We all know you’re starting to feel Saturn fatigue from having the Karmic Teacher in your sign since last fall, but stay with us, Sagittarius. You’re in the home stretch. Venus retrograde in your origins sector stirs up serious emotions around your personal roots, but Venus direct on the 15th washes away any lingering negative vibes. Saturn retrograde in your sign on the 6th slows down the pace, so even though you love novelty, it’s time to settle in for the long haul. Luckily, a Libra full moon brings support from your friends, a beacon of light in seemingly dark times.

Another challenge this month is going to be Mercury retrograde in your daily grind and pleasure sectors. Your perfectionist desire for an organized life conflicts with your ability to have fun, and it leaves you feeling worn out. You can’t be all things to all people, so you might as well enjoy yourself sometimes. Under the Taurus new moon, resolve to treat yourself regularly instead of punishing yourself for things that aren’t a big deal. You deserve good things, even when you don’t feel like it. When the lesson finally hits home under the Saturn-Chiron square on the 30th, you breathe a huuuuge sigh of relief.
