The past two years of Saturn in your sign have brought many enforced changes. You've had to rise to occasions that otherwise might have held you down. You've been shaped and tempered, and you've done a lot of growing up.

As a wise astrologer once wrote, Saturn always gives more than it takes away. Now Saturn has moved on to Sagittarius, and the emphasis for you in 2016 is on your self-esteem. Do not take respecting yourself for granted. It's easy enough for you to do, though now it seems like you're being tested.

You might feel like there's not enough of you to go around, even for yourself. The planets in their courses are guiding you to experiment with this idea: the opposite of depression is expression. You are being squeezed; and from that pressure, you will discover many openings through which beautiful and seemingly new manifestations of yourself may emerge. When you feel the crush: express, express, express. And in the process, you will gain a rare and beautiful kind of confidence.
