Happy Birthdays, Sagittarians!
Dec 8, 1978 Sagittarian Ian Somerhalder has a four planets stellium in Sagittarius, Mercury, Sun, Neptune, Mars. He is a Chinese Earth Horse and Sagittarius rules horses! He has Moon in Aries in a Grand Fire Trine with Jupiter and Mercury, Sun sextile Pluto and the planet of fame with the masses at his Midheaven! If his parents had asked me could he be famous, I would have said yes!
Those intense looks? Genetically a Cajun (French), English, and Scots-Irish combo. Astrologically, Sun sextile Pluto, the planet of the darkside and resurrection, certainly is part of it too. His fame is for playing Boone Carlyle in the hit TV show Lost, and, of course, Vampire Damon Salvatore, of the television drama The Vampire Diaries!
He is an animal lover. Saturn in Virgo makes him feel super responsible in their behalf. Born and raised in Covington LA, Somerhalder helped with cleanup after the Deepwater Horizon oil drilling disaster on April 22, 2010. He cleaned oiled wildlife and taped public service announcements to let the public know how they could help. Somerhalder also supports the St. Tammany Humane Society, an organization for animal shelter and welfare. His Ian Somerhalder Foundation was launched on December 8, 2010. He hopes it will educate people on the importance of protecting the environment and animals. He opposes GMO foods and factory farming, and supports visionary ecologist Allan Savory.
Somerhalder also supports the It Gets Better Project, which makes it a goal to prevent suicide among LGBT youth.
He loves water and snow skiing and, no surprise, horseback riding, fast and dangerous, Perfect Sag/Pluto combination. He also spends a lot of his time studying acting, reading, writing and practicing yoga. Ian didn’t graduate high school because he traveled to Europe to pursue his modeling career. He recently married May 17, 1988 Taurus, dark haired beauty, actress Nikki Reed.

Outer Planets with Sagittarius 2015 to 2016!
Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and Capricorn, is a sextile sign, an earth and water mix. Affinity and opportunity. Fire sign Sagittarius is right in the middle of Scorpio and Capricorn. Scorpio is a fixed sign and Capricorn often goes by the book. Sagittarius is a mutable sign born to wander and even the two of them can’t keep Sag from going its way. Sag has his own ideas gleaned from a wider range than the other two. They may close the doors and ranks, but Sag is cheerful and will find others more willing if necessary. However, Saturn, Capricorn’s planet is now in Sagittarius, so there may be recognition and a productive alliance after all! Sag wants to tell all and can be blunt, so Pluto needs to be very careful how much is divulged. Capricorn wants it to be a timely announcement; Sag is known to jump the gun out of sheer happiness! Things from the past may be important seeds, motives may be key. Sagittarius may be able to open the door and release them!
Neptune is in its own sign, just before mid Pisces, still hasn’t reached the hump point, is still finding its way. It is a water Planet in a water sign seeking a deeper side of life. There is an affinity with Sagittarius the Seeker. They are both Mutable in nature, go with the flow, often noncommittal, free to see. Insights and visionary. Pisces dreams, Sag wanders. Sag is fiery, spirited, usually social. Pisces often likes solitude and quiet. So allow each other time for their needs. While Sag is exploring, pathfinding, leading the tour, Pisces can meditate or go off to sea. If there is a concert in the offing, they can go play together!
Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Aries, the Warrior, recognizes a fellow adventurer! No one knows who will go first! They both are willing to stand for a cause, Aries to protest perhaps, Sag to inform and spread the word. Though both are ‘compatible’ in fire signs, they each may go their own way pretty quickly, amicably. Neither feels particularly bound to long stands. Aries is like a spark, instantly impelled by ideas, intuition driven! Sagittarius simply needs room, wants to see all there is to see. Each has little fear. Aries is quick on its feet right here, right now! Sag is charmed with goodwill, recognized as a traveler, sometimes a storyteller bringing information everyone wants to hear.
