Saturn Square Neptune Natal and Transit

Saturn Square Neptune 2015Saturn square Neptune natal creates tests and challenges in achieving your hopes and dreams. These tests and challenges can be psychological in the form of guilt, fears, and anxieties. You may also face delays and restrictions from other people or events in your life.

This is a karmic aspect so you do experience some hardships in order to raise your consciousness and liberate yourself of some negative karma. Time, self-discipline, patience, and persistence will all help in overcoming any fears and lead to the achievement of your hopes and dreams. Neptune governs creative and artistic pursuits such as music, dance, and film. I was surprised to find so much creative talent among celebrities with this aspect very tight in their charts. There is obviously real potential in drawing on some life lessons to help in creative self-expression.

Fear, paranoia, and addictions are some things to avoid with this aspect. It may appear that you have to deal with more disappointment or tragedy than most others. These dark experiences will give you all the life experience and determination you need. Seeking out further adventure in the dark side though drugs or other forms of self-abuse is not needed. You will be more vulnerable than most to getting stuck in the darkness and not being able to crawl your way out. There is no point in beating yourself up about things that happened in the long past. Once you forgive yourself then others will too.

Saturn Square Neptune Transit

Saturn square Neptune transit can bring some scary experiences with the darker side of life. Disappointment or setbacks now are more likely to extend or deepen periods of grief or depression that we all experience from hardships. Even without hardship being placed upon you, it is likely that psychological fears or paranoia may overwhelm you leading to uncertainty. Either way, you may end up questioning whether you really can achieve those things you have hoped and dreamed of.

There are some things you should avoid now so you don’t increase the odds of worry and disappointment. Drugs would certainly escalate any psychological problems right now. You should also stay away from conspiracy theories, cults, or any schemes that seem too good to be true.

The aim of this challenging transit is to liberate yourself of fear, guilt, and worry. Patience, focusing on the basics, expressing yourself creatively through dance or music, will all help to raise your consciousness. You should take a more practical and defensive approach to life and not expect great advances at this time.

It is possible that the source of your worry is guilt. It may be difficult to pinpoint why you feel guilt as it could be related to past life experiences. It is possible that you may experience strange health symptoms that are difficult to diagnose. It is not paranoia if it turns out to be real, so this is a good time for a check-up. This will also help a good deal in eliminating worry and fears that can eat away at your self-confidence during this transit.

  1. Val Ross- Hi Jamie, I’m going through my 2nd Saturn Return and seem to be affected by the Saturn/Neptune Square more than I expected so I wondered how long this square will last for? I’m very grateful for all the good in my life but having a complete nightmare regarding employment and financial security. Can you see this changing for me soon? I went for my dream job recently but wasn’t successful. Born on 5/8/1957 at 1.10pm in Inverness Scotland.
    Thank you ????

  2. Hi Jamie, I just wanted to give you a little FYI regarding my September 10th Saturn/Neptune transit. My birth date is March 4, 1975. I went for a long bike ride even though the weather was terrible. I was certainly deluding myself about it being a good bike riding day. I got bored at an event I was required to go to and left early. I got a little more tipsy than I should have mid-afternoon, took a nap, and ended up having insomnia the day after the transit. I also dwelt on someone who used to be in my life but no longer is for much of the day. This kind of stuff seems par for the course for this transit. Hope this helps. Paul

  3. It feels like this transit won’t ever end. They are squaring each other from my IC and DC. I feel it trying to destroy my spirit through many disguises. This one has hit the core of my being extremely hard. I’m curious to see what will come out of all of this suffering.

    • Yes, by the very nature of these planets it had\s been drawn out ab\nd painful for many of us. It IS easing up now.

  4. Hello Jamie
    I have Saturn transiting my sun (born 20 Dec 1964 at 1:05 in the morning). Since December 2015 I’ve had lung problems (post-flu). I’ve had scans that show my bronchial tubes have narrowed a bit so am on asthma medication. However, I’ve always been very healthy (apart from having horrible chesty flu every December for the last 6 years, and when I was a child!) I also have lots of transiting planets in (or about to enter my 12th house :-/). I have natal sun conjunct mercury opposite north node in 3rd house. Is any of this significant or could this ongoing illness be due to my Saturn transit (and Chiron return)? Thanks for any enlightenment.

