Venus in Sagittarius - Faith in the Future

Our hearfelt sympathy and support for the community of Sandy Hook, Connecticut.
From the 17th December, 2012 Venus sets off at a canter through the fire lands of Sagittarius to scour for new sources of stimulation and enchantment after her intense sojourn through the watery depths of Scorpio. She would normally spend her time having a laugh, enjoying the festivities and buoying up who ever she greets throughout the holiday season until the 9th of January, 2013 when she will have a much more serious attitude in earthy Capricorn. However, the Sandy Hook, Connecticut community has not been allowed this celebration, right now the community is suffering indescribable pain and insurmountable grief after losing 28 lives, including the perpetrator, to unspeakable, tragic violence visited on them on the 14th December, 2012. 20 of those killed by the 20 year old gunman Adam Lanza, a member of this community, in one of America's worst mass shootings, were the ages of 6 and 7, little girls and boys in two kindergarten classes in what was previously, the 'safest town in America'. 
Venus has been quite intense in Scorpio for the past month and we have had to adjust to this way of being. The shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary took place while Venus was in Scorpio and yet no discussion of astrology aspects right now seem entirely appropriate or will reverse the situation or indeed bring about the only miracle this Christmas the grieving families of Sandy Hook will want. 
The Sagittarian centaur will take us forward and all of us need to believe and have some faith in a better future. It is still party season for so many of us, where the clown of the zodiac, Sagittarius normally likes us all to shine. Don’t be fooled though this sign is also a deep thinker and is always thinking well ahead of the game. Hunting out the good and chasing after the truth gets Sagittarius gears moving forward and Sagittarius loves a good run out, only made better with an ideal to aim for. A Sagittarius Venus will generously take us all along for the ride to admire all the amazing views and sharing the experience. 
Guru Paramahansa Yogananda has Venus in Sagittarius introduced many westerners to yoga and meditation.
'Live quietly in the moment and see the beauty of all before you. The future will take care of itself..'Bizarrely, Mother and 1st victim Nancy Lanza and Adam Lanza, lived on Yogananda Street, Newtown.

