March 2023 – The entry of Saturn into Pisces and Pluto into Aquarius

During the last two and a half years, Saturn transiting in Aquarius has emphasized how important mental authority is. On an energetic level, Saturn has shown us that structuring ideas is essential to create mental maps that take us somewhere.

Pluto’s transit through Capricorn worked on archaic archetypes that are strongly rooted in the status quo and that create a mismatch between our personal desires for fulfillment and the possibilities of achievement offered by the reality in which we live. In other words, with Pluto in Capricorn, we have seen how our individual reality is more developed than social structures, which still seek to homogenize to create “order”.

Saturn’s entry into Pisces (March 9) occurs a couple of weeks before Pluto’s entry into Aquarius, which occurs on March 23. Is it necessary to ask why? From my point of view, this astrological configuration greatly softens the effects of Pluto (at least for now)… I have already mentioned in previous articles and videos that when Pluto entered Aquarius, it has generally come with revolutions and social explosions due to pressures against individual liberties. This happens every 248 years. Now, in 2023, Pluto enters Aquarius with Saturn (and Neptune) in Pisces.

Saturn in Pisces can be translated as a cathedral, which can be built from the spirit or from escapist banality. This transit of Saturn will show us the spiritual reality of the present.

The transit of Saturn in Pisces helps us to see the auric fissures that deplete our energy and do not let us connect with the divine in each one.

Looking at it with a Piscean style, this can be translated as “The shadow and the light: Saturn in Pisces and Pluto in Aquarius revealing hidden truths.”

A gloomy period?

It depends. With Saturn entering Pisces, a period of “disillusionment” is normal as Saturn focuses on reality, and for Pisces, this means abandoning any escapist tendencies that make reality “prettier.” The path to mastery over illusion can feel like a bleak period as we resist letting go of the “stories” we tell ourselves in order to feel better. However, if we manage to connect with our personal reality and abandon the habit of “sweetening” what happens, we connect with something much more magical and mystical than anything we could imagine as a substitute. It is not easy to stop “dreaming” that things can be better because that is instantly gratifying. However, Saturn tells us that things will go better if we take our dreams seriously, and that requires patience, discipline, and effort.

Basically, Saturn in Pisces makes us see that we have not come to experience a paradise, but to create it.

Saturn’s Shadow in Pisces

Of course, Saturn in Pisces can also show its dark side. Saturn speaks of effort, discipline, and commitment to our goals. Pisces speaks of dreams, imagination, inspiration, and the highest octave of beauty, something that connects us with the spiritual world. If we find it difficult to connect with the qualities of Saturn, its transit in Pisces can activate our desire to surrender to illusions and everything that leads us to escape from reality! It’s not because we’re more prone to it… but because Saturn, as the great teacher, will make us soak up that part of ourselves. In this way, Saturn can show us later, by contrast, that escapist side that has been hidden from our consciousness and does not allow us to self-realize.

Saturn in Pisces Transit for Each Sign – Sun, Moon, and Rising Sign

Both Aquarius and Pisces are signs related to the transpersonal, the collective. Wherever Aquarius and Pisces are found in our birth chart, there we find psychological effects that go beyond mere individual consciousness. With Aquarius, we talk about social ideals. With Pisces, of collective desires.

In this article, we will see how the transit of Saturn in Pisces can manifest in your personal life according to the Sun (your self-expression), the Moon (your emotional world), or the Rising Sign (your personal identity). Of course, the way we experience this transit has a lot to do with the relationship we have with Saturn in our natal chart and the aspects it receives from other planets. Each one will experience it in a personal and individual way. I recommend an astrological reading to make a personalized study of this transit.

Saturn in Pisces Transit for Aries

For the natives of Aries, whether it is the Sun, the Moon, or the Ascendant, the transit of Saturn in Pisces can be experienced as a challenge. Saturn in Pisces asks us to internalize our emotions, something that Aries is not used to doing. We encounter emotional and spiritual challenges that need to be addressed responsibly. This focus on sensitivity can create a feeling of lack of energy for Aries… however, this happens to be able to go within. Our impulses and actions can arise from our unconscious, or due to collective duties or responsibilities. For the independent Aries, this can be inconvenient. To avoid feeling “pressured” – and even judged or “coached”, some form of spiritual or creative practice can be of great benefit. You may also feel a certain sadness that you don’t know where it comes from. Get into your feelings and allow whatever comes up to flow. You may just be releasing emotions that you have collected somewhere.

