It hasn’t been an easy go for you guys lately.  Ever since late December of 2014 things started to go downhill haven’t they?  Either you lost your job, had troublesome dealings with authority figures, health concerns, or a heap of responsibilities thrown at you.  This may not be the kind of news you wanted to hear especially on your birthday, but downhill doesn’t have to mean that its the end of the world Sagittarius! After all you’re not considered the luckiest sign of the zodiac for nothing.
Normally, Sagittarians walk around with both feet planted in mid-air, which gives the sign a reputation for being a bit eccentric, but right now those feet are being forced to the sidewalk.  Did you know that Saturn rules concrete?  He also rules authority figures.  When Mr.Saturn comes along it is best to think of him as the big boss who owns you, demanding the best of you for your own good.  If you don’t measure up, like slacking or shirking your duties, Saturn will let you know.  You may be called in for a one-on-one with him or her, whatever the gender.  If you have been guilty of doing work that is considered average instead of stellar, well then, that’s the reason the boss called you in for a sit down.  Since you normally have Jupiter on your side, the sit down might just be a warning.  So if that’s the case you had better pull up your bootstraps and roll up your sleeves and do whatever you can to make things right.  Saturn is all about right.  He always points out the wrongs.
So keep your nose to the grindstone and show the boss what you are really made of, otherwise don’t be surprised when the next time you’re invited into the boss’s office you will be asked to hand in your ID badge.

Now there are other times when people getting Saturn transits can get pulled into drama’s within the workplace through no fault of their own like during a merger.  In that case all you can do is pray that the inevitable won’t happen because everybody knows that mergers are like diets.  Something has to be eliminated for the greater good.  It doesn’t have to mean that you’re out of a job, but just to be safe I would suggest updating your resume and getting in contact with a good headhunter.

Since Saturn will be affecting your natal Sun which represents a person’s vitality.  Its transits to the Sun may be Saturn’s way of trying to tell you about a health issue. When I saw that Saturn was getting close to my 6th house of health I took myself to the doctor.  I didn’t have any symptoms, I just knew astrologically it would be a good idea.  Thankfully because of that visit and the help of an amazing doctor, I’m alive to tell about it.  In fact ever since Saturn began to transit the sign of Sagittarius, all the mutable signs would have benefited from routine check ups.  Those signs include
Gemini, Virgo, Pisces and of course Sagittarius; especially if you are a Gemini rising.

“So where’s the good stuff.” You are probably asking right now.  The good stuff will be easy to see after the transit passes.  You’ll be able to see your Saturn Transit Report card by reflecting on how you handled the tough stuff. Karma is a bitch and we can never escape it.  No other sign like Sag can tap into the universe and get ideas bigger than Jupiter himself to use and make life bigger and better the way its supposed to be.

So stop your sniveling.  The transit will be over soon and you can pass the baton over to Capricorn. That sign is well acquainted with Saturn and his bag of roadblocks.  You could learn a thing or two from them. It will all be over by December 21, 2017 so just get on with it.

Sagittarius Considered

Sagittarius by Erté

In his book, Astrology published 1964, Louis MacNeice, not an astrologer, but a poet and scholar, gathered together much of interest from a variety of sources, ancient and modern. On zodiac sign Sagittarius, through which the Sun now travels, he wrote the paragraphs below, quoting from some professional astrologers, whose works may now be lesser known by the average

Jupiter Here and There

The Sun has just moved into zodiac sign Sagittarius. Jupiter, being ruler of Sagittarius makes this a good time to investigate the giant planet’s place in our natal charts.

These notes are taken from Ivy Goldstein-Jacobson’s book
“Here and There in Astrology” (1961).

Jupiter is the planet of abundance, generosity or over-generosity so that he also rules obesity; great

Jefferson (Jeff) Sessions – A Donald Trump Pick for High Office.

Taking a look, astrologically, at another member of Donald Trump’s picks for “high office” in his administration (see also my post for Tues. 15 November on Stephen Bannon).

No sign is more idealistic, loyal, commitment oriented and obsessive than a Scorpio.  Are you single and looking for a lifetime partner; one who you can trust to stick with you through thick and thin?  Try dating a Scorpio.  Once this sign thinks you are the one, you’ll become like a tattoo on their brain or gum on your shoe or whatever analogy you appreciate more. Their specialty is obsessing; whether its choosing a vacation spot, home decor or just meeting for dinner, Scorpios fixate on things and people that are important to them like a stalker does its prey.   So if this is your idea of relationship bliss, please be my guest.  Just giving you a heads up before you decide to become the proverbial ball and chain . But I jest…certainly there are terrific Scorpio’s out there someplace whose endearing qualities make you feel like your prayers have been answered.

Don’t worry about finances your Scorpio will take control of them for you; they specialize in keeping their hands in everybody else’s pockets.  That’s why some of them choose professions like law where they specialize in wills and estates. Where some people would shy away from careers that are associated with death, Scorpio’s are often the exception rather than the rule.  Any Scorpio worth his salt knows that there’s good money in funeral homes, embalming and forensics.   Their ability to get to the bottom of things also make them excellent detectives. Nothing gives them a sense  of satisfaction like tracking down a murder suspect. Scorpio’s ruling planet Pluto, is associated with the opening at the end of the alimentary canal.  In case you didn’t know this there is a ton of money to be made in the field of gastroenterology.  How do I know this?  Because My primary doctor told me so.  Let’s not forget, Pluto rules mega money. 

Now before you think that I’m not being flattering to Scorpio’s, remember this sign has been blessed with immeasurable intensity of purpose as well as a capacity to be there for you through thick and thin.  Just when everyone decides to abandon you, the last sign standing, probably at your deathbed will be the 8th sign of the zodiac.
