Are there any transits you might see in a chart when a person is caregiving? Or perhaps placements in their natal chart?

I’m specifically thinking about caregiving for elderly parent(s).

I think it’s a Cancer / Virgo thing. 6th house, 4th house and maybe Capricorn as well.

Service and parenting, basically.  Great question.

Thanks, Elsa.  That makes sense. 

Covid 19 has shifted my views on caregiving. I feel determined to look after my parents well and keep them out of nursing homes if it’s possible. Maybe it’s all the Capricorn transits.

Right what Elsa said. I’ve experienced it w/ Saturn/Virgo t my 6th house (pets), Saturn/Moon (opposition) at work and extreme, Saturn/Sun can be father care taking due to  illness, Saturn t 4th (in laws passed).

Well me and my mom have fallen into caregiving for  my stepdad. I will have to look at transits that we have in common. She really struggles with it emotionally, although she is doing a good job. Shes a double Taurus and used to being taken care of.

Both my parents died before needing caregiving. I was my husbands caregiver but of course that is a different dynamic. My MC and jupiter is in Virgo.

I’ve been a care giver for my mom most of my adult life. I’ve put it down to having a 12th house sun (service & sacrifice).

Oh I forgot about my 12th house Sun. Mine has played out in sacrifice and confinement.

How about a 12th house Moon?  Or 12th house outer planets transits? 

I was just thinking it feels like the roles have changed, especially with my mom. It feels like I’m the parent now.  Pluto is transiting my moon. My mom is dependent on me emotionally now, as well as physically. Somedays it feels like a Pluto thing. She can get really down some days and say hurtful things. Thankfully I’ve developed patience.  I used to be lacking in it.

I’d say Saturn transiting the 4th house or even 10th house indicates the possibility of increased responsibilities regarding caring for a parent especially if age-wise it’s coming (e.g. parents in late 70s.)

Mentally the switch to more caregiving in a person’s life might be linked to progressions…and then transits might bring about the event of more caregiving required perhaps…

Natally I’m thinking Saturn/Sun,  Saturn/Moon and Saturn/Venus conjunctions…12th house luminaries…Cancer luminaries…Capricorn luminaries…stelliums in the 6th house…some ideas jumping in my mind.

This is a very interesting topic and question.

Pluto-Moon transits can be really tough. Because the moon represents the mother, it can certainly bring some hardships in this area. I can fully understand how this can be a challenging time for you, Maria.

Cris mentioned transiting Saturn on the parental axis. This makes sense to me. Since my last post, I have been thinking about how my natal Saturn in 4th, may contribute to my strong sense of responsibility towards family.

Not surprised you’ve Saturn in 4th Hades Moon, with you being a caregiver most of your adult life.
