  • How to Treat your Sagittarius

    Your happy Sag is a straight shooter, a wise one, a seer who is always ready and able to offer up plans and ideas. She knows how to find the answers, and doesn't hesitate to do so. A natural fortune-teller, she has an innate sense of the future. You can tap into her foreshadowing ability and get helpful hints about how to proceed in life. And she is always honest - even if it is overstated a bit!

    Your jovial Sagi is almost always a happy camper. He sees the world through lovely rose colored glasses. He barely recognizes unhappiness. Your Sagi is a wonderful companion because his joy for life is so lofty and grand that it is truly contagious.

    While all this is a tremendous advantage, you may come to find that sometimes your Sagi is a lonely, sad clown. The problem is - he may have difficulty knowing whether or not he is truly happy inside! The jollity of your Sagi is usually completely genuine, but he may sometimes feel embarrassed to say if he is actually depressed.

    It's not that your Sagi is hiding her feelings, it's just that she is always looking forward to something better. Her glowing vision for the future overshadows the present - no matter how gloomy. If you want to make Sagi truly happy, you must be able to see through the glowing exterior into the real, sensitive person inside. Try to see any unhappiness, and help your Sagi recognize and do something about it!

    So, assuming your Sagi is not a sad, lonely clown, how do you make him happy when he already appears to be just fine and dandy? How can you create an impact in such a person's life? How can make your Sagi - who always has something to look forward to - look forward to being with YOU? Well, the answer is very simple. All he needs is appreciation, gratitude and a healthy dose of freedom. Listen to him spout philosophy. Praise him for his insights into the future. Allow her to travel endlessly, read, absorb knowledge and make more of her mind. Ignore the tripping over words and objects! Really - she is merely blinded by her mental far-sightedness!!

    Laugh with sincerity - never with derision. Have fun with her. Make him the object of your admiration. Think of your Sagi as a good luck charm, a shaman, a seer and a jester. Keep her wisdom in your pocket like a talisman, and wear his heart on your sleeve - but never restrict your Sagi's freedom. Take all of the above into serious consideration (don't laugh!), and you will be rewarded with a very wise and fortunate companion in the grand adventure of life, an energetic, enthusiastic lover and a fun-loving, true-hearted friend.

    How to Treat your Capricorn
    Your Capricorn is so much more than a mischievous mountain goat. This playful kid can merrily prance to the top of any hill. Life is a cherished challenge for your Capricorn, who is always prepared for the long haul. His tremendous patience and perseverance is only possible because he also knows how to enjoy life. Picture impish Pan with his alluring flute. To Capricorn, it is all one, great long game.

    If you have the good luck to have captured capricious Capi, rest assured that you will never go without. Your Capricorn never gives up - your life will only get better and better. Practical, persevering optimism is built into your Capricorn, along with a strong sense of responsibility and keen powers of observation. Capi goes for the ultimate in personal achievement.... and you are in for one long goat-ride! And I mean that in every sense of the word!

    How can you show proper appreciation for your hooved companion? Well, first off, remember that Capricorn is a leader. Either go with the program, or come up with something better. Second, your Capi needs to feel needed. Tell him how successful he is and recognize his monumental efforts. Take notice of every step up the ladder. Third - make your Capricorn take time out for fun and adventure. She might only see in one direction - up! Encourage her to turn her head around from time to time and look at the scenery. Finally, take your Capi's love completely seriously. He might be having a wonderful time, but when it comes to love - there's no funnin'. Capi plays completely for keeps!

    Don't be put off if she shows a serious demeanor in public - that's just her way of assuring a spotless reputation. Be his partner in the business of life. Recognize the playfulness in your Capi's heart. Remember that you are blessed with a companion who will get younger and younger with time, and who willl give you many years of devoted attention to your needs.....and good, long lovin', kidding...

    Temperance in the Tarot

    Temperance is associated with the Sign Sagittarius

    ~ Grace ~
    To Everything - turn, turn, turn, There is a Season Can you tell I love this deck?? This woman is the epitomy of grace and style. She is Venus, welcoming you into her garden. Already prepared to give you whatever you need, she will not disappoint you! Imagine yourself at a party. Your very gracious hostess offers you the comforts of her home and delicious food. She offends no one, smoothes over misunderstandings between guests, pays sincere, heartfelt compliments, and basically does her best to make sure that everything goes well, and nobody leaves unhappy. She is Temperance.

