    Saturn transiting in your first house stimulates a restructuring of several aspects of your personality, by letting go of those which aren't useful anymore, and then building new structures to represent yourself to the world.

    This might bring a surge of responsibilities and a heavy attitude toward life. Your job might suffer from this transit, but now it is advisable to concentrate your efforts inwardly.

    If you accept Saturn's suggestions to look into yourself, the results will bring wisdom and a more grounded view of life during this transit.
