Good Evening, dear Friends and Readers…Do you remember what you were doing 12 years ago, in 2007?  Jupiter takes 12 years to transit through all the signs, and now it is back in its own sign Sagittarius. Especially for people who are Sag or have natal Jupiter in Sag, whatever they focus on during this transit will grow in importance over the next 12 years. Jupiter expands whatever it touches. Every planet or aspect has both positive and negative connotations. Jupiter is considered the lucky planet; it is only negative through too much of a good thing. Here are some examples…too much booze and we get a hangover;  too much fast driving and the penalty could be a ticket; too much optimism and we find ourselves running late to everything and our budget goes into the red…you get the picture. Think about the nature of Jupiter — jovial, generous, upbeat, lucky, tolerant, able to see the future — Sag is one of the prophetic signs.

Sag, ruled by Jupiter is the natural 9th house on the wheel of the zodiac. The 9th is higher education that expands the mind, religion, metaphysics and philosophy, religious ceremonies, licensing and certification, long distance travel and foreign contacts.  Traditionally, Sag rules France, Italy, Switzerland, and Saudi Arabia. Eugene, Oregon is a Sagittarius town — I remember a previous Jupiter in Sag transit where the U of O Ducks had a stellar year:)) To my knowledge, there are no Sag states in the USA. A town’s chart is either the historical founding date, or the date of incorporation. There are astrology books that cover this.  Your local historical society is a great source of information, too.

For people with Sag rising (Ascendant), Jupiter in your 1st grows your confidence in expressing yourself out in the world. Teaching/training others, public speaking, writing — all are possibilities. Jupiter in the 1st usually expands your waistline, so watch those calories :)) It’s also a good time to become pregnant. You may find yourself reading more than usual, or even studying a foreign language. It’s a great year to visualize the kind of future you want for yourself.

Jupiter in your 2nd house will either increase your income through a raise or promotion, or it will increase your income because you decide to turn a personal interest or a hobby into a 2nd job.  This is really a fortuitous time to start your own business — even if small at first, Jupiter here at the start will help it grow in importance in your life. Just make sure you have the proper licensing or certification if it is needed. This transit is a good time to spend money to grow your skills and talents.

Jupiter in the 3rd is great for taking some kind of technical class at your local Community college. Classes that teach specific skills. Bookstores and libraries may become your new favorite hangouts. Usually this transit brings  good news through siblings and  cousins — engagements and weddings, a bigger home, new cars, etc.  It is good for buying a car as long as you check your other transits, AND avoid Mercury retro ( next one is 11-17 thru 12-6-2018. If you are already in school at a 4 year college, this transit is great for a teaching degree and in the 3rd could mean some kind of internship with the local schools K-12.  When Jupiter was in my 3rd, most of my clients that year were teachers. The 3rd also represents neighbors. Perhaps your neighborhood will improve in some way this year. MOST OF ALL, metaphysically, this year is very important to train yourself to think and speak positively. Pay attention to your inner self-talk and neutralize any negatives with positive thoughts!!

Jupiter in the 4th usually expands the family. There might be a new baby coming, as there is in my family, with Jupiter currently in my 4th. It could also symbolize a wedding, or a big family reunion, or relatives coming from a distance to visit you. If you are single, it could mean a new roommate moves in.  This is a great year to trace your roots through genealogy, interviewing the seniors in your family, doing Ancestry.com, 23 and Me, etc. Usually with this transit there is also some improvement in the physical home itself. Maybe you decide to remodel, or it could be something simple like painting one room, or adding a window, or changing the décor.  If you need to move, this next year might be the one… The 4th house is about deep emotions and unconditional love as well as family. This is a time when you can feel more comfortable with yourself and more accepting of your feeling nature. Life is not all logic and analysis.

When I had Jupiter in my 5th when I was younger, my kids won honors and awards, prizes, scholarships, etc. Young people may become more important in your life this year, whether they are your kids or someone else’s.  You might think you are teaching them new fun things, but they are probably teaching you, too :)) The 5th house is light-hearted play, romance, and creativity.  Having fun will be more important this year. Try to find joy in some activity every day for yourself. Those of you who are in the creative arts, or the entertainment industry, music, art, dance, etc….it  could be a VERY good year:))  If you are auditioning, don’t let Jupiter rev you into over-confidence.  Yes, be happy and confident, but stay in balance with yourself. Stay grounded.

Jupiter in your 6th house will improve your job conditions and usually it will bring better health. I saw a couple people get really sick when Jupiter was in their 6th, which is quite unusual, but in both cases they had really excellent care and made a good recovery. The 6th house is who you hire and who hires you. You could get a promotion, or some kind of new work on the job with more pay involved. An old boss may leave and a new one come in. Some of you could even end up with a long-distance move that comes about through your job. Even overseas, if you are so inclined. The 6th is small domestic pets. Perhaps you get a new pet this year. The 6th house rules nutrition. Try moderate amounts of new foods. Remember, Jupiter can exaggerate  whatever it touches. You don’t have to be like the guy I knew who ate nothing but carrots for 6 weeks and turned orange!!  Or the SAG lady I knew who ate almost nothing but salads and made herself really sick.  The body doesn’t fix in a day. It absorbs the love and care you give it and will respond nicely over time.

Well, I done for now…actually all this writing about food has made me hungry:))  I’ll do the other 6 houses tomorrow.  Best wishes, Jenae

SATURN IN SAGITTARIUS — PART SIX — April 27, 2015

Good morning dear Friends and Readers, I just re-read Part Five of this Saturn series and realized I certainly didn’t get back to you in February to finish this up.  My apologies.  Life just seems to be roaring along these days, it seems like a month is gone in the blink of an eye.  Anyway, here is the final post of this series…

If you have VIRGO RISING, then Saturn in Sag will be transiting through your 4th house of unconditional love, home and family, early childhood programming and heredity.  This house rules history and the ancestors.  Have you watched that TV show – “Who Do You Think You Are?”  about discovering your heredity?  Saturn in Sag here could be good for research in that area, like joining Ancestry.com, interviewing your relatives, etc.

