Welcome to Sagittarius Season… today, the Sun moves into the sign of the intrepid explorer. Aim your arrow high, my friends. There are philosophies to be developed and wisdoms to be discovered. We must form our own opinions. As the third fire sign, Sagittarius wants to know— “What is this spark of life that ALL of humanity shares? What are we doing here on this plane of experience? What is the point? How shall I aim my own arrow?”
Get philosophical, babes. It’s time.
This is a big week. On Tuesday, we have Mercury Sextile Jupiter. Your mantra for Tuesdayis, “I decide how I want to expand. I am supported in clear thinking.”
On Wednesday, things get a little serious with Mercury Conjunct Saturn. This is when we say, “Okay, how do I structure myself now?” Without getting down in the dumps, can you apply some rules and boundaries to how you think and communicate? Feel the support of structure. Take yourself seriously. Put your brain in boot camp. Come out the other side a self-made warrior for ALL PEOPLE.
Thursday we experience the first of 3 squares between Jupiter and Pluto. (The other two will happen in March 30th and August 4th of 2017.) Find your ambition. This is expansion and evolution in a challenging and conflicting aspect.
Uh-oh— what does that mean?
First of all, what is expansion?
Expansion is-- Where are you going? Where would you go if there was nothing in your way. Ask yourself the miracle question… If a miracle occurred in the night while you were sleeping, how would your life look when you wake up in the morning? You can ask this question for your life in general, or a specific area where you are stuck.
The answer to this question is your vision. The answer to this question is your expansion.
You will want to know how to expand in ways that are in alignment with your vision. As you yearn to expand, you must be careful not to take on too much. Jupiter in Libra reminds us that there is always balance needed.
Second, what is evolution?
Evolution is the cycles of life and the cycles of the Soul. In life, we are born, we create, we die. We are born again. In the cycles of the Soul we are born, we create experience, and we must let who we have become die away so that we can be born on a higher level of experience. We yearn to evolve. Evolution brings with it destruction. It’s just a part of the cycle.
As Jupiter and Pluto tango in the sky, we will wrestle with the part of ourselves that needs to die away so that we can expand and evolve.
We will have to face off with whatever it is that we are trying to control. We will have to Let Go. Think of yourself as a tree letting go of leaves every winter so that it can move gracefully into the next season. Themes of Forgiveness may be coming up in a big way as we move through this massive cycle. Let go. Forgive. Accept. Surrender. Free up energy so that you can put it toward your vision. Be willing to break open. It can be painful. Be brave.
We may see ourselves wrestling with these ideas of expansion and evolution on the collective levels and on the personal levels. Show up however you can.
Oh boy, we aren’t even done with the week yet…
On Friday, we’ve got Venus square Jupiter and Venus conjunct Pluto. This throws a little grace into the process I just described above. Venus is coming in to soften and make nice. Don’t underestimate beauty. Don’t underestimate love. This process of growth and letting go should align with your ideals. It should be a beautiful vision.
It almost seems like too much information, but I didn’t write this week, the Universe did... so on Saturday, Mercury is square Chiron and Mercury is trine Uranus. Your brain is ready to make some new connections in relationship to some old wounds. It’s time to shake up the little snow globe that you live in and see things in a new way. Let it be cathartic. Let every circumstance bring you more healing in a major way. Don’t look away. Look for deeper understanding.
Sending you so much love. If you are yearning for personal guidance at this time, click here to learn more about what a Strong Eye Reading is and how to book. I am here for you and I am ready to help!
Sagittarius :: Sagittarius Rising
A needle pulling thread. The driving force behind progress. You need to find your driver. What is the philosophy that is pushing you forward? What is your mission? Look for clearcut understanding. Find the structure that you can use to help define who you are. It’s time to take yourself seriously. You aren’t being given much room to cut corners right now. You have to show up. If you experience conflict this week, it will be because you are trying to skip a step. It’s not any more complicated than that. Go back and check your work. See where you’ve been putting in less than your full effort. Check your stitches.
Capricorn :: Capricorn Rising
A fountain. The inner wellspring. It’s time for you to focus your attention inward. Your emotions are begging to be noticed. You have to rewrite your subconscious stories so that your reactions are more comfortable. You can back-engineer this process. When you have an uncomfortable emotion, start asking yourself lots of questions to get to the root of it. Interview yourself. Ask, where is this emotion in my body? When was the first time I felt this way? What does this circumstance remind me of? What are the personality traits of the people involved? Who else in my life has these same traits? Are the emotions actually about this other person? Start digging to reach the source of the deep emotional waters. You get to form new subconscious beliefs this week, start an excavation to see what is ready to change.
Aquarius :: Aquarius Rising
A flock of birds taking flight. You’re ready to reach higher ground. Everyone is going with you. You may need to mobilize a group of some kind— friends, work, volunteer organization, community board.

