Saturn sextile Pluto natal gives a steely determination and endurance which you put to practical use to create something of value, something lasting. You have a fantastic ability to focus on a particular project and see it to completion.

You keep probing and keep working so hard like a machine. Systems and order are a high priority in your life, so you often have a systematic approach to life, with strict regimes and structures to maintain order and a sense of security.

However, strict self-discipline does not restrict your creative process. You can find revolutionary new ways of doing things. But your continual self-development is generally smooth and not disruptive. You change or evolve in a sustained and orderly manner.

You are a survivor and can function efficiently on very little. Respect and high recognition can come from your achievements. You may also have managerial potential and would climb the ladder to a leadership role in a large corporation or government department.

  1. Oh Marina!

    What a beautiful geometry!

    My son has pluto quadrate saturn in his natal chart. And now, Pluto is transiting his 12th House. I do not expect any fun.

    Patience has been THE Word now a days and we have to keep rowing…


    When ever I have the opp. I will ask you for their readings, to grant my children with some auto-knowledge… Mhh!

    • You have Jamie to thank for this one Rocio, but I agree. That grand sextile is something else. The only thing with this fancy aspect pattern I think maybe that its too much of a good thing. I think it was Robert Hand who said in his Astrological symbols book that he knew of only one man who had a true grand sextile and he really didn’t amount to much. I guess it all depends on the evolution of the individual doesn’t it? Maybe a really talented person could do great things with such an aspect. Oh also the fixed stars are important too ofcourse.

  2. All I can say is OMG! I dreamed of the exact geometry of the third sextile a few nights ago. WOW!

  3. My son has this at 3 degrees so quite wide, but his Pluto is also square moon and trine sun so he’s quite intense. You’re right about the obsessional verging on ocd traits and he does work all day and night to finish a project. He also has a tendency to work through lunch hour and has to be told to take a break. He battled his way through virtually non existent train services on Boxing Day to work a completely unnecessary shift only to have his xmas presents stolen off him on the night bus home,the upcoming full moon activating the Jupiter/Lilith apex of this yod was right on his AC.
    My brother also has this aspect and is currently going through 2nd Saturn return. He works hard but blows it and ends up with nothing, which, come to think of it, is true of my son too.

  4. The grand sextile is truly beautiful…and it happens on a Saturday too. Definitely not a night to stay home!

  5. Oh Jamie, I´m sorry!

    I just did not give myself enough time to read the autor!

    And… I love this site also because nothing *pretty* is so and nothing *nasty* is so. Much more of the mix, which I feel is so right!


  6. my daughter’s father has this sextile, with exact yod to venus. (jan. 1977) he’s sun-moon-mars-merc in capricorn and a completely deranged individual.

  7. That last chart is a wonder! I have a Saturn-Pluto trine, myself. Saturn is exactly conjunct my POF; he’s always been lucky for me.

  8. Great article Jamie! The Star of David is an ancient and sacred symbol. One interpretation of the two interlocking benevolent trines is that it represents the merging of female and male energy. I certainly hope that we’ll see more harmonious relations between the genders that involves mutual respect and understanding of differences. I think that more respect and understanding is needed for women in eastern cultures and the same is needed for men in western cultures.

    My natal venus was on the reaction point of the December Jupiter yod and My ascendant conjunct Pluto (9 Cap). I have a large and small star on my mount of jupiter on my right hand and according to vedic astrology I start a Jupiter cycle in July so I hope that I’ll somehow be able to make some positive contributions to structural reforms this year.

  9. I’m going to be moving during the time of the march stellium. All the Pisces planets activate my 9th house.

    I hope mercury retrograde doesn’t mess with things.

  10. Maybe Julia Gillard will win the federal election? That’s set for September I think.

  11. Pluto in Scorpio was sextile Saturn/Neptune in Cap throughout most of 1989 – some serious restructuring that year
    Exact on May 2nd at about 14 degrees.(first crack in the Iron Curtain on Austria/Hungary border) Tienanmen Square two weeks later. Khomeini declared fatwa on Salman Rushdie for ‘Satanic Verses’, which was one of the first inklings we had in this country of Islamic fundamentalism; US invasion of Panama; Solar weather knocked out grid in Quebec; beginning of Serb/Croat conflict; Russia withdrew from Afghanistan…some seismic changes that we are still processing.
    Now these planets are sextile again in almost the same positions but reversed – does that happen often?
    On a personal level I’m worried for my son because he was born in March 89 and now he is feeling this transit on his natal sextile, particularly Pluto tr the Saturn/Neptune conjunction which was exact at 12 deg when he was born. He is very reliant on systems and structures,being Aspergers, but at 24 and having to earn a living and manage rent etc he is very stressed and also trying to do without vital medication, which is putting strain on his relationships. I fear if he doesn’t come out of this transit transformed it will be in a box.
    Anyone else born that year feeling this?

  12. Rachel!

    (I´m not using google chrome… :/)

    I would study about crystall children and would make some of this material available for him. Maybe you have already…! 🙂

    I would add -to his knowledge- that some Índigos are very tough and that he is to be the tolerant part of the salad, or so (I hope I make myself understandable).



