“He who is not contented with what he has, would not be contented with what he would like to have.”
Saturn transiting natal Venus indicates difficulties with love and money. That would be a yes, and a yes. It also indicates getting serious about love and money. Saturn was just beginning its transit to my Venus (and his sun, moon, Mars) when we had a serious talk and got engaged. It’s a Saturn thing to make a formal commitment.
I’ve also noticed another result, over time. I don’t want a bunch of stuff. I’ve started paring down what I do own and have realized I really don’t want a whole lot of new things junking up my house. Someone asked what I wanted for my birthday: a really big pack of toilet paper, cat food, coffee beans. What I want (Venus) is limited (Saturn). This is a new thing. I don’t even want any new music, which I’ve always loved, because I don’t have room for it on my computer. I’ve been listening to the radio more. Saturn is transiting my moon as well and I don’t FEEL as though I need to own it.
Another associated result is that my interests have become limited. I realized I am just not flitting around the internet like I used to. I have very few places I visit, that I am interested in. This doesn’t mean that I am bored. This is reflective a more thorough enjoyment of the few that I visit. I’m more focused. Because my interest is more focused I’m more thoroughly educating myself in those few areas. Limits are not negative. Saturn limits constrain you in ways that can be disconcerting, however they also can push you to focus on what is important, lasting, and supportive of your development.
Loss of interest in time-wasting activities has resulted in the channeling of my energies into furthering my education in astrology, which in turn supports my career. Saturn restriction might not feel good at first but the results are worth it.
Has a Saturn transit “pushed” you into something that was “good for you?
