Covid 19 Update:
No astrologer or astrological tool, including this AI-based engine, had foreseen the unprecedented pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus.
 
However, many experts were expecting large scale natural disasters to rock humanity. This is because the two most dreaded planets, Saturn and Pluto meet (conjuncts) at 22°46' Capricorn.
 
This is a rare cosmic influence, that impacts entire mankind, and should be over by February 2021. Astrologically, good fortunes shall prevail from 20th December 2020, when Jupiter meets Saturn - known as the "Great Conjunction".
 
Until then, be safe, and keep your loved ones safe.
 
How adverse is this influence for you?

  • Welcome to year 2023, dear Leo! This new year finds you sorting regular routines and health regimes, and day-to-day affairs. But it is not that easy right now - with Mercury and Mars in Retrograde (backward-moving) motion. You are facing communication and technology breakdowns - in a nervous and touchy state of mind, you are establishing friendly and harmonious work environment, and you are taking time to think before acting or lacking initiative. Fated events and repeating themes may reinforce, forcing you to re-think!
     
    Overall, you already have a challenging time with your relationships and dealings. And, there is chaos of sorts (or some radical change) in your occupation and public image. However, you stand optimistic and content regarding your education, knowledge, travel, perspective on life, and philosophy.
     
    Also, Mr. TIOS mentions that these decan-wise horoscopes are general observations, and far from accurate. The dates and events may vary from individual to individual - as a glance at the observations for different decans would reveal. For more appropriate observations, he needs your date of birth.

  • 8th March, 2023:
    Strict Saturn, that is purposeful and grounding in Pisces, enters the sector of your personal chart that rules your self-knowledge, intimacy, finances, and shared resources. How do you handle power? Your desire nature? Intimate relationships? What kind of obsessions and addictions do you have? What are your deep-rooted compulsions? What are your unhealthy attachments? When Saturn transits this sector, we feel pressure to answer these questions. Often, at the beginning of the transit, we are very sensitive to what seems like outer world pressures that force us to examine some of our deepest desires and attachments. These include our sexual relationships, our finances (especially with regards to debts and shared finances), and our need for control. Sometimes, Saturn transiting the eighth brings about sexual dysfunctions, whether we encounter these in ourselves or in our partners. We may face difficulties satisfying our libido and/or encounter problems with intimacy. These pressures are “designed” to make us more aware of our desire nature, and what exactly it is we want. Dissatisfaction and frustrations getting what we want, especially with reference to relationships with others and with our resources, often characterize the first part of the transit. How have we been using power? During this transit, we may find that previous methods of controlling our environment and the people in our lives simply are not effective anymore. We may not even be aware just how we have been employing power and control to date. Another realm over which the eighth house reigns is our mortality. With Saturn here, we become much more aware of our mortality. Just as Saturn transits to our Sun or Ascendant make us more conscious of our age, Saturn transiting the eighth house often brings with it a realization that we do not live forever. Of course, we know this as a fact at the back of our minds, but Saturn reminds us. Before this transit, it is generally wise to begin organizing one’s finances. If we don’t, Saturn will most likely find ways to force us to do just that. On a psychological level, we face some of our fears that are of a compulsive nature—those fears that lead us to believe we need certain things in order to survive. Take a small example of a superstition. Perhaps we perform some kind of small ritual that we feel will help protect us or give us good luck. If we do it often enough, it becomes an addiction. We are afraid that if we don’t do this little ritual, we will set ourselves up for bad luck. If we get rid of this superstition, we feel strong. Something as simple as a superstition or ritual for good luck can undermine us. Why? Because we are giving away our power over ourselves to this compulsive behavior! We are denying that we have power over our own lives. The same is true of any form of compulsive behavior and addiction. We attempt to control our lives through these behaviors, but what we are really doing is letting the addictions control us. Towards the end of the transit, we will have eliminated some deep-seated habits and attachments that have been keeping us back from feeling emotionally free. We emerge healthier and stronger. When we give in to compulsive behaviors, we give up self-control, and guilt undermines our lives. We are not ourselves. By attempting to control others, we give away our own power over ourselves. By the end of this transit, we will feel more emotionally healthy. We will have nixed some of our addictions, and mastered our superstitions. We will feel more powerful because we have given up attempting to control things we cannot or should not control, and we will have gained a feeling of self-mastery instead.
     This influence stays with you till rest of the year, and beyond.

