Do you have a little more get up and go or does it seem as though arguments are breaking out left, right and centre? You have planetary power on your side, and not only can you succeed in your endeavours but people who have not considered you a contender may be about to sit up and take notice. Spurred by love and passion is there anything or anyone you cannot win? A relationship could be at a critical point and especially on or near the 12th and 27th unless you are ready to cut the ties that bind, neither give nor accept an ultimatum.
There is a misconception that astrologers can see the future as if we were watching scenes playing out on a cinema screen. We open our ephemerides planetary timetable and take endless notes on when the alignments are at their strongest and what they might mean for this person, that country or this event. Often it can seem as if fate has the upper hand, but although we cannot prevent every event that happens to us we can choose what we do in the wake of it. We have free will.
So, The last year of the Teenies and the bridge to the Twenties — a decade that will change the world map, whether in terms of the land itself or in geo-political terms. And with a degree of harmony between Saturn, Uranus, Pluto and Neptune in , this has the potential to be a great year. A year in which solutions can be found, or at least worked toward, in some of the most pressing global problems, including those inspired by climate change.
Uranus entered Taurus in mid-May , but then moved back into Aries and will remain there until March of Uranus is the revolutionary of the planets, the innovator and the iconoclast, so its transit of this Venus-ruled earth sign for the next seven years is going to produce some exciting developments in architecture, technology, engineering, food, the beauty business, farming and agriculture.
But we can also expect financial collapses and the destruction of places and buildings of historical significance. Already in we witnessed the loss of two iconic museums in Glasgow and Brazil due to fires; and unprecedented hurricanes and typhoons devastated parts of the world from Indonesia to Hawaii.
We spend more money, enjoy taking holidays and getting out of our comfort zones. Then again, the last time Jupiter transited Sagittarius was in , and we can all remember what happened when the sub-prime mortgage market collapsed: it was the precipitator to the global recession. And is looking distinctly troublesome. The number Three is an harmonious number: it promotes optimism and stimulates communications. We stretch our boundaries in a Three year and reach out to people in different countries and embrace different cultures.
Once Mars enters the 3rd house on the 26th, you can more easily turn thoughts into written words or action.
If you are looking for an opportunity to transform your relationship with your family the last week of the month could hold an opportunity for breakthrough. There is an old issue or two to lay to rest so that you can restore much needed peace and harmony within yourself. The transit of Mars and Venus through your Sun sign is already in progress as the month begins.
This has ignited your intensity and passion. All this makes for a disorienting entry into the merriest month of all. Are you looking for more disillusionment or joy during the holidays? There is great power to heal and uplift in what you have say and share with others. You are at a turning point in accessing the self-trust that will allow to more freely express that part of you. Whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, or Kwanza with your tribe, it will be a very special time for you. Happy Birthday to visionary, fun loving Sagittarius! Jupiter, the ruler of your Sun, is now arriving at the midpoint of your house of friends.
Saturn is retrograde so it is important to reality check your plans and ideas. Fiery, energetic Mars moves into Sag on the 25th ratcheting up your intensity, so be cognizant of your impact on those around you. There is a Full Moon in your 8th house of transformation on the 26th. You are in store for a powerful shift in the last week of the month. In the first week of the month, benevolent, expansive Jupiter transits the heart of your 10th house of career and receives great support from the Sun and Neptune.
Creative opportunities are abundant. If you have artistic or healing talents this is a great time to expand them or consider turning them into a career. Just allow them to percolate and let the miracle unfold on its own. Miracles happen by allowing them to happen and not by making them happen. This transit is not so much about tension with others as it is about acknowledging and understanding mutual needs and renovating the relationship accordingly.
Around the 27th you will likely get more perspective on this. New talents and interests are beginning to percolate now to be revealed and will be revealed in their fullness over time. Your 6th house… health and healing as well as job and life direction… is highlighted this month. Saturn retrograde in this house until March asks you to consider these areas of your life more deeply. This will be a great period to problem solve health issues, to develop a preventative health approach, to focus on diet, to start an exercise routine, and so on.
On the other hand, uncertainties about your job may surface. You call it as you see it, but who's listening? You need to do better than that if you want to really communicate. Use your scientific mind to cook up explanations everyone can understand.
Find clever applications for every little idea, and that's your strategy right there. If they perceive you as a creative thinker and fixer-upper, you'll be going somewhere good. And if, along the way, you finally complete your transformation from a noisy protester to a results-oriented prophet, there's an excellent chance that you'll arrive in style.
No matter how exciting some new endeavor or angle might seem, don't lose sight of your original purpose. It's easy now to be drawn toward a flashy but risky approach, but you need to maintain your focus.
Actually, this is a good test for you. Since you're naturally goal-oriented, it's good for you to experience a bit of greener-grass syndrome from time to time. Whatever it is that suddenly looks so surefire and enticing, resist the urge to chase it. Instead, stay on task for your current project. You can move ahead once you know exactly what you're doing.
