Understanding a Sagittarius
If you look at the symbol of the archer you will gain a good, intuitive understanding of a person born under this astrological sign. The development of archery was humanity’s first refinement of the power to hunt and wage war. The ability to shoot an arrow far beyond the ordinary range of a spear extended humanity’s horizons, wealth, personal will and power.
Today, instead of using bows and arrows we project our power with fuels and mighty engines, but the essential reason for using these new powers remains the same. These powers represent our ability to extend our personal sphere of influence – and this is what Sagittarius is all about. Sagittarians are always seeking to expand their horizons, to cover more territory and increase their range and scope. This applies to all aspects of their lives: economic, social and intellectual.
Sagittarians are noted for the development of the mind – the higher intellect – which understands philosophical and spiritual concepts. This mind represents the higher part of the psychic nature and is motivated not by self-centred considerations but by the light and grace of a Higher Power. Thus, Sagittarians love higher education of all kinds. They might be bored with formal schooling but they love to study on their own and in their own way. A love of foreign travel and interest in places far away from home are also noteworthy characteristics of the Sagittarian type.
If you give some thought to all these Sagittarian attributes you will see that they spring from the inner Sagittarian desire to develop. To travel more is to know more, to know more is to be more, to cultivate the higher mind is to grow and to reach more. All these traits tend to broaden the intellectual – and indirectly, the economic and material – horizons of the Sagittarian.
The generosity of the Sagittarian is legendary. There are many reasons for this. One is that Sagittarians seem to have an inborn consciousness of wealth. They feel that they are rich, that they are lucky, that they can attain any financial goal – and so they feel that they can afford to be generous. Sagittarians do not carry the burdens of want and limitation which stop most other people from giving generously. Another reason for their generosity is their religious and philosophical idealism, derived from the higher mind. This higher mind is by nature generous because it is unaffected by material circumstances. Still another reason is that the act of giving tends to enhance their emotional nature. Every act of giving seems to be enriching, and this is reward enough for the Sagittarian.
Sagittarians generally entice wealth. They either attract it or create it. They have the ideas, energy and talent to make their vision of paradise on Earth a reality. However, mere wealth is not enough. Sagittarians want luxury – earning a comfortable living seems small and insignificant to them.
In order for Sagittarians to attain their true earning potential they must develop better managerial and organizational skills. They must learn to set limits, to arrive at their goals through a series of attainable sub-goals or objectives. It is very rare that a person goes from rags to riches overnight. But a long, drawn-out process is difficult for Sagittarians. Like Leos, they want to achieve wealth and success quickly and impressively. They must be aware, however, that this over-optimism can lead to unrealistic financial ventures and disappointing losses. Of course, no zodiac sign can bounce back as quickly as Sagittarius, but only needless heartache will be caused by this attitude. Sagittarians need to maintain their vision – never letting it go – but they must also work towards it in practical and efficient ways.
Career and Public Image
Sagittarians are big thinkers. They want it all: money, fame, glamour, prestige, public acclaim and a place in history. They often go after all these goals. Some attain them, some do not – much depends on each individual’s personal horoscope. But if Sagittarians want to attain public and professional status they must understand that these things are not conferred to enhance one’s ego but as rewards for the amount of service that one does for the whole of humanity. If and when they figure out ways to serve more, Sagittarians can rise to the top.
The ego of the Sagittarian is gigantic – and perhaps rightly so. They have much to be proud of. If they want public acclaim, however, they will have to learn to tone down the ego a bit, to become more humble and self-effacing, without falling into the trap of self-denial and self-abasement. They must also learn to master the details of life, which can sometimes elude them.
At their jobs Sagittarians are hard workers who like to please their bosses and co-workers. They are dependable, trustworthy and enjoy a challenge. Sagittarians are friendly to work with and helpful to their colleagues. They usually contribute intelligent ideas or new methods that improve the work environment for everyone. Sagittarians always look for challenging positions and careers that develop their intellect, even if they have to work very hard in order to succeed. They also work well under the supervision of others, although by nature they would rather be the supervisors and increase their sphere of influence. Sagittarians excel at professions that allow them to be in contact with many different people and to travel to new and exciting locations.
Love and Relationships
Sagittarians love freedom for themselves and will readily grant it to their partners. They like their relationships to be fluid and ever-changing. Sagittarians tend to be fickle in love and to change their minds about their partners quite frequently.
Sagittarians feel threatened by a clearly defined, well-structured relationship, as they feel this limits their freedom. The Sagittarian tends to marry more than once in life.
Sagittarians in love are passionate, generous, open, benevolent and very active. They demonstrate their affections very openly. However, just like an Aries they tend to be egocentric in the way they relate to their partners. Sagittarians should develop the ability to see others’ points of view, not just their own. They need to develop some objectivity and cool intellectual clarity in their relationships so that they can develop better two-way communication with their partners. Sagittarians tend to be overly idealistic about their partners and about love in general. A cool and rational attitude will help them to perceive reality more clearly and enable them to avoid disappointment.
