“You never heard of a comedy team that didn’t fight, did you?”
Synastry is evaluating how the energy of the other affects you and how your energy affects the other. You take the sum total of that, squint at it a bit, shake it up in a bag and decide if there’s enough good to outweigh the bad. If you look at it more closely it’s tough to realize what IS good and what is bad. Easy is not necessarily good. Difficult is not necessarily bad. The interaspect (aspect between planets in two charts) of Mars square Saturn is one of those that seems obviously difficult. It is, but that doesn’t make it a deal breaker.

Yesterday evening I was sitting in the soldier’s truck after he’d backed it down a long narrow residential street with children around, and through a narrow gate, cock-eyed. We were planning to unload and then go down the street and reload. I’ve helped him do both but never on the same day and I was happy wondering how much work it was going to be.
“I’ve been here for 20 minutes and I have barely got a kiss,” I said. “Why not?”

“… I’ve been pondering about the effects of the Mars (me) square Saturn (him) synastry aspect I have with my boyfriend. I always seem to be the keen â€˜leaper’ and am starting to feel a little rejected by the â€˜I’m too old’ rebuff I get from him. Is this Mars/Saturn at work then? I wonder how we can get round this satisfactorily…”
Yes that’s Mars Saturn but I don’t have much I can add. I really think if Saturn won’t work its end, Mars is going to be incredibly miserable.
Astrology in real life…
In synastry, when you compare charts and one person has their Saturn on the other person’s Mars, you will read that the Saturn person restricts the Mars person. This is seen as deal-breaker by many astrologers and can be very frustrating depending mostly on how flexible the Saturn person can be with their rules.
The soldier has his Saturn on my Mars and you can see the glaring evidence of this here. We get manage to get around this, but as the Mars person I can feel the crushing down on the natural physical fervor and exuberance that I feel when I see him… as I am encouraged to grow up by Saturn.
I am posting this so people can see an aspect like this is not the end of the world, particularly if the Saturn person is a “good parent”. If otherwise, Mars who gets blocked rushing in can become mad as spit and wish to kill Saturn, with a motorcycle helmet or whatever else may be on hand. Saturn of course, eats children but we do get around this all the time as this conversation illustrates. I wrote the conversation post the conflict because it is also an excellent example astrologically… Continue reading Saturn Square Mars In Synastry, Turns Out I Am Too Old To Leap!
