Real Power: Saturn’s Transit of Scorpio

“Paradise Lost” by Gustave Dore

This post about Saturn’s wind-down in Libra generated requests for a look at his tour of Scorpio.

So here we go.

First, let’s get something straight about Scorpio. All the ugly stuff people love to hate about this sign (manipulation, obsession, revenge) is generated by Scorpio’s fear of losing power. The sign that generates raw power is obsessed with losing it. Hence Scorpio’s association with death; there is no greater loss, and Scorpio will be confronted with this again and again until the lesson of acceptance is learned.

There is no greater power than the acceptance of loss. Evolved Scorpios are awe inspiring,  because they flow with the cycles of loss and gain. They are the Zodiac’s free-divers. And this is the lesson that Saturn is coming to teach.

Picture the energy of a black hole (Scorpio) squeezed through the eye of a needle (Saturn).  This can manifest as fear (Saturn) of profound change (Scorpio) or focused (Saturn) transformation (Scorpio).  If you have planets in Scorpio, you may experience this as an initial block against your power. You may push forward in your customary way, only to find that you can’t go any further.

As Saturn’s transit progresses, you can learn to accept these limits and exercise that Scorpio will with maturity. This means accept what you cannot change, and heal (rather than destroy or manipulate) what you can. Remember, the highest expression of Scorpio’s power is healing through transformation. Or you can go the other route and batter yourself against Saturn’s restrictions, hurting yourself and others in the process. The Scorpion can  learn to use its stinger carefully, or thrash around in panic as the walls close in.

So, yeah. This will be one intense transit. But what did you expect when the Lord of Karma (Saturn) enters the Underworld (Scorpio)? Wherever Scorpio sits in your chart is where you lose it all and gain something else. It’s the Phoenix-from-the-ashes area of your life. Here’s what to do when Saturn steps in:

  • Be prepared to lose something, even if it’s just your sense of control. Saturn will confront you with fears of loss, abandonment, powerlessness and betrayal. Note that the anticipation may be greater than the actual loss.
  • Focus on what’s left. What can you do to heal yourself? How can you make the situation work for you? Hint: it will not involve obsessing over what you no longer have.
  • Confront what scares you. This could involve deep intimacy, sharing and merging your resources (financial and emotional).
  • Identify energy that you’ve directed towards stalking, controlling, manipulating or holding grudges.  Take all that energy and point it in a direction that is brand new and does not involve control over someone else.

The highest potential of this transit is pretty spectacular. Scorpio energy is potent, but imagine what can manifest if it’s ultra disciplined and focused on the essentials: fearless intimacy, powerful healing, unstoppable drive. If you’ve ever crossed paths with a truly fearless Scorpio, you’ve felt their intense compassion and dedication. That’s real power.

Saturn’s transit of Scorpio will last from October 5th, 2012 to December 23rd, 2014. It will retrograde from Sagittarius into Scorpio from June 16th, 2015 to September 18th, 2015.

  1. Kristen says:

    Saturn in Scorpio will mostly be traveling through my 12th house. I still don’t know much about that house. Any thoughts?

    • Nadia says:

      The 12th represents the hidden parts of your life. Aspects of yourself you are not aware of or have not accepted. Saturn through the 12th can therefore stir up subconscious issues/fears. You may be confronted with the topics I mentioned in the post but find yourself asking “Where did that come from”? Ways to access the 12th: meditation, therapy, retreats where you go off by yourself (the 12th also represents isolation).

  2. jay says:

    It will travel through my third and second house. Looking forward to it hitting my mars in mercury. I am hoping it will help me better channel the intensity of those placements.

    • Nadia says:

      You mean your Mars in Scorpio? Saturn can absolutely help you channel that intensity. Be prepared for some frustration initially as it may feel like many of the actions you take are met with outward resistance. Once you get used to the transit you’ll find a rhythm and increased discipline. This is a fantastic influence for endurance of any kind, but especially physical.

      • jay says:

        Oh I meant that mars and mercury. Sorry for the typo!

        Thanks, looking forward it! Libra in saturn has felt like one long workout routine. Beneficial, but I would like to dig deeper now.

  3. Jeanne says:

    oh no…. i haven’t mastered saturn in libra yet! this will be a doozy

  4. Novlady says:

    I love when practical tips for empowerment are included in the understanding of a transit. Its really helpful.

    • Nadia says:

      Thanks! I’ve always found astrology fascinating but not helpful unless there’s information on how to apply it.

  5. Novlady says:

    During that time, Saturn will be transiting through my 7th house affecting my Scorpio Stellium (Sun, Mercury, Uranus, Juno, Vesta, Parts of Fortune)!!! How does a conjunction manifest? This sounds very potent.

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn over your Sun=restrictions/channeling of your ego. Saturn over your Mercury=crystallization of ideas. Over Uranus=limits on your drive for freedom (in relationships). Over Juno/Vesta=increased awareness of responsibilities in partnerships/devotion to partner. Over Part of Fortune could indicate the appearance of a significant relationship, but one that carries huge responsibilities. In general, you’ll be confronted with issues about freedom versus responsibility in relationships.

      • Novlady says:

        Thanks, Nadia. There is limited information in my search for the Saturn transit (conjunct) asteroids, parts of fortune, etc. Understanding that freedom versus responsibilities could be a major theme, this give me a creative space to become open to harmonious solutions.

  6. mary beth says:

    very glad to see this post as i have been trying to come to terms with the energy of pluto. i get that its divine rather than personal, like mars. i get that its ‘Force’ but as you point out, along with a lot of other good points, we have to stop getting frightened by it.
    i immediately thought of my cap/taurus. i have always sensed that he has never really believed that he would find exactly the right partner for himself (and he has always wanted vulnerable issues to come in exact packaging) and his 7th is ruled by scorpio. he has trust issues and of course, as i have often declared, a total control freak! his relationship with me has been a huge opportunity to re-SEE himself in relationship and of course, its a slow process but it is clear that some inroads are progressing.
    in his culture he has so many obstacles in his way so i am cheering for the higher side of the seagoat.
    always easier to read another’s chart than your own…ha. my scorp house begins at the 6th degree of my 1st house and contains neptune at 20′. i cant imagine how this will unfold but i am not going to think the worst. i have been working on my 5th house where saturn resides in pisces. rather than fear neptune will make me a delusional wreck, i am going to call on my inner lion with sunsharp vision to build structures fit for a fluid environment. this ought to strengthen my ego in all the right ways, yea? i sure hope so. i am claiming my water trine! now i just have to w a i t….(and it occurs to me that what feels like waiting is probably just lower vibrational forward movement)

    and yes, i am seeing that all the points i made about my guy above were all projected by my 1st 😉 but hey, i have been acknowledging my progressions, too, and thats the neat part: you can see the divine appointment in the relationships you have, even if only in retrospect, and that can really bless the parties involved if it is said out loud. its got to be celebrated, not hidden, so that both understand their value even when things dont go as planned.
    nadia, do let me know if i am off track here on anything. still just groping along with the archetypes and energies, as you can well see. xx

    • Nadia says:

      You’re on track. Saturn in Pisces in the 5th has huge potential for manifesting creative power into something solid. Focusing that creative (Pisces) purpose (5th House).

  7. Eleni says:

    It will pass through my 10 house (conjunct my Mars ) and 11 house. Any tips please ?

    • Nadia says:

      Transiting Saturn over Mars can feel frustrating and may initially feel like thwarted career (10th House) ambition but it’s really asking you to focus your ambition in one area. Saturn through the 11th could weed out friends/groups who aren’t supportive so you’ll have to be selective about who you associate with.

  8. Mandy says:

    Saturn has been transiting my 8th all this time. I’ve used it to learn astrology, and take responsibility in my relationship with myself. I’m hoping this 8th house term has been good practice as a solid foundation for when it cruises over my Mercury/Neptune/Sun/Venus/MC in the 9th. With the retrograde, my MC will get hit 3 times. With Capricorn rising, I sense that this will be my opportunity to shine. I just completed my Chiron return, the last year was purge, purge and more purge. I don’t know what more I can do to prepare for this.

  9. Nora says:

    It will pass throught my 4 house, got Mercury, Sun, Lilith, Venus and Neptune there. Scorpio Stellium or so, really sorry, I’m not very familial, just starting with astrology now. In fact Saturn conjuncts my Mercury already, feel I need some time alone and don’t want to socialize that much (to tell the truth – don’t want to socialise at all).
    Any idea on how all that will affect me? Thanks a lot in advance :)

    • Nadia says:

      Pulling back and not wanting to socialize is one manifestation of this energy and will probably continue for this transit. Saturn through the 4th directs your energy inwards, towards the past, home and family. You may have to deal with shared resources (Scorpio) between you and family members, especially parents. As it passes over your Sun, Venus and Neptune you could be confronted with a power shift (Scorpio) in a romantic relationship with someone you live with. Saturn conjunct Lilith could make you aware of restrictions on your female power (sexuality) or how this power needs to be expressed.

      • Nora says:

        Thank you so much, Nadia. Feels good being alone, like returning home and healing. I got also Chiron return infront of me form the end of this month. Would not be eay times, but full of inner growth I think.
        Thanks again!

  10. Dee says:

    Hi Nadia,

    Scorpio rules the cusp of my third house and I have natal Pluto in Virgo in my first house and natal Saturn in my 8th house Aries. What should I concentrate on working on/with please.
    Thank you,

    • Nadia says:

      As Saturn passes through your 3rd it will impact how you communicate. The power (Scorpio) of your words can be focused (enhanced already by 3rd House ruler in Virgo, the sign of precision). Also an excellent time for making concrete (Saturn) plans. Watch out for depression/pessimism because Saturn can limit your viewpoint. If you start to fall into the trap of thinking that nothing is possible, pick one or two realistic goals, focus on them and push forward.

  11. Nora says:

    Really sorry for my horrible English, I am not native speaker.

  12. Bree says:

    Scorpio in the second house with Uranus?

    • Nadia says:

      Natal Uranus in the 2nd can make your financial/emotional security base unstable. It could feel like it’s going to fall out from underneath you at any moment.Uranus in this house can also detach you from your own security needs (perhaps stemming from childhood when these needs were not met…it feels safer now to expect nothing). Saturn can help stabilize this area but this will be delivered via restrictions and limits (which seems counterproductive but Saturn works by stripping away all distractions). Saturn through the 2nd can mean less income, less emotional sustenance. But it’s forcing you to make due with less so you can concentrate on what you do have and strengthen it. You’ll learn to transform (Scorpio) the energy of instability/unpredictability (Uranus) into something that lasts. Saturn’s transit can help you become accustomed to stability. But you’ll have to confront those Uranian issues first…fears of having it all yanked away, detachment from security, etc.

      • Bree says:

        Well, I’ve already been pretty much stripped bare the past few years via saturn return, a bunch of pluto squares and pluto through my fourth, and saturn conjunct natal Pluto. I don’t really have anything else to let go of. I suppose a parent or someone else could die, but I’m already preparing for that mentally/emotionally.

        • Nadia says:

          Remember that Saturn helps stabilize. If you feel that you’ve been stripped bare, this transit might help you build something new. Saturn crystallizes and makes things real. It is an essential component of structural foundations (Capricorn, Saturn’s sign, rules bone structure). The impact of all transits vary according to the amount of prep work done and you’ve done a lot of work already. But no matter what happens, I think it’s safe to say you’ll be approaching financial and emotional security with an extremely rational outlook during this transit. Saturn is reality and when it contacts Uranus (clarity and detachment), the energy is no-nonsense.

          • Bree says:

            Thanks so much, Nadia! I’ve had no problem manifesting abundance in the last few years. The stripping has occurred with family, friends, relationships, and beliefs/illusions. I also haven’t really had a steady home base exactly. I expect to root down somewhere (and hopefully with someone) as you suggested I would as Saturn makes its way to my IC over the next several years.

  13. Future "patient" of yours says:

    A little worried as to what Saturn will do in my 1st house…

    I’ve got Uranus at 17 Scorpio – would the transit be active for the entire 2.5 years or do you use an orb?

    • Nadia says:

      For transiting Saturn I use an orb of roughly 2 degrees. So, figuring in retrograde periods, Saturn will be in orb around your Uranus from Nov 12th, 2013 to Dec 28th, 2013 and May 11th, 2014 to Sept 25th, 2014. For the time between Dec 28th, 2013 and May 11th, 2014 it will be out of orb. This doesn’t mean the effects will switch on and off like a table lamp, but it won’t be a sustained impact for this entire time and you should experience a lightening of the influence while it is out of orb. Saturn transiting through your 1st can bring more responsibilities plus a change in the way you relate to the outside world (your sense of self becomes more defined and serious).

      • Future "patient" of yours says:

        Thank you! Then I’ll have some breathing room next year between Saturn’s hit on my ASC and Uranus, whew.

  14. Bahar says:

    Saturn will be transiting mercury, Venus, mars and sun in Scorpio in 3rd house.How will this transit effect me?
    Thank you

  15. Marie says:

    Sun and venus in scorpio in the 7 th hse ! . . . am scared ! because the last time saturn travelled through scorpio 84/85 my life collapsed ! death, loss, upheavel, awful time !

    Whats in store this time Nadia ?

    Best Wishes,

    M x

    • Nadia says:

      It’s difficult to say by just looking at one transit. Remember that you have to take all the transits that are hitting your chart into consideration. They balance each other out. Saturn through your 7th (hitting your Sun and Venus) can mean more responsibility regarding a relationship. Or your increased awareness of what you’re not getting, romantically speaking. But you really need to look at all the information.

  16. Lynne says:

    Saturn will pass through my 8th house where Mars is. Will have just finished my second Saturn return which has been a whopper! So what’s in store?

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn through the 8th over Mars can mean a restriction on shared finances (your partner’s finances) and/or an increased awareness on your part about what you want to/don’t want to/are capable of giving to another person sexually or emotionally. Saturn over Mars can feel frustrating because your identity (in the 8th House context) will feel blocked or shut down. That’s when you need to re-focus your energies because there will be an appropriate direction and with Saturn it will be whatever path is left open after the others have been closed.

  17. barb says:

    Uh oh. Saturn will hit my IC, and then trigger my t-square of Venus on the MC, Saturn in the 6th and Neptune in the 4th. This sounds like i may finally meet someone and move in with him…merging. I’ve been single my whole life, so this could be a doozy. Or, it could be my Dad….lets hope not.

  18. lillyfee says:

    dear nadia

    saturn will enter scorpio (on 5th house cusp) and soon make a conjunction to my uranus/moon konj. in opp. to my 11th house sun. what could that mean? saturn rules my 7th house, uranus my 8th, moon my 1st, is it possible that this transit has to do with my wish to become mother, or the health of my parents? obviously it will also have to do with my marriage (saturn as ruler of 7th coming from 3rd) … or maybe all at the same time?

    i have a feeling, as if many things could come up in a parallel way. what do you think? thank you 1000 times for answering.

    best wishes

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn through your 5th could indicate more responsibilities involving children (a possible pregnancy) or it could mean restrictions around having children. Saturn conjuncting Moon/Uranus indicates limits on your emotional freedom and/or expression. It focuses your emotional need to get what you want (5th House) and, even if you do get what you want, you’ll probably feel that you had to give something up in the process. Saturn pares away everything that is not essential.

  19. Joanne says:

    I have Neptune in Scorpio in my natal 2nd house. I have Mars in Gemini in the 8th house, as well as the sun in Taurus and Venus in Taurus in the 8th house. (Libra rise/Sag moon). Can you tell me what might be in store for me when Saturn transits through Scorpio?


    • Nadia says:

      Saturn transiting through 2nd House Scorpio could change your relationship to money/security. A Saturn/Neptune conjunction could make you less concerned with possessions and interested in making do with less.

