DESTINY

What trials and triumphs will Saturn bring to you, Leo? ( Dec. 17, 2020 – Mar. 7, 2023)

Saturn officially moved into water-bearer sign Aquarius on December 17, 2020. It will stay in Aquarius for the next two and a half years, specifically until March 7, 2023, encouraging people to build their own “foundation” (the foundation of their destiny that will last for about 30 years!).

By its very nature, Saturn is a planet that encourages growth, and by imposing trials and challenges onto people, it paves the way for said growth. Growth is the process of building a stronger foundation from the past, and it is only when we really have a previous foundation that we have achieved through hardship that we can set broader dreams and higher goals. In this sense, Saturn is also the planet that connects the past and the future.

In other words, what you struggled with in the past is connected in a straight line to the present and to the challenges of the future. This may include experiences that made you wonder, “Why do I have to suffer so much?”

Saturn teaches us how all of these experiences connect, and how we can use them to our advantage.

This is why we’ll be exploring the fate Saturn has given you in the following two chapters. What you have accomplished during the period of ② (which may be an accomplishment you are not even aware of) is the foundation for the present and future challenges of ①.

This means our story will be unpacked as follows:

(1) Challenges you will receive from Saturn for the period December 2020 to March 2023.

(2) What you have already accomplished under Saturn’s trials for the period of about three years from the end of 2017 to December 2020.

It is especially important to read (1) and (2) as a single story in your mind. Use (2) as a foundation and interpret it to read the challenges in (1). And if you are still enduring difficulties right now, it is very important to think of that suffering as still holding a connection to the future, even if you cannot yet see it.

(1) Challenges you will receive from Saturn for the period December 2020 to March 2023.

For about two and a half years, from the end of 2020 to March 2023, Leos will be “confronted” with regards to love and work. What does this entail?

Well, it doesn’t just have to look one way, and every Leo may experience this a little differently. For instance, this can be at work, in love, with a spouse, or with children. In this “confrontation,” your role may be questioned in the connection. You will be tested and evaluated to see if you are the right person for them to have a relationship with, to marry, to trust with their work, or if you are good enough to produce results. In other words, there is a possibility of pressure being put on you. And the pressure of this “one-on-one” relationship is meant to lead to one big encounter.

There is a word for this: “soulmate.” It is often used in the sense of a destined lover, but it does not only apply to romantic relationships. It can also mean an important business partner. It can also be a friendship that you spend a large part of your life with. And most importantly, a “soulmate” is not necessarily someone you are comfortable with. They can be someone who helps you grow in more ways than just being comfortable or secure. For example, it could be a business rival. It could be an acquaintance who is always critical of you. Or it could be a relative who is always overly picky about you.

Of course, a mutually compatible relationship is ideal, and such a soulmate is more common than not. However, it is a fact that there is no such thing as a 100% perfect match in the world. Human beings are always flawed in some way, and a soulmate is someone who can make up for that and at the same time challenge you in the right direction by giving you the right conflict to work through.
