Saturn in Scorpio: Sex, Death & Truth

by Jessica Shepherd October 06, 2012 01:31 PM EST

Over the next 2 1/2 years, don't put off straight-talking to your kids about the death, to your partner about your lackluster sex life - or your secret crush or affair. While the planet of reality transits the sign of taboo topics (secrets, the stuff no one wants to talk about but must -like death, money, sex), Scorpio (10/5/12- (12/23/14-6/16/15 Sagittarius) 9/17/15), it's not wise to shrink from the hard stuff, keep secrets, or hide anything really.

Scorpio rules all those things we are uncomfortable with and so we resist clearly facing; Saturn is the planet maturity, discipline. While Saturn is in Scorpio the time has come to: pay the credit card bill we’ve been avoiding, deal with our debts, to face the thing in our self – our addictions, denials, half-truths, our unhealed grief -we’ve put off facing. Why should we? Saturn is also the planet of karma and justice. Saturn is a stern schoolmaster who always fairly rewards the person who has done personal work --and who sternly remembers the one who refused to “face the music,” to grow up.

Scorpio rules sex & shared finances and it's time (Saturn is also the Lord of Time) to get clear on both. Textbook astrology says that during Saturn’s 2 ½ year passage in Scorpio it’s wise to examine the motives behind our sexual and financial actions. There may be no such thing as ‘casual sex’ during Saturn’s passage through Scorpio as there’s much more to any sexual (and financial) interaction than meets the eye. This is wise advice for all of us, but to understand how Saturn’s transit through Scorpio affects you, you need to examine the house and planet(s) it transits in your own birth chart. Very generally speaking, this transit will be friendlier toward Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, Pisces planets, challenging for Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Leo, Aquarius and Scorpio planets and neutral for Libra and Sagittarius planets.
