Taking Your Self Seriously

With Saturn in Aries (or the First House, you can be intensely provocative one moment and fearful of “showing yourself” the next. This gives you great presence, but also insecurities to overcome that have to do with simply being who you are!

Saturn asks you to stand confident in your own skin, even though you may be fearful. This takes time (sometimes a lifetime) and lessons of self-acceptance.

With effort, you face the fears of self-exposure and share who you are with others.

Aries is about the initial spark that brings the new into being. With Saturn in Aries, you know how powerful that force is, and strive to direct it with discipline. You can be quite a dynamic person, as you build the character to hold such intensity, at your front door.

Your weak point is defensiveness. You can sabotage yourself by butting heads with bosses or “The Man.” You prefer to have the freedom to blaze a trail without interference. You can be a charismatic speaker and leader.

Your path is learning to master the creative moment, and show self-control when harnessing that rocketing force. You take charge of your destiny, and this helps you win your own respect.
