The year ahead looks healthy and happy. Things should go relatively well, with just a few challenges thrown in to keep things interesting. There is only one long-term planet, Neptune, in stressful alignment with you (although Jupiter will briefly join Neptune in stressful alignment, but not for very long). All the others are either making harmonious aspects or leaving you alone. Energy levels are basically good this year. With high energy all things are possible. Your challenge is to use your energy wisely.
Jupiter, your ruling planet, will spend most of the year in your 3rd house of communication and intellectual interests. So, this is a good year for students, writers, journalists, bloggers, and sales and marketing people. The intellectual and communication faculties are greatly enhanced.
Jupiter will make a brief foray into Pisces, your 4th house, from May 14 to July 29 before making his long-term transit on December 30. Home and family, and your emotional wellness, will become more important during that period, and it will be a good time to make psychological progress and have psychological breakthroughs. More on this later.
We have four eclipses this year. Two will occur in your own sign (the lunar eclipse of May 26 and the solar eclipse of December 4). This indicates a redefinition of yourself, your self-concept, how you see yourself and how you want others to see you. More on this in the monthly reports.
Pluto has been in your money house since 2008 and he will be there for many more years to come. You are in a cycle of purging your financial life (and possessions) of all that is extraneous or effete. You are giving birth to your ideal financial life and the birth process is rarely without pain. It is usually a messy business but the end result is good. More on this later.
Your major areas of interest this year are finance; communication and intellectual interests; home and family; and health and work.
Your paths of greatest fulfilment will be love and romance; communication and intellectual interests (until May 14 and from July 29 to December 30); and home and family (from May 14 to July 29 and from December 30 onwards).
(Please note that this is an astrological perspective on health and not a medical one. In days of yore there was no difference, both these perspectives were identical. But these days there could be quite a difference. For a medical perspective, please consult your doctor or health practitioner.)
Health should be good this year. As mentioned earlier, for most of the year there is only one long-term planet in stressful alignment with you. From May 14 to July 29, Jupiter will briefly be in stressful alignment – but this is not the trend for the year. All the other long-term planets are either in harmonious alignment or leaving you alone.
Your 6th house of health is prominent this year as well. So you are focused here. On the case. Health is important.
Good though your health is you can make it even better. Give more attention to the following – the vulnerable areas in your Horoscope (the reflex points are shown in the chart below):
A diagram of foot reflexology points for the year ahead. Caption reads:
- The liver and thighs are always important for Sagittarius as these are the areas that Sagittarius rules. Regular thigh massage will not only strengthen the liver and thighs but the lower back as well, and should be a regular part of your health regime. A herbal liver cleanse every now and then would also be good.
- The neck and throat. These too are always important for you as Venus, the ruler of these areas, is your health planet. Regular neck massage should be the norm. Tension tends to collect there and needs to be released. Craniosacral therapy is also good for the neck.
- The kidneys and hips too are ruled by Venus, and so are especially important for Sagittarians. Hip massage will not only strengthen the kidneys and hips themselves, but also the lower back. A herbal kidney cleanse every now and then would be beneficial.
- The ankles and calves gained in importance when Uranus entered your 6th house of health in 2019, but they will be important for many more years to come. So, massage these areas regularly. Feel for sore spots and massage them out. Give the ankles more support when exercising.
When it comes to health you’re in an exciting and illuminating period of life. Uranus in your 6th house is making you more experimental in health matters (in some cases perhaps too much). You are learning that all the normal rules about health (and many have some merit to them) don’t necessarily apply to you. You are a unique individual, wired up in a unique way. You’re not a statistic. You’re not ‘average’. Things that work for others might not work for you, while things that have been debunked or disproven for others could work for you. So, you’re in a period of learning about yourself and how you function. This is generally done through trial, error and experimentation. This is how we acquire true knowledge.
Really, this is every person’s job in life. But for you the time is now.
Because your health planet, Venus, is so fast-moving, there are many short-term trends in health that depend on where she is at any given time and the aspects she receives. These are best dealt with in the monthly reports.
Home and Family
Home and family have been prominent for many years now as Neptune has been in your 4th house since 2012. This year it becomes even more prominent as Jupiter has a brief sojourn there – from May 14 to July 29 – before returning there for the long haul on December 30.
