In astrology, the way it works is that when the conditions of one planet are being blocked or ineffective, then you are suppose to look to the "next closer planet to the Sun" for the reasons and answers... If you were having long-term financial issues or issues relating to your career or professional life (usually handled by Saturn)... That means you would look to Jupiter for reasons that may be happening... Or issues dealing with love and romance (Venus), you would look to Mercury... It makes a lot of sense because in relationship issues (Venus)... Most of the time the root cause is some kind of blockage in communication.
With Saturn currently retrograde in the sign of Sagittarius... What is likely to happen is that we feel the need to move forward into the next and higher phase of our lives... It cries out for new adventures and to be able to escape from the drudgery and routines of our usual day-to-day lives... This happens even if your life is exciting as hell... It's like having a "voice ahead" calling you forward... But... (pointing to my butt)... Saturn is retrograde, so that voice calling you may sound like it's speakin' in a different language... hehe... Let's get into this...
In situations like this, the first thing I do is to check out Saturn and see where it is (in both the solar and natal charts) to get the vibe of what it's up to... Seeing it retro sends up a big signal flare in my mind that something is not right... So I look right to Jupiter to see where it is.
Jupiter is in the sign of Libra... (the scales of Balance)...It's also at the halfway point (15 degrees) so the scales are balanced at the moment... As Jupiter inches forward, the energy shifts from "what we give" to "what we receive"... Both Jupiter and Libra deal strongly with Justice... I'll get into what that means for each sign in Wednesday's daily 'scope... (i'd do it now, but the other scopes are already written)... Anyway... If you find yourself struggling in the Saturn related areas of life, you can find nearly instant improvement by being more aware of the "give and take" qualities of Jupiter in Libra... In this case, the Big Spirit uses the spiritual qualities of Saturn in Sagittarius to be resolved by restoring balance... And the Judgment is completely valid too, because it reveals that IT isn't judging us, it is us judging ourselves.
Sorry for the Astro-Babble... I try to avoid the "means and methods" of charting, but the stuff that comes later in the week kinda requires you to have an idea of how things work... I look at things like this as the main reasons we can "work smart, not hard" and to be able to prosper through any kind of astrological cycle we may be dealing with and actually be improving ourselves at the same time... Cool or freakin' what?... hehe... That means mutant-spazzes like you and I will always have a chance (sometimes better than a chance) at succeeding in our goals, dreams and wishes.
That's it for now... Big time thanks for stoppin' by... I'll talk to you guys later...
Keep the Faith... Better Days and Higher Love are comin' soon...

The weekly horoscope for Aries has that "light at the end of the tunnel" kind of feel to it... Yeah, there are still going to be some challenge and issues that will need to be worked out, but at least deep inside you know things are moving in the right direction... Because of the arrangement of your chart, keep in mind that there will need to be a lot of adaptation and adjustments made... Luck will be with you all week, but that doesn't mean you can get reckless or impulsive... Or that others will be able to envision what you know to be true... Gotta have extra patience with others.