  20. Joanne says:

    Nadia: OH, Also…….saturn in aries in 7th house, natal chart.
    Thanks again,

  21. Sharadha says:

    I will have saturn in first house.. what exactly do you mean by redefining the self which I dont understand.. What exactly will happen? More responsibilities in the sense?? I will have jupiter in eighth..

    • Nadia says:

      Redefining the self=creating a stronger sense of who you are. When you think of yourself right now, what comes to mind? Whatever that is will be transformed or strengthened by a 1st House Saturn transit.

      • Sharadha says:


        Saturn has started transiting my sign. My biggest problem in my life is to get along with my husband. We keep getting into quarell mode very often and it affects the atmosphere at home. Basically he wants to be a free person and live a bachelor life and this affects me and my son. He doesnt want to get committed and dont take part in most of the domestic work/issues. I am pregnant now and I feel that my depression will take a toll on my health and the baby. He is a virgo (born 15th sep) and I am a scorpio (born 25th oct).

  22. VC says:

    Lordy . . . Saturn is moving out of my 7th where it’s been transiting my Sun. My natal Uranus (square my natal Saturn to exact degree) falls at the end of my 7th house in Scorpio at 2 degrees. So Saturn is headed for it now, then into my 8th house.

    I’ve already been dealing with Saturn on my Sun (it’s there right now, actually) opposing Uranus transiting in Aries.

    So all this Saturn/Uranus oppositions and squares are playing out in what you might expect. Some very heavy and challenging and restricting and burdensome situations, where I’m working hard to build my life — and older men are playing the central role in all respects.

    But what will Saturn bring as it goes into Scorpio . . .

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn into Scorpio in your 8th will impact your control of shared resources (emotional and financial). You may want more control over intimacy, more control over finances or you may find that your access to these things are restricted.

  23. Priya says:

    I have saturn in 7th in scorpio..I am taurus ascendant.. Can yuo please explain in which houses is saturn transtiting in my birth chart. Will it be positive or negative to me.. I am actually not so very clear with the saturn transitition..Please be kind enough to explain me..

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn will be transiting through your 7th House. It will be a significant time for you because it will be contacting your natal Saturn (your Saturn Return) which will introduce a major transition period. You’ll be evaluating what you’ve done before this transit and will decide if it fits into this new phase of your life. I can’t say if this will be positive or negative for you without seeing your chart and doing a consultation.

  24. per marshall says:

    neptune for me sits at the gate of the 2nd/3rd house in scorpio at 2 degrees. any ideas?

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn’s transit to Neptune can go either way; focusing (Saturn) your dreams (Neptune) or attempting to escape (Neptune) from the realities that transiting Saturn brings. How it shakes out will depend on how you handle your natal Neptune.

  25. Trisha says:

    Being born 10/31/54 – I have several Scorpio placements in my chart, will this Saturn transit finally bring some relief in my life. The past several years have been rough.

  26. waterdancer says:


    Thank you for such an enlightening post.

    Saturn will transit my empty 7th house. Would you presume that this is positive or negative? My natal Saturn return is ending with this new transit.

    Thank you!

    • Nadia says:

      You’re welcome.
      I really can’t presume anything without seeing your chart. “Positive or negative” depends so much on what’s happening in the rest of your chart.
      You need to look at the ruler of your 7th, where it is in your chart, if it’s getting hit by any transits/progressions and what other planets in your chart will be impacted by transiting Saturn. You say your Saturn return is ending so it will be a major transition for you. Saturn transiting the 7th can bring a major relationship with heavy responsibilities into your life or it can force you to be alone so you concentrate on responsibilities to yourself. But it really depends on the rest of your chart and how you have handled the energies of your Saturn return.

      • waterdancer says:

        Thank you Nadia!

        I will study this further, and thank you for responding.

        I just had a baby a couple of months ago. This IS a major relationship change.

        Pulling out my books an charts now….

  27. RockBottom says:

    Dear Nadia,
    I don’t know much about astrology but I’ve begin to listen to podcast lately. My sun/moon is in 1 & 3 degrees libra, ascendent is in 16′ Aries, these past 2 years have been worst then hell for me. I’ve lost everything durring this Libra saturn transit and currently facing the uranus effects as well. Went from financial independent that some might dreams of to jobless and barely makes ends meet for a year something now. Money is not important to me so I could care less, but the relationship sectors is what’s crushing my soul and make me feel like such a loser with an on off relationship(went into seclusion from the world) as I can’t seem to let an ex go on my mind. With this last unexpected brakes-up in march and final, it strips the last hope of happiness or the most important thing I have left in my life. I really have no one or anything left in my life that is of an importance except myself, so in Oct when saturn goes into scorpio, my 2nd house of (sun/moon -libra), 8th house in aries ascend, what can I expect to have happen because there are nothing left in my life for saturn to take away or contract. Also would things lighten up from now till Oct 15 in my sector of relations or work?
    Thank you in advance for your time if you can answer me.

  28. Lori says:

    Okay…I am really nervous about this. I am a double Aries. I have Neptune in Scorpio in the 8th House. Between Uranus in Aries now and Saturn going into Scorpio next….I am very nervous. I need someone else’s insight…PLEASE.

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn moving into your 8th House could strengthen your boundaries (how much you share or let others in) by confronting you with some illusions (Neptune) you might have about intimacy. If you give too much to others, for example, or depend too much on others, this transit will put the brakes on that.

      • Cathy says:

        Lori and Nadia,
        I too am a double Aries w/ Neptune in Scorpio. Venus in Pisces- illusions!!!!! Thankfully the Pluto/Uranus square and Venus Rx have helped me see the light already with a certain few. Uranus in Aries is pretty cool too- expect the unexpected! Also- numerologically: I’m in a 9 year cycle with many endings happening with some toxic family members- getting away from them, new residence, new car, even a death in the family, so far…. The best advise I can share with you, Lori, is step into your personal power! I have nothing in Leo, so this Merc Rx in Leo could be quite interesting. I’m excited for this LONG over-do change in my life of putting me first- finally! Good luck Lori! 😉

  29. RockBottom says:

    From everything that I’ve read online, about not being able to set bounderies, Jealousy, denial, manipulating & controlling tactics in trying to keep someone as her actions clearly states the love that we have together is over. Uranus strike, Saturn affects who knows but 3 days right after that libra full moon it’s over and I have to say things/life have never been so clear for me. I feel like an 18 years old who’ve just turn 80 over night and I have to admit this saturn transit have made me mature alot and change my way of thinking so much in life, love, finance, and relationship in general. I guess what I’m saying is let it comes, we all need to mature in certain areas of our lives sooner or later folks so don’t worries. Dramatic, hurtful and lonely cause of isolation and being stuck yes, but f..kkk it we’ll never learn or can take full advantage of the next beautiful things that comes to us in the future. All I can say is, If my thinking and values about life 2 years ago was like anything close to the present, I would have a few millions and are happily marry now. So take actions in your life folks, before all these planets do it for you through the actions of others and turn ur life upside down. From a simple guy who just takes each new day as it comes to someone who now knows exactly what he wants/desire and need in life, I guess saturn did teach me a thing or 2. Still waiting for your input Nadia and thank you again for your time in writing these blogs.

    • Nadia says:

      Thanks for your comments. However, the input you are waiting for would require me to do an analysis of your chart. If you’d like to order a consultation, please check out my Astrology Reports page.

  30. RockBottom says:

    Oh I understand Nadia, but can you spread lights to some of us who have went through the recent saturn transit that have nothing left for saturn to contracts or take away when it goes to scorpio? What can we expect in general as saturn usually takes things or people away and make us stands on our own 2 feet.
    Thank you.

    • Nadia says:

      When Saturn takes away everything you can start building something new. The purpose of a Saturn transit is to narrow your focus to the essentials. So whatever you are left with (even if that’s just your desire for self-awareness) is what you focus on. That’s what you need to build. Saturn in Scorpio can bring tremendous power/influence/responsibility if you are focused in the right direction.

  31. Martha says:

    I have lost everything and came up now to deal with sexual abuse that I was not aware before after Saturn passing from my 12th house during the last 6 years. I am meditating since 2010 everyday for more than hour an a half with Maum Meditation method that it’s has been a powerful healing to me.
    Saturn will enter into my first house on August where my sun in Scorpio is in conjuction with Mercury. I am 60 ( 10/25/1951 6:03 AM Sant Turce Puerto Rico)and would like to know if this will be the right time to come up with my legacy to the Hispanic community in creating wealth and health, can you explain to me how I should bring that up to the world? Thank you and many blessings to you, Martha

    • Martha says:

      Hi Nadia,
      Having Saturn leaving my 12th house and enteringon August into the first house where I have my Sun and Mercury in conjuntions will mean that I will be more focused in my work and my health? What about new job or a new opprotunity?

      • Nadia says:

        Transiting Saturn into your first can mean more responsibility. Not necessarily to do with health, but it could mean a new job. New respect for you because of this increased responsibility.

  32. kjc says:

    what is your point of view on how this might play out for someone who have their sun & chiron in early degrees taurus (1’45” and 5’38”), which then will be immedietly opposed by the time saturn moves into scorpio this year? (and therefore be in their solar 7th house)? is saturn really the planet of (relationship) karma and so might give these people a “lesson” if they treated other people badly in the past? thank you for your insight?

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn is the planet of karma, not just relationship karma. The “lessons” it teaches are related to taking responsibility for your actions.

  33. Banjiero says:

    Greetings everyone. Enjoying learning about all these different transits and personal comments. So then Nadia, when Saturn moves into the Scorpio part of my 6th house this October (which will also be my Saturn return, with natal trines to my 10th house Piscean Sun and 11th house Mercury and Venus in Pisces as well), all your above points re my losing “something,” then focusing on what’s left and making that work for me as well as identifying any negative controlling energies or fears will be occurring in the areas of my health/daily work life/limitations and where I am liable to suffer? And very soon now Saturn will be conjuncting my 6th house Neptune in Libra (at 27°) with natal trines both to my 1st house Jupiter in Gemini and to my 10th house Piscean Sun along with a square to my 3rd house Uranus in Cancer before it moves on to Scorpio so I should also be aware of possible illusions in this area as well? (My natal Neptune and Saturn are 10° apart.) Any additional suggestions of other things I should be watchful for?

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn’s transit sounds pretty positive for you because of all the trines it will be making to your Sun, Mercury and Venus. You could experience this as a stabilizing influence. Increased discipline (from your work/health). Mind you, you could experience an increased work-load as well but the trines will help you incorporate this into your life. The impact of a transit is influenced by the aspects it makes to your planets.

      • Banjiero says:

        Thank you Nadia. That was very encouraging news. Just what I needed to hear right now. Since May began I’ve been rendered completely useless with a pinched nerve in my back but hopefully will be able to get mobile again fairly soon (that Gem ascendant of mine).

        How should I be interpreting transiting Neptune’s (currently at 3°2’36” Pisces) aspects to my 10th house Sun at 1°28′ Pisces? Neptune was exactly conjunct to my Sun this past March 14th and will do a repeat of this on Sept. 4th and will be exactly conjunct yet again next year on Jan. 14th due to Neptune’s back and forth movement. What degree of orb should I be using both for transiting Neptune and Chiron as well (currently at 9°23’59” Pisces)? I’m asking because of my natal Venus being at 6°42′ Pisces and my natal Mercury being at 16°7′ Pisces, and they’re both in my 11th house.

        • Nadia says:

          Orbs for transiting Neptune: fairly large because it’s such a major transit. 4-5 degrees. Transiting Chiron…a bit tighter (2-3 degrees).

  34. john says:

    Saturn will travel through my 11th and 12th in Scorpio and I also got Jupiter in Scorpio in the 11th

    what will this bring to me? what`s the karmic lesson?

  35. christy says:

    Interesting. I’m a Leo with a cancer ASC and Mars, Venus, Pluto conjunction in Libra in the fourth. Needless to say, Father Saturn will be living in my 5th house with Uranus for the next couple of years. While in Libra, I’ve had to face Saturn over and over again ( back and fourth) now that he’s finally moving on, I’m a little intrigued about the next chapter. Especially, since he’ll be in my house. I know there could be restrictions with children or having them but my Uranus in the 5th in Scorpio, so I’ve always looked at children as restriction/ responsibility. This is why I’ve taught them to be independent. Furthermore, I doubt very seriously I will have anymore children. I’m honestly not interested. My childrn are all teenager and my focus is career at this point. As far as my creativity, I’ve always been very deep and forward thinking. Able to see what others can’t (with assistance from sun, mercury and Saturn conjunct in the 3rd in Leo/ Virgo). My question is what will Saturn’s transit in my 5th wake up and how should I work with it?


    • Nadia says:

      Saturn in your 5th can help you focus your creative goals. Creative -types (like yourself) find that they can accomplish a lot during 5th House Saturn transits but you may have to deal with some interests/possibilities being excluded (so you can focus on what matters). How to work with it? If you start to doubt yourself or feel under-appreciated (which can happen with this transit), dig in and work harder. This transit is about solidifying your personal, creative power.

  36. Lindsey says:

    Hi Nadia.. Pretty awesome that you have been generous enough to reply to all your avid readers. I have Saturn transiting my 8th in this upcoming transit. I am Libra sun in the 7th, Leo moon & Aries ASC. I have mercury in scorpio too..20 degree. I am a very novice astrologer & find this stuff both fascinating & inspiring.. Any general themes I should be looking too to make the most out of this Saturn transit?

    Thanks in advance!

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn transit in the 8th=issues with boundaries. So, solidifying/transforming existing boundaries. Also, keep an eye on joint expenses, taxes, debts, etc. Saturn can pull up some financial responsibilities in these areas.

  37. Madison says:

    I’m confused I am a cancer rising but my fifth house is intercepted with Libra and Scorpio. So does Saturn stay in my fifth house longer? I also have Jupiter and Venus in Scorpio does this possibly mean a new relationship and maybe a serious one?

    • Nadia says:

      Yes, Saturn will be in your 5th House until it passes the cusp (edge) of the 6th House. If you have your chart in front of you, you should be able to see the degree of Scorpio where the 6th House cusp lies. Once it passes this degree, it’s out of your 5th. Saturn crossing your 5th House Jupiter and Venus could manifest as a serious relationship, but it could also show up as restrictions on a potential relationship. Depends on the rest of your chart.

  38. Madison says:

    Thanks Nadia! I guess we will see what happens!

  39. Canaqua says:

    Saturn is sitting exact square my12th house sun at this very moment, from my 3rd house. It has been a tiring time energy wise for me… feels like I have worked and worked and gotten nowhere… which I know is only a feeling, actually I have conqured my greatest fears… ‘Standing up to people and taking my power back’. I have worked so hard for the last 8 – 9 years that I refuse to let the power of planetry aspects scare me… if Saturn wants to teach me, I am willing to learn. The planet that gets me the most is Neptune, and Saturn is going to hit that dead on as my natal Neptune is 0 deg. of Scorpio on the cusp of my 4th house… I have no idea what to expect. As transit Neptune is making it’s way through my 7th and making oppisition to natal venus and pluto 1st house at the same time…. OH Dear! What’s an artist to do, when Neptune keeps me so busy…

  40. Seth says:

    I am Sag/Taurus rising. I have Neptune in Scorpio in 7th house in my natal chart. How might Saturn transit in Scorpio impact me?
    Thank you!

    • Nadia says:

      This transit might force you to confront any illusions you have about relationships. You’ll definitely be compelled to strengthen your boundaries when it comes to getting romantically involved.

  41. Jenny says:

    What are your thoughts on the effects of this transit on a gobal scale? I’m thinking of all the corruption in governments, financial and business sectors all over the world. Surely there will be some moving and shaking when the lord of karma travels the underworld where the corruption is more or less hidden away.

