I suppose I am a bit hung up on the Saturn square.
I definitely think there's a matrix of activity and I certainly don't wish to underplay any of the other aspects (especially the Saturn conjunction to my natal Pluto). Since I have a locomotive pattern in my chart with so many planets in the middle degrees/decanates, it's sometimes tricky to really synthesize what energies are predominant at a given time. Perhaps I'm just too close and too subjective to really get the point. I will say that my with my natal Saturn in the 2nd house and natal Venus in the 12th, this current situation is bringing up issues of self-worth, sacrifice, and emotional inequities in my relationships.
