Your Venus Square Saturn Transit Optics

Dark skinned model with white gloves and dark glasses

A Venus square Saturn transit is when the eye begins to see.

It is a square so think terse but concise. Parse the data. Make a plan. Stick to it.

Maintain standards in Romance, Beauty, Art, Nutrition & Personal Aesthetics.

Outer Inscrutability conceals an inner re-structure that may or involve all or any of the following:

Surreal fashion photography. Girl with statues.

Paying homage to your former Love Zombie self or what remains from something darker, an episode in your life that you are only now seeing in full.  A Venus square Saturn transit is clarifying but it has a somber dimension.

Didmonton Parish Church

Remembering the churches you no longer attend, the places you no longer worship at, the people you once held up as demi-deities and their fall from your graces.  AND…

La Belle Et Bete

Re-assessing the primary relationships in your life.  It’s not just a normal Venus scenario. It’s more potent because Saturn is turning Direct in square to the Love Goddess. A Venus square Saturn transit – whether it is your natal Venus or just Venus Saturn in the sky now – is sobering.

nattily my venus is on my descendant opposite my ascendant which is Scorpio with Neptune conjunct it (though neptune in 12th house) and Saturn in 1st house opposing my Sun in Taurus..lots of old (unsuitable and weird) boyfriends are reappearing in the area I live in, really quite creepy, almost stalker like…yes I used to be a love zombie who down dated and I also have what I call a nutter magnet -they seem quite normal and then suddenly a few months into the relationship they reveal their ‘inner nutter’ and become jealous obsessive and well,,,,weird. Horrible. Also my part-time… Read more »

So true about the LZ stuff, had a crazy dream re that last night, an ancient Neptune situation, that is very prominent in my brain right now. This is why I love Astro, to know that it’s a symptom/sign of the times and carry on, grok the insight but move along…

my life was more exciting as a love zombie. At least, I actually believed in love then. Now, I don’t believe it exists.

Not true. Lotz on here told me not to worry about it; that’ll come in good time. It took me a while to work out what MM meant by wrong women. She said to pursue financial stuff. That was strange to me as Moon 7 Hauser and Kat Asc trine heavily aspected Neptune in Scorp and a Virgoan Mars Pluto Venus trijunct. Then, outa da blue, she happend to me. A Piscean Stellium with Nep on her Scorp Asc and her NN on my Asc. A multi Water GT synastry. Ahhhhmazing. As l am a Pluto in Virgo l suspect… Read more »

As a natal LZ i can say It is a very sobering transit for sure. It is not the same kind of love but it is ok. You just have to reset your “taste buds” and pretend the salad is cake. 🙂 salad is more sustainable to most people’s bodies and minds versus cake.

So glad saturn is going direct. Its been going backwards and forwards over my natal MC at 9 Saggo for ages, and saturn’s square to neptune is right on my pisces ascendent. I’m exhausted from stepping up professionally as much as I can, and juggling high and low neptune 🙂 Also, the current chiron action is right on my natal moon and opposite my natal sun which has transiting Jupiter on it – pain and distress around my ageing Dad, who left when I was about 2 and a half years old. It is a bit weird when major outer… Read more »

ah another pisces ascendant! =) I hear you. I’m dreading the neptune conjunct AC – is that wat you have going on now? The astro this year is hell for mutable risings/charts. It’s really reactivating a ton of natal chart configurations for me as well. Saturn went rx in a perfect square to my pisces ascendant & chiron in gemini (both 16deg). Right now transiting chiron is on my natal jupiter @ 23deg pisces, and that was just the pre-show… i have sag venus, mc & uranus about to get squared by jupiter in virgo and then chiron + my… Read more »

Mystic, your posts are always spot-on, but this post is one of the ones I read more than once because it is so right on the money it’s unreal. I’ve been undergoing a complete rewiring over the past few months and had some things come to light in the past 24 hours.

Rewiring is a word that resonates with me too. I have been psychically shaken awake during Saturn’s reverse motion.

Holy crap! Last night so intense! I had to diffuse a situation in a relationship that would’ve expired if i chose a passive approach (that i had explored in a recent failed past relationship) but would crumble with new fragility if i handled it with the Libran sun- scorp moon-sagg asc sledgehammer that i normally use. What to do when you are a 2 trick pony? Learn a third trick. I chose a middle path and it brought us closer than ever. He was able to express vulnerability that hadnt been shared before in a safe container i made for… Read more »

This last six months I’ve been repeatedly ‘hit’ with ‘the third option’ when the situation has looked like it was locked into two diametrically opposing options. Perhaps it’s timely to remind myself this. To be open to the third option. And wait for it to present itself.

Glad that the third option was such a powerful one for you.

Annica
Annica

I miss your posts dear! I hope all is still well with you!

For me it was about evening , seeing the 3rd option! Hell there could be more options than that,but it was better than what i normally do for sure. I do feel like i have levelled up.

I hope you find your third or 4th or 5th….etc option that works for you!

Venus in my 3rd, Saturn in my 6th (on Neptune).
Sweet words, but dream shattering nonetheless?!

Congrats to the person who burned down my childhood church.
So many young people died in silent pain, at least the charred stones evoke their memory now.

I’ve had a Catholic priest stalking/lusting after me for over a year.

When I knew him very superficially, I liked him. He is charming but egotistical. Spent some time with him socially, & began to see an occasional fang, eye gleam, other unpleasant traits – like lying & gossiping.

Now, he flat makes my skin crawl. Totally creeps me out. Ran his chart & it is frightening. Alcoholic low Libra Sun/Moon, with some rather diabolical & unsavory planetary aspects.

