In this age of social distancing there are certain traditional aspects considered to be rather challenging that many may now find beneficial.
Saturn is a planet that often denies, blocks, isolates and puts people and matters at a distance. If you’re born with Saturn opposite Venus you know what I mean. This aspect often requires hard work to gain intimacy with others. The relating principle doesn’t come easily. Because of the difficulty and struggle maintaining closeness in a relationship, many spend large amounts of time alone in their own company. They learn how to be in solitude and make peace with that reality.
In this day of social distancing I’ve heard from those with this aspect that while they are experiencing some cabin fever, they can adapt to being alone for great lengths of time much better than others. They have already found out how to use their time wisely from years of being alone and having to be more reflective and introspective.
This aspect can also cause bitterness and resentment in some, but only if the person has no sense of reflecting inwards. With time and maturity comes the realization that being alone isn’t necessarily a prison sentence. You get to know yourself better. Obviously there are downsides like finding it difficult to compromise and building up walls through mundane routines and habits. But there are downsides to being in relationships as well.
This would also be true if Saturn opposes the ruler of the 1st or 7th houses. It works on a very similar fashion since the ruler of the 1st represents my whole approach to life and the ruler of the 7th represents how I experience relationships and the outside world in general.
