Mars Opposite Saturn 29 May 2017

Mars Opposite Saturn TransitMars opposite Saturn in the natal chart requires a lot of hard work to master. For some karmic reason associated with violence or sex, you have to fight hard to get what you want out of life. A certain amount of frustration and disappointment may be experienced before you enjoy the satisfaction of having your strong desires fulfilled.

You will be forced to compete for your fair share. Most often your wants and needs will be blocked by another person. Though sometimes a fated event will block your path. Anger is the first step to deal with because this combination of both malefic planets can turn nasty and spiteful.

Timing is important in dealing with your anger. You tend to hold onto anger way too long which is not good for your health. Yet you also need to give yourself time to understand your feelings and plan your actions. You will find the right mix of patience and initiative with time and experience.

Other people may get angry at you or act in some nasty way to block you, lock you out or take something away from you. You may be subject to bullying, psychological or physical abuse or sexual harassment.

As a result of such opposition you may become depressed. So it is important not to let negativity take hold because of the potential for self-abuse. It is important to always work on your self-esteem through a positive attitude and physical exercise. Muscular strength and self-confidence will deter many people who would potentially hurt you.

Physical activity that teaches self-discipline is the ultimate positive manifestation of this aspect. Martial arts or boxing would do wonders for your self-esteem. Such activities also burn up any stored negative energy like anger and hate.

While young you may have trouble with authority figures such as your dad, teachers and police. If so, they would in fact have been teaching you valuable lessons about self-control and anger management. As a result you will become a master of discipline, patience and steely determination.

Mars Opposite Saturn Transit

Transiting Mars opposite Saturn brings frustration, disappointment and anger. Frustration is due to other people standing in your way. Disappointment comes from unfulfilled desires. The resulting anger is difficult to express therefore requires patience and self-discipline.

Even without having to contend with adversaries, you can be your own worst enemy. This is a low, or slow energy transit which can make you feel weak, inadequate, unattractive and even impotent. This is a marathon not a sprint. Don’t beat yourself up as there may be a tendency to substance abuse.

Personal attacks at this time can be very painful and bring out a mean streak in you. Others may maliciously try to damage your reputation or career. There may be karmic undertones behind their envy, hatred or jealousy.

As mentioned earlier, you may initially find it hard to show your anger. You might need time to understand what just happened or recover from shock. However, it is important for you to get the anger out of your body. Otherwise this hot and destructive energy would remain trapped deep inside, harming your body, mind and spirit.

Once you regain your composure you must tell people how hurt you feel from the bullying. It that is pointless then strenuous physical activity will burn up the anger. Controlled release of energy through sustained effort is best. Examples of such exercise are a long workout, swim or jog.

It is possible to avoid conflict altogether by working out this energy in a productive activity. Self discipline, patience and steely determination can lead to satisfying results. Sharpen your knives don’t use them.

  1. thanks for this article, Jamie! This discussion of Mars and Saturn is just what I needed to see today. I wonder if this seems to particularly apply for me lately because my progressed Mars is nearly conjunct my progressed Saturn, and my natal Mars is in early Aries. I have been trying to be like a Capricorn in my daily life to adjust to this time of discipline and restriction. fortunately for me I truly love that to which I am duty bound. otherwise I would probably be a nasty rebel right now.

  2. I was born with this opp. And I relate to every bit of what´s written.

    Thankyou!

  3. I’m really feeling this one, Jamie… Mars’ll be hitting my Moon/Chiron, and transiting Saturn retrograde is within a few degrees of my Ixion/Uranus, which already opposes my Moon/Chiron perpetually. The inner rebel in me just wants to yell “Enough!!” … but what am I rebelling against?

    Moon/Chiron within a few degrees of my 6th house cusp, and Uranus practically on my 12th house cusp… yes, the job’s been frustrating lately. More restrictions en route it seems (more bureaucratic ways of handling some IT stuff when I’m more inclined to be fast and loose and build-as-I-go… and yes, it’s government…) Plus an upcoming interview of sorts to see if I get to upgrade my position any… and hearing that another state agency just announced furloughs (partially due to the loss of federal funds due to the “sequester”), it’s becoming more apparent a change of pace is needed. Badly.

    To be honest, this isn’t what I want to spend the rest of my life doing, hence me refusing to consider this my 10th-house matter, possibly my Uranian influence kicking in (Still hoping to get my creative projects underway, yet trying to get back in shape plus fatigue from gym/work draining me plus other obligations (family/friends) isn’t leaving me with a lot of time and energy right now). Transiting Neptune (through my 3rd house Pisces) and transiting Nessus (3rd house but still at end of Aquarius) opposing my Sun-on-Regulus/Saturn in 9th house Virgo is *not* helping matters. The fact that this whole interview process happens in the middle of the Eclipse cycle also makes me go “hmm…”

    I’m not sure where Saturn/Mars is hitting in regards to my job’s beginning chart, but I do know Mercury crosses my current job’s ascendant with the sun close behind on the day of that interview… which is on Algol. I’m certain Mars and Venus won’t be far behind either by that point (May 14th).

    So far it’s been a very frustrating week. As drained as I feel right now, probably best to close my laptop lid and just get a good night’s sleep for once.

  4. Today, Jamie, I was Reading an article at El País and an anthropologist wrote about the end of utopies. I related very much with it. It seems that every dream I had, was misplaced somehow and that I made others suffer for not a very good reason (… living on Earth as we all do).

    And I was born in a place where my energies were to be ruled by Saturn (astrodienst interactive maps). So, I really better dig and learn my lesson well.

    The whole thing comes into place and I can see my part a Little better, a Little clearer.

    I thank you very much for your insights. This readings and Marina´s are very helpful.

    All the best!

  5. bang on!!! You are, Jamie ! Aquarius decan 1 with Mars(14degrees 14′) in Saggi opposite Saturn at (14degrees10′) in Gemini, this write up is the story of my life. But now I have started the conscious intervention letting the old man restrict and delay. Just wondering if this aspect of Mars can take my job away altogether? Would you be able to throw some light on what other aspects I should look in my chart to find out if there’s a possibility of job loss?

    • That is such a tight aspect at only 4 minutes orb. I would be researching this aspect and reading as many other interpretations as I could find. Mercury square Uranus will affect how your present yourself and communication at work. That seems to be your only other challenging aspect. Other than that look to transits to your Midheaven.
