Personality Traits of Sagittarius: Our birthday greetings to fellow Sagittarians, one of the most optimistic and philosophical signs of the Zodiac. Ruled by Jupiter, those born under this sign have a natural ability to draw others to their way of looking at things. They have an innate ability to understand the reasoning behind events and usually look at the positive side of events. Many positive motivators and educators were born under this sign. The symbol of Sagittarius is the Centaur, with his arrow aiming high above everyone else and a horse's physical prowess and confidence.
Sagittarians are best under stress and tend to procrastinate till everything builds up to a crisis point. They like to learn everything in the minimum of time, but need to pace themselves. They love the initial challenge of any project, but get bored by the routine unless they see results.
Sagittarians can be quite flirtatious especially if they have Venus in this sign. They seem to have a playboy/playgirl quality about them, and are usually quite idealistic in love. They also seem to respond to some kind of Universal Justice, the rules of which they keep modifying themselves! Although they are known as "lucky", it is their boundless energy and faith in themselves and their abilities which is their guiding force. If you have lost faith in life or feel down, make friends with them to rekindle that spark of enthusiasm.
With Pluto moving into the sign of Sagittarius, the deep changes you have been experiencing in your attitude towards life in general from 1995 onwards till Nov. 2008 have probably really matured you as well. Mass communication, global radio and TV programs, global education, increased international trade and reforms in the educational, judicial and religious systems are also some of the highlights of the next few years.
In beg Apr to mid Aug 2012, Venus helps you with more charm and charisma and keeps your lifestyle socially active. Use this period to enhance your personality with a new hairstyle, designer outfit, or beauty treatments.
Mars makes you more foreceful and goal oriented but also more aggressive till beg July 2012. Watch ego conflicts and do not rush into projects. Pace yourself and starting watching your health more i.e. sleeping in time and enough rest and drinking filtered water etc.
Excellent for steady already going on from 2011 till mid 2012 when you will become very focused, disciplined and productive. The next few years are also excellent for spirituality and creativity and you will become more sensitive to film and multimedia especially those of you who are born in the early degrees of Sagittarius (last week of Nov and 1st week of Dec).
Jupiter opposes your Sun Sign and any other planets you may have in Sagittarius from June 2012 till June 2013. Any transit from Jupiter to your Sun sign always makes you more optimistic but pace yourself. Take advantage of new and exciting opportunities that are brought about by experiences with foreign countries and travels during this lucky period. This is the time to expand all your goals and use the "luck" element which you feel during this transit.
Jupiter represents your ability to be in the right place when opportunities develop and your need to expand your horizons: June 2012 till June 2013 will be a particularly good time for all Sagittarius teachers, priests, lawyers writers, publishers, philosophers and those involved with import/export business. Just pace yourself and don't take on more than you can handle.
The next few years are excellent for inventive ideas and anything to do with new technology as Uranus trines your Sun Sign. However, you will also be more restless and will not be able to settle in normal 9 to 5 routine work and will need more freedom from any restrictions. Try not to be too unconventional in your approach as you assert your individuality.
From Feb 2012 for several years ahead, the whole world will be much more compassionate and humanitarian and this theme will also bring out some of your best qualities in helping others. However, there is also some inspirational sadness which seems to make people more creative but also brings a sense of pathos with it. Excellent for helping others but you may feel that you want to do more than just focus on material assets. Get involved with some volunteer work to offset this theme. This is also an excellent transit for all creative projects especially if they involve the film, music or any art form.
You will only benefit from the inspirational transit of Neptune if you become more humanitarian and concerned for the welfare of the masses. When it comes to spirituality and creativity, you will be at the top of your game. You will be acutely sensitive to sound and colour and will have exciting spurts of luck throughout this period.
When Mars makes an adverse aspect to your Neptune, this transit reduces the immune system of the body and you are more prone to scandals, out of wedlock pregnancies and other nightmares scenarios.
Depending on the age group listed below, you are also more prone to stress related illnesses including the flu and generally need to be careful that you don't set yourself up for a nightmare period. Be extra careful when signing any documents, investing in stocks on going to psychics or tarot card readers (astrologers are a bit more dependable!).
You also need to be extra careful with the ocean (drowning incidents) or being kidnapped! Of course this doesn't happen all the time but at least don't put yourself in that position. False accusations, feelings of betrayal and being a victim of scam artists is also a hallmark of this transit.
Here are the dates given for the different age groups: (For the exact dates, you should consider having Your 12 Month Forcast done):
Everyone born in 20s and 60s: There is a very stressful period from mid Aug 2012 till mid Oct 2012 for those of you born in the 60’s (lot of Hollywood actors) as well as the 20’s age group (Age of the Golden Movies who have to be careful of heart because of their age anyway and stress related illnesses). 60s age group has Neptune in Scorpio and is the most radical (Princess Diana's accident happened during a Mars Neptune transit).
