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. These are unlikely to be drastic changes, but rather more on 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.

Travel may be for business purposes only. You may not be as adventurous, preferring to stick around home and your neighborhood, or perhaps for some, stuck there.
This can also be a period of teaching others what you have learned. This can be experienced as a balancing influence, or you may feel that matters expand and restrict alternately.
