While Saturn transited Libra since 2009, your romantic relationships, as well as relationships with your children if appropriate, have been put to the test. You’ve made significant changes to these relationships, left behind a romance, or strengthened your stance on how you derive pleasure from your life. This happened because Saturn was moving through your solar fifth house.
Now that it’s behind you, Saturn turns his critical eye on matters of the sixth house, and you are likely to feel a certain level of pressure in the areas of work, daily functions, habits, and health.
At the beginning of the transit, you might find yourself more accountable than ever when it comes to your work. You may initially feel bogged down by what seems like undue pressure in your routines. The key word here is “seems”, simply because the nature of Saturn is such that the pressure it brings is never truly undue. In fact, Saturn knows better than us, and it is in reality very much “due”. Why? Because things we may have previously neglected or disregarded now need to be faced, managed, and handled responsibly.
How can you make best use of your time? How can you manage your day-to-day life, and your body, more effectively? These are questions that demand answers now. Saturn pressures here make you acutely aware of all of the “fluff” that you have surrounding your daily routines and your work. Spring cleaning is now in order!
This is an excellent time for starting new regimens to better your health and well-being, such as regular exercise, more structured and productive use of your time, and so forth. Organizing your work space is appropriate, and so is re-organizing your daily schedule. In fact, you might be faced with life events that force you to restructure these things, or at least provide you with the motivation to get your act together.
Traditionally, this transit was associated with health problems. Generally, though, if health concerns manifest, they are ones that are manageable. They signal the need for change in diet, routines, and habits. By the end of the transit, you will likely have learned to be more productive and efficient, to live in a healthier manner, and to be considerably more focused.
Especially while Saturn sextiles Pluto, from December 2012 to September 2013, but also to some degree for the entire transit, you have increased motivation and determination to kick bad habits and routines.
