Saturn Transits to Natal Moon

Saturn transits to natal Moon

By Corinne Lane     16 Comments

Saturn transits to your natal Moon mark periods for introspection and self-examination, and thus recognizing the patterns of your emotional habits. These are the most important transits for overcoming psychological conflicts and recognizing them.

You can see your weaknesses, since you are a victim of them at these times. Many complexes and traumas come out and you face them to fight them and at the same time to make deep commitments to yourself and to others.

You learn directly from the results of your past actions and emotions. These are one of the most critical karmic periods where you can overcome many problems and karmic debts, as well as start many others. There is a tendency to depression and avoiding confrontations with others.

You withdraw within yourself as you see what your failures have been, so you must be honest with yourself and with others. Any suffering you go through can be traced by looking at your past actions, especially from seven or fourteen years ago.

Family matters are also of great importance now and you must find your own inner security in order to achieve great emotional maturity. Women have a special meaning in your life during these periods. They are the ones who teach you something very important, and they can also be the ones that put you in conflict.

Transit Saturn Conjunct Moon

The transit of Saturn conjunct your natal Moon makes you feel depressed and lonely while at the same time you feel very demanding and critical of yourself. Because of that, your inner security can suffer and you will realize your inferiority complexes and weaknesses. You have to understand yourself more deeply now, as well as understand others, emotionally.

This transit greatly affects the meaning of who you are, and it makes you very self-aware. Although, this self-awareness also happens through provocative emotional outbursts and irrational outbursts. You also have to define your internal motivations and define what you want from now on. You must question yourself and not hesitate to reconstruct your internal emotions.

It is usually a time of suffering and great psychological growth. You take everything very seriously and feel very dry, emotionally.

You can create a distance between yourself and others. Even the most common experience is painful, so if you just had an emotional and romantic breakup, do not start another relationship until this transit has passed.

Your perspective is now too negative and realistic to be carried away by romantic fantasy. Positively, you can end some karmic situation and you can create something new for the future. Finally, you can resolve traumas and conflicts that have been pending since seven or fourteen years ago.

Transit Saturn Sextile Moon

The transit of Saturn sextile your natal Moon is a very important time to achieve a balance between your emotions and your reasoning. The experiences of the past and your acquired emotional maturity have prepared you to be able to overcome any conflict now, overcome emotional patterns and habits, as well as feel greater satisfaction and internal security.

You can see with objectivity what is true in yourself, and can face reality with more integrity and self-confidence. Now is a good time to make family, personal, and home decisions, as well as plan for the future and reorganize your finances.

You can overcome many psychological problems and make the necessary corrections so that your behavior does not block you in the future. You have an opportunity to feel emotionally satisfied if you are serious about making the necessary readjustments to make your life fuller.

Do not adopt a very pragmatic attitude. Be tolerant with overwhelming situations, although now they do not feel as heavy as other times. Devote attention to meeting the needs of those around you so that they can also help you to make more real and stable roots. It is a good time to change karmic patterns and create more positive ones.

All intimate and love relationships go through a period of very positive learning. You find yourself taking conscious control over your life and even being able to respond responsibly to all crises from this point forward.

Transit Saturn Square Moon

The transit of Saturn square your natal Moon makes you feel isolated, depressed, negative and lacking in confidence, since you think you do not deserve love. That is why you have a tendency to blame yourself for certain emotional conflicts that you are now having, and this provokes irrational and explosive reactions that usually cause others to turn away from you or reject you.

Therefore, this represents a time of many difficulties in intimate and family relationships. This creates a conflict between your professional and personal obligations. It is difficult to get the backup and emotional support you need to break through psychological problems and get ahead.

You should make a readjustment between your external and internal commitments, since one has been benefiting from the other by repressing or abandoning it, and now you must achieve a balance between the two in order to feel relieved and satisfied.

You feel unable to fight against certain circumstances that are out of control. You have to realize all you habits and patterns to overcome them, and thus continue to grow and mature spiritually.

You may feel as if you are losing something that you feel very attached to, but any kind of loss or separation, however painful it may be, will have some significance to help you transcend your karmic debts.

You see reality much more raw than at other times because of a tendency to feel your own suffering with greater intensity. You can discover the reasons for the conflicts by studying your behavior of seven and fourteen years ago.

Transit Saturn Trine Moon

The transit of Saturn trine your natal Moon is a very important time for achieving a balance between your emotions and your reasoning. The experiences of the past and your acquired emotional maturity have prepared you to be able to overcome any conflict now, overcome emotional patterns and habits, as well as feel greater satisfaction and internal security.

You can see with objectivity what is true in yourself, and can face reality with more integrity and self-confidence. Now is a good time to make family, personal, and home decisions, as well as plan for the future and reorganize your finances.

