Venus Conjunct Saturn Natal and Transit

Venus Conjunct Saturn TransitVenus conjunct Saturn natal 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 seem 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 is 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 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 says “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 with 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

Venus conjunct Saturn transit 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 a greater understanding of mutual love and respect or loyalty. Women especially are more subject to suffer domestic violence.

A 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 nature.

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. Hi Jamie:

    Please tell me that this aspect is not as bad as it sounds…. I am a Libra Sun with Venus in 11º Sagittarius which means that I will have Saturn hitting my Venus 3 times in 2016 with the first one near this global aspect on January and the other two around the Saturn Neptune squares on June and September…

    Love your page,


    • Sorry Anna, but Venus-Saturn aspects and transits are the hardest of all in my opinion, and that of many other astrologers. I have Venus opposite Saturn in my chart. One thing about Saturn though, it does get better with age.

      • Hi Jamie, I noticed that there’s no Venus opposite Saturn aspect listed. I have this in my natal chart as well (with Saturn retrograde, sigh) and would love to know more about it as I’ve had quite a hard time for many years now. Thanks!

        • I will get to all the aspects as they come around in the sky. I have exactly the same plus with Mercury on Venus. Saturn retrograde gets better with age.

      • I too have Venus conjunct Saturn… I belong to the Capricorn Stellium generation, so actually I have a whole six planets conjunct there. Glad to hear that it gets better with age!

        • And the more dutiful, respectful and responsible you are the quicker it turns around. I especially noticed that paying off debts and keeping on top of all matters makes a big difference.

    • The bad thing is, Venus is your ruler, so you’re likely to feel this and there’s no way you can get away from it. The good thing is, there’s a chance this may sextile your Sun, which is not that bad. By playing your cards right, you may actually gain something, perhaps by dating an older man, a Capricorn, your boss or a man in uniform. Be extra careful with your finances, stop fooling around in love, get real. If you’re already in a relationship, this might be a good time to make it official, perhaps by picking a wedding date. The squares to Neptune call for extreme caution, unless you like marrying a drunk, an addict or a crazy guy. Believe in your man, yeah, but don’t believe just anything. In the very best case, you may find an older, well established man, who supports you all the way, protects you against anything, will go anywhere with you and will stay with you forever, or till death do you part.

      I have Venus at 13 Sag, by the way, I’m a Capricorn, this is obviously my Venus return too and it’s a hard one. To make things worse, this is my 2nd house, so it’s a double whammy. No, it doesn’t feel good at all, it’s a very lonely and depressive transit, which makes all your relationship failures come back to haunt you. I have nothing but relationship failures, not one single real success, so my life is all about ghosts of relationships past, plus of course the ones that might have been, but never became a thing. My finances are a joke, of course. If it’s any consolation to you, things might be worse for you. You might have one Saturn and two Venuses squaring Pluto/Uranus in Virgo, squaring Chiron/Vesta/T-Atropos in Pisces and opposing Atropos in Gemini. I have that permanently. For you, this is a mean transit, for me it’s the culmination of a misery generating process that never ends.

    • Yes, same as with most transits of fast moving planets like Venus to slow moving ones like Saturn. Retrograde motion can change things like with Mercury square Mars this week.

      • Thanks Jaime, facinating read… As always. Good to know this will only be felt for a day.. Now I’ll duck & try to saty out of sight… Ha! Ha 🙂
        Blessings from the other side of earth, Coliberi

  2. Hi Jamie, in my natal chart ,I have my retro venus 26:31 conjunct my direct saturn 25:10 in aries. do you think this transit will dubble the situation 🙁

    • Maybe not double but it should be stronger for you. There is a long held belief in astrology that a particular transit in the sky will more strongly affect those with the same natal aspect. Fixed star Al Pherg improves your conjunction nicely.

  3. Jamie, I so enjoy your writing. Thank you for doing all that you do. I have Saturn 5 degrees Taurus conjunct my Venus at 9 degrees Taurus. And I have two questions about that. One: will this transit affect me more adversely as the current Venus and Saturn Transit are inconjunct my natal pairing? And secondly, I was in a relationship on and off with a woman for the last 6 years who’s sun/moon midpoint fell at 7 degrees Taurus. Her natal Saturn/ Venus conjunction is conjunct mine but in Aries. We parted recently on uncertain to bad terms. This relationship has felt like no other I have ever had in 46 years of life and I am not sure what to do about it. Could I perhaps anticipate a renewal of it based on these aspects?

    • Thanks Kurt, you will feel it more strongly because you have the same aspect in your natal chart. And stronger still because of the quincunx. Possibly more adversely depending on how well you have been attending to your duties and obligations. I’m confused about the synastry, you say conjunction is conjunct your, yet in Aries? I would guess there is more to come if you do have a strong link in synastry because Saturn can act like glue in such cases.

      • Thank YOU Jamie. Yes the conjunctions are as follows: Her Saturn 25 degrees and Venus 26 degrees Aries. My IC at 29 degrees Aries. My Saturn at 5 and Venus 9 degrees Taurus. Her Sun/moon midpoint at 7 degrees Taurus. Its intense.

  4. Happy new year Jamie and Astrology King:

    What happens when; Venus/Saturn conjuncts in a composite chart, and square or opposition in synastry?


