The creative process is not controlled by a switch you can simply turn on or off; it’s with you all the time. Alvin Ailey
Alvin Ailey’s horoscope is a wild display of legacy, life long commitment, and courageous leadership. When looking at his photo I can not help be see the resemblance of the goat persona Capricorn is so famous for. His piercing eyes, his chiseled jawline, and perfectly trimmed ‘ goatee’. He is the quintessential goat not only in image but also soul and spirit, as his chart clearly reveals.
What’s most striking in his chart is the intimate connection between the Sun and Saturn at 14 degrees of Capricorn. In astrology this tight planetary embrace is known as cazimi or “in the heart of the Sun”. When a planet is “in the heart of the Sun”, its power is amplified and adds a special charisma to the Sun’s rays.
In Mr. Ailey’s case the connection is even more powerful as Saturn happens to also be the ruler of Capricorn, the zodiac’s most serious sign. Saturn is also known as the ruler of “fate” and points to one’s destiny. It is a planet that rewards hard work with lasting achievement. Now, moving toward yet another decade in the 21st century, the Ailey Spirit continues to shine brightly, as if indeed in the heart of the Sun.

THE SUN MERGES WITH SATURN IN SAGITTARIUS
God Give me hills to climb, and the strength for climbing. A Guiterman
When the Sun and Saturn are in the same degree, it’s one of the most serious days of the year. As the Sun joins Saturn, (to be completely united on Saturday December 10, 6:51 a.m.) we’ll feel the ground beneath our feet. But the Sun will still be shining! That’s because these planets will unite in a fire sign, Sagittarius, the most optimistic sign of the zodiac. Expect your faith to be tested (severely), and with a strong sense of heroism and adventure, you’ll find your way. Saturn’s job is to teach us the value of hard work, and perseverance, so you may feel worked to the bone. The good news is, if you can stay happy, (or a least find a reason to smile), you’ll infuse your work with real spirit, and you’ll make a lasting difference. This may involve your website, a business expansion, or educational pursuit. No matter how hard it gets- keep going, and you’ll flex your spiritual muscles.
ARIES (March 21- April 19)
Travel plans might be delayed, or a business trip may conflict with your schedule. Take it slow, and you’ll work out the details as you go along. If you’re a student or intern, you may question your ability to succeed, due to a heavy work load. This too shall pass Aries, in the meantime, keep the big picture in clear focus
TAURUS (April 20 -May 20)
Your credit might be in question in regards to a big purchase. A mortgage, student loan, or insurance policy may have you really concerned, and your options may be limited. Do your best to get down the basics of what’s at stake, and the right decision will likely be the only one that makes complete sense.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
You and your sweetheart or business partner may come to standstill in regards to your relationship’s future. Honesty will be the best policy as you express what’s on your mind- so don’t hold back. You’ll likely discover your partner feels the same- which will give you a great start for positive change!
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
Take care of your health, Cancer. An important work assignment or health matter may take its toll on you if you’re not careful, (even with your mastery of delegation). Take time out to get some air and have fun. Even if you don’t think you have the time, a little play break will likely improve your mood, as well as your productivity.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
You may feel the weight of being a parent, if you have children. You son or daughter may need you to come through for them at the wrong time. Try not to be too hard on yourself Leo. Even though you’re the lion of zodiac, you’re still human! If you’re single and dating, a commitment may have you nervous-stay flexible, as true love always makes one feel free.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You may feel weighted down by your emotions and feel overwhelmed by too many options. This will likely involve a family matter, relocation, or real estate venture. If you’ve been thinking about relocating, you may realize it’s time to make a final decision. Stay open minded and listen to your gut- as you’ll likely be pleasantly surprised by what you hear.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
A serious conversation will likely be on your mind. This may involve your brother or sister, or a neighbor. If you have a short trip or important errand to run, you’ll likely be delayed. A simple detour that looks like a short cut will likely become a maze of confusion. You’ll master the chaos if you give yourself lots of time, and stay positive.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Money will likely be on your mind. You may need to save more than you thought, or you may not be making as much you’d like. You have a keen business mind Scorpio. Think of ways you can conserve, and you’ll likely come up with a workable plan that will be full proof for the long run. Know what has the most value, as this will be a key success factor.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Wow Sagittarius. With Saturn, the planet of wisdom and maturity, now in Sagittarius, (to last until December 2017), you may feel as though the world is on your shoulders. And this is a good thing! Reach out to those who believe in you, and you’ll realize you have everything it takes to make the most of all the opportunities that lie ahead. Don’t go this day alone—as you’ll receive solid support from a mentor, colleague, or close friend.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
A confidential matter might be on your mind, and you finally have to squarely face the impact of its consequences. Alternatively, from out of the blue, you may realize someone is not on your side. Be ready to draw a line, Capricorn. Stay aware, as a blind spot will likely become revealed to you and challenge you to go within to find the real solution.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
A close friend may fall short of your expectations, or he or she may be faced with a personal challenge that impacts your relationship. You may be called on for encouragement when you may the one who sincerely needs it. Aquarius is known as the sign of friendship, so it’s likely you’ll instinctively know what to do. Stay steadfast to those you believe in, and you’ll deepen your faith.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
A public ambition may become increasingly complicated, and you may wonder if it’s even worth it to follow through. It might be that you’re trying to do too much with too little. Keep your vision big and stay wholehearted, but pace yourself. Any road block you encounter will likely be a grand opportunity to recommit with added strength, and certainty.
