Venus Square Saturn Natal and Transit

Venus Square Saturn TransitVenus square Saturn in the natal chart in 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 you self.

They 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 grand kids now.

Venus Square Saturn Transit

Transiting Venus square Saturn can add stress to intimate relationships due to negative feelings, distance or other relationships problems. Most of these hindrances will stem from your own fears or criticisms, but you may face the same from others.

Basically, you are not so fun to be around for this day or so. 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 part 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 your for support and would be greatly disappointed if you let them down.

  1. Hi Jamie, I’ve been seeing someone for about 3 months and while things were going great, things started to slow down around the time of the Mars retrograde. Now we both have transit Venus squaring natal Saturn next week, and I’m worried he’s going to end it. Last time transit Venus squared my Saturn back in November, a relationship was suddenly ended. What happens if this transit is happening to both of us at the same time?

    • I can understand why you are worried about this. My best advise is to tell here why you are worried and try to spend time apart during the transit.

  2. I have venus currently transiting my 4th house (leo) with saturn in 9th house (capricorn). I spent the last two days secluded from everyone because I had a fallout with my mother. I found out she was having an affair and I confronted her in the most selfish way. I, myself, am facing the same predicament as she is…I feel like what I said to her was a reflection of the frustration I was and am facing today – I am tied up in a scandal that could ruin my family. Call me selfish, but I believe she needed a reality check..and that is exactly what she got (it’s different when it’s your mother – she’s still married to my father – so in my opinion, she’s living two lives). But now she doesn’t talk to me anymore or be around me. I honestly don’t care about her or how she feels towards me. Anyways, I believe it’s a test for’s teaching me tough’s teaching me why I shouldn’t me selfish…I do feel extremely unloved << but that is normal for me. It's easier to handle when you've never felt love from your parents. I just don't think I'll be forgiven any time soon…Oh well.

  3. I forgot to mention that my last comment was in regards to transiting venus opposite saturn. I feel the opposition is easier to handle.

  4. Hmm… I think think I possess Mercury and Venus Square Saturn in my natal chart, based on the descriptions contained therein. 22nd August 2016 will mark the 2nd anniversary of a personal ‘Praxis’ for me, a realization that I am going to upgrade Me in all the ways necessary to bring into my space a wonderful, prosperous existence. Am a Sagittarius decan 3, 19th December ’72 0240 hours. Any observations, Jamie?

  5. Jaime. This is very disappointing. Venus entered Virgo but I do not feel any warm feeling cuz of Saturn Square Neptune. I mean seriously… Can’t wait Saturn to go to Decan 3 signs.. Jaime it will be hard for you.

    • I see what yo means but I seem to be coping well by keeping busy. Being single now I see my Moon as caring for kids and domestic duties. I keep ahead on home duties and things seem to be going really well so far.

      • well ur my astrology teacher but Saturn is only @ 10 degrees now. Once it goes beyond 20 degrees, the party shall begin. At least you will not get Jupiter and Neptune Square Saturn that is just disaster.

  6. I also have natal Venus in the 9th house of Libra square natal Saturn in Cancer 18 degrees on my descendant, which puts it exactly on the cusp the 6th and 7th houses. I’ve read that when it’s that close of a conjunction, it’s basically considered in the 7th house. Is that true? For me, it feels like a VERY frustrating, challenging, nasty, and horrible aspect to have! At my age, I still haven’t overcome it, & afraid I never will.

  7. Hi Jamie, I am going through a stressful time on all fronts and would like to seek your advice. Do you do personal consultation? If yes what is the process?

  8. 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.;)

  9. 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?

  10. 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…. 😉

  11. 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 😉