My mother thinks I should report him to the local Diocese. But I’m sure they know what he is, & obviously don’t care.

I thought they only went after little boys; in the main.

TripleLMM Member

Me too.

He’s absolutely vomitrocious. Have never known anyone before who evokes such disgust & loathing in me.

I’ve had nothing to do with him since last Nov, & yet he persists.

If someone were to write a book on covert things priests say & do when they are trying to get laid, this is the guy they should chronicle.

Insert Linda Blair, power puking here.

And the pope tgey have in charge is a feel-good lackey. “An Innocent in Paris” who is a ‘lovely’ front man hiding all the sexu-depravaditus that is reprobatably indefensible.

But aren’t they wonderful. So say the 2million ‘Dupees’

Sorry to hear you feel that way Jupiter. I don’t feel guilty in any way but I do feel frustrated as the abuser specific to my family member was never caught as he used a false name. The priest who installed this fellow predator to abuse in the presbytery and school was actually protected by the Church and certain members of the Police force! I have never seen such a lack of empathy with a sense of extreme entitlement in a person as that priest. He said to a group while I was present, “They will never catch me, I… Read more »

ooh. Venus on my sun now (2 degrees away), and that Neptune Saturn square has been pinging me all of 2016. I have been working it, so I am not the blithering wreck I was in Feb when Saturn first unceremoniously sat on my Chiron, at the same time that the NN visited n.Saturn. Good thing, as on my next birthday Saturn will square and Neptune will oppose my sun, while Mars comes to visit my old ouchie mate Chiron. All exact to the degree on my birthday. Sets up an interesting Solar Return chart for the next 12 months…… Read more »

I had the opposite in my upbringing – too much Saturn not enough Neptune. Just as damaging. My father was cold, distant, controlling. ZERO affection from both parents. I feel like an orphan and can totally relate to people who were adopted and feel unloved. It leaves a scar and an ever lingering melancholy. Explains why I’ve never really had any long term relationships either.

Chronos,

Big (((hugs))) to you. Yes, your upbringing does leave long-lasting scars and a sense of loss for the parental relationship that never was. May you find peace with a situation you can’t change and, someday, someone who will give you the love you most certainly deserve.

Peace…..

“Remembering the churches you no longer attend, the places you no longer worship at, the people you once held up as demi-deities and their fall from your graces.”
Considering the news I heard today no truer words were ever spoken.
Permission to feel vindicated after all these years, and perhaps even a little proud of myself.
Thanks Mystic, xo

Over the past week or so I seem to have had constant conversations with a couple of key people regarding how I don’t appreciate their communication style. Topics have included bullying, lying, denial, manipulative emotional strategies, lack of boundaries, disrespect of my boundaries even though they have been CLEARLY stated … and so forth. A part of me appears to be capable of standing back from other people’s interaction/communication style and ask … hang on a minute? Is this true? Am I being manipulated here? Whilst my emotive Cancer sun/Saggo moon feels the attack and wants to go ballistic firing… Read more »

I know it’s 2 degrees away – but does this square also by default take in neptune? … and then I guess the north node too.

How does that work if 2 planets are an exact aspect and then another is 2 degrees away?

as if saturn direct (sq my saturn) wasn’t enough.

Drew the Nine of Pentacles in the 2nd just now – “the pleasure of a plan brilliantly executed”; art as “a garden [cultivated] with an eye for enduring fruitfulness”.

I should also mention that I drew the card a few minutes after a close friend/collaborator and I spontaneously decided to record some of my originals while I’m back in my hometown for a short trip. Signing and showing up for everything Venusian-Saturnian!

“Re-assessing the primary relationships in your life.” => BIG TIME! Had it out with a friend I’ve known nearly 30 years. Called him out and he actually took responsibility, but we’ll see…. I guess I’m ‘keeping my own counsel’ right now, just not counting on anyone else, it’s just easier right now.. And the eye beginning to see, and possibly getting insight on LZ tendencies…..that would be great! Through understanding, we can heal, transcend, all that…I’d love to leave behind the dynamics that have led me to LZ at times…..man, that would be a weight off and a liberation of… Read more »

I have Venus sq Saturn natally too – Gem & Virgo… right in the mix of the current neptune/saturn/venus sq… I always see it as work vs romance… or work pulling me away from romance, or romance kinda happening at work, or romance distracting work lol. I find it really hard to get the balance. How does yours manifest?

I have that apsect – widely so – not within 8 degrees…but still venus in capricorn is an odd bed fellow with saturn in aries! Cardinal, really very stoic but too unyielding to change? How do you get that? I have venus in 5th, saturn cusp 7/8th…so have you endured pluto grinding over your venus too? Just to add to all the intensity, lol. So what I see with venus in capricorn is some kind of bizarre ability to preserve (to the point of of being stone sculpting) relations coolly, with stability (not flexibility though?) but with great intention for… Read more »

apparently venus square saturn can mean a capacity for longevity in relationships, and the stamina to go the distance. keep on setting healthy boundaries and enjoy your other good venus aspects and remember squares are there to be worked – eg boundaries, responsibility and endurance around venus issues – not a bad thing to be tackling….look after yourself too

I am about to clean my house for the first time in 2 months. Keep in mind what I consider a mess confuses my guests (“um, WHAT mess?”) but g’dammit Virgo rules the 4th and if ain’t impeccable it ain’t CLEAN. I was talking to Spirit this morning telling them to just cut the chords to all that doesn’t serve my highest vibe presently and in the future. I keep thinking about old era folks (I’m talking dinosaur era) and it’s boring me. I also woke up with a sore back so whatever this psychic baggage is, take it –… Read more »
