Sagittarius – November 22-December 21
Your sign is ruled by Jupiter, considered to be the good guy in astrology because it’s all about expansion, luck, serendipity. In actuality, no planet is bad, but some astrological energies – like Jupiter and Venus – are easier to deal with than say, Saturn. Yet, each planet has a necessary function. Where would we be without the structures that Saturn builds?
This year, Jupiter is in your sign until December 2. Its transit through Sagittarius began in November 2018 and between then and when it enters Capricorn, it has been and will continue to expand your life in some way. A new job, new career path, a spike in income, a new love, marriage, birth, international travel. You may be sampling various spiritual traditions, could teach workshops or seminars, or even go to graduate or law school. Pay close attention to the angles transiting planets make to Jupiter. It will be retrograde from April 10 to August 11.
The monthly roundups also include information on the transits, new and full moons, eclipses, and retrogrades.
On December 31, Mars entered Aries and for the next six weeks, until February 14, it travels through the creativity and romance area of your chart. Your passions are stoked, your drive and ambition are powerful, and you’re able to accomplish quite a bit. With Mars in your court, you embrace the new year whole-heartedly.
Mercury enters Capricorn and your financial area on January 4 and between then and January 24, you’re driven to earn, earn, earn. Your ability to strategize is heightened. If you’re saving up for something special – an overseas trip? – you’re able to set aside a percentage of your income to cover your expenses. Your intellect is particularly goal-oriented during this transit.
Between January 24 and February 10, Mercury transits compatible air sign Aquarius and the communication area of your chart. Your mind is sharp and the ideas you have during this period are unusual. Keep track of them. They may come in handy later on. In your daily life, you engage with interesting people who are attracted by your ability to talk to anyone about virtually anything.
The solar eclipse in Capricorn on January 5 will be followed two weeks later, on January 21, by a lunar eclipse in Leo. The first eclipse concerns external events and may bring a new financial or career opportunity. With Pluto conjunct the eclipse degree and Neptune friendly to it, the opportunity appeals to your idealism and spiritual values.
The lunar eclipse in Leo may make you feel as if your creativity and freedom are eclipsed in some way, perhaps due to a criticism made by a boss or someone in your personal environment. But Mars in Aries and Jupiter in your sign are closely aligned during this eclipse and it looks as if things shake out fine for you.
