Sagittarius: The Archer
Sagittarius: The Archer
For the week of Monday, March 12, 2012
Taking risks isn’t unfamiliar to you, dear Sagittarius, and you’re usually pretty good at it. It seems of late you’ve been a little more conservative which is a good change for you but consider that sometimes taking risks includes calculating and timing them to your benefit. Right now, you would benefit from taking calculative risks in the creative realm to impress someone in authority or an employer. Demonstrating your skills and ability to think outside the box to create creative solutions would be a benefit to you now.
Aspects of late are all about helping you in many areas that have frustrated you for a while. These aspects would help you in terms of your job or work responsibilities, your earned income, and everything in general that would help ease your mind and assist you in creating a more harmonious life experience. There will be the usual and sundry challenges of Mercury’s Retrograde phase which began Monday, March 12th. The key is to act on the best dates as quickly and well thought out as possible. Your work and job efforts are on your mind and this is where you should direct much if not all of your focus to improve this area of your life. The Full Moon of March 8th should have indicated to you where you needed to place the most emphasis in terms of work, job, and career, especially if you’ve been looking for a new job or even a new post in your current job. Your tenth house of fame indicates if you are working on a new job or different post within the same company you should expect or have received and offer that would have boosted your income and even brought a little accolade and attention to you. Pay attention to that though we are not out of the four days minus/plus range of the Full Moon’s effect. If you were able to nail a deal regarding the same by March 9th, all should go well but if you weren’t able to, and due to Mercury in Retrograde, well, it would do you good to slow things down and hold off on making any formal commitments including signing and agreeing to anything even verbally, until mid to late April. Nothing will be lost in this time that you hold off and in fact, things would be better for you if you did or if you can at all wait it out. Of course there are times when we have to make a decision and agree to something regardless of astrology. Do what you can if you are able to delay things and if you cannot you’ll just have to proceed with caution. Mars is in the same tenth house of fame and will stay there until early July so you really do need to hold your horses if at all possible.
The Grand Trine in the sky at this time is in perfect form as of yesterday and today, March 13th, and this is quite a stunning and fortunate event in the heavens and includes the planets Mars, Venus, Pluto, and Jupiter. You should have been feeling the effect of this fantastic planetary aspect and should have a sense that things are going to work out — and they will. Your ruler is Jupiter and Mars will help you working closely with Venus in your sixth house of job and work. Jupiter being your ruling planet and part of the Grand Trine lends you quite a lot of good fortune and luck! Venus isn’t just the planet we associate with love: Venus also rules finances, too. Watch tomorrow, March 14th, for signs of Jupiter and Venus working to help you in the areas of job and work and will help you enjoy very much what new work should come to you. Friends will play an important role and may even be the ones who tell you about a new job or post at your current place of employment coming up if that’s not happened already. If the job goes to someone else, take heart, as all things happen for a reason and perhaps if you did not nail that job by March 9th it just wasn’t going to be the best thing for you because something better could come up or the talks could have caused you more problems that the job would have brought in opportunities. Stay positive because I swear by this: if something happens or doesn’t, it did or didn’t for a good reason. Those self-employed will benefit too. All these positive aspects when used with good timing and common sense could lead to new contracts and talks of the same.
You may have had a headache or two involving a living situation, something tied to real estate and home. You may have been pressured to make a decision or make a correction with a bank breathing down your neck. I always advise that when in doubt get as much professional help as possible and as much free advice as you can get. Things are tough now for just about everyone and no stone should be left unturned when seeking a solution to a big problem. If you had to move it would have been a good idea to get that done the beginning of the month because if you didn’t and now are trying to effect a move and find another home or rental, Mercury in Retrograde will make things a little sluggish and talks more complicated. Be sure, if this is the case, that you check everything twice before signing and leave yourself and out in the event the domicile you choose doesn’t work out for you. Cover yourself.
If you’re still trying to get a health plan in place to lose weight or improve a health situation, you’re still in good luck (forget about those New Year’s resolutions, I hate those, personally, as people seem to often set unrealistic expectations only to become disappointed and usually gain more weight!). Juiter will help you here in the location it is now — your health house — and will be there until summer. Do all you can to get a reasonable plan for weight loss and improving your health before the middle of June. This is something you can work on by writing a plan out on paper and sticking to it no matter what. Improving your health improves your outlook on life and even your attitude. When you’ve got a good attitude there’s no challenge too great that you can’t handle and your stress levels will be easier to manage.
Contemplate: It seems two areas of your life are really on your mind including your work, job, career, and your living situation. If you’re negotiating a new job or post and didn’t nail it by March 9th, you need to slow things down if at all possible. If you have to take a new job or post that is new at all including and especially in a new area of work or with a new company and must accept, proceed with caution as we are in Mercury Retrograde phase. Also, anything related to home, house, moving, new living space, etc., again if you did not get this done in the beginning of March, proceed with caution. God bless!
