I did an informal study, to use the term extremely loosely, recently. The study was to determine whether people go through a tough time when Saturn is transiting their Sun sign.
Respondents were sent an online message – see Table 1 below. There were 257 respondents which is a nice number although I’m not entirely certain that they are representative of the population as the most of the respondents have an interest in spirituality by their participation in groups with a spiritual focus.
Respondents are asked whether the time period, where Saturn was/is transiting through their Sun sign, was/is one of the toughest periods in their life, generally speaking.
60% agreed with the statement; 32% disagreed with the statement while 8% somewhat agreed with the statement.
These Sun signs are more likely than other signs to agree with the statement: Sagittarius, Scorpio, Cancer and Gemini.
These Sun signs are less likely than other signs to agree with the statement: Aquarius, Taurus and Pisces.
Zodiac signs that are not mentioned above could go either way.
For more information, look at table 2 below.
Without performing statistical analysis, it seems that it is more likely than not (a 68% chance) that a person may go through a “tough” time in their life when Saturn is transiting through their Sun sign.

TOUGH TIMES IN LIFE
Dear all, I’m doing an informal research on tough times in a person’s life based on their zodiac sign. Could you have a look at your sign and rate by leaving a comment on whether the time period indicated for your sign is one of the toughest periods in your life generally speaking (yes, no, somewhat and state your sign)? Thanks!!
