Yesterday we discussed the qualities of Saturn going retrograde at 18 Libra. Today I'll offer a few hints about what you need to learn based in the house it falls in.
There are other interpretations than these, of course. That said, these may provide your imagination with some imagery and themes to help you open to new perspectives on your ability to respond to Saturn's challenges over the next 8 months.
Please keep two things in mind: 1) These are approximate for the birthdays I've noted, and 2) if your birthday isn't specifically listed, then your lessons involve the houses your birthday falls between. (In other words, if your birthday is between September 2 and 19, then Saturn is transiting both your 1st and your 2nd during the next 8 months.)
1st house: Get a new perspective on newly accepted obligations and duties. Examining what you've learned from experience, reorganize your inner and outer limitations and involvements. Accept the discipline as a learning rigor to repair a more ideal sense of self. This applies to your Solar chart if you were born between September 10-October 3.
2nd house: Find a more appropriate balance in your values and how you view and use the resources at your disposal. See that the triumphs and limitations in these things are the result of what you did and did not do in the recent past. Use your values to repair the ideal. This applies to your Solar chart if you were born between August 9 and September 2.
3rd house: You're restructuring how you view things and communicate them. This could be a time to repair relationships in your environment, or with your brothers and sisters, or also a time when consequences come home to roost. Train your mind and speech and repair the ideal. This applies to your Solar chart if you were born between July 9 and August 2.
4th house: You're restructuring your base of operations by viewing the limitations and strengths of your early upbringing. This begins a long term rise to a greater authority or visibility. Train your roots and flowers will result. Repair the foundations of your life. This applies to your Solar chart if you were born between This applies to your Solar chart if you were born between June 8 and July 2.
5th house: Retreat within to repair self-confidence to express more creativity. You will be seeing the consequences of how you've related to children, as well as your own playfulness and enthusiasms (or lack thereof.) Repair your connection to joyous self-expression! This applies to your Solar chart if you were born between May 8-31.
6th house: This will show you the consequences of how you work, and how you've cared for your health or not. This gives opportunities to restore the balance in these areas preparing you for new ways of relating to others. Repair your sense of a greater ideal of service. This applies to your Solar chart if you were born between April 7-30.
7th house: You're going to get to repair how you relate to others as an equal, as well as see the consequences for not doing this or letting things get out of balance with your partner. Let go of the need to control or be too rigid with others. Restore a proper proportion. This applies to your Solar chart if you were born between March 7-30.
8th house: This will help you view past losses from different perspectives. You may get insights into others' values that help you restore your sense of fairness. This balances various desires with the consequences of those desires, helping restore a more just view. This applies to your Solar chart if you were born between February 6-28.
9th house: This will show you the consequences of truths you've held up to now, and offers opportunities to mature into a more balanced larger view and sense of truth. Use inner equilibrium and learning disciplines to find a view that moderates the opposites. This applies to your Solar chart if you were born between January 7-30.
10th house: This will bring blowback for past authoritarian behavior, but benefits for willingness to take responsibility in public ways. It offers ways to repair the elegance and style of your public image. Be honorable in restoring your sense of what's just and fair. This applies to your Solar chart if you were born between December 8-31.
11th house: This crystallizes new goals and ambitions while bringing the results of past imbalances in these and group involvements. A good time to repair friendships. Look at how past ambitions brought you to what you're dealing with while repairing your ideal of group work. This applies to your Solar chart if you were born between November 9 and December 1.
12th house: Mature into a new sense of self as you spend time in solitude adjusting the ideal of "the movie of your life." This can help you see how past motives brought you consequences that are yielding either rewards, sorrows, or both. Repair a balanced self-sufficiency. This applies to your Solar chart if you were born between October 9 and November 1.
