Saturn Transit! How Do I Know I Am On The Right Path? — 111 Comments

  1. Actually that does help, thanks Elsa. And you put into words something I think I might have had an inkling of in the back of my head, but I couldn’t FIND it. I appreciate that.

  2. Got a call today from an older Capricorn lady friend who has supported my creative efforts for years. We’re having lunch tomorrow to discuss a baby blanket she would like me to knit for a young couple she knows.

    Makes up for some flaky people in other areas . . . more in the nature of letting me know I’m OK. πŸ™‚

  3. Wow! I SO needed to hear this. This is like a “sign” telling me I AM going in the right direction! Thank you Elsa for putting it out there and giving us the nitty gritty of what this transit can feel like. I do feel a lot of fear right now. Incredible! This relates to a heavy duty Saturn influence in one of my friendships that has been kind of going south for a long time, that i depended on for support and distraction from things, but is now suddenly, pulling the rug out from under me. The thing is I was supposed to do that for myself a long time ago and never had the courage. But now I will try to face this with as much courage as I can muster and know that this is what is supposed to be! THANK YOU!!!

  4. Love the hair, and just love your straight to point type of energy. insteading of reading some books about astrology youre just taking that book and smacking me in the head with it going ” LOOK FOR THE SIGNS!!”….

    You are so right. I had exactly this kind of breakdown yesterday, and my Scorpio friend just knows what to say to make me get my ass off the bed and make myself JUST DO whatever i fear i might fail in….. which in my case is a career within the fashion industry.

    But when should I predict these types of “breakdowns”? so i can start adressing them as “pre satun tension” and try to ignore it πŸ™‚

  5. I’ve got transit pluto square my sun and transit Saturn opposing my sun right now- by less than half a degree. It is brutal. Elsa, as always your advice is so comforting and so on point. Ive never been through anything like this, the fear and pressure is really consuming but when I come to your blog it reminds me that this is something I am going through and not something that is internally wrong with me. Thank you.

  6. Elsa, thank you so much! I have made a decision this last Saturday, and I have been worrying if it was the right decision to make, as it will affect many lives in the long run… And listening to you I couldn’t help but smile, because you are right: the signs are all here, I have nothing to worry about. Again, thank you for being so straightforward.

  7. Thanks, that does help. I got some unexpected support yesterday just when I had been thinking I needed to change direction.

  8. As an afterthought, if you can find someone credible in your life during a Saturn transit, maintain a connection if you can – a place to go for a reality check. But don’t lean on the person too hard. They are a guide, not your parent.

    You are really are expected to do things or win things on your own merit and your own steam.

  9. Thank you for this post. It is so amazingly timely with everything that’s going on right now. Lots of pressure and long term plans to put into action. Yet also a variety of options to choose from and a desire to make the best choice. Nice to know I’m not the only one wondering but not lost.

    Unfortunately no major Saturn figures in my life at the moment. No father-authority figures. I’m usually a Saturn figure for others. Plenty of Plutonians though… wonder what to do with those?

    Thanks again, off to find Saturn!

  10. Wow, that hit the spot! Thanks, Elsa. Sometimes you say things and the layers are just peeled away.

    I just came out of Saturn opp Sun, which was crushing at the time. I definitely had an authority figure ‘oppressing’ me and eventually left the position. I’d been in a field that I’ve been trying to break into for a few years that is definitely not from the soul, but a way to be ‘successful’. You just shined the light on my experience with him as my sign that I don’t need to be in that line of work anymore. It’s not something I even liked to do! I’ve wanted to feed my need to serve others in my work for a while, and this is what I needed to hear. πŸ™‚

  11. twentytwo, I feel for you, too. I had Pluto square Sun about 2 or 3 years ago and then just came out of Saturn opp Sun. They were both a bit of a bitch to ride out. Ironically, I got smacked by the same entity in different ways through each transit, although I’m totally free of them now. Things will get better! I can’t tell you how many times I had to tell myself, “This too will pass,” but it does.

