Saturn leaving the 12th house to cross the ascendant to transit the 1st house is always a big deal! It only happens every 28.5 years. Saturn transiting over your ascendant marks the end of one period and the distinct beginning of the next.
“You’re being unnecessarily hard on yourself. You’re not the first person to make a string of bad decisions. You’re finding out is that you’re human. That’s positive!”
I wrote that for a client who’s dealing with the aftermath of Saturn transiting her 12th house. It’s common people lose their way during this transit! I had this experience myself.
It’s also common that a person become concerned about their public image when Saturn transits their 1st house. They feel pressure to pull themselves together somehow. They feel people are judging them.
“…As painful as this is, it’s introducing you to reality. People do think these things about others, at least some of them do.
The realization may be terrifically humbling. But it also puts your feet on the ground, so you can take action (1st house) once you’ve defined what it is you want..”
I suffered tremendously when Saturn crossed my ascendant. The transit can be brutal. You can be floating along in some kind of denial and then, WHAM! You wake up in reality, realizing you’re going to have pull yourself together.
Do you have Saturn crossing your ascendant? How are you faring?
