You are a progressive thinker. You are often referred to as atrial-blazer or trendsetter. You have unique approaches to problems, and when these skills are used you will find fulfillment.

Saturn and Aries in Love
In Love, Saturn and Aries combine the Ram’s courageousness and Saturn’s protective set of Rules and Limitations of Reality. Take this period to reflect and learn from your past experiences in love. You will find fulfillment in yourself when you are able to break through old patterns and find love in new places.
Your best prospects for Love are with a partner who will observe your need to demonstrate your fighting Aries spirit, while also needing to adhere to Rules set for you by Saturn. If you have trouble with self-discipline, look for a partner who will build up your confidence and hold you accountable for your decisions—whether you are trying to kick fast food, cigarettes, or worse.
Find peace within yourself, and fulfillment will come to you, as you follow Saturn’s Rule. Put structure in your life, and once you are comfortable, then add another person to the equation—only when you are emotionally ready. You would benefit from pairing up with a Virgo, who will be a great workout buddy/motivator/detective when you try to sneak bad habits back in.
Your worst prospects in Love are with a partner who is more self-involved. A Leo may be very self-indulged or vain, and not very helpful to your journey. An Aquarius may be aloof or detached—so much so that you never feel intimate enough. Lastly, please watch out if you fall in love with a Pisces, because they may be lovely, but they will not be there for you most of the time.
