Sagittarius 22 Nov - 21 Dec
YOUR YEAR AHEAD 2013
With Jupiter, your planetary ruler, in your opposite
sign of Gemini until June, there is a strong emphasis
on relationships in the first half of 2013. Since Gemini
is opposite Sagittarius, your Sun sign, then you may find
it is you who has to go out of your way for others, that others
call the shots in some way. Therefore, if there is someone with whom
you would like to get more deeply involved, emotionally, romantically or professionally, this isn't the time to sit and wait for the world to come to you. You need to be prepared to make the first move, to set things in motion. Of course, you also have to be prepared to compromise and cooperate with others, to let others call the shots more than you might usually prefer.
You are not usually one to dance to another's tune but for the first half of 2013 at least, things should work out better if you do so. From the end of June, Jupiter moves into Cancer, a sign in which it is exalted and thereby very comfortable. Cancer is associated with home and family matters and Jupiter's placement in Cancer should be good for this. Cancer is a water sign and so there may be times when you feel more sentimental and emotional. Don't bottle it up, be prepared to wear your heart on your sleeve and don't be afraid of getting emotional or shedding the occasional tear, or bucket load, in 2013. Cancer is also one of the money zones of your solar chart, and is particularly concerned with the resources of others and your financial commitments, loans, debts, credit cards, etc.
Jupiter will be in harmony with both Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces, forming a triangular configuration in the second half of 2013. This is generally considered a favourable alignment although it is possible to have too much of a good things and Jupiter, your planetary ruler, is the planet of excess after all. Nevertheless, mystical, creative and emotional matters are well-starred and you may find it relatively easy to get hold of the help and support you need form others to achieve your goals. However, don't bite off more than you can chew or make promises or commitments you can't keep.
Both the North Node of the Moon, also known as the Dragon's Head, and sober Saturn, will spend 2013 in Scorpio, one of the most complex areas of your solar chart. Saturn will be in Scorpio until 2015 when it moves into Sagittarius, your Sun sign, heralding a major new cycle, but that is a still a way off. Saturn's presence in Scorpio is in some way preparation for that and is a time for you to work on yourself and those aspects of yourself that may prevent you from fulfilling your potential. It is also a time to exercise any ghosts or aspects from your past that may be preventing you from getting on with your life.
The North Node of the Moon in Scorpio is favourable for taking time out from the world, to escape, retreat or go on a physical, spiritual or creative adventure with little to guide except your intuition and the invisible hand of fate. The South Node of the Moon, known as the Dragon's Tail, is always opposite the North Node and will be in Taurus throughout 2013. For those living in the West, it is advisable to follow the path dictated by the North Node, to go in the direction of the North Node and to move away from, or release ourselves from the direction indicated by the South Node.
The South Node will be in Taurus in 2013, an earth sign, essentially concerned with what is tangible and material, with money, possessions and all that appeals to the physical senses. Taurus is also the area of your solar chart that is associated with your day-to-day chores and routine work that keeps you tied into the world and its cycles and rhythms. Therefore, with the South Node here in 2013, it is time to step back from the mundane, material world, away from money and material preoccupations and sensual distractions and step boldly into the world of dreams and imagination. 2013 is the year to go on a magical, mystical, mystery tour, beyond the boundaries of the world in which you have become accustomed, and into the unknown.
