them. A partner may even take off for pastures new in some cases.

Home and Family
With Saturn still in Cancer, matters of home, family and emotional
ties will be important for the Rams, needing attention and effort.
You may have to work hard to live up to your responsibilities. Some
will be pulled between commitments at home and at work and have
to find a better balance. This could result in a decision to draw
a new boundary line that marks clearly what you will and won't do
on either side of the fence. Care for children or the elderly may
generate a greater load for some of you. For others, business activity
may dominate the home. The home itself may be a concern. There may
be renovations or improvements for some while others may be leaving,
breaking from an old home base to seek new horizons. One way or
another, the issues of home, family and your emotional life will
be of great concern. Make sure you give them the attention they

working, change it. If there's a problem, get to the nitty-gritty.
Change your diet. Change your ways. If you get expert advice, follow
it without hesitation. Develop practices to clarify mental and physical
health. Simple is best! Changes in belief may affect your working

Saturn sets the pace in career matters, introducing twin notes of
wisdom and caution. First, be careful about conflict with the boss
or people in authority. Negotiate difficulties without that Aries
impatience. Toe the line where you have to. Your career will flourish
if you accept that some things can only be changed over time. Work
patiently around both the obstacles and the people that block your
path. You won't get what you want by rocking the boat but by putting
your back into the rowing.
As Chiron the
wounded healer continues his journey through Capricorn and your
solar tenth house, you must continue the search to find your sense
of authority in what you do. Step up and make your mark. New ideas
or dreams may come from friends or from within. Follow your dreams.
Be guided by the highest ideals. You will flourish and grow both
in friendship and personal success if you do.
Mercury the Messenger
Mercury moves into retrograde (reverse) motion three times a year
for about three weeks each time. This phase heralds a time of confusion
and misunderstandings that can affect arrangements, travel, transport,
appliances, machinery and communications. The breakdowns that occur
are a function of neglect, inattention, simple misunderstandings
or component failure. They will often bring to the fore the very
contingency we should have planned for and didn't. When the retrograde
phase occurs, watch out for such possibilities as well as putting
off major decision-making or the signing of crucial documents and
agreements. We tend to miss things while Mercury is in reverse motion
and then have to come back and do them again. A process of review
in the retrograde phase can efficiently show where problems might
lie and help us with damage control or the mending of things. Double
check arrangements at these times! What you think you've said and
what others have understood will often prove to be two different
