October Horoscope for Sagittarius

(November 22nd – December 21st


Saturn has been in your sign for over two years and it has been excavating all your weakness so that you can turn them into strengths. Those lessons are finally clear and a new path has presented itself. Be ready to be inspired and most importantly have a good time. This month is about putting aside the bigger picture and enjoying the moment.

You’re the ultimate loner and yet you love people. Your ability to balance opposites is a sign of a higher mind. Always looking to experience life from a different point of view, you love to travel, experience different cultures and enjoy people from all walks of life. Amused by the rich tapestry of truths that others weave and express, you know that beyond the surface we are all driven by the same things: dreams, desires, adventure and relationships.

The Full Moon on October 5th sets off the 5th and 11th houses (pleasure and friends). No matter how much responsibility you have, it’s time to have some fun. It regenerates your spirit, it gives your mind clarity and it helps you release emotions that you hold close to your heart. On the outside you seem tough, your mind is strong and yet you act from instinct. It guides you when you find yourself at a crossroad of life. Faced with the need to make a quick decision you rely on your gut and it usually pays off.  What you may not realize is how important you are to so many people. Others depend on you for your positive point of view, your help and support and although it seems at times that you are the giver, you’re also receiving. What you share empowers you. Don’t be surprised if you’re called on to participate in an event or a project that has been created to help those in need. This is a time to serve, to reach out and participate in empowering others. When you do, good things come your way.

Jupiter, your ruler, leaves the sign of Libra on the 11th and moves into Scorpio, your spiritual house. This is a wonderful placement for Jupiter, because it builds your confidence from within. You feel stronger without knowing why. Jupiter in the 12th house is like adding an extra guardian angel to the team. If you get into trouble, Jupiter will help you solve your problems in a creative way. When the unknown participates it presents you with a solution you’d never have thought of on your own. This universal energy ignites a desire to share your experiences with others. You’re a natural teacher, and it’s important for you to help others learn. Remember, sharing is a simple way to gain strength and refine your knowledge. Give and you shall receive – but yes you have to know how to receive. A lot of Sagittarians feel uncomfortable receiving a gift of any kind. It makes them feel indebted. But it’s an important part of life and essential in the quest to achieve balance and happiness.  

The Mars Venus conjunction is happening in your 10th house of career. So don’t be surprised if you become inspired by an idea, or impassioned by a project.  The danger resides in Neptune in the 4th – is it real or just a figment of your imagination. Whatever it is, it has the power to inspire and to awaken something latent. Saturn makes a wide square to Neptune and a trine to Uranus. So it brings some reality to your idealism and helps you integrate what you want to keep.

Pluto in your 2nd house is in trine to the Venus Mars conjunction and in square to the Sun and Mercury. Pluto goes below the surface and reveals a greater truth; whatever you experience now will have a profound effect on your old beliefs. This is a good thing. Your mission is to keep your beliefs growing and expanding based on the acquisition of higher knowledge. The more wisdom you add to your life, the better your decisions and the less difficult you find life’s challenges. When fear comes up find the courage to face it – in so doing a truth reveals itself. Honor that truth because it won’t let you down.

The New Moon on the 19th is happening in your 11th house of friends. This is a great time to gather those you respect and share your ideas, feelings and yes your fears. It’s all about supporting each other. With Uranus in opposition to the Sun, Moon, Jupiter and Mercury -- change is happening and its happening fast. With Saturn in your sign for the last two years and getting ready to leave in December of this year, you have been through the mill. Whatever you have not wanted to face has been right in front of you and impossible to ignore. Everything comes from you, no one else. It’s how you see the world that creates your world. Change how you see yourself and your experiences will be different. If you believe nothing good will ever happen, then nothing good will happen. If you believe in miracles then you’ll experience miracles. You’re a lot more powerful than you realize. It all boils down to the fact that what we believe we create. Our beliefs are at the core of our choices, and the creator of our destiny. Our beliefs either give us dreams of grandeur or they keep us small and limited. And it is life experiences that have the power to teach you whatever you didn’t learn growing up. Your love of travel, adventure and differences is a gift and these things are your teacher. When you listen and learn from all that you do you’ll realize that you hold the power to be whatever it is you want to be through your beliefs.
