Mars Conjunct Saturn Natal and Transit

Mars Conjunct Saturn Transit

Mars conjunct Saturn maximum orb 6°00′.

Mars conjunct Saturn natal gives a strong determination, enduring strength, courage and the capacity for hard work. However, suppressed anger and resentment are also possible. Your Mars desires, sexuality, and creativity can be positively influenced by Saturn’s discipline and strong work ethic. Yet the darker side of Saturn can also affect your desires.

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 expressing anger and even nastiness. However, looking at the charts of people with this aspect, the overwhelming theme is a 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 this aspect’s more heartless and malicious nature to be displayed. In this case, the key would be finding a positive outlet for the energy through creative endeavors, and Mars does represent goal-directed energy. Once a real passion in life is found, even if a bit dark, self-discipline and determination should ensure that the manifestation is positive and productive, not destructive to the self or others.

Christine Keeler (0°00′) was an English model and showgirl, and her affair with a conservative politician led to his downfall in the Profumo Affair of 1961. Mars’s sexuality combined with Saturn’s downfall.

David Lynch (0°00′) is an American filmmaker known for his violent and disturbing style termed “Lynchian.” Mars’s creativity combined with Saturn’s darkness is shown in Eraserhead, The Elephant Man, Dune and Twin Peaks.

Dolly Parton (0°05′) shows this aspect’s steady and determined creativity. She is a prolific musician with countless hits and many arduous tours, a sustained effort over a lifetime.

Rosaleen Norton (0°06′) was the “Witch of Kings Cross” in Sydney, Australia. An occultist and artist, her paintings were often of demons. She was inspired by “the ‘night’ side of magic,” emphasizing darkness and studying the Qliphoth alongside forms of sex magic.

Mars Conjunct Saturn Transit

Mars conjunct Saturn transit can be quite variable in effect, and it can ignite your darkest desires or give you the stamina and patience to complete the most complex tasks. It provides enduring strength, courage and the capacity for hard work. However, suppressed anger and resentment are also possible.

Initially, this transit tends to make you angry, resentful, or revengeful. However, if you channel it early into hard physical work or a creative project, 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 person’s destructive actions toward you, such as nastiness or violence.

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

  1. Hi! This Mars/Saturn conjunction occurs on my Pluto/Uranus natal midpoint, in my 10th house. What do you suggest Jamie?

    • Hi Vicky. I don’t use midpoints but that’s not because they don’t work. For me, there is enough to keep learning about with transits to planets. You could learn more about midpoints at the Noel Tyl Forum.

    • Those things I wrote about the transit will apply to your partner but also any enemies you may have.

  2. Mars conjunct saturn in LIBRA sign 6 house for Taurus ascendant in NAVAMSA CHART.. Please put some light on it.

  3. My daughter has Mars -Saturn conjuction 8th house,Mars being in ascendant and 6th lord for scorpio sign.Dob 06/05/2004,20:50hrs,Bhopal (M.P,India).Pls suggest positive and negative impacts both.Worried about her health and marriage aspects.Pls comment.

  4. 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 😉

  5. 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.

  6. “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!! ????

  7. 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

  11. Hi Jamie,
    Very interesting post. Out of curiousity what happens when your part of fortune is at 8 degress? how the conjunction with the fixed star and mars and saturn plays? And what about having Ceres at 8 degrees cancer ( so in opposition) ? Thanks!

  12. Apparently former director of the FBI Comey has mars conjunct Saturn both in Capricorn. Saturn at 9 degree and Mars at 14 degrees. His memoir is being released this week when Saturn is now at 9 degrees Capricorn i.e. his second Saturn return.

  13. Funny in your reactions you answered a few of my questions, thank you.

    What if in composite it makes a grand square, mars (14° libra) in 9th house is close conjunct my natal saturn R (17° in 11th house) and progressed saturn R (15° in 10th house) in 9th house? Lilith in 11° and Pluto 20° libra.
    His natal accendant is 18° aries opp my natal saturn.
    His natal pluto is 15° libra 6th house conjunct sappho. (His progressed pluto is 17° in 5th house).

    In composite: The grand square, pluto 20° in libra 9th house, sun 19° cancer conjunct asteroid nessus 20° opp venus in capricorn 19° in 12th house. The invisible leg is Asteroïd maniac 17° aries 3rd house.

    Chiron 15° taurus in 4th house, conjunct my natal sun 13° taurus (7th house).

    North node 21° leo in 7th house conjunct my natal mc.

    What is here to be learned? Not to get married?

    His natal nessus is conjunct aphrodite 14° cancer 4th house, my natal north node 15° cancer 9th house.

    We met 22 years ago but i ended it because he lived in another country and had to go back to the army. Last year we met through FB and i kinda felt to end my relationship with my ex and start with him. I can go into detail of the heartache and shit ive been through but still its like i cant stay angery or so, i dunno. Normally i would dismiss people out of my life after what he has done.
    Lost 2 babies of him, 3 one is on the way.
    He lied to me, tried to hide a one night stand with his ex. Etc etc…

    Other relative details, His venus 8° scorpio 7th house conjunct my ascendant 8°.
    His neptune 15° saggitarius 8th house conjunct my anti-vertex.

  14. Hi, this transit occurs during my birthday this year (03/31/2020) so it is a part of my solar return chart for the year ahead. It will be occurring in Aquarius in my 5th whole sign house but 4th placidus house. I don’t have any children but I am concerned about feeling frustrated, especially with regards to my joy and creativity. I was wondering if you had any additional advice or suggestions about dealing with this energy. Thanks!

  15. Hahahaha, this is not the time for war. The US always implements war or war activities when Mars is conjunct Saturn. Last two times Trump bombed Syria. War on Iraq started when Mars was conjunct Saturn. Bwahahahha, not the time for war. WOW!