    • A conjunction is a composite chart can mean very close bonding and karmic attraction, but also delays and problems with distance or expressing love. Personal experience has shown it can also delay separation which took for ever! The synastry will be much the same, a big test to pass in order the make it work.

  5. Hi Jamie, both Venus and Saturn is sitting exactly on my DC right now and NN and Jupiter is sitting in my 5th (stellium of natal planets (4h) in virgo). I’m not really in a relationship, come to think of it, I’ve never really been in a relationship (that’s the gemini asc speaking). What can I expect?


    • This can indicate a a new relationships or commitment in an existing relationships. If alone then it will increase your feeling about the matter, making you think about why your relationships status is so, what you feel about it, and perhaps make a decision about what to do about it, or else accept it. This conjunction will have a far greater impact than the effected of house placement.

  6. Hey Jamie,

    Really enjoy your page. I have Neptune at 13 degrees Sagittarius in the natal, and my ascendant is 8 degrees Sag. With the Saturn/Venus conjunction sitting right in the middle of all this, and opposing my Natal Venus at 9 degrees Gemini, somehow I’ve fallen in love with someone unlike any I’ve met before. So much going on, transit wise, I don’t know how to interpret it…. Any thoughts?

    • Lucky you! This could be something serious and long term given your transits, or it could be fanciful and illusory. Is the love reciprocated?

  7. It absolutely is. Not only that, but there have been incredible synchronicities and omens all around me during our courtship that have been unlike anything I have ever experienced. We both are blown away daily by bizarre events that seem to indicate something very meaningful is happening, though neither of us knows what that might be, apart from our obvious desire to be with each other. We can talk for hours and are rarely out of contact with one another for long. It seems we’re magnetically drawn to one another by some force we don’t fully understand. I’m madly, madly in love. So these transits might indicate such a relationship? Thanks for the response, Jamie.

    • Definitely, in your case Saturn is acting like a glue. I expect you have spent an awfully long time apart since your last relationships in a previous incarnation which was cut short or experienced some sadness or hardship.

  8. Hi Jamie
    I have saturn at 27° conjuct my Venus at 18° both in Leo in my DC in my natal chart. Am a cancer sun, acquarius ascendant, Taurus moon.
    I have Sun, mercury & jupiter in my 6th and taurus moon in my 4th…am 37 years old never married but have gone through 2 extremely painful break ups in the past 6 years with the last break up taken place in sept 2015.
    How serious is this conjuction which is 9 degrees apart in my 7th house ? and what to expect in my next relationship and when is it the right time ?

    • Sara, that is too wide to be classed as a conjunction, for me anyhow. Only your Descendant applies to your marriage partner and other close partnerships, within an orb of 3 or 4 degrees. I know I am the only astrologer like this, but I don’t use houses because they are man made imaginary things. Much more informative is to find any fixed stars on your planets and points.

  9. Hi Jamie, I have natal Venus in Libra conjunct Saturn in my first house.. What are the positives and negatives of this sign placement?

    • I don’t use Signs or Houses so would want to know the degree to look for any fixed star conjunctions.

  10. Venus conjunct Neptune may have something to do with talented dancers as well – i’ve seen it in the charts of a number of them – Nureyev had it with an orb of 0’27 in Aries 10th house……along with Sun in Pisces conjunct MC.

  11. My ex has this aspect. Again, it’s spot on and his natal Venus is retrograde. I was the younger partner and my natal Venus is square Saturn, so I attract the older partners. My friends probably didn’t understand when I started seeing him (being a lot older), but it’s not me, it’s my astrology! I was 21 when I started seeing him and he was 41! His natal Saturn is also exactly opposite my vertex and conjunct my moon!

    • There must have been some lessons for you both from the relationship. My Venus opposite Saturn has not resulted in a major age difference in my long term relationships. In between there were some flings with younger ones though. As you age you may find yourself with much younger men.

      • I’ve had relationships with 3 older guys. But yes, I can see myself getting with a guy my own age now. I’m not saying that all older guys aren’t fun, but after a while the fun seems over and they can come across Saturnian in nature, which I really don’t like. I quite want a fun boyfriend now! It’s funny – my natal Venus is Square Saturn and Uranus, but my asteroid Juno is trine Uranus and Saturn. Maybe that means my married life will be better! My natal Juno is also trine my Moon.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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!

  16. 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.

  17. 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!

  18. 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

  19. 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…

  20. 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.

    • You are quite right. The Saturn venus aspect does often nvolve challenges from mean abusive situations and people. Also the holder of the aspect can flip and be the abuser. That’s when choice, free will and the environmental factors come into play.
      Saturn in Libra or in the seventh also tend to manifest this way.
      I do it your way. That is I am very cautious (saturn) about who, when and how i love and there are “tests” (saturn) to pass. Don’t even think of lying, cheating, being financially irresponsible to me-if you do then were DONE.
      So being somewhat reserved and aloof has worked wonders and keeps nonsense away. No contact=No conflict.
      Relationships (of all kinds)that are REAL may be sparse and not flashy, but they are a joy for their commitment loyalty and dependability (saturn)
      I love myself too😊

  21. 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.
