Mars Opposite Saturn Natal and Transit

Mars Opposite Saturn Transit

Mars opposite Saturn maximum orb 6°00′.

Mars opposite Saturn natal requires a lot of hard work to master. For some karmic reason associated with violence or sex, you must 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 fulfilling your firm desires.

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 because this combination of both malefic planets can turn nasty and spiteful.

Timing is essential in dealing with your anger. You tend to hold onto anger for too long, which is unsuitable for your health. Yet it would be best 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 essential to constantly 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, and 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 have taught you valuable self-control and anger management lessons. As a result, you will become a master of discipline, patience, and steely determination.

Mars Opposite Saturn Transit

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

Even without contending with adversaries, you can be your worst enemy. This low or slow energy transit can make you feel weak, inadequate, unattractive or 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 excruciating and bring out a mean streak in you. Others may maliciously try to damage your reputation or career, and there may be karmic undertones behind envy, hatred or jealousy.

As mentioned earlier, you may initially find it hard to show anger and need time to understand what just happened or recover from the shock. However, it would be best if you got 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. If that is pointless, 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, swimming or jogging.

Avoiding conflict altogether by working out this energy in productive activity is possible. 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.



  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.

  6. Jamie, do I take it correctly that transiting Saturn opposition Mars is the same as transiting Mars opposition Saturn? Saturn directly opposed my Mars in Gemini (25’35) in February 2017. Saturn retrograde stays within a 2′ orb of the opposition until July, then opposes again exactly, then crosses my Descendant at a little over 2′ later. What will that do? I have been getting nasty thumps from people since the February transiting Saturn opposition Mars. And transiting Pluto has been conjunct my Capricorn Moon for a long time, and will be for the rest of the year. A good number of nasty thumps from here, too. I suspect karma, for I cannot see that I provoked these thumps. Frankly, I’m really scared. I don’t want any more thumps. I don’t want to have to fight back any more. I want to love and be loved. Sorry I’m whining. But it is all so lonely and disheartening. I have no family left, so I am hopelessly loveless. Is it possible to beg for mercy? (A while back all this felt almost like black humour. Not any more though. I’m too weakened.)

  7. Starting tomorrow- transit Mars will square my sun/moon and oppose Saturn. I don’t even want to leave my home *sigh*. I felt it today with mars opposing my Sun and Moon. Despite transit moon making a sextile/trine aspect to my sun/moon/Uranus/Neptune (making for a fairly smooth and peaceful day), I still had transit mars square my sun/moon. Every interaction today felt embarrassing and awkward. I had this inexplicable sense that I was stepping on everyone’s toes.

  8. you can add the artist yungblud to your famouslist, because he is living proof of this :)he isreally great andthe best that has happened to me this year in 2019.

  9. Going through this transit now, and your advice is spot on. Want to tell someone to f off, but not doing so as it will hurt my bottom line. So screaming at the air and writing emails to send later while I do what I have to to protect my future. Thank you for validating my thoughts on this. Been doing astrology for 30 years but sometimes need other input as I swim through the pea soup that is life. Blessings dear one.

  10. Saturn is at the end of cap and leo mars probably 12th house near Leo asc. I have been ABUSED a lot. My mother was a psychopath. POISON, drugging, false witness, belittling and then my mother in law, then a pedo rapist who managed to get into my house. Buy a key safe for Inside the house, bolt the doors and lock the doors even when you get the washing in. Lock the side gate. I don’t know if trying to evoke psychopaths’ sympathy is really the answer, i felt their hate so keenly, I did not want to give them the satisfaction.

  11. sigh….whats a capricorn to do? does this mean people are gonna mess with me this week?

  13. why’d you assume ”the authority” is ”dad”? fuck the gender role🤮

    • Traditionally, Masculine planets are Sun, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn; Mercury and Uranus are neuter; Moon, Venus, Neptune, and Pluto are feminine.
      This post was wriitten more than 10 years ago if you look at the date of the comments.
      Jamie, I love your writeups and the way you always offer helpful advice in how to navigate difficult aspects.
      I’ve also read that saturn mars gives a very short temper.
