Today the main event is the Sun’s move into the sign of Sagittarius. What’s illuminated is fiery, energetic, hopeful, and promising. The heaviness of the Scorpio season lifts. A shift involves looking forward rather than inward or underneath.
The future and something more liberating, expansive, and honest takes center-stage. Optimism, enthusiasm, what’s promising, and action-oriented can feel right.
On the downside moderation is not a strong point under this Sagittarian influence. We can be overwhelmed or overwhelming, judgmental, and preachy. Opinions can morph into proselytizing – or the insistence that everyone aligns with what you want them to believe. “Know-it-all-ness” and exaggeration skews what’s true. The facts, if inconvenient, can be readily dismissed. Falling under the spell of a “guru” or charlatan might be tempting. A cult could seem appealing.
But on the upside doors may be opening. Personal growth accelerates as travel, interactions with foreign influences, or the “unknown” is directly experienced.
We might be more interested in higher education, publishing, “the legalities” and interesting opportunities.
The Sagittarian season arrives today and leaves on December 21st.
The main events this week includes the Sun’s entry into the sign of Sagittarius today.
On Tuesday Nov. 23rd the Sagittarius Sun opposes the North Node in Gemini at 1 degree. A culmination is in play. Relationships might be approaching a turning point.
The Sun might clarify a new direction that involves innate talent and the need to build something solid and lasting for the future.
On Wednesday Mercury transits into the sign of Sagittarius. Exaggerating what’s true, being opinionated, judgmental, too honest, or “talking past the game” may be hard to control. But the truth will be slipped in there somewhere if you pay attention.
On Friday Saturn in Aquarius sextiles Chiron in Aries. An opportunity for progress is the result of courageous action in an areas where we’ve felt especially vulnerable. Healing accelerates.
Also on Friday Venus in Capricorn sextiles Mars in Scorpio. This bodes well for the emergence of relationship opportunities, harmony, and something more balanced as a result of a disciplined focus, and some deliberate, courageous action that might reflect new found faith in ourselves.

ARIES (March 21-April 21)
The new Sagittarian vibe might be felt most strongly and immediately felt by Aries. What’s illuminated and newly energized relates to optimism, greater confidence in the future, and emerging possibilities. It could feel like someone opened the window and let some fresh into what had become a claustrophobic, dark scene over the past month. It’s likely you’ve benefitted from introspection, a few important revelations, and maybe facing yourself “head-on.”. A sense of empowerment may be the result.
It might be time to consider a new direction that could involve advanced education, travel, legalities, publishing, or more contact with something foreign and the unknown. Courage is required. Venus in your 10th house of your life direction or professional status might grant you a promotion. Your ability to advance your standing may be the result of leadership talent, access to hidden information, diplomacy, and negotiation.
TAURUS (April 21-May 21)
Newly illuminated is your 8th house of financial partnerships, intimacy, and trust, is something that may involve “keeping the faith” and believing yourself or another during times of transformational change and hardship. What’s promising may be your ability to dig deeper for answers, or to feel newly liberated when it comes to going where you need to go for answers and shealing.
Tough love, self discipline, and determination where your financial future is involved might be paying off in the form of a reward. Venus is likely promoting something more honest and real within the realm of relationships. What you’re building seems likely to result in success, an accumulation of wisdom, and some lasting inner peace – the result of “holding fast” to something ever-lasting that’s stood the test of time. What’s been your most most promising course of action since since May of 2020 involving flexibility/communication and wealth building and might soon give way to a new and different focus that involves the embodiment of something enlightened, and unshakeable, and permanent.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
Your most promising path forward since May of 2020 (learning, generating ideas, being flexible, “light on your feet” and being “all things to all people” will soon give way to something more enlightened and stabilizing. A turning point may be in play. Working harder or sacrificing more might seem like a “played out dead end” because it probably is.
Newly illuminated this week is your 7th house of relationships. Something promising, energetic, expansive, and liberating could involve partnerships, your ability to connect, progress, and to move forward with renewed confidence by “joining forces with others.” On Wednesday, Mercury conjoins the Sun in your 7th house of relationships. A sense of clarity is super-charged.
CANCER (June 21-July 21)
Newly illuminated for you is your 6th house of your work life – your responsibilities, desire to improve, or to provide a service that’s useful in highly creative or regenerative ways. In some regard you may preparing something highly independent and liberation as a basis for your new “work life.” Some developments and new energy might be fueling optimism, excitement, and the means to expand. A new point of focus might be on the horizon. You might need to infuse some intuitive insight, or ancient wisdom into your future plans. Your ability to descend beneath the surface and to come up with some new understanding may be part of the emerging picture.
Saturn in Aquarius seems to suggest your main responsibility might lie in your ability to take the lead with groups in a healing capacity. Venus in Capricorn favorably aspects Mars in your 5th house of love and creativity. The timing may be right for a highly creative, more courageous approach to love and creativity. Avoid retracing your steps where love and creativity is an issue.
LEO (July 21-Aug 21)
This week the Sun moves away from a focus on the past and some heaviness involving the home, family, and an old source of security and support. What’s newly illuminated is something lighter, more creative, entertaining, generous, fun and expansive. Whatever’s exhausted you is likely to be replenished. The only caution might be overdoing it a bit. (good luck with that on Thanksgiving day).
Saturn in Aquarius in your 7th house of relationships aligns in a supportive way with Chiron, the wounded healer. It looks like there’s an opportunity to transcend an old vulnerability or source of pain for the sake of moving in a more authentic and liberating relationship direction. Relationships stand to benefit from a focus on openness, tolerance, freedom and something more independent.
VIRGO (August 21-Sep 21)
This week Virgo may be rewarded for an intense focus on communication – investigating and revealing what’s true vs. what’s simply an illusion meant to distract or undermine. Something complicated involving a sibling, a secret, or manipulative is a possibility. But this week the focus changes and expands. Home, family, roots, and the past take center stage. Something promising, expansive. enlightening, and forward thinking is newly energized. You might be more hopeful or encouraged with some renewed faith in yourself and your future.
Mercury, your chart ruler, moves into the sign of Sagittarius on Wednesday. This looks promising from the standpoint of being able to control the need to judge or to be critical – especially if that’s directed toward yourself.
Saturn and Jupiter, both in your 6th house of work and self-improvement suggest a breakthrough with regard to your work or work environment. An unusual idea that promotes your freedom and independence is worth considering.
LIBRA (September 21 – October 21)
This week you may be able to move on from something dark, intense, or complicated related to income, financial stability, or something complicated within the realm of financial partnerships. There’s cause for optimism as the Sun newly highlights your third house of communication and what’s actually true. It’s probably time to expand your contacts, to cultivate some bigger ideas, or to share more broadly what you know to be true. You’ll likely have the confidence to do it.
Venus in Capricorn in your 4th house of your home and family supportively aligns with Mars in your 2nd house of finances. Your could benefit from some hard work you’ve done to increase the value of your home or to promote something more loving and cohesive within the family.

