Sun and Venus in Aries – Enthusiasm, Charisma and Action


The Sun enters Aries on March 20 at the spring equinox. This is a big shift and it’s time to hit reset. The spring equinox for Western astrologers is akin to New Year’s Day. From contemplative, dreamy and quiet, we move to dynamic, active, impulsive and fiery.  Use this enterprising energy to start new projects and to confidently go after what you want. This “take charge” energy is great for entrepreneurial projects.


When Venus enters Aries on March 21 our sexual energy is high and we are ready to express our active, charismatic, can-do attitude.  The Sun and Venus in Aries expands your entrepreneurial and executive abilities.  This dynamic energy is excellent for launching a new business, especially those related to beauty, fashion or self-love.


Mars in Gemini trine Saturn in Aquarius is superb for tackling those projects you have put off for way too long.  Mars gives you the energy and oomph and Saturn gives you the discipline to start and finish even the most mundane task. Might be a good time to get a jump on cleaning out the garage or even the junk drawer.


Things become a little testy on March 23 under a challenging Mercury square Mars aspect.  As they say, “keep your nose clean” and your mouth shut until this contentious energy moves on by the 28th.



Confused Communication or Divinely Inspired Prose

 Mercury in Pisces on March 15 sometimes feels like a confused Mercury retrograde.  Keep your own counsel and be careful what you say and to whom you say it.  Don’t speak out of turn or give away family secrets.  Discretion is advised and speaking only truth is imperative.

However, if you write poetry or imaginative articles, Mercury in Pisces can open up a whole new world of creative communication. Write down your Piscean-inspired dreams for insight into your subconscious and an ethereal connection to the divine.

When the Sun and Venus in Pisces sextile Pluto in Capricorn on March 16-18, Venus in the sign of universal love and compassion is tempered by its positive connection to Pluto in Capricorn. Realistic Capricorn keeps us grounded amid an impulse to escape or to go fly among the stars. This pleasant aspect helps you ground your lofty ideas so you can manifest them and make them real.

Saturn Uranus and the 800-Year Shift

  • the upcoming square of Saturn to Uranus,
  • the Sun going over the Galactic center,

Meaning of Saturn in the Houses


Saturn is known as the planet of restriction, limitation and the enforcer of boundaries. Because no one wants to be restricted in any way, Saturn is viewed in a very negative light by many astrologers.


While it is true that Saturn in your birth chart or by transit can be hard to deal with, it is also true that Saturn is the great teacher who rewards hard work, discipline and responsibility.

As you grow and learn, Saturn’s lessons become easier and easier to deal with. As you read the descriptions below, always keep this in mind. Saturn really and truly does bring rewards. However, it does so in its own time and place. It cannot be rushed. 

Here are some of the issues you will face when Saturn is in a certain house in your birth chart (or when it transits key areas of your chart):


Saturn in the First House you need to come to terms with inferiority issues or comparing yourself to others and always feeling that you come up short in that comparison. You appear to others to be reserved, quiet and serious and some will see you as a cold person. The first house is your mask to the world so you may be very different inside than how you are perceived. You may be subject to depression and pessimism and may feel unloved or unworthy of love. Your life lesson is to learn to love yourself so you can allow others to fully love you.


Saturn in the Second House points to issues around money and values. I have read the charts of extremely wealthy people and those of very modest means with Saturn in the second house. Every single one of them has a deep fear of not having enough money. It isn’t about how much money you have, it is about how you perceive value, money and security. These money concerns cause you to be thrifty, practical and responsible with your money and other possessions. If you have Saturn in the second house, money and possessions will not come to you easily, but will come through hard work. The more you value yourself and are able to let your money flow, the more material abundance will flow to you. Those with this placement will have a comfortable money position as they get older.


Saturn in the Third House is about insecurity around your speech, your intelligence and your ability to communicate. You may compare yourself to a sibling where you always seem to come up short. You have a serious, patient and orderly mind and good organizational ability. Here again, Saturn can bring a tendency toward depression and a feeling of loneliness. Learn to accentuate the positive of this Saturn placement, which is the considerable ability of your mind. Learn to let go of the need to monitor all of your speech and communications. You are good at bringing order to ideas and concepts. You have something important to say to the world, so don’t hold back.


Saturn in the Fourth House points to issues around home, parents, ancestors or family traditions. You will often find an overly traditional or authoritarian parent or an absent parent when you have Saturn in the fourth house. You have a natural affinity for investments in land, real estate and antiques. Your tendency to worry can affect your health, particularly through digestive issues and/or ulcers. Be wary of becoming overly disciplinarian in your dealings with your own family. Some people with this placement become the caretaker for their parents at some point in their life. Learn to let go of any hurts you received from your family of origin. Your karmic goal is to become your own authority around matters of home and nurturing.


