The Sun enters Sagittarius on Nov. 21. This is the time when we are near the end of the year and we can look back and take stock of what we have experienced and accomplished. It is harvest time, both literally and figuratively, and we celebrate Thanksgiving, which is a truly Sagittarian holiday. We give thanks and have gratitude for the abundance that life has bestowed upon us, both material and spiritual. Sagittarius also wants us to review our year and distill wisdom and understanding from our experiences. Reflect on what you have learned so that you can more wisely make plans for the future.

Aries (March 21-April 19) You can gain deeper insight into who you are now. There is an opening to more expanded visions of possibilities, and a recognition on your part of a more elevated sense of being. But there are also some rather intense emotional conflicts that you are dealing with that need to be examined and resolved. Don’t let them hold you back as you move ahead.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) There is an intensity of feelings and emotions that you are dealing with now. Overall you feel good; your heart is open and you are moving ahead dynamically with your life. You have a sense of stability and clarity of mind that supports you in moving forward confidently. But you also feel somewhat restless and you need to develop patience.


Gemini (May 21-June 21) You feel a responsibility to articulate your thoughts and ideas, and a need to put them into action. There is support for you to be creative and explore the grandeur of life. Soul and spirit are calling out to you to connect with these deeper aspects of life. A new sense of self is in the process of unfolding for you.

Cancer (June 22-July 22) This is a supportive time for important inner research. Your psychic ability is very strong and able to tune in to very elevated frequencies. Besides feeling a profound sense of well-being, you have access to a significant body of wisdom. You need to ground this knowledge, communicate it to others, and put it into action.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Your fundamental nature of creative love is waiting to come out into expression. It is important that you reconnect with the joy of life. Play, have fun, and do what you love to do. In the process you will find yourself and move to the next level of your personal development. You will feel wiser and freer as a result.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Now is an excellent time for you to put into action those thoughts and ideas that you have been considering for some time. They are ripe for fulfillment. Remember the cosmic law: thinking is the basis of action, action is the basis of achievement, and achievement is the basis of fulfillment. This is the time for you to go for the gold.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) There can be some power struggles at work that need to be dealt with. Your fundamental nature is to be the peacemaker and to adjust and accommodate yourself to everyone else’s needs. Now you have to take a stand and be strong in standing up for what is right for you. You have the strength, drive, and courage to resolve this situation diplomatically.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21) You are very balanced and grounded and ready to take a significant step forward for your personal development. Your mind and heart are both open and ready to move forward to the next level of experience and understanding. There is a need for you to take personal responsibility for your growth in order to take advantage of this special time.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) This is your month to shine. The theme for you this month is to reconnect with the joys of life, and in following this path there is personal self-discovery awaiting you. But there is an element of confusion and disorientation you will encounter that will make the goal of self-realization that much sweeter.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) This month can bring you some classic experiences where you have to make some choices or learn how to balance, harmonize, and integrate the opposites. You will be confronted by situations that demand change on your part from your usual perspective. Will you refuse to change or will you incorporate the needed changes into your life?  It is up to you.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You are increasingly feeling the need for freedom. The old patterns of limitations and boundaries in your life are holding you back from a more elevated state of being. You sense and feel these forces within you and you know that you must honor them. There is a movement going on in your life towards manifesting a more authentic sense of self. Go for it!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) There is a strong inner pull on your attention, drawing you towards meditation and spiritual practice. You have an opportunity to deepen your experience and assimilate new wisdom and understanding. You can move from a state of confusion and lack of clarity to one of profound insight and revelation.
