Judging from the comments people are leaving, I thought I’d offer more information for the different signs on life with Saturn in Scorpio. First of all if you generally live by Saturn’s rules anyway then Saturn transits often up end being no more than fine tuning. You know . . . behave responsibly, pay your bills on time, be a dependable friend and lover, be respectful and don’t make too many rude gestures when frustrated.
We’re moving from Saturn in cardinal air (Libra) to fixed water (Scorpio). Therefore it will be those with personal planets and Rising signs in the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) who will have Saturn conjoining, squaring or opposing those positions. It will be Leo and Aquarius placements most vulnerable to Saturn’s lessons because they are square to Scorpio. Fixed signs in general get in the most trouble when they take a stand without making sure it’s worth supporting to the bitter end . . . a case of tenacity turning into stubbornness. This may end up by cutting off the nose to spite the face.
Those with personal planets and Rising in Cancer and Pisces will benefit the most from Saturn’s stay in Scorpio because it will be gently trine those placements. I see Saturn trines as one of THE most helpful transits around. You get support and guidance without the heavy handed lessons of the square. Cancer in particular can really use some TLC after surviving the cardinal storm the past few years. Sure, they still have to deal with Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn if they placements from 9° to 15° in Cancer but going forward Saturn will have their backs instead of confronting them.
Of the earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) only Taurus faces any challenges from this Saturn and those are tempered by the fact water and earth are compatible. The opposition can mean we deal with individuals with whom we have differences in opinion that are still resolvable with compromise. Saturn will be sextile to those with Virgo and Cappy placements and whilst not as sweet as the trine, the sextile is helpful in a friendly manner.
Libra and Gemini are semi-sextile and inconjunct Scorpio respectively. These aspects can be irritating but usually not overwhelmingly so day in and day out like the square or conjunction. Both air signs may need to clean up their acts when it comes to financial matters as in stay out of debt, honor financial obligations and practice frugality. The same can be said for Aries because Aries is inconjunct Scorpio. Sagittarius is semi-sextile to Scorpio and they need to be very careful to be honest with themselves and avoid being their own worst enemy.
For those who are facing Saturn in Scorpio for the second time as an adult, please keep in mind it is seldom nearly as bad as the first time because hopefully you have learned a few things over the years. Maturity really truly matters when undergoing Saturn transits. If you among those facing your first Saturn Return . . . good luck and reread the first paragraph.
