Moon square Saturn or Moon opposition Saturn grows up quickly, therefore deep inside Saturn’s armour is a very soft-centred, needy child. The subject 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.
The native 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. The opposition especially tends to attract wayward and irresponsible partners that they have to parent OR conversely, these subjects can attract older and parental mates that take on all the responsibility. If their mate is the boss then, the Moon square Saturn may play the rebellious child.

The main issue with Moon square or opposition Saturn is the 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.
