Saturn is going to restrict your initiatives and enthusiasm in life.

Saturn, which is down-to-earth and cautious, meets the Sun, which is your vitality and will. This is not a good time to start new projects, but for sure good to consolidate old ones.

This transit is maturing your personality: your attitude is more humble, realistic and you take everything with more wisdom and patience.

Responsibilities and commitment are going to be strong during this timeframe. Whether you ripen the fruits of the previous hard work or instead feel oppressed by this situation, depends on how you acted in the last fourteen years when Saturn was opposite to the Sun in your birth chart.

You might feel frustrated and disheartened by the lack of vitality and visible success, but remember: this time is for perseverance, slowness and reflection.

On the inner side, your ego has a chance to lose its power and you might enjoy being more humble and simple.
