Souls born with Saturn in Scorpio encounter many emotional lessons that bring pain and suffering until they learn to master and control (Saturn) their strong desire nature (Scorpio). This pain that you cause yourself will be the purifier of your emotional temperament. If you persist in rigid and unyielding/crystallized attitudes (Saturn) it could result in crystallizations in the body such as arthritis, gallstones, and arteriosclerosis. Resourceful, shrewd, secretive and occasionally withdrawn, depending on Saturn's hard aspects (if any) you may also be vindictive, destructive, ruthless, and jealous. Your strong lust for power will be supported or blocked according to Saturn's aspects. You may be fascinated by the occult, and have the ability to get beneath the surface of existing conditions so as to use them to your best advantage.
If other aspects concur (Saturn in the fourth, eighth, or twelfth house; Moon or Venus in Scorpio; hard aspects from Mars or Pluto; or hard aspects from Pluto to the Moon, Mercury, Venus or Mars) there can be sexual blockage or repression with this placement, or difficulty with letting go as it relates to intimacy with another. Saturn is the master of disguises, even to oneself, so you may overcompensate for this sometimes by being very sexy or the perfect lover while not really being able to surrender to the feelings of the moment. It can also manifest through financial difficulties with partners, possibly because the other may consciously or unconsciously feel that money or things are all they can get out of the Saturn in Scorpio individual. The emotional isolation this brings seeks a solution through intense and transformatory unions with others, but must truly be overcome by an inner change in oneself.
Once you have persevered through your own emotional transformation you will naturally draw to you those in whose shoes you once walked. At that time, having mastered these issues in yourself you could be their guide out of their emotional isolation. If so, a career in assisting others—perhaps even in a sexual context—might be appropriate and fulfilling for you, although other placements or aspects need to support that, often including some emphasis on the eighth house. Saturn returns to each sign once every 29 or 30 years for about a three-year stay. Saturn was in Scorpio from December 1923 to November 1926, from October 1953 to October 1956, from December 1982 to November 1985, and from October 2012 to December 2014.
