Saturn in Libra

“Marriage is not to us a Sacrament, but, upon the other hand, the love of a man and woman, and the inseparable physical desire, are sacred. This conviction has come to us through ancient philosophy and modern literature, and it seems to us a most sacrilegious thing to persuade two people who hate each other…to live together, and it is to us no remedy to permit them to part if neither can re-marry.” W.B. Yeats

Libra is Saturn´s sign of exaltation. Saturn is also said to have both terms, face and triplicity in various degrees of this sign. So in Libra it is possible for Saturn to actually hold as much essential dignity as in his signs of rulership Capricorn and Aquarius. In Libra then, Saturn is at home, he is not given the authority or responsibility that is given in his own signs, but he is given all of the fine things, ease and happiness that it is possible for that benific Venus to give.

Libra has rulership over bedrooms, boudoirs, boutiques, beauty parlours, closets, florists and private chambers. But in truth these places are all derived from the balanced, airy and cool, yet pleasant time of year which marks tropical Libra. The sign is one of plenty, and this is so because of the hard work of Virgo in the previous month. After the harvest there is a clean and pure air which is distinct from summer´s heat and dryness. But in fact Saturn here is given by Venus a time of ease and relaxation, he is given time in which to share the resources reaped over the year, to trade and barter with them, but also to give in order to gain alliances, friends, and of course what Libra primarily cares for: marriage and relationships.

Saturn in Libra is in easy pleasurable terrain; namely a matrimonial bed with soft clean sheets, with pictures on the wall, nice food on the table, and the company with which to share it; all the things that make life beautiful and easier to live. And Saturn being Saturn has knowledge of the rest of the Zodiac and realises that this is one sign where his tired head has easy rest, has some of the best. Now of course having possession of nice things on their own is fairly pointless, which is why Saturn needs people to share them in this sign. A picture might be beautiful, and so might a bed be soft, but it is so much better for Saturn to have someone else to acknowledge it and to share in it. But of course this idea can work in the exact opposite direction; namely that the ease for Saturn here is derived from having Libran companionship and support, that the beauty which is created and supported becomes possible only through undying devotion of a Libran Venus lover to her Saturn partner.

It is true that Saturn is fortunate in this placement. The inheritance is to be born with solid parental relationships and forefathers who were civilised and cultivated. Through these partnerships which came before Saturn has learnt to become expert in relating and in diplomacy. The truth is that Venus forces Saturn here into remembering people´s names, into remembering their likes and dislikes, so that over time, this Saturn learns how to serve others and to please others while serving himself.

Saturn´s nature is tireless. Saturn is constructive. Venus likes things that are beautiful and serve to make life happier for people. So in Libra Saturn is given tools that Venus approves of; sometimes these are artistic tools; instruments, paint, colour, and the product of which raises humanity out of filth and into civilisation, because these things are all designed to please others. But Saturn also has a great affinity with defenses, with building things in order to defend his tradition, family and culture. Saturn in this respect will erect buildings that are beautiful, that encourage others to feel both admiration and respect.

Saturn in Libra in some senses does not need to worry about defense that much. For in building palaces, gardens and planting trees, his ability to invite rivals, to entertain and to treat them is an easy path to gaining alliances, and to maintain peace. And in this peace Saturn is truly safe from any and all manner of dangers, he is able to live life without fear and to enjoy his many years with Venus always at his side.

I have Sun in Libra, Ascendant in Cancer, Moon in Gemini and Saturn in Scorpio.

I was wondering if the upcoming Saturn into Libra on Oct 2009 will affect me as well since Saturn is exalted in Libra. Could you explain what could happen to me at that time?

17 07 2009

Well to begin with you ought to look at the house that Saturn is currently transiting, that´s primary. Say Saturn is transiting your 7th house, then it would be very significant for relationships. If Saturn is transiting your 4th house then the focus is on your relations with your parents, your home, and possibly any foundations in your life.

10 08 2009

Well. I am thinking a lot about Saturn comming in to Libra. I have my second saturn-return at 24 deg Virgo, conjunktion both Mercury/South Node/Venus and IC at 0 degre Aries. My sun is in 5 deegre Libra, but the sun are sextile to both Leo rising and Mars at 2 Sag. I am waiting, hoping everything will turn out just fine.?

10 08 2009

Your comment is confusing. Please post your chart up. You should know that there is a New Moon at 25 Virgo with Saturn there and Uranus in opposition. If you can do a Saturn return chart also I can tell you for sure what will happen. In either case a Saturn return at 25 Virgo has the unstable opposition from Pisces. All structures in your life will be challenged and / or broken according to the principles of the revolutionary planet and dependant on the houses and particular aspects of your exact Saturn return chart.

