Moon conjunct Saturn

         This is a difficult aspect to live with until you learn to put your life and your own needs in perspective. You have a strong tendency to depression and negative thinking that you may still be holding onto from a past life. In this one your lesson is to learn how to experience, feel and cultivate positive emotions: joy, optimism, faith and feelings of pleasure. You are very sensitive, with great depth and responsibility; but you isolate yourself by too much focus on yourself and a timid, moody and suspicious nature. The house this conjunction is in shows that area of your life in which your work needs to be done.

         You may feel that your mother or your family didn't provide you with emotional support, nurturance or feelings of closeness and warmth. Or there may have been an emphasis on duty and correct behavior while you were growing up, and you've learned to control and put a clamp on your feelings, either through copying your parent's behavior, or in reaction to the hurt and loneliness that the absence of their nurturance caused. Unable to depend on others or on your own instincts, you may have to burn your bridges behind you at some point in order to develop into a complete person. You are being given the opportunity (or being forced) in this life to become a more conscious, thinking being. Your feeling nature, the line of least resistance most people depend upon and from which they instinctually and habitually operate, is not as available to you to fall back upon. And since your habit patterns easily form hard-to-escape ruts, be conscious and discriminating at the outset as to what you are becoming habituated to.

         If you are a male and threatened by your feelings, you may draw to you women who symbolize exactly that aspect of your psyche you deny: dominant, instinctual types representing the voracious lunar goddess. Or you may attract the more Saturnine type: undemonstrative, cold and demanding. You may in fact dislike women, and, if there are strong feminine planets in your chart, prefer men as partners. Marriage is often difficult and beset with problems.

         In a female chart there is a propensity toward chronic illness due to unexpressed emotions short-circuiting in the body. Often it is the feeling nature (fear of rejection, disappointment, humiliation), not the physical body that is at the root of the sickness. You may also feel cut off from your own femininity, or from accepting yourself as a woman. In this case you will need to discover your femininity separate from your associations with your mother and her role.

         For both sexes Saturn conjunct the moon offers the opportunity of emotional freedom and true independence. You can consciously come to terms with your own femaleness, as well as with the mother who stands behind that femaleness. The experience and understanding of this great mystery is your reward.
