You aim high, dream big dreams, and have a tremendous sense of what is possible for you to achieve.

Mars sextile Saturn

Conscientious, responsible, and serious about your work, you accomplish a great deal through your dedication. You are the person in the office or company who follows through, quietly sustains the effort, and keeps on going in spite of tedium, setbacks, or dry spells. This is often the key to your success. However, you are humble about your accomplishments and contributions, and may thus not receive the recognition or compensation you deserve.

However, your optimism and grand vision can get you in trouble too; you sometimes promise more than you can deliver, gloss over important details that come back to haunt you later, and overestimate the potential of an idea or product.

You contribute to your own success by having large goals, and by including, helping, and enlisting the aid of friends and others in reaching those goals.
