What are the consequences of Mars and Saturn conjunction in general?
“What are the consequences of Mars and Saturn conjunction in general?” is a question I answered on Quora.

Mars and Saturn in any challenging aspect as the conjunction, square, quincunx and opposition, is an opportunity and recipe for maturity and awakening.
Mars wants to act and go forward with energy and drive. Saturn will go forward but only in a measured and secure way – which amounts to slowing down, resisting or blocking the drive of Mars.
The tendency will be to either drive with the brakes on – requiring a lot of energy spent going against the tide. Or a tendency to be forceful and reckless – finding oneself making mistakes, being impatient, riding rough-shod over others – and probably having to start projects from scratch again.
One learns to think things through before acting, to manage things better and develop patience, be less stressed. One learns, usually the hard way, to be kinder to oneself and others. One learns to go forward at a steady and measured pace with improved timing. And/or indeed develop the instinct to know when not to take action at all.
It can be a lonely journey (feeling up against it at times) but when the two themes are working together in harmony there can be real long-term success in the making. One is wiser through the experience.
By the way I have Mars (Scorpio/8th house) squaring Saturn in Leo/5th. Mars is also my chart ruler. I still get it wrong.
