A Sun-Saturn square influencing today can serve as a reminder of an area of your life that requires patience, dear Aries. You may not get what you want just now, probably due to career or other responsibilities and limitations with Saturn at the top of your solar chart. However, delays or slowdowns can help you refocus your attention on your priorities, and as you do, new and improved methods can be discovered. It’s better to focus on what’s best for you in the long-term rather than go for immediate gratification. If the pressures of others’ expectations weigh on you, consider being clearer about your need for appreciation. People may forget that you’re only human and need some positive feedback or encouragement from time to time.
The Sun and Saturn are in conflict today, dear Taurus, and while this can point to a small roadblock, it can ultimately encourage you to strengthen a weak area. Your attention may turn to a flaw or problem, and an apparent delay can motivate you to batten down the hatches. Changing your strategy or approach may be all that it takes to get things back on track. You have a stronger than usual need to express yourself through the work you do or service you provide these days. If you feel unappreciated for all that you do, work on a personal priority and return to your projects refreshed. Aim to please yourself by meeting your responsibilities. Resolve to take things one step at a time and to avoid pushing yourself. Timing may be off, but it’s temporary.
The Sun and Saturn form a challenging square today, dear Gemini, and if something’s wearing down or showing signs of strain, it may very well break now. Mind you, most of the time with Saturn, things can be fixed and, ultimately, improved, and it’s best to focus on solving problems. There may be discouraging reminders or indicators that a project, plan, dream, or idea needs tweaks, and it’s important not to rush through things. Abide by the rules today for best results, since Saturn frowns upon corner-cutting. If you’re experiencing some doubts, they may very well get you to a better perspective. Filling your heart’s desire may not be straightforward just for now, but you’ll get there with a little work.
The Sun is encouraging you to get comfortable in your personal life these days, dear Cancer, and today, it faces a square to Saturn. It may be that someone is unnecessarily critical or a black cloud over your day. Life lessons tend to come in unflattering packages with this influence, but obstacles and missteps can very well teach you important things. It’s better to work on patching up areas where you feel a little too vulnerable. You may need to go without on some level, but this is also temporary, but steps taken now can better prepare you for the future. Keeping things simple can ultimately speed things up, even if it feels that you’re backtracking at the moment!
A Sun-Saturn square which happens twice a year occurs today, dear Leo, reminding you of a constraint or reality and testing whether current plans or endeavors are strong. Responsibilities or problems can seem more burdensome now, but it’s a good idea to view any apparent setbacks as opportunities to make changes before moving forward. Through them, you may discover things you’ve overlooked or better methods. It may very well be that you’re overdoing your studies or personal interests to the detriment of your work or health, and if this is the case, look for a balance and do the catch-up work now to get back on track. Rest and conserve energy rather than push things or yourself today.
A Sun-Saturn square today can seem to magnify blockages or obligations, dear Virgo, and just a day after the Full Moon, you could be more sensitive than usual to problems. A responsibility or reality check related to a relationship or creative project can be in focus now with Saturn currently transiting your solar fifth house. How much you have or how you spend or earn your money may be an issue for some of you. Circumstances or people seem to be disapproving or unhelpful today, but while a bit of a downer, you’re learning about what you need and working towards long-term happiness rather than short-term satisfaction. You may discover resources you didn’t know you had.
The Sun and Saturn form a square today, dear Libra, as they do twice a year, and it can be a checkpoint for your goals and plans. More likely than not, it’s about facing a limit or reality check. Since the Sun is currently in your sign, you may find it challenging to satisfy both your need for independence and desire for security and assurance or to pursue your personal goals without feeling you’re letting someone down. Someone may be disapproving, or chores and responsibilities are overwhelming. The key now is to be patient, seek out long-term satisfaction rather than instant gratification, and practice self-discipline. You’ll feel better about pursuing your desires if you’ve given your responsibilities their due attention. This way you go forward without guilt.
The Sun and Saturn form a square today as they do twice a year, dear Scorpio, and this particular one can serve to magnify problems, limits, and blocks. With Saturn in your communications sector this year, you may feel misunderstood or left without a voice, and possibly overworked or burdened with things to do and problems to fix. There may be criticisms, delays, or other kinks in your plans. The best strategy with Saturn challenges present is to adjust your speed, follow the rules, exercise patience, and avoid pushing things forward until they’re genuinely ready to move. Conserve your energy if you can and focus on strengthening weaker areas of your life or work.
The Sun and Saturn form a challenging aspect today, dear Sagittarius, and this can be a time for drawing upon some patience and following some rules. There can be a break in the flow now as you face an obstacle, and limits may seem more glaring or difficult than usual, primarily related to money. Even if you want to push something ahead, it may be better to conserve your energy and resources. You may be dealing with people who are grumpy or critical, too, since we’re all experiencing this influence in different ways, and facing blockages can be frustrating. The best strategy now is to focus on long-term benefits and keep expectations simple. Resign yourself to making edits and adjustments rather than bold moves and remind yourself it’s temporary.
With the Sun’s square to Saturn today, dear Capricorn, it’s an important time for recommitting to your goals after making some necessary adjustments that better suit your purpose. It’s not the time to push, prod, or go against the grain, just for the time being. Saturn periodically tests your goals and plans, and the best way to deal with this pressure is to do the best you can and exercise patience. This aspect pulls your attention to some of your bigger challenges, which might feel overwhelming at first. With Saturn in your sign, you might be feeling a little cut-off or set back. This is a very temporary condition, and backing down is sometimes the better strategy until strength and confidence return. Instead of focusing on the short term, look for ways to maximize long-term success or happiness.
Interactions with others tend to trigger old problem areas today, dear Aquarius. A Sun-Saturn square may temper your enthusiasm somewhat, which can be useful from time to time, even if it’s not especially fun! It may help you get back on track but don’t push this so far that you waste time on feeling discouraged. It’s important to pick yourself up and solve problems. You might need to revise plans or go back on something you’ve said. Circumstances can seem to conspire to remind you of your limitations, and the best strategy now is to think about what’s genuinely best for you in the long term rather than short-term since focusing too intently on getting what you want at this time can only serve to frustrate you.
Many people are a little sensitive today, dear Pisces, with a Sun-Saturn square aspect occurring just after a Full Moon. For you, friends or lovers, or instead a plan or dream, may fall short of your expectations in some manner. Part of you is seeking out a bit of drama or intensity from your projects and relationships, but another part is content keeping your distance. It may be best to consider this a day for catching your breath and looking for better strategies for pursuing your goals. In some situations, it may be time to think about whether something in your life needs to evolve or dissolve. While serious energy can surround a relationship today, adjusting expectations as a direct result may be useful. Thinking of this time as a short break from life’s dramas might help you to lighten up. If you’re off track, this is a time for reorienting yourself.
