November 22 – December 21
OUTGOING • PHILOSOPHICAL • DIRECT
As the Zodiac's adventurer, Sagittarius doesn’t stay at home. You were born to travel far and wide, especially internationally, for the Sagittarius mind is very active and craves new experiences. Almost nothing gives you as much pleasure as the prospect of flying to a foreign country to see and learn about a new culture. Being open and accepting of others is one of your most loveable traits. Honesty is also very important to Sagittarius; you can be disarmingly blunt, but others forgive you for that because it's clear you never mean to harm and there is always a bit of truth in what you say. Your cheerful enthusiasm more than compensates for your frankness—indeed, it makes you a people-magnet at any gathering.
You will be highly productive working alone—doing research, writing, or any work that requires reflection and solitude. If you need to focus on a physical or psychological concern, do so with optimism—there is a superb outlook for healing. Your creativity will also be very high. If you are working on a book, a scientific project, or a thesis, you will have success. You would also be wise to delete the parts of your life that are unfulfilling. You are older and wiser, and things formerly on your list may seem a little juvenile now. Don't worry, anything important will remain, but anything marginal will go. This year is perfect for confidential meetings with influential people, perhaps to interview for a new job or promotion or to nail a financial deal. The best for you is yet to come!
Jupiter, your ruler and the giver of gifts and luck, will travel in deep space through the constellation of Scorpio this year until November 8th, 2018. With Jupiter in your twelfth house from now on, you will be highly productive when working alone in a behind-the-scenes role. You may need to do research, writing, editing, or any work that requires reflection and solitude to get it to be as polished as you want it to be. Said another way, you will do best by being the director or screenwriter off stage, rather than the actor in the spotlight.
With Jupiter in this position, you will have much support from powerful people, but you may not know they are helping you, as key people may want to remain anonymous. If during this time you need to focus on a physical or psychological concern, do so with courage and optimism—Jupiter's move into Scorpio will give you a superb outlook for healing and recovery, and you will be able to locate distinguished, caring professionals to help you. The time will be right to do so.
During this time, your intuition and creativity will be very high, and again the universe is whispering that you should work on your craft alone, away from others, so that you can concentrate without distraction. If you are working on a book or screenplay, a scientific lab project, or a thesis, this position of Jupiter will be one of the best you could ever wish for to have outstanding success. The last time you had this influence was October 2005 to November 2006.
During the coming months, it will be important to reflect on what goals you would like to tackle next on your list. You would also be wise to delete the parts of your life that you find unfulfilling. You are older and wiser, and things formerly on your list to accomplish may seem a little juvenile now, for you are ready to tackle bigger goals.
In addition to reviewing your goals, you will also need to make room in your life for the goodies that Jupiter will bring you as options to consider. If you don't make room, you will be overloaded with present obligations, unable to take advantage of any of the new elements that Jupiter has to offer. If you don't do the weeding out process of things, people, and obligations, the universe will do it for you, and you might see elements of your life being taken out with the tide.
At first, if you see parts of your life disappearing into the ether, you may become temporarily alarmed. Yet the elements that will go will be things you have not particularly liked to begin with—the universe will only take the unproductive parts. For example, the apartment you never enjoyed may suddenly be on its way out when the landlord sells your building. The job you wished you could leave someday will suddenly disappear when your company brings in a round of layoffs. Don't worry, anything important and valuable to you will remain, but anything marginal that has outlived its future usefulness will go.
This year is perfect for confidential meetings with influential people, perhaps to interview for a new position or promotion, or to nail a key financial deal that has great profit potential. If you are working on a thesis, do a thoughtful paper and make an appointment when you are done to defend it.
You have plenty of time to get ready to make good use of the coming glorious year, when Jupiter will be in Sagittarius until December 2nd, 2019. You've waited eleven years for this amazing privilege, and you only have a little less than one more year to go before you can wear the glittering crown of celestial favorite. Your special year will be filled with travel, romance, good health, career success, opportunity, and more. Prepare, dear Sagittarius—the best for you is yet to come.
