Happy Birthdays, Sagittarians!
Margaret Mead, a deeply respected and controversial Sagittarian woman anthropologist who carried the Light of the future! Dec 16, 1901, she had Mercury, Uranus and Sun in Sagittarius, with Jupiter, Sagittarius’s planet at her ASCendant! She was born to travel and inspire! Capricorn is strong in her chart, her love and respect of ancient wisdom. She spoke at the first Earth Day! Aquarius is strong in her chart, interest in groups of people of unique heritage, her part in changing the world. See her Chart.
In Samoa, Ms Mead studied growing up in different cultures, so called ‘primitive.’ She was the first anthropologist to look at human development in a cross-cultural perspective and refuted the thinking of the times. In New Guinea, she demonstrated that gender roles differed from one society to another. She was taught that the interconnection of all aspects of human life, ie the production of food cannot be separated from ritual and belief, and politics cannot be separated from childrearing or art. This holistic understanding allowed Mead to speak out on a very wide range of issues. She insisted that human diversity is a resource, not a handicap, that all human beings have the capacity to learn from and teach each other. She lived that principle when she was able to address the public, as author and speaker, with affection and respect.
Summing up the life of such a remarkable woman almost seems a sacrilege. But per the Institute for Intercultural Studies, that she founded: ‘Mead taught at a number of institutions, her long term professional base was at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. She authored some twenty books and coauthored an equal number. She was much honored in her lifetime, serving as president of major scientific associations, including the American Anthropological Association and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and she received 28 honorary doctorates. She was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom following her death in 1978. Her voluminous archives are now housed in the Library of Congress.’
Whether Mead was ‘right’ or ‘wrong,’ based on the authority of the remarkable experience of her work, she stirred up the thinking of the times and to this day her work is causing consternation and reassessing on many fronts. Being a woman, her sexuality, and doing some outrageous things, gave her work a spice factor that had to be talked about, average citizen to scientist! Well done, Meg.
Sagittarius 2014 Highlights!
Our New Moon is on November 22, the first day of Sagittarius! This New Moon will be the second of Five in a row that start their signs, 2014 Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn, and 2015 Aquarius and Pisces, all at ZERO degrees! The next day, Venus also enters Sagittarius.
Jupiter still remains in close square with Saturn through November 30.
There are only 2 outer planet events remaining in 2014. Dec 14 brings the sixth, NEXT TO LAST, Uranus square Pluto! Since it is in a retrograde to direct station, the aspect is held closely FOR 3 MONTHS, at about 1 degree, continuously until the final seventh aspect March 16, 2015!
The 2nd of the two 2014 outer planet sign changes is Dec 23 when Saturn goes into Sagittarius for the first time in 29 years!

Many a first attempt has been a youngster running away from home out of dissatisfaction! Surely there must be more, better. A lifetime’s journey, the great Mutation begins…. The urge to see more, learn, give of ourselves, makes us put on our traveling shoes. Hopefully, all turns out safe and well, usually does with those lucky Sagittarians. Consciousness is never the same after the sights that have been seen.
Sag’s robust and playful planet Jupiter just about guarantees health is radiant as the excitement of possibilities become apparent and are engaged! Our bodies and our lives stretch beyond our dreams. That was then, this is living the future! Yoga. Galloping horses on the steppes. Skating by the beach. Skiing with your hot breath steaming! Bathing in the Pamukkale hot springs in Turkey.
Fortunes are made as ventures are shared at a greater range, imports/exports embracing a generous potential of many peoples’ offerings, near and far. Might be publishing something so delicious like that travel cookbook. Could be selling Moroccan jewelry, gypsy and belly dance garb. A bestseller of your ashram experiences and philosophy, spiritual cures. A photographic journal of some exquisite faraway place few have been to.
Teachings are gifted, the result of rich assimilation of all kinds of fully engaged experiences, immersion in unique cultures. Our principles of life embrace a luxuriant range of thinking acquired over centuries of considerations, sometimes at ancient sites. At times our life is on the line, potently deepening our perspective, developing compassion. So many more options become possible. Our flex, adaptability increases. Curiosity and creation live together alive, responsive, proactive.
Fiery Spirituality, religious studies, learned masters are another endless search. Sometimes interrupted by fractures of time, needs of others, still the quest is forever inside us no matter where we go, or sit. Even when resting, recovering, we revision what was, vision the next keen quest. A great Master questions the questions.
Wiseman or cunning Jokester, there is a twinkle in the eye of a Soul that has seen suffering and come through, has been scared beyond reason, has seen such beauty it makes you cry. A laughing Soul finds our foibles delightful, unspokenly offers a challenge to tweak what we thought was cast in stone, and gets away with it! When called for, Solomon’s justice can be administered. Perspectives dance like a shimmering rainbow. Sagittarius’ brand of relativity, one step to another, leads us to conclusions that make more sense. And then there are those surprise endings of the well-told stories around the campfire!
Sagittarius expands the dimensions, lives in a bigger world! It all starts with one step and, hang on, it gains momentum!