  12. i have had not one but two amazing saturn figures appear in my life in the past week (teachers, go figure πŸ˜‰
    and wow.

    and, yes, there are signs.
    and… this is a question i’ve been chewing on for awhile. thanks for the suggestions!

  13. Thankyou so much Elsa for your message and your perfect sense of timing! I can’t begin to tell you how much I needed to hear this. xxxxooo!

  14. twentytwo, I’m right there with you on this, yes brutal pair of transits. Thanks Elsa, I did need to be reminded that its really that simple – look for the signs. Certainly happening here in exactly the way you described.

  15. Saturn transitting my 6th House, squaring T Pluto, which is conjuncting my natal NN/Venus in my 8th House – and I’m off doing oral histories of elders in my town, sharing their wisdom in my newpaper column. Suddenly there are Saturn figures galore in my life and they are telling me “Thank you!” Because my Capricorn North Node is involved elders support my life path! My natal Saturn is conjunct my Descendent in Scorpio. My life is starting to make sense here…

  16. Elsa, I’m neither an old man or a Capricorn but I have been a troller on many astrology sites for a long time! Yours is by far the best I have come across. I love the fact that you speak from your heart and you are very open about your relationship with the soldier…it is helpful! Very very helpful! Keep up the good work!

  17. Not only is this a fantastic video, but you made me suddenly realize a Saturn figure who has just materialized for me in the past month, who sent me an unexpected letter that made me cry (with gratitude!) last week. Thank you!

  18. Great, great video. I’m past my Saturn return now (gratefully), but looking back – it was a very low period of my life, but also an amazing one. There was one person that was very supportive to me during that time, but I have no idea what her chart consisted of, and no way to find out now. Haha, I’m a Cap with a 1st house Saturn, could I do for myself? But I feel like I did do it, I got a new job, got myself back into the support groups that to this day I find tremendously helpful, and put myself on the path that led to where I’m at now, which is kinda peaceful given what’s going on with the planets. πŸ˜‰

  19. For what its worth, I think you are fantastic. I recommend you all the time. You have provided both my husband and I sound counsel in the last year. So there! πŸ™‚

  20. Right there with twentytwo and seadaughter having the same transits..unrest and not knowing where/what is the path (?). That’s the tough part..

    Funny thing Elsa – I sat down 3 times yesterday and contemplated calling you on that EXACT same topic *dead stare straight ahead into space*

  21. Something else I forgot to mention:

    An astrologer told me this a long, long time ago – If you are questioning whether you are on the right Life path, you’s those people that never question who are still looking for theirs..

  22. Wow, thanks! This really helped me…. it would have helped even more, if it came a bit earlier, like October-November last year. I felt terrible then, always questioning myself, whether to take this road or that one. Saturn Return coming up soon, that was the beginning, and it was also conjuncting my natal Jupiter. At that very time an older man came into my life, wise, experienced, always teaching me things, but not telling me everything, just giving hints. A teacher, no less, by profession! Talking to him gave me so much relief, as he always told me to trust myself! If I would have seen this clip then, I would have known I was on the right path πŸ™‚
    But even now, it still helps πŸ™‚

  23. As time has gone on, I posted above and the effect/players keep changing. I haven’t had any Capricorns or older folks support me in anything but I have more friends supporting me in this endevour than ever anyone has in my whole life! The Judges thing makes a lot of sense right now. I had to file something in court last week and I am waiting to see where this is going to go. Lots of pressure still not at the end of the tunnel. Whew! This is good to listen to again.

  24. @Elsa
    Who in their right mind would attack you?!! Just point them out and I’ll take care of them for you!!
    That’s me showing my love and support for you Elsa! πŸ™‚

  25. Very good advice. I have a corporate client that down through all the levels, likes and supports me. I AM an old Capricorn going thru this transit and I support me.

    Still get insecure about the ones that reject me, but to Hell with them and here’s to Me!

  26. thanks elsa

    does saturn clear out all the old and unwanted like pluto does, is that it’s function ?

    or is that in part pluto square saturn ?

