2016 Sagittarius Overview
2016 Sagittarius Overview: Horoscope
This is a year for really getting your act together, dear Sagittarius! You’re maturing and looking at the world a little more realistically. Fortunately, others are seeing your growth as well, and very much admiring your competence. This is a good year for working hard but also for opportunities to lead and excel in your public or career life.
While you may be putting on a brave or at times even stoic front with Saturn in your sign, Neptune continues to influence your personal life and deeper feelings. In truth, you are becoming softer on the inside – more emotionally sensitive and spiritually vulnerable. Saturn and Neptune clash in 2016, with the last conflict occurring in September, and this dichotomy can present some problems. There may be times when you want to reach out for help or support from others, and may not know how to do so. Do what you can to find someone you trust and explain any issue you’re dealing with now. It can feel lonely at the top, especially if you’re projecting an image that doesn’t represent what’s going on inside you!
Your earnings and natural talents can play a large role in your identity and general outlook this year. Fortunately, you have strong opportunities to build up your resources in 2016 and beyond. Look to March and June in particular for business opportunities and the chance to use your natural talents more fully in the work you do. Now and in coming years, you have the opportunity to totally transform your financial life. There is real power here!
There is a Mars retrograde this year, and for all signs, there can be some troubles acting confidently and pursuing goals and desires directly during this period that runs from April 17th to June 29th. This retrograde begins in your sign and then moves back into Scorpio, the sign behind yours, so it’s a little more personal than usual. Mars first enters Sagittarius on March 5th, and you can become quite pumped up, ready to pursue your personal goals, and for some, personal magnetism skyrockets as well. However, you may second-guess yourself while Mars is retrograde in your sign from April 17th to May 27th. There will be times when you’re really spinning your wheels. Desires are complicated, and there can be some anger and resentment to deal with. Use this time to really get in touch with what motivates and drives you, and then put your plans into action when Mars returns once again to your sign, this time direct, from August 2 to September 27.
It’s very appropriate to push your career forward this year and to put more of yourself into your work. The extra effort will be rewarded. The Solar Eclipse on the first of September is a real motivator – it’s time to really go after what you want.
Even so, when Jupiter moves into your social sector on September 9th, kicking off a thirteen-month stay, you’ll feel a little more relieved, less pressured, and more connected with others. During this cycle, you’re appreciated for how well you get along with others more than how you’re performing or what you’re accomplishing. This is a forward-moving, optimistic time, even if there will be times when you’re a little overscheduled in your social world.
Keep in mind that even though Jupiter moves out of your career and reputation sector on September 9th, the Moon’s North Node remains there all year and beyond, so it’s important to bring continued focus to getting the career that truly suits you and for pushing your practical and professional interests forward. Status and reputation can improve in 2016.
Love, in general, can be exciting and also up and down. While Mars is direct in your sign, you are especially attractive (from March 5-April 16, and then from August 2-September 27). This is especially prominent from March 24-26 and September 16-19. While it isn’t necessarily a year for strong focus on romance, it can nevertheless be useful to avoid taking yourself too seriously in 2016 – take some time for fun and games. Much of October and November, either Mercury or Venus is out of bounds in your sign, suggesting it’s a time for going all out in your social life, love life, and with learning and communicating. Follow your heart now. December forward is strong for finding a creative friend or partner to assist you in moving your plans forward.
