Sun Conjunct Saturn In Scorpio – General Instructions For Beginners

From a consultation:

“The Sun transits the zodiac (and the houses in your chart) in a year’s time. Saturn takes 28 years to transit the zodiac so what you have at this moment, is one fleeting influence, and one that will be more sustained. The Sun transiting a house illuminates that house. Saturn slows things down and teaches whatever it is you lack, as far the affairs of the house go.

When you put the two together, these lessons (Saturn) are illuminated (Sun) at this time. Soon, the sun will move on, so it’s your job to scope this out while the lights are turned up…”

Where is does the Sun Saturn conjunction fall in your chart? Can you see your responsibilities at this time? Define them!

  1. It’s rolling through the final stages of my 5th house and will be exactly conjunct in a couple of days. I am being shown focus and value in my creative output… discipline my work, focus for a single project at a time, and learn the value of where I direct the creative energy.

  2. Going through my 12th. Be vigilant regarding my health. Let go of any ego desires. Just flow with faith and be ready for anything.

  3. At the end of my 12th, too, and sextile natal saturn (and transiting Pluto!)

    I feel for the other twelfth housers up there. I felt like that a lot; knew I needed to work on what was in those blind spots, and figured out that I couldn’t do it without a mirror (other people). I also had several teachers who taught me, among other things, to meditate, to look at my history differently, and even that “it doesn’t matter” is the best mantra sometimes. It has been difficult but revelatory. Keep the faith! Lessons can come very fast, and sometimes you can learn them fast, too.

    I opened up some, and given the pace of experiences lately, I see I’ve moved forward (I’m grateful) and also know that the hard work isn’t over. I do feel like I have earned my first belt in using energy more consciously, and I’m ready to use what’s left of the sunlight on this 12th house Saturn to open myself up to letting myself see what’s under there, and above, and within and behind. I am still resistant sometimes, but more likely than ever in my life to remember my place in the gulf stream.

  4. 9th a time for change of career(I am thinking about this a lot and want what is authentic as I shall be living with my choice for a long time, my plan last time round was social work which I have enjoyed to the full now its time to dream again), higher learning, allowing the truth to be revealed, trusting the path and shedding old skins, ties and behaviours so I can fly.

  5. Entering my 2nd. About to conjunct Scorp Moon and opp natal Saturn. I can handle intense scorpionic energies and emotions and “time alone to contemplate and go within”. I’m just sick of it! I’ve been alone most of my life and what I really want is a family! But i just recently went thru a breakup–yet another man who doesn’t treat me right! So of course, I stuck up for myself and ended it. But I am SO tired of doing this! It is like the same damn pattern of not getting my needs met or being appreciated in love just keeps repeating no matter HOW much work I do on myself. What is my responsibility? I guess not to cave in and accept less than I deserve? Still? By the time this pattern gets healed I will be too old to have children! Guess I’m feeling the Scorpio bitterness…

  6. First return in 3rd house,
    My new job as a housekeeper in patient rooms at the hospital: I get to communicate with people that are dying, have had accidents, are fighting fatal infections. Having had their physiological problems as the sole focus of most doctors and nurses their clarity and complexity of feeling seems to become intensified; the quality of the content has been superb.
    I have always wanted to persue an academic career: teaching english: encouraging people to be critical and questioning, creative and logical. THis saturn in 3rd house influence seems to support this aspiration of mine.
    Thanks Elsa!

  7. 11th house….feeling the need to show a sense of responsibility to the groups that I’m in. Gotta show up and contribute.

  8. Great post. So interesting. I have Saturn in Scropio natally in the 9th (or 10th using the equal house system). Both are pretty relevant to whats going on in my life right now…

    9th: Career/Work/Area of expertise – total redirection. Higher learning, maybe going back to school. Jupitarian theme: wanting to move towards something “meaningful”, humanitarian, sustaining for my inner beliefs/passions. Now making goals and trying to conquer the fear of actually attaining them!

    10th: Getting over the fear of “what people think” of who I am or what Im doing. Want to start a business. Revealing myself to the world/public/close friends alike as to who I really am/becoming. Again, career overtones here: “What am I wanting to do with my time, with my life?” Refer to the 9th house here….for inspiration & direction.

    Seems like these two houses sorta work together.

    Also, on a Solar chart note: Im a Libra Sun, so Saturn’s just left my 1st (applause) and enetering my 2nd. So in a broad sense, I guess my second house is running this thread: what do I value? What are the resources (talent/experience/skill) you possess, and what other ones do you need to acquire (Saturn in 9th) in order to succeed at your life’s work (10th)?

  9. Oh yes–almost forgot. Im also in the midst of my Saturn return. Me and old man Saturn are basically like best friends these days.

    …*high fives then secret handshakes with ol’ Father time*

  10. This one was good enough to make my first comment! Aquarius sun, Sag moon, Taurus rising… Just reaching the end of sixth house, conjunct my natal Uranus.

    Was hospitalized from a complication from gall bladder surgery sixteen years ago, twice, May and again a week and a half ago. Lost 45 lbs since May and became a certified group exercise instructor this past weekend and have seemed to find foods that agree with my digestive system finally.

    Decided during the last health crisis that i missed my sons father, who i ended things with 6 1/2 years ago and never thought I’d develop feelings for again. I’ve never been married, and being uninsured and having health issues, I’m wishing i had taken a different path. I’ve asked him if we could try again, as adults this time.. Tho not expecting much of an answer til the new moon/merc retro and/or Scorpio/Taurus eclipse in my 7th house later this month!
