Sagittarius Monthly Vedic Astrology Horoscope: January 2020
Your Monthly Horoscope by Pamela McDonough
Sagittarius you have had a full house, literally, for a while now! You may have experienced a circuit overload in the past few weeks, particularly with so much conflicting planetary energy in your sign.
The excellent news is that slowly, one by one, the planetary guests that have been camped out in Sagittarius will be heading down the cosmic highway and into Capricorn. Mercury is the first to leave, then Sun the day after on January 13. Saturn follows on January 23 – more on this powerful shift below. This leaves Jupiter, which is your very important chart ruler, Ketu and Pluto in Sagittarius.
This powerful trio of planetary energy remain in Sagittarius but they are way less intense (although still not a light/fluffy vibe!) than what has been going on the past few months. Ketu and Jupiter is a very spiritual combination and Pluto influencing these two can really fuel the fire for spiritual progress, especially now that Saturn has moved out of the sign. Now through November 2020 will be an excellent time for spiritual connection and progress, higher learning and foreign travel for spiritual growth or teaching.
Full Moon - Lunar Eclipse January 10, 2020
Jupiter is moving through the same nakshatra during the eclipse, so you may feel this one. Since this Lunar eclipse is occurring in the house of relationships you may experience some shifts in relationship energy, either business or personal, around the eclipse timing. Eclipses are not good times to make life altering decisions, and in this case particularly around relationships. Take a beat. Important conversations if possible are best had with partners after the eclipse, a day or two after if possible.
Saturn changes signs!
Fantastic news is that once Saturn leaves your sign of Sagittarius, he is headed into his own sign of Capricorn! Planets in their own signs are very happy. And we love it when Saturn, the karmic taskmaster, is pleased. Saturn moves into your second house of family, speech, savings and food on January 23, 2020. This shift will give slow and steady progress after hard work and efforts focused in these domains of life. But remember, it is Saturn and the emphasis is on sloooowwww. Don’t expect miracles to happen right away! And keep in mind Saturn has not visited his own sign of Capricorn since 1990. This is a major opportunity.
New Moon January 24, 2020
Whatever your objectives are for second house matters as I mentioned above, this new Moon is in full support! The first new Moon of the year occurs in the sign Capricorn where Saturn just moved into the day prior to the new Moon. You only get one new Moon (usually) per sign, so be sure to set your intentions for your second house since the house ruler Saturn will be there with the new Moon and will be ready and waiting to offer support for your intentions, efforts and hard work.
