Saturn in Scorpio

Saturn is the furthest planet from Earth to still be visible with the naked eye, representing an apparent limit to our solar system. Saturn’s cycles are long, solemnly trudging around the zodiac every three decades, marking the maturation and passing of each generation with the unstoppable march of time. Even Saturn’s rings appear to bind and constrict the planet. Accordingly, Saturn is the planet of limits, boundaries, structures, obstacles, hardships, delays, tragedies, maturity, seriousness, responsibility, duty, punishment, foundations, longevity, sacrifice and hardening, the status quo and the old guard. The condition of Saturn at the time of our birth says something about the kind of challenges and fears we face, where we put great efforts with no ease or guarantee of success, where we attempt to build things, the parts of our lives where we are told ‘no’ and where we say ‘no’.

Saturn in Scorpio is a fixed water sign and bears down on the significations of its ruler, Mars. Their encounters with Saturn are confrontations with the things that go bump in the night. The hardest question for people born during these periods is what the limits of typically bad things should be. How much evil do you tolerate or deem unavoidable or inevitable before enough is enough? When does your safety outweigh others’ privacy? When is suffering too great before you give in? What are the limits of evil? There is the fear of losing your privacy and others having power over you, and a subsequent interest in having advantages and powers over others. However, you’re not paranoid if they’re out to get to you.

This is especially true if you were born with Scorpio, Capricorn or Aquarius rising. Whether you experience the better or worse significations of this position depends on whether you were born during the day or at night, and the kind of aspects it makes with the other planets.

  1. Saturn is only peregrine in Scorpio. Still, when only specific keywords such as coldness, darkness and death are mentioned, it’s hard not to see some “affinity” between the sign and planet. That’s just me though.

    Mars in Real Life:

    Mars appears red because of iron oxide on the planet. Iron oxide forms rust; Mars is covered in rust, much more rust than on Earth.
    Wikipedia: “ In music, literature, and art, rust is associated with images of faded glory, neglect, decay, and ruin.”

    Mars has two moons: Phobos (fear) and Deimos (dread).
    Phobos, where we get “Phobia” from, personified fear during battle. Deimos represented dread before battle.

    What do you think?
