I have a large stellium in Aquarius. I always experience some serious life issues when an outer planet like Saturn hits my chart. I am just starting to breathe again after this last Saturn transit in Scorpio.
I have six planets in Aquarius with all of them in the 3rd house. It feels like I get bulldozed each time by an outer planet either squaring, conjuncting or opposing my stellium. How does a person with a stellium prepare for these transits ?
Hi, R. That’s quite a chart!
A transit to a large stellium is often grueling. But when I see a chart like yours, the word that comes to mind is “elegance”.
2. the quality of being pleasingly ingenious and simple; neatness.
“the simplicity and elegance of the solution”
You’re dealt certain cards in life and that’s it. That’s what you have to work with. If you’re dealt a chart like yours, straight away, you know that you’re special. How could you not be? When planets line up like they did when you were born, it’s an anomaly that is reported on the news around the world.
That’s a fact. It’s static. But how you deal with your exotic chart is up to you.
Currently, you frame this in a negative way. Bull-dozed by Saturn? How did that happen? Aquarius is Saturn ruled! You have Saturn in it’s own sign!
It sounds like you pitted yourself against Saturn and suffered because of it. If you’d welcomed this transit, you would have had a much easier time. Saturn would mature your massive Aquarian vibe. What’s wrong with that? Why not see it as an update to your hardware? An upgrade?
The answer for you and for anyone who has a large stellium in their chart is to embrace your chart. It’s not an accident! You were born to specialize in something and every transit that comes along is designed to hone your natural abilities.
Here’s an analogy…
My husband joined the Air Force when he was 17 years old. He went through basic training with everyone else. After basic training, he was selected to undergo an additional year of training so that he could learn to program a missile. He was confined to his base the entire time.
I don’t think he enjoyed this, at 18 years old. But too bad! Like you, he’s special.
Next time you see a (daunting) transit coming, tell yourself the truth! You’re an anomaly, going in for special training, because this is exactly what an anomaly needs!
Do you have a large stellium in your chart? How to you cope with years-long transits?
