Saturn Midpoints mean discipline!
Those without much Saturn in their charts must work at accepting responsibility and building discipline into their make-up in order to progress. Those with too much Saturn in their charts must work at not oppressing themselves and others in order to develop using effective Saturn principles.
Learning to accept responsibility and bearing your burdens patiently is development of discipline. This is growth but there is a fine line where growth will become martyrdom.
Acceptance of too much duty will be as ineffective as the individual without many Saturn contacts who refuses to accept any responsibility.
With heavy Saturn contacts in your chart you must ask yourself the following questions: Am I still open to new ways of thinking or am I imprisoned in orthodoxy? Has my extremely narrow family traditional outlook strengthened or oppressed others? Am I narrow and bigoted in my thinking?
Tradition is most effective when an individual continues to allow for his or her own personal development as well as the freedom for others to develop their own strengths. Inflicting narrowness on another’s life and oppressing that individual’s development is not strength. This is tyranny and too many of us with heavy Saturn in our charts do this without realizing it.
Are you a strength-builder or just an oppressive inhibiter in the lives of your loved ones?