A more traditional way of interpreting Saturn in the 4th is heavier responsibility for older relatives.  Keep an eye on them, their health and general nutritional needs, check the house for hazards, etc.  Remembering that Saturn retrogrades back into the last few degrees of Scorpio, from June 17 to September 19, 2015 — that will give you a better chance to confer with other siblings to make consensus decisions if necessary.  The well-being of your elders may be a big focus over the next few years.  I lost my Mother when Saturn was in my 4th

With a lot of people, Saturn in their 4th is going to manifest as the house is too small, the house is too dark, you don’t like who you live with, etc. etc.  If you find yourself in any of those situations, then look at Saturn as bringing up weaknesses or limitations to help you decide what you really DO want.  It would take hard work to change your lifestyle but the results would be lasting and ultimately a BIG improvement.  DO remember that if you buy a house when Saturn is in your 4th, you’d best be prepared to live there a LONG time.  Since Sag rules the hips and thighs, I would think level  floors and shallow stairs with wide treads and good railings might become more important as time goes on.  It’s not a negative to buy a home with this transit, but you’d want to have a very thorough home inspection and also be on the lookout for any outdoor problems.  Things like drainage and erosion if the ground isn’t level.  Sag is one of the legal signs, so of course a clear title would be critical.  Personally, I wouldn’t buy a home when Saturn in Scorpio squares Jupiter in Leo this summer.  Also in late July, Venus goes  retrograde from 0 degrees Virgo back to 14 degrees Leo, going direct on 9-6- 15 and then Mercury is retro 9-17 to 10-9-15.  SO… there’s about 5 days in mid June that would be OK to close and then another small window from 9-7 through 9-16 -15.  Astrology at work  :))…

Looking at Saturn on more of the emotional/spiritual level, it’s very important to be aware of negative attitudes that you may have absorbed from family without consciously thinking about it.  It will take work to turn this around and form more positive responses.  Really, with Saturn, do we have any choice?  It’s embrace the challenge and master it, or be faced with penalties and restrictions.  If you have family members  who are trying to self-medicate with alcohol and/or drugs, then Neptune transiting through Pisces will square transiting Saturn from your 7th house, adding additional pressure and possibly indicating that your family member whom  you love and want to help, is in deep denial.  Self honesty and living according to your conscience is one way to set a good example.  But you’ll need to be aware that the more you progress, the more your  loved one may not.  Love is the answer, maybe with Saturn it means tough love…..

Another possibility with this transiting square, interpreted differently, would be that you and a partner are equally committed to a large project — volunteer, or humanitarian, or social services — something that brings help to people who are suffering.  One more possibility is that instead of people, the two of you are helping animals.

If you have LIBRA RISING, then Saturn in Sag is transiting through your 3rd house for the next few years.  A sextile between the two is certainly less challenging than the square. Sextiles mean opportunities with some elbow grease required to get results.  Let’s start by defining the 3rd house.  The 3rd is brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, and cousins.  The 3rd also rules the local neighborhood, and short term travel.  The 3rd is early education, kindergarten through high school, as well as technical studies that concentrate the mind.

You may be going the extra mile to help out 3rd house relatives.  There can be a deeper communication.  This can happen both long-distance and locally, depending on where your various relatives live.

It’s a great transit to read and study and go to elderhostels or workshops.  I know one gal with this position and she lives in a large city and has found all kind of free computer classes.  That is just one example of technical studies.  Since Saturn is a symbol for the natural 10th house, the career house, you might want to check if your employer offers support for classes.  Some employers will credit you ½ the expense for work – related education.  Some will offer flex time or work from home time to make up for class time.

The way I personally like to view Saturn in the 3rd is self-examination and review of our habitual daily thought patterns — our “self talk”.  I thought  I was such a positive person until Saturn went through my 3rd in the 80’s and boy did I get a huge wake-up call!  True, it was Scorpio, but those thought patterns were deep and dark and very negative.  The only way to overcome these habits is to neutralize each fear thought as it comes to the surface by thinking its opposite.  By building this new habit, we’re not constantly RE-programming the negative.  I did pretty well until Saturn came back around again in 2012 and it was a major backslide.  I had to wonder if really, I had made any progress at all.  Fear of getting older, fear of being homeless, dreams of war, torture, and utter desolation.  The only difference is I snapped out of it quicker than last time, so I suppose that could be progress.  I worked with some very talented counsellors and friends who helped me.  I have to credit my friends for their extreme patience with me during one of the hardest ordeals in my life.  Would you want to talk to someone who didn’t have anything positive to say?  I was just a bundle of bad news, one thing after the other…it was relentless.  Saturn held my feet to the fire until the last possible moment and then the real estate situation that triggered the backslide ended.  I can look back now and see what I learned and why it was good for me.  I can even be glad it happened.  That’s the cool thing about Saturn — it’s a very definite energy and when it’s done you know it and can harvest the wisdom gained from the challenging transit.  I had a bunch of squares and one opposition.  Also, just to keep the record straight, I died in WW II in very adverse conditions.  It’s possible that Saturn was bringing up some old memories that needed release and healing.

Libra is sextile Saturn in Sag so it should be easier for you.  These two signs rule law and justice.  I would suggest that you make EVERY effort to keep your life in harmony with the law, on every level, but especially in business.  Neptune transits square Saturn at the end of 2015 from your 6th — that’s who you hire and who hires you.  Know your state regulations and licensing procedures.  Sign contracts with people if necessary but consider have a lawyer review them first.  You can also join legal protection organizations for a small fee each month.  There’s “legal zoom” and “legal shield” — maybe others but those are two that I know of…   In the old days, a handshake sufficed.  Life is a bit more complicated now…

Since the 3rd house is local travel and Saturn would imply business-related travel, maybe this is the year you should begin keeping a mileage log.  This mostly applies if you have your own business, but some organizations reimburse mileage, too.  I know people who drive seniors to medical appointments and are reimbursed via stipend — they make a little extra money and do a good deed.  Another good use of a mileage log :))…

People with Libra rising are very partnership-oriented.  Saturn in Sag in your 3rd is offering you an opportunity to be very honest with your partner AND yourself, to communicate clearly.  If you don’t have an immediate answer, then take your time and address the conversation again later.

To sum up, LIBRA RISING, it’s a great year for education of all kinds…both learning and teaching.  Don’t they say the teacher learns as much, if not more, than the student?  Try looking at Saturn as asking you to take personal responsibility for your thoughts and words, both to others  and to yourself.

If you have SCORPIO RISING, then SATURN in SAG is transiting through your 2nd house of personal resources, money, talents, and core values.  If you read some astrology books, they will say oh, Saturn in the 2nd is terrible for money.  I just don’t agree with that at all.  It’s actually one of the best times to start turning a hobby into a career.  Sure Saturn is a slow and steady energy.  You can’t expect results overnight and it’s true you’ll need to dot every “I” and cross every “t”.  If you’ve paid your dues and perfected your skills, then look for a slow and steady increase in your business.  Since Saturn is in Sag, if the rest of your chart concurs, this is an appropriate time to get licensed, bonded, insured, funded — the nuts and bolts kind of stuff to get your new business up and going.  For advertising, you’d want favorable Mercury and Jupiter transits to your chart.

