General 2014 Overview:
That rowdy and restless reputation of yours? You’ve definitely gone “off brand,” Sagittarius. Since last year, a clutch of planets has been in water signs, pulling you into more emotional and even solitary realms of your chart. This inward-facing vibe carries into 2014, especially since your ruling planet Jupiter is in Cancer, your intimate and soulful eighth house, until July 16. Not that exploring your inner landscape isn’t its own form of journeying, but you won’t get back to the actual globe-trotting until mid-July, when Jupiter moves into fiery Leo, your ninth house of travel, study and new horizons. Your enthusiastic personality won’t be so muted once that happens. However, you’ll still have to contend with stern old Saturn. The cosmos’ curmudgeon is in Scorpio, your twelfth house of hidden agendas and closure, until December 23. Saturn has been here since October 2012, doling out a few tough lessons about being overly trusting—perhaps even vis-a-vis a snake in the grass. If you’ve been betrayed by a frenemy or loved one, Saturn challenges you to practice a new form of forgiveness. You never have to be okay with what happened, but you don’t have to take it personally either. If you do, you make it about you (“what have I done to deserve this?”)…when really, it’s about them. It’s the equivalent of saying, “I no longer wish to be the dumping ground for your ugliness and wounds. Take them back and heal them somewhere else.” Shed that darkness, Archer, because on December 23, Saturn enters Sagittarius for the first time since 1985, setting off a three-year reinvention tour. All that is beneath you will be stripped away. It’s time for your own light to shine.
