Transits are said to be felt the most when an outer planet-Saturn, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto touches a personal planet Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, or Mars. Every transit affects someone differently. When Saturn was on my moon I longed to be with someone I couldn’t have. (Saturn a man with responsibilities & moon ruling feelings). Someone else I know has Saturn restriction on his moon (the mother, the past & roots) he is having issues with his mother. In astrology the moon symbolizes all of these things; feelings, the past, the mother & the home. Saturn’s transit to my sun was the worst but someone else I know that sees the world perpetually through rosé colored glasses didn’t even blink during this transit!
Most astrologers would say that you cannot feel the effects of an outer planet on an outer planet because everyone in your generation will experience that. For instance Uranus was in Scorpio from September 1975 – November 1981, so everyone born during that period will have Uranus in Scorpio & will experience present day Saturn in Scorpio conjoining their natal Uranus.
The outer planets change or pass through the zodiac slowly since they move at very slow speed unlike the moon which can change signs daily or the sun which changes every month or so.
Right now Saturn is conjunct my Uranus and I feel as though I’m suffocating. Look at any planets in 5-8 degrees of the fixed signs to see where you are affected. (Fixed signs are: Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius & Leo). I’m an Aquarius rising so Uranus is my chart ruler I’ve thought perhaps that’s why I’m feeling this or maybe it is due in part that it is occurring in my natal 8th house an intuitive receptive house. All I know is I would like to tell everyone in my life I’m out of order for 30 days figure shit out yourself. Don’t call me with questions, don’t tell me your problems, I’m crumbling. I feel like I’m in a pressure cooker, I have exploded on several people I love dearly & I have to say I may regret the way I said it but not what was said.
I confess this happens to me periodically maybe every 2 years or so I become burnt out, I require a time out. Perhaps it’s my cardinal t-square the doing the going perpetually in overdrive & I feel like the people in my life have no respect for the amount of shit I do in a single day. Or maybe they don’t get it that I have an inability to relax. I also have Capricorn on the 12 the house cusp, father died young the feeling like I must do everything myself blah so I’m working I’m going, I’m planning & then I’m done. Burnt, fizzled out, short circuit. Stick a fork in me!
People at work laugh because I have called my boss & say I need some time off & he’ll say like a day & I’m like “no the week I’ll see you next Monday”.
I have Saturn in the 6th house so I’m that person at work that people call when they need something, I love them & 300 days of the year I don’t mind but when days get like this; I feel like in suffocating. I feel like I’m my Sun in 5th house most days funny, joking laughing but respect the fact that I can’t be that way everyday. And while I have Saturn in the 6th & take my job somewhat seriously there are days perhaps I need an extra break!
Uranus is the ruler of rebellion the avant-garde the eccentric where you go against the grain. Saturn is restriction, responsibilities, things you have to do, he is Father Time. Astrologer’s state when Saturn conjuncts Uranus you feel your expression is restricted, you have a lot of responsibilities to tend too. I cried on the way to work today wondering where is the fun & why have I given up all if the things that are “bad” for me but do not feel any release. Responsibilities feel like burdens, I want to write and create. There is also this becoming very in tuned to the eccentric side of my personality & having to face a harsh reality of the things I’m not, seeing all of the practical things I suck at. Saturn is nothing if not practical like laundry & going to the supermarket. Ugh! I broke down the other day over Christmas tree ornaments Aqua or teal? I don’t know I’m fucking color blind! They could’ve been chartreuse for all I know. Its weird realizing there are things in this life you don’t do very well & these things feel like chores. I cried while throwing out a huge box the other day, it sat in my living room for days I had to throw it out & did so in tears. My coworker said aww don’t cry you are independent. Really I didn’t sign up for this shit or maybe I have Aquarius & Uranus as a chart ruler is nothing if not an independent free spirit.
I would love to hear from those born between September 1975 – November 1981 so you can share with me your experience of Saturn on Uranus.
This is Saturn’s last hurrah for awhile I’ve spent the last 3 years with him in my 8th house this is one of the hardest transits he squared my sun, mercury conjoined my north node and Pluto & now he is on my ruling planet.

On October 2013 he will officially enter my 9th house I think I’m going to plan a bon voyage party! I just have to try to abide by the rules for the time being though I feel like a war is going on inside me a fight for independence vs. the fight for practicality. Which side will win is anyone’s guess.
