Synastry Chart Aspect Meaning
The Saturn partner leads the Mercury partner to the necessary lessons, tells them about the responsibility, burden and the means to achieve wisdom, which will add fullness to their existence. Mercury partner needs to gain Saturn's respect, and so tends to develop. More frivolous qualities of Mercury are constrained, as Saturn imprints the wisdom of a mature consciousness on the puerile qualities of the Mercury partner. Mercury asks questions and gets serious answers in the form of proverbs, teachings and quotations; these serious reactions help to develop confidence. This aspect represents a child who looks into the eyes of his father and says, "Dad, will you teach me?" - and the father teaches.