You can overcome many psychological problems and make the necessary corrections so that your behavior does not block you in the future. You have an opportunity to feel emotionally satisfied if you are serious about making the necessary readjustments to make your life fuller.

Do not adopt a very pragmatic attitude. Be tolerant with overwhelming situations, although now they do not feel as heavy as other times. Devote attention to meeting the needs of those around you so that they can also help you to make more real and stable roots. It is a good time to change karmic patterns and create more positive ones.

All intimate and love relationships go through a period of very positive learning. You find yourself taking conscious control over your life and even being able to respond responsibly to all crises from this point forward.

Transit Saturn Opposite Moon

The transit of Saturn opposite your natal Moon is one of the strongest trials on the emotional plane. Feelings of sadness, depression and loneliness are characteristic, which bring great emotional conflicts and the possibility of separations.

You realize that you have been refusing to meet your true emotional needs and cannot continue as before. You feel disconnected from others because you have to examine your true motivations and sense of purpose. You take things very seriously now and want to repress your feelings, so you easily build a wall between yourself and others.

You can see things from an excessively realistic and negative perspective, so you must maintain a sense of order and self-discipline. It is very hard, but also very rewarding, to grow psychologically.

You must take more responsibility and control over your life now and mature a lot, otherwise your feelings of pain, suffering, and guilt will become unbearable. The best thing to do is to make an important commitment to self-improvement and to strive to feel more confident inwardly.

  1. I came here because I am experiencing this transit and needed some understanding of the excruciating emotional pain I’m in. I never thought this was waiting for me at this crazy time (April 2021). I’ve passionately moved towards experiencing mastery and freedom my whole life, and felt I’ve been hovering on the threshold for years, in a holding pattern of sorts, and so just allowing my realization to come as it may. At this stage in my life (62), after the wild, punishing and painful life experiences I’ve gone through to get here, the pandemic knocked me out unexpectedly, but gave me time and space and solitude to devote my time to myself and though bruised and battered, I was ready for this.
    I can attest, this transit feels awful, unbearable, brick walls everywhere, emotional turmoil and raving self criticism, experienced only as a hyper sensitive 54degree Pisces can dive into – endless suffering, guilt, fear. My affected moon in this transit is in Leo – and it is roaring in indignation and anger, masking deep and secret insecurities it knows it must face to truly be king – hard for Leo to suffer from the haunting loneliness, painful past memories, disconnection, trauma, mistrust, and insecurities ripping at its very being. “Fraud! Loser!”
    Then I remember the phrase “The lion walks alone.”
    I can only trust that I set it up this way with my soul – a big clearing of the deepest, darkest, loneliest, most hidden, wounded emotional and psychological pathologies that are ready to come up to the surface, and the challenge to be the safe space in myself while these aspects rage at me. Such is the journey to integrate all that you are on the path to spiritual maturity. I hope to keep this in my heart as I continue through this gut-wrenching, “no good very bad” transit.
    I also came here to remember how long a Saturn transit is, because frankly I’m exhausted. Throughout the pandemic year I came through Saturn squaring Mars, Saturn squaring Venus, Saturn Opposing Uranus, which overlapped into Saturn Opposing my Moon (my Moon and Uranus are conjunct at about 10 degrees of orb as I recall).
    All I can say is, it’s like going through a shredder.
    I can only trust that for it, I will be better.
    If you’re going through this transit I’ll share whatever wisdom I have: Get lots of rest, have patience, don’t start anything big and new, lay low, lick your wounds but don’t brood and mope, see a skilled therapist you feel good with, cry and let it all out, but watch for extremes in emotions and outbursts – it’s very wearing on the psyche. Find supportive and gentle outlets to release the pent up emotional energy, primal screaming in the car, punch a pillow, and mostly be kind and gentle and be there for yourself. You are a precious being and much loved for what you are doing here.
    Love to all who come across this…if you came for the same reason as I, please know you are not alone. Keep your chin up – this too shall pass and you will be the more integrated person you want to be after you move through this.

      Wow! I came here for the exact same reason Kasama, reading your post made me tear up a bit, the self care advice was so beautiful and I feel your pain so much (also a Leo moon in April 2021)

      This transit is absolutely brutal! Even though I am no longer religious, it definitely reminds me of the story of Job in the Bible where everything gets taken from him. Huge amounts of loss, grief, and loneliness. All my illusions and escapes are being stripped down to see what I’m made of.

      Guess we’ll have to hang tight until December 2021.
      Feel free to contact me if you need some extra support, I know it can feel like one of those situations nobody else really understands fully

    • Hoi, Kasama, I’m having the same transit now and have also Moon in Leo conjunct Uranus with an orb of seven degrees.
      Hope you’ re doing well.
      Now, with Saturn heading back to make the opposition again ( mine ends in November: still 5 more months!!!) I think the hardest part is to come.
      Lay low is good advice, since everything seems to be working against me now, such as predators wanting to kill my good reputation. Don ‘ t know what to do about it. Saturn is also squaring my ascendant at the same time by the way.
      Would like to hear how you are doing by now?

