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. You might begin to view casual friendships as superficial and unsatisfying, and want more. Essentially, quantity in the relationship department is replaced with quality, and this process involves time, soul-searching, frustration, and, ideally, eventual fulfillment.
This transit can also stimulate a stronger desire for long-term, real connections, or it may bring a more mature or serious partner into your life. You are more selective when it comes to your close associations. Decisions are easier when you can see people and things for both their strengths and weaknesses, so aim for this sweet spot.
You might also find less time for socializing during this cycle, perhaps due to relationship stresses, but also because you are more serious than usual about your interpersonal relationships and have a hard time swallowing superficiality. As this transit progresses, you are likely to discover your true needs from partnerships, as well as what you can realistically give to a partner.
At some point while Saturn moves through the sign of Capricorn, Saturn will oppose your Sun or Ascendant. You might encounter opposition or resistance to your personal plans and goals, which forces you to re-evaluate your current projects or commitments. Some of these need to be left behind. A maturation process is now in progress, and although this might not be immediately clear, changes you make now will make your life simpler, easier, and healthier later on.
You are likely seeing the unflattering side of a partner, and also of yourself as you manage your feelings.
Be fearless when facing the roots of any problems that emerge now. The areas of your life that require a back to basics, no-nonsense approach are associated with the sector of your solar chart that rules close personal relationships, such as marriages and other committed partnerships, long-term associations, open enemies, negotiations, agreements, and contracts.
There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Some areas of your life may seem to be breaking down before they get better. There can also be bone and teeth problems — something that often happens with hard Saturn transits. Tidy and organize your life as much as possible in order to minimize the challenges. The last time Saturn transited this area of your solar chart was from Saturn does very well in this sector of your chart because Saturn is the natural ruler of your solar partnership sector.
The long-term benefits can be great. Saturn encourages you to build some boundaries, restrict, or discipline yourself, and Saturn is now transiting your solar sixth house until , dear Leo. Aim to make changes in these areas of life slowly, responsibly, and conservatively — Saturn-style! The goal now is to make improvements that last years, if not a lifetime.
Aim to work hard and do what you can, without pushing yourself too hard. Saturn wants you to work smarter, not necessarily harder. This is a time for adopting a no-nonsense approach to work and health. While Saturn transited Sagittarius, your romantic relationships, as well as relationships with your children if appropriate, may have been put to the test. This happened because Saturn was moving through your solar fifth house.
Now Saturn turns its critical eye to matters of the sixth house, and you are likely to feel a certain level of pressure in the areas of work, daily functions, habits, and health. At the beginning of the transit, you might be more accountable than ever when it comes to your work. You may initially feel bogged down by what seems like undue pressure in your routines or everyday life. However, Saturn brings pressure that is never truly undue. In fact, Saturn knows better than us and does know when something is due.
Things we may have previously neglected or disregarded need to be faced, managed, and handled responsibly. How can you make the best use of your time? How can you manage your day-to-day life, and your body, more effectively? These are questions that demand answers now.
Spring cleaning is now in order! This is an excellent time for starting new regimens to better your health and well-being, such as regular exercise, more structured and productive use of your time, and so forth. Organizing your workspace is appropriate, and so is re-organizing your daily schedule. In fact, you might be faced with life events that force you to restructure these things, or at least provide you with the motivation to get your act together.
The sixth house is a house of service, and while the work we do may sometimes feel too routine or boring, it can also give us a strong feeling of purpose. We want to be needed, we want to help and support others, and to do our share. In the end, you can, in fact, feel more joyful about the services you provide and the support you give, after taking a realistic look at these things and making the necessary adjustments. Saturn moving through your health sector might concern you. However, typically if health concerns manifest during this transit, they are manageable with some reorganization and structure.
They signal the need for change in diet, routines, and habits.
By the end of the transit, you will have learned, ideally, to be more productive and efficient, to live in a healthier manner, and to be considerably more focused. Things built on weak foundations may crack under the pressure of these tests. Responsibilities in your daily life can weigh heavily — they appear magnified.
Do be sure that you are tending to your responsibilities, and not letting them pile up. For those of you unhappy with your job or out of work, you are not likely to jump to grab just any position now. You are looking for something mature, long-term, and reflective of your values. Because you are more discriminating now, the pickings might seem to be slim. There can be confusion about where you are headed, ultimately, in your professional life. You understand and welcome the structuring energy of this transit on your daily routines.
As the transit progresses, you will gain a stronger sense of what motivates you, and how to best express yourself creatively in more effective and perhaps practical ways. What makes you unique? How do you handle pride?
What are your creative talents? These are issues you will face during the course of this transit. By the time Saturn enters the sixth house in , you should have a solid sense of what makes you different than others, and a realistic and concrete belief in your own creative talents.
