It takes Saturn 28.5 years to transit through all the signs and houses in your natal chart. Recently I’ve had a string of clients with transiting Saturn leaving one house and entering another. This is a significant event. I realized there is not much out there about this so I want to feel the void.
Saturn transits a house in your chart for approximately 2.5 years. Each house represents an area of life. When Saturn transits a house in your chart, you mature and take responsibility in the sphere indicated.
For example, if Saturn is transiting your 7th house, you will be doing the right thing by others. You will establish boundaries in relationship and work to balance things.
When Saturn changes houses, it’s akin to graduating. Using the example above, when Saturn leaves your 7th house for your 8th, you should have the give and take between yourself and others, pretty well sorted. With Saturn transiting your 8th, you learn to relate to people on a deeper level. The lessons build on each other. You might see this as the curriculum of life.
When Saturn is nearing the end of one house preparing to enter the next, you may anxious on some level. You’ve worked to get comfortable with the affairs of the current house. In a sense, it’s like starting at the bottom of the mountain again; preparing to master another course. However, if you know astrology, and you see transiting Saturn changing houses, you can be ready for it. It’s not a vague disquieting feeling but exactly what you would expect to feel when you show up to learn something new.
In my world, these shifts are every bit as noticeable as Saturn changing signs. But I have to specify, I use Equal houses. If you use another house system and have houses in your chart that are wildly narrow or wide, I don’t this will apply.
Saturn will be leaving my 1st house for my 2nd house, soon. With Saturn in my 1st house, I let my hair go gray to represent my age. My boundaries at this time are exceptional.
With Saturn transiting my 2nd house, it will be about money management. I will probably have less money, but maybe not. The main thing is that I do the right thing with what I have. There’s more to the 2nd house. I just want to spell this out so you can see how I am clearly working on thing. When I’ve wrapped it, I move into a different arena.
Do you pay attention to Saturn changing houses in your chart?
