Mars Square Saturn in the Natal Chart

The natal square between the malefics, Mars and Saturn, indicates a weighty discord between the impetus of desire and the restraint of responsibility. The Mars-Saturn square surges a defensive nature, often propelling hindrances in personal relationships. The square between Mars and Saturn propels a defensiveness within the context of personal relationships. Saturn, the excluding influence, acclimates fear of rejection coupled with restraint. The melancholic temperament of the Time Keeper punctuates this configuration, requesting a counteraction to pessimism, brooding pensiveness, and disconsolation. The oscillating pull between assertion and lethargy, aggression and apathy, can delay personal progress, until conscious application of consistent will is emplooyed. Laboriousness and persistent effort are adequate antidotes to the Mars-Saturn square. We need only understand the nature of both malefics to gain insight as to their operative function (within the context of natal square). When Mars’ swift severance is halted by Saturn, the primal drive is consistently oppressed by apprehension.

Imagine the sluggish scorch of an expanding fire, where its force is unsustainably dense. While its embers require preservation, Saturn’s slow, consistent pressure is exhausting. Anger and frustration are at the core of this aspect, stemming from internalized hurt and tension. Irritability and tension surges, requiring temperance and controlled separation. Inhibition and rejection (Saturn) are present with this aspect, coupled with a limiting sense of self-value.

Saturn (along with the Sun) is often attributed to the father, and with this aspect (as well as the natal opposition and conjunction), the native’s early relationship with the paternal figure mirrors Saturn’s gelid austerity. As with all aspects, none should be interpreted in isolation. It is important to consider the entirety of the birth chart, including the condition of the planets described.

The Natal Square

The natal square, often illustrated as a visual enmity, is traditionally (strictly in isolation here, for informative purposes) considered less challenging than the opposition. The natal square, also known as the tetragon, occurs when planets are four signs apart, or separated by 90°. As with all degree-based configurations or aspects, the relationship between two planets is intensified according to proximity via degree. Traditionally, the square is referred to as adversarial, indicating rivalry or discord. Malefics (Saturn and Mars) are considered particularly challenging when configured via square, especially considering that, traditionally, Mars rules the tetragon, or square (the Saturn configuration is the diameter, or opposition).

Applying and Separating Aspects

In traditional astrology, planets applying within three degrees participate in engagement, or coming together. As opposed to separating aspects, applying aspects are considered more potent because they indicate future circumstances. Contrastingly, separating aspects are interpretive of past events. Within the context of the natal chart, applying aspects also indicate, from the moment of inception, the nativity’s future potential.

Meaning and Correspondences of Mars in Astrology

Mars represents the spirit of energy, courage, and enterprise. His energy, when implemented strategically, is the polarity of shiftlessness and cowardice. At its best, Mars mirrors the unconquerable energy and potent will of a warrior. This is the necessary masculine energy that initiates and asserts without subjection to reason. Traditionally, as a nocturnal malefic, Mars negates via severance or separation.

Mars (also known as Mavors, Ares, Pyrois, or Gradivus), appears as a fiery star of sparkling color. He is a masculine, nocturnal planet of the night sect. His temperament is hot and dry, choleric and fiery. His approximate course completion is one year and 321 days. His greatest northern latitude is 4°31′ while his southern latitude is 6°47′. [1] Mars has his domicile in Aries and Scorpio, is exalted at 28° Capricorn, sees its depression/ fall at 28° Cancer, and is in detriment/ fall in Libra and Taurus. Mars stations before his 80-day retrograde, and governs the water triplicity (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces, respectively). In traditional astrology, Mars is known as the lesser malefic, and finds his Joy in the sixth place. He governs Tuesday, in the first and eighth hour from the Sun. He solely befriends Venus, remaining antagonistic to all other planets.

