Saturn Conjunct Moon Transit

Saturn Conjunct Moon TransitSaturn conjunct Moon transit is a test of your emotional strength. Your feelings will likely 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, and even your home may 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 and 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. Making the phone calls and talking to a lawyer was hard.

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. You mustn’t be hard on yourself because there are probably enough people doing that already. Bad things happen to good people. I expect this most often occurs during Saturn conjunct Moon transits. Sometimes in life, 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. Every rose has its thorn.
    Just like every cowboy has a sad sad song.
    You can whine
    Or be thankful..

    • I still laugh every day even if Saturn is going back and forth messing with my emotions, weighing heavy. Bring it on! If you go through a Saturn phase, keep walking!

  2. My moon is at zero Pisces, in the final degrees of my 10th house. Everything you said is true – I suddenly find myself in this intense season of isolation. And suddenly I cannot get any work so I have some serious financial issues.

    I don’t care much for friends/frivolous socialising… contrary to how I was in the past. I ended relationships with a whole lot of people as 2022 drew to a close – for various reasons. I have two friends left (thank God for them) but they don’t live near me.

    My mom is helping me out a lot but she is pretty old and her health is taking strain. She can’t support me forever – and should not have to! I feel such guilt/shame.

    At the same time though, me being in crisis has opened the door for us to start communicating about deeper emotional issues. I typically held my mom at arms length before and harboured a lot of anger about how she treated me when I was younger. I went through life pretty much being the “perfect child”… until now.

    I am worried about losing my home and my credit score is about to be hammered. 😕 and suddenly struggling to find work after having had a lucrative career in the past!

    It really is an extreme year because I also have:

    Saturn square natal noth node/Chiron (7 degrees)
    Pluto (on MC) Square Natal Pluto (on DC)
    T.North Node conjunct natal ascendant and square MC
    Progressed moon conjunct IC
    Progressed sun and venus in 4th house (Leo) where venus is now retrograde!
    Neptune Square Natal Sun/Venus

    Emotionally, I am investing in doing some inner child healing work as I realised my circumstances are a manifestation of my trauma-based responses to how I manage life.

    Luckily, I have no partner/kids so I can just weather this horrible period of my life in isolation.

    • My moon is at one degree piscis, 5th house, and I can relate to almost everything you mention, Saturn is also opposing my natal 10th house Pluto and squaring my 8th house sun in Gemini. I’m literally broke after years of abundance. Work is failing and I’ve found that a few friendships are outgrown. All that I can take, but the heaviness that comes with it it’s hard to bear. We just have to bear with it and come out a lot stronger, We must not forget that Saturn is a blessing inviting to growth. Stay strong!