     
     
  • 24th March, 2023:
    Transformational Pluto, that is global and progressive in Aquarius, enters the sector of your personal chart that rules your partnerships, ability to relate with others, and powers of negotiation. This extremely long-term transit suggests that you’re likely to be facing the deeper, and possibly darker, elements of your own personality through your close interactions with another. There can be power struggles and the facing of fears before eventual healing. Major changes in the structure of your close personal relationships, and in your attitude towards them, are in store. Power struggles in close personal relationships can be a theme in your life now, and this can play out in different ways.
     This influence stays with you till 11th June, 2023.

     
     
  • 20th April, 2023:
    Solar Eclipse in - arrives on your travels and experiences! A solar eclipse occurs in the daytime at new moon. A general rule of thumb regarding eclipses is to avoid major decision - making in the week before and after an eclipse. This is because new information that could change our perspective is often revealed in the week after the eclipse. There is absolutely no need to suspend projects already in progress. Essentially, it is better to take in right now - to observe and get in touch with your feelings.
     Letting go of the past is necessary in order to move forward. This Solar Eclipse marks a new beginning for you, suggesting that a new approach to the way you expand your horizons, be they physical or mental (or both). New travel plans, education goals, or adventures may be formed in the coming months, and a sense of renewal and reinvigoration with regards to your ability to expand your personal world is a strong potential. This is a phase when you will be especially busy initiating new projects or activities that expand your mind, feed your spirit for adventure, and stretch your imagination. You may feel renewed by a new perspective on your life, something philosophical or spiritual that you read or learn, or an adventure that takes you away from the mundane routines in your life.

     
     
  • 22nd April, 2023:
    Tactful Mercury turns Retrograde (backward-moving) in earth sign Taurus, afflicting your occupation and public image. You face communication and technology breakdowns, nervous anxiety, travel delays, and lost items - both lose or sometimes find - especially surrounding your career, reputation, ambitions, and social standing. You can also expect to dwell on things, reminisce about the past, or unexpectedly meet up with people from your past. This period can play havoc with your thoughts, communications, travels, and electronics. Take extra care with your words and try not to react too quickly in any arguments or if provoked. Avoid signing contracts or comitting something, because this is the riskiest times for decision-making, negotiations, communication, and transport - including a week before and after.
     This Mercury Retrograde cycle, indicates that extra care should be exercised when communicating with the public, superiors, and co-workers. You may find that communications with bosses and co-workers, and concerning professional matters in general, can be tricky during this cycle. Strive to be as clear as possible so that you are not misunderstood when dealing with the public. Put off making definite career decisions as much as possible for the time being. You may be re-thinking matters regarding your life path, which is a good idea, but it's best to think rather than act for now, as your judgment may be compromised. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with authority figures during this cycle; or, better yet, take this time to rethink concerns and grievances before talking about them prematurely.
     When this retrograde cycle ends - The best-laid plans for self-promotion may have been getting tangled during the last three weeks, but the wind is changing and you’ll begin to find it easier to chart your course, especially career wise. Correcting misconceptions about yourself is an important task to undertake, as you can’t benefit if others don’t really know where you’re at. That especially applies where you are trying to nurture valuable connections that will buoy you up in weeks to come. When you make things perfectly clear, that’s just what they become, and clearing up confusion clears the skies in general.
     This retrograde cycle especially effects you more adversely than any other zodiac sign or native. Take precaution!
     This influence stays with you till 15th May, 2023.

