Sagittarius - May 2019
Hi Sagittarius! May is a month of self-reflection for archers, as Jupiter settles into reverse gear in your sign! Everything about Jupiter is unashamedly loud and self-assured, and when he is moving forward unhindered, we have no qualms about letting the world know we’re here and we mean business! But once he turns retrograde things quieten down, and often the decisions we have made suddenly seem ill-thought out or overly extravagant. This is a time for less is more, both in relation to how you express yourself and the choices you make. Jupiter’s positive connections with Mercury and Venus during the first fortnight of the month are very fortunate for fine-tuning your creativity and working on projects which require more subtle expression of your artistic skills. His opposition with Mars after the 18th could create some relationship issues however, as you clash with a love or business partner over future plans. Someone hasn’t thought things through here, and some adjustment to your strategy will be required.
The Sun blazes a fiery trail through your work zone for the first three weeks of the month, and you will be tackling that in-tray with renewed enthusiasm and energy! It’s an excellent period for demonstrating your leadership skills, and you will probably find that colleagues are looking to you to guide them in matters involving team co-operation. The Sun’s conjunction with Mercury between the 16th and 21st marks a busy collection of days in which idea-sharing and work-related discussions seem to increase. This conjunction continues into your house of partnerships from the 22nd to 26th, hence talk of new projects may result in you pairing up with another to accomplish your tasks. The new Moon of the 4th is fabulous for taking on a new job or changing your everyday working environment around, and the Sun’s industrious trine with Saturn between the 6th and 16th could offer you a pay rise for taking on more responsibility in your current role.
Neptune presses forward on his muddled journey through your domestic zone in May, and it will be difficult to see the way clearly in family issues. It’s not the best of times for making practical decisions about your home either, especially with regard to buying and selling property; you won’t have sufficient information to make the best choice. Your sense of individuality at home also continues to feel confused, as you strive to be something more than a parent, child or partner, and to assert your identity in its own right. The last days of the month will be a mixed bag of energies as Neptune links up with Venus and Mars. A harmonious sextile with Venus after the 26th is promising for property renovations, but disagreements with your other half about relatives could plague you when Neptune locks horns with Mars from the 28th.
Chiron is currently meandering through your house of love and leisure, providing you with many poignant opportunities to reflect on those insecurities that prevent you being your true self and expressing your spontaneous, creative side. This transit is all about being you, and not feeling guilty about spending time on activities which you enjoy. Somewhere the real Sagittarius has got lost over time in considering everyone else’s needs, so it’s time now to strip it all back and remember who you are and what you really want. The full Moon of the 18th will help you, as it pushes you into some alone time to clear your head. This is also a highly psychic time for you in which your intuition will be strong. Have a fabulous month!