For the week of Monday, March 5, 2012
If you’re feeling confused or otherwise unable to justify your current thoughts and feelings at this time, take heart, know that you are just in flux and nothing more. If you are being asked why you think the way you do it’s also up to you to explain yourself — if you can at all. It’s not a comfortable feeling being in flux and not knowing how you feel from one moment to the next — and I won’t blame astrology here, we all change, grow, and sometimes don’t know exactly how we feel — and you certainly aren’t the most decisive person anyway — and that’s not a negative observation! Sagittarius is a delightful soul just the way they are. But there is real change happening within yourself and perhaps a level of regret laced into these changes, too. If you’ve amends to make, go ahead and make the first move to do so and if you’re asked why you did what you did just be honest and state that you don’t know — because you don’t! You may have thought you knew what you were doing at the time but really, you were just as confused as you may be now. The best advice I have would usually include “go with the flow’ but how can you go with the flow if you don’t know what the flow is? Alright, you get it. You don’t know what the flow is and you’re wondering what I’m talking about, right? Exactly. Nothing is going to make sense right now until things make sense to you. It would be like me trying to teach you another language and speaking it to you, giving you instructions, without telling you what the language I’m speaking is! And how about I speak to you in Urdu — do you even know what language that is? Right, you likely don’t. LOL look, it’s not going to be easy at this time and it may feel as if you’re on some meds that are clouding your mind. If you were on meds that cloud your mind you’d still go through the daily moves anyway — you don’t just quit your job because you lost your vibe and don’t know your purpose in life. You’d just go to work and do what you have to do and then go home and be confused all night long. For now, see this temporary confusion as just a little challenge and perhaps is a mental vacation for a little while. In time, you’ll figure it out, someone will say something that makes sense to you or “wakes you up” a bit and you’ll find your groove soon enough.
Contemplate: Don’t bother going to the doctor thinking you’re going crazy — you’re not. You’re just confused. For now, just know that you aren’t clear thinking because there’s nothing clear in your life right now. If you can remember the last time you were sure you knew what you were doing, go back to that place in your mind and retrace your steps. You’ll be alright, just relax and find the flow and if that doesn’t come soon enough, let things go for a while. Don’t bother checking yourself into the psych ward — you’re not nuts. God bless! Relax!
For the week of Monday, February 6, 2012
Do not begin a battle, Sagittarius, if you do not wish to risk war. You may be feeling frustrated and defensive on many levels but now is not the time to lose your head — or again, you risk a war and that would only bode troublesome for you. You’ve been working this hard on yourself for a while, Sag, and it is not a good time for many reasons to risk sliding back into useless old patterns and habits. You may be losing motivation due to many challenges you face now but losing ground is only going to complicate matters. Where has your hope and trust gone these days, my friend? You need to understand there is change happening in the big picture and if you lose sight of that you will lose much you’ve recently invested in yourself. If you stay calm and centered, goals can manifest more easily in the months to come. You’ve been looking within yourself to understand yourself better as well as those around you. Communication seems to remain challenging for you and your words don’t seem to convey what you want to express. But is there chance you are confusing your challenges with your choice of expression? Are you feeling so insecure that you are prone to blurting out things you didn’t (really) intend? Confusion is a state of mind in flux: not a state of mind to express yourself from. You may feel ill at ease with your changing sense of who you are and what you are to become. You may feel great need to express yourself in some way, about one thing, another, something — anything — but your confused state of mind due to the flux of change is speaking for you and you may come across as confusing, combative, or disjointed. Perhaps talking to people like yourself or people you detect are going through the same thing would ease your mind and you may find support and validation there. You may have a sense of knowing what you’re doing and at the same time feeling confused about how you’re doing it. Seek the spiritual and spiritual people to help you define yourself along the way especially when you feel at your wit’s end, at the end of your own rope. Don’t make matters worse by lashing out your confusion, rather, talk to people who can help you sort things out. If you do not have a clear sense of what you want or what you’re doing, or even how to know what you want do to, you won’t get far but you will become frustrated and fall, again, into old habits and thought forms. You must learn to cooperate and compromise with yourself and with others understanding that you may not be at your best at this time and expressing that you need patience from others also. This is a challenging time, Sag, but you can get through this.
Contemplate: Even amid confusion there is clarity that can be gained by expressing that confusion and asking for help. Seek a trusted adviser or health professional if the current influences create too much chaos in your mind. There is nothing wrong with asking for a little help even if just to understand that this too shall pass and things will be better in a short time. Think before you speak, act, or react.

Dear archer, you have been working on yourself so hard for so long. This trend continues for your own good and you should have noticed evidence of your spiritual alignment. This process has been under way for you for months now and you should know what I’m talking about. This has been a great time for preparation and you should see many changes that have been more than noticeable in you. We’re talking soul purpose here, not fun and games, Sag. The universe has been giving you every opportunity to see, understand, learn, and implement. Soul purpose is an inner realm, not the outer, exterior. It is literally a birth of some kind, a rebirth really, a realigning with who you were born to be and what you were meant to do and be example of in this world.
Sagittarius is usually, outwardly, self centered being — or so what people see on the outside — and perhaps, for some years, this was true. But not any more, Sag, this is the time in your life — call it the time in the sum total of all your incarnations — to literally rise up to the next level of spiritual advancement.
