  1. Saturn says, “when will you become tired of being a fixer?” I’m wore out, and no longer have the energy for other people’s crapola!

    It takes a while but women in particular are taught by family, as well as society to take care of others before self. Sometimes, women don’t realize how much time they have spent taking care of others, until we are much older, and too tired to care!

    I liked Gloria Swanson’s line as Norman Desmond in Sunset Boulevard — “what about me, me, me!”

  2. Saturn in Sag (6th). I am a legal secretary, and have worked very hard with nothing to show for it, except, many Saturn lessons about taking on responsibilities in the workplace that aren’t mine. However, Saturn has taught me to say, “NO,” stop playing the “victim,” and to allow others to take care of themselves.

    It’s nice to not “rescue” people! That goes for all areas of life.
