A grand cross is going to be stretching everyone thin as early June hits and that includes you Sagittarius rising. By June 2nd, you should begin to feel the push-pull of this planetary alignment.
Saturn, your taskmaster planet, who is now touring Sagittarius in your 1st house, will be opposing a Sun/Venus connection located in your 7th, which has everything to do with your closest partnerships be they a lover, spouse, close business associate or very dear friend.
Laying at a 90 degree angle to this axis, thus forming the cross, you also have Jupiter and the North Node of the Moon in Virgo in your 10th house opposing Neptune, Chiron and the South Node, all swimming through the Piscean waters of your 4th.
So what does this all equate to? Your 10th house Jupiter wants to confer blessings on you by expanding your knowledge, career-reach and health. What job skills can you learn to enhance your reputation in the world? Can you rearrange your schedule so you can have a better work/life balance? What does it truly mean to have abundance in your life? Some of you will decide that health is wealth and that having more time at home is actually more prosperous than climbing the social ladder. Others will continue to strive for high-profile promotions.
Since, however, there is a cross in the sky it does not mean that these gifts will fall into your lap without effort or conflict. For starters, Chiron, Neptune and the South Node of the Moon are causing a bit of a stir in the house opposing Jupiter. The 4th house represents your family, your home and your psychological underpinnings. Consider it the root cellar or basement of who you are. Consequently, your family roots and upbringing have much to do with how you feel about yourself. Are you self-confident? Do you feel safe and nurtured at home? Do you have a stable base from which you can reach out into the world to shine your light?
Recently, a lot of Sagittarians made a move so they could find a home that was more true to who they are. For some, this was an important aspect of their restructuring process, possibly due to a change in a primary relationship. For others like myself, a move was made in order to simplify life and to land in a place where I have a spiritual connection. Finding an ideal homebase can then enable you to reach for other things in your life that are important. That could include education, travel, greater health/vitality or even a spiritually-based home business.
With Saturn in Sagittarius firmly cemented into your first house, you are in the process of restructuring your life, your outward expression to the world, and your belief systems. Recently, you have been letting go of things that no longer work for you and the reason you are doing that is so you can construct a better, stronger, truer version of yourself. It’s not necessarily an easy task for the Sagittarian end of the stick loves expansion and optimism while Saturn ushers in delays, burdens and reality checks.
In this process, some of you will dump dead-end jobs. Others will choose to go back to school so you can usher in your newer, brighter self. Relationships that have stalled-out or that drag you down will get discarded. You could also find yourself focussing more on spiritually minded or alternative health endeavors.
If you have been working your tail off for years and are not being rewarded for your efforts, you will be seeking jobs that provide better balance in your life, even if you lose salary in the process. This is not a bad thing, for with Saturn in the 1st house of the body squaring up to Jupiter and Neptune, it pays to take care of your health. Hips, ankles, Achilles tendons and blood sugar levels should be something all Sag Rising folks watch closely under the current sky. Sitting has become the new smoking and with Pluto in your 2nd house of earned income, many of you have been pounding down the desk hours for years in your effort to get ahead.
To add to the complexity of this cross, you now also have the Sun and Venus in Gemini opposing your 1st house Saturn. Are those closest to you supporting you in creating your 2.0 version? In your reach for the top, have you forgotten how important your loved ones are? It’s important to find balance with this sky for there is much at stake.
You are working diligently to bring forth the new you, but do you have family support (Neptune, Chiron and the South Node in the 4th house)? What are your needs vs. the others in your life? Can you accomplish what you want in the world? Are your partnerships helping you along the way or are they throwing up constant road blocks (Jupiter square 7th house action). Do you have confidence in your skills? Maybe you are concerned about financing your home as you grow older (Saturn square Neptune)…will there be enough money? Can you have faith and trust in the Universe (Jupiter opposite Neptune) and follow your inner compass in order to creat meaningful work?
These are just a few of the questions that pop into mind under this current configuration.
