Who told you that the transit of Saturn in your sign would usher in a critical and difficult period? Actually, this is one of the many clichés that paint a gloomy picture of the planet and represent it as a saboteur of your happiness. On the other hand, you should ask yourself a more philosophical question: what is happiness?
Saturn will be in your sign for the whole of 2013 and will extend its transit to the following year, opening up a new phase in your life. Indeed, over this period, you’ll be required to resolve some delicate situations, which may cause some anxiety, discontent or tension with those around you. In other words, the time has come to reflect, look inside yourself and see the light at the end of the tunnel, after having accepted responsibility and resolved any difficult situations that you’ve overlooked up to now. In this regard, the first experience in this process may be challenging, so you may feel overburdened with responsibility and work. On the other hand, this will be the price to pay for any future improvements, since things will begin to get better in the second half of the year, especially when the trine of Jupiter from Cancer begins on June 26.
In actual fact, your efforts will be recognised and rewarded from late spring onwards, thanks to the additional support of the trine of Mercury in Cancer from May 31 to August 8. Everything will change for the better, because the planet will help you realise many projects and unblock some stalemate situations over which you’ve racked your brain for a long time. The stars will invite you to be patient, especially in the first half of the year. Then, when the time is ripe, you’ll be able to give of your best and play a major role at the right moment.
Obviously, this will influence your professional and social spheres, so you should take into account any commitments and responsibilities. In this regard, you should be more cunning and take advantage of the opportunities that you’ll be offered by learning to be more diplomatic and strategic. In this way, you’ll be able to achieve some outstanding results and understand the true power of Saturn, which will help you mature and strengthen the most important aspects of your life.
If you want to take over the helm of any important initiatives in order to enhance your prestige, or if you want your merits to be recognised, you’ll be able to seize many opportunities. To be precise, the months of March, June, July, October and November will be the most promising ones, since you’ll be able to count on an effective insight and charisma that will help you propose your ideas and convince the right people.
From the afternoon of February 5 to the early hours of April 14, the trine of Mercury in Pisces will make you particularly perceptive, so you’ll be able to seize some good opportunities, especially on a professional level. Moreover, this period will be particularly favourable in reaching a fair agreement in any asset negotiations or concluding a hereditary settlement. Students will be able to count on some unexpected support and, in general, the situation will be encouraging for all of you, since the sky will help you break a deadlock and go forth in a serene and purposeful atmosphere.
Moreover, remember that Mars in Pisces will continue to support you until March 12, thus increasing your energy and determination in order to hit the mark on all fronts. On February 7–8, you may have a hunch which could shed light on some aspects of reality that have been overshadowed for too long.
Mercury will be transiting Cancer for a long–term period, so it will offer your Sun its brilliant effects from 31 May to August 8. The planet will give of its best when Mars will also be in Cancer from July 13, and this effective combination will offer you plenty of interesting opportunities for your professional sphere. Moreover, it will give you some well–deserved recognition and help you achieve some satisfying results in economic terms, considering that Jupiter will also support you on a practical level. These summer months will be important for you, since they will reward you for the many efforts that you’ll have made in the previous months. So, if you invest your resources in worthwhile initiatives, the second half of the year will bear many concrete results. This period will also favour your relational and social spheres, by allowing you to make new contacts and acquaintances, who can be helpful if you want to begin a fruitful collaboration or teamwork.
Finally, from September 29 to December 5, Mercury will transit your sign and will invite you to focus on those aspects which need to be defined in your professional and financial spheres, especially if you’re dealing with any hereditary or legal matters. In this regard, you should be particularly cautious and attentive to any details. From October 15, the transit of Mars in your sign will help you overcome any obstacles and achieve one of your top goals for the umpteenth time. Despite the gloomy and pessimistic forecast about Saturn’s conjunction, 2013 will be full of satisfaction and success. Of course, you shouldn’t expect pennies from heaven, but you should work toward your goals, by using your strength and intelligence. For this reason, the results will be certain and lasting in the coming years.
As for your emotional sphere, the situation will be particularly varied and many of you will feel the desire to fall in love again, as if you were shy teenagers. In other words, the stars will inflame you with passion and allow you to rediscover some erotic sensations, which aren’t just to do with sex, but also with the desire to feel special when you are with your partner. From February 26 to the early hours of March 22, Venus in Pisces will make you romantic and seductive, while the harmonious aspect of Mars will add a pinch of fiery passion. If you’re single, this planetary combination will allow you to make some new and stimulating friendships, while it will also help those of you in a couple rediscover the harmony and pleasant emotions that seemed to be lost. The most promising days will be March 2–3.
The trine of Venus in Cancer from June 3 to 27 will usher in a romantic and passionate summer, when you may make some destinic encounters, which could perk up your mood and stimulate some feelings that will turn the clocks back. This new sensation will help you test yourself in your sentimental sphere, whether you’ll do so with your partner or with a new person. You’ll give of your best in your relationship and you’ll experience some unforgettable emotions. Then you won’t have to go without them in the coming months.
Your season of love will begin on September 11 and will end on October 7. If you give in to enjoying your emotions in this period, you’ll be able to make up for lost time. Actually, any decisions to do with your sentimental sphere will be lasting and become stable in the following months, especially if you’ve met a special person. In this regard, the long–term sextile of Venus in Capricorn from November 5 to early March 2014 will bring stability to your private life and will encourage those relationships that want to mature, by making some long–term plans together.