     
     
  • 2nd May, 2023:
    Transformational Pluto turns Retrograde (backward-moving) in opposing air sign Aquarius, afflicting your relationships and dealings. Fated events and repeating themes will reinforce on your controlling habits, compulsions, addictions or prejudices that must be eliminated - especially in matters of your partnerships, ability to relate with others, and powers of negotiation. This is a time of reflection about power and control in your life. If people have controlled or are manipulating you - then now is the time to let them go. If you have been too controlling of others or situations - then it is time to let go. This is not a time for power tripping but a time for elimination.
     Backward-moving Pluto joins along with Mercury - already retrograde, and further slows down your life.
     As with all outer planets, this period causes relatively less concern than the rarer inner planet retrogrades like Mercury, Venus, and Mars retrograde cycles.
     This influence stays with you till 11th October, 2023.

     
     
  • 5th May, 2023:
    Lunar Eclipse in - arrives on your travels and experiences! A lunar eclipse occurs at night at full moon. A general rule of thumb regarding eclipses is to avoid major decision - making in the week before and after an eclipse. This is because new information that could change our perspective is often revealed in the week after the eclipse. There is absolutely no need to suspend projects already in progress. Essentially, it is better to take in right now - to observe and get in touch with your feelings.
     Surprises surrounding matters of personal philosophy, faith, travel, and the higher mind may be in store. Something that has been "in hiding" or brewing under the surface of things comes to light, or there is a significant fruition or culmination. This could manifest, for example, as a circumstance that tests your personal belief system or that requires the need to take a leap of faith, a surprising adventure that takes you beyond your normal routine, a sudden opportunity to travel or for higher learning, the publishing of a project you've been working on, and other such possibilities.

     
     
  • 17th May, 2023:
    Optimistic Jupiter, that is tenacious and pleasure-seeking in Taurus, enters the sector of your personal chart that rules your career, reputation, ambitions, and social standing. This is a time to gain in status, particularly on the professional front, but could also indicate marriage in some cases. Jupiter in your tenth house is a very fortunate place for this expansive planet. Increased public recognition and professional success characterizes this position. This can be a time of profitable productivity, career advancement, and success in business. Work-related travel or the reaching of a wider audience is possible during this cycle. Your worldly status may change for the better. There could be a promotion, new job opportunities, a diploma or other form of major award, or a marriage. You may come into the limelight now in a positive fashion. Authority figures and influential people tend to look upon your favorably and seem to be “in your corner”. An event may occur that expands your career or professional interests, and you derive more pleasure in these activities. More freedom is likely to be experienced in your career. Integrity and honesty will get you everywhere now. The more willing you are to put yourself in the limelight, the more positive the rewards–this is not the time to be a shrinking violet! This can be a time of fulfillment of career goals if you have been working toward specific ones. Because you feel worthy of recognition and of success, these things tend to come naturally to you now.
     Please remember that Jupiter alone does not give results, your karma does! Jupiter merely gives you the wings to fly - even if, in your imaginations.
     This influence stays with you till rest of the year, and beyond.

     
    In addition - A wanting to succeed, and succeed big-time - is in the air, when the sky observes optimistic Jupiter in Taurus clashing with transformational Pluto in Aquarius - primarily influencing your occupation and public image. It could be a pet project or in your career that you feel this intense drive to reach the top. Success, power, and influence are all possible but without some care, there will be a price to pay. Ruthless determination, greed, and corruption may get you there quicker or make you more money but at what cost? Your personal life is the most likely area to suffer, especially your closest relationships.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 25th May, 2023.

     
     
  • 12th June, 2023:
    Retrograde Pluto in Capricorn, enters the sector of your personal chart that rules your work, health, services, daily routines, and habits. Destroying things which have control over you will increase your spiritual power and lead to personal mastery. Fated events and repeating themes in your routines and self-care, will reinforce on your controlling habits, compulsions, addictions or prejudices that must be eliminated for your spiritual evolution. This is a time of reflection about power and control in your life, and this is not a time for power tripping but a time for elimination. If people have controlled or are manipulating you - then now is the time to let them go. If you have been too controlling of others or situations - then it is time to let go. If you have been too smothering and controlling in a relationship, holding on too tight, then you may be forced to let go. If obsessive or compulsive behavior involving food or drugs has taken hold of your life, then events may force a turn around. Perhaps suspicion, secrecy, racism, gambling or porn are taking control and holding you back. The more intense your destructive behavior, the more extreme the detoxification or withdrawal stage will be.
     As with all outer planets, this period causes relatively less concern than the rarer inner planet retrogrades like Mercury, Venus, and Mars retrograde cycles.
     This influence stays with you till rest of the year, and beyond.

