SAGITTARIUS

You need to make sure you are not being your own worst enemy! That might sound dramatic, but it’s too easy for you to let your self-esteem go up in clouds of black smoke right now, with destroyer Pluto in your 2nd House and Saturn in your sign. The more you can believe in yourself and, in particular, forget about the past, the better. Do make plans for the coming 12 months. Now is the time for you to strategise for your future. Saturn will reward you with stability.

A BIT OF INFORMATION FOR ALL THE SIGNS

Regular readers will know that we are going into 2017 with communications planet Mercury retrograde. When Mercury goes backwards, mayhem often ensures!

So if you have had a rather topsy-turvy holiday season so far, that could well be the reason why.

Mercury retrograde has an upside though; it’s the time to rethink, redo and revisit. In other words, if you find yourself taking a walk down memory lane as 2017 dawns, that’s Mercury.

Missed meetings and miscommunications often happen under this cycle, too, though. The way to handle Mercury retrograde upsets is to keep your sense of humour, even if it’s a bit against the odds! Mercury ends his retrograde cycle on January 8.

Note that the start of the year is also obviously the ideal time to set your intentions for the year ahead. What do you want to achieve in the coming 12 months?

Whether you have plans for adventure, or to get in shape, or anything else, it’s not too late to make some last minute New Year’s resolutions. In fact, the New Moon on January 28 makes that the perfect day to recommit to your plans for 2017, if you fall off the wagon early!

And after January 8, once Mercury changes direction and start to go forwards again, this is where the communications planet will be for you…

For you, Mercury has been going backwards in your FIRST HOUSE – that means your entire life has been subject to madness and mayhem as Mercury has played his funny little tricks (not) all over you. If life has been chaotic beyond belief of late, now you know why! This weekend, as Mercury changes directions, you can expect (or at least allow for the possibility) one last blast of mayhem. And after that? It’s smoother sailing. There will be fewer crossed wires, less drama and much, much less to-ing and fro-ing.

 

WHERE THE FOCUS IS FOR YOU THIS MONTH…

As the Sun goes around the skies over the course of a year, it acts as a sort of spotlight on our charts. So every year around the same time, you get certain issues in focus. The way to work with the solar energies is to have a think about how confident you feel in the part of your chart that’s letting the Sun shine in! Here is where the Sun is focused for you this month:

This month, the Sun moves out of your sign and into your 2nd house – many of you may feel a bit of a drop in power levels, as though someone has turned down your wattage. That’s fine and nothing to worry about. It’s just that the Sun has moved out of your sign for another year, so life will feel less like it’s being lived under the harsh glare of a spotlight; life should feel less intense; you now get a chance to catch you breath. Breathe! Over the next four weeks, as this shift takes place, it’s important to think about what you really value in your life – materially and emotionally – and to have a look at how much you love yourself (and ask if you could love yourself more). PS Money is good but don’t make the mistake of thinking that having ‘stuff’ makes you a better person…

 

AND IN LOVE NEWS…

This month sees the planet of love and abundance, Venus, move into the very romantic sign of Pisces. This is good news for all the lovers out there. The vibe will be dreamier, people will be more like putty in your hands, love falls in love with lovers. Venus, of course, is the planet of love and abundance – so wherever she is in your chart is where you have more access to romance and riches. Here is what Venus in Pisces means for you.

Venus is now moving through your fourth house of home and family, where she’ll stay for around four weeks. This marks the start of a relatively quiet time when you’re far more likely to be found happily ensconced at home than out on the town. Book your calendar up over the next four weeks so that you get to spend plenty of time chez toi, either with a loved one, friends or family, or at least a couple of DVDs and a loving cat. Venus here in this part of your chart is less visible than she is in other sectors. If you want to take time out from the hustle and bustle, do so. You have the skies on your side. It’s clichéd but true – home really is where the heart is for you now. You can expect to feel quite peaceful over the next few weeks – what you’ll want is to proceed quietly, surrounded (if possible) only by people you love. You only get this chance to reconnect with this side of yourself once a year, so make the most of it. If you’re thinking of doing up your home, renovating or decorating, you have the stars totally on your side.

 

WHERE’S THE MOON?

The start of the New Year feels exciting and brimming with potential. And then here comes this very emotional Full Moon which is all about letting go. So how does that work? It might help to remember that in fact the so-called start of the New Year is also just a human construct/measurement we have dreamed up and live out lives in accordance with. Use the Full Moon this month the same way you would any Full Moon, as a chance to let go of the past and to forgive whoever you need to. Repeating this line alone, silently or out loud, could really help: “I forgive positively everyone in all directions of time”. Try it. Breathe in. Say it. And then e-x-h-a-l-e.

 

Making a 2017 Goodbye + Gratitude list

A wonderful practise to do sometime before the January 12 Full Moon would be to make a Goodbye + Gratitude list. To do this, start by making a list of everything you’re saying goodbye to from 2016 (you can do this before or after New Year, it doesn’t affect anything). Write down any heart break, upsets, disappointments, recriminations or regrets you have left over for 2016. Write it all down. Express it (get it?) Let it out and let it go … and then burn the list. And then replace all that you have released with a Gratitude list. All you have to do here is write down the names of at least three people, places or situations that you are truly grateful for. Bringing them to mind will fill you with gratitude, which is one of the ideal energetic states to be in. The more you can feel gratitude for the good in your life, the better your life will be. It’s just the way the Universe works. Try it and you will see.

 

A thought for the Full Moon…

The Goddess of the January Full Moon is Diana – the huntress! What are you determined to do or achieve in 2017? Ask Diana to help you to release fears and doubts on the night of the Full Moon in her sign.

 

The chakra of the Full Moon is Ajna, the Third Eye chakra.

The chant is “Ommm…” Trying chanting this around Full Moon time and see which insights come to you!

 

What the Full Moon means for you…

This Full Moon is all about finding a balance between what you give in life and what you take. If you know you’ve been doing too much of either, it’s most certainly time to redress the balance. The problem is that when we give too much but we don’t know how to take, we actually mess with the natural laws which govern free flow. How can the Universe send you an abundant stream of good things if you’re not receiving them without a fight? Now is a very good time to attend to practical financial matters, like paying off debts and settling personal bills. Also very good for investing some emotion in the boudoir.

This month the Full Moon takes place at 23 Cancer –

Sagittarius – so what do you want for yourself financially in the New Year? This is the time for you to set your intentions – it could be easier to renegotiate things than you expect.

Capricorn – the New Moon in your sign and Mercury retrograding in Capricorn makes December/January pivotal – turn and face the direction you want to go in. Use it or lose it.

Aquarius – take some time to retreat from the silly season social madness now – the New and Full Moon are both reminding you that we all need time out every now and then.

AND FINALLY… YOU ALSO NEED TO KNOW THAT…

 

This might be a pretty intense month for you but you could also end it feeling a bit wiser. The hard planet Saturn is still in your sign (and will stay there all year) which means you’re the sign most able to learn amazing life lessons in 2017. However not all of them are totally welcome, put it like that. Sometimes you might wish for an easier ride. But if you can decide to really learn from any dramas this month, the rest of 2017 will be easier. Also a great month to make sure you getting your message across an/or to work on your communication skills.

Power date: January 11 – don’t go over the top!
