Saturn Opposite Jupiter Transit; A Crisis of Faith 

Perhaps I should have called my first post on Saturn opposite Jupiter transit “a crisis of faith” that’s what it is really and the closer the orb gets the greater the crisis will be I imagine. Make it till January Danielle that’s all you have to do; that is what I tell myself.

I can be a runner in some ways but I have decided to face my shit so I’m no longer carrying it with me. When sad in typical Cancer fashion I call out sick and stay home for a week to nurse my wounds. This time I have decided to confront my them head on. After all we can’t heal what we refuse to face.

Jupiter governs the 9th house in astrology home to religion, beliefs, and politics when Saturn is in hard aspect to Jupiter via transit your beliefs come into question. I have found people have been talking to me about “God” more so than ever before.  I was checking in a guest and he asked me if God exists, a colleague wanted to know why people post Pray for Syria and if God existed would this be happening? I don’t believe in God- not in the sense- one man is in the clouds dictating our lives. I have never believed in God like that. My guest called me a Humanist when I explained this to him. I shy away from labels generally speaking. How very Aquarius rising of me

I encountered an issue recently that set me back financially and a disappointment in my love life that was harsh. Disappointment can be debilitating to me I am naturally so hopeful. Disappointments in love are not an anomaly I have Saturn in the 7th house it sorts of comes with the territory. This year numerologicaly (universally) has been a nine year this signifies the end of a cycle.  I can see a montage of bad relationships choices laid out in front of me. The culmination of bad choices I refuse to carry with me into 2017! I refuse.

Stop putting hope in false prophets may be another Saturn opposite Jupiter catch phrase. “I release the pattern within my consciousness that created this condition” is one of my daily Louise Hay Affirmations I’m forever drawn to melancholic men that wear sadness like a cloak. The next one has to be happy I tell myself that should be the #1 criteria You can’t save anyone shit sometimes you can’t even love them; they won’t let you.

“When you have lived in a Dungeon for a very long time the light when you see it can actually hurt your eyes” – Marianne Williamson

So, here is Saturn calling me on my Jupiterian beliefs. I believe in Law of Attraction I believe in working with the cycles of your life I love Eckhart Tolle and Abraham Hicks I believe (such a Jupiter word) in those teachings so now it’s time to find practical application for them (Saturn) I have a social media account that’s comprised of astrology but also of spiritual texts I can tweet Louise Hay all day but if I’m not living it well that’s just bullshit. You aren’t what you say you will do…. you are what you do. (Ah a major 2016 lesson) so it’s time to get real (Saturn) about my spirituality (Jupiter) it’s time to go to work on it. It’s time to wake up and go balls to the wall with my faith. Transcend my own man-made prisons, change my subconscious limiting beliefs, not crumble in the face of disappointment and truly believe that “everything is working out for me”.  I will drag my ass out of bed and one day at a time, one affirmation at a time, one mediation at a time align with the belief (Jupiter) that within the next 4 weeks when this transit is over, I will be shiny and new.

Saturn the Buzz Kill to Jupiter

I am tired, drained really, I do not have much energy and I feel the energy I do have is spent doing what I have to do, I don’t really have any excess to do the things I want to do. I have the Sun in the 5th house my identity, my journey if you will is centered around love and creativity. The 5th house is the house of joy; being weighed down with extra responsibilities is exhausting.

It is very important that you tend to your natal Sun, that you nourish it with the activities suggested by the house that it is placed in. 6th house Sun, fitness time and order will really help you flourish. If you have a 9th house Sun schedule a vacation or attend a lecture. Wherever our Sun is placed we need to remember to feed it.

Energetically I always run very high I have Sun square Moon, a Cardinal T square in my chart along with a Grand Fire Trine. Cardinal signs are doers. My Mom said she was going to buy me a makeup bag that read “I am busy” because I always am. I laugh at people that have the time to correct my grammatical errors on twitter, I am pretty sure they aren’t doing all that I do in a day. Running, going, writing, working, giving readings, taken a class, on and on and on until this week I hit a wall.