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn in Scorpio means focused power. I think certain people in positions of power will do very well, even if they are corrupt. But it also means taking responsibility for your power so there will be consequences down the road (not right away though…Saturn in Scorpio does not act quickly). Those that are ready to work hard, behind the scenes, will probably climb very high.

  42. Dorrell Buchanan says:

    I have my sun, moon, and venus all in Libra, so I have been dealing with saturn since 2009, but I also have Saturn in Scorpio in the 1st House, so what effects will I endure when Saturn moves out of libra in october?

    • Nadia says:

      You’ll experience your Saturn Return which is a major turning point. You’ll be faced with what you’ve done so far and given an opportunity to take stock. You can decide what ideals/dreams/behaviors/jobs, etc. are worth pursuing and what you should let go of.

  43. barbara says:

    My son has moon in scorpio in the 11 house
    My daughter has moon in scorpio in the 11 house
    I have scorpio on the 8th house cusp with the south node in the house
    Since the moon is the mother should I be planning for the end of my life

    • Nadia says:

      SN in the 8th, receiving a transit of Saturn, can indicate an ending. But it could be an ending of so many different things. 8th House covers joint finances, inheritances, intimacy and psychological issues. Chances are this will involve some past life issues (SN) being revived so you can deal with them. You need to look at where Pluto (ruler of Scorpio) is in your chart for more information. For your children, they might experience this as you having increased responsibilities.

  44. Opal says:

    I am about to have my second saturn return. My sun and saturn in 12th house.I have already experienced much financial loss..Lost my career because of age and frequent prior moves. I am somewhat concerned as I had my son in Jan 1986 and lost my mom a few weeks later,this after going through several years of financial hardship. Can I expect more of this to come?. emotionally 1986 one of the most difficult time of my “rocky road” life.

    • Nadia says:

      I’m sorry to read about your difficulties. Having planets in the 12th House can be stressful because this house is about letting go. So it often feels as if we are compelled to let go of so many things. I can’t say exactly what’s coming up for you without seeing your chart. What I can say about a 2nd Saturn return in your 12th House is that some endings will happen. But these could include psychological endings, ego attachments (Sun) and old fears (Saturn). Look to see what aspects your natal Sun and Saturn are making for more information.

  45. Opal says:

    Oh..I forgot to say that my sun and saturn in scorpio in 12th house. Sag venus and moon 1st house.

  46. Adrienne says:

    Saturn in Scorpio this year will be my first Saturn return in my 2nd house. My natal Saturn is also retrograde and opposes my Mercury, Venus and Mars in Taurus. Can you give me any idea of what I can come to expect in the months to come based on this info? Thank you for any advice you can provide : )

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn return in your 2nd House=evaluation of how you earn your money and if your needs are being met. Opposing Mercury/Venus/Mars…you won’t get everything you want (especially in the romance/money department) so you’ll need to re-define what you’re worth. Focus on what is possible (there will be something that’s achievable but you’ll have to work hard for it). Issues may involve getting paid what you’re worth and self-esteem in relationships.

  47. Hannah says:

    The only Scorpio I have in my chart is Pluto in Scorpio. Does this mean this transit will not effect me very much?

    • Nadia says:

      It will affect you when Saturn passes over your Pluto. This will be a redefinition of your power, in whatever house Pluto is in.

  48. tay says:

    My sun is in Taurus but my uranus is in Scorpio…how does this affect me

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn will put restrictions on your purpose/ego (Sun) while forcing you to make structured (Saturn) changes (Uranus).

  49. Stellar says:

    Hello to all, I was wondering if anyone had any input :
    Saturn will soon be transiting my 12th house Scorpio,
    I have 4 conjunctions here which consist of Uranus,mercury,
    Mars,ascendant , sun and Venus. My natal Saturn placement is
    8th house cancer. I recently learned of how rare and difficult having
    So many planets in the 12th can be and now have no clue as to what
    To expect during saturns pass. I also have no planet earth in my chart
    And 6 water, Jupiter is in 4th house Pisces. Any feedback is greatly

    • Stellar says:

      And one more part of the equation, north node will
      Conjunct Saturn September 2013 by transit
      in the middle of this stellium.
      Thanks again.

    • Nadia says:

      Transiting Saturn through your 12th House planets can help you define hidden or unconscious issues. You’ll certainly become more aware of these planets and there’s usually an ending involved with a 12th House Saturn transit (letting of something that’s no longer viable in your life).

  50. George says:

    hello! :)
    I am very concern about what is going to happen, because Saturn will be transiting through my 2th house. I also have Pluto in Scorpio at 21 degree. I already felt my Pluto. My family lost almost everything, even the house. So, please tell me, what can I expect?

    I am sorry about my English. :)

    I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    • Nadia says:

      I can’t tell you what to expect without doing a full analysis of your chart. A I can say is that Saturn through the 2nd will restrict and define your finances and emotional needs.

  51. Elyse says:

    Thanks so much for your insights re: Saturn transit Scorpio. I have been filled with dread & losses during my long ride w/Saturn transiting native Saturn conjunct Neptune in my 12th Libra house. But I feel forged in a crucible and now look forward to rising from the ashes as the great task master transits my transformative Scorpio Ascend. Can I expect an especially powerful tranist b/c of the Ascend. placement? Also, will my native Pluto in Leo MC have a magnifying effect?

    • Nadia says:

      Yes, Saturn over your Scorpio AC will be quite powerful. A focused transformation of your identity. A re-birth. You’ll feel the transit to Pluto on your Leo MC when Saturn squares it. It will magnify, but it will be a magnification of tremendous power struggles between your identity and ambitions/external authority.

  52. CafeFTP says:

    Saturn return on Ascendant and will conjunct Venus and Mercury in first house. How will the mutual reception of Pluto in Capricorn affect? Seems like a lot. Looking to finally publish that book. No planets in 3rd house.

  53. CW says:

    Scorpio straddles my 8th and 9th putting Saturn entering my 8th this Fall. Any thoughts, words of wisdom or other? Thanks!

    • Nadia says:

      Watch for a definition of shared finances (taxes, debts, your partner’s finances). With Saturn, “definition” usually involves restriction so there might be less money/more debt BUT you’ll also have the discipline and resources to come up with effective ways to deal with it. This is the transit that can help you wipe out your debts, once and for all. But it will be through work and planning, not a windfall. Alternative, psychological issues around boundaries and intimacy (sex included) will come into focus.

  54. Iva says:

    Hi Nadia, love your site. I’m convinced that it’s Saturn in Libra that has caused havoc wiht people’s realtionships for a while. I’m gping through my first Saturn return, which has been a major upheaval. I’m revamping my life from scratch. Pluto is also transiting through my 7th house. After Saturn conjucts my natal Saturn it will immidiately conjunct my natal Pluto. What does this mean? Finally I have moon in Scorpio, what will Saturn’s transit through Scorpio mean for me?

    Thanks in adavnce!

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn transiting Saturn/Pluto is defining your identity/dreams/future path and personal power all at once. What’s realistic and what do you have to let go of? Saturn over your Scorpio Moon will continue to define your personal power, but on an emotional level. Limitations will push you to focus on issues involving honesty and intimacy in relationships.

  55. Objuan says:

    Saturn makes its first to my doorstep in October, happy birthday to me-it hits my Neptune/Sun Conj.. I’m late October scorpio. Then it comes around for that lovely Saturn return a few years later when it hits my Saturn/Venus conjunction in Scorpio. What was it that Bette Davis said in “All about Eve”–“Fasten your seatbelts its going to a bumpy ride…” My baggage will definitely be shifting in the overhead compartment. Wish me luck folks, say a prayer, light a candel, throw the runes…whatever you can do to send good karma my way.

    I’m going call this transit “the Bobby McGee”–freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn hitting your Sun/Neptune will definitely define your reality. It’s always interesting when it hits natal Neptune because it can cause disillusionment OR it can help you manifest your dreams (as long as you’re disciplined about making them happen).

  56. Susan says:

    Hi, I am 11/06/49. 23 degrees Aquarius rising.
    The last decade has already been devastating.
    Do I have anything to look forward to, or will it just be more of the same or worse, when Saturn enters Scorpio?
    I have already lost everything, nursed a parent to end of life and have two major health issues.
    Have tried to find the best in the worst of times, and am grateful for anything I do have.
    Thanks for any insights!

    • Nadia says:

      Hi Susan…if you’d like your chart analyzed, please see my Astrology Reports page for a consultation.


      • Suzen says:

        Not sure where to put my date of birth, place, time etc. when I order a report.

  57. Anonymous says:

    I have just discovered your website while searching for this exact transit. I love the picture…free falling sounds very true. And I like what Objusn said about “nothing left to lose”. That is the attitude I will have to have as Saturn transits first my Neptune/Mars conk in my 12th, then my NN. As it rides over my 22 degree Sun and then crosses over my Asc, I may not even recognize myself!

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn over your NN can bring you face to face with your destiny; that’s what will trigger the transformation of your identity (Saturn over your Sun and AC).

  58. Anonymous says:

    My KindleFire keyboard wrote “conk”….I meant “Neptune/Mars CONJUNCT ” : )

  59. JILL BEURSKEN says:

    My birthday is right on the cusp. 10/23/58. I was so looking forward to saying goodbye to Saturn but will I still be dealing with it since I am on the cusp?!

  60. arly says:

    Sun, Neptune in Scorpio in my ninth and MC, Mercury in Scorpio in my tenth. What input can you give on Saturn return. Thanks much.

    • Nadia says:

      If you’re asking about your Saturn Return you need to tell me the sign/house of your natal Saturn.

      • arly says:


        My natal Saturn is in Sagitarius/11th house

        Thanks much

        • arly says:

          Oh and North Node in Scorpio is also in my ninth house.

        • Nadia says:

          If your Saturn is in Sag, it will be a few years yet before your Saturn Return. But when it happens you’ll experience a turning point regarding your friends, your status in the group and your public image. Saturn in the 11th can restrict the number of friends you have and make the friends you do have loyal and lifelong. So you might have to deal with ending certain friendships that no longer support your or at least evaluating the ones you do have.

          • arly says:

            Hi Nadia:

            So I’m not affected bySat. entering Scorpio Oct. 5th since my natal saturn is in Sag?

          • Nadia says:

            You will be affected but in your original comment you asked about Saturn Return. Saturn Return is when transiting Saturn crosses over your natal Saturn. This will not happen for a a few years (until transiting Saturn enters Sag). But when transiting Saturn in Scorpio passes over your Sun/Neptune in Scorpio you might be confronted with realities about your goals in life. What are doing to make them happen? What are your goals and are they realistic. This are the issues that Saturn’s transit of Scorpio will raise.

  61. Steph says:

    Can one expect good to come out of this with both Saturn and Pluto in Scorpio?

    • Nadia says:

      There’s always potential for good to come out of any transit. What you make of it totally depends on you.

  62. Jill says:

    I’m on the cusp of libra and scorpio

    • Nadia says:

      I’m assuming you’re concerned about Saturn hitting your Sun at some point? If you have Sun in Scorpio then yes, you will still be dealing with this Saturn transit.

  63. suzanne says:

    saturn in scorpio will be transiting my 1st house, conjunct with n.node and uranus. What should i expect over the next few years?

    • Nadia says:

      Your North Node potentials will be activated. As to what those are, check your South Node for a description of behaviors/habits that hold you back. NN is the opposite of these.

  64. Debbie says:

    Am much clearer now after reading this about what Saturn in Scorpio means. Am a Libra (born 5th Oct) with Cancer rising, Pisces moon and Venus and North Node in Scorpio. Since 2009 work has been tough but more high -profile and with a promotion. Also, am slated to get married in Nov. Will be v grateful to learn what Saturn in Scorpio could hold for me.

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn transiting over your Venus and NN could indicate your marriage (your destiny…North Node….to have a committed relationship….Saturn over Venus). More information will be found in the house position of your Venus/NN but the North potentials will be activated. Focusing (Saturn) the transformative power (Scorpio) of your destiny. Saturn over Venus can feel a bit heavy, but it all depends on how you handle responsibility.

  65. Cassandra says:

    My natal Saturn is retrograde in Scorpio (4th house). Any thoughts as to how this period could manifest being that I have the retrograde planet and it is my Saturn Return?

    • Nadia says:

      Buried/past issues with parents (Saturn Rx in 4th House) could emerge w/your Saturn return. Watch for issues around your responsibilities to your parents, especially if you haven’t been confronting them.

  66. B. says:

    Virgo sun, Aquarius moon, Aquarius rising, Saturn in libra, Venus in Scorpio.
    My 2nd Saturn Return this coming fall…..
    Any insight on Saturn Return for me with Saturn going into Scorpio?

  67. Ahauchata says:

    Thank you for your insight! On this end, Saturn will be entering my 5th house (Scorpio) Neptune was in my 5th house at my birth, so on this end I am feeling a quiet period hoping so. Already been through my first Saturn Return and it was a doozy (Saturn in 9th House Pisces, Rx) I hold the highest respect for this planet!

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn crossing over your 5th House Neptune could help you manifest some creative/romantic dreams and force you to let go of others. Saturn over Neptune is always about reality vs. fantasy.

  68. Janna Maggiio says:

    Saturn is going to transit my IC at 2’21 degrees Scorpio and Pluto @ 4’14 degrees Scorpio in 4th House.

    My asc is in Leo and I feel as I have been going through a lot of downfalls already latelt, this Saturn transit passing over my IC and n. Pluto in 4th doesnt make me too optimistic.

    What can I expect and how would I use this energy wisely?

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn over the IC can bring more responsibilities involving home, family and ageing parents. It’s also about putting down roots (possibly relocating somewhere you plan on living for many years). Returning home. But once Saturn passes over your IC things should start to get easier because it will be moving into the upper quadrant of your chart which shifts your focus from inner work to making your mark on the external world. Best way to use this energy is to accept whatever responsibilities Saturn brings you. It will asking you to do the work involving home and family, so get those issues cleared up and then you can move forward with your own agenda.

  69. Nina says:

    What about when Saturn OPPOSES NN or conjuncts SN for that matter? Will Saturn over my SN bring me face to face with my past…and challenge by opposition my destiny???? Past and destiny being the two sides of the same coin, so to speak. What kind of an activation of the SN potential can I expect, as it takes place in the 7th house and then moves to hit a close conjunct of Mercury and Neptune in the 8th?

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn over your SN (especially in your 7th house) can bring up a heavy past-life relationship. Lots of karmic business to deal with. Issues might include what you owe someone or what they owe you.

  70. Anon says:

    What kind of changes might you say I might be able to look for with the transiting of saturn into scorpio if I am a sun/scorpio with a natal of saturn/libra and a uranus/scorpio? What kind of changes from a saturn/scorpio for a natal sun/scorpio and a uranus/scorpio?

    Also, would there be more of an effect with the transition of saturn in scorpio considering my sun/scorpio and uranus/scorpio or with saturns return in my natal saturn/libra?

    • Nadia says:

      Not sure if your Sun and Uranus are conjunct in Scorpio, but transiting Saturn over your Sun would define the power of your goals through (possible) extra work and responsibility. At the same time, you might gain more authority. But there’s also the risk of overwork. Saturn over your Uranus in Scorpio could make you feel limited but it can also be a constructive time for focused changes. But it really depends on what houses your Sun and Uranus are in.

      The effect of your Saturn Return and Saturn’s transit over your Sun and Uranus will be equally potent, just in different ways.

      • Anon says:

        Hi Nadia,

        Thank you for this info I also meant to say it before. Thank you again!!

        To top off the question and in response to your response what if my sun is 13 degress in scorpio in the eigth house and uranus is 29 degress in scorpio in the ninth house.

        Also, if my sun and uranus are not conjoining would it be better if they were? How would that change the situation?

        Any other feedback would be greatly appreciated and I thank you for your time!!!

