Welcome to 2018 Sagittarius
It's a New Year, Sagittarius and with it comes amazing opportunities.
At the same time, additional responsibilities, especially of a financial nature must be expected. Over the past two and one-half years you’ve been somewhat constricted in yourself as a result of Saturn transiting your Sun sign. This is meant you had to make adjustments not only in the way you relate to others but primarily in terms of the way you relate to yourself. This has been a transitional period and now Saturn is transiting Sagittarius which means you should be in better shape to take charge and steer your life in the direction you’ve always wanted to.
Last year, Saturn moved out of this area into your Sun sign bringing with it far greater responsibilities and a new focus that you may not have had before. This doesn’t necessarily take the pressure off but with consistency, determination and hard work you can make the next twelve months an important turning point in your life. You must remove any sluggishness, lethargy and lack of enthusiasm as you may be a tired physically and mentally. But your challenge now has a great deal to do with how you manage your personal energies, your relationships and interactions with others generally.
As the year commences, Saturn, Venus, the Sun and transformative Pluto combine to bring powerful forces to bear upon this part of your horoscope. Saying that this impacts your life is somewhat a simplistic view of what these four planets, will do now. In fact, the second house of your horoscope is ruled by Saturn and has a lot to do with the way you value things generally. So this is not only about money. Resources generally will be viewed much more differently and if in the past you've been wasteful, now, valuing the time and effort you put into making money, you’ll start to see a direct link between these two facets of your life.
Being frugal with money is only the tip of the iceberg as you will start to learn that thriftiness and a minimalist approach to speech, time, generosity etc will be a key to opening you up to greater possibilities within yourself and making use of your resources in a much more productive and appreciative way.
In short, all of these aspects are going to have a telling effect on your overall self-esteem.
Mercury, your career planet is well poised transiting your ascendant early in the first week of the year. This indicates a strong drive to achieve new heights in your profession in 2018 by using your ideas - the written and spoken word to your best advantage. An excellent trine aspect from the North Node as the year starts shows you’re willing to open yourself up to new forms of learning, to developing your skill sets and generally broadening your horizons in life.
August is not only a perfect time for friendship, but cementing your relationships and making an extra effort to show your appreciation for those around you. There’s a strong tie-in with money and social activities as Saturn continues to transit your second house of Finance with Venus, ruler of your social life, and in hard aspect to Uranus in your 5th house of speculation. You can love your friends, but not all of their financial advice will pay off. You’ll find yourself in a more popular position throughout August and early September and this reflects the powerful aspect of Venus on Mars as well as your sense of appreciation for your most important relationships. This will also naturally spark greater affection for your family as well.
You must work steadily throughout the year and if you do so you'll start to see exceptional results between July and October. When Venus transits your 10th house on July 10, the Sun on August 23 and then Mercury on September 6, the increasing power and influence of these planets provides you a perfect professional environment to make your presence felt within your industry and to elevate yourself to a new position possibly even gaining some new work or coveted position.
The planet ruling your working environment and day-to-day activities is Venus.
As it’s placed in your finance sector early in the year, you may still be working through some outstanding debts or agreements that were made with co-workers previously.
You may be a little hamstrung for a while in terms of independently breaking free of these commitments.
Planets moving through your sixth house indicate changes in your work and we can see that Venus does indeed make a quick transition to this area after March 31 with the Sun following suit on April 20, Mercury on May 13 and then whammo! This is a really important transit of Uranus into the same place. If life had been dreary or uneventful up until this time, expect Uranus to shake things up and bring deliver an enlightening and electric sort of energy which will definitely bring a whole new burst of energy into your workplace. This is also a rather sudden and unexpected influence so plan your work and life more effectively and don’t leave too much to chance. This transit could be actually described as the "expect the unexpected" effect.
Relationships are also ruled by Mercury but on a more romantic level especially for those who are single.
Mars has a strong bearing on your love life. As Mars and Jupiter start the year together in your 12th house, which happens to be the house of secrets, you may be quietly working yourself into a New Year's resolution that’s specifically centered on gaining a better status quo for yourself emotionally. In the past, you've been too effusive, generous and lacking in self-interest.
This year you will want a more equitable arrangement in all manner of relationships.
For Sagittarians who are married, love and romance are amplified by the activation of the fifth house with Mercury entering this area on March 6, Venus on March 21 and fast-paced Uranus on November 7 to finish the year with a bang!