On June 13th, Neptune will go retrograde in your 4th house. For some of you, this will reignite the desire to find a perfect home. For others, you are searching for inner peace and tranquility. There is a strong desire to rise above earthly reality and to find a higher vision for your life. You long for a deep emotional connection with the work you are doing in the world and if you can’t find it, you may try to create it for yourself via a home business. Improving nebulous relationships on the home front are also in order. In essence, you are seeking firm ground to stand on right now but it seems as if everything is shifting.
It’s possible that finding a sense of security for yourself right now may require that you lean more heavily on who you are on the inside (Pluto in Capricorn in the 2nd house). What skills and talents can you unearth that will bring rewards into your life, spiritual or otherwise? Get rid of that which is not working and focus on strengthening your core. You have what it takes to become the new you. What belief systems or structures do you need to change so you can emerge a butterfly?
Saturn will be squaring up to Neptune on the 17th forcing you to look these very questions. How can you bring security into your life? Do you need more financial security or would simply building a stronger home foundation do the trick? Does money bring security or is it an inner knowingness that you have the resources you need to support yourself? Would life be more comforting if you had time to develop your spirituality vs. churning the money wheel? When you leave this life, your money doesn’t get put into an etheral suitcase you get to cart along. How can you make your dream (Neptune) a reality (Saturn)?
On the 20th, a fiery full Moon in Sagittarius will be lighting up your first house of self. Where do you stand in terms of manifesting your dreams? What additional work must come to bear to make things happen. For a while now, Mars has been moving retrograde through your 1st house and that has been slowing your progress down to mud. That situation, will however soon change! On the 29th of the month expect that God of War and Passion to once again get your juices flowing!
What actions do you need to take to make your dream real? What fires up your spirit Saggis? You are the type of person that needs a purpose, something you can believe in. As you restructure your life don’t forget to listen to your soul…it is like a magnetic needle guiding your thoughts and actions.
Just at the full Moon reveals your standing, both the Sun and Venus will enter the sign of Cancer in your 8th house. This denotes protection and luck where it comes to matters of joint-finances, 401Ks, support from loved ones and other people’s money. It’s also a wonderful time to cozy up to the person you love.
The 26th should be a stellar day so mark your calendars. Pluto in Capricorn, who is now lurking in your 2nd house of values, will be shooting a lovely beam of light right at your 10th house Jupiter and North Node. Skills and talents you’ve kept under wraps could now fuel your destiny in the world. For some, a big promotion, raise or job opportunity will be headed your way. Others may elect to enhance job skills by mentoring with someone or by going back to school. New clients could also land on your doorstep because they see the truth of who you are. However it shakes down, I see good things happening on this day.
Hold onto this positive vibe, Saggis because on the 27th, Chiron, the wounded healer is going to go retrograde in your 4th house. This can churn up feelings of insecurity from the past. Have parenting issues somehow undermined your belief in yourself? Maybe you are concerned about the security of your home dwelling or psychological base. Whatever is causing this anxiety, remember that it is only welling up so you can take action and initiate the healing you need so you can move forward.
Mars, that God of War and Passion, will re-engage on the 29th, helping you to take positive action. When Mars retrogrades, everything slows down to sludge, making it extremely difficult to accomplish goals. As he fires back up, you should start feeling like a soul on fire dear Saggi’s, especially as he moves back into your sign. While he is still cavorting around in the 12th house, do your best not to get in your own way. You don’t need any help with that because hidden enemies could be doing their best to do the trick for you while Mars is in this secretive house. Harness his energy for spiritual purposes instead and you will do fine. Listening to your spirit is an important part of your restructuring process.
You know what you want out of life and this fiery planet should help direct your actions. As you restructure Saggi’s, think of yourself as a butterfly in a cocoon. You can’t rush greatness. First a proper nest or tree must be selected. Then a gossamer web must be spun so you can safely shelter yourself while beginning the process of internal restructuring. Many changes must take place as you alter old scripts, develop new strengths and talents and reorganize the guts and structures of who you are.
I expect nothing less than a magnificent butterfly to emerge when the time is right.
