than casual love affairs this
year. Jupiter's presence in your partnership sector until mid-year can bring
helpful, happy people into your life. Commitments tend to be easier to make, and
those that don't work anymore might effectively be replaced with happier ones.
Opportunities for partnering are stronger than usual.
While Uranus in your fifth house brings a rather experimental approach to
love, Jupiter moving through your eighth house in the second half of the year
(and into 2014) tends to bring more ease to the deeper aspects of any love
relationship. You are more natural and open when it comes to sharing yourself on
intimate levels. Your intimate life can feel richer and more rewarding. While
some Sagittarians will be playing a little more in their love lives in 2013,
others will be slowing down and enjoying the more languid moments. There can be
someone who helps open you up to new ways of relating. Your private life may
feel like a magical secret garden at times during this transit.
When the ruler of your romance sector, Mars, travels through your romance
sector, this can bring fun experiences into your life. In 2013, this occurs from
March 12-April 20. Mars in your partnership sector from May 31-July 13 can
stimulate (and sometimes over-stimulate) a close relationship.