Home and Domestic Life
Sagittarians tend to grant a lot of freedom to their family. They like big homes and many children and are one of the most fertile signs of the zodiac. However, when it comes to their children Sagittarians generally err on the side of allowing them too much freedom. Sometimes their children get the idea that there are no limits. However, allowing freedom in the home is basically a positive thing – so long as some measure of balance is maintained – for it enables all family members to develop as they should.
Sagittarius Horoscope for 2017
Saturn, your financial planet, has been in your sign for the past two years and will be there almost till the end of the year ahead. While this is bringing prosperity and financial opportunity, it has made you a bit cold, business-like and standoffish to others. The social life has been affected by this. More on this later.
The year ahead looks prosperous, with Saturn remaining in your sign almost all year. On December 21, he moves into your money house – a strong position. He is powerful on your behalf. More on this later.
Jupiter, the ruler of your Horoscope, spends most of the year in your 11th house. This is a year for friendships and group activities. A year for manifesting ‘fondest hopes and wishes’. New and important friends are coming into the picture. On October 11, Jupiter will move into your spiritual 12th house, and spirituality will start to become important. This will be the case well into next year. You enter a period of spiritual growth.
Spirituality is important in other ways too. Pluto, your spiritual planet, has been in your money house since 2008. Your spiritual understanding and insight is having concrete bottom-line results and this is a long-term trend. Pluto will be here for many more years.
Neptune has been in your 4th house since 2012 and will be there for many more years. The family relationship is becoming elevated and spiritualized – a long-term process.
Uranus has been in your 5th house since 2011. Children and children figures in your life have been more rebellious and difficult to handle. Give them as much freedom as possible, so long as it isn’t destructive. They should be taught safe ways to test the limits of their bodies.
Your areas of greatest interest this year are the body and image; finance; home and family; children, fun and creativity; friends, groups, group and online activities (until October 11); and spirituality (from October 11 onwards).
Your paths of greatest fulfilment this year are career (until April 29); religion, philosophy, higher education and foreign travel (from April 29 onwards); friends, groups, group and online activities (until October 11); and spirituality (from October 11 onwards).
(Please note that this is an astrological perspective on health and not a medical one. In days of yore there was no difference, both of these perspectives were identical. But now there could be quite a difference. For a medical perspective, please consult your doctor or health practitioner.)
Health is much improved over last year and will improve even further towards the end of the year. In the meantime there are two long-term planets stressing you out. Of itself this is not enough to cause disease, but still overall energy is not what it should be. The periods to watch this year are when the short-term planets put additional stress on you. This is when you become more vulnerable to problems. These periods are from February 19 to March 20; April 20 to June 21; and August 22 to September 22. Be sure to rest and relax more over these times and do your best to maintain high energy levels.
I would rate your health as OK. Not spectacular but adequate. Your empty 6th house (only short-term planets move through there) is a good sign. You don’t have a need to overly focus here.
There is much you can do to improve your health and energy and prevent problems from developing. Give more attention to the following – the vulnerable areas of your chart:
- The liver and thighs. These are always important for Sagittarius. Regular thigh massage should be a part of your normal health regime. Regular herbal liver cleansings too. (Liver action has been sluggish in recent years and needs more energy.)
- The neck and throat. These too are always important for Sagittarius. Regular neck massage will release tension and strengthen the whole area. Craniosacral therapy is also good here.
- The kidneys and hips. These are also another important area. Hips (and buttocks) should be regularly massaged. A herbal kidney cleanse every now and then would also be good – especially if you feel under the weather.
- The heart. This has only become important in recent years (since Christmas 2014). You’re very much involved in worldly affairs these days – especially business. Avoid worry and anxiety, the two emotions that stress the heart. Develop more faith.
Venus as your health planet indicates the importance of social harmony in health. For you, good health means a healthy love and social life. Even if you have no physical symptoms, if the love life isn’t right, you probably won’t feel well. If the discord is prolonged, it can produce pathologies in the body. So, if health problems arise (God forbid), restore harmony in the social life as quickly as you can.
Venus is a fast-moving planet. She will move through all the signs and houses of your horoscope in any given year. Thus there are many short-term trends in health – different needs and different effective therapies – depending on where she is and the aspects she receives. These are best covered in the monthly reports.
Venus will make one of her rare (once every two years) retrogrades this year – from March 4 to April 15. Avoid making dramatic dietary or health regime changes during that period. Do more research. Your thinking on these matters is not realistic then.
Home and Family
This has been a troubling area these past few years and has required much of your attention and focus. This trend continues in the year ahead, but is less severe than in the past two years. By the end of the year, things at home get much happier.
A parent or parent figure in your life seems very stressed out. You and this person are having financial disagreements. Family obligations seem to stress you financially.
Family members are much more sensitive than usual and are easily hurt. You are by nature an ‘up front’ kind of person. You say what you want to say forthrightly. You tend to be bluntly honest. But this doesn’t sit well with family members. They can see this as ‘cruelty’ or gross insensitivity. From your point of view you don’t see it this way. You’re just being forthright. But they would see it this way. So, make more of an effort to be more diplomatic in your speech and opinions.
