Does anyone have any information on what these following aspects mean?

In my natal chart Saturn is in my 4th house in Scorpio retrograde at 1.50 degrees

It also has hard aspects with almost everything in my chart.

Saturn opposite MC at 0 degree.

Saturn opposite Mars at  3 degree.

Saturn square Ascendant at 5 degree.

Saturn opposite Mercury at 6 degree.

Saturn opposite Sun  at 9 degree.

If saturn is opposite the MC (public life) it means it is conjunct your IC (where you feel comfortable). So I'm no proffessional astrologer I just play around with it but to me Saturn represents responsibility, restrictions & karma so I would say as a kid your life was very structured and you had to be responsible.  So as you get older maybe you let go a bit but I would say you still prefer to attend to all of your responsibilities, as opposed to just letting loose and forgetting about them Smile

Here is an interpretation of this particular aspect from astrofix.net

Anchored at the core. Restricted by your family, one of your parents or your heritage. Unsupported by your parents. Having had heavy family responsibilities. Family life is a burden. Home life was cold and sterile. An impoverished childhood. Feeling separate or isolated from the rest of your relatives. Home alone. Feeling neglected. Lack of ease and comfort within. Cut off from personal feelings. Basic insecurity. Basic fear of lack and neglect.

One of your parents may have imposed standards and conditions you had to meet to receive affection. You might have only received praise or positive reinforcement when you did everything according to the rules. Affection is conditional. Acceptance from your family requires living up to their standards. Nurturing is conditional. Sometimes it’s easier to be alone. Having had judgmental parents. Strict parents. Demanding parents. Parents who overly structured your private time. Tiger Mom. A sense of inner lack. Your relationship with your parents forms the core of your identity. Your understanding of expectations, limitations, hard work and a plan of action determines how far you go in life. Knowing how to hold your own. Tough on the inside.

Working hard to establish your own inner sense of security and belonging. Putting in the effort to make family life work. Putting in the effort to get in touch with your roots. Taking family life seriously. Taking all the ins and outs of familial relationships, heritage, roots, home,  and your tribe very seriously. Sensing that you are being  judged because of where you come from or what your roots are. Taking your role as a a parent very seriously: “I’ll do x, y, z that my parents never did.” Having ambition that wells up from within. Having expectations for yourself that come from with. Having a hard time meeting your own expectations. Feeling inferior or inadequate. Feeling the need to prove to yourself that you are somebody worthy of affection. Deeply conservative inside. Holding your feelings in check. Feeling cut off from having a private life.

Feeling responsible for your family home or land. Feeling that you have a duty to your country or place of origin. Learning how to control your interactions with family members so you don’t get hurt. Learning how to control your inner feelings. Learning how to control your expectations so you’re not disappointed. Mastering feelings of inadequacy. Learning to give yourself enough love so you feel good enough. Learning how not to withhold affection. Keeping a realistic perspective on your parents. Keeping a realistic perspective on your private life. A realist. Someone who can handle reality checks. Someone who understands boundaries and limitations and knows how to work with them. Taking your emotional security seriously. Making the necessary arrangements to feel safe and protected. Preserving your family traditions, or severing them if they no longer serve you. Having a very well-defined sense of an inner purpose which propels you in your outer work. Emotional security comes with age.

From astromatrix:

The opposition between Mars and Saturn indicates some conflict between your desires and your sense of responsibility. You alternate between moments of intense activity and periods when you cannot seem to gather the energy to accomplish anything. Your temperament is either aggressive or completely apathetic. You find it difficult to maintain a moderate position that would allow you to achieve your goals without 'highs' and 'lows'. You are the only obstacle in your path to achievement. You need to become self-disciplined in using your energy constructively, and you must establish goals within your reach. Resolve firmly that you will not let feelings of futility keep you from reaching them. You tend to be awed by the accomplishments of your associates or competitors, probably because you give them greater credit than they deserve. You desperately need competition so you can evaluate your own worth; ignorance of your capabilities is your greatest liability. The chances are that others will always have a higher opinion of your potential than you, and you will need to be reassured that your talents are genuine. Once you get over the idea of your unworthiness, you can go far. You must like yourself enough to feel that you deserve the success you can achieve, but you will have to assert yourself. You could find some expression in law enforcement, industrial engineering, military service, conservation, or physical therapy. Initially, you would probably work best alone, until you can convince yourself that you could make a significant contribution in your field. Later, you could work satisfactorily with others without feeling threatened by their competence. You tend to establish goals somewhat out of reach, which makes you unhappy with your accomplishments. It would be better for you to grow into higher levels of responsibility by taking one step at a time. In that way, your current security is never jeopardized. Your personal and romantic relationships never measure up to your expectations. Your desires always seem to be frustrated or to encounter great difficulties. The phrase 'After you get what you want, you don't want it' is descriptive of your feelings in these relationships. In any case, it is doubtful that your desires will be fulfilled to your satisfaction, and some denial is to be expected. Moderation is necessary in all your affairs, or physical depletion can result. Rest is very important in order to maintain physical well-being. Accidents resulting in fractures are common with this planetary combination, as are problems affecting the joints, such as arthritis and bursitis. Moderate exercise is helpful if you get sufficient rest.

I didn't read the cookbook interpretations because, while helpful to a degree, it does not represent the "you" that a chart indicates.

I will say this:  Saturn in Scorpio on the Nadir (which is always opposite the Midheaven) does represent a very serious issue, usually, with childhood.  I read the Nadir as the father (from 30 years of experience in looking at charts) but some other, very qualified astrologers, read it as mother. 

Anyhoo, continuing with how I would read it:  Saturn at Nadir is issues with a very big issue in the home while growing up.  Opposing Sun is more father issues, opposing Mercury would be that you feel that you couldn't talk about the issues, opposing Mars would be that you felt that in no way could you stop what was going on.  Scorpio would indicate that there was a need to keep these issues secret, even buried in the psyche until such a time as you feel safe to bring them out. 

Having Saturn/Sun issues myself, I would say that self-confidence would be a theme in life for you, I voluntarily went to therapy as soon as I left home at 18 because I knew that my childhood was *messed up* and I wanted to get some clarity.  With Saturn opposing three very important personal planets (Sun, Mars, Mercury), I hope that you also find a way to figure out what was YOUR responsibility and what was HIS (if this is indeed an issue with your father).  The concern is that if you do not bring this into your consciousness, oppositions have a way of playing out with others throughout our lifetimes, and every 7 years you will have a strong re-play of the issues at the core.  I am of the opinion that the sooner I deal with my problems (which means learning how to manage them... I don't think we ever completely OVERCOME our problems) the sooner I can go on to be a productive adult.  Saturn is always asking us to take steps in self-responsibility, learning about our own integrity and then learning how to stand in it, something that you most likely weren't allowed to do as a child.

Do you have any other aspects to Saturn other than the square/opposition?  How is your Moon aspected?  I am just hoping to give you some ameliorating aspects so that you can draw on those strengths while dealing with the Saturn issues.

saturn opposite the sun feels to be internal. like because of something in childhood, you stop yourself, restrict yourself feel things are overly serious all of the time?

getting an in-depth reading with Elsa would be of great value for you since understanding and then utilizing your Saturn efficiently would streamline how you interact with the public and in your profession. not that everyone here can't give great input, it  sometimes is just better clarified and condensed by one expert.
