Year of 2018: You look at life as one big adventure, Sagittarius, and you could reach new heights (perhaps quite literally) in 2018. In between circumnavigating the globe, however, use your downtime to reflect on what your nomadic experiences have taught you.
A conjunction between powerful Mars and lucky Jupiter, your ruling planet, at the start of January shows that you have a lot of strength when things go your way. Your challenge during this aspect will be to keep things under control when you don’t feel like the universe is on your side. The sun makes its annual opposition to Jupiter in the first part of May, so you may have the urge to pull off something huge but lack the resources to do so. This can be frustrating, but aim for finding the balance between having enthusiasm for what you believe in and going over the top for a personal cause.
When the sun spends time in your sign at the end of November, your sense of wanderlust is unrivaled. Your friends will find you either planning your next big trip or texting them from a country far, far away. If it isn’t in the budget to head to foreign lands, learn something at a local library, take a tour online, or audit a class at a university.
Year of 2018: When fortunate Jupiter turns retrograde in early March, Sagittarius, it’s a reminder to listen to your inner voice when it comes to love. Since you have a wandering spirit, you can be restless when it comes to love, and if you’re single that’s OK, because not being tied down to one person gives you time to satisfy your craving for adventure. Sagittarians already in relationships, however, may give off a suspicious vibe when you hold your cards too close to your chest, which can result in turmoil within the partnership. Always go with your gut instinct, but be a little more willing to let your partner in on what’s going on in that curious mind.
A soothing trine between Jupiter and the nurturing Cancer sun in early July adds stability to an existing relationship, because you have more caring tendencies than usual. You’re much more likely to put your own needs aside in favor of your partner’s, and when you experience any kind of good luck, you share your winnings as well. This is a selfless aspect, and you yearn to be part of something bigger. You want a more committed relationship at least, and perhaps a caring family unit at most.
Unattached Archers have great luck in the dating game when you ask the women in your life for advice, and you may be drawn to more feminine lovers than you usually are. Yours is a generally optimistic outlook, and why not? Your luck looks like it’s changing in the right direction!
A Mercury retrograde period in your sign in mid-November gives you the chance to look back at your romantic choices from the last month. If you made any bad decisions, it isn’t too late to make some changes. Apologies are never easy, but without them, you may never get the closure you so desperately seek. Bad judgment calls are a part of love, but not trying to fix them could prevent you from moving forward when you’re ready to start something new. Avoid major potential hang-ups and baggage in the future by eliminating regrets now. And because this period may be full of delays, postponements, and cancellations, you’ll have to have patience. This isn’t your best attribute, but true love will elude you if you don’t try.
Year of 2018: Powerful Mars plants itself in your sign at the end of January, Sagittarius, making you a bit more impulsive than usual but also more enthusiastic about your job. You’re ready to get going, and your mind is on moving current projects forward. Job-seeking Archers are looking for their next exciting job assignment, and you’d rather wait it out than take something you know won’t hold your interest for very long. You’re also likely to make your opinions and thoughts known during this time, and you may talk over people or insist that you have the last word. It isn’t that you’re intentionally being rude, but you’re so excited about whatever it is you’re working on that you can’t hold it in.
A Venus-Jupiter opposition occurs in the middle of April, at which point your financial expectations may reach astronomical new heights. You know that what you have to offer should command a large salary, but can you really bank on getting that much money for your services or talents in the real world? The worst that can happen is that they say no. You aren’t afraid to get rejected, especially since you’re so sure of your ideas and aptitude. This is, however, not a good time to borrow, lend, or invest any of your hard-earned money, because projections may be a lot better than the actual payoff. Just because things look good on paper doesn’t mean that they’ll thrive in reality.
Mercury moves into your agreeable sign in late October, which is a big shift from closed-off Scorpio. Your cerebral flow is filled with unique ideas and concepts, and you feel free to say whatever is on your mind. This is a great time to join a think tank, schedule a videoconference with the CEO, or volunteer to educate your co-workers about a subject that excites your passion. Keep your eye on the specifics, however, because you could get so excited that you leave out important details.