Be alert and ready to move. Don't be afraid to voice your opinions about who's truly free and who's enslaved to what. Show that you're determined to make things right for everyone. So are you a seer and a savior, or a micro-manager and a busybody? Does it matter? As far as you're concerned, it's out with the old and in with the new.
Just one day of this mood will turn your world around, or at least rearrange the furniture. Coffee might help you achieve this state, although it's amazing what can happen naturally if you tune in. The universe is an interesting, unpredictable place at the moment. You should welcome the chance for deep communications with your friends and loved ones.
This goes for strangers and acquaintances, too, even though the outcome of these interactions will be hard to predict. For now, you don't care as much about the end result as you do about the process of connection. If you can, clear your schedule for the day. That way, you'll be ready for any person or encounter that comes knocking on your door. In spite of being crazy busy with your mad skills, you're probably one of the sanest people on the block. You have a head for business, a nose for opportunity and a keen eye for justice.
That alone makes you a participant instead of just another passenger. So even as you wade into this soup of possibilities, ready to help yourself, be sure to advocate for those who can't speak up. Pat yourself on your heroic back. Another day of this sudden leadership will guarantee your new status as a champion. Is your wanton life something you want to brag about?
Is your extravagant style worth celebrating when it would make you blush during thriftier times? Maybe you like shocking people out of their stupor. Maybe you just like to entertain.
Who knows why you do what you do? But keep one eye on your budget, OK? And make it a sharp eye, too. The piper might be expecting payment sooner than you think. Dance with care today, and keep one hand on your credit or debit card at all times. Being different is a good thing today. People are getting a kick out of your flair, not to mention your quirky sense of humor.
Your curiosity is leading you here, there and everywhere. You're flexible and accepting, and that's wonderful. But that's not all, folks. This time, you might even be the agent of change. So put your thinking cap on, and turn that bright, inquisitive eye toward any part of your life or the world around you that could use a little revamping. Anything that isn't working can change for the better under your deft touch. So you're feeling uneasy. Maybe you're aware of an unusual energy at work around you.
Perhaps you feel like burying your head in the sand today. Still, that's no reason to resign yourself to feeling strange or grumpy. You can find it within yourself to break out of your emotional bonds and dance with the spirit of the age. It shouldn't be hard for you to get your heart around the feeling, because you follow your heart in most situations anyway. Doing so could transform a challenging period into a blissful one. Your confidence builds today.
Suddenly, you find you not only have the courage to govern others, you possess the inspiration to promote much-needed change. People are looking to you for guidance, so you may have to step into the spotlight whether you want to or not. Use this as a chance to make something positive happen. You have the ability to be a wise, gracious leader. It's also in you to be a really good, devoted and dependable friend. And really, could anyone possibly ask more of you than that?
You recognize the need for change in the world, and you sincerely want to help. At the same time, you're conscious of the importance of pulling in your resources and guarding them carefully. You're quite the paradox: First a cheapskate, then a philanthropist.
You're likely to confuse almost everyone today while you figure things out. Maybe you're operating entirely without a plan, which is unusual for you. It's good you're so attuned to the details that you can make minor adjustments as needed. Mix conscience and class today. You're honorable, graceful and no one loves a good party more than you, but now it's time to make changes that really matter. So forget celebrity fundraisers and awards ceremonies.
The real quality is in the giving. Put that sharp mind of yours to work and come up with something truly innovative, something to benefit everyone. If you're not sure what that might be, pay attention to your heart. This is your core, and that's all that matters now. You're acting cold, distant and suspicious of anyone putting out a new vibe.
OK, so why now? Do you want to invite trouble? Are you trying to reinvent the wheel when some newer technology is making the world go around? As long as you're being so distrustful, you should navigate with utmost caution today. This means questioning your own basic assumptions, too. If you're wrong about something that essential, you could be wasting a lot of time and good will. Now is the time for faith. Try to believe. With all your wheeling and dealing, you could sell the Brooklyn Bridge to five different people in just a few hours.
But instead of always trying to make another few bucks, why not put all your horse-trading energy toward actually winning the race? OK, maybe you need to redefine what winning means. Your talents will be noticed today, so wouldn't it be a good idea to attract praise instead of anger? Keep on developing your public-spirited side.
The more you do for your community, the more you'll like it here. Change your normal perspective today by taking a progressive view of your work and relationships. How can you improve your connections with others? How can you make more constructive contributions to projects? It won't hurt to try out a new way of looking at life. You might treat a current obstacles as an interesting, manageable challenge. You're used to receiving both accomplishments and accolades, but don't expect either.
It isn't about collecting trophies, though you wouldn't refuse any if they were offered. Forget about old school, new school, and too cool for school. None of that matters now.