  27. Thank you so much, Elsa! Your description was so helpful. How true that once I decided to face problems head on and take responsibility, support arrived. I didn’t quite recognize it at first. On some level, I had understood the embodiment of Saturn to be an “old man” or authority figure, but I really needed to be reminded of that right now and it was so helpful! I have Sun, Uranus, Pluto and Mercury in Virgo. This year, an old man who is, quite literally, a spiritual teacher, showed up in my life offering support on my journey. I was surprised and unsure, but he has given me lots of support to question my path, including his appearance. Your commentary was such an affirmation for me to trust my process! Thank you, thank you!

  28. Wow, Elsa!!! Look at all these posts!! πŸ™‚
    Count me in with the bunch – this was right on the mark for me. I’ve got to go and talk to the police today and ask them for some help.
    And it’s exactly what I need to be doing.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!

  29. Damn, you’re good! I have Trans Saturn in the 8th Trine Natal Saturn in the 12th. I have been dealing with nothing but lawyers and judges the past two years. They DID tell me how good I was handling things, and how I seem like an intelligent go-getter! It may be bankruptcy, divorce and foreclosure, but that’s exactly where I need to be to start a great new life!

  30. After viewing your video, the very first thing that came to my mind was the Fed Ex story. It’s about a young Yale business student who was given an “F” by his professor. The professor reiterated in his class that the student’s idea will not work, and the professor based his judgment from his solid education and number of years experience and should NEVER be questioned. Fast forward, as we all know the young humble student’s idea has now become a well known name.

    What I am trying to point out here has nothing to do with the impaired judgment of the professor but what occurred to me maybe the student was there to teach the professor the meaning of humility? I have noticed that with this kind of level of a profession some not all has God complex?

    Didn’t IBM biggest regret was to let go of Bill Gates and wasn’t he proud to admit his mistakes?

    With that being said, Saturn square Sun transit, does it apply to the student or the professor?

  31. :). This is a *great* insight. Thing is I was involved with a kind of “fake” Saturn figure for five years who told me all-messed-around kind of stuff because I was messed up enough to give the wrong people false authority.

    In that case I guess you ignore that one and wait for the next one πŸ™‚

  32. WOW!

    Elsa, thank you for the “insight.” I was meant to see your post today, because I want to give up, again! But, this re-enforces my belief that Saturn is on my side, although the lessons are hard.

    Many times I want to give up — with the notion that “What’s the point?” “Why am I doing this?” “Am I on the right track?”

    When I let go, some unseen FORCE appears.

    You are a GEM! Don’t stop!

    Thank you again, Elsa, and may the FORCE forever guide your path!


  33. I truly love this post. I had heard it before, but seeing it again is really great right now.

    I have Saturn and Pluto conjunct in my chart and my Saturn is in Scorpio so these influences are strongly felt in my life. I always got along well with most authority figure (Sun, ASC, MC trine Saturn/Pluto) but I struggled in school (Mercury square Saturn/Pluto).. and not for lack of understanding (I understand what I’m being taught well.. I just used to sabotage myself by not doing the work or studying enough for exams!) After being kicked out of school twice, I got more serious and I got automatic support… It seems that even if I mess up a couple of times, I always get support if I go on a more serious and determined outlook. I have Mars square Neptune so many false starts happening but if I’m serious enough, I’ll get support and succeed!

    Thanks again for the video Elsa! πŸ™‚

  34. I also have Mars in Cancer (1st) square to Neptune in Scorpio (5th). Talk about false starts, trial and error!

    Although I don’t feel the passionate writer’s soul, I met an astrologer many years ago, who has been my guide toward the North Node.


  35. Elsa, I’ve been a lurker for several months, and this has made me come out.

    I do have a tale to tell, but no time to tell it. However, I have to say YOU ARE PHENOMENAL.

    I know that kind words don’t put bread on the table, and if I were a wealthy woman, I’d be your patron ….. What I can do is ‘put the money where the mouth is’ and join the Colosseum.