9 08 2011

Why is that confusing? I know alot about astrology, and know I am in the middle of Saturn cycle with my sign Libra?
Are you a real Astrolger? What do you know, really? (exuse mee), you should know that i told you that i have a stellium in Virgo Mercury/Venus and Saturn betweem 18.24 deegre In Virgo and then the sun in the fouth house Libra, and. before Saturn was moving on into Libra, where I have my Sun at 5 degree Libra?
Now I have experinces that.My yongest son (know 21, also a Libra with sun at 3 degree in Libra born 1989, and it has been HELL, beacuse he already has a black memory of murder of a young newbourh girl when he was soo full of courage to tell the police what he knows! He has bee a great and honest guy…still .on his mind/a divorse betweenn his parents both Libras,. a father that doest care at all. and the drogs?! And for the last 3 years I HAVE been the only one who has supprted him? His Libra farher also a Libra is a sociopath and dont bother att all.cant wrihte to mutch here, but your last answer was kind of confusing, thanks God that Saturn is going into Skorpio after 2012

10 08 2009

21 08 2009

To be honest, I think a lot of Librans have been having a very tough few years, especially financially and we are all concerned about the arrival of Saturn in our sign. Can he really make life even harder than it has been for us?
Regards Tara

21 08 2009

If you are an early Libran 0-5 degrees the next couple of years will be intense. It could give great opportunities and disasters all the same. Saturn is in a T-Square in these degrees.

For Libra in general it is comparable to a Leo on his birthday. Saturn loves Libra and will do good things while in Libra.

8 10 2009

Thank Goodness! I’m a Libra who hasn’t had it good for the majority of her life. That’s all I can say about that…

Honestly, any form of stability (in addition to my recent wonderful marriage) will be good for me…

18 09 2009

My Sun is in leo, moon: in gemini, rising: virgo, mercury: virgo, mars: aquarius. venus: leo, saturn: gemini. How will saturn in Libra affect my love life? Please e-mail with your reponse. Thank you :)

18 09 2009

I have sun in Leo, Rising: Virgo, Mercury: Virgo, Mars: Aqaurius, Venus: Leo, Saturn: Gemini, Neptune: Sag, Uranus: Libra, Pluto: Virso. How will saturn in Libra affect my love life? Thank you, :)

18 09 2009

My husband & I have both have Uranus & Pluto in Libra in our birth charts. He also has Moon in Libra. How will the Saturn transit in Libra affect us?

What happens if Saturn is exalted, retrograde and placed in 4th house with Moon? I am a libran.

21 09 2009

It is probably a good thing. Any exalted planet will give benefits for the houses under its rulership.

22 09 2009

What, if any, advice would you have for one who is a sun sign libra AND has his saturn return (in libra) approaching next month. Admittedly, I’m a skosh apprehensive about what sounds like has the makings to be double whammy.

born 10.11.1981 12:35am local time PST (Seattle, wa).

I’ve seen advice for libra’s entering this period, and advice for saturn returners entering this period, but nothing for lil ole me whom is doing both.

Thank you for any advice. . . .

Be well.

2 11 2009

i ‘ve been looking around for the same info. born10/09/81…can’t find anything it makes me nervous though.

3 08 2011

Hey my name is Candice and I was born 10/9/81 as well! Weird huh? Going through my Saturn return right now

2 10 2009

what are some favorable dates for Libra (born Oct 22, 1943) in the next month or two to overcome a big obstacle. Would the entering of Saturn into Libra sign help???

2 10 2009

You should remember that Saturn is squared by Pluto from the 1st degree to the fifth where Saturn slows down and goes retrograde.

6 10 2009

I was born with the sun in cancer, moon in mercury, ascendant in Sagittarius and saturn in cancer (in the eighth house).
I was wondering how Saturn in Libra will my two next years., can you help?

8 10 2009

How will Saturn in Libra (my 2nd house) effect my natal Saturn in Pisces at 29 degrees in my 7th house. In a composite chart with my ex (my sons father) I notice we have Saturn and Mars in the 2nd house (it’s been a difficult two years and I’m hoping for improvement). Thank you!

