On December 24, I was thinking about Mercury and Saturn. I gave a few examples of scientist (Van der Waals, Einstein and Asimov) with a tight aspect between Mercury and Saturn or with both planets prominent in their charts.
Now I collected more example charts to support the idea that Mercury-Saturn = officially recognized knowledge = science.
There is a differentiation in the way the Mercury-Saturn pattern shows itself. They are also different kind of scientist. Still, the picures almost speak for themselves. Where needed I added a comment in the drawing of the chart.
PS there is a minor 15 degree aspect between Mercury and Saturn in the chart of Hertz.
PPS Another example of Mercury conjunct Saturn is Tycho Brahe. Click for the post about his chart...