The culprit; Saturn is opposite my Jupiter via transit

Saturn Rules

  • Responsibility
  • Time
  • Work
  • Boundaries
  • Lessons
  • Practicality Zzzzzzz

According to Jeanne Avery in Astrological Aspects Your Inner Dialogs

Saturn “describes shoulds, musts, and ought’s”

“Saturn is the testing ground of life and indicates the greatest karmic lesson to be learned”

I don’t do Saturn very well.

I believe if you look to the natal chart you will see how hard a transit for you will be. Not all astrologers believe this; I think if you are heavy say Plutonian Pluto transits will be easier for you because you are familiar with that energy. I have Pluto square my Sun, opposite my Moon exact, trine Jupiter, sextile Saturn, Neptune & Midheaven and trine my Ascendant. Pluto is woven into me, death and rebirth it all comes naturally. I just finished a Pluto opposite Sun square Moon transit and it was pretty much all gravy.

But Saturn transits god you can find me lying in bed weeping.

I am just not very good with rules and structure I prefer to be free floating.

Saturn is now opposing my natal Jupiter in the 4th house it will be exact on New Year’s Eve Oh the joy

Jupiter Represents

  • Expansion
  • Optimism
  • Good Luck
  • Joy

“The Jupitarian quality is a marvelous combination of practicality and enthusiasm. The reverse quality is disappointment. If the aim is too high and the goals are missed the individual can be paralyzed by the letdown” –Jeanne Avery

You want to look where Jupiter and Sagittarius are placed in your natal chart to see where you feel lucky or optimistic. I have Sagittarius on my Midheaven, I think this gives me a hope that things will work out and when they don’t, I would say I am greatly disappointed. I usually work from an inner knowing which stems from my natal Jupiter in the 4th house. The 4th house is the root of the chart and reflects what we carry deep within us among other things. So, I have never been a 5-year planner I am a go with the flow listen to my own guidance sort of person.

I intuit mostly everything I do. I announced the other day at work I was booking a trip to Machu Piccchu and my colleague said Oh Peru…I had no idea where it even was! I sort of get called to do things

I have written before that I do not feel Jupiter brings us lotto wins or grand romances, I think it infuses the planet or house with an optimism and belief that everything will be ok and usually it is until it isn’t.

And that brings me to Saturn opposite Jupiter

Saturn squashes the belief, the optimism, the joy that Jupiter holds. It tests (Saturn always tests) your beliefs, your truths, your inner workings (if Jupiter is in the 4th house).

Robert Hand writes in his book Planets in Aspect about Saturn opposite Jupiter transit

“During this time your opportunities for growth and expansion are limited”.

PROBABLY BECAUSE YOU ARE TOO F&%ING TIRED TO DO ANYTHING

“You often feel as if your personal freedom is unduly limited by others”.

“This transit is a useful if not always pleasant encounter with reality”

Saturn squelches the joy and optimism of Jupiter don’t let anyone ever tell you any different.

For those of you that have this natal oppositions can work like a swinging door so you can be optimistic, joyful, overly eager and then fall victim to Saturn the disappointment, melancholy, and depression can kick in. Robert Plletier writes in “Planets in Aspect” those that have this natal

“You fluctuate between knowing what you are worth to having doubts about your value”

I know this isn’t the worst transit, (those will happen for me in 2018 when Saturn enters Capricorn, I seriously just finished recovering from Saturn in Libra) that’s the beauty that comes with age when you are young you think this will never end, when you are older and know astrology you can simply open your ephemeris and say I may have to drag my uninspired tired ass all the way through December but as of January 1st this transit is over and I can go back to being my high energy manic self perhaps with a few lessons in the bag.

