The Truth About Saturn Venus Transits is that they make you harder. Not hard as in “hard-bitten” but hard like a diamond.
“You can’t blame your hormones for being a bitch,” said the doctor. “They’re fine.”
Fine. I blame Saturn. The hormones are raging rabid, displaying no deficit. They are still partying away like it’s 1999.
But Saturn squared my Venus all 2017.
As some of you will appreciate, Saturn is an astringent.
Advantages Of A Saturn Venus Transit: Permanent inoculation against the Love Zombie Virus. Dangling baubles and evocatively named eye-shadows won’t micro-drain your bank account. Extreme pragmatism. You perfect an ability to filter out F-Wits.
Disadvantages Of A Saturn Venus Transit: Less flouncing-about action. Having such an active High Alert Perimeter Guard that it can turn out false negatives. Narrower mating options due to refined conditions/pre-requisites for ‘entry.’
Example: An Italian Leo – actually single. Not, it would seem, a secretly married narcissist seeking to up his dopamine levels from pretending to be available.
This person presented as charming, attractive, and neither mansplainy nor pompous enough to trigger Harvey-style angst.
An Italian Leo in actual pursuit, at that.
Pre-Saturn-Venus, this would have swiftly turned into a deep-assess of his birth chart. Progressions, transits, composite charts, and progressed composite with asteroids for fuqs sake. Quintiles if truly deranged.
With possible pretensions to being interested in Italian soccer teams or research of Tuscan cuisine. There could even have been the affectation of a more “Mediterranean” attitude.
Post-Saturn-Venus? Pfft. Substance. Gravitas. Authenticity. Maturity. Mutually Respectful Dialogue. These are the new turn-ons. Not responding with a suitably Venusian display (cooing, affirmations) in response to some feather fluffing, preening, or monologue recital of achievements/possessions/high profile acquaintances? Some could interpret this as being “a bitch.” Disdain for ego appeasement? Definitely.
The English language historian Geoffrey Hughes suggests the connection came about because of the Greek goddess of the hunt, Artemis (Diana in the Roman pantheon) who was often portrayed with a pack of hunting dogs and sometimes transformed into an animal herself. In Ancient Greece and Rome the comparison was a sexist slur equating women to dogs in heat, sexually depraved beasts who grovel and beg for men.
The modern word bitch comes from the Old English bicce, which probably developed from the Norse bikkje, all meaning ‘female dog’. Its use as an insult was propagated into Old English by the Christian rulers of the Dark Age to suppress the idea of femininity as sacred. The insult “son of a bitch” originated to ridicule spiritual pagans, who worshipped the bitch goddess Diana.
