SAGITTARIUS RISING: Jupiter is transiting the 3rd house and is relatively unafflicted and strong Feb. 2-16th so i will lead to more creative writing, acting and speaking and your actions will be expansive.

CAPRICORN RISING: Saturn has great power now but still can create health issues if you are not disciplined with diet and exercise.
