If you’re heavily mutable like myself, you must be hating these Saturn in Sagittarius transits. Saturn in Sagittarius will be making harsh aspects to other mutable signs (Gemini, Pisces, and Virgo) for the next year and half. Saturn is the task maker in Western Astrology and the house he is transiting along with other aspects show where your practical and worldly lessons will be during this time. For the most part, people hate Saturn transits because Saturn is the critic and tells us what we’ve been doing wrong all along. If we refuse to heed Saturn’s warnings and flashing yellow lights, the consequences can be catastrophic and effect us and others long term. The work will be difficult and we may encounter challenges and obstacles that are hard to overcome (usually with transiting hard aspects) or we gracefully accept and grow to take on more work and responsibilities (usually with transiting trine or sextile aspects).
When Saturn makes a stressful aspect to Venus (conjunction, opposite, or square), the part of ourselves that govern self-worth, our values, money, and love is somehow blocked temporarily or significantly slowed down. Saturn rules boundaries, limitations, and structure so our value system can be restructured during this time. Less evolved people experiencing this transit may be learning that money isn’t everything and the true source of self worth. Unlike the square, a transit from an opposing planet depicts that problems will be coming from others. For example, the native could face substantial criticism from colleagues, loved ones, parents, friends etc. regarding their values, spending habits, or relationships. Trying to avoid the truth and reality of the matter is not how to successfully pass a Saturn transit. Pisces-heavy people or people with many fixed signs may have a harder time going about this transit.
Many astrologers say making money will be more difficult under this transit. This can be time where a serious consequence causes us to realize how much money we’ve really been spending and how much debt we owe. Saturn, being the planet of structure can help us plan how to pay off our finances before they’re irreparable in the long run. On the other hand, the expenses that come with maturation (Saturn) could simply increase. We could acquire more bills and more responsibility. Working hard to earn more money during this transit is a big theme. The chances of becoming rich during this transit is very slim compared to the probability that you may be having to spend more on expenses than you used to. It’s time to cut down and learn the value of living on a monetary budget.
Venus rules loves and relationships, so Saturn making challenging aspects to Venus can bring our love life to a halt. It could be that you have always had a lover or relationship back to back without thinking much about your values and what you want from a partner. Saturn comes to bring a halt to your life for introspection so you can be with someone you really want. Break-ups are very likely during this transit given the opposition aspect or at least a long periodic “break” in the relationship is signified. Individuals experiencing this transit can become cold and distant towards their partners or they could feel that way towards them. This transit usually brings a permanent break from unrealistic or abusive relationships where the native pushes the other out the door.
