Mars by Velazquez
Mars is the symbol of many things and one of those things is ‘infection’. Saturn is the symbol of many things and one of them is ‘precaution’.
 Today, for example, I posted about Margareth Thatcher’s transit Saturn conjunct Mars (now that she is in hospital). 

The combination Mars-Saturn is the combination of many other things, too. Continue for more about Mars-Saturn and links to posts with examples of the effect of Mars-Saturn in natal charts, progressions/transits and synastry. All in all it is about inevitable, obligatory action or inactivity based upon duty, age, fear or caution. 

Discipline and strict measures are among the meanings of Mars-Saturn, and so is death (end of all energy). With a prominent Mars-Saturn in the natal chart discipline might be (too) important. In progressed charts and with transits this aspect sometimes ends lifes, activities or drives in general. And as astrology can’t be used for judgement, the Mars-Saturn aspect is sometimes beneficial (to do what is your 'duty', to act with responsibility) and sometimes not (death, slapping). All examples of Mars-Saturn refer to the basics of Mars-Saturn: the combination of drives/energy and duty/restrictions. Here are more links to Mars-Saturn stories. They are stories about death, heroes, discipline, slapping, being fired, falling with injury, nasty competition and more...But don't worry. 

Sometimes with Saturn's transit with Mars you just finish a job or end an acitivity (but it might hurt a bit). An example is that of one of my readers whose little boy started his school career with transit Saturn on her Mars. It marks the end of a period of activities (related to her son's age and age is Saturn, too). Sometimes change is just as scary as some of the events in the list of examples. All in all it is about inevitable, obligatory action or inactivity based upon duty, age, fear or caution.  
Often Mars-Saturn is being related to hard labour. The man or woman with a hard Mars-Saturn aspect and working too hard might just be driven by fear over the manager's judgement...Fear or duty can drive a person and it can stop a person or be ineffective. 

LINKS to posts with examples of the effect of Mars/Saturn:
On October 10 I mentioned the death of Solomon Burke with transit Saturn square progressed Mars…
This is an example of death.

General McChrystal had to quit his job. One of the indications was transit Saturn square Mars…
This is an example of ending an activity.

With transit Saturn sesquisquare natal Mars Lance Armstrong fell in the Tour de France and injured his face..
This is another example of ending an activity.

Here is a link to a post about Mars-Saturn and slapping (when a person is being disciplined or intimidated). 
It is another ‘tough measure’ of precaution (in the eyes of the slapper).

Bobby Brown has Mars inconjunct Saturn…See the post about him…

I wonder if it was a random shooting, since the Saturns of two of the victims (born 14th September 1957 and 22th June 1957) are exactly square the Mars of Amy Bishop. The combination of Mars and Saturn is refers to fear and blocked energy or death.
When your Mars is on someone's Saturn you tend to see them as ' stand in the ways' or obstacles. Mars-Saturn is a nasty aspect in synastry. See:

The nasty competition Brown-Blair is visualized by the Mars inconjunct Saturn aspect in synastry…

The hero and the terrorist in the Detroit plane incident both have a Mars-Saturn aspect in the natal chart (sesquisquare and square). Mars of the hero was conjunct the Saturn of the terrorist. And the Saturn of the hero inconjunct the Mars of the terrorist. 
 It was a matter of attempt to kill and being restricted and stopped.

About Mars-Saturn and the death of Michael in the chart of Paris Jackson, see…

PS On Cafe Astrology you find more about Mars-Saturn aspects...
