Saturn Square Sun Transit

Saturn Square Sun TransitSaturn 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 your energy, which is likely to be running low now anyway. A tactical retreat might be the best option. 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. I Jamie, don’t want to feel and be alone anymore. What should I expect from it?

    Thank you for all the job u do. Love to read your website.

    • You will not be alone because you have natal Venus sextile Jupiter in your birth chart. The September 1 solar eclipse is right on your Venus. You also have Venus trine AC and Jupiter sextile AC, mnore indicators of a fulfilling relationship. You should notice big developments in the coming months. Best to luck to you!

  2. Hi Jamie,
    Would appreciate if you could do an analysis for me. Born on 12 March 1977 at 4:10am in Pristina, Kosovo.
    Also, any advice on number 27 and what it means, as I see it all the time for the last 3 years?

    • You do not have Saturn square Sun transit until:

      06 Jan 2017
      24 Jul 2017 retrograde
      26 Sep 2017

      Moon conjunct Neptune in your chart is highly sensitive but square Mercury can cause confusion and mixed messages. This is the most critical part of your chart that you need to research and understand:

      Moon conjunct Neptune
      Moon square Mercury
      Mercury square Neptune

      • Finally had the time to look at this in more depth. Thank you so much, Jamie.
        Happy holidays and all the best in 2017!

        Do you have any thoughts on the constantly recurring no.27?

  3. Thank you so much Jamie. You made me feel happy and gratefull. Good luck to you as well.

  4. My b-day is March 2 1964, and it looks as though my whole world is dissolving around me, including my most important, lifelong relationship. Is that what Saturn square transit against the Sun means?

      • Thank you, Jamie. But what does that mean? Will my life get worse on Oct. 14? And when will this hard time end?

        • Read Saturn square Sun transit for what you are experiencing until October. It will get better after October. Read Natal Sun opposite Pluto to understand yourself. You always have Sun opposite Pluto but the power and control issues will be worse until October because of the Saturn transit.

    • Saturn square Sun transit:
      15 Feb 2017
      29 May 2017 Rx
      13 Nov 2017

      The September 16 lunar eclipse is a strong one for you because it lands on your Moon. Your Moon is directly opposite Sun and Uranus, so expect some changes in your emotional life and relationships with women. With these natal aspects you have to deal with these concerns your whole life but the next six months it will be more noticeable and you will have the chance to come to terms with it, understand this crazy dynamic a little better. You were born only 12 minutes before a full moon at 25°05′ Pisces.

      Sun conjunct Uranus
      Sun opposite Moon
      Moon opposite Uranus

  6. Hi Jamie, just found your site, and I’m hoping you can give me insight on what to expect from this transit. Things have been white-hot bad for me since April, 2016. Is it going to get worse? September 18, 1964. 06:20pm, Richmond, Va. USA. Thanks!

      • Thank you! I will look forward to some relief. Are the dates in your reply the dates to watch out for? And thanks again. You have a fantastic website.

        • Those are the dates that the Saturn transit climaxes so you should feel the influence of Saturn most strongly on those dates. Sometimes it can take a trigger by inner planet transits around those dates to result in a major event.

  7. My son has been having a tough time regards a career choice these past two years, would love to give him a time line for things getting easier 27 Feb 97 9.43am New Westminster BC Canada….love your site…thank you!

  8. so I’ve told him to hang in there until Christmas but he just wants to quit! I really want to help him through this as I think he’d regret quitting in the long run…or maybe this really isn’t what he’s supposed to be doing? Trying to be a supportive parent 🙂 Any insight would be greatly appreciated…thanks again for your time!

    • I have thought about this for a long time with three kids of my own. Generally I only follow my transits. If I am function well then I am doing the best for them. However, I sometimes look at their transit if they are unwell or struggling. but generally only for confirmation. We can only give encouragement really.

  9. I having a tough time in my career matters. I was graduated in 2013 but still no luck. My DOB is 13 march 1991. Please give me some advice.