The family’s sensitivities go deeper than just speech. They tend to react to voice tone and body language too. If, for example, you were annoyed by something that happened at work, and you came home and had a conversation, your tone of irritation would impact on them. (They could feel it was directed at them.) A little more care in these matters will save much heartache down the road.
Finance, as we mentioned, is an important area this year. Family could feel that you care more about your business affairs than you do for them. From their perspective you’re putting business first.
There is a Solar Eclipse on February 26 that not only occurs in your 4th house but also impacts on Neptune, the ruler of that house. Family and family relationships seem very stressed by this. There could be personal, life-changing dramas in their lives. Passions run high. Sometimes repairs are needed in the home. Be more patient with the family at this time.
On October 11, as Jupiter moves into Scorpio, moves could happen. You will start to get on better with the family and especially with a parent or parent figure. But the financial disagreements are not fully resolved until the end of the year.
When Jupiter moves into Scorpio the family circle will expand – usually through birth or marriage. Sometimes the circle expands through meeting people who ‘play the role’ of family in your life.
Children and children figures in your life have been difficult to handle for many years now. They don’t respond well to the ‘authoritarian’ approach. They are more rebellious than usual. However, if they are made to understand the ‘why’ of your requests, things should go much better. Many children these days are addicted to the internet and high-tech gadgetry, but yours more so than others.
You always like large, spacious homes Sagittarius, but these days (especially since 2012) waterfront homes are most attractive. If you’re planning major repairs or renovations, January 1–28, June 4 to July 20, and December 9–31 are good times. If you’re redecorating or otherwise beautifying the home, January 3 to February 3 and February 18 to March 20 seem good for this.
Finance and Career
Prosperity has been happening since Christmas 2014 as your financial planet, Saturn, moved into your sign, and he remains here for almost all of the year ahead. The prosperity continues. Money is on your mind. You’re focused here.
You have naturally good intuition for the travel business, airlines, foreign investments and for-profit colleges, but now it is even better than normal. Invest in the things that you love – that interest you.
Of course, the best investment is in yourself. You’re spending on yourself these days. You’re dressing expensively and creating an image of wealth. Others are seeing you this way. The money people in your life are devoted to you, on your side and helping out. And you seem like a ‘money person’ in your own right – especially with others.
Personal appearance and overall presentation are very important financially and this could be reason for the spending. It’s more like a ‘business investment’ than vanity.
The good thing about your financial planet’s position in your own sign is that there’s nothing special you need to do to attract earnings or financial opportunities. These are seeking you out. You just go about your daily affairs and money will find you.
There is a down side to this, however. There could be a tendency to define yourself in terms of money. The financial statement is me. If I make more, then I am more. If I make less, then I’m somehow diminished. This can distort the financial judgement and lead to losses. You need to keep the ego out of the way in your financial decision making.
Generally you’re a risk taker in finance, but less so these past few years. This is a good thing. The financial judgement is sound and conservative (and will become more so after December 21). You have a good long-range perspective on wealth – a good sense of what an investment will be worth many years down the road.
These past few years (and this continues in the year ahead) has been a great time to set up savings and investment plans, budgets and the like. There’s something comforting about a good plan. Once it’s set up, you don’t need to think too much about it. Just follow it and wealth will happen more or less on schedule.
Pluto, as we have mentioned, has been in your money house for many years and will be there for many more to come. A Pluto transit is a long-term process. So, this shows that you’re forging your financial intuition. This is, and will become ever more so, an important tool in your financial arsenal – perhaps the most important one. But this transit also shows other things. Those of you of appropriate age are doing estate planning now. Younger Sagittarians have inherited substantial sums and now need to invest the windfalls properly. Taxes and estate issues are governing much of your financial decision making.
The North Node of the Moon will be in your 10th house until April 29. So the career should be going well – a source of fulfilment. This would also show strong and perhaps excessive ambition – which tends to success. Perhaps you’re more ambitious than you need to be.
After April 29 ambitions taper off and career is not such a big factor for you. Wealth is more important than status or prestige.
Love and Social Life
Your 7th house hasn’t been strong for some years now. Romance doesn’t seem a big issue this year. Some years are like that. Generally this shows a stable year tending towards the status quo. Those who are married will tend to stay married and singles will tend to stay single. You have a lot of social freedom this year. There’s nothing against marriage or a serious relationship, just lack of interest. The cosmos in not impelling you one way or the other.
The overall social life is another story. This is active and happy. But this social life is more about friendship – platonic kinds of relationships – not romance. You seem very focused here and proactive. You’re cultivating friendships and group activities. New and happy friendships are happening.
Your love planet, Mercury is, second to the Moon, the fastest moving of all the planets. He is also one of the most erratic. Sometimes he moves ultra-fast, sometimes slow, sometimes (four times this year) he moves backwards, sometimes he is motionless. This can make you seem fickle and difficult to please – difficult to figure out in love. Yes, at different times your needs and desires in love change. Sometimes one thing pleases you, sometimes another. Sometimes you show love one way, sometimes another. This is just your nature. You follow Mercury’s movements. This being the case, there are many short-term trends in love that depend on where Mercury is and the aspects he receives. These short-term trends are best covered in the monthly reports.
