week Saturn moves into Sagittarius. The last time Saturn was in
Sagittarius was from November 1985 until November 1988. This definitely
triggers a change of direction and focus for everyone, because Saturn is
the planet that has domain over structure, and a lot of the practical
ways that we live in the world. Although Saturn will return to Scorpio
for three months from June to September, 2015; really - for all
intensive purposes, this week marks beginning of a new 30-year cycle
that will affect everyone.