Another  way to look at Saturn in your 2nd is to train yourself to manage your money and resources.  Reading Suze Orman is educational, and there are all kinds of websites that can teach you how to budget and plan for your future.  This would be a great transit to start a 529 plan — future college tuition for young children.  If you remember that Sag by nature is a warm, generous, and sometimes impulsive sign, then Saturn here is not entirely comfortable.  I think Saturn here might be suggesting to hold back from impulsive buying — I think a disciplined approach to spending will help you avoid running short when something happens and you need to gather funds.  This could be a challenge but the reward is peace of mind that you have savings for emergencies.

Saturn transiting your 2nd also means you can invest in yourself — your talents and skills will benefit from additional education.  I bought books when Saturn was in my 2nd and I never regretted it.  I bought some of the classic astrology books and a complete set of ephemeris from 1900 forward.  I continued this process as Saturn moved into my 3rd.

Core values — the principles and ethics and preferences you most believe in — Saturn in your 2nd may be suggesting it’s time for a review.  Are you living what you most believe?  Sagittarius is the sign that rules religion and philosophy.  Especially with Neptune squaring Saturn from your 5th — your children may ask you some tough questions, or even behave in a way that causes  you to question your own upbringing.  What role did religion play in your childhood?  Do you question authority or accept it, thinking that others  know more than you do?  I am somewhat rebellious, being Aquarian.  I read The Bible straight through, more than once,  and made up my own mind about what it meant.  Then I read books from other religions and looked for the similarities rather than the differences.  Personally, in my line of work, I find it appropriate to be versatile, so I can speak the language that my client is most comfortable with.  Now they have college classes that do the same — comparative religious philosophy.  Some of you with this transit are going to make a very big change in this area.  If you are a sincere seeker, you will be led in the right direction.  There’s an old Theosophical  saying — “ Seek beauty, for therein lies Eternal Truth.”

It’s kind of odd but kids that grow up in the country often move to the city, and  vice versa.  I have seen this also with religion.  Preachers’ kids can rebel and run wild, while kids with little religious education as children, often seek that spiritual commitment as adults.

To sum up, people with Saturn in their 2nd need to take their money, their talents, and their plans for their future seriously this year.  Uranus trines from your 6th, and Jupiter right now,  but not for long, trines from Leo and your 10th.  These Fire trines offer you a most wonderful opportunity to achieve career and financial goals.  Even if things seem unstable, things could work out in a fabulous way you never expected.  Stay grounded, work hard, and keep your eye on your long-term future…GOOD LUCK !!!

Well, dear Readers, that’s it for now.  The next post will be Jupiter moving into Virgo beginning 8-11-15.  My garden awaits…may you all have a joyous and abundant harvest…Blessings,   Jenae

WISH UPON A STAR — SATURN IN SAG – PART 5 – FEBRUARY  5, 2015

Good Morning dear Friends and Readers,  I hope you are all doing well.  I got so sick from drinking green smoothies — it was the detox effect but I didn’t realize it until last night.  I’m good today.  Here I mention to you all that Sag is the sign most prone to binging, and what did I do?  I took things a bit too fast and paid the price.  Lesson learned.

OK, let’s continue with Saturn in Sag through the houses…if you have GEMINI RISING, then Saturn will be in your 7th house for the next 3 years or so.  I actually have a client with this position and I’m expecting her husband to land an important contract.  He’s been working in his business with the idea of building it up so she can retire from her other job and work with him.  They have solid long-term plans so this year should bring a breakthrough.  Saturn rewards long-term thinking…

Here’s some possibilities…I have seen people both marry and/or divorce when either Saturn OR Jupiter enters their 7th house.  The 7th is marriage, partnerships, any important one on one relationship, and can also include business partners.  The 7th is showing us parts of ourselves that we don’t easily acknowledge, like it’s easier to see it coming at us from outside rather than own it.  So you’ll need to be careful if your partner is bugging you, restricting you, breaking promises to you, or is just generally emotionally unavailable.  So before you get mad or emotionally off balance from a partner’s actions, it might help to remember that whatever is bugging you, if it wasn’t a part of YOU, you wouldn’t be able to see it in HIM or HER. My dear late Father used to say “If you want to change someone else, change yourself.”  Good advice.  If you enter into a partnership thinking you are  going to change that person, that is a thinking error on your part.  The only thing we have control of is our own attitudes and responses to events.  Saturn in the 7th can manifest as you taking extra responsibility in the relationship.  Your partner can be pre-occupied, worrying about older relatives or something at work, or even gone on business trips.

If you are single and wish for a partner, then Saturn is about being very definite about what you will or won’t accept in a partner.  Search your heart and your mind and be totally honest with yourself.  Make your wish list that reflects your aspiration and the qualities of character that you seek and stick to it.  Don’t settle. Write it down.  Saturn is also about commitment and bringing things into physical manifestation, so don’t believe the astrology books that say Saturn in the 7th is loneliness  or the lack of a partner. I have seen Saturn here represent an older partner and also the kind of partner who is very reliable and steady — like fine brandy, better with age :)).

Saturn in Sag in the 7th would be good for discussing long-term plans — travel, education, etc.  The square from Neptune in the 10th might be pointing out some kind of insecurity or instability in your partner’s job, or possibly someone at work who is manipulative and has ulterior motives.  Your partner might want to change jobs or even change careers.  Discussing the pros and cons of this could be very helpful.  Above all, Sag is about being honest with each other.  Lead by example.  Of course, the flip side of all this would be a situation where you discover your partner has NOT been honest with you, and this leads to a big crisis.  Hopefully, you will see the positive side of Saturn.  Those Fire Trines help a lot right now in the area of communication.

If you have CANCER RISING, then Saturn in Sag is transiting through your 6th house of health, work and service to others.  Let’s start with health.  Sag rules the hips and thighs; Saturn rules bones, joints and teeth.  Put these together and you MUST be very careful to protect your spine if you do any heavy lifting.  Sciatic nerve inflammation is NOT fun and can take awhile to calm down.  In general, do all you can to strengthen your bones, joints, and teeth.  Saturn here is encouraging you to take responsibility to ensure your good health, plus there’s a nice ability to attract the info you most need in order to do this.  Magazine articles, radio, tv, internet — all good possibilities to research health and nutrition…

I have seen Saturn in the 6th bring extra responsibility on the job, sometimes a promotion to a supervisory position.  Or you could have a supervisor who is either a wise mentor, or the flip side — a pain in the butt.  Be careful about  verbalizing this — “Oh, my boss is such a pain in the neck, or he’s such a thorn in my side” because you really don’t want to manifest this in your physical body.  It’s OK to think it, but then you have to neutralize it right afterwards by saying to yourself, of course working for him is a shortcut to my goal, or I’m here to learn and there’s something to learn from everyone, even if it’s by negative example, or I see the behavior and I don’t like it and I’m going to make sure I don’t act that way towards other people. ETC. ETC.