    First, I have to find the entrance (I found it a while ago, then lost it again)

  36. WOW…

    I needed to watch this vid! I have been asking for “signs” for a long time if I am on the right track. I am not sure if I am going through a saturn transit right now, but I this vid really reminded me of the signs I need to watch out for. Actually, there is this older man at my job who always tells me that I should back to school and to stop wasting my time…maybe that is a sign?! hehehe.

    BTW…Elsa, you look great in jewel tones! πŸ™‚

  37. Great post!
    I’m on the lookout for old Capricorn men now as I’ve got Saturn opposing my sun, squaring my moon, inconjuncting my mars and sextiling my Asc. Whew!

  38. Awesome! Thanks, Elsa! I think this vid is possibly my favorite of all you’ve done.

    I’m having Saturn trine my Moon & Sun (and will soon trine my Venus, too). And along with a bunch of other intense transits, I’ve been questioning if I’m on the right path.

    And then I watched your video! Lightbulb! I keep having a number of dreams where I either meet a police-officer, or one comes to visit me, or I call one on the phone (via 911), and EVERY time, they tell me: “You did the right thing.” Every. Single. Time.

    So yay! Thanks again, Elsa! You rock, Lady! πŸ™‚

  39. Wow––this is so dead on for me right now.

    I’m going to have to watch it a third time, cause I’m still in shock.

    Thank you Elsa, this is exactly what I needed to hear.

  40. Hmmm… My boss (older man) says I should study instead of working in this shithole (his own words) πŸ˜€ He’s right, but I need to stay for another year so I can clear my debts. Then I’ll study. I feel like I’m on the right path, it’s just taking ages.

  41. LOVE this video Elsa, thank you so much for posting this, so simple but so effective too!
    Keep up the good work and don’t let the negative people that comment on your GREAT blog, get you down! You know you are on the right path with this one ;o) Thanks again.

  42. Cool, simple! So how would one translate this through the houses? For example, Saturn in Virgo kicked my butt in the 10th when it went through there but I am trying to remember any Father figures and I can’t think if any really. I find I had NO support at all (or could be indicative of the unsupportive boyfriend I had at the time – although that wouldn’t translate to 10th house). Saturn in Libra was more symbolic – Libra is my 11th house – I made scarey change (away from the unsupportive boyfriend) and had supportive of father figure (my dad) and now in the past few years, I had made a few new friends in groups – Capricorns and older men types. And I have no doubt that I am going in the right direction in those situations because my Virgo help is accepted and not rejected. I am guessing this theory would apply to all planet transits than? Like if Pluto is transiting a certain house, you look for the support of Scorpio types?

  43. How about older, saturn/authority type women? By this, I mean women that were or are still teachers, our apartment complex manager (she runs the whole place and comes across VERY saturn to me), etc? Would that be a saturn type figure also? I ask, as I’m having a saturn transit, though it’s a trine to my sun/sextile my moon and I’ve got tons of these types of saturn figures that are going out their way to help me. But no old men, no cops, no others like you mention in the video.
    Thanks for your help, this was so perfectly timed this morning,

  44. Elsa, thanks for sharing. I get it now! You could not have explained the awareness of saturn transits better than what you did. I have an older lady who volunteers her time where I work and she is a capricorn. Also, a great friend of mine who I had not seen in years, he and I been talking lately about relationships. He’s also a capricorn. I know both of these saturn figures are teaching me that I’m on the right path. Amazing! Thanks again for you and your wonderful blog. I LOVE ASTROLOGY and all of its ELEMENTS!!!!

  45. πŸ™‚ A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!!!!! πŸ™‚
    Thanks Elsa, that is just the slightest lift in the heavy pressure applying today that I needed to get the ball rolling πŸ™‚

  46. I just think you’re great Elsa:)
    Anyway, Saturn is transiting my Scorpio stellium right now. I have had some older women come into my life. They’ve all told me to find a man. I appreciate the guidance, and I’m working on what they’re telling me to work on.

