Saturn Conjunct Moon Transit

Saturn Conjunct Moon TransitSaturn conjunct Moon transit is a test of your emotional strength. It is likely that your feelings will be hurt and you will probably cry. If you have been emotionally mature and responsible in the past you will still be subject to the cold hard hand of Saturn. However, you will suffer less emotional pain and bounce back quickly.

Transiting Saturn does not inhibit your emotions or make you uncaring. Saturn burdens your emotions with responsibility, guilt, shame, loss, separation, loneliness and depression. Your partner, mother, children, family in general and even your home may all somehow be involved in a cosmic conspiracy to make your life hard for a few weeks.

As an example, during my last Saturn conjunct Moon transit I broke up with my partner then was accused of domestic violence. I had to leave my home and was separated from my children. During the weeks of transiting Saturn conjunct natal Moon I did not even know if I would see my kids again. I was so depressed and alone but at some stage I realized I had to take responsibility. It was hard work to make the phone calls and talk to a lawyer.

I also had Pluto square Sun transit that year so my case is an extreme example. I eventually won full custody of my children but I always remember how sad and hopeless I felt for those three or four weeks when Saturn conjunct Moon transit was strongest. Time seemed to go so slowly.

You may feel guilty and somehow responsible for any emotional hardship you suffer. It is important that you are not hard on yourself because there are probably enough people doing that already. Bad things happen to good people. I expect this most often happens during Saturn conjunct Moon transits. There are times in life when it is OK to keep to yourself and feel sad. As the young heartbroken John Keats wrote:

A partner in your sorrow’s mysteries;
       For shade to shade will come too drowsily,
               And drown the wakeful anguish of the soul.

  1. I just had my birthday on the 13th, on that day I found my self caught in the middle of a violent hurricane. It was a family fight for survival. I heard that Saturn is in hard aspect to my natal Venus, but not sure. Any input is welcome.

  2. Wow! This explains a lot. I went to a family members wedding and it has taken me several days to recover from it. Not a fun experience. I have had overwhelming depression, confusion, and the part about feeling like your family is conspiring rang so true to me. I definitely feel like my strength is being tested. Sleeping seems like a more comfortable option.

  3. Hear you n feel you deeply, hope deep healing has occurred…
    Near the end of 2015, Saturn passed my moon, then returned to it later and station direct on it; at meantime, Saturn was squaring my natal Pluto. During that time I finally got to see in my life that some people can be so underhanded with nasty intentions. Sad, hopeless, anger n guilt are just few of many feelings. Got through several desperate situations at home n on the job, with absolutely self-discipline, thanks to transiting Saturn sextile natal Saturn – and true friends. Healing started when those rotten people ended up reaping what they sow.

  4. Fired an EVIL ABUSIVE AND HYPOCRITICAL BOSS. FREE AT LAST! Wisdom: in order to be enslaved, you also have to be under the delusion that the relationship was worthwhile. Time ALWAYS REVEALS THE TRUTH. Accepted in gratitude and humility. Thank you Jamie!

  5. Well i have been trying to get out of a toxic work situation for 7 years now (boss and co-workers). Just had an interview on the 18th which i truly believe was the best interview i’ve ever had – and for a position that i would be perfect for. I thought i did extremely well…………and unfortunately i did not get the position. I spent all day and night yesterday crying. Would really like to see something positive on the career front. I am 2.5 years away from retiring with an unreduced pension (early retirement) so leaving the government simply is NOT a possibility. I would lose over a quarter of a million dollars if i left early. Jamie – can you give me any good news at all ?? (DOB is Mar. 8th, 1960, Ontario Canada)

    • @Vicky wow…lady you don’t know how good you have it. I’m 56 single female that’s ruined her work history trying to manage elderly sick dying parents for the past 10 years. I got nothing now but low paying retail jobs ($9.25 hour) due to ageism and my solid executive legal assistant experience being a decade back. Can’t afford healthcare, rents are high. So, wow you will have a Quarter of a million $250,000.000 in retirement and you cry about 2.5 years. Shame on you lady. Make me kinda sick. Jamie give this woman some free advice! ????????????

