Love's Gravity

The Saturn trine to Venus relates to love commitments like marriage, and to the ending of fake friends, and the cultivating of real ones.

Here let's look at when Saturn in transit makes an angle to your natal Venus.  In this case, it's the trine, which is beneficial and often it's two planets in the same element. 

Things get serious with love!  You have the sober maturity of Saturn to steer your love ship and friendship to more hospitable shores.

 

Saturn relates to responsibilities, which can become more intense with this transit.  But since it's to Venus and a trine, it's likely to be a labor of love.  An example is having children, and settling in to a new long term commitment to raising them. 

If you've been playing the field, this transit might get you thinking of settling down in general.  And to make a commitment (Saturn) to the things that foster well-being (Venus).

Break-Ups

Saturn means endings, too, especially if things have hit a dead end of some kind, and a parting is the only solution.  Saturn is the buh-bye planet.  And sometimes this is a relief, since it's been a long time coming. 

A break-up happens with Saturn if there's no reality to the connection, that it feels unreal (or surreal).  And if there's no sense of a future or shared purpose. 

Real Friends

This transit creates harmony in relationships that comes from being grounded in the real needs of the other.

It's one for helping in some practical way, or collaborating on some task requiring patience and endurance.

This transit favors barn-raising kinds of activities, where the end result of happy effort is a practical boost to someone's life.

Taking Your Art Seriously

Venus rules the arts, and Saturn's harmonious meeting helps artists get serious about their gift, and make it real in the day-to-day.

It's a fleeting transit that reconnects you to that daily commitment.

Saturn is the shaper, the way a sculptor molds clay.  You might be drawn to new mediums, and be influenced by a mentor, quite possibly a female one. 

You could take your skills to the next level, and move toward mastery.  You're able to think long term, to make sacrifices today for a more satisfying goal down the road. 

Friends Who Help Us Deal

Saturn shows us limitations, the boundaries of what's possible with the given resources. During the  Saturn to natal Venus trine, friends or co-workers offer support for specific tasks, and these kinds of projects move forward step-by-step.

An ally make come that you admire, and it could be someone further along in his or her career.  You can be inspired by a living example, and use it to keep you motivated.

Friends give tough love if you're straying from your purpose, or shirking responsibilities. Allies guide you toward making the best use of your skills and time. Couples may find it easier to sit down and face their shared financial situation.

Venus rules money, and Saturn's presence helps us be realistic, and work within a set budget. And some lovers may find that now is the time to seal the deal.

The Saturn to natal Venus trine has us taking a sober look at who's beside us.

This transit casts a general mood of gratitude, and responsibility, for those that 'deal' with life alongside us.