Meaning and Correspondences of Saturn in Astrology

Saturn (also known as Kronos, Phainon, or Falcifer), the greater malefic, is aligned with boundaries, discipline, and structure. His four main groups of rings, metaphors of limitation, range in temperature from -163 to -203° Celsius. He governs time, is associated with maturity (70+), and is attributed to subjectively negative experiences such as suffering, pain, isolation, and loneliness (reflective of his traditional joy in the 12th place). Just as benefics (Jupiter and Venus) have the power to say ‘yes’, malefics are inclined to negate, or say ‘no’. Saturn denies via rejection or exclusion.

Saturn’s nature is cold and dry, principally melancholic, and of the diurnal sect. Saturn is the traditional, domicile lord of Capricorn (nocturnal) and Aquarius (diurnal), exalted in Libra (exaltation degree: 21° Libra), in adversity/ ‘detriment’ in Cancer and Leo, and in its depression/ ‘fall’ in Aries. His energy may be more or less constructive in one’s chart relevant to sect. His taste is astringent and his color is dark brown (along with grey and black). He governs substances such as lead (in part, due to its toxicity), stone, and wood.

Sun Square Mars

The Square aspect between the Sun and Mars in a Natal Chart

The purpose of this article is to provide an understanding of the the square aspect between the Sun and Mars. An explanation of the square configuration, along with a summary of each planet’s meaning and correspondence will be provided, in order to provide context prior to the interpretation of the Sun-Mars square.

The Square Configuration or Aspect in the Natal Chart

The square is a 90° angle with a 6° orb range. Planets in a square aspect share modalities (cardinal, mutable, fixed).

The square aspect is considered dynamically challenging, since its difficulties propel significant work on the issues indicated by the planets involved. Planets in the square aspect are at cross-purposes: their tension can produce frustration, although diligent labor and perseverance can foster triumph. The level of resolution over the square aspect is the result of successful integration of two disparate principles (as indicated by the planets involved). Because this aspect is considered to be traditionally challenging, we look to the signs (meaning, dignity, and condition) and places/ houses involved in order to understand where adjustments, integration, and patient application must be employed. Again, with the square aspect, growth is always the result of incessant laboriousness, but this should not suggest that its limitations are not without resolve. For the purposes of this article, it is also helpful to understand a chart’s sect, in order to understand a chart’s diurnal or nocturnal components, and further understand the significance of the planets involved.

* Note: Single aspects should neither be isolated nor fixated upon in interpretation, as the overall chart can demonstrate mitigating or contradictory factors. Instead, a thorough chart analysis will bring the necessary clarity and cohesion of celestial influences.

Sun square mars

Meaning of the Sun in Astrology

The Sun represents the visible intelligence and perception of the soul. The solar orb is, in essence, the all-bountiful fire that supports the existence of life. Therefore, the Sun indicates the central, physical vitality and conservation of each human organism. The Sun oversees the ego and moral principles, as indicated by self-esteem and conscientiousness.

The Sun Correspondences in Astrology

The Sun, (Helios in Greek, called amongst poets and historians as Sol, Titan, Ilios, Phoebus, Apollo, Pean, Osiris, Diespiter) is hot and dry, of choleric temperament (considered more temperate than Mars), masculine, and the luminary of the diurnal sect. Placed in the center of all planets, he passes through all twelve zodiacal signs once per year. His mean notion is 59 minutes and 8 seconds, yet his diurnal motion is sometimes 57 minutes and 16 seconds (sometimes more, but never exceeding 61 minutes and 6 seconds). The Sun always moves in the ecliptic and is void of latitude. [1] In Hellenistic astrology, the Sun finds his joy in the ninth place.

The Sun has his domicile in Leo, is exalted at 19° Aries, in adversity/ detriment in Aquarius, and receives his depression/ fall at 19° Libra. By day, the Sun governs the fiery triplicity (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius, respectively). The Sun is always direct, and although his pace in movement can oscillate, he is never retrograde. His day is Sunday, overseeing the first and eighth hours. He befriends all planetary bodies, aside from his energetic resistance, Saturn.

In traditional astrology, Mars is known as the lesser malefic, and finds his joy in the sixth place. He governs Tuesday, in the first and eighth hour from the Sun. He solely befriends Venus, remaining antagonistic to all other planets.

