Keywords: lonely, depressed, melancholic
When the Moon makes its monthly visit to Saturn, the energy feels heavy and sad to most people. We feel withdrawn and melancholy, and some people even experience temporary depression. Under this bleak, low-energy mood we arent as likely to reach out to others; instead, we focus inwardly. Even if we dont actually feel lonely, we often feel like being alone. Our burdens feel heavier than usual and nothing seems effective in lightening the mood. We may feel under the thumb of certain authority figures in our lives, or of responsibilities that we find burdensome. The mood is too pessimistic to make effective decisions. The best solution is to simply focus on work and serious subjects. The downtime will soon pass.
Keywords: sober, committed, focused
The mood is somber and serious during this short transit, but not depressing. Most folks simply want to be left alone so they can get their work done without any type of interruption or distraction. We feel focused and committed to completing our responsibilities. There is a temporary sense of emotional restriction; that is, we may feel shy or otherwise reticent to express how we feel. This is an excellent time to do work in or on our homes and our personal lives, because we can see what needs to be fixed and we feel dedicated to accomplishing it. Endurance is good but by the end of the day, a restful sleep will sound very appealing.
Keywords: judged, criticized, restricted
Painful or restrictive emotional memories affect our perceptions and moods during this short but intense transit. Folks are very hard on themselves and critical of others at the same time. Feelings of loneliness and inadequacy are pervasive and its very difficult to feel sympathetic to another persons problems or even their point of view. We just dont feel very tolerant or forgiving at the moment. In fact, we can feel quite judgmental, inflexible and severe. Needless to say, this is not the best time for tackling thorny emotional issues. Wait till tomorrow, when this troublesome energy has passed.

Keywords: isolation, pessimism, judgmental
Feelings of isolation and pessimism suddenly loom large under this temporary but draining transit. Old emotions emerge to block our productivity. We feel critical and judgmental toward ourselves and others, too. Theres little that will please us right now. The demands of supervisors and authority figures feel more onerous than usual and we drag our feet in fulfilling them. Family issues seem to take on more significance and everything seems weighty and burdensome. Its all too easy to project our emotions onto our parents or our bosses at this time, making them responsible for our own problems. The best use of this energy is simply to put our noses to the grindstone and keep on working.
