One thing I've noticed (with the recent emphasis on Pisces and Saturn retrograde) is people saying "Enough!" The stellium in Pisces is asking you to let go...but what if you've already let go of everything? Saturn retrograde signals a slow down...but what if you're already at a standstill?
Sometimes a heavy transit can over emphasize what you've already got going on. It's right there, in your face, and you've already given all you can give. How to deal? Look to the transiting or progressed planet that offers some energy to balance things out. There's always more than one influence hitting your chart at any given time. Sometimes, all it takes is awareness to activate the less obvious energies.
So if you're swamped by Pisces, and feel that you have nothing left to release, look to transiting or progressed Jupiter to see what's increasing in your life. If the idea of a Saturn Rx delay fills you with dread (because you're already stuck in concrete) look at transiting/progressed Uranus and Pluto to see what areas of your chart are being shaken and stirred. Then turn your attention to those areas. This is how you make astrology work for you.
