Natal Saturn in Seventh House
Saturn has a serious, responsible, restricting energy in astrology. When this planet is placed in the seventh house in the natal chart, you can expect these energies to manifest in the life area of committed, one-on-one relationships (both marriage and business partnerships).
Saturn in seventh house people are interested in serious people with serious plans for the future.
They want a committed, long-term relationship.
But Saturn is also about restrictions and blockages: with this placement, you tend to meet the perfect partner only later in life. Not just in the area of life, generally speaking, you find the right people later.
Alternatively, your partners can be much older than you. They are usually well-established in life.
When young, Saturn in seventh house people are usually very shy. The root of this is often the relationship with a parent.

When young, you seek maturity in your relationships, but once you are mature yourself enough, you find it in yourself.
In the natal chart, a challenging Saturn suggests that your relationship with one of your parents (usually the more authoritative one) wasn’t supporting and free of conflicts.
These childhood issues reflect on your relationships as an adult, and prevent you from dating someone who would be a perfect match. In addition, sometimes there is a fear or loosing your partner.
