Work is all consuming but the fun comes mid-May with shocking fame and new connections. Lady Luck rewards you taking a gamble, so go for it, Sag! After buckling down under Saturn for so long, no need to be thrown now by your up and down of success: RIDE THAT WILD ROLLER COASTER.
It’s been so crazy in the skies, that a number of people have asked me if it’s Mercury Retrograde. Not only Mercury, but also Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto are retrograde. Mercury until May 3, your extraordinary ruler Jupiter until June 6, Saturn until August 25, and Pluto until September 28. Now you always rise above the fray. It’s just that the amount you give, and what you receive, is to be re-balanced. It’s been a little… ahem… uneven. To put it mildly. There you are, looking like a rock star, doing an awesome jazz riff off in the corner, and not getting the proper returns for you and for what you do. And people have been so difficult and ornery!
You are to be forgiven for looking into the past, but approaching now is the time for forgiving and letting go. Moving forward with your life. With your new self.
You are in a cocoon, and are ready to hatch.
And speaking of hatching…for long-term relationships, do be careful concerning love affairs and unplanned conceptions. If you’re trying for a baby, after mid-month is an excellent time to conceive.
For new affairs, it’s a time for passion, but not necessarily for long-term love.
Sagittarius will be blessed this May, and in all manner of ways — some completely unexpected! Prepare for bundles of joy, on all levels.
Now allow me to introduce you to your next super power! No pain, no gain. That’s Saturn doing its interesting, sometimes tricky, dance moves in your first house, in your sign. This affects your body and you in the world. AND what you’re thinking about most now – your hour upon the stage – Pallas in your fifth dramatic house. You are about to give birth to something entirely new.
Pallas is the asteroid that rules wisdom and choosing your battles. Born from your ruler Jupiter’s head, and Jupiter’s favorite child, her power is second only to her father.
Thus, next to the planet of luck, Jupiter, she has the greatest power in the entire pantheon. Many horoscopes totally ignore her. Go figure. She represents creativity, initiative, planning, cunning, and strategy.
Giver of the olive branch (to Athens), Pallas Athena prefers diplomacy to conflict. BUT she leads her warriors into battle when necessary AND she’s the goddess of carpenters. Legend says she’s the one who helped create the Trojan Horse. Talk about planning and strategy in battle! That huge wooden horse which so delighted and intrigued the enemy they allowed it into their city. And we know what happened next…
Think back to 2004, what was going on concerning the areas of your being in the world, your performance, creativity, and the perception of you. Afterwards became a time for caution in your dealings with and judgments of persons, places, and things that felt alien to you. You have learned a lot since then. Enough so that you really should never have to learn these lessons again.
This May – and this is very, very important, Sag! – you seem to be learning the final lesson you need to learn about opening your mind to other approaches, and other ways of thinking. Thinking outside the box. Thinking outside yourself, in that same old, same old way.
The excellent news is that, with some good cunning (think how the Trojan horse got let into the city) and some sharp insights from others, and with having absolutely reached your limit – as in I can’t take this a second longer – you get it. You have your strategy.
You tricked your greatest opponent (and this could very well be a part of you (that has allowed this horrible situation to continue for as long as it has) and you win your battle. You take over the enemy city.
Sometimes, it can mean getting out of your own way. Sometimes it means tricking yourself. As in tricking an ancient behavior or hidden psychology that makes you do stuff that isn’t good for you or doesn’t make you happy. (This has often been called therapy!)
The city you have to get into — with the cunning and strategy of a Trojan Horse — is — let’s call it, your First City.
You have to get in there and fix and battle — wisely — the obstacles to do with your body. You come up with new approaches. Brilliant you!
This will be your strongest point of healing, sweet Sag, over the next year.
What are your strategies for taking care of yourself here? How do you go after what you want? How do you handle the challenges?
Can you learn to use peaceful ways or do you need to go to battle? What form will your Trojan Horse take?
And whom do you have to trick? (It is most often old behavioral parts of ourselves. Nasty habits.)
Remember: you have Pallas Athena’s spectacular wisdom, strength, cunning, and will to help you heal this. And when you have, your sense of power and achievement — and happiness — will be extraordinary and triumphant.
And you will do it, Sagittarius. I know you will.
You’ve been juggling so many duties, jobs, and activities that you’ve barely had time to look up from the grindstone. But, just you wait, sweet Sag…Life gets a LOT more exciting as May gets seriously under way!
The full Scorpio Moon on Wednesday, May 10 takes place in your twelfth house and stirs it all up for the coming month. Your twelfth house covers: psychological renewal, your healing, your unconscious, your privacy, your solitude — and this May, it also affects how real you are about yourself. Particularly with those you love.
Now is not the time to day-dream about these things, but to make them happen. Engage in self-baring dialogue with your mate and best friend. You may not be sharing it with the world but I suspect you’re doing a fair bit of daydreaming about a certain exploration…
After mid-May unexpected invitations appear, and you are set to zoom off, typical Archer-style. (Don’t rule out the Scorpios.) You’ll have a blast!
And Sagittarius, it is finally SPRING! Spring has sprung!
Time for your own private session?

With love, Madalyn