The 6th house is also who we hire.  This would be a good transit to join Angie’s list to check out references BEFORE you hire someone to work on your home, your body, your teeth, etc.  You could be asked to sit on the hiring board at work to interview prospective employees.  Going out of town on business trips is another possibility but also you could be hosting out of town workers that travel  to YOUR office.  The extra work could feel heavy but there is a strong possibility that the travelers will drop  tidbits of information on you that will be so helpful that all the work was worth it :)).

To me, the glory of the 6th house is the sincere desire to help others.  When you are in the proper 6th house groove, then chores and activities of daily life become a joy to do, without lust of result, just immersing yourself in the process.  I know a woman who is a 6th house Sun.  She is very thoughtful of others in many ways.  I have watched her for years.  When someone is in a crisis, or ill, or grieving, she brings food to them.  She makes it look effortless and never seeks to call attention to herself for the kind deed.  She has some Pisces planets also in the 6th.  It’s not that she tries to be secretive, it’s just that you would never know how MUCH she does for others.  Of course spiritually, her many kindness are duly observed on the other side and I imagine that when her time comes to pass over there will be a particularly bright new star in the heavens…

Whether you’re washing the dishes, folding the laundry, cleaning the house, strive to find joy in the process.  You will be much happier.  Saturn, you must remember, brings rewards for work already accomplished.  The 6th house is the Virgo house — the harvest.  The fire trines are helpful right now from your career and personal  money houses.  Saturn square transiting Neptune in Pisces in your 9th makes you very sensitive to the ethics and beliefs of others — who you are compatible  with and who you are not.  Pay attention and don’t make excuses for those who make you uncomfortable, ie. don’t try to talk yourself out of your feelings…

If you have LEO RISING, then this is quite the year from now through August 11th when Jupiter enters Virgo.  Jupiter in the 1st brings confidence and the courage to try new things.  Relationships with the young are highlighted.  I have seen Jupiter here expand the waistline, too.  It could be a new baby rather than over-eating J.  Travel, teaching and studying, writing, sharing information with others — all these are very appropriate.  You get a trine from Uranus in Aries in your 9th which is accenting the Jupiter activities even more.  Saturn in Sag is moving through your 5th house of children, letting the child in yourself come out to play, recreation, creativity, and romance.  Travel is indicated for learning and for pleasure now, not so much for business.  Don’t be surprised if you meet kindred spirits who live at a distance from you — either because you are travelling or they travel to YOUR area.

Other possibilities are creative writing, theatre, music, and dancing.  Since children and education are so prominent for you, perhaps there will be contact with foreign students?  It’s a very nice transit to teach those younger than yourself about tolerance for diversity.  Foreign music, foreign movies, foreign dance — all these are favored.  I know a mother and daughter with prominent Fire signs and both of them are dancing right now and having a great time doing it.  I have Leo rising — I dance at home by myself after midnight when all are sleeping , with headphones and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk”.  Great exercise J…I’m also considering writing a book about palmistry but I haven’t decided for sure yet.  Meanwhile I will be teaching more this year, travelling out of town for classes in astrology and palmistry.  I share this with you just to illustrate how the transits can work.  If you teach what you love, then that joy gets communicated to others and also you get to plant seeds of education with young people.  And who knows where that might lead?

I want to share something that is very important to me.  I firmly believe that all of us have an opportunity and a spiritual obligation to plant seeds of education with the young over the next 3 years.  It’s not what you teach, it’s the passion and joy and enthusiasm that gets communicated and then they see this is possible for them, too.  At the same time, have you noticed how many terrible things are happening to children all over the world?  A friend pointed this out to me last April with the Cardinal Grand Cross and she was and is absolutely right.  WE ARE ALL EACH OTHER’S TEACHERS.  The children are trying to wake us up.  On a soul level, these children are sacrificing to teach us to value life, to make changes on this earth to protect life instead of harm it. And so far we are failing miserably.  Each of us as individuals cannot fix the earth.  But we CAN start with where we are, with ourselves, our family, then our neighborhood and our community.  Please be alert for the opportunities to plant the seeds of kindness, protection, and respect.  All children need love and encouragement…

A person with Leo rising and all the trines could just fritter their time away indulgently.  It takes a square or two in a chart to get things done.  So let’s examine transiting Neptune, currently in square to Saturn in the 5th from Pisces in the 8th house.  The 8th is shared money, power, and intimacy.  With all the joy coming through classes, lessons, and creativity — this is NOT the time to break your budget to finance so many new activities that you leave yourself short for the basic expenses.  I know people with Leo rising who have received news in the last couple of months of a loss of income, real setbacks.  If this hasn’t happened to you, great, let’s hope it doesn’t.  Partners with financial obligations to you could fail to meet them.  I could see this square as an opportunity to choose the new activities that are most important to you and put the rest on hold until financial conditions stabilize.  This is not a good transit to loan money or possessions, but it’s more than that.  You need to be on guard against deception, mistakes, outright theft, etc.  So, reconcile your bank account and be alert for errors.  Lock your purse, your car, your home.  Make a firm rule that the children cannot have their friends over unless you are home, too.  Know and understand your insurance policies.  The 8th rules insurance.  This square is in effect now and again late in the year.  Neptune moves very slowly.  The positive side of Neptune  could be you make short term sacrifices in order to complete a big creative project.  The could be about how you spend your time, not just about money.  For example, movies are a passive activity.  It’s not that movies are bad — they teach us, inspire us, amuse us, thrill, us, etc.  but too many movies can be a way of avoiding life.  So you might want to ask yourself, how are you spending your time?

Well, folks, we’ll wrap this up with Part 6 next week.  Till then, Mercury goes direct  tomorrow, TG…Have some fun and enjoy the Sun coming back…Blessings, Jenae

Hello Dear Friends and Readers, Let’s get right to it.  This post is based on YOUR Ascendant.  That way the houses are correct when reading about upcoming transits.  Sun Sign astrology is helpful but not as accurate as Natal astrology.  There are lots of sites that offer free charts.  To figure out your Ascendant, you need your TIME OF BIRTH.  Birth DATE, TIME, and PLACE are all components to cast accurate charts.

If you have SAGGITARIUS RISING (SAG Ascendant), then transiting Saturn will move into your 1st house sometime in the next three years.  The 1st house is how other people see you, how you project yourself to the outside world.  The 1st house is also a symbol for the physical body and personality.

