Saturn Scorpio in the Seventh House: (House of Libra and Venus) This heralds the death knell for relationships that are an awkward fit. During this transit a few years ago, two people I'd say were friends gently ended things. It felt like hitting a wall, but I also realized I didn't have to strain (in one case) to bridge our very different energies. If something ends, have faith that it's Saturn's way of freeing you for something better.
There could be serious stress on the marriage or live-in relationships. If there are festering underlying issues, now is the time to address them. If there's no trust structure to do that, it's time to part ways. In Scorpio, the demands of the relationship house are nothing short of soul merging to create something new. This involves the dying process, the death of what we might call the ego -- to let go of who we are, for what we can become. A gift of Saturn here is the instinct to deal with core issues together, or make a clean break. Either way, we have the chance to get real with those closest to us.
Saturn Scorpio in the Eighth House: (House of Scorpio and Pluto) After cleaning up relationships in the Seventh, now we seek steady ground in a world where there are many pulls to the psyche. We deal head-on with issues of authority and authority figures. At the outset, there can be demands from ownership, taxes, or an inheritance. There could be financial entanglements with others that at first feel unsolvable.
Saturn is in Scorpio's own house here, the eighth, of sex, death and dying to the old, so something new can emerge. This promises to be big and open a path to greater empowerment. A way through, though, means acknowledging any vice grip power and /or money situations that have a psychic hold. It's worth looking here at the energetic contracts made with money. What subtle unspoken agreements are made, in exchange for money?
Saturn Scorpio in the Ninth House: (House of Sagittarius and Jupiter) It's curious to find Saturn, the contractor, in the 9th House, ruled by Jupiter, the expander. Now is the time to connect personal momentum with a sense of purpose. If you travel, it'll be empty, unless it ties in with your long range vision. If you're in school, it'll feel pointless, until you align it with your inspired future.
This brings a chance to widen your worldview, to make room for what's ahead. The next houses are about making your mark, and being a public presence. If your world has become too small, you grow discontent and restless. You might break out by embarking on a voyage of learning, whether formally or self-directed.
Saturn Scorpio in the Tenth House: (House of Capricorn and Saturn) From Saturn's natural journey through the houses, you've gained self-awareness and a sense of purpose. You might face a steep learning curve now. But Saturn is at home in the 10th, and Scorpio is a do or die sign. You're ready to overcome inner and outer resistance, and climb those mountains.
If doors are closing, pay attention. Saturn likes to block exits, to get you curious about other possibilities. Is it time to act on the momentum of the Ninth House, and establish yourself in a chosen field? Or perhaps it's about wearing a mantle of authority? A gift of this house is becoming established and reaching a personal pinnacle -- as a healer, educator, parent, writer or whatever role you inhabit.
Saturn Scorpio in the Eleventh House: (House of Aquarius and Uranus) If Saturn moving across the Tenth house brought a sense of accomplishment, we're better able to enter this stage of collaboration. What kinds of allies are in synch, with who we are now?
At the beginning of this transit, it becomes obvious that we're hanging with the wrong crowd. It's time to bring associations to a close, and that can be hard, though we know it's time. The reason why we were tied in with certain people has expired and we're running on fumes. We could feel flat and uninspired. This is a sign to move in new circles.
Saturn Scorpio in the Twelfth House: (House of Pisces and Neptune) This is a wrap up transit, to prepare you for a whole new Saturn cycle. You're no stranger to mysteries, with a Scorpio Twelfth House. This might be a dark night transit, but it could also be the most creative time of your life. Here Saturn puts the squeeze on, to forgive, and experience release from soul entanglements. These endings have grace, with the teaching that the great form is oceanic, so even in death, we're still part of one field.
You experience miracles, as you see with this kind of mystical clarity. You might take up formal study of metaphysics, and hone your skills as a medium or diviner. Now is the time to transform universal and soulful impressions -- to make art out of them or share them with your intimates. This is a transit for feeling connected to all of life, but especially those you love, even those on the other side.
