[ALL SIGNS The Saturn- Neptune square affects us on a personal level. It isn’t just about the world at large (see previous articles). There are those who have lied to themselves about reality who will find their denial tactics must come to an abrupt end. Something will be standing in the mirror that represents a cracked illusion. You can no longer tell yourself that things will be all right, that this can’t happen to you. Almost everyone is in denial about something. In the Western world, this is one of our favorite self-defense tactics. However, we are probably not lost forever. The solution is evident within the problem. It is recognizable because it involves effort, work, and ongoing attention. Those are Saturn’s requirements to extricate ourselves from the mire of difficulty. So we must shore ourselves up and do what is necessary to eliminate this problem. See below for clues to how this aspect relates to you. Read the paragraphs for both your sun sign and ascendant.

[SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You have needed to keep your financial belt pretty tight for well over a year. It is possible that you fantasized that some kind of help from another source would rescue you. Unfortunately, it is probably not true from now through 2016. You are realizing the illusion of what we call security. You need a paycheck of your own.

[SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Any relationship that could be identified as “codependent,” is showing itself in full clarity now. You may be the one who has rescued ad nauseum and now you no longer have the emotional energy to continue. Your sense of future direction may feel fuzzy and without structure. Yet you must give it some kind of form in order to proceed.

[CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You know in your heart that you have come almost to the end of a career cycle. You need to break free and get some rest before you tackle the next big project. But it’s scary out there and of course, you need to earn a living. Give special attention to your vision and also your hearing. Don’t allow symptoms to go on without a thorough check. [AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Financial resources may be drained. Don’t go into debt by not giving attention to your checking account. If you see this developing, stop and make a solid plan for how you are going to pay for what is needed. You may be taking on someone else’s financial problem. Be aware of the cost to you for doing this.

[PISCES (February 19 to March 20) The mask you wear out in the world has been fading. You have sustained a blow to your ego. Maybe you have defined yourself by your occupation or status in the world, and the sand under your feet is being sucked out from under you. Don’t waste time in paralysis. Saturn’s requirement is that you reconstruct and recommit to your direction.

[ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The “rules” of law, justice, and all bodies of authority seem to be demanding more than their fair share of you. What you feel may be exaggerated, but it is clear that something is wrong. It is possible that you may be the victim of false rumors or gossip. Now is the time you may have to pay for any shirked responsibilities of the past.

[TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Problems may reveal themselves via any of the following areas: resources that you share with others (partner’s income, investments, IRS), issues concerning your estate and/or your inheritance, debtors that won’t pay, or debts that you owe. Meanwhile some of those whom you have called friends seem to evaporate.

[GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) There are issues in your partnership that require attention. Perhaps your partner has a loss in his/her family and this requires you to take on more responsibility than is the norm. You must be the strong one now. This kind of issue can generate questions about your level of commitment. If the relationship is good, it will survive and become stronger.

[CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your Faith will be tested in any number of situations over the next few months. Saturn is demanding that you have all your details, files, and requirements in order. It could be called the Reality Police. Your physical strength may be undermined by a long term condition that heretofore has not shown its face. It will require effort, work, and attention to control and repair it.

[LEO (July 23 to August 22) Realities may be turning up in your romance, creative life, and relationships to children. It is possible that you are reaching the limits of your ability to manage things alone. In some way that may not be clear you are actually losing valuable resources. Partner may not be able to contribute his/her share. This could be simply inflation, or wherever you keep your savings is being charged unfairly. Check your account(s) for deceptive practices.

[VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Demands from family on your time and energy is eroding your primary relationship. Or perhaps it has been slowly degrading over time and now you are forced to recognize the problem. If you want to resolve this issue, more work, effort, and ongoing attention has promise of correcting the issue.

[LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) The circle of your environment is becoming smaller, perhaps because your physical body can no longer keep up the pace. Give attention to exercise, better sleep, or eliminate addictive patterns that may be draining your energy. Use discernment about whether you are taking over problems that don’t belong to you. Don’t give away your energy on other people’s issues.