You may adopt a  more business-like wardrobe and manner of relating to others.  Saturn, among other things, can represent career.  I have a client with this position and she is a college teacher.  You’ll remember from Parts 1 & 2 of this post that Sag is teaching, learning, philosophy/religion, foreign contacts, travel, and seeing the big picture.  So let’s play with this a moment and think up some possibilities…returning to school, or taking classes OR teaching classes is a great way to express Saturn in Sag because the overall big picture of your life and goals may include more education to stabilize your career.  You could find yourself travelling more for business purposes.  You could decide to participate in martial arts, yoga, etc.(the foreign angle of Sag) or teach yourself a new language in preparation for the trip of a lifetime.  Writing is a strong possibility as is reviewing the religion of your childhood and deciding what works for you and what doesn’t.  You could be an exchange student or host a foreign student in your home.

Saturn brings us what we have earned.  If there is a weak point, something that needs to be fixed, Saturn will show it to you.  Older people have a slightly easier time reaping the rewards of Saturn.  Saturn is bringing long-term ideas, plans, goals, and creations into manifestation, into the physical…

What IS IMPORTANT is to take yourself and your responsibilities seriously and be your own authority.  Self-respect.  Sometimes this transit will bring a period of low vitality, so taking good care of your health is also important.  You may be working hard, and taking care of your health is another aspect of being responsible for yourself.  Sag is the sign most associated with binging.  Be moderate with food and drink or expect repercussions.

The Fire Trine transits the 1st  2/3 of this year will be helpful to launching new projects, ideas, and even for starting an exercise program.  It’s good for creativity of all kinds.  The square to Neptune could be challenging since it could represent a relative with ongoing problems, physical or mental/emotional.  The challenge for you is to find the balance between being compassionate but not getting sucked in.  Another possibility is keeping an eye on the water issues connected with your home.  If you know you have drainage problems or plumbing problems, best to be pro-active and get things fixed.  Some areas have questionable water quality, so investing in a purifier can be beneficial.  If you  are someone about to purchase a home, be sure to have everything connected with water check out thoroughly BEFORE you buy.

I had a client once who I warned about  water issues at home.  She insisted that they had re-done their plumbing and all was fixed and in good repair — roof, etc.  Well, the hill behind them got too much rain and crashed down, destroying her landscaping and burying the back two rooms in mud !!  Some things  can be prevented, others not…they had good insurance.  Which reminds me, if you are in a flood zone, you might want to add flood insurance for the next couple years.  It’s a separate federal program and does not renew automatically.

CAPRICORN RISING :  Saturn is your chart ruler, so pay extra attention to your Saturn transits.  Saturn in Sag in your 12th is great for a period of inner exploration, for working alone or behind the scenes, for implementing spiritual practices into your daily life.  Your dreams can teach you much the next few years, too.  Sometimes Saturn in the 12th forces us to face our own worst fears.  Some people may feel lonely or misunderstood.  While it CAN bring on some isolation, remember this — if you like being with yourself, it’s called solitude, not loneliness.  And some people do their best work when they’re alone — a great transit for a writer…

This is a special transit for getting in touch with your  teachers and guides, both  visible and invisible.   You may need help or additional insight assessing some kind of philosophical change, to learn how to release ideas and belief systems that have been undermining you or holding you back.  There are systems of body work that help liberate the mind.  The fascia of the muscles store buried emotions and/or trauma.  There’s also books like Louise Hay’s work “You can Heal Your Life”, and one called “Feelings Buried Alive Never Die” — can’t remember the author…

The 12th house symbolizes places of refuge and confinement.  Those of you in medical or spiritual careers will be quite busy.  The Fire Trine transits could bring more contact with young people.  For example, Saturn in SAG in the 12th would be a great transit to teach Sunday School.

The challenge of Neptune in your 3rd could mean there are communication problems or medical problems with a sibling, neighbor, or cousin.  Not a great transit to buy a car.  Try to avoid this for the next couple years.  Also, pay close attention to the water systems in your car, all fluids — water pump, brake fluid, radiator, etc.  Don’t forget to use antifreeze, and in the windshield washer, too :))

If I had this transit, I would be paying particular attention to the neighborhood, too.  People move. Neighborhoods change.  Neighbors needs to look out for one another.  A great transit to start a neighborhood watch program.  Keep your car safer by locking it.  Assess your neighborhood.  Are there factors undermining its safety and security?  Take your time getting to know new neighbors, and trust your instincts.  Probably a good idea to refrain from discussing politics and religion over the next couple years…

AQUARIUS RISING:  Saturn in Sag in your 11th is very at home here, in the sense that the 11th IS the Aquarian house on the natural wheel and Sag and Aquarius are the 2 signs most tuned in to the  future.  The standard meaning of Saturn in the 11th is take a class/teach a class, but there’s more when Sag is involved.  It could be finding kindred spirits, a real sense of teamwork and brotherhood through some kind of group activities.  It could be a club, a fraternal service organization, a study group, a church group, a writers’ group, etc.  Don’t let me limit you — if you love quilting, or welding, or St. Bernards, then look for a group to join — in person or even a forum online.   ETC. ETC.

I have seen Saturn in the 11th work out 3 different ways. The person has a lot of older friends and very positive relationships with them.   The person has no time for friends either because they’re working all the time, or they are too shy to make the first move and be welcoming. The person is either elected or appointed to a position that represents a group.  So those of you with Saturn in your 11th can watch and see what happens.  Be on the lookout for those chance encounters that lead to a lifetime of friendship.

The prophetic nature of Sag combined with the intuition of Aquarius — you can know in advance what will be popular in future years, you can spot the trends.  You may understand technology better than most people, and be willing to embrace all the changes — the latest gadgets, time savers, etc.  This would be a good position for inventive people.  You could have a great idea for a new invention.  Be sure to follow the patenting process; there are different kinds of patents.  Using technology to create music is another possibility.  Technology has created music studios in peoples’ homes — amazing, the changes we have seen since the last time Saturn was in Sag.  The freedom to be creative is yours with the Fire trines this year.  Relationships both in person and at a distance should flourish.

