Venus in Sagittarius

January 2019 Monthly Forecast


By Rubys Readings
For All Zodiac Signs 



At least 2018 ended on more of a quiet note astrologically. But January is going to be complex as it starts off with a Solar and Lunar Eclipse. And passionate Mars just entered in its own sign of fiery Aries on the last day of 2018, where it feels at home, so its power is boosted by this influence. This can have us feeling more spontaneous, forward-thinking, and even courageous during its run! There’s a competitive spirit in the air and our goal is to win! So take it easy and make sure to slow yourself down from time to time, and check yourself about what you’re actually doing. Avoid being overly impulsive or you can make mistakes or get involved in accidents during Mars transit in the sign of Aries.



Mental Mercury enters more stable Capricorn on the 5th of January, and this slows down the way we process information, as our thinking becomesmore methodical. We tend to be more focused, sober, and practical during this time. One trait we certainly can use is how much easier it is to concentrate ontasks at hand under this influence. Conversations are more realistic and focused, especially on business and more practical matters. People seem to have more sound reasoning skills, but we must be careful about being narrow-minded, cold, cut-off, and not having a sense of humor at least every once in awhile. 



The Solar Eclipse/New Moon in Capricorn also occurs on January 5th, and it is between the planets Saturn and Pluto. This New Moon Eclipse is unusual since the Sun and Moon are surrounded by Mercury, Saturn, and Pluto. This Capricorn Stellium as its called has more power with the Moon’s South Node, which means old ways, and patterns of behavior may come up. This is a complicated New Moon, with all these different influences at play. Even though conservative Capricorn might want things to be more constructive. But at least we value the importance that things take time under these influences, which helps us to be more patient in most any situation. Saturn rules Capricorn and is often thought to rule over time! 



The planet Uranus the “divine messenger” of the Cosmos turns direct on January 6th after five months of being in Retrograde, and what a time this was. This planet affects us so strongly, so it’s really worth learning where it is placed in your own personal Birth Chart and where it is cruising through your Chart now! As Uranus gains speed in the coming weeks ahead, our urge to express ourselves in a more creative and unique way becomes more evident. It’s a time to take some chances or risks and for rebellion. We are going to be able once again to listen to your own instincts, but we also can stir up some serious changes that re-awaken us on a deep level. We now will begin to see more clearly, so we can make necessary changes for ourselves and the world, and we won’t be just sitting around waiting to play victim while changes are suddenly thrust upon us, so we feel like we have some more control. The only issues are Uranus remains in hot-headed Aries through March time and that will continue to spark us up and cause lots of interesting changes and crazy weather as well. 



Venus the planet of Love and often associated with money will move into the sign of enthusiastic Sagittarius on January 7th. This is a strong romantic energy that shifts us from feeling intense to cheerful and lively! This Sagittarius influence, of course, has its own intense feeling moments, considering it is a Fire Sign. But this energy is just way less focused then what we’ve been dealing with during Venus in Scorpios time, which had us way more focused on intimacy with just one person. Hopefully, you have learned more about the folks in your life and discovered who you can trust, now you will be ready for this new Sagittarius love fest energy to come in and meet new people and seek out more fun experiences. Sagittarian love or energy for all of us is way more open and free, it’s a universal kind of love, it’s a free for all! So you will be free for a while to love anyone and everyone from this earthly plane and beyond. Enjoy it while it lasts, lots of boundaries are going to be crossed while Venus is in Sagittarius! Venus will be in Sagittarius until February 3rd.



On Jan. 13th, excitable Jupiter forms a tense connection to foggy Neptune, this is the first in a set of three meetings, with the other two happening in June and September, and this can cause struggles with our expectations, faith, and dreams.  We may be deceived more easily under this influence, whether by others or just our own unrealistic or high expectations. We may have to deal with certain consequences that come from being disorganized, extravagant, neglectful, or from some sort of exaggeration. This tends to make folks feel more restless, and routines are not as satisfying. This is a time when we can take a break or maybe detoured from our more practical paths into something much different, so pay attention folks! We are more easily disillusioned by something or even someone, so we need to be more careful about ignoring things altogether, only to later start justifying some sort of new opinion, belief, or philosophy for our behavior just to avoid certain situations or responsibilities. There also will be a lot more wandering, as it can be hard to feel grounded while this is in play for the week of Jan 13th and then again later on in June and September. We also might have issues with setting healthy boundaries for ourselves. There will be a need to ground ourselves back to Earth! If we can stick to certain routines, and remain more disciplined than those set rhythms can help counteract this tendency. Spiritual inspiration is also strong because we can let go of old false beliefs, expectations, and behaviors.


