Love Takes Time as Mars Opposes Saturn

Passion planet Mars faces off with cautious Saturn this week, and delays with intimacy are likely.

Hesitation is a hallmark of relationships under this aspect, as each person hits the brakes. Long-term commitment and lasting passion are the ideal outcomes of any Mars-Saturn aspect, but careful choices must be made to ensure romantic success.

The opposition aspect is one linked to relationship, where planets align like two kids on different ends of a seesaw. When one goes up, the other comes down, but there’s a sweet spot in the middle where the seesaw is horizontal, and each child is the same distance from the ground.


Share a free sample Sexual Soul Mates Reading. This hot and steamy reading for two will help you uncover your deepest desires and enhance your connection as a couple.

What appears in love this week is that sweet spot. Mars symbolizes heat and passion; Saturn represents effort and commitment. The two are not mutually exclusive, but finding lasting togetherness with someone you’re still turned on by requires effort.

Due diligence is required as the Mars-Saturn opposition brings a passionate reality check. Do you feel safe enough with your partner that you can reveal your soft side, or are you always protecting yourself? It takes great courage to banish fear and reveal vulnerability, but the only way to know if a relationship can last is to do just that.

Your choices in the world of romance this week are to either feel the fear and do it anyway (whatever it means for your situation) or let the fear of Saturn freeze your heart against even the warmest of gestures.

If you’re normally impulsive in love, take a lesson from Saturn -- go slow and plan things. If you’re normally reserved when it comes to romance, take charge and initiate something fun. The love seesaw swings regardless of your efforts, so you might as well get involved in the process. That way, you’re much more likely to get what you desire.