  16. I’ll tell you all exactly what this means. Mars conjunct Saturn in Aquarius (society, Congress). Mars = anger. Saturn = sustained, persevering. We know that the Democrats are introducing BS left-wing, radical agendas into the coronavirus relief bill. How the hell can people do such a thing when Americans are DYING? We will see a lot of sustained anger ready to erupt uncontrollably the more they delay, and I will absolutely predict violence at the very worst. In all honesty, people should storm the Capitol building to demand relief. Society is NOT going to take this much longer, mark my words!

    • check out Ang Stoic on this aspect.

      My goodness, we have Mars, Saturn,Jupiter and Pluto in a Capricorn

      Massive reversal.

  17. If natal Saturn is in the 6th house and Mars is currently transiting 6th house, then I am assuming, at some point transiting Mars will conjunct natal Saturn in the 6th, perhaps twice since Mars will spend longer in the same house due to a retrograde this year.
    What does that signify for the native? Is it likely to indicate a health crisis and trouble at work? Anything else with the 6th house in the picture? Thanks.

  18. Hi Jamie, any advice on transiting Mars conjunct natal Saturn in the 6th house? Two “malefics” in the house of health and work has me a bit concerned.
    Appreciate any insight!

  19. Hello, Jamie!

    I am so glad I came to your page today! Goodness, your finger is so defty ‘on it’ that it took my breath away. Today, I have Mars exactly conjunct Saturn. I have been on a mission for about 10 days now. And I have powered along, at first driven by anger and a ‘just you wait!’ purpose. I am determined to put an end to the small-time criminal activities of the group that has a strangle-hold on my residential company. Mine is an English circumstance, essentially not unlike the Australian strata-title one. But given that English property law is seriously peculiar, my circumstance involves a private company and a group lease. And I have to be able to contact the entire group, most of whom do not live on the premises, to be able to move against the small-time crims. As I expected, the crims are withholding those addresses. I can get them through the formal channels, but that will take time

    I know that the crims have ways of frustrating my activities. That would normally annoy me, and I would kick up a stink. But not today. Instead, I have a card to play, and I shall play it with ice-cold calm.

    Jamie, please tell me how you think my crim-busting project will work out — in my favour or theirs?

  20. transit mars natal saturn 25 gemini. i fell two feet off my bed with loud crash and got a bruise on the inner right arm ( fighting arm) crease
    and frozen shoulder again ! Painful! It runs up to my neck issues and you know Maria Shriver just had her Reframing Aging running. !
    So it’s Rx now and will go back SLOWLY til it turns on my Uranus in gemini 8 and somehow highlights saturn again i forget how but seven months😁? i m sure it’s over about saturn then forever. Figuratively if not literally. i m game to get things done but fate has intervened and lo the new moon lunar eclipse 2 degree scorpio was on my part of destiny
    and high lighting my near by daughter in laws sun uranus conj. Hence it’s testy. i never expected my natal saturn would be so high lighted again at 78. So my arm took a hit again since 2000 s. Lungs well good thing i quit smoking 30 years ago. My progressed pluto muckraker moved into 4th home house and progressed leo sun crawled over it and now vesta with all those publicly versatile traits like porno prostitution sex problems purity guru workaholics secret societies protection safety credibility nuns nutrition exercise now sits atop pluto exacting in August and my identity and unfamiliar past to most is having a hay day for months and years of progressing . and that’s only me. 🥴

  21. Does transiting Mars Conjunct natal Saturn in the 6th house indicate illness? Thanks!

    • It could, or it might not. I’d pay special attention to your health if your 6th House is ruled by Mars or Capricorn in particular (Scorpio or Aquarius not so much). On the negative side, be careful about working with sharp objects or slips and falls. Breaking bones is a higher risk here, as is skin eruptions or other acute skin condition. On the positive side, this is great for putting into action any new health routines.

    • Another point: beware of overworking because excessive strain will harm your health.

  22. Ellen DeGeneres i believe has mars saturn too and shes seems to be going thro a downfall due to her workers finding fault. But thats not transit. I found her hurtful.’ Her introductions seemed to resonate with an attitude i cared since my teens when i could not get on with my parents and became indifferent. I seemed to tune into her early in her career like some past life and ultimately had to tune out. Mars Direct is about to return to my natal saturn in gemini and i think i am feeling over covid or whatever caused the cough, sneezing and watery eyes for two years but i am being careful using mask staying out of crowds. Whats interesting is my very long term woman friend of astrology has her venus in gemini conjunct my saturn and she was born 1939. I dreamt i was riding with her and heard a sudden silence so looked over and her head was on the wheel. I told her i m never in a car with you again. Happy New Year peace and goodwill. chow

  23. I have Mars conjunction Saturn in Capricorn both in 7th house. I am worried about my marriage life. Mars in Capricorn 10°38′ and Saturn in Capricorn 1°40 I also have Uranus in Capricorn 0°44′ ..Neptune in Capricorn 9°54′.
    Mercury in Aquarius 9th house . Sun in pisces 9th house. Moon in scorpio 5th house, gemini ascendant. Jupiter and Venus both in Taurus 11th house. Pluto in scorpio 5th house, Lilith in Leo 5th house.

  24. Hi Jamie, I have Mars conjunct Saturn 9°38′. This appears on most charts and reports as a conjunction but I used a different website yesterday to make a chart that showed (and to my surprise) no conjunction as I think they only consider a conjunction under 8°. Your explanation above says maximum orb 6°. At the angle I have, can I really consider I have Mars conjunct Saturn? On another note, Saturn is conjunct fixed star Zuben Elgenubi… not a good one for Saturn I think.

  25. Transiting Mars/Saturn conjunct Sun 15:40 Pisces? Any ideas?
    Thank you.