  47. This is a favourite on the Best of Elsa for me too. Thank you so much. Your videos and forum discussions always hit the nail on the head with compassion but such clarity. Then all the people commenting help further my understanding. This is great Elsa!

  48. πŸ™‚ Love you Elsa P.

    However what if you are dealing with a Small Man posing as a Saturn Figure?

    I talked to a complete moron at seven in the morning today. Completely idiotic men, all day, told me I sucked.

    Men I loved and respected told me it was okay.

    I think one has to be careful whom one congratulates as Saturn. With Pluto, Neptune and Scorpio themes it seems there are imposters.

  49. How long it will be true Elsa?? Until Saturn square Pluto??

    One Capi helped me out during my bad days on April 2012. Not sure how long I’ll get protection from him.

  50. I did look at this video a while ago, and I did notice a turnaround with my Saturn figures. Many people are telling me I’m on the right track these days, and I’m feeling this.

    Of the numerous videos you have produced, this is the one that changed my life the most. As a Sun square Saturn native, I’m taking more in stride comments from Saturn figures pointing out my mistakes.

    And for once, I’m doing quite well during a Saturn transit. I don’t know if it’s because Saturn in Scorpio is gentler towards people with Virgo and Pisces placements, or if it’s because of the effort I had to put in during Saturn in Libra, but I’m finally faring well during a Saturn transit.

    So thanks for making this video Elsa.

  51. It’s like pushing a giant boulder up a mountain, with every one step you take forward you slide back two. At some point you become aware of the lack of progress…that’s when you need to step aside and let the boulder roll past you.

  52. This is fantastic and so true. I had an experience years ago where a Saturn authority figure was very prominent in encouraging me on my path (once I determined where to go). I am in a similar situation these days – just need to find another Saturn person! Thanks for reposting this Elsa!

  53. I lurk around you site often, and had to post on this one. Bingo. I realize how much I need a Saturn figure at the moment.

    Saturn/Scorp in House 5 has been a tough one for me. Thank you so much for the video!!

  54. …proud to be the 100 respond to this post-
    thank you elsa- i’ve been feeling like crying for a whole week- watching this video made me realise it has begun: saturn opposite moon and pluto square saturn transits on top of my head.
    hope i’ll survive.
    will be watching out for the saturn figures- but hey, elsa- you are probably my first one:-)
    thank you!!

  55. Thank you Elsa. It’s my Grandmother’s name and also my favorite quote in life.

    ”There but for the ____ of God, go I.”


  56. I’m glad and grateful that the support you need to keep this blog going always surfaces, Elsa. Because every time I need you, there you are. A rock. Solid. Thank you.

    And thanks for those reports. They are helping me make decisions I need to make.

    Oh… and this video? Bang on. Thank you for that too.

  57. Wow… As soon as Saturn moved into orb of square to my natal Venus (January, approximately), I *did* indeed meet a Saturn figure – older man, with his Sun conjunct Saturn. This was a very helpful and accurate explaination. Thankyou so much Elsa.

  58. I am in the middle of a first house Saturn transit and there is an older male figure in my life, a Capricorn. It’s a professional relationship and I couldn’t respect him or like him as a person more.

  59. The greatest trick the devil/saturn played was to convince astrologers that all that is his is neptunes, and all that is neptunes is his.

  60. Wow, excellent. And while going thru my transit, yup, I have met three very supportive Capricorns telling me I am doing well and urging me on. To repeat: wow! Paying attention!!

  61. This just happened to me this morning! I’m sooo grateful!!! I wasn’t sure about a future decision and in walks a Saturn figure in my life with the solution, the direction. I’ve been praying a lot, every day. Prayer, patience, faith.

  62. Seems like lately that I have been nickled and dimed to death with some longer term Saturn transits (as well as some heavier game changers re kin and death).

    I am isolated due to my addictions so I don’t have a lot of Capricorn cheerleaders. I have “friends” and family galore who accept me. And colleagues that respect me a lot and for those, I am very grateful.

    But I

  63. No Buts! haha. I am my best advocate. I can do anything and I have become successful from nothing. Just a little weary of my life right now…