     
     
  • 18th June, 2023:
    Strict Saturn turns Retrograde (backward-moving) in water sign Pisces, afflicting your intimate world and resources. Expect additional tests and challenges in the sector that Saturn transits - as if a double-dose of contraction is enforced regarding your self-knowledge, intimacy, finances, and shared resources. You will need to deal with particular issues involving your duties and responsibilities in these areas, and face limitation, restriction, anxiety and fear - in order to overcome them. This period offer a chance to recognize and admit the problems and issues that needs sorting. Things may get so out of control that an intervention or some drastic event must occur to shake you out of your depression or isolation. In the end, you should have come to terms with the relevant issues, and hopefully find ways to strengthen the foundations. Focus and motivation leads to productiveness, achievement and recognition.
     Backward-moving Saturn joins along with Pluto - already retrograde, and further slows down your life.
     As with all outer planets, this period causes relatively less concern than the rarer inner planet retrogrades like Mercury, Venus, and Mars retrograde cycles.

  • 19th June, 2023:
    Cautious expansions - are in the air, when the sky observes optimistic Jupiter in Taurus connecting with strict Saturn in Pisces - primarily influencing your occupation and public image. Some opportunities for growth are likely to be on offer and you can rely on sound judgement skills to only chose those opportunities that are right for you. These opportunities may be in your career, through investment or business deals, or in your personal life as major material possessions or relationship choices. You will come out of this experience wiser, richer, or happier.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 29th June, 2023.

     
     
  • 1st July, 2023:
    Dreamy Neptune turns Retrograde (backward-moving) in water sign Pisces, afflicting your intimate world and resources. It is time to face some harsh realities concerning your self-knowledge, intimacy, finances, and shared resources - as some illusions, dreams and false realities are stripped off. The further from the truth you have travelled, or the more extreme your methods of escape, the bigger the shock. A new relationship or a critical event can trigger an old memory of pain - from which you sought to escape. You may then feel humiliated, exposed, betrayed, scared, anxious or guilty. You may spend more time worrying about yourself and your problems. Self-pity, social anxiety or depression could lead to withdrawal and loneliness.
     Backward-moving Neptune joins along with Saturn, Pluto - already retrograde, and further slows down your life.
     As with all outer planets, this period causes relatively less concern than the rarer inner planet retrogrades like Mercury, Venus, and Mars retrograde cycles.
     This influence stays with you till 6th December, 2023.

     
     
  • 24th July, 2023:
    Sweet Venus turns Retrograde (backward-moving) in your own sign Leo, afflicting your self-presentation and views. Your love life enters a fated period, a period of introspection and reassessment of who or what really brings you pleasure - especially about yourself, your personality, body image, attitude, and outlook. Giving and receiving love, affection, pleasure, and satisfaction becomes more difficult. Same goes for financial dealings or comforts of life - it is not an ideal time for investing or buying luxury items. You might have second thoughts, or simply lose interest, later. This is a good time to evaluate what your heart and mind desires - to improve how you feel about yourself, and to love yourself more. Old friends or lovers may reappear or you may relive past life experiences in order to sort out karmic issues. Even reminiscing about old partners will help to remove your karmic baggage and lighten the load. Destiny encounters are possible and you may actually come into contact with your soulmate - if so, you should experience a feeling of inevitability or familiarity - but it is better to wait until this cycle ends to make your move. You will likely become interested in someone or something of value that would bring you pleasure. During this period, you may find the reasons for problems in earlier or current relationships.
     This Venus Retrograde cycle, starts with affecting your personal appearance and mannerisms. This cycle will strongly influence the personal image you project to others. Others may misunderstand what you do and say, and misread your body language. Others may not be seeing you in the most favorable of light, and events may be such that you feel the need to rethink the way you present yourself. You may be coming across in a harsher, even militant manner without even realizing it. Try to keep things status quo with regards to your love life. Don't worry if a lover isn't quite "getting" you for the time being. Things will change once Venus turns direct. Also, take this time to review your instinctual responses to new things and the first impression your make on others in terms of how these things help or hinder you.
     When this retrograde cycle ends - Over the past few weeks, you may have developed a bit clearer vision of how you would like to present yourself and how you want to benefit from the way people see you. As you fine-tune your image, you will also be impacting your ability to earn and benefit from the way you are viewed and judged by others (for the better). What you rearrange on the outside is just a reflection of what’s going on inside, however, and the more consistent one is with the other, the easier you will be able get what you want, when you want it.
     Backward-moving Venus joins along with Saturn, Neptune, Pluto - already retrograde, and further slows down your life.
     This retrograde cycle especially effects you more adversely than any other zodiac sign or native. Take precaution!
     This influence stays with you till 4th September, 2023.

