When Saturn forms a trine (or 120-degree angle) with Venus that means that the qualities of Saturn and Venus compound and join forces. Transit trines and their interpretations correlate to the planets up in the sky lining up to points in your horoscope chart.
Love Is in the Air
The Saturn trine to Venus relates to love commitments like marriage, and to the ending of fake friends, and the cultivating of real ones. Things get serious with love. You have the sober maturity of Saturn to steer your love and friendship to more hospitable shores.
Saturn relates to responsibilities, which can become more intense with this transit. But since it is to Venus and it is a trine, it is likely to be a labor of love. An example is having children and settling into a new long-term commitment to raising them.
If you have been playing the field, this transit might get you thinking of settling down and to make a commitment (Saturn) to the things that foster well-being (Venus). And, some lovers may find that now is the time to seal the deal. The Saturn-to-natal-Venus trine has you taking a sober look at who is beside you. This transit casts a general mood of gratitude, and responsibility, for those that share their life with you.
During this transit, couples may find it easier to sit down and face their shared financial situation. Venus rules money, and Saturn’s presence helps you to be realistic, and work within a set budget.
A Helping Hand
In astrology, Saturn shows your limitations, and also the boundaries of what’s possible with the given resources. During the Saturn-to-natal-Venus trine, friends or co-workers offer support for specific tasks, and these kinds of projects move forward step-by-step.
An ally may come out of the woodwork, someone that you admire, and it could be someone further along in his or her career. You can be inspired by this person as a living example and a positive force to motivate you.
Friends give you tough love if you are straying from your purpose or shirking responsibilities. Allies guide you toward making the best use of your skills and time.
This transit creates harmony in relationships that comes from being grounded in the real needs of the other person. You may find yourself helping a friend in some practical way or collaborating on some task requiring patience and endurance.
This transit favors barn-raising kinds of activities. The end result of this happy effort is a practical boost to someone’s life.
Saturn means endings, too, especially if things have hit a dead-end of some kind, and a parting is the only solution. Saturn is the buh-bye planet. And, sometimes this is a relief since it has been a long time coming.
A break-up happens with Saturn if there is no reality to the connection, it is almost as if it feels unreal (or surreal). And if there is no sense of a future or shared purpose.
Taking Your Art Seriously
Venus rules the arts, and Saturn’s harmonious meeting helps artists get serious about their gift and make it real in the day-to-day. It is a fleeting transit that reconnects you to that daily commitment.
Saturn is the shaper, the way a sculptor molds clay. You might be drawn to new mediums, and be influenced by a mentor, quite possibly a female one.
You could take your skills to the next level and move toward mastery. You’re able to think long-term, to make sacrifices today for a more satisfying goal down the road.
