Sagittarius January 2017
A moment of cosmic quiet descends upon you after a busy birthday month. Whilst the holiday season may have you busy, January is the ideal time to rest, relax and reflect. 2016 was a big year for you, letting you see new possibilities on the road ahead. But soon you will realize there is still much work to do. With Saturn in your sign, themes of hard work, patience and perseverance dominate your life. As much as you don’t like it, now is the time to accept limitation and see what can happen when you restrict yourself a bit. Those of you born Dec 13-22 are now in the Saturn-Zone, and will feel the sobering effects throughout 2017 as Saturn conjoins your Sun. A major period of testing and responsibility is upon you. Be prepared to work.
The best way to act right now however is LIGHTLY, as you still have a long way to go. At this point, its ok to give yourself space especially if feeling introspective or subdued. We all get a bit excited around birthday time of year. So take time to breathe out and let things settle a bit. January suits calming down to take a breather, and is ideally designed to help you go within.
From a symbolic perspective, most of the month is best spent in contemplation mode. Ruler Jupiter continues its passage through Libra, suggesting you consider carefully collaborative ideas. But Saturn recommends patience in bringing what you want into form. Even though there is a lot that “could” happen, try to be “present but not available” at the same time. There is nothing wrong with coasting in the background while others push the holiday barrow. This is actually a great place to observe where people are coming from, and who you really want to have sharing your life.
This is also a very good month for deep thinking, as well as physical renewal in your life. Assessing your past, your progress and the role you have played in it all is important now. So take time out for meditation and retreat, whilst finding a stable centre right in the middle of it all. Yoga, meditation or martial arts may be calling, as well as anything that helps focus and quieten your mind. January will bring greater awareness about your inner world, even while circumstance appear to push you out from retreat. Don’t be fooled by the buzz of activity happening all around. Your power place is IN. Enjoy the new year but claim your own space somehow.
