Sagittarius (22 November – 21 December)
There’s no point beating around the bush this month. One date stands out for all the right reasons and that date is the 9th. This is a double whammy of astrology joy that picks you out of the pack as the one to notice.
Firstly, this is the date of your annual Full Moon, i.e. the Full Moon takes place in your sign of Sagittarius. Full Moons represent celebration, culmination and they are often a time of achievement. You see your situation clearly during the Full Moon and as your sign is something of a hedonist, at the very least line up a party or big social event.
Plus on the same date, your ruling planet Jupiter turns direct after four months retrograde or on go slow. This is a whoosh of positive Jupiter energy and feels lucky for you. Jupiter represents opportunity and good fortune, freedom and expansion and it’s 100% in line with your visionary and risk-taking nature.
Also Jupiter is currently in Libra and the part of your chart that represents your hopes and wishes. So make the most of this positive vibe and plan something special for the 9th. Look out too for a person or situation that adds the luck factor to your own life.
Yet it’s not all about you this month as the people sectors of your chart are red hot. So don’t go it alone but team up with other people who complement your set of skills. It doesn’t really matter whether you want to get ahead personally, professionally or both. It’s simply a top month to make key connections that can benefit your life in more ways than one.
Libra rules your friendships and group activities so togetherness is a buzz word moving forward. In fact, one group or association could play an important role in your life over the next four months. Be around people who inspire you and encourage you to play big in life.
This month there’s also strong emphasis on your opposite sign of Gemini. Gemini rules your close relationships, both personal and professional, and your key 1-to-1’s. The Sun is in Gemini until the 21st and sometimes you find that other people have the upper hand when the Sun opposes your sign.
The Sun represents vitality so be wary of any relationship that saps your energy and don’t give more than you receive in return.
The other key planet in Gemini is communication planet Mercury which is strong here from the 6th to the 21st. This is why you’ll benefit greatly from negotiations now, so plan an interview or meeting that can help you get ahead. The 3rd and 13th are top dates for expanding your connections and making an impact.
Saturn is in action this month too and Saturn is currently in your sign of Sagittarius. On the 15th and 18th, Saturn opposes first the Sun and then Mercury in Gemini. So you either can’t get everything your own way when it comes to love and relationships during this period or you’re the one who’s saying No.
In fact, you might decide to put new boundaries in place especially if your love life is lively to say the least. Don’t forget that love planet Venus has been in the part of your chart that rules love affairs for the majority of 2017 and it’s only on the 6th of this month that Venus moves on.
Before it does so, Venus teams up with Saturn in your sign on the 1st and unpredictable Uranus on the 3rd. So anything goes on the love front and you might discover that you’re in the thick of a swiftly-changing romantic scenario. Perhaps this is why you recognise you have to issue an ultimatum or slow things down mid-June.
Having said all of that, this is an exciting month for love and relationships. Plus your ruling planet Jupiter is strong so if you want one person in particular or you want something special to happen, there won’t be a lot stopping you going all out to get your needs met and your wishes fulfilled.
Money too is under the cosmic spotlight this month, especially once action planet Mars enters Cancer and your joint finance sector on the 4th. Mars rules drive and determination and this is an ambitious placing for Mars.
So fight for what’s rightfully yours or take an active role in your finances. This is worth doing because there’s more positive financial activity later in the month. On the day of the Solstice, the 21st, the Sun also enters Cancer and is immediately joined by communication planet Mercury.
In fact, these two planets unite in Cancer on the 21st so you might be discussing finances on this date. Perhaps an inheritance or investment, linked to property matters or your family.
In addition, there’s a New Moon in Cancer on the 24th, a symbol of new beginnings so there’s a lot going on in this part of your chart. Make the most of it especially if you have some key negotiations to handle.
Finally this month, the planet of relating Venus is the most steady influence in your chart in the sign of Taurus from the 6th. This means that it’s time to enjoy simple pleasures and take the pace slow. Prioritise your health and well-being and do what’s good for you.
It would be a good month to join a regular exercise class or to get advice about your health moving forward. Venus rules women so look out for someone who can help guide you and give you good advice.
Work matters too flourish when Venus is in Taurus, as long as whatever you do is enjoyable rather than stressful. Take life at a slow, leisurely pace and don’t rush if you don’t have to.