  10. Hi Jamie
    My bday is 20 march 1977 born at 21.00 hours Sialkot Pakistan
    Please comment on my relationship marriage and career progression
    Every thing is just stuck

  11. Hi Jamie I was wondering if you could do an analysis for me please.

    14 March, 1976 @ 03:10 BOTAD, INDIA

    (ALSO MENTION Saturn Square Sun Transit AFFECT ME IN 2015-2016 OR 2016-2017)



      • My DOB is 14 March, 1976 @ 03:10 BOTAD, INDIA, actually i am passing through very hard time perticularly in finance, business and career related matter.
        Saturn is through passing in my 12th house, kindly let me know how long period will be tough?

  12. Hi, Jamie:

    Love your monthlies (all the more so because I’m born the same decan as you, so appreciate the empathy!) and your past two annuals have been so very accurate for me. Have read thru all the comments here but a bit extra nervous about Saturn Square Sun since I already feel that limiting shift from recent eclipse and because I was born with Saturn exactly conjunct my Sun in the 12th, 9/22/80, 8:43AM, Wyandotte (Wayne County), MI. Any thoughts? Thanks, K.

    • The positive out of your conjunction is the fixed star Markeb with the nature of Saturn and Jupiter. So Saturn works well as the student and teacher. Your spiritual journey enhanced by your Mercury at midpoint of Neptune trine North Node. Saturn square Sun is not until late 2017 and is accompanied by PLuto sextile Part of Fortune transit plus other goodies.

  13. Hello Jamie,

    After I read about Saturn square sun transit. I get nervous and worry especially I will start a new job on October 17 .

    Would you please help me and let me know if I will get effected . I was born on 9/14/1971.



  14. How the heck would this play out if sun 26 Pisces (so it will square it) and then (oppose) moon 29 Gemini…. ?

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

  16. 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

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

  18. 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..

  19. 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

  20. 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.

  21. 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

    • i am so sorry that you are experiencing difficulties, upheavals, emotional isolation. i started this reply thinking your blog was current to 4/2020. After typing my first sentence i noticed the date of your article was 3 yrs ago.which actually made me feel relief for you that your stated troubles are now in the past. Hopefully things improved greatly for you over these last 3 yrs. you did mention something that happened then and i think i can shed some light on. in reference to your trusted and loved friend.who unexpectedly betrayed you and broke relations with you. I had a similar experience and it can be very confusing and with no rationale as to why it really occurred. My story: I was close friends with a woman i met in college and our friendship continued for 12 yrs after we graduated. we had a tight bond of support and watched out for each other.We helped each other through minor financial tight spots. I went to her wedding. shared the joy when her son was born.and so much more. so the gist is that ours lives were knitted closely together for many years.Then one day while we were driving together she suddenly started to verbally assinate my character and informing me of countless personality flaws.that i think is everyone else’s fault.It was all done in a form of a verbal assault on me not in a manner of guiding constructive critisim. We pulled up to a stoplight, I quickly said. I don’t need to listen to this, and I jumped out of the car and walked home. I called her a few days later thinking the storm had past and she was like an iceberg and said she didn’t want to talk to me.Over several months I made a few attempts to open up the line of communication with her but she wasn’t interested, the door was closed! That was 1996 and to this day I don’t exist to her. Her husband friended on FB and have had a few exchanges and shared “likes”.. She has her own FB accnt but sometimes posts things on her husbands. A few times i made a postive comment or a like on her posts, nothing back from her.. Eventually the hurt from her dismissal went away but I remained baffled and void of any logical explanation as to why she cut me out. Then in 2015 i came across a you tube channel call Activism of Care.. The author presents it as a narrative not a video.His summations on our deteriorated society,and abnormal psychology, and personality disorders are the most accurate I have come across.He identifies,describes,all the confusion and discomfort we experience as a result of interacting in a world of people with personality disorders that has increased in numbers so dramactically that it’s almost the norm. In conclusion I can accurately make a judgement that both my friend and yours showed behavior specific to having a personality disorder. Unfortunately many have a covert aspect to their PD of which you won’t suspect anything. and sometimes it can take years before they pull the rug out from under you.But mind you, they will always pull the rug out from under you at one point or another. It’s their Modus operandus written in stone..Your friend and mine discarded us like a piece of garbage. Once they decided we were no longer needed or wanted in the lives they actually do believe we are discard forever..Normal people don’t function like that. Yes, it’s a fact that many people grow apart from each other and for many reasons.The difference compared to PD people,growing apart is not done with a vegence or hatred.Also, In a normal growing apart scenerio.if one should open the line of communication with the other person, more often than not their would be a reply back even if brief….I know this is long, Once I got started i wanted to provide info that could be vaulable for those who take this serious. I have been studying PD trends for 5 yrs now, even longer, I just didn’t have the vocubulary back then that defines and classifies these trends. .Sorry about all the spelling mistakes. I know the correct spelling for most of them if i gave them more thought

