Like a speeding arrow from your Archer's quiver, you enter the game of love, your only thought to conquer the man you've fallen for and to beat the competition. All the fire signs, of which you are the third, tend to make a battle-ground of their love life - ardour first, everything else, including conscience and certainly wisdom, second. Where you differ from your fire sign sisters is that you are a sprinter in the love stakes, not a marathon runner, in fact you can be quite capricious and difficult to pin down. Yes, you fall madly in love but you can fall out again with surprising speed. Men are attracted to your vivaciousness, your humour, your get up and go, and your enterprise - if anyone has a solution, you do, if anyone needs help, you're there for them. You appear endlessly optimistic and confident on the surface, but you do get hurt, and rather often. Why?
Well, deep down you are terrified of commitment: you are a free spirit, and even though you need love and support just like anyone else, you are equally fearful of being trapped in the tedium of marriage, your horizons shrinking as the years go by. You are eternally young, always looking for the next 'big thing', the next adventure: you do not take easily to the responsibilities and ties of marriage, even though your biological clock ticks as loudly as every other child-bearing woman's. You are non-judgemental and very liberal in your views about fidelity and marriage: after the initial sting of betrayal, you will forgive and forget; likewise, if some other woman isn't looking after her man, you'll have no compunction in taking him away. A little more consideration about where your actions will take you and how they may affect someone else would go a considerable way to speeding your course to happy-ever-afterness. Nevertheless, you have one of the biggest hearts in the zodiac, and someone usually finds it and keeps it.
They seek him here, they seek him there... Yes, I'm afraid the Sagittarian man is hard to catch - not hard to interest, not difficult to enchant, just near impossible to get to the altar. He is terrific fun, quite the lad, but absolutely not into long-term commitment, in fact he's the zodiac's leading commitment-phobe. If you want him, you're going to have to play the game of running as fast as you can in the opposite direction, refusing all invitations to move in with him, never leaving as much as a toothbrush in his bathroom. Mr Sagittarius loves women who ooze feeling and mystery yet he's also drawn to females who wield power and influence. What drives him away are weeping and wailing, despair and need.
The other Mutable signs top your list of the men most likely to floor and adore you - Pisces, Virgo, Gemini and another Sagittarian. Mr Pisces can barely be resisted: he is the most endearing chap - romantic and idiosyncratic, he keeps you fascinated, and sexually enthralled. In the long run, however, his chronic undependability and his victim mentality can bring the relationship to its knees. Mr Virgo is also a magnet for you. You love this man's mind, his reserve and his unflappable manner - he is not impressed by your dramas, which initially stabilizes the relationship but ultimately stalls it. The Gemini man is your best long-term bet: you both suffer from the commitment jitters but there is just enough sexual tension and enough mutual admiration to keep the relationship going. And much the same could be said for another Sagittarian - two peas in a pod, sometimes in perfect symbiosis on life's path, and sometimes headed in totally opposite directions. Aquarius and Libra are two other serious contenders in the love stakes - easy-going, fair and non-judgemental.

Welcome to the world of Saturn. Saturn entered your sign for a two-year transit in September 2015, and during the next twelve months it will be the 24th November - 10th December birthdays who will feel this planet’s firm grip on their affairs. Responsibilities and duties there will be a-plenty, but the lessons you learn and the strength you will acquire will enable you to make huge strides in the years to come. Little will come easily and there could, I’m afraid, be disappointments - early June, mid- August and early September are trying to say the least - but do your best to remain optimistic. Trial and error will get you there in the end. Jupiter’s dominant position will produce compensations and lucky breaks, and the harder you work the luckier you’ll be. Home moves, possibly to a distant place, could be on the agenda for some Archers, and in the event of purchasing a property, do not exceed your budget.
Settling down does not come naturally to the celestial Archer - you are the zodiac’s free spirit - but if there is one plus to Saturn’s company during the next couple of years it is that you will find it easier to make commitments. You will learn the real value of a long-term partner this year and if you have been living with your significant other marriage is on the cards. (And if not, you must ask yourself why.) Two full moons on the relationship axis (21st May and 20th June) are decision-makers, and even if a relationship is not at the heart of events, especially in late June, there will be other factors that require a grown up response. Sadly, some Sagittarians will be heading for the divorce courts, but a change of heart at the eleventh hour could be on the cards. Second chances are also in your 2016 stars.
The Jupiter-Saturn connection of 26 May could be very good news for team Sagittarius, especially if you own your own business or are considering making a long-term investment of any description. Opportunity and preparation come together to form a successful package. Also good news is the Jupiter-Pluto trine of mid-March and late June which could help swell your bank account and give your self-esteem a boost. Good fortune plays a part too and you may find you are in the right place at the right time or that someone becomes your cheer-leader. As with any year it’s not going to be one long hymn to success and for some Sagittarians 2016 is going to prove an uphill struggle. You may be passed over for promotion, fail to do as well as you hoped in exams and a salary freeze could be a best case scenario. But, keep on keeping on. It will be worth it.

If you ask me where his musical genius is to be found, I'd have to say it is a mystery: like all great gifts, musicality lies outside the confines of a horoscope.