Saturn in the Fifth House shows someone who is overly cautious regarding love matters. The fifth house is the house of love given, while the eleventh house is the house of love received. This placement can leave you feeling unloved or unappreciated because you are giving too much and receiving too little. A person with Saturn in the fifth house may find it hard to relax and to have fun. A Saturn in the fifth house parent may be quite authoritarian and/or adhere to more traditional parenting methods. It is hard for this Saturn person to express their true feelings so they may be perceived as cold and unemotional by others. You would do well to learn how to project more feeling and warmth toward others. It’s not that you are cold, just that you may appear to be so.


Saturn in the Sixth House points to issues around authority on the job, working conditions, unfair pay, etc. Someone born with Saturn in the sixth house is a hard worker who takes their job duties very seriously. Others in the workplace may resent this or not understand you, which can be a source of workplace friction. This is the sign of the workaholic who doesn’t know how to leave the job at the workplace. You may be prone to illness from overwork and worry. Those with Saturn in the sixth house need to take extra good care of their teeth, bones and the general structure of their body. Your lesson is to follow your natural inclination to serve others, but to reserve some time and energy to love and nurture yourself.


Saturn in the Seventh House tells you about your close partnerships, both romantic and business, as well as your relationship to your advisors and counselors. Sometimes Saturn in the seventh house will indicate an older partner. Saturn here can show problems with close relationships due to its restrictive nature. However, it can also point to a long-term, very committed relationship. You need to look at the entire chart to determine which is true. This placement often indicates a karmic relationship in which you become teachers to each other. Someone with this placement may not marry until later in life. The lesson of Saturn in the seventh house is to be discriminating but not too restrictive in evaluating potential partners and counselers.


Saturn in the Eighth House relates to sexual matters, financial matters, crisis, taxes and insurance. It also relates to your partner’s money and money you receive that wasn’t earned income, such as loans and inheritances.  Saturn here cautions that you need to be careful about such eighth house matters. You need to stay on top of insurance matters and to not fudge on your income tax returns (including timely filing). Saturn here indicates a person who is skilled in dealing with finances. If you have Saturn in the eighth house your partner may struggle in the early years but become very successful later due to his/her hard work and business skills.  If you have this placement, learn to modulate your fears and anxieties. Every thing that happens is not a crisis.


Saturn in the Ninth House describes your philosophies, education, and religious beliefs seen through Saturn’s filter. Those of you with this Saturn may have grown up in a household with strict morals and dogmatic or traditional religious surroundings. Though the ninth house rules travel, Saturn here makes you much more likely to stay close to home rather than to travel to exotic locations. Some of you may have had to drop out of secondary school because of money issues or family responsibilities. Overall, Saturn in the ninth house quashes the normal ninth house meaning of expanding horizons. Your task with Saturn in the ninth is to let yourself be open to learning and mind expansion of all kinds. You don’t need to agree with what you learn or hear, you just need to be open to listening to it.


Saturn in the Tenth House shows someone who has to work hard to achieve public recognition and status or such recognition may be slow in coming. However, it is also true that those with Saturn in the tenth house can reach great heights in their career (in time) due to their hard work and commitment. Saturn in the tenth house gives you business management skills.  Your father is either a man of quiet dignity or someone who is so reserved that you never felt that you really knew him. This can often be due to his death or simply his absence from your life. When Saturn is in the tenth house achieving your goals in life is part of your spiritual path. Just don’t lose sight of who you really are in your competitive search for excellence.


Saturn in the Eleventh House shows a person who takes friendships seriously. Though you will have many acquaintances and only a few close friends. With Saturn here you always feel that you are different from those around you and that you never completely fit in with the group. Similarly, you need to carefully choose the groups and friends you are involved with. Use discrimination as to how much work you will do for others. Because this is also the house of “hopes and wishes” it would be good for you to not under estimate yourself. Practice thinking big as you tend to limit yourself. This is especially true regarding career matters as this house shows money gained from your career or profession.


Saturn in the Twelfth House causes feelings of fear, doubt and inferiority. Saturn here gives you strong inner discipline and the ability to sense other’s demons. Your feelings of inhibition can cause you to shrink within yourself and to withdraw from the outside world. This is the classic position for someone who is a “late bloomer.” If you have this position it is strongly recommended that you find a spiritual practice that is meaningful to you. It must be of your own choosing and not one that is the “right” one from other’s perspectives. This Saturn placement can have a healing element so long as you let yourself reach out for such healing. Similarly, Saturn in the twelfth house can indicate a person who has strong healing abilities.


The one thing to remember with all of these Saturn placements is that where ever Saturn is, you need to balance its restrictive nature with the ability to use its protective elements .  In other words, use Saturn’s cautions and limitations but overrule them when they become overly restrictive to your life.  Also, remember that where ever Saturn is in your chart you can become the star of that house because of how much effort and understanding you put into making it work.
