In Einstein’s case, although Saturn affected his communication skills to some extent (he did not speak till he was almost six years old and had a deliberate way of thinking), it increased his concentration and tenacity.

A classic example of Einstein’s perseverance (almost a stubbornness) was his “unification” theory on which he spent nearly twenty years, and stuck to it till the end of his life. Steve Jobs of Apple is the best example of practical inventive ideas (Mercury in Aquarius aspected to Saturn).

Saturn goes around your chart in 29 to 30 years and makes many different angles to your natal Mercury. Its negative transits increase delays in getting through to people and problems with transportation as well. Even an adverse transit from Saturn increases your discipline, focus, concentration, and your ability to accept responsibility and authority. Most scientists, supervisors and those in positions of authority are born with a Saturn-Mercury aspect.

For achievement, Saturn is very helpful when it makes an aspect to Mercury in a bright sign like Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius and Pisces. It is inhibiting for Mercury in Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio and Capricorn, who can become very cautious and narrow-minded.

When Saturn makes an adverse aspect to your natal Mercury (conjunction, square, and opposition and other minor aspects), you will experience delays in your projects, negotiations and contractual matters. Quite often, things may get misplaced or lost in the mail. If you are born with a natal adverse aspect between Saturn and Mercury, then it is like having Mercury retrograde all the time! If you are going through it by transit, then the same principle applies for the duration of the transit. If you have Mercury in Capricorn, then you might also experience most of the points given to some extent.

When you encounter delays in any area, the best way to deal with it would be to get to the root cause of it and to re-evaluate your organizing ability. In the long run, you will manage your time better and become more productive in your work. Use more efficient software or computer system, delegate some of the work, plan ahead and schedule different projects to offset the negative effects of this transit.
