Mars Conjunct Saturn

Mars Conjunct SaturnMars conjunct Saturn in the natal chart gives a strong determination and sustained effort in the pursuit of goals. The Mars desires, sexuality and creativity are positively influenced by Saturn’s discipline and strong work ethic. The darker side of Saturn can also influence the desires but this by no means translates to negative qualities.

Sexually, this can mean tremendous stamina and remaining sexually attractive and active later in life. It also allows for a sensible exploration and expression of the taboo sides of sexuality involving pleasure and pain,  domination and submission. Traditionally this aspect is said to cause frustration and difficulty in expressing anger, and even nastiness. However looking at the charts of people with this aspect there overwhelming theme is that of healthy expression of the darker desires and sustained effort leading to prolific work in the career.
If Mars conjunct Saturn in the chart were harshly aspected or on a troublesome fixed star then we might expect the more heartless and malicious nature of this aspect to be displayed. In this case, the key would be to find a positive outlet for the energy through some creative endeavor. Mars does represent goal-directed energy. Once a real passion in life is found, even if a bit dark, then self-disciple and determination should ensure that the manifestation is not destructive to the self or others.

  1. well, I sure am glad today is over!!

    Went to the doctor, and before I could say (about inflammation, funnily enough!!!) blood tests, manganese, magnesium, essential fatty acids, I was unceremoniously shut up and forced to go through a stupid, irrelevant rigmarole that tells nobody anything about anything. This idiot sat there with a conceited, self-satisfied look on his face during the process.

    I didn’t quite slam the door as I left, but I certainly made my feelings felt. Very quietly. He blenched and I thought he was going to throw up with shock.

    I have spent half the day composing my letter of complaint to the Practice Manager, cc the PCT.

    Didn’t mention Mars/Saturn :) in the letter.

    • Unfortunately doctors don’t study astrology these days, they always used to though.

      • True, Jamie.

        They don’t study nutrition, either (sadly), unless they go on into Integrated Medicine.

        Both are major omissions in the curriculum! – Maybe I should send them a copy of Gauquelin with the letter :)

        Today’s conjunction fell into my 10th, so I expected fireworks at work, but all that happened there was that I was privy to gossip about two separate sets of professional animosity between colleagues. As befits Libra hosting this conjunction, I thought it best that I took no sides.

        Now, after the day’s clashes, for some peaceful meditation time……
