Saturn is a planet that a lot of people fear. As the teacher, sometimes its lessons are learned in the hardest ways (actually, most of them are, but that's because we're stubborn!).
We can often view Saturn as a burden, but this shouldn't be the view. Saturn is only a burden if you don't deal with it properly. But if you can work with it, then you can take some control, and once Saturn sees you're doing the right thing, Saturn'll start helping you out.
The Key to Managing Saturn: Take Responsibility
One of the keys to managing Saturn is to take responsibility. Again, something humans aren't too fond of! But Saturn requires you to be more responsible with whatever areas of life are ruled by the sign and house Saturn is in with your natal chart, or house transit Saturn is transiting or planet it's aspecting.
It can often be very difficult at first, and you may not see much progress made right away. But after some time, Saturn can come to your side. Saturn doesn't come to your side right away, because Saturn wants to make sure you're serious about doing it right this time. That means it can feel hard at first, and maybe for a while, before things turn around.
Why does responsibility help? Taking responsibility can help you to take control over your life, and Saturn can give you more in terms of progress and success when you are responsible.
Saturn's requirements are for you to:
It may feel like a burden when you . . .
All of this can feel like a burden when you don't want to adhere to it, which usually means you're running from something you don't want to face or being self-sabotaging. Then it's even more important for you to work with Saturn though.
Be mindful of Saturn instead of fearful. Take on the responsibilities head-on rather than seeing Saturn as a burden. Saturn can be a great ally in life when you've worked with Saturn and acknowledge the wise teacher Saturn is.
