Sagittarius 22 Nov - 21 Dec
YOUR YEAR AHEAD 2014
Jupiter, your planetary ruler, will be in Cancer
until July after which Jupiter enters Leo where it
will remain until August 2015. Since Cancer is one of
the money zones of your solar chart this suggests that
you may benefit through the help, resources and finances of
others in some way. With Pluto in Capricorn, the other money zone
of your solar chart, this could also represent long-term changes in your financial affairs. Money matters are only likely to be complicated if you try
to live beyond your means, if you over-extend yourself, get yourself into
debt or make promises you can’t keep. Positively, you may be able to get
your hands on the resources you need to get things done and to go where you want to go. Additional finances or help that comes your way should not be wasted and neither should you put yourself in a situation where others have too much influence or control, especially financial control, over you. Nevertheless, this is a generally favorable time for pooling your resources with those of others and then getting assistance and support from others. Changes in the financial situation of those around you could also affect you and so if you’re getting involved with people on a more intimate or personal level, try not to be too focused on the financial aspects or implications of the relationship.
Cancer, along with Scorpio is one of the most complex areas of your solar chart and Jupiter’s presence there suggests there may be times when you feel very powerful emotions. This could represent an intense and even complicated time for you emotionally while at the same time, you may be going through some kind of emotional renewal, renaissance or even a psychological rebirth. If you want to make some important changes in your life then now would be a time to set the wheels in motion and do so. With Jupiter in Leo from July this bodes well for you since Leo, like Aries and Sagittarius, your Sun sign, is a fire sign. There are three fire signs in the Zodiac, and all three are in harmonious alignment with one another. With Jupiter in Leo you should feel increased confidence, optimism and strength and you can create your own luck and good fortune by the way you approach people and deal with situations. Since Leo is the area of your solar chart associated with foreign places and people, education, spirituality, metaphysics and philosophical pursuits, this would be a great time to embark on an adventure or journey. Whether that is a physical journey or a mental one, make the most of opportunities to explore the world through education, travel and cultural activities and meet new people from exotic places. Jupiter’s presence in Leo is generally favorable for all Sagittarians, however, those born around the middle of December may be in for an auspicious end of 2014. Whilst in Cancer until July, Jupiter will be in harmony with Saturn in Scorpio and this reinforces the importance of developing sensible work and commercial practices in the first half of 2014.
Saturn will be in Scorpio, one of the most complex areas of your solar chart, until December when Saturn enters Sagittarius, your Sun sign. Saturn’s move into Sagittarius at the end of 2014 is a major astrological event for Sagittarians. Saturn takes about 29 ½ years to travel all the way through the Zodiac and spends approximately 2 ½ years in each Sun sign. Saturn, when in your Sun sign, is concerned with managing, dealing with and establishing yourself in the real world. Therefore, the beginning of a major new life cycle or chapter for you is not far away. Saturn has been in Scorpio since Autumn 2012. Saturn’s presence in Scorpio may have corresponded with a closing of one chapter in your life in readiness for a new one soon to begin, a transition phase, the bridging phase. The 12th zone of our solar chart is the area where we can be our own worst enemies, stand in our own way and can signify unconscious behaviors and habits and repressed drives and impulses bubbling away in our unconscious. Saturn is the hard taskmaster of the Zodiac, and so whilst in Scorpio, You may have beeen required to do some deep inner work on yourself, to confront those aspects of your life, behavior and attitudes that may have been holding you back, preventing you from realizing your potential.
With Saturn in Scorpio 2014 is an excellent time to work on yourself, honestly and seriously. It can be a time of exorcising ghosts from your past and overcoming self-defeating behaviors but also a time to clear the decks psychologically, emotionally and karmically. This is reinforcing the message of Jupiter in Cancer in the first half of 2014. That is not to say you need to go into therapy, not at all. Nevertheless, you should find that you will benefit tremendously from doing inner work on yourself in readiness for your major new cycle that gets underway when Saturn enters Sagittarius, your Sun sign, at the end of 2014. As mentioned above, there are three fire signs; Aries, Leo and Sagittarius, all three of which are in harmonious alignment with one another.