The challenge of the Neptune square from your 2nd house is a bit of a warning not to be naïve and gullible in money matters for the next couple of years.  On the one hand, the positive side of this square is great for actually manifesting and producing your creative efforts.  Squares can be a sign of big accomplishments.  If I were you, I think I might be a bit secretive about my creative plans, and work on them without interference.  I read somewhere that talking about what we want to do dissipates the energy.  It takes time and effort to develop our skills and talents.  Call it a labor of love…

The negative potential of this square would be something like discovering your friend does not share the same ethics and/or core values, or loaning money or possessions to friends and then they either disappear or damage your stuff.  Or you could become dis-enchanted with a group that veers off in the wrong direction.  I remember one group I was in, and there was a person there who was on a guru trip.  Had to be right, had to be the boss, had to pontificate about everything — very annoying and very silly.  Every person in a  group has truth to communicate.  No one person has it all…

Well, folks, it’s dinnertime and I am starved.  Writing makes me hungry :))  More soon.  Stay safe, Jenae

Hello Dear Friends and Readers,  When I meet with my private clients, I sometimes use key words to help them understand the nature of the planets and signs. Of course they are all more than just one word, but it will help with this post to understand that Jupiter expands and Saturn contracts.  Every planet, or aspect, or transit can have both a positive and negative side.  Jupiter can be too expansionary — trouble through excess.  Saturn can get rigid instead of productive.  Saturn rules the bones, joints and teeth.  I think as we age, we need to make a conscious effort to keep the joints flexible.  That’s the physical, but it’s the same thing on the mental level — we need to make an effort to grow, learn new things, embrace new ways of looking at life.  A flexible mind keeps us young.  That’s one reason that crossword puzzles are recommended for seniors — it stimulates the mind to think in new ways.

Saturn enters Sag, the sign ruled by Jupiter in the natural zodiac.  So…we have a contracting, manifesting energy moving into an expansionary, visionary sign.  Should be interesting :))  Except for a brief retrograde back into Scorpio summer 2015, Saturn will transit through Sag for the next 3 years.

Sagittarius is the sign that rules religion and philosophy, and the overall direction and evolution of humanity.  It is one of the future-oriented signs. Sag rules foreign contacts and long distance travel, higher education, ceremonies and licenses, Jupiter, the ruler,  is “jovial”, tolerant, generous, lucky, and fond of learning new things.  Saturn is all about shoring up weaknesses to build a strong foundation, fixing problems, being productive and bringing ideas into physical  mantifestion.  Saturn is a symbol for the institutions in life — authorities — government, church, our parents when we’re young.  Saturn likes to nail things down.  I don’t think Saturn is particularly comfortable in Sag.  Jupiter expands, Saturn contracts and slows time down and forces us to be accountable.  Another keyword for Saturn is pressure.  Think about the pressure needed to create sedimentary rocks.

Saturn brings us what we have earned. You pay your ticket, hop on this planet for the ride, and like it or not, we are all interdependent and what one does affects the whole.  I like to predict economics and weather patterns based on the transits of Saturn and Jupiter. I see extremes coming…

Trying to put all this together, I get the sense that long overdue reforms will be forced on humanity because it will be seen ever more clearly that certain systems that have been in place for a long time are simply not working. A quick example.  In Africa, the ebola virus has spread partly because hundreds of years of religious tradition are in total conflict with science.  The funerals and burial traditions are actually making the virus kill more people. Any illness has a much greater capacity to spread across the globe due to foreign trade, foreign travel which have greatly accelerated over the last decade or two.  Saturn was last in Sag around 1987.  Big changes since then.

One thing that may make things easier is Saturn is trined by Jupiter in Leo briefly this   winter and spring, and trined by Uranus for the next 3 years  Fire trines express through action rather than words.

There will be a square between Neptune in Pisces and Saturn in Sag.  Squares are challenging. The psychiatric meds that are given to young people have not been fully tested on the young re: the dosages and the effects and side-effects.  The mental health problems and the lack of resources to help is placing all of us in jeopardy.  The news is sadly full of examples.

I believe this square also symbolizes the stress humanity is putting on our ocean resources.  The sea is not limitless.

The religious extremists of all kinds — the rigid thinking that propels their Machiavellian actions is Saturn in Sag.  The  opposite of Jupiter — see?  Jupiter embraces the planet as a whole, is tolerant and kind unless the negative of excess takes over and again, you have extremism.  More on this as we continue Saturn in Sag tomorrow….I just wanted to start with a bit of an overview.  Have to break this long post into sections…Stay tuned……More soon… Jenae

WISH UPON A STAR — MERCURY IN SAGITTARIUS — DECEMBER 11 to DECEMBER 31, 2012

Good Morning dear Friends and Readers,  just in time for the holiday season Mercury enters Sagittarius from December 11th  through the 31st.  After all the heaviness and problems in November we need a little light hearted fun and laughter.  Since Venus also enters Sag on the 17th, the two planets together are symbolic of laughter,  jokes, and affectionate speech.  Venus and Mercury are not conjunct but close enough to help create a jovial atmosphere.  After all, Jupiter is the natural ruler of Sag — generous, tolerant, able to see the big picture.  What does this mean for us?  We’ll take a look later at some specific transits, but let’s start with the overall tone, the flavor of the month :))…New Moon in Sag on the 13th means Sun AND Moon are in Sag, too.  I think we’ll hear about some very generous donations at that time — individuals, corporate, etc.  If you look for it, there will be some stories in the news that are very inspiring, about people helping people, reaching out to alleviate suffering.  There will be some wonderful parties; some will be kindred spirits, friends, family, etc. but there will also be some with very diverse people attending, giving you a real opportunity to learn new things and make new connections.  So don’t be shy — if something new sounds fun and interesting, you should probably step out and attend the event.  Cultivate Jupiter qualities within yourself — be friendly and welcoming to others.

Sag is a sign that has to watch going overboard. Too much of a good thing.  Drinking and driving don’t mix.  There could be a lot of DUI’s unless people who are celebrating practice some moderation.  This is less likely with all the Sag energy in the air.  I would like to caution people to avoid travelling by car at night if possible.  Stay alert, particularly around Monday the 17th as Mercury opposes Jupiter, and again from the 29th – 31st — there are some critical transits at that time — Mercury at 29 degrees Sag and a Sun-Pluto conjunction.  More about that later…

Mercury in Sag this year is a great time to take stock of your life.  Philosophical and mystical breakthroughs are possible on the spiritual level.  Pay attention to the clues for answers to your questions.  It’s not an accidental Universe — the answers can come through the media, through strangers, through something you happen to read, as well as your own dreams and flashes of insight.  You can be helpful to others needing more information, too.  There is no better sign than Mercury in Sag for gathering  information and relaying it to the people who need it.  If you have this position in your natal you could be a great spokesperson for a business or organization.  On the mundane level, this transit is just as fabulous for gathering the info and the help you need in your life right now…

Let me share a couple recent examples…I have a client with Sun in the 9th and Libra rising.  She was an art major in college but ended up in a different field.  Her art gets expression in her personal life.  At work, she was cruising toward retirement and feeling pretty confused about whether to stay or go.  She was ready to leave the job but unsure about the medical/insurance aspects of retirement.  It was starting to stress her out.  I reminded her that she always made good decisions in her life by using the Libra pattern — research, discuss the options, let it rest for awhile, revisit the issue again — a leisurely and relaxed approach.  An Aries could probably make a split second decision and never look back, but my client was Cancer and more concerned with stability and security.  Once she took the pressure off of herself to make a quick decision, a most interesting thing happened.  Another department at her job asked for her services with publishing, using some new software.  She realized she could stay for another year, have fun, learn new programs that she could use after retirement by working part-time, and give the government some time to get their ducks in order re: the Medicare snafu.  When she made the decision to be open to new information regarding her decision, everything lined up beautifully within a week.  What I think is so cute astrologically about this is she’s a 9th house Sun and that is the SAG house and rules publishing !!