     
     
  • 24th August, 2023:
    Tactful Mercury turns Retrograde (backward-moving) in earth sign Virgo, afflicting your finances and self-worth. You face communication and technology breakdowns, nervous anxiety, travel delays, and lost items - both lose or sometimes find - especially surrounding your money, possessions, self-worth, living standards, and comforts. You can also expect to dwell on things, reminisce about the past, or unexpectedly meet up with people from your past. This period can play havoc with your thoughts, communications, travels, and electronics. Take extra care with your words and try not to react too quickly in any arguments or if provoked. Avoid signing contracts or comitting something, because this is the riskiest times for decision-making, negotiations, communication, and transport - including a week before and after.
     This Mercury Retrograde cycle, indicates that extra care should be exercised when it comes to new financial initiatives. There may be the need to revisit old, nagging issues regarding personal finances. Take this time to re-budget instead of making premature purchases. Hold off on major decision-making regarding money. Instead, take the time to re-think your sources of income and how you spend your cash during this period, but put off finalizing anything important for the time being. In fact, some money-making ideas or ventures may be put on hold due to circumstances beyond your control. This is an excellent period for review, however.
     When this retrograde cycle ends - Kinks, twists, and delays in financial matters are on their way out and a return to smoother sailing is in the works. Although delays may have been annoying, the resolutions they have brought will benefit you immediately and in the long run. Picking up loose ends and tightening your operation has lasting benefits, not only on your resources, but also on your opportunities to disseminate your ideas and expand your contacts and horizons. Any headway you may have lost is momentary and will be made up for by a smoother operation, a steadier course, and fewer distractions over the next several weeks. Tie up loose ends and be ready to move on to expanded horizons and a surer sense of your underpinnings.
     Backward-moving Mercury joins along with Venus, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto - already retrograde, and further slows down your life.
     This influence stays with you till 15th September, 2023.

     
     
  • 30th August, 2023:
    Chaotic Uranus turns Retrograde (backward-moving) in earth sign Taurus, afflicting your occupation and public image. You get a break from the rebellious energy that was directing you to bring about drastic changes, or with events enforcing such changes, in areas of your career, reputation, ambitions, and social standing. This is a period to align your inner change in response to external changes in your life. It can also be a time to induce the changes in attitude or behaviours which are necessary to make the desired outward change possible - especially if you may have anticipated a major change in your life, or tried to initiate change, but nothing has happened. Previously, you were attempting to force radical changes in your occupation and public image. Now, is the time to analyze whether your revolution was based on ignorance or the innocence of youth - and make necessary ammendments with insights about the error of your ways.
     Backward-moving Uranus joins along with Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto - already retrograde, and further slows down your life.
     As with all outer planets, this period causes relatively less concern than the rarer inner planet retrogrades like Mercury, Venus, and Mars retrograde cycles.
     This influence stays with you till rest of the year, and beyond.

