This is the commencement of a particularly important period in your life as Saturn transits your Sun sign. You will feel a greater sense of responsibility particularly in work matters will also affect your relationships as well as your social affairs. This transit is a significant one and if you're prepared to accept the lessons that it brings you can achieve much in the next 2 1/2 years.
Moving through your sign up to and including 15 June, Saturn does a backward step, what is called its retrograde motion and in retracing itself makes sure that you understood the lessons you've learned during this cycle. It moves back into the sign of Scorpio which has a lot to do with your past. You'll be reminiscing, and thinking about your life, what you've done and where you are now. Later, on 18 September Saturn once again moves back into your Sun sign with the hope that you've imbibed the lesson.
Personal relationships will also throw up a whole lot of new challenges especially as the solar eclipse in your 4th house on 20 March and the lunar eclipse of 4 April in your 11th house point to family and friends being particularly spotlighted in 2015. There may be additional responsibilities involved in your friendships and family care. The some of you the burden of having to handle more work you'd expected could be your lot. You need to tackle this had on with "can do" attitude. And never forget, that your behaviour will be watched and will either act as a template for model behaviour to younger and less experienced people or turn out to be an example of what not to do when the going gets tough. As always, communication with those you have difficulties with can only help to clarify your understanding and there's and smooth the path for future interaction.
Retrogression also takes place in your finance sector due to the slow-moving and eccentric orbit of Pluto which gains power during its apparent reverse motion. And this impacts upon your income or rather should we say your perception of your income, your perception of values. Pluto's job is to cause you to see deeper into what this part of your life has to say about who you are and whether or not you remain true to your inner calling.
Pluto can be an extremely hard taskmaster causing you to be compulsive, extremely worried or even destructive in the worst-case scenario if financial matters work out the way you'd like. Remain balanced in your approach to earnings and also to what the real value of money is. After all, it is only a measure of your time, expertise and love for what you do.
Some important changes in your profession may also be underway and can come to the fore with the solar eclipse in your 10th house of profession on 13 September. Remember the forward motion transit of Saturn into your Sun sign on 18 September with its full aspect on your career zone is well adds further weight to the importance that these planets will play on significant changes in your career at this time.