Anyone in love with a Sagittarius will have to learn many roles. He or she will need great flexibility.
Saturn, as we have mentioned, has been in your sign for some time now. While this has many good points, which we have mentioned, it is not the greatest aspect for love. We have written of this in previous years and the tendency is still in effect. You seem too serious, too business-like, too cool, too aloof and distant. Now, you’re not really like this. There is no warmer, more ebullient person on the planet than Sagittarius. Yet, these days, people can see you this way if you’re not careful. The Saturn influence is like a drug (a serious drug). You can be emanating this vibration or feeling without intending to. The solution, as we have said in previous years, is to make a project of sending love and warmth to others. Normally you wouldn’t have to do this, it would come out naturally. But now you must do it consciously. This will help the love life a lot.
Saturn will move out of your sign on December 21. The love life should improve after that.
What we’ve said applies to all of you but especially those of you in or working on the first, second or fourth marriage. Those working on the third marriage have excellent aspects this year. Serious romance is very likely.
Children and children figures in your life have beautiful romantic aspects this year. If they are of appropriate age, marriage could happen. Whatever their age they are making new and happy friendships. Siblings and sibling figures have a stable romantic year. Those who are married will tend to stay married, and singles will tend to stay single.
Your spiritual planet, Pluto, has been in your money house for many years, as we have mentioned. For you, spirituality – your spiritual understanding of how things work – is far from ‘pie in the sky’ abstraction. It has strong financial consequences. You’re always intuitive in finances, but now even more so. Yes, you put on an exterior of logic and finance-speak for the world, but in truth your intuition is the deciding factor.
We have written of this in previous years, but the trend (and process) is still in effect. You’re going deeper into the spiritual (not so much the worldly) laws of wealth. This is a huge subject. We don’t learn it in a few years. It’s not like getting a business degree. There are many personal experiments that need to be made. There is much delving into the subconscious blockages and human learning that has to be unpicked. We cannot access the spiritual supply with only intellectual knowledge. One must practise. One must contact the ‘spirit of affluence’ itself, allow it to come in and teach us how to be affluent. Affluence knows how. There is a need to set aside all ‘human wisdom’ on the subject and allow the pure spirit to teach us directly.
If you do this, and many of you are, you will see that the economic laws taught in school are not the way they are being taught. There is a ‘spiritual economics’ which supersedes all of that. You’re getting initiated into this ‘spiritual economics’ these days.
Spiritual economics is not concerned with any material condition. A person attuned to the Spiritual Affluence could be on a desert island and he or she would still be supplied with everything needed in that environment. Spiritual Affluence is never about how much we have, but about how much we can receive. In many cases (this is not true for you, but for many others) the wealth concepts – the mental containers – are not big enough to hold the spiritual supply. If one goes to the ocean with only a cup, one will only take away a cupful – though there are huge amounts of water to be had. If one comes with a barrel, one will take away a barrel – but that is not all there is to be had. The ocean doesn’t care how much you take. The thing is one must know that there IS an ocean there.
Your spiritual lessons will intensify after October 11 as Jupiter enters your 12th house. This will not only assist in finances, but in your personal growth and in your ability to handle the family.

You begin your year with most of the planets in the independent East of your chart. This will soon change. If there are important changes to be made in your personal life – in conditions and circumstance – now is the time to make them. It will be more difficult to make them later on. Success comes through personal initiative now.
The bottom half of your Horoscope is hugely dominant as the year begins – 80 per cent of the planets are energizing the lower half. From the 1st to the 6th and from the 22nd onwards, 90 per cent of the planets will be there. So ambition is not very strong this period. Career is not a big issue. Your 10th house is basically empty (only the Moon moves through there on the 15th and 16th) while your 4th house of home and family is ultra-powerful. The Horoscope gives a clear message. Focus on getting the home base in order. Focus on your emotional wellness. Now is the time to build up the forces for your next career push later on in the year. You are in the night time of your year. Night is for rest and recuperation. It is said that in winter nature dreams and in the spring she manifests her dreams outwardly. So it is with you. Now you dream of where you want your career to go, in your spring – the daytime of your year – you will act out your dreams.
The month ahead is prosperous. You entered a yearly financial peak last month on the 21st and this continues until the 19th. Your financial planet is still in your 1st house, prospering you, and he receives mostly good aspects.
This month is an excellent time for starting new projects or ventures. Perhaps even better than the Spring. Your personal solar cycle is waxing and so is the universal solar cycle. Most importantly the planetary momentum is overwhelmingly forward (which you won’t have in the spring). There is never less than 90 per cent of the planets in forward motion this month, and after the 7th all the planets will be forward. The 7th to the 12th and the 28th to the 31st would be the best times of the month to launch your new venture. (The Moon will be waxing and all the planets are moving forward.)
Health is good this month, but not perfect. There are a few planets stressing you out. You can enhance the health through foot massage and spiritual techniques from the 2nd onwards. You will respond very well to a spiritual healer if you feel under the weather.

