Mars Sextile Saturn
You possess the gifts of endurance and perseverance, the willingness to work hard and seriously to achieve your objectives. Once you decide you want something or make a commitment, you'll do it "even if it takes forever". Self-discipline is natural to you and you instinctively realize that any creative achievement is "10% inspiration, 90% perspiration". You choose practical, realistic goals and pursue them step-by-step in a well-planned, orderly way. You like to concentrate on one thing at a time and do a thorough job. You enjoy working in solitude, and often feel your best work is done when you are alone. You may find that you go from one transformational situation to another, never really settling into any one thing. Yet you have the endurance necessary for the long haul.
It is a good time for planning or working on projects that need discipline and concentration. You will be more patient than usual and able to focus on the details that you may have previously ignored. Your concerns will be very practical so its not a good time for day dreaming or wasting time. You will be thrift with your resources and make the most of what you have. If you are feeling upset or angry you will hold it in and not show it, this is fine just be wary that repressing these emotions may bite you later on