    • Thanks Rocio, I haven’t looked at crystal children but I have looked at indigos and some of it fits. He’s very sceptical now,he needs to be to stay grounded – I wouldn’t even talk to him about astrology, but he sees some crazy stuff, some of it psychosis and some of it clairvoyance – he used to freak us all out by ‘just knowing stuff’.

      • Rachel,

        I´ve had hard times all my life to stay grounded. And using plain rocks, as well as sitting right on the roots of trees, has helped me very, very much ;)! Also, carrying some quarz, of several colors. Some fossils help too! He might want to do a collection, for example, and that would help him a lot!… maybe?


        • Oh he has a collection – his godmother used to give him a crystal every year for his birthday, she must have known something! And my great aunt left me all sorts of rocks and a mammoth’s tooth…

  13. I’ve 2 24 y/o nephews, joining national guard and navy, structured life, w/ pluto/saturn & scorpio/sat it’s the idea of coming up w/ individual resourses, grouping up is safer. Sat/cap can produce ‘pillars of society’, socially cool & judging.

    • That’s interesting, I couldn’t understand why he wanted to join the army and in the end he’s not well enough, but he loves to be part of a unit of people he trusts. Thinking about his friendship group some of them are very dedicated and serious kids, joined orchestras etc. Also a lot of them lost or nearly lost a parent in their teens, mostly fathers.

  14. Greetings from the island of Crete!!(Hania) very nice article…….how can a transit saturn from 1 st house opposing a natal saturn in 7th,turn this into a positive aspect?


  15. No wonder the new Iranian Minister for Foreign Affairs is a woman, who is now trying to bring diplomatic changes between US and her country.

  16. I have this aspect and I would say that its quite challenging but the benefit is finding enormous strength and resilience that you never knew you had. Its quite positive in the end to become a phoenix rising from the ashes. Utter devastation resulting in some type of victory. I have an Aries ascendant and have never been that big on relying on ‘group’ efforts which probably goes back to early childhood experiences.

    • Char. I just read your comment and wanted to add that I am considered the right hand cross of the sleeping phoenix in human design, another form of astrology. What do you think it would look like for someone to have this adversity but then come back as a phoenix. Thank you.

  17. My daughter has this Star of David in her natal chart, although she was born on 18 September. On 18 September the Venus/Saturn/NN stellium was all in 8 Scorpio (NN 8.26′, Venus 8.28′ and Saturn 8.44′) and Pluto was still retrograde at 8.59′ Cap. Her birth data is as follows: 18 Sept. 2013, Beijing, China (116e24, 39n55), 10:43pm local time.

    If you add the POF, major asteroids like Pallas, Vesta and Juno and others like Alice, Angel, Cruithne, DNA, Hermes you will see a lot of synchronicity with certain degrees and other interesting aspects and/or placements.

    Interestingly, my wife and I (she’s Chinese and I’m Caucasian-American) are both 1982 kids with the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Libra. My Aries Venus opposes my Saturn-Pluto conjunction. We had our second child, a baby boy, last November the morning after that big Taurus Supermoon. That moon managed to juuuust sneak into Gemini by his birth time, which is funny because the Sun snuck into Gemini while my mother was in labor. As for my son he also has his 12th House Saturn conj. ASC, his Venus conj. ASC in his intercepted 1st House Capricorn (his mother has 12H Aquarius/6H Leo intercepted) and Pluto is also in Cap in that 1st House, conjunct Vega by .01′.

    I’m far from an astrology expert but after comparing our charts there seems to be a great deal of “cosmic inheritance” that is passed down from parents to children, at least in our case. Just as with the Venus/Saturn/Pluto aspects, there are many other aspects my children have which are variations or repeating aspects of the natal aspects of my wife and I. I have found a few studies on the web that look into this phenomenon more, but they only focus on one particular family and fail to include more than two generations of relatives. I believe a more exhaustive study collecting data from more families and grandparents-children-grandchildren would yield an enlightening amount of insight and understanding into the spiritual mechanics of astrology and how cosmic energies need to be accounted for when looking at the nature vs. nurture debate. After all, are we not the stuff which stars are made of?

    Thanks for all your hard work and dedication in making and updating this site. God Bless.

  18. I also have this in my natal at a 0°01 just like Barabara Hand Clow. I have never heard of her before but you can bet that I’ll be researching her now. 🙂 thanks

  19. Chelyabinsk Meteor Strike, February 13, 2013

    progressed natal on that day, with transits. Asteroid Karl Jaspers ‘existential threat’ Zero point 00°Aries11′, transiting Moon feelings and emotions, Zero point 00Aries49′

    This event was over 10 years ago. I was looking at Catallan ‘s La Nora Ora, the meteor striking the Pope. Even though the art was made in 1999, it only took one month after Chelyabinsk before we had a new Pope. La Nora Ora, the Ninth Hour, indeed, 9:20 am is the time given.
