Moon Opposite Saturn Natal and Transit

  • 187

Moon Opposite Saturn TransitMoon opposite Saturn in the natal chart is one of the most challenging aspects because it can make you feel sad and lonely. What you want most of all is the emotional nourishment of a supportive intimate relationship. However, there are many obstacles in your way to experience that feeling of being loved and valued.

As with all Moon aspects your relationship with your mother is critical in determining how successful your adult relationships are. She may have been too strict, emotionally cold, suffered an illness or not been there for you. The more emotional support you received when growing up then the easier time you will have in forming healthy emotional relationships as an adult.

It is likely that you have a great deal of difficulty sharing your emotions and others may think you are emotionally distant, boring or just don’t care. Lack of attention and love from others can make you feel isolated and lonely. This can lead to shyness, guilt and difficulty finding being able to let go and have fun. If bad moods turn into depression then medical help should be sought.

Without other more outgoing or happy influences in your chat you may have a very serious nature and concern yourself only with practical matters. A lot of hard work is needed to be comfortable showing your emotions. Conscious realization and admission of this problem is the first step.

You may need to overcome a fear of getting close to people. It might be easier trying to make friends with much older or younger people to start with. You do have feelings like everyone else but have to overcome barriers and restriction to expose them. Hard work, practice and patience will help you loosen up and experience more enduring close relationships as you age.

Moon Opposite Saturn Transit

Transiting Moon opposite Saturn makes you feel sad, bored or lonely. Difficulty in sharing your emotions can lead to distance in relationships. Conscious awareness of this depressing influence will help you avoid longer term serious consequences such a separation simply because of a bad mood.

This is not a good time for socializing as people may find you cold or distant. A morbid outlook on life is possible and you are likely to see the worst in other people and situations. While a Moon transit last only a few hours, moon phases pose a more serious problem and you will need to work hard to avoid your negative feelings manifesting as depression, loss or disappointment.

Relationships, especially with women, are most often affected. You could feel burdened or guilty about responsibilities for someone much older or younger than you, like a child or grandchild, parent or grandparent.

You will probably be feeling sorry for yourself but the worst thing to do right now is bring others down by guilt tripping or moping around them. You are not that much fun to be around so it may be better to stay in your room and accept that periodic melancholia is a natural part of life.

This interpretation for Moon opposite Saturn transit can be read for a lunar eclipse or full moon opposite Saturn.

  1. Jamie, because a moon represents a woman in a man’a chart, have you ever ever seen a man get into a relationship that is stable with a woman with Saturn transit opposing natal moon? I imagine that comes with increased responsibility ..

    • Not from Memory but of course it is possible. Yes, responsibility but also perhaps a marked age difference of daddy issues. You could act like a father figure or teacher. But there may also be some seriousness or heavy issues involved, or emotional sadness.

      • What is the IC (tr. Saturn) opposing natal moon on MC mean? It’s happening for 3rd Decan geminis this year (mine is the moon) but what is neat is that Uranus and Jupiter are making good aspects to my moon as well

  2. Exactly the same question! I have Moon 28 degrees Gemini. Who is the winner of this transit battle? Because Uranus and Jupiter will sextile/trine Gemini moons but Saturn is hammering us until the Christmas time in 2017.

    • I’ve been feeling it as two steps forward, one step back kind of experience. With everything being just “okay”. So when I get/feel something really great – I get something really bad that happens so I’m sitting at even. I think it’s a tie. Nobody is winning in this battle.

  3. I have a big problem with this interpretation of a mother being cold, restrictive or emotionally unavailable.
    One of my daughters has this aspect. I have found that she is the distant one as she matured. She has 3 slow moving retrogrades Neptune Uranus and Pluto born May 1973 that may be playing a role here.

    As a stay at home mother and an artist I was a devoted loving mother to 2 daughters who gave them loads of room for imagination through play, theatre, dress up and exposure to other cultures in our city. But I noticed she appeared introverted occasionally and didn’t enjoy my touch. Her school pictures were very telling. She appeared very unhappy in some. Although she was a gifted child and was always placed in an enrichment program.
    Her father was a workaholic architect and we were often left alone in our threesome. That may have been more of an influence. Growing up she never had strong female friendships, only a strong bond with a male friend.

      • That’s great Jamie…to hear from you. To further illustrate my feelings on the subject…I would like to add that I have moon in Sagittarius as does my daughter in question. And we both have moon conjunct the ascendant in Sagittarius.

        She is Sun Mercury conjunct Alcyone I discovered and after an art career like myself turned to gestalt therapy and is now an excellent Gestalt Therapist in Minfulness and a Buddhist. Never married and child free, but wished now, she had a child. I think she qualifies for a ‘late bloomer’ in many ways. I also think she may feel pain from a former life, although I myself do not believe in reincarnation. I remain open.

        Cheers, Jamie

  4. Hi Jamie, I do have this aspect natally although moon is at 2.32Aries and Saturn 27 Virgo .
    My concern is that the new moon on 17 March will be in exact opposition to natal Saturn so I was wonder how it could play, would this new moon be beneficial despite the activation of moon-Saturn opposition? Thanks!

    • Because of the orbs I would just focus on new moon opposite Saturn. The new moon is too far from your Moon to make much of an impact. Sure it activates your opposition but I would read up on Sun opposite Saturn transit to get an idea of what to expect and how to work with it.

      • Thank you Jamie! It’s good to know more about the Sun opposite Saturn.
        I know you do not work with houses, although I noticed this energy in terms of payments due for work done. Maybe because my Saturn is at the end of my 2nd house and the sun was on the 8th and it was due to a female client (moon?) .It was indeed placing limiting conditions on my life due to the actions of other people or circumstances that have put barriers on my progress. I handled it and I think I overcame the situation but it was hard. Would I feel this energy until the opposite full moon in Virgo? Thanks!

  5. Hey Jamie, what if a solar return of Sun conjunct Venus conjunct Mars all trine to Uranus. BUT you have natal moon opposite Saturn and in the same solar return as mentioned above. Will I be happy intimately?