        • Nadia says:

          It doesn’t make it better or worse if your Sun and Uranus are conjunct or not. It just means Saturn’s impact on one would be combined with the other. If they are in different houses, you’ll feel Saturn’s impact in those different areas of your life.

  71. wethr70 says:

    Hi everybody,

    I need some hints about the following issue:

    1. natal saturn is in the natal 11th (Taurus)
    2. natal mars, venus and jupiter in natal 5th (scorpio)
    3. saturn opposes all three (mars conj venus and venus conj jupiter)

    What do I have to expect?

    (I am already divorced from my 1st and seperated from my 2nd husband and no current relationship -so nothing to lose in that direction)

    Please make comments.

    Thank you…

  72. L.G. says:

    Thank you for this site – My question –>> Can you give me insight into what may be expected to evolve for an individual who is up against murder charges with transit Saturn about to hit his natal Sun (8 degr Scorp.) Pluto (7 degr Scorp) conjunction? Venus at 13 degr Scorpio)He also will have Saturn sq his natal mars at 13 degr of Aquar. which is natal sq his Venus and wide sq to his Sun/Pluto conj. The transit of Saturn will have a 3 time hit of 7-8 degree Scorpio from Jan 2013 to Sept 2013. Saturn will transit the 13 degr point only in Oct 2013.
    Unfortunately no birth time avail. Do you think a solar chart or flat chart (Aries rising) would be just as accurate? Thank you so much for your insite.

    • Nadia says:

      Difficult to say without analyzing his chart (especially with no birth time). But Saturn over his Sun/Pluto is about consequences and responsibility. Saturn square his Mars will be a restriction on his actions.
      You also need to look at all the other transits hitting his chart, plus his progressed planet. Analyzing one transit in isolation cannot tell the whole story.
      A Solar Chart will give some insight into the general energies that will be hitting him but, ultimately, will not be as accurate as a chart with his birth time.

  73. Daniela says:

    I am a libra sun/moon in libra/pisces rising 3rd decan and I have more than 4 planets in scorpio in my birth chart ( mercury, venus, jupiter, pluto, north node etc..) and aspects between pluto and saturn, I’m guessing this transit will affect me right? but i was wondering if it would be just as powerful as saturn in libra, being a libra sun, it was really tough but very rewarding at the end though. Just wondering 😉
    Good article by the way.

    • Nadia says:

      Yes, transiting Saturn will define your communication, relationship needs, destiny, personal power and drive for expansion.
      It will be just as powerful as when it hit your Sun in Libra.

  74. laura says:

    born 4/11/55 @756am in NY Peekskill, My saturn is scorpio and in the 6 th house. I understand saturn is returning to scorpio. How will this affect me

  75. Queenfluff says:

    Hi Nadia!

    What would be the main focus of Saturn transiting over the 12th house? I am guessing psychological issues which makes sense because I am now currently facing anxiety and depression issues which I believe I have hidden for a long time (or repressed). Even though Saturn just starting moving forward again in Libra – I am already feeling/starting to deal with my “closet” issues. My 12th starts at 3 degrees Scorpio – I also have Saturn in Taurus at 8 degrees in my sixth so I am coming on my Saturn/Saturn opposition (which I heard varying opinions about but heard it can be a good midlife transit after all the bad ones). My Ascendant is at 23 degrees Scorpio with Neptune conjunct within 3 degrees. Thanks for the info above on Saturn transit conjunct Neptune and Ascendant – I will try to be prepared for mine even though it won’t happen for a few years. Anything else I should expect?

    • Nadia says:

      12th House is definitely psychological issues. Subconscious, hidden issues. Saturn through the 12th can also mean a significant ending to a phase of your life.

  76. Shay says:

    Hi Nadia

    I like your explanation. Saturn will be going into my 2nd house where it will go over my stellium (pluto, venus Rx, mercury Rx and sun). What can I expect?

    • Nadia says:

      A re-definition of your financial and emotional security. Possibly less money coming in but you’ll also figure out ways to save and make do with what you have.

  77. Empress says:

    Greetings… Thank you for this wonderful information!

    Wanted to know what like am up against…Venus Sun Moon and Uranus all in Scorpio.

    Sun-8th-19 deg
    Moon-9th-25 deg
    Uranus-8th-12 deg
    Venus- 8th-2deg

    Wondering how in the world I will make it through this transit.

    Saturn opposition Asc. (Pisces ..yes triple water ) 5/01 deg.
    Moon sq Saturn 3/50 deg
    Jupiter Sextile Saturn 5/51
    Venus SextileSaturn 2/17 deg
    Mercury Sq Saturn 3/20 Deg

    Please can you help a sister out???

    • Nadia says:

      Well, you’re asking me to analyze your chart which I don’t do for free. Please check out my Astrology Reports page if you’d like to order a consultation.

  78. lp says:

    i’m trying desperately to understand this. i am a libra (9-24-69) with scorpio rising. i have sun, mercury, jupiter AND uranus in libra and was very much looking forward to saturn leaving libra only to realize that it will now be in my ascendant. i also have neptune in scorpio in my natal chart (and my natal saturn’s in taurus but i’m not sure if that’s relevant).

    can you please help me understand what i may need to know about the effect of a saturn transit on one’s rising sign vs. sun sign? lie to me if you have to, i’m totally depleted from saturn in libra. praying it will be vastly different. positive, even.

    • lp says:

      p.s. 1 degree libra (sun) and 1 degree scorpio (ascendant). also, the aforementioned saturn in taurus is in my 7th house.

      • Nadia says:

        So a possible conflict between personal and relationship responsibilities (when Saturn transits Scorpio).

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn over you AC can mean different things, depending on what else is happening in your chart. Could mean more responsibility but also more discipline. Your natal Saturn in Taurus is definitely relevant because during Saturn’s transit of Scorpio it will oppose your natal Saturn. Depending on what house natal Saturn is in (6th or 7th) you could feel torn between responsibilities in two areas of your life.

  79. susan says:

    this is a great article! I was just thinking it would be interesting to read something into the ramifications for what it could mean if u have a planet in scorpio (for ex i am a scorpio and have mercury and neptune in scorpio, i have scorpio in my 8th house at 20 degrees, etc.) this is a perfect thought to that! i was just talking to a friend who has saturn in aquarius and was asking if she would feel it too, since it is saturn. wasnt sure.

  80. Georges says:

    Thank you for the analysis. I’m feeling a confused sense of both trepidation and anticipation about this transit as I have Sun, Venus, Mercury and Neptune in Scorpio. And to add to this jolly little mix will be Pluto conjunct my Capricorn ascendant. Yikes.

    • Georges says:

      I should add that my sun is in the 10th.

    • Nadia says:

      Lots of heavy-duty responsibility here. Pluto over your AC brings a lifestyle transformation but also (possible) increased authority. Saturn over your Sun (in the 10th) can be a career high point (depending on the work you’ve put into it over the past few years). Your anticipation is justified because these two transits mean increased respect for you but it will feel quite heavy at times (more work, etc).

  81. RAE says:

    Good article on saturn in scorpio! I’m 28 degrees Aquarius ascendent , 20 degree 8th house libra sun and 23 degree Cap moon. It’s been a horrible couple of years financially. Can you tell me if you think things will ease up a little when Saturn eases up off of my sun and moves into Scorpio but is still in my 8th house……. Many thanks in advance

    • Nadia says:

      The pressure will feel less intense because restrictions (Saturn) will be lifted from your goals (Sun). But it’s impossible for me to say more than that because I have no idea what aspects transiting Saturn will be making to your other planets. The energy will shift from re-balancing your finances (Libra) to transforming (Scorpio) what you have left.

      • RAE says:

        You are really very generous to take the time to answer everyones questions. Thanks for answering mine! It is much appreciated.

        • Nadia says:

          I figure the more I put into this blog and the community, the more it will grow. It’s a two way street.

  82. Ginger Snow says:

    Hello Nadia,

    Thank you for your insightful answers.

    I have Moon in Scorpio (5 degrees 28′ – in house 7 – direct) any comments about this placement? I have Libra in my 7th house in the last two years have been very painful in terms of relationships. I would be grateful for any insight you might have.

    • Nadia says:

      Transiting Saturn through the 7th can be rough on relationships. When Saturn moves from Libra to Scorpio you might feel a shift from re-balancing (what they have to give you versus what you want) to a focus on your deeper needs. A move from objective awareness of others to subjective awareness of your personal power in relationships. Saturn over your Moon will put your needs/emotions into sharp focus; you’ll become very aware of what’s missing (emotionally), who can provide you with the deep intimacy you crave and who cannot.

  83. SHIPRA says:

    very informative indeed…Nadia I am Scorpio ASCENDENT and have SUN,MERCURY,MARS and NEPTUNE in the 1st house scorpio and my SATURN+MOON is in 10th house Leo and i am very worried what will happen during this transit for almost 2 long years :(

    • Nadia says:

      Transformation of your identity/physical image (Ascendent) along with clarification of your purpose (Sun), ideas (Mercury), desires (Mars) and dreams (Neptune). Square Saturn/Moon in 10th House…career frustrations/delays. Lots of stop and go energy (especially when Saturn hits your Mars).

  84. Ina says:

    Hey Nadia, Saturn will be hitting my
    12th house in Scorpio, then Mars (Scorpio) square
    Venus conj. NN (Leo 9th House), then my Scorpio
    Asc conj. Uranus … I am first time pregnant right
    now, about to give birth beginning of Jan…
    Any ideas about the Saturn Transit effecting
    this issue? Many thanks in advance!

    • Nadia says:

      Sorry, I can’t comment without more information on your chart.
      You need to focus on your 5th House (the house of children), any planets in it, the ruler of your 5th House and your Moon.

  85. Maggie says:

    Hi, Nadya :) I have a sun in libra and Venus, Mercury and Pluto in Scorpio, in my 4th house… What can I expect when Saturn enters Scorpio? Right now I am already going through emotional upheaval in almost all areas in my life, only losses and no gains, as if everything in my life is blocked. :(

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn through the 4th will bring up issues with parents and your past.It might include responsibilities towards one of your parents and/or establishing a solid home base for yourself.

  86. ruby says:

    Hi nadia

    I have saturn rx in scorpio in the 10th house in my natal chart. I’m quite worried about my saturn return, i’m not where i want to be professionally, can blocks and obstacles be overcome during this time?
    many thanks

  87. AS says:

    Now that Saturn will hit Scorpio, it will go in my 8th house where Moon and Pluto are, shortly it will oppose Mars at 6 Taurus and trine NN at 5 Pisces in 12H. My natal Saturn is in Capricorn with Uranus and Neptune conjunct all in 10th house. MC is in Sag, ASC is 15 pisces, Aqua Sun.

    I’m worried… What kind of a rollercoaster will it be?

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn opposite Mars can be frustrating…blocks on your energy/efforts. But trine your NN will make it easier for you to access 12th House, intuitive/spiritual energy. This will be a quiet, meditative time rather than an active time.

      • AS says:

        Another thing, on Dec 21, 2012, transiting NN will be right on my 8H Moon at 25 Scorpio and sextile 11H Cappy Venus and oppose Jupiter at 2H Taurus. And Mars will be on my Venus, trining Jupiter and sextiling Moon.

        Maybe so positive days after all, after Saturn is done opposing Mars at 6 Taurus.

  88. Kali says:

    I will have Saturn conjunct my zero degree Scorpio ascendant soon. I am in such a confused dilemma over what to do. I have all the extremely different choices involving my future…would receiving further education be a good idea? I could do that (locally)
    or leave the country for the Dominican republic? Those are the two main choices…
    I am feeling very stifled and bored w my current situation and would never really have considers education in the past but get this feeling that a structure and set discipline might be good… Been traveling alot w my husband for the past five years (w our current work) 12/19/72 3:23 am twin falls, idaho
    Thanks for any insight:)!

  89. paul says:

    Hi Nadia

    What will saturn in scorpio bring for capricorns and will any change start as soon as saturn enters scorpio?


    • Nadia says:

      Saturn in Scorpio will sextile planets in Capricorn. A Sextile is a weak aspect so it may not be felt unless you’re really paying attention. It’s positive, but you have to be aware of it and actively work with it. It’s like a weak trine. Changes will start as soon as Saturn enters Scorpio but only those with planets in the early degrees os Capricorn (0-3) will feel it right away.

  90. Veronica says:

    Hi Nadia,
    I am a Scorpio sun, moon, venus and pluto (18, 25, 27, 29 degrees) all in my 5th house. My ascendant is in Cancer at 18 degrees. My chiron is retrograde in cancer in my 1st house. My 7th house is in Capricorn, where my Saturn is as well. Do you know how Saturn in Scorpio 2012 – 2015 will influence me? Could love be in the cards? I’ve never been in love, and just the thought of a marriage or an intimate love relationship seriously scares me.

    • Nadia says:

      I can’t for sure without seeing your chart, but your love life may undergo a transformation. Saturn through your 5th House, especially over your Moon and Venus will make you want a defined relationship. If you 7th House is in Capricorn , Pluto will be transiting through it (if it hasn’t started already). This could bring an intense, life-changing relationship.

  91. Stephen says:

    I have my natal Ascendant in Scorpio as well as natal Neptune in Scorpio, First house. How will this Saturn transit affect me? I had a rough Saturn transit of my natal sun sign (Virgo, Eleventh House) just a few years ago. I’m hoping it will not be as rough.

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn over the AC can have a number of different effects, depending on the rest of your chart. But in general, it brings more responsibility and seriousness to your life.

  92. Sherry says:

    You have a great site! I’ve been a practicing astrologer for nearly 30 years, (began my studies during my first Saturn return). I am directly caught in this transiting Uranus/Pluto square with transiting Saturn in the first house. I am 6 Libra Asc with 7 Libra Sun, so currently have the Uranus opposition ( from 7th house) and Pluto (on my 4th house cusp) square Sun/Asc along with Saturn now approaching the end of my first house (conjunct 25 Libra Neptune). When Saturn enters my second house (1 degree cusp) it will activate my stellium: 2 Scorpio Mercury, 8 Scorpio Saturn (second return), and later my 20 Scorpio Venus and 26 Scorpio Moon. My life is a mess! I’m out of work and have been for a year. Finances are slim and I’m on the verge of disaster! I cannot figure out what the heck I am supposed to be doing with all of this so most days I try to put my life in the hands of fate. Not sure if this is a good thing, but beyond making effort to find a job, it doesn’t appear that there is anything else I can do. I am trying to understand what it is that I’m supposed to be learning from all of this, but no answers so far. If you could shed any light here, a few words of objective advice would be most appreciated!

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn in the 2nd will continue to restrict your finances, but it is teaching you to be disciplined about your resources. Pare down what you need to feel secure to the bare essentials. Pluto into your 4th will transform your existing home life. What you’re supposed to be learning is to live with only what you need; go back to basics, and grow from there.

      • Sherry says:

        Well, I don’t know how to pare down any further…unless I take up living in a cardboard box! Having Saturn in my 2nd house has always forced me to be frugal and cautious with money/possessions and I live very modestly. I have a feeling there is something else…and I’m not seeing what it is?

        • Nadia says:

          The 2nd house is also about inner resources; self-esteem, values, your inner needs. Since you have Saturn there already, the quality of these resources is a lifelong lesson for you. Saturn in the 2nd (natally) speaks to a “lack” in one of these areas when you were younger. Or at least a feeling that there will never be enough. Since you’re coming up on your 2nd Saturn return, it’s about what you have accomplished so far and the wisdom you’ve gained. It is a transition point where you (hopefully) incorporate the lessons of the first Saturn Return.

