01-16-2017 to 01-22-2017
Choose quality over quantity this week, Sagittarius. With "lust for life" Jupiter as your ruler, you're always hungry for expansion. But with the Sun in conservative Capricorn until Thursday, January 19th restricting your bountiful appetite can be a good thing. Forget deprivation though; just be selective. It might be wiser to splurge on a classic item that's a little more luxe than to haul home a bunch of clearance items that fail to fully "spark joy." (Those will just wind up in the clutter category.) Apply this philosophy to your kitchen. Cook a smaller batch with high-quality ingredients and take time to mindfully appreciate each bite instead of inhaling whatever's on your plate. Continue to map out your 2017 budget, trimming the fat wherever you can. But don't just focus despairingly on the expense column. What can you do to boost your income? Tune in: Are any limiting beliefs operating about your ability to generate abundance? Background thoughts, such as "I'll never be wealthy" or "If I have more, others will suffer" can barricade you from earning. Break out your journal and write a list of all those negative thoughts. Awareness comes before alchemy, Archer. You might even burn it in a little ritual and replace it with a money mantra like, "Abundance is the universe's plan for me," or "When I thrive, everyone thrives." Check out Barbara Stanny's Sacred Success (http://barbarastanny.com/books-products) for a soulful and inspired outlook on money. If you're doing well financially, how can you give back? At work this week, stick up for a project you believe in, or advocate for a colleague. Treat a struggling friend to a massage or self-development workshop, share tips from your own success story on your blog, find a charity that appeals to you and donate a portion of your income to the cause. This keeps the good karma flowing, Sagittarius, signaling your gratitude to the universe and opening you up to receive more.
On Thursday, your social butterfly wings start fluttering again as the Sun swings into Aquarius and your garrulous third house through February 18. Network, network, network! Partnership opportunities begin popping up at every turn—and they could be the path to profitability over the coming four weeks. Do you have an idea for a class or workshop (either online or in real time)? Carve out time for developing the curriculum, or even writing your own self-published book. Read and research "the competition" to get the wheels of inspiration a-turning. This won't take long. You'll absorb information at lightning speed while Aquarius' solar power sharpens your mental acuity. With the Sun beaming into your communication sector, your gift of gab will be in rare form. Bring on those witty one-liners and helpful advice. People love hearing what you have to say. Maybe it's time to record a podcast or YouTube series—or to get to work on a self-improvement book that's been whirling in the back of your mind. If you've achieved expertise in an area, shop yourself around as a motivational speaker. Your willingness to dabble and experiment will open new doors. Instead of planning the rest of your life out, how about just trying something once and seeing if you like it? People bring motivational energy for your fitness goals now, too. A local gym or studio could become your new community center. Why not bond with neighbors while you hone your dance moves or tighten your core in Mat Pilates? If you want to incorporate healthy eating into your 2017 resolutions, consider a plan that comes with a built-in support community. Other people's success stories—and cathartic tales—will keep you on point.
Watch your emotional load on Thursday though! That day, aggressive Mars in your fourth house of feelings will form a stressful square (90 degree angle) to Saturn in Sagittarius. Although you'll have your oven mitts in plenty of pots this week, you could easily overpromise and stress yourself out. You love to be helpful, Sagittarius, but you hate when people get overly dependent on you. If you wind up in the caretaker role, make sure you are getting enough support for yourself, too. Food could become a drug—or preventative medicine; the choice is yours. Instead of stuffing down feelings with "comfort food," nourish yourself with protein-rich and plant-based foods. It's an optimal week for kicking a new eating plan into gear, one that revitalizes you AND fills you up (deprivation is the devil for Sagittarius). It might simply be helpful to start a food journal to track the connection between your meals and your moods.
