If you were born with Saturn in Libra, stability in relationships is serious business. You may hold off on marriage, but when you commit, it is enduring. Marriage may take a lot of work to be successful. You may tend to have a bit of an inferiority complex when it comes to relationships and are afraid of rejection and may try to shut yourself away or run if the going gets tough. You are drawn to mentor types, and may often be with someone older and wiser. Your greatest lessons come from pairing up and being part of a duo has an anchoring effect. You thrive in partnerships, whether it is to start a business or a lifelong friendship.

Your Ideal Professions

You commit to artful projects, making it possible to live your dreams by seeing them to completion.

If you are receptive, reliable, tactful and organized in your profession, you can achieve great status and wealth.

Stumbling Blocks

You suffer when you see what is out of balance. With Libra in Saturn, chaos, crassness, and ugliness can cause you a lot of anxiety and fear. And in your persistent quest to right wrongs and bring your life into equilibrium, you may be frustrated with those that do not see things the same way. It may be hard to accept that you are only able to control yourself. The good news is that you can release that pressure and meanwhile cultivate personal serenity and balance within.