Mars makes you more forceful and demanding in your negotiations, especially when it moves into your third house of communication. On May 16, and again on September 11, friends may find you overbearing. If this is what is needed to get a fairer deal in life, so be it! Mars' transit into your fourth house on November 16, results in a few end of year dramas domestically.
You need to keep a cool mind and play peacemaker in the last couple of months of the year.
With the movement of Jupiter into one of the luckiest areas of your horoscope on November 8, it reflects wonderful and positive vibrations all around. Again for romantic matters, social activities and spiritual wellbeing it’s a superb transit. Of course, this is where it all starts – generating good feelings, love and happiness are what attract others into your life. This is the start of a new cycle, the first in 12 years which promises to be an uplifting time for you.
What's happening in your love life, marriage and social arena?
Love planet Venus is family orientated this year and therefore there’s a strong bond and kinship to relatives – to both your own and those of your partner or lover. The early sextile aspect to your ruler stimulates your desire to be closer to your loved ones and to rekindle domestic instincts.
Venus is also concerned with happiness and inner peace which is expressed when it transits through your fourth house on February 11.
By being peaceful in yourself and maintaining equilibrium on the home front, you’ll be in a better position to enjoy more personal intimate relationships with others without having the burden of problems domestically.
When Venus makes a testy square with Jupiter on February 4, keep your antenna up for perfect opportunities for love but don’t be excessive. Karmic liaisonsare likely to arise at this time so don’t sidestep opportunities to develop friendships, but with caution.
Some of the key dates and periods when Mercury, your marital planet, accentuates your love life are in late February and early March and it’s at this time that brilliant aspects are formed between Venus, Neptune and Pluto showing that your emotional affairs may be dreamy, idealistic and perhaps not altogether grounded in the reality of the situation. But you might also be pleased to note that around this time it’s perfect for forming new alliances and finding that ideal love if you are currently single.
The Sun is also fortunate when it makes contact with Mercury and it does so on February 17 in your zone of communications. This has already been discussed as an important feature of your romantic life in terms of getting things back on track if your love life’ s been slipping and sliding around of late.
The retrograde movements of Mercury between March 23rd to April 15, July 26 until August 19 and then again between November 17 and December 7 indicate powerful periods of change and especially in your marital affairs. As the year starts, an almost full Moon in your seventh house of marriage along with Mercury in your rising sign points to the fact that your personal relationships will be an important feature of the coming 12 months.
And so during these particular cycles, you will be forced to review and recalibrate your attitudes in the relationship. This will mean a much-needed change in yourself - as much as may be required of your partner.
The important thing to note is that you must be aware and unbiased enough to realise that it takes two to tango.
This sort of awareness creates amazing breakthroughs if you’re open enough to make appropriate changes, even radical ones.
On April 2 and the time leading up to it, result in an important and key period when the Sun and Mercury associate in your fifth house of love affairs. New opportunities arise and this follows closely on the heels of the love planet Venus transiting this same place on March 7. Mercury makes a conjunction with Venus on March 20 in that very same spot setting the trend for some exciting relationships. Later in the year, this same conjunction in your Sun sign of Sagittarius is notable as it brings together lucky forces which impact your marital life and relationships in a very positive way.
Of course, marriage and relationships must incorporate the element of friendship and as already indicated, around March 5 and 20, August 19, September 3, October 16 and again on October 27 Mercury and the Sun makes favourable contacts with Venus and assure you of excellent rapport with lovers as well as friends and family members. You should note these times as being favourable for socialising, deepening your communication and also extending your affection and demonstrativeness in a reciprocal manner.
From August 16, great things happen in your social life and this period is likely to be full of great opportunities to expand your social circle and enjoy excellent romantic interludes. You must be careful not to overdo it, however, as the period of the September 9 to October 11 could result in a depletion of your physical energies and this may require you to take time out.
Too much of a good thing is bad for you, Sagittarius! Sudden and unexpected relationships after around this same period of October 11 catch you off guard. Excitement, someone who is completely offbeat but also fun in the circumstance you would least expect for example your working arena may cause you to take a gamble on love.
Tread carefully as you explore where it may lead you.
Time away from your usual routine with the person you love is indicated after December 3. Enjoy some quiet time with that most special person in your life. On 11th September, 23rd September, 5th November and 16th November key dates and planetary highlights occur which solidify relationship prospects.
With Jupiter finally moving to your Sun sign on November 8, this powerhouse of energy will manifest itself both in terms of your sense of confidence in your own self but also in the relationships that you have chosen to align yourself with. Furthermore, intensity, passion and deep communications are all part of the final Venus and Pluto sextile aspect which occurs on December 29.