Nancy Lanza may have been a 'prepper' stockpiling food and guns she was preparing for the worst - 
TEOTWAWKI ('the end of the world as we know it') became a self fulling prophecy in this sad story.
Sagittarius will want us to apply our attention to the bigger picture and to what we know to be good and positive. With Venus the goddess of what we love here for a while, Sagittarius will urge us to reach out to the world, expand our perspective and if not actually be chasing a dream spending some time making a new one. It will want us to be brave and to explore what is important to us, what really matters, how we invest our time and what sort of future we want to put our faith in. Venus in Scorpio made sure we left no stone unturned in our surge for desire and to merge with those we love. She has been seductive and used highly persuasive methods to get what she wants. However, Sagittarius is now running the Venus ‘Love ‘n Money Show’ so if we need to dig out some heat-proof gloves because its 'showtime' and about to get hotter. Stop all that silent, mysterious sexy treatment, now is the time have it all open and out, fling the windows and doors wide and down the rabbit hole.
Writer Lewis Carroll has Venus in Sagittarius, best known for children's favorite Alice in Wonderland
We will all have this coming month where our relationships may get a bit more rowdy and bawdy. It will become that much more important to relate on an equal and honest basis. We may need to banish the darkness and demons by talking openly about them and then if all else fails metaphorically running after them with the Centaur's massive bow and arrow. Before we get too carried away with idealism, it may also be the case that we get much more tactless, insensitive and loud. It could all get a bit too much with just about everything, food, drink, revelry, honesty, blurting, buying, giving, singing, whatever. In keeping with the season, excess may end up being the name of the game or part of another adventure.
Writer Mark Twain has Venus in Sagittarius and wrote The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Venus likes to indulge anyway Venus Come Out Of Your Shell). Anointing the body, making it look, smell and feel really good is what she is about. Feeding the senses are another huge aspect of her delight as she adores beauty in all it's forms. Venus also has an innate appreciation of the finer things in life, art, culture and social interactions. Venus obviously desires relationships and everything concerned with them but she is surprisingly highly attuned to aspects of gaining, controlling and distributing money as well. Venus also view fairness with a sharp eye and puts it high on her list of needs. A run through our Venus list gives us an idea on just how fundamental and central Venus is to our lives. Love and Money is the name of her game and getting those two things sorted out will make most people feel that they have a good handle on life. Denying the need for money, the need for love or to deny the need for both is unusual.
Key to understanding what is going on for us is to look at where in ourselves we are ‘Sagittarius-attuned’. We all have degrees in our birth chart which looks out for any Sagittarius vibration, our personal Sagittarius antenna. It will be good to look at how smoothly the matters connected to our Sagittarius house and/or planets run and if they are functioning as well as they could an how we can set up improvements and find the real treasures.  
Writer robert Louis Stevenson has Venus in Sagittarius wrote the children adventure, Treasure Island
If you have Sagittarius spanning the 3rd house zone you may find your words have been falling like a hod of bricks or  in fact reaching a level of inspiration which may need to go global. All depends on what your goal may be, yet for this month it will be likely that your goal gets plural and becomes goals, or grows in size and becomes wide-sweeping, most probably both.
If your own Venus is in Sagittarius then you already keep the faith and now here it is your time so go for it. Welcome in new arrivals, people or money, this will be your time to have the ‘Wow factor’. 
If you are a Sun sign Sagittarius then hey, this is easy for you. Well yes up to a point because even a ‘yeah give it to me straight’ Sagittarius has its limits, finally and being kind and generous is a biggie that needs re-fuelling sometimes. However, your hearts desire for emotional freedom and companionship will get an extra boost and this month may be just the time for you to find exactly what you want.
Writer Khalil Gibran has Venus in Sagittarius wrote The Prophet
Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might
that His arrows may go swift and far. Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.
Over Christmas and New Year we recognise 'tis the season to be jolly' and the avuncular Santa Claus is the embodiment of Jupiter, the ruling planet of Sagittarius. Santa travels the whole world in one night, after all, he is overtly generous and lets out an all resounding all pervasive call for laughter 'Ho Ho Ho'! Let us all keep faith in the future and hope we will all feel the impulse to be generous, kind and loving. Whatever we believe, whoever we believe in, it is finally about how we behave towards one another. It is our humanity and our compassion that makes us heroes and gives us enough faith in the future to send those arrows of hopes and dreams towards the stars.

  1. What happened to "innocent until proven guilty"? Or has that gone the way of First Amendment, Fourth Amendment, and possibly soon, Second Amendment rights?

    What if Adam Lanza is the biggest VICTIM of all, the latest Lee Harvey Oswald? Or will the sheeple once again fall for the lone nutter shooter scam?

    Too much of this bathetic tale does not make sense, including an interview posted that morning by the Newtown Bee with the (deceased?)principal commenting on the shooting. It is also telling that Connecticut law enforcement is threatening tweeting dissenters and commenters with retaliation. Why?

    Interesting that the town is the residence of Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins. Hmmnn. Children Sacrificed for the Pleasure of the Elites!

    I hope Venus in Sagittarius and Saturn in Scorpio will help us dig for the truth, and not drown in a Neptune in Pisces sea of psy-ops emotions. Blond-haired blue-eyed children's deaths are tragic, but who cries for the Iraq, Afghanistan, Libyan, Palestinian little brown ones who are fire-bombed and taken out daily by drones?

    Have the chickens come home to roost?

    Meanwhile, it has never been more IMPORTANT for people to have the right to bear arms. Many dual-citizens are screaming for gun control, but back home in Israel, security-conscious teachers pack serious heat.

    Even Gandhi spoke passionately about the right of people TO DEFEND THEMSELVES.

    Don't be FOOLS!
