I, a Spirit, Incarnated into a Body When Saturn Would Be on My Chart's Descendant. This is what that means. And it means seeking men.

    When Saturn is around the descendant (7th house cusp), either in the late 6th house or early 7th house, at birth, we have what we will call a "Late Bloomer," and we can explain why that is. At birth, Saturn is already not only on the rise, but crossing over (or about to) the 7th house into the most outward or successful (harvest time) part of the chart. For a toddler, this means a very happy early childhood, for sure, but other than that, there is not a lot a kid can do with early success. But note that a happy early childhood is a treasure in itself and makes for a great start on life.

    Saturn will cross the top of the chart around 7-8 years of age, sending the youngster into the beginning of a much more inward time and series of years. This will reach a major turning point around 14-15 years of age, just when most kids are looking to learn about others, socially. In this case, we have just the reverse happening, our late bloomer is entering the formative or obscure sector, when everyone else around them is enjoying some kind of social adjustment or success.

    So the years from 14 to around 21 years of age will be more inward and, for a teenager, perhaps even very lonely, because they are zigging when everyone else is zagging. During this formative sector, each of us is very much on our own, sort of out of touch with our social sense, and just about as far away from being recognized and successful as one can get. The first sector is opposite the third or social sector. In this sense, it is hard for anyone to come to our aid, because we don't know ourselves at this point. We are in an experience that we are not yet out of enough to be aware of. That idea.

    However, at 21 years of age or so, as Saturn crosses the 4th house cusp, all this changes and a much belated process of self discovery takes place, thus the title: Late Bloomer. Our late bloomer makes up for lost time, and in the strength of their early twenties increasing builds self-confidence at a rapid rate. This rapid growth takes greater fire as Saturn crests the 7th house cusp around thirty years of age and moves into what astrologers have called the most successful sector, that of harvesting - getting a return for our investment.

    And we can look forward and see that around 37-38 years of age, Saturn will cross the tenth house cusp, ending this part of the success cycle, and marking the advent of yet another one.

    With this placement of Saturn you may seek a father figure in your partner, someone who can teach you how to stand on your own two feet and succeed in the world. Or, your intimate relationships may be arenas in which you and your partner explore and grow in responsibility and self-discipline together.

    My reply:

    Well, that doesn't sound heterosexual--seeking a father figure over a mother figure.

    I guess if I had the Moon or Venus on the DS, I would seek a feminine archetype.

    Hm, Saturn and Mars would have me seek out men.

    Saturn on the Descendant

    On a soul level, a separative tendency deep within makes it difficult for you to relate to others.