Thus, moves and/or renovations could happen this year – but they are more likely next year. The family circle tends to expand as well. Usually this happens through birth or marriage, but not always. Often one meets people who are ‘like’ family, who fulfil that role in life.
Jupiter is the ruler of your Horoscope. His move into your 4th house is very significant. It shows a great focus on family – a genuine focus. Family values are more important to you and many of you are looking to start your own family. Women of childbearing age are more fertile this year – and next year even more so.
Sagittarians are generally ‘upbeat’ optimistic people. This year this is especially true – particularly from May 14 to July 29. It is a good period for making psychological progress and for attaining psychological breakthroughs.
Neptune in your 4th house shows that you favour homes that are on or near water – on or near the ocean, rivers and lakes. It shows that family members are more spiritual these days – a long-term trend – and that the home will be used to hold prayer meetings, meditation sessions or spiritual-type lectures or events.
Neptune likes to reveal what is hidden. Thus, there are all kinds of revelations happening in the family and especially with a parent or parent figure. Neptune reveals everything – the good and the bad. So, there can be scandals in the family or with a parent or parent figure.
Your emotional life is becoming more spiritualized – more sensitive. Thus you (or family members) are more easily hurt. Voice tones and body language have a disproportionate effect on you and them. Tread lightly and softly with the family. Sagittarius tends to be blunt and honest, but this can be seen as cruel – even if you don’t mean it that way.
If you’re renovating the home in a major way, February 19 to March 20 and May 14 to July 29 are good times. If you’re merely redecorating or otherwise beautifying the home, February 25 to March 21 is a good time. Your aesthetic sense is sharper and the results will be better.
Finance and Career
Pluto, as we mentioned, has been in your money house for many years now – since 2008. So there has been a great focus on finance. Last year, the focus was even stronger, and the year should have been very prosperous. This year the focus is less intense, but there is still a focus.
Pluto in your money house gives many messages. It shows a need for tax efficiency. Many of your financial decisions are governed by tax considerations. It shows a need for good estate planning for those of appropriate age. Many of you have inherited money over the past twelve years or have otherwise profited from estates. It is (and has been) a good time to borrow or pay down debt – depending on your need. There is (and has been) good access to outside capital. If you have good investment ideas, there are investors out there waiting to back you.
But, as we mentioned, you are in a cycle of ‘purging’ the financial life of dross – waste – redundancies. Pluto in the 2nd house shows that you prosper by ‘cutting back’. If you eliminate waste, you suddenly find yourself prosperous without needing to do much.
You’re also in a cycle of getting rid of possessions that you don’t need or use. These can be considered like plaque or clots in the financial arteries – they block the new and better that wants to come in. So de-clutter the possessions. Use should be the primary consideration. If a thing is no longer used, sell it or give it to charity. Open up the arteries of supply.
Last year, Saturn, your financial planet, made a major move from Capricorn (where he had been for 2 ½ years) into Aquarius – from your 2nd house to your 3rd. He will be in Aquarius for all of the year ahead. Thus, you’re spending more on communication equipment, education, books and periodicals. Perhaps you’re buying a new car as well. (This could have happened last year, but if not, it can happen this year too.) But you can also earn from these things. These are excellent aspects for writers, teachers, journalists, bloggers, sales and marketing people. They should have a good financial year. Siblings, sibling figures and neighbours seem involved in your financial life. Financial opportunities can be found right in your neighbourhood.
The financial planet in Aquarius favours the high-tech world, the online world, companies that innovate or invent things. It favours business start-ups as well. You have a good feeling for companies that are involved with science, astronomy, astrology, transportation and electronic media.
When Saturn was in Capricorn you were very conservative financially. Now you seem more adventurous – more experimental. By nature you are a risk-taker, but you have been more circumspect over the past few years. Now you’re ready for more risk taking. (As long as you don’t overdo this it’s OK.)
Career is not prominent this year. Your 10th house is basically empty. Only short-term planets move through there and their effects are temporary. And because your career planet Mercury is so fast-moving, there are many short-term career trends that are best dealt with in the monthly reports.
Love and Social Life
Neither your 7th house of love and romance nor your 11th house of friends is prominent this year. So, the social arena doesn’t seem a major interest. This tends to the status quo. Singles tend to remain single. Those who are married tend to remain married. Those in relationships tend to stay in their relationships. We can read this as a positive. There is a contentment with things as they are and there’s no pressing need to focus here.
