DECEMBER 5, 2018

Dear Friends,

The future beckons! Look for the magic! Problems dissolve with a positive outlook.  It is time for some optimism and a plan. We have had a year of adjustment to what needed to change. We needed to get information through experience on how things need to work now. Success comes with this.  


THE SIGN SAGITTARIUS:    Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the zodiac. It is a fire sign, and it is mutable. It is said that experience breeds wisdom. This truth will be confirmed through the activities available in your Sagittarius house. Remaining open to new experiences cultivates ethical principles, along with a philosophical and open-minded outlook. An understanding of cultural differences at multi-levels is also important here. Sagittarius shows where you come to understand that you not only exist within the world, but that world can exist within you. While water signs show where you tend to live in the past, the houses ruled by the fire signs describe where you live for the future. You need to know that there is always something to look forward to. This month, the emphasis is to look toward the future, be optimistic and open. Understand people and situations that are different from you. Expand, but know your limits. The key phrase, “I UNDERSTAND”, certainly describes the true essence of Sagittarius.

At the time of this New Moon, Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius, is at home in the sign Sagittarius. Expansion and change is in the air. Sagittarius is onward and outward. Mars is in Pisces joined with Neptune. This combination will release what is within; so, you can move forward with the faith necessary to be successful. You must believe that you can do something before you can make major accomplishments.

Mars is in Pisces directing our energies in new directions. Mars and Neptune are square to Jupiter and the New Moon in Sagittarius. That square makes us restless and might make us run in too many different directions. Try to stay focused on your goal.

Venus will solve any problems in being too scattered. She is in Scorpio, and quite focused on what needs to be done.  She went retrograde in Scorpio on October 5th and went direct November 16th in Libra. Venus is now back in Scorpio, after a long retrograde process. You have had to face, and look deeper into, your situation to assess what needs to be done next.  Mercury, the Planet of communication and decisions, is also in Scorpio. This could bring up issues of attachment, financial support, and some resistance to change.

This is a symbol of the creative interest of man in the immediate set or drift of the potentialities on which he must depend. Here is his direct rehearsal of experience through an anticipation of eventualities, or an unhesitating and thoroughly practical trial and error. Implicit in the symbolism is a consistent sensitiveness to straws in the wind, and a willingness to make any amount of self-adjustment in order to capitalize on the situation of the moment. The keyword is REASSURANCE. When positive, the degree is a natural talent for determining the proper course of action or reaction in any given issue, and when negative, lack of self-stability and ingrained timidity.   “Sabian Symbols” Marc Edmund Jones
