When looking at natives born during it, it can be noticed how they have problems expressing their dark side or making efforts to develop their careers.

They’re holding themselves back and while caring, generous and tolerant with other people in their life, they can’t seem to know anything about timing, especially when it comes to them to do something for themselves.

Natives born during the Mars conjunct Saturn transit are all the time trying to change their desires and have a fear of asserting or defining themselves in a precise manner. They tend to give up too often, especially when the world doesn’t seem to offer them what they’re asking for.

It’s very likely for them to think of projects and to take too much time before starting to work on them, which can’t be changed, perhaps after investing many sustained efforts.

If they make some changes about this, however, it’s because they’re trying to deal with their fears and the unbalance in their desires. It would be a good thing for them to accomplish all this because they’d feel more secure this way.

People having the Mars conjunct Saturn in their natal chart need to exercise heavily at least 3 times a week if it’s for them to keep being healthy all the time. They’re very serious about making their dreams come true and feeling like they’re supposed to mind their own business all the time.

Hardworking, ready to invest many efforts in their endeavors and focusing on a single project can help them get what they want when they want it.

These people are masters of self-control, but they can also deny themselves the fact that they’re talented, which can impede them from accomplishing anything. When facing difficulties, they’ll have enough patience to deal with them and to invest all of their efforts in finding solutions.

These natives usually feel like there’s no one else besides themselves on whom they can rely, so they can take on any responsibility and deal with it in the most disciplined way, but the fact that they’re expecting too much from both themselves and others could be a real problem for them. They’re often putting obstacles in their way, more when not trusting their abilities.

Natives born during the Mars conjunct Saturn aspect may think others are working against them and be too weak to ever take the initiative, which can make them feel very frustrated.

However, they’re also enduring and determined enough to overcome any difficult situation. As said before, they’re hardworking, strong, resourceful and bold, no matter how dangerous the circumstances in which they’re involved may be. It’s very likely some of them will suffer a lot in life, even from a physical point of view, by having more or less serious handicaps.

If the Mars conjunct Saturn aspect in their birth chart is negatively afflicted, people can turn into angry, mean and aggressive individuals who are only influencing others in a bad way.

Those with a heavy Mars conjunct Saturn aspect may be destructive out of their own will, tyrannical and abusive, not to mention they can suppress their anger most of the time and explode at some point when others are least expecting.

Regardless of the afflictions at their birth, all the individuals brought into the world during the Mars conjunct Saturn are uptight and strong, whereas those of them having a weak Sun sign are big procrastinators with no ambition whatsoever.

Disciplined and very organized, they at least know how to save money, but they aren’t very good with timing, this causing many of the conflicts in their life and their fear of taking action.

It’s difficult for them to control their energy, not to mention they seem to have a special talent at making enemies.

Those of them with a heavily afflicted aspect can suffer from the complex of persecution and have sexual problems or with their health, according to what sign Mars is occupying in their natal chart.

They may not end up possessing real power if they’ve been abused in the past. As mentioned before, the Mars conjunct Saturn transit is known to bring about frustrations and difficulties in expressing negative feelings.

Not being able to come in contact with their darkest side and to make their strange thoughts known, they can have problems in their career, especially from a creative point of view.

In case Mars conjunct Saturn in the birth chart is in a negative aspect with a fixed star, people with such placement should expect to see the evil manifestation of this position. The best thing for them would be to express themselves creatively and as positively as possible.

Mars is the planet known to make natives focus more on their goals, so those with true passions, no matter how dark, need to only be disciplined and determined enough to succeed, to turn the energies coming to them from the Universe into efficient and optimistic endeavors, not something destructive for both themselves and others.

In case the lunar aspects are as well evil for them, they’ll not have a good time at all, so the effects of the Mars conjunct Saturn on them will be too strong and according to the other directions taken by different placements in their chart.

However, they need to keep in mind the conjunction between Mars and Saturn is asking them to keep everything in their life in correct proportions, especially if they want to have balance in their life.

The energy coming their way from the conjunction between these two celestial bodies will make people feel angrier than usual, meaner and more vengeful. However, in case they’ll focus their physical efforts on something creative, they’ll manage to be productive and optimistic most of the time.