Saturn opposite Mars Transit Part 2

This is a continuation from Mars Opposite Saturn Part 1 You can read that here

Saturn opposite Mars Transit disengage your rage

Today while I was driving someone was in front of me in the middle highway lane doing 30 mph & in the passing lane doing 30. I couldn’t get around anyone. This is my everyday struggle being behind someone that drives like Fred Flintstone, driving behind someone with out of state plates, driving behind a vehicle that has navigation on. It’s a daily occurrence at 6am, 1pm or 1am that I find myself sitting in traffic. I mentioned in a previous post this transit is known to bring forth rage. And I can see why. Mars is assertive energy, its drive, its force & Saturn is the brick wall that stops you.
Don’t let the fact that my mars is in Taurus fool you. I know, I know, Taurus is slow….really slow it’s considered the slowest earth sign but put Mars ; the planet of action in the 3rd house & I have a need for speed. The 3rd house rules getting around, it rules walking, driving, traveling, communication & your thought process. That is all slowing down. I slept for 20 hours the other day!
I drive fast; I have always driven fast on my driving test many moons ago they wrote that I was heavy on the gas, I talk fast; I’ve been told I’m abrupt & have no filter. I never want to convey to people I am some all Zen astrologer because I am not. My mind rarely shuts off it’s always going. I’ve been told I walk so fast when I pass someone they feel a breeze….this is why the sign & house placement are important in astrology! If I had mars in Taurus but in the 4th house I would probably exert my energy doing house repairs!

Saturn is retrograde right now in Scorpio before a planet turns retrograde it stations. It is said to be slowing down and standing still before heading into retrograde motion. Saturn was standing still exactly opposite my mars at 23 degrees it will back up until 16 degrees of Scorpio before going direct & over my Mars again. This transit is particularly long and arduous because my Mars is on the retrograde degree of Saturn.
I don’t see the lesson totally I don’t get the point, slow down, stop, relax I’m sure it has something to do with being patient. Two people I know out of the blue gave me lectures about letting things go, about the dangers of raging against the wrong person how someone can shoot you. I have been thinking twice before I flip off a Fred Flintstone while driving or throw someone’s purse on the floor that is taken up two seats on the train…yes I have done that! I’m grateful that I haven’t broken anything my friend with Saturn transiting the 3rd broke her arm while slipping on the train & is now in physical therapy.
Slow down is clearly the message but personally I have a need for speed & this transit is a Debbie Downer. You should know I wrote this post while stuck on the train in a tunnel “sorry for the delay there is train traffic ahead” …wow how original it seems I cant escape the epic halts

Saturn opposite Mars Transit disengage your rage

I want to cry, I want to scream I want to sleep for days & most of all I want to be left alone. I’am writing this while waiting for the train, I’m waiting because the doors just closed in my face. Last night I left work 1 hour early so I could get home early instead it took 2 hours. The subway announced something like this: attention all passengers due to track work expect delays in the early morning, in the late night & on the weekends. They should’ve just announced when there wouldn’t be track work. I’m having a Saturn opposite Mars transit. It’s getting tighter by the day. I’m unraveling more each day. Saturn Father Time, Lord of Karma, responsibility.. the authority is in the 9th house opposing my Mars in the 3rd house Mars rules action, aggression, the 3rd house rules community, transportation, communication, cars, transit, siblings, neighbors. Yesterday I was taking a nap only to be awaken by security in my building telling me to re park my car as it wasn’t inside the lines. Really? That’s Saturn for you, holding you accountable, he is the task master; making sure you do shit right. I don’t care about doing shit the “right” way. I want to do it my way. Mars square Saturn natal I say fuck the man, screw the system,rules are made to be broken. The night before I went out & when I wanted to take the train home I was informed I had to go six stops back to get on a different train to get to my stop. That seems to be the Saturn opposite Mars transit theme; six steps forward to go six steps back. I’ve read this is one of the more frustrating transits as you are filled with rage & you have to be careful to not go off on anyone or internalize it. Where is the release? The other day a car almost ran me over & I hit his mirror when he missed I was going to hit the car again but I slipped on ice & lost my footing …the universe was like no no be careful tread lightly. I feel like people are coming at me so I’ve made it a point to disengage my rage, I work with a woman that is quite erratic she once called the police on me after a work meeting & attempted to have me arrested when she didn’t like what I had to say. She became angry with me this week over some nonsense & I quietly said if you have an issue with me please don’t talk to me. I work with people all day & yesterday it appeared one after another were looking for an argument. I just kept telling myself don’t respond. This is going to be along transit & a difficult one. I hate saturn I hate him in synastry, natal & via transit. His energy is hard for me to adhere to. My chart is all cardinal I lead, I go, I’m on the move. My mars sextiles my mercury I’m fast mentally I grasp ideas & am quick verbally but the lesson of this transit is slow down ..really I wish someone could wake me when it’s over.

