Neptune Conjunct Saturn
© 2004 Curtis Manwaring
Transiting Neptune conjunct your natal Saturn. This can be a very difficult transit. Saturn represents the reality that we perceive due to our agnoia, but Neptune represents a different level of reality where paradoxes are common. This is a time when your beliefs may be questioned and found inadequate. As you become increasingly disoriented, you will probably question what is real and what is not. Often this transit coincides with a great disappointment that leads to disillusionment, self doubt and lack of self confidence. Fear is also a common problem at this time, especially irrational fear with no obvious basis. Often it feels like the structures upon which you have built your life, and have come to depend on, are no longer dependable.
If Saturn is lord of your 1st house, you are probably in the midst of an identity crisis now, especially if you were born at night. There is a tendency to not be aware of who one is. Rarely, one might literally not know who they are as the result of amnesia. You may not feel too sure of yourself.
If lord of the 2nd, you are prone to misplace things and lack good financial planning and accounting now. There is lack of certainty regarding money matters.
If lord of the 3rd, you will develop wisdom as you begin to understand the true meanings of what you learned as a child. Often it is a time of isolation and solitude, which is good for contemplation.
If lord of the 4th, your supports may be shaky now and your personal life in disarray. The foundation for your life may be crumbing around you and you may have to lay a new foundation.
If lord of the 5th, this is not a good time for speculation or investments. You may get nothing in return. Love is often not returned.
If lord of the 6th, a chronic illness may leave you vulnerable. If you have problems now, it is likely to be with bones, teeth or joints. You may be on disability for a while or be unable to work for extended periods of time.
If lord of the 7th, your partner may disappoint you in a profound way during this period. You may not see your mate for who he/she really is.
If lord of the 8th, be careful to do your taxes accurately or you may be subject to audit. Financial partnerships prove unproductive or dammaging to your credit.
If lord of the 9th, you will go through a profound change in your beliefs during this period. Much of what you thought was true about the world turns out to be false.
If lord of the 10th, be careful about your reputation now and how others perceive you. You may be set up for a fall or disgrace. Career success may have little meaning for you now and you may wish to retire.
If lord of the 11th, your social circle will probably widen now as you come into contact with many different kinds of people you wouldn't have before. You may be more compassionate now.
If lord of the 12th, you may be inundated with alot of unfinished business. Ghosts from the past haunt you.
