It is time to be quiet now and listen better. You get to see how your perspective handles a perspective of being quiet and going inward. Any trouble here? Depends on how beyond the pale you are naturally. If you are normal, this is normal day. This day knows to stay focused. As the day grows later into the Fourteen, things get easier because you get used to being more serious. Such is the nature of the so-called “friendly” symbol (meaning it is simpatico in its expression), Saturn, which has a reputation of being the one that holds us back, restricts, restrains, disciplines, and associated with the aging of the physical body. Not so friendly in a way, as Saturn doesn’t show the true value of its qualities of responsibility and discipline until it passes the test of time. What you do now, the heart you put into it now, is going to set you up for the future. Don’t be lazy 7:00 lion at this stage. Be grounded and be real. The perspective is about accepting any restrictive challenges as something really good for you. Nose to the grindstone, and such. You better follow the rules here, even if you don’t see why you need to do so. Watch what you say. Focus..

Fourteen is a “mid-feminine” number which means its perspective is a bit picky and critical due to being more practical (less full of that fire of 7:00) – things are getting rote, boring, earthy 8:00. Being less than thrilled with what we see around ourselves. Fourteen correlates with an energy that gives a physical focus on delivering the self in practical service via work, typically with issues around organization and structure. Twelve was fun; Fourteen is some work. Which suits you? We have to admit that 14 is more realistic. It still contains a healthy dose of focus on the 7:00 that it came from but now it needs to take care (inward-look) at 7:00 for its health and for what it is going to do.