Some random Saturn lessons:
When Saturn squared my venus I learned love takes work more work than I was prepared to give

Saturn opposite my moon I was sad and spent time with a man that was melancholy. The theme misery loves company

Saturn square Sun: control is an illusion you can’t force anything in this life what is meant to be will be

Saturn Transiting 8th House, Show Me The Money

Saturn conjunct my chart ruler: sometimes life doesn’t provide an escape hatch & you have to grin & bear it

Lessons of a Saturn Transit

Uranus Conjunct Saturn the battle continues

Next year I’ll have saturn opposite Venus…oh goody I really can’t wait
this is the app time passages everyone should have it:

Let sleeping babies lie; Saturn in synastry

Saturn on the Sun, Moon, and Venus is deemed one of the worst aspects in synastry. You need more than one aspect to declare this. Everything is good in moderation, even Pluto but put it on several of another person’s personal planets and you may feel as though you are living inside an episode of Revenge.

Revenge

I have several blog entries about Saturn due to meeting someone over the summer. Not a lover but not quite just a friend, all I know is I found his mind to be electric, I found him to be fascinating and different then what I had been experiencing over the last few years. If anything I was worried about all our Venus connections and superficial ties. I don’t do superficiality

Venus is Synastry Light and Fluffy coming right up


I saw that his Saturn was on my Sun, Moon, and Mercury and we had a dreadful Saturn square Venus Composite (this one never survives) but quite honestly even as an astrologer I did not want to believe what was said about Saturn:

saturn in synastry

When older more seasoned astrologers looked at our synastry, it was “Oh”. “Or oh no this is bad”. I could not believe it; after all the two of us on a number of occasions would say to one another. “you are fascinating “and the other would say “oh no you are fascinating” Until fascinatingly enough those Saturn ties kicked in. Saturn rules time, so it takes some time but ultimately those Saturn connections will prevail
At first I believed he simply didn’t like heavy conversations. I’m a get to the root and soul of the matter sort of person, but I was happy to bask in his light.

Love is hard; Saturn aspects


Than I thought maybe I just need to try to break through those walls; I have a way about me I believe in the impossible. Than I thought maybe he is guarded and perhaps accept that there will always be that slight distance

Saturn in Synastry Round 2


but ultimately wah-lah we are at a point where we will not be friends, obviously we cant be lovers. And like a sleeping baby in a movie I felt he was a parent (Saturn rules authority and fathers) tip toeing out of my room as I dream careful not to wake me, tip toe, tip toe and just like that now all that light and fluffy, all those fascinating conversations have diminished and all I see are Saturn ties

