Mars conjunct Saturn denotes an important time for working through fear themes, low ego energy, responsibilities with family or career, hard work, commitment themes, lowered physical energy, and perhaps some self-esteem issues. This can be a tricky passage for feeling safe, valued, heard, understood and supported in your relationships. Handling situations from a mature, grounded and responsibly aware energetic is the call of the Mars Saturn conjunction that is in effect from March 31 - April 4th.
Additionally, for those of you working with dimensional energy and co-creating principals the Mars Saturn conjunction is a time to ameliorate any situations and energy patterns that no longer serve your growth and healing. No doubt, tension is the fuel for growth and evolution. Seen in this light, you surrender the apathy and fear to your higher self/God/love and ask for new interpretations, approaches and perceptions.
Mars is associated with the Solar Plexus the chakra above the belly button and the source of the astral-desire body of the personality. Earning the "right" to lead may be a focus if the inner work has been done. From the personality level the ability to dominate and move beyond limitations in the 3rd dimensional vibration is a focus.
Mars Saturn in the natal birth-chart indicates someone who is willing to work towards success and build sustainable structures. Saturn also deals with the reality fabric and is the master of manifestation and conscious reality creation.
You may have to work through an issue or situation during this transit. A health issue with teeth or bones may arise. Mars Saturn can feel contracting and heavy. Guard and tend to your health and energy and please treat yourself and others with tenderness and care ~
