A group of Sadges partying hard under Jupiter in Leo, LOL! Image from Disney’s Fantasia.
Ever since Jupiter arrived in Leo last summer, nothing has brought out the party animal in Sadge quite like this energy! But maaaaaybe it might be time to dial it back a bit, yes? We know how this sign already tends to do things to the max (read: excess) – and being on Jupiter in Leo 24/7/365 has definitely strengthened the inclination to perhaps overdo it a bit when it comes to having a good time.
But with the longer-running influence of Saturn passing over your Sun at some point during the next 2+ years coupled with the fact that Jupiter will soon slip into Virgo, it may be time to dial it back a bit, no? Saturn transits always call for the cultivation of self-restraint – couple this with Jupiter passing into wellness-oriented Virgo in a few months, and it may be time to think about cleaning up your act before your health suffers for it, yes?
An amusing, quick-and-dirty way to figure out which side of the forthcoming Saturn/Neptune square you’re currently vibing with (active between 2015-2016) is to contemplate your response to the image below:
Meet the beer bike limo! Yes, it’s a real thing. You and a few pals can belly up to the bar and enjoy a pint whilst taking in a slow-motion tour of the city powered by your own two legs (and a Designated Driver chauffer, of course). If you get too tired/drunk to peddle? No big deal – an eco-friendly electric motor kicks in to save the day!
Now does the idea of a beer bike limo sound like the BEST. THING. EVER., or are you instead struck by impracticality of such a slow, seemingly pointless means of transport?
If you answered A, you’re most likely erring on the Neptune side of the equation. Neptune will square the Suns of all November & early December-born Sagittarians between now & late 2016. Symptoms of this can include: an increased hankering for booze (or other substances), a marked decrease in critical thinking and possible impaired judgment, and/or a longing for some kind of spiritual connection. For more possible manifestations (both constructive and detrimental), see the following post on Neptune transits.
If instead you answered B, you’re probably leaning more toward the Saturn end of things. ALL Sagittarians will experience the passage of Saturn over their Suns during the next 2 years, and this has the capacity to make for an “all work and no play” attitude. If you can’t muster at least a little good humor at the absurdity of the above-pictured invention, it may be a sign that you’re taking life a little too seriously these days and could benefit from an injection of whimsy! I mean, come on – it’s a pub crawl with cardio, for goodness sakes!
However you feel about the beer bike limo, you have to admit that it is a pretty genius business idea perfect for the aforementioned Saturn in Sagittarius square to Neptune in Pisces. Craft beers have been taking off like crazy thanks to Neptune’s residence in Pisces, and this is an excellent way of imbibing with virtual calorie-count neutrality while toning/firming those gams at the same time! It’s very neo-hippie, IMO – something Sadge would love, as I’ve yet to meet a Sadge that couldn’t run or bike their ass off. Well, OK – maybe one or two, but that’s because they favored armchair philosophizing over a couple of brewskis to general physical exertion, LOL. But this sign does love to stretch the legs and roam, and I can’t think of a more fitting (and hilarious!) mode of transportation for a Sadge having a Neptune transit – cheers!
Wow, so Saturn enters Sagittarius in just over a week (December 23rd) – check this story out, because it’s a sure sign of this energy: Cops (Saturn) playing the role of Santa Claus (Sagittarius)! Pretty wild that we’re seeing signs of this ingress already, ya?!
Double bonus points: It’s no secret that law enforcement (Saturn) has indeed been getting some pretty bad press lately (see: Ferguson, MO et al), which is something that we expect to see with Saturn in Scorpio since this placement corresponds to abuses and misuses of “authority”. Corrupt cops are unfortunately something that’s par for the course with this energy, which is still technically in play until December 23rd. But now that Saturn is about to leave Scorpio for Sadge, it seems Sagittarius’ benevolent ways are already giving the police a much-needed PR lift. Sagittarius is the Great Benefactor of the zodiac – every planet gets a boost when it traverses this sign. If Saturn = the cops, it makes total sense that law enforcement – as a physical representation of Saturn energy – would benefit from this planet’s entrance into Sadge. An interesting illustration of astrology in action!
The Philosoraptor: Quite possibly the most perfect pop-culture mascot ever for our Centaur friends, LOL!
Welcome to Sagittarius season, everyone – just a little horsey humor for ya to help kick things off! Oh, and speaking of the Sun entering Sadge, you do realize this means we’ve got a Sun/Jupiter mutual reception in effect for the next 30 days, right?
