  1. I have Sun Conjunct Saturn in Gemini, in the ninth house. I have always struggled with a lack of confidence in myself and tend to retreat from others (also have mercury in cancer). My father was a Capricorn and though a good dad in many ways, always worried abo0ut money and I do remember the household was frought, due to problems with money, worries if we were going to lose the house etc.

  2. Jamie hello, last december Sun & Saturn conjunction happens on my MC in Sagitarius. And in 10th house I have Mercury at 27 degrees. What does that means for me. Thank you

    • That should have been a major development in your career, good or bad depending on your work ethic and how responsible you were in the previous 7 years. It could also means something happened in your relationship with your father, or dealing with authorities like police or judges.

  3. Thank you – how long that major development continues. My father left this world 7 years ago

  4. Jamie –

    You are on the money with this. My Saturn in AQ (one of my co-rulers, by the way) and my Sun in AQ have an orb of 4 degrees. My childhood was EXTREMELY difficult as my mother was alcoholic and, my father was – well, what wasn’t he is the better question.

    As I’m entering my 60’s, it’s not that life has gotten easier – in many ways it’s gotten harder. It’s more that I can understand it and shape it better.

  5. The NM in Virgo 17 degrees on September 9th will conjunct my natal Saturn 16 degrees in my 9th house oppose my natal Sun 11 Pisces in my 2nd house 2 degrees before my third house cusp and it will also oppose Neptune by transit in my third house………HELP!

    I was hoping the NM in my 9th conjunct my Saturn would be a release of some sort, something good and then of course we have my oppositions…….

    It’s been a hard 7 years……..
