SUN SQUARE OR OPPOSITE SATURN in your Yearly Solar Return
Sun square or opposite Saturn in the solar return chart implies that limitations and delays are frequently associated with external influences, and structures are more likely to be restrictive than supportive.
The root of any problem, issue, situation, or objection can lie elsewhere, not with your efforts.
If the problem is another person, try going to an authority. If the problem in a difficult situation, try circumventing the situation. If the problem is an issue, address it directly. If the problem is an objection coming from a government agency, institution, or regulatory commission, you should meet standards or seek a waiver. In many instances, you can get through this time by appeasing reasonable demands and fulfilling justifiable requirements.
Unfortunately, demands are not necessarily reasonable or rational. Perhaps there are only trivial reasons for delays, restrictions, or conflicts. Regardless of the imposition and situation, it is up to you to handle circumstances in the most positive and productive manner. Accept responsibility for your own actions and work as best you can within limits you cannot control or change. If possible, work to implement effective solutions to difficulties. You can be the stimulus for change. If it does not work out, let go and move on. Into every life a little rain must fall and this might be your year. Complaining will only lead to frustration, isolation, and loneliness.
Saturn has been called “the great teacher.” There could be a lesson to be learned here even if it is not an easy lesson to address.
The productive characteristics associated with Saturn can function even with difficult aspects. They include persistence, patience, organization, stability, practicality, and realistic expectations. When your behavior is consistent with these beneficial traits, progress and self-mastery can result though matters might take longer than expected. On the other hand, when you shirk responsibility and buck authority needlessly, circumstances can deteriorate into a stalemate situation in which no one wins.
This is not meant to be a depressing time, but you must be realistic. Accurate perceptions of existing situations are essential to either accept or alter future expectations. Those anticipating idealistic or overly optimistic outcomes, find reality stark. Some individuals may feel depressed during the solar return year either because their expectations were not met or because they did not put in the necessary effort to manifest what was intended, wanted, and/or needed.
You must be both realistic and patient in assessing your options. Progress can occur, but it tends to occur slowly and involve careful planning, hard work, and discipline. It is common to be involved with a major project or task during the year that requires your full attention. Focus on finding solutions to problems. Use your skills and talents in a productive manner, and develop the expertise you need to succeed.