    Picture yourself once again at the same party. You spy some beautiful person you'd just love to take home with you. Or maybe you smell something delicious in the kitchen that hasn't been served yet. Do you grab what you want and run with it? If you're the kind who strives to maintain good relationships and the love and respect of your friends, you act with class and wait for the perfect moment. Realizing that everything comes in its own time, you relax, enjoy the company, and behave just as graciously as your hostess. Temperance is acutely aware of the passage of time, and the affect her actions through time have on all areas of life. Her broad vision gives her the clarity she needs to behave with great care and respect at every moment. Temperance also means moderation. This archetype teaches us how to walk the middle road, the path of least resistance, and to be in the here and now...observing the flow and the best possible role for each of us within that flow.

    In another sense, Temperance refers to toughening, as in tempered steel - through many rounds of heating and cooling. This one has seen much, and walked down many roads - she is able to proceed with an objective awareness about the feelings and needs of others.

    This card is most of all about patience and tact. Without social graces - respect for others (and ourselves!) and sensitivity about how and when to approach things - we are nothing but base creatures bent on fulfilling our own needs, or drones waiting for someone to tell us what to do. Fortunately, most of us have some sense of timing that keeps us within the circle of social acceptance.

    When this card shows up, what may required is a thorough look ahead and backward, and a clear assessment of the current situation before taking some action right now... and what is certainly required, is patience. Often, what this card means is - yes, this will come about - in time!

    The Outer Planets - Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and the Lunar Nodes
    ~^. .^~

    Uranus in Pisces! ... Uranus will stay in the Sign of the Fish 'til 2011! Spiritual Revolution you say?? Yes, that would describe it well. What can we expect with Uranus in Pisces? Perhaps our ideas about death, sacrifice, the fantastic and impossible, transcendence and service to humanity will take some dramatic and innovative turns. We can hope that humanitarianism will take on new meaning and purpose, and that service to others may become a more integral part of our social order. With this placement, Uranus can become quite reclusive or fanatical. Scientists who may have been hiding out for years in research can bring new and surprising inventions and discoveries into our midst, and Political Messiahs may come out of the woodwork. With Uranus and Neptune in mutual reception - they will rely upon each other more than usual, and herald perhaps a renewed and revolutionary (Uranus) vision for humanity (Neptune) The cost may be a certain amount of turmoil and confusion regarding just where we are going for humanity, and will probably not be without conflict.

    Neptune in Aquarius (til 2012) is helping to set our expressions of love and creativity into positive, innovative motion. A change in the prevailing style in movies, fashion and art will be seen in the months and years to come - probably bringing much more in the realm of the unusual, shocking, rebellious, and inter-cultural.

    Pluto in Sagittarius speaks of honesty. While Pluto remains here (till 2008), we are all challenged to be true to ourselves and others, and to accept and nurture the rich diversity of humanity and our animal companions on this earth. The world is our family, and those who are not willing to find, or at least look for the wisdom of the ages - reflected in many ways through many religions, traditions and philosophies - will surely suffer a crisis of faith.

    The powerful Neptune/Pluto septile, exact on Dec 1, 2006 and Feb. 21, 2007 will last (going in and out of close orb) into 2011! For those of us who are very creative, tremendous inspiration can bring influential, explosive, mind-blowing creations. In love - the potential for making inspired changes is heightened - yet there also exists the possibility of getting lost in confusion. Avoid falling into a pit of despair, or indulging in self-destructive activities. Getting nowhere fast? Look for Creative and Healthy, Inspired, Loving outlets to save your skin! Get involved in helping others.... this is especially important now! Neptune/Pluto can bring a fanaticism wthat has not been seen since the last such aspect at the beginning of WWII. Yet - this aspect is also very positive for creating lasting, humanitarian changes throughout the world.

