Negative Impacts and Characteristics

Sometimes, you are likely to present yourself as a distant human who is work-oriented and has lost themselves in the process. People might find you as an unsocial being. Your lack of expressiveness can tag you as a heartless being, which is not the truth. You have forgotten to enjoy life; it has made your life boring and uneventful. You cannot enjoy the things you do due to some inexplicable remorse that bothers you. You are cautious about your surroundings, yet you can fall prey to your desires. You try to control it all. The motivation behind your strive to be of any use, inspires you to work harder, but sometimes it can make you anxious too. Keeping yourself busy is great but working tirelessly to seek solace is unimaginable. It will only make you more tired.

The presence of Saturn in the lives of married couples can often indicate the struggles and difficulties related to childbirth. You are not very vocal about your pains, and thus people who look at you from a distance believe that you are an unemotional being. But those who know you more than your physical appearance can look beyond the facade you carry.


If you have this cosmic plan in your birth chart, you are likely to overthink everything, and it can bereave you of all things that offer peace. Therefore, you have to overcome your inhibitions and rigidity to experience the pleasures of life.
