Conny asks on Coping with Saturn Transits:
“What do you think Elsa, would a Saturn with trines and sextiles be easier to live with? And would this influence the way we feel the Saturn return too? I’m thinking, does the return activate the aspects of Saturn in the chart, what’s your experience?”
Conny – I have Saturn strongly placed and well aspected . I have an easier time with Saturn transits than most for exactly the reason you imagine. A transiting planet with activate the natal situation for good or ill.
For example, a person with a well placed / aspected Pluto is going to have an easier time with a Pluto transit then someone with hard aspects to Pluto.
This does not mean the person with the easy aspects won’t whine more though. The person with the hard aspects may be more conditioned.