      • Kasama on said:

        HI Rose! Oh it’s nice (?) to know I’m not alone! I’m doing pretty good, things are actually working out. It’s been a long journey and still some ways to go but I gave myself the time and support to let the changes happen, though it’s been really rough. I feel like I’ve integrated the changes and recently made a clear choice to adopt a ‘no more battles’ attitude to what I thought was working against me – this is basically the entire wisdom of this period for me! When I did that, things that had been a source of stress and upset all year were resolved without me having to do anything and it made me so happy and in awe of the magic of stop battling. I guess we hang onto things even when they don’t feel good, because on some level we’re getting something out of it and I knew this was a time for achieving greater spiritual maturity. I’ve made huge strides to the utter mess I was last year and most of this, though I still feel the need to continue to rest and repair under this influence. It’s still exhausting, but I guess it’s from all the deep inner work and changes that are happening. I’ve never felt like a ‘survivor’ before – never really liked the term, but after this past year, and this influence, I feel like I ‘survived’ it. But not only survived, I released so much energy from the stuck places it was, and now it’s coming back to serve me in new ways.
        Hope you are getting through it!

    • Wow just sounds like me. Exactly like me. My moon Aquarius so saturn crossing it back and forth June 26/21. I had all the covid symptoms for it seemed mths at 76/77 and just now are they leaving. I ve had the two shots. But your sentiments about how you ve done your level best is my story exactly so. As high as the sky and the purity of spirit and 76 THIS! Just yesterday I broke into emotions over my daughters father and I said how I carried that resp. of kids versus her declaration on his big thinking. Easy when your not around. But taking a deep breath I caught a glimpse of the love ratio issue and if I hold on I remember many long hugs. So reason. Then said it was her razing me bout my patterns which I didn t get Which patterns?!
      Then I found saturn moon on line here. You are I. Totally! Its so good to know your out there. Tc C.

  2. I hear you Kasama. I have a few clients going through this right now. But there is an upside to a Saturn transit. When we finally realize that we are worthy and loveable and deserving, we no longer have anything to prove to Saturn. Check where Chiron is in your chart. Heal Chiron and you’ll be able to break up Saturn.

    • hi April,
      Suggestions on Chiron cusp 4th house?
      Love to hear you!

    • My chiron s in virgo hugged by asteroids apollon and cupido. All at 15. Piled on top one another.
      I would appreciate sone clue to handle. My kids and grand all have Estranged Aries moons.

  3. Thank you so much! Yes, this is all about self-worth, self-love, and deserving the things I want in my life – so on point! And I feel that these ‘lessons’ are being integrated, so I feel very good and optimistic, and felt a huge shift as these. barriers broke down.
    I will totally check out Chiron and see what the energy is related to that. In looking at Chiron, I guess I would look at what sign it is in, the house it is in, any aspects to other planets? I used to have a book on Chiron but no longer have it. I do know it’s a key planet of healing in one’s chart.
    Thanks again – coming out, feeling strong!

  4. C.j. Commenting further on my transit in full force of saturn moon Aq.
    Coincidentally my daughter has her saturn return as does another male 59er who I ve supported over 30 years. Their returns are that saturn over my moon. My daughters done well so? The guys done well and moving right along so? The male has stirred up.much partial information manipulating public opinion. I ve restrained so far on retailiation. What the judge said when his last girl put him in jail to cool his heels. Like I d better not see u here again..His mom and I rescued him. Some people lack consciences.
    But they grow.
    When saturn was conjunct pluto for me it was my 9th house and my inner self decided to take responsibility towards gods requirements with spiritual results. So far the clamour is outdoing hearing the spirit direction.
    The masters of the far east say after the holding things together of the eagle shall come the dove.
    People might be blind sided . Be blind to these kind of changes especial since Aries was so active for so long with mars there. Ain t life fun

  5. Thank you so much for this article and these loving comments. They have brought me a tremendous amount of peace. I, too, am going through saturn squaring my natal moon. My moon is in scorpio (12′) conjunct natal uranus by 3′. Scorpio moon feels things deeply, so this has been quite difficult for me. Frankly, I feel as though I am hitting my head against a brick wall and then feeling nothing but numbness and unresolved pain after the emotional fireworks have subsided. There is no relief in sight. One relationship, in particular, is causing me an immense amount of pain. Per usual, saturn’s lessons have been relentless, nebulous (seemingly arising out of nowhere), and unforgiving.

