Saturn in Pisces

Pisces gifts are ephemeral, concerned with beauty, healing, and psychic abilities. Saturn's logical influence can help show you how to harness your more whimsical gifts into concrete habits that can benefit yourself and others. It can also be a good time to engage in deepening your spiritual practice. Think about ways to incorporate art into your life daily—this will bring you joy and color your world in wonderful ways.

Saturn in Pisces Personality

Strict Saturn has an uncomfortable fit in boundless Pisces. Therefore, individuals with this placement may feel pulled in disparate directions: to escape and to set foot in the material world. To dream or to do; that is the question. And it's one that Pisces Saturn never can quite answer, so they spend most of their lives tightrope-walking the thin line between these two terrains. It's an odd (and sometimes lonely) existence that those with this placement have. So, a discontented Pisces Saturn isn't unheard of.

Still, of all the Saturn placements, this one has the most profound spirituality—one that isn't accidental but the result of tireless emotional and spiritual work. True nirvana requires real discipline, and Saturn in Pisces knows this.

Positive Traits

Those with their Saturn in Pisces combine the structure of nature of Saturn with Pisces' creativity. These people are truly capable of making their fantasies a reality. It comes as no surprise that Saturn in Pisces natives often seek careers in the arts, particularly fine arts and film, because they act as gateways for their fantasies into the physical world.

Furthermore, where Pisces energy is usually boundless, Saturn teaches limits. As these Saturnian Pisces' natives age, they learn to practice firmer boundaries than their solar or lunar counterparts.

Negative Traits

Guilt and old hurt swim near the surface of Saturn in Pisces' conscious mind. If they're not careful, they can easily drown in the past. Though these individuals are capable of and have likely survived painful circumstances, they're forever underestimating their own strength.

Pain and joy are intimately linked with Saturn in Pisces, and they're forever being disappointed by the ugliness of the world. For all Saturn's harshness, a deep sensitivity still dwells in this placement, and those born under these astrological skies can never quite shake it.


Being traditionally ruled by Jupiter, the planet of expansion, the sign of the Fish is an odd place for Saturn. How can the planet of restriction ever hope to corral such a boundless sign? Saturn does, if anything, try hard. Though Saturn can't quite pull Pisces down from the clouds, it can at least keep them at a constant altitude. In this way, the Piscean tendency toward dreaminess is made a bit more useful. Rather than employing their vast imaginations to escape reality, Saturn in Pisces tries to apply their fantasies to the physical world. That house with the beautiful garden about which they dream? Perhaps this placement encourages them to take their savings more seriously.

Of course, Saturn can by no means "fix" Pisces' more unsavory traits. Confidence and self-sacrificing tendencies are still struggles here, but this planet goes a long way with tempering them.
