Venus Square Saturn Natal and Transit

  • 479

Venus Square Saturn TransitVenus square Saturn natal is one of the most challenging aspects of all. Two of the most important things in life are love and happiness, and these things seem even more important to you because they are more difficult to achieve than for other people. You will often feel like you are denied what you most want in life.

Feelings of rejection, isolation, and loneliness can start at an early age. How you deal with this throughout life depends greatly on how much love you received from your parents, especially your father. Along with love, you will have needed encouragement and support to boost your self-esteem. If you were subject to criticism or abuse, then this aspect will be harsher in adulthood, leading to bouts of depression.

Although square aspects are very challenging, they do present ample opportunities to improve on your weaknesses. The constant challenges and lessons about self-worth and love mean that with age, you can achieve the long-term happiness you strive for.

Take for example Dustin Hoffman with Venus square Saturn at a mere 0°01′ orb. When he left school and told his family about his dream to become an actor, his Aunt said “You can’t be an actor. You are not good-looking enough” [BBC Radio – Dustin Hoffman]. He did the hard yards and reached the top of his field which involves Venus self-image and beauty, how you project yourself.

The key to working through this aspect is self-love. If you let the criticisms and rejections take hold in your head, then these messages become reinforced. Erase that recording and replace it with positive messages such as “I am worthy of love” and things along that line.

Once you start to project a more positive self-image, then you will gain the confidence to make and maintain relationships. No longer will you hide your affections and miss out on opportunities for romance. No longer will you miss out on the feeling of being loved and valued.

Dustin Hoffman did experience a divorce, but his second marriage has lasted the periods of separation due to career. He has a bag load of kids from both marriages and even grandkids now.

Venus Square Saturn Transit

Venus square Saturn transit can add stress to your love life because of delays, shyness, distance or other relationship problems. Most of these hindrances will stem from your own fears or criticisms, but you may face the same from others.

To maintain harmony in relationships, it would be better to spend some time alone, but don’t ignore the affections and love of others either. Putting in the extra effort will reduce the risk of relationship dramas.

It is common under this influence to feel lonely and depressed, totally normal for human life. It will pass quickly and then you can get back to a harmonious and peaceful existence. Money can also be tight with this transit so avoid a tendency toward wasting money and other resources.

Although motivation may be lacking and you would prefer to be lazy, this transit may require hard work to maintain your present relationship, career or other valued parts of life. This is no time to be ignoring your responsibilities, especially for loved ones. Although you will be feeling low and in need of love, someone close to you may lean on you for support and would be greatly disappointed if you let them down.

  1. Thanks for posting about this…I have a natal Venus opposite Saturn and it definitely shows up in the more shadow realms like a square when I don’t pay attention to it. I think enough astrologers don’t emphasize what a difficult aspect this combo can be. I have a lot of clients who don’t know they have it and I feel good about reminding them while it may seem like love eludes them, in its positive side this combo means we may get more beautiful with age and a lot wiser about lover.;)

  2. Jamie, Ive noticed that (especially in a man’s chart) that LOTS of men get married when the transit Saturn squares their natal Venus. Have you noticed that? Increased responsibility in love, maybe?

  3. I have these 2 in “squine” natally, its like a constant teasing, flows freely at times, other times blocked, I often feel like a victimised monkey in a horrible science experiment, reaching for this flow of nourishment & flow it does, then suddenly for no good reason you get an electric shock instead, sounds amusing, yet isnt at all really, also because I have Venus in Taurus 7th & Saturn in Capricorn 3rd, it always involves relationships & quite a formidable face off at times, not easy for my Libra Moon & Asccendant. Needless to say, today is when this is occurring & the easy flowing feel good that began the day, rapidly changing to frustrating the hell out of myself, in equal style & measure…. 😉

  4. Also just to add, through my experiences, whenever Venus is involved its always about “her mirrors” whether it be the individual looking glass mirror experience or the hall of mirrors experience of the world, our potentials are always reflecting back what we are projecting out, only seeing what needs healing that is becoming ugly & unbecoming in ourself & others, because thats what we are looking for if our heart is not in the right place towards ourself or others, thus blocking our vision of “beauty” until we clean up emotionally & genuinely love ourself as we are, it a “through the looking glass” thing, then our image & that of others, that we see, occurs as if for the first time we are seeing everything in a whole new light 😉

  5. Icurrently have this venus square saturn for a few days right now and also in the bigger picture is Saturn trine Venus. Is this what they call a double transit ?

  6. I have a Grand Cross composed of Venus square Saturn, Venus opposed Pluto, Venus square Mars – never had a successful love relationship….started feeling isolated in kindergarten, dysfunctional parents. Plus I have a 2nd Grand Cross with Moon opposed Neptune, both squaring my ASC/DSC and Jupiter/Uranus conjunct in 12th house…..I truly don’t know how I’ve survived…..extremely lonely.

    • I understand how you feel.

      I’m somewhat in the same boat – I have a miserable stellium of Mars, Saturn, Pluto Conjunct, all three malefics retrograde and in the 7th house/Libra of relationships. And Venus squares all three! 🙁

      Venus square Pluto (almost exact), Venus square Saturn (3 degrees), Venus square Mars (7 degrees).

      Venus also opposes my North node, and NN is square the entire stellium, with saturn again squaring North North as an exact aspect.

      To me this all feels like having three separate T-square configurations, all hitting my Venus and my nodes. Pure, unadulterated hell.

      A couple of years ago Jamie told me that I had best learn about the squares to the nodes myself, but that I had a “very karmic” birth chart, and my soul’s evolution has been very heavy in this life due to all the retrogrades. Maybe your two grand crosses are also similar in that effect, what do you think? Sounds like it to me since your experience of lonliness mirrors mine.

      It’s brutal for sure, and the loneliness is soul destroying. The only thing that I have found which helps is trying to research on Soul contracts and Soul plans, and having past life regressions along with intense inner and spiritual work. I now try and look at my mostly miserable life as a way of being forced to turn inwards and learn to love myself. Sometimes we need other people to be removed from our lives in order to be forced to learn how to love ourselves deeply. (I hate this, but in hindsight it seems to make sense.)

      Self-love has been a hard won battle for me but as one slowly learns to love oneself, one finds that there are moments where the loneliness just vanishes. And strangely, new people seem to come into our lives, and where once there was a sense of having no one, people slowly start to appreciate us for who we are. Didn’t happen for me without inner work though, which has been hard to do.

      Please watch Teal Swans video on YouTube entitled The Lonliness Epdiemic, it’s about 1 hour 20 minutes long but it’s worth watching a few times over. It has helped me understand my deep lonliness and also how to work on not feeling so lonely. She speaks with the knowledge of one who understand intense lonliness herself and has tried to find ways to transform it. I wish you luck, hang in there!

      • Thank you for recommending Teal Swans video on YouTube. I also have Venus square Saturn, 0°32, and Venus square Moon and Saturn, 4 degrees orb. Never married, learned about self love.
