Your planetary ruler, Saturn, is receiving some fairly difficult vibrations from Pluto. It's time to let some negative habits go, but your earthy nature craves security by keeping things the same. Even if your life is filled with misery, it's may be what you know and is therefore safer territory. If you can visualize better things for yourself and learn to live beyond your daily routine, these planetary influences could change your life for the better. It's ultimately your choice.
