Friday - - Your Stars -


When you care about some­thing or some­body, there’s al­ways time to be there, to get in­volved, to learn and ex­plore. How­ever, when the ac­tual sub­ject or the sit­u­a­tion in­volved is dull, you’ll ei­ther put off deal­ing with these mat­ters or give them the min­i­mum time pos­si­ble.

Yet with sen­si­ble Saturn in your sign since 2015, you’ve been in a pe­riod that’s de­manded an un­ac­cus­tomed, and of­ten ag­gra­vat­ing, va­ri­ety of fo­cus and, in turn, per­sis­tence. It may be that events cor­nered you into this or, al­ter­na­tively, you might have com­mit­ted to a course of study. Now, as this de­mand­ing cy­cle en­ters its fi­nal six months, you ben­e­fit from those ef­forts, of­ten in thrilling if un­ex­pected ways, and re­alise that, by mak­ing a greater ef­fort, you could learn more or im­prove your skills. In that sense, you’ll be dis­cov­er­ing a ‘new you’, one who’s more will­ing to com­mit to plans, some a va­ri­ety that, only re­cently, you’d have done ev­ery­thing you can to avoid.

This also raises ques­tions about your ac­tiv­i­ties, whether non­pro­fes­sional pur­suits or a full-on ca­reer. You’ll be­gin re­think­ing these now and will, grad­u­ally, re­alise you’re ready to com­mit to some­thing more de­mand­ing, and ul­ti­mately, more re­ward­ing than, only months ago, you’d have con­ceived pos­si­ble.


Many say that Sagit­tar­i­ans are born lucky. Although it seems that way, the com­bi­na­tion of your gen­uine in­ter­est in others and in the world around you leads to new and worth­while con­tacts, to of­fers and op­por­tu­ni­ties, some that might be termed ‘golden’, in that they bring in money.

But as a fire sign, you care more about lead­ing a life that’s rich in re­ward­ing ex­pe­ri­ences, people who lift your spir­its and ac­tiv­i­ties, some per­haps money-earn­ing, that you en­joy. While, mostly, you’ve done ex­actly this, the move by stern Saturn into your sign in late 2015 be­gan a cy­cle of review, and that luck may have seemed to van­ish.

Ac­tu­ally, you were be­ing forced to ven­ture into un­fa­mil­iar ter­ri­tory; sit­u­a­tions in which you were learn­ing in ways or from people that, oth­er­wise, wouldn’t have be­come part of your life. Dur­ing the last half of 2017, you be­gin to recog­nise how you’ll ben­e­fit from those en­forced lessons and may, bizarrely, re­alise how ben­e­fi­cial they’ve been, so sign on for more. This could in­volve classes, adding to your skills, in­vest­ing in new ways, or re­strict­ing how or where you use your time and skills. What­ever you do, those ef­forts will pay off now, and even more in 2018.


Judg­ing by the plan­e­tary ac­tiv­ity for the year’s first half, you and those around you, will have strug­gled or faced sud­den and, of­ten, very chal­leng­ing prob­lems. While, ob­vi­ously, these weren’t wel­come, look­ing back on them, you’re recog­nis­ing how much both you and others learnt from deal­ing with these.

It was al­most as if destiny had de­signed a course of study, one in­tended to force you to learn about cer­tain sit­u­a­tions, to de­velop new skills and meet people – all of which have added to your life. Bet­ter yet, in those sit­u­a­tions that in­volved sev­eral in­di­vid­u­als, you learnt to work as a team, of­ten in a way that was new for you, as a self-suf­fi­cient Sagittarius.

These changes, this growth, in re­la­tion­ships at home, with friends and es­pe­cially, the new links you’ve formed will add im­mea­sur­ably to your life now, and in the com­ing months. Chal­lenges will still ap­pear, but you’ll han­dle them dif­fer­ently, and might even en­joy the cre­ative side of the process. Bet­ter yet, this un­ac­cus­tomed way of spend­ing time with others, hav­ing new rea­sons to be to­gether, has brought a de­light­ful zest and joy into those most im­por­tant of re­la­tion­ships in your life.


After nearly three years of tough Saturn in Sagittarius, you’ve faced chal­lenges and learnt lots from them but had few pay­offs. The events trig­gered by Au­gust’s eclipses bring changes that, in turn, lead to ideas, of­fers and life-chang­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties. And this is just the be­gin­ning.

Many say that Sagit­tar­i­ans are born LUCKY. Although it seems that way, your GEN­UINE IN­TER­EST in others and in the world around you leads to new con­tacts, of­fers and op­por­tu­ni­ties that might be termed ‘GOLDEN’
