“I’ve always kept clear of my father’s stuff ever since I got out on my own. And now he’s pulling me back in. He knew I wanted this boat and he used it and he got me working for him, which I swore I would never do. I feel ashamed because I had a price. He named it and now I know that about myself.”
–Patricia, Joe vs. the Volcano
Over the last few weeks I’ve noted people on the boards talking about Saturn aspects in relationship, the good, the bad. I’ve brought up that I think Saturn contacts in synastry are essential for longevity. I couldn’t come up with a concise explanation, though, which always irks me. I just found one in a song,
“Some people say a man is made out of mud
A poor man’s made out of muscle and blood
Muscle and blood, skin and bones…
A mind that’s weak and a back that’s strong.”
“You load sixteen tons, and what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in debt
St. Peter, don’t you call me, ’cause I can’t go
I owe my soul to the company store.”
It’s about work that never ends. That’s why Saturn contacts in synastry are like glue. That contact acts like a job to do, a job that never ends. You’re working on the relationship. To some that seems like a burden, to others it’s commitment.
Do you have Saturn contacts in synastry? Is it work? How do you feel about work?
