Saturn Synastry

Synastry astrology, is the study and interpretation of the compatibility of any relationship established, be it professional, familial, romantic, marital, parental or friendship. A convenient method adopted to study relationship compatibility is to observe the inter-aspects, if at all formed, between the planets in both the horoscopes of the individuals involved in the relationship. This is done by placing the planets of one horoscope along the wheel of the other. Also best known as relationship astrology, the inter-planetary aspects in the synastry chart thus formed exert a considerable influence on the said relationship, each of them emphasizing the characteristics of the planets involved.

Saturn highlights the limits and lessons to be learned in a relationship along with solidifying it. A Saturn contact in a synastry chart is propitious in a relationship as it dawns as a promise of a longer, more profound commitment. It binds relationships and can overwhelm planets from the other horoscope with which it maintains contact, thus playing as a subtle planet. Saturn, however, accentuates the characteristics of the aspects and the qualities of the planets in the relationship as well.

Saturn-Sun Inter-aspect

A Saturn-Sun contact can focus on or even frustrate a goal or an ambition, be it personal or professional. A Saturn-Sun conjunction can potentially bring stability in a relationship, allowing the individuals involved to meet with and deal with issues more maturely. A Saturn opposition Sun synastry can be restrictive, controlling and limiting in a relationship. Saturn can be inflexible in such a synastry, and can most likely trigger inhibitions among the individuals. A square can create frustration, stress, and arguments. Since the Sun is highly sensitive to criticism, a square is far from a favorable aspect. There is a stronger sense of responsibility and concern for security in a favorable Saturn trine Sun synastry. A sextile on the other hand renders loyalty and commitment to each other and the will to make sacrifices for each other.

Saturn-Moon Inter-aspect

The prominent conjunction, square and opposition inter-aspects in a Saturn-Moon synastry are powerful. An air of responsibility envelops over the sense of dependency in the relationship, a green flag in any relationship. When Saturn contacts with the Moon, the planets complement and exert influence on each other, thus not letting both these planets to vent their overwhelming qualities. The individuals involved in the relationship can restrict and further stabilize emotional expressions. When Saturn and the Moon come in a sextile or a trine, there is easy flow of energy between the individuals. They become more steady, reliable and supportive of each other.

Saturn-Mercury Inter-aspect

When Saturn from one horoscope come in contact with Mercury from the other, the individuals can fine tune their reasoning abilities or repress their ability to communicate. The challenging cross aspects in this synastry are powerful. The individuals may mostly feel emotionally isolated while they try to get over their dependency over each other and on the relationship. A trine or a sextile between the two planets may sprout feelings too, but they are manageable. There is less frustration and more promising of longevity of the relationship. Moreover, the individuals grow more supportive of each other, and become more reliable, understanding, and worthy of trust. A Saturn conjunction Mercury synastry can be a powerful cross aspect which depends entirely on other aspects in the chart.

Saturn-Venus Inter-aspect

When one's Saturn crosses with the other's Venus, it glues the relationship together. These inter-aspects urge the individuals to embrace and experience the pleasure of relationship. A Saturn conjunct Venus synastry is indicative of a strong relationship with its own share of challenges. There is commitment and loyalty, but the risks of one of those involved in the relationship feeling insecure cannot be entirely ignored. Challenging aspects like a square or an opposition will likely bring indiscipline and unnecessary haste in the relationship. They may also render the individuals insensitive. A flowing inter-aspect like a trine or a sextile stabilizes each other's emotions.

Saturn-Mars Inter-aspect

While Mars represents attraction and energy, Saturn is symbolic of solidity of a relationship. Strong Saturn interactions are fortunate for most relationships. A Saturn conjunct Mars synastry can be tricky, when either there is overactive physical attraction and erotic drive or there is psychological impotence. Individuals perceive each other as over-confident, smug or frivolous when Saturn contacts Mars with a challenging aspect. If not handled carefully, it can often end up in arguments. Easy flowing inter-aspects can make relationships predictable and dependable which, in extreme cases, are equated with boredom and monotony.

Saturn-Jupiter Inter-aspect

The Saturn-Jupiter aspects in synastry combines the optimism and generosity of Jupiter with the realism of Saturn. Making a wonderful fusion of qualities and talents, this contact can boost productivity especially in a business relationship. A Saturn-Jupiter synastry brings new insights in terms of restriction and limitations in one's life. In a hard aspect, the Jupiter person may find the Saturn person as judgmental, critical, and dampening enthusiasm. In turn, the Saturn person may find the Jupiter person to be overly optimistic, easily trusting and imbecilic.

Saturn-Saturn Inter-aspect

The planet Saturn in synastry is intriguing. It stabilizes feelings and dials down overwhelming emotions, thus creating room for understanding and empathy. When Saturn of both individuals make a contact with a challenging aspect, it makes the individuals to behave with austerity, criticism or harshness. As one's Saturn enters into a strong aspect with the other's Saturn, it may create an atmosphere with impenetrable wall of restrictions. An easy flowing aspect like a trine or sextile in a Saturn-Saturn synastry promises longevity of the relationship. If there are no Saturn contacts, the union barely lasts.

Saturn-Uranus Inter-aspect

A Saturn-Uranus synastry can bring challenging, sometimes unbearable, intense emotions and passion with elements of individuality and independence to even it out if these planets form a hard aspect. A relationship formed with any aspect with one's Saturn and Uranus of another may not necessarily be socially conventional. A square or an opposition may make the individuals exhibit extreme behavior, resulting in occasional conflicts and disputes over issues of responsibility.

Saturn-Neptune Inter-aspect

A Saturn-Neptune inter-aspect incorporates realism and fantasy. Neptune represents everything illusional, dreamy and surreal, while Saturn reflects on reality. A conjunction or an easy aspect like a sextile or a trine in a Saturn-Neptune synastry integrates dreams of Neptune with Saturn's reality. Saturn represents material order and Neptune is indicative of the spiritual realm and commitment to conscience. When Saturn and Neptune meet in a synastry chart in a hard aspect, the individuals may not perceive each other in depth.

Saturn-Pluto Inter-aspect

A Saturn-Pluto synastry can be indicative of intense struggle for dominance in the relationship. The individuals involved in the relationship go on to exert an authority over each other, and it can go unbearable in extreme situations. Inter-aspects between these two planets can also deviate to loyalty and incredible commitment both in romantic and business relationships.
