Sage Sagittarians ~ Some Inspirational Quotes

 As the Sun settles into wise, adventurous Sagittarius, here are a few quotes from some well know Saggies, which also reflect their Moon sign...
I'm competitive with myself. I always try to push past my own borders. Tyra Banks, Model/TV Presenter Sun Sagittarius, Moon Aries
Blake said that the body was the soul's prison unless the five senses are fully developed and open. He considered the senses the 'windows of the soul.' When sex involves all the senses intensely, it can be like a mystical experience. Jim Morrison, Singer, The Doors Sun Sagittarius, Moon Taurus
I'm not wise, but the beginning of wisdom is there; it's like relaxing into - and an acceptance of - things. Tina Turner, Singer Sun Sagittarius, Moon Gemini

A Gift from the Heavens?

Image
Venus and Jupiter are the ‘nice’ planets, the ‘benefics’ of traditional astrology. While things are never that black and white, it still should gladden your heart that both Venus and Jupiter emerge from their retrogrades on the same day, 18th November.

Is the sky sending us a gift? Is this a portent of good luck and good fortune? Let’s hope so, but let’s also remember that we have free will. We are not living in medieval times, when we believed that everything was preordained by God and the heavens.

We have a choice whether to accept Jupiter and Venus’ turnaround as a gift or not. I’m inclined to think it is. Remember, both planets are in signs where they are at their strongest, where they rule - Venus in Libra and Jupiter in Pisces. Balance, peace, harmony, compassion, communion, cooperation, love and beauty are some positive keywords for these placements.

If we accept this gift, then it’s up to us to decide what to do with it. Do we think, ‘ah that’s nice’ and then put it on a shel…

Do you seriously expect me to be the first Prince of Wales in history not to have a mistress? Charles, Prince of Wales, British royalty Sun in Scorpio, Moon in Taurus
The thing women have yet to learn is nobody gives you power. You just take it. Roseanne Barr, actress/comedienne Sun in Scorpio, Moon in Gemini
A man who is good enough to shed his blood for the country is good enough to be given a square deal afterwards Theodore Roosevelt, American politician Sun in Scorpio, Moon in Cancer
Be careful what you pretend to be because you are what you pretend to be. Kurt Vonnegut, author Sun in Scorpio, Moon in Leo

Astrology for November ~ Straight Ahead

Welcome to November

1st November is a day of celebration for many. The Day of the Dead (El Día de los Muertos) in Mexico, the Celtic New Year for pagans and All Saints' Day in the Christian tradition. This is a day to recognise and honour the dead and to find hope and light in the promise of new life to come. Whatever you are celebrating, I hope it’s been a wonderful day for you. It’s fitting, I think, that the Sun is in Scorpio for these festivals.

Turn, Turn, Turn

Astrologically, November sees three planets turn direct. Neptune has been retrograde since the end of May and finally turns around and moves forward from November 6th. Jupiter, retrograde since July 23, turns direct on November 18 and on the same day, Venus which has been retrograde since October 8, turns direct.

Neptune Direct

The long Neptune retrograde period may have been a cloudy period for many, particularly if Neptune has been transiting one of your natal planets. Disillusionment, confusion and lack of energy can…