Chiron is also in Pisces, starting the last half of the sign. Chiron was the king of the Centaurs, and Sagittarius is the sign of the Centaurs! Centaurs were known to be fun lovers, charging around from one party to the next, getting in trouble! In Pisces that would be concert to concert or surfing worldwide at the drop of a hat! Sagittarius has a vibrant sense of humor, guaranteed to make you smile! Magi astrologers say Chiron is the number one marriage factor and great at business! But Sag is not necessarily marriage motivated. If it is an import/export business, especially involving ocean trips, the two of these may work well together. One shops, the other runs the store! Write off those travel expenses and have the most remarkable inventory! Chiron in Pisces has its own authority in the mystical healing business. Sagittarius may bring healing gems from other places, herbs and tonics, that intrigue Chiron. They may touch and go, meet again from time to time, Sagittarius telling Chiron’s story along the Way.
Saturn is still finding its walking feet in Sagittarius, only at 6 degrees as we enter Sagittarius 2015. It will make mid Sag in 2016! Factors in your chart from 6 to 16 degrees will be activated one after the other. This will be Saturn Return time for those of you with Saturns in Sag from 6 to 16 degrees. It’s important because Saturn Returns happen only every 28/29 years. Some happen only once, others happen 3 times in a year. Some seem to have little effect, just a touch and go. Others are felt to the very roots of your Soul, with profound events occurring. Saturn rules Fathers, business, our reputations, long term or important commitments, health matters particularly involve skin, bones, knees, joints, aging. Sagittarius is our Liver, hips & thighs, big muscles, excess weight, sciatica. Take it easy with horses. Work needs to be more meaningful, and may require some compromise to keep you from running away. Be cautious about making commitments during these three years 2015-17 that are not of your usual natural nature, or know that the commitment might be a 3 year or less commitment.
Jupiter in Virgo is squaring Sagittarius, Jupiter’s own sign! It will go through the rest of Virgo by Sep 9, 2016! Earth and Fire, Virgo and Sagittarius, are both mutable. Jupiter in Virgo is not so changeable as Sagittarius though. Virgo wants its order and prefers changes that make systems more productive, sifting through ideas carefully so not to upset what they already have going. Sagittarius is generous and wants to share so many ideas with Virgo that it could be overwhelming. Quickly adaptable, Sagittarius wonders what could be taking so long, so keep them informed! You have to test things out. Fire is snappy, but Virgo is hard to rush, a perfectionist. That persistence can pay of with a super high quality product.
Even though Sagittarius is generally righteously healthy, Virgo will be asking Sag to mind their health. A little less food, better quality, the right kind, right time of day, and how about some healing herbs, vitamins? Oh, and are you getting good exercise? Do pace yourself at work. Jupiter in Virgo can be a good Samaritan, a daily life health care professional who works the details that make the difference!
Jupiter in Libra sextiles Sagittarius, Jupiter’s sign! So happy together! Partnership potential! Social businesses may flourish – public events, spas, resorts, dating services, social media, flowers, fine wines, restaurants, dancing, plays, concerts, symphonies especially! Lovely sporty fashions, especially for women. Beauty blesses, from faces to architecture, exotic cosmetics, especially perfumes, to design! Generous gifts, cultural grants, extensive travels, the anthropology scholarship, art museums! Personal relationships have mixed potential. Jupiter may not want to settle no matter how attractive the offer. Jupiter might be a little blunt or coarse for Libra’s taste. Or, it is the luckiest relationship ever made, financially lucrative, the utmost regard for each other, proud to have each other on their arms, sharing so many wonderful things!
Any of these factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologer for the whole picture!

Sagittarius, Knowledge and Wisdom!
