Transiting Saturn in Pisces
No matter which zodiac sign your Sun claims as its own, at some point transiting Saturn will pay it a visit, and when it does, you can expect to reap what you’ve previously sown in some area of your life.
So how will you fare under Saturn’s scrutiny? No matter which aspect Saturn makes to your Sun, ultimately it depends upon your personal circumstances, including what you’ve been doing (or not doing) until now.
If you’re born under Pisces, at some point Saturn will conjunct your Sun. This means you’re wrapping up a cycle and depending on your past performance, you will experience a time of achievement or a time of disappointment.
Although whatever is sound in your life will continue to go smoothly, it will still require considerable effort and persistence to achieve your goals. This cycle is a test of endurance. If you keep your eye on the prize and continue working towards it with honesty and integrity, you’ll ultimately bring home the win.
In contrast, whatever isn’t sound will likely collapse. If you experience a personal and/or professional defeat, it’s only critical that you understand exactly what went wrong, recognize your role in it and accept responsibility for your actions. If not, when you attempt to regroup, you can expect to repeat the same pattern (lesson). The last thing you want or need is to invest your time, energy and resources in a losing proposition.
Whether you rise or fall during this cycle, one thing is for certain: When a cycle ends, a new one begins, and with new beginnings come second chances. If you experienced this period as a time of achievement, you get a second chance to prove your worth, and if you experienced it as a time of disappointment, you get a second chance to get it right.
If you’re born under Cancer or Scorpio, at some point Saturn will trine your Sun. When it does, you can expect to make great strides with little effort. At this time, your goals are likely to be within reach, and while others may view it as a lucky gift from the Universe, the truth is that it’s the result of your past efforts.
Although you may be feeling very satisfied, this isn’t a time to settle where you are or rest on past laurels. Instead, use this stable flow of energy to achieve lasting success. Since this energy won’t be back anytime soon, it’s crucial that you make the most of it.
If you’re born under Gemini or Sagittarius, at some point Saturn will square your Sun. When it does, you can expect a challenge to rear its head or some type of conflict to arise that will test your commitment to something (or someone) in your life.
If you’re on the wrong path, you’re likely to encounter enough setbacks to make you feel like you’re constantly swimming upstream. If so, it’s time to face reality and cut your losses.
Should you be on the right path, you can still expect challenges that test your resolve, but instead of making you feel discouraged, they will promote your ambition and inspire you to rise to the occasion.
Although this cycle is commonly associated with some form of defeat, if you’re on the right path and stay the course, Saturn will propel you to success. Like anything else, much depends on what you’ve been doing up until now. I have witnessed scores of individuals succeed under this cycle, and I stand by this statement 100%.
If you’re born under Virgo, at some point Saturn will oppose your Sun, and when it happens, you’re likely to feel as though your back is up against a wall. This cycle often forces a reassessment of some area (or all) of your life, and it’s not uncommon to discover that it’s time to release something or someone from it.
On another level, it’s possible that you could feel physically drained at this time. If so, it’s time to evaluate your diet, exercise routine and overall health.
Truth be told, this is often a discouraging cycle but whether you do or to what degree will depend on your circumstances at the time. If you’ve made good decisions and taken care of your health, this cycle could be the equivalent of an overdue tune-up.
However, should it turn out that you feel defeated during this cycle, the best thing to do is to assess the damage, accept your role in it, cut your losses and plan your comeback from a wiser perspective.
If you’re born under Taurus or Capricorn, at some point Saturn will sextile your Sun. In predictive astrology, a sextile represents opportunities that need to be recognized and developed. This means that you should be on the lookout for helpful people and/or advantageous circumstances that can help you further your personal and/or professional goals, and when you spot any act on them!
Now, if you do nothing of the sort during this cycle, you won’t suffer any ill effects or setbacks. However, since Saturn rewards hard work and each Saturn cycle has a direct bearing on subsequent ones, it’s best to give it your all and make the most of it.
If you’re born under Gemini or Leo, at some point Saturn will quincunx your Sun. When it does, you’re likely to experience a situation in some area of your life that will make you feel like you’re between a rock and a hard place. Is there a way out? Of course, but it’s going to require some type of adjustment that you’ll view as inconvenient and/or may feel a bit uncomfortable for you.
On a different note, although it is still considered a minor aspect, the quincunx is strongly associated with potential health issues. Since Saturn represents restriction and the Sun rules the heart and spine, should you experience any symptoms that could be related to the heart or spine, such as restricted circulation or back issues, it’s a good idea to check them out.
If you’re born under Aquarius or Aries, at some point Saturn will make a semi-sextile to your Sun. This minor aspect has such a mild influence that you can expect to remain under Saturn’s radar. This is a welcome relief for the Water Bearers, who have been the subject of Saturn’s scrutiny for the past few years. As for the Warriors, this is your last opportunity to make good before the celestial taskmaster sets his sights on you.
