December will always follow a fairly predictable pattern, with adventurous forces in play in the first part of the month, gradually making way for a more competitive push as the Sun nears your career sector, where he will always spend Christmas and the New Year. This year the Sun will, as he always does at this time of year, spend the first 3 weeks of December in your sector of travel, adventure, learning and discovery and he's even brought Venus and Mercury with him, with heart and mind also involved and while they will all return to your career sector this month, a sense of adventure and a need for life's richer experiences will be something that you'll find impossible to shake off. Mars only recently moved through this adventurous part of your chart, with his departure at the end of October leaving you with a passion for adventure that you're still running with as you move into December. Yet while Venus will leave your sector of travel, adventure, learning and discovery and return to your career sector on the 11th December, followed by Mercury on the 17th December and the Sun on the 22nd December, just 2 days later everything will change. For on the 24th December Saturn will deliver the Christmas present to end all Christmas presents, returning to take over from where an annual update has left off. Saturn is the hard taskmaster of the cosmos, setting the rules and regulations and determining where you need to take responsibility and since October 2012 that has been all about financial matters. Yet on the 24th December Saturn will return to your sector of travel, adventure, learning and discovery, for the first time since 1988 and while he will retrograde back out for a few months next year, he's here until December 2017 to help show you the world and what you've been missing out on. This is a game changer and completely changes the way you will look at 2015, focused now more on the journey than on anything else.
When the Sun, Venus and Mercury left your relationship sector they left Saturn behind to do what he's been doing over the last 2 years, which is keep working away at your relationships, working to maintain both personal and relationship authenticity and especially when it comes to the balance between the two. While your relationships will remain an important area of focus, as the Sun does at this time every year a lot of the focus has shifted to your financial game and money matters, with the Sun always spending the first 3 weeks of December in your financial sector. This year you will move into December with the Sun, Mercury and Venus in your financial sector, giving you a smart head for money, a clear sense of where things stand, what you have to work with and some well defined financial desires and expectations. The fact that Mars had only left your financial sector weeks before the other planets arrived last month, meant that you were also able to capture the financial passions and fighting spirit developed over recent months. However what you should expect is that once Venus leaves your financial sector on the 11th December, Mercury on the 17th December and the Sun on the 22nd December that the money gods had done their dash for the year. With all three returning to your sector of travel, adventure, learning and discovery when they leave your financial sector, as is the case at this time each year, the Christmas and New Year period is always a time where you can take your money hat off and having taken care of any financial housekeeping, let things play out. However, just 2 days after the Sun leaves your financial sector on the 22nd December, leaving it empty and you on your own everything changes, with Saturn deciding that your relationships have had enough of his scrutiny and that he will instead follow the other planets into your financial sector. This is Saturn's first visit to your financial sector since 1988 and between now and December 2017 he's out to show you what taking your power back really means.
While the focus will always be on your relationships at this time of year, with the Sun always spending the first 3 weeks of December in your relationship sector, it's been 12 years since you've had Jupiter in your communication sector at the same time and it's been even longer since you've had the kind of support and demands that will have set in by the end of the month. With Venus, planet of love in your relationship sector until the 11th December Mercury, planet of communication until the 17th December and the Sun until the 22nd December, this was always going to be one of the most important relationship months of the year. With Mercury working to ensure the communication lines are open, Venus to give you a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you and the Sun performing his annual relationship review, this is a chance to create a fresh start and a new, level playing field. With Mars having moved through your relationship sector in September/October, this had already shaken things up and got everything out in the open. However, when the Sun leaves your relationship sector on the 22nd December that should be it for the year, with your relationships going back to something that is up to you to maintain. Yet just 2 days later everything will change, when on the 24th December Saturn will return to your relationship sector, making his first visit since 1988. While he'll retrograde back out for a few months next year, he will spend until December 2017 taking you through relationship boot camp, working with you to create something real and authentic. Until then Saturn will be tying up loose ends on the work front, though will leave some things up in the air to see how they play out, before returning between June and September 2015 to bring things home. As is the case at this time every year, while the Sun moves on to let Saturn take care of your relationships the solar spotlight will shift to money matters. While the Sun will always spend Christmas and New Year in your financial sector, making it impossible to escape the financial realities of this time of year, this year this will come with a smart head for money and some clear financial desires and expectations.
