Your path through each year is largely guided by Jupiter, which is the ruler of your sign.
Sagittarius is synonymous with the big picture. Details and small matters don't count much with you. Your astrological cycles are large and generous. All year, in a variety of ways, liberation, freedom and independence rise and fall as themes for development. This applies to us all, but in particular to Sagittarians.
You are naturally free-spirited and adventurous, and always full of hope. Move those beautiful characteristics up a notch or two, and you'll expand into a radical kind of wisdom and understanding.
A key theme throughout the year is your need to live, think and act independently. Whatever is preventing you for living out this independence can be attended to in 2009. It will be twelve years before you have another chance like this.
As the one who prepared this forecast, I like to hear about how it works out. As the year goes by I would love to hear about your experiences in relation to the possibilities that I have calculated for you. My email address is email@example.com.
JANUARY to SEPTEMBER
A sense of being at a crossroads began last year, and it intensifies in 2009. You need to make an important life decision. One road leads back to the conventional, familiar and well-known.
The other road winds away in the opposite direction, into new and intriguing places. The ideal solution is to integrate these two options, and thus find a way to gain the best of both worlds.
5 January Jupiter in Aquarius
Jupiter has spent just over a year in Capricorn, but that is over now, and a new cycle begins. It is already fully described above, and will continue until September 2010.
Dates to watch 24 May to 24 December Jupiter and Neptune meet
These two planets come together roughly every fourteen years. Throughout history this combination seldom lasts for as long as it does this year. In partnership, these two planets create an expansion of spiritual influence.
This year brings fresh spiritual awakening for a large portion of the population. Many radical new thoughts and approaches to spirituality and its sources arise. Because Jupiter is one of the planets involved, and its your ruling planet, you have no option but to be part of it.
JUNE to OCTOBER
Dates to watch 15 June to 13 October
Jupiter retrograde at 27° Aquarius : A retrograde always means there's a backtracking happening.
A re-envisioning of the expanses of the spiritual environment, as you see it, is your main goal for these four months. If you're stuck in traditional beliefs this is going to be hard.
Dates to watch 16 November to 5 December Mercury in Sagittarius
This is a helpful development. Mercury in your sign is a boost to open-mindedness and big thinking. Explore ideas. Allow a new philosophy of life to unfold.
Dates to watch Last half of November and first half of December
It's been an interesting year, and during this time, things begin to fall into place. You begin to understand how, like a vast matrix, the pieces fit together. It would be good to take a journey to a foreign place now.
Breaking away from what is familiar will deepen this important process. You don't need to leave the country. There are "foreign places" in your town.
Dates to watch 22 November to 21 December Sun in Sagittarius
Your birthday month is a continuation of the one overwhelming theme mentioned here, over and over.
Dissolve the boundaries of your mind and your spirit, and spread your arms towards infinity.
Dates to watch 2 December to 25 December Venus in Sagittarius
On the strange and different kind of journey that 2009 has been, you encounter other travellers now.
You're not alone anymore. You'll discover that friendships with like-minded people have been forged, and best of all, many Sagittarians will also find love.
