call for help - confused about decisions amid Saturn 4th house transit

Hi all, 

I am in the middle of Saturn 4th house transit and am confused about the future. Neptune moved off my natal Saturn at the beginning of this year, feels like I'm starting at zero in my life, so the 4th house transit is helpful in recreating my foundation but has been very challenging thus far. Sloooow no doubt.

I had a reading with Elsa in the fall which was very helpful but unfortunately I am still seeking employment and have to be careful with expenses. So, I thought I'd call on this community for advice.

I remain confused about where I want to live and it's been difficult to make any decisions anyway until I know how much I am going to be earning exactly.

Saturn Uranus square brought me back to the US after a 4 year rootless journey. Everywhere I want to be here are the most expensive places. I've had so many blocks with the job search and it's a waiting game, but now I've been inspired (something that I've always wanted) to work on grad school apps all summer for fully funded programs.

Elsa mentioned it's common that where ever one roots down by the end of this transit, stays put there for a long time.  

I wouldn't even start school (if accepted) until fall 2023. Saturn would be nearing the end of the 4th house but not quite wrapped up. And, who knows if whichever school is where I'd want to stay longterm. I mean maybe? 

I know that I have a couple of more years to "figure it out" as far as lining up astrologically. I feel so much pressure to commit and lay down roots and I want that ... but I guess I'm questioning at a higher level of what I really want professionally for the long view and what is going to make me happy. It feels like a good time to consider furthering my education and do it now if at all. 

So my question I guess is - does this sound seem like it lines up to any of you? Am I overthinking it?

Saturn would be in my 5th house mostly during the duration of school which makes a lot of since as it's a creative degree.

But, what is tripping me up is - what if my decisions now over this transit are too focused on profession and not creating home/where I want to be - then am defying the point of this 4th house lesson?.. I dont know if that makes sense

Perhaps the education you seek I'd meant to be your foundation.

@belladonna I would say this is the case. It’s psychological. It was the case for me. I started grad school apps during this transit as well.

@la_sirena oh wow, thank you so much for sharing that because it is helpful to hear of real life equivalents/examples during specific transits... very interesting! It is going to be a lot to pull off (and given the decade Ive been out of school I am most concerned about collecting rec letters) but apart from that I feel very good about this decision. The hell that was Saturn Neptune fog is over and I can trust my instincts again. But I can also see why the wait was so necessary - in reaching this point of total clarity. I can see now Elsa's point as well - this education could be the foundation I need (4th) to build my way toward Saturn reaching my 10th.

@la_sirena May i ask though why you say psychological - I understand how that relates to the 4th house but what about with grad school?

Yes, you said, “Elsa mentioned it's common that where ever one roots down by the end of this transit, stays put there for a long time.”

I just meant, it’s psychological, your roots. Yours may very well rest upon your education. This will obviously further you in your career eventually as well. So there will be stability, a foundation that rests upon your education. You can take it wherever you go, if you want. I’m moving soon- my 4th is in Scorpio. 

Good luck with everything!

Sorry, not sure if I explained it well. I meant by psychological that your roots may not necessarily have to do with a physical place on a map. Your roots may be psychological- as in, in your mind- your learning, experience, credentials. You will have a foundation with school, yes? You can take that foundation anywhere. The roots can be nurtured anywhere you take them right?

@la_sirena love this! and that resonates so much as I always say I have a lot of wounding around my roots, and don't really feel I belong anywhere. But yes, this makes total sense to me. And, I so hope I am right about this path/get accepted into a program.

I think transit of Jupiter (self esteem, resources) pulling away from Neptune and moving over your 5th and 6th house planetswill be very helpful and conducive to higher ed and eventually fortunate home stuff as  both Jupiter and Uranus (natal fourth house ruler) conjunct at the end of Taurus 2024. This looks like it will happen around your birthday that year. Maybe the solar return will be helpful. Best Wishes BellaDonna Smile