The planet Uranus is currently in Aries where it will remain for several years to come. As Uranus slowly makes its way through Aries it aspects Leo and Sagittarius, your Sun sign. Uranus is associated with change and upheaval that can bring about an awakening or liberation. The kind of change that Uranus frequently ushers in is often sudden, dramatic and unexpected. Since Uranus is in harmonious alignment with Sagittarius this suggests that Sagittarians are more likely to experience the more favorable qualities of Uranus, although of course this will depend on your very individual and personal situation. Uranus moves slowly and so while it represents a background influence generally, it will be particularly strong for those Sagittarians born between the end of November and the first week of December.
When Jupiter, your planetary ruler, enters Leo from July the combination of your Sun sign, Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries will represent a very harmonious triangular configuration which bodes well for opportunity, good fortune and a chance to make major life changes for the better, particularly in the second half of 2014 and well into 2015. You may find some of your talents and abilities come to the fore, you may be more in the spotlight in some way and you may get a chance to lead others, to shine and show the world what you can do. 2014 looks better for Sagittarius than for most Sun signs. However, there is one complex planetary influence you may need to deal with next year and that is the nebulous, elusive and otherworldly influence associated with Neptune, which is in Pisces, the domestic area of your solar chart.
Neptune moves very slowly and so its influence will be felt most strongly by those born at the end of November. With Neptune in Pisces there may be times when you feel your domestic situation lacks certainty, predictability, solidity and consistency. Of all the planetary influences Neptune is usually the most subtle, confusing, least tangible and so occasionally the source of fantasy, illusion and even delusion. Subsequently, there may be times over the next twelve months when your home, living situation, domestic affairs and private life could be a source of uncertainty, insecurity and confusion. Positively, this can be a time to try to develop your ideal living environment, to establish a place or living space that lives up to your ideals. While this may involve establishing your dream home, finding your community or seeking the perfect living environment, it can be a time of uncertainty in your private life. It’s important now to make sure that lines of communication with family and loved ones are kept open and any misunderstandings or confusions are dealt with and resolved as soon as possible. It might also be advisable to establish a living situation that is adaptable, flexible and fluid. You may be able to develop your ideal living environments during this period but it’s important for you to be open-minded about your home, family and domestic affairs. Neptune can also have a sensitizing influence. Negatively, this can leave one feeling disorientated, confused and even lost, as if groping around in the dark for an elusive sense of self and so the consumption of alcohol and drugs should be kept to a minimum. Positively, Neptune can bring inspiration, increased imagination, sensitivity and awareness of the unseen and immaterial aspects of life. Therefore, it’s important to be open-minded, to express yourself creatively and to be prepared to explore alternative realitys, ideas and philosophical beliefs and not to take anything or anyone for granted or at face value.
There are number of stressful astrological configurations in the sky in 2014. However, these appear to impact most strongly on the Cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. Of course, we are only talking about your Sun sign here and your horoscope contains more than just your Sun sign. Nevertheless, Sagittarius may well experience more favorable astrological weather than most Sun signs in 2014. The presence of Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn and eclipse activity in the spring and autumn across the Aries Libra axis may still have some affect on your life next year.
The Nodes of the Moon, the North Node and the South Node, are always opposite each other. The nodes take approximately 18 ½ years to travel around the Zodiac, spending about 18 months in each Sun sign. The presence of the North Node of the Moon in Libra and the South Node of the Moon in Aries from February can act like a pair of signposts, one pointing the way forward, to an area of greater personal development and fulfillment in your life, signified by the North Node. The other, the place to move away from, to let go, avoid or release is signified by the South Node. With the North Node of the Moon traveling through Libra, the area of your solar chart associated with groups, friendships and your social circle generally, while the South Node travels through Aries, the area associated with more selfish and self-indulgent pursuits, the message of the Nodes is to develop group-orientated activities, interests and goals and those relationships, associations and kindred spirits who support and encourage your goals and aspirations. Consequently you may find you achieve more by becoming a member of a team or group than you would by going solo in 2014.
