Sun square Saturn: Nose to the Grindstone

The Sun at 29 degrees Capricorn forms a square to Saturn at 29 degrees Libra at 1:20 pm PT.

This is one of those days when a lot of us feel defeated, as if we’re working at cross purposes. Authority issues raise their ugly heads and some folks find themselves backed into a corner, forced to explain themselves when they come under attack by bosses, coworkers, teachers or parents.

Even though crawling under a rock feels like the preferable course of action, each of us has to take care of business. There are limitations now on individual leadership, especially when it bumps up against corporate values or hierarchy. It’s easy to let this heavy energy get us down, but don’t linger on feelings of rejection, loneliness or isolation. They’re only temporary.

Avoid confrontations by working alone. Keeping our noses to the grindstone and promising ourselves a good reward at the end of the week when this is all finished will help us get through it.

If you have the Sun square Saturn as a natal aspect:

It seems to you that no matter how hard you work, no matter how responsible you try to be, no matter how dedicated you are, something always seems to get in the way of accomplishing the goals you set out for yourself. It’s very frustrating, and sooner or later you arrive at the point of thinking, ‘Why try anything anyway? Nothing ever works out for me!’

Don’t stay in this unfortunate spot for long, because it’s not true. The trick here is to see that it’s not outer circumstances that create problems for you; those problems originate from within yourself. Oh, you can blame your father, or your boss, or the government, but that will only work for so long.

The key to overcoming your inner frustration is to plan carefully, work hard, and don’t permit yourself to be overwhelmed by obstacles. Don’t give up when the going gets a little tough. Instead, take a deep breath, and keep on going. Sooner rather than later, you’ll find that your strength and endurance improve, that you can overcome difficulties, and that in fact, you are a stronger person for having overcome them.
