Venus Sextile Saturn — Bruce Springsteen: I’ll Work for your Love

“What others may want for free
I’ll work for your love”

I was out for a cycle this morning, and I was thinking about how many people want free things from me when what I have to offer has value. They don’t seem to stop and think about how they can give back to me. And let me tell you, I’m not one of those people who need to give “more” and watch for the return later. No. I give now, and a lot. My lot in life is to learn to say no, and turn people away. I’m quick to give, without thought of reward. So that little “give more, it will come back to you” is for the many, who do not.

Anyway, as I was thinking about who has really given to me and worked for what I can, have, and do give them — there’s few and far between. My bestie says that people have a propensity to “rape” someone kind, and helpful. He’s a triple Aries, so his language is a bit aggressive / impactful at times.

As I was cycling and thinking about all this, I heard these lyrics come on my music player. As a Venus trine Saturn, who works for the love of others, I thought to myself — I bet Bruce has Venus-Saturn harmoniously aspected. And sure enough he does. Well, he has the sextile!

Venus sextile Saturn
His Venus is in Scorpio. Saturn in Virgo.
I’ve got a lot of Virgo, and my Venus is in the house of Scorpio.
Bruce also has Venus square Pluto. I have Venus conjunct Pluto.
Now, Springsteen also has Jupiter in Capricorn so that also contributes to how important it is that he works for what he loves, and that he respects and is responsible. This Jupiter quintiles his Venus. Venus and Saturn energy is very strong in Bruce’s life. Pluto too.

So Springsteen’s lyrics are real, true, and come by honestly. He will work for the loves of his life — including music. And so do I too.

Pour me a drink Theresa in one of those glasses you dust off
And I’ll watch the bones in your back like the stations of the cross
‘Round your hair the sun lifts a halo, at your lips a crown of thorns
Whatever the deal’s going down, to this one I’m sworn

I’ll work for your love dear
I’ll work for your love
What others may want for free
I’ll work for your love

The dust of civilizations and love’s sweet remains
Slip off of your fingers and come drifting down like rain
The pages of Revelation lie open in your empty eyes of blue
I watch you slip that comb through your hair and this I promise you

I’ll work for your love dear
I’ll work for your love
What others may want for free
I’ll work for your love

[Instrumental]

Well tears they fill the rosary, at your feet my temple of bones
Here in this perdition we go on and on
Now I see your pieces crumbled and our book of faith’s been tossed
And I’m just down here searching for my own piece of the cross
In the late afternoon sun fills the room with a mist in the garden before the fall
I watch your hands smooth the front of your blouse and seven drops of blood fall

I’ll work for your love dear
I’ll work for your love
What others may want for free
I’ll work for your love
What others may want for free
I’ll work for your love
What others may want for free
I’ll work for your love

Natal Astrology: Venus Conjunct Saturn in the 7th House

I was looking through search terms today and saw: Venus Conjunct Saturn in the 7th House.

Since I have a lot of Venus, Saturn, 7th house, and Conjunction signatures I thought I’d offer a little blurb in case you come around looking for this information.

I suspect this is related to a love relationship, so that’s the direction I’ll take it (as it’s the most usual interest for natives when viewing the 7th house).

Basically this combination (the signs will also make a difference, by the way) says in predictive story-form:

You’ll have a pleasant relationship with an older or mature partner.  You may also be the older or mature partner, who is also quite pleasant and loving.

It’s likely to take you some time to settle down and find your ‘true love’ but when you do, you’ll not take the relationship lightly and will attract a long-lasting partner.  Your partnership will be bound by duty and fairness.

You can bring and receive great financial rewards in your relationship but you may also suffer hardships until you and your partner learn how to combine your resources with restraint and prudence while allowing money to bring more happiness into your relationship.


This is not an exhaustive description (just something off the top of my head) nor does it put the aspect / house placement much into perspective (at least, in my eyes).

For example, if you have Venus-Jupiter poorly aspected — you may feel especially despondent about whether you’ll ever find or be happy in a committed relationship.  But if it’s harmoniously aspected, you will have had many opportunities to partner but have held out!
