Finance and money is of vital importance to you throughout 2014. This is obvious from the cluster of five planets in your zone of income, along with Jupiter, Mars and Saturn also influencing this area. Money matters will be high on your agenda, especially in the first part of the year.
Saturn is your key planet this year, and it shows that economy is your primary key word. Although you may have the opportunity to earn a great deal of money, the secret is not so much what you earn as how much you save. This is the key to tapping your money making powers, or rather, curtailing your money spending powers!
Venus is also an important planet because it rules your zone of profitability, especially if you are in an independent business. We see that contracts and issues relating to your domestic and property situation will be of prime importance, especially between the 6th of March and the 3rd of May. Throughout this period, focus clearly on how you can cut back on expenses in these areas. Renegotiating your home loan and the terms of repayment are an excellent way to cut back on superfluous costs. You would be surprised by just how much you spend over the life term of a loan, but this can be modified to your advantage simply by talking to your bank manager and changing the terms of your home loan.
The issue of debt will come into clear focus throughout June when Venus moves into the sector of debts. Sometimes debt is necessary, and it can even be a source of profit. Having said that, you need to be extremely careful with your spending. Don’t for a minute think that what you hear on the grapevine is going to pay dividends. Verify it first with someone who is an expert.
From the 1st of August, Venus and Saturn, your two primary planets, indicate a steadying effect on your expenditure and a better opportunity for you to see what’s on offer. You will also have better luck after the 12th of August. Be careful, though, because you may become a little cocky and overconfident by the 27th of August, and this could undo a lot of the good that you’ve done in the earlier part of the year.
Venus returns to your zone of profitability on the 30th September. This also happens to be the zone relating to friendships and new acquaintances. You mustn’t waste a moment consolidating the opportunities that arise through your networking at this time.
On the 11th of December, Venus enters into your zone of income. It is at this time that you finally see the light and feel as if your efforts are paying off. Any business you enter into at this time should bring very good results.
I have already given you a few dates that will help you tap your money making powers, but let me give you some other important timings that can help you amass greater wealth, but also steer you away from troublesome negotiations.
There is an important eclipse on the 15th of April. At this time, information regarding friends and business associates may come to light, and this indicates a time when you may have to remove the dead wood from your business activities. There may be people who are weighting you down and it’s up to you to determine what extreme measures you may have to take to keep your business afloat and save face as well. Never allow others to use you.
You may be tired on the 24th of April, as shown by the right angle of Venus and the Sun. Pressures at home may distract you from the work at hand. Try to allocate enough time—and I mean quality time—to finish your work in a timely manner and with good results.
A couple of other important dates are the 23rd of June, when Venus enters your zone of business partnerships, and again on the 6th of September, when this same planet enters your professional sector. The first instance shows that you will make a favourable impression on others and create some new alliances. The power of these associations may not be evident until Venus moves into your tenth zone on the 6th of September, and their benefits will be seen after the 30th of September.
Working behind the scenes will be important between the 13th and the 17th of November. The combination of Venus and Saturn in the hidden part of your horoscope shows that you may need to do a lot of effective planning away from others. If you can focus your energies at this time, the results will be magnificent. On the 6th of March, and up until the 30th of March, there are indications that your negotiations may falter. Although you have opportunities to forge ahead professionally, the period between the 25th and the 30th of March shows that you may lack confidence or that your negotiation skills are not up to par. You need to carefully examine documentation and not feel intimidated by those who appear to have more power than you. Stand your ground, and don’t forget, a little posturing goes a long way.
Your creativity needs to be unleashed between the 3rd and the 20th of May. Venus moves to your zone of creativity, children and, to a large extent, speculation. Being creative means taking a bit of a gamble, Sagittarius! Don’t be afraid to share your ideas, especially if you are going into a meeting or interview situation. This is the sort of thing that will help you stand apart from the others.
Just before the 6th of September, Venus enters into a powerful aspect to the Sun. Exercising, paying more attention to grooming, and fashion will help you seize that moment if you are looking to improve your job prospects. Between the 6th and the 22nd of September you must put on a good show for others, but don’t wear yourself out. Your physical health is of vital importance at this time. Exercise, diet and get enough rest.
You have a final opportunity to throw your hat in the ring for a new position around the 17th of November, when Venus enters your Sun sign. This is a wonderful period when your charm and popularity will be at a peak. Of course, this will give you the edge over your competitors.
