Venus Conjunct Saturn Natal and Transit

Venus Conjunct Saturn TransitVenus conjunct Saturn in the natal chart makes you a very loyal and caring person but you can have trouble showing it. This can lead to a degree of delay and restraint in forming close relationships. You long for love and affection but there just seems to be so many impediments to achieving this. Life will throw up some painful experiences in order for you to learn how to love yourself and love others.

This can be a karmic aspect, especially if either Venus or Saturn are retrograde. In such cases, people who knew in previous lives that felt betrayed or hurt by you, will seek you out in this life in order to teach you a lesson and balance things out. It is also possible that people who hurt you in previous incarnations, will come back with love to give and valuable lessons to teach. Once you have reached a certain evolutionary point in your life, hardship and sorrow will give way to loving and lasting relationships.

This aspect can be especially difficult while growing up. Lack of self-love or self-respect is usually the main reason for any shyness or inability to maintain close relationships. This would be made much worse if parents or teachers were hard on you. You may have faced privation, meanness, withdrawal of love and affection, or absence, especially from your father. Abuse is also possible, but the main point is that you may have felt unloved and not valued by others.

Rejection, isolation and loneliness exacerbate these difficulties as you miss out on developing social and personal interaction skills. Feeling awkward in social situations is common, and you would most likely prefer mixing with only one person or a very small number of at people at any one time.

The more you feel bad about yourself, the more people will avoid you. Imagine that you are wearing a sign around your neck that say “unlovable”. Your karmic lesson this life is to learn to love yourself so that others can love you. You may experience periods of isolation in between relationships. Breakups and divorce are common for this aspect.

Difficult Venus-Saturn aspects are generally considered the most challenging of all natal aspects by the majority of astrologers. It feels worse because it is love that most people want in this life, and you are deprived of that for some time. While young, you may prefer the company of more serious or older people. When older, you may prefer a younger partner.

Patience, hard work and determination will, however, be rewarded, as is the case with any difficult Saturn aspect. The more you learn to accept and love yourself then the more you are able to express your love and affection. Self respect brings respect from others and you will earn the love and loyalty you deserve.

The same conditions as experienced in your love life can also apply to your finances. The lesson here is to learn the value of money and how to keep enough of it to live on. Eventually, as with love, you will learn to hold onto it and not experience periods or restraint or poverty. Saving and investing will bring you the stability and security you seek.

Venus Conjunct Saturn Transit

Transiting Venus conjunct Saturn can bring isolation, sadness and privation. You will find it difficult to express love and affection, but easy to be cold and mean. Relationships suffer the most with this transit but you can also experience some financial hardship at this time.

An existing relationship may be tested by distance or separation, and a general inability to connect at the emotional level. Issues involving guilt or disloyalty may be the source of the problem. A healthy relationship will easily pass this test, and may in fact lead to greater commitment.

A love relationship on shaky grounds may not last, but generally, there would need to be other indicators in your chart or theirs. Any sadness or painful experiences endured now will be karmic lessons that lead to greater understanding  about mutual love and respect or loyalty. Women especially, are more subject to suffer domestic violence.

New romance is possible now but would not be that romantic at all. It would likely be based on practical considerations and may involve your career. A noticeable age difference is also possible. This is not a good time for partying as you will generally feel depressed and more concerned with matters of a serious matters.

Money may be tight and this would be a good time to learn to budget properly so you reduce the risk of running short in the future. Starting a savings plan would be a good idea now.

  1. What happens when you have this transit opposing chiron and conjunct uranus(Chiron at 14 Gemini and Uranus at 14 Sagi)?

    • Hi Maria. So many of our generation have Chiron opposite Uranus it can be hard to tell what it means. Just with your Uranus I would think some frustration at your creativity or independence being blocked somehow.

  2. Hi Jamie, I would appreciate if you could please help me to know what to expect with this Venus and Saturn conjunction? Let’s just say it’s been a really crazy year or so and I’m really trying to find hope. I am also curious on the tests you mentioned that would have to be passed, when would it be known if I passed or not? I’m still learning how to give out all my info in the way others make it seem so easy…lol…I’m a Sagittarius (12/2/1982 7:23am Plano, TX). It’s been really really really hard this past year and I’m starting to see maybe some things getting better and then something else happens. Like finally finding a job that I really like, but still not working enough to pay bills. It’s been so hard on my relationship this past year and the sad part is that there is nothing wrong with our relationship except that I have had a hard time with finding and keeping a job and enough money and to make my boyfriend happy by being able to move out of his place and live on my own. I’ve almost just given up on everything and embrace the apathy more and become homeless by choice. It’s been hard also since none of my family will help me either. My boyfriend has been the only person in my life that’s here for me and I’m worried about this conjunction. Any advice would be greatly appreciated and thank you for the wonderful article.

