Summary: Saturn in your sign works with Jupiter and Uranus to bring benefits to romance, children, creativity, friendship, and long-term goals. A major emphasis on travel, education, or spirituality, with two eclipses and the movement of the fated North Node to this sector.
Extended Sagittarius 2017 Horoscope: What a year you’ve had my archer warrior friend- congratulations on making it through the fire!
2016 seems to have brought big changes your way, as Saturn, Neptune, the North Node, and Jupiter battled it out in your identity, home, and career sectors.
While it seems you were under some pressure last year, hopefully you made the necessary changes so that you can live the life you were destined to lead. Saturn transits to our Suns (like you have right now) are not easy, but they can transform your life in a way that just about no other transit can!
With Saturn still making his way through your sign throughout 2017, you will still be undergoing this major transformation (especially for later born Sagittarians). However, this year, Saturn will be complemented with some truly harmonious aspects, instead of the jarring ones of 2016.
In fact, Saturn will work with your ruler, good-luck Jupiter, throughout the year to help you achieve your highest dreams!
Jupiter is currently transiting your 11th house of hopes and dreams- a sector that also rules group collaborations, friendships, social events, long-term plans, technology, and humanitarian efforts. These two planets will especially complement one another in January and late August, so look to these months to throw an event, launch an app, or make major moves on some other kind of long-term goal.
Adding to your good fortune, Saturn will also be working with another change-making planet, Uranus, in your fun and love sector, suggesting big things to come in your romantic life. You might even discover a pregnancy this year or have a “baby” of another kind- a creative or visionary project or work of art. Look to May and November to make your moves!
Try not to take on too much however, as you could feel torn between these two worlds this year- romance vs. friendship, group goals vs. personal ones- especially in February, when Mars will conjunct surprising Uranus in your love house and the pair will oppose Jupiter in your friendship and goals sector.
In fact, it seems a romance, leisure event, creative project, or child could even prove expensive or difficult in March or early August, when mighty Jupiter (again, that’s your ruler) in your love house angers transformational Pluto in your salary zone.
July is another expensive month, when Uranus in your love house gets caught in an angry blast from Mars in your other financial zone.
Eclipses this year fall in your travel and communication houses, and the good news is that these are pretty friendly eclipses this year!
February 10th sees a lunar eclipse in your travel sector making beautiful music with three major heavy hitting planets- Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus. This eclipse could see you take a fun vacation- either with a romantic interest or a group of friends (or both?). It’s also possible you complete a visionary or creative project at this time or achieve an educational goal.
The solar eclipse on August 21st in this same sector of travel and education has similarly gorgeous aspects, as it will not only invoke Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, but also bring Mars and the fated North Node to the party. Again it seems that travel or foreign entities will be involved, or perhaps schooling or spirituality.
This focus on travel, education, and spirituality is further amplified by the movement of the fated North Node into this sector in late April. The North Node brings expansion and benefits to whatever area of life she transits, so it’s possible that you move overseas this year or go back to school. Lucky for you, the 9th house is the house your sign rules, so I think this will be a very wonderful time for you!
Look to June, when the North Node will reach out happily to Venus and Uranus in your love and children sector, blessing romance, pregnancy, creativity, and travel.
September is another gorgeous North Node month, as she’ll send smooches to both Saturn in your sign and Jupiter (your ruler!) in your goals zone.
Now going back to the eclipses- August 7th sees another eclipse- this time lunar- fall in your communication sector, and again, this eclipse will reach out happily to Jupiter and Saturn in your love and identity zones. Remember, lunar eclipses tend to bring situations to a completion, and solar eclipses see us launch new chapters and initiatives. It’s possible that you go on a short trip at this time, or that you hear news about a sibling, vehicle, contract, or writing project.
This year also sees the final eclipse of the Pisces/Virgo series, and this eclipse will be a solar eclipse occurring in your home zone on February 26th. The eclipse will conjunct Neptune, and sextile Pluto in your salary house, suggesting that you could move, sell your home, or get a job working from home. However, the eclipse will also opppose the North Node in your career sector, suggesting that whatever comes up could be at odds with your job situation.
Look for a housing matter to come to a head around September 6th, when there’s a corresponding full moon in Pisces.
The end of the year sees the tide shift to other areas of life, as Jupiter moves into your 12th house of closure in November, and Saturn moves into your salary zone in December.
Jupiter in the 12th house is a bit anticlimactic, however, having the planet of good luck in your secrets sector will offer you good protection for the year ahead (2018). That will be a time of purging and closure, so that you can welcome Jupiter into your sign of Sagittarius in late 2018.
December is extra lovely for Jupiter’s charm, as he makes a loving trine with Neptune in your home zone.
Mercury retrogrades this year from
April 9th- May 3rd (in Taurus/Aries, your houses of work, health, children, and love),
August 12- Sept 5th (in Virgo, your career house), and
December 3rd- 22nd (Sagittarius, your identity sector)
Since Mercury rules both your career sector and your relationship zone, you may rethink and review these areas of life during those times as well.
Venus retrogrades from
March 4th-April 15th (in Aries/Pisces- your love/children and home houses)
Venus rules both your work/health sector and your goals house.