    Optimistic Jupiter turns Retrograde (backward-moving) in earth sign Taurus, afflicting your occupation and public image. During this influence, you are drawn to reflect on issues related to your career, reputation, ambitions, and social standing. These issues find such importance, that extra time is needed to take stock and make sure everything is in order before you continue with your life. You might adjust your expectations re-align them realistically.

    Tactful Mercury turns Retrograde (backward-moving) in earth sign Capricorn, afflicting your routines and self-care. You face communication and technology breakdowns, nervous anxiety, travel delays, and lost items - both lose or sometimes find - especially surrounding your work, health, services, daily routines, and habits.

     This Mercury Retrograde cycle, indicates that extra care should be exercised when it comes to work, health matters, and daily routines. Be as non-judgmental as you can with co-workers and/or employees. Re-thinking the suitability of your job is possible now, but you should avoid jumping to any premature decisions. Work-related mess-ups can frustrate you, or you might need to redo work that you thought was complete. However, you might find that the refinements you make now will be very valuable later. Double- check your work before submitting it. It's a fine time for researching health and nutrition programs, as well as job skills and opportunities, but perhaps not the best time for beginning all-new programs. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with co-workers and health professionals; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

    This cycle brings opportunities to travel, study, go abroad, expand your horizons, and meet people of diverse and interesting backgrounds. Your mind is more expansive and tolerant, and you are under less stress than usual - and you are less inclined to sweat the small stuffs.
     
    The transit finds you more intellectually curious now, and academic pursuits can both benefit you and run exceptionally smoothly. Business dealings, particularly long-distance ones and those involving publicity and promotion, are likely to be profitable now. Authors might get published now, receive good reviews, or they could significantly expand their audience. Travel is entirely possible now, whether it is business or personal. Educational and travel opportunities expand your horizons. Teaching and learning are favored. Writing and studying flow more naturally. This is also an excellent period for positive dealings with in-law!
     
    A more faithful attitude towards life, in general, is likely now - you tend to feel that everything will work out in the end. Legal matters might also work in your favor, or long-standing legal problems might now be ironed out. Some of you will be seeking legal advice and find it especially helpful now.
     
    New learning experiences, as well as "life" experiences (travel, adventures, contacts with others of a vastly different culture than yours, and so forth), are likely to emerge. You might choose to learn a new language or take on other studies. This is an exceptionally strong placement for Jupiter. You're considerably more adventurous and outgoing now.
     
    These positive circumstances won't necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once - and you need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life.
     
    On the downside, watch for a tendency towards a "holier than thou" attitude. Also, you could be feeling some disillusionment with education, or personal interests, or challenges keeping up with daily life due to interruptions. Watch for misrepresentation by being especially clear in your communications.
     
    Overall, a feel-good period that offers opportunities to rise above petty concerns and to achieve a more balanced approach to your life. This is a time when you genuinely enjoy life, appreciating the good things, and rarely harping on the more inconvenient or annoying elements of life!
     
    The most favourable periods for all of the above matters are when Jupiter is in direct motion (forward-moving) during this cycle. And, the most potent period of this influence is the first month of this approximately 13-month cycle.

    These positive circumstances won't necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once - and you need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life.
     
    On the downside, there may be difficulties with a family member who may be at odds with the energy and time you are pouring into your career or public life. Confusion or disorder in your home life, or possibly your own insecurities, can negatively impact your career or more worldly pursuits. Personal responsibilities and possibly self-restrictions can be challenging, affecting your growth in the outside world or career. Daily tasks can feel overwhelming at times. A business or pursuit may need adjustments and some restructuring in order to better meet the demands of reality.
     
    Overall, a feel-good period that offers powerful period for innovation and progress - when believing in yourself, your competency, and your ability to take the lead opens up opportunities to you!
     
    The most favourable periods for all of the above matters are when Jupiter is in direct motion (forward-moving) during this cycle. And, the most potent period of this influence is the first month of this approximately 13-month cycle.
  • However, from 5th September, 2023 to 31st December, 2023, when Jupiter is retrograde (backward-moving), your optimism may falter, and you may lack the confidence to surge ahead - especially in matters of reputation, occupation, and calling.

