There can be delays or difficulties in general when it comes to getting what you want or need from others. Intimacy may seem to dry up before it gets better, but it does get better! These are unlikely to be drastic changes, but rather more along the lines of slow but sure progress, little by little. While this period can be a tad difficult at times, particularly when Saturn forms a quincunx to your Sun or Ascendant, there are some dazzling spots, making it a rewarding period overall, particularly if you focus more on long-term benefits and less on short-term frustrations.
Saturn occupies a sign that it rules, Capricorn, during this period, and performs very well here as a result. How do you handle power? Your desire nature? Intimate relationships? What kind of obsessions and addictions do you have? What are your deep-rooted compulsions? What are your unhealthy attachments? With Saturn transiting your eighth house, you are aiming to answer these questions truthfully and honestly.
At the beginning of the transit, you may be especially sensitive to what seems like outer world pressures that force you to examine and question some of your deepest desires and attachments. These include your sexual relationships, your finances especially with regards to debts, obligations, and shared finances , and your need for control.
Dissatisfaction and frustrations getting what you want, especially with reference to relationships with others and with your financial resources, may be felt now. Now with Saturn in Capricorn, you may be facing the challenges of a long-term partnership, including sharing finances, power dynamics, and sexual routine, or facing the challenges of living your life without a partner and getting your needs met. You may find that previous methods of controlling your environment and the people in your lives simply are not effective anymore. You may not even be aware of how you have been employing power and control to date.
Now is the time to get in touch with yourself and motivations. Another realm over which the eighth house reigns is our mortality. With Saturn here, we become much more aware of our mortality. Just as Saturn transits to our Sun or Ascendant make us more conscious of our age, Saturn transiting the eighth house often brings with it a realization that our time will one day come. Of course, we know this as a fact at the back of our minds, but Saturn has a way of bringing this more strongly to our attention.
For example, there may be a loss of one form of income, or insecurity about same. Financial obligations to others might feel especially burdensome now. In some cases, a partner is dealing with financial issues. For other Geminis, you may be supporting others and this feels too constricting or too much.
Dealing with deep-seated fears, anger, and resentment may be necessary and very healthy and purging during this cycle. You might face some of your fears that are of a compulsive nature—those fears that lead you to believe that you need certain things in order to survive. Take a small example of a superstition. Perhaps we perform some kind of small ritual that we feel will help protect us or give us good luck.
If we do it often enough, it becomes an addiction. If we get rid of this superstition, we feel stronger. Something as simple as a superstition or ritual for good luck can undermine us.

Because we are giving away our power over ourselves to this compulsive behavior. We are denying that we have power over our own lives.
The same is true of any form of compulsive behavior and addiction. We attempt to control our lives through these behaviors, but what we are really doing is letting the addictions control us. When we give in to compulsive behaviors, we give up self-control, and guilt undermines our lives. We are not ourselves. By attempting to control others, we give away our own power. Towards the end of the transit, you may have eliminated some deep-seated habits and attachments that have been preventing you from feeling emotionally free. You emerge healthier and stronger. You may have put some of your addictions and superstitions behind you.
You might feel more powerful because you have given up attempting to control things you cannot or should not control, and you will have gained a healthy feeling of self-mastery. Bonds are tight and may feel constricting, but filling your duties to others can be ultimately satisfying. However, in many cases, you may recognize where you can bend and accommodate, and this is humbling.
You may need to define boundaries more clearly in your relationships if sharing of power, time, money, and resources feels very off, and it often does during this transit. Saturn is now transiting your solar seventh house, dear Cancer. This puts Saturn opposite your sign, and significant relationships with others as well as the mirror of your own personality provided through your relationships with others are the focus. Relationship tests are likely. Saturn looks for any weak links and exposes them — they become obvious and even glaring.
You may have to let go of relationships built on weak foundations, or work on strengthening them.
This is a cycle in which you need to define, understand, and crystallize your significant relationships with others. If you already have a partner, this is a time when any problems surrounding compromise, flexibility, and the ability to give your heart to your partner will surface. By the end of the transit, however, you will have learned much about commitment and compromise.
The amount of satisfaction you are deriving from your relationship, the quality of the relationship itself, and how you view your partner are all things that are under the microscope now. Disillusionment is a possibility, as you are beginning to see your relationship without rose-colored glasses now. I am tempted to say you are now seeing your relationship for what it is , which is true in a sense but do remember that flaws are very much in focus, and your perspective may be skewed a little towards the negative before you reach a more balanced and realistic perspective.
For those of you who are single, the initial pressures of Saturn transiting the seventh house can stimulate a feeling of loneliness. You might feel a void in your life now and ache for a true equal in a partner. Although this is possible in either situation whether you have a significant partnership or not , instead of an issue of re-committing, you will be examining your need for partnership.
If involved in a casual love relationship, when Saturn transits the seventh, you might feel an urge or pressure to make a commitment or a re-definition of your bond. Healthy partnerships can be the outcome, whether they are new ones or strengthened existing partnerships. Saturn always brings with him a fair measure of reality and objectivity, so that existing relationships may be defined and re-defined. Relationships are seen now as serious matters, perhaps a little too much so at times.
Responsibilities to partners, the need to compromise, and the realities of the needs of others, become clear.
You are forced to see people as separate individuals and to improve the manner in which you relate to and with others. Some of you will be leaving partnerships behind, and others will be making a commitment.
Those of you who are not interested in partnering may solidify this position.