Interpreting Sun Square Mars in the Natal Chart

The Sun-Mars square initiates fiercely courageous, self-confident natives, even when offset by other factors in the natal chart. There is a distinct amount of assertiveness and impulsive behavior. When this aspect is stimulated by transits, the Sun-Mars stimulates action. There is ample energy and vitality associated with this (and all) Sun-Mars aspects, which must be channeled constructively in order to prevent self-sabotage and harm. When this energetic current is well directed, and the native develops necessary patience and forethought, there is much potential for success in various endeavors. Likewise, this aspect, when tempered, grants the native an abundance of energy and enthusiasm that can be applied to any course of action.

The square formed between the Sun and Mars generates an eruption of anger and brashness that can lead to unnecessary and potentially detrimental conflicts. Because the Sun and Mars are fiery planets without the temperance of calculation, there can be a notable lack of patience and forethought prior to action. As a result, the analytical mind needs to intervene before the primal instinct takes control of the native. Slowing down can become challenging, as can immediate reactions to circumstances.

This aspect’s amelioration is best accomplished via cultivating persistent self-discipline, patience, and the dispersal of excessive energy into exercise regimes or physically creative endeavors. The Sun-Mars square cultivates an impenetrable will, and can, with time, be used to constructively and consistently build upon any endeavor. With time, the native learns how to deter self-sabotage, one of the most challenging themes of this aspect (for the implementation of temperance and discipline must be progressively built). Once this challenge is surpassed, the Sun-Mars native will find an energetic reservoir that is impervious to obstacles or hindrances.

Moon Conjunct Saturn

Moon Conjunct Saturn in the Natal Chart

The Natal Conjunction: Coiled Roots

Moon Conjunct Saturn

The natal conjunction consists of an 8° orb between two planets, increasing or decreasing in strength relative to the orb’s exactitude (0°), or distance (8°), respectively. When planets conjoin, a merging or energetic blend occurs between both planetary influences, causing their characteristics to intertwine like coiled roots at the base of a tree. As a result, their energies form an inseparable relationship, which is partially why the natal conjunction is deemed significantly potent. Although conjunctions are generally considered challenging aspects, as is the case with the Moon-Saturn conjunction, not all conjunctions are created equal, and this is highly dependent on the planets involved in configuration. However, for the purposes of this article, the conjunction is challenging in its inability to differentiate between two energies, as a result of their significantly close proximity.

Note: Aspects should not be isolated in interpretation, as the overall chart can demonstrate mitigating or contradictory factors. Instead, a thorough chart analysis will bring the necessary clarity and cohesion of celestial influences.

Correspondences of the Moon in Traditional Astrology

The Moon’s nature is cold and wet. She is feminine, principally phlegmatic and of nocturnal sect. Luna is the traditional, domicile lord/ ruler of Cancer, exalted in Taurus (degree of exaltation: 3° Taurus), in adversity/ ‘detriment’ in Capricorn, and in its depression/ ‘fall’ in Scorpio. In traditional astrology, the Moon finds her Joy in the 3rd place. Along with the Sun, she is considered a luminary, and will have more or less significance in one’s chart relative to sect. Her taste is salty and governs silver and glass substances.

The Moon’s General Meaning and Natal Significance

Luna, or the Moon, is a receptive, mirroring luminary that usually absorbs the qualities or characteristics of other planets. In a conjunction to Saturn, for example, such is the case. The Moon is associated with the body, the mother or maternal guardian in the native’s early life, sensitivity, and intuition. She is oscillating and unstable, referred to as ‘wandering’ in traditional astrology.

The Natal Saturn

Moon Conjunct Saturn

Correspondences of Saturn in Traditional Astrology

Saturn’s nature is cold and dry. He is principally melancholic, and of diurnal sect. Saturn is the traditional, domicile lord/ ruler of Capricorn and Aquarius, exalted in Libra (degree of exaltation: 21° Libra), in adversity/ ‘detriment’ in Cancer and Leo, and in its depression/ ‘fall’ in Aries. He is considered the Greater Malefic in traditional astrology, but his energy may be more or less constructive in one’s chart relative to sect. In traditional astrology, Saturn has his Joy in the 12th place. His taste is astringent and his color is dark brown (along with grey and black). He governs substances such as lead (in part, due to its toxicity), stone, and wood.

