Sun conjunct Saturn will happen in tropical Sagittarius, sidereal Scorpio and constellational Ophiuchus on December 10th, 2016, at 11:51:10 UT (06:51:10 EST).
Sun conjunct Saturn is mostly adverse to that which is commonly termed ’easy success’ or ’keep-smiling/keep-shining’ attitude, but it gives an abundance of experiences, so that is excellent from the standpoint of the ennoblement of Soul. Sun conjunct Saturn is often truly the ’Bitter Cup’ of the sufferings what Christ is talking about. (’It is a bitter cup that is to be drunk of; a cup of trembling, but not the cup of the wicked. It is but a cup, it is but a draught, bitter perhaps, but soon emptied; it is a cup in the hand of a Father’, Joh 18:11) Frequently, with this conjunction, no matter how carefully the natives plan their affairs, they will be subject to delays and some sort of obstacle which thwart their desires; as if they were held in leash all their life and denied expression in any direction. Of course, the specific manifestations of these delays and obstacles depend on the astrological house in which this conjunction occurs.
Sun conjunct Saturn in tropical Sagittarius is favourable to the ambition of establishing broad speculative structures, coherent philosophical systems to understand the deepest inducements of the human existence. The philosopher with such a conjunction is philantropic and pious, but, at the same time, thanks to the ’saturnine’ disposition, may keep somehow an outsider status also.
