2017 Sagittarius Horoscope – Daily and Yearly
On This Page
For you, Sagittarius, 2017 will prove to be an extremely illuminating one – one from which you’ll benefit for many years to come. However, as you’re living it out, it may seem that you encounter nothing but obstacles and frustration. This may not sound a formula for happiness, achievement and fulfilment. But the fact is that those obstacles will force you to examine both existing situations and habits, some of which hamper you or which prevent you from recognising what’s best in your life, the full spectrum of your potential and even opportunities.
One of your greatest gifts, as a Sagittarius, is your energy and your zest for life. Whenever something interests you, you’ll waste no time on pointless questions, but seize the moment. You’ll move swiftly. Yet that also means you won’t necessarily analyse the situation or the individuals involved in depth. If you did, you simply wouldn’t have time to achieve all that you do.
Yet, during 2017, not only will you need to conduct such an analysis, in some cases you’ll need to focus in depth, going back to think about how events or situations started and considering what you had to deal with in the past. This variety of reflection may run counter to your character, but it should also enable you to clear up situations that have been a burden or the source of persistent problems. Better yet, as a result of your efforts, you’ll also spot those areas in your character that might be termed ‘blind spots’. These are those issues or situations in which you simply refuse to recognise that problems exist.
Gradually this process of reflection, combined with certain events during the year that shake up elements of your life that had seemed stable, enables you to view life from a very different perspective. There won’t be any single event that could be regarded as a turning point. Rather, during the year your ruling planet, Jupiter, forms a series of aspects to the planets that influence the structure of your life and your perspective about the world – Neptune, Uranus and Saturn. This leads to events that not only shift your day-to-day existence, but some developments open up new avenues of activities, in some cases, opportunities beyond anything you would have considered possible or even imagined.
That, coupled with the year’s eclipses, in mid-March and September, which cross the angles of your chart that have to do with the structure of your life, indicate the potential not merely for change, but for a shift in circumstances that would lead to a reorganisation far beyond anything you would have conceived of – or, in fact, would have been possible when the year began.
With your ruling planet, Jupiter, positioned in the most strategic and reflective angle of your chart until 24 November, there’s an emphasis on exactly the kind of self-analysis that you avoid like the plague. But this is well timed: 2017 is all about undoing certain commitments that aren’t merely restrictive, but are the result of either others’ manipulations of you or your own doubts. While facing these issues may not be fun, what you learn will free you from issues or doubts you didn’t even realise you had.
Perhaps the most important thing to keep in mind, however, is that you’re unlikely to be in a position to make commitments about the future until the end of the year. As the year begins, that may seem forever. But you learn and, most of all, the burdens you relinquish during the year will free you to such an extent that by the year’s close, life, your options and even your sense of identity will all have grown beyond what you would have imagined possible.
Perhaps the most important planetary events from your point of view take place late in the year. First, as your ruling planet, Jupiter, leaves the most sensitive angle of your chart on 24 November, it moves into Sagittarius for a year-long stay. This is followed about a week later by the arrival of Mars, the planet of ego and energy, also into your sign, where it remains in Sagittarius until early 2007.
These, combined with the Sagittarius new moon, on 20 December, indicate nothing less than a fresh start. By then, you’ll have spotted and, hopefully, eliminated any burdens from the past, exchanging these for new plans and activities. These will gladden your heart, make your spirits soar and allow you to achieve goals that you had begun to think were beyond your reach.
View 2017 as a year both of preparation and of education. And while it may seem that you’re no closer to those cherished goals during the year itself, you’ll realise that you’re preparing for what will be one of the best years of your life.
Sagittarius the archer
November 23rd To December 21st
The horoscope Sagittarius sign is the Ninth Sign of the zodiac and is symbolized by the Archer, a creature called a centaur which is half man and half horse.
The centaurs were renowned for their wisdom but when they drank they got really mean. Chiron was the oldest and the wisest centaur of all. He was taken in and educated by the gods. After learning all he could, Chiron decided to share his knowledge and tutored the great heroes of Greece. Among his students were Achilles, Acteon, Jason and Hercules.
In a tragic accident, Chiron was wounded with a poisoned arrow by his student and friend, Hercules. Because he was immortal, his wounds only caused him great agony. Chiron gave up his immortality to Prometheus.
To honor Chiron, Zeus set Chiron’s image in the night sky. This is the constellation Sagittarius. The Archer’s arrow is known as the arrow of truth. In mythology Sagittarius was the son of Saturn and Plyilyra who changed himself into a horse to escape his jealous wife Rhea.
Sagittarius is ruled by the Ninth House, which is the House of Religion, Foreign Travel, Higher Education and Philosophy. Along with Pisces, they are also ruled by the Twelfth House, which is the House of Secrets, Sorrows, and Self Destruction. They are the third of the Fire Signs and being one of the Mutable Signs, they are adaptable, balanced and are creative. Jupiter is their ruling planet and it is the planet of optimism, good luck, the higher mind, growth expansion, generosity, honesty, an enthusiasm for new experiences and their freedom and independence to enjoy all of these things. This sign represents wisdom, philosophy and traveling to far off and exotic places.
Sagittarius Traits and Sagittarius Personality
They are cheerful and extroverted with a delightful sense of humor and fun to be around. Sagittarians are not jealous or possessive and they make friends easily. They will always help out their friends without expecting anything in return. While there is not a deceitful bone in their body, they are quite blunt. They are not malicious or vindictive, they just don’t know of any other way to put things..
These people are all about higher learning and to them knowledge is understanding the world. They illustrate the Mutable Quality given to them because they want the freedom to do as they please with an inclination to be spontaneous and autonomous. At times they can be impatient and procrastinate but they are honest, dependable and very charming. Sagittarians don’t want to sit around and read about life, they want to experience life and what it has to offer. They love to learn first hand.
Sagittarians are often religious with a deep morality but will worship the beliefs and ideals they have about God more than the actual worshiping of God Himself.
Because they have a need to understand new ideas and concepts, they are naturals at being researchers and excel in this field. They also make excellent teachers and philosophers.
In personal relationships, Sagittarians have a hard time showing affection and will often make their careers more important than their families. If they get married they make faithful spouses. They rarely let difficulties get them down and with their cheerful optimism believe in the future. They continuously search for the truth but sometimes their optimism keeps them from seeing reality. Because good luck is usually on their side, Sagittarians have an irresistible urge to gamble which could lead to disaster. They love to take risks because they see life as an adventure.

Sagittarius Birthstone / December Birthstone
A Sagittarius Sun often make great friends in a social setting, and are often quite funny and well liked. Optimism is common with people of these placements. With a high degree of independence, these folks do not like to be tied down. They would far rather have the freedom to explore the world, or at least the world around them, and learn all they can. Each relationship is a learning experience, as is each situation they meet in life, as long as they do not let their own sense of dogma to cloud their opinions.
With this placement, it is important to know that the Sagittarian Sun, especially when Mercury is in Sagittarius as well, often does not use tact in his or her communications. While they can often be relied upon to tell the truth, the truth is not candy coated with savoir-faire. In fact, the Sagittarian can be down right rude, albeit accidental in nature. Another important point is that some with the Sun in Sagittarius can become full of zeal when it comes to their spiritual beliefs. With a hard placement for the Sun in Sagittarius, these folks can be so involved with their personal truth, it can blind them from accepting that other people may have a different faith from theirs. While they want the freedom to believe whatever they choose, if shortsighted they will not extend this freedom to conflicting opinions.
