April Elliott Kent – Soulmates or Cellmates?: Saturn in Synastry




Talk of soulmates conjures romantic visions of gentle, idealistic, and unquestioning devotion. But maybe soulmates are designed to help us do the very hard work of becoming better versions of ourselves. That’s when it’s time to talk about another “s” word: Saturn. Saturn connections between two charts offer a clear roadmap to identifying the work we have to do together—and a cautionary tale against letting self-improvement take all the fun out of love.
In this lecture:
A look at chart examples of couples involved in various types of relationships and how Saturn’s themes are expressed between them.
How the natal chart, and the nature of the relationship itself (boss, spouse, family member, friend), influence the way we react to Saturn contacts from someone else.
How Saturn brings us together, encourages us to grow, and keeps us united through tough times.
