Mars Conjunct Saturn Natal and Transit

Mars Conjunct Saturn TransitMars conjunct Saturn in the natal chart gives a strong determination and sustained effort in the pursuit of goals. Your Mars desires, sexuality and creativity are positively influenced by Saturn’s discipline and strong work ethic. The darker side of Saturn can also influence your 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, the 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 positive and productive, not destructive to the self or others.

Mars Conjunct Saturn Transit

Transiting Mars conjunct Saturn can be quite variable in effect. It can ignite your darkest desires or give the stamina and patience to complete the hardest of tasks. Natal aspects can play their part but much depends on how you approach this transit and use the initial energy.

This initial energy you feel as the transit approaches has a tendency to make you angry, resentful or revengeful. If you channel it early into hard physical work or a creative project then you transmute this energy into positive and productive achievements.

Taking the low road due to ignorance or laziness can lead to frustration and difficult situations. Going with the flow and not taking the initiative will allow frustration to build to a dangerous level. This destructive energy could then manifest as risky actions due to impatience.

On the other hand, this negative energy could manifest through another persons destructive action toward you, such as nastiness or violence.

This is not the right time to go to war as there is danger when taking risks. Stay at home and sharpen your knives, work hard with patience and forethought. Use this determined energy in a constructive or creative way.

  3. Also it is the final big “push” of rebirth from the void just like the final push of natural childbirth, a mother powered by love or driven by fear, is the difference to what is manifested as the new gifted life, its all in the “sins”…pronounced “signs”, like in geometry, the occult and the alchemy of both 😉

  4. When you say mars conjunct saturn transit, you mean someone who has mars transiting their natal saturn? Could you talk more about this current mars saturn square neptune aspect in the sky this week? Its already a doozy I can feel. Some say its the end of a cycle.

    • That’s right Barb, transiting planet to natal planet. I elaborate more on these aspects as they occur in moon phases.

  5. “tendency to make you angry, resentful or revengeful.” Oh God, I’ll say!!! This normally kind caring Virgo feels this today. I had anxious dreams all night it seems and I wasn’t even in my own dream!! 😂

  6. I have natal saturn at nine degrees sag conjunct juno mars at 13,15 sag conjunct uranus at 22 sag. Natal sun at 9 pisces and chiron at 9 gemini and ceres at 9 virgo. This has been one intense ride! Everything bottled up as pressure is going to transform in the next few weeks as i leave an abusive codpendent living situation and move out into my own place! Im expecting sparks to fly but another beautiful thing of mars/saturn natal is the ability to maintain composure and grace in abusive stressful situations. Thanks for your not so negative insight on the pairing, wish me luck. Heart of a scorpion indeed for this scorpio moon…. I will meditate on that
