Your year gets off to an eventful start, Sagittarius, with potential drama in both your love life and your financial life. Mars in your sign increases passion and drive, but it also brings anger and an urge to take risks - be careful! The Lunar Eclipse on January 10 highlights a secretive love affair or a serious financial issue - or both! Two days later, the Saturn-Pluto conjunction occurs in your money and values zone, bringing conflict and power struggles over either money or love.
You'll want to act quickly to find a solution, but impulsiveness is not the answer. Instead, try to stay calm and to bide your time. On January 13, Venus moves into your family zone, easing any tensions at home and creating a more stable atmosphere, which is helpful if you need to explain something difficult to a spouse. You'll be further helped by the arrival of Mercury in your communication zone on January 16 - but avoid the temptation to be dishonest.
Even little white lies may come back to haunt you, so honesty is key here. The New Moon falls in your communication zone on January 24, so you have a chance to take back control of the situation and to garner support from those around you if you need it. Tricky Neptune aspects on the 27 and 28, however, remind you how critically important the truth is. If you've fibbed, things may start to unravel now.
2019 is largely a happy-go-lucky year for you, Sagittarius. Your ruling planet, bountiful Jupiter, is in your own sign for most of the year, only leaving in early December to help bring abundance into your money zone. With pleasant developments in your love life and interesting times ahead at work, this could well be a red-letter year. A Full Moon in mid-January promises recognition for you, so expect plenty of praise and attention right from the start of the year.
At times, however, the year may seem just a little bit too full-on. Moments in January, June and September could be especially exhausting, when Jupiter squares up to Neptune. In these months, try to make sure that your home is a welcoming place to be. Create your own sacred space and retreat into meditation or a peaceful sanctuary. Family demands are likely to grow during these months, but you’ll also find loved ones willing to help you relax and chill out- finding the right balance is key.
In July, your beliefs or philosophies may be challenged. You talk a good talk, but are you walking the walk? With Mercury retrograde in your philosophy zone in July, be prepared to take practical steps to back up your inner convictions. Towards the end of November, a New Moon in your own sign signals that you’re ready to emerge from these challenges, probably with a new and more mature understanding of the world and your place in it.
Fiery Mars starts the year in your passion zone and Venus arrives in Sagittarius in early January, so there should be plenty of memories to make. A gorgeous conjunction between Venus and your ruler Jupiter in late January could mark a significant moment – if you’re single, you may find yourself inexplicably drawn towards someone. There could be some karmic links at play here, as you encounter someone from your soul group and from a pervious lifetime. Fascinating stuff!
Be aware that too much of a good thing can cause its own problems, however. A highly volatile Mars-Uranus conjunction in your passion zone in mid-February suggests a relationship which may get out of hand. Once warrior-planet Mars shifts into your romance zone at the end of March, anger may replace passion for a while.
Things should calm down over the northern hemisphere’s summer, however, with gentle Venus soothing your love zone in June and a New Moon in this same zone bringing the promise of a fresh start. In early July, a Solar Eclipse occurs in your intimacy zone – something which was previously secret may come to light, much to your shock. However, this sudden blast of honesty is a good thing in the long run, as it means you can stop hiding. Welcome this Eclipse with open arms and open your heart to its lessons. In early December, a Full Moon in your love zone highlights how far your partnership has come this year and helps you to consolidate your love ahead of 2020.
A Solar Eclipse in your money zone in early January may not be the ideal way to start a new year, but any financial shocks will be short-lived. Use the New Moon in early February to get yourself back on track, perhaps with a new side hustle or a different approach to upping your income. Luxury-loving Venus changes signs in early March, so the indications are there that you’ll have cash to spare very soon.
Also, in early March, rebel planet Uranus arrives in your day to day work zone. This lends an air of unpredictability to your work throughout the rest of the year – expect plenty of changes! Some of these changes will not be much fun, but you will also have the chance to make your own changes and to take back control of your career. In July, a tense square between Mars and Uranus suggest that travel to and from work becomes an issue- or perhaps you will need to move in order to pursue your career. This is an inconvenience to be sure, but again, behind the disruption you can find opportunities.
In early December, bountiful Jupiter arrives in your money zone – just in time for the holiday season! You can certainly expect an increase in income around that time, but also a shift in your own attitude towards abundance and finance. The Solar Eclipse in late December focuses on what you have versus what you want versus what you need – and your own philosophy on this is indeed changing.
A major theme through 2020 is likely to be your changing relationship with money, Sagittarius. The biggest astrological event of the year, the unusual Saturn-Pluto conjunction, takes place January 12 in your money zone, and the effects of this will be felt on and off throughout the rest of 2020. When Saturn and Pluto join forces, the resulting energy is compulsive, protesting and somewhat forced. The changes which come to your finances this year are unlikely to be welcome, at least initially. Bear in mind, however, that all of these changes will be for the good in the long run – but it may not seem that way when you’re caught in the maelstrom.
The year begins with a Lunar Eclipse in your resources zone, swiftly followed days later by the exact Saturn-Pluto conjunction, so straight away you’re likely to find that a debt must be repaid or that a source of funding is cut off. January and February may also bring astrological tumult in your love life, Sagittarius, with passionate Mars stirring up intrigue, Venus shifting into your risk zone in February and a Mercury Retrograde in your family zone suggesting that it’s hard to tell the truth to your loved ones about what exactly may be going on.
During the early months of the year, potential conflict in love continues. Although Venus arrives in your love zone in April, offering some calmer waters, the romance planet soon turns Retrograde in May, leaving you questioning exactly where your relationship may be heading. At the same time, Mars arrives in your family zone, so tensions at home may be on the rise. This is likely to come to a head in June, when a Lunar Eclipse in your own sign is followed by a Solar Eclipse in your passion zone. However, Mars’ arrival in your fun zone helps you to re-find the joy and the magic which brought you and your lover together. If you’re single, Sagittarius, the best time for dating is from June onwards, when your happy-go-lucky nature will prove very attractive.