  93. Ana A says:

    Thank you for shedding some light with your post. I have a question regarding saturn in scorpio. I get that saturn is now leaving Libra (my sun and ascendant) and moving into scorpio. But what about those with their saturn in scorpio, should we beware? Like I said Im a libra sun/ascendant, scorp pluto conjct sun in 1st house, and even worst i have saturn conjuct mercury both in scorpio in the second house. This last couple yrs were hell with saturn in Libra and I thoght it was over, but is it?

    • sunil joshi says:

      absolutely since the day saturn entered my sun sign libra (moon sign aquarius)
      since 2009 ,suddenly hell broke on me well this began in the end of 2008 , now work situation is in worst shape i am praying and waiting for saturn to leave my house.

    • Nadia says:

      If you have Saturn in Scorpio you’ll be experiencing a Saturn Return. It’s not “beware” so much as approaching a major turning point in your life. Leaving one phase behind and entering a new one.

  94. SR says:

    5 planets in Scorpio! Scared (blankless)!! Sun 4H, Merc 5H, Ven 4H, Jup 4H, Nept 4H. I am prepared for family hell. Would I be correct?

  95. Nancy says:

    Hi Nadia, love your site. I’m glad to see your post about saturn in scorpio because I’m just about to say “don’t let the door hit you on your *&^ on your way out” to Saturn as he leaves my Sun in Libra. Bummer is, it’s going straight into my husband’s natal saturn – going exact late 2013 in the 10th house. As I glanced at his chart, Pluto is about conjunct his Ascendent late 2013 and early 2014. Looks like this one is going to be a doozy. Any insights/thoughts about pluto/ascendent conjunction and the saturn return in the 10th house? thanks.

    • Nadia says:

      Thank you. :)
      Pluto over the AC can bring a massive change in lifestyle and physical appearance. Saturn return in the 10th House can be a career high point for him if he’s on a career path that he enjoys. If not, he’ll change jobs once Saturn enters his 10th.

  96. Chris says:

    Powerful stuff, what would it mean if this transit coincides with…in my chart I have Saturn going into the 10th house starting Jan 2013 with Saturn conjunct MC? I’m a musician and I will say career stuff has been building, this year I had a song I wrote in a movie starring Greg Kinnear, Alan Arkin and Billy Crudup.

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn into the 10th can be a career peak for you. Increased respect for your work and success. But it’s strongly dependent on the work you’ve put into your career over the past few years. No “pennies from Heaven”…

  97. Chris says:

    Thank you Nadia, but forgive me, what does “no pennies from Heaven” mean? ; )

    • Nadia says:

      “Pennies from Heaven”= gifts that just fall into your lap. You don’t get those with Saturn transits.

      • Chris says:

        Ahhh, yes, thank you.

      • Chris says:

        Just to mention, I’ve been playing guitar exactly 29 years this year. Learning about Saturn’s 29 year cycle, I became intrigued with the 10th house/conjunct the MC coming soon for me.

        The long road has been full of exorbitant amount of work fine tuning the craft of songwriting, guitar playing and teaching. Recently things have become more rewarding and many work ‘seeds’ of creativity have been planted the last few years especially, and already starting to garner success.

        So, gifts coming now from many, many years of hard work and creativity, feels and sounds about right.

        Thank you so much,

  98. LS says:

    Hi Nadia,
    I love this website. Thank you for all the helpful posts – the last few years have been difficult, the information here helps to navigate through these times…
    I’m a Taurus Rising and Gemini Sun. I have Scorpio Moon at 12 degrees in my 7th House. Uranus in Scorpio at 12 Degrees. Natal Saturn is in Leo at 26 degrees.

    What can I expect as Saturn goes over my moon and transits my natal 7th house? And I have Saturn in Leo in the 4th house…

    • Nadia says:

      Thank you and you’re welcome. :)
      Saturn over your Moon will define your relationship needs. It could bring a significant, committed relationship or you might feel quite lonely (if you’re single). Even if it does bring a relationship (or you’re already in one), you’ll still feel that your needs are not being met. This is designed to force you to look at what you really need in a partnership and if you can provide it for yourself (Saturn loves self-sufficiency).

  99. LS says:

    Thank you so much for answering my query Nadia…I appreciate it :)

    I had my heart broken repeatedly while Saturn was in Libra – hope Saturn in Scorpio is a little easier.

  100. Dee says:

    Hi Nadia,
    I have Scorpio wholly (intercepted, I think the term is) in the 5th House, with Uranus Scorpio trining my late Aquarian Sun in the 9th. Any ideas on what the Saturn Scorpio transit might mean for me?

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn is about limits but it will be hitting the planet that hates limits (Uranus). In your 5th House of creativity. I would say this could help you harness creative inspiration and channel it into 9th House themes; long distance travel, education, publishing or anything that broadens your horizons. When the transit first hits you might feel a creative block. It takes a bit to get used to Saturn’s energy and settle into the new feeling of limits. As for your intercepted Scorpio…the theory is that intercepted signs represent energy that is suppressed. So this transit will activate the energy of transformation (you have 2 types of transformation here…Scorpio’s deep evolution and Uranus’ rebellious overthrow). But it will activate it the Saturn way…by making you aware of limits, first. Then you’ll have to work within those limits, but the energy will be focused.

  101. plume says:

    I have Pluto in Scorpio conj. the ascendant (same degree).
    I have long-term plans unraveling now, most important of which is going after my second college degree – I did get accepted in the University, but in order to do so, I’ll have to heavily rely on financial support from my mother for the next six years.

    I think it’s not going to work, is it?

    • Nadia says:

      honestly, I have no way of knowing unless I looked at your entire chart with all the transits and progressions. All I can say is that Saturn moving over your AC will result in a lifestyle change with more responsibility for you.

  102. Ada says:

    I’m a Virgo rising with Saturn in Scorpio, and call me crazy, but I’m very excited for my Saturn return starting this autumn! Weird, you say? Why, yes, I am! Because I can’t wait to have the heavy Lord of Change out of my house of finance, and he’s already done so much in shaking up my professional life that I finally feel I’m on my way to my true calling. Will Saturn help me find the instruction I need to pursue my true calling? Have you ever met anyone who looks forward to their Saturn return? (Although I am concerned about my parents’ health.)

    • Nadia says:

      Yes, I’ve had a few clients who have embraced their Saturn Returns. But they are far and few between. :) You’ve got the right attitude though. Saturn always helps you focus. I’m not sure what your true calling is, so I can’t speak to that. But I can say that his transit of your 2nd House will make you more self-sufficient and will show you some solid materials for building self=esteem. Money will be tight, but this transit can make you more resourceful.

    • kr says:

      what does this mean in Laymon terms for an actual scorpio ……… and i was told they say their somthing unique about my birthday 10/28??? I dont know what it is.

  103. Kitkat says:

    How does Saturn return affect a Scorpio Venus in eighth house and Scorpio mercury in eighth house ???

    • Nadia says:

      It will either intensify psychological issues or you’ll have to deal with paying off debts, signing financial documents, etc.

  104. VID says:

    I have Pisces rising which place Scorpio in my eight house no planets and my pluto in lib in the 7th house; how does Saturn return influence this placement?

  105. VID says:

    … my natal Saturn is in Gemini in the 4th house.

  106. Alex says:

    I am an Aquarius with moon in Scorpio in the 7th House in conjunction with Pluto in the 7th house (also sextile with Mercury in Capricorn in the 10th House). Oh it’s been 2 years now that something has been itching me and bend my mind(almost obsessively) on changing myself in order to mature, gain more experiences leave the past behind. Will Saturn be a help in all this?

  107. Janet says:

    I’m a natal Scorpio, Sag rising, Leo moon, with Mercury, Venus, and Saturn all in Scorpio in the 12th, and Uranus and Jupiter in the 8th. And I’m nervous about this Saturn return: the last few years haven’t exactly been a joy ride. Should I just find someplace to hide this fall–a monastery, an ashram…?

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn hitting your planets in the 12th can bring about major endings (and a life transition). Can’t say more without seeing your chart.

    • Opal says:

      Hi,I have a scorp sun merc and saturn in 12th house Sag asc,venus sag and moon sag.. Pluto in scorp years very difficult married to a abusive leo .During my first saturn return life was very difficult financially,then as saturn headed into Sag I gave birth to a son then 3 weeks later my mother died..That year turned into one of the worse years of my life. So I am thinking maybe I should be more concerned with the Sag transit and not the scorp. The Pluto in sag transit was the most freeing years for me..lots of to new cultures ,new husband..Just a very fun time. Hoping I can have a few more of those kind of years again…

  108. eltanu says:

    I have Moon, Mars & Saturn in Scorpio + My 5th house (Cancer Sun). I am probably in the lowest point of my life and certainly the lowest in my career, I can’t imagine having to lose more. But even then, I could afford to lose it all as long as I have my family, and now i’m scared this transit has anything to do with loss of family. How do you think this transit will affect me?

    • Nadia says:

      I really can’t say without seeing your entire chart. Family is ruled by the 4th House, so I would pay attention to transits/progressions to that house.

  109. jehn says:

    I have Saturn in scorpio in the 8th house and pluto in scorpio in the 7th house. How will Saturn return affect me please?

    • Nadia says:

      Possible limits on your personal power (Pluto) in relationships. Your Saturn Return will happen in your 8th House so watch for a major transition and opportunity to mature that involves intimacy (sex) and shared finances (debts, taxes, loans, partner’s finances).

  110. remi says:

    Hi, my moon is in Scorpio in the 9th house, and Saturn in Sagittarius in the 10th house. Any insight as to how this transit may affect me? Thank you.

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn over your Moon will clarify your needs about 9th House issues (long distance travel, exploration, education, escape).

  111. Joe says:

    Hi Nadia:

    I have the following planets in my natal chart: a scorp moon in the 11th house, saturn in pices in 4th house, neptune in Scorp in 12 house (retrograde), Mars in Gemini in my 7th house. Can you tell me which areas Saturn in Scorpio will have the most effect and in which way(s)? (I am a cancer with Sag rise) Thank you:) Joe

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn will impact your 11th and 12th Houses most strongly. Groups, friends, your connections to the group, subconscious issues.

  112. CB says:

    Hi, I have both moon and jupiter in scorpio both in the 7th house.. I also have sun, mercury,saturn,venus in taurus in the 1st house with mars in gemini in the 2nd. Aries rising…. oh and uranus in libra and pluto in virgo, both in the sixth house, so transformation through healing makes sense, but I feel the scorpio energy is a very different, much more intense, almost “tower card” type of healing. finally i have neptune in sagitarrius in the 8th house and north node in piscies in the 12th.

    how will the saturn in scorpio transit affect me please and what’s the best way forward through it? Any advice and insight is greatly appreciated.

  113. Joannie says:

    I’m Scorpio with Gemini Rising and Sun, Saturn and Pluto in the 5th House (Scorpio).
    What can I expect from this Saturn Return? I already feel a lot of fear and blockage since last year and this year has been really heavy, lonely and stressful.

    • Nadia says:

      Can’t say without seeing your whole chart. The 5th House is about creativity/purpose so those areas will be impacted.

  114. serenity says:

    I have Saturn in my fourth house in Scorpio which is also the cusp to the fifth house. It has been very difficult with Saturn in the third house / cusp of the fourth house in Libra. I have not had any luck getting a buyer to commit to buying my house although many have liked it. Will this change once Saturn moves into Scorpio which will still be in the fourth house but with my Saturn return in the early degrees.

  115. SaturnTransit says:

    I have a relatively large 6th house. It begins at 2 degrees libra and ends at 20 degrees scorpio so Saturn is transiting my 6th house for a long time. I have pluto sitting at 1 degree libra in 6th house. As saturn was conjunct to Pluto, I changed positions within the same organization. My current position is much more demanding, but also more rewarding. I am wondering how Saturn’s transition into Scorpio will play out.

    • Nadia says:

      There could be another transition within your current job. Perhaps a consolidation of your responsibilities, focusing on one or two things with more depth. Saturn in Scorpio can mean increased power, so Saturn in Libra might have been the proving stage and now you’ll move to the next level.

  116. deepu says:

    Hi Nadia..
    1. 8 th house Sun in Scorpio sign, 1 st house Moon in Aries sign and Pisces Ascendant..
    2. 9 th house Saturn in Sagittarius n 9th house Uranus in Sagittarius.
    3. 10th house Neptune in Capricorn..
    What are the effects on my career and love.. Yet to find success in career n love

    • Nadia says:

      I can’t speak to your career or love life without seeing your chart. But Saturn over your Sun in the 8th can hi-light issues around intimacy or shared finances (taxes, debts, loans).

  119. Leo says:

    Seriously, how can someone deal with losses if they don’t have anything? The fear I have is intimacy but I don’t see myself confronting it because I’m not really intimate with anyone. Secondly, the only thing I will probably have to deal with is depression because of the square on my Venus in Aquarius 10th house and Moon in Taurus in the 1st house but, I already deal with depression so it’s not a big deal. I really don’t see Saturn in Scorpio doing anything for me natally except sex-tile to my Sun, Mercury and Neptune.

    • Leo says:

      My Sun, mercury and Neptune are in the 9th house. Extra info: Transiting Uranus squares my Sun, Mercury and Neptune with a sextile to my Venus in 10th house. Thanks

    • Nadia says:

      Everyone has something. Even if it’s the fears/anxieties/angers/memories/blocks that they hold inside. But you didn’t say what house Saturn will transiting through.

  120. Vivien says:

    Hi Nadia,
    I’m Scorpio with a Capricorn Asc. and Pluto in Scorpio 9th house, any ideas on how the Saturn transit will affect me? Thanks so much for sharing, though it’s sort of scary not knowing what is to come!

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn over Pluto in the 9th could limit or focus your desires for 9th House activities: long distance travel, education, legal matters, publishing. There could be an opportunity in these areas…or the loss of an opportunity (depending on other transits). This house also represents mentors and teachers so someone may come into your life to guide you, or might become a mentor for someone else. But the weight of authority will be heavy.

  121. Carmen says:

    I’m a Taurus, asc. Scorpio and Saturn in Scorpio in the 12th house. Could you give some insight for that transit? My life is already getting messy, could that be the saturn return approaching?
    Really appreciate any insights, thanks.

    • Nadia says:

      I have no way of knowing without seeing the other transits/progressions hitting your chart. Depending on what degree of Scorpio your Saturn sits at, your Saturn Return could still still be a few years away.

  123. Tanaya says:

    Hi Nadia,

    I’m a Pisces (Taurus rising) with Saturn in Scorpio and Scorpio in my 4th and 5th house. I too had been looking forward to my Saturn returns, although now it’s started I’m terrified of what’s to come!! Are there many more challenges for me to face, and if spin what areas? Thank-you so much!

    • Nadia says:

      I would need to do a full reading of your chart before I could answer that question.

      • Tanaya says:

        Hi Nadia,

        Is it possible to do a forecast based around my Saturn return? I was thinking of getting one done with you, but just wanted to see your perspective first. I’ve had a few 12mth forecasts already, although they just seem to general and they don’t really take into consideration everything else that is happening. What chart would I order for this purpose? Many thanks.

        • Nadia says:

          Yes, it is. If you check out my Astrology Reports page you’ll see a Mini Consultation which focuses on one particular issue. I would look at the entire Saturn Return, so not just 12 months but however long your Saturn Return goes on for. I’d include any other transits and progressions that would be hitting your natal Saturn. But if you wanted a full on analysis of all the other transits/happening during your Saturn Return (impacting the rest of your chart) that would be a Future Trends report.

  124. Michelle says:

    Hi, I just got married in April of this year. I am a Taurus rising, Sag sun (in the 8th house), my Venus, Mars, Mercury & Jupiter are in the 7th house. What can I expect? Thank you!!

    • Nadia says:

      Congratulations on your marriage. But you’re asking me to do an analysis of transits to your chart, and I don’t do this for free.