 
Contraction, Challenges, Lessons for 2023
Saturn represents our conscience, moral conviction, and principles. It is the basis of our boundaries, our responsibilities, and our commitments. Saturn's transit restricts the area of your life that it touches (influences), drawing your limitations along with it. It stays in each sign for around 2 and half years, as it covers the entire zodiac in 29,5 years.
  • Saturn, the planet of rules and strictures, continues to review the sector of your solar chart that rules partnerships, relationships, and love - until 7th March, 2023. During this influence, you will be compelled to streamline your close personal relationships, marriage or partnership, commitments, agreements, and rivalry - facing tests and challenges that strengthen the foundation in these areas. You will feel lonesome, and are likely to develop complications or strains in your bonds within committed relationships.

    Till 7th March, 2023, Saturn transits your House VII: Partnerships, relationships, and love.
     
    This cycle challenges your partnerships, marriage, and one-to-one relationships. These are areas of your life that undergoes contraction, restriction, and necessary "slimming down" in order to test for stable foundations. Results in these areas of your life will not be as forthcoming, or with ease, as they have been in the past.
     
    Your close personal relationships, such as marriages and other committed partnerships, long-term associations, open enemies, negotiations, agreements, and contracts are in strong focus during this transit. Depending on your age, you are urged to define, understand, and crystallize your significant relationships with others. This is a grounding energy that gets you back in touch with reality - and your significant one-to-one relationships need to be considered and understood.
     
    If you have a partner, this is a time when any issues surrounding compromise, flexibility, and the ability to give your heart to your partner will surface. Frustrations may take the form of feeling criticized and "examined" in this area of life. Single people are likely to feel the initial pressures,too. A feeling of loneliness is possible in either situation (whether you have/had a significant partnership or not), but instead of an issue of re-committing, the single person will seriously think about commitment in general. If involved in a casual love relationship, a pressure emerges concerning the need for evaluating your commitments. Often this transit corresponds with an urge (or pressure) to make a commitment or a recommitment. For those of you who are in committed partnerships, there can be some strains on your bond.
     
    This is a time when you may not see the especially flattering side of a partner, or of yourself in response. A partner might feel like a "heavy" in your life, and any feelings of restriction that you feel or have felt in this area of life may seem magnified in your mind now. A partner might also seem cautious, distant, critical, or defensive. You need to open your mind to the possibility that a significant other is providing you with important life lessons - about traditions, simplifying your life, and responsibilities. While this might seem difficult now, you might later look back on this time of your life as a learning experience, and it is best not to automatically discard what someone has to say. Take your time on this one - relationships are seen now as serious matters!
     
    If, however, a partner is challenging you to the point of breaking, then steps need to be taken to improve the situation. A relationship can encounter some tests or complications, but if it is strong, it will weather the storm and you could decide to take it to another level. If not, remember that relationships "lost" during a Saturn transit to your partnership sector on some level have run their course and need to end. Some of you could be making a commitment to someone, and others may decide that a traditional partnership is not for you. This is not a period of status quo in your relationships - something is decided now. You may be seeing the sobering side of a relationship, significant person, or yourself through a relationship! If it's very uncomfortable, now is the time to make changes.
     
    Events will occur that tests your foundations in these areas your life that require a "back to basics" approach in order to build (or rebuild) a strong foundation. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the cosmos is checking if the foundations are strong. During this period, anything built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests, and fall apart - gone from your life for good. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen.
     
    Healthy partnerships can be the outcome of this transit, whether they are new ones or strengthened existing partnerships. Saturn always brings with it a fair measure of reality and objectivity, so that whatever relationships you may have now or want to have will be defined and re-defined. The end result, as this cycle reaches its climax, you will have learned much about commitment and compromise.
     
    Partners are no longer mirrors of the ego. Responsibilities to partners, the need to compromise, and the realities of the needs of others, become clear. You see others as individuals and feel compelled to improve the manner in which you relate to and with others. Depending on your age and life circumstances, "significant partnerships" can mean partnerships with loved ones, business partnerships, one-on-one counseling, and deep friendships. By the end of this transit this year, quantity in the relationship department will have been replaced with quality, and this process involves time, soul-searching, frustration, and eventual fulfillment.
     