The key to this process with Sag is to be OPEN to new information and not attached as to HOW the information comes to you…

Here’s my own breakthrough that happened quite recently.  I had voiced out loud on many occasions, my wish to gift my daughter with child care money.  I had been specific, too, it was 10k, most of a year’s worth.  Mainly due to Saturn having been in my 2nd house the last 3 years, it was not possible for me to do this. Here’s what happened….nothing to do with me physically, but the money for child care that my daughter needed came to her anyway !!! It came to her in 3 different ways.  Miracles, big and small, are still happening in this world on a daily basis.  My breakthrough was I realized it didn’t have to be me — I held the INTENTION in my heart and mind and my speech, and that was enough…I didn’t need to be attached as to HOW the solution would come about.  I hope you guys see this as important to you, TOO !!!  You can use your INTENTION to help the world…you can hold positive intentions as small or as big as you feel called to do…for yourself, family, friends, the world…  I would like to add, though, that since there is so much energy in Sagittarius right now, it’s very appropriate to THINK BIG :))  I’m sharing my personal breakthrough with all of you in the hope that it will help you, too…

Looking at some specific Mercury transits,  Mercury trines Uranus on the 14th.  This is great for learning new things quickly, for using technology in new ways.  You could have a lot of fun with psychic communication with your friends; try guessing who is on the phone before you look at it.  It’s good training to recognize different peoples’ energy.  There’s electricity in the air and a lot of quick mental energy today.

On the 16th/17th the Moon sextiles Mercury.  Another good period for communication and intuitive empathy for others.  It’s easier to talk about feelings with this transit, especially if you add humor into the mix.  A fun time for socializing with groups of friends.

On the 17th Mercury opposes Jupiter after dinnertime, PST.  Sometimes with this transit, people promise more than they can deliver.  Overbooking your schedule can lead to transportation problems, and everyone needs to be cautious about out of control  drivers.  Some people will tend to be quite boastful under the influence of this transit, annoying for sure, but best to take stuff you hear with a big grain of salt.  In general, people tend to be over-optimistic with this transit, so you can balance it by using some moderation today.

Those of who have read earlier posts already know that the 29th degree is a critical degree.  This month Mercury will transit the 29th degree of Sag on December 30th, the same day that the Sun is conjunct Pluto.  Note also that the Full Moon is December 27-28th Capricorn/Cancer (square Uranus).  My feeling is that the days after Christmas may not be pleasant compared to the transits during the 2 weeks before the holiday.  Party before Christmas but be cautious as we approach New Year’s Eve. Mercury at a  critical degree can mean trouble with foreign countries due to a lack of diplomacy — remember the energy of Sag is to lose their temper but let it go right away and not stay mad — there could be some kind of dispute due to hot heads taking over the microphone.  ?  As to who it could be, I have no clue.  Egypt is a mess and Syria is a disaster…maybe it’s just some new scandal involving politicians?   Long distance transportation problems, people drinking too much, people over-reacting with fear and prejudice rather than tolerance and appreciation of our unique differences — all these are possibilities.  For the most part people should be able to avoid direct consequences of these transits by staying away from crowds of people that can veer out of control.  If you are working in a public business, do your best to be polite, attentive and diplomatic.  If you are working in emergency service occupations, get ready for a busy weekend.  If you are working in security on ANY level, stay alert !  Taverns, pubs, and clubs should increase their security over the last weekend of December.  You get the picture…now we have to add Sun conjunct Pluto into the mix.  On the purely geological level, this would be symbolic of magma rising up to the surface.  There are already a number of places with active volcanos and these should continue and even new ones begin to erupt.  The earth is unsettled these  days.  The next possibility would be earthquakes from deep underground.  Capricorn rules Mexico and Central America, as well as Hawaii and Alaska, plus Texas and New Mexico are also Capricorn.

Looking at Sun-Pluto on the human level, there are a number of possibilities…a deep release and healing would be possible with health and wellness issues.  There’s probably some kind of list that comes out at the end of the year rating various businesses in categories concerning social responsibility.  Look for some surprises on the list this year.  I think we’ll see or hear quite a bit about business policies and ethics — both the positive and the negative.  This would include the sports world, too, looking at it as big business. The government is currently playing brinksmanship and this conjunction would accent coercion and manipulation as the players position themselves for personal reasons instead of seeking and finding the compromise that the citizens want.  I personally think they should not be allowed to go home for Christmas unless they get their assignment done.  They are acting like petulant children instead of adults… I should amend that statement…SOME of them are acting like children…there are a few sincere ones…very few…evidently most of them have failed to study the history of Rome…

OK, back to our lives and Sun-Pluto…some of you with Birthdays around the end of December have felt pressure to change careers or at least job conditions all year.  By now you should have solved this, or at least have taken the  first concrete steps.  Now the energy slowly begins to shift to people born in early January, Pluto on YOUR SUN is asking you to transform and revolutionize your life, your career, your health, etc.  This is a fabulous transit for all of us to focus on a list of our goals for the new year. And depending on what house is Capricorn in your natal chart, you can figure out what to start on first.  Pluto is will power, transformation and regeneration.  This is a great transit to use our will power and concentration to renew our bodies, minds, and spirits…Blessings in this Holiday Season, Jenae

WISH UPON A STAR — VENUS IN SAGITTARIUS DECEMBER 15, 2012 — JANUARY 9, 2013

OK, dear Readers and Friends, the top search term is for Venus by far.  Not surprising, since the world could use some love as the antidote to war, hate, prejudice, despair, etc.  Venus appears in the sky as either a morning star or an evening star.  What this means in peoples’ charts is Venus will either be in the same sign as the Sun, or one sign ahead, or one sign after.  Once about every two years, Venus   goes into retrograde motion for about 6 weeks.  That’s about a year away from now.