It feels like there is work to be done and you have both the flexibility and the dedication you need to make change happen. Stay upbeat and objective and keep your eyes on the goal.

Ferns growing tall. You are poised to unfurl your talents. You are reaching for a higher level with your career. This week, you can restructure how you think about your work.

Consider it a responsibility. The world needs your work. The world needs your special offering. Set yourself up so that you can deliver.
Aries :: Aries Rising
Running on new legs. Like Bambi. You’re a little unsteady, but excited and ready to move forward. Figure it out. How do you do this? How do you explore the world? What are you looking for? Where are you going? You are trying to re-orient yourself now. Things have changed and new direction is needed. Only you can hold yourself up. Only you can get yourself through this nascent stage of discovery. Keep yourself oriented toward gratitude and love as you make your way through a new world of unknowns. Don’t let fear creep in. Embrace the invincibility of youth.
Taurus :: Taurus Rising
A picnic basket. You have everything you need. You are prepared. So let go of fear of survival and step into trust. You’re safe enough to take the journey. Your work right now is to know that you are safe, know that you are prepared and loosen up your grip on control. Let go. Forgive. Flow. See where the path takes you. Make a promise that wherever you go this week, you will witness yourself. You will stand by, securely tethered to trust in yourself, but open to understanding and merging with the other person’s perspective. Witness your emotions so that you can hold space for another person’s experience. Take the journey toward union. You have what you need to stay safe along the way.
Gemini :: Gemini Rising
Kneeling in prayer. You can have lots of conversations this week that help you grow. Share yourself with another person. Share your mind, your heart, your trust. You will find support in relationship. But you may also have to remind yourself that structure in relationship can bring freedom. You just have to get over feeling limited. The stretch that you want to make is toward security. Stability may seem dour and boring, but you can make it light and expansive if you want to. Ask for the experience that you want to have in relationship and then trust that you can have it.
Cancer :: Cancer Rising
Penguins sliding down slopes. Make fun a part of your day. If you don’t, you may become fatigued. Truthfully, you are about to put a lot more structure and meaning into your daily schedule. The important thing is that the new habit you are creating need to come from within. So that they don’t feel forced. The healthy choices need to feel like an offering of love that you give yourself. Don’t shy away from structure. Meditate more. Eat the foods that your body needs. Plan to get enough sleep. Celebrate your accomplishments on a regular basis so that joy is a part of your daily life.
Leo :: Leo Rising
A new kind of pottery. Something sculptural, yet utilitarian. Something wild and perfectly creative. This week, you take leaps and bounds forward with your self expression. You can be truly alive, exactly the way you want to be. You need to focus on it though. It won’t just happen automatically. You have to think it through. What kind of offering are you prepared to make? The world is begging for your light. What will you give? It can’t be random. It must be planned. It must be envisioned. Go to the drawing board and outline your plans for creative expression. Don’t get distracted from this task.
Virgo :: Virgo Rising
Birthday cake. A nostalgic moment. It’s time to make sure your inner child is really pleased. They need to be celebrated. Take them out on the town with you. Make sure they feel included and loved. Think back over each of your childhood birthdays and remember how they felt. Which ones were joyful? Which ones are forgotten? Which ones lacked something important? Give your child self whatever was missing, now, in your mind. If you needed attention, give yourself attention. If you needed understanding, give yourself understanding. Time doesn’t really exist, so this process is truly fulfilling. It will allow you the structure you need to move forward with emotional security.
Libra :: Libra Rising
Playing paddle ball. Watching the ball go back and forth. Watch your thoughts as if they are balls bouncing back and forth. The path is somewhat logical. This week you are making new connections in your thought process. Notice what you are thinking about with clarity and alacrity. If your thoughts are tending toward work, get clear about what you are working on. If your thoughts are dense with emotions, get clear about your emotions. If you are grieving, remember the five stages of grief and be aware of which one you are in at any given moment. Get clear. Think of yourself as a narrator— as you think, tell yourself what you are thinking about. This will help you define yourself and stay on track. You have a lot to do this week and you need to be operating at a high level of consciousness. Step up to take your place in the game.

Trust in the process as you accumulate new knowledge and experience.
