Moon Square Saturn

Moon Square Saturn

Moon square Saturn is an aspect that has to grow up quickly, therefore deep inside Saturn’s armour is a very soft-centred needy child. The subject though is loathed to show this very fragile side of their character, so most of the time they appear very strong, capable and most of all independent. The suppressed needs will very often come out as incapacitating illness or depression, that way they get the care they feel they don’t deserve to ask for.Moon square Saturn may have experienced their parents as quite critical so this is what stops them from expressing their more needy emotions. They find it hard to be spontaneous, but are excellent planners. This aspect tends to attract wayward and irresponsible partners that they have to parent OR conversely attract older and parental mates that take on all the responsibility. If their mate is the boss then, Moon square Saturn may be constantly in a rebellious child situation.

The main issue with Moon square Saturn is a premature requirement to be self-sufficient. The mother may have been ill or unavailable, so that the child had to parent themselves or younger siblings. Another manifestation of this aspect would be expressing nurturing in a more masculine fashion, practical rather than emotional support. Growing up may have been very Spartan, the home could be a place of work and have a traditional solid feel about it. However the emotional void might leave the child desperately needy and clingy in relationships, if they can bring themselves even to admit it. This needy child is most likely to come out when drunk or through illness. The aspect maybe cold comfort, but its more positive side is that it will be reliable, generally financially solvent and be there for practical support. Don’t expect a hug, but Moon square Saturn will clear up your vomit!

Moon Square Saturn Celebrities

Marilyn Monroe I think is a very good example of how much of a paradox this aspect can be. Her childbearing hips were anything but Spartan, but they were no way maternal. She is a good example of the “Trapped Child” that astrologer Sue Tompkins refers too.[1] Of course Marilyn had no mothering from her mentally ill mother and grew up in various foster homes. Her femininity is also strange. On screen she radiated sex, but it was such over-the-top glamour, unreal, and was she really comfortable with her sexuality truly? She was known to switch-on Marilyn for her fans, which suggests some Saturnian detachment.. Marilyn shows all the vulnerability of this aspect and also the great need to conform and be accepted as a sexy, glamorous female.

  1. I have SA/MO Ar/Ca, 7 deg. wide but with me being a triple Cander I felt it to the N’th degree.
    My mother was mentally challenged, working all the time, single mum, used to leave me on my own in a flat from the age of 3. All day long. So my primary relationship was with books and it took me decades to put myself together. Parents divorced at 2.5yrs (Saturn cycle) and I developed into a workaholic, ambitious and emotionally cut off. I’d say Marina is right – I experienced my mother as Hitler, border line abusive personality, and grew up never having a memory of playing, laughing or doing anything with my mother. As a result, I decided not to have children. I’m happiest now then I have ever been in my whole life but it took decades of hard personal development work.

  2. I’m a Capricorn and I have this with a 4th hs Saturn in early Pisces sq a late Scorpio Moon in the 1st. For the first two years of my Life my Piscean mother was suffering from a bad case of postnatal depression, which probably had something to do with Saturn transiting her early Pisces Moon, then hitting Chiron in Pisces, then hitting her late Pisces Sun, which took about 2 years. I suspect my inability to recognize and decipher women’s positive feelings dates back to this time, when my mother was not exactly in a smiling mood and I was supposed to learn to read faces. Now, 50 years later, my mother still accuses me for her depression. I do not express my needs, nor do I expect to have them met. Not surprisingly, my needs, especially the emotional ones, are not met. Frankly, I don’t really even know how to express my needs and even if I did, I’d expect either rejection or ridicule in return. The women in my life have turned cold, sooner or later, usually sooner. There is no female comfort in my life. There is actually very little comfort of any kind in my life. My home is literally cold, because it has no heating. Well, it doesn’t really have walls either, since it’s a tent. Yes, I’m homeless. I don’t mind if my woman is a few years older, as long as I have one. Well, I don’t have one, I rarely do, but if I had one, I wouldn’t care about her age. I’m really low maintenance. Life is very sad, bleak and void of hope.

    On the other hand, if you need somebody to take some hits for you, I’m your man. I’ll defend pretty much anybody and my life sucks so bad I don’t care if I die in the process, which makes me the worst possible opponent for just about any goon. I care about getting the job done, whatever it may be. I can endure more discomfort than most people can imagine. I can be my own parent. People who come from crappy families can enjoy my special presence. I can be a surrogate Daddy, if yours sucks. My parenting advice is very practical.