Is it going to be a successful year for you Sagittarius?
Saturn's transit to your second house into its own sign of Capricorn late in 2017, continues to be a very sobering, economic influence on the lives of those born under Sagittarius. For some, it may be a little scary. It means paring back and cutting down on excess. In short, trimming the fat seems to be the key focus of Saturn transiting this area of your horoscope.
With so many planets transiting this very same area at the outset of 2018, you no doubt have many ideas about how you wish to earn more money. But you must be careful, especially with Venus, ruler of your sixth house of debt transiting your finance sector. No sooner do you earn the cash and you find yourself spending it. That is also shown by the very powerful conjunction of Mars and Jupiter in your 12th house.
As Jupiter is your ruling planet in the house of expense and generosity, it amplifies you already warmhearted and open nature. If you're not careful you'll find it very hard to save money throughout the coming period.
Set yourself a budget if you must to avoid working the year without showing too much for your efforts.
As Mercury rules your professional activities, some of the exact same dates for the retrogression of Mercury that have been applied to your marital and relationship events will also be found to impact upon your work as well. Just going through those dates again:
March 23 to April 15, July 26 to August 19 and November 17 to December 7.
To extrapolate a little more on this, the retrogression of Mercury is well-known in the day-to-day lingo even to non-practicing astrologers but what does it actually mean? Usually, we’re told that this transit makes it difficult to get a handle on the facts, figures and the information and that there are delays and revisions necessary. To some extent that is true, but Mercury doesn't always only impact you on the outer level of expression. This may have as much to do with rethinking your professional decisions and objectives for 2018. You may have made decisions that you now feel are not appropriate for where you are and where you wish to be.
If you’re concerned about how others perceive you, this will be more difficult transition through these periods because rather than making a decision that is in your best interests, you'll be drawing your conclusions simply to satisfy others. It's time you looked at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself: "what is it that I really want to do and what's going to make me deeply happy?” These are the sorts of questions, which may have more to do with self-reflection rather than contractual arrangements. These are more important questions to ask because even if you get the contracts right, you may still be miserable in a job that doesn't fulfil you creatively or spiritually, even though you may be earning a reasonable salary.
Venus reveals a few problems in terms of your day-to-day activities at work. There’ll be some intense activities and that can happen around January 9 when Venus makes a conjunction with intense and manipulative Pluto. Things can improve by February 27 one. This aspect is more favourable. The sextile affords you the opportunity to resolve issues with others. Trouble in your work is likely with the square of Saturn around March 13 and then again on May 26 when Venus makes an opposition aspect to Saturn but shortly after on June 2, Venus and Jupiter produce a wonderful trine aspect on the same day.
The trine to Neptune can help you realise some of your ideals and especially if you're working in tandem with others. This is a really good collaborative. And speaking of collaboration, when Venus moves your 11th house on August 7, you may be able to work with larger groups of people and can even make an impact on others with some of your ideas.
This is also good for balancing out your debts and making good on your resolution to start saving and budgeting more.
The powerful solar eclipse on February 16 in your third house and then again on July 13 in your eighth house has powerful implications for those of you who have spiritual interests. Sun is ruling your ninth house of spirituality and higher mind and its connection with the third house brings deeper insights into the way you think and make decisions.
The eclipse later in the year on August 11 in your eighth house, has a great deal to say about freeing yourself from any psychological complexes that may have been bothering you for some years. This is also a sexual house so finding a balance between your spiritual and sexual or lower nature, will require a great deal of attention, especially if you've been conflicted over these matters for some time.
The Sun also offers you considerable good luck ruling this ninth house and in particular when it makes contact with your second house as it does at the outset of the year. You should try to capitalise on this materially. Good fortune in your property and real estate matters are shown in February and also in November when the Sun and Mars activate this part of your horoscope respectively.
On May 21, the Sun moves to your seventh house of marriage and relationships on the heels of Venus which transits this same area on April 25.Make your best efforts to cement your relationships and if you aren't yet married, you could look forward to this period as being one when beautiful things can happen.
Travels, foreign connections and the spiritual experiences all occur under the auspices of the transit of the Sun into the ninth house after July 23. Pilgrimages can also be included in these forms of travel during these transits.
Finally, an important transit of Jupiter from the difficult and expensive 12th house to your Sun sign is another key transit during 2018, if not one of the most important, as it is your ruling planet and moves into your Sun sign. That happens at the end of the year on November 8 but rest assured that its work in your 12th house has done much to pave the way for an incredible new opening at the tail end of 2018.
