Transiting Saturn conjunct natal Ascendant
This transit gives you the opportunity to deepen your wisdom and to mature as a human being.
To accomplish that, you might need to let go of certain aspects of yourself and in your external identifications which aren't useful for your evolution now.
Now you want to set long-lasting and stable structures based on wisdom and hard work. You might also question your relationship with people and you might feel and become lonely for a while until you build a new supporting circle of people.
As well, love relationships are being questioned for their usefulness for your personality. You might be tempted to isolate yourself from other human beings, and this might be a necessary stage to concentrate on yourself.
There's love of essentiality and rejection of triviality. A serious attitude transpires also from your external appearance.

You are being challenged to mature into new roles in your life which will redefine who you are and how you see yourself.
This transition is not easily embraced. On some level you may sense that maturing is equivalent to harder lessons, more obligations, restrictions and responsibilities. Perhaps you see the price that comes with this new power or status.
You may be depressed or in denial about physical signs of aging or changes in your energy level.
You may also be resisting this growth because it reminds you of family patterns you vowed to not repeat, yet see re-enacted in your choices.
Adjust your views of responsibility and structure and you will make better use of power that is now coming your way.
