Experiences With Saturn House Transits
I have Saturn on my mind. Literally, though! It's now in my 3rd house.
There's a familiarity to it that I do not like at all. Many insecurities and self-limiting thoughts I experienced when it was in the 12th and 1st house have popped back up to the surface.
The last year of it being in my 2nd house was great - I was in hardcore money-saving mode and loving it (as strange as that sounds) and I found some great mentors, including Elsa of course!
When Saturn entered my 3rd house, I started spending money like crazy. And my newly gained confidence dwindled away and I feel a bit lethargic. I know there's a light side to this, of course, so I am hopeful! Thank God for Astrology!
What are your experiences with Saturn house transits? Where did Saturn feel the most comfortable or uncomfortable for you?
PS: I am now seeing concrete proof of the accuracy of the Equal Houses system!
Look up this song: Saturn by Sleeping at Last. That is Saturn for me.
My go to book for Saturn transits, is Liz Greene's, in fact the spines now broken off of it! You can look up Saturn in 3rd and Saturn in Gemini. It's for the natal has good application to transits.
I've got Saturn in my 5th atm. It's kind of painful but that's because of the Aquarius energy in a house which shows something of how you were received or got support for your creative self expression, in the sense of your solar energy, when you started out. Aqua for me just has so many traumatic implications so I'm facing this anew in order to overcome it. There's growth but it hurts.
With Saturn the implication for any transit seems to involve directly facing realities but growing or maturing through the process. Could that be better in certain houses, cardinal perhaps? I think it's always hard. Would also depend on the natal - so to look at the natal Saturn and for 3rd house transit, what's your Mercury situation?
Actually writing that has got me thinking, it could be beneficial to consciously focus and invest in the planet which is the traditional ruler of the house during the Saturn transit - as a sort of counterbalance. So to really focus on your natal Mercury and what that might represent for you. For me it would be my Sun (so Taurus/ruled by Venus/natal 8th h activities). Focusing on this energy may help with the pressure coming from Saturn.
You taught me the courage of stars before you left How light carries on endlessly, even after death With shortness of breath You explained the infinite And how rare and beautiful it is to even exist I couldn't help but ask for you to say it all again I tried to write it down, but I could never find a pen I'd give anything to hear you say it one more time That the universe was made just to be seen by my eyes I couldn't help but ask for you to say it all again I tried to write it down, but I could never find a pen I'd give anything to hear you say it one more time That the universe was made just to be seen by my eyes With shortness of breath I'll try to explain the infinite How rare and beautiful it is to even exist With shortness of breath I'll try to explain the infinite And how rare and beautiful it truly is that we exist
As with all other things astro, much depends on the natal. Eg. My husband is a Virgo rising, 14 degrees AC more or less. When Tr Saturn was on his IC, his father passed away.
His father and I never got along. We have Saturn in our midpoint composite 9th; we had v different world views.
Tr Saturn was in my 3rd, but so was Tr Pluto. I was having Pluto square simultaneously. Pluto is my chart ruler. Can’t really say who did the deed, but it was done.
Anyway when Tr Saturn conjunct his 5th cusp, our teenager started having serious issues. To summarise, she has been seeing a psych for coming on 3 years. We have had counselling, she has behavioural therapy.
Anyway, when this started my Saturn, which rules my 3rd and traditionally also my 4th, was still in my 3rd. It might have been quincunx my Moon and opposite my Sun. When Tr Saturn conjunct my IC, I too started therapy.
Tr Saturn in my 1st, I had my second child. I had tonnes of health issues, which I guess happens with older mothers. Tr Saturn and Tr Jupiter we’re in my 2nd simultaneously. That was an interesting experienced as BOTH manifested! So my finances got a boost, but so did my bills! ?
