Sun square Saturn is probably the most challenging of the Sun Saturn natal aspects as both Saturn and the square aspect represent tests and challenges that have to be overcome in order to get ahead in life. This aspect may cause difficulties early in life with self-esteem as a result of criticism from people, especially authority figures like the father.
This can lead to these people being hard on themselves but the benefit here is that they strive with determination and perseverance to overcome any setbacks and become masters of self-discipline, achievement and responsibility.
