“Oh you may not be an angel and you may not go to church, but the good that you do will come on back to you; and it don’t cost very much.”
During Saturn in Libra I tried to solidify my love relationship. We got engaged. And then it ended. Did I fail at Saturn in Libra? No, I may be single, and that in itself is not as I would wish, but I did the right thing when I consider it in the long view. The transit of Saturn through Libra showed me that relationship (Venus) would not stand the test of time (Saturn). But that doesn’t mean I am not benefitting. I am, in fact.
This transit has helped me to restrict myself in relationship, to “grow up” many of my ingrained ways of relating that were choking off avenues to growth as a partner. Many were able to do this and improve their existing love relationship, but I was not. However, one on one relationships are not just romance. One on one, serious friendships also fall into this category. While my partnership died on the vine, many of my friendships have matured and reached a new level of closeness.
Because I have refined the way I interact one on one, no matter who I relate to in the future the results are likely to be far healthier and successful. I could look at the ending of my engagement and my single state as a failure, but I do not. This would be a failure if I refused to see reality (Saturn) and mature.
Who I am has not fundamentally changed but my perception of reality and the way things work most definitely has. I am growing. I have realized that to create and enforce boundaries is not necessarily as harsh as it might seem. It is a kindness to embrace object reality and operate within its bounds. Kindness is only kind (Venus) if it reflects reality (Saturn) and creates a long-term (Saturn) benefit (Venus).
I may not have the committed relationship I hoped for through this transit, but I now have the realistic hope of sustaining something real when I am given the opportunity in the future. So wherever you are in your Libran/7th house/relationship status right now, partnered or single, you can take a look at the skills you have acquired, the maturity you have cultivated, and maybe you too have gained.
Some people will come out of this with the huge bounty of a healthy new crop in their field. But perhaps you are like me and started with an extra-weedy, rocky terrain. In that case it’s a huge accomplishment if we are starting Saturn’s transit of Scorpio with just an even, tilled planting surface. I say if you are in any way ahead of the game and ready to move forward, you can join me and call it a win. There are plenty of late-season crops that are planted beyond the regular growing seasons of spring and summer. And let’s face it, it’s always harvest time somewhere in the world.
It’s nearing the end of Saturn in Libra. Where are you in your one on one relationship maturation cycle?
