Venus opposite Saturn

Venus Opposite Saturn Natal

A natal Venus/Saturn opposition gives you important lessons to learn about measuring what’s worthwhile and valuable to yourself, versus the external standards of your family, culture, or society. You have high aspirations with regard to ideal forms and idealized expectations, and so you need to be careful not to become overly self-critical when you feel you’re not measuring up. You may have had some difficult relational experiences growing up, with a parent or other authority figure, that had a powerful influence on the way you judge your self-worth. As you cultivate inner security and self-acceptance for your creative process and output, as well as your relationship patterns, you’ll find it easier to strike a healthier balance between enjoying pleasures and maintaining necessary responsibility. In fact, due to your capacity for objectivity and clarifying discernment in your decision making, you have the potential to become a leader or authority within your vocational field of interest.