A few new ideas might promote the feeling that your future is actually pretty open-ended and filled with promise.
The north node in your 8th house suggests a financial partnership or something more flexible that could be very liberating for you. Venus in your 3rd house of “reaching out and connecting” supportively aligns with Mars (courageous action) in your 1st house. A financial opportunity combined with action moves you in a liberating, independent direction.
SAGITTARIUS (November 21- December 21)
This week the Sun in your 12th house of endings – or something outside the realm of your conscious awareness – moves into your 1st house. This can feel like some invisible, behind the scenes heaviness or exhaustion, that’s being lifted. What’s been hard to identify is clarified. Something more optimistic, promising, and liberating begins to emerge from behind the scenes. For Sagittarians this could feel fairly dramatic and deeply personal.
It could feel like you’re able to steer your own course in the direction you want to go. The North node in Gemini in your 7th house of relationships implies that future plans might rely on a partnership and some balanced give and take. An area of old pain and vulnerability with regard to love and feeling special could benefit from an effort to free yourself of repetitive thoughts rooted in the past.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 21)
Something worrisome, dark, unfair, or corrupting within the community or group may be released. Something that made you feel ineffective or suspicious of group motives might have run it’s course.

Chiron, the wounded healer sextiles Saturn in your 2nd house of money and wealth building. An opportunity to heal from some past wounding that left you hobbled where your security is a concern is the emerging opportunity.
AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 21)
This week something oppressive, heavy, or worrisome with regard to your role in the world, life direction, or current level of satisfaction diminishes in favor of a more optimistic, promising, and hopeful outlook. It may no longer feel natural to assume that you’re stuck or chronically unable to move in the direction of something more expansive and liberating.
Old dreams, hopes, and wishes could be revived in a way that provides a new direction. Saturn in your 1st house sextiles Chiron, the wounded healer, in your 3rd house of communication, siblings, and connecting with what’s true for you. Saturn in Aquarius requires that you stick with a style and approach that’s authentic for you – regardless of tradition or how much you’ll hurt others in the process by going your own way, and staying true to yourself. Essentially this is not optional for you.
PISCES (February 21 – March 21)
A future outlook that felt confining, disheartening, or disappointing will likely disappear as you begin to feel more confident of your ability to succeed and to reach the goals you’ve set for yourself. Something you’ve given up on may be worth pursuing – but not in the usual ways we think of a pursuit. Pisces is good at magically “willing into being” what they desire. Saturn in your 12th house suggests a fortunate influence from behind the scenes, on a soulful level, to attract what (or who) you want.
Neptune in your 1st house enhances your magical powers. Jupiter in your 12th house suggest good fortune and good results.
