is exalted (best placed) in Cancer, for here it expands your desire to
nurture, and indicates a compassionate worldview.
You tend to philosophize and share what you've learned with your
intimates, as well as to blend your personal experiences with your
philosophical ideas. Usually
sociable and friendly, you work well with the public, but often don't
reach your full potential until middle age.
Other things being equal, you will have material success, and
should be able to acquire property and money.
If Jupiter is afflicted, however, you may need to relax your
purse strings and exercise more givingness.

is a minor aspect the strength of which depends on how close it is to
being exact (its “orb”). Refer to the “Strength” rating above
for this aspect’s relative strength and therefore its applicability to
is a warning to become more responsible to and for yourself.
Don’t avoid using the powers and talents (even moral and
spiritual ones) that you've been given.
Marc Edmund Jones called the Square version of this aspect a
"last chance" lifetime, for if you allow what you have to
atrophy, your later years will be those of regret over unused
opportunities. Your judgment may be impaired due to too much
restless, have difficulties with self-discipline, and tend to start new
projects before you've completed the old ones.
Taking the easy way out can be very painful, if you have to come
back to square one again and again.
in Gemini is a strong placement, for it deepens the mind, supports
concentration, and removes some of the superficiality otherwise
associated with Gemini. The test here is to learn to have faith and a
positive attitude. You'd make a good teacher if Mercury is not badly
afflicted. If Saturn is afflicted you’ll be apart from relatives
mentally and physically, and need to overcome patterns of negative
thinking. You avoid superficiality, dislike small talk, but may have
difficulty making connections and linking up with others. You need to
learn how to investigate, to search out answers and explore
possibilities. Basic communication skills are required. Avoid nerve
strain, tension, and smoking. Saturn returns to each sign once every 29
or 30 years for about a three-year stay. Saturn was in Gemini from
5/1942 to 6/1944, from 6/1971 to 4/1974, and from 4/2001 to 6/2003.

born with Saturn conjunct Uranus have incarnated to help bridge the gap
between the Piscean and the Aquarian ages. (This aspect occurs every 46
years, most recently from May 1941 to April 1943 in Gemini, and from
December 1986 to November 1989 on the Sagittarius-Capricorn cusp.)
You're rebellious with a strong need to be free, and won't accept any
authority but your own. You need to be your own boss, and have a hard
time working for anyone else. There's a constant battle going on within
you between the world as it is, with all its laws and limitations, and
what it would ideally be like without having to go through the work and
lengthy self-discipline to make it so. This is an explosive combination
in which your energy simmers undercover for long periods, and then
suddenly erupts and blows to pieces what you've slowly built up over
time. When Saturn by transit activates this conjunction, your
conservative and law-abiding side will be stimulated. When transiting
Uranus aspects this conjunction, however, the rebel in you will be
stimulated, and the tendency to act suddenly and without restraint will
come to the fore. I'm available for personal or telephone consultations
regarding this and all other transits.

have the ability to ground and make spiritual ideas a practical matter,
bringing them down to earth and into everyday life - practical religion,
down-to-earth mysticism. You have great discipline when it comes to
working with spirituality and unity, whatever binds or links all of us
together. You would be able to teach and show others these realms.
= 76/100, orb = 1.23°/4.5°
are intensely driven to establish your own power and yourself as an
authority figure within society. This
has made you intimately aware of your capacities, and by what career you
could establish your authority. You
well know the discipline, training, and credentials necessary for your
career, and should be able to make the most out of your life.
You have great strength and powers of endurance, and tremendous
potential for material growth.

were born when Saturn was at the highest point in the sky on the day of
your birth, its strongest and most “natural” position in a
horoscope. Depending on its exactness (see "strength" and
"orb" just above), this could be the most significant aspect
in your chart! Power is a great test for you in this incarnation: you
need humility in your climb to the top or those you abuse on the way up
will bring about a great fall.
You will have a lot of lessons through the way in which you
strive for success.
father was probably distant or entirely absent, in which case you lack a
father image. As with many people having this aspect, you may either
become more successful with age, or repeatedly start over again due to
the many obstacles in your way. You have great business sense, but
frequently have problems with your dominant parent.
Saturn is in your ninth house AND also within 4° of your Midheaven
(check the orb in the header), THEN its expression through your tenth
house is at least as strong as through your ninth; if its orb is less
than 2°, it should be read as though it were in the tenth house and not
in the ninth at all!