  125. Michelle says:

    oops, my Venus,Mars, & Jupiter are all in Scorpio in the 7th house (my Mercury is in Capricorn in the 6th, oops again!) …. thank you!

  126. Michelle says:

    …also I am a Saturn rising, and my Vesta is in Scorpio as well… thx again!

  127. Mack says:

    Hey Nadia
    In my birth chart, my Saturn was in Scorpio, I’m a Cancerian. I know now that is going to be in my love house for coming 2 years and so.
    I did a lot of reading about having Saturn in Scorpio and how much that gives me dark power and the ability to manipulate others etc, would Saturn revisiting it’s place in my birth chart means anything in particular. A friend of mine told me “when a planet revisits your birth chart, it means it’s a rebirth of that certain characteristic to come in a different form” . Is that true? and would that make my love life hard to deal with OR revalued on new standards based on the Saturn’s revisit.

  128. sabrina says:

    Hi dear Nadia:

    I am a Libra with 4 planets in the 8th house in Libra, Mercury, Pluto, Venus and the Sun. So going through Saturn in Libra affected me deeply. My moon and Uranus are in Scorpio in the 9th House. How will Saturn in Scorpio will affect me?

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn over your Moon will intensify your needs. This could manifest as depression (at first) but it’s also an excellent influence for clarifying what you really want. Saturn over Uranus can either put limits on changes, or makes certain changes highly focused. Probably both.

  129. Megan says:

    Hi Nadia,

    I’m loving your site, and considering a consult. I have Saturn in Libra in 10th house. (this is my first return!) Scorpio Sun AND Venus are also in 10th, Scorpio Jupiter in 11th. So with all that scorpio, does it look like kiss’o’death?

    • Nadia says:

      Not at all. Saturn through the 10th House of career is usually a high-point for career responsibility and respect from others. Provided you’ve put in the work, of course.

  130. Kim says:

    I am a Scorpio, and my Moon, Mercury, Saturn, and Pluto are all in Scorpio in the 5th house. I’m apprehensive about the Saturn return… how it might affect me?

    In your experience doing chart readings, do you come across many charts that are bundled? All of my planets are in Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Capricorn in the 5th, 6th, and 7th houses. From what I’ve read, this is supposed to be pretty rare?

    • Nadia says:

      I’ve across a few charts with concentrations in certain areas. It means that transits impact multiple areas of your life in a shorter span of time. Intensified changes (as opposed to someone who has a spread-out chart). Saturn over all those planets in the 5th could affect any of these issues in your life; children, lovers, creativity, personal goals. Can’t say more than that without seeing your chart.

  131. Sheree says:

    I can’t wait til this nightmare is over! Saturn has been transiting my 2nd house and periodcally conjuncting my Neptune (2nd house) and it’s been a roller coaster ride for some time(several years now). Saturn has been squaring my Uranus and Jupiter (11th house) and on top of that I have had Pluto running back and forth over my N.Node (right now it’s conjuncting) in my 4th house. I have and still am under partner problems (finally he moved out 9 months ago but still is trying to make sure I am in the picture), financial (worst in years), and now when Saturn hits Scorpio, I have to look forward (being facicous) to a Saturn return in my 3rd which will also conjunct my Venus. My oldest daughter wants me to move to Los Angelas to help her with new baby, my youngest daughter says she wants me to move in with her (I don’t even bother to ask why) who eloped in May and didn’t tell me til last week because if she didn’t get in the graduate school 100 miles away I would blame it on her intentionally not getting into it because of her now husband. I guess it’s great your children want you around and an ex significant other wants you in his life, but all I want to do is run to a foreign country and start a new life! If I had the money, believe me, I would. I wonder if a Solar Return chart would help? Believe me, I would be any place in the world for my birthday (Dec. 1st), if it would really help in any aspect! What do you think?

    • Nadia says:

      Relocating your Solar Return chart might help; it won’t change the energies, but it will change what areas of your life they energies are operating in. So it would be a case of shuffling the most difficult aspects to areas where they would do the least harm, and moving the best aspects where they would have the greatest impact (like in your SR 1st House).

  132. Leah says:

    Dear Nadia,

    I am a Gemini/Pisces rising. I read your other post as well, on the saturn/mars conjunction which i found fit me very well. In my case this conjunction is in scorpio…. and i have always been uncomfortable with letting myself go when it comes to intimacy, but at the same time i want it so much. I was wondering whether this transit could perhaps involve events that will make me face this? Saturn is in my 7th house, mars in the 8th. They both oppose mercury (2nd house) and form a sextile with jupiter in the 11th house. Another question, is the overall lesson of the saturn/mars conjunction to throw myself into intimacy or let go? I’m really confused about that :(

    • Nadia says:

      It all depends on what house transiting Saturn will be moving through. The position of your natal Saturn doesn’t matter as much with this transit (unless transiting Saturn is hitting your natal Saturn).

      • Leah says:

        Thank you for your answer :) Yes, it will hit my natal Saturn in the 7th house and then very very quickly move into the eigth where my natal mars also is….. do you know how that would impact?

        • Nadia says:

          Saturn return in the 7th could indicate a turning point regarding relationships. What you want, what you don’t want, etc.

  133. Alexandra says:

    Hello Nadia,
    I am a Virgo with Scorpio rising, Saturn and Pluto in Scorpio as well, this past year has been a year of loss, and change and yet I feel that it isn’t over yet but only the beginning, can you give me some in sight on how this transit will impact me? Thank you.

  134. slomojoel says:

    Thank you for not being so doom and gloom about Saturn in Scorpio. I am looking forward to this transit as I see ones doing their first and second returns and it is a creative open bunch that seem ready to evolve. I’m especially impressed with ones from 1953, 54 and 55 with this Saturn transit and with the times as they are, feel like this could be a Saturn Return for the whole world in some ways.

    Would you address what may be different about having a retrograde Saturn in the natal chart? Thanks.

  135. Marley says:

    Libra rising with Sun and Venus in Scorpio how may this transit affect me ive heard that saturn venus conjunctions in the second house are good is this true?

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn/Venus in the 2nd can either limit your flow of cash or help you save what you have. Depends on what else is happening in your chart.

  136. amber says:

    Very much appreciate your article, website, the comments, and your generous responses.
    My natal Venus & Neptune is in Scorpio in the 8th house.
    Rising Pisces. Moon Cancer.

    The Pisces in me, is very concerned about this Saturn in Scorpio time period on many levels, for people all around the world.

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn could help you confront some romantic (Venus) illusions (Neptune) that you’ve buried (8th House). Can also help you clarify/focus romantic/sexual energy.

  137. Gabriel says:

    Dear Nadia

    I deeply appreciate your enlightening advice on this matter. Saturn is transiting my 12 house and squaring my natal moon right now; yesterday, as I launched a campaign to raise funds for a book I am trying to publish, I received word that my grandfather passed away. Now I have to travel to my homeland to face the (perceived) judgment of my family for what I have (or haven’t) managed to accomplish with my life, and how I live it (with my partner); I’ve been avoiding this trip on some level. As Saturn transits Scorpio it will square my 3rd house Aquarius mer/sun/ven conjunction; sextile my 2nd house neptune; conjoin my 12th house Pluto (personalized by aspect); it will cross my ascendant/square my midheaven; it will square my 4th house Aquarian Jupiter; it will conjoin my 1st house mars and trine my 9th house moon in cancer. It feels like his been restricting my life and (seemingly unbirthable) career forever (12th house); he hasn’t even left gentle libra yet. I can see myself reading this article repeatedly in the months to come.


    • Nadia says:

      I’m sorry to read about your grandfather.
      I think you will have a breakthrough when Saturn moves over your AC. This transit (from the 12th House to the 1st) usually involves an ending; leaving behind an old part of your life that was holding you back/is no longer applicable to where you’re going. It’s painful in the moment, but most people find a release when it happens. This might be related to your family…confronting them and moving on.

  138. ann says:

    does having jupiter in scorpio on the 7th house will make this saturn transit easier? considering i am a crab too. so saturn will be trine with my sun? its been tough to have saturn return in libra. i got stuck. really.

  139. jana says:

    Hi Nadia,
    Thank you for the cogent analysis and generous responses to questions. I imagine this is time consuming. If you have the energy for one more question: How do you expect Saturn in Scorpio to effect the Neptune in Scorpio generation?
    Thanks again!

    • Nadia says:

      Well, enough people have asked me this question that I think I’ll do a post on it in the near future. Stay tuned…

  140. Mila says:

    Hi there )

    I was trying to find some information about a transiting saturn (which is in the 7th house) conjuncts pluto (which is in the end of the 6th house 4 degrees to the 7th). I am just trying to realise the connection, is it mainly relationship issues or health. Because Pluto also is the ruler of the 7th house. Thank you if you can find a time to give a short insight )

    • Nadia says:

      If Pluto is in your 6th House then transiting Saturn will be moving over it in the 6th House. So it’s a health/work issue which could also involve service to others and their power over you/your power over them. It might impact your partnerships, but not until Saturn moves into your 7th House. Saturn cannot be in 2 houses at once.

  141. Barbara says:

    hi Nadia,
    I found your site while searching how the upcoming Saturn in Scorpio transition
    will affect me. I admire all people commenting here as being so knowledgeable
    about their charts! I am not that way although I have explored astrology for years in
    trying to determine my truth. I am Libra sun in the 6th house with Taurus rising, Scorpio in the 7th house of relationships. How will this transit affect me? Will it make me less afraid of true intimacy? This has been a problem all of my life. Thank you for your insight and time. :-)

    • Nadia says:

      Can’t say how it will impact your intimacy fears without seeing the rest of your chart (which requires a consultation). All I can say is that Saturn through the 7th will focus your attention on relationship issues, relationship power struggles, boundaries, etc.

  142. Jill says:

    How will a Saturn return affect me with Mercury,Jupiter and Neptune in Scorpio all in the 4th house??? Thank you for your infinite wisdom……

  143. Shelley says:

    I have a Libra Sun with Scorpio rising . I have Scropio in Mercury 20 and Neptune in 20 the first house also scorpio is my south node..The past three years have been hard on my relationships Left my husband for a woman that I fell in Love with so deeply and she left me. I have not heard from her in a year but think of her everyday. I feel that she will come back into my life someday. How will this Saturn in Scorpio have effects on me?
    I would love to have a chart reading for this situation, is this something that can be foretold.

    Thank you

  144. charles says:

    where can i find your site to pay for a reading?

  145. sdfsdf says:

    I’m a Sun/Jupiter Taurus, with Pluto/Scorpio and Midheaven/Scorpio. How will this transit affect me? (descriptions of sun and jupiter oppositions to saturn i read are a bit gloomy)

    • Nadia says:

      Depends on what house your Sun/Jupiter is in. Saturn oppositions can represent challenges from external authority to your personal (Sun) authority (Jupiter).

  146. jayne says:

    hi, i am libra rising,sun sagg. Saturn in scorpio will transit 1st house, with jupiter at 0 degrees scorpio. Self-transformation?

  147. Joanne says:

    Hi Nadia!
    How would the Saturn Transit most likely impact me, I’m a Sun Scorpio and my 4th house is occupied by Sun Scorpio, Mercury Scorpio, and Uranus Scorpio? Thanks so much! Grateful for your site!

  148. Belinda says:

    Hi Nadia,
    Saturn in Scorpio will soon conjoin my IC at 3 degree 45 Scorpio and my natal Mars in Scorpio is close to my IC at 5 degree 24 Scorpio so Saturn in Scorpio. My fourth house is ruled by Scorpio. Does this mean I may move from my current home? What issues will I encounter from Saturn crossing my Scorpio IC and conjoining the ruler of my 4th house?

    • Nadia says:

      Can’t say without seeing your whole chart. But saturn over the IC usually points to increased responsibility as opposed to relocation. However, if moving were part of ths increase in responsibility at home, then it would happen.

  149. Belinda says:

    Thank you so much for your input…it clarifies my inner feeling. I have read a lot of your comments about the Saturn in Scorpio and they have helped me to become more aware of the change of energies that will occur when Saturn enters Scorpio. I really enjoy your site which I found by accident but now I will read regularly.

    This is a wonderful piece of writing, and I have a feeling it will serve as a touchstone over the next three years.

  153. Wendy Caban says:

    My boyfriend has Saturn conjunct Venus in Scorpio. Im not sure in what house because his time of birth is uncertain. I personally have my Saturn in Sagittarius 8th house. I confess that im feeling much worry over his upcoming Saturn Return. I just find it interesting and curious that his Saturn Return coincides almost exactly with the time that i will be travelling and moving out from where i live, to move in with him. (I live in Puerto Rico, he lives in Indiana) Its a big step but ive made it final. We are in a long distance relationship and have been communicating for almost a year now, but come the beginning of November we will unite for the first time and start our lives together, and this coincides with the beginning of his Saturn Return. Im not sure what to ask but is there anything you can tell me about this? How will Venus the planet of love be affected, since it is conjunct his Saturn? Thank you in advance.

    • Nadia says:

      His Saturn Return will be a huge turning point for him, but I can’t say more than that without analyzing his chart and yours (which requires a consultation).

  154. CW says:

    Saturn in Scorpio is going to be transiting my 8th house and eventually my 9th house. Can you offer any insight into what sort of challenges/changes this will bring?

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn through the 8th can define shared finances (time to pay off the debts). It can also define intimacy issues/fears. Saturn through the 9th can focus you on certain opportunities by restricting you from doing other 9th House activities (for example, you don’t get into 6 of the colleges you applied to and you’re left with the 7th option).

  155. Linda says:

    I am sun sign Scorpio, and my natal Venus & Mercury are in Scorpio and natal Saturn is in Scorpio. Black Moon Lilith is in Scorpio. Rising sigh Libra, moon in Libra. Will this coming transit of Saturn in Scorpio affect me especially hard? Thank you.

  156. susan says:

    Saturn in scorpio, and ascendant
    the last return was pure hell
    please help

    • Nadia says:

      Not sure how I can help you without seeing your chart. If you’re afraid the same things will happen again with this transit, it all depends the other transits/progressions that are hitting your chart.

    • Susan Bird says:

      I Admire Your Asking For Help.
      You were 30 Years Younger. It will be different this time.

  157. susan pills says:

    life has been awful the last few years ….and now saturn returns and ascendent in scorpio
    what next
    please help

  158. Scorpfull says:

    Scorpio Sun, Ascendant and Pluto… and I have Saturn in Scorpio, all in my 12th house. Also just about to enter my saturn return.. Should I expect this to be a very difficult period? I am good with change for the most part, but all this Scorpio energy seems frightening. I also have a cancer moon.

    • Nadia says:

      Whether it’s difficult or not depends on the other transits/progressions hitting your chart. But Saturn through the 12th House usually requires that you let go of something (some part of your life/identity) in order to facilitate the transformation that will happen when Saturn passes over your Ascendent. Since this will be your Saturn Return, what you let go of will have extra significance…it will be part of the maturing process. Ask yourself what is no longer appropriate to carry forward, in the context of growing up (this will be true whether it’s your 1st or 2nd Saturn Return).

  159. Lisa Miller says:

    Hi Nadia, I’ve search and searched for more specifics on what I am about to ask, can you shed more light (positive or neg.) on the key traits affected for those with Scorpio in their 3rd house and naturally what that relays with Scorpio’s transist on Oct. 6th? I can’t find this anywhere! if it may matter, I am a Cancer/Virgo Rising with Saturn having had a torturous financial journey in my 2nd House of Libra, though now moving to my 3rd house of comm., siblings, etc…I am almost “0 degrees, 0.5 with Scorpio in my 3rd house. Thank you!!

    • Nadia says:

      3rd House is communication, intellect and siblings. Scorpio’s energy gives all these things an intensified energy, and you may also be dealing with secrets or forbidden issues. Saturn’s transit will bring any old secrets to the surface.

