    Saturn Transits Mars

    When transiting Saturn aspects Mars your assertiveness, drive, and fighting spirit are put to the test. You feel more determined and persistent than ever, but a lot of actions seem to meet with major resistance. It seems that no matter how hard you try or how much energy is exerted, life keeps blocking your desires. It is generally a frustrating time, and so you must maintain a higher awareness of what properties are in operation and trials are presented on the handling of aggression, anger, and going after what you want. This transit is familiarly known to bring false starts, unsuccessful efforts, and timing that is generally off. Under this…

    Saturn Transits Venus

    When transiting Saturn aspects Venus, you get practical and serious about your love life. The trine is particularly lovely and I have seen it in the chart of a woman who just got married who articulated feelings of security, happiness, emotional stability in committing herself wholeheartedly to her partner. Love can be solidified under these transits, both hard and soft, where greater seriousness is given, more responsibility, and even a few testing times. This transit could also signify the involvement with an older (Saturn) lover (Venus), someone who is successful or in a position of authority. During this cycle, you are re-examining your values, looking at your relationship goals, and…

    Saturn Transits Mercury

    When transiting Saturn aspects Mercury, you become thoughtful, careful in speech, and serious in thinking. You ponder deeply on things, focus on practical matters, and analyze experiences with a heaviness in mind. It seems that, at least from your perception, life has slowed down. It could be a period that demands some weighty decisions be made in order to lay the groundwork for the next few years. Life also seems to demand that you put some of your ideas into reality, and presents you with the responsibility of handling maturely all areas of business – personal, or otherwise. This could be when you feel the world demands too much of…

    Transiting Saturn Aspects the Moon

    When transiting Saturn aspects the Moon, there is a heavier focus on your feelings, emotions, and need for security. It is a time of sobering introspection, perhaps even a period of aloneness. If you properly use this cycle, however, it’s not all doom and gloom and you will achieve immense inner growth, self-reliance, and a greater sense of stability. Psychologists say that emotional steadiness is a direct contributor to happiness because without it you fall into a pattern of jealousy, heartache, and depression. This is also a transit to press down quite hard if you have been emotionally immature and unstable and haven’t been developing that inner sense of independence…

    When transiting Saturn aspects the Sun, it could be a time of testing, and you may be faced with situations requiring strength, character, and maturity. It often asks for a period of evaluation of your purpose, direction, goals, and sense of self-development.

This transit can involve a decision to grow up, and often afterward you’ll notice that you really did begin to make more of your potential. Also, you’ll begin to honor what…

    Saturn Transits the 12th House

    When Saturn transits the 12th house, it’s time for your most introspective period yet! It’s when you say to others, “I’ve been doing some soul-searching,” and the contemplative side of your personality takes ascendancy. Astrologers say this a good time for tying up loose ends, revisiting the past, and seeing to unfinished business. ‘Behind-the-scenes’ activities are focused upon, and there is a lot of pensive reflection and generally taking stock of life. Being pressured to look inwards, you might have the desire to delve into psychology, dreamwork, astrology, and spirituality studies. Looking at the deeper meaning of your life, engaging the soul and psyche in deep analysis, and integrating all of your experiences…

    Saturn Transits the 11th House

    When Saturn transits the 11th house, there may be a reticence, aloofness or even shyness that can interfere with the easy making of friendships or the creating of associations. However, we might be able to overcome this feeling of reserve and actually find that our personal ambitions can be advanced as a result of our connections with influential people and through linking with organizations of a business nature. Often a business advancement or the rendering of some form of service of a public or semi-public service usually occurs. Any well established friendly connections will now assist in the extending of our hopes and wishes. Some of us will be connected…

    Saturn Transits the 10th House

    When Saturn transits the 10th house, we have pressure on us to take responsibility for our career efforts. This insistence could come from within or outside of the workplace and it needs to be confronted. We all know or should know that stress is just a part of life. With this transit, there is as much emphasis on maintaining career stability as on career development, and the highest source of stress is “worrying” because of the frustrating workload, unrelenting demands, and nerve-wracking deadlines, which can take their toll. Sometimes this cycle requires us to stay strong even when feeling weak and emotional. We have to be careful not to take out…

    Saturn Transits the 9th House

    When Saturn transits the 9th house there will be issues concerned with traveling and seeking higher education, finding laws and meanings, or generally learning in a more scholarly way. The young became more discriminating, allowing themselves time to travel or study seriously in a limited area that they had chosen because of its particular appeal to them. Under this transiting period, it could also represent getting real about our spirituality and grounded with our faith and convictions. . We might now feel that it is time to master the spiritual domain so that we can have some accreditation, and so we look into some ancient masters. When it comes to…

    Saturn Transits the 8th House

    When Saturn transits through the 8th house, hidden powers and controlling habit patterns are examined, and obsessive-compulsive tendencies will be faced. Apart from the devil, a man has only one other enemy; that enemy is his own self. We tend to be serious in looking deeper into our emotional problems. Sometimes we address our strengths and weaknesses, and so this can be a time of psychological contemplation, and the goals are to let go of the hurts and hang-ups that are holding us back. This is often a period of great emotional vulnerability and inner injuries. It often involves dealing with our emotional cuts and scrapes, and the internal ones…
