For the entire period, Saturn transits your House V: Romance, pleasure, and creativity.
This cycle challenges your romance, relationships with children, your creativity, and pleasure. 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 romance, children (not necessarily own), creativity, entertainment, recreation, self-expression are in strong focus during this transit. Depending on your age, you are rather somber and serious, but also responsible and practical. This is a grounding energy that gets you back in touch with reality - and you will be bringing more structure to your play time or to a creative talent can also figure strongly now.
Yes, indeed - you will get serious about pleasure! While you may not spend a whole lot of time living it up at parties, bars, or entertainment venues, you are likely to take your hobbies more seriously. In fact, this is an excellent period for monetizing any personal hobby - turning it into a business, even if it's a sideline one.
Romance and work can be tied together in some significant way. Romance can go either way. For some, romance may feel lacking or a romantic relationship could be more practical than fun. Tests or pressures on an existing romance could figure now. Casual relationships and dating may be nonexistent, or lean. For those of you who have recently entered a romance, you are beginning to look at it more seriously and critically. For others, a romantic relationship stabilizes and becomes more serious. Some of you will meet a new romantic interest who is perhaps older or mature, thus "meeting Saturn" through a person.
Those of you who are dating might feel some loneliness, as it can be hard to find what you are looking for at this time. An existing romance may be tested but strong ones strengthen further. A romantic partner could feel like a "heavy" at this time, or you might feel restricted in terms of making acquaintances and enjoying other people's company. For those single and looking, be careful that you don't project a negative attitude without even realizing it, as this can intimidate some.
If you have children, they may need more discipline or structure than they previously did at this stage. Some of you may be welcoming children into your life and discovering all of the responsibilities that come along with it. Others who already have children may find that they are at an age that requires more attention and discipline, or structure. Parents could especially feel the weight of responsibilities towards children during this cycle.
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.
Creatively speaking, you are a little more serious in your approach. You might be turning a hobby into a business now, or you might find that there is less time for creative hobbies, pastimes, amusements, and entertainment. Your work can require more show, drama, creativity, and entertainment value, and may be a hobby-turned-business. Some of you could be working hard on, and putting a lot of effort into, creative hobbies or pastimes.
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.
