Saturn in Taurus: Loyal, Cautious, and Security-Seeking

Saturn in Taurus

Saturn defines boundaries and limits. Its transit through earthy Taurus raises some serious questions about whether any of us has enough money, comfort, or security. Is it even possible to feel safe in these times of rapidly increasing change? Saturn gives us a clear picture of where we stand ... which works fine as long as cynicism doesn't replace realism.

Taurus not only rules money and possessions, it also rules our values -- the things that matter most to us. So when Saturn spends time in this sign, these beliefs will come up for review. It's only when we realize what's truly important and brings us happiness that we'll find real security. This is Saturn in Taurus' lesson.

When Saturn is in Taurus

Saturn in Taurus is a time when our responsibility (Saturn) is simply to be real (Taurus). There will be a spotlight on the Earth and the simple pleasures and basic acts that make this planet a welcoming home and shelter to us all. This transit encourages us to spend time with nature so that we're reminded of the organic nature of all living things.

When Saturn makes its move through the sign of the Bull, we might spend time doing a little housekeeping, cleaning out our spaces and getting rid of things we no longer use or need. This not only helps eliminate the chaos of clutter, but it also opens the door for new things that will serve us in a more meaningful way in the future.

A systematic approach to success may serve us best while Saturn is in this sign. We may not be able to turn our lives around completely overnight, but a gradual yet consistent process of change will work to forever alter our realities. This is not about taking responsibility for everything around us. It's about starting small and making simple changes first. The pieces will add up over time until we find that each brick has contributed to the new structures in our lives.

One of the most important things to remember during Saturn in Taurus is to not judge ourselves too harshly. Saturn is a great teacher if we're willing to be patient and make real change. We can't fake it when Saturn is in Taurus. There's nothing surface level about what's going on -- this is a time to sit down and examine our histories, making sure to note our successes as well as our failures.

Saturn Retrograde in Taurus

Saturn, the planet of restriction and discipline, turns retrograde every year for about five months. When this planet begins moving backward in any sign, it's a time when we're being asked to look within and re-examine our beliefs and expectations around success. So when Saturn retrogrades in Taurus, a sign concerned with security, we may evaluate if what we're doing is bringing us the comfort we desire.

Saturn Retrograde in Taurus might also have us asking if we're seeking too much comfort from our material possessions. Have we become so materialistic that our things own us instead of us owning them? Have we become miserly or greedy because we fear we'll lose it all? Have we set aside happiness to pursue things that make us feel more financially secure? These could be the questions raised during this retrograde period.

If you were born with Saturn in Taurus

Saturn is disciplined, while Taurus is tenacious, making you as hardworking and dependable as they come! Family, friends, and colleagues know that when you commit to doing something, you will not only follow through on it, but will do it to the best of your abilities.

Money, money, money! Financial stability is incredibly important to you, and you have the stamina and patience needed to carry you through any goals you set for yourself. As someone with their Saturn in Taurus, you don't believe in short-term solutions -- you understand the value of playing the long game.

One of your biggest life lessons is understanding that true satisfaction doesn't rely solely on wealth or material possessions. If you don't have as much as you think you should, it has a tendency to damage your self-esteem and create worry about your future. Remind yourself that money is necessary, but it isn't the be all and end all. You have plenty of other qualities and things in your life worth feeling good about!

Your Saturn in Taurus makes you humble, grounded, and unaffected by celebrity or social status. Unlike other zodiac signs, you focus on money for what it can do for you, not the impression it makes on the world. Even when you've achieved a high level of success, you still manage to remain relatable.
