I’ve been having an email conversation with a formidable young woman this weekend. It started out as a consultation but has culminated for me as an uplifting learning experience. She is kind, intelligent, strong, creative and thoughtful with a fascinating mind. She also has Saturn prominent and is very responsible. When you’re young and dealing with Saturn it is often a struggle to come to terms with what is your responsibility and what must be left for others to deal with, not just for your own best outcome but for theirs as well. You have to learn to hold strong to your own values, as we are doing with Saturn in Libra, set boundaries (Saturn) and balance them with your good, the other’s good and the greater good.
It helps to understand that because someone expects something of you that does not mean it’s in anyone’s best interest to comply. Sometimes keeping someone else off the floor just delays their inevitable fall. If they have unrealistic expectations no one is going to be able to fix their problem until they decide to fix it themselves. At that point you can “responsibly pull back your energy and gift them with the opportunity to confront the natural consequences of their unrealistic expectations.” I put that in quotes because that is my nice way of paraphrasing Janis Ian from the movie Mean Girls: “Chew on that, suckas! Loolooloolooloo!”
This young woman will “go far.”
How are you doing with setting boundaries in relationships (of all kinds) with Saturn in Libra?
