Sun Square Saturn Natal and Transit

Sun square Saturn TransitSun square Saturn natal represents tests and challenges that have to be overcome to get ahead in life. This aspect may cause difficulties early in life with self-esteem due to criticism from people, especially authority figures like your father. You may be too hard on yourself. As a result, you may be overly self-critical and suffer from poor self-esteem. If you judge yourself too harshly, other people will do the same, reinforcing this negativity.

Early hard lessons made you grow up quickly and get better at the things you struggled with. Like most Saturn aspects, this one gets better with age. You may have been a late bloomer, but you strive with determination and perseverance to overcome any setbacks and become a master of self-discipline, achievement, and responsibility.

Oprah Winfrey (0°03′) certainly started life with many difficult challenges. She was an illegitimate child and practically abandoned, raped, and abused, which has led to lifelong insecurities.

Astrologer Zane Stein (0°16′) faced some personal trials which led him to raise his children as a single parent. With all this extra responsibility, he has still become a highly respected astrologer with many lasting achievements to his name as a pioneer in Chiron and asteroid studies.

Salvador Dali (0°26′) had terrible Saturn responsibilities placed on him by his parents. He was named after his older brother who died as a baby, and his parents forced him to wear his clothes as a reminder that he would never replace his dead brother.

Jason Alexander (0°38′) had many hardships as a youngster, he said he “was always scared as a kid of getting picked on or humiliated or actually beaten up by bigger kids.” He turned this around by using comedy as a defense mechanism, leading to his great recognition.

Sun Square Saturn Transit

Sun square Saturn transit presents tests and challenges which can lead to pessimism and even depression. Your ego may suffer because it is so difficult to get your own way and reach your goals. You may feel restricted or weighed down by certain duties and responsibilities. This is a test of your character. You must strive to meet your responsibilities now, or they will catch up with you in a bigger way down the track.

You should not expect to feel light-hearted or in a happy mood because of coming under pressure through time limits or other important duties at home, school or work. Your needs must be placed in the background to complete the given task.

You will likely come under pressure from whoever needs the job done, such as the boss, your father, or some other authority figure. Along the way, they will not make it easy for you with criticism, rejection or even abuse.

You must show patience, determination, and a strong work ethic. The problem is that you will want to buck the system and avoid your responsibilities with such a heavy feeling of responsibility and restriction. As mentioned above, avoiding responsibility could lead to serious complications later. Even though you may try to ignore the consequences, your subconscious or inner voice will remember and give you a very unsettled and worried feeling. The longer you procrastinate, the worse the problem will become.

You may justifiably feel that you are being hard done by now, and you may experience rejection, isolation, sadness, discouragement and bad luck. The sooner you get to the hard work and get it done, the sooner your self-confidence will return. Though you probably won’t receive much praise or recognition, you will have overcome a major stumbling block and gained satisfaction. You will be better placed the next time you face such an obstacle.

This interpretation for Sun square Saturn transit can also be read for a Solar Eclipse and New Moon square Saturn.

  1. Thanks Jamie. The late Prince Philip had this aspect (less than 1 degree) and experiienced early family tradgedy (abandoned age 10). A fine example of triumph over adversity.

  2. Today is one of my happiest day in this year. Why? Because I have reached the level of inner freedom, after years of hard inner struggles. No longer slave to the Matrix – ZODIAK! And it feels so good. JOY!