Also around this time, Jupiter is forming a challenging connection to rebellious Uranus, which just reinforces our feelings of restlessness if our dreams are no longer fulfilling us or are not a source of inspiration anymore. This is a time where we go out on little adventures that are totally impractical or unusual tangents, only to realize we can’t finish what we want, there’s not a lot of staying power under this influence. 



The Full Moon occurs on Monday, January 21, 2019, in the very first degree of Leo and it’s also a Total Lunar Eclipse. This is about achieving something! There will be a stronger sense of urgency, that’s exciting and it can make us feel somewhat anxious. This can cause us to feel a crisis around lack, it’s a time when we suddenly might realize there is a greater need or want when matters seem to come to light that has been beneath the surface. The Full Moon is a time of truth and this means we have a stronger desire to gain knowledge, but couple that with the Eclipses intensity and this makes for a highly charged up energy. With the Full Moon in the sign of dramatic Leo, we get an opportunity to tap into our pride, as our instincts around survival are stronger than usual, so we tend to be more observant of others. We value others opinions and know our reputation is important during this time. There is also a challenging connection between game-charger Uranus, the planet of uncertainty, which can cause rebellious behavior but this energy also brings about change and opportunity.


The Full Moon each month is always a good time to bring back some sort of balance in your life, as it magnifies already existing problems to sort through, which is why folks feel so highly emotional during a Full Moon! During January’s Full Moon the Sun in Aquarius will just have started and will meet up with the Moon in Leo, so we are working on striking a balance between focusing on our personal pleasures and our need to help our community. This is a time of enlightenment that brings an opportunity to explore our emotional needs, which can lead to positive actions and decisions. Full Moons also raise our awareness around the little flaws in our romantic relationships, and often in our relationships with our children. So there can be a sense of urgency or sudden need or desire to express ourselves, it’s a strong compulsion to come to a resolution of a problem. This is a time when there are often final word or decisions made.



With mental Mercury entering the sign of Aquarius on January 24th certain situations become more impersonal, as our minds are more capable and help us move through our earthly routines and patterns. This will also help us to better process our feelings that are a direct result from problems that have occurred during the past month or so, especially around relationships and the Eclipse energies. This energy helps us to mentally detach long enough to take care of business and rectify any damaging problems we have been involved in if we can get our head out of the clouds long enough to focus. Remember under this energy reality is sometimes blurred a bit if we don’t keep our feet on the ground. But we also can experience waves of Ah-Ha moments and epiphanies that can be full of some amazing stuff! So pay attention, and write your thoughts and feelings down often during this time.



On the 31st of January, another outer planet is making a strong meeting that influences us through much of 2019! Saturn makes a rather harmonious connection to dreamy Neptune, in what’s called a sextile. With Saturn’s discipline bringing structure or meaning to our dreams and ideals this can be the stuff dreams are made of! Neptune brings in the energy of acceptance and devotion which can help bring new meaning to our work, traditions, and customs. This makes it easier to enjoy a feeling a sense of purpose in our lives, we feel more spiritual plugged in and like our material world is harmonizing together with our spirit. Our attitude and circumstances just happen to help us follow through on our dreams and turn our visions and ideals into reality! This influence helps us to combine our imaginations and effort which can bring about success. There can be a stronger sense that our dreams can be a reality, and therefore, we can build a stronger faith and acceptance into our world.



It’s an interesting New Year and New Month ahead folks, enjoy it, there is a real opportunity this year to make more positive changes in your life, so go make things happen!

“Venus in Sagittarius”

81dcb4fb844488a0b18f5eb416ea5878

Venus will shift and join Mercury and the Sun in Sagittarius on Saturday.