    • Hi Kate, when you give time of birth you also need to give place of birth. So without knowing your ASc and exact Moon, I don’t see Saturn square Neptune having affected you. Lungs are rules in medical astrology by the fixed stars from about 15 Gemini to 20 Cancer, so maybe related to natal Moon. Check you chart against the list of fixed stars.

  5. Hello Jamie
    Thank you for this info – I’ll look at my natal moon. Sorry I forgot birth place – it is Hatfield, Hertfordshire, UK.
    Many thanks!

    • This is a good transit for you intuition:

  6. This transit has been the antithesis of freedom for me and all year i’ve been mentally tormented by men and the subject of love, or more like anti-love. I’ve been conflicted between love and anti-love all year long. It has left me asking myself some very ugly questions.

  7. Good morning Jamie, great gratitude for all of your shared work with astrology! Thank you!
    I have Saturn square Neptune in my natal and now a transit of Saturn conjunct my Neptune in the 6th, Saturn transit squaring my natal Saturn and soon Saturn approaching my 7th house cusp. I’d love any nuggets of advice or notes from you as to how to juice the most out of this Saturn saturated time. And perhaps when I might expect a bit of relief.. ; )
    Thank you kindly Jamie!

  8. Oops! here is my birth info: 03/03/1980 denver, colorado 11:34 in the morning.
    Thank you!

  9. I had Saturn transiting my 6th house in opposition to Neptune in the 12th.back in the day. A most difficult year ever for me as I was ill and temporarily separated from my children. I had left an abusive spouse but had to give up all my home, friends, pet and personal belongings and move across country with my children. There is never a clear picture ahead for one when Neptune clouds the present and future picture. It was a year I never wish to repeat but guilt in leaving my pet still haunts me. However, with work and patience one can overcome a messy situation and look back realizing one can overcome. Saturn gives work and responsibility and Neptune gives one faith and the spirit to carry on.

  10. Last June I lost my husband of 30 years..i am still reeling with grief and shock..I’m just treading water, and I was just told I have a Saturn square Neptune from feb 2019 to Nov. 2019. I don’t usually ask such questions..but the thought of any more heaviness feels almost more than I can handle. Could you possibly give me any details that might be positive and helpful about this transit. Thank-you so much Mimi

  11. Mimi, I have it in my natal chart and can suggest, even if you aren’t aware of having artistic ability, try. My first couple pieces were pretty bad but I found latent talent and ability that added to my life greatly. I began painting at a very low point in my own life without any training or even awareness that I could. Artistic expression may come in the form of community theatre or chorus, playing an instrument or producing tangible works by hand, or in cooking. Food is also an art. What you are feeling in your soul can be transmuted. These expressive forms do provide a respite from thoughts and inner dialogue as well as becoming something beautiful or resonant. I wish you all the best.

  12. Is this article talking about transit Saturn square natal Neptune?
    I see from the list below it that they may be talking about Saturn
    square Neptune at a present, specific moment.

  13. During 2020, Have transit Saturn in 4th house Capricorn, square natal Neptune in first in Scorpio. Also, this dances with Transit Neptune in 6th square Sun in 3rd. It’s HELL. I hate Hard Neptune… at worst it dissolves life and purpose.

  14. I have Sun in 12th house opposite Neptune in 6th. A Saturn transit in Aquarius is squaring both those planets from the midheaven. What should I do not to foul up too badly?

  15. Hi Jamie, How come there is a lack of the other way around aspect description. For example i am looking for Neptune square natal Saturn, but this description which is the only one available is the Saturn squaring natal Neptune but there isn’t one that’s the opposite way around?.

    Should I consider Saturn square Neptune the same as the aspect of transit Neptune squaring natal Saturn? Thank You and keep up the great work! This is my main astrology description site that I use. Love it!

    • Hi Harris. I am slowly getting to write all such transits. But it will be somewhat similar to the other way around.
