Sagittarius Horoscope (November 22 - December 21)
Your ruling planet is Jupiter.
This is a deeply paradoxical month for you, Sagittarius. You have on the one hand a huge opening to better connection with yourself and with others, and the unleashing of all your natural creativity; while on the other something seems to be holding you back from too exuberant a display of personal fireworks. All this is complicated by the Mercury retrograde period that lasts virtually all month long, and which enjoins you to follow up and finish existing projects before launching yourself into new ones, no matter how keen the impulse. You do best to wait until perhaps mid-May to set out upon any brand new endeavors. Your unique individuality is sizzling right now, even so! Holding back can also be ultimately creative, concentrating your energies so that when you do finally release them it will prove to be even more amazing.
As the month begins, you are really feeling your oats and are ready to be off to the races but there are competing forces within your awareness that also seem to be holding you back. This is because your ruler Jupiter in your identity sector is getting a huge boost from Mars and Uranus but is also directly opposed by restriction and limitation as represented by the planet Saturn. You must be aware also that the outcome of any endeavors that are newly begun in this timeframe still remains uncertain, since all month long Mercury is retrograding through this same sector of your chart. Of course you are likely to be subjected to the usual missed connections and communication breakdowns just to punctuate the point! There is a strong will present within you now to succeed in spite of everything, but it not an easy journey from where you are now to where you desire to be in your heart of hearts. The New Moon of Sunday, April 3rd, comes along during the first weekend of the month, raising the stakes and entirely amping up the energy. You are experiencing now a powerful sense of commitment to an emerging future plan, however difficult that might prove. You are also in the midst of the Mercury retrograde energy, so that you cannot know what the eventual outcome might eventually be. This is a good time for research, for journaling and for getting clearer on your priorities, not such a good time to push the river. The First Quarter Moon of Monday, April 11th, is a time of relative difficulty in your process when you might be forced to take a stand for yourself in some way. This is a time of trial by fire, when whatever it is that you think you are up to could be testing by events and circumstances. You might find that you have to flexible to get the most out of this particular monthly cycle. With the Full Moon of Sunday evening, April 17th, you are reaching out for a point of balance. The mystical side of life comes more readily into your thinking at this time, which could be of help in sorting things out. Of course, with Mercury still retrograde, not leaving its retrograde shadow until well after the end of the month, a certain degree of uncertainty pervades your thought process. Then, too, with Neptune newly entered into your sector of home and family, there is potentially confusion and illusion reigning in this area of your life. There might be painful places inside you as well, that are only now coming to light, places where you can makes gains by confronting them and accepting yourself in all your parts. Your psychological security is vitally important for your continued well being, giving you a place to stand amidst the uncertainty of the hour, and that sense of emotional security is somewhat threatened with Neptune so prominent at your nadir during this spring and summer. The solution is to trust more in faith than in reason, and to allow yourself to believe in paradox and simply to let go as necessary, rather than being overly dogmatic or mentally Fixed on particular outcomes. The final two weeks of this period of time, punctuated by the Last Quarter Moon of Easter Sunday, April 24th, will be spent in mulling over these and other issues that have arrived to the level of your conscious thinking though the events of this particularly powerful month.
