The “illuminating” Sun opposes “taskmaster” Saturn. Normally with this influence we tend to adopt more of a serious mindset and focus on our perceived duties and responsibilities (or whatever our “socialized self” thinks it should be doing), which Saturn represents. If we do opt to go this route, and focus on what we view to be our obligations (or karma), instead of maybe indulging in more pleasurable pursuits, we may end up being quite productive and successful today, as Sun-Saturn can inspire us to be more disciplined and steadfast to see things through to the end.
This may also be a very good day to simply reflect upon the structures (relationships, daily practices, activities) that we have built up in our world and determine how they are either supporting or hindering us. If they do seem to be thwarting our progress now, or interfering perhaps with our desired vision of work/life balance for our lives, we may want to consider what steps we could take now to make our lives better and more fulfilling in the future.
Interestingly, last year when we had this same Sun-Saturn influence, President Obama’s presidential campaign announced that day that he was going to run for a second term in office. Too, Sun-Saturn often correlates with events, developments or perspectives that seem to be more “karmic” nature, or that seem to really resonate with our life purpose in some way.
On another level, sometimes with Sun-Saturn we may feel “cut off from others,” or simply wish to be left alone, as Saturn governs boundaries and our sense of separateness. Too, either scenario does not necessarily mean that we cannot have warm, intimate encounters now, if we so choose to do so, and are also willing to put ourselves out there on the line to make this possible. Too, it may even mean with Sun-Saturn that we come to a deeper understanding today of how valuable it can be for us to have set boundaries in our relationships as an extension of self-care.
Also, often with Sun-Saturn we are simply too critical of ourselves, too tuned into our perceived warts or blemishes and blind to our special strengths or assets. Additionally with Sun-Saturn we sometimes seek out older or more mature types to be around, with Saturn ruling father figures. “I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude.” Henry David Thoreau.
