Back on the Mars Saturn aspect, when I was 17, I momentarily had nowhere to live, so I moved into the soldier’s barracks. And I had forgotten this entirely until he reminded me when we got in contact a few years ago. How you can forget something like this, I have no idea. I’m a Saturn Neptune type. But once reminded I remembered it vividly. Well some of it.
Last night I was talking to him and more details surfaced which brilliantly illustrate the Mars Saturn aspect.
“I used to guard you in there,” he said.
“I would guard you. I would stand guard (Saturn) wherever you went so no men (Mars) would bother you.”
“You did? You guarded me?”
“Yes! Like when you took a shower, I would stand outside and guard you so no one would come in there.”
“What? I took a shower there?” As soon as I said it, I knew it was stupid. Of course I took a shower there. How else am I going to get clean?”
“Yes you took a shower and I would stand outside and let no one in. I want a take a shower, one of the guys would say. No, I’d tell them. You can’t! (Saturn restriction of soldiers / Mars). You’re just going to have to wait (delay) because she’s in there and you’re not going in and if you try, then I guess I’ll have to kill you.
“No one ever tried, so no one ever died. I’m surprised you don’t remember this, P.”
“I do now. I remember that… you doing that now. I was scared (Saturn) of all those men (Mars). They made me very nervous.”
“With good reason. Those men were heathens, P. Most of them. Hell, maybe even all of them. There are all kinds of heathens in the military. Men are dogs and there was no way I was going to let them get anywhere near you. Who knows what they’d do it they if they had a chance, so they weren’t going to have a chance.”
“I see. Well I’m glad you did that. Thanks for guarding me so I could take a shower.”
“You’re welcome. Nothing was going to happen to you on my watch. Nothing at all, I can promise you that. I made sure you were completely safe at all times.”
So there you go. He’s controlling (Saturn) the situation with his prowess (Mars). Threat of violence (Mars) against men not respecting a boundary (Saturn) because he feels it’s the right thing to do (Integrity / Saturn)
Can you relate? Do you have a Mars Saturn aspect in your chart?
