Sun sextile or trine Saturn are great time keepers, organisers and natural leaders. They inspire obedience because they exude such capable authority. The soft aspects mean that these folk were probably not brought up with too many harsh rules and regulations, but nevertheless still have experienced unspoken limits and restraints in their domestic environment. Sometimes the father is quite cool and distant, or just has no interest in disciplining the child. In which case the mother becomes the prime authority figure. This means the child receives both affection and punishment from the same pot so to speak. No good cop/bad cop here!
In later life there can then be a preference for older, parental partners who can be a little stern in their affections. Sun trine Saturn in particular seems to need a great deal of material comfort and security from their spouse. Even with the softer aspects, there can be insecurity and craving for fame and fortune with Sun/Saturn. But first these natives have to overcome their shyness and fear of stepping out into the glaring, solar spotlight. Once these natives make that leap however, there can be no stopping them. They soon clock on to just how much people recognise their natural authoritative presence.
Cool Time Keepers
Sometimes this sudden realisation of power can go to their heads and they can become quite bossy. Talking of “clocking on” Saturn is of course associated with time, and these folk are fantastic at keeping to schedule. They also have great sense of time rhythmically, whether it is comic timing or just knowing the opportune moment to arrive at a meeting. This aspect has the ability to be at the right place at the right time and can therefore, strangely for Saturn, even be quite lucky. These folk pay special attention to synchronicity and often feel that many life events seem fated.
Sun/Saturn ~ Soft Aspects
Sun Sextile Saturn
Meryl Streep is generally considered the best actress of her generation according to wiki. She seems to have had the typical stern Saturnian upbringing of this aspect. Streep describes her mother as having the manner of Judy Dench and that “She was a mentor because she said to me, ‘Meryl, you’re capable. You’re so great.’ She was saying, ‘You can do whatever you put your mind to. If you’re lazy, you’re not going to get it done. But if you put your mind to it, you can do anything.”
As a child, Streep was quite introverted and attributes her mother with giving her the boosts of confidence she needed to succeed. Streep tends towards serious roles and her earlier attempts at comedy had not been so successful. Some Sun/Saturn, award winning roles include playing a polish holocaust survivor in Sophie’s choice, the portrayal of real-life, nuclear whistleblower Karen Silkwood and most recently, Iron lady Margaret Thatcher. As Streep has grow older, her comedic side seems to have become more successful. “Hope Springs” film about a mature relationship’s ups and erm.. downs was praised by critics

Sun Trine Saturn
Anna Nicole-Smith, playboy model and TV personality was probably most famous for her very Saturnian security marriage to an 89 year old oil tycoon. J Howard Marshall died 18 months after they married while Anna was 26. Many speculated Nicole-Smith married J Howard purely for his money. Even though Marshall did not include Nicole-Smith in his will, she claimed that he did indeed promise him half of his estate verbally. This even though Nicole-Smith “ reportedly never lived with him, never made love with him, or kissed him on the mouth more than ten times. Smith, however, maintained that she loved her husband, and age did not matter to her.” ~ Wiki.
Nicole-Smith also had a son who died at aged 20. She was devastated at his death and reportedly tried to get into his coffin at his funeral because she wanted to be buried with him. Nicole-Smith’s final partner, Howard K. Stern revealed that “Anna saw herself as both mother and father to Daniel. From the time I met her, everything was for Daniel.” [1.] Daniel died of a drug overdose. Like her son Anna Nicole-Smith also died in the same manner aged 39. It was said to be accidental death and not suicide due to the lethal mixing of prescription drugs with a sedative.
I was surprised to find so much evidence of the dark side of Sun/Saturn despite the so called “benefic’ trine connection. Possibly the ease of the trine facilitates bad behaviour, just as easily as it can produce good. In Nicole-Smith’s case it seems she could not handle the excesses that come with fame. The material security she so craved so badly, eventually became a prison.