There will be a solar eclipse on June 10 that occurs in your 7th house of love. This can create some shake-ups here, but good relationships tend to weather these shake-ups – they get even better. It’s the flawed ones that are in danger. We will discuss this more fully in the monthly reports.
Your love planet, Mercury, and your planet of friends, Venus, are both fast-moving planets. During the course of the year both of them will move through every sign and house of your Horoscope. Thus, there are many short-term love and social trends that depend on where Mercury and Venus are and the kinds of aspects they receive. These are best discussed in the monthly reports.
Your love planet will go retrograde three times this year (his norm) – from January 30 to February 20, May 29 to June 21 and from September 27 to October 17. These are times when relationships seem to go backwards rather than forwards and the social confidence is not up to its usual standard. So, these are times to review your relationships and see where improvements can be made. They are not good times for making important love decisions, one way or another. These are times for gaining clarity in love.
In general, you are attracted to people with the gift of the gab. You like smart people – intellectuals. You like people with whom you can share ideas and who are easy to talk to. Intellectual compatibility is just as important as all the other compatibilities. This year, with the ruler of your Horoscope in the 3rd house, these tendencies are even stronger than usual.
Because Mercury moves so fast, love and social opportunities can come in various ways and through various people. Your needs in love tend to change quickly as well. These will be covered in the monthly reports.
The current spouse, partner or current love is having a very spiritual year. Much spiritual change and ferment is going on with him or her. He or she is changing teachers, teachings and practices – and this can happen at the drop of a hat.
A parent or parent figure is having an outstanding love year – especially from May 14 to July 29. Next year will be even better. If he or she is single, marriage or a serious committed relationship is likely.
Children and children figures are having a stable love and social year. Singles will tend to stay single and those who are married will tend to stay married. Grandchildren (if you have them), or those who play that role in your life, are having a strong social year. If they are single marriage could happen – marriage or a serious committed relationship, a relationship that is like a marriage.
Pluto has been in your money house for many years now, and we have already discussed some of the worldly effects of this. But since Pluto is your spiritual planet, there is more to say. This long transit shows someone who is going deeper into the spiritual dimensions of wealth – the spiritual attitude towards it – the spiritual approach. Sagittarius understands these things intuitively. But over the past twelve years you’ve really explored this topic, and this will continue.
First, the spiritual attitude is to follow intuition. This, as regular readers know, is the short cut to wealth. One millisecond of true intuition is worth many years of hard labour. Many will be surprised to learn that the Divine cares about your material well-being. Worldly comfort seems so unspiritual, doesn’t it? Yet the Divine cares about it (as you are undoubtedly learning). It cares that you have nice things and nice clothing. It concerns itself with the minutiae of your life. Nothing is too big, nothing too small.
One of the things you are learning is that it’s not ‘money’ that you need. You need the consciousness of the Affluence of the Divine. Affluence is so much more than just money. It means having the right help when you need it; getting a great parking space when you need it; getting guidance and direction when you need it; meeting just the right people that you need in your life. And more.
Wealth is basically a spiritual quality. It is an influx from the Mind of the Divine into your auric field. It comes in as formless substance and energy and through beautiful and natural processes (the planetary forces play a big role here) it becomes the physical, tangible things that we call wealth. It is as natural as clouds becoming rain.
So, if finances trouble you, don’t rush off looking for a job or for some worldly solution. No, get quiet, get connected to the Divine and ask for its affluence to fill your mind. Now, don’t think that actions won’t happen. Of course they will. The Divine Affluence could lead you to a job or give you an idea or hunch or intuition. It could inspire you to invest in something. It could inspire you to call a certain person (but, more likely, the person will contact you). Sure, actions are necessary, but they don’t cause the affluence. They are the side effects of the action of the Spirit of Affluence.
With your spiritual planet in your money house, financial information can come to you in dreams or through meditation. Take note of your dreams. Take note of the images you receive in your meditations. Financial guidance can also come through astrologers, tarot readers, psychics, spiritual channels or ministers.
You’re in a cycle for having ‘miracle money’. Natural money – money that comes from your job, parents or investments – is also miracle money, but disguised. But miracle money comes in unexpected – unimagined – ways. You’ll know it when it happens