Venus rules over what we value, love, and often our money. Under joyous Sagittarius, we all can feel (no matter what Zodiac sign), like enjoying ourselves, as we have much more courage to play! We also find ourselves feeling much more appreciative of the opportunities that seem to show up, no matter how big or small. Being under this over the top energy we tend to share much more of ourselves with others, and our mentality leans more towards sharing.

Venus can be quite lucky in Sagittarius, as this influence allows doors to open in the areas of love, relationships, and around finances. Hearts are open wide and possibilities for money is strong. However, (in the cosmos there is always a, however, lol) we can see what comes in go out just as quickly if we aren’t careful with how much we decide to spend or how much energy or love we give out, if we don’t pay attention to what we are not getting back. It’s an important time to show gratitude for what you do have and to take nothing you get for granted as the small things seem to just show up!

Over the next month, enjoy the love and gifts this aspect provides without any expectations of what you can get out of it, that’s a big no-no under Sagittarius energy, as this can be somewhat of a confusing time due to Mercury just entering its Retrograde cycle. While Venus is in this sign, she is excited to share love and good feeling vibes in one moment but can be done with it all in a heartbeat. Because this energy makes us feel more distracted by what is fun in the moment than think about the details and the long-term. This is NOT a time to get attached folks, to create rules in your relationships, or to try and restrict anyone into what it is you want from them down the road, it’s not going to work out that way! It’s more a time to see what your options are and what’s readily available.

If you are currently in a relationship this placement can help you if you learn how to play hard to get and be more of a tease. Leave some mystery to your partner to enjoy and figure out, but not for too long of a time, think about living in the moment and just have fun! And remember, if you set things free and it comes back, well that doesn’t always mean it was meant to be, but watch other people’s actions as that can speak way more than words during this time,

Venus in Sagittarius can also have us desire way more than what we are getting or receiving, while others may be more attracted to what’s all shiny and new and still feel unsatisfied. Remember it’s usually the thought that counts, but getting what’s fair is a big deal under this influence. We seek out the truth under this energy and are more interested in the knowledge of what’s hidden or behind the gifts we do receive, as this energy doesn’t help us to trust others very well, unfortunately. Jumping to conclusions is an issue already with mental Mercury in Sagittarius, as any assumptions you make can just be problems later. Therefore, it’s important to listen, there is so much to learn on this exciting journey! Love today like there’s no tomorrow!

Just remember this path may not be so clear over this next week or so as Neptune casts a heavy fog over our minds as it connects to both Mercury in Retrograde and Venus! It may be difficult to see what lies ahead, as the energy feels almost dream-like. It’s not all bad though, as this will force us to use our other senses, so we can trust our own intuition and follow our gut instincts which can help us work on trusting ourselves more.

Venus in Sagittarius

Venus is the planet that influences our relationships and often our financial well-being. Venus manifests all aspects of love, money, and worth in our lives. The planet of LOVE is now shifting from soul-searching Scorpio into more optimistic Sagittarius starting October 18th through November 11th. From my vantage point, there’s been a lot of couples breaking up lately because our relationships have been put under a giant magnifying glass while Venus was in Scorpio, over this last month. During that time were led to a strong desire to investigate our close intimate relationships, so we could better understand our partners, and probably have learned some interesting things, and for some folks that meant it was time to move on.

As loving Venus shifts from Scorpio to Sagittarius, our romantic encounters shift as well, from being intense to more light-heartened. Venus in Sagittarius is also intense at times since it is a fire sign. This energy is very blunt and to the point, so we have a much more straightforward approach to love and relationships. This is all about feeling love as a whole on a universal level. We are searching for an adventure in love, instead of worrying about our partner’s possible deceit or betrayal, we can relax and be more open-minded, outgoing, energetic, and free. Freedom becomes extremely important in our relationships during this cycle, but our overall attitude towards love is more enthusiastic and hopeful. If anything gets too intense now we seriously can get to down and actually split.