Saturn’s General Meaning and Natal Significance

Saturn is the planet aligned with boundaries, discipline, and structure. He governs time, is associated with old age (70+), and is attributed to subjectively ‘negative’ experiences such as suffering (he has his Joy in the 12 place in traditional astrology), pain, isolation, and loneliness. Just as benefics (Jupiter and Venus) have the power to say ‘yes’, malefics are inclined to negate, or say ‘no’. Saturn’s style of denying is via restriction. His four main groups of rings, metaphors of limitation, range in temperature from -163 to -203° Celsius.

No chart is void of Saturn, regardless of dignified planets and exemplary aspects, as there can be no life without struggle.

Moon Conjunct Saturn in the Natal Chart

The conjunction between the Moon and Saturn, as a strictly isolated configuration, can indicate a native who is soberingly mature, often as the result of being denied the maternal nourishment that was necessary during childhood. The qualities of the natal Moon should be examined to understand what those specific requirements were (and likely, still are), because, more likely than not, the native continues seeking them in a seemingly directionless path. The so-called ‘inner child’ that is so easily and readily accessible to surrounding onlookers is difficult to access, as he/she was likely speedily substituted for a stern adult in the growth process. For the Moon-Saturn native, quick maturation has been an unwanted requisite in order to foster self-survival. Due to the temperament qualities attributed to the Moon and Saturn, melancholia, sadness, and even depression can be significant with this placement. Subconscious fears are deeply ingrained in the psyche, manifesting as irritability or paranoia. Additionally, there is often a notable hindrance in the ability to openly express one’s emotive nature, usually as a result of fear-based rejection. While these natives might appear cold and distant at surface level, they are, in fact, extremely sensitive and pensive.

Depending on the lack of maternal and overall parental nurture in early childhood, these natives develop insecurities, reservations, guilt, and self-esteem issues, which are often compensated for by self-exclusion from much participation with the outer world. The blackened perspective or general feeling of discontent often associated with this conjunction is the result of viewing the world through a Saturnian lens. Mental health is delicate with the Moon-Saturn conjunction, and is best remedied by developing a consistent exercise and suitably dietary regimen. Beyond this, developing a strong sense of self-value is paramount to resolving the challenges of this configuration, as is the seemingly simple act of teaching oneself how to find joy.

July 27 2018 Total Lunar Eclipse: Toil and Triumph


How do we best endure crisis? When change’s certainty looms unannounced, we are often forced to confront the unknown with voiceless humility and grace. Beyond the relinquishment of preconceived existence, truth’s immeasurable beauty emerges, heralding uncharted experience.

At 4° 44’ Aquarius, the lengthiest total lunar eclipse of this century (occurring near apogee at 1 hour, 42 minutes, and 57 seconds) is barricaded between the South Node and Mars retrograde (at 5° 53′ and 3° 58′ Aquarius, respectively). Its potent focus, largely fueled by the ferocity of Mars, portends to the ultimate pulverization of the past’s antiquated patterns. Herein is the precipice of willful exodus: the first face of Aquarius heralds the abandonment of oppression in favor of spiritual transcendence. Crystallized belief structures supressing progress potentially surge and shatter, if we laboriously wield the fixed (Aquarius, Leo, Scorpio, Taurus) and retrograde (Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto, Chiron) energy emphasized in this eclipse’s chart.

