week of November 22-28 2015
Welcome to Sagittarius! Ruled by planet Jupiter, named for supreme ruler of the gods (Greek: Zeus), it follows that Sagittarius women draw on the archetype of Jupiter’s female counterpart, Juno (Greek: Hera), the undisputed queen of heaven and goddess of women and of power—as ever the twain shall meet—akin, as it is, to knowledge, the major attribute of the ninth astrological house corresponding to the the ninth sign of Sagittarius. Don’t you just love the notion of power being personified in a female deity? Surely, it’s a power that has been a target of suppression. And yet, of all the female signs laboring under a patriarchal paradigm for centuries, Sagittarian women managed most to distinguish themselves, wielding force and influence on a global scale, in probably the only way historically afforded them: by way of publishing, another major attribute of the ninth astrological house—along with philosophy, belief systems, higher education and all means of mind expansion and genius. An otherwise isolated world of disenfranchised people, women especially, would never have experienced the brilliance—Juno’s power manifested as blinding radiance—of Jane Austen, George Eliot, Emily Dickinson, Louisa May Alcott, Willa Cather and others whose inheritors include Madeline L’Engle, Dawn Powell, Joan Didion, Rita Mae Brown, Sarah Silverman and, by extension, artist Marina Abramovic. Fittingly, the powerful Sagittarius female writer has often penned work along themes of the female estate, or the power of higher-mind consciousness, or both. Don’t get us started on Ellen Burstyn—have you read her autobiography Lessons In Becoming Myself? And let us not forget the authoress of I, Tina whose autobiography is hinged on her personal struggles against male oppression. Tina herself is a hinge pin of the Sagittarius archetype, being something of a showgirl and a showboat. For Sagittarius power isn’t just expressed in expository writing, it’s exhibited in an overt brand of talented expression that rarely shies away from over-exposure. And in that tradition we give you Betty Grable, Maria Callas, Bette Midler, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Nelly Furtado and, without so much as singing a note, Anna Nicole Smith.
With the Full Moon, by Wednesday, opposing Sun, Saturn and Mercury, you’re already in search of validation. This is an extinction burst of old behavior surfacing so you can eradicate it once and for all. Don’t unduly lean on loved ones nor lay blame on them. You build emotional muscle by eschewing overly sophisticated enclaves and embracing your childlike nature and wholesome fun. Play nerf ball, jump in leaf piles, bob for apples or spin the bottle. Be frank with your agenda—don’t let others infer you’ve ulterior motives.
You’re infinitely more organized and efficient than surrounding folk—they might work in a linear fashion, as you circle success—so trust that you’re outstripping others. However, you engender no good will by rubbing their noses in the fact. Wednesday’s Full Moon, which impacts myriad planets, brings clarity and the forgoing of a need to be right all the time. Perhaps you’ve outgrown a partnership paradigm; and it’s time to move to greener pastures where you’re free to make your own mistakes. Surely, personal liberation is at hand.
The Full Moon, Wednesday, affecting many planets, hits home the fact: you haven’t daydreamed much lately. Once upon a time you did nothing but. It’s actually how you conjured realities you’re now living. So here we go again. Only, this time, your reveries focus on creative expression not the gaining of knowledge or power. Your new dreams are a means to an end: You see how increased artistry opens a doorway onto a more spiritual existence. Even the lovelorn among you may happen upon a tender soul mate.
Fret not if self-styled genius notions seem to run counter to public opinion or demand. Nigh on Wednesday’s impactful Full Moon it’s key to remain true to your visions. If anything, expand them. Put notions further out there, beyond small minds, and expect them to catch like wildfire. You may feel unmoored but we promise you’re not. Creativity simply takes collagist form now. Trust instincts about people, places, and things and steer clear where your gut says so. A new project involving enlightened beings is green lighted.
Don’t deliberate. You might all too easily talk yourself out of the sorts of opportunities you kicked yourself for passing on in the past. With Wednesday’s Full Moon, opposing Saturn and Mercury, a redesign-for-living is at hand. The only requirement is to put so-called pipe dreams first and money concerns a distant fortieth. Now begins a happy process of dissolution in your life, so you can better, well, process and make peace with bidding good riddance to old rubbish, creating space for greater abundance that’s in store.
Leading up to Wednesday’s Full Moon, you feel life coming full circle. You may return to old stomping grounds, revisit projects or, even, people ditched. There is a suggestion that one bond, in particular, that you nipped in the bud is yearning for rekindling. Though you’ll convince yourself that reconciliation is a result of others having changed, the truth is you have. Fess up: You once frosted out friends for fear they were souring on you. But you’re now eager to wipe the slate clean and accept simple gifts of friendship on offer.
In anticipation of the resonant Full Moon, Wednesday, you’re endowed with a sort of x-ray vision. You see through sycophants and scheisters disguised as sincere; and you rally the more myopic to stand up for their rights on the job, socially, or in their own intimate bonds. The Sun entering Sagittarius provides you a voice that is heard above a din of disinformation. It’s sufficient to use it to empower those close at hand; while a seed is planted that will grow into a wider platform for your wise, motivational words and ideals.
You’re already a whiz at exposing subversion and reading subtext, especially when it comes to financial workings. With Saturn and Mercury opposing the Full Moon, Wednesday, be meticulous in wording and interpreting communiqués. Get all deals in writing; and do detective work, researching any new figures in your career landscape. An air of mystery suffuses your experience and inspiration can come from exotic quarters. Dig deep into foreign realms of interest for creative direction. A secret admirer won’t be.
It’s time to cultivate healthy detachment, leading to Wednesday’s complex Full Moon. Prioritize making new acquaintances over administering to samey bonds, some of which are too close for comfort. This may irk co-dependents. However, sincerely significant others provide room to spread your wings. Those who don’t are up for elimination. Extend olive branches where pangs tell you to, if only for your own peace of mind. Never mind if they get slapped down. The Sun in Sagittarius makes your daily grind groovier.
The Full Moon opposing the Sun, Saturn and Mercury, by Wednesday synergizes master plans with the many steps it takes to realize them. On the flipside, you may get lost in details. Prioritize to-dos on your list; and tackle them one tick at a time. Don’t multi-task. Stick to work schedules and wellness routines, but go at half speed and close shop earlier than usual. Eschew fatuous group gatherings. Rise and shine earlier, read, and do start or resume meditating. Saturn square Neptune signals a challenging, lucrative opportunity.
Focus on what’s working. As the Full Moon approaches, quit fighting any uphill battles and let yourself play on winning teams. Jumping sinking ships isn’t wrong or easy, while over-sentimentality is a professional pitfall you needn’t fall into. You brim with feeling; and those trying to muffle it don’t deserve your emotional investment. But they will miss it when it’s gone. The Sun in Sagittarius reveals those waiting in the wings to do right by your affection. Avoid interactions that trigger self-destruction. You know what we mean.
Despite appearances, there’s no such thing as a dead end now. The waxing Full Moon, opposing Sun, Saturn and Mercury, all squaring Neptune, makes you a genius at compromise solutions—you possess surplus hutzpah to out-think and -maneuver others at the bargaining table. It’s key to pinpoint professional objectives, strengthening emotional resolve and sharpening navigational skills in negotiations. You now break through creative blocks. Surely, you’ll look back on this time as a milestone mark in your success.