We might experience some sort of sexual liberation while Venus is in Sagittarius, as our walls come down and we are better able to express our sexuality, we are more natural and organic. So we can come on rather strongly to those we love or are interested in. This energy is full of philosophies and ideas, we are looking for others that hold the same truths or beliefs as we do in love. If you’re single, you might become focused on meeting those that share the same spiritual or religious beliefs as you. We’re looking for something exotic and full of adventure in our relationships now, and new relationships will be formed in the most interesting ways during this transition. Venus in Sagittarius energy puts us on a quest for enlightenment in our relationships, as we look to share our beliefs with a partner. This energy can have us exploring our own spirituality, philosophies, and all that is magical within. This means we tend to get very passionate about our beliefs in love and marriage. Many couples will travel and try new things during this time. It can be a wild and crazy time in partnerships, all in the name of love and fun. This energy is about spiritual enlightenment and connecting to one’s higher self, so, of course, you may look for that in a Soul Mate. However, we should be careful to not get overly dogmatic or judgmental while in this energy, especially around what we perceive as others lack in morality.

Venus in Sagittarius energy is all about having fun, it’s an attitude, and relationships are much more light-hearted, optimistic, and adventurous. And for all you single folks, dating can be the same way. Loads of fun! Besides, we are more interested in taking care of business and having a good time, than being burdened down by complicated emotions. It seemingly is just a waste of time, and being upset or sad in our relationships is the exact opposite of fun and a big no-no in this energy. However, we can have too high expectations in any relationship really, and if they fall short, we may end up leaving quickly without much explanation. So think before you make anything permanent during this time.

Venus in Sagittarius energy spreads around a whole lot of laughter and joy because its influence can have us feeling goofy and often raises our vibrational energy, so our sense of humor is aroused. This energy basically just wants us to get the party started, and have an amazing time. So dating can be a whole lot of fun now. Some of you might have a difficult time with sleep during this cycle because our minds are restless and our spirits are traveling out of our bodies into other dimensions, so we can have some amazing dreams.

The shadow side of this energy is we can feel more restless and have difficulty keeping settled down. Our attitude shifts to a more optimistic place, but we can feel “the grass is greener on the other side of the fence”, which means we can start searching for something better in intimate relationships. So be careful not to break promises or commitments to your partners and end up cheating emotionally or otherwise. Also if we get upset with relationship issues or feel backed into a corner, this fiery Sagittarius energy can have us come out swinging, our words can be harsh and even brutal. So try really hard to think before you speak from an emotional place.

Venus moves into Sagittarius

Astro Alert 
Venus in Sagittarius
December 30th – January 23rd

The planet Venus rules over our relationships and often our money, it changes signs from seductive, soul searching Scorpio into adventurous, quick moving Sagittarius early today. This helps us to feel more social again after being hidden in deeper, sensual Scorpio for awhile now. So get ready the adventures in love begin now, this isn’t just about our relationships with lovers or partners, it’s also about the relationship you have with yourself. How exciting has your life been?… well it certainly can pick up the pace now as this energy can help you to really enjoy life again if you choose to explore your passions and take some risks. We’re more inclined to connect to people that are different from ourselves, people with different backgrounds and upbringing. We’re off to explore new things, so if you’re single…dating can get very interesting during this time. We are looking for an adventure in our love life and in social settings with others. This energy is hot…with Sagittarius being a fire sign. It can be downright exotic! Whew, make it fun!

With Venus in Sagittarius we are more then willing to take some risks with others, and we can express ourselves and what’s on our mind quite bluntly too! Be careful to think before you speak over these next three and half weeks. Yes, keeping our mouths shut seems to be the theme this week, even though most will have difficulty with it. But Sagittarius energy is very to the point, and we can easily say what’s on our mind and hurt others feelings, when that really isn’t our intention, so think about what your going to say before you communicate or express yourself.

We need to somehow have an adventure with our partners or ourselves… so maybe take a trip, as getting away from our normal everyday rountines can help us heal and feel better about our life, and open our hearts and minds. Sagittarius energy is very spiritual actually and can help us also learn how to connect again to our spirit and the Universe, so that’s another way to gain a new perspective… just by going through your heart, just close your eyes and get connected again to your spirit and feel the energy and the possibilities! Get out there and explore life with Venus in Sagittarius, it can be just the breath of fresh air you’ve been needing. ~Ruby