      • @Holly – you missed the point – which is i can’t quit. The advice i usually get is “quit your toxic job”. And, as a (former) executive legal assistant i would have expected that you would at least be able to spell my name correctly. I, too, am well educated at the post-graduate level and have years of experience and a wealth of knowledge. I am not crying about the job – i am frustrated that i am stuck in a position that i have been trying to leave for some time because of the toxicity.

        • @Holly And, I, too have had to care for my elderly parents and now my elderly in-laws. Don’t judge when you don’t know the full story.

        • I don’t care if I spelled your name right lady. You still don’t get it and never will. All me me me cry cry another 2 years you’ll be able to retire and never worry about being homeless having no healthcare to my hand skipping to the bank with quarter million. You might consider paying Jamie To do your chart hun. You still make me sick. ????

          • @Holly – i hope you find the peace you so desperately crave. Clearly your strategy of lashing out in an angry, sarcastic manner and blaming others for your lack of success isn’t getting you anywhere. You really should do something about your anger issues. I send you many blessings and peace.

  6. What do you mean “accused of domestic violence”? I’d like to know more about what occurred. I’m trying to learn about astrology and I have to hear about this disturbing little anecdote… um. I certainly hope you weren’t violent with your ex wife. Disgusting.

  7. I have transit Saturn exactly conjunct my natal moon in the 1st house now. Along with my Venus and mercury return 2nd house. Transit Neptune is conjunct my natal sun opposite natal Saturn/Jupiter conjunction. Transit Uranus is opposite my natal midheaven conjunct spica. 8th house North node return approaching. I don’t know what any of this means so I’m here slowly dissecting it. Besides that I have no clue what’s going on! I always thought my chart was boring but now it’s getting interesting 😀 thanks for this information!

  8. I currently have the same transits as you had the extreme case, Jamie. Pluto transit square my sun and natal Saturn conjunct transit moon. My boyfriend who ghosted me ten months ago came back to ask for forgiveness, only to tell me that he is bound to marry as his parents asked of him and he did not want to disappoint them. I took this in a very mature manner and I am very proud of myself, but it still very hard. I feel so lonely and empty even if bounced back very fast.

  9. i am here because i want to read what the full moon pisces transit means for me. the moon is transiting my first house now and about to fall on my saturn at 0° pisces and I just cant stop crying

  10. This full moon is conjunct my natal Venus In my 2nd house. Saturn Pluto and mars in my first. This is a breakthrough time. You gotta to feel it to heal it. You’re not alone. It’s a blessing in disguise so to speak right now. Mars goes direct Monday just hold on. I too couldn’t stop crying earlier. Had a major meltdown over a painful karmic lesson I thought I’d mostly healed and have been working on so long very long. Extreme psychological projections and triggers are there to free you and are at their peak. It’s another layer to breakdown all that’s restricting you from accessing the true love all around you that the universe is showering you with and that you are. Be open to receive the blessings of this magical Pisces full moon. I hope this helps.

  11. Oh, heck! I’m sitting here crying like an idiot about family crises, etc. Transit Saturn is soon to conjunct my Moon. But I’ve no family left. Even a crisis or conspiracy would be good, if I could have them back, or even just one of them. It’s probably impossible for me to feel more lonely, unloved, etc. So what can this Saturn-to-Moon bring me? (DOB 19 March 1944)

    • I would be a part of your family Sophie. I live off of crises, and right now I cannot even get one from another nor conjure one up myself, and even so, not big enough to get myself out of my own self-isolated place/space right now. But today I read that it is all due to Saturn and Pluto being “all up in my ass” (in my 7th house astrologically speaking:) AND their awful (yet transformative and all-good!) aspects to my natal Sun will not be over until 2020! My advice is focus on your long-term transits if you are looking for the “big answers” and to the Moon for a daily bit of whatever. You are ALIVE and wow! check that out and go with the flow, up and down, and know that it ain’t over ’til its over, and that I (GOD) LOVES YOU!