Orbs in synastry

The orb is the distance from one planet to another this can be in the natal chart or in synastry; the examination of your chart to another. The tighter the orb or distance from one planet to another the greater the impact. Looking at charts can be overwhelming. All this information often conflicting. I’ve taken the synastry (comparison of 2 charts) of my natal chart & that of a male friend We have a lot of outer planet connections, we have karmic ties what else is new 😉 . If you take a look at his Pluto in the 6th it touches all my personal planets. His Pluto squares my sun by 8 degrees & opposes my moon by 9 degrees this is a very wide distance. Some astrologers wouldn’t even consider this because it’s so far. Personally I would go up to 8. Normally Pluto creates obsessive, intense, crazy loves I’ve written tons of posts about Pluto plutonic love & at first glance one may think we are plunging the depths of one another emotionally but upon further inspection we see his Saturn in the 6th is exact square on my sun & opposite my moon with a 1 degree orb. This is tight tight tight. Saturn is like hitting a brick wall in synastry. He puts up walls between us. That’s fine he is taken so if those walls weren’t up my pants might be down ha ha This is not a complaint but rather an observation for learning purposes. Where Pluto is getting to the root of the root of the planet it touches Saturn keeps the planet at bay, at a distance, don’t get to close; the timing may be off, the Saturn person has other responsibilities. My plutonic love & I had very tight orbs with my Pluto on all his planets. Pluto rules destruction, annihilation I use to fall apart on him, collapse on him You can’t do that with tight Saturn in synastry. You have to walk the line, keep it together. Saturn after all is the disciplinarian of the zodiac. The distance between us is further enhanced by his Uranus in the 7th opposite my venus by 0 degrees that is exact, When I try to get close (venus) he will run (Uranus). I have learned to accept relationships as they are. Trying to find the unacceptable acceptable. So when you are looking at synastry first begin with the tightest aspects up to 3 degrees you will notice them immediately & have to deal with them often. Are you hitting a brick wall?(Saturn) Running for your life? (Uranus) Walking in a dream? (Neptune) Or is apart of you dying only to be reborn? (Pluto) or maybe a bit of all 4

Breaking up is hard to do Outer Planets role in synastry

Breaking up is hard to do Outer Planets role in synastry
I classify people and experiences by outer planets, oh that was one hell of a Saturian experience, there was the Plutonic love, the Neptunian delusion and the what the hell just happened Uranian theme courtship. I’m making this up, but most likely when someone holds some meaning in your life you have outer planets aspecting there chart and vice versa. Meaning there outer planets touch your personal planets. Outer to outer is rather irrelevant. I was thinking about nice breakups, where two people go their separate ways with little to no anger or placing blame. I was thinking about our endings with other people. Strong Uranus ties most likely have no finality, POOF the person just leaves, plutonian endings are tragic; complete annihilation, someone wants to win, couples can see each others inadequacies and use them against one another. Neptune; maybe the person stole your money, maybe you found out on facebook that they have an entire 2nd family; Neptune brings victimization to the forefront, someone feels duped someone feels taken advantage of, someone is invariably left wondering why didn’t I see this about so and so before. Saturn, oh Saturn I think you can have a nice break up with Saturn, I think you can part ways even in hurt with Saturian ties. Saturn is the dad of the zodiac, he is karma, and he wants to do the right thing. That’s the nature of Saturn, you don’t want to destroy the other person like Pluto, dupe them out of their life savings like Neptune, or just pick up and move to India like Uranian ties. You want it to be right; sure there may have been 30 men and women you left before they even woke in the morning. But if you have Saturn ties, you won’t do that. There is a sense of duty that exists with Saturn ties so they or you will say the timing is off, or they or you have other commitments but they won’t burn your house down like Pluto or use your address as an alias when they finally get arrested for all those drugs they sold out of your apartment like Neptune and they won’t disappear like Uranus.

Keys themes for relationships that are very much:

Saturn: time, where did the time go? This is the wrong time? I wish we had more time? Responsibility to work, to family or to someone else. Commitment, responsibility, karma, hard work. These relationships involve work, either the two people will work together, be bound to other work; they will find together they have to work very hard. Break ups can be difficult for whatever reason, Saturn is binding.
Uranus: Here today gone tomorrow, post-it break ups, divorced planned in secret (think Katie Holmes & Tom Cruise), sudden, abrupt, no explanation, when the excitement wears off they are onto the next thing, living in separate states, open relationships, threesomes, unconventional. Breaks up tend to be unexpected and sudden one person doesn’t see it coming.
Neptunian: Deceit sometimes unintended but you see what you want to see, con-artists, drug dealers; did you break up are you still together? You can’t be sure? Never on solid ground, walking between portals, tantric sex, and telepathy. When you break up there is often a sense of why didn’t I see this? How didn’t I know this? Perhaps an identity crisis, a crisis that leads to awakening that not everyone can be trusted
Pluto: death, transformation, annihilation, someone wants to win, dig deep, rip out your heart, tap dance of your soul, get to the root of the root of the person. Darkness, intensity. Breakups are marred by the realization: your life will never be the same again; you will never be the same again. When you break up: Love and hate take central stage, stalking, it’s not over till it’s over and lord you will know when it’s over. It is unlikely you will ever be friends.
What was your best and worst break up?

