Moon trine Saturn is a great balance of intuition and realism. The sensitive moon and severe Saturn do not usually make easy bedfellows, but the trine warms and soften things here nicely. The over-riding theme is the need to achieve so as to build personal security. Moon trine Saturn may have grown up with a critical or strict mother so they are used to keeping to a fixed timetable, getting all their homework done and deferring gratification.These folk have a very strong work ethic and the stamina and patience to see a job through to the bitter end no matter what obstacles confront them.
Moon trine Saturn can be quite status hungry, this may come from a deep insecurity of whether they are truly talented or beautiful enough. The trine here does seem to attract wealth and they really don’t need to work half as hard as they think they do to get it either. Moon trine Saturn seems to exude trustworthiness and capability. You have the feeling they will look after your money responsibly since they tend to be thrifty. Moon trine Saturn are famous for their hoarding, they love nostalgia and can be big collectors. Some can go too far with the cool Saturn control, so that the suppressed Moon can sometimes well up with intense emotion out of nowhere. There is often a surprisingly soft marshmallow center under the cool Moon trine Saturn armour.
Moon Trine Saturn Natives
Andy Warhol made his name in the Pop Art movement making iconic screen prints of the rich, famous and glamorous. Some of his paintings are the most expensive in the world. As a child he was sickly and often bedridden, he was rarely at school so he bonded with his mother. He spent most of his childhood drawing in his bed surrounded by photos of movie stars. During the 1960’s he founded his Moon trine Saturn named art studio, “The Factory”. Andy’s subject matter was American consumer culture. “America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coca-Cola, Liz Taylor drinks Coca-Cola, and just think, you can drink Coca-Cola, too.” ~ Andy Warhol.
Andy liked to surround himself with an entourage of bohemians whom he dubbed “Superstars”. Valerie Solanas (herself with Moon trine Saturn), was on the fringe of this clique. The feminist author of the radical S.C.U.M manifesto attempted to murder Warhol at his studio, because she said “He had too much control over my life”.. This was her own negative projection of the same Saturn energy in her own chart.
Andy Warhol was openly gay, but maintained he was a virgin. In interviews he was extremely reticent and would only volunteer two word answers to inquires about his paintings. He was very private man, a quietly devout Ruthenian Rite Catholic and an avid collector. He amassed 641 boxes of “stuff” which included collections of airplane menus, pornographic pulp novels, wigs, stamps, supermarket flyers, biscuits jars and even a mummified foot.
Debra Winger (01’), Academy award winning American actress with a reputation of being difficult and mouthy. “Most bad behavior comes from insecurity. Even though I loved what I was doing, I didn’t always know I could pull it off. (…) I took [my insecurities out] on everybody. But in my defense, I never fought about the size of my trailer or things like that; it was always about the work” Debra suffered a car accident as a teenager, she was left critically injured having suffered a brain haemorrhage which half paralysed her. The doctors told her she would never see again. She vowed if she survived she would become an actress. The Saturn resilience shows in her attitude to her work, but the force of the trauma on one so young must’ve left its scar hence her insecurities as an adult.