This is particularly true this year, 2016 and 2017, since Saturn is in Sagittarius all three of these Sagittarian times! This is significant for Sagittarians since Saturn takes 28/29 years to return to a sign. Those of you born from Nov of ’85 to Nov of ’88, likely have Saturn in Sagittarius (due to a retrograde, check 1988 to see if you were born in a Sag time) and be having your first Saturn Returns in these current years. That’s when Saturn comes back to the exact same spot your birth chart Saturn was at. You born in ’56 to ’58, first week of ’59, do the same. If your Saturn is in Sag, you will be having your second Saturn Returns.
Sagittarius is considered to be the wise Solomon, and Saturn is the planet of Elders, wisdom through experience, seeing things for how they really are. Sagittarius is far seeing, known to win on a long shot. Saturn builds to stand securely to weather the winds of time, right here, right now. Sagittarius explores, brings back ideas, useful findings that Saturn incorporates into previous designs for an even better sustainable rendition. Saturn gleans the crux of Sag’s tale, gets right on it before Sag meanders off on another adventure.
Sagittarius is expert at sweeping for legends, myths, truths of the centuries. The meanings of things, how they link us all in the human experience, are gathered and retold. Campfires have always held the sharings, our thoughts, wonderings, the hunt for salvation. As travels are made, what’s universal becomes clear, we are human together. What’s important is clarified as the inconsequential falls away. We discover our gifts as we are welcomed along the journey. We get a sense of timing as we learn all to be learned for the time being at that location with those people and move on. We are able to be one with others more quickly when at times our life may depend on it. Profound.
Teaching is a natural gift. It starts as toddlers toddling around the yard. It often becomes the published work, whether your story or another’s. It fetches our imagination. If another can walk out the door, why not me?!? Inspirational tales of athletes who started clumsy, spiritual masters who had hard times and discordant difficulties, the breakthrough of an inventor or businessman’s genius idea, an artist, actor or writer who tried many times before succeeding! All stir our own sense of possibilities!
Optimism is a Sagittarian trademark! They can SEE beyond the current situation! Often the grass really IS greener! And fleet footed, you can almost outrun time itself! Sag is a Mutable sign. Forever seeking, if one direction doesn’t work or the potential fades or changes in a way you don’t prefer, simply change course! Just like that! Go with a different group or get out the map! Make your own map! This too will pass, and it does. Plus, Saturn is Father Time and he’s seen many a change, natural cycles.
Children born with Saturn in Sagittarius may seem wise beyond their years. They likely will have a deeper sense of responsibility than most, abiding ethics. Give them a wide range of things to learn. Let them befriend people who have exceptional skills and good hearts. Let them participate! Inspire them with stories of successful young people who succeed against challenging odds, heroes and heroines, yet don’t tax them with overwhelming expectations. Praise them every step of the way; notice their gentle progress as well as exciting shout outs!
During this 2015 Sagittarius Saturn will be at 6 to 10 degrees of Sag. 2016 it will be at 16 to 20 degrees. 2017 it will finish at 26 to 29, and on the next to last day of Sagittarius it will enter 0 Capricorn! Sagittarius and other mutable signs will likely be challenged ~ Gemini opposite, Virgo and Pisces square. Gemini will be held to a higher standard, to seek information from impeccable sources and deliver it in a timely fashion. Virgo, an earth sign, gets along with Saturn, the planet of earth sign Capricorn, but Sagittarius may bring distractions to Virgo’s work.
Saturn can seem cold to Pisces, and Sagittarius way too blunt to sensitive Pisces. No fooling around though; you Pisceans are being called to duty. This is emphasized by 2015’s last aspect Saturn square Neptune, the Pisces planet in Pisces!!! This square leads the way into 2016, by being the first of three. See More….
Other fire signs, Aries and Leo, and air signs Libra and Aquarius, may find themselves getting things done like they always wanted, synchronized to a T!
Sagittarians, the world needs your broad scope of knowledge. Please keep on giving us perspective, and the faith to act on it. Saturn brings a sometimes serious note to things, but also a profound practicality, a perfection of much needed good timing. With your sage guidance, together we can have powerful impact and build a better future. Saturn is dedicated to your cause and makes real gains.