Saturn in Synastry Round 2

I keep going back and forth on Saturn in synastry. This was my 1st post

Love is hard; Saturn aspects

I think the song “Beneath Your Beautiful” by Labrinth (feat. Emeli Sandé)
is a great representation of Saturn in synastry

You’ve carried on so long
You couldn’t stop if you tried it.
You’ve built your wall so high
That no one could climb it.
But I’m gonna try

Would you let me see beneath your beautiful?
Would you let me see beneath your perfect?
Take it off now, boy, take it off now, boy
I wanna see inside
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight, oh, tonight?

I’m gonna climb on top your ivory tower
I’ll hold your hand and then we’ll jump right out
We’ll be falling, falling but that’s OK
‘Cause I’ll be right here

When Saturn is on your personal planet ultimately the personal planet will feel like they have run up against a wall; maybe you feel like you are banging your head against the wall…repeatedly. There is much to admire about Saturn he is responsible, dutiful, calm & collected. He is together; he is strength on the upswing. I think I must be destined to be with a Saturnian person my Saturn in Leo is on the 7th house descendent. I always find men in control to be sexy, admirable on the positive but on the negative it’s challenging to get an emotional reaction from them, they can live in there head during times they need to live in there heart. I’m not sure I’ve arrived at an accurate conclusion as to how I feel about Saturn in synastry text book analysis Saturn is paternal to you, he lives in a world of realism, he is too harsh on the moon & the sun. At the astrology conference I attended a great astrologer said Saturn puts up walls; Saturn puts distance between whatever planet it touches, it puts space. That can be challenging when you are trying to get close to someone. I wonder how can you break Saturn’s barriers. Or perhaps you need to work with in them. I’m unsure. A brilliant woman on twitter told me: you know Saturn is in your 7th house learn how to cook with it instead of getting burnt by it. That’s some food for thought. Surrender to it instead of opposing it. What do you think? I’m beginning to think I dont really have to choice