Love has improved over last month. Your love planet Mercury was retrograde last month (until January 8) and now he is moving forward – and very quickly. Perhaps the problem now is your changeability (fickleness?) in your love needs. On the other hand, love opportunities happen in different places and different ways this month. Until the 7th love opportunities happen as you handle your financial goals – and perhaps with people involved in your finances. Material wealth is the romantic turn-on. (This was the case all last month too.) From the 7th to the 25th you gravitate to those who have the gift of the gab. Good communication is a romantic turn-on. Intellectual intimacy is as important as the physical side. Your love planet in Aquarius shows that you gravitate to very brilliant kinds of people – scientists, astronomers, astrologers, inventors and innovators. Romantic meetings can happen online. After the 25th you crave emotional intimacy (though you still like the intellectual side). You also gravitate to spiritual kinds of people.
Mercury’s fast motion shows good social confidence. Probably you’re dating more. You seem to cover a lot of territory.
We have two eclipses this period. This is guaranteed to shake things up. The Lunar Eclipse of the 11th (in the Americas it’s on the 10th) occurs in your 9th house and impacts mostly on students at college level. There are dramatic changes to their educational plans. It is not advisable to be on the road or in the air over that period. It will bring shakeups in your place of worship and a testing of your religious and philosophical beliefs. They get ‘reality therapy’. Some will have to be revised, some discarded altogether. The eclipsed planet, the Moon, is the ruler of your 8th house and this gives many messages. The spouse, partner or current love is forced to make important course corrections in their financial life. Most likely the thinking and strategy is unrealistic. The eclipse can bring encounters with death – close calls, near-death kinds of experiences, dreams of death, etc. The cosmos sends a gentle reminder to get more serious about life – it can end at any time. Avoid dangerous kinds of activities this period.
The Solar Eclipse of the 26th affects you more strongly. Reduce your schedule. (You should reduce your schedule from the 18th onwards anyway, but especially during this eclipse period.) This eclipse also impacts on college students, on your place of worship and on your religious and philosophical beliefs. The Sun is the ruler of your 9th house and these areas of life are getting shaken up by the two eclipses. But this one also impacts on the home and family, and especially one of the parents or parent figures in your life.

Your 4th house became powerful on February 18 and is still powerful until the 20th of this month. Most of the planets are still in the bottom half of your chart. Your 10th house of career is still empty (only the Moon moves through there on the 11th and 12th), so the focus remains on home and family. This is the magical, mystical midnight hour of your year. This is when miracles happen – but internally. They are unseen. This is when the patterns are set for the day ahead. So respect the midnight hour. With a good night’s sleep we have a good chance of a successful day. Without it, the day most likely won’t be successful.
Health needs watching until the 20th. The most important thing is to get enough rest. You can further enhance the health through head, face and scalp massage. Craniosacral therapy is also good. Mars, the ruler of these areas, moves into your 6th house of health on the 10th and spends the rest of the month there. Exercise is also good – as vigorous as you can handle. It’s very important to keep good muscle tone. Health will improve dramatically after the 20th.
Your health planet goes retrograde on the 4th, so avoid making major changes to the diet or health regime after that date. If changes have to be made, do a lot more research and study. You will think differently about these things next month.
Finances have been more stressful since February 18. This is the case until the 20th. Of course earnings will happen, but they come with much more work and effort. Things are more complicated than usual. But after the 20th it is all systems go. The financial planet, Saturn, starts to receive wonderful aspects.
When the Sun enters Aries on the 20th you enter one of your yearly personal pleasure peaks. A holiday period. A time for enjoying your life and doing the things that you most love to do. As you do the things you love, love and romance will find you. Your love planet Mercury enters the 5th house on the 13th.
You are a love-at-first-sight kind of person by nature, and especially so after the 13th. You could be too impulsive in relationships. You leap before you look. The good thing about this is that relationships can start and develop very quickly.

You’re still very much in a yearly personal pleasure peak until the 19th. It is time for R&R. Time to let go of your cares and worries and do the things that you love to do. Miraculously you will find that the things you worried about are resolved naturally. Often after a period of fun, we see solutions to problems that we didn’t see before. Too much focus on the problem was blocking the solution.
With the Sun in your 5th house this is a month for pleasure-oriented travel. Students are enjoying their studies and tend to be successful. Children and children figures in your life are more fertile this period (if they are of appropriate age). They are also prospering – especially from the 19th onwards. However, with their financial planet retrograde until the 15th they need more caution in finances.
Your personal finances are excellent until the 19th. They are good afterwards too, but much better before the 19th. Saturn, your financial planet starts to travel backwards on the 6th and this will continue for several months. You shouldn’t shut down all financial activity – you can’t – but you should avoid, where possible, making major purchases or investments. Put them on the back-burner and study them further. It is guaranteed that you will have a different attitude to them a few months from now. These things are not as urgent as you might think. In the meantime you buy your necessities, of course – the groceries, clothing, etc. The important thing now is to gain clarity on your financial life and dealings. When this happens you will be in a good position to implement big plans when Saturn starts to move forward again in August.
Health is good this month. It is especially good until the 19th, but it is reasonable afterwards too. You respond very well to spiritual-healing techniques from the 2nd to the 28th – most of the month. Foot massage is also a great ‘pick me up’.