  3. I just discovered that during the last venus conjunct saturn in january, my (ex)boyfriend and i seperated.
    (actually quite like in the text above! :/ ) – it was hard afterwards – of course
    I’m also a Sagg.
    Saturn is conjunct my Sun for the moment so i’m a bit anxious what it will give now on relationshiplevel.
    I’m also having Pluto conjunct my moon so it wont make things easier.
    Best of luck to you Misty
    All Sagg’s are in this together. We will get through 😉

    • Thank you Eleanor, and my deepest sympathies to you on your separation and hardships.

  4. Hi, Misti all your worries and hardship you had suffered as a Sagittarius native with Saturn paying a long visit to your sun sign have an explanation: Saturn enters the sign of Sagittarius on December 23rd, 2014.

    Saturn will occupy the sign of Sagittarius from December 23, 2014 to June 14, 2015; and then finishes up its transit from September 17, 2015 to December 20, 2017.

    Saturn takes about 28-29 years to come full circle, and thus spends on average close to 2-1/2 years in a sign. Seek further information on Internet and you will be shocked by what you’ll find out. Cheers

    • Thank you Maria del Carmen, I have been reading through so much of the lack of joy that is Saturn. I have so many planets together in my 1st and 12th natal houses and it has been definitely been crazy. It has seemed that every time I think that the worst is over I find out something new that I hadn’t yet learned about or had the time to read into more because there was always something else going on that I was trying to figure out. I’ve only recently in the past year or so really delved deeper into learning more. It has definitely been worth it to study so much into astrology and understand wtf is going on. These crazy planets have definitely changed so much in my life and I’m really trying to stay positive and wait for it supposedly and hopefully change for the better. Thank you for your help!

  5. Oh my Jamie…I was going to meet a new guy this day and I just cancelled on reading this post!!
    I see he has his Saturn Conjunct my Venus exact in libra. Am I being visited by him due to some karmic debt from a former life, I wonder?? We are both Virgos…and I have never dated one…nor him. Be well.

  6. My 11yr old son has this transit conj his H9 natal Moon ryt nw..and I notice his behaviour is preferring to be socially isolated and somewhat happy with it and doing his “own” thing..if that makes sense.Also he is “picking” on his younger sibling which irritates me the most..I end up disciplining/growling him when I’d rather not..I like a peaceful home at all times (H4 Libra).Iv also just been preapproved for a new home loan and will be receiving more income (2 boarders).This conj is in my H6 trines my MC.Im starting a new healthy diet/regime on this Scorpi NM (my Pluto is in Virgo..feeling a very powerful urge to diet and exercise like a trojan since Scorpio rules my H5 & 6).Saturn will conj my Desc and oppose my Asc at Xmas ths year..when I need it th most to help with the temptation to overeat at Xmas dinner.Great!

  7. I have Venus at 18 degree LEO and Saturn at 27 degree LEO both in my 7th house as I am an aquarius asc…I turned 38 on 1st July, never been married…and so far love has been extremely painful and disappointing..
    What more to expect from this 9 degree apart conj between these 2 planets ? will appreciate some guidance

  8. Hi Jamie. I met someone new on the day of the Venus-Saturn conjunction. Even though these are early days, is this a good sign? I have a natal Venus-Saturn opposition, if that matters…

  9. I find your interpretation troubling. The assumption that those of us with this placement do not love ourselves enough is horse@$#! Sometimes a person is merely stuck. They may not have been taught how to avoid predatory people so to keep oneself safe they remove themselves or avoid relationships. The people surrounding them are either abusive, careless or uncaring. Who wants to seek any of them? You may have gotten hurt when younger but no one was there to explain to you how predators work. So one had to learn the hard way and it took time to learn the truth. That doesn’t mean you don’t love yourself. It probably means you love yourself more. People that don’t love themselves accept their abuse and participates in the abuse. A person with self love will fight back. Will keep unto themselves until they are safe. Will look for safe people. Self preservation is the first law in humanity. Once one is able to see the difference between a predator and a socialized person, one can relax. Don’t confuse thr fake “science” of psychology with what really happens. It sounds like you blame the “victim” for their own attack.

    • The the basis of much astrology is that you won the natal aspect. Events and relationship that manifest in your life as a result of your planetary asepcts. Venus Saturn contacts are the most challenging of all aspects. My interetation is based on my own chart (Mercury and Venus opposite Saturn), two wives this hard Venus Saturn aspects and countless clients who at some stage hated themselves.

  10. Hi Jamie! What about Venus sesqui-quadrate Saturn? I actually never even knew I had a Venus/Saturn aspect but me & someone I dated both have this and I saw a LOT of myself in him in sort of bad timing & feeling like you have to push folks away. Is it as tough as the classic hard aspects? (We both have had many serial relationships) but never married. Both in mid & late 40s.

  11. WOW! I’m amazed!
    Truthfully spot-on! Hahaha..
    I’ve had (just now) immense realizations on saturn conj venus (9th scorpio with south node on there too not conj)
    And yes it is extremely true to the core. All of the things said on saturn conj venus. Deprived of it and abandoned. Sad truthfully.. but I see it now.
    I did.. not knew how to love since I loved based on ideals and not love.. as well as lack of self respect i.e. self love