    I decided to take this article’s advice and look to what was occurring 7 and 14 years ago, as this transit has completely blindsided me. Fourteen years ago, when transiting saturn in leo squared my moon, I left my ex-boyfriend whom I lived with for a myriad of reasons (abuse, unemployment and substance abuse issues). Although I did the best I could at the time, I was a lot younger and struggled to understand that he was mentally ill and needed help. I know that when I left him, it caused him a tremendous amount of pain. However, we are friends to this day and I will always love him as a special companion in my life. Seven years ago when transiting saturn was conjunct my scorpio moon, I had a very intense friendship/mentorship with my female boss–nothing sexual, but it was a very deep and transformative relationship (maybe similar to Ramona and Destiny’s relationship in the movie Hustlers:). At one point, this lady retreated from me during that transit. I think she did this because she was afraid of the emotional intensity of our friendship. She stated that nothing had changed between us but her actions and my heart felt differently. We are also still friends, but our relationship has changed dramatically. The intense, sort of secretive bonding undertones are still there (and baffling to those close to us), but our relationship has taken on more of a superficial bent. However, when either of us goes through a crisis, we reach out to each other and relate to each other in a deep manner that most who know us are unaware of.

    I read another article that advised that if you want to know the outcome of a saturn square moon transit, look to the houses that saturn and moon rule. Saturn rules my 8H and 9H. The man who is causing me a lot of pain right now is currently living in another country and saturn is transiting my 9H. Both of my prior relationships affected by saturn squaring my moon did not end. However, they transformed irrevocably and on a soul level (8H), prompting spiritual awareness (9H). I now expect a similar outcome for my current relationship, however painful this acceptance has been. Moon rules my 2H and 3H. Both my prior relationships resulted in a lifetime kindred spirit type of connection (3H) and, in both cases, my work (2H) became very demanding of my time and energy, forcing me to tend to work matters while simultaneously losing key relationships in my life that were in the process of, essentially dying, in order to transform to the next level. My natal moon is in my 6H. All three of these relationships have been codependent in some way. Natal saturn is in my 4H. All of these relationships transformed my very soul. So, there you have it! If the interpretation of my chart and the outcomes therein can help anyone the way I have been helped by you, I feel much obliged. I agree with Kasama—early bedtime, more rest, eating healthfully, tons of yoga, gentle care of myself, and understanding my past experiences with saturn are the things that are helping me right now. One thing I also noticed that I find quite interesting, after every saturn square to my moon, transiting jupiter formed a conjunction and trine (respectively) to my moon shortly after saturn completed it’s transit, bringing me much needed emotional relief after the storm. Worth looking into in your ephemeris! Wishing peace, love, good fortune, and spiritual awareness to all!

    PS. The relationship events I referenced occurred in 2005 and 2013, exactly as transiting saturn squared my natal moon. But, you need an ephemeris to figure this out as the 7/14 years ago premise does not always align exactly.

    under this transit saturn opposition moon is my son who a 14 year old boy got epilepsy.I also had jupiter opposition saturn.

  7. Interesting reading and thanks everyone — Saturn squaring my 7th house Taurus Moon — its the pits. with Uranus in the mix too…..and trying to remember all previous Saturn/Moon transits to date. Certainly feeling tired, overworked and stresses with new female boss…she’s stressing us all by the way. Emotions long forgotten have surfaced and are being dealt with, but certainly feel somewhat alone and emotions are very up and down. Bach flower essences are good support. Energy is so low that I feel like i’m dragging myself to work and everything is taking twice as long i can;t be bothered to exercise or cook properly either!

  8. Interesting on the trying to remember and emotions long forgotten. I relate. My daughter showed me an old doll of mine and asked if I remembered and I did but just vague. So vague.
    Its probably worth $1500 – beautiful and eyes close. Would love to remember the circumstances. I said she definitely carries our family name.
    Second I phoned a help line and spoke of feelings of 17 and ended up releasing emotions and why.
    Thought those that were was long gone.

  9. Interesting that your Saturn has tensions around a female boss. The idea with squares is taking the inner tension into a new creation so to speak. Maybe if you could somehow relay that struggle to her she might be inclined to get into it. I m getting to know my son again since I missed his teens and he’s now 55 and he can certainly pull some bunnies out of the bag. The trick is for my mind to catch it. Cause it’s so conditioned. Kind of like that.
    Lately I hold back the reins instead of acting out of the conditioned. Sure enuf.
    I suppose it’s a little unnerving at times.
    Another primary relation and I have a ton of squares between us. He being a Leo and Leo on my 4th we started out wallpapering my kitchen on top of Aqamarine colour trims and then he cut out an Eagle for the door. Was very artsy. That was way back in 92. He learned quitar from using mine. He really changed. We went together to see Lightfoot . Now he s in his Saturn return and I don t see as much of him. So good luck u can do it.

  10. Hello friends
    AQUARIUS MOON 3RD HOUSE. CANCER SUN 8TH HOUSE. SOON SATURN WILL CONJUCT MOON.
    WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?.
    SORRY. NOT YELLING. CATARACT