      • Lisa Miller says:

        Thanks Nadia, I appreciate the note. Curious if a person’s degrees in any house, e.g. 1 degree, matters with the transist and how it affects, meaning more intense, or weaker/diluted due to a person’s degree within that house. Just curious if you know!

  160. Lisa Miller says:

    as addendum to above, sorry for confusion! Didn’t explain it all has to do specifically wiht Saturn now transisting those with Scorpio in their 3rd house, and the changes in traits.

  161. Katie says:

    Hi Nadia-
    Just wanted to thank you for the article on Saturn going into Scorpio- I have a 0 degree Scorpio rising with Neptune in Scorpio and 5 planets in Taurus- Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars and Jupiter all in Taurus in the 7th house . Already feeling this intensity – ” a friend” who I had known for 27 years suddenly revealed that they are not a friend. Sadly, I had been very loyal to them ( my Taurus nature). Issues came to the surface- be verbal about how they have hurt me or let it go and move on. Expression not for the sake of manipulation or control or not say anything and be passive/aggressive- give and take with relationships seems to be the theme of my life ( obviously!) and I end up playing giver to the point of doormat most of the time. The way I heal is to channel everything into art.
    Will bookmark this article and refer to it in the future.
    Thank you!

    • Nadia says:

      You’re welcome, and sorry to read about the ending of your friendship. Even though it was revealed to be false…still hurts.

      OMG Katie. I am right there with you. I have moon, mercury, venus and jupiter in Taurus, but in the 12th house (which makes me a mega-martyr – yuck!)

  162. Izabella Desa says:

    Thanks a lot for your article, Nadia. It really portrays what I´ve been going through for the past months. My natal chart has Moon conjunct Neptune in Scorpio in the 8th house and my natal Saturn is in Pisces in the 12th. So, have serious issues with control and holding grudges. To make matters worse, transiting Neptune is conjunct my natal Saturn. With transiting Saturn in my Scorpio in my 8th house, I have been facing serious problems with betrayal (especially at the worplace), which I have been obsessing about. I have the feeling that I need to constantly watch my back to avoid being stabbed at work. Up until now, I had this ilusion (Neptune´s fault, I guess) that I had this harmonious atmosphere at work and that everybody was working togegher for the improvement of the whole group. Now, it has become clear to me that I was so very wrong and that people are just after their own good and they may easily stomp over you if needed. It seems that all the masks have dropped down and now I can see the real faces of those people and they don´t look very good to me. Reading your article made me realize I have to let go of my feelings of resentment. So, thanks again.

    • Nadia says:

      You’re welcome. Moon/Neptune in Scorpio can dive deeply into illusions, but also has the power to be profoundly healing (for yourself and others). Having this conjunction in the 8th House is tough…that’s a lot of intensified emotions. But it can give you flawless instincts, as you’re discovering.

  163. Suze says:

    Hello there, I have a Scorpio moon in my 4th house, please can you give me any advice on how the Saturn transit will effect me. Thank you for your help x

  164. Mahreen says:

    Hi, I love what you’ve mentioned in the article and made me realize that I also have Saturn conjunction with Mars in 10th Scorpion house. If there’s anything you would like to suggest me as I’ve had ups and downs in my career. Thanks

    • Nadia says:

      You’re really good at working hard, but probably not great with authority (the authority of others). The main issue is probably taking orders, so you’d be better at giving orders (although you may doubt that about yourself). Also, keep reminding yourself that everyone is not trying to challenge you.

      • Mahreen says:

        It’s true that I sense competition from my colleagues so I guess I’ll have to find the medium to balance this. Thanks for your reply I appreciate it.

  165. teresa says:

    Have had saturn in libra in my first house, Neptune in libra in house twelve, and
    my ascendant in libra. In some other natal charts I have Scorpio as an ascendant,
    and saturn in libra in house twelve, and neptune in libra in house twelve. I have
    had to resign from my job of twenty years after much backbiting,victimization and
    behind the scenes manipulation. I am trying to pick up the peices and go on.Saturn,
    has been a real taskmaster in this aspect. What can I expect after Scorpio goes into
    Saturn Oct.2012 ?

    • Nadia says:

      There’s no way I can tell you without analyzing your chart. Your AC shouldn’t be changing signs though (unless the birth time is off).

  166. Dan says:

    Saturn will conjunct my progressed Sun just shy 5 scorpio with a nice trine from progressed moon/8th house. Radix rising24 libra/thus transiting North node on rdx2 house cusp.

    • Nadia says:

      Could be a confrontation that involves your ego (Sun) but the trine from your Prog Moon is good news. Means you should be able to handle it, emotionally.

  167. Patty says:

    Hi Nadia,
    I have been waiting & reading about Saturn in Scorpio. My saturn is in Scorpio in the 11th house. Virgo w/ sag rising, virgo moon, virgo venus. Can you tell me what effects saturn will have in my 11th house? Thank you in advance..

  168. Pepper says:

    This is a great piece of writing thank you!

    I think my Saturn/Scorpio is in my 7th house. FUN!

  169. Puns says:

    Hi Nadia,

    Can you please tell something abut the chart0 dated: 13-09-83; tym: 10:55PM


  170. Alicia says:

    Hi Nadia:

    I am a Scorpio, born 11/17/56 at 2:02 AM. I had a terrible time during the Saturn transit way back from 82-84, and not just then. My daughter who was born on 11/10/84 at 4:13 am is also a Scorpio. We are one week apart. Needless to say, back then I was going through major problems with her father and we split for a 1 1/2 years right after she was born. I don’t want my daughter going through hardship. She will be 28 soon. I will be 56. What can we expect. I just don’t think I have the strength to go through bad stuff again. I’m too old for this and she’s just starting out in life.

  171. helena says:

    Hello there,

    my ascendant is cancer and I have libra in my 4th house and past 3 years had been like a hell when saturn transits libra..

    now, my natal saturn placed in my 5th house and guess what it’s scorpio..

    my question is what happens when saturn transits your natal saturn sign which are both scorpio?

    I looked into it but couldn’t able to find much info.. I need some help..

    • Nadia says:

      It’s called a Saturn Return. Major turning point where you decide what leave to be left behind, and what you can move forward with. It’s the “grow up” transit…

  172. Opal says:

    Alicia..Hi my birthdate is 11/17 /55..I know what you mean about a rough saturn return mine is in the 12 house as well . it is in the late degrees of it hit really hard as my saturn was leaving scorp entering sag. Gave birth to my son and my mom died 3 weeks later. My moon is in sag so..very bad time emotionally.It is a worry as I dont want to see my children having a difficult time. My pluto in sag years have been the best years as far as not alot of trauma, and more enjoyment out of life..How about you?

    • Alicia says:

      Thank you Opal. Sorry you went through a rough time too. I don’t know anything about placement of the planets but I will say that the last several years have been relatively calm compared to the prior 20-30 years. Although I have just lost my mom, but that was expected as she was pretty old.

  173. Jay says:

    I am a Scorpio born Nov 15, ’63 in the afternoon..What Impact will Saturn have on me? Or am I a Libra? I don’t understand this thing about houses (8th, 9th, 12th etc) can you enlighten please. Thanks.

  174. Kate says:

    Thank you in advance. Born 11/13/65@7:05 am ET.Feeling uncertainties on eve of October 5th transit. Struggling with dear friend 02/29/80 recent move(loss of control?) Any suggestions?

  175. Sarah b says:

    I’ve already accepted my fate

    The next two years are gonna BLOW

  176. Kristen says:

    I have a Scorpio sun, Mercury, Pluto, N node, Uranus and Mars in Scorpio.. All in my fourth house. What does this mean regarding Saturn? Saturn was in Leo when I was born in my first house.

  177. JLynn says:

    Nadia, I am a a Scorpio with six planets in Scorpio, fifth house. Any suggestions? Thank you.

    • Nadia says:

      5th House represents children, creativity, personal goals and new romance. Any of these areas could become your focus. Best advice is don’t ignore whatever or whoever is trying to get your attention (that includes your personal goals).

  178. Dominic says:

    Hi Nadia,

    I have my ascendant in Leo, MC in Taurus, Sun in Libra, Jupiter in Scorpio and Venus in Scorpio, oh and mars in Virgo. I have been dealing with the contraints of Saturn for several years as it went from Leo, to Virgo, to Libra and now in Scorpio. How will saturn in Scorpio affect me. I know Jupiter is the planet of expansion and saturn of restrictions. Does this mean I will have to deal with more limitations for 3 more years. Most of my limitations have been financial in nature for almost 9 years. Most websites seem to point that the approaching limitations will be in the home and family life but many libra sun sign descriptions are pointing to limited income. Thanks for your help.

  179. Eva Kelemen says:

    Great article!
    I am a Scorpio with Gemini Rising, Mars, Venus both in Scorpio, Mercury in Libra and Saturn in Cancer. I have had a REALLY tough year so far! Any idea how Saturn in Scorpio will affect me?
    Thanks very much!

  180. Ashley says:

    Hey Nadia,

    Thank you so much for writing this. My Ascendant and Pluto are both in Scorpio, with a Pisces Sun, and Libra Moon. These past few years have been the most transformative for me. Looking forward to what lessons i’ll learn these next few years.

  181. Richelle says:

    Hi Nadia, can you help me with mine? On my natal chart is says: Sun sign Gemini 26.38, Moon sign Pisces 25.42, and Ascen Taurus 23.41, don’t know if that helps, but as far as Saturn it is in Sagittarius 17.12 R also Sagittarius is in my 8th house at 20.18. Pluto is in Scorpio 7.24 R. And then Scorpio is in my 7th house at 23.41. What do you think?

  182. Tugba says:

    Hai nadia, i am scorpio rising capricorn..venus in scorpio,mercur in scorpion and 11 house in scorpio..and my husbands is taurus rising taurus..i think seventh house is that sometihing that i have to worry for my marriege?thank you

    • Nadia says:

      Transiting Saturn through the 7th is not necessarily bad for a marriage. It will define your commitment, but what happens will depend on how things are currently going between you two.

  183. Hopeful says:

    Hi Nadia,
    I am hoping you can help me with understanding if this transit will help me or not. I am desperately hoping so, as I do not know what to do to solve my relationship challenges, and I am hoping I will find some answers to this through this transit.

    I have very challenging natal aspects with my Venus (Pisces in the 3rd house)….it opposes both Uranus and Pluto in Virgo in the 9th house however, my Venus is also trine Neptune in Scorpio in the 11th house. I am very intuitive and realistic in most matters, however, I can also be deceived and taken advantage of in matters of the heart.

    My sun, moon and mars are conjunct, 4th house, in Taurus.
    My Saturn is Pisces, 3rd house, as well as conjuncting Chiron in the 3rd house….and both ALSO oppose Uranus and Pluto

    My Saturn trine Neptune, Scorpio in the 11th house.

    Confused? I am….because I don’t know if this is good or bad for me. I read that this transit will be in my relationship sector because I am Taurus. Your thoughts? Or will seeing my chart be easier to understand? I appreciate any input you can provide. Thank you.

  184. Hopeful says:

    Sorry, forgot to add that my Venus Pisces 14°50’38” in 3rd house is loosely conjunct Saturn Pisces at an orb of 9.54 . And Mercury Aries 3°23′ 2″, 3rd house, also loosely conjunct my Saturn at a 8°38s orb. Wow….I hope this all makes some sense? lol

  185. Hopeful says:

    Ooops after all that…I realized that is too detailed to answer without a consultation. Sorry.

    • Nadia says:

      No problem. FYI, this transit will be in your 11th House, because that’s where Scorpio is in your chart. Your sector of friends and groups. Sun sign horoscopes (my horoscopes included) make general predictions, and use the Sun sign as rising sign, which is why they say Taurus Sun will have Saturn transiting through the relationship sector. All people w/Taurus Suns will feel Saturn’s transit in a very general way as a relationship issue, because it will, at some point, oppose their Sun. An opposition always involves “the other”, which could be a partner. But you need to get your chart analyzed to see precisely how this transit will impact you.

  186. Emmazzsstt says:

    I am anxious/looking forward to what my saturn return beholds….I am scorpio sun (it seems like a lot of intense scorpio energy coming up within the nest few months)…born 11/15/1984 in the am (I think cancer moon….lots of sag in my chart). Any thoughts?

  187. ali says:

    Saturn.will be transiting in my 7th house and also n this house i have jupiter in scorpio. Do you have any.advice for me?

    • Nadia says:

      If you’re confronted with any responsibilities in your partnerships, don’t avoid them. With a Saturn transit they’ll keep coming back until you deal with them.

  188. Marlene Alberty says:

    Hi Nadia, I recently came across this website and think the work you are doing here is wonderful!
    I have a question concerning Saturn in Scorpio making a conjunction to the following:
    South Node 01 SC 59 located in the 7th (7th house Cusp 04 LI 17)
    Mars 06 SC 42 also located in the 7th
    Neptune 21 SC 35 Rx located in the 8th house (8th house Cusp 13 SC 27)
    Saturn in the natal chart is located in the 1st house in Aries at 12 degrees
    (ASC 04 AR 16) (MC 02 CA 25)
    Saturn entered Scorpio here in Las Vegas at 1:33 PM. :-)
    Thanks for any response on this!

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn over your SN could bring a past life relationship (or past life relationship issues) up. There will probably be a sense that you owe this person something. Quite a heavy transit.

  189. chris says:

    Hey Nadia,
    I’ve got Saturn in Scorpio in the 7th house. Any thoughts on how what area this / how severe this transit will affect me? Sun in Aqua.

    • Nadia says:

      You’ll be having your Saturn Return in your 7th House. If you’re in a relationship, it will be decision time…commit or not. If you’re single, you may feel the urge to settle down. Beyond that, I can’t say much without seeing your chart.

  190. Erin says:

    Hi Nadia,
    I’ve got Scorpio in my 5th House and nowhere else in my birth chart. I am single and I just reconnected with a guy from high school (who I have a past with) who’s sun sign is Scorpio, Venus in Scorpio, and Mars in Scorpio. He said he is single too. What should I do?

    • Nadia says:

      Can’t hurt to explore things and see what happens. Transiting Saturn through the 5th House can possibly result in a love affair (5th House) that turns serious. Mind you, it can also mean restrictions on a love affair, but you really have to look at both charts to see what’s going on. But there’s only one way to find out, right?

  191. monica choudhury says:

    Dear Nadia

    i am impressed with your analysis .

    I will like an email chart reading .

    I was born at 1.20 pm on 17/05/1951 at DARBHANGA , INDIA
    I now live in UK .

    i will arrange payment through my paypal account once i hear from you .



  192. Hena says:

    Dear Nadia,

    Your blog has been very enlightening for people like me who are new to the world of astrology. I have gained a lot of knowledge about the current transit of Saturn in Scorpio by reading your comments on everyone’s charts. I’d really appreciate if you could provide some analysis on my birth chart as well.

    I’m a Scorpio sun with Libra Moon and my natal Saturn is in Virgo in the 12th house along with Venus and Jupiter. I have natal Mars in Scorpio in the 2nd house. Additionally I am single and 31 years old. How will this transit affect me? Will it be beneficial or stressful for my personal relationships/ career? Is marriage also likely during this transit for me?

    • Nadia says:

      While I don’t mind offering up the odd observation about people’s charts, you are asking me a list of questions that I can only answer with a paid consultation.

  193. Hena says:

    I will email you my birth details for a paid consultation. However, i’d appreciate if you could give a brief overview of how this transit will effect someone with the same house placements as mine. I have gone through a difficult phase this past year on the personal and professional front. I’ve been stressing about making a career move and leaving a certain painful past behind. Is there a silver lining with this transit?

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn through the 2nd House will define your security needs and finances. There will probably be limits on how much money you have coming in, but beyond that I can’t say without seeing your chart.

