Saturn contacts in synastry are relationship glue, attachments that hold it together. They also show restriction and pressure, restriction to the energy of the planet they aspect and pressure to learn and mature. Sometimes pressure will mold things into a more mature form and other times it crushes or pushes away. In any case it brings serious attention to whatever it touches.
Wherever transiting Saturn hits our charts is where we’re creating structure and learning lessons. This is the same when someone’s Saturn hits your chart. Relating to this person creates structure in the areas it touches. Saturn lessons learned create security, mastery. When two people relate on this serious level it creates attachment and bonding. Your Saturn creates work for them; their Saturn creates work for you. When two people work together successfully it is a shared experience that is not easily discarded. This creates longevity in the relationship. This works best when both people invest. It creates structure from sweat equity and therefore security through the attachment to the investment.
Saturn aspects can be very challenging but very rewarding. Work and maturity can pay off. It’s not sexy but it’s valuable.
