Characteristics Sun and Saturn Conjunction:

  • Saturn and Sun conjunctions are not as bad as you think. Mainstream astrological media says the Sun and Saturn are enemies because Saturn was betrayed by his father, the Sun, in ancient mythology.
  • Most of the time, father and son cannot get along in real life. There is a tug of war between the Sun and Saturn.
  • However this war only takes place if Saturn and the Sun are between 9-14 degrees. Within 9 degrees, Saturn is combust and does not have the power to fight the Sun, and beyond 14 degrees, the Sun and Saturn are too far apart in the house to really influence each other.
  • The delicate effect of Saturn and the Sun happens in a gray zone, when they are neither too close or far apart in degrees.
  • They fight for justice and fight to protect the kingdom, or in modern times, the current government.
  • A successful lawyer, government official, and head of a company can be seen from this conjunction, especially in the 6th, 7th, 9th and 10th House.
  • They are very mature for their age and take full responsibility for their own actions.
  • This conjunction means duty and serving the higher power.
  • This doesn't mean you are a slave. In modern times it means you are serving the government or serving as one of the high executives in a company.
  • Organizing and managing larger departments is one of their strengths, whether it's working in government information technology, business, or even the entertainment field.
  • In the house where this conjunction is occurring, there is a great deal of responsibility and duty towards these things.
  • If this occurs in the 4th House for example, the person would have a lot of responsibility towards the family and home.
  • If the Sun is debilitated in this conjunction, or if Saturn is in Libra along with the Sun, then the self confidence and ego of the person faces a constant reality check and will keep him or her grounded.
  • Another rule of thumb is that the exalted planet sitting with debilitated planets will always give some of his power to his weaker companions.
  • In this case, the Sun will be rescued by Saturn while Saturn will be drowning in the Sun himself.
