Saturn is in Pisces until 2025: Our efforts will be rewarded

I have already mentioned in my 2023 horoscope, the arrival of Saturn in Pisces ♓: "On March 7, 2023, Saturn enters the sign of Pisces. The initiatives you took in the past bear fruit. You may receive a promotion or improvement in your working conditions. Persevere because Saturn does not grant anything without effort, but if you know how to do it, you will be rewarded. Saturn in Pisces helps you draw the outlines of your inspirations to better realize them."

Like Pluto coming into Aquarius, Saturn is a slow planet. The slow planets are Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. They are, in this order, further and further from the Sun. Of course, their revolution around the Sun is getting longer and longer. Saturn is the fastest of the slow planets! Saturn completes its rotation around the Sun in about 29.5 years. It transits a star sign for about 2 and a half years ▶️ In March 2023, Saturn leaves the sign of Aquarius to enter Pisces and will remain there until May 2025 😯.

The slower a planet is, the rarer its transits, meaning:
➡️ it causes more impactful events
➡️ more impacts on the world's energies
➡️ more impacts also in our individual lives.

Saturn in Pisces

Saturn brings structure where you have lacked discipline. Sacrifices may be necessary, but at the same time, you will feel yourself moving forward rather than holding your nose and hoping that your dreams will magically come true.

Saturn in Pisces: Which zodiac signs will this bring good news for?

The arrival of Saturn in Pisces on March 7 will awaken our consciousness. It may help some to detach themselves from materialistic obsession 🤑. Thus, we could be more easily touched by the difficulties of others and, depending on our sign and nature, we will want to make our contribution to the improvement of the living conditions of some. On the other hand, for others, depending on the position of Saturn in their natal chart, we will notice a tendency to give up, overwhelmed by events and quickly discouraged.

Saturn in Pisces should help us to manage our frustrations and control our emotions in order not to sink into egoism or vanity. It will then seem important to us, to contribute to the improvement of human relationships 🤝 and to move away from excessive consumerism and materialism.

  • 👍 For Capricorn, Taurus, Cancer, and Scorpio, this is good news as the "old wise planet" will help them consolidate projects or realize wishes or ideas.
  • 👎 For Pisces, Virgo, Gemini, and Sagittarius, it will be more complicated as Saturn will tend to make things slower and more laborious in an effort to force them to cogitate and let their ventures and desires mature before acting.
  • 🤷 For Aries, Leo, Libra, and Aquarius, it will all depend on which sector Saturn is impacting.
If you were born in 1994, 1995, and up to mid-1996 or then between 1964 and early 1967...
Saturn in transit returns to its natal position in Pisces. This is called Saturn Returning to itself. This represents an important maturation step for you. A cycle ends, the Saturnine loop is closed, you have matured, and built things, plus, you will take stock of all that you have built up to that point in order to enter a new phase of life. This phase can constitute a new beginning by helping you to eliminate everything that seems secondary, or superfluous, whether it be material, intellectual, or emotional.

Saturn in Astrology: Planet of structure

Saturn is a planet of great importance in astrology. It has a lot of influence on birth charts and is also useful when it comes to forecasting techniques. In transit or in other forecasting techniques, Saturn often brings a concrete, palpable, decisive event or an atmosphere that no one can ignore! In a natal chart, it can be constructive, structuring, or frustrating.

However, beware because Saturn often has a bad reputation, and it is true that it can cause sentimental ruptures or job losses, but it does not do it alone: in this case, other planets are also dissonant at this time! Besides, it can be a great ally when this planet is well situated! It consolidates a professional position when it is well-connected to the Sun, plus it helps strengthen a relationship when trine to Venus. Furthermore, it encourages success and self-confidence when trine to Jupiter. Also, Saturn structures, secures, and limits us, in other words, it prevents drifting.

Saturn in houses: The influence of Saturn according to its position in each astrological house

In astrology, the placement of Saturn in the different houses of a natal chart can indicate different areas of a person's life where they may feel a sense of responsibility, discipline, and structure. Here is a brief overview of how Saturn in the different houses may manifest:

Saturn in 1st house: 

This placement can indicate that the person has a serious and responsible nature, and may be inclined to take on a lot of responsibilities at an early age. They may also be self-disciplined and self-controlled, but may struggle with self-esteem and a sense of personal identity.

