A Brief Post on Transiting Saturn Conjoining Natal Neptune

My tagline for this transit is the MTV Real World catchphrase “Find out what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real”.  Saturn conjunct natal Neptune transit is exactly that; when life stops being polite and start getting real.

Neptune is the planet of dreams, delusion, escapism, what we don’t see clearly. I have it placed in my natal 10th house –home to career, goals, life objectives, achievements, status and fame.  The 10th house also is also opposite the 4th house in astrology. When a planet transits a house we always have to think in terms of polarity, so as Saturn transits my 10th house demanding I plan for the future it is also opposite my 4th house -4th house rules family and roots it is no wonder I have been treading through issues of needing to set up my own roots, a desire to somehow have my own family. (Not necessarily in the traditional sense)

With Neptune placed in my 10th I can be very idealistic (I also have a grand fire trine involving my 10th house) so I can carry an idealistic picture of what life should be, maybe what life could be. I do believe all things are possible and that we can wake up one day and alter our entire existence.  And here comes Saturn planet of structure, realism, and hard work conjoining the planet of dreams and escapism. Hold up wait a minute! When Saturn transits Neptune it demands you look at the reality (Saturn) of a situation, it insists you give form (Saturn) to your dreams (Neptune). Saturn is telling you it’s time to get off that cloud and start getting real. If you want your dreams to come true you have to put the work in.

Saturn transits always hit you with a hard dose of reality. For each person this transit will be different, if you have natal Neptune in the 2nd you need to get real about your finances, you may suddenly get a huge wakeup call on how you handle money, if Neptune is in your 7th house you may get a hard dose of reality about your marriage partner. Saturn demands we look at what is while Neptune longs for what could be.  If you were born in the 1970s -1984 you have Neptune in Sagittarius, I would love to know your experiences with this transit as Saturn in Sag will conjoin your Neptune at some point over the next 2 years. It isn’t easy looking at the reality of certain things, wondering if some dreams

 aren’t meant to come true? Wondering how the hell you will turn your dreams into reality. Did I mention Saturn can be the planet of pessimism and brings us face to face with our insecurities …fun times

OH, this transit is going to be a doozy

Saturn reminds us a goal without a plan is just a wish

So, get to work

I will check back with you toward the end of this transit to let you know how it manifested

The 7th House in Astrology

The 7th house indicates the type of marriage partners we select via the sign on the cusp or planets placed inside.  Opposite the 1st house ruled by Aries and self significance we find the 7th house ruled by Libra. The 7th house also rules partnerships of all kind including business and any relationship we have that we enter in a legal contract with. Oddly enough the 7th house is also where we go to find Open enemies (the 12th house is where we find secret or hidden enemies)

The Sun in the 7th house primary focus is relating to others, happiest when in committed relationships they may look to others to validate their existence. May chose showy types that have similar Traits to that of a Leo, dominant marriage partners that you feel you can be proud of and shower with admiration

Moon in the 7th house indicates ups and downs in marriage and business partnerships. You require emotional connection in the scope of relationships, bonding you may seek to mother your spouse or enjoy them mothering and nurturing you. The way you feel on a daily basis is in direct correlation with what is happening between you and your spouse or between you and your business partnerships

Mercury in the 7th house demands you have an intellectual connection with partner. You want to talk, talk, talk or you want someone who is quite communicative. Mental stimulation, debates and anything that encourages mental stimulation is required

Venus in the 7th house how very nice for you!! This indicates you attract partners with ease, may appear charming, witty and an ideal candidate for someone to snatch up and declare “i do ” with. Does not indicate depth but rather a desire for someone good-looking and presentable. May also indicate benefiting financially via marriage partner.

Mars in the 7th house ..oh goodness highly sexually and argumentatively charged position with mars. Be careful of others that are out go get you, also tremendous bickering with partners, business and marriage. Fight and make up sex, some more fighting and some more sex! Beware of being overly assertive or selecting partners that are overly aggressive with you.

Jupiter in the 7th house indicates being married more than once, Jupiter is the planet of over doing and optimism, similar to venus but behaves more like it is on steroids indicating you have natural good luck in attracting marriage partners, they may be affluent or as per Bob Marks Astrologer marrying someone in a Jupiter related field, teaching, law. Fortunate aspect in business partnerships.

Saturn in 7th house I sympathize I have Saturn conjunct my descent. Tears I wish someone had told me in my twenties what this meant ! Delays in marriage or being married young, divorced and then remarried later or you may attract an older partner, one that offers financial security in lieu of affection. There is a parent aspect here. Maybe some apprehension and anxiety about committing and who to commit to, but once you do it will be FOREVER! Yippy!

Uranus in the 7th house requires freedom and unconventionality in partnerships. May attract odd partners or odd circumstances with in partnerships. I know someone who has this and Lives in NY and his girlfriend lives in Santa Fe, and that’s exactly how he likes it. You can expect sudden coming together and suddenly coming apart in marriage

Neptune in the 7th house of partnerships, better get a 2nd opinion on marriage partners and read fine print in business partnerships Neptune may indicate that everything looks perfect! Ah-ha but nothing in life is perfect. You may suffer from DDS damsel in Distress syndrome needing to be rescued or attract partners where you get to play hero and save them from themselves. Watch for partners that are deceptive have addiction issues or are overly helpless.

Pluto in the 7th indicates major transformation and your greatest growth comes via partnerships. Power struggles, being controlling, attracting controlling partners power and control are generally reoccurring themes for you