  194. Sharon says:

    Hi Nadia,
    In my Solar return, I will have my Sun/Sag in the 8th house opposite Jupiter in Gem in 2nd as well as North Node Scorpio in 8th house.

    Saturn 07 degrees Scorpio and Venus 15 degrees Scorpio in 7th house.

    I get this strong feeling it’s relationship time. But I really don’t need it as I’m independent, and they have never worked out. Is this a Karmic lesson I need to go through? Never been married. Have done a lot of emotional healing with family matters, but have a feeling this is one more hurdle I am going to have to confront. (Natal Saturn in Leo in 1st house, Sun in 4th house) Done with Sat Return 5 yrs ago.

    Thank you for your wonderful posts. If my guess is true, I am sure I will be consulting you in the near future!

    Many Blessings and Light to you.

    • Nadia says:

      Hm. Saturn and Venus in the SR 7th House can indicate a serious relationship. But it will also be about your awareness of relationship limits and restrictions. Of course, it’s always your choice to engage or not.

  195. Sharon says:


    After reading another article you wrote about the North Node in the 7th house, I thought I should add that my Solar Return North Node in Scorpio will be on the 7/8th house cusp. My Natal South Node is in Scorpio in the 4th house.

  196. Lucy says:

    I had plenty of grief and misfortune since 2009. Life didnt gave me any breaks and a living was a mockery. Afraid wouldnt be able to face more struggle, not interested. I am a 42 years Scorpio with Cappricorn ascendant. Have no family, home or fortune. Hoped that that period will pass but no.. Looks like that’s it for me.

  197. Debasis says:

    Hi Nadia

    I do not know astrology. But presently am passing thru tough time that is why I broused thru your site. I left my job in July 2012 and there after not getting any job although attended few interviews and expected to receive offer. But alas.
    I am a scorpio (DOB-12/11/1958, TOB-00.25Hrs, Place of birth-Calcutta/India). I started to construct 1st floor of my house, but as income has stopped I stopped construction. Should I sell away my car? I am puzzled. Please advise what I should do.

  198. SG says:

    I have Uranus in scorpio in my 12th house. I am hoping to either go back to work or start a new career before Saturn hits my Ascendant. What would you advice a Sagittarius ascendant?

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn through the 12th always brings something to a close. Could be an outmoded lifestyle, job, whatever. So think about how that fits in with your career plans…leaving something behind to start something new.

  199. Kyle says:

    Scorpio ASC at 5-degrees, with Pluto at 28-degrees Libra and Saturn at 3-degrees Scorpio. Both are Retrograde.

    The “power” things has been funny for me. I’ve always surrendered power to anybody who appeared to want or need it for whatever reason.
    A part of me has always, in those moments, thought “ok, here, have the power – just be conscious of the lessons you’re about to learn because of your decisions.”
    So, for most of my life, I’ve just let everybody around me run the show.
    I don’t really feel like I need to have control over anything, being perfectly content to let life just pull me along – like being in a raft floating down a river. I have a belief about how if you’re not invited – meaning, if you’re always running around trying to “do” things or “get things done”, you’re just getting in the way of the natural flow of the universe.
    I’m torn though. It’s almost like having such an easy-going attitude makes people resent me quite a bit. It’s like because I don’t really give a shit about trying to control every situation and just going with the flow, people get angry at me. Like they can’t understand why the pressure to do this thing or that is getting to them and not me.
    I hear “you should do this/that” or “you need to do this/that” all of the time, and my immediate response is always “I don’t need to do anything” or “don’t tell me what to do”. I don’t really understand why, but some people get really pissed off by these responses. My father, especially, and an old room mate. They used to scold me for telling them “don’t tell me what to do” like it was their right to be able to do it or something.
    I even try to help people get the best of me, too. When they ask “do you WANT do to this/that?”, realizing what they really mean is that they don’t want to do it themselves and are trying to get me to do it for them, I’ll say “no, I don’t want to”. When they get huffy about it, I’ll say “look, if you want me to do it instead of you, just ask me if I *can*, and if I feel like I have the capacity to do it, I’ll do it. If you ask me if I want to and I don’t want to, I’ll tell you I don’t want to.”
    They’ll tell me that I know what they mean when they ask if I “want” to, but I guess I just have a thing about how language is used.

    It’s funny, too, whenever people meet me they think that I’m a really fun guy with nice, calm, relaxed energy. But it usually doesn’t take too long for comments about how I’ve lost my “funness”, and it’s usually because of all the pressure and demands turn me into a pretty spiteful person.
    That room mate (he was gay), he used to give me shit all of the time for not noticing when he moved stuff around or redecorated. Or if I’d go out and not call him to tell him where I was going he’d call me to bitch at me for it. Or how I would never kick the water down the drain in the tub to avoid dirty from building up. He’d get on me the first chance he got to complain about it. Eventually I started doing more of the things he asked of me but smiled less, joked less, responded to his attempts to make conversation less.

    It’s strange – I really want to do good things for people, but I hate the pressure to do it. Like, if there was a list of things that needed to be done, I would do them. But if someone came along and started to demand when and how, I would shut right down on them – either not doing the task or giving them less of my light.

    Another thing I’ve noticed is that when I’m around, people seem to get “lucky” a lot. But when people start speaking down to me, stealing my energy, or just treating me in a disrespectful manner, the opposite happens.

    I used to be a house player at an underground poker club, and while the manager and I were getting along, the game was thriving. Then one day, we were both playing on the same table and I ended up beating him out of all of his chips, and he became immediately sour. We got in an argument after I tried to cash out and go home because I was tired and couldn’t focus any longer, and in the argument he banned me from ever returning to the club.
    After I left, I heard through some contacts that were regulars at the club that he was making some speculative decisions, became a bit of a control freak, one of his players got mugged outside of the club, and only a couple of weeks later people stopped showing up.

    Another example is my current living situation with my uncle. I moved in with him about two years ago, and after I got here he got a new job that he really enjoyed and a new “dream car”. Almost the same day Saturn hit my ascendant, he said something that offended me – and since that day I’ve completely avoided him. He’s gone from working 3-5 days a week to having only gone to work 3-5 times over the last 2 months or so.

    That old room mate, after him belittling me and trying to control me for so long, I had gotten so “drained” and tired, that I started misbehaving at work, eventually losing my job. And then my employment insurance took MONTHS to kick in, and during that period, he was forced to pay all of the rent and buy all of the groceries. Things got extremely stressful.

    Conversely, a friend of his used to speak to me like I was a gift from god. He used to say things like “even though things aren’t working out for you right now, Kyle, I know in my heart that there’s something special about you.” He’d come over on the weekends and we’d sit together watching sports that he’d bet on, and on a number of occasions he’d have big bets come through. He’d tell me that I was his “good luck charm”.

    I mention this because I’ve read things recently about Saturn and Pluto being together creating mystical “occult” situations. And I’ve sort of always felt like I was some kind of “instrument”, and depending on how the other person played me, they were either going to be blessed or cursed by me.

    My (Leo) father treated me (5th House Aries Sun Square 8th House Cancer Moon) worse than anybody and now he’s dying of cancer.

    I wonder if anybody else who has as Scorpio ASC with a Saturn/Pluto conjunction has experienced anything similar.

  200. Jose Maria says:

    I have my natal Sun, Neptune, and Mars in Scorpio in house 3. Mars and Neptune in conjunction, and the Sun conjunct with Mercury, which is in Libra. My natal Saturn is in Capricorn, in house 5, in conjunction with Jupiter. And my natal Pluto is in house 1, conjunct with Ascendent and Uranus.

    What am I feeling in the last 3-4 weeks? Two very different things. One, absolute desperation, hopelessness, and even with moments of feeling suicidal. The other one, a strong urge to stop the internal turmoil, sometimes chaos, I have most of my life lived in. It’s almos as if I wanted to build a container around it, and to put a strong limit to how much I pour myself into what I do (I’m a very dedicated coach, teacher, and consultant). I feel this almost new to me urge to think about myself first and foremost, and it feels weird and even selfish, and good at the same time.
    Within hours, I can go from wanted to kill myself to making long-term plans that include, first of all, putting things in order.

    Does all this make any sense to anyone reading this?
    Thank you.

    • Nadia says:

      This makes sense to me. Your chart has a lot of extreme energy in it. Lots of heavy Pluto/Scorpio which dives deep and then comes up for air. Possibly being activated by Saturn’s transit. And Libra (if your Sun/Mercury is being hit by the Uranus/Pluto square) swings from one extreme to the other in order to find balance. As for the new urge to put yourself first, I’m wondering if that’s connected to your North and South Nodes (being activated by a transit).

      • Jose Maria says:

        Thank you for your reply.
        I don’t know about the nodes. I know my True Node (which one is that?) is in house 12, in Leo, in conjunction with my natal Uranus.

  201. Shravaka says:

    Hi Nadia,
    thank you for the info and comments. Could you say something about my chart with Saturn passing over my Venus conjunct Neptune in Scorpio (trine Moon in Cancer in the 8th) soon in my 12th house.

    Thank you

    • Nadia says:

      Either a disappointment or manifestation of a desired dream. Depends on the rest of your chart/other transits. But definitely a confrontation with reality (possibly involving an ending).

  202. Nicolette says:

    Hi Nadia
    Could you give me some thoughts on what is happening for me currently please.

    I have Natal Neptune in Scorpio 12 degrees in 4th House. My Moon in Taurus opposing Neptune and is square Natal Saturn and Natal Jupiter in Capricorn/Aquarius. Saturn has already transited my IC last year.

    Thank you in advance

    • Nadia says:

      Saturn over the IC usually increases responsibilities with home/family and revisiting the past. In opposition to your Moon, you might feel some depression, but it’s Saturn’s way of forcing you to attend to your own needs (as opposed to getting them met by someone/something else). Saturn cuts out the externals, so you’re compelled to look at what really matters. And all of this will be in the context of home/family (possibly parents/mother). The good news is, things shoudl start to get easier now that Saturn has passed your IC.

  203. Ama says:

    Could you give me some insight as well? My 12th house is in Scorpio, which has my Sun and Mercury. These planets do not make any major aspects to my other planets.

    Thank you in advance.

    surrendering to the spirit has been excellent. just one drawback, how does one continue without income?seeking employment doesnt seem to pan out for me. reassessing all my skills and cleansing unwanted influences in the meantime have been helpful but i see no future.

    • Nadia says:

      Sorry I can’t help you more, but I’d need to see your chart. I know that it’s frustrating and depressing to be unemployed, but from an astrological perspective I would say look at transits/progressions to your 10th house and 6th House to see if there are any changes coming up.

      • karen says:

        hello. i had no idea there was a reply but since i dont know how to follow the transits in the houses i will be confused.
        learning the contrasts and redirecting energies and keeping that momentum focused is as good as it can get wish i could send you the chart but how does one do that?
        i know others do not have things this harsh, this isilating, but there is empowerment surfacing from some unknown depth working too hard just to survive what are the alternatives?

    My natal sun is 12 degrees Scorpio as is my natal Pluto (12 degrees). Thank you for your description of Scorpio Saturn’s influence. It was illuminating for me on multiple levels 😉

    How does this play for a Sun, Venus and Jupiter stellium at 17 degrees Scorpio in the tenth house? Now that it turned direct again, it suddenly cut a – very short, I agree – romantic relationship started exactly when it turned retrograde, in February. Thanks :)

    • Nadia says:

      I can’t tell you what will happen with the relationship without analyzing your charts, but in general, Saturn over 10th House planets will confront you with realities/responsibilities about public or professional status. Your public reputation is coming into play.

    Hi I have sun in aquarius, moon in cancer, leo ascendant, venus Capricorn, mars in scorpio and Saturn in scorpio I’ve been reading about this Saturn return, going through pretty tough time with mental illness and lots of fear and mistrust and my whole life has been torn down even lived on the streets for 6 months i’m trying to find an answer any advice you can give me would be amazing must say this last year has been an amazing spiritual awakening and very musical too just need a little bit of advice on how to stay strong and not go insane

    • Nadia says:

      Sorry to read about your difficulties. Saturn return is a transition to the next level of maturity, and in Scorpio this involves confronting your Shadow side. The fear and mistrust is most likely a symptom of this (your Shadow). Your life being torn down is Saturn’s way of removing what you no longer need, although I’m sure this feels ridiculously harsh with what you’ve been through. Saturn always focuses you on the essentials, so work with what you have left and build from there.

    I came upon your blog today and found the comments posted helpful. I am currently experiencing extreme challenges with Saturn’s transit through Scorpio. In my natal chart Neptune is at 6.38 degrees; the Moon is at 14.27 degrees; and Jupiter is at 24.40 degrees in Scorpio and all in the 8th house. I literally feel as if everything is being shattered. Do you have any advice that could help shine some light into what feels like a very dark terrain. Thank you!

    Saturn transit is conjunct my Sun in Scorpio right now in tenth! and I am going through a lot of fear with physical manisfestations. I am trying to tell myself it is just fear. Very difficult. We may have a lot of power but it is hard to execute it when you are so fearful. My main difficulty is moving forward. I love to write and want to start a blog, but of course having difficulty thinking of a name! ha! I have been in this transit of my midheaven with also venus, jupiter and neptune in Libra and boy do I have the creative desire! My main conflict is moving away from past friends and activities and going forward. Few friends now.I keep going back. also, have Capricorn ascendant. Is there anything you can tell me to help me get out of this fear? Thank you and bless you.

    • Kisses says:

      I’ve done my Saturn over my Libra AC and Saturn over my Scorpio sun. Best thing I can say to you, Carole, is feel the fear and do it anyway. :) If you really want to do it, you will. Take a deep breath and take the first step. That’s the hardest bit. Don’t worry about having the right name for your blog, it will come to you out of the blue. I have my best ideas whilst doing the dishes. 😉 Think of it this way – what is your fear for? So x, y, z doesn’t happen? Or so you don’t feel a, b, c? But by not taking action, what have you got, really? If it’s fear of failure, by not starting, haven’t you pre-empted that? Fears become self-fulfilling prophecies. Why not prophesy success. Go for it, you may as well. Don’t worry about it and just enjoy it. Follow your bliss. And don’t worry about your friends, let them nurture you for a change. If they’re not nurturing you, you know what to do. Has to go both ways. Good luck! :) (sorry, I know I’m not Nadia, but I liked your comment.)

    I reread description of this transit. Most amazing thing i have read. it explains why I have not been able to move forward on much these past few years. It took me 2 years to buy a computer! I still don’t have a printer. I am always budgeting as I live on little money from unemployment. It is nice to know what it is and not be so hard on myself and to know restrictions will lessen. One thing I think will help is to be less of a perfectionist(venus on midheaven). Now that is a hard one. Hope this lessens too.
    It has taken me years to finally be on the precipice of moving away from the old–friends, work, etc. Going to a new something this week. Sometimes you can get stuff on a spiritual path that has to be freed up a little. God Bless. Love to all and thank you Nadia for this description. How in the world did you know this?

  213. Santosh says:

    had Neptune square sun from mid- April’2012, lost my set job on 16th Apr’12. Lost my dog and driver in April12, my north node in scorpio and south node in Taurus, found job in July 12 which lost on 11th July13….I have Saturn in my fourth house Scorpio… Ascendant is Leo and I am 25th may 1958 born at 10.20 am at Gaya in India. Life seems to be burdensome and standstill as I am without a job….nothing is materialising despite my sincere attempts. Any suggestion?

  214. Lina says:

    I was born 10/25/1979 5:00 in pereira colombia. I have been going through very intense changes. Dont know too much about astrology but I am extremely curious. Some one told me that Saturn was on my sign.
    I feel like my world is falling apart.

    Thank you in advance, hope to get some answers.