The Outer planets (Saturn, Uranus, Pluto and Neptune) in synastry

The Outer planets (Saturn, Uranus, Pluto and Neptune) in synastry are said to carry Karma. When your “outer planer” or someone else’s outer planet is on one of your personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars) it is believed they are here to teach you or a lesson (or vice versa) and that you have lived previous lifetimes with them. Lately people have been asking me about Saturn, personally I have been thinking of Saturn. My go to planet is Pluto; I can’t imagine being involved with someone where Pluto ties were not involved. I’m very plutonian.
Pluto in Love indicates:
Love is transformative Love is deep sharing Love is intense Love is cathartic Love is sexy Love is all consuming
Uranus in Love indicates:
Love is exciting Love is a rollercoaster Love is on again off again Love is electric Love is uncertain Love is freedom
And here we have Saturn;
Saturn in Love indicates:
Love is time Love is hard work Love is responsibility Love is commitment
Heavy Pluto connections indicate transformation is the key ingredient for one or both parties. Uranus’ goal is to wake you up and to some extent enlighten you. Saturn connections are binding, they are commitment. I would say you can set up white picket fence with Saturn. Though god willing you have some Pluto and Uranus added in the mix for excitement and depth.
In Composite Charts (The combined charts of two individuals) AKA the relationships chart how you function as a Unit. Pluto will tell you this relationship is transformative and powerful. Heavy Uranus ties say this relationship is unpredictable perhaps the people have an “open relationship” or live in separate cities. Freedom is highlighted and Saturn well you are dedicated to one another though the connection is less exciting and less transformative and more stable.
In my opinion
The trine and sextile are often easy in syanstry. These are not difficult to manage when two planets meet via trine or sextile.
The Square, conjunction and opposition are considered “hard aspects”
The Conjunction infuses both of the planets
The Squares struggle for dominance
The opposition needs to balance between two energies
Synastry can act like a permanent transit:
If someone s Saturn Conjuncts your Moon Around them you may feel restricted emotionally. There is a serious tone to your relationship
With The Saturn opposition or square moon aspect the Saturn person may be emotionally closed or distant to the moon person. The Saturn Person may feel they are unable to meet the moon person’s needs.
The Saturn person tends to be:
• More Mature
• Here to teach you a lesson
• Restricting
• Distant
• Cold
• Formal
Or perhaps they have previous commitments, obligations, and are unable to fully commit to the personal planet person.
Saturn is tricky, where as Uranus one person may just eventually just leave and in Pluto connections the two may have a fallout that lead to them never speaking again Saturn binds, there is a sense of duty toward one another, so they are binding especially with hard aspects, you feel a sense of obligation and perhaps that in itself is why Saturn ties encourage you to set up a house with a white picket fence together because for whatever reason you can’t just walk away
white picket fence

Love is hard; Saturn aspects

Love is hard; Saturn aspects

Lately I have been thinking about Saturn in synastry, it gets a really bad rap. I heard a relationship (composite) chart with Venus square Saturn will not make it. Venus the planet of love in hard aspect to planet of duty, restriction, and hardship is well uh hard. Love shouldn’t be hard, not in my opinion. Love should be transformative (Pluto) wild (Uranus) transcendental (Neptune) but hard no thank you. I did a reading for someone that often complains about marriage & raising children I knew he was going to have Saturn square Venus because even taking kids to little league games sounds like a chore. No matter who he would have married I would assume he would think, wow this is hard. Secretly I think he blames his wife, but really it’s him. That’s the natal aspect but in synastry if one persons Saturn opposes or squares another persons personal planet Sun (identity), Moon (feelings), Mercury (mind), Venus (love and finance) and Mars (sex) the Saturn person brings with them into the relationship the Saturian energy, for example they can often critique the Sun person for instance my Saturn in Leo squared the Sun of a Taurus I knew and I often made reference to the manner in which he lived his life. Negative references. Why are you this way? Why do you play things so safe? After awhile that can become annoying to the Sun person, for understandable reasons.
Signs are square one another when they are in the same mode Taurus and Leo are both fixed signs but the way they operate is very different.
I also know a person that has Saturn in Libra opposing my Moon in Aries (Aries and Libra are opposite in the zodiac) and while I have tremendous regard for them there is often a sense of not being able to plunge the depths of them emotionally. His Pluto is opposite my Moon which indicates emotional transformation but the degree is much wider than the square from Saturn, the tighter the orb the greater the impact.
While I would try to avoid Saturn in harsh aspect to Moon Sun Venus & definitely Mars (sexual issues like mad) in a Composite/Relationship chart. In Synastry I’m not so sure as of yet. I think it depends on the individual A. If they have a natal Saturn Square Venus and some ones Saturn Squares their Venus they are already accustomed to love being hard etc B. This took me a very long time to learn, but not everyone is looking for emotional exploration. So if I’m closed emotionally and some ones Saturn is in hard aspect to my moon. Maybe I would be ok with that because I like keeping people at emotional distances. The problem would arise when you have someone that is extremely emotional and needs to connect on a deeper level, but they feel the Saturn person is at a distance. You can’t quite reach them.
I would love to hear from anyone that has experienced hard Saturn aspects in synastry or composite. How did this manifest for you? Were you the Saturn person? Is love indeed hard
