Saturn Transits your Natal Sun: When transiting Saturn makes a conjunct aspect to your natal Sun, increased responsibility, obligations, and hard work are the main focus of your life. Reality may hit you like a ton of bricks during this cycle, and you may experience increasing awareness of your personal limitations. As a result, you may feel depressed during this transit. This is a “pruning” period in your life, in which you pull away from people and circumstances you feel are not conducive to your inner development. Indeed, poor choices you have made in the past may come back to haunt you at this time. On the positive side, this transit increases your self-reliance, and gives you the opportunity to gather a great amount of strength. This can also be a time in which you achieve your long-term goals. This transit will serve to put you on the “right track” in your life. On the downside, you may feel lonely or isolated at this time, but keep in mind that this feeling will pass once this transit is over. In addition, your self-esteem and confidence may decrease at this time. Whatever the case, you are far more grounded, serious, and realistic during this cycle. Look back to when Saturn squared and opposed your Sun to see how this transit may manifest in your life.
Saturn trine or sextile your natal Sun: This cycle represents increased discipline, seriousness, and organization. You are dedicated to furthering your goals, and are likely to achieve success in your endeavors. During this time, you are solid, dependable, and realistic. You readily take on responsibility, and easily gain support of elders and authority figures. This is a great time to pull your life together and get on the right path to success.
Saturn square or opposite Sun: During this cycle, frustrations, depression, delays, disappointments, and difficult decisions are likely to surface. You may feel blocked or restricted in your efforts to achieve success, which can be very disheartening. In the case of the opposition, restrictions and increased responsibilities may manifest through your relationships. You may be prone to worrying during this transit, and your skepticism is likely to increase. During this time, you are pessimistic about your life and its direction. Remember: the difficulties and restrictions that you experience in your life at this time are serving as a test to see what you really want to do with your life. You will discard relationships and commitments that do not reflect who you truly are. Indeed, this transit serves to help us discover what we truly feel is valuable in our lives.
