People used to boast about being “high maintenance”. Saturn went into Libra, about five years ago. I figured this transit would end that for sure and it did.
Saturn is concerned with boundaries and taking responsibility. It’s transit through Libra pressured all of us to learn to be fair in our dealings with others. We should have also have learned to try not to burden others.
Here are a couple of those posts:
I have taxed people heavily, in the past. With a packed 8th house, I still have the the potential to overwhelm a friend or a partner. I have to watch myself.
I get so sick of “watching myself” at times, I withdraw. If I have to constantly monitor my energy level…well, I’d rather mow or pull weeds or lie quietly and contemplate things.
Today, I was talking to a friend who mentioned people who are high maintenance, but they don’t know it. I wonder if they do know it. This would be my guess, if you set aside mental illness. People do know they are taxing you and testing you.
It reminds me of a million years ago when I snorted cocaine. I knew I was out of control but pretended I didn’t.
Are you high maintenance? What do you know about this phenomena?