Love is complicated this month. For one thing, your love planet Mercury goes retrograde on the 9th and this tends to weaken the social confidence and judgement. Mars will enter the 7th house on the 21st and spend the rest of the month there. This is not especially good for love as it tends to conflict and power struggles. Since Mars rules your 5th house of fun, it shows a lack of seriousness about love. This aspect favours a love affair rather than a real romance.
Avoid speculations after the 21st.

The planetary power has been in the Western, social sector of your chart since February and now the planets are at their maximum Western position. These days life is about others and not so much about your self-interest. If conditions or circumstance disturb you, make note of them. The time for making changes will come in a few months. Your good happens through others now. Let others have their way so long as it isn’t destructive. On the 20th the Sun enters your 7th house of love and you begin a yearly love and social peak. Love should be much improved this month as Mercury, your love planet, starts moving forward again on the 3rd. The mind is clear about love. There is more social confidence.
Mercury spends most of the month, from the 6th onwards, in your 6th house of health and work. Thus there is an attraction to health professionals and people at the workplace. There is more socializing with people at work. This also shows that for you – these days – good health also means good social health. If there are problems in love, the physical health can be affected. So, if problems arise restore harmony with the beloved as quickly as possible. In general you’re attracted to foreigners, and this month especially so – from the 20th onwards. You’re also attracted to the clergy and mentor types. Love can happen through introductions made by people in your place of worship or at university functions. Your professors are alluring romantically. Mars is still in your house of love, so be careful of power struggles. Avoid them as much as possible.
Health needs more attention this month – especially from the 20th onwards. You respond beautifully to head and face massage this month. Physical exercise is also good. Keep the muscles well-toned.
The love planet in the sign of Taurus slows you down a bit in love – a good thing. You’re less likely to leap into something prematurely. Also it gives more stability.
Finances become more rocky after the 20th. Saturn, your financial planet, is still retrograde and he receives challenging aspects. So, you just have to work harder for earnings than usual.
The spouse, partner or current love has better earning power from the 1st to the 10th and from the 25th onwards – as the Moon waxes. (These are periods of increased libido as well.) The New Moon of the 25th seems an especially good financial day for him or her as it is a ‘Super New Moon’ – the Moon is very near her perigee (her closest point to Earth).

Love is still the main headline this month. You’re still in the midst of a yearly love and social peak until the 21st. Love is very interesting as you seem to go outside your normal sphere in search of it. Perhaps you’re meeting an ‘outsider’ and having a relationship. Mercury is ‘out of bounds’ from the 18th onwards. The love life seems happy.
There is foreign travel and increased earnings from the 2nd to the 5th. Singles have a strong romantic opportunity on the 13th and 14th. Those who are married or in relationships have happy social invitations that period. Their relationship becomes more romantic.
The planetary power begins to shift this month from the lower half to the upper half of your chart – for the first time this year. Day is dawning in your year and it’s time to be up and about and focused on your outer life. Time to take objective, physical actions to further your career. A good work ethic is important until the 6th. Afterwards your social connections play a big role, and a lot of your socializing is career-related. It will be beneficial to attend or host the right parties or gatherings. You’re meeting people socially who can help your career.
Mercury’s ‘out of bounds’ from the 18th onwards affects the career. You’re thinking outside the box, going into unknown territory, in your career path. You’re a bit unconventional now.
Health still needs some attention until the 21st. Make sure to get enough rest – this is always the most important thing. Enhance the health with head, face and scalp massage and regular exercise until the 6th. After the 6th follow our discussion of this in the yearly report. You have good recuperative powers after that date: Venus, your health planet, will be in her own sign and house and thus she is strong on your behalf.
The spouse, partner or current love is having a good financial month. On the 21st he or she enters a yearly financial peak. The New Moon of the 24th is an especially powerful financial day for him or her. Not only is it a ‘Super New Moon’ but it also occurs in his or her money house.

Health and energy are very good now and should improve even further from the 20th onwards. Your health planet moves into your 7th house on the 5th. In the unlikely event that you feel under the weather, arm and shoulder massage will boost your energy. You have a good connection with the healing powers of the Air element from the 5th onwards. Getting out in the fresh air and just breathing deeply will be a nice tonic. If you do develop a health problem, check your love life and restore harmony there as quickly as you can.
Sagittarians are expansive kinds of people. They want to expand, expand, expand. Grow, grow, grow. But since June 21 your 8th house has become very strong, and now it’s all about cutting back – removing waste, removing the things that block expansion. It’s a time to ‘de-clutter’ the life. Expansion will happen later on – after the 22nd – but until then prepare the ground. Go through your possessions and take stock. Are you holding on to things that you don’t use or need? Get rid of them. Do you have too many old bank accounts? Old savings accounts? Too many credit cards? Close down the obsolete and excess. There is a time to breathe out and a time to breathe in. Until the 22nd, you’re in an ‘out breath’ period. Empty the lungs (figuratively speaking) so that the next in-breath will be full and strong.
The 8th house is about dying and being reborn. This need not be taken too literally. In order to give birth to the person we want to be, we must die to the old one (or allow that old person to die). Birth and death are two sides of the same coin. Nothing is born without some kind of death. This is a month where you go deeper into these issues.
