“Hey Elsa, All else being equal, how would you feel about marrying someone with Saturn in the Seventh?”
Boy, that’s a good question. For people new to astrology, traditional interpretation of Saturn in the 7th house (or any other Venus Saturn exchange) is burden in relationship. There are other manifestations of course. People marry older partners, controlling partners, the marriage is a business deal and I could go on and on. Fact is whatever the case, some restriction is given.
Now before you go swearing off anyone with a Venus Saturn exchange in their chart (or stabbing yourself if it’s you with Saturn in the 7th) just consider the alternative. How would you like a partner with no restrictions, hmm? How about he or she runs amok all over the land? Sound any better? I didn’t think so.
I faced this head on when I decided to hook up with the soldier. There was tremendous impediment that would have to be overcome if we were to be together. There would be long delay of gratification but just in general, he has a very hard life in many ways, for may reasons.
I have a very hard life as well but his is even worse and I talked openly about this with friends. I understood that it I opted to hook up with him I would inherit his problems and hardships. I would assume all his burdens and there were a long list of them. Further, one look at his chart and it’s pretty clear it will always be this way so what to do?
What I did was think about it long and hard and I felt about it very deeply until I came to a decision and made a very serious commitment… to myself and to him. So to answer the question, personally I would (and have already) married someone with a Venus Saturn signature in their chart though I’d caution anyone to follow suit unless they had certain qualities.
If you do not have a level of maturity for example, you’re going to be in big trouble with your Saturnian partner. If you want to live in la la land, here again the person with Saturn associated with Venus is going to mess you up big time.
On the other hand if you want real (Saturn) love (Venus), the conscious Venus Saturn person has it to give. Thing is, I don’t think many want real love. They want a movie or an adventure or a fling. Maybe they want some danger or to piss off their mommy by dating or marrying you. Consequently Venus Saturn and their “real love” goes begging.
So that’s me, what about you?
Would you marry someone who brought a burden to the relationship?
