Saturn conjunct North Node in Natal,Transit and Synastry

Natal Saturn conjunct North Node:

Saturn conjunct North Node in a natal chart generally indicates a Saturnian approach in achieving the North Node purpose.

But what does this mean? Let’s break it down:

As most of you know, Saturn in astrology is infamously known as a ‘’the taskmaster” or a ‘’harsh teacher’’. Saturn energy is serious, practical, dutiful, and sometimes taxing.

Do you want to know what some of the toughest life lessons you are having in this lifetime? Look at your natal Saturn placement. As difficult as it may be, Saturnian lessons are the key to maturity. This is where we learn about discipline, commitment, limitation, authority and karma.

Now let’s talk about North Node. In a natal chart, North Node represents what your soul wants to accomplish and learn moving forward, therefore it is a key point in understanding your growth and expansion as a person.

On the opposite side, we have the South Node. South Node represents the lessons learned, behaviors you are accustomed to or in other words, your comfort zone.

Ideally, your mission is to move out of your comfort zone and into less comfortable but more rewarding path of the North Node.

South Node energy is the most prominent until about the age of 30. Around this time, Saturn return generally activates our North Node mission.

So with natal Saturn conjunct North Node, finding your life purpose and karma is a serious responsibility.

Releasing resistance is one of these responsibilities in this lifetime. Saturn energy doesn’t want to indulge in new things. Therefore, most people with this aspect find it hard to let go of the past and change their direction. But change is necessary to mature and evolve, and Saturn conjunct North Node is all about maturing.

As every planet, Saturn has a good and a bad side. If it receives predominantly harmonious aspects, Saturn can give discipline and structure.

On the more negative side, it can also give delays, blockages or an overall pessimistic attitude towards life.

Additionally, how this aspect manifests itself also depends on what house it is in. For example, someone with natal Saturn conjunct North Node in 7th house can have a very committed and responsible approach towards relationships. If it is harshly aspected, relationships can feel burdensome or prohibiting instead. Karmic relationships may be a significant factor in achieving life purpose.

Overall, best approach with natal Saturn conjunct North Node is acceptance. Sooner you accept the Saturnian changes that life throws at you, sooner you will ease into your North Node life purpose.
