Saturn leaves your sign today, dear Sagittarius, after an almost three-year stay. Saturn now moves into your solar second house and will stay there until 2020, marking a new stage of taking stock of your finances and practical affairs.
It’s a period for a more responsible and realistic approach to money and possessions. Belt-tightening is in order and very useful even rewarding. You’re in an excellent position to declutter, reduce waste, and make good (or better) use of your resources.
Financial success can be slow but steady. Getting organized and learning to recognize and market your talents are themes in this next stage of your life. Look for overlapping or unnecessary expenses and other redundancies, and aim to rid yourself of material clutter.
Today, the Moon spends the day in this same area of your solar chart, encouraging you to seek out a predictable, steady pace rather than jump into something new. This is a good thing as it’s only one day after your New Moon and a few days before Mercury turns direct, and it’s better to take the time to think about what’s your next best course of action.
The entire world seems to be moving one way while you are in a contrary frame of mind. Just recently, other people appeared to be more interested in having fun when you were uncharacteristically somber.
But the tables are turning, and you can feel the joy creeping back into your life as everyone else is growing more serious. Ironically, your spirit might continue to lighten, even if you assume more responsibilities in the weeks ahead.
