Saturn transits the Houses

Saturn transits are notoriously tough. Saturn represents discipline, pessimism, restriction, and depression, and in transit, infuses your natal houses and planets with this energy. Read more to see how Saturn affects you as it transits your natal houses.

 

Saturn transits the 1st house:

 

As Saturn transits your house of Self, you become more serious and introspective. An increase in responsibility, maturity and realism are in store. You may choose to present yourself to the world in a more “mature” way, opting for clothes and hairstyles that are on the mature side. This transit can also indicate increased self-discipline, so it’s a great time to rid yourself of bad habits and overcome your inhibition. This is also an indicatin of weight-loss.

 

Saturn transits the 2nd house:

 

As Saturn transits your house of personal finances, you focus turns towards financial security. Your approach to money matters turns serious and responsible, so you might be more frugal than usual during this time. Often, this indicates a time of financial asceticism and strict budgeting, especially if you’ve been irresponsible with your finances in the past. The 2nd house also represents your personal values, so you might find yourself re-evaluating what is important to you.

 

Saturn transits the 3rd house:

 

As Saturn transits your house of communication, your mind turns towards more serious matters. This is a good time to buckle down on your studies, because your mind is so much more focused and disciplined during this time. Your style of communication may change during this time, as well, which could be difficult for your peers to understand, if they have come accustomed to your old ways. During this time, you are more likely to “watch what you say”. You might feel a strain in your relationships with neighbors and relatives.

 

Saturn transits your 4th house:

 

As Saturn transits your house of home life and family, domestic responsibilities take the forefront of your life. Obligations to your family might plague you during this time, so it’s time to step up and fulfill your familial duties. This is the time to resolve your childhood issues in order to clear the way for growth. Saturn also represents “restriction”, so this might be a time where you are separated from your family. This transit often occurs at the time a child leaves home.

 

Saturn transits your 5th house:

 

As Saturn transits your house of fun, romance, and children, your approach to these areas becomes more disciplined and responsible. You might see your romantic relationships as limiting, and increased responsible to your children might become burdensome. Any fear you’ve had of fun and romance will be confronted during this cycle, which will help you learn how to give and receive love more easily. You become more mature about romance, and take a serious approach to love affairs.

 

Saturn transits the 6th house:

 

When Saturn transits your house of work, health, and habits, you feel overburdened in these areas. This is a time of responsibility and hard work and increased anxiety (the 6th house rules the nerves). Health issues may pop up during this time, so take extra care. This is a great time to go on a diet or begin a new exercise regimen. You are more serious about your health during this time, so use this energy to your full advantage!

 

Saturn transits the 7th house:

 

When Saturn transits your house of one-on-one relationships, you take a more serious approach to relationships. This is often the time a person enters their first, committed, serious relationship. Relationships begun under this influence are generally heavy and serious, and the partner may be older. Break-ups often occur during this time (especially when Saturn conjuncts the Descendant), because Saturn forces you to take a good, hard look at your relationships to see what is working, and what is not. This transit can also indicate increased loneliness if you are not partnered up.

 

Saturn transits the 8th house:

 

When Saturn transit your house of sex, death, power, and joint resources, your energy turns inward. You may become fascinated by subjects like death and psychology. Unfortunately, I have observed this transit to wreak havoc on one’s sex life. Your approach to sex is more serious during this time. You don’t want to have “fun” sex, you want to have “real” sex. Unless your partner can offer you this, you’re likely to feel dissatisfied with your sexual experiences during this cycle.

 

Saturn transits the 9th house:

 

When Saturn transits your house, you develop a serious attitude towards higher education, travel, and philosophy. This is often the time you pursue higher education. Indeed, the 9th house is the last phase before entering the career phase of one’s life. You may take on a more serious, or skeptical, approach to your religion (if any) or belief system. You are attracted to metaphysics and philosophy at this time, and take on a more mature outlook on life. This cycle also favors long-distance travel, which will change your outlook on the world considerably.

 

Saturn transits the 10th house:

 

Saturn is “at home” in the 10th house. When Saturn transits your 10th house, career matters, reputation, and social status are at the forefront of your life. This period indicates an increase in responsibility and recognition in your career, especially if you haven’t “cut-corners” in the past to get where you are. Remember: Saturn always rewards hard work. Your professional success might be at the expense of your domestic situation at this time. In contrast, Saturn transiting your 10th house could also restrict your career opportunities, and the person may not find professional success once the transit is over.

 

Saturn transits the 11th house:

 

As Saturn transits your 11th house, your relationship with your friends might feel strained. This is a “cleaning out” phase when it comes to friendships; you are no longer satisfied with superficial relationships, so this could possibly be a time of good-byes. You strengthen your relationship with your “true” friends at this time. You may feel less sociable than usual, or feel self-conscious in group settings. Conversely, you might feel more responsible to your friends during this time. The 11th house also represents your long-term goals, so this period could be a time of culmination or restructuring of those goals.