At this time Venus is travelling behind the Sun, so Venus enters Sag just before the Sun enters Capricorn…this transit is less than a month long.  Naturally, people with their Sun in late Sag or in Cap are going to be the main beneficiaries of this transit.  Venus on your Sun, or on other planets in your natal in these 2 signs, means that  life will be a little sweeter and easier for you.  People will be kinder and more cooperative and generous.  Venus works on the attraction principle so it will be easier to draw to you that which you seek.  The first step is knowing what you want.  Try making a wish list.  Write it down and place the paper where you will see it everyday.  For those of you who are seeking love, it is important to know what qualities you are seeking in a partner.  There should be 10 or 12 traits on your list.  Those of you who need more money or money to purchase items you want or need should apply the same principle — make a check to yourself and place it where you will see it a lot.  Same thing with a wish list of items you need.  One time many years ago I needed a bunch of winter clothing for the kids.  We had moved to a colder climate so it was a necessity.  I made my list. About 2 months later a check arrived  for the needed amount.  It was a retroactive pay raise from the job I had just left.  Amazing how this stuff works.  You write down what you need and release attachment as to HOW it might come about — just give it to the Universe…

If it’s artistic inspiration you need — remember Venus is love, art, beauty — then look up the name in mythology of the muse you need and visualize yourself, every day, receiving inspiration.  Think about this also just before you go to sleep each night.  And don’t be specific about where the inspiration has to come FROM, just know that it WILL.  By the way, the great artists that have passed on often function as spirit guides to artists here on earth.  They  help in response to your own focus, concentration and passion for your art.

Venus in Sag is particularly good at attracting information and knowledge for others.  Again, be alert and aware because the information you are seeking can come from your research, but ALSO from a chance encounter in a waiting room, from the TV, from a magazine that falls out of the rack at your feet, etc.  SO… don’t limit yourself.

People with late Gemini or early Cancer rising are going to have Venus transiting through their 7th house of partnerships.  This gives you an opportunity to meet someone special, to come to agreements with partners, to enjoy more love and affection.  So many people don’t seem to understand that love begins over the breakfast table.  It’s putting your hand on your loved one’s shoulder as you pour the juice or coffee or tea.  It’s making the lunches with little surprises tucked inside.  It’s taking the time to tell your sweetie you hope they have a good day before you leave the house, remembering, of course, that they have an important meeting that day and acknowledging it.

People who want more love need to start by honoring and loving themselves.  Doing this in small ways pays off big time.  The Universe  reflects back to us what is inside us.  The outer world mirrors our relationship with ourselves.  Do you have a picky, critical mate and feel stuck and unappreciated?  Maybe you need to be kinder and gentler to YOURSELF first.  Really anchor that in, how you treat yourself, affirm your self-respect and self-esteem daily, and watch the world start to reflect that back to you.  We often meet qualities in ourselves through our partners, aspects of ourselves that we  don’t acknowledge consciously.  I have watched these principles in action over many years and either the relationship will bloom, or the person will bloom and gain the courage and self-respect not to tolerate anything less than REAL love.

Venus doesn’t make too many major transits at this time.  Let’s take a look at what’s happening during this time frame…

Venus squares Neptune on December 16th.  I usually allow orb of a day on either side of the exact transit.  This square could indicate a hangover from excessive partying the night before.  We could feel foggy today, not quite with it.  Not a good day to splurge and break your budget.  Definitely a good day to visit someone who is ill or confined — to show compassion, understanding and emotional support to someone who is having a rough time or a crisis. For some people, their pets are the ones who are going to need the love..

Venus trines Uranus on Wednesday the 19th.  This one is fun for spontaneous rapport and telepathy with other people, including potential partners.  You could receive unexpected good news, information, or a gift.  Don’t be surprised if you think about someone and they call you within a few minutes.  Great for going out with friends or a group situation.

Moon in Aries trines Venus on the 20th — this one is great for going somewhere new, or trying something new.  Initiative can be rewarded.  Nice for social life, particularly with women.  Shopping looks pretty good, too.

Venus opposes Jupiter on December 22nd and 23rd, depending on your time zone.  This is a more major transit and people need to be careful about the famous Sag tendency of too much of a good thing.  Excess would be more likely here, as would people around you who think they can get something for nothing.  How might this manifest in our lives?  I get a couple of impressions here.  For one thing, the scammers and pickpockets will be out in full force.  Pay attention and don’t let your guard down if you’re out and about, last minute shopping, etc.  Donating to official charities is OK.  You can look up online to see which ones have the most reasonable admin fees.  The other impression is more about being in social situations where a part of you feels reluctant or ambivalent about the people you are with.  Maybe this is a family situation involving  in-laws or other relatives?  Rather than resenting the obligation and feeling boxed in, try to accept that you drew these people into your life for a reason and see if you can figure out what reason, what there is to learn from the situation.  If they are pushy, clueless and insensitive,  then be glad you are not !!  Overall, don’t let yourself be talked into doing anything you don’t feel good about.  If you have to say no to something, use the Sag humor to get you through it.  Be very moderate with alcohol so no one can try to take advantage of you.  No drinking and driving !! The weather can make driving more difficult — allow extra time and be a defensive driver.  Some people will be going on a special trip as a gift — they would be the ones with major trines and sextiles  from their natal to this opposition.

The Moon in Gemini opposes Venus the  day after Christmas.  It’s a busy time for most women and you may miss your female friends and also loved ones who have departed this earth.  It’s not a bad day but there seem to be a lot of distractions and less cooperation than you would like.  For male-female relationships, this opposition makes it harder to agree on social plans, especially if there are ex’s involved and step-children.  Do your best to be tolerant.

On January 5th, 2013, Venus sextiles the Moon in Libra.  This is a very nice time to meet someone new or to enjoy the love relationship you have.  Laughter and shared  social plans predominate.  A very nice weekend I would think. Since Venus is in Sag, places to meet someone new might be libraries, bookstores, while travelling, possibly at the local pub, at a church or college function,  even at the horse races or a dog show :)) — Venus in Sag rules horses and large dogs.  The main thing is to follow your own interests and have some fun.  If you don’t like dogs, then why go to a dog show in the hope of meeting someone?

Venus enters Capricorn on January 9th, technically the 8th in US time zones.  So, Venus is at 29 degrees Sag during most of that Tuesday.  Remembering that the last degree of a sign, the 29th, is a critical degree, then pay attention to the Sag tendencies of excess, speed, over-optimism.   There are no harsh or  challenging aspects to Venus at this time.  The 29th degree could just symbolize some kind of philosophical or mystical breakthrough.  It’s also a wonderful transit for writers and musicians, creative types who use words, in the sense of  wrapping up a big project and/or connecting with kindred spirits at a distance.  People who write ads or commercials should plan for a brainstorming session, too.  There could be something spectacular in the news about teachers — let’s hope it’s the positive type of news…

The next Venus post for Capricorn will have quite a lot of major transits…stay tuned…comments and suggestions are welcome…Blessings, Jenae