Saturn in 2nd house: 

This placement can indicate that the person may have a strong sense of responsibility when it comes to financial matters, and may be disciplined in their approach to managing their resources. They may also struggle with self-worth and may feel that their value is tied to their material possessions.

Saturn in 3rd house: 

This placement can indicate that the person may have a strong sense of responsibility when it comes to communication and learning, and may be disciplined in their approach to acquiring knowledge. They may also struggle with self-expression and may feel that their ideas are not valued.

Saturn in 4th house: 

This placement can indicate that the person may have a strong sense of responsibility when it comes to their home and family, and may be disciplined in their approach to maintaining a stable home life. They may also struggle with feelings of emotional security and may have a fear of abandonment.

Saturn in 5th house: 

This placement can indicate that the person may have a strong sense of responsibility when it comes to creativity and self-expression, and may be disciplined in their approach to pursuing their creative endeavors. They may also struggle with taking risks and may have a fear of failure in their creative pursuits.

Saturn in 6th house: 

This placement can indicate that the person may have a strong sense of responsibility when it comes to their work and health, and may be disciplined in their approach to their daily routines and responsibilities. They may also struggle with feelings of inadequacy in their work, and may have a fear of failure in their career.

Saturn in 7th house: 

This placement can indicate that the person may have a strong sense of responsibility when it comes to their relationships, and may be disciplined in their approach to partnerships. They may also struggle with feelings of inadequacy in their relationships and may have a fear of commitment.

Saturn in 8th house: 

This placement can indicate that the person may have a strong sense of responsibility when it comes to their psychological and emotional well-being, and may be disciplined in their approach to dealing with their own emotional issues. They may also struggle with feelings of vulnerability and may have a fear of intimacy.

Saturn in 9th house: 

This placement can indicate that the person may have a strong sense of responsibility when it comes to their beliefs and values, and may be disciplined in their approach to seeking knowledge and understanding. They may also struggle with feelings of inadequacy in their understanding of the world, and may have a fear of the unknown.

Saturn in 10th house: 

This placement can indicate that the person may have a strong sense of responsibility when it comes to their career and public image, and may be disciplined in their approach to achieving success in their professional life. They may also have trouble with feelings of inadequacy in their career, and may have a fear of failure in their professional endeavors.

Saturn in 11th house: 

In astrology, the placement of Saturn in the eleventh house of a natal chart can indicate that the person has a strong sense of responsibility when it comes to their friendships and social connections, and may be disciplined in their approach to building and maintaining relationships. They may also struggle with feelings of inadequacy in their social circle and may have a fear of rejection. With Saturn in the eleventh house, a person may have a more serious and responsible approach to their friendships, and may be more selective about the people they allow into their social circle.

Saturn in 12th house: 

The placement of Saturn in the twelfth house of a natal chart can indicate that the person has a strong sense of responsibility when it comes to their own inner world and unconscious mind, and may be disciplined in their approach to understanding their own psyche. They may also struggle with feelings of inadequacy in their own self-awareness, and may have a fear of their own unconscious motivations and desires. With Saturn in the twelfth house, a person may have a more serious and responsible approach to their own inner development, and may be more inclined to seek out solitude and introspection in order to understand themselves better.

Saturn in astronomy: A giant planet

Saturn orbits the Sun at an average distance of 1.4 billion kilometers. Saturn is a giant planet, just like Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune. Second planet in size with a diameter of 121 000 kilometers, it is best known for its rings, composed mainly of ice particles and dust. Saturn is a gaseous planet. Like Jupiter, it rotates very quickly on itself, in about ten hours, and is mainly composed of hydrogen and helium, as shown by its very low density. It is the most distant planet of the Solar System that can be observed with the naked eye in the night sky from Earth. Its rotation around the Sun is about 29 and a half years.

Saturn in mythology: God of time and agriculture

Saturn is the divinity of sowing and cultivation of the vine, he is assimilated to Chronos. Son of Gaia, he escaped, as a child, from his father Ouranos-Uranus who, jealous of his offspring, had eliminated them. Saturn took his revenge by emasculating him with an axe, and then he reigned in the heavens in his father's place. Later, he would in turn kill his children (whom he had had with his sister Ops or Rhea) by swallowing them to avoid that they take his place...! Jupiter escaped him and found him later, to make him vomit his other children and thus save them. Jupiter then reigned and Saturn had to flee, he was taken in by Janus.
