Sagittarius Horoscope (November 22 - December 21)
Your ruling planet is Jupiter.
It’s a tricky business now, Sagittarius, as you enter the New Year. This is a time of putting security needs uppermost and yet it is not financial security that you truly seek. There is also the stability and the deep psychological security that comes from knowing that you are on the path dictated by soul-purpose and that no matter how far away you remain from actually articulating that inner vision, you have done your best to do so. To this end, you have cosmic forces coming to your aid. You are ripe for significant progress there. You are undoubtedly dealing with financial fluctuations and issues with resources, but they take a back seat compared to finding your true pathway forward, the road that is aligned with soul purpose, which is the place to put your full attention.
As the month begins, you are struggling somewhat to keep it all together, but feeling fundamentally optimistic. The Christmas Eve New Moon from the end of the previous month has illuminated certain concerns, such as with financial and other resources, but also revealed opportunities for service to the surrounding collective which could have the effect of leading you out of the trap. It is a trap to begin with when you think of finances first and service second, instead of the other way around. Putting everything into proper perspective – and into true alignment with your highest purpose for yourself – takes the determination and the daring to be different, and that is a big part of what is up for you right now. Heading into the first six months of this new year of 2012, you are completing the forging of a new self-image. This continues to the next level the work that was begun over the period of the last several months or even seasons in preparation for this moment in time. You are standing outer world achievement on its head, seeing everything from a spiritual vantage point in which soul-purpose is served by results and completions for inner rather than outer arenas. You simultaneously have trickster Uranus in your sector of self-expression and radically transformative Pluto in your sector of values and financial security, with their square is getting closer leading up to June 24th, the first of seven exact hits. The net result is that many curve balls are being thrown at you right now and over the next few months which ultimately serve to jolt you out of complacency and into the next phase of your spiritual evolution. During this time period also, Marsretrogrades in your action sector of career and professional life; as it does so you may find that you are gathering your energy for the late spring, when Mars returns to forward motion and also the Uranus-Plutosquare completes. In any case it will be an interesting journey over this first half of the year, one that it pays you to observe with the widest latitude and the fewest preconceptions in order that might take full advantage of these interesting and compelling cosmic influences coming down, and ride them to the best possible outcome. The Full Moon of late Sunday evening, January 8th, is a potent one that touches on all these building energies for epiphany and change. This is a time when you will be gathering your energies and thinking also how significant partners in your life might be helpful to you in fulfilling them. Finances are likely on your mind, both your own and shared resources with others, and the test of this time might be to relax and let go of judgment surrounding definite bottom lines or what happens next. Your self-concept is blossoming in a creative way that wipes out previous conceptions and seeks to establish a fresh start, but one that you are surprisingly energized about remaining committed to. These ideas might be tested by the time of the Last Quarter Moon, taking place on Monday, January 16th, since this lunar phase is typically one of re-assessment. You are looking to the future now but there might be a greater sense of limitation in your vision than you were previously willing to acknowledge. It pays to remember now that nothing’s either good or bad but thinking makes it so, and that a seeming downside can turn into a positive with the passage of time. You are storing up your impressions of what you will take forward into the next lunar cycle and indeed the next few months, and you are being challenged to take things from the standpoint of the largest possible picture. Old patterns that have held you back for far too long might be ready to be accepted as relative flaws that nevertheless do not in any way define your true nature. If so, then you can accept them for what they are and move on. With the New Moon of Sunday evening, January 22nd, you are taking another shot at the gold ring down inside you and perhaps coming closer this time to catching it.