On the 22nd (and probably you will feel the effects a bit earlier) the Sun enters your 9th house – Sagittarius’s natural territory. You become a ‘super Sagittarius’ that period. All your natural inclinations are reinforced. There is foreign travel, higher education and religious and philosophical breakthroughs. Much is written of Sagittarius’s love for travel – their love for the ‘jet set’ life. Not so much is written of their love for theology and philosophy. If one did a random survey of the ranks of the clergy, I would wager there would be a disproportionate percentage of Sagittarians there (or people strong in the sign). Underneath every ‘jet setter’ is a budding priest or minister.
Finances are OK as the month begins – nothing special one way or another – but they get really good from the 22nd onwards. Until the 22nd use spare cash to pay off any debts.

Another healthy and happy month. You’re doing the things that you love to do and that you are good at. You’re travelling (or making travel plans), learning and having religious and philosophical insights. Though your financial planet Saturn is still retrograde (he begins moving forward on the 25th) finances are good – though there can be some delays involved.
Health is excellent as we have mentioned. But after the 22nd, you will need to rest and relax more. Diet seems important in health until the 26th. Detox regimes are beneficial too. This is a very good month for losing weight (if you need to).
We have two eclipses this month shaking things up in the world and in your environment, but you seem fairly unaffected. The Solar Eclipse of the 21st affects you more strongly than the Lunar Eclipse of the 7th.
The Lunar Eclipse of the 7th occurs in your 3rd house of communication. This will test cars and communication equipment. Some of it will need repair or replacement. Sibling and sibling figures in your life are experiencing life-changing dramas – perhaps near-death experiences. You could be experiencing encounters with the dark angel too (he is really an angel of light, but we visualize him as dark because we fear him). If you’re having dreams of death – which often happens – understand them for what they are: love messages from above urging you to get on with your true purpose in life. The spouse, partner or current love is forced to make major financial changes by this eclipse. Sometimes there are dramas with insurance companies or to do with taxes. Children and children figures should stay out of harm’s way this period. Speculations are not advisable either.
The Solar Eclipse of the 21st is stronger on you (but mostly for those of you born early in the sign – from November 21 to November 23). This eclipse occurs right on the cusp or border of your 9th and 10th houses and impacts on both of them. So foreign travel should be avoided – try not to be on the road or in the air during the eclipse period. Schedule travel plans around it. College-level students can change institutions or courses, their educational plans have to be changed. There are shakeups in your place of worship, and in your company and industry.
This eclipse seems to open career doors for many of you. Sometimes the cosmos uses dramatic means to manifest its plans. On the 22nd you enter a yearly career peak and much progress will be made.

You’re still in the midst of your yearly career peak and push. Home and family issues will just have to wait right now as you give your attention to the outer life. Your 10th house of career is well-stocked with planets. You have a lot of career support and you need to take advantage of the opportunities happening.
Mars enters the 10th house on the 5th and spends the rest of the month there. This shows a lot of frenetic career activity. There is aggressiveness and conflict. You’re fending off competitors. Good leadership skills are as important as your professional abilities. Venus enters your 10th house on the 20th and this indicates a need for a good work ethic.
Health needs more attention than last month as there are a lot of planets in stressful aspect with you. No doubt but the demands of the career are contributing to the problem. Succeed, by all means, but schedule regular rest breaks. Delegate tasks wherever possible. Enhance the health with chest massage, and generally pay more attention to the heart until the 20th. After the 20th abdominal massage will be powerful.
The love life seems improved over last month. Your love planet (and also your career planet) Mercury moves forward on the 5th. On the 10th he enters your 10th house – his own sign and house. Mercury is thus more powerful on your behalf and this is good for the career and for love. Until the 10th love and social opportunities happen at your place of worship, school or on one of your foreign trips. After the 10th you find love as you pursue your career goals. Strategic skills and courage are important in the career, but so is your social grace. You need both. Sometimes you wield the sword and sometimes you offer the rose. In love, from the 10th onwards, you look to those who can help you career-wise. You’re attracted by power and position. There are romantic opportunities with bosses and with those above you in status. The danger here is getting involved in a relationship of convenience rather than true love.
The Sun leaves your 10th house on the 22nd although the career remains very powerful. The Sun in the 11th house promotes the social life, but not the romantic kind. It’s more about friends and group activities. This has been an important interest all year and after the 22nd even more so. New friends are coming into the picture.

An eventful and happy month ahead. Health is improving day by day. By the 22nd, as Mars leaves his stressful aspect with you, the short-term planets will either be in harmony with you or leaving you alone. Your health planet is still in Virgo, your 10th house, until the 14th. Abdominal massage will remain powerful (there are reflexes there to the intestines – a more vulnerable area during this period). On the 14th Venus will move into Libra, your 11th house. Health is now enhanced through paying more attention to the kidneys and hips. Hip and buttock massage will be a good tonic this period. Your health planet in the 11th house makes you more experimental in health matters – more open to new and untried therapies.