Paralleling Saturnian perseverance, Aquarius’ first decanate evokes imagery of independent labor and thought. While The Timekeeper’s presence surveys Aquarius (via traditional rulership and triplicity), in decan I, his stoicism is pronounced as “a prudent man and the form of a woman spinning”. Here, the impression of steady, incessant work services a broader intent. According to Agrippa, significance denotes “thinking and working for gain in poverty, and for usefulness.” While scarcity and toil “in poverty and baseness” are emblematic of Saturn, allusion to Venus is disclosed by Ezra as “a man skilled in copper”. Derived from the word Kyprus, copper signals the island of Cyprus, regarded as Aphrodite’s birthplace. Again, in Picatrix (both Arabic and Latin correspondences), Venus emerges as “a man (holding) a peacock”. Although the first face of Aquarius is enshrouded in laborious imagery, its Venusian correspondence unveils the pleasure of personal independence.

Out-of-bounds Mars (7/7-9/24/18) conjoins Luna on the South Node, accentuating a prominent shift within its retrograde phase (6/26-8/27/18) that re-evaluates our collective contribution while reclaiming individuality and freedom. Particular receptivity stems from dismantling that which stagnates motivation, inspiration, and impedes individual growth. Out-of-bounds Mars correlates with cataclysmic manifestations of the yang’s penumbra. While socially erupting via war, violence, and dominion, collective recognition and con-structive action toward imperative change is Mars’ higher potential, and its masculine energy is best wielded past the archaic structures of societal paradigms.

The total lunar eclipse (along with Mars) conjoins fixed stars Giedi, Dabih, Oculus, and Bos, all within the Capricornus Constellation (in the head of the Sea-Goat). At 4° 1′ Aquarius, Giedi’s nature, simultaneously Venusian and Martian (according to Ptolemy), is “associated with piety and self-sacrifice.” [Larousse’s Encyclopedia of Astrology] At 4° 18′ Aquarius, fixed star Dabih denotes an “influential position but scarcely realizes ambitions, (along with) trouble through (the) opposite sex, deserved criticism and censure. [Robson, p.157.] At a mere 28′ distance, Oculus and Bos (at 4° 58′ and 5° 25′ Aquarius, respectively) being Venusian and Saturnian in nature, influence conservatism and a lack of progressiveness in crisis. [Morse, p.101] Overall, the Capricornus constellation bestows potent influence over human affairs, directing shifts in areas regarding climate and political customs.

In the Epinomis and Chaldean Oracles, Aquarius’ first face corresponds to Dikē, Greek goddess of enforced moral justice. Under Saturnian rulership and in alliance with this decan’s emblem of willful exodus, Dikē’s sword severs partnerships incongruent with the moral compass of Lady Justice. As her indiscriminate cleave cuts past all hindrances of freedom and liberation, Aquarius’ first facade toils to pulverize the barricades of injustice.

Uranus, squares the Sun, Luna, Mars, and the nodal axis, magnifying the impetus and prophetical potency of this lunation. Unprecedented events saturated by Uranian unpredictability via erratic swerves and transformative severing from the past are probable themes. This seeming whirlwind of chaotic disarray is somewhat anchored as Uranus trines Saturn, however, supporting rigorous integration of this lunation’s forthcoming shifts. As Uranus’ current harmonizes with The GateKeeper, the strive for change is patiently labored through strategic efforts. While this eclipse pierces the emotive core, Luna’s semi-sextile to Saturn brings necessary equilibrium between obligations and emotional needs. Although the amplification of Mars grapples repressed and subconscious anger, Luna and Saturn work to prevent otherwise lamentable actions. Lastly, the Venus-Pluto trine unravels the depths of relationship dynamics, offering profound assertion through psychological insights. In essence, this intensification is the psyche’s own power, now seeking expression through the physical vessel.

Eclipse Visibility

At the exactitude of the 21st century’s greatest eclipse, Luna lies near the zenith from a point in the Indian Ocean that is east of Madagascar. This lunation is visibly posited for Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia. While a portion of South America will view fragments of its final stages (as Luna rises), this eclipse’s visibility will not extend to North America.

Possible Environmental Effects

The Aquarian lunar eclipse, as a fixed air mode, influences the air, trees, birds, human communications (particularly as this lunation is ushered by Mercury retrograde), transit, transportation, electricity, hurricanes, tornadoes, winds, polluted air, airborne disease, radiation, wind energy, computer technology, postal systems, communication networks, and space discoveries. Magnifying the fixed mode, this eclipse suggests long-term, finalizing results.