      • That was three years ago. but I’m glad you showed up. There are points for just appearing, as you mentioned. What is time? Valuable lesson Mr. Varleyh, you’re going to hafta look around. The Mans MO isn’t to show when she is ready, it’s when he is.

  22. 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.

  23. 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…

  24. 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.

  25. Hi.. i am 24 march 1987… Saturn square decan how much can affect my relationship… And june transit also affect?

  26. Hi Jamie,

    This is very interesting. According to this post Aries Decan 2 will feel it from Dec 2018 to Dec 2019 and according to your post on the eclipse 5 January Saturn will be squaring directly 15 degree of Aries and the thing is that Pluto will also be squaring (2 degrees) a natal Mercury in Aries (22/23) so out of curiosity how this could play for people with the Sun at 15 degrees? Would the Saturn square Sun make the eclipse harder for these people? Would they feel it for 6 months with intensity due to the eclipse? Can this bring a hard change on their employment status or health?
    Would be so grateful to hear your thoughts on this!

    • Good question Meli. The good news is that Pluto has moved away from the square now. I have seen the effects in my brother who has been living with me the last six months (Sun 18 degree of Libra) So both of you have definitely been through the worst already. Saturn square Sun will be easier to handle because you have already done so much hard work when Pluto was transforming your life a few years ago.

  27. This is pretty true. Right now I feel the whole community is against me. The Pluto transit marked the beginning of this increasing in ever degrees. These people work for the government and are basically getting payed to surveil and harass me. It’s really sick and evil and now they are starting to threaten me and go full force. I now decided that exposing their evil and doing to them, exactly what they do to me best. Normally I would freak out about this, but I feel way more disciplined now and way more determined than ever. The more they enjoy hurting me, the more determined I am.

  28. Hi Kat !
    Its tough being lunch for the lions in a collesium, but I believe it will eventually end up worse for the spectators that find it entertaining. I wish u the best.

  29. Hi Jamie. I hope you can give me an insight please? I am reading about Saturn square Sun.
    20.11.1989, Kherson, Ukraine.

  30. been going through it this year especially with covid & school its been very difficult, i feel like i have tried so hard and i know i have made so much progress but it just keeps throwing new challenges at me and im beginning to feel kind of discouraged.

  31. I have a grand cross involving in order of rotation Sun in Taurus, Mas in Leo, Neptune in Scorpio, Saturn in Aquarius, and the end. Gemini is rising.I only get reminded of what I can’t do given my disabled status. Every time Saturn goes through a fixed sign I get my limitations rubbed into my face by my own consciousness.Usually it’s a time when I have to find a new place to live, when I get these fixed sign transits. It’s not easy.

  32. Hi Jamie,

    Wondering if you might help me with insights into what I might expect when Saturn squares my sun in year 2024. I’ve recently had a supportive Saturn transit, but interestingly it’s been a heavy and trying year. Not without some benefits, though. Concerned if something “supportive” feels trying, then what might the square render?

    Birthdate: June 2, 1981; Brooksville, Florida, U.S.
    I was born in the morning hours.

  33. Hi, I left a toxic job and have found a new job which I join this month but I am unable to get out of the zone of my previous job. Everything that happened there bothers me. Will I be able to succeed in my new role. Date of Birth – 5/5/1981, time : 4am born in Kerala India