This is always one of your busiest months of the year, with the Sun always spending the first 3 weeks of December in your work sector, yet this is where similarities with any other December in nearly 3 decades begins and ends. This was always going to be a little more important than other years, not only because Mars moves through from mid September to late October, getting things moving just 3 weeks before your annual update began, but because this is the first time since 2002 that you've had lucky Jupiter in your income sector at the same time. With Venus in your work sector until the 11th December, Mercury until the 17th December and the Sun until the 22nd December, you've not only got heart and mind engaged and your eyes open, but a chance to gain some income advantages as well. The fact that this push will be over by Christmas is likely to add to a sense of urgency, yet there will be an inner voice that will be telling you to pace yourself. You're an intuitive sign with a sixth sense that you can rely on, so when you find yourself feeling that you need to pull back and pace yourself then listen, for on the 24th December, just 2 days after the Sun leaves your work sector and as you are taking your work hat off for the Christmas/New Year period, Saturn will return to your work sector for the first time since he left in 1988. Back then he wrapped up a visit that began in 1985 and this time, while he'll take a 3 month break in mid 2015, he's back until December 2017. Just 2 days after the busiest months of 2014 run their course the busiest years in 3 decades will begin, with one a stepping stone to the other. Despite the fact that the Sun, Venus and Mercury will all move into your relationship sector after leaving your work sector, there will be little chance of taking your work hat off anytime soon. Yet this cements a relationship between lucky Jupiter in your income sector and Saturn in your work sector, one that brings the promise of some very busy but lucrative times ahead. In the meantime, Mars' return to your financial sector on the 5th December will fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit.
This is always a time of year when your biggest challenge is finding a balance between work and play, but by the end of the month this will become something that will be impossible to ignore. You will always have this conflict at this time of year, not because the holidays are approaching or that your working year is coming to an end and rather because of where the Sun is at this time every year. The Sun will always spend the first 3 weeks of December in a playful, romantic and creative part of your chart, before returning to your work sector on the 22nd December, where he'll spend Christmas, New Year and the first 3 weeks of every year. However, things are never that clear cut and as is the case this year the lines will become blurred, especially mid month and even more so over Christmas. To start with your biggest problem may be keeping your work hat on, especially once Mars leaves your work sector and returns to your relationship sector on the 5th December and the Sun, Mercury and Venus are all focused on matters of the heart. However, with Venus returning to your work sector on the 11th December, just 6 days after Mars finished firing up your professional passions and fighting spirit and then Mercury on the 17th December, the race to bring your working year to a close and start setting up for 2015 will already begin. The Sun's departure from your romantic and creative sector on the 22nd December will leave it empty, with the battle to find a balance between work and play lost or so it will seem, for 48 hours anyway. For just 2 days later Saturn will bring the Christmas gift to end all gifts, with his return to your home and family sector on the 24th December. Just when matters of the heart had lost their final champion they receive the biggest champion they've had since this powerful planet was last here, between 1985 and 1988. With Mars spending Christmas and the New Year in your relationship sector and Saturn demanding that you put matters of the heart first, this will give work focused forces a real run for their money.
Year after year you will notice familiar themes to different months and this is all to do with the fact that the Sun returns to the same area of your chart at the same time every year, with a predictability that would put any transport system to shame. This is why the focus will always be on home and family matters in the first part of December, shifting to a more playful, romantic and creative focus just in time for Christmas. The Sun will always spend the first 3 weeks of December in your home and family sector and this year is no exception and unlike last year, he has Venus and Mercury here as well, with heart and mind engaged, the communication lines open and thanks to Mars' visit just before they arrived, most things out in the open. With Venus leaving on the 11th December, Mercury on the 17th December and the Sun on the 22nd December, the first 3 weeks of December would appear to be the most important for home, family and/or property matters. Yet their focus is due to be eclipsed just 2 days after the Sun leaves and wraps up his annual review, with Saturn's return on the 24th December changing everything. This turns this from an annual update to the start of your most important home and family chapter in decades or since Saturn was last here from 1985 to 1988. Apart from 3 months in mid 2015 Saturn is here until December 2017 and returning 2 days after the biggest update of family matters in 2 years has run its course, it's a journey you'll slip into seamlessly. This takes this to a whole new level and sets the scene for some of the most important years for home and family matters in decades and for some ever. This won't stop the Sun, Mercury and Venus doing all that they can to bring the fun, romance and play into the Christmas/New Year period and together this sets the scene for some fun, family times over the holiday period. However, with Mars returning to your work sector on the 5th December and a Full Moon in your career sector on the 7th December you will have to juggle this with a busy and important professional month, making finding the right work/life balance and the right balance between work and play important.
