This is an optimistic time when you can see really rosy glows on the horizon.|
|SAGITTARIUS: You are aware of a lessening of certain old ambitions. You no longer wish or are able to do what you once did. You are not finding it easy to take on practical responsibility, since you want to retreat into a private space to ponder.

You will reap now what you have sown in previous years. Your intimate relationships are improving. There is a generosity coming your way from the universe.|
|PISCES: Saturn is soon going to move across your midheaven. This will bring more responsibility but it would be a mistake to think you have all the answers just yet. Close relationships should be easier, less tense, though you may have to beware a tendency to take partners too much for granted or indeed to rely totally on their advice which is not always realistic. They have a sunny-side-up mentality which is morale boosting, but sometimes wise to take with a pinch of salt.|