During July, looming financial issues rear up again, as the Sun makes a series of tense oppositions to the Saturn-Pluto conjunction. Credit may be refused, debts are being chased, and you may not know where your next penny is coming from. The key is to shift your attitude toward money. Instead of worrying about what you haven’t got, be grateful for what you have. In August, once Venus arrives in your resource zone, you’ll be able to rethink what you value, and you’ll figure out that some things in life matter far more than money.
In September, Mars Retrogrades in your fun zone, so be careful not to take leisure pursuits to extremes – stay away from dangerous sports, for instance! Venus moves into your travel zone, so the astrology this month is ideal for a romantic getaway. The last quarter of the year sees a focus on reflection, as you get to grips with a difficult previous nine months. Mercury Retrograde in your privacy zone will help with this. A Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius in December is a sign of a fresh start, and a new understanding as you move into 2021.
The first six months of 2020 could be tricky for an established relationship, Sagittarius with indications of potential illicit love affairs or something underhand going on. January’s Lunar Eclipse in your passion zone is the first hint of something hidden, and with Mars in your zodiac sign, there may be a highly intense and passionate, but ultimately risky, encounter. As much as you may want to be honest about something, Mercury’s Retrograde period in February falls in your family zone, and you may decide that silence is the best policy, even as Venus moves into your risk zone and ups the stakes still further.
Of course, you may not be doing anything illicit at all – but the planetary activity suggests that either the temptation (for you) or the suspicion (toward your partner) will be an issue. Take the opportunity in April to try to smooth things over a little, as Venus arrives in your love zone. This is important, because in May, Venus turns Retrograde, leaving words unspoken and feelings unexplored. At the same time, aggressive Mars shifts into your family zone, so any secrets could prove damaging.
Two eclipses in June signal a potential turning point in a relationship: The Lunar Eclipse is in your astrological sign, and deals with asserting your independence and identity, while the Solar Eclipse is in your passion zone – passion may be blinding you to reality. However, once Mars shifts into your dating and pleasure zone – where it’s set to stay for the rest of the year – you’ll start to breathe a sigh of relief. If you want to salvage an existing relationship, you can do so by rediscovering how you fell in love in the first place. If you don’t want to, or if you’re single, the astrology from this point onwards signifies plenty of potential for new love entering your life.
The middle part of the year is mostly dominated by financial concerns, but September finds Mars turning Retrograde in your dating zone. If you’re looking for love try not to look too hard – over eagerness will come across as desperation, which is so not a good look, Sagittarius! In an established relationship, September looks like a good time for a mini honeymoon or a romantic vacation, with Venus shifting into your travel zone.
During November, a Lunar Eclipse occurs in your love zone, and you may find this illuminating – after all you’ve been through this year, that could be the moment where you realize how much you’re in love after all. With Venus moving into your spiritual zone, this would be a good time to explore karmic and past life links with your lover.
The year draws to a close with a Solar Eclipse in your zodiac sign in December, which is a very positive sign of a brand-new beginning, in love as in other areas of life. You’re much clearer about who you are now, and with Venus moving into your own sign too, you’re very clear indeed about what you want from a lover and what you can offer in return.
The major Saturn-Pluto conjunction on January 12 aims to get you to rethink your relationship with money, Sagittarius. Expect to find yourself challenged financially, but this challenge should lead to a new understanding about how much money you do and don’t need, and how much intangible value other things in your life have.
You can expect the financial high jinks to get underway promptly, with a Lunar Eclipse in your resource zone in January, followed immediately by the Saturn-Pluto conjunction. A sudden unexpected bill could cause problems, or perhaps you’ve run out of time to pay off a debt. This is a highly stressful moment, Sagittarius, but it’s important to keep calm and get professional advice about your options. With Mars in your own sign, you’re driven to find a solution, which is great – but don’t overcomplicate it.
During February, Mars moves into your money zone, so you should find it relatively easy to increase your income to compensate for any problems – perhaps through lucrative side hustles, overtime or even taking another job. You have energy aplenty and you’re focusing on making cash – but during March, Mars conjuncts the Saturn-Pluto linkup, potentially with explosive results. Don’t allow your frustration to lead you into drastic action.
During April and May, first Pluto and then Jupiter turn Retrograde in your money zone, and this is when you’ll start to think about your finances in a more abstract way. Shift away from trying to get as much income as possible and think more about cutting back on needless expense or downsizing. In June, a Lunar Eclipse in your sign, and a Solar Eclipse in your resources zone will help you undertake a shift in lifestyle with less emphasis on materialism and consumerism. Mars arrives in your creativity zone in June and stays there for the rest of the year, so if you’ve always wanted to launch a creative business but have held back for fear of losing money, now is your chance to reassess your priorities and go for it.
During July, a series of oppositions from the Sun to the Saturn-Pluto conjunction make for difficult financial news, and you may struggle to make ends meet. However, astrology suggests that once Venus moves into your resources zone in August, you’ll have successfully taken a different approach and attitude toward money which will help a great deal. Avoid taking financial risks during August, though, as Mars is in square aspect to Saturn and Pluto. During the Mars Retrograde period starting in early September, you’ll learn that what you thought was a risk – taking a leap into a new business, for example – turns out to be much less perilous than keeping your old mindset would have been.
October and November are ambitious months in your career, Sagittarius, and you should be able to make progress toward an ultimate goal. And December’s Solar Eclipse in your own sign really sends you down a new road. With Jupiter arriving in your communication zone, your talents in sales, marketing, persuasion and PR could prove very lucrative for a new direction in 2021.