14 10 2009

31 10 2009

Hi, I like your site. Re: Saturn in Libra. I am a Libra with Taurus asc and 2(!) sixth houses, one in Virgo (and boy have learned about service over the last couple of years!), but now Saturn moves into my second 6th house – Libra. I am currently looking to change jobs from one of dealing with the minutae (Saturn tr. Virgo) to something more hmmmm…relaxing. (also, more pleasant working conditions/environment and less pedantic folk! Any ideas?

31 10 2009

why is my email address still showing on your website after I sent my comments!

31 10 2009

I am a Libra with cancer ascendant.My moon is in my 5th house in scorpio. My sun( in 4h) is in conjunction with saturn(4h) and jupiter (5h) in libra. What should I expect from transiting saturn in libra?

9 11 2009

I am a libra cusp, 10/21 with Saturn transiting my 8th house, and it will be conjunct with many of my natal 8th house planets. What do you think this will mean for me?

31 12 2009

My sun is in taurus, in the 10th house, leo assendent, moon in libra, saturn in libra, jupiter and venus in taurus, mercury in aries, neptune in libra, uranus in cancer, pluto in leo . What will my financial life be in 2010 it has been very bad for the last 3 years any relief in sight?

15 02 2010

I am a first house Libra (Sun conj Uranus to exact orb) born in 1968. My birth Saturn was in Aries, seventh house, so this upcoming Libra Saturn puts Saturn squarely in my first house. Jupiter is twelfth house on the cusp edge of the first. I have a feeling this year’s Saturn/Libra is going to be good – almost the opposite of a Saturn Return – and that everything I’ve literally suffered and worked so hard for since childhood is finally about to crash in like a windfall. It’s been a miserable, grindingly difficult life filled with disasters at every turn – but every instinct in me says 2010 will be different and that this is going to be a fantastic year. Will it?

16 04 2010

Sun=29 Libra, Saturn=0 Scorpio, Venus=5 Libra, Neptune=23 Libra, ALL in 6th house. Age 57. Interested to hear your thoughts? Thanks!

If sun sign is saggitarius, moon sign is libra , ascendent is capricon, how good is this during saturn in libra?

thanks & best regards

7 06 2010

This is quite important: Where is Saturn? What aspects does Moon make? and also what aspects is Saturn making in the chart? Which house is natal Saturn and where is transiting Saturn?

Saturn in Libra is the exaltation of saturn. All people who are “Saturnian” serious, hardworking, stoic types, ought to be lifted by this transit.

30 06 2010

I am a Libra born on 28th sep, lately since last yr (dec) onwards , i m facing problems , my relation of 2 yrs broke with a wonderful person . My work is getting hampered, people are despising me , i have lost all my charm and charisma that i was related to. Is this all due to the presence of Saturn in Libra ? Am i getting punished for any wrong deeds of mine ? Will these 2 yrs be very painful and agonizing for me ?

1 07 2010
Night Sky

Some people believe that punishment for misdeeds comes in this life rather than the next. I am inclined to think that there is something to this. 12th house matters may be explained by this. I think being moral is good, and is a reward in itself.

1 07 2010

Can u kindly help me out with any kind of valuable suggestion to walk through this difficult situation as life is becoming increasingly difficult for me cause my work and career getting badly hampered !

22 07 2010

25 07 2010

Further, i am running venus antardasha (minor period) under mars mahadasha (major period) currently. Can anyone suggest about my career growth prospect.

28 07 2010
Night Sky

Well, you need to state where you have Libra in your chart, and what aspects does Saturn by transit make. It is my opinion that Saturn will do good things in Libra. Despite, or even in agreement with the current t-square. It may be very transformational and amazing.

30 07 2010

Libra is my 2nd house with neptune in it. uranus and pluto are in in 12th house, i.e. in leo in my natal chart.

How does Saturn in Libra & Uranus in Aries 2011 affect Natal Uranus in Libra?

27 02 2011

I am in the midst of my second saturn return…it is presently transiting by 10th house…I thought it might upset my job situation, but, recently received two raises…am I correct in assuming saturn in libra is exalted in the the 10th…also my natal saturn. Will the rest of the transit affecting my job continue on good terms? or will they make it seem like the lull before the storm? I presently have 27 years in a large corporation? Also, I have a boyfriend who like me is in an unhappy marriage…our both spouses are quite sick…his saturn is transiting 7th house soon to go to the eight…does this mean “our relationship” will be delayed further due to the illness and possible demise of his wife? or the delay strictly of our relationship… my husband is at the end of life…I’m not sure his wife is “that” bad yet…although she does have health issues…I am truly a novice and have more to learn…can anyone help?
