As always our focus cannot waver from the nature of the Rāśi/ Rashi for that will afford us understanding of the field of play. Sagittarius is about optimism and moorings in high knowledge. The structure of religious doctrine or higher eclectic truth is to be found in Dhanuṣa Rāśi/ Dhanusha Rashi.
We can then say that on New Year's Eve the hope for higher ground is one that should hold up our assailed psychology on the threshold of 2014. If we are able to tap into this part of things then we have a very strong aspect of retrograde Jupiter from its own sign on to the cluster of planets in Dhanuṣa where the active inputs from Jupiter are forthcoming. We are also aided by surrounding circumstances in this since the Rāśi Dṛṣṭi is also there both from Gurū and Maṅgala-this is the flip side of the influences on the transiting and changeable mind-the forthright expression of an elevated belief system can help us avoid rushing into any gathering, any group of people, any stimulant, anything...and make the evening and the following day more meaningful and weighty.
The balance to this astrological equation is finally given by the Yogas which form in the skies-the Gajakeśarī/ Gajakesari and the Parivartana Yoga between Budha and Gurū. The former leads to acclaim and fame for those using the intellect for their professional pursuits and the latter ensures that what we communicate has the power of wisdom of Jupiter in it.
Celebrate the New Year's Eve on 31st December, 2013, but with this insight.
