I know a woman who was married to a schizophrenic, abusive alcoholic for 10 years. She wanted kids but could not have them with this guy because she became his caretaker. She made sure he took his meds, reminded him to bathe, fed him, etc. She finally divorced him and spent another 3 years waiting for her married lover to leave his wife (which he never did). I know many women who are waiting patiently for their boyfriends to propose, 5 or 10 years into the relationship. Not one sniff of a proposal is in the air but still, they wait.
People say that commitment is dead in today's age of 6 month marriages but they're wrong. It's alive and well. Steadfast is steadfast, no matter who you stick by. In astrology, what this would look like is Saturn (commitment) in Libra (relationships).
But all of this devotion is about to be shaken and stirred as things heat up in Aries, Libra's opposite sign. Libra is about relationships with others, Aries is about your relationship with yourself. Right now, Jupiter (freedom) and Uranus (individuality) are stirring the pot as they transit through Aries. This will offer a direct kick to the current transit of Saturn in Libra.
This is not a bad thing, especially when it comes to blowing the lid off any situations that have an expired shelf life. The wake up call will not be pleasant in some instances but it's bound to be exciting. You may already be feeling this if you have any planets in Libra or Aries. All situations involving commitment will be tested and the ones that are meant to continue will carry one, no question.
Since this involves Libra (fairness), Saturn (rules) and Jupiter (morality), you'll already know the best outcome for everyone involved. You may not like it, but you'll know what's right.
