Saturn, planet of tests and challenges, moved into Libra last October and will remain there until 2014. Saturn is all about karma, and it highlights where extra effort can help breed success.
Saturn is very strong in Libra, the sign of exaltation, and offers a clear path to maturity, responsibility and success. Enjoy this rundown of how your Sun sign will mature and how you'll restructure yourself during the next few years!
Saturn triggers your relationship sector, helping you make honest commitments to the people who matter. As a result, lightweight relationships may suffer under Saturn's tests. Consider Saturn your relationship counselor, showing you who's really worth your time and energy. Major relationship commitments are possible.
Saturn activates your health and daily routine sector, reminding you to dedicate yourself to your everyday lifestyle. With health in focus, make changes to your work schedule that will support your body and spirit. You're in a period of apprenticeship, and while you may not be earning the big bucks, you're definitely gathering valuable skills for future success!
Saturn in your creativity and children sectors invite you to make a commitment to having fun. Get serious about playtime by enrolling in an art or dance class! Romances take a serious turn as you contemplate future possibilities. Your relationships to younger people become more fulfilling as you realize it's time for you to be the grown-up.
Saturn in your home and family zone helps you clarify your ultimate domestic dreams. Many Cancers will take the plunge in the next two years and move into a long-awaited home, whether it be away from family or in with a significant partner. Stick to your promises where family is concerned ... but be clear about where your boundaries lie.
Communication, self-expression and sibling relationships all take on a more mature tone. Like the adult you're constantly becoming, you start saying what you really mean. Sometimes you'll be nervous, but Saturn gives you strength to be increasingly honest. You may even take on a pseudo-parental role with siblings.
Saturn enters your money zone, helping you get your finances in order. You'll reap what you've sown around previously made investments and loans. If you have lifestyle debt (credit cards, personal loans, line of credit), start reducing what you owe. And if you've saved up a stash of cash, Saturn helps you slowly but surely find the right opportunity in which to invest this savings for the long term.
You enter a whole new life cycle as Saturn enters your sign. The next few years will see you re-focus and revise your life path. You'll solidify the relationships that truly sustain you, and cut ties with people that aren't genuinely supportive of your future. Take charge of where you want your life to go!
Time out is your top priority as Saturn slips into your spiritual zone. Your deepest fears and dreams demand your attention, but you're not yet ready to reveal them to others. Overdoing it with Saturn in your twelfth house can lead to physical illness, so if you feel strung out, slow down and escape.
It's time to review all the names in your little black book. Saturn in your friendship zone helps you cull superficial acquaintances and focus on the friends that matter. Review your commitment to social and networking groups. You've only got so much down time, so prioritize those with whom you spend it.
Your professional profile ramps up a notch, and whether you realize it or not, others are expecting bigger and better things from you. If you've outgrown your current role, take the initiative to find a more challenging one. Already happy in your field? Explore new roles that bring increased responsibility and respect for your wisdom and experience.
You may require a more serious attitude, and Saturn can help you realize your long-term study or travel dreams. Conversely, if you haven't adequately prepared for the life changes that ongoing study or travel can bring, Saturn highlights exactly what needs to be done to save money and prepare fully.
Joint finances, shared resources, family inheritances and taxes are in focus as Saturn enters your eighth house. Lift the lid on what really goes on in the bank accounts of those you love. Be honest about your own financial affairs and make sure you file and pay taxes and loan repayments on time.
