Carl Boudreau has not yet posted anything for December 2014’s astrological outlook on his Facebook however for those of you who love his way of seeing things, he recently did an awesome interview which is chock-full of insights.
Sagittarius is my favourite sign (right after my own sign of Aquarius, of course…). Traditionally, Sagittarius is depicted as the centaur, the half-man, half-horse beast of Greek mythology who were known as prophets, powerful healers and astronomers full of ancient wisdom and learning. When I think of typical Sagittarius prophets, I automatically think of the likes of William Blake (Nov.28), Noam Chomsky (Dec.7), Norman Finkelstein (Dec.8), Arthur C. Clarke (Dec.16) and Frank Zappa (Dec.21).
What I really love about Sagittarius energy is that because of its ruling planet, Jupiter, the planet of luck and abundance, it brings in lots of very positive, progressively oriented energy.
Old Man Saturn, the planet of karma and restriction, has finally left Scorpio and has entered Sagittarius. (It’s not a coincidence that a plethora of sex abuse scandals suddenly broke out in the last few months particularly the ones involving Bill Cosby, acclaimed Canadian radio host Jian Ghomeshi, and the ongoing investigation involving pedophilia and the British Political Establishment. That’s classic Saturn in Scorpio for you.)
Classic Sagittarius energy is what Steve, who used to run the popular blog “Philosopher’s Stone UK”, did. He shut down Philosopher’s Stone UK and started up a new blog called “Phoenix is Risen”, taking a much more pro-active, positive and progressive outlook which emphasizes possibilities and solutions instead of the usual fear-mongering and doom and gloom many conspiracy-theory websites unfortunately tout.
But now with Saturn and a whole group of other planets who have either already entered or are about to enter Sagittarius, one of the most positive, expansive places within the zodiac, it means one thing: things are going to start to look up for those of you who put in some effort. One of the things I learned when I spent time with First Nations Elders, they always hammered this one rule: The Spiritual world is always ready to help us but they can only help us halfway, they can only help those who decide to help themselves first.