On the day of Venus, the July 27th Total Lunar Eclipse is exact at 4:41 PM ET.

Castor and the Phoenix: Partial Solar Eclipse at 20° 41′ Cancer

What is luxury? As defined by the third decanate of The Mother archetype, it is ‘having more than we need’ [Coppock]. At 20° 41′, The Crab’s third face grapples the dynamics of earthly excess and scarcity in earnest inquiry, as this decanate juxtaposes the advantage and precariousness of both extremes.

In the Rider Waite’s Four of Cups, the tarot card coalesced with this decan, a levitating hand offers a cup to a man perched beneath a tree (already in possession of three cups). The adept’s crossed arms imply the refusal to claim more than he requires, and this card’s ascetic interpretation echoes the ethics of Victorian esotericists accountable for its creation.

Paralleling this decan’s Jupitarian rulership (via triplicity/ parasara), multiple images unravel excursion in search for affluence. In Ibn Ezra, Cancer III depicts “a man… (who) intends to go to sea and bring gold and silver to make rings for his wives.” Not only is this search pertinent to luxurious commodities (in the form of gold and silver), but the concept of excess extends to partner multiplicity. Again, in the Birhat Jakarta, we encounter “a man with serpents… crossing the ocean in search of wife’s jewels.” Both men navigate the sea (Pisces/ Neptune in modern rulership) in search of abundance (Jupiter).

At 20° 14′, fixed star Castor, in the head of the Northern Twin, precisely conjoins the Sun and Luna. Castor, illuminated beside its counterpart Pollux, is a binary star associated with “skill in taming and managing horses.” [Robson p.154] In the Larousse Encyclopedia of Astrology, Castor is associated with “guile and duplicity.” According to Brady, Castor conjunct Luna fosters therapeutic use of humor and the involvement in education. In paran with the Sun, Castor promotes “skilled language and professions linked with writing and communication”. [Brady p.146]

Luna-ruled Cancer, beyond its correspondence to the foundational roots of physical home and family (including the maternal womb), refers to the body as habitat for spirit. Therefore, the physical vessel must be honored in the pursuit of earthly work. As the interminable escapade for security unfurls through this decan’s imagery (summoning visions of jewels, luxuries, and excess), we realize that the only authentic source of security stems from within.

Favorably, an earthy grand trine between Capricornian Saturn, Taurean Uranus and Juno, and Virgoan Venus and Ceres fosters the solidity necessary to ground our higher self in the physical sphere. Further support is offered by the continuing Jupiter-Neptune trine, activating all three water signs via eclipse energy, and harnessing the fortitude of our imaginations and sense of initiative.

As eclipses become potent accelerators of transformation and growth via endings and renewals, the Cancerian lunation emotively dismantles, albeit uncomfortably, facets of our lives that neither nurture nor support our core progression. Despite this lunation’s tenebrous facade, eclipse energy illuminates the obscured stagnancy that, under Cancerian influence, beckons intuitive and emotive release.

The exact solar and lunar opposition to Pluto intensifies the transformative potency of this lunation. Pluto stirs an impenetrable force that incessantly functions within the depths of our unconsciousness, as its energies govern both our undercurrents and elevation. Arriving as inconspicuously as a new day’s dawn, its energy transforms from a core, visceral foundation, and alters the self with impervious permanence. As a vehicle for transformative transcendence, Pluto molds the self as a silhouette salvaged from the depths of putridity. In evolutionary essence, its planetary vestige is one of grace and regeneration.

*Note: In our charts, the house near 20 degrees Cancer is the focal point for potential rebirth. Prominent planets on or in close proximity to the eclipse’s degree will manifest change more rapidly. As always, for further insight, we refer to the previous two eclipses (namely, the 1/31/18 Leo lunar eclipse and the 2/15/18 Aquarius solar eclipse, respectively).

The New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse occurs on July 12, 2018, at 10:47 PM EDT.