 

Saturn transits the 12th house:

 

When Saturn transits your 12th house, you may feel lonely and isolated. This is a wonderful time to sever any ties to negative habits or people you’ve been holding onto. This is a great time to commit to your spiritual practices, such as meditation. This is the time to complete any unfinished business that has been plaguing you. You may become protective over your privacy during time.

Fertility Transits

Looking to get pregnant? Looking NOT to get pregnant? Find out which natal placements and transits increase your chances of conceiving!

 

Does fertility show in the natal chart?

 

Yes, it does!

 

The 5th house is generally considered the house of procreation and childbirth. If you have planets in your natal 5th house, fertility is favored. This is especially true if Venus, Jupiter and/or the Moon are in this house. Jupiter is the planet of abundance, so if you have this natal chart placement, you might have lots of children! Venus in the 5th indicates you will have children, and they will most likely be daughters. The Moon, the sign of the womb and the mother, indicates you have strong maternal instinct, and childrearing is favored.

 

The number of planets in your 5th house sometimes indicates how many children you will have. As I mentioned before, Venus in the 5th can represent daughters. The same goes for the Moon, and other feminine planets. Mars, and other masculine planets, in the 5th can indicate sons. The nature of the planet often indicates the qualities the children may possess. For example, if you have Venus and Pluto in your fifth, one of your children may have Libran or Taurus (Venus) placements, while the other may have Scorpio (Pluto) placements.

 

Some people believe that if Saturn is in your 5th house, you will not have children, or you are infertile. That is not necessarily true. Saturn may cause a delay in childbirth (i.e. you won’t have children until later in your life). Saturn in this house may indicate a fear of having children, as well. Either way, this aspect does not necessarily mean you’re not meant to have children.

 

If you have Cancer on the cusp of your 5th house, fertility is indicated. Cancer is the sign of the mother, as well as fertility, so having it on the cusp of your 5th house of children increases your fertility.

 

The ruler of your 5th is also important. Look for harmonious aspects from your 5th house ruler to your natal planets, especially Jupiter, Venus, or the Moon.

 

Finally, the asteroid Ceres is said to represent fertility. How is Ceres aspected and placed in your chart? Ceres in the fourth or the fifth is an excellent indication of fertility, as is Ceres in aspect to the Moon, Venus, or Jupiter.

 

 

Planets transiting your 5th house

 

  • Jupiter transiting your 5th house

 

The 5th house is the house of children and procreation, while Jupiter is the planet of expansion and good luck. Put these two together, and you’ve gone one fertile transit! Many women find they get pregnant during this time. If inner planets (such as the Sun, Moon, Venus or Mars) are transiting the fifth house at the same time, your chances for conceiving are greatly improved.

 

  • Saturn transiting your 5th house

 

Saturn symbolizes restriction, which indicates that women may have a more difficult time conceiving when Saturn is transiting the 5th house. On the other hand, Saturn represents increased responsibility, so giving birth can definitely be indicated with this placement! This transit can sometimes indicate a difficult childbirth. My mother gave birth to me when transiting Saturn and transiting Sun were conjunct her natal Sun in the 5th (yes, she had me on her birthday). I was born with a heart condition, which I didn’t recover from until I was about 3 years old.

 

  • Uranus transiting your 5th house

 

Uranus is the planet of unpredictability, so in the fifth house, this can sometimes indicate unplanned pregnancies. If you’re not looking to get pregnant, and you’re having this transit, take extra care to protect yourself! Conception is further indicated if transiting Uranus aspects your natal Moon and/or ruler of your 4th or 5th houses when it is transiting your fifth house.

 

 

  • Pluto transiting your 5th house

 

Pluto is the planet of transformation, as well as death and rebirth. When Pluto transits this house, conception can be indicated. In fact, during this time, you may become obsessed with the idea of having a child! Conception is further indicated if transiting Pluto aspects your natal Moon and/or ruler of your 4th or 5th houses when it is transiting your fifth house.

 

Transits to your 5th house Ruler

 

When your fifth house ruler is transited by a planet, especially Jupiter, your chances of conception increase. This is especially true if the ruler of your 5th house is in harmonious aspect with your Moon.

 

Transits to natal Ceres

 

As mentioned before, Ceres is the planet of fertility. When it is aspected by a transiting planet, your chances of conception increase. This is especially true if your natal Ceres is in aspect to your natal Moon, or is posited in your 4th or 5th houses, or is in the sign Cancer.
