From Dec 2001*
Sun in Sagittarius focuses your attention on your publicly revealed knowledge and expertise, your professional preparation, your "rules for living," and the philosophical and ethical principles that govern your behavior.
Sun in Sagittarius Opposing Saturn in Gemini
The opposition from Saturn (when stressed, indicating inflexibility, rigidity, insensitivity, and "sticking to the letter of the law") implies a time when your exuberant and enthusiastic involvement with new ideas and more liberated religious principles runs hard into conservative thinking, "red tape," traditional rules and regulations, and even codified laws put together by "other people" who have no interest at all in upsetting their solid, comfortable status quo to accommodate you.
You may find "other people" especially unresponsive to your ideas and ego needs, more concerned with maintaining structure and appearances than with any actual search for "truth," and unyielding in their application of a "rules is rules" mentality ... without regard to the spirit behind the regulation ... let alone any concern for "fairness."
You may spend time over the next week feeling judged, unappreciated, criticized, even condemned by people with enough power to make you listen to them ... and no sympathy for your position whatsoever. It will be a hard week to get people to listen to what you have to say ... let alone take the time to understand and find a decent compromise in areas of dissent.
This configuration leaves you feeling cut off, mistreated, "unheard," and forced to accommodate someone else's structures and needs ... whose message may be delivered with a cold insistence that you have to think and act in certain ways in order to find acceptance, let alone respect.
It can obviously be a touchy and frustrating time ... and keeping a low profile, if possible, is not a bad idea. Also ... if you can postpone any kind of extensive project that deals with law, communications, contracts, agreements, academia, government, large institutions, education, or ethical questions ... you would be advised to do so.
Putting this energy into the inception of such an enterprise puts it in the Natal Chart of the matter, and leaves you battling this uphill arrangement every step of the way. It can even doom your project to failure from the beginning ... especially if authority figures, legal restrictions, or "someone else" needs to cooperate or give permission on important points for you to ultimately succeed.