You’ve been dealing with Uranus, planet of tricks and surprises, self expression, in your sector of values and finances along with Pluto the planet of extreme transformation. This means that the square they’ve formed, gearing toward June 24th, has seven exact points or hits and what this means is that there is a lot coming at you and even some things coming at you that you won’t be able to anticipate. Why is this happening? What does the universe ask of you at this time? You are being asked to leave your comfort zone to further go into the next level of spiritual advancement. Maybe what I’m writing sounds heavy or hippie, spacey or strange, but if you search yourself you will know what I’m saying to be true. Mars retrograde in your sector of career and profession also means that you should be getting ready for the spring time when Mars goes direct and the Uranus-Pluto square is complete. You should go with the flow and be ready for anything and everything as it all bodes well for your evolution. Others will be of aid to you and there is nothing to fear. Just don’t sit still and take a fearful stance at what I’m saying: it’s all good and good for you. Financial matters continue to press upon your mind including shared finances. Again, others will be there for you including your partner. You need to not worry so much about what’s going to happen and just make sure you’re doing all you can to do your part. Worrying too much will just confuse your thinking, nothing more, and that’s not going to help you relax enough to allow spirit to work for you in this. If filing a bankruptcy helps, do that, no worries, that’s what it’s there for: relief. It’s about the big picture now, not the details, so get the junk that’s cluttering your peace out of the way. Anything that you consider a past mistake should be identified and released: it’s of no value. The new moon of the 22nd will bring you inspiring thoughts and ideas to go after, continually, what you want in life until you get and it looks to me that you will.
Contemplate: Never, ever, underestimate spiritual alignment, Sagittarius: that’s what is going to help you, believe it or not.
For the week of Monday, January 23, 2012
Sometimes we bite off more than we can chew and feel we can’t live up to the expectations we set ourselves up to. This can be a more uncomfortable situation than being let down by someone else who does not deliver what they promised because we only have ourselves to blame. But are you being too hard on yourself, Sagittarius, or are you raising the proverbial bar for yourself unconsciously? Either way, you are likely feeling the pressure you have placed upon yourself and you feel worse because you really don’t appreciate people promising more than they can or care to deliver. Stressing out about this isn’t going to make this challenge to complete obligations or favors go away and panicking will only keep you from thinking clearly. I advise that you sit down and figure out what you need to do in order to feel better including define your objective clearly. And since you’ve been there for others in similar situations before, even acting as coach, do call out for an assist if you need one and your friends will certainly help you any way they can.
Contemplate: Asking for help does not mean that you are helpless.

Dear Sagittarius, it’s not easy for me to say but I’ll state the obvious: not all that glitters is gold and not all people who smile at you are your friends. Perhaps you already know what I’m talking about. If not, I’ll enlighten you. When a person is very excited about a new venture, idea, or opportunity, they are somehow, unknowingly, prey for others, even opportunists. You could be offered something that glitters like gold by someone who smiles at you. It may be as simple as someone knocking at your door selling you something you don’t need and cannot afford at this time or it could be as complex as someone you know or met recently offering you something like online classes, instruction, or tutoring in some area of interest to you and obviously to them. You need to be careful, my friend, much as you would take care to watch for snakes while hiking in the tall grasses. I would advise you at this time to gently let the person you suspect I’m talking about right now, including if this is a group minded effort to pull you in, that you have a lot on your mind these days and need time to consider what they are telling/selling you. After all, what’s their hurry? Isn’t that enough to set you on edge? You likely already feel some sense of pressure either by one person or a group, and it could be a job that someone tells you that “you just HAVE to consider/pay for/ submit money with application” etc. You’ve been honing your intuitive skills and this is a good time to test them but not a good time to risk yourself. Take care, little friend, not every lion that smiles and yawns is SAFE to PET.
Contemplate: Just because you don’t see a cat’s claws doesn’t mean they aren’t there.

Something, Sagittarius, that you are now considering is causing you to weigh one option or another, be it a job you took, changed your mind on, something you purchased that was a significant purchased and are now rethinking the same, or a relationship that you began and ended. What happened in the past, your choices, are not the same as the new opportunities and chances coming your way. If you are closely associated with someone in this position, the influence is marked on your horoscope as their decisions affect yours. History never repeats itself, not exactly, so if you are considering an option right now that rings closely to another, you are advised to consider that this is not like the time, thing, situation, or relationship you had before. Just because that situation, as mentioned, in the past and possibly far back in the past, may not have been exactly what you wanted and you fear this same feeling will come back, that something will repeat itself, get that out of your head and go head and take that chance that you are considering, whatever it is, GO FOR IT. Do not fear, do not reach into the past sorrows, your disappointments, your sense of mistake. Let that all go and recognize that his is the now: the past is gone and with it went anything you had to do with it. So move forward, Sagittarius and go ahead: remember history never repeats itself and if it did, all things including TIME would have to be the same. Don’t give in to superstition!
Contemplate: That was then. THIS is now.
