For the entire period, Saturn transits your House X: Reputation, occupation, and calling.
This cycle challenges your career, reputation, and responsibilities. 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 standing in society, and ambitions are in strong focus during this transit. Depending on your age, your career would require important decisions and choices.This is a grounding energy that gets you back in touch with reality - and you will be building a secure foundation in your professional or most public life.
You have found yourself in the spotlight, and whatever you have been building is now under review or subject to inspection. This can be a time for receiving recognition and career "rewards". In early adulthood, it can be a time when you truly begin to face your duties as a career person or take on more significant responsibilities. You do not focus on where you are going as much as you focus on where you stand.
This cycle is an eye-opening one - a time when you are working hard, taking on your fair share of duties and responsibilities, and either reaping some of the rewards of your hard work or facing the consequences of poor choices. You become aware of what you have - and haven't - accomplished to date. You are treated to a realistic look at what you've built and achieved. You no longer view your place in the world, your career, and your reputation with rose-colored glasses. It is what it is!
At times you may feel exposed, publicly scrutinized, or under fire in your career during this transit. If this discomfort is great, it may be that you have been holding onto a false image of yourself.
Important projects may come to fruition, and this can be a time for reaping their rewards, but there can be some disappointment now as well if you haven't achieved what you wanted to accomplish. You are indeed more accountable for your choices. Projects that you've been working on behind the scenes or that you've left unfinished might come to fruition during this period, or you could be using them to further your career. You may need to employ some caution with regards to elements from your past, as these might come before the public eye in some way 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.
You may acquire a higher position now, and you are likely to feel the weight of increased responsibilities that come with it. There can be issues to handle with a parent (more likely the father) or parent figure, or a boss/authority figure in your life.
The end result, as this cycle reaches its climax, there can be more recognition of the efforts you put forth, as well as increased motivation for tackling tasks that you previously felt were monotonous or uninteresting. This can be a fantastic career peak for some.
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.
