Astrology Horoscope Forecast For Today, April 5, 2018 For Each Zodiac Sign
Zodiac, Self

We all have a dark side to ourselves.

The Sun is in Aries and the Moon is in Sagittarius. 

Today is set to be a great day for all zodiac signs. We have high expectations but it's best to adjust our attitudes in order to be realistic with what the day will bring. Adjust our thinking we must because no one controls Sagittarius energy. No one. Let me tell you why.

Sagittarius is known for their adventurous and independent spirit. So, when you put a Sagittarius with an Aries, what do you get? More adventure than you've ever bargained for.

The reason I say that is because whenever I see these two zodiac sign names together in any type of a sentence, I can't help but think about my experiences with the various Sagittariuses I've known who get involved with an Aries in some way.

(Note: Ordinarily, I never speak negatively about anyone's zodiac sign, but we all have a dark side, right? If I did, I'd have to talk all day and night about Aries until the day I died. Lord knows Aries can have a dark side to their nature without any other zodiac sign around!)

But since we are in a waning Moon phase, I'll make an exception, plus I think it needs to be said. 

One of those dark sides to Aries is that they can be super demanding about getting their own way. When this is applied to a Sagittarius, this can only go down in the books negatively, underlined, bold script, italicized, with asterisk signs everywhere.

It's important to say that Aries should not try to control a Sagittarius's mind or thought life, (especially when that Sagittarius child is being raised by an Aries parent). 

From cousins to an ex-boyfriend and work acquaintances and strangers I've met born with a bow in their hand, there's a certain type of power the Archer brings to the zodiac table. Sometimes they take that bow and shoot themselves in their own foot, especially when they think someone is trying to tell them what to do, how to do it, and when to do it. 

A Sagittarius who grows up with a very dominating parent, an overly critical mother or father who doesn't allow the Sagittarian to explore safely without fear or condemnation would get a double dose of this do-what-I-want-at-any-cost attitude.

Sagittarius is associated with the 9th House in astrology: fire, travel, adventure, higher self (very theologically oriented) and this sign is half human, half horse (ever tried to tame a stallion?

Just don't. You'll hurt yourself.

The Archer is ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter is our good planet, and with Jupiter, everything grows. A Sagittarius must grow but when they are overly-restricted, they can snap. (Famous criminals who were also Sagittarians include Ted Bundy, Billy the Kid, Charles Lucky Luciano, Pablo Escobar, and there's a whole lot more...).

So, when dealing with a Sagittarius, it's really important to let them feel that they have the freedom to say what's on their mind explore their own personal philosophies or else things come out sideways. 

As awful as this video sounds, it hit the nail on the head about the dark side of Sagittarius, their view the world — and their role in it — when someone or anyone tries to make them do something or be someone that they don't want to.

For example, one female Sagittarius I knew grew up in an extremely religious home that was borderline cult-like. Any new idea or thought was scrutinized and she was sadly made to feel bad about her unique way of viewing the world. 

The day of her 18th birthday, she ran off and married her high school boyfriend that was an Aries and bad news. Her parents didn't like him (this was the only time they were right), It's was a nightmare story, but let's just say she went to the extreme 'do what I want' perhaps because she felt so controlled by others for so long, that she ended up doing jail time as a result of things that happened in her marriage.

There was another male Sagittarius I knew who was raised by an Aries father and his dad was extremely controlling about everything. Again, this Sagittarius later ended up with major problems and he died just after turning 40 years old. His last phone call to me he talked about how his mind could not stop thinking about things and that's Sagittarius in a nutshell. They analyze everything to a fault. 

Those are just two stories, and I'm not blaming the parents, but just the other day I met another Sagittarius who grew up with a controlling parent and the lifelong problems that came with that just really made me think... the Archer needs lots of open space to explore. Just put a fence around them so that they feel safe, but leave the door open so they know they are free to leave if they want to.

Perhaps this is why relationships with a Sagittarius can feel like touch and go? Maybe this is why they can be difficult for some people to reign in. Who knows? For all of us, it's a signal to take today's good energy and remember to temper ourselves when we think that a good day is one to control. Instead, it's better to accept life on its own terms and learn to adapt, like a Sagittarius would.