    As things start falling apart in the affected areas of your life, it is felt most strongly in the first year of this cycle that lasts approximately 2.5 years.
  • From 8th March, 2023 onwards, Saturn inspects the sector of your solar chart that rules joint finances, intimacy, and transformation - for the rest of the year. During this influence, you will be compelled to streamline your intimacy, sexuality, sharing and shared assets, joint finance or property, and support system - facing tests and challenges that strengthen the foundation in these areas. You will likely face delays or difficulties in general when it comes to getting what you want or need from others.

    8th March, 2023 onwards, Saturn transits your House VIII: Joint finances, intimacy, and transformation.
     
    This cycle challenges your support system, intimacy, sharing, and finances. These are areas of your life that undergoes contraction, restriction, and necessary "slimming down" in order to test for stable foundations. Results in these areas of your life will not be as forthcoming, or with ease, as they have been in the past.
     
    Your deepest desires and attachments are in strong focus during this transit. Depending on your age, you are likely to be more sensitive to what appear to be outer world pressures that force you to examine some of your sexual relationships, your finances (especially with regards to debts and shared finances/support), and your need for control. This is a grounding energy that gets you back in touch with reality - and you may face dissatisfaction and frustrations getting what you want, especially concerning relationships with others and your resources.
     
    Tests can come to your financial and intimate worlds - that urges you to organize your finances. On a psychological level, you face some of your fears that are compulsive — those concerns that lead you to believe you need certain things to survive. Taxes might be an issue during this period. Facing the realities of debt may be another. Some of you may be supporting a partner, or a partner could be earning a little less.
     
    You may be dealing with fears of surrendering yourself, emotionally or financially, to others. Support from others may not be as forthcoming as it has been in the past. For example, a partner's income may decrease, or another form of financial support may no longer be available during this period. This requires you to assume more independence regarding making a living. For some, a line of study is coming to an end, and there is a need to take the next step.
     
    However, it's a strong time for handling financial matters, especially debts and taxes, logically and realistically. You'll find that you waste considerably less energy by facing up to realities rather than living your life procrastinating and feeling vaguely guilty all of the time. It's an excellent time for sorting through your finances and dealing with the power dynamics in a partnership more equitably.
     
    Events will occur that tests your foundations in these areas your life that require a "back to basics" approach in order to build (or rebuild) a strong foundation. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the cosmos is checking if the foundations are strong. During this period, anything built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests, and fall apart - gone from your life for good. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen.
     
    Emotionally, there can be a feeling that others are not quite as supportive. There can be delays or difficulties in general when it comes to getting what you want or need from others. Intimacy may seem to dry up a tad before it gets better. You may face some difficulties satisfying your libido and/or encounter problems with intimacy. These pressures are "designed" to make you more aware of your desire nature, and what exactly it is you truly want.
     
    You may discover that previous methods of controlling your environment, and the people in your life are just not as effective anymore. You may not even be aware exactly how you have been employing power and control before. The end result, as this cycle reaches its climax, getting what you want from others can be challenging, as you ultimately are learning to rely on yourself - you are likely to feel considerably healthier on an emotional level. You will have eliminated some deep-seated habits and attachments that have been keeping you back from feeling emotionally free. You emerge healthier and stronger. When we give in to compulsive behaviors, we give up self-control, and guilt undermines our lives. We are not ourselves. By attempting to control others, we give away our own power over ourselves. Ideally, you will have nixed some of your addictions, and mastered your superstitions. You will feel more powerful because you have given up attempting to control things you cannot or should not control, and you will have gained a feeling of self-mastery instead.
     
    As things start falling apart in the affected areas of your life, it is felt most strongly in the first year of this cycle that lasts approximately 2.5 years.
  • However, from 18th June, 2023 to 4th November, 2023, when Saturn is retrograde (backward-moving), you may review or seek to rectify something that you had previously done, thought, or decided - especially in matters of joint finances, and intimacy.