When the Sun, Mercury and Venus left your income sector last month they wrapped up not only their annual review, but their last encounter with Saturn here for another 3 decades and with Saturn himself leaving on the 24th December, there is a real need to stand your ground, not only when it comes to income matters, but standing up for yourself, in what you're worth and what you believe in across all the currencies in your life. Saturn will return for 3 months in mid 2014, but it will only be to tie up loose ends and if you're going to make one last assault on any glass ceilings, then it needs to be before Christmas. In the meantime, as is the case at this time every year, communication is an important factor. The Sun will always spend the first 3 weeks of December in your communication sector and this year he has both Venus and Mercury here to help him out, making it a lot easier to ensure the communication lines are open. With Venus leaving your communication sector on the 11th December, Mercury on the 17th December and the Sun on the 22nd December this is something that should have done its dash by Christmas. But instead Saturn's return to your communication sector on the 24th December, for the first time in 26 years, will take this to a whole new level, turning communication from something that is important at this time of year, to something that will become your No. 1 priority moving forward and will remain that way for the next 3 years, with Saturn not leaving until December 2017. In the meantime, while Venus won't return to your home and family sector until the 11th December, Mercury until the 17th December and the Sun until the 22nd December, with the solar focus always on home and family matters over the Christmas/New Year period, with Mars here in the early days of the month this is something you're able to get a jump on. By the time Mars leaves on the 5th December Venus will be just 6 days away, giving you a chance to let things settle for a few days. In the meantime, Mars is off on a mission that will bring some real colour into the final weeks of 2014 and the early weeks of 2015, firing up your romantic and creative passions.
With Jupiter making his first visit to your career sector in over a decade and here from August 2014 to August 2015 and the only planetary activity in your income sector during that time playing out now, this was always going to be an important month for both professional and income matters and especially when it comes to bringing the two together. However, even Mars' 6 week visit to your income sector from mid September to late December, which ended just 3 weeks before the push that is still playing out began, isn't in the same league as Jupiter, whose visit to your career sector is game changing. The Sun will always spend the first 3 weeks of December in your income sector, but apart from the fact that you've got Jupiter expanding your professional opportunities and Mars has already been through to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit, there is nothing to suggest that this is anything more than a temporary leg up, albeit the best leg up you've had for several years. With Venus leaving your income sector on the 11th December, Mercury on the 17th December and the Sun on the 22nd December, this is the point where the money gods call it a day, having done all they can to help you smash your way through any glass ceilings. However, this will be a false impression, for just 2 days after your annual push to get income matters up to speed ends everything changes, with Saturn's return on the 24th December a game changer. Saturn is most definitely in Jupiter's league and here now, apart from 3 months in mid 2014 until December 2017 and lucky Jupiter not leaving your career sector until next August, this is when the push for professional and income success really begins. While the Sun, Mercury and Venus will move on to focus on your communications and Mars will keep the focus on home and family matters for the majority of the month, something has been unleashed on the income and career fronts that will drive everything from this point on.
On face value you are experiencing a fairly ordinary birthday month, apart from the fact that because Mars moved through just weeks earlier you're more fired up, passionate and competitive, with nothing to suggest the game changing developments that will unfold this side of Christmas. The Sun will always spend the first 3 weeks of December in your sign, so whether you are a November or a December born Sagittarian, this is your birthday month, the start of a new solar year and a chance to go around the block again. While the Sun didn't return to your sign until the 22nd November, with Venus having not only returned mid November but just 3 weeks after Mars left, you've been building towards this point since as far back as mid September. With Venus leaving your sign on the 11th December, Mercury on the 17th December and the Sun on the 22nd December, as you move into the final month of the year you're also moving into the final weeks of a push to get your new solar year off the ground and your future onto the track that you want it to continue on. As the planets leave your sign they'll shift their focus to income matters and while Venus will be the first to return on the 11th December, with Mars in your income sector until the 5th December and leaving just 6 days before Venus returns, with the planet of money, desire and attraction easily able to convert that into real opportunities. However, while there will be a shift towards income matters as the month progresses and from the 5th December Mars will be working to ensure the communication lines are open, when your birthday month comes to an end there is likely to be a sense that you haven't finished, despite the fact that you've had more planets move through your sign over the last few months than had done in years. The game changer is Saturn's return to your sign on the 24th December, bringing a Saturn cycle of growth that began in 1985 to an end and starting a brand new 30 year cycle. Less than 48 hours after your birthday month ends, Saturn steps in and turns this from the start of a fairly ordinary new solar year into your most powerful year in decades.