Saturn in Pisces Transit for Taurus

For the natives of Taurus, whether it is the Sun, the Moon or the Ascendant, the transit of Saturn in Pisces can be a period of emotional fertility. Also, it can be a time of great relief as the square with Saturn in Aquarius ends. During this period, Saturn in Pisces can help Taurus natives develop a greater understanding of and connection to their intuition and emotions, and can also help them examine their deepest values. However, there can also be moments of uncertainty or insecurity due to the emotional and intuitive nature of Pisces and the need for stability and simplicity of Taurus. Saturn in Pisces focuses us on the formless and this can make Taurus uneasy. A spiritual or creative practice that allows you to connect with the body can help you discover your limitless capacity to appreciate sensations and connect with the magic of being incarnate.

Saturn in Pisces Transit for Gemini

The focus of this Saturn transit is on taking sensitivity and empathy seriously. Gemini’s mental curiosity can feel constrained, and sometimes even criticized by those who judge them for not taking things seriously. Saturn asks us to take into account the consequences of our words. These two and a half years that are beginning are a good period to connect with sensitivity and compassion without losing our inner truth. With this transit, we begin a period of challenges and personal and spiritual growth. And it can be very positive despite feeling melancholic from time to time.

For the natives of Leo, whether it is the Sun, the Moon or the Ascendant, the transit of Saturn in Pisces will make you face the limitations that do not allow you to give yourself fully to others.

Saturn seeks to create a strong emotional framework that allows Leo to connect intimately with their imagination and indulge in creative ecstasy without losing their personal expression. The transit of Saturn can show you the emotional fissures that drain your energy so you can learn to “delimit” your energetic aura and not confuse your emotions with those of others.

You may encounter challenges in your relationships, especially your closest ones. You may feel that you are in a moment of reassessing relationships, and some of them may need to be rethought or even ended. The important thing during this time is to know that Virgo will be learning to establish a clear structure in relationships, to define roles, to say yes when appropriate, and to say no when necessary. As a result, intimate relationships become more satisfying.

Saturn in Pisces Transit for Libra

For the natives of Libra, whether it is the Sun, the Moon or the Ascendant, the transit of Saturn in Pisces can arouse an indefinable longing that arouses a certain dissatisfaction in everyday life. Authority figures (whether parents, government, teachers, etc.) may seem to redirect our energy towards goals and needs that do not correspond to ours, creating some discomfort. In any case, the transit of Saturn invites us to delve into our spiritual needs and, although we feel that we have too many responsibilities during this period, we are going through a time for growth and maturation which requires patience and maintaining a positive attitude during this transit. That way, we can make the most of its lessons and opportunities.

Saturn in Pisces Transit for Sagittarius

For Sagittarius natives, whether it is the Sun, the Moon or the Ascendant, the transit of Saturn in Pisces forms a square to the personal planets. Here we can find moments that, in appearance, can be a bit gloomy. Actually, we get the typical Saturn effect when it brings us down to earth and being in Pisces, we need to evaluate our personal beliefs and the idealization that keeps us hopeful. It is not about losing the typical Sagittarius optimism, but simply allowing ourselves to see things as they are and getting down to work from the concrete rather than mere enthusiasm. This is a period of challenges and personal and spiritual growth. And it can be very positive despite feeling a bit pessimistic from time to time.

Saturn in Pisces Transit for Capricorn

For the natives of Capricorn, whether it is the Sun, the Moon or the Ascendant, the transit of Saturn in Pisces can connect us with a kinder aspect of reality. Our sense of natural responsibility begins to explore the most intangible part of reality. We will be evaluating things from a more universal perspective. We may feel more creative and our perception may become clearer. This is a good time for meditation and introspection since during this period the emphasis is on self-knowledge. We may feel more optimistic than usual because we now have access to greater sensitivity.

Saturn in Pisces Transit for Aquarius

For the natives of Aquarius, whether it is the Sun, the Moon or the Ascendant, the transit of Saturn in Pisces is a breather after having Saturn in their own sign for more than two and a half years. Whatever happens, you will feel relief. During this new period, Saturn begins a new round of the Zodiac, which brings hope and the desire to take on new responsibilities after having gone through a very intense period of personal evaluation. This is a good time to connect with what you have learned and give yourself more love and compassion. It is also a good time to include a bit of mysticism and fantasy in your idiosyncrasy, as well as connect with the beauty of this world.
