Saturn opposed Ascendant

Any planet conjunct one of the four angles is significant, and when that planet is Saturn, the planet of tests, limits, discipline and responsibility, it is very significant indeed. You were born as Saturn was setting in the west. "Saturn opposed the ascendant" is the same as Saturn conjunct the descendant or seventh house cusp; it is from the latter perspective that this aspect will be interpreted. The descendant is a symbolic condensation point for what we don't identify with in ourselves and therefore project onto or seek out in others or through intimate relationships. With this placement of Saturn you may seek a father figure in your partner, someone who can teach you how to stand on your own two feet and succeed in the world. Or, your intimate relationships may be arenas in which you and your partner explore and grow in responsibility and self-discipline together.

On a soul level, a separative tendency deep within makes it difficult for you to relate to others. You withdrew from people in a previous life, and now in this life you are being forced to deal with intimate one-to-one relationships. You need to learn cooperation and to understand the other person's feelings.

If Saturn is afflicted, there will be trouble in business partnerships. There may be an early marriage for reasons of security. You are very painstaking and deliberate when it comes to relationships of all kinds. You tend toward long-lasting friendships and are very loyal, sometimes too staid. It's easier for you to be alone, but you don't learn as much.

When Saturn is conjunct the descendant it can be in either the 6th or the 7th house. Saturn in the sixth house and within 3 or 4 of the descendant is on the "dark side" of the 7th house cusp and expresses itself in both houses. As it moves even closer to the descendant while yet in the 6th house it expresses itself more and more predominantly through the 7th. Still in the 6th and within about 1-1 of the descendant it should be considered as being in the 7th house. This dark side effect is true of all the planets and all the angles.

Famous people with a strong (orb < 3) Saturn-ascendant opposition are/were Woody Allen, Warren Beatty, Harry Belafonte, Polly Bergen, David Bowie, Richard Crenna, Kirk Douglas, Don Drysdale, Ernest Gallo, Joe Namath, Willie Nelson, Roy Orbison, Jack Paar, Ross Perot and David O. Selznick.
