Stable relationships where there is mutual support when it’s needed are very much appreciated. This transit can be used to reinforce these relationships with gestures to show how much they’re valued. Fair weather friends shouldn’t wait for much attention from you because your true friends will be treated as a priority. What you expect from those closest to you will be reasonable and you will forgive or not care about their flaws. Financial matters concerning what you spend and earn can be realistically assessed to see what to improve without being harsh on yourself. Getting creative about adding more options to your earnings is a positive step forward.

The lessons learned during experiences when you were vulnerable were necessary to make you a stronger and more resilient person. It’s time to construct your life into how you want to live. This won’t happen rapidly, but putting together the foundations is a good start for now. Being self-disciplined without punishing yourself, or working too hard is the most productive option to take. If you need to tap into the knowledge of an expert of a particular area, they should be willing to help if they see you would make good use of their assistance. If an individual requires you expertise it will be because you fell an obligation and a duty to offer it to them.

Mars at 2 degrees 36 minutes Cancer is trine Saturn at 2 degrees 36 minutes Pisces at 7.04 pm GMT 8.04 pm BST 30th March 2023.

There will be enough energy and patience to deal with demanding tasks, but it will come and go in waves. This prevents falling into the pitfall of continuously working until reaching burn out. Instead you should be able to pace yourself, which in the long run will help you to get more done. Working at self-care will be very satisfying. It’s not about self-indulgence; it’s about taking better care of yourself in the form to the work / life balance. If you need those in a position of authority to be kind to you, try to appeal to their emotional side to gain their empathy. For most of us this is a good transit for taking action to nurture and take responsibility for what is most dear to us.

Venus in Scorpio square Saturn in Aquarius 7th November 2022

Venus at 18 degrees 47 minutes Scorpio is square Saturn at 18 degrees 47 minutes Aquarius at 7.34 am GMT 7th November 2022.

Relating to people is inhibited during this transit if their values appear to be at odds with yours. Those who push against the conventions of traditional authority for the sake of it, won’t get much support from you if you can’t see the reason for it. The disruption caused won’t be appreciated by you at all. In relationships, there may be a shift in how responsibilities are accepted. If too many compromises have been made this will need to be addressed to stabilize the relationship. Prepare for “tightening your belt” where finances are concerned. Demands for payment could arrive “out of the blue”, so it will be necessary to find out what you really want and need and plan accordingly.

Mars in Gemini trine retrograde Saturn in Aquarius 28th September 2022

Mars at 19 degrees 6 minutes Gemini is trine retrograde Saturn at 19 degrees 6 minutes Aquarius at 5.51 am GMT 6.51 am BST 28th September 2022.

Tasks that demand time and energy without the need for concentration on one thing will be good for completing many small chores instead of one big project. This doesn’t mean that you can’t be efficient and organised though. Combining intelligence with hard graft will help you to avoid gruelling work that isn’t very productive. Finding your own way of developing your own structures instead of blindly following what others do, is the best way forward for you. Patience is a virtue but relying on your own wisdom from experience provides a few short cuts so you won’t have to wait for as long as expected.

The Sun at 21 degrees 54 minutes Leo is opposition retrograde Saturn at 21 degrees 54 minutes Aquarius at 5.11 pm GMT 6.11 pm BST 14th August 2022.

There could be more responsibilities that have to be dealt with that have been put to the back of the queue until now. Being irresponsible now may have consequences in the near future after Saturn has changed to direct motion. If you’re under pressure or coping with hardship at the moment, it’s as good a time as any to take your current circumstances seriously. Take stock of what is genuinely essential to you, conserve what you can and seek options to work hard to get what you need.

Enthusiasm and patience work well with each other during this transit. Any reluctance to progress in new directions can be put to one side. Don’t expect instant results from the effort you make right now. Think of it as sowing seeds for a crop and waiting for a harvest. If you have to manage with less than you usually have, then inventive and quick solutions will arrive to make it more bearable. Assertiveness when using discipline to maintain control in circumstances that are unusual and may not have been encountered before, can help you to go through testing times with more ease than expected.

The Sun at 25 degrees 9 minutes Aquarius is trine retrograde Saturn at 25 degrees 9 minutes Aquarius at 7.14 am GMT 8.14 am BST 16th June 2022.

If you want to get your affairs in order and build up stability to alleviate any anxieties caused by unusual events that could be oppressive, this transit will ease the process. Reviewing what freedoms are available within the restrictions that have been placed upon you will give you the chance to see what you can do to adapt and play to your strengths. There is an urge to rejoin the path to attain personal accomplishments that have been put to one side due to the time and effort that is required. Although the weight of this falls only on your shoulders, what you gain is earned and belongs to you.

Sun in Taurus square Saturn in Aquarius 15th May 2022

The Sun at 24 degrees 55 minutes Taurus is square Saturn at 24 degrees 22 minutes Aquarius at 6.50 pm GMT 7.50 pm BST 15th May 2022.

It’s possible to find yourself stuck in a rut when you least expect and a lot of effort will be needed to gain freedom from the restrictions placed upon you. Obligations and responsibilities that have to be fulfilled will feel like a burden that you can do without. This is not the most relaxing transit for those who have given in to the trappings of laziness recently. For those who don’t feel they have the time and energy to do the work they’re supposed to do could be in for a shock if they ignore it, as the consequences of not doing so could have a cost in the long-term.

Mercury at 22 degrees 37 minutes Aries is sextile Saturn at 22 degrees 37 minutes Aquarius at 3.15 am GMT 4.15 am BST 7th April 2022.

Knowledge that is potentially ground breaking or can be put to use for ultra modern purposes can be learned very quickly. Perhaps not in much detail but enough to cover what’s important right now. Speaking your mind about or to those in authority or who are considered to be traditionalists could bring forth surprising results in a good way. Those who were thought of as being struck in their conventional ways may be receptive to new and innovative ideas and methods. Those who were pioneers in the past are forthcoming in encouraging brave choices from those who want to be pioneers for the future.