    The North and South Nodes are now on the Pisces/Virgo axis ('til 12/19/07). This node placement brings a greater sense of right and wrong with the world and humanity on a grand scale, with issues of escape, sacrifice, anhilation, and merging spiritually with others coming to the fore karmically and within our relationships. Christianity and religion in general may be at issue perhaps even more than usual.

    Let us hope that, regardless of one's religious allegiance, all who feel true love in their hearts will continue to spread this light of love, pray for our planet, and find a way to peace - however that may be.

    Chiron in Aquarius... This archetype of human compassion will be passing nonstop through Aquarius from January 06 til Feb. 2011, bringing a period of higher inspiration in the realm of healing. We may look forward to greater cooperation worldwide in the healing sciences, and perhaps going back to tradition - those time honored ways that our ancestors enjoyed and practiced in harmony with nature. Perhaps we may find more and more "health" foods (ie unaltered and unprocessed) on our grocery shelves, greater acceptance of mind-body healing approaches, and some brave new ideas to surface, too.

    Mewsings from Venus & Mars... December 2007

    Mars is in Cancer from 9/28 to 12/31 (retrograde 11/15 to 1/30/08, and in Gemini 1/1 until 3/5/08 when the red planet is back again in Cancer. This placement for Mars brings safety consciousness to our fighting instinct, and quite possibly strong nationalistic energy. We are in "home protection" mode, and may need to beware of creating a sense of isolation or mistrust. However, if the focus is turned toward non-violent fighting (Mars) for the protection of our Mother (Cancer/Moon) earth, as well as for our families and communities - all will be well!

    Venus in Libra11/9 to 12/5 is loving and charming. This Libra brings beauty and harmony to all things, and females especially are more likely to crave social interaction, and fine places and things to make life more pleasing!

    Venus in Scorpio12/5 to 12/30 is intense, sensual, passionate, and wary of all rivals. Make sure she has your full attention, and above all - treat her like the loyal companion she strives to be!

    The first 2 weeks in December, Venus in Libra/Scorpio is trine Mars in Cancer, sextile Jupiter/Pluto and Mars and Venus are both sextile Saturn. Jupiter septiles Neptune. bringing a terrific time to honestly explore and reveal our true feelings in relationships. Dramatic changes can be made successfully, but only if one is willing to remove every mask, and show every color.

    During the third week in December, Venus squares Neptune, trines Uranus, and octiles Pluto/Jupiter. This can be a time for actively seeking change in relationships, and may perhaps bring some irritation, disillusionment and confusion. I advise thinking carefully before acting, and using one's energy for creative pursuits.

    during the fourth week, Mars opposes Jupiter, Venus quintiles Mars & Chiron, and Jupiter quintiles Uranus Mars is nearing opposition with Pluto as well. Great changes may take place very quckly and with trememdous energy. These changes can certainly be for the good. It will be important to be very aware of the motives of others, and help steer people in your circle in the right direction!

    ~ The Big Guys ~
    Jupiter in Sagittarius til 12/18/07 is in his glory, bringing tremendous energy for truth, liberty, justice, expansion, increase, humor, intelligence and broad-mindedness. Jupiter conjuncts Pluto at 28 deg. Sag. early to mid Dec. '07 (exact 12/12/07), which I believe will trigger great spiritual/moral outspokenness and fiery debate, as well as increased activity in research and discovery. I see this as a sort of "last chance" to speak your truth - then make your peace. As long as finding common moral ground is the goal, all will be well. Pompous self-righteousness won't further any goals, but there may be some of that. Venus will follow (conjuncting Pluto) in Jan. 08 with Mars opposite - another opportunity for mending broken relationships.

    Jupiter in Capricorn til 1/5/09 will help set the stage for societal changes, and perhaps help to broaden the horizons of our policy makers and power brokers. This can be a year of making great leaps forward, taking chances, and making new ways the status quo.

    Saturn in Virgo 'til July 21, 2010 brings our focus to the things of the earth.. the cleanliness and purity of our physical environment. These coming years can bring a stronger sense of purpose and responsibility within our social institutions, government and authority figures regarding the sanctity and protection of our mother earth. A wonderful time this can be!! Let's feel our earth permeating society, and becoming the central focus for all we do!