This will always be a month of contrasts for you and also one where the experience we all feel at this time of year, where we're wrapping up one year and looking ahead to the New Year, is felt more acutely. For you are the only sign that will always move into a New Year with the Sun in your sign and your solar and calendar years in synch or out by just a few days. For while the new calendar year won't begin until the 1st January, your new solar year will begin when the Sun returns to your sign on the 22nd December. This will always create a feel, at this time of year, that you're straddling both sides of the fence, especially with Mars already in your sign as you move into the new month and Venus returning on the 11th December. Yet while both will begin opening new doors, with the wind down of your current solar year not running its course until the 22nd December, it really will feel like you have one foot in the past and another in the future. Even when the Sun does return to your sign on the 22nd December and your birthday month and new solar year begins, you will find it hard to close the door to the past, something that you won't shake next month either or for the majority of the next 3 years. That's because on the 24th December, less than 48 hours after your birthday month ends, Saturn will return to your sector of subconscious thinking, imagination and review, to begin occupation of the very area of your chart the Sun has just vacated, beginning the much longer and far more significant job of wrapping up a Saturn cycle that began in 1988 and won't end until he returns to your sign in December 2017. Where the early weeks of December are a time of reflection, introspection and looking within, Saturn's return makes this part of your new ongoing reality. However, there'll be little time for navel gazing and for Saturn this is a journey that will take 3 years to complete. In the meantime, the money gods will be especially active this month, with Mars' return to your income sector on the 5th December not only firing up your financial passions and fighting spirit and bringing a drive to smash through glass ceilings, but giving lucky financial forces their first real wakeup call.
Since October 2012 Saturn's position in your career sector has been a driving force in your life, especially so over recent months as the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars moved through. Yet when the Sun left your career sector on the 22nd November, this is when you would have noticed that there was no longer the professional push there once was. While Jupiter wrapped up his 12 month visit to your work sector in July, by the time the last push to extract every advantage ran its course in mid August Mars was already in your career sector, channelling all your professional energy into career matters. This is a momentum that only ran its course when the Sun left your career sector on the 22nd November, creating one of your busiest and most important professional years in over a decade. Yet as you move into December and Saturn is once more on his own, as he has been for the majority of the 26 months he's already spent there, there is no signs yet that you'll have a chance to take your professional hat off. Yet by Christmas that's exactly what you'll have a chance to do, with Saturn leaving your career sector on the 24th December. He will return next June for a 3 month visit aimed at tying up loose ends, but his departure just before Christmas gives you your first chance in over 2 years to take your professional hat off and the timing couldn't be better. You have built up so much momentum on the work, career and income fronts over the last few years that there is no chance that you'll lose your momentum anytime soon, but this does give you a chance to stop stirring the pot and have a life. Already the Sun, Mercury and Venus have more social matters in mind at the start of the month, keeping this in motion right through to the Sun's departure from your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking on the 22nd December. Yet it's here that Saturn will return after he leaves your career sector on the 24th December, just 2 days later, setting the scene for some important months and years for both personal and professional networking. While Mars will return to your sign on the 5th December and will spend the rest of the month firing up your passions and fighting spirit, all you'll really want to do over Christmas and New Year is relax, unwind and recharge your batteries, something which by then you will fully deserve.
Even though lucky Jupiter has been in your work sector since August and the Sun, Mercury and Venus were all around to help launch this, your luckiest and most expansive 12 months on the work front in over a decade, you have yet to fully appreciate its full potential. You've had a taste of this and an inkling of what's possible professionally since Mars returned to your career sector in mid September, something you're continuing to explore this month. As is always the case at this time of year, with the Sun always spending the first 3 weeks of December in your career sector, the spotlight is on career matters and with Venus here until the 11th December and Mercury until the 17th December, you're mentally on the ball, you have your head in the game and some strong professional desires and expectations. This is the push that lucky work matters need, especially with Jupiter in retrograde motion until early July. However, with even the Sun gone from your career sector by the 22nd December, this is the point where while you've gained enough professional momentum to keep things going, you'll lose your real edge. Yet while the Sun, Mercury and Venus shift their focus to social matters, something that will come into its own over the holiday period, something is germinating on the professional front that suggests that a professional push is far from over and if anything, what has transpired until now is simply the warm up or a stepping stone to bigger and better things. For on the 24th December, less than 48 hours after the Sun left your career sector and you're wrapping up your professional year, everything changes and I mean everything. For on the 24th December Saturn will return to your career sector, beginning your most powerful professional years in 3 decades, a journey towards success and taking your power back that won't run its course until December 2017. With lucky Jupiter in your work sector and Uranus in your income sector, they're standing by to welcome Saturn into their fold, with the later days of 2014 setting the scene for a major period of opportunity on the income, work and career fronts in 2015. It may pay to recharge your batteries whenever you get a chance.
