Mercury Opposition Saturn

Mercury Opposite Saturn Natal

This combination symbolizes a state of dynamic tension between the narratives of the day-to-day life and the organizational structures within which you find yourself contained. If you were overly controlled by authority figures in your early development, then there could be passive-aggressive attempts at undermining these, which may need to come out into the open as full-on rebellion before a balance can be struck. If structure was lacking early on, you may then drift without a clear purpose until something forces you to become more serious. It may be that you need to balance any areas of life where things are tightly controlled and structured with others that are more fluid and spontaneous. Eventually, you will learn how to alternate between structure and stream of consciousness approaches and finally the freedom to choose either, as your psyche or the situation demands, will arise.

Mercury Opposite Saturn Transit

This transit suggests a challenge to existing boundaries, structures, or authority hierarchies. Shifts to allow more or less of these may be needed but not allowed, or vice versa. This is generally a quick transit that comes around once per year, but as often as six to seven years or as seldom as thirteen years apart, Mercury will make a series of three oppositions with the middle one occurring during retrograde motion. This is a much more significant transit that relates to an inner need to make major adjustments to your sense of discipline and authority. You may be asked to grant freedoms that were previously inconceivable to you, or you may find yourself needing to ask for something you either have no right to ask for or no reasonable expectation of receiving. Shifting things around through various permutations may be necessary before the puzzle pieces can fall into place.