Your 11th house of friends has been powerful all year, and it is the major headline of the month ahead. It is a social house but not generally romantic. It deals with Platonic friendships – friendships of the mind, friendships of people with similar interests. Yet, because your love planet is here until the 17th, these shared interests can lead to romance as well. Singles should get more involved in groups and group activities. Friends can make romantic introductions. Someone you considered merely a friend can become more than that.
This power in the 11th house will bring you more scientific and astrological knowledge. I’ve seen many cases where people who had never been interested in astrology had their charts done when their 11th house became strong. It is a great period also for honing and expanding your knowledge of technology. It is good for buying high-tech equipment (your judgement will be good) and for online activities.
The other major headline – and it is important too – is Jupiter’s move from the 11th house to the spiritual 12th house, which takes place on the 11th. The ruler of your Horoscope – Jupiter – has equal importance to the Sun and the Moon. He is one of the most important planets in your chart. This transit indicates a major shift for you personally. You enter a very spiritual period in your life which will go on well into next year. If you are not yet on some kind of spiritual path, you will enter one in the year ahead. If you are on a path you will see a lot of progress – a lot of growth and development.
On the 17th your love planet moves into your 12th house, and on the 23rd the Sun joins him. The month ahead is a spiritual kind of month, good for the study of sacred literature, spiritual practice, meditation and charitable activities. Get the spiritual life right and love, career and personal issues will fall into place.

In September the planetary power shifted from the social West to the independent East. Day by day, personal power and independence is growing. This month (and next) the planetary power is moving in its maximum Eastern position with at least 70 per cent (and often 80 per cent) of the planets in the East. The planetary power moves towards you – it supports you and your personal goals. You have the power to create the conditions of your happiness. To have life your way and on your terms. Your love planet Mercury is also in the East (on the 6th it moves into your sign), thus others will support your actions. The cosmos wants you to be happy. Take the steps that are needed to achieve this.
Health and energy are good this month. If you would like to enhance the health further pay more attention to the kidneys and hips (until the 7th) and to the colon, bladder and sexual organs afterwards. Abdominal massage will also help the colon. Spiritual healing becomes a strong interest this month (from the 7th onwards). You respond well to it. In the unlikely event that you feel under the weather, see a spiritual healer.
Job seekers have a beautiful opportunity on the 12th and 13th. Likewise those who hire others.
Like last month, love can be found in spiritual settings, until the 6th. You will find it at the meditation seminar, the charity event or the prayer meeting – as you pursue your spiritual interests and perhaps with people involved in your spiritual life. Your career also benefits from your spiritual interests and practice.
On the 6th your love planet crosses your Ascendant and enters your 1st house. Love pursues you. You won’t escape it. If you are in a relationship already, the beloved is doting on you – he or she is very devoted. You’re having your way in love. You do seem to be meeting people who are outside your normal circle. Mercury is ‘out of bounds’ from the 11th onwards. Your career will also pull you outside your normal sphere.
Mercury’s move into your sign brings happy career opportunities. It brings the favour of bosses, elders and authority figures in your life. They are devoted to you.
The Sun’s move into your sign on the 22nd brings happy travel and educational opportunities, and you’ll probably take them. Any excuse to travel – even the flimsiest – is enough to start you packing.
Children and children figures are having an active social life these days. They seem very popular.

A happy and prosperous month ahead, Sagittarius. Enjoy!
When the Sun entered your 1st house last month (on the 22nd) you began one of your yearly personal pleasure periods. And, this continues until the 21st. You’re living the good life now – travelling, enjoying sensual pleasures, eating good foods and drinking good wines. Health is good too and it shows in your personal appearance. Energy is more important in personal appearance than physical form. It is definitely more important than hosts of lotions and potions. A homely person looks beautiful if the cosmic energy is flowing properly. One forgets about the form and sees only the radiance. So, you’re more magnetic and attractive this period. Yet, in spite of this, love is more complicated. The beloved is devoted to you to be sure, and singles are attracting happy romantic opportunities. It is Mercury’s retrograde motion that is the issue. Your love planet moves backwards from the 3rd to the 23rd. Love seems to go backwards instead of forwards. There are delays and glitches in the love life. This passes by the 23rd; love will be much happier after that.
There is another factor that helps the personal appearance and the overall demeanour. Saturn is moving out of your sign on the 21st. He has been there for more than two years. While many of you lost weight and got your body in shape, it gave you a cold (and often forbidding) demeanour. Now you can be your natural sunny Sagittarius self, bubbly and full of fun. Saturn’s move out of your sign will do much for the love life too. You should see big improvements (you’ll see it more next year).
The month ahead will be prosperous too. Saturn’s move into the money house (this coincides with the Sun’s move there) will bring a more stable and conservative financial judgement. You’re be less speculative and more rational about finances. You will take a long-term perspective on wealth. Also, the ego will be less involved and this will improve your judgement. From the 21st onwards you will be in a yearly financial peak.
The planetary power is now below the horizon of your chart. You have achieved your short-term career goals (and people see you as successful now) and it’s time to focus more on the home, family and your emotional well-being. It’s time now to build up the forces for your next career push in the coming year.
