Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, a planet that is a symbol of expansion, enthusiasm and taking a gamble so you can grow and change. If you are dealing with the energy of a Sagittarius you can expect to have some constant reminders to get involved with an expanding life.

This means education, travel and communication. So look to the Sagittarius people in your life to offer the stimulation necessary to become more educated in all areas of life.

Sagittarius is interested in new experiences in all areas of life. You can depend on your Sagittarian friends to influence you to travel, to get more education and to learn to communicate.

Sagittarius, like its opposite sign Gemini, needs and loves freedom. This means plenty of space to roam, study and simply be able to do what they want to do when they want to do it.

Sagittarius gets along best with the fire signs of Aries and Leo. This trio understands the need for freedom, space and few rules. They all love their freedom and it would be wise if you are not interested in moving about to stay away from Sagittarius.

People born this week: Sinead O’Connor, December 8, 1966; Kara DioGuardi, December 9, 1970; Bobby Flay, December 10, 1960; John Kerry, December 11, 1942; Frank Sinatra, December 12, 1915; Dick Van Dyke, December 13, 1925; Patty Duke, December 14, 1946; Tim Conway, December 15, 1933.

The big event in the skies this week is certainly happening on Saturday when there is a full moon in Gemini and a solar eclipse. You can’t beat that for a glorious, glamorous, life-changing event in the heavens. If you celebrate your birthday as an Aquarian or Libra, watch out for even a minor event that could turn your life upside down and inside out.

Mars continues to move through Virgo this week and on Friday it will square the moon, just a day before the full moon. You can be sure there will be tempers flaring and emotions rolling. If you want to stay out of the fray then try looking the other way.

Mercury goes direct late on Tuesday at 8:43 p.m. and once Mercury is direct life will get back to a more normal feeling.

Aries (March 21 to April 20) Take advantage of your freedom and know there could be some extraordinary experiences headed your way. If you are in a relationship then enjoy yourself and know it will be changing for the better as a result of the happenings in the heavens. Stick with your studies since they are serving to guide you into a new lifestyle.

Extra! Extra! Newsies Comes to Town

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) You are blessed with many talents and as you become more understanding of your needs then your life will really move. Because you are extremely sensitive you often take advice given in love the wrong way. This is a fine week to reach out and help a friend understand how she is handling a relationship situation upside down.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Because you are an expert when it comes to using words you need to watch what you have to say this week or you will find yourself in a jam, and the crisis will be the result of you saying some inappropriate words. Once you find yourself in a tailspin there will be no stopping it. It would be wise to remain as silent as you can be.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) Any long-term situation you find yourself in that is not making you happy should be reviewed and reorganized. If you can take just a few steps towards unifying things you will be the hero, so step out of the usual circle and spread your wings. This is the week to avoid moods and tears. There is no telling where you will go as a result of just a few changes of heart.

Leo (July 21 to August 20) When we start feeling sorry for ourselves there is only one way to go and that is change your perception of the situation. You will be amazed at how fast your new attitude about an old problem can solve the entire matter. An old buddy could also lend a helping hand, so listen to anyone who wants to give you some encouragement. It doesn’t mean you have to follow the word, just listen.

Virgo (August 21 to September 20) Because your life is headed in a new direction try to understand exactly where you want it to go. If you wait for someone else you might head in the wrong direction and miss the entire gala. A new friend will tickle your fancy but it would be wise to let it move slowly. If you go slow it will last longer and you will have more fun. Don’t let stumbling blocks stop you. You are on the right path.

Libra (September 21 to October 20) As Saturn, the planet of discipline and responsibility heads towards Scorpio you should start to feel the freedom of a job well done. Just don’t consider backtracking in any direction because you are on the right pathway. By taking on more chores now you are working on some karmic debt you have and it is good. So keep going.

Soap Star Headlines Lunch With Fans

Scorpio (October 21 to November 20) Be careful not to get involved in a new venture which could create future problems. That means stay away from any negative talk about old buddies. It will bounce back before you know it and cause trouble. Stay clear of any past situations that caused you trouble and you will be glad as life unfolds before you. A new surprise will brighten your future.

Sagittarius (November 21 to December 20) The full moon could cause some emotional nonsense around you, and since that is not your style the best move would be to get busy with another project. Just make sure it is simple and don’t sign anything until next Wednesday. In that way you will stay clear of trouble and end up with a new project that will make money.

Capricorn (December 21 to January 20) Follow your heart now and you will be starting a new challenging project next week. Set an agenda for making more money and obtaining more glory for your causes. A determined buddy could offer you a few good ideas, but wait before you sign on the dotted line or you will be spending time to get out of a mess. Wait until you have reviewed any proposals and you will make more money.

Aquarius (January 21 to February 20) If you set an agenda and stick to it you will feel much better about your work responsibilities. You really need to do more planning when it comes to moving forward. Keep track of a friend who is feeling under the weather – you are helping more than you will ever know. A good deed you have done recently will pay off ten-fold in the near future.

Pisces (February 21 to March 20) The boredom you are feeling now could leave shortly if you set up a tight schedule and make sure you include some creative work. Any alone time should be spent on digging deeper into your desires for your future. You are well on your way to a new and successful career goal. Don’t ignore the demands needed to get there.
