Saturn Square Sun Transit

Saturn Square SunSaturn square Sun transit is one of the more challenging transits to deal with. It can represent a forced turning point where you feel pressured and burdened. It may feel like everything and everyone is against you during this tough time which can lead to feelings of isolation and discouragement.

Basically your sense of purpose and your goals are being challenged by Saturn in the form of bosses, teachers, parents or the government. You will have to face this adversity with patience and persistence and keep struggling so they don’t get the better of you.

If your intentions and goals are just ones and in your best interest, then this testing period can refine those plans and strengthen your resolve once you deal with the challenges. If, in the face of the tests and restrictions you find that it really is too hard and can see no way of succeeding, then this is the time to cut your losses and conserve you energy, which is likely to be running low now anyway, a tactical retreat. Or this transit may signal something in between, where compromise and concessions need to be made on your part.

Once this transit passes then your confidence and enthusiasm will grow again and you can start building new foundations with a better sense of purpose and more strength, having dealt with a very difficult and draining phase of life.

  1. Please tell me how the Saturn transit will affect me. Having a very tough time at work. DOB 9/22/76, 10am Iowa.

  2. Hello Jamie,

    First I’d like to point out that I love this page.
    Also.(haha) here comes the negative. This has been one of the hardest years I’ve had, and I blame Saturn. I was wondering if you could just explain to me on what in the world is happening and/or if it will go away by the end of this 2016. My DOB is 03/09/1991 7:09PM
    Thank You Jamie
    Much Grace

  3. Hi Jamie, my DOB is march 11, 1993. Canada. I have been having a hard time in my career, when will this end?

  4. Jaime. Saturn Square on Virgo Decan 2 for this whole year was extremely challenging. I hope you can go through well since it is your turn soon..

  5. Hello Jamie,

    I was just wondering if the Saturn square sun transit applies to ascendant signs or just sun signs? If it affects ascendant signs does it affect it differently than sun signs? I am a Pisces decan 2 born march 5th 1992 and my rising sign is either Virgo decan 2 or 3 (I lost my birth certificate that had the time of birth) but it is between 5:30 pm and 6:45 pm and I was born in Orange California. It’s been a very hard year and as much as I’ve learned and as many blessings as I’ve had and opportunities to grow it has still been really crippling. Thank you for you time!

    Warm Regards

  6. I’m a 3rd decan pisces 20th March and I feel this transit so bad and I have really bad time at work. Draining energy. Anything I will do or say is not good enough for bosses it’s seems they against me on all levels and that’s to the rest of the year

    • Commiserations, Diana. I’m in there with you. So please tell me: Have you, or might you, take a metaphorical punch at those swine bosses? I have. And I think I shall soon have to be picking myself up, pretty sore, out of the backwash. The world is on their side. Let’s hope this year flies. Take care.

  7. Would you believe it? I (third decan Pisces) have almost-exacts of transit Saturn square Sun and opposition Ascendant, and transit Pluto conjunct Moon. Transit Jupiter keeps squaring my Moon, and is coming back to do it again, to make me put on more weight, I suppose. Transit Uranus square Moon has passed recently, and, thank goodness, is not coming back.

    I have no social life left, and my most trusted and very loved friend broke relations with me totally unexpectedly, publicly, in the crudest possible way. (I could not have imagined him doing that to anyone, let aloe me.) I have never before been so hopelessly alone. There is nowhere to go home. Yet somehow, I have not lost the will to hang in there, press on, keep smiling in public, pretend I’m fine. This seems almost perverse, like kicking a dead horse: it cannot do any good. Even the brilliant, wonderfully optimistic Astro King has nothing better to say about transit Saturn square Sun than that it will all be fine once it’s passed (almost a whole year to go!). Surely one must get fed up sooner rather than later, and pack the lot it. One cannot be expected to go it alone, uphill, in such miserable circumstances. Of course, things can get worse, and no doubt will. 🙂

    • It’s a tough one hey! I am so glad I came here to check what condition my condition was in (Sun Square Asc THEN Sun conj Pluto conj SN crickey!) and it’s a relief sort of cause yep it’s been going since 2014 and it’s just got a bit go

      Til it starts with my Lib Uranus and the Jupes conj Merc 2018 but that cannot be worse than Asc and Suns! uuuuuurrrrrgggggg

      Work troubles TICK

      Soooo lucky my boss is a sweetheart but one co worker is a complete nightmare harassing and threatening me while I am surrounded by bludgers and sleepwalkers

      The boss knows he’s a softie and so does everyone else

  8. Hi Jamie,

    I’ve been reading lots about saturn transits since you release your 2017 yearly. somewhat in denial at first but definitely felt it this month. Can you please advise if its okay to change jobs this year? My dob sept 22/1982, born in the philippines, currently in toronto, canada.

  9. Jamie,I

    I wrote last October concerning my horrible circumstances, which have been going on since 2013 without pause. At that time I am Virgo 09/07/1952 11:10 PM Wilkes-Barre, PA, USA. At that time you said Dec 2016 was my last tango with Saturn and things should begin to pick up. There have been no improvements in finances, conditions at home, making any sort of progress and now, to make matters worse, I have problems with my health. No exaggeration — every day is a stinker. I thought 2017 was my year for financial growth? Never in my live have I experienced such a long stretch of bad luck. Thanks for any insight…

  10. How many times in a lifetime does Saturn square your Sun? Picses, March 13th. Can’t imagine going through this again. My work life is in absolute ashes as well as my finances. Very unforeseen.
